World's First Decentralised Operating System 'DeOS' to Open in October Backed by Blockchain Technology


London, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/12/2016 --UK company Razormind announced today that its Decentralised Operating System (DeOS) will be open to the public on 10 October. DeOS is the first global public operating system powered by state of the art blockchain technology. DeOS enables public records of ownership and identity and comes complete with decentralized storage. Designed to protect your privacy, DeOS works by harnessing safe idle time on networked computers to perform tasks across thousands of machines - creating a sustained, worldwide, public supercomputer. At the heart of this platform is the DeOS Desktop which uses BitCoin as its native currency.

DeOS for Business
DeOS Desktop services include secure, private banking, secure global identity, smart assets, smart contracts, decentralized storage and computing. DeOS provides a Blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platform that organisations can use to design and deploy their own apps. DeOS provides global record keeping, safe decentralized storage, and genuinely protects your privacy through end to end encryption.

DeOS for Individuals
Most online services involve handing over personal data to complete strangers. With DeOS, which uses the blockchain to secure and protect your privacy - a family member will have complete control over who sees what, if anything at all. It's a personal and private safe space for families, friends, and colleagues to communicate and work. The blockchain means only people with permission may access data and as a user you keep ownership and control over your private items. The system is designed to work seamlessly with smartphone, Mac or PC.

The DeOS Blockchain
DeOS has been carefully sanded down over the past two years to achieve a comfortable, daily, blockchain powered experience. Razormind designed DeOS to use the blockchain itself as the CPU for any number of machines. DeOS blocks manage their computing resources and use the DeOS Platform seed nodes (miners to use BitCoin terms) to verify network transactions and create blocks.

Unlike existing options DeOS Smart Contracts can be written in mainstream languages like Java, C#, Scala, Python and Go. This means businesses can use their existing, tested code, and plug it directly into DeOS to run globally through the blockchain. DeOS takes care of availability and scaling, and tracking of business assets through the blockchain. This will simplify and speed up the development process and increase uptake of the technology.

The DeOS platform building is underway. When live, the network will controlled by the public through the DeOS Foundation in Switzerland and run in the spirit of community. The commercial DeOS codebase will be open sourced by the Foundation which will act as guardian of the network and platform. As a public non-profit organisation the Foundation is entrusted to preserve the integrity and availability of DeOS, with full responsibility for setting standards including testing and approving releases. They are forbidden from hard-forking the DeOS blockchain under any circumstances.

DeOS Team
The DeOS was conceived by Jawad Yaqub, Enterprise Architect and CEO of Razormind. Jawad Yaqub worked with finance institutions including Goldman Sachs on enterprise architecture and big data before branching out into blockchain development. Led by highly qualified professionals in their respective fields, the DeOS team is grounded in the belief that blockchain is for everyday use and should be easy and open.
