Holochain is a distributed computer network that performs faster than the blockchain technology, which has infinite scaling capacity through its peer-to-peer networking and is based on cloud computing. The performance of the network does not reduce on the addition of distributed applications. With a decentralized network like Ethereum’s, every node has to process the entire chain, which is present in its entirety on each node. Distribution removes the need for this redundant information, and data integrity is maintained among unlimited peers without a consensus mechanism needed. With Holochain, instead of mining, node computers will lend processing power to hosted dApps.
HOLO (HOT) is the digital token for the Holochain platform, which allows the storage and distribution of data. It is a multipurpose decentralized platform with a primary objective to create a hosting space for social applications. This platform lets the consumers host various distributed applications on their system, without any external hardware requirements. It lets the users choose the revenue in the form of hosting prices; with various options in choosing the revenue. It also uses the PoS (Proof-of-Service) protocol to generate invoices for the services that are offered.
