Ontology is a complex distributed trust network that serves a diverse range of enterprises and projects, allowing their permissioned enterprise blockchains to build on top of Ontology's public blockchain network, interacting as they see fit, without compromising private data.
At its launch, Ontology chose to forego the popular initial coin offering (ICO) model in favor of a series of community distributions and airdrops of its ONT cryptocurrency, which began life as a NEP-5 token on the NEO blockchain.
This helped to quickly establish both organic price discovery and a passionate community and helped the project to avoid subsequent regulatory scrutiny.
For example, for a brief period any person who signed up for the Ontology newsletter received an airdrop of free 1,000 ONT, which reached a value of $10 per token soon after the token became listed on major exchanges like Binance.
Ontology launched its own mainnet in July 2018 and now operates independently from the NEO blockchain.
Ontology was founded in 2017 by the Chinese company OnChain, who also created NEO, sometimes referred to as the "Chinese Ethereum." The founding members include blockchain veterans Jun Li (current CEO) and NEO co-founders Da Hongfei and Eric Zhang.
Ontology offers a variety of real-life use cases and allows businesses to build their own blockchain on top of the Ontology blockchain.
Importantly, Ontology offers more flexibility for enterprises, allowing them to create customized blockchains to fit their specific needs in terms of features like governance and enhanced privacy, functionality that competitors like competitors like Ethereum and NEO lack by design.
Ontology further provides additional features such as smart contracts, cryptographic identity proofs (ONT ID) and tokenized data (DDXF) that can seamlessly be transferred between different blockchains.
Example: A patient's medical records, subject to strict data privacy laws in most countries, may be utilized across the Ontology network without compromising the integrity and privacy of the patient's data. The medical business that is transferring the confidential data is able to control what is shared with other parties and under which conditions, with no fear of patient data falling into the hands of unauthorized parties.

Ontology has a total coin supply of 1,000,000,000 ONT, of which nearly 80% are currently in circulation.
At its launch, 15% of ONT tokens were allocated to its core team, 10% to the NEO council, 28% to institutional partners, 10% to its technical community and 25% to the development of its ecosystem.
These tokens were subject to a strict screening process and various unlocking periods that ran over two years until the end of October 2020. Read more about its token distribution here.
The Ontology network is fully decentralized and therefore highly resistant against hacks, which would have to affect over half of connected devices to make an impact.
Both ONT and ONG are listed and supported by the world’s leading exchanges such as Binance and OKEx, with the exception of Coinbase. It is now possible to purchase cryptocurrencies like Ontology and Bitcoin directly by credit card. To find out how, read more here.
