Ontology Monthly Report — October 2021 | by The Ontology Team | OntologyNetwork | Nov, 2021
Ontology is trying to build a platform with various tools and protocols all aimed at building a decentralized eco-system based on trust. The DLT initially focused on the Decentralized Identity space and is building solutions around credit scoring and data marketplaces. Although there is already strong competition in the oracle and data marketplace space, the market is large and Ontology’s existing applications in the identity solution space might help it enter these markets.
