OpenDHT: The Technology Behind Ring
Ring is a fully distributed system based on OpenDHT technology Ethereum Blockchain that doesn’t need any central authority, an enterprise or even a server to function. Consequently, it avoids keeping centralized registries of users and storing their personal data. In addition, Ring is based on standard security protocols and end-to-end encryption. Thus, it prevents decryption of communications over the network and consequently offers a high level of privacy and confidentiality. In addition, Ring’s technological capacity can be expanded to a wider industrial setting with use cases like Internet of Things’ projects, industrial systems as well as custom communication needs, to name a few.
