Technology
That’s Built To Use

Technology Overview

Neblio is an open-source, decentralized, and secure blockchain platform built for a wide variety of enterprise-level applications and services. Use cases include Supply Chain, Records Management, Gaming, Asset Tracking, Identity Management, and many more. 

Our core vision is simplicity and making blockchain development easily accessible. Through our RESTful API SDKs available in eight of today’s most popular programming languages, we offer easy integration with both legacy and new application architectures looking to benefit from blockchain technology. 

The Neblio blockchain supports the tokenization of both physical and digital assets through Neblio Token Protocol-1 (NTP1). Neblio’s large block size and fast block time enable lightning-fast transactions, individualized token metadata, and high transaction throughput.

Neblio Wallets

Neblio offers a variety of wallets depending on your needs. Most users will choose between the Core Desktop wallets and the Orion web wallet.

The Core Desktop Wallets enable your computer (or Raspberry Pi) to join and help operate the Neblio Network while also supporting NTP1 token transactions and NEBL staking.

The Neblio Orion web wallet operates in your computer or mobile phone’s web browser allowing the transfer of NEBL and NTP1 tokens from virtually any device. Orion does not currently support the network via staking NEBL.

IPFS is integrated with NTP1 to allow NTP1 metadata & files to be extended off-chain beyond the 4kB on-chain size limit, expanding the capabilities and use cases of Neblio & NTP1

Future

Interoperability Research
Research current & upcoming blockchain interoperability platforms and how they may benefit Neblio. Explore ways NEBL & NTP1 tokens could be used on other blockchain platforms (Ethereum, Polkadot, Hyperledger, etc) as well as ways assets from other platforms could be brought to the Neblio blockchain. 

Future

Hardware Wallet Research
Explore ways NEBL & NTP1 tokens can be secured via hardware wallets such as Ledger & Trezor. If hardware wallets are unable or unwilling to support Neblio natively, explore ways by which we can add hardware wallet support directly to Neblio Core, or Neblio Orion. Any hardware wallet implementation should also support Neblio Cold Staking.
