Newton: The infrastructure for a protocol-based economy.

Project stage

Beta version

Detailed description

Digital Identity and Credit
Users can manage and control access to their digital assets by using a digital identity. Digital assets include; cryptocurrencies, personal data, personal credit and anything that exists in a binary format and come with the right to use.

Users can control and set different privacy modes for corresponding digital assets, and price the digital assets.

Supply Chain
By using such techniques as “Atom Hashing” we can create a unique digital identity for commodities over the whole network. Through this digital identity a user can check the relevant information on any commodity at any time.

Once information on each operation of a product enters the Newton Supply Chain, that information will be stored on the Newton blockchain. This ensures no tampering with the data once it is stored on the Newton blockchain.

Through smart contract Newton can pre-set commercial exchanging rules to realize automatic insurance claims and property rights transfer. This will reduce the transaction costs and promote cooperation efficiency.

Digital Marketing
Advertisers can set marketing plans through various built-in marketing smart contract templates in the system. This includes incentive modes, settlement modes, and dynamic price adjusting rules.

Advertisers can audit ongoing and completed marketing contracts. By calling out the DAI system, an advertiser can conduct market research before marketing activities, and analyze the results after the marketing activities.

Trading and payment
The Newton trading and payment platform will enable a user to define transactions using the built-in smart contract templates and rule engine. This enables the user to include: multi-party transactions based on complex business rules, settlement rules, smart insurance contracts, smart financial contracts, and external chain service.

Newton supports cross-border transactions, micro payments, lightning settlements and more to provide comprehensive online and offline payment tools.

Reliable physical tunnel
Based on NewChain and NewIoT technologies Newton is capable of designing a reliable physical tunnel protocol and define manufacturing specifications of related equipment. Any third party can manufacture safety equipment according to the protocol specification.

Automatic finance
Developers can define smart financial contracts based on the built-in smart contract templates on; insurance, lending and investment, including digital identity and credit, KYC information, staking the Newton token, contract rules and external chain service. The system will automatically match smart financial contracts and automatically complete transactional matching.

Developers can access NewNET through the NNIO (NewNET IO) protocol, using storage services, computing services and domain names.

Through smart storage contracts, smart computing contracts, smart domain name contracts, developers can quickly and innovatively develop applications.


Newton project aims to find how to use blockchain technology to solve cross-border, cross-organizational, cross-platform business transactions all over the world, so that to reduce unnecessary commercial friction, and make asset, cash, information traceable and flow smoothly.

NewChain adopts a main chain and sub-chain design scheme. The sub-chain supports multiple consensus mechanisms and data structures, ensures the assets transactions between the main chain and sub-chains, and between sub-chains.

Atom Hashing
By using radiometric dating, PCA, machine vision, and deep learning technology, the hashing ID is generated.

NewNET, which consists of a large number of nodes, is an open cloud computing network.

Blockchain fog computing, communication protocols between IoT devices and gateways, and NewChain IoT devices development specifications.


Users own the data
Users secure and control their personal data through cryptography, and can then manage their personal credit. Users share the profit produced by data in a pre-agreed manner.
Personal credit can be automatically created in a free and open manner without authoritative intermediaries. This methodology will reduce human intervention and facilitate the coordination between people, between machines and between people and machines.
More effective incentive mechanism
Replacing traditional business intermediaries by technology protocols will reduce the transactional cost and reward each who contributed in the transaction; such as service providers, consumers and other participants connected by the value-based Internet.
New organizational structure and cooperation mode
The community economy managed by non-profit foundations will replace the monopoly of intermediary platforms managed by traditional for-profit organizations. Based on open, fair, and rational rules every contributor will benefit from the economy and become a part of the economy.
