ABSTRACT
The new paradigm-shift driven by blockchain technologies enables everyone to access a higher level of
decentralization and privacy further to giving them the ability to build up and enjoy a completely new ecosystem.
While blockchain-enabled ecosystems grow, stabilize and mature further, users currently lack essential
services and solutions that protect their privacy, data, IDs or assets. Such solutions can unlock more complex, yet
smooth, simple and powerful, levels of interaction through blockchain-based and decentralized technologies/
systems.
With Essentia we build and offer a complete modular framework at the user’s fingertips. The framework
empowers the users with the full control and ownership over their data, IDs, information, privacy and assets. The
Essentia framework, which also works as a decentralized Operating System, can be used indifferently by humans,
machines, IoT devices and more. It integrates decentralized and centralized resourc...

THE ESSENTIA FRAMEWORK
IN A NUTSHELL

THE ESSENTIA FRAMEWORK IN A NUTSHELL
Essentia is a modular framework that is bootstrapped from a Seed by deriving its extended keys in a
hierarchical deterministic way and by associating to them their related “data” that are available encrypted on
decentralized storage or on local copies/backups. Such data are associated to their corresponding labelled
extended keys and are interpreted by the system, and by its components, as “registry entries,” configurations and
content to be used when loading their related modules that compose the framework accordingly.
The Seed represents the minimum “quantity” of information that is necessary in order to always be able to
access and use the connected data, IDs, assets, information, and so on, and to bootstrap the framework or parts
of it, by always expecting the same identical result. All the data and communications are encrypted by default.
By being the only one who has full control...

THE ESSENTIA FRAMEWORK
IN A NUTSHELL

Essentia provides a “decentralized desktop/server” experience to the users/machines and allows them to
dispose, at their fingertips, and from the single place of a trustable, secure and private environment where they
can interact with the multitude of existing decentralized services and resources, as well as with the traditional
resources, which are integrated into the framework.
Multiple decentralized digital IDs and their Sub-IDs can be used and managed, even concurrently, by a
single Seed. The IDs can be anonymous, pseudo anonymous or related with real-world data, accordingly to
whatever the user wants to do with them.
The IDs, Login, KeyRing, Dapp Centre, Wallet, Account-less Exchange, DEX, Decentralized Storage,
Prediction Markets, Decentralized VPN, Social Dapp, Crypto Nodes, and so on, are just some of the “frontend”
modules that can be activated inside the Essentia framework with a simple click. The user just needs his Seed in <...

THE ESSENTIA FRAMEWORK

Essentia is based on simple but powerful and easily replicable cryptographic operations: sign/ verify/
encrypt/ decrypt/. This allows everybody to always be able to access and use their “belongings” with minimum
effort and in any future scenario.
At Essentia, we are moving back the weighing needle to the real sense of Decentralization. Where others
are trying to re-centralize the decentralized resources by also creating artificial, if not imposed, needs of an
intermediary to the users, we are moving back from this spiral-shaped paradox and we are rebuilding the
Decentralization fungibility to a more radical and original layer. Exactly as it was intended to be since the beginning
of this new dRevolution!
The Essentia Framework main properties are:

Highly customizable Modular
Decentralized Framework for humans
and machines.

Decentralized digital IDs for humans
and machines.

INTRODUCTION
Today’s social and technological landscape is a fertile ground for new ideas, services and tools which are
being developed quickly and continuously.
Users are presented with more choice than ever before. However, choice is provided at the expense of
privacy, security and personal data usage. Often users and their data are considered the product to benefit from.
Users’ journeys are reliant on trusting third parties and intermediaries with the security of their data and software
environments. In this context, being able to effectively protect users’ privacy and data resembles a paradox.
Blockchain-based technologies have the power to solve the issues presented by this context. Yet in their
current state, these technologies will not be sufficient nor effective until users are able to easily and proficiently
interact with them. Decentralized solutions and intermediary-free services or tools are of critical importance to
enable users to rega...

WHY ESSENTIA
PAGE 8
Even if blockchain-based and decentralized technologies can lead the way out of this disturbing reality,
they haven’t yet reached a mature stage. Blockchain technologies lack layers of effective solutions enabling a
positive, prolific and friendly interaction for users. To be finally freed, users require intermediate layers that connect
them directly, easily and securely with decentralized resources, tools and services, as well as blockchain
technologies.
WHY ESSENTIA
Essentia provides a complete set of solutions to users, decentralized service providers and their
technologies. Essentia is the multi asset swiss-army knife solution that users always have in their pocket.
Providing a gateway to decentralized resources and, through them, traditional internet services, while also having
exclusive, full control, over their identity, digital life and data.
Essentia fills the solution gap of the current landscape and makes available a complete and ve...

USER BENEFITS
PAGE 9
Users can not only rely upon, and access, decentralized or virtualized resources and distributed computing
but they are also able to bootstrap and use their own personal system. They can dispose of their data, and digital
belongings, with the ease of use of a consumer solution and the full power that a decentralized framework can
provide.
