IOV: Bringing Blockchains to the People
The Blockchain Communication Protocol
Value Proposition
Team & Venture
Annex: IOV: A Blockchain Communication System - Whitepaper

The Blockchain has brought a number of promises to the world and is expected by many to
disrupt and transform financial services, organizations and global exchanges. Those
promises will likely impact many industries like Finance, Healthcare, Consumer Goods and
Governments. The blockchain appears now to be the solution to fix many technological
problems like smart contracts or proof of ownership. Even so, the problem of the most
basic and common use of the blockchain, which is to
easily and securely
receive or send a
token like a bitcoin, is yet not solved by the industry.
Within this context, the IOV community is bringing blockchains to the people. We are
committed to delivering a protocol and an application that empowers the end-users
when it comes to sending, receiving and holding tokens.

Limitations of Existing Blockchains
Major challenges of the blockchain
The usage of a blockchain is not a user-friendly concept designed for most people. It was
initially designed for cryptography enthusiasts and professionals. On the other hand, when
it comes to the actual end-users and people, blockchain platforms haven’t been able to
demonstrate a reliable, smooth, simple and secure experience to exchange di

erent values
and tokens. A combination of human error issues, the complexity of the experience and the
non-interoperability of the chains are a major problem for the end-user. For those reasons,
many individuals don’t want to use the blockchain and are skeptical about its usability.

Limitations of Existing Blockchains
The blockchain ecosystem is complex for most people
Even if most people are now familiar with the word “blockchain”, the majority of the names,
concepts and operating details is all rather complex for a user. The blockchain ecosystem is
still full of jargon and acronyms that can be intimidating for a user. In order to make
cryptocurrencies more mainstream and allow for widespread adoption, it is necessary to
simplify not only the user experience but also the access to relevant knowledge and to
empower users with the ability to act on the blockchain.

The ability to act on the blockchain involves the concept of wallet, and here lies another
issue. A wallet is the typical interface a user uses to interface with the blockchain and each
blockchain typically has its own public address format (Bitcoin:
1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN1 and Ethereum:

3f9E40E224cAA5118f274). These public addresses are not easy

Limitations of Existing Blockchains
The human error problem
A large number of transactions end up in errors and loss of funds. Even if the blockchain
itself is secure to send a digital from one user to another, there is always the possibility of
human error. It can be very easy to lose or waste tokens by sending them to an address not
present on the blockchain. As of today, nearly 30% of the total Bitcoin created is likely to be
lost or put out of circulation, due to human errors.
Exchanging tokens is a painful experience or the interoperability problem
Today, it is quite challenging for the end-user to turn a token to another. The process in
most circumstances is extremely dependent on third parties for the exchanges and the

ect has been counterintuitive. Some fundamental goals of blockchain were to limit the
transactions costs and remove the necessity of the middle man. Meanwhile, exchanges
have constantly increased their fees and created dependence on themselves to users.

IOV’s Solution
Our commitment
Delivering a tangible solution to the people. As entrepreneurs, experts in cryptocurrency,
and digital technologists, we believe the time has come to deliver the promises of the
blockchain to the real world and to re-empower the people with this technology. Our goal is
to fix three major problems of the blockchain today when it comes to sending, receiving
and exchanging tokens:

the ease for the user with the IOV wallet and the value address naming

the safety for the user with the Atomic Cross Swap feature of the IOV wallet

the ease for the blockchain entrepreneur to connect his new blockchain to the ecosystem
thanks to the Blockchain Name System and the deployment tools.

IOV’s Solution
The IOV Wallet, the first generation of wallets designed for Everyone
The IOV Wallet will be the first wallet to implement our
Blockchain Communication
, or BCP. It is able to send, receive and exchange any kind of cryptocurrency from
a single address of value. As soon as a blockchain implements the BCP protocol, its token
will be transferrable via the IOV Wallet.
A comprehensive human value address
In order to solve the problem of the human error, such as sending a bitcoin to a wrong address,
the user can register a human readable address:
Instead of sending a token to an address such as

Two users would just have to send tokens to each other via addresses such as:

This feature will make participating in transactions a seamless, easy and trustworthy experience.

IOV’s Solution
The Atomic Swap
the possibility to exchange any Token without third-party exchanges
Thanks to the atomic cross swap technology, it will be possible to make blockchain
interoperable and to exchange tokens without the need to use a third-party exchange.

Atomic swaps, also known as atomic cross-chain trading, make it possible for two parties
to exchange one token for a di

erent one, without the need to involve a third-party. It is a
smart contract technology that is cryptographically powered and by leveraging atomic
swaps, the risk of one party evading the payment of another is eliminated. This results in a
system which makes inter-blockchain transactions secure for all parties involved.

Any wallet implementing BCP will be able to operate atomic swaps with tokens belonging
to BCP implementing Blockchains.
