A Universal Blockchain Protocol Enabling Cross-ledger Access through Business Modularization

OneLedger is a gateway protocol that will let all types of business applications or individuals connect to different blockchains via sidechains. It will simplify adoption of an integration of blockchain technology for small businesses and larger enterprises. Those business applications will be able to create their own uniquely-identified network consensus on their both private and public blockchains.

After creating digital identity, users will also be able to use blockchain based business tools that are provided on the platform. Options to create digital wallets, credit systems and arbitration mechanism will all ease the process creating and maintaining of business solutions without extensive programming knowledge or additional costs in developing those applications.

One way of looking at the vision of OneLedger is ‘Plug and Play’ for all individual or business applications that want to use blockchain. OneLedger also plans to build a marketplace where you will be able to buy custom made modules ready to plug into OneLedger.

Token usage

Users will have to pay a network fee to nodes if they want to use the Oneledger platform. They can get OLT tokens to pay the fee from running a node themselves or buying the tokens from other users.

Users can also spend OLT tokens in the marketplace for specific modules they might need that are made by the developers, this can be done on a one time fee basis or as a subscription based solution that will be coded in the smart contract.

At first OneLedger will allow anyone to run a node but after a period of time they could introduce a staking mechanism so they ensure commitment and quality of the network.

Users, businesses and developers can interact on the marketplace utilizing the token for communication and value sharing. Developers can submit their products on the ecosystem and stipulate their terms of sale only by paying the fees in OLT tokens.

OneLedger will give a development grant to the best developers and most qualified projects by leveraging the 25% of tokens reserved for the community.



Overall, team looks experienced  within their fields and have past business success and reference.

  • The hard cap of $15M. is relatively low considering OneLedger’s scope and product. Competitors with less qualified teams than OneLedger are aiming to raise at least double of what OneLedger is.
  • OneLedger looks like a promising ICO with a strong team that are capable of achieving the project’s vision.
  • OneLedger will also offer masternodes in the future which means the demand for the OLT tokens will only increase.

Comparison chart with other competition:


  • There is a lot of competition out there, and it is very hard to become a consensus protocol

  • All of this requires a lot of good partnerships, will they achieve the network effect?



In conclusion, this is a great project and it has a lot of advantages over other platforms, but having the better platform or tech means naturally becoming the winner. This requires a lot of strong partnerships, however due to the low cap it seems like a very good investment that you can flip or hold due to their big advantages in comparison with other projects.

Flipping potential

For flipping, we’re very bullish, low hardcap means ideally a great opportunity to flip it.

Long term potential

the potential is very high, they can become an ICON or Wanchain project and do 15x in the long run or higher, these kind of protocols are necessary to develop in the cryptospace.
