Our Hybrid Network

Decentralized Workflow Automation

Using blockchain technology, LTO Network enables organizations to run B2B-workflows in a decentralized way, where parties participate via their own node.

Just as in the real world, when parties conclude an agreement, the execution of this agreement needs to be take place in the correct way. LTO Network uses decentralized workflows called Live Contracts to automate these procedures. Live Contracts contain instructions for both humans and systems on the actions that need to be executed. All parties involved in the Live Contract validate each others actions and secure data submissions.

LTO Network bursts the hype bubble and unlocks next level process efficiency. Today.

Miniature private blockchains

Horizontally scalable

Nodes can simultaneously hold and handle numerous Live Contracts. Since every Live Contract forms a private chain, nodes can spin up more VMs to handle bigger loads.

Data privacy and GDPR

Only the nodes of the participants of a particular process have access to a particular private chain. If required by law, the entire workflow with all related data can be erased.

Inside a node

User Interface

LTO makes it easy to connect your existing systems and applications to a process, since each node exposes a JSON REST API.

Event Service

The heart of the application layer is the event service. It handles all incoming events, delegating further processing to the application services.

Application Services

The application layer contains a number of services - like the workflow manager - designed to perform a specific task. Custom services may be added to the application layer.

Message Queue for Private Blockchain

Decoupling ensures a stable system even in case of bad connectivity or a high load. The message queue is the communication layer for the private chain. Two simple services manage all inbound and outbound events.

Anchoring on
Permissionless Public Blockchain

Most public blockchains primarily focus on smart contracts and scripted logic, making them slow, inefficient and overly expensive for simple transactions like anchoring. We follow logic similar to Bitcoin’s SegWit; meaning that not all data needs to be kept by all nodes forever.
Anchored in 3 seconds

Using the NG protocol, the network pre-approves transactions every 3 seconds. With other anchoring solutions you have to wait up to 20 minutes for a response.

Summary Blocks

With other public blockchains, the required disk space tends to be high, meaning synchronizing from genesis can costs days. With LTO, a summary block is generated each day, after which a node may delete the individual transactions.
