The Helios platform is made up of a large
number of independent
blockchains connected through a DAG:
Every wallet address has its own blockchain that contains only transactions to or from that particular
wallet address. All blockchains are connected through a DAG formed by transactions. When a transaction takes place, it is only added to the blockchains of the sender and
receiver. The blockchains of all other wallet addresses are entirely unaffected. This completely
eliminates the bottleneck caused by requiring all transactions to be placed on a single blockchain
and allows transactions between different users to occur concurrently. The transaction throughput
also grows with the number of wallet addresses on the blockchain allowing it to scale indefinitely.
The Helios platform will be capable of executing Solidity based smart contracts and dApps. This will allow the creation of efficient, fast, and secure decentralized solutions to vastly improve systems such as governance, financial technology, energy grids, supply chains, social networking, health care, fake news, climate change etc... Furthermore, the use of Solidity as the language will enable rapid adoption by the existing development community and seamless migration of existing dApps.

This is the very first phase of the project and will have deliverables of all the groundwork and non-blockchain items. These are required to build a strong brand and community for Helios. A fundamental principle of any blockchain is to provide true freedom from centralized powers by having a fully decentralized and democratic community. Therefore, we recognize the importance of developing a strong community for the Helios project.
The Helios protocol prototype is also under active development throughout phase 1, but will be delivered in phase 2.
This phase of the project will involve ramping up blockchain development and creating all of the tools for the community to get involved in order to accelerate growth of the project. In this phase, we aim to prove that this blockchain can accomplish all of the things we say it can. We believe this phase will open the eyes of potential developers and community members and show them the true power of the Helios protocol.
Release blockchain prototype July 2018
This prototype will be a proof of concept for the new parallel blockchain protocol, consensus mechanism etc...
- Post bounties on Bounty0xJuly 2018
- Growth of Helios teamJuly 2018
Hiring more employees.
- Begin marketing and community outreach August 2018
- Release blockchain testnet November 2018
- Hackathons November 2018
Schedule hackathons to encourage dApp development.
- dApp ecosystem expansion November 2018
Reach out to Ethereum dApp developers and help them migrate to the Helios blockchain
- Initiate dApp incubator program November 2018
This phase of the project will involve continued marketing and development of the test net with support for smart contracts and dApps.
This is the final phase of development. After this phase we will continue marketing and growing the community and ecosystem indefinitely.

- Continued reaching out to dApp developers February 2019
- Growth of the community and dApps February 2019
Total Supply: 350,000,000
Ethereum contract address: 0xf5d714d9cd577b7daf83f84aea37a1eb0787e7ad. We will have a 1 to 1 swap for mainnet tokens once it is launched.
In the spirit of decentralization and democracy, we have chosen to not have an ICO. The Helios project is entirely self funded and bootstrapped. We will give away almost all of our tokens as bounty rewards, airdrops, and to fund dApp developers over a period of 3 years. Firstly, this will give everyone equal opportunity to participate in the project and ensure the tokens are distributed to a large number of individuals for improved democracy. Secondly, we will be rewarding, among others, strong community members, hard working developers, and social media influencers who help build the Helios community, project, and dApp ecosystem. These are the individuals who matter most in creating sustainable growth of a decentralized blockchain platform. By rewarding them, we will also accelerate the growth and adoption of the Helios protocol.
