3.2 NodeOs

Installing the Xend Browser on any device also entails the installation of NodeOs, which the device's owner can freely activate or deactivate. NodeOs offers several capabilities:

  • The ability to set up and operate a MicroNode, which

    • Allows to use the device as one AssetChain validation device

    • Requires linking with a Xend ID.

  • Setting up a rotating uptime or backup procedures

    • Users with multiple devices linked to the same Xend ID, all running NodeOS, can implement a 'rotating uptime' strategy for validation. This approach involves programming the devices to alternate their active periods, such as switching every 8 hours. This ensures continuous validation activities without overburdening any single device, maintaining optimal network participation and device longevity.

    • For users with multiple devices, employing them as backup validators offers a resilient solution. Should one device become unavailable, a secondary device can automatically assume the role, stepping in to continue the validation process as a backup MicroNode. This seamless transition helps maintain the required uptime rate for the associated Xend ID, ensuring uninterrupted network participation.

  • Transforming the device into a comprehensive hardware ledger that includes:

    • A Xend ID,

    • NodePay, a feature enabling the device to facilitate both physical and virtual transactions,

    • A Hybrid Wallet, which provides seamless access to the user's Xend Exchange and OAE wallets associated with their Xend ID.
