SELF will be the engine room for sovereign applications inside a decentralised blockchain protocol called Entirety - an Operating System powered by your SELF.

Our approach towards this Operating System (OS) is based on best practices and, although relatively straightforward to comprehend, is kept front and centre in our strategic decision-making. What follows is a quick snapshot of how we view things.

In the realm of technology, the OS serves as the backbone of computing devices, orchestrating hardware and software interactions seamlessly. Its significance cannot be overstated, as it directly influences developers and users. One crucial aspect that often gets overlooked is the ease of use of an operating system. Whether you're a seasoned developer crafting intricate code or an everyday user navigating through applications, the intuitiveness and accessibility of an OS can make all the difference in productivity and satisfaction.

Streamlining Development Processes

Entirety will prioritise ease of use, with the ambition of translating this into a more streamlined development process for developers. When the tools and interfaces are intuitive and straightforward, programmers can focus their energy on writing quality code rather than grappling with convoluted system configurations or obscure commands.

Seamless Integration

Modern development often involves working with many tools, frameworks, and libraries. Entirety seamlessly integrates these components while simplifying setup and maintenance tasks, allowing developers to concentrate on actual development work. Whether it's through package managers, built-in development environments, or comprehensive documentation, Entirety will significantly boost productivity.

Accessibility of Development Resources

Ease of use will extend beyond the OS, encompassing access to development resources. Entirety will ensure that the necessary support and information are readily available, from online forums to official documentation. This accessibility fosters a vibrant community where developers can collaborate, troubleshoot issues, and stay updated on the latest trends and best practices.

Enhanced Testing and Debugging Capabilities

Creating Entirety as a user-friendly operating system will provide robust tools for testing and debugging applications. Whether it's built-in debugging utilities, compatibility testing frameworks, or performance profiling tools, developers rely on these features to identify and rectify issues efficiently. The easier it is to diagnose and address problems, the faster developers can iterate and deliver high-quality software.

Empowering User Experience

Beyond the realm of development, Entirety’'s ease of use should profoundly impact users' everyday experiences. Whether navigating through the interface, installing new software, or customising settings, Entirety must enhance efficiency and satisfaction.

Intuitive Interface Design

At the forefront of user experience is the interface design. Creating Entirety with an intuitive and user-friendly interface will minimise the learning curve for new users and reduce friction in accomplishing tasks. From straightforward navigation menus to intuitive gestures and shortcuts, every design element should prioritise usability and accessibility.

Seamless Software Installation and Updates

Users should have a seamless process of installing and updating software. Entirety should simplify these tasks as an easy-to-use operating system, whether through centralised app stores, automated update mechanisms, or intuitive installation wizards. By streamlining these processes, users can quickly access the necessary tools and applications without unnecessary hassle.

Personalisation and Customisation Options

Personalisation plays a significant role in user satisfaction. As each individual’s SELF will power Entirety, it will offer ample customisation options, allowing individuals to tailor their computing experience to their preferences. Whether adjusting system settings, choosing themes and wallpapers, or organising desktop layouts, customisation empowers users to create a workspace that suits their unique needs and preferences.


In conclusion, the significance of the above approach cannot be overstated for both developers and users. For developers, it will streamline development processes, enhance testing capabilities, and foster a supportive ecosystem. For users, it improves everyday experiences, simplifies software installation and updates, and provides opportunities for personalisation, whether crafting lines of code or navigating through applications; an intuitive and accessible operating system lays the foundation for enhanced efficiency and satisfaction in the digital age.
