Xenio runs on a dedicated peer-to-peer network that powers more than just our Xenio blockchain. Real-time video streaming, chat, and other P2P features such as distributed encrypted storage are being built to support the Xenio gaming system.
The global Xenio peer-to-peer mesh network is the foundation that all aspects of the Xenio ecosystem are built upon. In the early conceptualization stages of the Xenio project, we identified a need for providing off-blockchain services. Naturally, given the distributed nature of the project, we settled on a peer-to-peer model to provide these services due to the resiliency in the event of a network split and ease of end-user management of a P2P network. The Xenio P2P implementation works behind the scenes to support a growing list of services, including the primary Xenio blockchain, direct P2P end-to-end encrypted chat, video streaming, and other services using a single node identifier.
Distributed P2P network
A Xenio user only needs to log in to the Xenio client with their user account credentials, and they have instant access to all the services Xenio provides, even outside of the primary blockchain.
The power behind any distributed system is the number of nodes available to serve content. As with any system designed to serve a number of functions to a broad audience, some services on the Xenio platform may be used less often than others. By using the same primary Xenio P2P network that all other nodes connect to, participating nodes may selectively turn services on and off without reducing the availability of less often used services to other nodes. Even the smallest service benefits from the strength of the entire network.
