Introducing GemOS

Innovate with integrity.



GemOS Platform

GemOS transforms how companies capture, control, and interact with critical data across an industry of connected services.

GemOs features Identity, Data, Network and Logic management consoles that apply to use cases across multiple verticals including finance and healthcare.

If blockchains are about building global computers, GemOS is about how you use that computer to process information across an ecosystem. It's an operating system that connects our customers to the blockchain.

By leveraging blockchains as shared infrastructure, industries can establish trusted pipelines for data exchange and carry-out multi-party processes.


Network, Data, and Identity are agnostic tools that connect to data sources, registries and the underlying blockchain. Data connects to external data stores. Identity is a key management component. Network manages blockchain connections


Logic pulls components from Data, Identity and Network in order to model event logic, rule sets, and application data retrieval and delivery. The Element Library within Logic enables GemOS to address unique business processes.

GemOS Features

We provide the basic infrastructure needed to access, query, program, record, and authenticate information on a blockchain.



Data is a source manager that enables private, configurable data storage services across multiple data stores, secured against a blockchain. It’s an arbitrary data storage service that simply connects external sources to GemOS, which we can use to orchestrate schema validation, canonical serialization, and document hashing within Logic. On its own, Data is a very simple source manager, but when combined with Identity and Logic, we can begin to build identity-based access controls, multi-party directories, and data integrity checks.

Unify Data Sources

Connect data sources from different systems, and register them on a common ledger.

Retain Custody of Private Data

Create proofs-of-existence with verifiable integrity without surrendering custody of sensitive information.


Identity consists of user registries, entitlements, and keys. Identities can range from an individual person, an organization, to any connected device. Identity is the central private key management service in GemOS which allows for secure key management with provisioning verification. This uses industry leading cryptographically and secure authentication. Identity contains permissioning schema that orchestrates Elements. Populate GemOS with the structure of your organizations and their specific permission sets to control who can do or see what.

Identify Any User Type

Attach identity registries for individuals, groups, and devices, and assign a universal blockchain IDs.

Automate Multi-Party Authorization

Create entitlements for users and roles across the network and automatically enforce key-based authorization. 

Fortify User Access

Safeguard user access with industry-leading security based on PKI and hierarchical-deterministic (HD) identity trees.

Leverage Existing Services

Integrate your organization's identity and permission schemas for mirrored functionality.


Network is an adaptive layer that interacts with a blockchain and its unique properties and protocols. Network is responsible for creating, monitoring, indexing, querying, and communicating with blockchains. Data validation is off-loaded to blockchain nodes managed within Network, and normalized to an agnostic schema. Based on the blockchain network of your choice you can customize your blockchain participation with validator and read-only nodes.

Protocol Agnostic

Create flexible applications that can adapt to different protocols, like Ethereum, Hyperledger and more.

Transact in Real-Time

Send and receive blockchain data to and from your applications at the speed of the internet.

Customize Participation

Run blockchain nodes of varying sizes and functionality to fit your needs, as a validator or read-only participant. Additionally, you can connect to one or many protocols.

GemOS Logic

The orchestration layer of the global blockchain computer. 



Logic is the creative layer of the platform.

Logic pulls components from Data, Identity and Network in order to model event logic, rule sets, and application data retrieval and delivery. It acts as an event handler, receiving data to and from blockchains and applications, and processing workflows. Logic contains the Element Library to create custom logic templates to fit a number of business needs. Logic has a document registry builder with granular entitlements pulled from Identity. Logic’s schema validation object conforms documents to standardized formats as well as field validation and rules. 


Element Library

Within Logic, an Element is an event handler that orchestrates components of Data, Identity, and Network to create a process based on extendable templates in our Element Library.  These predefined templates enable reusability, portability and rapid iteration of like Elements with varied contingencies and business use cases.

Building The Internet Of Trust Selecting The Right Permissioned Blockchain For Your Organization

If there is already a market and a trusted intermediary, there isn’t as much to be gained by creating a network that looks exactly the same but with replacing the intermediary, as the intermediary often does more than just pass data. However, there isn’t a clear intermediary in all circumstances that would benefit from one. These circumstances tend to include peer to peer transactions where all the participants do not 100% trust each other, for instance, in trade finance. This creates a marketplace like mechanism, without the need for an intermediary while requiring a high level of trust. Implementing a blockchain in this model is then much cheaper, faster and less cumbersome than setting up a new intermediary.

The Future Of Medical Records: Two Blockchain Experts Weigh In

Healthcare is widely recognized among global leaders as a key policy issue. Yet health information and medical records technologies which are pivotal to the access and delivery of quality, cost-effective care to millions across the globe remain mired in a slow state of advancement. This inadequacy has sparked questions about the potential role of blockchain technology as a digital record-keeping system, all with the hopes of accelerating the progress of electronic medical records (EMR) innovation.
