The ONT token is the main token used on the Ontology platform, while the ONG token is used to pay for transaction fees and network usage.
Ontology aims to provide a flexible and modular framework for the development of dapps and the integration of digital systems across different industries, such as finance, healthcare, and supply chain management. It uses a combination of smart contracts, identity solutions, and data exchange protocols to enable secure and efficient data sharing and collaboration.
