Helix Cognitive Computing


By using a next-generation peer-to-peer digital exchange network, based on its own distributed ledger – the HelixTangle, the HelixMesh Protocol and a native currency – the HLX coin, Helix has been developing a new digital ecosystem with strategic focus on cutting-edge technologies based on decentralized distributed systems and cognitive computing.



Helix Services

The primary use case of Helix is to provide a decentralized network infrastructure for computing resources, with a focus on edge computing and IoT devices.

Services are also being developed by interested third-parties and may include but do not restrict to:

- Financial Services
- Manufacturing
- Public Services
- Automotive Services
- Healthcare/Life Sciences
- Legal advices
- Education
- Software Development
- Tech Industry
- Research Institutes



Helix Applications

Once Helix is populated with seed applications, it will enable entirely new business models with interactions where end users can be businesses, single individuals, or even non-humans – thereby making it an ideal platform, e.g. to run very efficient machine-to-machine (M2M) transactions.

Helix wants to create an open development environment where users, students or employees, can create decentralized programs.



Helix API

The Application Programming Interface (API) acts as a connector between the Services & Applications and the HelixNetwork.

It allows interaction with the HelixNetwork.

The API layer is a set of libraries built on top of the primitives to interact with the HelixNetwork in a specified and well-behaved manner.

HelixTangle & HelixMesh

The bottom level is the HelixNetwork where light and full nodes interact based on the HelixMesh Protocol.

The Helix Network relies on an efficient and cryptographically secure hashing function, SHA-3 and Winternitz Signatures. The consensus about the transaction log is reached by FullNodes expected to be online 24/7 on their best effort.

Light clients submit transactions to a FullNode of their choice. This design fits well into a typical setup of low-power IoT devices (light clients) connected to an edge server (FullNode).

The data and the transactions are stored in a novel distributed ledger - the HelixTangle
