CXO (CX Object Systems) is the Skycoin immutable object system, previously called Aether. Designed to replace current conventional methods of peer-to-peer sharing, CXO creates a robust storage system that supersedes services like BitTorrent, Dropbox, and Google Drive. Data is replicated peer-to-peer utilizing the Skycoin CXO library.
CXO incorporates and expands on the protocols utilized in other blockchain-based storage networks. CXO is an IPLD, with a built-in schema that sets constraints to classify relatable databases. InterPlanetary File Systems (IPFS) can be built on top of CXO. CXO provides data distribution over the Skywire network and is useful for data that must be secure and verifiable yet doesn't need storage on the blockchain.
