Research on algorithms for BlockFin, Storecoin’s fork-tolerant, decentralized, leaderless BFT consensus engine.
Research and develop economic, governance, and security models for Storecoin DyPoS.
Prototype first version DyPoS on top of Tendermint. Prepare tests to measure baseline consensus efficiency.
Release BlockFin whitepaper for internal review. DyPoS burst-mode consensus efficiency of 10.2K txs/sec in a 21-node setup. Start data modeling and design of core BlockFin consensus engine.
Prototype p2p secure data store. Model economic incentives for BlockFin. Build Fort Knox, Storecoin’s secure, distributed development and deployment process. Build prototype for Storecoin wallet. Create GitHub projects for open-source contributions from development community. Start development on core BlockFin consensus engine.
Build security model for p2p data store and test against attack vectors. Test p2p data store for resilience and throughput in a 220 node network. Evaluate wallet partners. Build BlockFin simulator to prove correctness.
Core open-source modules are ready. Integrate BlockFin and p2p secure data store and prepare for alpha testing in a private network with 220 validator and 50 message nodes.
Measure and test performance and security characteristics of BlockFin in the test network. Work with third-party security auditors for independent audit of the code and runtime. Economic modules added to DyPoS. Prepare for public beta of DyPoS with BlockFin.
Prepare to introduce dGuard security worker. Address security issues discovered during independent audit. Launch public beta of BlockFin for DyPoS with the potential production configuration. Start collecting KYC/AML information of first group of validators.
Complete Storecoin wallet integration with Storecoin blockchain. Address performance and security issues discovered during public beta. Set in place a process so the security branch of Storecoin can identify bad actors for protocol violations.
Launch Storecoin public blockchain with at least 22 validator nodes geographically distributed, with a capacity of up to 220 validators. Public availability of fully functional Storecoin wallets. STORE distributed to wallet owners.
Increase the number of validators in batches up to the threshold of 220 validators for greater decentralization. Introduce dGuard into the network when this threshold is reached for automatic and round-the-clock security monitoring. Start Implementation of Masternode/eAgent workers for near instant block validation with large number of validators.
Alpha of governance with decentralized GovNode workers. Test communication and voting for governance in the test network. Start security and performance characterization of Masternode/eAgent on the overall BlockFin network.
US money transfer license secured. Prepare for independent security audit of GovNodes. Prepare to introduce Masternode/eAgent workers in the test network.
Launch Masternode/eAgent nodes into the main network.
Storecoin moves to a non-profit foundation. Public availability of developer APIs on top of Storecoin wallet infrastructure.
Launch GovNodes with BlockFin for a censorship resistant governance with checks and balances.
