The original Internet was envisioned to become an open and distributed network that was scalable and fair, allowing access to data and services without surveillance or security concerns. However, in recent years, the network has become increasingly centralized and controlled by big businesses running huge data centers. This centralization has given big entities and businesses unprecedented control of the traffic and data of the network.
As a remedy to this deteriorating trend, we suggest the inception of a decentralized and consensus-driven segmented blockchain network based on a striped storage solution. The protocol allows for a completely decentralized and secure blockchain-based Internet where anybody, including private persons, can host an income-generating service node, aiding the network with compute cycles, bandwidth and storage space. To allow for complete utilization of the network, an access layer is provided, allowing for the development of protocols, services and infrastructure.
We're currently working on the UNIGRID electron wallet and a new explorer written in Java. The new wallet is coming along nicely as you can see from the videos in the blog section. The explorer will be a fast sync open source codebase any project can use. More work is also being done to complete the whitepaper so we have a blueprint in place to start working on the sidechains.
Firstly we do not have any specific dates set for each point below. Things will be worked on and released in the order shown.
Finish the website
Daemonize the wallet completely.
Build a new Java based explorer for UNIGRID and the
Finalize and release the staking pool.
Publish a somewhat finished white paper describing the
Implement a first basic electron wallet, focusing on the
most essential functionality.
Implement and push out a beta release of the
decentralized Unigrid network.
Iterative development of the different components of the
Unigrid ecosystem (white paper and other technical
specifications, wallet, daemon and the different
services we will develop to support the network).
Information on UNIGRID coin specs and masternode requirements.
