Dear DeepBrain Chain Community Members,
As stated in previous reports, DeepBrain Chain is on its way to a truly decentralized way of running the project. In the past week we have finalized our community developer group, which will operate with a certain level of autonomy. DBC will continue to support this group to work independently alongside DBC to pursue mutual goals.
DeepBrain Chain has also started drafting other community committee plans, these committees will serve as independent parties under the Foundation. The goal of these committees is to create an unbiased, transparent and efficient ecosystem for which DBC will grow.
We have also finalized the new roadmap for the year of 2019, please see below:
Short Term Targets
In the next couple of months we expect to hit a few targets. First of which, will be touched on further in our next bi-weekly, that is the deployment of the test chain.
The following four are aimed at improving the AI training net experience for users. This is through the following:
- Computer Power Verification
By designing a system which verifies each nodes network potential/status/authenticity and health, we can ensure that the network remains stable for clients.
- Support DBC to Fiat for Compute
Enabling users of the AI training net to conveniently purchase DBC tokens in order to utilize computing power and the greater network.
- Server Inspection Interface
This will enable users to inspect all details of a node on the network in far greater detail. Making it easier to see which option is more suited to their needs.
- Support DBC Web Wallet
Users will be able to deposit/withdraw DBC directly to and from their accounts on the DeepBrain Chain website for use on the AI training net.
1. Tech Progress
- Completed doc matrix fast forward function;
- Created opencl image for users who ned image processing function;
- Realized dbc compute docker’s port mapping. If the compute node itself has a public IP then it can map the port inside the docker when creating compute mission, so that one can use ssh computing environment directly and avoid using ngrok proxy;
＊the example below will need the ssh port (22) of the docker mapping to the 1022 port of the compute node:
2. Marketing Plan
In order to have a healthy, transparent, sustainable development of the DeepBrain Chain Foundation and project, the Foundation has decided to design a community automated management mechanism, the initial thoughts are to have the following five committees:
- Community Autonomy Committee
- Community Technology Committee
- Community Consensus Committee
- Community Supervisors Committee
- Community Investment Committee.
During the month of May, the Foundation will be outlining more details for the structure of these committees, the roles they play, incentives to be involved and how they work along side as well as independently from the Foundation. From June to August we will let the wider DBC community review these plans and collect feedback, from September to December will will finalize these plans and launch in the following year, 2020.

If you would like to take part in our community developer group, we are now accepting expressions of interest. You may contact the admins or community devs, in our English Telegram.
We are expecting to roll out developer incentives and bug bounties in the near future, so if you are interested in taking part early, please do get in touch.
A more detailed explanation of roadmap goals will be provided in the following bi-weekly reports, for specific questions about any targets please join our Telegram channel to find out more.
