Mainnet v2.0 is coming…very soon!

The countdown has begun.

  • Fetch.ai powered spin-offs (Mettalex, Atomix)
  • New applications (Autonomous AI Travel Agents, Decentralized Delivery Network, Open Economic Framework, Agent Registry and Marketplace)
  • New use-cases (Smart City field trials with Datarella in Munich, Collective Learning, and more)


What we outlined in the roadmap for Q1:

  • Beacon World testnet: An incentivized testnet where FET holders create and operate nodes, become validators and perform other activities as we do Mainnet launch rehearsals. The first part of this, Beacon World 1 has been launched. You can find more details here.
  • The random beacon allows for the generation of secure pseudo-random numbers. A necessity for a huge number of agent-based applications.

Agent Framework

What we outlined in the roadmap for Q1:

  • AEA GUI: release of local no-code interface to interact with Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs)
  • AEA CLI: full integration of IPFS, secure private key management
  • AEA Registry: upgrades to expose additional information like AEA version compatibility and package specifications.
  • ACN (Agent Communication Network): further reliability and security improvements to ready the ACN for continuous production usage. The ACN allows agents to talk to each other and negotiate before completing a transaction
  • AEA Manager (also known as AEA GUI): As we approach agent framework v1.0.0, we’ve been releasing updates, services and tools that make it easier and easier to get started, build agents and deploy them. The AEA Manager is a desktop application which allows anyone to run AEAs developed by Fetch.ai and any other agent developer. We announced the beta-testing programme a few weeks ago. We will release the main version to the public before the Mainnet so stay tuned for further updates on that as well!
  • AEA CLI, AEA Registry, ACN — The remaining core components of Agent Framework are also being currently worked on and prepped to be updated as well to version 1.0.0 just like the other complementary components of the framework.

SOEF (Simple Open Economic Framework)

In Q1, the SOEF has been prepared for scaling, security and a broader range of search capabilities. Tests have been run on the incentive mechanisms, and the FET token use for computationally expensive searches. The results of this are expected to be published in the coming couple of months along with more detailed information for feedback from users. Q2 will cement this functionality, providing richer search, and introducing decentralized testing of the overall network and incentives. This comes with a tighter coupling to the Fetch ledger.

Collective Learning Framework

What we outlined in the roadmap for Q1:

  • CoLearn model upgrade: Improved logic for specifying a collective learning model and leaving and joining the model training process

$FET Token

There will be a bridge built between Ethereum (ERC20 FET token) and Fetch Mainnet v2.0 (Native FET token) allowing token holders to move their tokens freely between the networks. Transactions on Mainnet v2.0 will be processed far faster and with lower fees than on the Ethereum network.
