INT Chain was founded in August 2017. During the past year and a half, we have been committed to developing and improving our main chain to hopefully contribute with a truly open-source, decentralized and efficient blockchain in the IoT industry.
2019 will be a crucial year for INT Chain. In mid-late January we will launch our mainnet and continue on our journey to build a brand new IoT ecosystem. You will see numerous DApps developed on INT Chain, more real world use cases, international INT Chain meet-ups and events, a global INT community, and more. What is even more significant in January is our Thearchy Node election. To ensure real decentralization of INT Chain, we adopt a consensus mechanism of DPoS+dBFT which require that all the Thearchy Nodes (super nodes) are elected by the INT community. The Thearchy Nodes will represent the will of INT supporters. Together, we should be responsible for ensuring the running of INT Chain and be involved in building INT’s new IoT ecosystem.
On January 10th, 2019, we will release the official node plan and collect related questions for our second AMA. By then anyone who are interested in being a Thearchy Nodes can get ready for the election according to the deploy guide or other documents. And I would like to encourage our INT community members to participate in the Thearchy Node election or be a running candidate.
In addition, 5G networks will be put into commercial operation next year. INT Chain will evolve into the unprecedented stage by integrating with 5G telecommunication infrastructure. It will be the first time around the world that in the INT Project blockchain technology has been applicated in 5G-enabled IoT scenarios.
To join the INT Project will be a fascinating experience for you. Let’s build the IoT ecosystem together.
