Announcing the Nebulas Technical Committee
Nebulas research and development’s current focus is Nebulas 2.0 (Nova), which is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2018, implementing Nebulas Rank, Developer Incentive Protocol and Nebulas blockchain execution environment.
At that time, Nebulas 2.0 (Nova) will become the first public chain with native incentives for developers, greatly expanding the development possibilities of community developers and helping Nebulas community’s development. To ensure the smooth realization of Nebulas technologies’ vision, we initiate the attempt of Nebulas technology community-driven development by following the objective laws of blockchain community.
Nebulas Technical Committee (NTC) will play an important role in the process of Nebulas community development, which will serve as the pilot of the community project direction and the enabler of technology implementation. NTC will adhere to the spirits of openness, sharing and transparency, and be committed to promoting the decentralization and community-driven development of Nebulas technology R&D.
Blockchain technologies open the possibilities for building new, self-motivated and open source communities. The technical concepts of Nebulas including the value discovery system, the self-evolution and the self-motivation provide a guarantee for building a world of decentralized collaboration. NTC will make every effort to realize the vision.
