Intention of the project is to revolutionize Data Distribution on the Internet.

DECENT Development plan and Roadmap

in which the communication flow is secured and timestamped by the blockchain mechanism.

SOFTWARE SALE



Start day:   11th of September 2016!

DECENT ICO Start Update

DECENT Software Sale is a one-time opportunity to become a basic element of Blockchain driven decentralized future of media.





After creation of the basis of the Network and establishing its security features we need your help.
In order to give all the people around the globe a possibility to enjoy independent and borderless Content Distribution Network, we need to bring DECENT to life.

Don't miss your chance and JOIN the future!

Participants of the Software Sale will be able to purchase DCTs using Bitcoin.
Any further sale related information will be published on the official website of DECENT Software Sale.

The proceeds from the sale will be allocated and used in the following categories:
Development and Operations, Legal Contingency, Marketing and Community outreach and Blockchain development.


DCT ISSUANCE


DCT is not just a cryptocurrency. Representing a fuel to the network it is a software tool which makes DECENT work. DCT holders will be able to trade the currency for other assets as other cryptocurrencies or digital content. Once the DECENT Platform is launched DCT will be available for trading or usage across the publishing and buying process on the Platform. DCT also serves as an anti-spam protection and reward for seeders/miners (or publishers in DECENT terminology).

After the launch of the final release of DECENT Network, DCT will be issued according to the Software Sale results.
DCT sold in the September Software sale will be 70% of the total DCT distributed. Part of this will be also pre-mine funds that will be distributed in following way:

10% for the DECENT Foundation
2% for the Investment Fund
1,000,000 DCT for DECENT Bounty program
3,000,000 DCT for Pre-software marketing.

The initial value of DCT will increase simultaneously with the Software Sale progress.
Which means the early participants get more for smaller value and apply for higher bonuses.




ETH value is set according to the current BTC/ETH exchange rate. Only BTC value is determinant. More information will follow soon.

TECHNICAL DETAILS


DECENT combines several functional layers. One layer takes care of distributed storage.
We build on the results of the Tribler project, adding own extensions, such as the proof of retrievability,
to provide highly scalable, anonymously distributed, guaranteed storage that automatically scales based on the content popularity.





Download    WHITEPAPER

The heart of the solution is, of course, the blockchain. We are designing and fine-tuning several processes and associated transactions for our use cases - publishing content, buying content and providing feedback. We use a lot of underlying cryptography inside to make everything work, just naming decryption key sharing, various zero knowledge proofs, etc. The devil is in the details, so as we are still working on technicalities, for detailed description please wait for our white paper.

Last but not least, the user experience would not be full without recommendations. Since all data are available in the blockchain, anybody can execute data mining to find the most suitable content. DECENT foundation plans to incorporate their own recommendation engine for their clients, but it is totally up to the users.


USE CASES & INCENTIVES



DECENT is an Open Source protocol allowing app builders to create various applications
with the functionalities and design specifications according to their needs.


Possibilities of usage:


Medium-like blogging and publishing
Soundcloud-like music publishing
Amazon-like e-book publishing
Software sale
Shutter stock-like photo sharing
Electronic newspaper publishing
Cost-effective academic paper publishing
Indie games development
Video streaming
Audio streaming


Content Publishing / Buying process:


Upon creating the content an author’s client will encrypt it, possibly adding free preview, and create a content package.
This package is then anonymously shared with publishers/miners. These guys will be also given their encryption key shares.

The author’s wallet is debited the certain amount of tokens for publishing, which will be later distributed (based on the proof of retrievability)
to the publishers for storing the content. This way the miners are incentivized to share their disk space with the community.

The second use case is buying the content. The consumer browses the available offers, e.g. based on recommendation engine suggestions,
and can check the free preview. When he/she decides to buy it, he/she will also download the encrypted part, pay for it and retrieve the encryption keys
via the blockchain. Technically this is the trickiest part where we use several interesting techniques to avoid frauds
such as blockchain-based smart contracts with escrow and ZKP.

Last but not least, consumers can provide feedback to the author in the form of rating. This is also a blockchain-based transaction.


DECENT CORE TEAM


DECENT core team is currently based mainly in Slovakia and China while our advisors and brand ambassadors
are spreading the world all around the globe. More information can be found on DECENT website.

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. That post was looking very suspicious and the BTC addresses where people were asked to send fund were immediately censored to prevent any abuse. Now it has been removed from the board and the user who posted it permanently banned.

    Software Sale


    DECENT has come a long way so far and we would like to thank you all for many advices and remarks. To bring the ideas of digital revolution into the reality, DECENT Software Sale begins soon. Don’t miss this unique chance and become part of decentralized future!

    DCT is not just a cryptocurrency. Representing a fuel to the network it is a software tool which makes DECENT work.

    The proceeds from the sale will be allocated and used in the following categories: Development and Operations, Legal Contingency, Marketing and Community outreach and Blockchain development to ensure worldwide adoption of decentralized approach to Digital Content Distribution.

    DCT Issuance

    After the launch of the final release of DECENT Network, tokens will be issued according to the Software Sale results. Certain amount of the tokens will be allocated as follows:

    1,000,000 DCT  - Promotion Bounties

    Like your concept and after reading the whitepaper, I am wondering about your ICO pricing:

    Allocating 35M+ DCT to the foundation is nice until you look at the pricing of 5000DCT per BTC, which makes the allocation 7000BTC's worth or a little less then $5M.

    How many DCTs will come to be? What percentage is the allocation (the $5M) from the total number of DCTs? what initial valuation does it give to the entire project?

    will there be inflation or is this a set amount?

    Also, it seems like you have had several delays in starting the ICO. The white paper said Q1, then the web site announce June. what were the reasons for the delay and what is the roadmap?

    Thanks

    Hey there, thank you for your remark!

    The token amount of DECENT Software Sale is not limited.
    There will be an inflation. The publishing and buying process includes a small publishing fee - these tokens are burnt afterwards. Miners (publishers) verify the transactions and earn a reward for doing so - these are a newly generated tokens.

    DECENT is a non-profit project supported by DECENT Foundation, which will never have financial benefits from DECENT Network. Funds allocated to the foundation will cover further development of the network, keeping protocol up to date, implementation of voting system and so on. The future plan for DECENT is to create an app-market place where people can easily download applications built on top of the protocol to their Android or iOS devices. Next week we will publish the roadmap and development plan in which we will specify the future steps and  explain why the amount of 35,000,000 tokens is inevitable to ensure the best possible performance of DECENT Network and stability of DECENT Foundation. DECENT’s aim is to completely recreate the digital content distribution process.

    The delay of the Software Sale was caused by some organizational issues. Right now we are finalizing all the preparations. Once, it is all done we will publicly announce the start date of DECENT ICO. However, the estimated time of it’s beginning is August/September 2016.
