OKP4 is an ever-expanding universe of applications powered by shared digital resources.
NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EVERY DIGITAL RESSOURCE
OKP4 is the only public layer-1 blockchain designed for coordination of digital assets such as datasets, algorithms, software, storage or computation. Anyone can build and join customZoneswhere rules are shared and value flows between participants.
Let’s build amazing things together!
Easy to build
Zones and Applications
Built in Trust
and custom governance
Powered by the $KNOW token
Incentives & value flows for the many use cases are enabled by the $KNOW. Many B2B use cases are ready to be launched, more community use cases will be built when the Testnet launches.
Built on the Cosmos SDK
A smart contract hub specifically designed for Zones.
Simplicity and transparency
Decentralization guarantees sovereignity of shared data and services, trustlessness, transparency, easy managment and customization of governance rules.
ENTER IN THE OKP4 UNIVERSE
The ever-extanding universe comprised of all the Datasets, Algorithms, Softwares, Infrastructures and other resources referenced in the Blockchain and shared within multiple Zones.
Tools and services dedicated to developers to create their own apps using the OKP4 protocol.
The next era for the knowledge economy
OKP4 is a blockchain built for the coordination of digital resources.
This is is the only blockchain where developers can find the perfect environment to build a new generation of applications based on digital resources (datasets, algorithms, storage, computation…) shared by participants (communities and businesses).
The story began in 2018 with a vision of addressing the two main issues relating to data sharing: lack of trust and lack of interest alignment between participants.
It led to the first B2B use cases with OKP4 Company as a centralized coordinator to experiment with the many governance rules and refine our value proposition. After two years of experimentation, we were ready to work on decentralization. Realizing there was no decentralized network specifically designed for such use cases, we quickly concluded that we needed to create our own specific and sovereign blockchain. We then chose the Cosmos SDK to build it.
After two more years of research and development using the Cosmos SDK as a starting point, OKP4 was ready for the Nemeton era.Read moreRead less
OKP4 launched its Nemeton Public Testnet on the 17th of October, 2022.
The Nemeton era is the bootstrapping era. This is when the ideas & concepts are expressed to the public.This is when the first validators join together to power the network, test its limits and contribute to its developments.
This is when the first builders come to explore Zone possibilities and opportunities for them and their communities, resulting in the first OKP4-powered decentralized use cases operated by communities of pioneers. This is where the community unites around the vision of a new generation of applications enabled by trust-minimized sharing of digital resources. Nemeton becomes the host for existing use cases.
The Nemeton era results in a stable, battle-tested environment and gives birth to the OKP4 mainnet.Read moreRead less
Get ready for the Myrddin era, where OKP4 mainnet is unleashed and the decentralized network come to life.
The main focus is making OKP4 easy to use and highly customizable, hosted on a community-operated network secured by the scarce, publicly traded $KNOW token. Watch as the community of builders deploys new governance rules for Zones and participants find new designs to coordinate themselves and build epic innovative applications. Token holders and validators take control through governance proposals and votes, creating an involved and diverse community.
IBC channels enable token flow between chains and pave the way for the first proto-interchain apps. By the end of the Myrddin era, we'll see impactful businesses and community-powered applications enabled by OKP4. The powerful OKP4 SDK and Dataverse Gateways releases take us into the Duir era...Read moreRead less
Unlike the Myrddin era, which starts at a single point in time when the mainnet launched, the transition to Duir happen gradually.
While Myrddin is focused on building the infrastructure, the Duir era is focused on adoption. With each release relating to the SDK, the Dataverse Gateways or the governance templates, new opportunities emerge for builders, data & service providers and users. The Duir era is the climax of adoption due to the easiness and straightforwardness of building and onboarding communities.
The Dataverse reaches a critical network effect: the many datasets and services available provide unprecedented opportunities for builders and becomes a significant go-to-market fo data & services providers. An ecosystem of Zone governance tokens emerges, providing healthy competition between them and steering open innovation to the next level. Real-life use cases and value flows into the network and the OKP4 public good continues to grow.Read moreRead less
The Lugh era is the expression of the unstoppable nature of OKP4s design.
Inter-blockchain communication is now the norm and OKP4 is interoperable with every meaningful network to access any kind of datasets and services (decentralized storage, decentralized computation...), onboard communities from other chains easily, and seamless interchain applications.
Due to OKP4 first-mover advantage and significant network effect reached, OKP4 becomes the default coordination layer for most applications based on distributed resources.
Thousands of projects and teams across the web2 and web3 worlds are building on OKP4: it has reached mass adoption.Read moreRead less
