Pocket Network News - SEP 2020

6,538,726 relays in the first week of September, 170+ nodes running on mainnet, subsidizing relays for MetaMask and MyCrypto, as well as, Saturn Network DEX integrates Pocket Network, and much more!

Launch Updates:

It’s been a little over one month since the Pocket Network has launched its mainnet protocol!

For the month of August, Ethereum applications, using the Pocket Gateway, have driven a total of 2,779,336 relays. That means nodes have minted (at 0.01 POKT per relay served and validated) 27,793.36 $POKT, with 10% (2,779.336) going to the Pocket DAO, provides perpetual funding for the protocol to sustain itself and continue to evolve! 

Here are some more metrics:

AVG Relays per Week (in AUG):

926,445

AVG Relays per Day (in AUG):

132,349 

Most Relays in AUG:

675,991 (AUG 27th)

Most Relays in SEP:

1,315,136 (SEP 3rd)

Past 7 day rolling:

6,538,726 (SEP 1st - 7th)

And yes, you are looking at that correctly! We’ve had more than double (almost triple) the number of relays within the first week of September compared to the entire month of August 🤯

It’s important to note that these relays are what’s being driven through the Pocket Gateway, traffic started on August 11th, and it doesn’t include the relays coming from the Pocket Wallet and Pocket Block Explorer, which are directly connected to the protocol via the Dispatch Mechanism (Pocket JS SDK). 

One of the applications driving relays through the Pocket Gateway to the Pocket Network protocol is Saturn Network, an uncensorable decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol. It’s now truly unstoppable!

Pocket Network Inc. (PNI) has also been identifying applications that enable their users to add a custom RPC endpoint, in this case, Pocket Network! So far, we’ve run two guerilla marketing campaigns for both MetaMask and MyCrypto. If you use either one of these Ethereum interfaces, check out these two hyperlinked-tweets or watch these videos to follow learn how to easily make the switch to Pocket as your default decentralized Ethereum network provider:

10,000,000 requests per day for MetaMask users

1,000,000 requests per day for MyCrypto users

These guys get it! 

If you are a user of an application that wants a more reliable and redundant service, share this newsletter with them! Or if you are an application developer interested in claiming the offer of 1M relays per day, apply below and we’ll get back to you ASAP to provide you early access to the Pocket Gateway.

1M Relay Offer

At the launch of Pocket Network mainnet, the protocol had about ~70 instances (nodes) of Pocket Core running and generating $POKT for the underlying layer of Ethereum full nodes. Now, there’s a total of 173 staked nodes run by the collective network of node runners and infrastructure providers! 

In order to ensure the quality of service and encourage early participation in the Pocket Network protocol, PNI has been seeking and identifying top-tier infrastructure providers to join the second round of the Pocket Infrastructure Bootstrap Program (PIBP). PIBP is an interest-free 18-month loan for infra providers to spin up to 10 nodes. If you’re a professional node operator interested in learning more or signing up, please apply here:

Pocket Infra Bootstrap Program

Luis shares his thoughts on the problem Pocket solves with this Twitter thread: 

Developer Updates:

The Pocket Core RC-0.5.1 release candidate has made even more significant improvements and QOL enhancements to the existing protocol. However, it’s not officially released for mainnet yet and will be rolled into the larger Pocket Core RC-0.6.0 protocol update. More details on that coming soon!  

Those features include but are not limited to:

  • Add terminal completions

  • Ensure pocket-evidence is deleted in all lifecycles

  • Roll back blocks / override app hash

  • Merged POSmint into core

By adding terminal completions, those using the CLI will be able to see a command ahead of time before typing it completely. Through ensuring that pocket-evidence is deleted in all life cycles, it should reduce the bloat on the state of the blockchain and keep it relatively lean. Instead of clearing the entire database, an ability to roll back a few blocks has been added just in case of a non-deterministic state. An in-house, modified, pure Proof of Stake fork of tendermint POSmint has been merged into the core repo. Anyone is free to use this pure PoS consensus model!

For a full list, you can view the changelog in our GitHub repo

Also, the Pocket Developer Portal has been updated to version 3.2. A major overhaul of the dev portal is underway with the upcoming release of v4.0., which will heavily draw from community feedback.

Speaking about the community, Jeremy took the initiative to include a community contributions page within the developer portal to highlight solutions and tools from members of the Pocket Network community. For example, Simply VC (one of our bootstrap node partners) created a tutorial to help node operators monitor their Pocket Infrastructure using PANIC:

Behind the Scenes:

Application and node outreach continues, with efforts starting to compound and interest bubbling. We’ve noticed a need for Archival Node support when talking to application prospects, so we’ll be prioritizing that and coordinating with our bootstrap node partners. 

In the background, we are building an embedded game within our Discord server to foster engagement between community members and the protocol itself. If you are interested in testing it out and providing feedback, tag someone with the @🧙Admin 🧙‍♀️ role in our Discord server for an invite. 

The Pocket community has asked for node tutorial videos, so we are going to deliver on that promise. We’ve roped in a previous collaborator Dabble Labs to work in unison with Jeremy on putting together a series of videos called “Zero to Node” around the topic of running nodes. This will help anyone get up to speed for spinning up and running a production-level node operation. 

What if users of an application could crowdsource and subsidize relays for their favorite application(s), while earning a yield? 

A small, but dedicated team is currently ideating on and building out a design that would enable a user base to stake POKT on behalf of an application natively within the Ethereum ecosystem in the form of wPOKT. More details coming later, but Regen Farmers will be welcomed to harvest! 

Fun note:

Gabriel Shapiro actually got kind of close to what we are imagining 👇

Pocket Network News - AUG 2020

Pocket Network launched its mainnet protocol, onboarded world-class blockchain infrastructure providers, seeded the Pocket DAO, $POKT available to sell directly to apps and nodes, plus more!

Launch Updates:

Pocket Network launched its mainnet protocol on July 28th, 2020! 

The mainnet protocol was bootstrapped by world-class blockchain infrastructure providers and staking service providers:

  • Rivet 

  • Figment Networks

  • ChainFlow

  • Tuku Dev

  • Skillz

  • Simply VC

  • Everstake

  • Stakin

  • Pocket Network, Inc

These providers are running Ethereum full nodes in conjunction with instances of Pocket Core, which are currently serving our two native Pocket Network applications ( Pocket Wallet and the Pocket Block Explorer). By doing so, they are earning revenue (in $POKT) for running full nodes and servicing relays from applications. 

You can browse through the random nodes around the world serving data for the block explorer through Pocket Network by following the directions in this tweet below:

go here https://t.co/EncwHMBj78 Control+Shift+J (Windows) or Command+Option+J (Mac) click on the network tab refresh the page browse through random nodes around the world serving you data through pocket network

We expect to onboard Ethereum applications very soon, starting with Saturn Network, a cross-chain DEX 🪐

In the spirit of progressive, sustainable decentralization we are continuing to roll out the mainnet launch. Earlier this week, we recently distributed POKT to the early genesis and incentivized testnet participants to unjail their nodes. At this point, any node operator can stake on behalf of their node(s) and start running nodes in Pocket Network mainnet. 

While we are working on the development of Pocket Dashboard and Pocket Gateway, we are excited to begin onboarding Ethereum applications. We will soon be offering a guaranteed throughput of 1,000,000 relays per day to 100 apps for free during the duration of the campaign (minimum of one year, then we will revisit its effectiveness).

Join the waitlist 👇

1M Relays

For hardcore decentralists who do not wish to use the Gateway to deploy your application on Pocket Network, you have the freedom to connect directly to Ethereum via the Pocket Network protocol by using the other tools available such as the Web3 Provider and JS SDK.

Prior to the mainnet launch, we ran a best node competition after running a successful incentivized testnet program. We did this to ensure incentivized testnet participants would have the most hardened setups possible in preparation for mainnet while also still giving the opportunity for new entrants to run Pocket nodes. Between our load tests and the applications running on testnet, a total of 8,816,829 relays were served and a total of 26 independent nodes participated. Here’s a complete breakdown of the results 📊 

Developer Updates:

The Pocket Core 0.5.0 release candidate made significant improvements and enhancements to the existing protocol. Pocket Core 0.5.0 is the version that mainnet runs!

These are some of those new features:

  • AAT now printing as JSON string and not bytes

  • Enhanced proof entropy and flush to disk

  • Removed all receipts to alleviate large state size

The full changelog can be found here

Details on the next protocol candidate release Pocket Core 0.5.1 coming soon. 

The developer portal has also received a massive facelift, as well as, has been restructured to reflect mainnet. 

Economic and Governance Updates:

We’re excited to announce that we are able to sell POKT directly to application developers and node operators. At launch, the price of each POKT is $0.08 USD. 

If you are either an application interested in paying for infrastructure access and saving on developer costs or a node operator interested in providing infrastructure access and generating additional revenue, email us at sales@pokt.network to design a plan that works for you and purchase the amount of POKT required to get the ball rolling.

The Pocket Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) launch roadmap has also made significant strides towards progressive decentralization! 

So far, the Pocket DAO has been seeded with its first initial voter set consisting of: 

  • Skillz

  • MetaCartel Ventures

  • Blockwall

  • Saturn Network

  • Pocket Network, Inc (PNI) 

The constitution was approved by the 5 members of the Pocket DAO. You can actually see that moment in our online Discord community! 

After the constitution was approved, the Pocket DAO voted on the first Parameter Update Proposal (PUP).  

The Pocket DAO is now in the “Growing the Seed” phase of the launch roadmap. From here, the initial members of the DAO can champion others and onboard them to the Pocket DAO. In this phase, there is a cap of up to 50 voters. If you want to join the Pocket DAO and be one of the first protocol politicians, find a champion who will vouch for you! 

Jack Laing, Governance Lead of PNI, recently published the Lean Governance Thesis.

In the Lean Governance Thesis, Jack explains how we use the modular Lean Trias Politica to future-proof Pocket Network’s governance by balancing flexibility (optionality of future governance designs) with legitimacy (conformity of new governance designs to the established accepted ruleset). To understand the strategic philosophy driving the design of our DAO, our Constitution, and the Pocket Network Foundation (PNF), check it out here

Pocket Network News - JULY 2020

Mainnet launches in 18 days on July 28th, Best Node Service Competition kicks off on Monday July 13th, AMA with Staking Hub scheduled on July 15th, and much more!

Launch Updates:

Pocket Mainnet launches on July 28th 🚀

The Genesis File has been finalized. Incentivized testnet participants that have locked in their accounts will receive their earned POKT tokens on the launch date. 

We had roughly 150 individuals running over 500 nodes, making incentivized testnet a smashing success. Some of these nodes were run by high-profile staking firms and infrastructure providers, such as but not limited to Rivet, Simply VC, ChainFlow, Skillz, Stakin, and Figment Networks. 

We are also excited to kick off a one week Best Node Service Competition

This will ensure every incentivized testnet participant has the most hardened setups possible in preparation for mainnet while giving an opportunity for new entrants to run Pocket nodes and compete in earning POKT. It’s scheduled from 8 AM EST Monday, July 13th to 8 AM EST Monday, July 20th.

POKT will be awarded to those who prove they serve the most successful relays in that week. The rewards will be broken down into this:

🥇 150,000 POKT -  to the single node who proves the most successful relays that week. 

🥈 100,000 POKT -  to the single node who proves the second most successful relays that week. 

🥉 50,000 POKT - to the single node who proves the third most successful relays that week. 

15,000 POKT will also be awarded to each node who achieves at least a 95% success rate on Pocket relays from our load tests (minimum 1 million relays served). 

For more details, read this announcement and look for the #🥇🥈best-nodes-competition🥉🏅 channel on our Discord

Developer Updates:

On June 30th, we released the latest protocol update Pocket Core RC-0.4.1.

It came with a ton of Quality of Life (QOL) improvements for node operators, such as increasing the number of consecutive blocks a node is allowed to miss to two before it’s jailed, as well as, fixing the Account-txs and Block-txs CLI commands that weren’t working. This protocol release also rolled out updates to the PocketRpcProvider and JS/TS libraries (Pocket-JS & Web3-Provider) like:

  • Securely porting over your private keys 

  • Fixed the issue where the Session would sometimes come up as “not found”

  • Fixed the issue where sendRelay call would not send proper proofs. 

Visit the changelog to check out all the improvements rolled out in this release. 

Economic and Governance Updates:

We’ve prepared and published two economic articles focused on both sides of the two-sided marketplace. One dives into the developer side of the economic model with Pocket Economics for Apps, while the other side attends to the node operators through Pocket Economics for Nodes.

On the Pocket Network economics page, you’ll find a newly updated staking calculator. After reading Pocket Economics for Apps or Pocket Economics for Nodes, play with it to so you can see how much you can save as an app or how much you can earn as a node. 

The first draft of the Pocket Network Constitution is complete and going through external review. Once this feedback is processed and integrated, we’ll be publishing the Constitution and starting the community ratification process. 

In the meantime, we’re testing out processes and configuring tooling for the Pocket DAO’s launch. 

News:

Decrypt published an insightful article titled “Pocket Network is Web3’s Answer to Amazon Web Services”. We highly recommend reading it to understand the pain points Pocket is solving for developers and node operators.

Algorand shared a press release highlighting the development of a Pocket integration into their AlgoSDK. This will let developers natively point to Pocket’s decentralized API through the Algorand SDK, providing access to a network of Algorand node runners in a censorship-resistant manner. It also highlighted the construction of an Algorand <> Pocket Token Bridge after the first integration is completed. From there, we will be able to issue an Algorand Standard Asset (ASA) version of POKT, Pocket’s native cryptocurrency, as a POKT-ASA, which will provide added utility for our community of developers and node operators. 

Solana announced that Pocket is working on integrating Solana into our SDK. Pocket’s novel economic model and node incentivization scheme provides a perfect complement to Solana’s existing architecture. For example, currently, Solana Archivers are incentivized to store massive amounts of data (~4 petabytes per year) within the Solana blockchain, but there is no incentive for serving this data in a censorship-resistant manner. Pocket enables further incentivization on the reads for this data!

Arcadia Group wrote a Medium post “How Pocket can change the way Exchanges interact with overarching networks” exploring the use case of exchanges powered by Pocket. You’ll find out that by leveraging Pocket’s architecture and economics it makes for a more robust and secure exchange, whether it’s a CEX or DEX. 

In June, we hosted an Infrastructure Call with leading staking services and node providers in order to go over how to run Pocket in production. It’s recommended that node runners watch this to get their operations up to speed: 

A must watch, especially with the Best Node Service Competition coming up!

Behind the Scenes:

First and foremost, we are partnering up with Staking Hub to do a community AMA on July 15th at 18:00 UTC. Michael O’Rourke, Luis C. de Leon, and Alberto Jaureguire will be answering all your Pocket Network related questions. If there is something you’ve been wanting to ask us, the AMA is the perfect time. You can add your question(s) to this Questions Document, then set a reminder with this Google Calendar invite. The AMA will be hosted in the Staking Hub Telegram, which you join by clicking the hyperlink. 

Pocket Wallet and Block Explorer are code-complete. Click the hyperlinks to check them out.  

Development for Dashboard and Gateway continues. They’ll be ready for mainnet! 

If you are active within our online community on Discord, you may have noticed a new layout to the server. It’s been prepped for when we add a gamification and reputation layer. We recently registered pocketnetwork.eth for 10 years, yes 10 years, so expect to see some fun experimentations with ENS domains.

In order to stave off potential spammers and bots, we added a welcome bot and introduction flow to verify your humanity. 

We started to come up with memes, here are a few examples. Let us know your favorite and if you have an idea for a Pocket meme, share it with us! 

We thought it would be interesting to highlight a few tweets from our community members, so here you go:

Pocket Network News - JUNE 2020

With mainnet on the horizon, this is a juicy edition of our monthly newsletter!

Developer Updates:

Earlier this week, the Pocket Core protocol was upgraded to RC-0.4.0. It’s the most stable and reliable release as of yet. This release delivers major improvements to the existing protocol and rolls out an update to the Javascript / Typescript libraries for Pocket-JS and Web3-provider. A full changelog can be found here

Pocket Core RC-0.4.0 contains all the major features that’ll be live for mainnet. It sets a new standard for blockchain node infrastructure!

On June 15th, we will be launching a lineup of Pocket native applications to make the user journey for mainnet easier to navigate. These products include:

  • Pocket Wallet

  • Pocket Block Explorer

  • Pocket Dashboard 

  • Pocket Gateway

See screenshots of the products available below in the behind the scenes section. 

Pocket integrations for Matic and Portis are in QA. 

Economic and Governance Updates:

For people in a hurry, we’ve put together a short summary of the economic model and monetary policy behind Pocket Network. Read the Economics Brief.  

At the same time, we pushed an update to the Pocket Economics page of our website. There you’ll find a portal to explore our economic model, a new staking calculator for both apps and nodes, as well as, a revamp of the content. 

A discussion in our Discord server led to Michael O’Rourke spinning up a Twitter thread on how Pocket Network leverages useful proofs of work to create new $POKT! 

Here’s a peek into how governance for the Pocket DAO will work with Aragon Courts:

News:

In May, the Pocket team ran its first community call. If you missed it, you can watch a recording here:

We partnered with DAppNode to do a DAppNode Advanced Giveaway celebrating the launch of our Pocket DNP. Two winners were chosen: Kevin Gaspar and Shawn Gaspar. Congratulations to the Gaspar brothers! 

Behind the Scenes:

Over the next few weeks, we will be monitoring and load testing the updated protocol to make sure everything is working properly ahead of the mainnet launch. 

Here are screenshots and descriptions of the Pocket products:

Pocket Wallet

This is a simple GUI wallet that will provide the means for anyone to transfer POKT between accounts without having to use the CLI. We made a strategic decision to build our own wallet for mainnet in order to reduce barriers to entry and provide ease of use for our users. 

Pocket Block Explorer

This will be the first completely decentralized “serverless” block explorer of its kind. It’s a native block explorer for Pocket, running on Pocket and IPFS via our friends at Fleek. The modularity and composability of these infrastructure legos mean that any new blockchain will be able to take this framework and launch their own block explorer easily and quickly through Pocket. With Pocket, a base blockchain would get the additional resiliency and robustness of querying data from a dynamic set of multiple nodes instead of just one.  

Pocket Dashboard

Another key piece of our launch strategy, the Pocket Dashboard will give application developers and node operators the ability to view and manage their infrastructure. It will also operate as our sales funnel where users will be able to make direct purchases of POKT. 

Pocket Gateway

Alongside our dashboard, we will be launching a Gateway that provides a seamless integration for applications built with centralized infrastructure provisioning in mind. The gateway is an interface and abstraction layer sitting on top of the Pocket Network as a platform. This allows any existing app connected to a legacy API endpoint to easily switch over to Pocket by changing the URL from their centralized provider to point to the Pocket Gateway. After doing so, the application would be automatically connected to an underlying decentralized network of infrastructure providers and node operators running all sorts of blockchain nodes. Thereby, further driving the economics and network effects for the node side of the marketplace. 

Inspired by the MetaGame, we are continuing to work on adding a gamification and reputation layer to our community channels. By participating in Pocket through running nodes, building applications, or participating in governance everyone has the opportunity to unlock roles as they complete quests and progress through individual paths. These include fun and evolving roles such as but not limited to the Rampart, Vanguard, Wayfinder, and DAOsensei. We are expecting to have this rolled out by the end of June!

In addition, we are also working on creating a governance section within our developer portal(v2.5) to help potential members of the Pocket DAO find the information they need.  

Last, we have heard your requests and we are pleased to announce that the node walkthrough videos are underway to help our node operators setup creating a Pocket Node and a Pocket Validator node using all of our deployment artifacts:

  • Docker

  • Homebrew

  • Binary

Pocket Network News - MAY 2020

Updates, News, and Behind the Scenes

Developer Updates:

Tomorrow, the Pocket Core protocol will be upgraded to the newest version RC-0.3.0. It’s the most stable and reliable release as of yet. Pocket Core RC-0.4.0 will be delivered in early June, our last major protocol update before mainnet launches at the end of Q2 / beginning of Q3.

The protocol update delivers improvements to our Pocket-JS library, Web3 Provider, and Node Deployment artifacts (Docker and Homebrew). It also hard codes support at the protocol layer for most of the existing blockchain networks. As long as someone runs a node for one of them, like Bitcoin, it can begin servicing relays from DApps of that specific blockchain and start earning POKT come mainnet launch.  

Our Infra Engineering team has built and deployed the Pocket DappNode Package (DNP), which makes it super simple for anyone with a DAppNode to simultaneously run an Ethereum node and become a validator in the Pocket Network. This means Nodlers can easily participate in our incentivized testnet by installing the Pocket DNP!

As part of the Pocket Incentivized Testnet, we announced our first bug bounty program. This gives developers the opportunity to earn more POKT for identifying bugs in the network to help ensure the security of the test network. 

Our App Solutions team developed the ICON Pocket Provider, which is similar to our Web3 Provider, as an independent package that developers can use inside their existing ICON applications to access reliable, decentralized node infrastructure. The ICON Pocket Provider abstracts away PocketJS for ICON. 

Economics and Governance Updates:

The Pocket DAO constitution is ~99% complete. It’s going through an internal review, then will be shared with key leaders in the governance space for an external review. 

News:

Alongside the release of the Pocket DNP, DAppNode and Pocket have joined forces to run a DAppNode Advanced Model giveaway. You and either one of your friends, colleagues, or favorite Web3 project could win a DAppNode Advanced. For details on how to participate, follow the directions in this Twitter thread

Incentivized testnet has been progressing well. So far, the Pocket Network has over 50 nodes running Pocket Core and an assortment base blockchain nodes, like Ethereum. This includes pioneers such as Figment Networks, Everstake, and Simply VC to name a few.    

Pabel Nunez Landestoy, Pocket App Solutions Engineer, shared what a DApp is and how they are structured, as well as, an example of a DApp using Pocket and Ethereum in the Decentralize Santo Domingo event “¿Que Es Una DApp? y ¿Como Crear Una?”. 

Our CTO Luis C. de Leon was featured in the Powered by Aragon video!

Behind the Scenes:

Pocket’s App Solution team is building integrations with Algorand, Solana, Matic, and Portis.

Once those integrations are done, the AS team will be focused on developing a new product codenamed Pocket Gateway. It will have the convenience of centralized NaaS providers, but under the hood, Pocket’s redundant-by-design and decentralized architecture. 

We are also working on other applications integral to our mainnet launch. This includes the Pocket Dashboard, as well as, both a native block explorer and wallet.

Here is a sneak peak of the Block Explorer:
