The first version of a Holographic Consensus (HC) protocol — the Genesis Protocol V0.1— has been specified and implemented (in Alchemy: http://alchemy.daostack.io) some months ago. We’re now ready to move to Genesis Protocol V0.2, and it’s going to be a community project
For introductory materials about HC please check out these three articles:
For current work status please see this working draft (in progress):
and the early spec of the Genesis protocol implemented in Alchemy:
(for the less-accurate version but which is written in ordinary language)
(for the precise version implemented right now in code; for wherever there’s mismatch with the one above, this is the one that’s in code right now)
Finally, this is a working document for the upcoming Genesis V0.2 upgrade:
Anyone is warmly invited to take part in this community research program, this week (Tuesday 13 Nov - Sunday 18 Nov) will be an intensive research week at the end of which we’d like to close the specification for the first Genesis upgrade (V0.2). Further (and broader) research will continue afterwards.
Generous bounties will be offered for any real contribution to this program (such as ideas we haven’t thought about, identification of issues not identified, solutions to existing issues not suggested already - even partial ones, working out full solutions from initial ideas, etc). Exact bounties are still to be defined, hopefully in the coming days. Over time (possibly soon, depending on level of engagement), this program itself will turn into a Research DAO on otop of Alchemy. More on this in another thread (or on this one) later.
Please write on this thread any questions about this process. We’ll create a new thread for each identified issue (in the above G-doc link) for further questions, comments and suggestions on that issue. New identified issues, or new ideas, should have their own new threads. If you’re not sure if your idea is worth of a new thread please ask on this main one.
Also general questions on HC or the Genesis protocol are welcome over here.
Please come with any suggestion for the improvement of the process of this work group, we’ll evolve it over time. The current format includes:
Telegram supergroup for real-time operational questions: https://t.me/joinchat/AUo-qA7EQURSFhru0WqvVg . Possibly migrating to Discord at some point.
This forum for all scientific discussions. (We’ll see over time if we also need a real-time scientific channel; could possibly use the Telegram or Discord for that.)
Google doc (link above) and linked issues therein for continuous work status. Please DM (here or on Telegram: @MatanField) for editing permissions.
Any other ideas? Github repo+issues?
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
Looking forward to collaborate on this this!
