Building on PKT

The PKT roadmap is composed of 4 Phases, based on having the fewest dependencies first. Collectively the 3 Phase will bring the PKT Network to scale.

Phase 1: Launch

Bandwidth Mining PacketCrypt was created and the mainnet PKT blockchain was launched in August 2019. Phase 1 focused on community growth, building out network infrastructure and unifying around PacketCrypt and bandwidth-hard mining. Major developments include multiple PKT wallets, community engagement via PKT Chat, the project task tracker, Network Steward and informational websites.

Phase 2: Utilize

Tokenized Bandwidth Leases Anyone who wants to use a VPN, create their own, or mine PKT will easily be able to do so via Anodium VPN. Technology development includes Token Strike, to issue tokens in the PKT ecosystem for near zero cost and without gas fees, a DeFi bridge between PKT, Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain, bandwidth lease function and infrastructure via cjdns, and an Edge Point Device to easily mine PacketCrypt and get on the internet via your neighbor.

Phase 3: Scale

Support Internet Sharing The alpha implementation of the virtual Cloud ISP provides the ability to trade, aggregate, and access tokenized bandwidth leases via cjdns. People can get on the internet via their neighbor with no privacy risk because all data is sent to a VPN. The Atomic Swap Market can transact in and out of PKT with high speed, low cost transactions between Lightning Network enabled coins such as PKT, Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum. Desktop and mobile apps provide easy functionality across devices worldwide.

Phase 4: Innovate

Virtual ISPs The commercial expansion of Cloud ISPs signifies a healthy and active bandwidth market. People can lease bandwidth allotment guarantees and access the internet without using a traditional ISP. PKT Priority provides internet access with a minimum price free if there is available bandwidth. This will simplify local mesh networking by moving the network engineering component to the Cloud ISP. The stateless switch design central in the cjdns protocol will not only set new records for router performance/cost ratio, but will also allow for hundreds or even thousands of Cloud ISPs to send data through a single device, each according to their own routing policy.
