The pNetwork Community Association is proud to share its proposed pNetwork Roadmap!
The pNetwork Community Association aims to contribute to the development and growth of pNetwork and is vocal of pNetwork’s and PNT's long-term supporters.
The vision of the Association is to make pNetwork more decentralized, with a more inclusive and transparent approach. The roadmap is aligned with this vision and it is based on three main pillars:
- Decentralization - via pNetwork v3
- Community-driven approach - via the new pNetwork DAO
- Further interoperability - via new cross-chain features and new integrations
Anyone can join the association, you can apply here.
pNetwork v3 is a new proposed architecture for pNetwork, which will make the protocol truly decentralized and more secure overall - the system is safe as long as there is at least 1 honest participant.
In 2022 pNetwork v2 focused on scalability, from 2023 pNetwork v3 will focus on decentralization.
The pNetwork DAO is of vital importance for the decentralization of the protocol.
The new DAO has unleash new features, an enhanced $PNT tokenomics, better accessibility for nodes and much more, with the intent to make pNetwork truly community-driven.
The detailed activities and milestones we intend to achieve are listed below by quarters.
Depending on the progress of work, and when more knowledge becomes available, more details will be added to the Roadmap.
