Computecoin Network (CCN), a self-evolving computer with $2 million in funding and created to serve the metaverse, launched its testnet on September 27th. CCN primarily focuses on enabling metaverse applications by integrating and configuring decentralized clouds such as Filecoin, DFINITY, and data centers. Interested miners can apply to be a part of the testnet’s first phase. According to the team at CCN – ETH, BZZ, and FIL miners are already involved.
The Major goals of this launch are to:
- Verifying the consensus algorithm for blockchain production
- Computational demands that outperform the largest blockchains
- Integrating and dynamically modifying decentralized clouds to offload computation to proximity networks, providing developers and consumers great, fast, economical, and reliable meta power.
According to the announcement:
“Computecoin is the first project to specifically take on the computational challenges facing metaverse applications. We envision a platform that can provide rich, low-cost, instantaneous, and trustable computing power to metaverse developers and users. For the past two years, we have been working hard to lay the groundwork for Computecoin. We are thrilled to finally invite miners to join our testnet when it launches.”
Proof of Honesty (PoH)
Computecoin’s unique consensus mechanism enables its self-governing ecosystem by allowing users to verify the results of outsourced computing jobs. This patent is called “Proof of Honesty” (PoH). According to the press release, Computecoin currently oversees a “couple” patents in the US. “Distributed Computing Using Blockchain Technologies” is another patent that provides a fundamental architecture for decentralized clouds, allowing for a more decentralized ecosystem.
Mourad Mazouni, CEO of Computecoin, Added:
“Our patented PoH consensus algorithm ensures that every virtual machine on our network executes tasks faithfully and completely to provide the processing capacity that metaverse applications require.”
Join The Testnet As A Miner
On September 27th, 2021, at 10 p.m. ET, CCN will begin accepting mining applications on its official website. More information on how to join testnet may be found here.
The chosen applicants will act as CCN founding miners, assisting in the network’s governance and block generation. Miners will be selected at random to manage the network in each epoch in the future, with CCN tokens as a reward. The probability of being chosen is quite proportional to the amount of meta power miners contribute to the network.
Dome-A 1.0 is now LIVE.
