Intention of the project is to revolutionize Data Distribution on the Internet.

DECENT Development plan and Roadmap

Our vision is to create a fully integrated & trustworthy worldwide system of digital content distribution

in which the communication flow is secured and timestamped by the blockchain mechanism.

MISSION

DECENT’s mission is to become a liaison between various industries by bridging the gap between the emerging blockchain ecosystem. Through secure and trustworthy digital content sharing platform we provide a vertically integrated system for industries, organizations or businesses while we focus on flexibility & sustainable development. Infrastructure of linked systems enables to set more intelligent international standards of efficient, cost-effective & secure content distribution. The principles of DECENT, based on distributed trust machine – the blockchain, bring reliability to wide range of sectors & services in which privacy and security play the crucial role.

SOFTWARE SALE

Start day:   10th of September 2016!

DECENT Software Sale is a one-time opportunity to become a basic element of Blockchain driven decentralized future of media.

After creation of the basis of the Network and establishing its security features we need your help.

In order to give all the people around the globe a possibility to enjoy independent and borderless Content Distribution Network, we need to bring DECENT to life.

Don’t miss your chance and JOIN the future!

Participants of the Software Sale will be able to purchase DCTs using Bitcoin.

Any further sale related information will be published on the official website of DECENT Software Sale.

The proceeds from the sale will be allocated and used in the following categories:

Development and Operations, Legal Contingency, Marketing and Community outreach and Blockchain development.

DCT ISSUANCE

DCT is not just a cryptocurrency. Representing a fuel to the network it is a software tool which makes DECENT work. DCT holders will be able to trade the currency for other assets as other cryptocurrencies or digital content. Once the DECENT Platform is launched DCT will be available for trading or usage across the publishing and buying process on the Platform. DCT also serves as an anti-spam protection and reward for seeders/miners (or publishers in DECENT terminology).

After the launch of the final release of DECENT Network, DCT will be issued according to the Software Sale results.

DCT sold in the September Software sale will be 70% of the total DCT distributed. Part of this will be also pre-mine funds that will be distributed in following way:

10% for the DECENT Foundation

2% for the Investment Fund

1,000,000 DCT for DECENT Bounty program

3,000,000 DCT for Pre-software marketing.

The initial value of DCT will increase simultaneously with the Software Sale progress.

Which means the early participants get more for smaller value and apply for higher bonuses.

ETH value is set according to the current BTC/ETH exchange rate. Only BTC value is determinant. More information will follow soon.

DECENT PARTNERS

Cryptorials

“Its about time that the world had a decent media platform,

which treats its users and their personal information with respect.”

Forklog:

“The DECENT Software Sale is aimed at creating a secure and independent publishing network

powered by the blockchain technology.”

NewsBTC:

“Those taking part in the DECENT software sale can buy DCT cryptotokens (software tool) used to

fuel the whole publishing and buying process on the DECENT network.”

CryptoCurrency Magazine:

“What DECENT is building is a media platform of the future,

which is supported by the block chain technology.”

Blockchain News:

“The DECENT Software Sale (Initial Coin Offering or ICO) is a one­-time opportunity

to participate in a project that aims to tackle the future of media with Blockchain Technology.”

Bitcoin News:

“Using blockchain technology, it allows creators to freely share their content

on a peer-to-peer network while maintaining a secure record of ownership.”

TECHNICAL DETAILS

DECENT combines several functional layers. One layer takes care of distributed storage.

We build on the results of the Tribler project, adding own extensions, such as the proof of retrievability,

to provide highly scalable, anonymously distributed, guaranteed storage that automatically scales based on the content popularity.

Download    WHITEPAPER

The heart of the solution is, of course, the blockchain. We are designing and fine-tuning several processes and associated transactions for our use cases – publishing content, buying content and providing feedback. We use a lot of underlying cryptography inside to make everything work, just naming decryption key sharing, various zero knowledge proofs, etc. The devil is in the details, so as we are still working on technicalities, for detailed description please wait for our white paper.

Last but not least, the user experience would not be full without recommendations. Since all data are available in the blockchain, anybody can execute data mining to find the most suitable content. DECENT foundation plans to incorporate their own recommendation engine for their clients, but it is totally up to the users.

USE CASES & INCENTIVES

DECENT is an Open Source protocol allowing app builders to create various applications

with the functionalities and design specifications according to their needs.

Possibilities of usage:

Medium-like blogging and publishing

Soundcloud-like music publishing

Amazon-like e-book publishing

Software sale

Shutter stock-like photo sharing

Electronic newspaper publishing

Cost-effective academic paper publishing

Indie games development

Video streaming

Audio streaming

Content Publishing / Buying process:

Upon creating the content an author’s client will encrypt it, possibly adding free preview, and create a content package. This package is then anonymously shared with publishers/miners. These guys will be also given their encryption key shares.

The author’s wallet is debited the certain amount of tokens for publishing, which will be later distributed (based on the proof of retrievability) to the publishers for storing the content. This way the miners are incentivized to share their disk space with the community.

The second use case is buying the content. The consumer browses the available offers, e.g. based on recommendation engine suggestions, and can check the free preview. When he/she decides to buy it, he/she will also download the encrypted part, pay for it and retrieve the encryption keys via the blockchain. Technically this is the trickiest part where we use several interesting techniques to avoid frauds such as blockchain-based smart contracts with escrow and ZKP.

Last but not least, consumers can provide feedback to the author in the form of rating. This is also a blockchain-based transaction.
