Strategic Priorities

Overall Goal

The DigiByte Alliance believes that the DigiByte blockchain offers foundational decentralized distributed ledger technology. This technology can serve as the basis upon which to build solutions, which can provide basic infrastructure security with regard to how information and value are expressed, created and exchanged.

As the current intermediary laden paradigms of today’s internet are restructured, the world will be looking for decentralized blockchain solutions upon which to reimagine how value and information can be exchanged and protected on the new “internet of value” freeway.

The architecture of the DigiByte blockchain holds great promise as a public communications network. It offers security via its fast and scalable methods for data verification, authentication, and expression of value.  We believe this is an ideal medium of exchange.

Research and Development

The DigiByte Alliance will facilitate development of the DigiByte public blockchain network to facilitate its widespread public use and adoption through the creation of developer tools and network infrastructure improvements.

The DigiByte Alliance has facilitated discussions and continues to participate in the development improvement process in conjunction with the core developers and trusted community members. The guidelines, set forth in the DigiByte Core repository on GitHub, https://github.com/DigiByteCore/digibyte/blob/develop/CONTRIBUTING.md#contributing-to-digibyte-core, outline and promote industry standard open source contribution through which implementation of code improvements to DigiByte will be performed in a democratic, structured and transparent manner in an effort to mitigate risk and preserve the integrity of its protocol.

Through this we will create, manage and enforce guidelines and processes for the DigiByte Alliance to fund its development projects and initiatives. These guidelines will serve as the DigiByte Alliance’s framework for funding various bounties and projects on DigiByte, including but not limited to, developer tools, resources and products to help developing consumers build next generation innovations and enhancements to the DigiByte blockchain. Research and apply for grant opportunities to fund the efforts of the DigiByte Alliance, which may include offering grants to facilitate this research and development of the mission of the DigiByte Alliance.

Maintenance

The DigiByte Alliance will help maintain the DigiByte blockchain as a benefit to the general public. These maintenance efforts may include, but are not limited to, covering operational fees, server support, audits, mining/node participation, as well as growing and protecting the decentralization of the network. 

Education

The DigiByte Alliance will facilitate education regarding the use of DigiByte as a currency and a blockchain technology in the emerging digital economy.

This education will be through: virtual and in person activities; attending and organizing meetups and hackathons to attract new developer activities; producing materials, such as videos and infographics; and interfacing with relevant governments, businesses, educational institutions, individuals, and associations.
