BotChain Test Network - FAQs

What is the objective of BotChain test network launch?

The objective of the BotChain test network launch is to offer a preliminary look at the BotChain Registry DApp and to gain valuable insights from the BotChain community.

The mission will serve as twofold:

  1. To educate the BotChain community on interacting with the BotChain Registry
  2. To build BotChain network and gather feedback to help guide us with product decisions

What is included in BotChain test network launch?

The initial focus is on provisioning features that lay the foundation in building a truly decentralized and distributed system including :

  • BotChain Registry - dApp deployed in Kovan test network
  • BotChain Services
    • BotChain Registration Service
    • BotChain Curation Council Application

What is the BotChain Registry?

BotChain Registry serves as a decentralized and universally accessible whitelist for all accredited Bot/AI Developers, Bot/AIProducts.

BotChain Registry is a smart contract implementation on the Ethereum blockchain which stores developers, products(a.k.a. AI products) validated by other BOTC holders. BotChain Registry is one of the early public implementations of a Token Curated Registry. BOTC holders will access a token-weighted voting mechanism through the Curation Council interface to vote on whether a developer or AI product can be added to the BotChain registry.

BotChain Registry would be running in the Kovan test network of Ethereum.

What are BotChain Services?

BotChain Services are applications that you build on top of the core BotChain dAPP. In the test launch we are launching a couple of basic services that help interacting with the BotChain dApp.
