Skynet combines innovative solutions for scalable distributed ledger networks with the first blockchain chip to create an industry-ready IoT interconnection of unprecedented scale. The concept of Skynet, often referred to as the fictional conscious superintelligence system in the movie The Terminator, is becoming increasingly relevant with the recent explosion of growth in artificial intelligence and robotics.
Skynet Core is a license-free and open-source RISC-V blockchain chip that can replace the modern CPU with a chip optimized for the Internet of Things and Blockchain Technology. Skynet Core hardware will lay the real-world foundation to support cryptographic acceleration, neural network processing, and System-on-Chip development in IoT devices whereas the Skynet Open Network will serve as the distributed “hive mind” infrastructure that will give devices the capacity to self-organize, learn, and transfer information between one another. Skynet Core’s modular blockchain hardware design will enable physical devices to perform perception tasks on unstructured sensory data, support application development, and utilize blockchain networks. The application layer over the Skynet Open Network can be used to foster collaboration, training over the edge, and exchanges in value between devices. With both the hardware and network, billions Skynet Cores can be deployed to IoT devices around the world and be immediately connected by the Skynet Open Network.
Addressable Network Solution Design
SON (Skynet Open Network) aims to connect IoT devices and provide the infrastructure for an intelligent planet. To achieve this goal, SON’s design is configured to achieve:
– Anarchic Scalability.
– Separation of Duties.
– User Friendly.
SON Fabric is a competitively validated delegated proof-of-stake platform. The hub maintains the numbern of tokens on each IoT Chain and enables a seamless relay of data between blockchains. This means that the hub serves as a global bridge between all public and private blockchains on SON while also serving as a distributed exchange.
The Skynet Token offered in the OpenSingularity token distribution will swap over to all cryptocurrencies on Singularity once development is finalized. More exactly, the tokens will swap over to SON, Light, and Singularity. With the Skynet token, ICO participants will have access to the end-to-end platfrom’s staking tokens, fee tokens, and application tokens. Coupled with the Skynet Core, these tokens will eventually be the future gas for machines and serve as the backbone of the intelligent machine economy.
