    Trading opens
    The tokens will not be tradeable until 1 week after the sale ends (May 30th, 2018). At this point in time we have a commitment to list the DTX token on at that time and are identifying one or two more exchanges to list it on, by that time.

    Mainnet release
    With the availability and the ability to trade the DTX token, the platform can move to the mainnet.
  • 5
    Setup and onboarding of an extended team
    One of the larger challenges for DataBroker DAO will be scaling the team fast enough to cope with market demands. Onboarding a new sales team and additional developers is a daunting task. Since September this has been an active focus and this will be the case for the years to come.
  • 6
    Gateway operator integrations
    The main road to mass adoption is integrating with gateway operators that enable the onboarding of millions of sensors in one go. The DataBroker DAO platform will be integrated with the gateways of these gateway operators. We will be working on both common standards and libraries to ease integration, and perform the initial integrations for the first operators in the DataBroker DAO Alliance.
  • 7
    Improving the (white labeled) frontend interface
    On the one hand is the focus of DataBroker DAO mostly on the dAPI. This is where the data streams will flow over, and combined with the smart contracts the core value of the platform. We expect quite a few gateway operators to use the dAPI to build a marketplace in their existing platforms. There will however be quite a few that do not have an integrated approach, or no existing systems to integrate with. That is the reason we will build a DataBroker DAO marketplace frontend and offer this frontend in a white labeled form to gateway operators. When first launching the platform this interface will be a basic one, and will require a diverse set of skills (information architecture, design, web and mobile development) over in the first two years to build a tier one frontend. This will be a heavy focus for Q3 of 2018 to reach the next guideline.

    Private data sales and whitelisted buyers
    Working with our alliance members has taught us a lot. Including the fact that there is a large set of data in the market that companies want to sell to either anyone except a competitor, or to just a whitelisted group of companies. As such this capability will be integrated in the smart contracts from the start, and work in the frontend side will continue into Q4 2018.
  • 9
    Data enhancement integrations
    Having easy access to large amounts of data opens up a wealth of options for many startups across the globe. Enhancement and aggregation will provide even more valuable data than the raw data itself. The team will look for, and work with partners in the Alliance to provide valuable services based on the raw data by providing libraries and integrations for commonly used tools. Integration with AI tools (like provided by the large cloud providers, or Tensorflow) come to mind. Initial integrations will be made with the dataprocessors in our Alliance in Q1 2019.
