Swarm Foundation is proud to share its tech team’s internal agenda for the next 12 months. The aim is to create predictability in the development tracks and the wider organisation as well as help coordinate between the Foundation’s efforts and the efforts deployed to the broader Swarm community.
Through this shared and transparent understanding, we aim to further the Foundation’s purpose to support the Swarm network to thrive and provide the infrastructure necessary for a decentralised web.
We would like to invite our community, stakeholders and ecosystem to join the discussion in our Discord server, where we opened a new channel specifically to announce progress and new milestones.
The roadmap is a living document. This means that the Swarm Foundation always has 2–4 milestones worked out in detail, while also planning more “vague” milestones further in the future. Currently, four milestones have been announced.
This is a short overview of the milestones, for the full detail head over to progress.ethswarm.org.
Host unstoppable content on Swarm
Uploading and downloading content such as websites or nft-data is optimised and predictable. This functionality can be accessed through all Swarm products: Bee, gateway, swarm-cli, chrome extension, Dashboard, bee-js.
Completed: Q4 2021
Setting up and interacting with a Bee node is optimised for ease of use
Any crypto enthusiast with an interest in Swarm can set up and run a Bee node easily.
Time Estimate: Q1 2022
Node operators are directly rewarded for contributing their storage space
Contributing storage space is directly rewarded, regardless of whether the content is being accessed or not.
Time Estimate: Q2 2022
Optimisation for larger data uploads
Uploading and downloading bigger files and datasets is optimised.
Time Estimate: To be confirmed
More milestones will be added as the previous ones are achieved. Follow the progress on progress.ethswarm.org and join our Discord server and get all the latest announcements.
