ICP (DFN)-Introduction details
The DFINITY team has been committed to the research on the underlying technology of the blockchain since 2015, and is committed to developing a secure and powerful next-generation application-level blockchain global computer based on the blockchain. DFINITY is building a new decentralized public cloud computing service. This set of services needs to create a new blockchain mechanism similar to Ethereum, but with stronger performance, larger capacity and better compatibility. Commercial applications running on this mechanism will not crash, and do not require complex controls such as databases and systems. This will greatly reduce the cost of commercial applications (about 90% savings) and manpower maintenance costs.
The DFINITY community brings people and organizations together to learn and collaborate on products to help manage the next generation of Internet software and services. Internet computers allow developers to monopolize the Internet and return the Internet to its roots of freedom and openness. We are committed to contacting those who believe in the same opinions through events, content and discussions.
Our task is to build an "Internet computer" to reinvent the Internet as a computer that carries super-functional security software. Internet computer is a new technology stack that is unbreakable, fast, and expandable to billions of users worldwide, and supports a new type of autonomous software, which is expected to reverse Big Tech's monopoly on the Internet.
DFINITY was founded in 2016 by Dominic Williams.
The DFINITY Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Zurich, Switzerland, which oversees research centers in Palo Alto, San Francisco and Zurich.
Dfinity uses Probablistic Slot Protocol (probabilistic slot protocol), Threshold Relay (threshold relay), Uscid (unique state replication ID), Blockchain Nervous System (blockchain neural system) and other technical goals to create an unlimited amount of computing and unlimited expansion The blockchain computing system, and by expanding and strengthening the EVM ecosystem, provides applications with platforms with different characteristics, which conceptually belongs to the category of "Ethereum competitors".
Dominic Williams described the roadmap of DFINITY: The foundation was established in Switzerland in 2015, and by the end of 2019, the number of employees will increase from the current 75 to 150. At the end of 2019, the first public test network will be launched. The final launch of the main network may take place in the first half of 2020.
Obviously, when investment institutions like A16Z pay attention to DFINITY, the hype of blockchain is nearing an end. The founder even said: "We are not just a blockchain." DFINITY's system will be more like a new Internet protocol. Dominic has many years of experience in this field. He can gather the best talents and attract Internet giants. He confidently said: "We have the best team in this field."
