Experienced Team

Synerise has a team of 150 experienced AI engineers, blockchain developers, software engineers. It is backed by top industry advisors and experts.

Enormous Potential

Global spending on artificial intelligence already exceeds $7.34B. It is expected to reach $89.8B by 2025, an incredible compound annual growth rate of 39%.

OktAI Vision

The artificial intelligence (AI) industry is projected to be a trillion dollar market. However, only large enterprises currently have enough data, resources and skills to build up AI capabilities.

Our vision is to democratize access to AI and function as a global AI technology backbone, fostering collaboration and AI adoption. To achieve this, we are creating the OktAI platform, a blockchain-based infrastructure and smart contract environment, providing a complete AI ecosystem with economic models for data and hardware sharing, and AI service provider interoperability solutions.

Problems OktAI Will Solve

OktAI blockchain architecture is designed to solve issues related to data, AI, computing power, and storage.

Data Scarcity

Training a deep neural network requires enormous amounts of data. Large datasets are usually not publicly available and regulations regarding consumer data are becoming more and more strict. AI technology requires data governance and infrastructure vastly more complex than most businesses can afford.

Lack of AI Capabilities

Creating high-volume and low-latency distributed AI tools is sophisticated, requiring exceptional skills and experience. Moreover, AI specialists expect high compensation, something the majority of small and medium-size businesses cannot afford.

Insufficient Computing
Power and Storage

Independent developers do not have access to the computing power and storage necessary to train their models. At the same time, small and medium-size businesses do not have enough resources to implement AI tools and run them efficiently.

Technology

The OktAI blockchain platform uses a mix of on-chain and off-chain solutions in order to provide the necessary scalability for data and transaction-intensive AI technology.

OktAI Native Blockchain
At the heart of the system is the OktAI blockchain, a high-performance blockchain algorithm based on Delegated Proof of Valuable Network Participants. It guarantees high-transaction throughput and almost instant finality.

OktAI Nodes Infrastructure
OktAI blockchain is composed of a number of nodes that need to comply with a series of hardware criteria. OktAI nodes provide distributed data storage and computing power to the network.

AI Development Infrastructure
The off-chain AI Development layer encapsulates various AI primitives, providing a programmable environment and APIs for AI technology development, interacting with distributed storage and computing resources.

Decentralized storage and computing power
Data storage in OktAI is provided through off-chain distributed data-storage. An on-chain timestamping service allows periodical storage of data hashes. Full nodes provide the necessary AI processing power for AI solutions implemented on top of OktAI.

Ecosystem

graph

OktAI Ecosystem. This is a place where businesses, data providers, and AI developers come together. Data providers can monetize their data by exchanging it for tokens, businesses use tokens to purchase data and access to AI solutions, and AI developers train their models on purchased data and sell their solutions to businesses.

Nodes Infrastructure. Owned by 101 elected delegates, the infrastructure provides transactions consensus, data storage, and computing power. Each node must meet strict hardware requirements. In the early stage of development, nodes are rewarded with tokens from the Reward Pool; later, they will receive transaction fees.

Governance Protocol. A system that manages the entire election process. Based on OktAIV - voting token, the governance protocol is designed in a way that supports development of self-governing OktAI Infrastructure.

OktAI Foundation. During the early stage of development before other valuable network participants join the network through the election process, the Foundation provides incentives and rewards, as well as a consensus mechanism, data storage, and computing power.

Frequently Asked Questions

OktAI is the world’s first self-governed AI Infrastructure. It provides a decentralized environment for data, AI/ML models, storage, and computing power. It uses a mix of on-chain and off-chain solutions in order to provide the necessary scalability for data and transaction-intensive AI technology.

Our mission is to solve major issues related to data scarcity, AI, computing power, and storage. Only large enterprises currently have enough data, resources and skills to build up AI capabilities. OktAI will enable medium and small-size companies to use AI, and it will also provide access to cheap storage and computing power.

We distinguish two tokens within the OktAI Ecosystem:

  • OktAI token. A utility token used as the main form of value exchange in the ecosystem. Perfectly liquid on the external exchanges and within the network.
  • OktAIV token. An internal token within the OktAI Ecosystem. The governance token that allows valuable network participants to vote for nodes delegates. OktAIV can be obtained within the network by providing value to the development of the ecosystem.
  • OktAI is a self-governing ecosystem. Nodes validators will be elected by Valuable Network Participants in the election process. Nodes validators will be rewarded for maintaining the network consensus and providing computing power and data storage. Half of the reward from nodes will be distributed to validating node owner while the other half will go to the network participants that voted for the validator.

    Synerise is the company behind OktAI. The company was founded in 2013 in Poland, employs over 150 people, and serves 500 corporate clients. Synerise will be responsible for building the OktAI technology. It will participate in developing AI tools, promoting OktAI, and attracting corporate clients and partners to join the OktAI ecosystem.

    Private sale discussions have commenced. We will not hold a public token sale.

    No, we will not hold a public token sale.

    Listing will be announced before the token release. Please follow our Telegram channel for updates.


    In the past 6 months, OktAI team tested all technical hypotheses, ran the feasibility study and finalized the system architecture specifications. We are currently building the prototype and plan on presenting the MVP in November.

    DPoVNP (Delegated Proof of Valuable Network Participants) is similar to Delegated Proof of Stake. Validating nodes are elected by Valuable Network Participants to produce blocks and participate in the consensus process. Valuable Network Participants must own OktAIV voting tokens in order to vote for delegates. Both validating nodes and voters are rewarded from reward pool and network fees.

    The initial node requirements for full nodes are as follows:

  • A minimum of 1 TB of storage capacity
  • At least 1 CUDA compatible GPU with 8MB RAM
  • A minimum 4,000 IOPS SSD disk
  • A minimum network connection speed 150 mbits/s
  • The minimum hardware requirements for validating candidates are as follows:

  • A minimum of 5 TB of storage capacity
  • At least 4 CUDA compatible GPUs with 8MB RAM
  • A minimum 4,000 IOPS SSD disk
  • A minimum network connection speed 150 mbits/s
  • Stake 10 000 OktAI tokens
  • To verify compliance, nodes need to pass a benchmark test.

    Nodes contribute distributed computing power in the form of CUDA compatible GPUs. Computing power is pooled between validating nodes and their voters. The validators act as gateways. AI models can be trained using this computing power and resource providers are rewarded for the provided GPU.

    Nodes contribute disk space which serves as data storage for AI models and data provided by members of OktAI network. Distributed data storage in OktAI is organized off-chain. An on-chain timestamping service allows periodical storage of data hashes. The OktAI off-chain data storage is similar to the Interplanetary Filesystem (IPFS), in that it uses distributed hash tables as a way of dividing data into blobs that are distributed across a network. However, rather than relying on IPFS with its unpredictable response time, OktAI uses a highly optimized system based on participating nodes.

    The delegate proof of valuable network participants protocol has been designed to provide high transaction throughput and almost instant finality, with expected 500 - 1,000 TPS.
