Nebulas Roadmap

The development of Nebulas is organized by the Nebulas Technical Committee and is executed by the Nebulas Developer Team, the Nebulas Research Institute and community developers. The core members are primarily computer science and cryptography experts from China and the United States. The engineering team members have prior work experience at leading technology companies such as Google and Microsoft. In addition, NCC Group, Hackerone, and other auditing firms are involved in code review and security checks.

Nebulas Core Roadmap

Nebulas is a next-generation public chain built on the foundation of three principles: Nebulas Rank (NR, blockchain value ranking), Nebulas Force (NF, self-evolving without hard fork), and Nebulas Incentive (DIP: Developer Incentive Protocol & PoD: Proof of Devotion). By 2020, The autonomous metanet will be released via Blockchain technology.
