Welcome to the abstract of the bi-monthly Reddit AMA. We’re actually happy to see the enthusiastic and rising neighborhood participation within the Might AMA. The first focus of questions revolved across the ERC20 migration of GNT, The Subsequent Milestone, new staff members coupled with the reorganization of present sub-teams, attracting builders to the The Subsequent Milestone, and what’s in retailer past. These are the sections we’ll divide the abstract into.
This abstract will focus totally on the technical information regarding the Golem software program and roadmap, for the total model that features different subjects, you may head instantly over to the Reddit thread.
We’ve included a TL;DR on the finish of this submit.
ERC20 Migration, DeFi and Tokenomics
A major a part of this matter has additionally been lined within the ERC20 Migration part of the ReadyLayerOne synopsis weblog. Within the AMA we dived extra into it from our perspective and what to anticipate:
Our migration is deliberate and a good portion of the work in direction of beginning the method has already begun, nonetheless, we level out that it’s NOT lively nor has a beginning date at this present time. As soon as migration is feasible, it is possible for you to emigrate through a web-based app that we’re constructing and will probably be internet hosting ourselves. GNT holders will discover out extra about this instantly from our official communication channels. We’re additionally engaged on offering video and written tutorials, communications channels, and every little thing you will have. The migration app’s life will prolong via a good period of time, permitting everybody to have the ability to migrate simply.
As for responses on the subject of DeFi, we lined that we wish to see DeFi associated integrations with Golem pop up. We’re actively on the lookout for DeFi initiatives the place off-chain computation is required. If the computation efficiency profile is in alignment with the Golem Community, we wish to serve it. Furthermore, a big a part of our future migration is motivated by DeFi.
There was a query on Medium-of-Alternate (MoE) and for the time being GNT is solely MoE. We’d like to spotlight that we do analysis and attempt to keep open-minded concerning new use circumstances, new platforms, repute techniques, governance options, verification strategies, anti Sybils, tokenomics, and so on. So nothing is written in stone and utilization of GNT could be revisioned, which leads us to the next matter of our AMA abstract, The Subsequent Milestone.
The Subsequent Milestone (TNM)
We’ve lined the final matter of TNM beforehand, Kuba (who not too long ago participated in Cryptocurrency Weekly podcast, [in Polish]) from the Golem staff covers the aim of our path, that “we imagine that there’s a want for developer instruments that will be straightforward to make use of, have higher UX than clouds and serverless and permit them to write down resource-heavy functions that will profit from values like censorship resistance, geographical distribution and permissionlessness.”
The brand new Golem protocol is a detour to go well with these developer-centric wants, and it was determined over a 12 months in the past, that by dropping our assumptions on the prosumer market and the way verification must be carried out, a model new structure was required.
For the long-term advantage of the code and it’s upkeep, this new structure has been coded in Rust. A solution that gives an excessive amount of detailed perspective for this abstract to present it justice was on our option to construct the following iteration in Rust as an alternative of continuous with Python, yow will discover that reply within the AMA by one in all our builders, Tworec, right here.
To search out out extra, please see our Unraveling Golem’s The Subsequent Milestone, Half I blogpost. There have been just a few questions on constructing curiosity within the The Subsequent Milestone and budgeting, which we are able to mix to the next two sections of this abstract.
We’ve had just a few new staff members this 12 months, the newest of which yow will discover introductions for within the AMA, right here. We additionally went into how we’re discovering it at Golem up till this level.
One thing which might not be as instantly apparent from the skin is that the present staff members are additionally within the means of being reorganized into small, cross-functional, autonomous groups with a single focus and clearly outlined aims. The groups could be: SDK, ExeUnits, Decentralised Market, Funds (and a bit later p2p community, supplier shopper). The aim of the reorganization and new staff members is to go well with the wants of what we foresee for The Subsequent Milestone.
Talked about additionally within the AMA for budgeting, we don’t count on these modifications to impression our budgeting too drastically in comparison with the trail we’d have taken in any other case.
Attracting builders to The Subsequent Milestone
We now have determined to work on The Subsequent Milestone with a “developer-first” method. Which means we intent to launch, promote consciousness, get suggestions from builders, and enhance to go well with their wants. Two of our new staff members (Lee, DevRel, and Marta, UX researcher) will play a key function on this suggestions loop.
Within the AMA, we lined that till gWASM we didn’t have something to supply to builders. With the path we’re taking, and notably as soon as we’ve constructed our MVP, we’ll deal with providing as a lot as we are able to to help Web3 builders to construct on Golem. This consists of inside plans of collaborating and internet hosting hackathons.
Use-cases will probably be decided by builders, and if an organization needs to construct one thing that wants plenty of computing energy, will probably be straightforward for his or her tech staff to leverage Golem with out on-boarding hiccups. This leads us onto the subject of an attention-grabbing query on the AMA, “after The Subsequent Milestone is completed and operating effectively, what are the technical objectives of Manufacturing facility?”
Viggith dives into the lengthy reply of this and the way The Subsequent Milestone is the results of years of studying experiences, planning, and lots of months of constructing. Nevertheless, since what we’re constructing will grow to be such a versatile platform to construct on high of, it makes it fairly troublesome for us to foretell what path the functions constructed by builders will trigger us to take.
That is in distinction to the present Golem, the place we restricted it to us deciding on and constructing the use-cases. This gave us the posh of with the ability to plan a lot additional forward and know precisely what the longer term would appear like one or two years down the street.
Lots of the subjects lined on this AMA and its abstract wrap collectively, akin to the brand new staff members and reorganization of present staff members to go well with the wants of The Subsequent Milestone and for them to be versatile to go well with future wants which can be onerous to foretell because of the, synergizing with the flexibleness of what the platform will grow to be. Within the long-term, we’re assured that the steps we’re taking (and are going to take) surrounding The Subsequent Milestone will convey the most effective end result for the Golem mission and neighborhood.
Thanks for studying this AMA abstract and to all these in the neighborhood who joined in to ask us questions. As talked about within the introduction, we had been overwhelmed with pleasure for all of the curiosity in Golem’s previous and upcoming progress.

Over the previous 18+ months, we’ve used our experiences to plan, construct, reorganizing our groups internally (ongoing), and employed new staff members to go well with the wants of The Subsequent Milestone. Our token migration is being constructed however NOT but reside. It is possible for you to to search out extra particulars and updates as they’re launched in official channels (listed above).
