Bitmark is looking to become the cornerstone of digital currency by providing a new way of attributing value to content, to reputation, and to reactions, such as likes. The only way to achieve the end-state we have set for ourselves is to set a series of goals to meet, not just for ourselves but for our community as well. This comes in the form of a Roadmap, which defines how we plan to move forward with meeting our milestones. The nature of a currency like this will necessitate testing periods, where we will test functionality and feasibility of the Algorithms, Code, GUI and CLI interfaces, the market numbers, and the communities perspective. A final end-state would include a list of features that we believe are at the core of the BitMark vision:

    • Decentralized Identity
    • Decentralized Storage
    • Reputation distribution via Marking
