The global moment we find ourselves in today is unlike any other. It has thrown up uncertainty and confusion, yet at the same time it has shed light on something that has always been central to the Streamr vision — the enduring strength and importance of community; the ways in which our connections are what strengthen us in good times and bad.
The Streamr community is not only invaluable to the growth of the ecosystem and the ultimate success of the Streamr project, it energises the team with ideas, challenges and discourse on a daily basis. So this felt like a good time to check in with you all, to review everything we have accomplished since launch, with your support. I’ll also be running an AMA on the 11th of June at 15:00 CEST, but this article can give an overview ahead of that, and perhaps prompt some questions for discussion. Let’s begin by reminding ourselves of the vision.
The Streamr Vision
Streamr was founded with the goal of building a real-time data infrastructure for future data economies. Ideally, all data streams in the world could be accessed via your nearest node, with participants incentivised to provide both content and delivery services on the system.
The cornerstones of Streamr’s chosen approach are decentralization, peer-to-peer and blockchain. This is because, in our view, the only acceptable implementation of a future data infrastructure is one that is global, scalable, secure, robust, neutral, accessible and permissionless.
