Dear Kambria Community,
April went by fast, and it’s time for another monthly progress update! We have been hard at work as usual, and made good progress on both development and marketing.
We launched the MVP version of our Kambria platform this March. We opened up early access to our supporters to test it out. Based on the feedback received, we fixed bugs and made lots of improvements to the platform. Now that the early test phase is complete, we are opening up access to a larger group of people who signed up to develop on the Kambria platform.
The platform is shaping up nicely with the 4 main components of the Kambria open innovation model: Projects, Codebase, Marketplace, and Education. When fully developed, each section will be a content-rich curated site with tools to facilitate open innovation.
Bounties, competitions, hackathons are big components of how Kambria will drive open innovation in different verticals. We call these components Projects. We created KambriaVote, an on-chain voting mechanism based on Carbonvote to let the Kambria community be involved in various aspects of running projects. As a preview of KambriaVote, we created a few key tracks where development needs to happen for robotics to take off in the consumer space. Users can use their KAT test token to vote and signal which track they would think is most impactful. To vote, users submit a transaction to our smart contract from an Ethereum account that contains the ERC20 KAT test tokens. Each account can only vote once. The balance of KAT test tokens in their account will be added to the running total of votes. The tokens are not locked up or sent to the contract, they are simply counted and tallied. A user can change their vote by sending an invalid transaction and recast to another project.
In the this component, users can browse, explore, and visualize Kambria’s codebase. They can also use built-in tools to create and build out the codebase. The KDNA has been improved to include Bill of Material (BOM) information for each code repository. Later on, we will provide tools and services to help bring work from the codebase into the Marketplace as manufacturable and sellable products.
We shared previews of the marketplace earlier in March. In April, we updated the UI/UX and also continued to improve the visualization of products by incorporating BOM information and direct links to purchase parts.
On the marketing side, we attended some key events and conferences. Below are some highlights:
- We were at Crypto Invest Summit in Los Angeles, where we met awesome supporters
- We participated in Frontier Innovation Award and made it to the final round. Even though we did not win the award, but we had a fantastic response for our project from the audience.
With the progress we made in April, we are getting closer to launching and opening Kambria platform to everyone. We are grateful for community participation and support which help a lot in shaping up the platform. As always, we will continuously update our incredible community regarding every milestone in our platform development. We welcome your feedback including enhancements, bugs, feature requests or anything that will help us improve!
