We, The People of Flux!
Flux is building the decentralized future of the internet. It’s a magical constellation of talented and highly motivated people, an innovative and free spirit, and awesome blockchain technology. Maybe it’s time you learned the way of the Flux?
First things first. Flux is not a cryptocurrency, it has a cryptocurrency, but that’s just one piece of the puzzle.
Flux is an entire ecosystem devoted to empowering the people and developers of the internet to develop, deploy and use the decentralized internet of the future, Web 3.0.
At this moment Flux consists of; A native minable POW cryptocurrency ($FLUX), a powerful decentralized computational network (FluxNodes) a Linux-based operating system (FluxOS), and a self-custody wallet and blockchain app suite (Zelcore).
An entire ecosystem with all these parts in itself is pretty unique in the blockchain space even more so because Flux is an independent, community-driven, open-source project with no venture capital investors, no corporate board of directors, no politicians, or other ties with the centralized institutions of the past. Flux is leaving the past behind and is able to power ahead without any ties that bind.
The way of the Flux is formed by the people, the spirit, and the technology that sets it apart from the seemingly endless horde of animal-themed crypto-tokens, next great thing (according to the venture capitalists who are setting up to dump on retail investors), Vaporware, Ponzi schemes or just straight meme projects.
Pick your poison, but know that if you go the way of Flux, you’ll be getting..
The People of Flux
Flux is a community project. The people involved with it are all doing it because they care for the project. People contribute in their spare time or pay expenses out of their own pocket to further the project. For many, it’s a work of passion. This brings with it a sense of community and Flux is a project with a very busy Discord where something is always happening.
The project has some highly motivated and highly talented people all across the globe working on it. So the project is always moving forward around the clock.
Developers are expanding and growing the ecosystem and its features every day, don’t just take our word for it, check the Flux Github, it is very active.
Node operators and miners are busy growing the computational power of the Flux network and securing the network, helping onboard new people, giving tech support, and discussing how to do the most efficient node operation and mining.
Community members are promoting and marketing the project, providing tech support, discussing trading opportunities, and sharing technical analysis.
Outside developers come in seeking to deploy decentralized applications and use the Flux infrastructure to grow their projects.
And everyone is sharing this together, having fun, and every once in a while a game of decentralized poker as well.
Flux is nothing without people like its GPU miners, node operators, and community contributors and this is reflected in its economic model where Flux holders, miners, and node operators are highly incentivized. It also has xDAO governance, so the community can submit proposals for the future of Flux to be voted on by the node operators of the network.
The Spirit of Flux
Flux is at its heart about decentralization, it’s building on the ideology of the bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto and aims to support and build a decentralized future.
Flux has chosen to be a computational cloud network for a very specific reason. The Flux approach can be used to challenge existing centralized institutions in a given business segment by building a decentralized alternative. Much like Satoshi Nakamoto’s original vision was to challenge financial institutions, Flux also aims to challenge powerful centralized institutions and in this case the ones who are hard at work to centralize our Internet.
With a lot of the internet infrastructure and data on very few corporate hands, the many become dependent on the few. The end-users have to trust that corporations will be good stewards of the internet. This creates a problematic trust-based system for the internet similar to that which Satoshi Nakamoto saw in financial institutions.
This impacts the entire internet, we’re on a pathway to an internet ruled by corporations rather than an internet ruled by the people. The question everyone should ask themselves is if we trust corporations enough to let them be the dominant actors and stewards of the internet — without any alternatives in place to balance against them.
Decentralization is, in many ways, about empowerment. Giving people the opportunity to build and use their own solution rather than rely on centralized institutions and be forced to accept their terms of service. This is why Flux has chosen to always stay an independent, community-driven, open-source project.
This is the spirit of Flux, to independently build the decentralized internet of the future. A Web 3.0 by the people and for the people.
The technology of Flux
Currently, Flux has a computational network consisting of around 1800 decentralized nodes globally with more than 8,400 CPU cores, 27 terabytes of RAM, and 600 terabytes of storage. The network is fully operational and continues to deploy many decentralized apps and developing active partnerships with blockchain projects, businesses, and app developers.
The Flux operating system runs on top of Linux to provide the network with verified, enterprise-grade compute power and utilizes the blockchain to ensure transparency in governance operations. The Flux network can run any hardened dockerized app making development and app deployment simple.
For instance, the Kadena and Firo blockchains run full nodes on the Flux network generating revenue for Flux node operators establishing Flux as an infrastructure platform for blockchain full node operations. Also, The network has deployed many decentralized apps such as Coinbase Rosetta nodes, Presearch decentralized search engine nodes, Dibi Fetch pricing oracle, and incubator projects such as Nitter privacy-based Twitter front-end and Dropalo messaging platform.
Flux has also pioneered technology to build bridges between blockchains and create exciting opportunities for trade and Defi. Flux has introduced parallel assets to give Flux holders easy access to the Defi world at large.
A parallel asset is a token that is part of the Flux ecosystem, but that resides on another blockchain. Flux will have such parallel tokens on 10 different blockchains. This will provide many opportunities for Flux holders as Flux can ‘travel’ to other blockchains and give holders access to the benefits and decentralized exchanges on those chains. The parallel assets can be returned to native Flux via an app called Fusion inside of the Zelcore wallet.
Flux technology and infrastructure is up and running, it is being developed further every day. With what’s already in place Flux is an established technology platform leveraging blockchain. It takes all the advantages of blockchain technology and merges that with real-world use-cases. It is a real decentralized infrastructure that will help innovate and grow Web 3.0.
Flux is here, where are you?.
The Flux network is fully operational, it’s growing in strength and continues expanding with new partnerships, apps, and clients. How far it can go remains to be seen, but the Flux community and team are committed to keeping pushing it.
Flux has laid the foundation of building a decentralized alternative to a corporate centralized internet. The building continues with more supporters, developers, and node operators joining the network every week.
The Flux spirit and technology seem to resonate with the people of the internet and many are willing to dedicate their free time to aid the project. People join for many reasons, but decentralization and blockchain technology in this case can be seen as a unifying power bringing people together to build.
Each person joins for their own reasons but all are working towards a common goal:
Keep progressing on the road to decentralization, keep on building that Flux!
