Three primary tasks for the whole Tribler research team:

  • fully circular and self-sufficient token economy
    Create a richer incentive then tit-for-tat within Bittorrent. Deploy the micro-economy around tokens which we have been perfecting since the first deployed version in September 2007. Scientific micro-economy publications, presented recently at the Delft Blockchain Launch event:
    • Mining. Earn tokens by donating bandwidth. Credit mining effortlessly converts idle bandwidth into tokens. The mining boosts the health of the network. Underseeded swarms and popular swarms are identified and helped out. Dead swarms and spam are correctly dealt with. Users need to select a channel with content to boost. This signal from the user prevents spam. In a later stage we will auto-boost swarms in general.
    • Earn credits by relaying Tor-like encrypted traffic.
    • Get tokens for hidden seeding and being an exit node
    • Market. Sell and buy on our integrated decentralised marketplace. Convert bandwidth tokens into Ethereum or Bitcoin. Your karma as a merchant grows with each successful trade. Part of our Internet-of-Trust research.
    • Coin wallet. Move coins between a Tribler PC and Android devices. Offline storage inside Android smartphones. Transfer securely and effortlessly using simple QR codes without the need for Internet access. Focus on the "you can see it, you can spend it" security model.
  • Tribler anonymous downloads are fast and secure
    Donations of encrypted relays are essential for performance. We require the token economy to fix that. Currently our software is still a bottleneck. Only 2.5MByte/sec is unacceptable for our video streaming use-case. Currently our GCM cypto, tunnel latency or other bottleneck are slowing things down. #1882 #2548 Replace Dispersy tunnels with clean code of IPv8
    • Refactor the video-on-demand part of Tribler
    • Refactor the download core of Tribler. Libtorrent wrapper #3418
  • search, share, rate and enhance
    Vloggers, journalists, and creatives in general need to be able to use Tribler to share. The content within Tribler needs to become richer. Metadata needs to be perfect. Spam marking and voting needs to work. Relevance ranking and swarm popularity needs to be shown in search. Rich channels. We need to empower our community to sustain itself.
    • spam prevention, voting and spam marking
    • accurate swarm size estimations
    • Fast search with relevance ranking based on swarm size
    • rich metadata for channels
    • redesign of the AllChannel voting and channel pre-view mess. IPv8
