What is Ravenverse?

The foundation for any Machine Learning or Deep Learning Framework. Simply put, it is more like a decentralized calculator, comparable to a decentralized version of the IBM machines that were used to launch the Apollo astronauts. Apart from building ML/DL frameworks, a lot more can be done on it, such as maximizing yield on your favorite DeFi protocols like Compound and more!


Roles in Ravenverse

The Ravenverse is a community-developed implementation of the decentralized computing model outlined by Raven Protocol. Within the Raven ecosystem today, there are three main actors:

  • Requester: Requester is a person/entity who wants to request some compute power for their decentralized application. These requirements may vary from simple mathematical calculations to training complex ML/DL models.

  • Provider: A provider is a person/entity that wishes to provide computing resources to support the requester's decentralised apps.

  • Facilitator (support coming soon): Facilitator is a platform, website, application, that uses our tools like ravop, ravjs, ravpy to empower requesters and providers with no code tools to participate in the ravenverse network.



Core modules

  • RavOp: Core operations models for distributed computation
  • RavSock: Socket server to moderate client connections
  • RavFTP: FTP server to facilitate the transfer of files

Modules built on top of core modules

  • RavML: Machine learning specific library
  • RavDL: Deep learning specific library
  • RavViz (coming soon): A dashboard to visualize operations and client connections

Client Modules

  • Ravpy: Python client for federated analytics and distributed computing
  • RavJS: Javascript library to retrieve and calculate operations



The current release of Ravenverse supports Distributed Computing and Federated Analytics across a network of Requesters and Providers around the world.

Distributed Computing

To share and coordinate their processing capacity for a shared computational need, such as the training of a sizable Machine Learning model, distributed computing connects diverse computing resources, such as PCs and cellphones. Each of these resources or nodes receives some data and completes a portion of a task through communication with a server and, in some situations, with other nodes. These nodes can coordinate their operations to quickly and effectively meet a large-scale, complicated computational requirement.

Federated Analytics

Key statistics like mean, variance, and standard deviation may be generated across numerous private datasets using federated analytics, a novel method of data analysis, without jeopardising privacy. It functions similarly to federated learning in that it does local computations on the data from each client device and only provides requesters with the aggregated results—never any data from a specific device. Without leaving the premises, sensitive data can be examined, including financial transactions, employee information, and medical records.

Detailed walkthroughs (from both Requester's and Provider's perspectives) on setting up and testing both distributed computing and federated analytics driven algorithms can be found under Tutorials folder.



This repository can be used by both requesters and providers as a foundation for setting up Raven's various other libraries and running their algorithms.

Create a Virtual Environment

conda create -n <env_name> python=3.8
conda activate <env_name>

Clone the Repository

git clone

Getting your Ravenverse Token

Visit the Ravenverse Website (preferably on Chrome) and login using your MetaMask Wallet Credentials.

Copy your Private Ravenverse Token. This token will be required by all Raven libraries to authenticate transactions and data transfers.

For Requesters

Install our python packages hosted on PyPi.

pip install ravop
pip install ravdl
pip install ravml

With these libraries, Requesters can build, train and test their ML/DL models.

For Providers

If your wish to enter Ravenverse as a Provider, you must install RavPy:

pip install ravpy

RavPy is a python SDK that allows providers to intuitively participate in any ongoing graph computations in the Ravenverse.



Documentation for each library of Ravenverse can be found in the files of the corresponding GitHub Repositories.
