Setting up your validator node by following step by step instructions.

What is OKP4 ?

OKP4 is a revolutionary public PoS layer 1 specifically designed to enable communities to trustlessly share data, algorithms and resources to build the Dataverse

The OKP4 protocol enables stakeholders to create Data Spaces where they can input their raw data without it being directly accessible to other members. Thanks to algorithms, new knowledge can be created by merging the data and extracting KPI’s for all uses.

The OKP4 protocol uses Blockchain technology to manage the sovereignty within the Data Spaces that will be sealed through Smart Contracts. And the KNOW token is the means of payment within the network.
