Constellation Networks’ Hypergraph Hour Episode 45: A Deep Dive
In the 45th episode of Constellation Networks’ Hypergraph Hour, the team delves into a variety of topics, answering questions from the community and providing insights into their operations. The episode is a treasure trove of information for anyone interested in the workings of Constellation Networks.
Data Trade Manager (DTM) Discussion
A significant portion of the episode is dedicated to discussing the Data Trade Manager (DTM). The team clarifies that there isn’t a maximum number of DTMs or a maximum number of years the DTMs will receive rewards. However, there will be a cap on certain bounties, especially regarding the first batch of 5000 NFTs.
The team also addresses questions about the DTM’s ability to differentiate traffic into and out of a store. For the MVP, the DTM will only show the number of visitors, which is people entering the store. However, as the data preneur gains access to raw data, they will also be able to see the ins and outs of traffic.
Marketing Support and Documentation
The team acknowledges the need for marketing support and documentation for DTM owners. They plan to release as much documentation as possible, including a pitch deck or guidance deck that DTM owners can leverage to explain the utility of the DTM. They also plan to release an API, allowing data preneurs to build their own dashboards or share the API with their customers.
Future Upgrades and Bounties
The team hints at future upgrades to the DTM, including a new version with cellular capabilities. However, this would require purchasing a new piece of hardware. The majority of the upgrades will be on the software side, and all DTM owners will always have access to the newest software updates.
The team also discusses potential bounties based on the volume of foot traffic. They note that even a store with zero foot traffic provides valuable data, indicating that no one is walking into that store. Therefore, they do not foresee a bounty being created based on the volume of foot traffic.
The episode wraps up with the team thanking the community for their lively engagement and promising to address more operational questions about Constellation Network in a future fireside chat.
