Some FAQ about Berry Data
Berry Data is a transparent community-veriﬁed price oracle on BSC(Binance Smart Chain). Berry Data provides a trustless and decentralized alternative for off-chain data. Also, it provides the infrastructure for decentralized applications to query off-chain data by properly incentivizing miners to provide data.
Berry Data is an oracle system that parties can request the value of an off-chain data point and miners compete to add this value to an on-chain data-bank, accessible by all DApps on Binance Smart Chain. The inputs to this data-bank are secured by a staked miners network. Berry Data utilizes crypto-economic incentive mechanisms, rewarding honest data submissions by miners and punishing bad actors, through the issuance of Berry Data’s governance token, BRY, and a dispute mechanism.
BRY is Berry Data’s governance token. BRY is designed to empower the broader DeFi ecosystem to drive the creation of a fully transparent, community-owned, and open-source oracle platform on Binance Smart Chain.
The total BRY token circulation is 12,500,000. Token distribution is as follows:
55% - Mining: 40% of BRY will be mined out as block rewards to miners in the Berry oracle network; 15% of BRY will be provided through liquidity mining
23% - Ecosystem Fund: will be used for partners to build Berry Data project and its ecosystem as a vault. 7% will be used for the initial listing campaign and creating pools; 16% will be locked for 2 years and will be released every quarter
16% - IFO: will be sold on PancakeSwap IFO
6% - Team: will be locked for 2 years and will be released every quarter. Team vesting will start from the second quarter after the listin
Berry will dedicate to BSC ecosystem to improve its oracle product and expand partnership on BSC in the following few months. The detailed roadmap is as follows:
- Berry Data Oracle mainnet will be launched
- Miner tools will be released and miners can win BRY tokens rewards and services tips by providing data feeds in Berry oracle
- Data feeds "plug-in" tools will be released that dApps on Binance Smart Chain can easily access and require on-chain price feeds by easily engaging with Berry oracle
- Creating more strategic partners
- The updated Berry Data smart chain will take into consideration of reputation and track records of miners and source of data as important components for data selection. Those well-behaved miners and high qualified sources can get extra bonus.
- Disputes Center will be launched where every BRY token holder can monitor and dispute error data. Those who execute successful disputes will win huge rewards from the team.
- More partners will be on board to access on-chain data feeds through Berry Data
