Dear Harmony

Kenso is really a great guy, he has put together a stellar team and the effort and dedication he has been putting in his project is second to none. I have been on Harmony for nearly a year and in my opinion a project and team like Morphware’s would add value and fit really well within this ecosystem of excellence

A project, for a change, that is actually buidling something, and quite revolutionary! Amazing to be part of such project and with a great team of really smart people! :raised_hands:

I am so happy to see a project like this. I often think about the GPU requirements for ML and why no one has created a solution like this. My guess is that its pretty tough but this team looks stacked. Excited to see what this project becomes. If it can earn more than Mining it will be an instant supply side success no doubt.

@kensotrabing can you elaborate on:

  • how you plan to use harmony?
  • what are the smaller milestones (q1-q4 this year)?
    thanks.

Hope you’re looking to completely migrate the token over to Harmony to mitigate the high gas costs on Ethereum. Think this project has a lot of potential, wish you the best of luck.

Thank you for the kind words!

That’s exactly what we’re planning on doing: completely migrating the token over to Harmony to mitigate the high gas costs on Ethereum

We plan on using Harmony primarily because of the rapid finality and low cost of gas

We would migrate our token over to Harmony, along with our JobFactory and AuctionFactory contracts

I am working on cleaning up the roadmap, now, but here is a high level overview of milestones ranked by impact over effort

Adding LinkedIn profiles, below, and to the original post, above:

Update: I can’t update the original post anymore, but I’m happy to answer any and all questions about the team :smiley:

With regards to use of funds, we would put 100% of any funds Harmony invests in Morphware into hardware.

We are already in the process of mocking up our first few cabinets (see: first picture below), but a quick rundown of the specific components that go into our worker nodes are:

  • [GPU] 6x Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition cards, as they are non-LHR
  • [Motherboard] 1x Asus Prime Z390-P
  • [Disk] 1x Samsung 980 Pro M.2 SSD
  • [RAM] 2x Corsair Vengeance 2400MHz DDR4 sticks
  • [CPU] 1x Intel i5-9400 LGA 1151 (9th Gen)
  • [CPU fan] 1x Noctua NH-L9i-17xx, as they are low-profile
  • [PSU] 2x EVGA 1300 watt, as we would like some redundancy; if one fails. We may actually reconfigure the power distribution within each worker node by getting creative with the harnesses coming from the power supply units, but that’s outside the scope of this comment.

There are also a couple of things I won’t go into that much detail on, like the case fans (5x per case); the case itself; PCIe risers; the actual server rack and literal nuts and bolts that come with the case; the cords & cables; and rack-level equipment like power supply units and network switches: but this is a high-level overview of how we would be investing the money into the business.

The worker nodes would be deployed to Asunción, Paraguay because of the attractive electricity rates, down there. I have been to Asunción before and have successfully set-up a business overseas before (Byte Academy India), so I’m confident that we will be able to get our first three cabinets up by June 30th, 2022.

Harmony fees and speed have personally spoiled me.
Truly believe positioning Morphware in the Harmony ecosystem will prove to be eventful.
I’m very excited to see what’s possible as more of the Harmony bridges come online as well.
Specifically I’m thinking on ease of use to expand the worker network without having to restrict access to a single chain.

I apologize for the lack of clarity, here, but here is a cost breakdown of the first racks.

This would give us twenty-five really strong worker-nodes!

To be clear, I know that I’m only talking about bootstrapping the supply side of the network, but we have already budgeted for a Kaggle competition; which is how we plan to build-out the demand-side of the network. We need the worker-nodes to be able to absorb the level of demand a Kaggle competition might create, so that’s why I’m focusing so much on it here.

In addition to the following roadmap, we also have a backlog of features that we wish to implement which will be added into the desktop client over the next four quarters. These features are captured in the table that this comment is replying to.

  • Q1
    • New website
  • Q2
    • Worker-nodes up at University of British Columbia and Harvard University
    • Morphware validator-node cluster
      • This just needs to be deployed
    • Whitepaper v2 with multiple machine per workload architecture
  • Q3
    • Five server racks up in Paraguay
    • Single machine per workload system deployed to Harmony testnet
      • JobFactory contract
      • AuctionFactory contract
    • Morphware client builds for Windows and MacOS
  • Q4
    • Validator-nodes working on Android
    • Single machine per workload system deployed to Harmony mainnet

We would like to offer Harmony 2,439,024.3902439 MWT for $200,000, which is an 18% discount.

The terms we propose are a 1-year lock with a limit of selling 25% per month, after the 1-year lock is complete.

Great detail and thanks for being so thorough. It was great meeting you at ETH Denver and again today on our Google Meet call. This project is approved through Harmony’s Project-X initiative for the investment amount of $200,000. Terms of the agreement include a 1-year lock with a sell limit of 25% per month once the lock expires. Total tokens 2,439,024.

We’re looking forward to seeing Morphware expand its operations and continue working through the roadmap. Thanks and we’ll continue discussions on moving forward!

Amazing, thank you so much!

It was great meeting you, as well!

I can’t thank you enough and we will definitely keep everyone in the Harmony community and beyond posted about our progress through our roadmap!

Thanks again!!!

We’d like to provide the Harmony team and community with an update on our progress this month.

  • We’ve completed the site selection process in Paraguay for the miniature data center.

    • We’re now in the process of creating a company in Paraguay, so we can operate there.

    • We’re also in the process of securing business insurance to protect our investment, there.

  • We have sent the first worker-node to the University of British Columbia. This node will be operated by the two co-presidents of the blockchain club.

    • We’re also sending a second worker-node to Dr. David Zehua Wang, who spearheads the blockchain program at the university. We’re beginning a pilot project with him that will advance the application of convolutional neural networks to detecting breast cancer in radiological imagery (he has a research background in machine learning, as well).

    • The worker-node at Harvard University, however, will be online next semester, as there isn’t anyone who will be available to maintain it over the summer.

  • We’re about a month away from the validator-node cluster being deployed, but substantial development is occurring, on that front (see: Validator downloadAndTestModel function · morphware/daemon@7c72419 · GitHub).
