EpiK Protocol is a collaborative knowledge graph platform comprised of 5 core participants: Knowledge Experts (KEs), Knowledge Nodes (KNs), Knowledge Gateways (KGs), Bounty Hunters, and EKP holders that has been jointly built, trusted, and safe decentralised knowledge graph collaborative platform with sharing benefits. A single user can perform many roles without interfering with each other.

Knowledge Users(KU)

Knowledge Gateway (KG)

Knowledge Nodes(KN)

Knowledge Experts (KE)

Bounty Hunters (BH)

KEs and Bounty Hunters, for example, are in charge of supplying knowledge, processing unstructured data into high-quality structured knowledge graph data, and maintaining data quality; KNs are in charge of continuously storing EpiK’s structured knowledge graph data in a decentralized network, ensuring its availability.

KGs make knowledge available by efficiently indexing knowledge graph data on a decentralized network and enabling tamper-proofing traceability. EPK holders are accountable for the EpiK blockchain ecosystem’s functioning and governance.

Knowledge Supply

KEs are responsible for providing reliable and quality knowledge, confirming and uploading it to EpiK’s knowledge graph, and finishing the knowledge supply process with the help of Bounty Hunters.

Knowledge Storage

Filecoin scenarios are generally universal storage scenarios that are used by huge files. While little bin-log files are produced by micro-collaboration with high frequency in EpiK Protocol’s knowledge graph collaborative scenarios, in order to make the most of network resources, EpiK Protocol plans to build a Layer2 storage network tailored for knowledge graph collaborative platforms.

Anyone with 1,000 EPK can be a Knowledge Node on the EpiK Protocol Layer 2 network (KN).
KNs must supply KEs with data storage services. Before uploading data, KEs must first send an on-chain message to register the data, after which they must look for online KNs for free storage (Deal). The KN then receives the knowledge data.

KNs are obliged to transmit an on-chain message announcing the sector where the related data is stored, telling the entire network that a complete copy of the data has been stored after they have stored the data locally and completed the PoRep.

KNs are obliged to transmit on-chain messages and broadcast the active sector’s PoSt on a regular basis, informing the network of the data’s integrity. To minimise wasting storage capacity, each piece of knowledge graph data is meant to be minimal, with each sector size set to 8MB by default.

Domain experts can use the knowledge node to store their data for free. The knowledge node can get computational power after storing the material uploaded by domain experts. Knowledge nodes that have finished file storage in the first N locations can obtain double the processing power for each new file supplied by domain experts.
