Spheres of Functionality?
When a financial system has no infrastructure, such as a meta-currency, it needs to "out-source" certain tasks to other financial systems that do posses infrastructure.
If a financial system is going to perform one task for the meta-currency, then the most efficient thing to do is to have it also perform the other similar tasks that the meta-currency needs to have performed.
All of the tasks in this group provide a similar type of functionality to the meta-currency. Together these tasks make up a sphere of functionality (SoF).
This sphere of functionality is provided to the meta-currency by the infrastructure-based financial system. The meta-currency relies on the infrastructure-based financial system to provide this sphere of functionality.
If it is a hard fork,
how will SystemD be different?
There are several very significant changes that we will be making after forking the main Ripple ledger. Here are a few:
The largest of the currently largest wallets will all be nullified. (This is a one-time event.)
Historical transaction data will be stored in a Distributed Hash Table
There will be a currency distribution program where all active, registered members on SystemD will be eligble to receive a daily stipend of 120 SyD
Become a node
What hardware do I need?
There is no special hardware that you need to become a node on the SystemD Network. Any device that has a web browser can become a node on the SystemD Network.
One of our goals is to preempt the need for specialized hardware. This gives everyone the chance to participate in the Network.
Currently, we provide two different ways for you to become a node on the Network: Docker image and source code.
Our Web based client will be coming soon.
