Let’s take a look at what’s been happening at Streamr in June, starting with Henri Pihkala’s summary of the month’s activities:
It’s been a busy few weeks, with lots of heads-down development work as we build towards the Tatum milestone. In the current Brubeck version of the network, payments to Streamr node runners are made by the team each month. With Tatum, the full token incentive layer is added, which marks version 1.0 of the fully decentralized Streamr Network.
Another focus from the last few weeks has been the Streamr Chat App. The Chat App is an Ethereum based group wallet messenger pilot built on top of the Streamr Network. Chat rooms are streams on the Network, with messages cryptographically signed by participants. The beta version will be ready for testing soon, so keep an eye on our channels for updates!
We’re also working internally on our communication strategy and product market fit to support the Tatum launch beyond, as well as other developments that you can read more about below.

Decentralized Real-Time Prediction Network
Satori, an ambitious new project from developer Jordan Miller, sponsored by the Data Fund, is leveraging the Streamr Network to provide a better than chance real-time data prediction engine. Satori nodes communicate with each other and obtain real world data, so the Streamr Network is a perfect match. Read more about this fascinating use case using machine learning and real-time data to predict the future.
The community has enjoyed several recent YouTube AMAs from Streamr team members focused on the ecosystem, the latest project news, and the road ahead to the Tatum milestone. There was an ecosystem AMA from Matthew Fontana, a general AMA from Henri Pihkala, and most recently, a developer focused AMA from Stream developers Eric Andrews and Juuso Takalainen.

Streamr Lightpaper and the Chat App
We’ve made getting onboarded to the Streamr vision and tech a little easier with a new lightpaper. The lightpaper explains the core offering of the Streamr Network and tech stack, with some of the most prominent use cases highlighted in a concise format. Take a look for a first introduction to the upcoming Streamr Chat App, as well as a section on the DATA token’s utility. We’ll have more to share on the Chat App soon!
Streamr Node Contest Winners, Round Two
