Decentralization roadmap

🎉 Anyone can now try running the experimental xmtpd node software and be a part of the journey to decentralizing XMTP! In the future, xmtpd might replace the node software currently running the XMTP network.

Near term (~3 months)

  • Open source nodes
  • Third-party nodes in testnet
  • Smart contract inbox

Long term (~6 months)

  • Third-party operators can run xmtpd nodes that participate in the XMTP network
  • Incentivization in limited testnet: node rewards and economic spam control
