II. Marketing Progress

Since the transformation of DBC into DAO in 2021, the DBC Council has gradually assumed a more important role in community governance, market promotion and ecosystem expansion, while the DBC Foundation has been focusing its efforts on technology development, and the two have been tacitly cooperating in promoting the development and growth of the DBC ecosystem, and making unremitting efforts towards the goal of constructing the world’s largest distributed high-performance computing network in the era of AI+Meta Universe.

In the past year, the mainnet of DBC computing power network operated stably without a single security incident; after solving a series of technical and commercial problems, the Cloud Internet cafe business has made positive progress in many countries such as South Korea, Vietnam, mainland China, Japan, etc. Especially in South Korea, it is about to enter the stage of large-scale commercialisation and promotion, and has gained strong support from local Internet cafe industry associations and media, and it is expected to lead the revolution of the Clound Internet Cafes; the DBC’s rental fee destruction programme has been approved by the Council and the community, and is now beginning to bear fruit; at the same time, DBC has joined forces with Hua Wei Cloud, Polypon and other organisations to set up the Metaverse and Web3 alliances. The following is a compilation of some of the highlights of 2023:

  • ZEST CLOUD launched a cloud Internet cafe with the largest chain Internet cafe group in South Korea jointly in April 2023. The two will use this Internet cafe as a pilot. At present, the Internet cafe has 120 machines;
  • DBC, DeepLink and GEMS established cooperation in Vietnam’s e-sports field in May 2023, allowing players to use high-end GPUs in cloud Internet cafes on ordinary computers;
  • DBC Founder, Feng, introduced DeepBrain Chain to the Mayor of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in June, 2023;
  • DBC&DeepLink’s team attended “MARVELS HCMC 2023” in June;
