Testnet Rametron Lite S (Server Edition)

This section will give you an overview of Rametron lite and stakes to a Rametron lite Node, for the Pando Network.

Overview

Using FFmpeg; this layer is mainly used to handle transcoding requests from users, using community member desktop-based package systems (Ubuntu) further sending transcoding versions to the Rametron pro layer to save.

Transcoding is a process by which a raw video stream is adapted to many alternative formats that a viewer might need. This allows the same video to be watched from smartphone, tablet or a laptop and still be seen in the highest possible quality. Transcoding is a computationally difficult task and thus requires an expensive hardware to be performed efficiently.

The minimum token amount to stake is 1,000 PTX. The minimum hardware requirements are:

Rametron Lite S Staking Process

Staking & Withdrawal process will be same as RT lite

Please refer the following link if you need guidance regarding Staking and Withdrawal for RTLite S:

Job Allocation for RTLite S

One Rametron gets job allocation at a time. The criteria for the job allocation are as follows:

  1. Online: The Rametron must be Online in the Pando Network.

  2. Nearby: Rametron must be nearby from where we start to upload, transcode, relay, store or stream.

  3. Available: Rametron must not be engaged, rather it should be available.

Rametron Lite S Rewards

The user can earn various rewards by engaging themself actively on Rametron Lite S. These are few ways by which the users earn rewards:

  1. Proof of Engagement(PoE)- It is received according to the time spend by a user online. The reward received in PTX will be equivalent to ~$0.01 per minute.

  2. Referral reward- If a referral from a user gets selected then, the user will earn the referral reward, which will be credited to their wallet directly from the Pando Blockchain.

  3. Proof of Network(PoN) Rewards- Based on the activity status of this icon, it provides the consolidated PoN rewards. It will get credited to the attached wallet directly by the Pando Blockchain.

Obstructed from RTLite S

If the Rametron nodes depart from the protocol, there would be few penalties against them.

If a Rametron is working for a job and suddenly decides to discontinue or leave, there would be penalties against them. Rametron Nodes will need to perform well in terms of node availability, hardware, and bandwidth in order to efficiently stream, store, relay and transcode data files and provide content to consumers. Our platform will use Proof-of-Engagement (PoE), Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and Proof-of-View (PoV) methods to check uptime and engagement (and act as collateral against poor performance and malfeasance) to ensure that Rametron Nodes adhere to minimal uptime criteria.

If the Rametron does not follow these criteria then, it will be blocked for next 24 hours.

Install & Configure RTLite S

1. Download & Install Rametron Lite S

First of All we need to install Docker by following these commands:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install docker.io -y

After this we need to install Rametron, the Rametron Lite S (Server Edition) using the following command:

For Testnet

For Testnet
cd ~/

mkdir remedata

cd ~/ &&  sudo docker run -itd  --name Rametronv2.1 -p80:80 -p5078:5078 -v remedata:/remedata  public.ecr.aws/rametron/rametronlite-server-edition:v2.1

Congratulations RT Lite S (Server edition) is installed.

Application is started and you can access it using URL below.

In web Browser

http://serverip:80

Local System

http://localhost:80

  1. If you are viewing using IP kindly ensure to open port 80 and 5078 for public to view using ip address.

  2. If you are viewing on localhost it will work well

To stop the Rametron

sudo docker stop name

To start the Rametron

sudo docker start name

2. Activate Rametron Lite S

While opening Rametron, it will check for minimum required Rametron version and system Configuration. If it is found to be suitable then, it will ask to enter Wallet ID & Private Key.

Now, the user needs to use the details from which they have Staked for Rametron Lite.

By Using this on backend, we will perform the following process to activate Wallet:

  1. Verify if the minimum required stake is available in the Wallet or not.

  2. Check Stake withdrawal status for mentioned Wallet.

  3. Also, do transaction of 0.001 PTX to confirm ownership of wallet.

  4. Check if this wallet is attached with any other system or not (Basis of RT ID- Unique Identity of each system in Network).

If everything is found according to the requirement then, it will activate the Rametron lite and bring user on Dashboard. The dashboard will look like the image below.

If in case there is any issue in the process mentioned above, respective pop-up message will be shown to the user on their screen.

3. Dashboard

As shown in the above screenshot, the Dashboard is mainly divided into five section. A brief detail for the same has been shown below:

How it works ?

Once Rametron is Online on Network, whenever a Video is uploaded on our infrastructure, either from our Pando DAPP or other partners, our 2nd Generation of Job allocation and transcoding Algorithm will find Rametron Lite which can serve this job (Video Transcoding) fastest and in the most effective way on basis of parameters like nearest (From video uploader), with best internet speed, higher computational capacity, etc. as per the uploaded video site.

Algorithm will also randomize job allocation, so that each Rametron holder will get transcoding job in a balanced way. Everyone will get job opportunities, as each video that is being uploaded will get transcoding in stages for different screen sizes.

After completion of each job, POE (Proof of Engagement) reward will get credited directly to the attached wallet in a time span of 3 minutes to 45 Minutes.

Rewards

The user will be able to view all their earning in the Earning section of Dashboard.

POE reward received in PTX will be equivalent to ~$0.01 per minute.

PON reward will automatically get credited to the attached wallet, directly from Pando Blockchain.

Referral Reward of 10 PTX will be received on each referral getting a job.
