Algoritm of network training

Each node forms its own dataset (training sample) from the blockchain data.
On this data, a layered training of the genetic algorithm occurs. Every next layer is learning the previous one: training on the principle of an autoencoder.
After the pre-training, the backpropagation method is applied to tighten the weights to a minimum. The network must be trained before the next block cycle.

Choosing the best  network

The nodes form a test dataset prior to the formation of a new block cycle.
After the formation of the test sample, the matrices are checked.
The matrix with the smallest error wins and gets loaded into the next era.
The node of the winning matrix receives Velas (VLX) from the network
By solving blockchain network maintenance tasks, each AIDPOS node makes an intellectual contribution by further developing a neural network. This all happens without requiring any understanding programming languages by operators of selected nodes.

Network Versions  RollOut Schedule

Token Swap: CoinpaymentsCoin to VELAS will be done via Coinpayments platform on 4th of July 2019 and will mark the day of VELAS independence from original token. This will also launch first Stage described in Technical Paper:
Stage 1 (Pre-Alpha):
Creation of the blockchain system structure, coins, transactions on 4 nodes. Nodes will be run by network organizers during pre-alpha stage. Smart contract in wallet will allow all CPS coin (CoinpaymentsCoin) users to swap 1:1 to VLX (Velas). Creation of tokens or custom digital assets.
Each Stage is estimated to take 3-6months to roll out.
