The Geo Web network is under beta development. That doesn't mean that you can't start using the Geo Web today to anchor digital content to the physical world though.
The testnet version of the Geo Web is live on the Ethereum Kovan network. Testnet publishing and browsing function just like our mainnet will, but without the economic incentives (freely available test tokens are used to transact in the land market). There are two interfaces that you can start experimenting with on the Geo Web today:
Alpha Spatial Browser (mobile suggested)
Below are the requirements to begin buying land and publishing on the Geo Web today:
Install and setup a wallet in the latest version of MetaMask browser extension
Navigate to the Geo Web Cadastre
Switch to the Kovan Test Network in your MetaMask extension
Click Connect Wallet button on the Cadastre and follow the prompts in MetaMask
The ETH wallet address that you connect via MetaMask will serve as your "Geo Web account" for transacting in the land market
Follow the pop-up prompts to link an IDX/3ID DID to your ETH address
This DID will be used to manage the documents linked to your Geo Web land parcels
Single-click on an existing parcel or unclaimed coordinate on the map to begin your first transaction
For existing parcels, click the Initiate Transfer button in the left panel
For new parcels, define your desired parcel shape and single-click again to lock it in
If you don't have any Kovan ETH, scroll to the bottom of the transaction panel and claim free kETH from the Kovan Faucet with your Github ID.
Complete and submit the required land parcel fields in the transaction panel
Sign the triggered MetaMask transaction
After your transaction is confirmed on the network, the Cadastre will refresh to display your new Geo Web land parcel
*Recommended, but not required - Install an IPFS node (Desktop or Command Line version) and the IPFS Browser Companion. Running an IPFS node on your machine means that Geo Web content publishing and resolution can be completed peer-to-peer rather than through a centralized gateway.
