Introduction

What is in it for you?

Our Aion Java Kernel runs the network and is currently the core of what Aion offers. Since it's launch, the kernel team has been hard at work refining the various processes inside, we're looking to jump into a different gear. We're looking for individuals with previous Network Protocol design experience to help us create the next revision of the Aion P2P protocol. This is in conjunction with a team dedicated on the new Consensus Efforts, which presumably will run on messages relayed through this upgrade P2P protocol. If you're itching to create the next generation of protocols that build upon the state of the art (RLPx, Bittorrent), we're interested in you…
