    Focused Discussion: Linking out from Doc 001 (Governance Document)

    I'm not a big fan of interlocking documents, and I prefer strong separation of concerns. Tor deals with more documentation day to day than I do. I get that clicking links makes navigation easier. Also makes broken links more likely. But checking links isn't that hard?

    Guide Pay Review: September 2019

    I'm okay with 600 still, or even an increase, but either way with a cavat: Let's remember this discussion when (I hope very soon) 600 fct looks like we are just pouring money on the guides. Getting paid in tokens and investing in the blockchain ecosystem like this needs to have its rewards...

    All anchors Bitcoin and Ethereum have been written.

    [Factom, Inc.]-014 Anchor Master

    We are anchoring to Ethereum, and we have APIs for accessing those anchors. If you go into the Factom Explorer, and look at a directory block, you will see something like: The Ethereum button shows the ethereum transaction that is the anchor, and the JSON gives you the formatted receipt that...

    We believe these tasks should be decentralized and are committed to make them decentralized, as I think I have said multiple times now. That said, it isn't as simple as flipping a switch, and the best answers and solutions have yet to be designed and implemented. I am confident that we on the...

    Clay was on vacation for a week or so. He is back at work now. Sometimes people do have time off, and August is prime time for vacation.

    We have not sold any FCT on exchanges. We don't want to sell FCT, but we are currently in a position where we have to preserve capital. So I can't say that we will not sell tokens. I can say we are looking for the best parties to work with to sell tokens who are interested in holding them, if...

    I have not looked at the big sales on the market; we have used OTCs for capitalization, but it is reasonable to assume that entity may have liquidated tokens. On the other hand, the richest Factom holder (you can seem them here) is clearly not even an exchange (the pattern doesn't have the...

    So far, @Paul Bernier has volunteered to join Steven and Brian (who also sit on the core committee) to learn and understand restarts and onboarding. (I will exclude myself because I am not up to speed, even though I am on the core committee). We can bring him on board (details and timelines...

    Likely English plus my strange math. What I said: If I had done 1) and 2) exactly the same, I'd have said 1) 7 and 2) 5-6

    We are on the core committee, so this is already done. See my discussion above about the repeated assumption by many parties that we are not on the core committee, and/or are not cooperating with the core committee. To date, I am not aware of any rejection or refusal to participate in...

    Well it does mean the expertise is in the core committee. At this point in time, we have not refused any suggestion for reorganizing responsibilities within the core committee that I am aware of. And even in the past, if we (as a committee) had decided to more tightly control tasks (or simply...

    Since this repeatedly comes up, but nobody addresses it, let me make this clear. The core committee has 14 members. Brian, Steven, and myself are members of the core committee, and also happen to work for Factom inc. So while we want to get more core committee people involved in tasks like...

    3-4 people are 3 to 4 people full time on the project. The fractional efforts in QA, Devops, Program Management, and other support tasks for the protocol are people we could add up into additional FTE numbers, but we didn't do so because they are hard to predict and measure. Certainly as much...

    We can add particular people to this process. It is more about security than Factom Inc., but quite a number of people have demonstrated ability and earned trust in the ecosystem at this point.
