    Tracking [Factomize-10] Core and General Development

    Priorities for the Factom Protocol

    Twelve months is a short amount of time. With development resources being thinner than usual, most of this list probably will not get done. Some of them are already under development. Multisig + ETH Sig Decentralized ANO Management Modularizing factomd post wax release Improving elections or...

    That's the plan.

    Funded [Who-6] Core and General Development

    After much reflection over the weekend, I am lowering the ask from 20,000 to 12,000 and cutting the hours from 40 hours to 28 (3.5 days). This decision was a combination of a) bringing the ask inline with other development efforts currently being proposed b) allowing the proposals I'd like to...

    Unawarded [Kompendium-11] Factom-to-Ethereum Bridge+FCT-Staking, & FAT Core Dev

    Wanted to chime in RE: the ECDSA discussion. The original idea for the single-address gateway was never about technical feasibility of needing a single address but rather about the legal framework of running an exchange of sorts. The bridge would be considered a "money services business" and...

    Unawarded [Colin Campbell-1] FIP 2 - Distributed network restart

    It depends on what you want to accomplish, really. Distributing access to the current restart system is just a matter of Factom sharing acccess and probably takes less than 15 minutes, or alternatively a move to a new docker swarm managed by multiple people (not sure how much is involved in...

    Funded [Who-6] Core and General Development

    I have thought about this a lot myself in the previous weeks, trying to decide on what to do after Factomize's furloughing. The blunt answer is that that's how much I'd like to receive for my work: I have extensive knowledge of the protocol and the skill set to produce work of quality meets the...

    Funded [Who-6] Core and General Development

    That's hard to answer for certain, since PegNet is by far Factom's biggest application by volume, and Factom tokenholders can convert FCT to pFCT, so it's mutually beneficial. That's the reason I got involved with PegNet in the first place; at the time it was seen as a new path for ANOs to...

    Funded [Who-6] Core and General Development

    Executive Summary I will commit myself to work 28 hours a week to continue developing for the Factom protocol and Factom protocol related projects, such as the new P2P2 library, PegNeT, and a variety of debugging tools, as well as provide support for other developers and community members in...

    Maxing out a Factom network

    I followed up on this and wrote a sim to test the p2p libraries independently of factomd. first results are here: https://factomize.com/factom-tps-report/

    ANO Strategic Alignment

    I don't think that's true. When you have two different security models like PoA and PoW, you're entering a weakest link scenario. Assuming that miners mine the previous block and submit "anchor records" into the next block, what do you do with that info in case of a conflict? Scenario A: you...

    ANO Strategic Alignment

    Can someone give me a rundown on how mixing the current PoA with PoW would look like? As far as I know, they're incompatible ideas.

    Maxing out a Factom network

    Not necessarily. Golang channels are kinda tricky and due to the cooperative scheduling, I found that some channels are just not being worked off "correctly", meaning channel A will drain completely even though channel B has a much larger pile waiting. In practice, this resulted in some of the...

    Proposal to allow ANOs to go down to one server if so desired

    From a cryptographic standpoint this doesn't make a difference. Audit servers don't sign the blocks, so if there are fewer leaders than ANOs, it's theoretically impossible for all ANOs to sign the blocks. From a practical standpoint, you're right. Due to server outages/elections, there are...

    Proposal to allow ANOs to go down to one server if so desired

    "Meaningfully" is the key qualifier here. Proof of authority provides the immutability of all the data in the chain. The fewer ANOs involved in ensuring the integrity, the less decentralization there is objectively. If an ANO resigns it's not a big deal, the same way if a handful of ANOs reduce...
