    Factom Non-Profit Bylaws - First Draft Discussion

    Thank you for all the work on the protocol’s non-profit bylaws. We are very lucky to have lawyers in this ecosystem, as well as dedicated members in this working group. My comments from first glance: The wording here could be construed as “The purpose of the non-profit is to provide...

    Continue with the marketing videos grant?

    The first video seems inline with the cost to me. As long as the remaining are the same, I don't see any reason to cancel. The reality is there's not enough funding for extremely high-end $5k a piece videos, and may not be for several months/years. I still think these videos are very valuable.

    Grant Discussion re: Triall Clinical Research grant proposal

    With the first grant round in 2019 now concluded we are disappointed to see that the Triall grant was not funded by the Factom community. We realize that with over subscription and development debt to fund it was an extremely competitive round. The grant was however the runner-up to be funded...

    Unawarded Grant [STAMP-IT-001] IoT gateway for Factom®

    Can confirm that Miguel contacted us. In terms of implementation their approach is quite different to ours, so there’s not much we can offer them in terms of support at this stage. In saying that, we’re glad to see a proposal for Factom-iot. It’s one of the most pertinent use-cases in our opinion.

    Unawarded Grant [GROWTH-FIXER-001] Marketing Strategy including Content

    Hi @Vince, Thanks for your proposal and answering a lot of questions so far. You mentioned this to @Valentin Ganev and I agree in principle, but the reality is it’s very difficult to determine the ROI of your proposal. How do you define ROI and when/how exactly should standing parties...

    Wonderings about ANO efficiency

    @liveanddie Thanks for the feedback ;) Also, thank you very much for the post, this is exactly what we need. I am a strong proponent for accountability. One note - TFA is only operating 25% on one server, the other server is at 45%, giving us a combined efficiency of 35%, so technically we...

    Process Discussion Should we implement a "trial period" for new ANO's?

    I’m not sure yet, Matt. I believe accountability is much needed, so I’m definitely open to that. Though, I think for this to be effective and viable beyond six months from the close of the next ANO election, we need to align pledges to the same cadence for the following reasons (which I posted...

    Process Discussion Should we implement a "trial period" for new ANO's?

    That's not the issue. The issue is holding new ANOs to a different standard to current ANOs. That's exactly what you risk doing by introducing different standards and empowering current ANOs. I think we can improve accountability by aligning pledges to the same cadence and yes, voting at the...
