This grant asks for $50,720 per month over 3 months totaling $152,160 for the development and support portions. Assuming a FCT price of 4 $/FCT would give a grant amount of 38,040 FCT for the Factom, Inc. portion.

There is also oversight on this grant being provided by the Sponsors, there is 300 FCT each for a total of 900 FCT.

The grand total for this grant comes out to 38,940 FCT.
Hi @PaulSnow, @Brian Deery, and @Paul Bernier:
During the last grant round, Factom Inc committed to decentralizing the restart process. More specifically, Paul Snow committed to working with @Paul Bernier. For many ANOs, this commitment was a sticking point in regards to approving Factom Inc's grant, so I wanted to followup to see how much progress has been made.

I was waiting for Factom Inc. to give an update as this is their grant, but as I was explicitly tagged I can also give an update from my point of view:
  • I got access this Monday to a Web UI that displays data from the swarm and that is used to diagnose a network pause.
  • I need to schedule next week a call with Steven to get an overview of how to read and interpret this UI.
  • My understanding is that I will get access to another tool allowing to trigger restarts. It is pending the integration of a similar authentication system as for the other web ui.
