Federate This - Q12020
'Federate This' is pleased to provide an update on our activity.
1. Development Sprints.[/B]
We have reached number 32.
Each sprint is 2 weeks long. In the reporting period, these were focussed on bug fixing running up to the beta launch, fleshing out the user functions and now working on the Web portal, external signer experience, integrations and storage options.
[B]2. DHS Work and License Agreement signed off.[/B]
As part of the DHS work with Factom, Inc. we integrated Harmony's Verifiable Credentials SDK into the Off-Blocks app. This allows us to assign W3C ID’s to users or objects e.g packages to track & trace.
Currently focussed on interoperability using W3C presentations between the cohort. This culminates in a Plugfest during April to mark the end of Phase 1.
[B]3. Beta - Launch[/B]
We went public with our beta version of the product in early January. This gained a lot of twitter buzz, and has driven several additional business opportunities.
There were a number of bugs needed to be fixed, but we wanted to get it out there and start gaining feedback.

Successfully applied to the Dubai Smartpreneuer competition, coming in Summer. We are through to the Top 50, and will undergo a 4 day pitch competition, after which the Top 10 advance to the 2020 World Expo happening in Dubai later this year.
[B]6. App Store Launch[/B]
After a couple of weeks, we moved ahead with a production version of the Off-Blocks app. This entailed fixing some ‘showstopper’ bugs before uploading to the App Store.
The main purpose of this was to allow testing by large customers. As asking non-tech users to download Testflight and do a manual distribution was proving a considerable barrier.
Wrote a couple of blog articles to accompany our posts. These can be found on the Off-Blocks Newsroom.
Wrote and updated a Digital Signatures Presentation that we are distributing to help secure opportunities.
Making demo videos of the product to help with the sales cycles.
We raised to 50% back in December due to the low FCT price, and continue to do so to protect the grant pool.
Core Committee and Discord Moderator.
We look forward to another busy quarter.
