Proposed Factom Objectives
Over the past three 3-4 years, we've had some challenges with "statements" made by ANO(s) about deliverables, customers, usage, sharding, etc. Some of these statements were true at the time they were spoken. Others were nothing more than wild exaggerations, to put it nicely. Because of this, people lost a ton of faith and trust in Factom. I think we'd all agree that we would like to avoid a repeat of this. This document, if presented as a "roadmap," goes in the "wild exaggeration" category. However, to an outsider, they won't know that this roadmap is not attainable.
Therefore, by calling this document a "roadmap" and presenting it to the public as such, we'd be intentionally deceiving people.
I am not comfortable with that and want no part of it. I think this scenario was simply overlooked and I hope people reconsider the broader ramifications of presenting this as a roadmap. We have a lot of problems, but at least we still have our integrity intact. Let's keep it that way.
