[I]1. What pledges you are making to grow the protocol via grants (if any)?[/I]
Our pledge to grow the protocol via grants will be to coordinate, setup and deploy the first and only Factom GovCloud Network. This will provide an incredibly powerful medium through which existing ANO’s can meet the comprehensive needs of potential USG customers who are concerned with meeting FedRAMP High Baseline, Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and the Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG) Levels 2 and 4 requirements. USG agencies are interested in Factom. They are interested in the vast solutions it can provide, but are restricted in their ability to utilize the protocol under the existing infrastructure. Veteran will propose the grant to create an enterprise-level Factom GovCloud network that provides the access for these USG agencies to utilize the protocol to meet their requirements.
[I]2. What pledges you are making to grow the protocol in general (via ANO payouts or simply by time/resource dedication)?[/I]
The Veteran team will not take a salary in the short term. As we have thus far; we will continue dedicating our time to meeting with USG agencies to advance Factom awareness. In addition, we will be gathering information on the requirements they possess and ways the community can provide solutions.
We are excited about the potential our SBIR/STTR/DIUx grant proposals can bring to the Factom Community. When we talk about adoption and usage, these grants are a way of efficiently connecting the Factom protocol to what Paul Snow referred to as “fire hoses”. Veteran sees these as our way to generate income for Veteran while increasing the usage for the protocol the community desires.
