Block Party Resignation
Factom community,

This letter is to announce Block Party’s resignation as an Authority Node Operator. In order to ensure a smooth transition, we will work with the guides to make this resignation effective at whatever date and time they deem appropriate. We have always believed deeply in the potential of the Factom protocol and will continue to be strong advocates moving forward. However, as a business, we don’t think this ecosystem is the right place for us to invest further.

In many ways it feels like we came on as an ANO a bit too early in the protocol’s development. There’s a lot of infrastructure which needs to be built before the ecosystem can support a startup like ours working on top of it. That’s not to say it can’t or won’t get built, but we’re not the best people to help build it. For that reason, it doesn’t make sense for us to take a spot from people who are.

We wish everyone the best of luck and will continue being your biggest fans. We still believe the Factom Protocol has the potential to become a global utility and change the way the world understands truth. We can’t to see where you all take it.
