    Grant Round 2020.4 Final Amount V2 vote

    Due to my ineptness, the previous minor discussion and poll was invalid due to it being open to all community members. I am reposting this discussion and poll. Please let me know if this appears to be wrong again. I will plan to shut down the discussion early since there was no input on the...

    Non-Profit Organisation

    I agree that the legitimacy (or perception of) is key here. We've had plenty of reasons why we did not organize in the past. If it is quick, relatively inexpensive, and legitimate, then I would prefer to organize the EC as directors of the NPO.

    Non-Profit Organisation

    I think establishing the NPO is a good first step in catalyzing the change needed to move in the right direction. I do appreciate the question regarding the necessity of the NPO vice the executive committee. For the sake of discussion, what are the roles and responsibilities of either? With the...

    FPoS – Federated Proof-of-Stake

    Now that we have the Governance proposal wrapped up, I want to chime in and verbalize my support of FPOS for the protocol. I agree that we need some change in order to move this forward. Without the incentive of token holders to see the value in the protocol, we are going to continue spiraling...

    2020.2 Grant Pool Valuation

    That’s a great point that I overlooked... the bug bounties. For my calculator, I’ll add in the 1% buffer for future calculations. In the past as guides we used buffers but wasn’t sure which buffer to use. 1% seems appropriate. I’ll also work to code in the bug bounties and any “escrow” type...

    2020.2 Grant Pool Valuation

    Grant round 2020.2 is fully upon us and we do not yet have the final amount agreed to. I am proposing this two day discussion followed by a 36 hour voting period to determine the final amount for grant round. Based upon my grant pool calculator, I am seeing: Current block: 244175 Current...

    Strategic Restart Proposal

    Thank you for initiating this discussion, Matt. Here is the link to the document I was working on. It lists past SBIR funding opportunities filtered for the word "blockchain". This list is not all-inclusive and only shows a sliver of the funding opportunities that exist outside of the Factom...

    Amendment Batched Amendment - Removal of Guides from Governance

    Thanks @CryptoLogic for reviewing the documents. I think your discovery of doc 107 is accurate and I would suggest we edit it to reflect available FCT be approved prior to voting, not round closure. As for what to do should the standing parties not approve the available FCT? I would assume the...

    Proposal to trim ANO numbers

    It’s unfortunate we don’t have staking implemented. Assuming ANOs have bags accumulated, the ones that voluntarily step down would be able to transfer their voting power to staking instead if we went that way. Moot point though, so let’s figure out how to move forward.
