    nakashu | 0-m-g - The Zero Miners Group

    I just want to input Nakashu has been a pleasure to work with on Pegnet. He's been a solid miner and easy to communicate with.

    Should ANOs go down to one server?

    I do believe a reduced authority set is technically viable. I think the testnet is a testament to that. Having double the number of nodes does provide more audit servers, but it also provides double the complexity. We do know the elections work better with a smaller number of elections, as...

    Core committee formation - Input from candidates please

    I agree 11 is fine. The core committee in the past has been largely a discussion group vs a strong organizes single effort. It's where vulnerabilities are reported and private discussion can be had to decisions. The problem with large groups is the conflict of opinion slows things down. However...

    Process Discussion Core committee formation

    I would like to be a part of the core committee. I would like to be apart of the discussions and maintenance of the core software and processes.

    Live feed API status

    I would like to add something. `BlockCommit` is what I think the DBState is called. We currently cannot confirm a DBState until minute 1 is processed of the next block. This means you can events from height n+1 before height n is confirmed. We could either split the BlockCommit into 2 states...

    Factom Live API considerations

    Currently, the design does require a "2nd layer", meaning a 2nd daemon will probably exist in some capacity. This solution was determined as we began to try and design the general-purpose solution for various use cases. When posed with questions such as: - Should we only send events for entries...

    Factom Live API considerations

    As far as bandwidth is concerned sure. The current code though has no distinguishment for a different kind of peer, so we will try and share it. Who was bringing up some of the side effects on just adding a new peer with this behavior, that really isn't a peer. It would add a lot of fake peers...

    Factom Live API considerations

    Something like that would make sense. I'm ok with sticking to the raw binary on things like entries, as they will be most of the volume and we don't want to add marshaling cost to factomd. But for many of the events, we could make the entire structure easy to parse with json or something, as...

    Factom Live API considerations

    I have an initial gut reaction against this. It sounds that would be effectively reimplementing a lot of the processing of factomd on the other side of the pipe. The idea of the live feed api is that factomd is already tracking the lifecycle of events, and could emit these with a much easier to...

    Factom Live API considerations

    After the exporting of information, the Live API Daemon looks good. I imagine the rest api might be more of a pass through in the early stages, and as we add events, you can obviously expand a lot of the data that can be exported from the daemon. I'd like to see more information on how the...

    Factom Live API considerations

    To clarify I am reading this post correctly, the majority of the post is regarding the second layer? The filtering, result set, etc? ------ As for a man in the middle, I don't think we need to protect against a man in the middle on the factomd side. A factomd will likely only have 1 outbound...

    Increase the fluidity of the Discord server

    @88mph I believe the only way to create an "opt in channel" is with a discord bot and permissions. We might be growing to the size that having a bot give us this advanced functionality should be researched. It is unfortunate these are not provided by default

    Ratified Doc 106 - Factom Grant Success Determination Process

    Will there be a method to amend the success if the grant recipient takes this vote, and decides to take actions to correct the failures. In the same light, could a successful grant become unsuccessful? I'm not sure if this really matters, as this could just serve as an initial take on the...

    Rough draft of "Grant Success" process
