    Should ANOs go down to one server?

    What effect will dropping to one server have on PR? It could end up being counter productive if investors lose confidence. Once this decision is made, it will always be a milestone in the protocols history, that the network became too costly to run.

    Decentralization of the Factom Codebase

    TFA Discord Node Monitoring Bot

    My personal view, is the bot is done. It serves all the requirements we set out to achieve, and more. I have since started working on other unpaid Factom related projects, and will maintain the bot as required on the side. However there are these outstanding feature requests, and I feel my...

Many of which we have added during regular software maintenance, such as basic twilio support the recent e-mail alerts. We want to know if it's worth creating a grant proposal to add...

    Short tech question. Nice ledger S integration for SSH :). How long is the ledger S usable for auth after having entered the pincode? Until you unplug the Ledger. You can also have an additional password set. It's better than the yubikey's in that regard.

    NK03 Could you provide some insight in any firewalling you are applying? On of the really few things I missed (or overlooked) in your application. We use iptables, to DROP packets for unused ports. SSH Access is moved to a non-standard port (and a different IP address where we are using...

    NK02 Like mentioned by fellow guides, you list some projects that are big endeavours Given your projections are based on node income, how would you provide accountability for the projects you are running to the standing parties?

    NK01: Could you elaborate why you mostly rely on node income to fund your development and desire for more than 2 nodes? You mention grants in your application for some projects. Have you considered a more substantial role in your financials for grants? In short, yes; we’ve always intended for...

    DC Question D: We would like to make it clear that with 1 server our capacity to do internal development work may be limited at lower Factoid prices; even with efficiency set at 25%, some team members may be part-time. Internal development will continue under any price scenarios, though the...

    TFA - The Factoid Authority

    We believe some of those projects in question are crucial to the adoption of Factom and should be developed sooner rather than later. Possessing Factom core experience, we believe we are among few entities who possess the knowledge to execute them in their entirety; To quote Paul Snow, “I will...

    TFA - The Factoid Authority

    A. We understand that initially there will not be a possibility to run more than 2 servers, but if the Authority Set deployments for a time opens up for hosting more than 2 we'll be pursuing up to 5 for a limited amount of time (in a longer time perspective we expect this to go down to 1). B...
