Block Conex is a UK based entity and is excited to be part of the second round application process.
Thanks the Block Conex team.
Thanks the Block Conex team.
We don't have any formal relationships with any other ANO. In regard to Block Party, given the profile of the respective members of each group they have individually worked with each other in previous companies. Subsequently Block Party introduced members of Block Conex to Factom and they went from there. We operate in different parts of the VFX sector and understand the partners and solutions we are looking to bring to the market are substantially different and geared towards different parts of the overall VFX production pipeline.Hello Block Connex,
Do you guys have any relationship with Block Party or any other ANOs (current or prospective)? I believe Block Party is also in the VFX space and utilizes Sheridans for legal services. And as follow up question, how is your approach in the VFX space differ from Block Party? Any concern about stepping on each other's toes?
Hi Julian,Thank you for applying. A few questions I am asking all applicants,
- How many person-hours per week do you expect your team to devote to this ecosystem?
- How will these hours be distributed among your members?
- How will this be distributed among your ANO activities (open source project dev, proprietary project dev, protocol level technical involvement, governance involvement, marketing/promotion … )?
- Can you give a list of demonstrable metrics that the community could use say 6 months or a year from now if you are selected in this application to evaluate your ANO?
Hi @DChapman,Thank you for your application!
I'm having a hard time grasping how you'll utilize the Factom Protocol.
Can you please give me a high level walk through of how you'll be integrating Factom and what problem it will solve?
Thanks for the question. As you know we are taking a two pronged approach to this. First off is the operation of the ANs to which we have assembled a team with expertise from across the vfx sector. Secondly we are onbording partners to work with us and on the Factom protocol.You'll be developing a separate protocol for smart contracts that integrates with Factom? If so, can you provide the a general overview of the approach you will be taking?
How will Factom verify the skills of freelancers?
The core ANO team consists of two of the leading VFX Engineers globally together with key legal and commercial support. As such they have the expertise to run a successful enterprise AN. We would like our application to be assessed first and foremost on this aspect of the team. We are looking at multiple commercial partners of which Joust is one to help further the protocol and to assist in running applications on Factom which solve multiple use cases in VFX that we have identified. Joust is prepared to invest time and resources into exploring a smart contract protocol with Block Conex as required for its own platform. Through Joust, skills verification can be easily checked as vfx jobs are created and authenticated through the Joust platform. This can also be developed further into IP verification all through the Joust platform running over Factom. This is not an overnight solution but building on a solidly run AN we believe we have the resource and talent to make this work.The problem here is you're in essence asking us to trust that you and Joust have the knowledge of Factom and technical skills necessary to execute upon your very generalized idea without providing any proof.
Until you can provide a rough outline of how your "smart contract protocol" will work and integrate with Factom and publicly explain the mechanism by which Factom can verify the skills of freelancers, I will remain unconvinced of the value of your offering.
How are you going to make sure the above data is safe on a public blockchain?3. We would store structured data for freelancer profiles such as usernames, employment records, skills, certifications, and timesheet entries.
how would a smart contract work on the factom blockchain?
