Problem Statement
  • Wallets
  • Factom On-Chain Voting
  • Factom Open API
  • Accounting scripts fetching transactions through factomd
  • Providing developers access to a stable factomd-API
MyFactomWallet and Factom Enterprise Wallet is now operational on the Factom Open Node system.

Open Node is being used by Flipside Crypto to parse the Factom blockchain enabling them to re-evaluate their Factom FCAS-score presented on CoinMarketCap.

Open Node is being used as default Factomd-node in Factom Open API.

So far the Open Node system has experienced no downtime (except pauses on Factom network), continuously providing a functional endpoint to all users.

  • Provide factomd API access for the Factom community and external entities
  • The service provided shall be:
  • Stable
  • Redundant
  • Have low response time
  • 24/7 support and maintenance by our working group consisting of the grantees.
  • 24/7 monitoring of the node status with public facing component and internal alerts if action is required.

Success Criteria
Provide factomd-nodes with API access
Provide cloud load balancer
Monitoring system online
Status website online
Continuous operations
