Project Description
Factom Interim Director remuneration. This is the grant for the work I have done as Factom Interim Director for 8,5 months.

The 3 big outcomes /deliverables:
  • Analysis of Factom 1.0, strategy and vision
  • Factom 2.0 proposal
  • Move to Accumulate to get the best of the goals and objectives mentioned in this grant.


Problem Statement
Remuneration for the Factom Interim Director position for the period of March 7th 2021 till November 21st 2021. See goals and objectives below.

Goals and Objectives
Maximize chances of success for the protocol:
  • Ensure financials are in order for good times, but more importantly so survive bad times, as we know eventual bear cycles will follow again
  • Ensure the work done by a diverse set of actors is as aligned as possible
  • Ensure the protocol has a clear road ahead. Meaning the vision and strategy is hashed out with plans in place to act on those. You should always be able to (and actually do) ask yourself the question on decisions whether it fits strategy
  • Ensure the protocol will be handed over to new leadership in more calm waters. It makes sense that we will prepare for a non-profit to take its place in the protocol, obviously with the standing parties having control over that entity
  • Ensure the protocol becomes interesting again to invest in. By token holders but just as importantly by individual developers/integrators/companies using the protocol

Success Criteria
See goals and objectives. After presenting the problem definition, as well as the proposal for Factom 2.0, and seeking investors, I started discussions with the people behind Accumulate.

The unanimous vote in favor of rebranding and forking into Accumulate is the ultimate best outcome for all involved, aligning with the above.
The potential investors initially for Factom 2.0 have been brought into contact with Inveniam/Defidevs. Although I cannot disclose anything about the outcome given its nature, there still are ongoing discussions and the outcome seems positive on multiple angles.

Budget
I am using the historical relatively high price last 2 years of $2.07, which is the price at the start of the period. Obviously I am not asking for 8,5 months against the mentioned monthly rates.

In total the remuneration I ask for is 8000 FCT, which at todays price is roughly 7500 dollars. I believe this to be a very fair price for the work I have done

Assumed Price Per FCT
