    Proposal: Objective ANO Performance Metrics and Efficiency Guidelines

    Thanks for the proposal. I like the idea of more objectiveness to assess ANOs and I think you've highlighted some good criteria. I agree with Tor, practically the best way forward is to tie it into the ANO expectation document. Collecting the data is an interesting problem - but for example...

    Hi Matthias, Thank you for the requested info, that's really great to see and I finally got to put my 4th form French into practice. :giggle:

    Question for The Factoid Authority from David Chapman

    Thank you for the question, David. Without trying to overstate our importance or over-promise anything, we can quite honestly say that if we left the ecosystem right now it would materially impact Factom’s chance of success. To validate our answer, we point to the grant work we’re doing with the...

    Funded [Factomatic-2] Kambani Extension Backpay

    I agree that these are absolutely the kind of grants that should be funded. Essentially zero risk and demonstrably valuable.

    ANO Standing System Beta Testing

    I have amended support after Tor's initial vote. Seems to have worked well

    ANO Standing System Beta Testing

    That screenshot above came from clicking on the Standing %. Unless I'm missing something? When I say tally I mean more like a table containing two columns - "support" and "no support" - with the ANOs populating them as chips so ANOs can quickly assess which ANOs support or don't support

    ANO Standing System Beta Testing

    Suggestion - How about a tally of which ANOs support and which don't added to this screen under the first div/card

    Process Discussion New Exchange committee formation

    Thanks Niels. I have not been an active member for a while, especially since a third party was engaged. I won't be seeking to join the new committee.

    Should ANOs go down to one server?

    I echo many points already raised here. IMO In order to turn this ship around, we need to: 1. Manage protocol spending (inflation) way more effectively a. Remove or redistribute rewards from ineffective ANOs b. Only fund grants that directly lead to 2. or are critical in maintaining...

    Unawarded Development of a PegNet/Factom/FAT Mobile Wallet Android/iOS

    @Sergey Bushnyak Thanks for the explanation. I think I would be more excited personally if the focus was to get a "trading app" going for PegNet, rather than a mobile wallet at this point. But I can still see value in having access to conversions on mobile.

    Unawarded Development of a PegNet/Factom/FAT Mobile Wallet Android/iOS

    Hi Jason, Thanks for the proposal. I'm happy to see an initiative for providing PegNet some usability and I like the idea of a one-stop shop. What I'm not so sure about is PegNet on mobile. IMO for PegNet to attract traders the wallet should be desktop-friendly primarily. Traders generally...

    Process Discussion New ANO election/demotion process

    TFA is in support of this proposal. This is the first step towards realizing the original intent of liquid operators as written in governance. Of course, it would be preferable to have a wider voting set, but we can’t afford to wait for that. The survival of this protocol is dependent on...
