    Factom Interoperability Specifications, request for comment

    Definitely needed for everyone's business. HashnStore supports this approach.

    Approved Grant [LAYERTECH-002] Core Code Development Grant Continuation

    I got access to this document which convinced me of Tom's core Dev work during these last 3 months. "Hacking Factom" material is one important public aspect of this work (and it is not fully complete). While I can understand everything can not be shared sometimes, updates on non-sensitive...

    Calculating available FCT in grant pool

    I agree with David. As long as the reference value is not a static value but a calculation method/a dynamic value, in my opinion there is no risk distributing the maximum available FCT in the pool. We could even show the real-time value and the forecast value with a disclaimer ("based on the...

    Approved Grant [SPHEREON-005] Factom® Badges

    Thank you for your answer Niels. Just one extra precision to be sure to understand: how do you link this DID with a "real world Identity", even in the case the organization disappeared? I guess through multiple credentials between the organization themselves(e.g. organization A recognizing as...

    Approved Grant [BIF-007] Identity, DID and signing FIPs

    Based on these last posts, it looks like a cooperation is possible to define a common standard. It would be a nice success for our community if the three parties involved could collaborate outside of this grant proposal! We all learn from past mistakes. The important part is to go forward. And...

    Approved Grant [BIF-007] Identity, DID and signing FIPs

    Thank you Sam. This balances quite well the situation. Hashnstore has asked the permission to access the did:factom standard doc. That is my point of view too but I guess the issue raised here is to work on a standard that has good chances to be recognized by external systems in order to save...

    We are on the same page Niels. Hope you understood that from my post. We just need to find the right dynamic between continuing developing on top of the existing standards and defining/migrating to new ones. Let us define them first before thinking about the migration.

    Approved Grant [BIF-007] Identity, DID and signing FIPs

    I am fine with this approach. I am pretty sure we will find an easy way and that most of the people will be updating their tools to the new common standards. This is will just take some time to emerge. The situation is annoying but not dramatic. We are quite at an early stage and the migration...

    Approved Grant [BIF-007] Identity, DID and signing FIPs

    While I agree with most of your post Valentin I just want to add that I still think we should not stop building on top of the existing standards as long as we can ensure there is a path to migrate these solutions to the future ones which I believe is possible in almost all cases (there are basic...

    Approved Grant [BIF-007] Identity, DID and signing FIPs

    I understand what you mean. There is no need for technical improvement at the protocol level for supporting DID which I think most of people agree with. Data structures in Factom are already a perfect fit for DIDs. Now, I think I can say that many people who develop tools based on these...

    Grant Update [BIF-Factomatic-001] Factom DIDs

    I think it could be an interesting feature to add. Happy to discuss this further.

    Unawarded Grant [FACTOM-GRANT-HASHNSTORE-001] Chrome Extension for Ledger Nano

    We have a service and a first partner which will directly interact with our APIs (integration and test phase currently) but we will extend our offer with the support of Ledger. Not necessary through a Chrome extension actually. But we decided to extend this feature to propose it to the community.

    Unawarded Grant [FACTOM-GRANT-HASHNSTORE-001] Chrome Extension for Ledger Nano

    We will be working with the Application Identity already used or which are going to be used by FAT, MFW, Ledger firmware and OpenAPI (to be very specific, this identity standard: https://github.com/FactomProject/FactomDocs/blob/master/ApplicationIdentity.md). We want to complete this ecosystem...

    So you confirm that you are in the position to be able to merge this 2 standards. Understand my point : how could you try to merge your standard with something you don't know yet? We have to be sure you are in capacity to do that. You cannot merge with someting you do not know. @PaulSnow @Brian...
