    Funded [Exchange Working Group-3] Exchange Working Group Funds

    Yeah I totally get it, we all want more than we can afford - everyone has to choose. This is just my opinion and I appreciate the conversation, it doesn’t mean I’m right. I just see this choice a little differently. 1) I can approve ... A) 10 or so great investments that B) add near-, and...

    Funded [Exchange Working Group-3] Exchange Working Group Funds

    Pluto, you are obviously very passionate about this. I was considering recommending that this grant be reduced from 50k to 30k FCT to entice those of us on the fence not willing to place such risk on such a large single [aspirational] grant, but the grant proposal went in the other direction ...

    Funded [Exchange Working Group-3] Exchange Working Group Funds

    Thank you for the grant submission. Asking for 42% of the entire community pool is a big gamble, and with so many good grant proposals at a time when we really need new functions and features in and on the protocol potentially means a vote for this grant carries with it HUGE opportunity cost...

    Tools such as this are useful and can help us be better. The price appears reasonable - but I worry more about the possible need to regularly modify this tool to work on the mainnet and testnet as the protocol evolves? Coudl you speak breifly to maiantenace requriemetnsd you've epereinced since...

    Funded [Fillip H.-Alex-Factomize-1] Sale of the Factomize forum to the Factom Protocol and coding work.

    I was totally against this idea initially since the community funded significant parts of what became proprietary software, but the price appears practical. If this site becomes a community resources,I hope we can form a working group immediately and modify many of the features we are unhappy...

    Funded [Who-6] Core and General Development

    I do agree that you have accumulated tremendous knowledge of the protocol and done important work in the past for the community. However, I believe we are in a better place in regards to core dev at this time and given scarce resources I’m willing to assume more risk and prefer to de-emphasize...

    Unawarded [Colin Campbell-1] FIP 2 - Distributed network restart

    A fail-proof and reliable network restart mechanism is indeed critical. The current mechanism "...web frontend that allows a user to request a restart +a cron job that will pick up & execute the restart." might be a good place to start. How can we as the leaders and stewards of the network...

    Exchange Working Group Update

    1) Is this really the case; with the history here, I'd ask you to reconsider. I'm familiar with NDAs, but to not be able to mention which exchanges you are prioritizing seem too conservative and beyond any normal NDA. This what we've been told for years, let's get some names so people have an...
