October update

  • As part of our ongoing work for the on-chain voting grant:
    1. We finished the full implementation of the voting protocol in JavaScript. The library is open-source. It will be in particular integrated in MyFactomWallet voting UI.
    2. We created a CLI tool to create a vote, participate in a vote and retrieve the details and results of a vote. Currently in beta but fully functional.
    3. We reviewed MyFactomWallet website before it got released to the community.
  • We have been invited to join the ambitious Factom Asset Token project┬álead by DBGrow and in collaboration with Canonical Ledgers and LayerTech.

    “FAT is an open source tokenization protocol built on the Factom blockchain that is efficient, modular, composable, and extensible allowing developers to layer token functionality to meet their specific use case. FAT is built around a set of open source standards that establish a pure-data tokenization implementation directly within the efficient entry chain structure of the Factom blockchain.”

    Paul (@luap) became an Editor of the project and has started contributing to specifications together with other Editors. A grant to fund the work on this project has been submitted, please have a look and feel free to give your feedback in the forum thread.

  • We are really proud to say that we became the first non-Factom Inc. contributor to the Factom software! We are happy and grateful that Factom Inc managed to unlock the situation regarding external contributions. The code change in question is about adding CORS settings to factomd and is visible in this pull request. This new feature will be available as part of the next release of factomd.
  • In line with the above, we also jumped on the opportunity to propose a fix for a bug present in walletd. The contribution was accepted and merged, it will be part of the next release.
