Kompendium Community Update – November 2019

This is Kompendium’s November Community Update (covering activity in October)

Improvements

Infrastructure: We continue to work through internal infrastructure improvements with the implementation of NextCloud and a number of other service s- the process will likely be enduring as we grow and mature as an organization.

Advocacy: We drafted an article to announce the development of our JSON-rpc Libraries. We intend to coordinate with the marketing committee to ensure the value of these fantastic new client libraries are maximized for community benefit and we can attract as many new developer communities as possible to the Factom ecosystem. 

Personnel/Business Relationships: We continue to aggressively seek out and identify additional talent to expand our team.  We further developed two business relationships that will allow Kompendium to significantly expand our capacity to take on greater numbers of projects and more complex initiatives.

Testnet: We celebrated the release of the revitalized testnet governance document– thank you for the efforts put into ensuring the testnet remains an integral part of our community.

Initiatives

PegNetWe continue to run dozens of PegNet miners.  We have been busy researching and refining our grant proposal to develop a cross-platform, multi-token PegNet/Factom/FAT mobile wallet solution. We hope the community is as excited as we are about this project, and the positive impact we assess it will have for the ecosystem.

Development of Factom Client Libraries-Backpay Grant: We have been working fervently to finalize four new JSON-rpc client libraries for the Factom protocol.  We aim to release these libraries prior to the conclusion of the fourth quarter grant round starting on 04 November.  These powerful new clients are for PHP, Swift, Ruby, and Haskell, and we believe these libraries will open the door to a far greater number of very active developer communities, and make the Factom protocol more accessible than ever before. We also believe this work is foundational in providing the tools to grow the community and expand its use and application. Note: once finished, Kompendium will have built five of the community’s ten rpc client libraries for the protocol!

Quarter three, 2019, Grant – Rust Client Library: We decided to pause the public release of the Rust client library—likely early to mid-November—to await the Rust Community’s 1.39 release, which is expected on 07 November. Announcement Link: https://blog.rust-lang.org/2019/09/30/Async-await-hits-beta.html While we recognize the importance of meeting the pledged grant timeline, we decided a short delay would ultimately be to the community’s benefit to ensure we provide a stable and optimized library for the latest Rust release.

A note: while the market value of FCT has recently contracted significantly to 52wk lows, we at Kompendium continue to aggressively develop and plan significant projects to expand the attractiveness and functionality of the Factom protocol. We are very excited about the direction of the Factom protocol and are eager to refine our proposals and begin work on some of our ideas that we hope will propel Factom to new heights.
