Weekly Q&A with Dan Wasyluk (Blockchain Foundry)

  • BCF will attend a large trade show in December
  • Web marketplace isn’t out of the question at this stage, a proof of concept is possible, but it’s important to note that PoCs are largely dependent on customer interests.
  • New BCF website will launch within two weeks
  • The Syscoin Foundation has its board members. They are now looking into which country to legally locate it.
  • Syscoin can be used for many use cases BCF overall goal is to let pragmatism lead.
  • BCF are having internal discussions regarding a ‘Walletless Interface’; theoretically this would allow the user to login in with your username and password on a web interface and your wallet and version gets automatically upgraded with new features. So no complex upgrades anymore.
  • Upcoming next months will be the release of Pangolin and Indexer softwares, which will enable the community to build products faster and more efficiently. The Indexer will likely be open-source, Pangolin will most likely not be at this stage.
  • BCF are leveraging their partnership with Peer Mountain to implement KYC with, for example, identities and aliases. This would mean that when you sign in to sites like Binance, Poloniex etc. that require KYC, you don’t have to repeat the process for each site. This is blockchain-based, KYC’d identity authentication!
  • In the short term, regarding Pangolin, BCF are working to enable fiat to SYS/crypto directly from Pangolin, so that it can be used to pay for goods and services online. Then Pangolin (or, more broadly the authentication functionality it provides) is going to be developed for people to interact with B2B web-based blockchain products as a whole.
  • Regarding the partnership with English Forward, they are leaning towards an asset for their online language marketplace which, even aside from the millions of Syscoin transactions this will generate, creates a huge amount of brand awareness. They are an established company using an asset on the Syscoin protocol to reward and incentivize users which brings a lot of value for SYS.
  • BCF have a vision regarding improved supply chain and transparency for Whole Foods. Using Syscoin Platform gives conscious consumers 100% more transparency around those animal welfare ratings which they state in their stores. Currently we have one of our sales people working to get in touch with Whole Foods in order to be able to pitch for them.

Upcoming AMA with Bitcab

It will start at approximately 7am Sydney time on Sep 22, which is 2pm PDT (Sep 21). In order to give everyone the chance to ask questions, the team will continue until ~9pm Sydney time, which is well into early afternoon in Europe.
