Harmony 2019 Q4 Planning

Stephen Tse
Oct 25, 2019 · 4 min read

Harmony’s vision is “Open Consensus for 10B” (see harmony.one/story).

Toward a fully open development and platform, we publish our quarterly planning publicly here as harmony.one/plan. We follow Google’s OKRs.

We believe activity < productivity < impact < value < meaning.

Here are our main goals this quarter:

  • $10k transaction fees: stablecoin, animoca game, porting dai
  • $10m ONE staked: delegation, 3 pools (binance, blockdamon, staked.us), 10 wallets
  • 100% uptime: 40% external, $50k machine cost, 2-hour deploy
  • 10 hires: 3 eng, 1 biz, 3 interns, china (2 eng, 1 biz)

We wear our ambitions on our sleeves. But these goals are not guaranteed deliverables.
