OriginTrail Community Monthly Report #1: January 2018

After successfully concluding the Token Sale on January 17th, OriginTrail is running full speed ahead passing the first month milestone. Since this is our first monthly report, we are presenting the reporting system for the future, as well as monthly highlights, including but not limited to the OriginTrail roadmap.

OriginTrail is a project embedded with trust and traceability, thus we want to extend this to the community stakeholders as well. We are fully aware that different community members are interested in different messages and reports, that is why we have selected a set of various KPIs that we will follow throughout the project and report them in certain time periods.

The topics we will closely monitor will be:

Protocol development

  1. Trace token status
  2. Business development
  3. HR
  4. Marketing & PR

Through our reports you will be able to see how the project is progressing in different areas and gain relevant insight into project development. All other milestones, news, and announcements will be published in the same manner as today through different blog posts and other communication channels.

Meet 2 Types of Reporting: Monthly and Quarterly

As we want to provide official information about the project on a regular basis, we will be conducting two different reporting schemes.

Community reporting will include information about the achieved milestones, roadmap information, and one-time events. Reporting will be done on a monthly basis in short medium posts, going out by the 7th of every month. All the information published in these reports will be official and will give the community and other stakeholders an insight into how OriginTrail project is evolving.

Contributor reporting will be done on a quarterly basis, with the first report going out in April. It will present a deeper overview of the OriginTrail project. The report will include information about financials, business, Trace token, HR, and marketing & PR.

In addition to the monthly reports, we will be issuing announcements as they occur. Never miss an update, subscribe to our newsletter or follow our Announcement Channel on Telegram.

OriginTrail Community Report (January 2018)

The most important achievement in January 2018 was the successful TGE (token generation event), which we finished on Jan 17th, at 15.18 UTC. This milestone secured the necessary funds to develop what was promised in our whitepaper and roadmap.

Here are the main developments and announcements.
