Tagion held an Ask Me Anything (AMA) event on 8 October 2020 via Telegram Chat. As with our 2019 event, which you can read about here, we covered a lot of ground concerning the Tagion project and the current state of Decentralized Finance. This year, though, we focused more on the nuts and bolts of how Tagion will operate and some of the changes we have made since last year’s AMA.
One big change that came to light was that the Tagion community consensus that the project move from a Proof of Person paradigm to one with two basic sets of scoring attributes: stateful and stateless attributes.
Know Your Customer (KYC) concerns were also prominent, and Tagion’s way of threading the needle between privacy and regulation. Tagion CTO Carsten Rasmussen noted that the network itself will not have any KYC features built in, and that Name Records and wallets can be created without names.
Tagion’s funding came up, and Tagion CCO Kristain Vestergaard pointed out that until February, the project had been completely self-funded, and elaborated a few ways in which the community can get involved to support the project. Moreover, he reiterated that an ICO is not in the cards.
Furthermore, Tagion CSO Roxana Nasoi mentioned that there are plans to launch “a localised Country Representative program which we expect to launch over the summer next year, when we have a more mature product line.” At the moment, she sees Tagion gaining developer interest through a Hackathon.
Other topics included sneak peeks at new Tagion offerings and (Wallet) App UI, marketing, and use cases. Tagion CEO Theis Simonsen noted in a response regarding Tagion’s development map and the horizon looking out over years, that “we’re in it for the long haul.”
