Summary of Q&A with Dan Wasyluk
Q: Hi Dan, what can you tell us about the new roadmap?
A: New roadmap is still percolating but I think its going to start with some kind of distributed data storage layer supported by masternodes and standard users alike. Storage will be rooted to the blockchain for proofing, and you can run services that integrate with data on the storage layer. We are envisioning the first service as an identity service backed by a Syscoin DID; the idea from there would be to expand to a marketplace service that leverages those DIDs and build a rep/feedback system on top of them as well and then maybe certificates... but we haven't talked it out that far on the cert side - the key component is really the distributed storage thats off-chain but still incentivized by the base token, and rooted in the base chain. A big goal is to be able to submit storage requests "to the network" rather than "to an IP".
Q: How is the Bridge going?
A: It's going well, there was one last issue that came up but I think Jag has a solution that will work in a way that doesnt blow up timelines. I'm going to be talking about the bridge a bit tomorrow when i do the Greek meetup.
Q: Hey dan, after I read Seb left BCF I was a bit worried to be honest. Do I have to worry about BCF?
A: Nah nothing to worry about, we split on good terms. Seb and I are still buddies.
Q: Hey Dan, any update on the Archos wallet?
A: We have production devices we're testing! Will be speaking with them next week on next steps.
