J: “Regarding two previous published old-school “roadmaps” for Syscoin.
One of them was a “macro” timeline with various 2018 objectives (5 of them) and the other one was a scorecard with something like 90,000 different items on a checklist. So the story with these here is (un?)fortunately not too dramatic or salacious. For the macro timeline - several of these objectives are in active R&D (when I say active R&D I mean that people at the company are working on these as we speak.). I’m not comfortable stating myself that all of those items would see the light of day in a production capacity this year at this point (there are still a lot of things in very active discussion, as Danno alluded to in his Q&As) but please know they are being looked at. Well, with the exception of “Blockmarket Professional”, but that is largely a white-labelling exercise for BMD (and not actually Syscoin-specific) that we may come back to at a later date (3.2 is being set up to handle this architecturally). So as for the 90K item checklist. Apparently this workspace has now reached the free plan storage limit - tough Slack! You’ll take my upload and like it!”
J: “In retrospect we likely should’ve segmented this into a couple of different checklists so that we didn’t have more specific BMW things (like sharing links on social media) in here. That being said, speaking through most of this list they fit into one of a few categories:
Concepts that were under investigation (video proofs) vs. things that were planned for a hard implementation. Things that actually didn’t have *anything* to do with a technical todo list and probably ended up on this diagram by mistake. This includes items like multilanguage forums (which incidentally were considered to be way too much work ATM for the ROI they’d produce) and promotional videos. Most of the Syscoin platform specific functionalities that are listed on this roadmap are present in the chain. Some of them are more fleshed out (assets) than others (witnesses,arbiters) but they do exist. As for much of the other items here, as they are very specifically tied to BMW you’d likely see them when you see BMW I would assume/imagine that at a juncture where BMW became a current BCF initiative you’d likely see an updated feature list/roadmap culled from our JIRA”.
J:”And into “how are we solving problems for a vast majority of people? How are we getting people into this space and keeping them there?”
It’s my firm belief that if SYS is easier to use than any other crypto (and its applications are easier to use than any other crypto) then SYS will be the future. Both Dan and Seb come from some portion of UX/UI background, for example. Some of the group currently at BCF does as well, so there is that…I’ll call it “comfortable wrestling” between cool functionalities and “all right, does this change anyone’s lives?”
