Technical Update: On Factoids

Tech Update Factoids

We are fast approaching a candidate for the Beta. This past week of testing has gone swimmingly. The Factom system is passing nearly 200 tests and growing everyday. Thanks in part to over a dozen community testers! If you would like to join our efforts, get a hold of Brian.

The new Factom token “Factoid” has been performing well during testing along with its command line wallet. Having a robust token will be key to the Beta release. After considering using other code bases, Paul Snow implemented a custom design for the token. Since Factom is completely new to the world, it required some original thinking for the subsystems as well.

There was a great internal debate over what we would call the Factom token but we landed on Factoid and Factoshi as its smallest divisible unit. To honor Grandpa Bitcoin (Paul Snow), the team has created a coin depicting his image. Being the humble man he is, he was less than thrilled with our exuberance.
