The Great Migration

We will begin migrating the Factom Genesis network to the new Factom Federation network starting tomorrow, December 31th. The system is likely to experience some slowdowns over the next few days. Paul and Mahesh are ready with the duct tape and WD40 in case the network sputters and comes to a temporary halt (a possible scenario).

We will be deploying eight federated servers and eight audit servers to the Federation network. This migration will usher in an era of censorship-resistant and global distribution.

We are really excited about this upgrade.Once complete, we can start introducing all the new features and tools.

If you are utilizing the Factom Genesis Network, it’s time to update your software. Check out our new and improved documentation. Please send any feedback or support requests to support@factom.com  

Thanks for being an awesome and supportive community,

The Factom Team

It has been a week since we kicked off the first hackathon exclusively hosted by Factom and we couldn’t be more proud of how it went. We learned a lot, we lost sleep and we spent this last week in retrospection. With over 100 attendees, we spotted some very bright, enthusiastic, and passionate developers who came to conquer paper.
