September 2019 Authority Node Operator Update

September was a month tantalizingly close to huge success in development.  The Xuan version of factomd was released to master, after passing testing on the testnet.  Deployment started on the mainnet, but some workarounds to maintain full capabilities ended up not working.  The release was pulled back in September. Later a pause on the network was successfully resolved after some quick diagnosis and bug fixing.  The next phase of development also began for factomd.

While this is a summary of September activities as an Authority Node Operator (ANO) of the Factom Protocol, you can find more technical details in the long form updates: 

There were two sponsor meetings in September.  One of them was recorded and published: https://youtu.be/sZepNTwkal0  The sponsors in attendance in September were Nolan Bauer, David Kuiper, Valentin Ganev, and Nikola Nikolov (both of Factomatic).

This is where we will be in the upcoming months, let us know if you want to connect: 

September was a busy month for the team as several were out at various conferences. Thank you to everyone involved in making the Factom protocol a success. We’re looking forward to a busy fall!
