After being elected by the community several months ago the newly-elected foundation is happy to announce some progress that it has made recently. after several months of due diligence to determine what type of legal entity the foundation will become. We are happy to announce that we have hired on retainer legal council to set up the foundation as a completely legal entity. By becoming an official and legal, foundation, we will be able to effectively support, maintain and develop the CounterParty protocol as a whole.
The XCP Foundation would like to announce our first public meeting taking place on Sunday, February 9th at 12 NOON EST. During this meeting we will outline the state of things and follow up with a question and answer period. Afterwards, the foundation members will gather, aggregate, weigh, vet and otherwise process our collective options into realistic agency. It is important to remember that we are acting as representatives of the community. Therefore we are at a crucial stage that is just before gathering data from our first public meeting and then an extensive questionnaire to follow in order to determine the sentiment of anyone, not just those who are able to attend the meeting. A basic itinerary of the meeting will be shared ahead of time.
While we understand it’s been a rough year for CounterParty after the abrupt dissolution of the previous foundation. It’s taken a while for the community to regroup and find its new direction. We are confident and prepared to resume fostering the XCP protocol to increase its stability, userbase and overall protocol usage.
At this time, we are asking for the community’s support and encourage any type of questions or feedback regarding our newly elected board and it’s renewed direction. The foundation has set up an email account address specifically for you to share questions or concerns with us all directly at email@example.com or by replying in this post.
Glad to see some movement! I will be there!
Always here to help push things forward!
Hon. Larry Shelton
Good to see many good advances on Counterparty Platform.
It is nice to see the foundation moving forward.
A basic itinerary of the meeting will be shared ahead of time.
Where can we find the itinerary? I will not be able to participate in meeting live due to time difference, but I believe other participants should have sufficient time to read the itinerary and prepare the questions/comments.
Sorry for the delay. There will be an open Q&A period at the end for anything that attendees would like to address.
