The FIO Roadmap

FIO’s vision is to operate as a transparent, community-run DAC (Decentralized Autonomous Consortium) in which token holders have influence over the future of the FIO protocol.

The FIO roadmap is managed by the FIO foundation  but the content of the roadmap is driven by the community (users, block producers, foundation members) by way of FIO Improvements Proposals (FIPs). The FIPS live in GitHub.

You can influance the roadmap by being an active member of the community and participating in the discussions on Telegram  and Twitter.


Block Producers

What is a Block Producer?
Block producers run the infrastructure necessary to run the FIO blockhain, and play a major role in the governance of the chain. Those holding FIO Tokens choose the block producers through vote.

Who are the Block Producers?
Anybody can register to be a block producer (BP) and produce blocks if they receive enough votes. The top 21 active BPs and up to 21 stand-by BPs will be paid – the pool of the 42 total BPs are determine by number of vote. You can view the currenct Block Producer list here.

What makes FIO different?

Similar to other crypto-naming projects FIO supports sending and receiving crypto but FIO can seamlessly support ANY blockchan.

FIO also enables your ability to request payments, this is critical when incorporating crypto-payments in to your businuss processes. Sending an invoice (payment request) is native to the protocol and integration is easy and FIO  metadata can be attached to any transaction on any blockchain.
