Radix Ways of Communicating

11th February 2020

Decentralized ledger protocols, be it Blockchain, DAGs or whatever form they take, are created to allow participation and sharing of value. Open source and the community around the technology forms a critical piece of a public ledger’s anti-fragility. We want to take this technological innovation to bring anyone, anywhere, friction-free access to the digital economy. A network that is truly for anyone cannot come to fruition without openness and cooperation between all parties interested in getting to a fully open network. At Radix, we value this vision – we want everyone to be on board of this journey. 

We’re determined to share each piece of research we have conducted, the problems of each approach and why have we decided on a particular route forward. Radix will not only be open-sourcing all the code that is being worked on but also encourage external users to test the system and code as early and often as we can. The Radix team is committed to creating a scalable and secure public network. All of our actions will be performed and shared with that singular focus in mind.

How will we do this?

  • Open-source by default – we will be opening up our GitHub and sharing every new repo with the community 
  • Being humble – we don’t know all the answers and we’ll let you know when we don’t know
  • There are no stupid questions – ask anytime something is unclear
  • We will regularly engage with the community via our channels, answering your questions big or small
  • We are here to listen – we won’t always agree with you and won’t always be able to act on ideas, but we will always explain our thinking when we don’t.
  • We get there together or not at all – we’re not able to think of everything – this revolution is as much yours as it is ours and every bit of help is needed for it to be successful
  • Sharing is caring – we will provide regular updates, summarizing what we’ve done, and what needs further thought
  • Sharing our open technical questions – not every question will have a simple and straightforward answer – some of our goals will require researching multiple paths
  • Looking back to move forward – we will explain our research, the shortcomings of previous iterations (as well as the parts of them that are still valid)
  • Explaining uncertainty – all timelines come with uncertainty and risk levels. When we share dates and timelines with you we will make sure to explain where the uncertainties are and what the risks to the timeline might be
