Problem with your node I think and by my opinnion is that it is only you. You need at least one partner in case of emergency if something happens and you cant be online. That is serious problem also with many other similar projects around. Some automated multisig system like multigateway.org would be superb behind it, but it still would need more people behind it for case of emergency. Just my 2 FIMKs.
Thanks for pointing this out. I have been thinking this over myself how to resolve it. I'm glad someone else saw it too.
I am open to trying to setup something that would allow someone to step in an emergency. Here are my thoughts as I've contemplated this...
-- Yes, it is just me, one person. A single point of failure that could derail the whole thing. Though, an exchange could really be the same thing, one or two guys. If that happens, everyone loses everything. IMO, doesn't seem that different to me.
-- We are a relatively small community, in the beginning, you are going to have small numbers of people doing things. That is where trust comes in. I wanted to make that very clear and said so in my OpenLedger thread. I guess one option would be to provide someone with copy of the FIM and OpenLedger account keys. This would give them full access to initiate transactions on both systems. Both the community and I would need to trust that person/party.
-- If my understanding of mutli sig features is correct, it would require that all parties sign off on transactions. I would think that would potentially slow down transaction processing. In addition, if one party "disappears" then nothing can happen either. Maybe I am wrong. If so, someone please correct me.
-- In regards to MultiGateway, I'm providing the same service to the OpenLedger trading platform. I don't have setup a multi sig account to hold FIM (can that be even done) or the OpenLedger account that issues FIMKRYPTO.
-- If people really want to use the service, I'd automate the process. I don't want to have to be constantly watching accounts to look for transactions. I could give someone access to the service, but again, it would give them access to the keys.
Please feel free to add to my mental ramblings....
