9/ 5/2020 Blockchain Study Group With BrightID


 Passcode: &sYx34L#

We had Adam Stallard and Alireza Paslar from BrightID helping us. Looks highly probable we will us BrightID as key part of member identification, and perhaps access control.

I think a few of might be buying their sponsorship discount package mentioned in our discussion. It would cover a number of BrightID users to get us started.
Chris Manfre is going to attempt a flow diagram linking Mighty Networks platform, BrightID, DAO software, etc
Jim Medalie and Ron Henderson were also there, as was Ed Yarrish.
We will see if Ori Shamony from D-Org might join us next week. We also seem to be closing in on Aragon for our first DAO software.
Jim is doing a lot of probing with the available Aragon modules.
Ron is focusing energy on Mighty Networks and how we can use it to onboard new members.

This video is from our August 29, 2020 blockchain study group discussion of a draft operating agreement that would be part of our incorporation in Vermont as a blockchain based limited liability corporation.
A draft operating agreement was prepared by Jim Medalie based on the D-org consulting firm’s incorporation as a BB LLC. Their agreement is publicly available on GitHub. 
Jim’s draft was also based on Ray Gallon’s earlier work of summarizing our ongoing discussion about organizational design, as a peer-to-peer network organization on the etherium blockchain.
Chris Manfre made major contributions to the discussion, and the draft, to clarify definitions. Ron Henderson has written a draft membership agreement that he is sharing with the group, and has been focused on the onboarding process for new members using the YARcce Mighty Networks platform that we are starting to populate.
After additional work, this document will be brought to our next session with the attorneys from Gravel and Shea in September.

BrightID in 2 minutes – YouTube


The Saturday morning blockchain study group met with representatives of BrightID on July 18th 2020.
We are looking to use the BrightID system to uniquely identify YARcce.com members and to map the network of connections among members in a visual format.
You can learn more about BrightID at their website 


The study group cluster has installed the BrightID app on their cell phones, and connected using QR codes over Zoom to map the start of our YARcce.com network member identification system.

Hand Off

Amanda Tressler, who is growing the wiki at YARcce.com, is seen here getting a hand off from Ed Yarrish. 

Amanda was Ed’s yoga guru before the pandemic began. Now in addition to helping with the wiki she is involved in the discussions about the YARcce logo and potential crowdfunding strategies.

Jean Simonnet and Ed Yarrish met on Wednesday evening July 8th with Dr Guido Pez on the campus of Muhlenberg College, where Jean has been entrepreneur in residence since 2008.

They discussed Dr Pez’s research, and patent applications, to use a liquid organic hydrocarbon, DBT, to store hydrogen generated from renewable sources. And, then to run the DBT through a fuel cell and generate electricity. DBT essentially becomes a liquid battery that can store and transport electricity created by solar and wind.

Dr Pez retired as Chief Research Scientist at Air Products and Chemicals, and was American Chemical Society Chemist of the Year. He holds some 40 patents.
