What is the concept and the goals of the Threefold Commercial Grid Services project?

The goal of the Threefold Commercial Grid services project is to prove that the current state of the Threefold Grid is enough to start a commercial business.

The current TF technology stack is a good set of building blocks to create a service business on. While proving this by doing it we also create content that explains in steps how to use the technical building blocks and put it all together into a full fledged solution.

The benefits and purposes of this project are manyfold:

  • Showcase that the grid stability and functionality is good enough to do this
    • Ex: Zonaris trailblazing this independently
  • Allow anyone to build easily
    • Using created documentation and training material
  • Inspire the existing community
  • Start experimenting with the Grid functionality.
  • Attract non technical users who pay FIAT.
  • Use FIAT to fund and reward Community contribution
    • Documentation updates, weblet improvements, outreach, teaching, etc.
