Straightedge is a zero-day fork of the Edgeware blockchain supporting the vision of a self-improving smart contract blockchain.
The fork launched with the same software and refined genesis token distribution, aiming to meaningfully involve a permissionless and distributed set of participants.
Straightedge launched concurrently with Edgeware on 15 Sep 2019, with equivalent features and different genesis token distribution.
We believe that only allowing signals from wallets (not from contracts) reduces edge cases and results in a distribution more likely to engage a diverse set of individuals, instead of institutions or groups.Learn More
The distribution for locks was solely based on ETH locked via Edgeware's lockdrop contract. There was and is no opportunity to appeal, making the distribution fully transparent and algorithmic.Learn More
In order to avoid creating different classes of users, funds allocated based on signals are available to users from network launch - the same as for funds allocated based on locks.
Straightedge was launched by individuals from communities across the Blockchain space. We believe that empowering the community to drive the governance from the outset is crucial to engagement.
You were automatically included in the Straightedge genesis distribution if you locked or signalled from a wallet address in Edgeware's lockdrop.
