Straightedge is a zero-day fork of the Edgeware blockchain supporting the vision of a self-improving smart contract blockchain.
The fork will launch with an alternative genesis token distribution, aiming to meaningfully involve a diverse and distributed set of participants.
Straightedge will launch concurrently with Edgeware on 15 Sep 2019, with equivalent features and alternative 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 will be solely based on ETH locked via Edgeware's lockdrop contract. There will be 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 will be available to users at network launch - the same as for funds allocated based on locks.
Straightedge is being launched by individuals from a communities across the Blockchain space. We believe that empowering the community to drive the governance from the outset is crucial to engagement.
To be automatically included in the Straightedge genesis distribution, you will need to participate in the Edgeware lockdrop, using a lock or signal from a wallet address.
