About

 Proud to be a part of Kicking it Forward.

Risks and challenges

To solve the problem we wanted to solve, we had to tackle a lot of very complex pieces regarding Kube. We were able to succeed at solving the problems from a design and architectural level, and we can safely deliver Kube as a service to our backers within a very short timeframe.

Reaching the full potential of Kube though requires a lot of optimization, bug fixing, and then defensive coding models need to be put in place before we release the Kube Engine, for proper P2P decentralization (so users can run their own nodes off the network).
Our primary challenges revolve around resource management ensuring we can support our infrastructure, our engineers, our social goals, while moving towards a solid, fault tolerant network.

While we have a team experienced in management, business as well as technology, we also believe one way to mitigate these risks and challenges, is to put together a full open source plan, where in the event that it appears we cannot succeed in delivering on our promises (can no longer continue as a company), we will deliver all of the code, in its entirety to the community as a thank you for sharing the burden of risk with us.
