EXPANSE NEWSLETTER 11/15/2016 Polling Results and the Proposal Module
Welcome to the fourteenth edition of the Expanse Newsletter! This publication is a bi-monthly Newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share the news with our community. Keep in mind that breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.
NEWS THAT IS HAPPENING NOW
To start off, we are excited to announce that the Expanse Polling Dapp was a huge success! So many people were voting near the end that it even functioned as a solid stress test of the Expanse network, with around 20k transactions happening rapidly. Everything worked without a hitch, providing valuable data to the team and some exposure of Expanse to the mainstream. As the identity system is still being developed and the poll was open to everyone, it seems likely that some Hillary Clinton supporters were more active in sharing the poll. Like the polls in the actual presidential election, they skewed towards Hillary Clinton despite her ultimate loss.
Over 9000 votes were registered on the Expanse Blockchain for Hillary Clinton, 4423 votes for Donald Trump, and interestingly, Jill Stein beat out Gary Johnson in the poll. It’s safe to say for those in the Libertarian party following the election, the choice of Bill Weld may have had some impact on the low number of votes for Gary Johnson. So this made for a very successful test of the voting module, and we are ahead of schedule now on the Roadmap. Several other DAO modules are partially complete already, and there will be more opportunities for the community to try out and test them over the next weeks.
The proposal module will be the next one to come out, and we will be reaching another milestone very soon. The GUI for the Proposal module is being completed now and is likely to be ready in time for the next Newsletter. This module has been discussed previously, and we are very excited about it. Publicly it is known as EXP.LIFE. It allows expanse users to create proposals or “quests” for other users to complete. This can also be used for crowd funding with Expanse and a variety of other applications. The Expanse DAO will use this module to create and fund proposals for the community. So this will bring us closer to completing another major milestone while also giving the community lots of new utility with Expanse.
In other news, Borderless was approved for its charity operations in the state of North Carolina.
Note: “Gamification” will not be included in the next module, but will be coming shortly thereafter.

Expanse official DAO reserve is still at 10 million and in cold storage, untouched. This will not be used at all until the DAO is implemented, and then by design, only a small amount at a time can be voted to fund various elements of development. The team reserve is at 214583 and is planned to be used to fund development until the Expanse DAO is live in the next few months.
