Product Issue 26 — UNN Roadmap Revisions

UNION launched in December of 2020. At the time, we had little idea of the excitement and challenges that would come ahead. We posted a roadmap for the project, which you can read here. Fast forward, we’ve launched code to production, found a vibrant community, and directed our calling in the risk management and protection space. Along the way, some things have changed. The community has asked us for a modified roadmap to say where we’re heading, and when we plan on getting there.

As we've mentioned in our AMAs and some of our posting on Telegram and Twitter, we are going to be focusing on our completed architectures for our collateral optimization (C-OP) and smart contract protection/UNION crypto default swaps (SCP/U-CDS), moving forward. We see other opportunities for additional products we initially contemplated, but, as we have identified deep demand for work along these two paths, we will continue to primarily focus on promotion and improvement of these two product sets and their associated capabilities.

Along the way, we've added additional functionality and utility to the protocol, including our rewards (rUNN) token, our integration path for cyber-physical finance, and our development of an internal cybersecurity and audit capability to keep our project and extended ecosystem safe. We have enlisted premier industry talent and world-class advisors to assist in our decisioning and operations. We've even found a spirit animal, our hUNNy Badger, who will become increasingly more integral to our platform going forward.

Our roadmap continues to reflect a balance between meeting the pressing market demand for a suite of complete protection products and providing a robust and well-tested solution. The below modified roadmap is our aspirational target for the next three quarters, and may be adjusted as we progress.
