You have all been waiting very patiently so thank you for that. I'll be making a special appearance in light of recent events to get things started.
I have spent many hours researching and thinking about the best way to go about repopulating the WDC team. I finally settled on a service with beta end-to-end encrypted messaging rooms called Riot made by a company called Matrix.
Why is Matrix a good option for WDC?
Supports multiple OS
E2E by default if enabled in room. (Beta)
API could be connected to WDC services
Email on sign up not required
There will be 5 phases of recruitment, we will be entering Phase 1 which will begin with the population of the Worldcoin Lounge Tier 0.
Tier 0 = Worldcoin Lounge
Tier 1 = Worldcoin Discussion or Worldcoin Dev Discussion.
To progress into Tier 1, Phase 1 recruiters will evaluate from the lounge who should be included. This is to ensure group chat is productive, stays on topic with sensitive data protected.
How can I join Riot?
You will be applying to join the Worldcoin Lounge which is Tier 0 and for casual chat.
We currently have the following Phase I recruiters:
alferz:matrix.org (DEV APPLICANTS ONLY)
Sign up, choose the respective app for your device by visiting this page. After creating your user, log out and back in to refresh account creation
Start chat with one of the recruiters using their above usernames on Riot, please edit room settings and enable room encryption when discussing 1 to 1 to protect your data.
Continue to tell the recruiter how you can contribute to WDC (Skills, background etc), this is an application, without it you will not be accepted into the group chat. They will ask you a series of questions to see what rooms you could potentially belong in.
Send your Riot verification ID via forum PM to verify your identity.
My Matrix ID is @accept:matrix.org, do not trust anyone claiming to be me if the ID doesn’t match.
If you think you've got what it takes to be a recruiter, please comment on this thread for consideration.
