  • The goal of this project is to provide accurate, well written, complete profiles for all public figures in the field of blockchain technology.
  • Each profile consists of a number of fields
  • The file contains a list of these fields. The very first line is the person's name. After that, the information goes below the headers (marked by the line with two hashmarks)
  • To suggest a profile, open an issue here at GitHub with the person's name
  • To create a new profile of someone listed in in Profile Candidates section at the bottom of this README:
    • Pick a name. Create a new file in the ondeck folder with the name and begin work on that profile. personname should be that person's full name, all lowercase, no spaces, and convert any non-ascii characters to the closest ascii equivalent you can find.
    • Copy the text from into this new file
    • Fill in as many of the fields as you can. Note the Sources field at the bottom (use - + space to make bullet points). Make sure to include any URL's you have used for information about the person. Also, note the Tags field. Create tags for the technologies and projects this person has worked on. Make sure the final tag ends with a , and please include the person's primary location if you are able to find that.
    • The main Bio field should be about 250 words long (approx. three or four nice parragraphs).
    • The Summary field should be two sentences.
    • Please do not mark more than one file as at once.
    • Remove any fields you are leaving blank.
    • Once done with the profile, change the filename to end with and "commit" the changes.
    • Profiles maked _inprocess for more than a day may be taken over by someone else.
  • To edit an existing profile to make a correction or add information:
    • Edit the profile
    • Submit a pull request

Some additional style notes:

  • Writing style: should be fairly formal, fact-based and as precise as possible. Avoid overly-long sentences or paragraphs. Try not to use qualifying adjectives (e.g. influential, foremost, successful) or non-neutral nouns (e.g. expert)
  • Abbreviations: introduce the full term followed by the abbreviation in brackets the first time an abbreviation is used e.g. Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO)
  • Capitalisation: Don't capitalise: names of digital currencies. Do capitalise company names, job titles (but not 'founder'), degree subjects and types (Bachelor's and Masters)
