First of all congrats on the quick pre-sale.
Secondly, I haven’t introduced myself in the “Validators Intro” group yet, due to currently working on obtaining the notary public license. I have been watching Oracles progress for a while now and very much interested in the technical aspect of it and the huge potential of the PoA in general.
Last, but not least. While choosing licensed notaries as the validators is a very smart approach, the legal/security/bug question is, how do/would you verify those individuals and confirm they are who they say they are? With a very minimal effort one can collect public info, create a profile with someone’s identity and become a rogue validator(s).
