Micro-Critique of the TORUM Project’s White Paper —

  • Good recap of the ERC-20 token’s history, including its initial, idealistic goals and the unexpected outcomes after first contact with the real world.
  • Clear description of the TORUM Ecosystem, showing how XTM can be utilized from TORUM to XTORUM.
  • Ambitious Roadmap with concrete milestones from “Genesis” to “Concordia”.


  • Subtle inconsistencies in grammar, verb tense, singular/plural congruence, context and syntax give me (an ex-English teacher) a feeling that the authors — and surely the proofreader and editor — are not native English speakers.
  • As an MBA grad, I found it difficult to perform a rudimentary SWOT analysis based solely on the White Paper’s content.
  • Centralization, decentralization and the TORUM chain is discussed at THE END of the White Paper.

My overall impression of the TORUM Project?

Very Favorable.

What am I looking and hoping for?

A horde of in-rushing “TORUM clones”.

Believing that school was too boring, he dropped out of High School early; only to earn an AA, BS and MBA in less than 4 years much later in life — while working full-time as a Navy/Marine Corps Medic.

In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.

After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.

Since then, he’s been a full-time, single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency — plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).

He lives on an island paradise with his girlfriend, teenage daughter and two dogs.
