Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve compiled a list of the most common questions about Mission Protocol.

How should I set my mission?

A mission should be clear, focused, and carefully crafted to specify exactly what your project intends to accomplish.

It’s a good idea to take some time to think about the impact you want your project to have, and write a short statement which concisely reflects it.

What are some good example mission statements?

Mission statements can be as short or as long as you’d like. A mission statement can be as simple as “to share an experiment to improve database efficiency,” or as sweeping as Tesla’s “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy,” or as bold as Coinbase’s, “to create an open financial system for the world.”

When crafting a mission statement, focus on your end goal, and aim for clarity.

How can I provide feedback on the latest version of Mission Protocol?

Feel free to open an issue on the Mission Protocol repository to start a discussion. You can also provide feedback to us directly via the email provided on our Contact Page.

How can my company or project adopt the Mission Protocol Code of Conduct if we don’t have an open source repository?

You can include and adapt the Code of Conduct contents found here. If you’re interested in working with us on how to ensure a smooth adoption process, send us an email.

Was Mission Protocol created, or is it currently run, by Brian Armstrong or Coinbase?

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong was one source of inspiration, but neither he nor Coinbase are affiliated with this project. Mission Protocol is a collective of diverse, cross-cultural makers and influencers in tech and the open-source community.

How do you know your project’s mission is good?

Good missions have many things in common, but reasonable people can and do disagree about exactly which missions to pursue. We encourage people to participate in projects whose missions they feel are actually good.
