Many are finding it very difficult to come up with or are unwilling to risk to minimum investment necessary to participate in the Maidsafe funding on BNK To The Future. One idea might be to set up a small syndication with friends or within the community. There would have to be a “syndication manager” who would be required to fulfill the legal representation on BNK and trust would be an important factor. But this could lower the threshold to manageable levels. Something like 3 people 1/3+1/3+1/3 with an agreement that any costs or taxes incurred by the syndication manager would be paid by the syndication.
This would be akin to an “investment club” and in many jurisdictions securities regulators do not require registration of such. But there are smarter guys than me on this forum that could chime in.
The syndication could be notarized on the blockchain and multisig wallet used to commit from and redistribute coins to members.
