A little while ago @Birdinc1 reached out to discuss the following:
Since then, we have worked on putting together a proposal for how the community can help to facilitate expanding MAID’s exchange footprint. Please see the draft proposal below and share feedback by taking the survey and responding to this topic.
Objectives: Expand the range of exchanges listing MAID (and subsequently Safecoin). This will enable investors, traders, developers, and consumers to better support and promote the SAFE Network’s mission to provide “Freedom of expression, control of personal data, private and secure communications; and a whole new economy”.
Method: Leveraging his extensive network and experience negotiating coin and token listings, @Birdinc1 (David Jefferys) will facilitate conversation with exchanges. He is also able to handle in-bound requests on behalf of the MaidSafe team. Also, @Sotros25 or a community nominee will connect the exchanges with the MaidSafe developers for integration as needed. The time requirement for the MaidSafe team is expected to be minimal.
To be considered a target, an exchange must 1) have meaningful real trade volume, 2) maintain a decent reputation
David will leverage his expertise to continually assess the changing landscape for crypto:crypto and fiat:crypto exchanges.
A three-phased approach will expand the exchange footprint for MAID (and subsequently Safecoin).
Phase 1: Focuses on smaller community-friendly exchanges with minimal listing fees.
- Ionomy (not yet ranked on Coinmarket Cap)
- ProBit (Korea)
Phase 2: Focuses on mid-tier exchanges, which may require moderate listing fees.
Phase 3: Focuses on large exchanges, which typically require significant listing fees.
- Coinbase (Rosseta integration)
Work on Phase 1 can begin immediately. Phase 2 would be best coordinated with a stable Fleming release. Nearing beta release would best support Phase 3.
To help provide feedback on this proposal, please take this poll. You can select more than one response. The poll will close on Friday Aug 14.
- The community should help to get MAID listed on additional exchanges
- The community should NOT help to get MAID listed on additional exchanges
- I would like to assist in helping get MAID listed on additional exchanges (e.g. suggest additional target exchanges, volunteer as a liaison with the dev team, fundraise, etc.)
