This is all excellent news. I love the academy idea, especially when it focusses on farming; because people have questions about how exactly that will be done, and what resources they will need to gather, and when they should be prepared to farm, etc.
Have you thought about what should happen to the wiki? I think it either needs a more or less complete overhaul since it still contains a lot of outdated information and it is missing a lot of information or it should be taken down.
@frabrunelle and a couple of others still made some changes, but it should be aligned with the overall strategy since it shows up very high in the search results.
Feel free to reach out to me to discuss how you want to go forward with this.
PS: Although I haven’t posted on the forum in quite some time, I haven’t lost interest, quite the opposite
With the focus on SafeNetwork instead of MaidSafe does it not make more sense to redesign and push safenetwork.org ?
Surely having maidsafe.net as the new sparkling all singing all dancing website is going to keep promoting what is meant to be avoided.
MaidSafe really needs this. It can be at least 5x bigger easily this year just because more and more people are getting into crypto, decentralization, freedom and these types of things, and MaidSafe will blow everything else out of the water, while blockchains continue to snap
The way I see it is the company and the community (and in fact the world) share the technology, but as a profit making entity MaidSafe will at times have additional priorities. We need to ensure returns for our equity investors and therefore looking for commercial partnerships with companies will be a focus. For example, supporting SAFE Networks running inside corporate networks. Recruitment is also a major factor and motivating highly talented and qualifies individuals to work for the company (not the network) will also be a focus. So there will be much shared between SAFE Network and MaidSafe and we look forward to all pitching in on these together, but also some differences hence the need for slightly different messages and approach.
Please have a look at https://bitclude.com/ It is new cpryto-exchange opened Jan 2018 based in UK. I believe there is chance to get listed there (MAID/Fiat). As they are new there wont be need to pay enourmous fee to get listed I hope. Plus given how fast crypto exchanges can grow client base… in several months it could be decent size exchange.
How much has been budgeted for marketing in 2018? Very ambitious goals and trying to gauge how much $$ committed to achieving. I know there are many things that can be done at very little cost but not sure how much cost should be taken into consideration especially when voting on proposals.
Out of all the projects I follow…MAID is closest to my Even among the outside community, so many people have not heard of this project yet. We need more eyes and ears aware if this project is to ultimately succeed and you are definitely correct in saying that an increase in price will attract that.
This looks like a plan . I think if these actions are delivered well then we will see growth in the community and this will result in the growth in price. Feel free to reach out if there is any help needed.
