Aftershocks of losing Bittrex I suspect, paired with limited news on Alpha 3. Perhaps the Maidafe team is planning to announce the new exchange partnerships and Alpha 3 at once. Whatever the two new exchanges are, I hope they, in sum, approximate the volume potential BIttrex provided.
MAID is available on Changelly and they have just partnered with Binance.
Not the Binance listing many wish for but many new eyes will be on Changelly.
Something is better than nothing!

I was merely pointing out how crazy it is the price was up, but because of so much money pouring into the market again, the coin was knocked out of the top 100.
My comment twas only in jest for the most part David , although I do generally get the impression from prior speeches and comments your views on capitalism are a bit less than favorable. I agree with everything you pretty much said in the comment. Maybe once the network is established and working swimmingly and the value becomes realized we can all play a role not just with the freedom of data but with newfound wealth to be agents of change. We should make a goal that if the token hits $____ value long term we do a MaidSafe International community engagement where we all fly out somewhere, immerse in the culture and help regions struggling with a financial backing and hands on engagement(habitat for humanity/food aid relief). I would totally be up for something like that!
I also see lots of people talking about how to get community developers involved in the project to build apps on top of the SafeNetwork. People who are developers working long hours for companies generally just don’t have the motivation or time after work hours to dedicate to another application(myself included). So I think generally if the token does provide huge value growth over the next 5+ years to come that alone can at least free up early investors that are developers to break away from a standard day job and actually focus time on developing applications for SAFE. I certainly fall into that category. Hoping by then we have tons of examples and possibly ways to test code live in browser that either simulates engagement with the network OR actually runs against network directly to teach us. Also if a lot of the network interaction is API driven, a simple document of REST CURL’s and arguments going into it with real world examples and explanations of those parameters would be super helpful, maybe Swagger/OpenAPI specs would work best there(I personally come from the API development space and API gateways).
I also see some good value in releasing videos on youtube that go from 0 to 100 from a developer perspective on a variety of different OS’es for developing on SAFE. Some variety of this:
Windows/Mac/Linux videos separately
My thoughts would be some docker containers we can run/modify ideally for the fastest ways to get into things quickly.
^Ofc this can’t be done until all the pieces are together and we are in a beta state, but something like this would certainly be a big help to me since so much dev info now is scattered on random forum posts and that is not how the good word should be spread when this network goes live.
Onward and upward. Keep up the great work this year! Loved the DevCon live stream.
No worries, I knew thery were in jest, I just wished to take it further. Thanks though.
In terms of my views on capitalism, I have none really, I suspect it is like socialism and communism, none of them exist beyond a dream in a book. I believe where there is money involved with people then all rules are broken, the poor suffer and the rich get stronger. It is probably natural, but it seems free markets etc. are also a dream, price seeking is another one. They are all great, as dreams I have no alternative answer though so cannot really offer decent critique. Perhaps the answer is a resource based economy, I wish that would work.
Yes I think this is exactly where the new dev hub will go actually.
Capitalism, socialism and communism are all great ideals. Only one thing gets in the way of them. Human Beings

Isn’t the main problem with these different systems is that central power usually ends up corrupt because they have the keys to the riches? Create a system that doesn’t reward them actions and you have a better one (not easy I know). The best book I’ve read on a new system like that is:
I think humanity in general thinks too much about this stuff and creates machines and mechanisms so vast and complex that we lose sight of the original actions and consequences.
Take the UK tax system. There is a massively complex rule set, with additional rules layered on top to fix flaws in previous rules. Who knows what adding another one will do, what incentive it will drive and what repercussions there will be?
But the tax system is just one piece in an ever expanding and more complex rule book. Layers upon layers of freshly minted rules, set to counter many of those that came before it, resulting in another twist in people’s actions and inactions.
For me, those who provide value should be rewarded for it. Those who take value from others should be punished for it. We then all get a fair crack of looking after ourselves and those whom we care about. Isn’t that what it is all about?
How about those who no one cares about?
You will need to be more specific. No one values them and they are unable to convince anyone otherwise? Who might these people be?
That not even knowing what it is, you already know that the ones who take should be punished while the ones who give should be rewarded.
EDIT: The original post went along the lines of:
Have you ever heard of the guy named Vincent van Gogh.
Your concept of value is downright scary.
I somehow managed to substitute it with another answer to the answer answering this answer, which caused uneasiness on Traktion’s side. Hope all is well now.
Considering I haven’t even defined what my concept of value is, I’m not sure what you find scary about it. In fact, it isn’t even up to me to define it - everyone should and does have their own values.
Nope, I didn’t say that either and please don’t edit your post after I have replied to it.
I didn’t mean to. That should have been the answer.
What is this.
I know what I value, what I would reward and what I would punish. That doesn’t define what my values are and nor does it force you to agree.
