Project Decorum - Crowdsale (Ended)

So it’s kind of like an endorsement that everyone knows had to be paid for?

If that’s in demand, might there be a market for other paid for endorsement tokens? I’m struggling to see why these will have any significant future value.

I was hoping holders of the tokens would have some privilege / benefit beyond doing what seems like a ‘proof of burn’ endorsement.

Perhaps I’m just missing the value that others are seeing here :slight_smile: (and I’m still going to donate to help out even if I don’t understand the appeal of Clikes!).

Possible, but I don’t know.

If you imagine a future where a lot of people use Project Decorum’s protocol to communicate, to the point that organisations start seeing it as a real target for PR purposes, then Clike is the easiest way to get them exposure. Since people own their own data, advertising as done on the clear-net doesn’t work in SAFE. So instead of paying an advertisement company like google or facebook to show ads on pages, they buy Clike for this purpose.

Great, thanks! Also remember that you don’t necessarily need to see it to make a profit, just as long as others do! :wink:


Just noticed my Maid donation arrived safely. I’ve followed this project rather closely since last year, and I see a huge potential. The net is all about socializing, next to the commercial activities we perform, and I think we should not make any mistake: Potentially this is HUGE. I wish all participants good luck. Good to see also that MaidSafe people from all levels are involved. Toi toi toi! :slight_smile:


If I understand correctly, the individual user will have great discretion as to the importance they give the to types of trust:

  1. Hard won by their nature, Web of Trust ranking will always be weighted heavily and persistently when viewed against Clike ranking.

  2. Value of Clike rank decays with time.

  3. User has the option to select whether to even pay any attention at all to Clike rankings. Can simply ignore it and operate strictly on WoT rankings.

Therefore, Clike could have huge value in terms of getting in front of very targeted groups, but the promoter had better do it right, because they stand the risk of having the door shut in their faces quite easily and without bother to the User if the promoter is not well targeted, polite, considerate and relevant to the User.

Modern mass marketers are likely to simply not get this at first because they’re model is abusive by necessity.

The subtlety of this is incredible and one example of how SAFE enforces rationality by making individuals in control by default.

It’s really hard to gauge how the economics of Clike will go, but it’s going to be interesting watching it find its level and usages.

Very cool.


I couldn’t have put it better myself @fergish, thanks!


The Project Decorum Coins have been successfuly registered in the Omni protocol:

So PDC’s with ID #59 are the legitimate ones! I just updated the website as well. I’ll attempt to get it on some exchanges after the crowdsale has ended.


I love how this puts the responsibility on the promoter to be as considerate as they can be. It could really change the direction of advertising as you have already said. My time in precious and if you mess with my time I can shut the door! Awesome!


@Warren should really love this prospect I suspect. Or at least consider it better than the current situation.


Are you going to list PDC in any exchange?

I’m definitely going to try to get it listed! Bittrex will be my first target. With the current result already, I don’t think they’ll object.


Management of this web of trust is mostly automated based on how you (and others already in your web of trust) treat the identity in question.

Could you further describe what will be automated and what will be end user controlled? Also if there will be any part of end user’s data controlled by another human?


Poloniex maybe? It’s the largest MaidSafeCoin exchange by far, too…


Good question! The objective is to not require special actions from users, unless they’re ‘advanced’ users and want to micro-manage things. So the web of trust management is done based on regular actions, such as adding someone as a contact, endorsing someone’s content, flagging someone’s post as spam, etc.

No, I don’t see this happening, at least not in Project Decorum’s products.


That would be great, but I think they are a bit picky? We’ll see, I’d love to have it on there!

Niet geschoten is altijd mis… (Noticed in the disclaimer papers you’re from The Netherlands?)

If you don’t take a shot, you’ll always miss, for the non-Dutch lol.


No you have but yes you can get ;-).


What’s the best way to donate BTC if not from an exchange what do you suggest ?

Omniwallet. In omniwallet you will be able to see the tokens coming back.


Will Clike coins generate dividends based on app use?

No, people can use them to ‘boost’ a topic, reply, article etc. tot the top on say a forum or so. When they do that coin is gone.
