Will, congratulations and and good luck. $26k would get you a shed here in UK, or a small narrowboat (two years and clothes not mouldy @JPL).
Thanks, 2bedrooms, was listed about $10k higher before I started overstating the issues still, Florida has some good deals left if you’re willing to look hard, wait for the best ones, and hold your ground negotiating
I’m guessing you’ve done a lot of ‘eating out’ and tinned food on a camping stove in that van, so I hope you’ll be now saving money by cooking healthy, homemade grub
And even if there’s no garden you can still grow some herbs and veggies in pots somewhere I’m sure.
Yeah, some sort of woodburning stove is a must to keep everything dry. Not possible in a small camper van though (imagine the insurance!). A lesson learned.
26k could last you 5+ years in 3rd world country. But it just means no meetups and van.

How did you know? Yes, I retired at age 49 in South America and live on about 12k per year.
Thanks for the update, I didn’t know that you lived in a van
In fact I don’t think I know much about you other than your name, a couple of photos and reputation. A lot of people believe in your work and efforts and they support you that’s why I’m following and supporting this thread.
Hi, any progress on the exchange listing? I know you said that a decentralized exchange on SAFE is a backup plan but worst case is it could take years for something like that to happen.
Can you share your plans for getting SFSC listed on some other exchange?
I am sorry for pushing again but I just did not expect that SFSC would not be listed anywhere almost half a year after the crowdsale. The reason being you stated you will “put every effort” into an exchange listing. To be honest I cannot see you putting “every effort” into this. Maybe a little more transparency on that process would help. Thank you!
Quite accusatory, Did you see all the messages above? I’ve tried the ideas you have given those were helpful, and the other exchanges previously and shared the results with everyone on our old forums and also on this thread, very transparent, the method is exactly the same as every new coin listing that has ever happened in history: emailing exchanges and /or filling out their new coin listing forms and following up, which has been the procedure here and been shared every time any news has come in (which besides a short email from Yobit, hasn’t been much this far)
And again, you’re definitely encouraged to get involved as well as everyone else in the community in the form of sending them emails to show interest in the coin, I’ve heard from successful ones that that really reflects well in the eyes of the exchanges, who want to be sure the coin will bring good volume. And we all thought SAFE would be farther by now so you’re not alone in that feeling
Sorry for my tone but both of us could improve our tones greatly
Only way I can imagine being more transparent is giving you the password to the WhiteOutMashups email account so you can read them in their raw form but of course that’s very foolish and also very unnecessary because I’ve posted / screenshot them here on this thread and on the previous forums to make them visible
I am sorry for my tone. I am just a little frustrated and could not hold that back. I will be more neutral this time
Ok, so first I will try to explain where this frustration comes from. It is just that I thought that for now you have to wait till safenet gets mature enough so that you can actually start the real development of SAFE-FS. Maybe this assumption is wrong and you are already developing behind the scenes? At least no information about development was posted here for some time. That is why I assumed that this project is on hold for now and the only task you could do right now while waiting for safenet is trying to get SFSC listed. After my last post I could not see any updates on that process, this is why I assumed nothing more than what you have already stated has been done except maybe filling out the coin application on bleutrade but I do not know what the result was since you did not mention it again. So all this for me was not something I would call “putting every effort” into something (Maybe I do not understand that expression correctly since I am no native speaker as you can tell I guess ) . I really do not want to offend you but this is just how I perceived it.
I expected something like that you maybe go through a list of exchanges (e.g. the 115 exchanges listed on coinmarketcap: Top Cryptocurrency Exchanges Ranked By Volume | CoinMarketCap) and try everyone of them. I know that is a lot and probably not woth with most exchanges but that is just what I understand under “putting every effort”. Also you could talk to other cryptoproject founders how they got listed. Moreover there already are decentralised exchanges like bitsquare.io, openledger or NXT. At least for bitsquare I think it is possible to add a coin yourself via a github pull request (https://forum.bitsquare.io/t/how-to-add-your-favorite-altcoin/46). Also WAVES is about the release a decentralised exchange and if no other possibility exists to list SFSC maybe it is at least worth considering making a swap from Omni to WAVES asset (I think that is also possible with NXT). In this way SFSC would be automatically added to their exchange afaik.
So these are all the ideas that come to my mind. I will talk to the mineum founder and ask him how they got listed on yobit and bleutrade. Besides that I am not very connected and think I cannot really help that much. I also do not think that it is possible to convince an exchange to list SFSC by us investors since we are too few. I think the only chance is a small exchange that does not really care about volume anyway or going with a decentralised exchange and for that the best way imo is for the project founder to talk to the respective decision makers.
Do not get me wrong I do not plan to sell for good at the moment, but sometimes I want to get out of a position for a short period of time to take advantage of another opportunity and get back in later. That option is what I am hoping for and I hope that can be realised before the launch of safenet.
I hope my tone was ok this time, if not it was really not meant to be negative.
I saw this the other day and found it quite inspiring… it seems relevant here too.
You rarely get the things you ask for the first time, but perhaps with a phone call or meet in person rather than email you might get further. Just a thought.
I did write an email to a few of the smaller exchanges, but none got back to me either. I suspect it will take more persistence from the dev side to allay any concerns they might have. At the end of the day they just need to be sure it isn’t a scam and that there is serious work going on behind the scenes that could be of value.
Just my 2 cents anyway, I understand this isn’t a big priority but if you really want to get it listed somewhere you probably can if you’re persistent and manage to start a proper dialogue with some decision makers
This is great actually, my updates have been saying otherwise so it looks like these are not frustrations that you need to have any longer, only misconceptions so that’s very good news for you!
Not my stance maybe it was a long time ago but the SAFE Browser and safe-js have changed that a long time ago already if you’ve been following my posts (and please do in the future, I take time to write them so you can stay up to date, and not fall behind and then end up making posts like all these :P)
Safe-js is at a stable place, and looks like it will be maintained across future versions also (mobile websites / apps / authenticator thru mobile CEP Browsers that will support it) so it has given me a solid kit to be creating my apps with the team, have been making posts / questions on the dev forum here and there also throughout
Which I think people have used for SFSC exchanging already, so please feel free to use that. Also we have done exchanges with private escrow deals, escrows available everywhere and I also provide that if you need to exchange immediately
Other than that lots of very concrete and productive ideas again, and I’ll go through all of those as well. I might have forgot to post a email reply when doing one of your last suggestions I’ll look and see if I missed giving an update there. And I really think I heard of people using Bitsquare already for SFSC trades I’ll ask around again too. Haven’t used it too deeply myself yet.
And mostly as in the screenshots I’ve given, the plan was contacting and following up with the main exchanges that I mentioned on the safe-fs.io website, which was Polo, Yuanbao and Bittrex, which was where I felt the best chances of listing and volume would come from. That’s why it was advertised that way on our website, because that was the plan. So I apologize if I haven’t gone by your plan / expectations 100% but I have definitely gone by mine and continue to. But your ideas are very productive and I’m not a coin trader so I have much to learn about this area / all the millions of exchanges that seem to be out there. And I’m working find a place among them before SAFE comes out
Many updates to our website!
While every single one of the pages on our site received post-sale updates, the most major new parts are:
- the beginning of our company blog
- adding a page that describes our current pursuit of Bitsquare, and
- finally adding Avash G. to our company page, as lead safe-js developer
In regards to our Bitsquare pursuit, may I please ask everyone to make an account at forum.bitsquare.io and write a little something there to support my new post about adding SFSC to Bitsquare. I think we really have a chance if we pull together for it!
Thanks very much everyone! It would be great for our investors to have another way to trade besides private escrow deals, and Bitsquare reflects many of the core principles of SAFE: decentralization & no 3rd parties!
Maybe everyone was busy reading the dev update instead today, but I was hoping we would get some support here @nik you were very vocal quite recently
Thanks very much guys for the support! Their forum admin seems to login every few days here and there so we play the waiting game a bit now, but your support means everything and thank you very much for it! If there’s anywhere else you’d like me to try then definitely let me know but it may be beneficial to just try at this one right now to show them our dedication to it.
We made it!!!
SAFE-FS coin is being integrated into the next version of bitsquare!! Great job guys thanks very much for the support!!
