Bitsquare isn't a liquid market. It's nice that it is on there, but it's not really an option if anyone wants to buy or sell. No one is asking you to pump the coin, it is just a cheap way to get access to a more liquid market and all the benefits that brings.
Having SAFE-FS appear on a bigger exchange (like cryptopia) is pretty cool. It would mean more eyes on the token which means more people researching what it is and what it will try to do. It would be a step towards creating interest just as we're getting to MD and the chance to see a v1.
Perhaps you're right that it should wait for post v1. It is a bit pointless to do it before that I guess, but exchanges like cryptopia won't just add it when the time is right, they'll add it when you pay their fee. Be that now, at v1 or 6 months after v1. Larger exchanges will never be able to list it because it pays dividends and is therefore a 'security'.
Seems like a very easy option for relatively little cash. Unlike bitsquare we're paying so wouldn't have to waste a load of time jumping through hoops with info to 'apply'. Nik said he was happy to do it (well volunteered ), so it wouldn't even necessarily have to be you. I'm not sure why you gave such a negative response tbh. People want a liquid market for any asset they hold, even if they don't plan on selling any time soon, that should not surprise anyone really. Bitsquare isn't a liquid market. Liquidity and markets are not negative or shameful things. People trading their assets is not a bad thing. Having new avenues for people to stumble across the SAFE ecosystem is not a bad thing. Maidsafe themselves have enjoyed the benefits of being traded actively in liquid markets for years. I would never have found SAFE nor would many here if it were not for talk of the token.
I'm kind of puzzled by your response tbh. It doesn't seem like you to turn a positive into a negative. I think you're right to suggest waiting for post v1, but you make it sound like people are asking some great effort from you here. Since they support omni this would just be a matter of sending them the BTC and a bit of info by the sounds of it. Nik half-volunteer'ed himself so it would surely be easier to say "sure, but I'm really busy adding the value with development and other SAFE stuff, so you guys sort it out and see if you can raise enough".
? How so. Dan said 0.2/0.3. I would happily give the same, it sounds like Nik would give something. Sounds more like we're half way there with just three people already.
