So much money has been garnered by various ICO’s of late and that seems likely IMO to continue.
There are a pile of potential SafeNet apps that could be developed … and we even have a list and ranking of them: Most wanted APP for the SAFE Network
We also are facing a lot of up and coming devs who see the potential of SafeNet and would like to capitalize on it - they see that no one is yet working on it and they go get funding and then … in some cases they fall down and give everyone a black-eye in the process.
What if a group of long time SafeNet supporters and Devs got together to form a foundation that would do a large mega ICO and then use the money for development & marketing and at the same time the foundation would vet & oversee the developers and projects?
No more black-eyes and solid funding for all IMO.
And as a bonus, we could donate a chunk of money to Maidsafe to help them along.
If we market ourselves (honestly!) as a foundation dedicated to the development of youtube and facebook like apps that put security, anti-censorship, anonymity, & anti-spam at the top of the list and that we will build all apps on SafeNet … and we have a board of directors composed of highly respected SafeNet people and a large group of advisors from well respected long term SafeNet people … we could possibly pull in well over $50MM … that’s a respectable endowment and could go a long way toward helping SafeNet achieve it’s aims.
What do people think?
I would suggest that to start we’d need to get a good lot of people here on the forum to sign up as project advisors … and this group can select a more dedicated group as the board of directors … and that group will hire a team to manage the the foundation, and vet apps for development.
Has anyone started something like this already? I’d like to hear thoughts pro and con.
