It would take a bit of work but really just to make a simple order book I don’t think would be huge. Just make sure 90% of deposits are cold stored in case hackers think our throw together market is an easy target. At the very least the dev team could auction off the large blocks they are selling and basically do a P2P market.
Even if the volume was low right now this would be a safe “moon base” in case polo decides to delist. Of course we would have the same issue if the government started considering MAID a security and found our little market they might move to shut it down. I guess we would technically need to do KYC to. Ok so there are some other hurdles besides just building it. Still I think it would be a small enough market they would just be like ya nice garage sale, not worth our effort to send lawyers after you. Basically if we could just have it READY to launch as a backup if polo fell though I would feel alot more secure. So maybe build the exchange side and then cross the bridge of the legal side if we need to actually draw our weapon.
A small but real benefit would be the dev team could take a trade fee and use it to fund development. I mean I love trading, but have to admit I am like damn polo over the course of time you have skimmed alot and don’t really invest in the projects you are skimming from. In fact I would accept up to maybe a 0.5% trade fee if I knew that was all going back into creating value for the coin I am paying fees to trade.
