Wrapped MAID (ERC20 token)

With WMAID this is not so. There is no risk to the MaidSafe company. The risk is for the people who exchange their tokens. But let’s be realistic. People who keep their money with others anyway (on an exchange) would be better off if their money was kept in the community party of people we have faith in.

That way, at least we reduce the dangers. There will be no danger of closing,delisting and hacking. The only danger is stealing.

But we can take action on that. For example, make an exchange (MAID to WMAID and WMAID to MAID) only once a month, with exchange requests public with a 1 week wait and a public mailing list / telegram channel to announce for any interested party to follow.

I am ex-member one of the largest cryptocurrency exchange.

So, exchanges prefer ERC-20 because of existing system. BUT they need listing fee. It is more important factor than ERC-20.

And I know exact listing fee. But it is not cheap. So, if you guys really want to list maidsafe to big exchange, donate money for listing fee. That is practical solution. ERC-20 is not solution.

You’re right, but you’re missing out on what’s going on right now. UniSwap currently has 80m$ on-chain liquidity! And it’s growing. Centralized exchanges are doomed…

The site is down. And UniSwap needs on-line backers of both orders. Is there enough backers for maidsafe token? I dont thinks so.

Is uniswap.info down right now?
It’s just you. uniswap.info is up.

That’s not true. This DEX doesn’t work that way. Liquidity providers should not be online. Only the buyer / seller…

proposal: MAID listing on exchanges via community created foundation

Do any exchanges allow a few to be recouped via a cut in transaction fees? That way both the individual/company paying the fee and the exchange benefit from trades. Successful listings would then pay for themselves.

So there is a good chance that big exchange is yet another scam then. There are exchanges, some of them quite big, that do not charge listing fees but that only accept quality projects. Safe Network easily passes on that criteria.

Agreed. Only if exchanges refuse to list OMNI should resources be channeled into ERC-20 at this time. I think the first priority should be to stop the bleeding, which means listing on high-volume exchanges.

The exchanges are profit oriented. So, If they don’t charge listing fees of maidsafe, there are tons of maidsafe users&traders and huge demand for maidsafe coin. If not, they don’t list maidsafe without fee.

Good tech, and qualified project are second thing for exchanges.

P.S And the exchanges don’t review all of maidsafe’s code.(It is never their priority job). At least, Fleming show real working things, they have some interesting about maidsafe. I already introduce to my friends at exchanges about maidsafe. And they want to see real active things. And I agree about that.

P.S 2 Even maidsafe is listing, if there is no enough trading volume, then they will delist maidsafe. (Remember we were delisted at Poloniex because of low trading volume).

sure if we can get it listed on a high volume exchange that sounds good to me and this conversation will probably die off again like it did on chainrift listing. I just see a lot of barriers to getting listed on a good exchange. Making a DEX token on the other hand has only the barrier of we need to put in effort to make it happen. I don’t think the same is true for getting listed on an exchange; it won’t happen just cause we try hard.

I think the key is to show people how this network REALLY work.

Then, listing, trading volume, demand for maidsafe coins etc are automatically following. (I think that this is why divide concentrate on delivery launch the network as soon as possible. And I agree that)

The team have been developing over 14 years, there is no only sexy IT marketing for maidsafe like ETH or Tron. The only break through is proof “SAFE network is really working like as their goal”.

So, let’s wait and endure this low liquidity time. We are on the last stage. Take all or nothing.

NO, the big exchange demand high trading volume of maidsafe. And if not they will delist maidsafe exactly same as Poloniex. The listing is not solution for this stage.

(If there is enough trading volume, The poloniex didn’t delist maidsafe. It is really easy and clear)

I think at least after Fleming, we could talk with exchange about listing to show them the Fleming network.

I started investing in cryptocurrency about seven years ago. And I learned many thing with fatal failure.

So I have a lot of maidsafe coins, but at the same time I have distributed my crypto assets on the assumption that SAFE network may not be launched at this bullish wave.

This seems to be the best advice I can give. And I hope that I will see all of these old devoted members at the end of long tunnel.

Centralized exchanges do have the advantage of that’s most peoples comfort zone. I would be willing to trade on a DEX, but might have to learn how if we aren’t using the TRON one. Just curious where other’s stand on this.

Would you be willing to move your MAID trading operations to a DEX?

  • Yes
  • Yes, but would have to learn how
  • No

It will happen if we foot the bill and engage in effective marketing. If, however, a working product is not delivered in good time, all such efforts would have been for nought.

On principle I like the idea of DEX. That being said, there are still significant challenges from low liquidity to front-running that make DEX an inadequate alternative to standard exchanges. See https://blog.gnosis.pm/decentralized-exchanges-have-a-problem-7e6d81d91ba1 and https://hacken.io/research/education/decentralized-and-centralized-exchanges-advantages-vs-disadvantages-aa9a27da4584/ for further discussion.

If the goal is to get to higher trade volume and better buy opportunities, DEX is not the appropriate solution at this time.

Is their anyway to get a price on a real exchange such as binance? How do we get that conversation started?

The problem is that Maidsafe is likely holding Maid’s and selling as required to pay costs … the funds they are able to get for those Maid likely depends on having a decent exchange to trade them on and of course the ability to maintain some price stability too. So I just don’t agree with you that we can wait until Fleming to get listed on an decent exchange. Frankly, I think this is an emergency all-hands-on-deck situation.

The problem with this is that we are polling to the choir here on the forum. If we want higher volumes, then we need listing on a major exchange I suspect.
