I'm a long term witness on Smoke, and a supporter for free speech, open-source and community efforts.
I haven't been very active in Smoke, but is a long term developer for other chains, like Gridcoin and Bitshares.
I'm also a witness on Whaleshares and have been one for Steem up until their chain grew to longer for normal servers to handle. So I have experience in dealing with graphene chains.
I believe we need trading
Today we have no good way to trade Smoke, other than OTC. I believe we need the possibility to offer Smoke to others, new to the chain.
The only platform we have today is using RUDEX to trade on the Bitshares platform. While this is good, they are expensive to withdraw from, with a fee of 1000 SMOKE. The onboarding and userbase on Bitshaers is also very low.
The upside with Steem-Engine/Hive-Engine is that there are no fees involved for us on their part. That makes it possible to cover costs with fees on transfers to/from these platforms.
Offering my services
With that I'm putting the question out here.
- Who thinks we could benefit from a listing on HIve-Engine and/or Steem-Engine?
- Would you use it?
The costs involved are these
- Buying the token on each platform ~$100 each
- Running and maintaining servers for deposits and withdrawls
My offer is to run and maintain that we have the infrastructure to make deposits/withdrawls to the platforms. I will have to put a fee to these to cover the costs, but I'll be open with how much things does cost and why we need a specific fee for it.
The fee to buy the tokens would be preferable if the community wanted to cover, but I'm up to cover these initially as well, just another thing the fees will have to cover.
We will not be visible in the deposit/withdarwal list on either platforms, as that rquires a direct listing, where they take care of everything, for a fee of $1,000.
A possible fee to cover costs would be ~0.5-2%.
What do you think?
Is this a good idea, would you use it, would you make others use it to expand on the platform?
