Good work and thanks for making the effort and I like the emphasis on the mobile wallet(s) too , I know some work is underway in this segment, and I think we can deliver a few nice apps supporting NuBits before Christmas. So this part is definitely feasible.
The valuation and positioning of NuShares is important. The currency burning proposal will help with that. However I think it is more important to focus on the potential benefits/dividends. Without setting expectation too high, I think it should be better advertised what a given amount of NuShares might deliver on dividends assuming some scenarios. I know this information is partially in the grant, but some consolidated supporting graphs and data on the website or even in the client would be desirable in the next months.
Marketing Fund for NuBits
You are referring to the Peercoin community regarding the marketing. You might know that River333 and I are running a Marketing Fund (like a custodial grant) with a charter on how people may draw PPC from this in order to do some Peercoin marketing. Read more here: http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?board=66.0 for the marketing charter and the proposals submitted. I would say it is a moderate success, but it should do better.
The question is do you think such a set-up would work for NuBits? The advantage is that we don’t need to bother stakeholders with every little activity, but still have a robust process available to assess proposals and distribute the funds. The other advantage is that people can earn NuBits and that it will be proven as an usable token with a stable value.
A lot of the long-term plans should be delivered by the wider community. A more pro-active approach than with Peercoin may be required to get a few things done. E.g. people can subscribe to a given proposal and bid. Haven’t seen this working very well till date probably due to the volatility of Peercoin, but it is worth experimenting further with it. Maybe with the help of tools like Openbazaar it will become more popular to earn cryptocurrencies. Also the stability of the value of NuBits will surely help. Nothing feels as bad as seeing your hard earned money get 20% less worth in a week or so and sometimes even before it is in your wallet.
Also like to hear your view or from others regarding things like releasing press releases and interviews. This requires some centralisation and a visible person. This is something we could never solve in the Peercoin community unless we hire professionals which would be very expensive and risky given other agendas they might have.
