I’m not putting up an address or an amount. I’d simply like to hear how people would feel about this idea in general.
I think it’s time to make a major change to our networks most prominent property NuBits.com. Two major reasons I think this is a worthwhile investment for the network.
Maintenance. Shareholders currently must pay the monthly cost for a server to host the website. Only a couple people have access to make updates and changes to the website. The site is built using Drupal which has proven to be difficult in allowing various changes for site content.
Branding. I have already shared my thoughts on why NuShares and our governance model should become a primary marketing focus. Our current website doesn’t reflect that. My goal is for NuLaws to become a prominent focal point for users to learn about what constitutes the spirit, values, and regulations of our network within the coming months. We also plan to begin offering new products from the network. NuBits will essentially become similiar Google. No longer solely attributed to search, but a host of products under a familiar name. Though still a branch of the Nu Network.
Now should be the time to start restructuring our most visible property to become more flexible and cheaper to maintain. As well as restructuring it to show off not only NuBits but our evolving platform of governance and suite of products that we offer.
My personal guidelines for the restructure:
Restructure landing page layout to have more content on governance, and how a distributed organization is able to solve many of the problems other projects have faced (and failed to resolve). Maybe not all on the main page. Similar to how we have “Buying, selling, transferring, etc” on the front page for NuBits. With each leading to content and examples and pages where people can learn more about NuShares, voting, and NuLaws. We would still obviously have content about NuBits products of the Nu Network managed by people who are invested in the platform. I think it should also be structured to allow for showing off of other potential products besides stable coins.
I wanted to bring this up now as I think it’s a project that would require a lot of community feedback and take time to implement. It would be beneficial to have everything in place by the time NuLaws is in motion and the new NuBits products are released. Also before B&C Exchange is operational as many communities will have an interest in learning about it which in turn will draw a lot of attention towards Nu. Especially if NuBits becomes the de facto base pair.
I don’t think anyone on the team has time to undertake this ourselves, and I doubt anyone in the community has enough time to donate. Passing a grant to pay for someone like our previous web development team (SkyCatchFire) to produce a working base would take care of the hardest part which is building a solid framework to fill in with content.
