The state of partnerships is mostly 'pipe-dreams' as you put it. We have generated a lot of leads from events, but people didn't have time to follow up or it wasn't a focus. As you mention Baron was supposed to do this, but he didn't deliver. I was not part of the NIX partnership process so I can't speak about that one. What I have been involved with is the ISO standard talks. I have a meeting in February at "Dansk Standard" which is the Danish branch that deals with ISO work.

I have a meeting in the books early January with Overledger but this is preliminary. I’m trying to approach ISO from several angles, Arlyn also has a contact that he is working. I’ve contacted Hyperledger and during these days I'm going through the material it would take to get us involved. I'm chasing Hyperledger because I see it as giving us legitimacy and opening the market for XRouter. There are some other projects of this type that showed interest that I would pursuit.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
My focus for XRouter is not primarily inside the Blockchain/crypto ecosystem, but rather the ‘old’ world that are to use this technology for further digitization of old manual processes. Supporting new coins are great, and I have a few ideas on how we could make ourselves even more attractive in this regard, but my focus would be making us attractive to land actual users.

Regarding pay, I’m not asking for a 3 months contract. I’ve set my price for one month symbolically. I’m not looking to drain the project of funds, the proof of that would be my 4 years pro-bono contribution to the project. If I find that I’m not able to add the value I hope to, I won’t put up a renew proposal. Put it like this: I don't think BlockDX needs much classic business development.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
think XRouter do. I think both offerings need Growth hacking, a redesign to our product lifecycle process, much more lean/agile whatever buzz word you could attach to it. But in laymen terms we need to think about how to actually get users on our products. We are building "end-game" content but we are ignoring the starting zone.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
I tried to convey in my proposal that I’m not the Growth Hacker person that Blocknet needs. But what I can do is help us get to a place where we could utilize such a role. I would be ‘treating water’ with trying to reach out to the leads we did get from the Expo. I have only talked with those that contacted me directly, as I didn’t have time for anything else, and there must be some reason to just how much I work for free for this project.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
I can’t promise you that they will materialize into anything but I can promise you that if I don’t do it, nothing will happen. I believe that the project now is in a stage where we have to setup processes that can sustain partnerships, or we will have ended up building great tech under the hood but see little actual adoption. We need reference cases for XRouter, BlockDX is a good first reference as it showcases the tech, but it’s not an external customer using our tech.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
We need external customers using our tech. Partnerships won’t happen on their own. We need processes and staffing around them. Is now the right time? Now is the time that you can get me to this role, else I will be locked up in a new full-time contract minding my career. I don’t believe you will get someone with my experience and knowledge about the project and our market at this rate at a later stage.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
Can we afford this role? That is for you the Service nodes to decide. You declined unlocking more funds last month, which has resulted in that we are down to 1 full time coder (Besides Dan whom isn’t paid). Others were cut and then of cause lost. . If our Service nodes only concern themselves on their % of the total pie, they might miss the opportunity to grow said pie. Blocknet is a utility token, not a cryptocurrency.
qaz12 Unverified commented 1 year 9 months ago
Yes issuing new tokens will offset fee generation and thus ROI. But it must be seen in a bigger picture. Dash is a great example of a project that grew it's pie (inflated but price of each coin)
