If there were 950 members watching (so many more registered, meeting are not that fun!!) I think I'd be dancing like a maniac But you are right, we need to manage expectations and avoid promising things that we are not prepared to fulfill yet. Public multisigs are our first step in the total transparency road, but we'll advance more towards that in the future.Sound great fernando
i was wondering as well how the meeting would run if you knew 950 people were watching you online.
I think you guys should do this step by step (do NOT overtake yourself)
transparency will grow on you and us.
This needs a bit of time but sure a video conference will be on the horizon (sooner or later) ....>
That is what we want to achieve with the publication of the minutes in the website (About > Meetings), but I agree that we need to do it faster than the next meeting.Not a member, but if you wish to cover the public/private angle then a transcript or notes about the important points could be made public after the private meeting.
I am "following" you ....>It would make sense to have the option to support the Darkcoin Currency with a direct easy in wallet donation option. A easy model would be to get participating masternoders to donate a percentage of their profits to the Darkcoin Foundation. I also think if everyone starts supporting the foundation and we initially provide it with enough to create the and pillar for accumulation of masternodes, you know something like 1 node goes to support the project, the other node to increase the resources in the first node group… In this sense, it would be extremely beneficial in my opinion to strategically encourage masternode operators to donate a large amount now, an excessive large amount.
Let me explain, because the foundation is new and is so vital for the world, it is vital that we allocate maximum resources to its implementation, which means funding. I propose to the members of the board, that you encourage us to give a high percentage now and for the first few years, a high percentage maybe even 50 % of what we make on our nodes if we decide to participate. Then, when the foundation is strong, well funded with operating nodes, when the Darkcoin brand is strong and bright, maybe the foundation can arrange for us to be some kind of MIP's have a lounge somewhere, take us out to dinner sometimes or something like that… For life. Hahaha, wanted to add a little humour there because of the lifetime memberships, I liked that part…
After all we will have invested a lot in the foundation in the end, we will basically have funded the foundation through the community and then given the community back the channel for action and the very possibility of all this itself with Evan, Holder and all the newer Devs, so cool ( this I would see as an investment in lifestyle rather than a donation, so it would be important for the foundation to let us know that we are making a smart investment… Don't worry, I already have faith it would be more for others lol)
This would show true commitment and organization, strategic, smart, I would be willing to sacrifice a part of my personal wealth now to help Darkcoin and I'm sure others would see the wonder in such a strategy, true organization. It would also clearly establish the Foundation as a strong and trusted channel for our efforts when we really need to focus our intention and resources on specific goals.
Sounds good fernando!r-ando I know you just let yourself go and that is great, but let's try to keep the threads on focus. This thread was about board meetings, we should not talk marketing darkcoin here because most people won't see it. If we don't keep threads on topic we will turn this into bitcointalk. If you start a thread about marketing ideas in the general forum we can all discuss them there. Regarding the ideas for the foundation, this is the right place, but please start new threads for different things
Probably on May 14th. We usually schedule them for the second Thursday of every month, but we talk a few days before to check if it fits with everyone's agenda. If it doesn't we try to move it to accommodate. The date of the meetings is not really that important because we usually stay in contact over email and IM all the time.When is the next meeting?
