Do you believe XCP will be valuable in future?
I’m not able to predict the future. The value proposition of XCP today is that it is useful for registering Counterparty assets.
What will drive the price of XCP?
Based on my prior response, I would say raising awareness about the usefulness of a Counterparty asset, the existing use cases: BITCRYSTALS, SJCX, LTBCOIN, FLDC, GEMZ, SCOTCOIN, and the surrounding ecosystem: CounterWallet, IndieSquare, Blockscan, XChain, Blocktrail, Tokenly, CoinDaddy, ShapeShift, Poloniex, Bittrex, etc.
Where do you see Counterparty in one year?
I’d like to see Counterparty continue to work, especially for the projects already deployed and using the protocol. And I’d like to see decisions which put stability and usability of the protocol ahead of inventing XCP use cases and price action, as to attract developers rather than speculators (who invite themselves no matter what).
Where do you see Counterparty in five years?
In crypto, five years is “far future”, but I see Counterparty working better than it is today which should result in even more usage than we see today. I see Counterparty becoming more compatible with improvements made to Bitcoin and we’ll see hundreds of thousands of assets.
How will you market XCP?
I believe the job description of Community Director is to be a community member extraordinaire more than it is marketing as such. I think Community Directors should represent the interests of community members, existing projects, help on-board new developers and users, and dissuade scammers.
Do you believe smart contracts are useful?
I believe that smart contracts will find an efficiency, but I do not think you’ll like that efficiency. The same way most banks aren’t too excited about the major efficiency of Bitcoin itself: regulatory arbitrage / dark markets. I am concerned about the ability of the Counterparty system to support smart contracts since the number of federated servers is at best measured in dozens, and smart contracts may introduce a great deal of new bugs and halting instability across that system.
What you believe are future XCP price, lot of higher than now or staying low? And why.
I do not know about the future XCP price.
You all answer for question “If I you are elected”, but if you are not, do you think do some work to help Counterparty?
I do not understand.
As stated earlier, I do not believe this is a major role of community directors, but I feel like content creation is the best form of marketing and I am a content creator.
BTW - I am Dan Anderson.
