Where are the individuals asking for votes located?
I am located in New York City
What do the individuals plan to do specifically with the foundation?
I plan to fulfill my duties as established by the Counterparty bylaws to the best of my ability with the end goal of promoting counterparty use and adoption. I would also like to work on educational outreach as part of this goal producing point of sale marketing materials that explains what counterparty is, and what it can do in easy to understand language with graphics.
What are the most important issues for them and how will they tackle these specific issues?
Teaching people why they may want to use Counterparty and how they can use it if they choose.
Getting BTC pair transactions to somehow ‘work’ better on the DEx. I am not a developer though so I am open to suggestions and testing
Collecting funds for an org with generalized concepts but no detailed plans or goals makes it difficult to assess future accountability and integrity.
Counterparty has a roadmap (https://counterparty.io/roadmap/), I think it’s a relatively well detailed plan, although I am open to expanding it. I also don’t see my role as primarily to collect funds, it would be nice but I don’t think fundraising in the end all be all of my service as a community director.
You have $5000 in funds that must be spent within your first month at the new foundation. Break down how you would use those funds and why.
$3,500 on servers and infrastructure. J Dog has indicated he, out of pocket, pays about ~$500 USD a month to keep some of the nuts and bolts of Counterparty going. My understanding is one of the reasons for freewallet is still ‘locked’ without and access token is because unlocking it for the masses would increase these costs. If we assume $500 a month that pays the bills for 7 months.
$1,000 Educational Point of Sale Marketing Materials – these can be distributed for free via post to anyone who submits and application that they want to distribute them at a meetup or conference event. These will last for a while and getting them printed on demand vastly increases the cost and considering we have to spend the money I think it’s a good investment to go a little bigger and have them sitting around.
$250 on setting up and funding a Counterparty (the non-profit organization) exchange account that is legally compliant for use of currency conversion by the foundation.
$250 misc money for fees, petty cash, ideas open to entire community. Why? Gotta have some fun and occasionally pay some fees to move $
