I’m doing pretty well with some trades over there. Good job for getting this over the line everyone.

Great job getting us on the new exchange!

I’m just curious. Since this fundraiser was successful, would anyone be interested in trying this again with another exchange sometime later this year? After we all have a chance to financially recuperate of course.

Would any current pledgers be interested in doing something like this again? It would be nice if we could use this method to expand access to Peercoin over time. A new target every 6 or so months for example.

Personally I’ve been collecting PPC for 10 years now and I feel like I might be getting to a point where it makes better sense for me to start using my money to help improve Peercoin instead, things like advertising or donating toward expanding exchange access. I can’t keep buying and collecting forever. At some point I need to start investing in the ecosystem myself to help push things forward so Peercoin can gain more attention from outsiders. Does anyone else feel the same way?

I think this Mexc fundraiser was a good one because of Bittrex and SouthX closures. The community saw a need for a replacement. Timing was perfect. Moving forward, I dont think there is a big difference in having 10 exchanges with low liquidity or 11. It’s not a desperate situation anymore. UNLESS we are talking about Coinbase? Now that is something I would get behind again… When Coinbase?

Big thank you to Maverick! Im not sure if this would have got over the line without your generosity. Cheers!

Thank you Jack! Much appreciated. I feel that my pledge was basically my first legit contribution to this project though. It took a lot of effort by others to get to this point.
And I am onboard with trying to get on another exchange. Of course Coinbase would be the best for me (being US-based), but open to any others.
Yea there prob isn’t much difference between being on 10 vs 11 exchanges. But 2 vs 1 is huge. My anecdotal thinking says 4-5 is a good number… Good diversification paired with risk tolerance if 1-2 of the exchanges goes down.

While we are still working on satisfying the technical requirements to get on Coinbase [port of btcd (almost done!) and rosetta], I do think we would have a much better chance of them acknowledging us if we were on some other large exchanges besides MEXC and were able to display a higher trade volume.

I’d chip in for a Coinbase application, maybe for a second smaller exchange if it serves a strategic purpose.
