Rebranding to improve the tech
« on: October 31, 2017, 06:53:51 am »
Hi, I am one of the many new groestlcoin investors. It has been pointed out on the groestlcoin subrredit, other subreddits, 4chan, ... that GRS's name and logotype look terrible. I know there is a rebranding planned for mid 2018 because the devs want to focus on tech for now. I also think this is the most important aspect but I think the tech could benefit with the rebranding. If you rebranded GRS, its value would go 2x or 3x compared to non-rebranded, IMHO, devs could then sell some GRS and use the profits to hire more devs. The only thing that makes vertcoin 10x as big is the looks, IMHO.

It would be great to have a place where we could vote on changes where our voting rights are equal to the amoun of GRS owned, like bitcoin has. Is there someone doing this already?

Yes, also:
https://www.reddit.com/r/groestlcoin/comments/79t5ma/devs_need_to_rebrand_the_coin_asap/

Well, if you had a vote less than a year ago and most people wanted to keep the name... I see that 40% of the coins are owned by the top 20 wallets (excluding bittrex - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grs/#!wallets). As I assume this belongs mainly to the developers, I believe you have a majority stake and therefore you decide  :-X

Developers dont hold the majority of the coins.
We dont know who those top 20 coin holders are.

I haven't seen any donation addresses so far. If I may ask, the dev team makes a living with the capital gains of GRS?

Fair question, Tia. There is an AMA with Jackie today. See if you can catch it.

Forthcoming HF

For some days, I'll be collating material on the HF. Right now, working patiently over the main article here, and the four 'inset' articles: https://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-bitcoin2x-news-guides-navigate-novembers-fork/

If you pass through here, please leave your thoughts on how we're gonna navigate the HF.

Are you planning on creating a Donation button at all, Jackie? Maybe give an option to people who want to show gratitude or something.
