Community AMA #1
On July 7th 2021, 5pm UTC, the three founders of ethbox sat together with their community manager Thom, and held the very first ethbox Community AMA.
Lukas Schiefer, Lukas Pratschner and Paul Simode took all the time and diligence to answer a selection of 15 questions that were submitted by their enthusiastic community.
To keep this curiosity & desire for more ethbox saturated, regular monthly Community AMAs are now a fixed part of what goes on in the ethbox Community Channel at @ethbox_official.
Without further ado:
Welcome to our first official AMA on our community channel everyone! 🌞
To participate to AMA on different communities is needed for people to learn about ethbox but we also know how important it is for a project to be close from its community.
From now on we’ll have at least 1 AMA per month on this channel.
No matter if upcoming months will also be busy, we’ll find AMA time for you in this channel, on top of other channels! 🍻
3 parts AMA:
2. Team will answer 15 most common submited questions.
3. Group will be unmuted for you to ask whatever questions coming to your mind.
Hello everyone :) Thanks for being with us :D
Hello Sir Thom ;)
Hello everybody, santé 😎🥂 (;D) ! Excited to have our first ethbox-ama :) 💪
You know, usually we’d start off with something like “thanks for having us over”, haha 😂 This obviously doesn’t do it on this very special occasion. Thanks for being with us on this absolute first-timer, our very first own community-internal AMA! :)) ✌️
Also, a very highly-esteemed tip of the hat to today’s “host” & moderator, Thom, for the incredible job he’s doing for our community, and just as much “having us over” today :)))
Vamos whenever you’re ready!
How about a quick core team introduction to start with?
Tell us more about yourself & why you decided to create ethbox.
I think no long words needed here for the most of you, but for those new to our community: Hello & welcome to ethbox :)
My name is Lukas Pratschner, I’m facing all organisational, business regarded & legal regards in which ethbox is involved or plans to be. Lukas and me are also permanently working on business development & partnership agendas.
I got my background in the oil&gas chemical engineering and quality management. I also got years of experiences in the crypto space coming from the FA side of the game.
My name is Lukas Schiefer, Iam 31 years old and in crypto since the beginning of 2017.
Since one of my first tx was a “lost transaction” i knew the risk of blockchains from day 1. Since then i heard it over and over again that people where losing funds so we knew there is something missing… After we sat together and talked about different possibilites we came up with the idea by solving this issue with the power of ethereum-smartcontracts ❤️
The friendship between the 3 of us has lasted already for more than 15 years and during this time we have learned a lot together and about ourselves as a team.
Those of you that have already been with us for some part of our journey probably know that the three of us, we’re basically very close group of real-life friends from Austria.
Lukas, Lukas & I have been acquainted for more than 15 years, we’ve gone through a lot together, both professionally in various experiences we’ve made in diverse fields of work, and on a personal level, growing a strong foundation of mutual unbreakable trust, which we find is essential for doing a proper job in anything you set your mind on, anything that really matters a lot to you, that you have to get done — Like ethbox is to us.
Me, Paul Simode, 31 years old, I’m the one in charge with all the technical & creative aspects of our project. I’ve always been “that one kid (later ‘guy’, haha)” who taught himself all kinds of stuff from computer programming to motorcycle engines and foreign languages, so basically solving problems is exactly my kind of thing.
I’ve been programming for almost 20 years now (focus on mostly low-level stuff -> C/C++ and ASM), and I dare to say that I have a rather unique approach at being productive & getting things done. Being new to the blockchain, I quickly picked up smart contract development, and can proficiently say that I like where I’ve found my new “coding home”. ;D
Initially, ethbox was Lukas’ idea, stemming from having one of the biggest fears in crypto life actually happening to him: Losing quite a bunch of money due to a wrong transaction address :O
Long story short, Lukas & Luke brought me to the blockchain world with this great idea they had, and we’re right in the middle of making a proper great thing out of it together! ✊👌
Love your words, Paul. 100% agree!
To fat finger & send funds to a wrong address can happen to the best of us!
No matter how long we’ve been in this space.
So it is, meaning Lukas’s fat fingers ?
How did you know though? 😶😅😂
Hahah kidding, this can happen to literally anyone, even with copy-pasting (unlikely, but still, imagine having that happen to you Oo)
Shall we start to answer questions submited?
Ready when you are! ✌️
A strong community not only brings interesting ideas to the project but also attracts larger partners. So how is ethbox planning to build its community? And is there a plan to recruit people with Blockchain experience to the ethbox team?
That’s one main reason for being here right now. We got a small community but a strong one, that’s what we want to focus on. Thanks goes out to all of our strong supporters. Thats why we came up with the idea to have an AMA with OUR community, to take care of their regards — to take care of YOU, folks. A small but strong community is much more worth than a big and „weak“ one.
Besides that we had some community activities in the past + there is an event incoming. Let me refer to it here, gimme a moment pls! :)
There is so much more incoming …. Some of our strong supporters already know a bit more what’s incoming!
All of that is bounded to our new way to face marketing actions :)
I think all 3 of us learned a lot in the past month & we really want to push that regards much more further!
Regarding recruitment the only thing I can say right now is, that we are looking for marketing knowledge based people.
About recruiting people with experience bringing value to ethbox, hello to Fredo
We are working with another new & great agency beside the old ones.
We had lessons to learn on those regards!
Much love for @FredoCorleone
Best example :)
Can’t miss a single chance to give him a shoutout: That man is a f*cking beast and a legend! For those of you who weren’t here when it all started, Fredo basically started taking apart my code that I had written for our first Testnet Beta all by himself, and simply presented me solutions, just like that! 👌
He didn’t wait for anything, or beat around the bush, he simply showed up with complete solutions for issues that the web interface had at that time. It was more than obvious that we had to team up, and now he’s the one in charge of our website at www.ethbox.org (he made it! cheers! 🍻) & all the front-end interface for the ethbox smart contract that’s in it. :))) ✊✌️
What are the ways that ethbox project generates profits/revenue to maintain your project & what is its revenue model ? How can it make benefit win-win to both investors & your project?
ethbox has already some different revenue streams and there are even more coming up in the not so distant future. One of them is obviously that we are generating a fee when ethbox service gets used. For now Mainnet light is completly free to use but with our upcoming Mainnet v2 the service will cost a fee.
Another one of the revenue streams is for example we are offering our staking-model as a service.
We have already a project using our model and paying a monthly fee and some more are already interessted.
As i said before there are some more features/service upcoming which will generate some revenue as well.
The generated Fee will then be split into 4 parts:
25% profit for ethbox
25% for constant marketing
25% will be used to buy back EBOX and burn
and 25% will be used a payout to our tokenholders.
Our users and owners will therefore benefit just as much as ethbox, in order to offer a fair incentive. So there are 2 ways holders can benefit — the value of EBOX (since more people are joining ethbox the token will get scarce by buying ebox) and on the other hand if people just use ethbox-service they will benefit through the buyback& burn mechanism and the payout. So i would say thats a Win-win situation.
Oh and beside all of the token utilities we have some more “incentives” and rewards for token holder ready, for example the liq provider bonus programm, some early adopter games or some other campaigns which will be active in the future.
Point is we know its about giving the investors some value back and we will definitely give our best to fullfill their needs.
Anyway Feedback/tips/critics , they are all welcomed since they can help us to make ethbox even better :)
Ah, by the way, regarding that “staking as a service” thing you mentioned:
It’s been probably already spoken about on the channel etc, but hasn’t been explicitly mentioned. We’ll be announcing separately, so anyone who’s interested can get the news, but here goes (for now):
We are actually — no joke — already offering our lock-less staking model to another crypto project, that we’ve been connected with through our supporters & partners since day 0 at DuckDAO.
Please ignore what you’d possibly think of the token’s meaning / value / etc and simply see the fact that another project with active users has effectively put the ethbox logo on their site, and everyone claiming his staking reward through them has to pass our logo every time when claiming or checking staking rewards!
Another DuckDAO project is also potentially interested in this, we’ll be disclosing more at a later point.
Most important of all, this paves the way to a whole new branch of business that we hadn’t even thought of in the first place — You’ve surely heard of “Ferrum” when it comes to staking, and from now on, there’s a new name in the staking service game, and that one is ours: ethbox! ✊
Does your project also provide a platform for DEX, STAKING & Farming in the future? To increase profits for token holders? When do you think of integrating other blockchains into the project like BSC, HECO? Any plans for higher coverage?
As you’ve seen with the example of staking as a service that I’ve just portrayed, chances & opportunities can come to us from the most unexpected directions. We’re open to anything that’s meaningful & enriching to our community, and brings benefit to people using the crypto space in their daily lives! :)
One of those opportunities that also arose quite recently is the idea of an OTC market. OTC trading had been part of ethbox since the beginning, but this is a rather novel thing. Basically it enables users to put up a trade requeest that everyone on the ethbox platform can see & fulfill.
This kinda vibes along the lines of DEX-y business, even if it’s obviously not the same. We’ll see where this takes us, how we can fulfill our users’ wishes & ideas combined with our own core vision for ethbox, etc… :))
In any case, we’re absolutely positive we’ve all (not just the three of us) done a tremendous job together so far, and we’ll be continuing on our way until we achieve the very last of our goals (and there’s plenty — but they’re all absolutely doable). Stay with us & bear witness! 💜✊
As for other blockchains, yeah, we’ve already been on BSC since we launched our early Testnet, and we’ve also recently extended ethbox to Polygon (formerly Matic). What’s reeeally going to be interesting though is when we get to implementing solutions such as Polkadot, Solana etc, those are going to open up entire new universes of possibilities fo ethbox.
These are all perfectly doable things, smaller or larger steps, each of which gradually increases our influence, spread & people’s awareness thereof inside the crypto space.
So many Rug Pulls happening nowdays & almost 75% project with anonymous team do rug pulled. How can we sure that you are not like them and we can invest in your project safely?
That one was funny to read!
Oh yes :D
But it is kind of understandable, crypto is still Wild West !
ethbox is a project which is heavily needed in the crypto-space, its not about being a “meme-coin” or some money grab stuff..
We launched directly with our testnet- version of ethbox and since 30.June our Mainnet light is live.
ethbox is growing day by day and we have included already a lot of new tips from the community which should show that there is more than just being an investment. It should be a project for the community and FROM the community… Might sound generic but i am sure time will tell and more and more people have our vision.
ethbox should and will be a service which will assist a lot of people and make their life easier.
So yeah.. there is no reason for a rug pull, there is so much more to achieve and even tho the path might be sometime little bit stony — its really great to see this thing evolve :)
That’s exactly that… Honestly, if we had any malicious intention, we’d be idiots not to have rug-pulled already. We don’t do that kind of stuff, and we’re not here for that.
Everything we do is rooted in a deep sense of transparency and fairness. Obviously, noone except for us can know this, because you people don’t know us in real life (yet?), but oftentimes we figure out how to do things, we also have discussions, arguments, and can’t agree sometimes. Then, in the end when we sort it out, it’s always in such a way that it’s fair & mutually beneficial for everyone involved. It just doesn’t make any sense to be doing things where one profits, and the other doesn’t (to us at least).
This can be seen in everything we do as ethbox… All the things we provide & present are transparent and can be double-checked by anyone. Our smart contract is audited, and the source code has been published on the various blockchain explorers (Etherscan, BscScan, PolygonScan). If there’s anything unclear or doesn’t feel transparent enough, ever, people can ask us & we’ll gladly answer up, whatever the question is! ✌️
On a more technical note: It has been brought to our attention that it’s usual practice for crypto projects to be burning or locking their LP tokens (from providing the initial liquidity on Uniswap / PancakeSwap).
We kinda disagree with burning, but locking definitely sounds like a proper thing to do, in order to maximize trustability and give away any form of control that could be abused, simply so people have to trust us as little as possible.
Maybe you’ve heard of Unicrypt — They’re offering a set of blockchain services, such as the possibility of locking away your LP tokens inside a smart contract…
Figuring this is a really simple thing to achieve with a smart contract, we’ll be coding a token locker ourselves, and will be offering it to our community as a service. We haven’t agreed on the exact details yet (will probably have a small fee that decreases with amount of EBOX held), but that’s that.
(Speaking of untapped opportunities, such as staking as a service, here’s another one! :D 👌)
(One that we’ll be using ourselves eventually, which is why we’re doing it in the first place: Long story short, we’ll be locking away our LP tokens in a perfectly transparent smart contract, that everyone can double-check!)
ethbox is only functional for ERC-20 tokens at launch. Are there any developments/plans ongoing for other main protocols?
I think the others have answered that question already, but to repeat in short words:
This is not entirely correct, as we have now implemented one or the other extension. ethbox works on the following networks:
And new in our portfolio 🚀
- POLYGON (formerly MATIC)
We definitely have our eye on Polkadot and Solana. Other protocols will follow, but we are currently focusing on our mainnet. We will update our roadmap very soon, there will be some more information. We are always looking for further expansions on much more upcoming & long functional networks. Nothing new to share by now, but we’ll take every expansion opportunity, as long as its possible from a technical point of view. But our devs are some kind of masterminds from my perspective — so fasten your seatbelts!
Since recipients needs the right passphrase to access the funds in Ethbox smart contract, is the pass-phrase stored on Ethbox network? How does Ethbox verify the validity of the passphrase to know it’s the right one?
Ahh, I love it, that’s my kind of question! :D One that can be answered simply & straight-forward, just like the essence of ethbox!
In programming & the mathematics behind it, there is something called “hashing”. This basically means that you take some value A, and calculate another value B out of it, in a special way.
The special way goes like this: You can always do A →B, but when you have only B, you can not go from B →A.
When someone sends a box through ethbox, all the relevant transaction data is stored inside the ethbox smart contract. The passphrase however is only stored as a hash.
Why? Because everyone can see what’s going on in the blockchain at any time, so any info inside any smart contract is publicly available. However, when there’s a hashed value of something, it’s mathematically impossible to decipher it & find out what the original value (= passphrase, in our case) was.
Additionally (I left that out for simplicity’s sake), the passphrase gets hashed twice actually. This is needed so that there is never a clear-text passphrase submitted across the internet — Whenever that passphrase you chose when sending a box gets sent out into the world wide web, it has already been hashed, so that it’s impossible for any possible hacker etc to find out the original passphrase. 👌
Then, when the legitimate recipient comes and wants to pick up that box, he submits the single-hashed passphrase to the ethbox contract, which is then hashed another time & compared to the double-hashed passphrase that has been previously stored by the sender.
What is the utility of your native token EBOX? Also, What special features do you have or plan to implement that keeps you ahead of your competitors?
There are few different utilities for EBOX like:
- reduced fees
- and payout
Beside that ethbox has a deflationary system, part of the generated fee will be used for buy back and to burn EBOX
I think there are different tokens where you can find part of these features, but EBOX has all of them combined ;D
Maybe the so-called “small” things make ethbox special… like how we are handeling the governance (by a fair formula) or trying to find a simple and safe way to implement staking. (like our “lock-less” system ;D)
Nevertheless i personally do not think its about having special features, i think its about being useful and actually having the product being used.
Different groups need different services, so it is very important to offer customized solutions for everyone and to offer them this service is what makes us unique.
How do you plan to spread awareness about your project in different countries where English is not good? Do you have local communities like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Korea,.. so they can better understand your project?
We are definitely aware that English is not everyone’s native language. We definitely want to spread awareness. At the moment splitting our f.e. TG community doesn’t make any sense, because we want to concentrate on our current base (as already mentioned) & strengthen what we already have.
In the future this will definitely be the case!
I see a lot other communities smaller than ours, which have groups for every language or nation.
We definitely know that we have to promote our marketing towards the Asian market. Things are being planned and will also be tackled, but as I said: We now want to concentrate on our basis, consolidate it and above all EXPAND it. Until further notice: in English :)
Personally i think at first we need to grow more before we open up more community-channels in different languages. The problem is if you split up a “small” group in even smaller ones they tend to be dead channels .. at least reagarding telegram
Nevertheless we will reach out to different communities. Personally i really like the idea of having ethbox presented on different youtube channels in different languages, and as soon as our referral system is in play — than its the right time to get onto that :)
Very nice to see Fortmatic as an option. We mostly see Metamask and Wallet Connect. How many wallets will you integrate into the platform at the end of 2021?
We can’t exactly be naming a number here or anything, aside from our general intention to be expanding, raising awareness & furthering mainstream adoption of ethbox as much as possible — Obviously, well-known services such as Coinbase Wallet, MyEtherWallet and Binance Chain Wallet, along with hardware wallets like Ledger and Trezor are along our top priority with what we want to implement…. :))
Other than that, and actually a lot more interesting & meaningful to ethbox the way we see it… Is our own MetaMask-like browser extension / wallet service!
What we want (need!) to do is give people the possibility of integrating ethbox into their daily flow of using crypto / DeFi services, sending funds etc. This has to be as simple & straight-forward as possible, just like sending a transaction through MetaMask.
Imagine being able to send crypto through a browser extension like you do with MetaMask, except that it goes straight through ethbox, and you can revert transactions at any moment if you need to! 👌
[ Approving GIF ]
Save it for when we’ve genuinely earned it, this one’s a total no-brainer, hahah… :)))
All right then! I’ll keep it safu in my gif bank for later
😂👌 Thanks for your confidence, you could just have taken it back permantenly and that’s that, haha :))
I’ve seen that you have a partnership with DuckDao. How will this strategic partnership help Ethbox ecosystem and growth? And will you continue to develop partnerships with projects that solve other real-world problems?
Yes we have a strong relationship with the Ducks.
Regarding them, they are really very well connected to all different kind of people and projects and like chihua or to others they are really helping us to connect to them.
We will soon have another AMA in their group too as well.
Beside all off the connections, there are different services which can and will hopefully be used by the ducks and their groups ;D
And yes we are already with some other projects in talk and we are definitely looking for more.
The field is big and so the opportunities.
Right now its about getting connected to different projects and spreading the word. There are lot of communities out there waiting for a service what ethbox is offering. So if our community has some projects in their mind….we are always open to look into it and get in touch with them. :)
If the country you live in wants to control the ethbox system you have built or asks you to turn it off, what would you do?
Unfortunately, it is relatively difficult to make a forecast on this. This industry is constantly changing and is becoming more relevant in real life every day. As we are now noticing, more and more countries are starting to deal with digital currencies. We will not leave ethbox to government institutions and will do everything in the future to remain compliant in legal matters.
We got a good standing right now and we strive for evolution here as well.
For now everything regarding legals & compliance is good to go, and the perfect base to expand our services legally!
+ there is no way they can turn ethbox off, we will do EVERYTHING to protect ethbox and there will always be possibilites to run this business. If it means to move out of this country like now a lot of miners are moving out of china.. then here we go! no reason to stick to specific country IMO
+1 — Totally agree, nothing will bring down ethbox! ✊
Can you explain how privacy is achieved through ethbox? Are there any additional features or changes incoming that will help further this privacy feature?
Paul will jump in 😉
:))) I was just gaining momentum, hahah
So, first and foremost: ethbox offers privacy by its very nature. Sending funds through a smart contract is always less direct than sending funds from A to B, so that’s one thing.
Obviously though, in the most basic scenario, it can still be traced back through Etherscan (etc) who sent funds to whom, both because it’s easy to puzzle together when someone deposits (for example) 1.337 ETH, and someone withdraws exactly 1.337 ETH — and also because all the transaction data is sent to the smart contract in clear-text (except for the passphrase of course, as elaborated above).
… Which is where the first part of our privacy feature steps in, the one that’s already live in our ethbox Mainnet Light and can be used free of charge for now:
When using the privacy feature, instead of writing the sender & recipient addresses to the contract in clear-text, those get hashed too, just like the passphrase. This means that it becomes impossible to realize through Etherscan (etc) who is sending funds to whom, just by looking at the transaction that created the box (= deposited the funds).
This alone doesn’t do it entirely though — We have a new feature coming up that allows users to partially withdraw boxes.
What this means & what this is good for becomes clear immediately:
Take this scenario for example — Someone sends you 1.337 ETH through ethbox, through a privacy-enabled box. Now, if you would just withdraw 1.337 ETH in one go, everyone would know that you & the sending person are somehow affiliated / belong together / etc.
With the upcoming partial withdraw feature, you could simply take just 0.123 ETH, then again 0.234 ETH at another point, then later 0.123 ETH again, etc etc. Noone could really puzzle together that you & the sender belong together, and boom, you’re anonymous. 👌
How can we earn maximum APY on staking in Ethbox especially in the long term? What measures do the project take in order to achieve it like avoiding impermanent loss?
For our staking we have a specific formula to calculate their sharerate and so the APY.
At first there are 2 major levels which are those who hold 5000 EBOX up to 50k.
Everybody who holds more than 50k has a general multiplier of 2x.
Beside that there are multipliers like providing liquidity, holding one of our partner coins (DDIM/DUCK) or our long-term bonus.
You can earn up to 50% more, long-term stakers get a growing bonus on their share rate. The bonus then stays constantly peaked at the highest level until staking ends, or one decides to leave the staking program.
The long-term bonus gets stacked over 10 months and you are getting 5% per month extra.
You can find the exact details in our staking-article https://ethbox.medium.com/introducing-ebox-staking-rewards-4c65c07fc89d
But anyway we will release in the future some statistic how the staking was till that date. We think there are some really interesting dates in it. 😊
Regarding impernant loss, we have different incentives like the liq provider bonus program.
Nevertheless providing liq has some risk involved.
Talking about risks & security… 👇
Smart contracts are known to be susceptible to errors, bugs or hacks. So How is the Ethbox security system composed? In addition, has any audit report been made by sources external to your project?
Fortunately, like most of the time in life, there’s multiple sides to things. There’s risk that you can’t do all too much about, like the one involved when providing liquidity… And risk that can be simply avoided, that’s a mere technicality.
Starting a journey in your car with a flat tire and an engine close to failure is a good example for the kind of risk that can be eeeeeeasily mitigated, or even avoided altogether. Another such risk is the risk that goes along with deploying a smart contract.
Smart contracts are computer programs, and as such, they do what they’re programmed to do. The vast majority of “risks” in the world of computers comes from people not really knowing what they do. Possibilities for exploiting software come from people building things with holes in them, but not being aware of those.
Personally coming from a background of low-level programming (C/C++ and Assembly mostly, as stated before) and being involved with highly security-specific programming / coding / reverse engineering etc, I benefit from a background that’s very essential to developing something that is as unlikely as possible to ever be doing anything that you didn’t explicitly mean it to do (such as giving funds to some non-validated third-party attacker).
I’m saying “unlikely” here on purpose, because nothing is impossible, which is why in anything critical with computers, you have to double-check, triple-check, etc etc, as much as you can… Which is where our renowned & well-trusted security partners at CertiK Foundation step in. Both our token contract (yes, no joke) and the ethbox smart contract have been audited by CertiK, and we’ll continue to be doing audits (with them and / (possibly) or with others) in the future.
Having our code audited is an absolute must, so that’s something you can always bet your bottom dollar on! 👌
How can we help with the marketing of ETHBOX?
Great question! Everyone is invited to spread the word about ethbox. From my experience, people will be enthusiastic as soon as they understand ethbox as a dynamic project and, above all, the intention of our vision!
We will also present a referral system in the near future with the purpose of rewarding OUR people for recommending us. ethbox is open to use — as soon as you have funds to send, use ethbox! Tell your friends and acquaintances to use ethbox! Storms other & active groups and tells about our vision to make Crypto more secure.
If people are using ethbox and are happy with it, growth will certainly not be long in coming. We’ll take care of brand marketing and it’s in progress, but YOU are in demand on social media! Twitter, Reddit, Instagram & Facebook is the place where you can be active! Retweet and share our updates, link to ethbox.org and spread the word! I can only express my deepest thanks again to all our active members! Once again! Without you we wouldn’t be where we are now!
Totally — The one biggest thing all you guys & girls out there can do to support our common vision, if you care & want to give us a hand… Spread the word! Let your friends know of ethbox, shill us to your favorite crypto channels, and help get people used to using ethbox for transactions.
We’re already live on Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain & Polygon (formerly Matic), and even free to use for the next one month plus a little — Check us out at www.ethbox.org if you haven’t yet, and start making some use of what we’ve created so far! :)) ✊
My T̶i̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ ̶d̶a̶t̶e̶ Uber Eat order is on its way 🙂
Time for the third part of our AMA. Let’s unmute the channel.
Feel free to ask questions which haven’t been previously answered.
Channel has been unmuted, hit us hard! ✌️
I got the answers to the questions in my head. Thanks team.
[In reply to Emre Koşun] :))) That was unexpected, glad to hear that man!
Haha seems it took too long, everyone saturated & happy :D
[In reply to Emre Koşun] I can guess rightly the question that is yours from the list😁
Love the project.. Ethbox solves a pain point that resonates with anyone in crypto.
Great AMA guys! Thanks for replying my question
Question: What’s your grounds/principles when choosing a partner to ensure ethbox’s success
[In reply to Sophia] Question 11 was mine. 🤓😁😎
[In reply to Do] Thanks for the support! ❤️ very much appreciated!
Slightly Awesome Blueberry
We know you’ve been working on a marketing push for some time, but what can we expect around the time of the full mainnet launch and Certik Audit completion (August 15th)
[In reply to Emre Koşun] Thank you so much for participating aaaaand haha, we assumed it was you :D
haha 😂 Thank you for your good wishes.
[In reply to Shaira _CryptoFan] It’s important that there is actually a real usecase to implement ethbox as a service
In the end the most important thing is that our EBOXERs benefit from the partnership.
Sometimes things move slowly since these projects are focused to develop their products and with most projects we have partnered they are still very early.
The best thing is if they feel the vision of ethbox and we can successfully build some great stuff together.
[In reply to Slightly Awesome Blueberry] On one side, part of it is currently in the marketing — We’re in the middle of working out a comprehensive strategy with this new agency we’ll be partnering with (more to be disclosed soon, no date for now though), as to elaborating who our target audiences are, where to find those & how to reach out to them, etc etc.
Aside from that, the way we see it, marketing is an organic process that constantly grows and evolves with the project. With community incentives such as our early adopter reward that will be starting shortly, and new ideas (such as this community AMA) being realized constantly, we think we’re on a good path here. :)) 👌
Having specifically mentioned the full Mainnet launch in August, obviously this is a huge major milestone for us, and we’re getting ready to rub this all over internet people’s faces (in a positive, non-obtrusive way, hahah 😶😂)!
If someone send me the ethbox demo video in slide format. I can translate it into Turkish and upload it to youtube as a short informative video.
[In reply to Emre Koşun] Check, noted! Thanks for the generous offer! :D👌
Alright, so I guess we’ve properly saturated everyone that was here with us tonight, with all the ethbox info you could’ve ever wished for (for now) — And if there’s anything left that you’re curious about, you know where to find us! :)) ✌️
So yes, I’d say this concludes tonight’s AMA, we’re through on my watch — Guys?
AMA started 3 hours ago, longer than expected :)
It isn’t something we’re doing everyday so we took appropriate time to answer your questions.
