« on: October 29, 2019, 05:11:58 AM »
One Problem is that all  Amiga related Innovations go out from AROS ..64 Bit SMP and so on how can we attract money to AROS so that the Developers get benefit for the Innovations they do?

I am sorry to say but I am afraid you are very, very misinformed.

Ask AROS users? Afterall, AROS users are the only ones who benefit from major AROS innovations.

I tend to try to plant money trees.  So far none bear any fruit.   So instead what I do is find projects that interest me.  Speak with developers and work out a budget.

I believe Amiga 68K is stealing the show for now.

Vampire and Aros 68K is a boost.
Pi native would be the next boost.
Hopefully Aros 64 bit would be second if not third.

Well I still offer to fund development with telos .. itís passive income .. i just need someone to take care about (foundation ? Club ? Moving funds to bounties ? https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/teloscoin/ also whenever I come in touch with Amiga forums it ends with a bitchfight which is annoying.

Funding development requires reasonably stable currencies or you risk developers jumping ship (rapid loss of value) or being incentivized to delay completion of projects (cryptocoin hype phase) due to severe value fluctuations. So, unless you pick a cryptocurrency that is pegged to real-world currencies and / or physical assets, you would probably have to convert crypto assets before assigning a developer in order to avoid these type of problems.

Must be because of that famous German pride of yours :-)

At least you did not have to endure a business owner create a fake troll account, try to negotiate terms for development work on a public internet forum, then get upset and flatout insulting after not being taken seriously in the slightest.

Ohh my .. : )
About the fluctuation .. you are right but Telos is kept back before it flies .. currently the gain pressure is there and we can not prevent it for very long.

In other words .. now is more or less the last chance to join in order to run masterndodes and do staking .. after that it becomes expensive.

This way the value increase of crypto (volatility) can be even better .. last day it was only a donation of 100Ä and next day it is 1000 worth and May convince to take it

We have two things to use telos directly:
You can fill debitcards (money spendablem everywhere accepting MasterCards)
You can buy vouchers (wunschgutscheine and so on)

This is for every day stuff very handy.

For the exchange to vouchers we need to pay usdt (stable coin). Excactly because of the mentioned volatility. (PolisPay app 8.0 next week adds coinswapping to cover this)

Whatever .. being payed is one thing .. the rewards coming in passively covers work which may not be ĄPR relevantď .. like boring things. It takes out the succespressure and lets people work on aros or other amiganoid systems.

Target is one dollar .. we are slowly reaching 1 Cent .. there is still room.

And the starter package is a free to take offering from me. Itís not mining .. takes not much resources from your computer / raspberry and you gain also by value increase which is programmed as we finished 7 projects in last year and didnít launch one yet of them . Itís my famous AbreiŖkalendertaktik .. BTW we have also 3 unreleased Amiga games .. but somehow I am again not in the mood for Amigaforums : )

I am choleric .. yep .. I apologize but it needs an impulse .. and somehow itís easy to get those.

Hmm 🤔 why is that. Are we still kids : )

Also an easy and clean option for P2P would be to have 2 pools for a bounty. One in Euro and one in crypto.
