Tl;DR this is a request for ideas. How can we facilitate people obtaining SNT. Owning cryptocurrency is essential to unlock value of Status Core app. This becomes more prominent as we remove Chosen names in Chat, making it more desireable to buy an ENS name for people who want to be recognized and found in Chat (and in a transaction recipient list). What are ways Status can facilitate people obtaining SNT, next to buying.
SNT to unlock the value of Status Core app
How can we facilitate a journey that allows people to get the most out of Status?
To get the most out of Status I see 3 requirements:
- People need to know what the value is
- People need to find purpose in this value
- People need to have the means to unlock the value
#1 is addressed through our online presence, marketing efforts, app/play store content and our revamped onboarding.
#2 relies on our product-market fit and problem-solution fit.
#3 relies on our product design. How well do we enable people to unlock the value of Status Core app?
Chat, dapps/browser, wallet provide the basic functionality, not the value itself. To unlock the value of each, people need ETH, to unlock the value of chat, they need SNT.
Teller Network will help people buy ETH, SNT and other cryptocurrencies. How else can we help people obtain SNT?
Please expand with your ideas
Earn, win, collect, ask
- SNT reactions in chat
- Bug reports
- Sell (TTT is a great way of monetizing/selling attention, but requires ETH and SNT to set if I’m not mistaken)
_a) I’m mostly thinking of novice users. Advanced users will likely own crypto already that they can convert. We might only want to point them to an exchange post-onboarding, dap.ps already makes this pretty straightforward. _
b) Focusing on SNT, as we might we can potentially use one of @3esmit 's magical contracts to allow buying ENS with SNT only.
