Follow up after our launch call yesterday:
- Though we are concerned about the likelihood of messaging issues if we scale to, say, 5,000k+ users…
- And the
merit exact dependability of Waku is unproven, with more information to come within 2 weeks…
- Carl & Jarrad are onboard with a full launch pre-Waku.
- Jonny & team are preparing responses for known issues that may crop up.
- And overall, we feel confident that we’re delivering a drastically improved version of Status from the beta that our community is familiar with.
The marketing plan includes press in crypto-centric publications, our traditional social channels, support from the ambassadors and a few AMAs and interviews with Carl & Jarrad.
To support the launch, we’ve prepared a user guide, added a glossary to the profile screen, and we are updating the FAQ.
We have data on unique peer IDs (roughly equivalent to users or at least their devices) ready to monitor.
Chu, Sergey, Andre and I are joining forces to test open PRs today.
When we go live, we’ll offer user support in #status in a fairly ad hoc fashion. I’m in Asia, the bulk of the team is in Europe, André/Corey/Jonny are on the east coast, and I believe Andy is even on the west coast—so if we all agree to check #status a few times a day, we’ll be well covered.
Questions, concerns, etc. welcome.
