Telegram Asks Court to Deny SEC’s Gram-Related Injunction

https://dcebrief.com/telegram-asks-court-to-deny-secs-gram-related-injunction/


This will be interesting to watch as it unfolds and compare to Ethereum. My understanding was that the Grams were sold to verified accredited investors only under a Reg D like exception. Telegram then claiming once the platform is released, those Grams would be distributed and now be utility tokens to be used on their platform, much like Ethereum. Once they are distributed and land on exchanges everyone will be able to buy and sell them, not just accredited investors. Interested to see if this logic will hold up.

To those who control the fate of DNotes, I come to you today with a few questions that are far beyond my abilities to surmise answers for. We've witnessed a gradual degradation in value, and any popular support that DNotes once enjoyed appears to have vanished. If I were to use a metaphor to characterize the DNotes blockchain it would likely involve tumbleweeds.

If Next Gen Hero was supposed to be the best thing for DNotes, then why haven't any results come to fruition? Should we expect to see results in the near future? In July you were touting close contact with thousands of women who wanted to participate in HERO; what is your conversion rate on these leads into current paid memberships?

Given your current revenue and expenditures, approximately how far away from bankruptcy is DNotes Global (in months)? I would feel easy in assuming that since you are giving us no metric to guage the success of the DNotes ecosystem other than the exchange rate, that the whole venture is an abysmal failure. Please correct me if I am wrong, and feel free to address each point individually without the use of worn out tropes.

As with all things, success doesn't happen over night, HERo membership is no exception and will take a great deal of work to make it successful. Our outreach with HERo membership has been limited to date, playing catch up after wrapping up this summers priorities and putting all of our ducks in a row to begin our campaign. Such as live beta testing, fixing bugs, our initial attempt to get some activity going in order to get the demo video and ensure it is not barren for new members as we get them to sign up.

We currently have 63 members, 9 experts, one service provider, and one group. Along with some content, questions, and training courses. It's a good start for getting the membership platform going, but not data that can be used to measure the success rate of HERo membership.

We have also been invited to the Women for Global Change National Conference "Limitless", which we will be attending as media and to represent HERo.

Over the next few months we will be able to get a better reading how well it is received.

Congratulations on the HERo membership introduction video!

Appreciate it wiser! It turned out pretty good and should make for a great introduction to HERo.

FCA Investigations of Crypto Companies Up 74% from 2018

“For cryptocurrency businesses acting lawfully these statistics will be encouraging — they want bad actors pushed out.”

Agreed. As Alan would say, we want DNotes will be one the last few standing.

Dnotes is one of my crypto heartbreaks.
Love this project, have a big bag, and just hate to see it doing so poorly in the markets.

Is there anything on the horizon that can bring some good attention to this project?

Hi CryptoJohn,

Yes, in fact we have just completed our video introduction to HERo membership.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN1TV_ZE728

This platform is multi-purpose and was created to fulfill some of our most important needs, while driving the mission of bridging the gender participation gap in entrepreneurship, technology, fintech, blockchain etc... The highest priority being revenue and funding for the company it needs to progress, while also growing our potential reach and exposure.

What's going on with the BTC/NOTE pair on Mercatox?

Completely stopped trading, crashed the price just when we were eking out some upward momentum. Back to all time lows.

Any plans to develop more exchange relationships? NOTE needs more than just Mercatox listing, right?

Not sure, maybe just a glitch? I don't see a crash in the history on Mercatox, so I assume it was a temporary problem.

Currently our primary exchanges are STEX and Mercatox. Being on more smaller exchanges will not have a significant impact, especially when considering the cost of listing on many of the small exchanges. They generally don't bring you traffic or exposure or volume, or even 'cred'. The smaller exchanges are only active when there are significant arbitrage opportunities or where there are larger exchanges leading, so there is no value added at this time. There may come a time when that does make sense, when DNotes is on an upswing of participation and price, to help the momentum and give us the extra push needed to get on the larger exchanges. Right now it would just be an additional burden to worry about.

A larger and more credible exchange, such as binance, is highly desirable, but those exchanges aren't going to list us without significantly more support and/or significant funds.

Our focus is revenue, funding, and growing our potential user base. All of which will aid in the exchange issue and HERo is the platform that will create the opportunity to grow in all of those areas.


This all makes complete sense. Thanks for the color. I get the big exchange stuff, I mean look at the Digibyte founder unloading at Binance on Twitter the other day, RE: the fees they demanded to be listed. That makes sense.

But didn't see the smaller exchange listing logic as you laid it out. Make sense, especially from a defocusing point of view.

I think it would be a good risk mitigation measure to have at least one other tracked exchange listing DNotes. Mercatox bug one day, cut the price by 50%. Perhaps good to have another one, to mitigate scenarios like this in future, imo. So it's not some big strategic endeavor that takes time from more pressing dev tasks. But rather just a line item task/tactic to provide some downside protection.

We can certainly relate to some of the things Jared has mentioned, and then some. After ICO's started to hit the market it became all about the listing fees, it doesn't matter if it's a decentralized coin, if it raised funds through an ICO etc...

STEX is also reported to CMC, you may just not see that under the CMC NOTE listing as we often don't have enough volume there for CMC's minimum volumes. If that's the concern that only one is listed on CMC, the answer would be to get more people who support DNotes actively trading on STEX.

As of the last time I contacted each of the exchanges, the reasonable ones were around 2 BTC listing pair, many of which are now closed or have disappeared. Open to suggestions.

It is great to see Hero now in live beta. Currently we are building content for the members site, and releasing a few articles for our various web properties, and we will be pushing very hard to bring in paying members after a couple of weeks of operating in live beta to ensure no issues with the functionality of the site (which is looking great).

The resources will be very helpful for women (and anyone) who wants to learn more about business, upskill in areas needed to succeed in business, and people who want to mentor one another, or purchase services from those whose skills they require.



I am looking forward to see the development of the page and paying members coming onboard.

Btw., do you intend to advertise site and membership also outside HERo and DCEBrief pages? I am afraid that without advertising it will be hard to reach out to potential members and get high number of active memberships Undecided

I know that Alan was saying that there is a great interest in the page and membership, but as we had seen in first round of financing, there can be quite a big difference between interest and actual engagement Undecided However, of course I wish you all the best and hope that site will attract great many members Wink

There are a couple of directions we are going to use for marketing HERo membership. From direct marketing as Alan has mentioned, paid advertising, to affiliate marketing and partnering with similar groups/events/conferences to cross promote. From there, we need to evolve by branching out to events and sub chapters to grow rapidly.

If you haven't gone in recently I recommend checking it out. It is starting to populate nicely.

We are working on a video presentation for the membership landing page, so that people will be able to understand the capabilities of HERo membership.

Starting in early October, we will be fully live and in full promotional mode.

HERo Membership Live

HERo membership is now in live beta. We welcome everyone to sign up and start using the platform. Let us know any issues or suggestions you may have to make it a better platform by clicking the Need Help link at the bottom of the membership page or emailing contact@nextgenhero.io.

I have signed up and for now everything is working perfectly Smiley

Did you get a lot of feedback and do you expect that you will have to change a lot of things? When do you expect to go out of Beta and fully launch membership platform?

Hey guys, fun to see this getting off the ground. I registered and went to pay with Dnotes. All my Dnotes are at DNotesVault, so I initiated a withdrawal from the Vault to the address given to me on HERo.

But the withdrawal is 24-48 hours, and HERo is nearly done with a 15 minute counter.

Any plans to integrate payment from the two sites? Or am I doing it wrong (likely).



Appreciate it MiningHabit!

I have activated your account. Those two wouldn't exactly play nicely together as of yet because of DNotesVault delay and security. But eventually that will absolutely be a goal to have integrate with our existing tools and infrastructure, they do need some major upgrades in to make that feasible and secure.

Great! I really appreciate you signing up.

Lots of positive comments and encouragement, it is very well received so far.

My wishlist is extensive, but just improvements that will add to the experience. The core, in my opinion, is very well designed and very capable of building upon what's already there.

As far as moving out of beta - I am now inviting people to join us, we have about 50 members, and if all goes well with no major issues I think another 2 weeks. Then we can go live and really push membership.

Wish you all the best and I hope that many members will sign up and enable the further growth of DNotes Wink

Thanks Amadeus! We aren't quite launched yet. Still in Beta. But it won't be long before we work a few of the small issues still left.

TeeGee, combination which you mentioned seems really interesting. I was not aware those features Smiley It will be interesting to see how everything will turn out, though I am positive that it will be great.

Anyway, if you will need any help with testing features of the page before going fully online let me know. Either PM me here, or on Telegram.

Appreciate it Amadeus! Working out a few more issues then will invite everyone to do some testing with us. I am quite happy with how it's turning out and excited for the launch.

Report: Barclays Has Stopped Providing Banking Services to Coinbase

https://dcebrief.com/report-barclays-has-stopped-providing-banking-services-to-coinbase/


I wonder if that's what's behind the most recent BTC price drop. Hopefully Coinbase has another banking partner already.

I'm moving up to the "big leagues" with bot trading--the USD-BTC market on Bittrex--which is why I know exactly what the BTC price is doing right now. (adds several new trading pairs to stay ahead of the BTC price free fall). I like this market because it moves a lot, so my trading pairs see a lot of action. In contrast, the BTC-XEM market which I started out with (and am still in) can be quite slow, which makes it a great market to learn the ropes on.

Hopefully, with the amount of money they handle I'm sure there will be plenty of banking partners lined up to work with them.

Nice! Glad to hear it.

Hi everyone! Its been a long time since my last post. Those of you who don't know me I have followed and been accumulating dnotes since they were 3 months into development.

Thats great to hear that the hero membership milestone is right around the corner!  Grin For those of you new to Dnotes, this team always has done what they say they were going to do since day one. Yes there are set backs that may take them a little longer to work around most of which seem to be entirely out of there control. In what perfect world are there NO setbacks? Dnotes team and Alan have done a great job sticking to there vision and working around these setbacks... Most of which requires much time and hard work to achieve progress.

"If  DNotes were to succeed as the digital currency of the future with lasting value it has to take a very different path to reach that mountain top. It must build a solid foundation, block by block, systematically, while executing its strategic plans at the most opportune time which may often conflict with that of speculators."
Bitcointalk: March 8th, 2014 - Alan Yong, DNotes co-founder

I know it sucks the price is down however this is entirely out of there control in the present time.. Hey its a uniquely free marketplace. Makes no since to make small efforts of hype to try to keep the price up, it needs to happen organically to have a sustained value which is the objective. Also hype works against there trust factor which will be very important in the future. Clearly they aren't in a happy enough of a position to spend time and money advertising. They're will be a day and it sounds like they're getting to be another step closer.

"I think almost every great investment has a contrarian check. A lot of people will think that’s a bad investment. But you have a good reason for thinking it’s a good investment and it will get to scale. Those are typically the unusually great investments."
-Reid Hoffman

I personally believe Dnotes has the right team and dedication to make their vision get to scale. It just takes a lot of time and hard work. I believe in their vision and team which is why I'm still around. Team keep up the great work!

“Very often when you are going for real innovation you have to go against prevailing wisdom, and it’s hard to go against prevailing wisdom when there are people who have been there for a long time and you have some vice president who says, ‘No, that doesn’t make sense.’ ”
Dr. Robert Langer, MIT Langer Labs

Kudos to MiningHabit for gathering these quotes together!


Thank you mrbum805! Appreciate your support!

Iran’s Govt Issues New Rules on Cryptocurrency

https://dcebrief.com/irans-govt-issues-new-rules-on-cryptocurrency/


We are amidst the next great Crypto Boom. And DNotes is now at 20 satoshis and falling.

From Paul Graham's Twitter a few days ago...
"The reason most founders are surprised by the difficulty of fundraising is that they're learning something about themselves, not something about fundraising. They know fundraising is hard for startups that don't seem appealing to investors. They just didn't realize they had one."

I've always appreciated the DNotes project. But as it currently stands, there seems to be zero sense of urgency. This project has lost 98% of it's value. And there is little revenue to support funding.

How is the team going to position itself to benefit from this next boom cycle? HERo is a nice idea, but I have been on the Board of a rapidly growing non-profit called MakerGirl, for years. I can tell you that even the most well-marketed, well-meaning projects in the female empowerment space....are still incredibly hard to grow in terms of revenue. Let alone projects which are couched themselves in niches like blockchain.

What else do we got, besides HERo? Any technology or blockchain innovations coming down the line (moving to PoS was always a great North Star for the community to point to)? What other markets and use cases is DNotes approaching?

Alan is wrapping up some business and once we launch the new membership platform, our focus will be entirely on HERo as the first stage of the effort to increase revenue and prove the model for investors. Yes, fundraising is hard and the key investor push-back of revenue was anticipated, though we were hopeful to find the right investors that could see the potential.

The new membership platform is several months in the making and we have been working very hard to not only develop but also working towards building up a team and potential partnerships. It is much more broad in target and groups such as the one you are on the board of will be able to benefit from the platform. The success of the groups based on our research have been dependent upon their ability to branch out and organize locally. That is one of the ways in which HERo will be helpful to these groups, providing them with a platform that makes it easy to collaborate, find people and organize, start local chapters, etc...

This screenshot will help get a better understanding, but effectively HERo is meant to help in your career, business endeavours, personal growth, technological growth, etc...


We are currently wrapping up development and moving into the testing phase.



Can you also tell more about expected launch date or is it still to early? About one month ago Alan told that he expect official launch in about 60 days...that should mean approximately in one month from now (beginning of September). Is still realistic to expect it then, or did you run in any obstacles which could eventually postopne the launch date?


Yes, as long as we don't encounter any major issues, and we don't anticipate any, then we should be launching end of August or beginning of September.
