Indeed, it's not the huge news that is (at this stage) still potential, nor is it the 'Big Deal'. True huge news will only come if the foundation is established, so this should be the primary focus of the community leading up to launch.

Are you referring to more funds needed for Foundation or members needed to join Foundation (or both)?

Funding of the foundation. There is SO much going on behind the scenes that will only happen if the Foundation is established (this is a demand from the big companies too), so everyone should focus on making that happen ASAP pre-launch.

I would like to add that its a little strange to have things like potential "huge news" and "big deal" and "much going on behind the scenes that will only happen if...".

Its hard to get people excited when everything is so vague. David, you guys are running the show so it's your choice to pitch and explain things this way, but don't be surprised if people don't jump up and down with excitement or jump on the bandwagon when we are all kind of in the dark and just taking your word for it.

On one hand you want the community to take action and lead with ideas and outreach and concepts, etc. and on the other hand you don't want to shoot straight about who and what you are working on and with. It feels a bit like a carrot and the horse situation. If you trust the community to lead, why don't you trust us enough to fully disclose whats going on behind the scenes.

I will note, I am not trying to be confrontational, but am simply stating what some in the community are feeling.

The plan is easy - few JINN processors in every house. IOTA is a software token for this network.

Donate. I already donated 2 millions IOTA.

Vagueness is unfortunately the only way to prevent premature speculation that permeates the entire crypto space. I could have easily pumped IOTA to the stratosphere for my own short term profit, but instead I have done everything possible to minimize speculation and hyperbole. IOTA is a serious project, we refuse to pay for PR, we won't do ANY shady deals, we won't do anything to hype unconfirmed deals or partnerships.

This is why we didn't allocate a premine, because we want the community to decide it's own fate. Do they just want to play the lottery or do they want to ensure success? I have worked on IOTA *daily* since September. DAILY, every.single.day. including Christmas eve and New years eve, this is not something I am paid for, this is my volunteer work as a IOTA community member.

I am not asking the community to lead, as long as my role is what it is, that is still my responsibility, what I am ASKING of the community is to think long term and realistically, not get blindsighted by POTENTIAL short term profit. In other words: you already see the results of our work, so all you need to do right now is to trust us and get involved. This is not quantum physics, there is no ambiguity here, it's quite straight forward, but these things do not happen on their own. As soon as foundation is established we can celebrate with fireworks, but not before.

For me it feels like iota is already losing its momentum due ist appearance to be stuck, at least from my perspective of "normal layman user".


IOTA has never been more active in the real world, don't go by activity on BTT.

We need more people to pledge to the foundation! I pledged 20% of my funds, if everyone does the same we will hit our goals very quickly, david will announce the behind the scenes news, and the worth of your tokens will go up by much more than 20%. It's a no brainer.

We are 43% funded for the foundation! If everyone who donated 10% or less doubles their donation we will be very close!

This should be an easy decision to make because the ones who already pledged to donate 10% or less already see the value in donating. They just need to increase the impact they are making!

Im adding 300k to foundation, so its 550k foundation, +250k to deal.

David, will there be a prelaunch so people can just send to a foundation address before deal and foundation fate are decided?
I think it would boost donations, as now reality is no one can sent nothing anywhere.

I think there a quite a few Iota holders not aware of the foundation and it's fundraiser, we should try to reach to them. It's possible that they have joined the newsletter on Iotatoken website so maybe an email to them would be in place.

OR, all those who have contributed to the "deal" could also pledge the proceeds from the sale to the foundation. that will make us at around 86% Cheesy

To me, the GUI having taken so long time means only that it must be made to be good quality, not halfway rushed. I am grateful for that.

No, the reason GUI has taken so long is that the 2 teams we outsourced to were the most unprofessional people ever who delayed the GUI with over 2 months through lies and deceit. One of them still refusing to hand over some of the files. The other reason is that we restructured core part of IOTA, which required an almost complete redo of the GUI. All of which everyone has been notified of ad nauseam.

That's my plan from the beginning: 100% of the btc collected from the iota I pledged for the deal goes to foundation.

In this regard I would appreciate, if there would be at least the option to spend BTC to the foundation. I know you would love to have IOTA, but the spended BTC could be used for the first bills so that the amount of BTC in the Foundation would be relatively quick small instead of using IOTA for the first bills.

The good thing with BTC would be also that you could provide already an address and you so would have already spendable cash in the foundation, what is not the case now. This BTC can help you to survive until the GUI is ready and give you financial fire power right now.
