MaidSafeCoin and Exchanges

Yesterday we were informed that Bittrex are going to be delisting MaidSafeCoin. The suddenness of the news, which takes effect on the 9th of March came as a surprise. The rapidly changing regulatory landscape in the US (where Bittrex are based) is evidenced with the SEC taking a greater interest and more proactive approach in cryptocurrencies. While we can’t say too much about the process that led to the decision (as we had been asked to sign NDAs) the reason provided was MaidSafeCoin’s current lack of utility on the SAFE Network. https://medium.com/@maidsafe/maidsafecoin-and-exchanges-51920453724d

Not the best news for MAID. It is a little surprising that Bittrex still lists MANY coins that don't have a live network yet.

MaidSafe has a live network. It's called Alpha 2. Community created a CMS. Quite nice.

https://safenetforum.org/t/safe-cms-censorship-is-a-thing-of-the-past/20419/118

About Bittrex: currently over 1 million usd volume on HitBTC and Polo. Can't be bothered by the Bittrex news. It's a regulative thing with an overactive US government. You know, the folks that allowed NINJA loans to people without an income. Guess they know what they're doing  Roll Eyes

If that is really about compliance - Polo may do the same. I hope somebody will speak with Binance and any other bigger nonUS based exchange

With or without bittrex, i am going to hold my maid stash. This looks more like a compliance problem than the doubts about future of maidsafe.
At least they have a roadmap. Its a big project and impossible to deliver within a short time.

Maid is tradable on Openledger. DEX is the future. CEX are doomed.

1. Is it correct that for each Maid transaction the user faces literally transaction cost of a whole BTC transaction since they chose to implement their placeholder token on Omni?
2. Is this true also for decentralized exchanges where one may trade MAIS token?

I am actually quite amazed that Maidsafe is still ranked among the top 200 altcoins.  Every weekly update is bad news and causes the coin to fall in price until some speculators pump it back up for a period.
I am also amazed about the tenacity of the devs.  All IT geeks assure me that the Maid project is not feasible, and here you still get some people to work on a project that may never see the day of light.  Do they really believe in it?  Or are they just happy to get a job?

I recently had dinner with one of the world's top Rust developers.  He had nothing positive to say about MaidSafe, implied the rest of the Rust community is embarrassed to have Maid using their platform, and confirmed our suspicion that Maid devs know their project is not feasible but are happy to get a job.

You are bashing MaidSafe for years now. I see you here all the time. And I really wonder what reason you have to come back and put energy in this topic. It's like claiming that you don't like Mc Donalds and show up every few days to get a happy meal. It doesn't make sense, looks a bit like a mental disease. And your claims here are so far off that it's funny. MaidSafe was invited to several Rust Meetups to present their project. Here's proof (https://youtu.be/6-Tgo10t_jA). And here's even more: (https://youtu.be/4qEuWJPVeFs). Nikita Baksalyar is a MaidSafe engineer and gave a presentation that's posted on the official Rust channel 3 weeks ago. 

Like I said, it's just funny how you put energy into a topic like this making one false claim after the other. I guess you got burned quite hard by shorting Maidsafecoin the other day and you're still angry about it. Well, sorry but i can't help you with that.

Here's the latest dev update:

I did lose a few BTC shorting Maid a couple years ago, but I'm not "still angry" about it.  That's just part of the game; no risk, no reward.  I'd be as immature as your post if I persisted in being butthurt about that. Smiley

You should not call me a liar just to deflect from my reporting of a first hand, real world experience simply because you find it offensive and unpleasant.

For context, my dinner with the top-tier Rust developer/researcher was completely coincidental and occurred purely by chance.  He had no idea who I am and was (likewise) surprised I even knew the "very obscure" (his words) Maid project existed.

I approached the subject of Maid tactfully in case he was a supporter, but it turned out that we two dissimilar experts evaluating Maid from completely different backgrounds and areas of expertise still shared the common ground of concluding Maid is an embarrassment to much of the Rust community, Maid is not feasible, and Maid devs (should) probably know that but are happy to get a job.

When I told him Maid was pivoting to Dash-like marketing emphasizing hype over technology, he laughed and said he wasn't surprised.  We then went on to have a fascinating discussion about functional languages, because unlike you I very much appreciate being in the company of domain experts and seek to glean every bit of new information possible from them (rather than fling poo at them because they dispute my cherished assumptions).

Incredible...why people keep coins on that exchange at all if withdrawal fees
are so big? Or is it maidsaefcoin alone with such big fee?

Thanks for coming here to bump your post count. Obviously you are not familiar with Maidsafe and you only entered the thread because it got bumped up.

Thank you for trolling here (or maybe you just trying to bump your post count?). I posted that because Poloniex fee is 10 maid.
Obviously you're not familiar with Poloniex

Strange words about the impossibility of the project. he has a working version, is not he? For example, the Safinus project is currently developing a finished product. Here, too, so?

Here are some of the main things to highlight this week:

- Big news this week with the announcement of our partnership with Identillect Technologies Corp. Read more about the collaboration on the Forum2, Medium13 and our blog4.
- The Indian office is running a hackathon on the 15th of March 2018 to attract graduate developers from one of Chennai’s top colleges. We’ve launched a website18 to promote the event being held at Venkateshwara College.
- Saturday, March 10th sees the second meetup of the Kuala Lumpur group2. @dugcampbell will be calling into the meeting via Skype and we’re looking forward to an interesting chat with the community.
- The front-end team recently published a new version of safe-node-app (v0.8.0) which upgrades the native safe_app lib to the latest available version (v0.6.0).
- The SAFE Client Lib team is getting back to Java bindings and working together with the front-end team to fix some of the issues that they have discovered.
- The Routing team is currently focused on implementing a push-pull gossip protocol and carrying out evaluation work on that.
- A few members of the Routing team have also been working in the background on improving the asynchronicity of our consensus ordering algorithm for data chains.

MAIDSAFE NEW TEAM MEMBER: STEPHEN COYLE
https://medium.com/safenetwork/maidsafe-new-team-member-stephen-coyle-f912871d88c0

Here’s a quick intro to me and my background, which will hopefully let you know a bit more about who I am and what I hope to add to the company.

Born and brought up in 1980’s Glasgow during the glory days when Scotland actually qualified for football tournaments (the definition of ultimate glory in Scotland these days), and our teams at least put up a fight in European competition, I graduated with Honours from my Glasgow Caledonian University Computing course. IT jobs in Glasgow were pretty difficult to come by with zero experience, so I moved to just outside London for 3 years where I worked for IBM doing some general tech support, and some Lotus Notes/Domino development and support. The lure of home eventually brought me back to Glasgow where I took a tech support role with Ernst & Young. After moving to a similar role at the University of Glasgow, I found out after I started that testing web apps was a big part of my new job…things would never be the same again!

Software testing went from being an ‘extra’ task in my day to day role, to what I felt most passionate about. I sat my ISTQB test (more about that later) and thought I knew it all…

Time progressed and I moved company. Suddenly I was faced with testing windows apps, mobile apps and web apps. I worked with my colleagues to figure out the best way to test that suited us — this is when I realised that the ISTQB taught way of working is actually pretty worthless in the real world of software testing. ISTQB barely mentioned Agile or exploratory testing. It taught me to create mountains of paperwork for each project, paperwork that would inevitably be ‘copy & pasted’ between each project and so was pretty much worthless. Did I really need to write out manual test steps in huge test scripts which walked someone else through every click & key type? I realised that the time I was wasting following the ISTQB practices could be spent doing something more productive…TESTING!

So onwards & upwards! I built and managed a team across 2 UK sites and was the face of testing to our customers and auditors. We tested various different products concurrently and I even went back to my old university to give a lecture on testing. I must know it all now, right?

Being in management meant that my time actually testing got less and less. I missed the day to day involvement on the frontline, so a few years later I joined FanDuel. I was now tasked with writing automated UI tests (in Python, using Selenuim WebDriver), testing the API (using Postman) and testing core layer Java code (using existing/newly written Python scripts and JSON-RPC requests). I was now also working with microservices and a thorough suite of automated integration tests through the Java — API — Web layers. All a huge difference from where I’d come from. I loved the challenges in learning these new skills and eventually training new starters in them. I caught the bug of learning new things and expanding my testing knowledge — clearly I’m never actually going to know it all, so what other exciting things are out there for me to discover?

I’m pretty active in Glasgow testing meetups — attending, mentoring and hosting. My goal is to talk at a testing conference at some point, I love the buzz and interaction at conferences, it really energises me and fuels my love of my discipline, a discipline that seems to be overlooked a lot. It’s very rare to meet someone who goes to university to become a software tester, we all seem to fall into the role.

Oh yeah, the important stuff — I’m married to my beautiful wife, Shabana, and we have 3 gorgeous girls, Aisha, Nadia and Sofia, aged 5 years, 3 years and 5 months :-D

Anyway, enough about me. I’m really excited to join the team at MaidSafe and can’t wait to get to know you all! Let’s make a difference.
