I will address each of your concerns.
- Akita devs could participate in a grants round and compete for funding the same as everyone else, based on the quality of their work, that seems fair doesn’t it?
Was SHIBA forced to compete to get their community back? I don’t think you’ve gotten past the first part of the problem yet. How do you liquidate your prize without cannibalizing a community?
Each token liquidated is value taken out of our community’s hands. No one asked for this. We took a project that was dead and build it up from nothing, with our own personal funds.
#2. “Freedom to send half your supply to a single person. freedom to donate them towards a community funding public goods. freedom for that community to sell them, or do whatever it determines is the best use of those funds for itself. freedom to collaborate on ideas too, if anyone has any creative and novel suggestions.”
Yes if the Gitcoin community is willing to do that to our community sure, the power is yours.
#3. “This is very important. What is that plan?(Establish governance and funding for our community project) Can anyone show anything to us? (Our Github repos are public) code?(Our Github repos are public) design documents?(What kind of design?) if we consider this an investment in a roadmap, then where is it?** ( Here https://www.polarfox.io/docs ) can we review it, critique it, improve it? (Sure) are the devs dedicated enough to that vision to lock up their own tokens in a vesting contract? (We have paid for this out of pocket thus far so , sure.) how about the community, will they lock up in a vesting contract?( I’m sure they would) you seem dedicated, will you lockup your funds like you are asking gitcoin to do?(Yes) are we assured devs are capable of managing a project with many millions of $ of gitcoins funds on the line? (Theyre only gitcoins funds if you choose to kill our community) what is their track record like, can we trust them? (We have gone public from a telegram group, we are a new team. ) Do they share the same values?” (I personally do , but why does this matter? )
Vega5 posted a link whilst i was writing. Seems like they are making a dex on avalance? (Yes we are) and one sentence about decentralized social media?(I’ve written many sentences, but the decentralized social media wont be built until we have governance and our dex up)
Details would be great… Looks like another uniswap fork?(Yes, it is cloned from pangolin/zero/uni) why is it called polarfox?(Why are you called Isaac?) Why is there a separate $fox token for governance, and how does it relate to akita? (We dont have access to the AKITA contract, so we will stake AKITA with PFX to yield a governance token) why is the git repo empty?(Its not) why did you choose avalanche over other chains? ( Avalanche is an underrated blockchain with a team of really smart people, Avalanche’s consensus model is winning awards in computer science, Avalanche is already a next GEN L1 blockchain. Room for growth. )
I joined the discord but it seems people are only talking about the token price and exchange listings, as i kind of expected. I am surprised how little conversation there is about gitcoin being sent 50% of the supply… why hasn’t an announcement been made to the community? (Yes the community has been well informed.) honestly, it looks like the usual pnd token,(really the usual 1B market cap PND token huh) like the hundreds of other cloned tokens.(right all of those other ones ended up on gitcoin forums fighting for their lives) I really don’t get why we should be supporting this." ( You should be supporting this because this is what decentralization is supposed to be. People coming together from many places to do one thing. We were literally rugged, and a team formed. A team of like minded people that wanted to fix a situation together. Why would you not want to support us? We are real people, have become friends over the past 5 months. This is a part of our lives now. We are part of Ethereum history whether you like it or not.)
“We can fund hundreds of projects, toys, hackathons, using the tokens that have been donated to us. Or we could fund akita? Just asking questions before we give up a lot of money for a meme.” ( I kinda feel how i’d expect a person experiencing racism to feel, the “for a meme” line is kind of played out. We’re working hard, we made our identities public, we are really funding this ourselves, I just find this really offensive, probably because I have actually worked hard. Sure you can fund hundreds of projects, by killing the one that actually worked to get where they are without funding, how ironic.)
“There is no authority but yourself ”
and Isaac apparently.
