Some old-timer BPs will remember the mentormarket proxy. During the early days it was one of the larger ones and helped some of our better BPs out during that time.
As Eden pursues ways to gain resources, perhaps TIMM is some low hanging fruit that can be used.
In a nutshell, TIMM is a free market financial analysis site. Members can offer their insights for free or on subscriptions. TIMM simply provides the tools to do so, allowing for a free market approach.
It’s already an MVP right now. With some traffic, it could start providing services immediately.
Proposal: With the support of the community, TIMM will offer a % of gross proceeds to EOS on Eden.
Needs: TIMM really needs a good dev on-hand to massage the site to streamline it and trouble-shoot when things go wonky. Ideally a dedicated dev team would help advance the features as well.
And TIMM needs marketing, at least until reaching the critical mass stage where growth becomes more natural.
Additional proposal: I’ve been told that WordPress can be hosted on EOS main. It’s way beyond me, but it would be cool to be the first such site launched on the blockchain and possibly pave the way for new endeavors or additional business models (some of which I already have ideas and models for, but first things first).
Tokenization: I don’t really know if there’s a great model for tokenizing on TIMM. I’ve been reluctant to do it just because I can. But I’m open to methods of gamifying and tokenizing the project, if we can come up with a good compelling reason to. It’s simply a matter of whether we should just because we can and, if so, what’s the best model.
Funding: I don’t know if funding is needed. It depends on how others want to participate. If the dev and marketing teams are interested in equity or some sort of profit sharing, I’m more than happy to cover operating expenses until profitable. If the dev and/or marketing team need to be paid, then we can discuss funding. Personally, I’d rather just roll it out and share in the profits. But I’m open to ideas.
I didn’t take this to EOStarter because I don’t know that it needs funding and if it’s a good model for tokenization. However, if it will help the community and other projects, I’d be more than happy for us to use it to get something rolling. Regardless, I think TIMM could be low hanging fruit, and potentially start providing some funding for Eden on EOS fairly quickly without a ton of effort.
