so my question is : why people should use grin ?
i’am not an expert but i know that grin is the first implementation of the MimbleWimble Protocol, a Privacy-oriented currency. Ok looks Cool, so this is supposed to be used by persons who need to be anonymous. those people don’t care about Blocks, size etc they want a SIMPLE way to buy, store and spend their coins and of course if you can hide all the details about the transaction like amount, address etc that would be nice.
Those people are the key, and they can make grin a real trusted currency. it’s important to have some enthousiast people debating about the protocol, the technology and the next roadmap, but don’t forget about the real users, simple users.
it’s those people who will bring a real value to the coin and make it A CURERNCY.
Where are all those people ? people searching for privacy ? They are on the Darknet, on different marketplaces searching for products, or whatever. The problem is that when they proceed to payment, they don’t find grin so they will never know about it.
You guys before continuing coding and improving, just let the people know by starting collaborating with different darknet actors, show them how your coin can change the game.
Users will then start wondering what is this new coin ? how this can bring them anonymity and start comparing it with other coins in a first step. and then they will try to creating a wallet, start buying some coins and test it on marketplaces.
First thing it’s to start collaborating with the real actors and target real users. Create a grin GUI wallet is a must have. by the way i really like Niffler it’s a good example .
Once you have the users, and get plugged with a multitude of marketplaces, you will get the transactions and people will start creating wallets and buying coins.
When you have the users, you will gain trust and value and one day you will be listed on exchanges because users wants to buy grin
i want to see real use cases of grin not just threads and documentation about stuff i don’t even understand.
Thank you for your time.
