<super3> is someone willing to empty out their pts wallet into a new one, but leave 1 PTS in there?
<super3> and then send me that private key(via PM)?
<super3> i want someone to make a guide for redeeming protoshares for a DAC(Memorycoin 2.0 at this point), but they need a wallet that has coins before block 3200

Will refund PTS if needed.

First impressions / critiques:

- I think it's worth finding whomever snatched up the .com or .org. It's hard to take anybody seriously on a .net these days, unless the branding really sells the product as a 'network'.

- I'm not a fan of the new logo. The 'p' created by the negative space is not obvious, and as others have mentioned, it is very similar to the GameCube logo... I think this concept can work if the negative space is more obvious, however it may be difficult to pull that off.

- Too much space between everything. I understand you don't want to cram everything together, but I think a better balance can be achieved.

- Is there going to be a video on the top laptop screen? This would be very effective.

- 'Distributed' is not aligned with the other two on the same row. Similar alignment issue with items underneath 'Why Protoshares?'

- Internet slang 'tl;dr' seems out of character and unprofessional.

- Stan's original quote "What's backing your coin?" is much more powerful and provocative than this paraphrased version. This version is perhaps more civil, but I don't think the change is doing it any favors in terms of leaving a lasting impression.

- Lists are better when they have introductions, like you did under 'Early Start'. This would fill out the site a little more too, which it seems it needs.

As a positive, this site already feels a lot less like a scam than competitor websites. I think the next big priority would be to produce a video (animations, voice actors, etc), and have it auto-start on arrival. The ideas behind DACs are exciting, and a good video explaining the core concepts of DACs and how they relate to ProtoShares will get people pumped and ready to invest. "This is the future, man!"

Also, I will do the PTS favor- PM me your address.

- Contacted Amazon for .com name.
 
- I'll let Brian handle that

It would really help me out if you created individual Github issues for each one of your points. https://github.com/super3/protoshares.net/issues
Thanks!

I like the design but maybe putting "Protoshare" as a title right above Decentralizing Innovation

Should there be a period after "Decentralizing Innovation"?

Also maybe making "Decentralizing Innovation" in bold.

Would it be better to link to specific pages explaining the "what" and "why" of each:

Fair Mining
Full-time Devs
Well Funded
DAC Investment

All in all its a good design and awesome layout.

Good job!
If I helped you and want to show your appreciation donate any amount:

I think the website looks great - very modern and very easy to navigate, use etc.

I second the above poster - I do not like the new logo. It's too similar to existing logos that are too familiar within the technology industry.

Also that non-raster laptop isn't easy on the eye.. Might want to swap it out for something a bit smoother imho.

Great job, only thing im not keen on is the laptop on the first page. Not sure what i dont like about it... maybe a bit cheap looking or too many angles or not enough contrasting shades defining it? I dont know but lets down a fantastic start for me.

Looks good, I hadn't noticed you used some of my copy  :D I actually never liked the use of 'affairs' though. Anyone is free to substitute another word.

Delighted to see progress being made and things being taken seriously in regard to design. That was what Invictus was really missing.
I really like the website, the one glaring exception being the logo.
The original logo was clean and iconic. The new logo is too complex puts Protoshares at risk of possible breach of copyright laws in regard to the similar gamecube logo.
The bottom line being that the new logo doesnt add anything positive and could infact bring negative intonations along with it.
Other than that overall look of the site is great, it seems to work well on iphone safari browser's too.

Please change back to the original logo, it wasnt broke..so no need to fix it.

Website is looking great, other than what has already been said, I would like to add that the download navigation button does not make it clear where to download the program, if you could shrink the laptop and move up the download buttons for Windows/Mac/Github it would be preferable.

Ok make a Github issue please.

Still need Brian to handle the logo, though what do you guys think of this?
Same idea just a little better.
