Unanswered question thread
« on: January 26, 2016, 09:00:37 pm »
Can you guys make a list of questions that have not yet been addressed and post them here.

There's a bunch of them already scattered around the sub-forum. So if someone could gather them all up and post them here, I would be able to see with the CEO, PR firm and attorney what I can divulge in public. As crypto-prometheus suggested, I should go AFK and let our PR firm handle the pitchfork and torches.

So get a clean list going and I can hand it off.

This thread should be only for listing questions. I will keep the thread clean by deleting any posts that aren't contributing to the questions. You have the entire internet to bash me haha, just don't do it in this particular thread.

Cob that's absolutely not funny! We don't have the time to "bash" you just for fun!

- who is still on the team
- is eddy still around
- how are you running a business without funds?
- how do you pay for attorneys and a PR firm
- when will you provide a working webpage for both peertracks and muse?
- what is the status with poloniex?
- Chinese exchanges planed in the near future?
- what about your alpha tests you mentioned months ago

btw. this is how a webpage should look after 1.5 years!

Above questions are good ^^

In addition:

- Can you publish a document that lists how you have spent the crowdfund money?

- Will you be releasing a working Peertracks product before you begin your next round of fundraising?

- Has Bitsapphire succeeded or failed to deliver a working product? Do you still have a relationship with them?

- What technical obstacles must be overcome before launch? Someone said that the graphene code work is done, but you are waiting on web development/integration. Is this true?

- Are you willing to commit to publishing updates at regular intervals?

Even if you do not have any "major" news, I think it would be beneficial if you at least show up once a week and write a few paragraphs. As a crowdfunded organization, It is very strange that you keep your donors at such a distance. There are many ways to connect with us without having to "spill the beans" on your special sauce, and the longer you wait the more people will begin to question everything about your operation.

I also would love to see you on beyond bitcoin. Fuzzy's group hangout format is a great tool and frankly I am confused about why Peertracks (and some others) have not yet taken advantage of this platform.

And a few other questions:

- Will you be releasing a project plan? If so, when should we look for it? If not, will we have a broader list of proposed milestones?

- What are the plans for alpha testing? Will the alpha or beta be open testing?

- Have you secured a way for artists to create artistcoins and users to get  money into the system  through Credit Card?

- What exactly is Troopeers? Is that a working title or finalized?

- With your current funding level, will you still have enough to release the initial product?

- What are your plans for SXSW?

- Has Peertracks already paid the marketing firms upfront for work or is that another upcoming expense?

- Why wasn't there more transparency over the last few months when Peertracks was running into difficulty? Do you stand behind keeping the silence or do you wish you updated more frequently on the actual issues?

- Has Peertracks identified any mainstream artists that are willing to back the project (example Ujo Imogen Heap)

- Do you currently have another job (either Full Time or Part Time) or are you 100% Peertracks? How about Eddie? Do you expect this status to change in anyway in the next 90 days?

How much funding and time do you believe you need in order to launch a working peertracks product onto the muse blockchain?

Do you believe that the peertracks business model remains technically feasible? Is it still unique within the music space? How long before a different project launches successfully?

If there were alpha tests, what were the results?

Thanks cob

Give him a week or two. Cob's not on the forum all the time.

A week or two is perfectly reasonable for ALL queations answered since the queations need to bounce between different people. However, some of the questions such as "Is Eddy still around" shouldn't take 5 days for a response. As answers trickle in, they should be posted to investors.

 At half a million dollars, 1.5 years later and major investor concerns, I would handle this quite differently. Aside from Play, this has been the least amount of communication I've ever seen in a project. I don't mind if the project is still many months off, I care about the need for additional fundraisers when up until recently, investors were completely left in the dark. We dont even know if all the different people received the questions. Just a very weird way to run a company.

I believe SOMEONE will make this type of music project a huge success. I hope it's Peertracks.

So Cob doesn't think I'm (or any of the investors I proxy for) picking on him, let me offer a suggestion how this could have been handled.

Muse Investors,

Thank you for your questions. I've identified 27 unique questions, 7 of which I can answer personally in the next 48 hours. As for the remaining questions, they've been sent to (names). I've received confirmation that these  parties have received your questions and have asked for 5 business to respond. I will follow-up with them in 3 days to verify everything is on track and will promptly communicate that information back to you.

[member=37209]bitacer[/member] [member=25351]Marky0001[/member]  Would you have felt better with this approach?

This shouldn't be rocket science. This isn't a hobby, maybe I just see it differently from everyone else.

Perfect. Even if it's later, as long as you keep everyone in the loop, I would hope that would be more than enough for the MUSE community.

I am wondering why people are cuddling cob right now. Is it because you are afraid he quits the project and doesn't save your money?

I mean read the ltcgear threads people tend to be "friendly" when they see their money being at risk!

In any case COB has to deliver and we don't have to send him hugs and kisses! We invested in that project so please be realistic!

Scammers don't change their mind just because of friendly words plus why do you wan to give him even more time to answer the questions?

If this project was real and in progress he could answer all those questions on the toilet taking a quick shit!

Seems like his "pr department" has to find the crystal ball first before they can come up with "answers" lol
