UPDATE: For our Supporters

This is another quick update for where the New Money project is at. We have been working hard behind the scenes on development of the Sollywood TV platform. The marketplace by which individuals will be introduced to the Sollars and Sense: Smart Money token. You can check out some screenshots:

FRONT PAGE / LOGIN / PROFILE / SOLLARS ACCOUNT / ADMIN / CONTENT CREATOR SEARCH

These screenshots are from our desktop app. Our iOS mobile app is being wire-framed and designed now. Similar to SteemIt/Steem Sollywood TV will essentially be our starting marketplace to bootstrap the Sollars and Sense currency with content creators and mainstream consumers. Our mission of mainstream adoption has not changes and we are very pleased with where development is going. No one has our mission of mainstream American adoption and we will take advantage of it. Content Creators are crying out for better solutions and we are going to be here to finally take advantage of that and continued consumer dissatisfaction with Cable TV's options.

Also the main explainer video for Sollywood TV is half way there. We had to take a break away from it to focus on the stellar website that is being designed. We've got some amazing people now working with the project behind the scene and I look forward to introducing them all soon. I am very grateful. The explainer video will be done by November tops. If you haven't checked out an ending scene from it you can view it HERE.

We are also now in the process of putting together a crypto/blockchain team which is different from the development team that is focused on the marketplace. The crypto-team will be used to essentially plan on our own blockchain and hold a second crowd-sale BEFORE the KickStarter (which will still be geared specifically for mainstream American consumers and now happen sometime in  Q1 2017.)

Going this route will essentially guarantee our project can survive the turbulence of early blockchain development and potentially catapult us to where we need to be while our early believers and then current believers will be able to take advantage of whatever success we receive. Think SteemIt/Steem's beginning with staying power. Of course that all depends on adoption but that is exactly why we will ask for continued support. A private beta for the functionality of the Sollywood TV platform is being planned and will happen soon.

Details on the White Paper / Team / Crowdsale / KickStarter / Private Beta / Website / And other information to come. If you are at all interested in joining the crypto-blockchain side of this team go ahead and send me a PM. Thank you all for the patience. It takes time to make great things but we are well on our way. Any questions please write here or PM me. Thanks!

UPDATE: $ense Coin

Happy to debut the new $ense coins that will be accompanying us on the third phase of this journey. I'll be on Mumble this Friday to give some updates on the project and our new direction. Thanks!

Is there any new update in this project?

Hello Felix. An update on our new direction was talked a little bit here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1433069.msg16566725#msg16566725

And discussed a little bit in this Mumble hangout here:
https://soundcloud.com/beyond-bitcoin-hangouts/179no-introoutro

I was also able to get an article for the project that was written in a two part series on SteemIt. You can find that here:

PART 1 / PART 2

On Part 2 MF-TZO and I discussed a little bit about the SoLCert token and holders in the comment section. Part 2 also contains an update on our current development state with Sollywood TV. So you can check that out.

Right now we are currently preparing to run a second round of crowdfunding in 2017 (Q1-Q2) and we are behind the scenes building the crypto side of our team. We are specifically devising and implementing a roadmap for the POC of the Sollars Blockchain and preparing a proper marketing strategy for the crypto world to participate. We will be going outside the Bitshares space for this second round and will be using all the funds that were to go to marketing the KickStarter to doing this second crowdsale. The KickStarter has been pushed back to the third round of funding as we have come to the conclusion that a second ICO round is more appropriate for our development stage. Rival projects like DECENT and Singular DTV have done well and with our connections we think we can do well enough also.

We are creating two White Papers. One for the Sollars/Sollywood TV blockchain. And one for the event (Sollywood Fest) in which we will do a Payout scheme similar to SteemIt's 4th of July payout to SteemIt bloggers. Our payout will be to our American Millennial Content Creators. The starting point for this platform as described numerous times. This is our industry and we already have potential film association partners lined up to get the word out to content creators and various types of filmmakers about the project and our platform.

Marketing our large payout as a Fest helps us to obfuscate confusion as film festivals in America are known for giving away prizes. This is in contrast to the message being hey come and get free money on this platform ie Steem's problem. I don't think that was Steem's intention but that is certainly how it was perceived by many and why after the payout was over many left. There is still much hope for SteemIt though and we acknowledge them in the Paper.

Some of our partners may also play as sponsors for the Fest as they are in the Festival space and this type of event could become a thing in the future. The Sollywood Fest White Paper is so individuals can understand why we are doing this event, why it will succeed in spurring on adoption in our target demographic and keep them on the platform and finally how it will be different from others.

The Fest will be here in Chicago and will contain elements of a film festival (films from our platform that built audiences), guest speakers, a mini award show for content creators on our platform and of course the actual payout from the blockchain beginning. This Fest is planned for sometime at the end of Q3 going into Q4 of next year.

Nothing has changed in terms of our goals to reach a mainstream audience with this project. The only thing that has changed is we are not waiting to build on our own blockchain (it will be graphene based). And we are no longer using KickStarter as a way to raise new money and reach our target audience. Instead we are going to use this annual style Fest and payout to do that this early on.

In order to hold a proper second crowd-sale including compensating individuals for holding SoLCerts there are many more elements to consider besides our POC marketplace with its blockchain. So we are working. Working working working. There will be plenty of time for talking and marketing next year when all the elements are in place to push out.

2017 will be a big year for us. Hope this info helps  :D

Regards,
Solomon

To Bitshares community members and SoLCert supporters this is a scene from the upcoming explainer video we have been creating in the background. It is still rough but it's one of the creative scenes we are very proud of. It took a lot of time to conceptualize how we can appeal to all Americans with the lines that I spoke. This was our way:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B15tKvjacYV3UkVpRmFTTnZCb1U/view?ts=58eefeab

In light of all the marketing talk and the positive reception to its need, I am excited that this project will get a chance to actually implement a holistic marketing strategy. We will also be shooting on the RED cameras for interviews and other creative content that will be utilized this time around for our second round.

GOOD HOLISTIC MARKETING IS NEEDED. PERIOD.

And thanks to your patience and support we will be able to market this project to the larger crypto world in a way that is unique and inspiring. Touch them from the emotional aspect of humanity that technology cannot touch. Our core marketing assets are almost complete. More updates to come soon. Any questions let me know.

hi, when can we use your product? and when will the second ICO launch? Thanks

[member=24955]Felix[/member] thank you for the question. We are in the final two week sprint on the MVP before we can begin privately testing the product with others. The Sollywood TV gateway product will not launch to the public until AFTER the second round of funding. It will only be used to show investors and supporters that we now have a POC/MVP to build off of and take mainstream.

We will be using further funds to connect the gateway to its own lightweight blockchain. Similar to Steem/Steemit (different economics though). This is what we will be raising money for and the gateway will be set up as its own start up to become a fiat exchange in and out of our tokens on the blockchain for normal everyday consumers. We will only be dealing with our tokens and Dollars. Anyone else will be able to build what they want on the blockchain though no different than any of these other chains.

Sollywood TV will necessarily have to become a FIAT gateway to avoid the disastrous UX of Bitcoin. We've done the research. Its a losing proposition for grandma if you want her to adopt your crypto-currency. In order to go mainstream you need the proper funding and we can do it. Second ICO can be expected to commence sometime over the summer. Right now we are currently working on the White Paper and talking to individuals who can be contracted to build our chain once we raise funds. There are several avenues that can be taken here so its all about hearing people out.

We will need to do some heavy marketing to get it out there properly. The new Bitshares price has been a Godsend. We did not even expect to have this much funds to market and build a small blockchain team. But timing is always everything. And its right on time.

Finally I have to reiterate we will not be staying in the Bitshares community for funding. I love the Bitshares community but it is clear we will need to go outside of it to properly get funding and build the right support. So I have been working relationships in other communities. They are VERY receptive to the work that has been put into this project. Any relevant announcements will be made. Any questions let me know. Thanks.
