Follow My Vote are running a Kickstarter campaign
« on: April 14, 2016, 10:17:29 pm »
The title says it all. See here.

Am I allowed to announce this, or should I have waited for one of the team to do it? Dunno...

How come this is happening ? What is the use of our vested VOTES?

Starting a crowd funding campaign for fair election system with a political lie is very unwise.

Quote
It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything. Joseph Stalin.

These are not Stalin's words. This is a citation from a book of Boris Bazhanov, who was a member of politburo of communist party in USSR back in 1920th and Stalin's assistant. After accusations in corruption, he emigrated from the USSR and published a book, where he threw a lot of shit about his former comrades from politburo, which is not confirmed by any other sources. About all of them. This citation is his pure fantasy, which he assigned to Stalin. So, a signature under citation should say "Boris Bazhanov", not "Joseph Stalin".

Just to inform the public. Besides this, the Follow My Vote project is really cool.

Relax wiz kid, its just a new capital raise. Companies have them all the time.  Dillution to promote a new product is good dilution. Diluting the shareholders to pay for golden parachutes or debt interest is bad dilution. The only question is how much dilution are we getting here. In other words, what share of the FMV equity goes to existing shareholders?

Nice Work by the way.  This community continues to radically evolve!.
You own the network, but who pays for development?

Hopefully, their campaign goes viral and they raise some money. Whether they're going to use the money for more development or to actually launch, I don't know. If their product is ready, then I'd say they need to prove this on a smaller scale first: student council elections, lodges, community organizations, maybe some boards. If it works and saves money, getting a little press along the way, then maybe a local government (with the freedom under state law to do its own thing) gives it a test run.

[member=3923]adam[/member] I think it would help if the title was more simple, such as: "Honest and verifiable election" and potentially not even mention blockchain tec in the tile

Keep telling yourself that.

OH, and when this Kickstarter fails don't be surprised when they show up back here asking you guys for more money or dilution.

I don't see a reason on why to invest in this Kickstarter campaign.
[member=17361]ak[/member] Please give us a way to invest in FMV but do not try to sell us Honor, Pictures of Coffee Cups (ridiculous) and MERIT's.
Seriously!

30 million :(

I don't understand the purpose of this Kickstarter campaign, it seems to be done with no marketing or outreach of any sort, and appears doomed to fail. It's been live for over a week and they so far have raised 0.078% of their target, and as far as I know no one from the FMV team has even come here to acknowledge that it's happening.

Considering the fact that it's an election year in the States this could've been a golden year for FMV, but it's being squandered on this useless Kickstarter campagin.
