how much  bts follow  my vote  get when combine???????????????

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.

its only useless if we as a community do not try to share the info.

;)

"we" already shared our equity...  (merger)
40 mentions of the word blockchain in the Kickstarter campaign, 3 mentions of the word Bitcoin and 0 mentions of word BitShares which is supposed to be powering it. The good news, FMV only has about 10 million more vesting BTS to dump over the next 8 months.

They're trying to raise over $3million via kickstarter? That'll never happen.

I don't understand how they could come up with that amount to raise.  $100,000 sure, $250,000 maybe.  3+ [email protected]?#?

It does not matter which amount they claim. They will not get even $10K given the bullshit they write in their advertising.

To add myself in the rows of sceptics, I'd also like to leave a comment here. I'm pretty impressed of the development and concepts presented by nathan and I was following this project very closely because I'm working on a similar project and have to solve the same technological issues. However, all in-depth information from this 4 years old project I could find was 3 youtube videos where nathan explains concepts to solve problems, e.g., with identity managment.

The rest of the youtube channel is text overlays, music and stock images or stock videos, clustered with FMV logos. Also, the website is like a huge copy pasted bloated thingy hard to navigate. I was showing it to friends working also on blockchain democracy sector and the reactions were "fake" and "oh, they copied my texts without any credits.

As if this was not enough, suddenly, after so many years of nothing, you start a crowdfunding campaing of 3 million USD, stuffed with what? Stock Images! Sorry but you really can not be taken seriously anymore. It looks for me you are just existing for the sake of getting yourself fed and on any occasion taking pictures with local politicians.

So here are some suggestions, how you could regain credibility:

  • Write technical whitepapers finally. Maybe one on the project you are working on, the stake weighted voting application, and also one on the future plans of the 1P1V application, which is by far more interesting than the stake weighted because you are always talking about presidential elections on all channels but didn't even start working on 1 person 1 vote solutions.
  • Put them up for review and request for comments. There a many people out there working on similar solutions. Get feedback, together you will be faster achieving your goals and not miss the target.
  • Also, start developing on real prototypes. Try to minimize functionality and publish first proof of concept implementaitons in a fast iterative process. People will overwhel you with feedback and start to actually use this software.
  • And finally, start involving the community. This subforum is a one-direction tool for you. Often questions remain unanswered for several weeks. I once also tried to contact Adam via Mail but never recieved any reply. I was wondering whether you still exist.

I hope this is constructive and will help you from shutting down due to the lack of funds. No idea how much your initial funding was, but you can be sure there will be no further funding if you dont stop posting stock images and start pushing solutions.

I don't see a reason on why to invest in this Kickstarter campaign.

Seriously!

This!

Wait, 30 Million BTS?

Indeed, it never happened!

This! Transparency would be very welcome. Now there is a crowdfunding for 21k USD up, but how did that amount happen to appear?

It does not matter which amount they claim. They will not get even $10K given the bullshit they write in their advertising.

This!

Start working towards a clear goal and involve the community.
