  2. Now that the March airdrops have finished and more GEN is in the hands of the community, I think now is a good time to talk about the future and where Genesis should go from here. Since we first launched in October 2017, we've seen steady growth in the community and what we have built so far is something we can all be proud off. However I'm sure that all of you will agree that it's important that we focus on the future and work on giving Genesis a long-term use which will hopefully in turn raise our profile, trading volume and for the investors, price. The crypto market in 2018 hasn't been great and that has definitely had an impact on nearly every project out there, including Genesis. I'm confident that it will turn itself round and we'll see another surge but nothing is guaranteed. Therefore it is important that we focus on ourselves and not let ourselves be influenced too much on the wider market. We're only a small fish in a big pond right now, after all. Not only that, but as some, hopefully most, of you will be aware, I'm the only person working on Genesis, with the exception of a few people who have chipped in over the previous months. This isn't my full-time job so time can be shorter some weeks than others to focus on Genesis. I've always prided myself on being honest and open with the Genesis community and right now I'm busy working on a major project which is taking up nearly all of my time. I want to reiterate that I am committed to Genesis and always will be but time is short currently. Through my work on this project, I am trying to secure a meaningful partnership for Genesis, but I can't comment too much or make any promises. Over the last few weeks, I have reached out to several companies and projects regarding partnerships but unfortunately I haven't had much luck. It sucks and probably isn't what you want to hear, but the reality of the situation is that the crypto scene is very competitive and as I've found out, driven by money. Money that I just don't have to pay. It's the same situation with exchanges. If only we were a year or so earlier, perhaps we'd be having a lot more luck. From what I've seen, going down the honest and open route is harder than making outlandish promises, manipulating investors, lying and over-exaggerating your project as a lot of projects tend to be doing these days, big and small. It is demoralising at times seeing the success others gain through dishonest practices. That's something I will never compromise on and hopefully that's one of the reasons you joined the Genesis community in the first place. With all of that said, the earth keeps spinning and life goes on. And so does Genesis. Crypto is here to stay and so are we. We just need to decide on the direction we all feel that Genesis needs to head in. Having taken some time out to think about what options are realistically on the table for Genesis, I have come up with a few potential ideas for where Genesis will go from here. I will outline each direction below and it will be great if you could vote for the option you would like to see. Please read each option carefully and then vote for your preferred option. Option 1 - Push merchant adoption of Genesis as a valid currency This option would see us trying to push merchant adoption for Genesis. It's main aim would be to be used as a currency which merchants could accept for products. This could be done in a number of ways, including building partnerships with startups and ICOs, particularly those which are aimed at creating marketplaces and stores where Genesis could perhaps be used as a currency. Through these partnerships, there could be incentives for paying with GEN too. Option 2 - dApp Development This option would be the most time-consuming but would ultimately see us develop a dApp around Genesis. As a community we'd have to decide what would be a meaningful and useful dApp to create. Stuff like exchanges etc have been done to death so we would need something more unique. One idea could be centred around building up and producing a collection of cryptocurrency guides which could be purchased, or unlocked, with Genesis Coins. If you think Option 2 is where we should go and you have some suggestions for a dApp, please leave a reply to this thread with your suggestions. Option 3 - Focus on the Genesis Forum With this option, our immediate focus would be on the Genesis forum. This would involve trying to grow numbers and activity as well as doing more with the store itself, perhaps offering more services or ways to spend your Genesis Coins. If you like this option, please leave suggestions of things you would like to see done to the forum to improve it. Option 4 - Create a Genesis Store where products and services are paid for with Genesis This option would need to be fleshed out and really planned but it would basically see us creating a store for Genesis where products and services are bought and sold for using GEN. To be honest, this seems like a tricky thing to pull off as we'd need to consider whether or not it's an open marketplace where anyone can join and sell or whether or not it is all done through us where we have to source and offer the products and services ourselves.

    Is the Bear Market Coming to an End?

    It's been a good few days in the crypto space, at least compared to the last few months anyway. Are we seeing the current bear market turn into a bull market or are these gains short lived and will quickly drop again? I'm optimistic but still cautious. If we can keep gaining nicely for the next week or two I think that will be a good signal but it's impossible to say one way or the other yet.

    Welcome to everyone who has joined us the past few weeks!

    Introduce Yourself!

    Please feel free to use this thread to introduce yourself to the community and get to know each other. I'll kick things off. As some of you will already know, I'm Jackson and I'm from the UK. I'm also the founder and developer of Genesis. If you're new around here, welcome to the community! When I'm not working on Genesis, my two big hobbies are football and gaming. I played football regularly until a few years ago when some injuries brought my rather "uninspiring" career to an end. I own an Xbox One but the majority of my gaming is done on the PC nowadays although unfortunately, I'm finding myself having less and less time to play. Unsurprisingly, I'm also a massive fan of blockchain tech and cryptocurrency. I've been following the scene for several years now but only recently started investing some of my own money into several different coins. So that's a little bit about me, I'm looking to forward to meeting more members of the Genesis community!

    Where Should Genesis Go From Here? Have Your Say!

    Thanks for the feedback so far guys, it's greatly appreciated. There's definitely pros and cons to every option so I'll let it run for a bit longer to get as much feedback and votes as possible and then we can go from there. I agree with the marketing, the truth is we could do with additional people helping out in roles such as that. If anyone is interested and has skills that are useful to the project please let me know. I can offer payments in GEN and may be a good opportunity to gain some experience or build up your reputation as you can always use what you've done here for future roles elsewhere

    March 16 Airdrop Discussion Thread

    Important note to everyone. You MUST include your Ethereum wallet address on your profile by adding it to the location or wallet address field. You can do this by going to your profile and clicking edit. You'll see the option so just add it in there. I'll wait some time before I start going through the applications to give people time to add it to their profile as the majority of applications have not done this and will be rejected if the address is not displayed when I process the application.

    Quick Weekly Update - March 26

    Hey guys, Just like last week, there won't be a weekly update in the manner there usually as, mainly because there isn't much to report other than what's currently going on with the airdrop and bounty program. However I've made a quick update to let you know what's going on this week and all the dates you need to know! Airdrop: The final March Airdrop will take place on Friday March 30 and will have 200 places available.

You will need to: Be signed up to Genesis Forum Display your Eth Address in address field on Genesis Forum Following on Twitter Join Telegram group All airdrop payments have been sent for Airdrop 1 and Airdrop 2. If you haven't received your airdrop but are on the spreadsheet, please let me know and I'll look into it for you. You can check the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16y0U3ZhkILfpG1amS-uEuGHSUa4H5sAO4f-jts62y9I Make sure you go to the right tab at the bottom. Payments for Airdrop 3 will be sent from Monday April 2 onwards. Bounty Program: All payments have been made to those who have completed a bounty form. Bounties are added to this spreadsheet, so you can check to see how much you will be receiving and whether or not it has been sent yet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11gebG2Hiw7BepCDaNyuy4MOJ3XEVaOSiHrb8qBTwx1E/edit?usp=sharing There are still lots of bounties that can be claimed, so if you want to earn some more bounties, complete one or more bounties and fill in the Bounty Completion form. All the details can be found here: Genesis Lottery The Genesis Lottery draw for March takes place this Friday, March 30 at 8pm UK time. All tickets must be purchased by 7pm on Friday.

To be eligible for the HODL Program, you must have 5000 or more GEN in your wallet on March 31. Any balances on an exchange will not be counted in the screengrab. Payments will begin to be made from Monday April 2 due to the Easter break.
  21. We have a few exchanges in mind for the future to get Genesis added to but we wanted to reach out to the community and see what exchanges you had in mind. We're looking for realistic exchanges however so while Bittrex and Binance would be great exchanges to be on, they are not realistic for us especially at present. For Genesis to be listed, an exchange needs to: 1) Accept ERC20 tokens 2) Have a reasonable listing fee OR a fair voting system 3) Easy to sign up and use Let us know what exchanges you can find!

    Forum Suggestions

    Thanks for the suggestions Adding a price ticker would be pretty cool, however unlike CMC, CoinCodex don't offer widgets which you can use to display current prices. If we get listed on an index which offers a feature then we'll add it for sure. I'll see if there's a way we can make it clearer here on the forum what the situation is with regards to exchanges and if there's a way it can fit in without looking out of place.
