So now that we know what we’re up against: HOW do we win? HOW do we increase usage of NEO tokens and thus make NEX (and ourselves, we are all tied together) win?
We could all keep doing NEO events and wearing NEO t-shirts and such. However, I propose that a BETTER answer is to build consumer apps where the crypto is built in almost as a Trojan horse. NEO’s current wealth of software dev tools in particular give it a HUGE advantage over EOS in that department.
You can easily build a NEO wallet inside an app. In EOS, this is EXTREMELY difficult to do at present – usage of an exterior wallet is required. However. No consumer app (other than gambling) is going to convince end users in Iowa to download a second, separate wallet app. No. The operations and wallet MUST be built into the dApp.
Guardian Circle will do it like this: If you answer my Alert – then after my emergency is serviced, I am given an opportunity to ‘tip’ responders with GUARD. Now – you MIGHT know what ‘GUARD’ is (i.e. crypto – and we tell you) – but odds are, you mostly think of it as ‘points’ or ‘frequent flyer miles’ – something like that.
Of course, if you KNOW it’s crypto, there’s a fully functional NEO-based wallet in-app you can get to that lets you send GUARD to an exchange or another user.
Now – it would be GREAT of NEX would let us add functionality in our app so that our users could purchase GUARD with a credit card directly from NEX – all without having to think about NEX or exchanges or crypto at all. Just – swipe card, get more GUARD points. That’s it.
I suspect many of YOUR dApps could use this ‘swipe card, get more tokens’ functionality. If NEX gives us an API, we’d likely ALL build it in – getting a TON more NEX users.
