I didn't have a lot of T$ but I'm against the idea of resetting the balances.
I like the idea of adding another currency and keeping T$ as it is. The new currency can be used for trading between members(it can prevent scamming). T$ can be used for buying sub
Against it because it's unfair for those who already had a lot of Thank$.
However I like the idea of a new currency... why call it a new way? It would be a TheBot.Net wallet with USD xD
(For example you charge 10 usd to your thebot.net account and then u can do w/e u want with it)
@lamlam make 2 currency:
1. Your mentioned vT$ (not T$ on thread)
2. Currency X which can only be obtained through likes, comments, etc (activity in general), can be used to buy forum add-ons (Sub, market thread, auto bump, etc)
+ Should implement content locker on premium posts paying through X
+ People will be able to transfer X
+ X can't be bought by forum-generated source and can only be transferred between users
I personally disagree with the new T$:
- We shouldn't turn TBN into a gambling site which might attract unwanted members
- If it's used for marketplace, implement vT$ instead. There is no use of the new T$ this way (no guarantee since people can instant withdraw). vT$ is far more superior due to verifications and funds holding in case any chargeback happens
- Any forum add-ons could be bought through legacy currency like Paypal, Cryptos, why should we need to exchange to new T$?
Edit: The main reason why old T$ didn't have much value is lacking useful forum add-ons (What is the benefits of Avatar Plus or Username changing beside tweaking your own profile? ), Thread bumping, forum notifier, banner ads, content locks or sticky thread will be useful for forum sellers, and if they saw the uses of its, they will buy it -> Users can turn T$ into money -> they will be active for it, and the loop goes on.
However, we will need strict rules for it, such as, members who spam will have their T$ cleared or somewhat like that
Utility apart from forum use for T$ would be speculation.
If you ( lamlam or TBN admin) is down for a smart contract for T$ then i am willing to work for you guys.
I offer two Platform on whicg T$ could be based :
After smart contract is made we can right at the very time make T$ trade-able on Forkdelat and etheredelta.
There are much more plan to rejuvenate T$ and depends on whether you are open to communicate this.
Good Idea @lamlam , But some compensation should be given to members who owned alot of T$ previously. Or Make a new additional currency say PT$ (Promo T$ - Previously Owned T$) and award them to users. But their should be certain Limits/Conditions on this like:
i) You can use X amount of PT$ while purchasing Goods or Sub from TBN.
Example - Let a member has 100 T$( new one ) and 200 PT$, and Sub cost 100T$(new one) then he/she can use 20% of PT$ on purchase and pay rest with T$( new one). So It cost around 80T$ + 20PT$ == 100T$.
ii) You can use PT$ to make a thread in Marketplace,But it will cost 10PT$ or 5T$.
