The value of a crypto token is simply what one can buy with it. Why not open up a marketplace where anyone can offer services for LTBcoin or even a percentage of LTBcoin vs. bitcoin - for example one could offer a product with up to 40 % paid with LTBcoin - the rest with bitcoin. Then let LTBcoin be listed on exchanges and find a real market value.
LTBcoin is different from many other coins because there's a genuine network behind it - and a broadcasting mechanism - as the marketplace grew it would grew it would increase the value of the coin.
If this started to take off then more thought would be needed as to how coins are distributed - to make sure everything is done fairly. Probably forming some kind of committee to make sure the coins weren't just enriching a few folks and that all distributions are fully transparent. But it seems a shame not to leverage the value of the network - it would be a good example demonstrating how networks can inherently self-capitalize.
It seems as though LTBcoin is being deliberately kept back as a toy currency now. It would only take a small shift for it to really take off.
Is it a matter of preserving LTB's innocence vs. the cutthroat game of alt-coins? Or preserving LTB's neutrality? Concerns about legal issues?
With all the effort to work on LTBcoin - even to the point of adding accounting and tax features - we may as well let it grow up and jump out into the world - it might be a powerful currency.
Plus it would be instructive to see a coin boosted by a genuine marketplace of individuals willing to accept it, rather than just pure speculation as many alt-coins are.
The power of the LTB network should not be underestimated. Would love to hear peoples' thoughts on this.
