Working Group Session - 03/16/20


Key Takeaways

  • Innovative business models will emerge from significant community experimentation: Many of the ideas/projects that we’ve been RICE scoring are about educational resources because we want to make Clarity and Stacks 2.0 in general more accessible to the broader community.
  • Beyond educational resources, what kinds of frameworks and tools can we build together that would directly lead to business models on Stacks 2.0? –@njordhov
  • App Stacking is one idea that leverages the Stacking mechanism to create a market where users can support and share in the profits of legitimate, innovative apps and services. It is also designed to be collusion-resistant, further fostering a more collaborative and equitable ecosystem. –@njordhov
  • We should also think about the ways in which we can leverage the Proof of Transfer (PoX) mechanism to enable new business models. For example, in addition to forwarding BTC to STX holders, the PoX mechanism could be extended one layer further to forward STX tokens to holders of native app coins (that is, holders who hold coins native to specific apps in the Stacks ecosystem). –@patrick
  • Upcoming Stacks 2.0 public testnet is an excellent opportunity for us to experiment with Clarity and to see what business models would actually be possible on Stacks 2.0.

Next Steps:

  1. Add any remaining ideas for how we can leverage Clarity, STX, PoX, Stacking, and Stacks 2.0 in general to the RICE scoring template. (Please notify @jrmith or @whoabuddy if you do.)
  2. Complete the RICE scoring exercise before next Monday’s meeting. (If you don’t see a spreadsheet for yourself, please feel free to create one by duplicating the template sheet.)
