The Privatix team releases updates once every 2 weeks on Tuesdays. The next update will be published on 26 December 2017. The numbered calendar weeks can be found here. News and important announcements are published immediately.
Global fight for net neutrality
An event that will have an enormous effect on the future of the Internet is due to happen in a couple of days’ time, on 14 December 2017. At Privatix, we believe net neutrality is a basic human right and that the best means for ensuring it remains a human right is technology and — for the moment at least — bringing pressure to bear on lawmakers. We invite members of the community to study the topic and join the global online uprising.
As mentioned in our previous update, we understand that the majority of our token holders are holding their tokens for the long term and that “immediate exchange listing at any cost” is not their primary concern.
However, many token holders want PRIX to be listed on the top exchanges as soon as possible. We understand this, but as we have already said: we will not pay crazy prices for listings.
It was our intention to list our token within 2 to 4 weeks of the token sale, and we did everything we possibly could to make that happen. Unfortunately, market conditions right now are totally crazy. Exchanges are not just overflowing, some are even collapsing. For them, at this moment, new coin listings are not the most important issue. They have enough on their hands just trying to sustain regular work and avoid downtime.
This is why new coin listings are taking much longer than expected, and there is very little we can do about it — apart from wait. In addition, we’ve decided not to list our token on the lower-volume exchanges but rather to focus on the bigger ones. We are in the process of reviewing our listing application. In any event, with time, coin liquidity will be good enough, so there’s no cause for concern in the long run.
Token value vision
Unlike many other post-TokenSale companies, we have no intention of pumping up our token with empty news and promises. Neither do we have any intention of influencing the token price in any way — we shall simply develop our product and let the market decide the value. We definitely think that some level of PR activity is necessary; however, for us, development is far more important for project success and future token value.
We could set up an endless series of competitions and release our tokens for free as a lottery for re-tweeting etc. But in our opinion, this would have absolutely no effect in the long run. Give us time to focus on R&D rather than having to waste time brainstorming brainless PR campaigns for social media.
We are looking for talented, passionate people who are inspired by our mission and our goals. Remote and in-office jobs in Ukraine, Russia, Israel and Kazakhstan.
We will publish a full list of available positions next week. Meanwhile, please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and put your name forward as a candidate for the community management team (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, English), JS/PHP/Python/C# developers, traffic obfuscation specialists, VPN protocol wizards & network engineers, mobile & desktop software developers.
We are looking for professionals with more than 5 years’ experience in their own field and an acceptable level of English. We don’t hire juniors — sorry, but as a small company we don’t have the time required to invest in your education.
Our team prefers to focus primarily on the Privatix.io project. As part of this strategy, we have already closed our oldest VPN service, 5vpn.net, and moved all subscriptions to our privatix.com service — we are also working on re-structuring our teams and new hirings.
Our team worked hard over the token sale period because, apart from all the token sale tasks, we also handled a massive ramp up of our Privatix.com Free VPN service, which already has more than 1,000,000 users.
We see the Privatix.com service as one of our “secrets weapons”, to be used to gain mass adoption and faster growth than our competitors once the blockchain version is released. We have therefore decided to outsource this service to a separate unit within our company and keep it developed and running to gain more and more users, who we can later move to the blockchain solution.
