forkmasari.sh website that allows you to create your own coin derived from Masari

Status: Seeking community approval
Target: 1000.0 MSR


Why?

A bit of fun, it would generally improve the crypto space if less forks were made from the outdated original cryptonote reference implementation. Furthermore, it would really drive more attention to Masari than it would to the resultant project.

How much?

  • Domain $40
  • Hosting expenses $3/month
  • Paying me, which will also end up allowing me to keep other services I'm running for MSR up for many more months such as the forum, telegram bridge, etc.

Milestones?

  • Buy everything needed - 1 day
  • Implement the full script - 10 days

If I'm not funded?

I'll probably still make it happen anyway, it would be nice to be supported however! This isn't the most important idea in the world.

How is simplifying something to a point where anyone with a single brain cell can create their own coin going to "generally improve crypto space" exactly?

Because people are going to do this anyway. It already exists, it just uses the existing crusty forknote implementation. Wouldn't you rather have a bunch of relatively up-to-date shitcoins than a bunch of true, honest to God shit coins? It doesn't directly improve the crypto space, but I think it will indirectly be a good thing. Safe drugs vs the bad stuff you get from a shady dealer.

This sounds like a good idea, and excellent PR. Would each spinoff coin need it's own miners or would they be on the Masari network, like an ERC-20 token? Wen donation address?

Well making them sidechains would be interesting, but would probably end in disaster for the coin. It'd be kind of like a DDoS for the network if people were to start fads (like cryptokitties on ETH) on our chain. Although I'm sure that'd be a massive pump for the coin, I'm not sure it's the stable future you'd want. The idea I'm proposing is simply making it easy to fork the project and change variables such as the name of the coin, premine, coin amount, etc. Could also be a way of funding MSR if we charge for compiled binaries too.
