This is NOT an official roadmap, but just the START of discussion as to what should be added to 2019 road map, I’m quite sure certain PIVX departments may already have plans set, but none of them are public yet, so they should feel free to add them to this thread so that we are all on the same page.

Excited to see what other ‘Firsts’ PIVX can chalk up!

Keep it purple people!

I like it…feels do-able to me, and provides a nice expansion outwards of the PIVX ecosystem.

Also not in there are events/meetings/etc, which only beefs out this list more.


#3

I’ve pinged Buer in Discord, hopefully he’ll chime in here, I’ve also added “Lead by – ? Cost --?” so we can plan for costs (where possible) and let people go to project leads easily.


#4

“FIAT gateways – PIVX will establish at least 2 FIAT/CC/Bank transfer gateways, preferably visa/mastercard directly to PIVX”

By this do you mean the PIVX being directly available for purchase somewhere like BitPanda/Coinbase, itself a fiat gateway, or actually owning the fiat>PIVX process?

Though I guess the answer to this is ‘whatever works’, right?


#5

I mean somewhere like Bitpanda, but ownership of its own assets such as gateways is also something I really would like to see happen, I think with our new foundation structuring happening this will allow us to build these sorts of things from the community up.


#6

Love it! Great work PIVX, as always!


#7

Speaking strictly from a hardware-availability PoV, this isn’t something that is likely to become readily available within Q1/Q2 2019. There are very very few SoC’s that would be ideal for such a project to be effective, and they are in very very tight supply at the moment (I myself have been on a waiting list since October for one such SoC).

Given the above hardware short supply issues, developing a custom software solution would likely extend the timeframe requirement even further. Uncertainty in exactly what hardware will be available, and the differences between potential hardware options makes writing software a pain in the rear…especially if this were to also incorporate any integration with display accessories.


#8

Thanks Fuzz, I think it would be wise to remove this totally until there is some solution at least on the horizon.


#9

Would be great to get in contact with the guys running dream market or similar darknet markets, because pivx is way more anonym then bitcoin. That would help adaption very much.


#10

With that being illegal, it would be hard to find someone prepared to openly flaunt the law


#11

disagree, USD is not becoming illegal cause people by there weed with it. pivx is just another currency and it willl never get a wider adoption if the community stays dreaming about pivx on amazon or aliexpress.
Only getting used buy lil shops no one worldwide gives a fuck about is not productive in my eyes.
I heared about bitcoin in 2014 due the darknet markets otherwise we would not have this chat.
I buy there specialised hacking tools for my job as pentester and have a solid market place that gives me more security then to buy over deep web forums.
pivx should lay its focus on the biggest advantage over bitcoin, the anonymity !


#12

OK, I’ll tell you what, why don’t you do it?

You are in the community right? put forward a proposal for however much money it will cost to get it done and go do it. If you’re not afraid of the legal implications then put your neck on the line and prove me wrong.

I’ve got no moral issue with it, and I’m not dreaming of amazon or Ali express. I just have a healthy fear of U.S LE, despite not living in U.S they dont seem to mind flying around the world to lock people up.

but If you know the law better then please, please, please… prove me wrong.
