LEO Roundtable: Announcing Announcements That We Can't Yet Announce

in LeoFinance3 months ago (edited)

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


The number of projects we have currently being developed is more than we've ever had before. With our new microblogging platform launching on Hive in the next few weeks, LEO's standalone sidechain entering testnet and our new LeoFi app, the first Quarter of 2021 is going to be our busiest yet.

If you've been watching our Discord, then you'll know that we've got some running jokes about announcing announcements. There are simply so many projects being built under the LeoFinance umbrella separately but together (as our dev team continues to expand) that the announcements are piling up.

As these projects get closer to public launch, we'll continue to release details about them. Earlier this week, the LEO roundtable crew met for a quick podcast and in the first 20 minutes or so, we talked about all of the announcements and major developments that are right around the corner.

I'm feeling proud of the title I came up with for this clip. We were actually not going to release this episode since we talked about projects that we're not ready to announce details on yet, but I ended up censoring all of the private information that's not yet public.

The next 3 projects we launch will blow your mind. I don't think anyone is expecting the pace at which these projects will roll out and the sheer magnitude of what they mean for LeoFinance.

LEO is going decentralized on our new governance layer. The testnet is ready and we're going to shoot it into public testing very soon. Along with this, a new governance token will be launched and airdropped to LEO POWER hodlers (and WLEO LPs). More announcements on this will follow.

LeoFi is shaping up nicely as we get ready to exit the design phase and start development.

The new microblogging app we're developing (Project _____) is getting closer and closer to launch as well. This launch will also include a new microblogging-centric token along with a mining token. Both of these will be airdropped to:

  • LEO POWER hodlers
  • WLEO Liquidity Providers
  • LEOM stakers
  • LEOMM stakers

We've been quiet on the public announcements over the past 1-2 weeks. We're just gearing up for a long list of developments that we need to roll into testing and eventually into production.

Stay tuned, the announcements of announcements are just beginning.

I heard about a airdrop and..Screenshot_20210114114700_Chrome.jpg

It is nice to know that their are 2 airdrops coming. Also, I think the fact that people need to have LEO staked for 14 days to receive the airdrop is a good way to stop people from only coming in just for the airdrop.

A question: Let's say we are already LP holders. If we were to stake more LEO between the 14 day period, would the airdrop amount still go up? I believe most of us are either staking or buying LBI with or without the airdrop.

@khaleelkazi I know I've already raised this (@taskmaster4450 denied this) that it all sounds like abandoning Leo token.
What sorts of decisions are going to be taken? As far as I know those governance tokens showed to be ineffective in decision making thus far.

um no that's ridiculous. All of our projects are centered around LEO and drive value back to the LEO token economy.

This is LeoFinance after all.

Governance tokens are not ineffective when done right. This will offer us the ability to run LEO as a decentralized second layer. More details will be released as that project gets closer to launch.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Can't wait to hear more! I'm minor holder, but still excited.

I am curious why you chose to have a separate token for governance instead of using the LEO token for that.

I'm guessing because the liquidity pool hack made the LEO distribution very centralized with some major LEO whales.

If this announcement doesn’t (re)start a FOMO... :D

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

haha it will be funny to see the reactions

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

2 major airdrops.Yes,yes,yes,please. 😂

Keep talking dirty and censor that shit. 😂

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We've got a lot more to talk about, this post is just the start to our upcoming announcements of announcements

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Should we stake now?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The snapshot date hasn't been announced yet :)

but yes, if you stake now your stake will be eligible for the airdrops once the snapshot(s) happen

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

So does the Airdrop to people with LEOM translate into being airdropped the Mining token for the microblogging app and not the token itself? thanks

Hey, yes the airdrop to miners (LEOM and LEOMM hodlers) will be the microblogging miner.

LEO / WLEO LPs will get airdropped the microblogging token itself.

The point of these airdrops is just an early set of distribution to the most vibrant community of token hodlers. Not all of the supply will be airdropped as that would just be copy/paste LEO. A % of the ___ token and ____M token will be airdropped for initial distribution.

i see cool thanks

Hmmm, with this response, it thus means that a new community replicating LeoFinance is evolving and that's the Micro blogging community. Are we sure it won't pressure down LEO price?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The fact that this is a game changes is too little said, it will shetter everything from the ground up. The microblogging has potential to onboard tens of thousands and even millions of users, thus it will be an explosion of decentralized micro blogging. This might be X10 X100 X1000 LEO Finance market cap, so let's bring it alive and rule the microblogging!!!

This comment has me rethinking everything, I'm trying to stay cool and be like, it could happen. You brought out the gambler in me that says let it ride baby!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The time of the micro blogging app is very timely. Perhaps we could have President Donald Trump join us there having been evicted in Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Haahahah! I love it, like a mad genius at work! Keep it up @khaleelkazi, you and team are just killing it!!!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Like a post about a future post and thought about doing one, but doubt I could get away with this. You guys have no time to sit and chat as you are all meant to be working and are delaying things. Good to know there is much more stuff coming and will wait patiently.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I just hope these new developments would contagiously grow other Hive communities and tokens. Your prayer too.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

So exciting! I am super geeked about all of this. You folks have really been putting in the over time to get all of this up and running. It is so much appreciated!

Inquisitive investor :
So how many custom coins will the Leo chain have?
@khaleelkazi : yes

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

  1. LEO
  2. LEOM
  3. LEOMM
  4. LEOGOV
  5. LEO_______

Soon, we'll have the LEOTRADE for commerce. lol

LEOMM had some serious gains few days ago. Unfortunately I owned only a tiny bit of miner tokens. As LEOM was relatively undervalued I put some orders. I was about to write about it, but as usual I get sidetracked and ended up writing two long articles covering Wikipedia, blockchain and few other things.


BTW I have a real frustrating (but also kind of loving it) relationship with these announcements. It's doing a great job building hype. It's even buying me more time to accumulate more tokens before the airdrop. But I really need to learn more.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Am I missing something or doesn’t simply delegating HP to @leo.voter earn a better LEO return than staking the miners does?

I haven't done the math. It was only a minor stake in miners and I mainly stake LEO and earn curation as my preferred way of earning LEO (apt from posting). Thank you for mentioning this. I'll leave the calculations to someone else. Manual curation is more fun than other methods.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Expectation over 9000.

I have everything except LEOMM, my body is ready.

Yo, bless the guy asking the real questions we all want to know like "what is a sidechain." Normies like me find great feel represented haha

not enough leo :D

Wow, I have heard about the microblogging features but never imagined about a microblogging-centric token!

Great way to encourage people, especially those who are holding LEO.
I'm powering up every bit of LEO I get! :D

LEO leaving Hive-Engine?

Did I hear that right, or am I having a flashback?

If I heard it right, please more specificity.

Thank you for continually keeping us on suspense and eager to see the materialization of Project _______. I hope it'll be the Twitter-killer Project.

Kudos to us on this fast pace of growth. Indeed, LeoFInance would be celebrating first Anniversary on Hive with style, value, and Luxury.

Thanks so much for the description of Steem Engine as a centralised single node @khaleelkazi. I was talking in another channel yesterday about the hack and couldn't understand the mechanics of it. Your short description allowed the penny to drop as to how it could happen and why building a side chain with more sides nodes means it would be decentralised. You have a wonderful knack of explaining things in a way that I can understand. I can't tell you how helpful that is! 😁

It also helped me to understand what was going on with the data I'm missing that I need for my tax return. Now I have a picture of Steem Engine as a side node in my head it makes sense as to why I can't find what I'm looking for with the tool I've been using.

The number of projects we have currently being developed is more than we've ever had before.

Amen.

I'm very excited with the microblogging thing.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Good job guys!
However, this post title reminded me of a certain person 😂

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for this "sneak peek" @khaleelkazi. Now starting into 2021, as a relative newcomer, I can look back at what I wrote after reading through your July 2020 "Roadmap" post and feel quite good about my "put your money where your mouth is" decision. Which had quickly followed my "cornerstone" decision of no longer listening to all of the "echo chamber" comments / posts "driving" every Hive blockchain participant to power up every last HIVE, no matter what, as to do otherwise was uhhh ... "sedition" ... (<= given current events, chosen intentionally 😉)

Your loyal support of the Hive blockchain is readily apparent to any "old timer" like me. I hope it is both noticed and appreciated. I'd say deeply appreciated, given what you have accomplished. I could say a lot more 🧐 here, but probably best to "stick a sock in it" ... 😉

It is only Jan. 15th, but others would be well advised to take seriously your "you ain't seen nothing yet" claims here in this post. I for one am looking forward to hearing more, when you deem in the best interest of us all to hear it.

In the meantime, whatever you are clearly doing to keep an incredible development team producing at a remarkably high level, keep it up! 🚀🦁👍

Why hadn't you previously announced that you'd be announcing announcements? Amazing marketing guys. You're going to have people buying the rumors that there will be rumors.

waoo I see a world of possibilities ... I just hope that someone will include in future projects an alliance with my favorite game where I win crypto .... axie infinity .... I don't know just saying ... there is leave the idea

I think Leo should have a night/dark mode on the site. For me, it would be useful :)

leo is always one step ahead :D

It's great all the new things they are doing! I am so happy for this community!

Khal, I would like very much to be able to do healing work, I wanted to know what possibilities there were to receive some little delegation in my account, to be able to carry out that work.

It could support the Spanish speaking community in posts that are related to trading, economics, finance, Defi.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Lots of bleeps... Almost sounded like a new musical track {LOL} I guess that's all in sync with the post title :) Actually, the post title made me open the post in the first place and postpone my other activities with 30 to 40 minutes to watch the video and write the comments to this blog post. But that aside.

Super you decided to provide a new token to the upcoming Leo microblogging service. I think this is a good decision since I don't believe at all in all-purpose tokens with the same algorithms and distribution models mixed between different type of services. You've seen all the issues around DBuzz.

Regarding the possibility to download complete Twitter history. Super nice feature, but don't you think this may cause problems when history is large and few to many initiate such downloads? Twitter users may have up to 100's of thousands of tweets.

Will all the content of Leo Finance and the new Microblogging service continue to be on the HIVE chain, or will this be moved to the new Leo sidechain?

Can you explain us in a few sentences how you managed to speed up the development of the testnet with 6 to 8 months? We are (I am) very interested to know a little more how this was possible?

Something else: Will, the Leo team provide a toolbox for eg crypto news sites to integrate with HIVE? Integrations could be as simple as another post channels, or maybe further integrated to provide the crypto news site tokenised comment section? Is this something for which the LEO team can actually market this to these crypto news companies, as well as help these companies to integrate with Leo?

How is your view of DBuzz? They recently told me they have concentrated on onboarding crypto (news) services.

Super progress and impressed with the speed you guys roll :)
