Webchain was added to CoinIMP, it's been tested and it's fully working.
-People are already withdrawing WEB from their CoinIMP wallets.
-We set payout to 100% so every mined WEB goes to your wallet (minus orphan blocks rate, since webchain has it higher than monero).
-Webchain withdraw threshold is much lower that the threshold for Monero.
-No marketing actions have been done yet with our users because we are still working on changing the main page to have coinimp.com look like an advertisement site for WEB.
-The marketing campaign to inform our that WEB can be mined via CoinIMP should be started later this month.
The team keeps working on other projects related to WEB that should be revealed soon.
Some people approached us with the idea of airdrops. We are against it - or at least against the concept shared on Wikipedia saying "A cryptocurrency Airdrop is a distribution of a cryptocurrency token or coin, usually for free, to a large number of wallet addresses, and primarily implemented as a way of gaining attention and new followers resulting in a larger user-base and a wider disbursement of coins. ".
The "usually for free" part is what we disagree with. It's so easy to start treating a coin as if it was worthless and start giving it away for free. We had no ICO and we are against using any airdrops for Webchain. It's simply too valuable in our eyes to give it away just like that. (small, limited competitions to win some WEB are planned by our marketing team though)
We think to give some coin a value, we cannot give it away for free in bulk. So, to get some WEB you have to work on it.
No free WEB out there for anyone!
We are planning to go live with an unannounced project we have been working on for the last months. Our goal is to run it in September this year. This project will be based on WEB and is going to pave a way and show how WEB can be used by other teams too.
It will be an important step in making sure that Webchain is actually used for what it was built.
Some time after that, latest in October (if we are lucky - maybe still at the end of September), we plan to reveal our biggest project, the one we have been working on for the last weeks. A project that is going to create actual demand for WEB from regular users (not only crypto maniacs) without them knowing much about cryptocurrency topic. This project - our biggest hope for mass adoption - will go live this year. When exactly - we don't know yet, but before 2019.
