Dear community, I had the honor and pleasure to join the invitation of WEG Bank near Munich on 25 June. As I was the only community representative there, I want to share my impressions with you. It was a mixed group of Tokenpay, WEG Bank and Nimiq guys. The CEO of WEG Bank, Mattthias von Hauff, invited us all to a lovely beer garden, and we had a great evening until like 11.30 pm.
At this point, many thanks to Matthias for your outstanding hospitality! I felt very welcome and familiar from the beginning. Believe you me, Matthias is bound to have a bright future in his business endeavors. His sharp mind and very progressive mindset make him an excellent partner for Nimiq, and I am confident that they will achieve great things together. Thanks for answering my many questions regarding OASIS, taxes, the whole process behind it etc.! It really sounds like you will create a very convenient and user-friendly crypto payment system that will definitely find its place in the world.
I also had the pleasure to meet five guys of team Nimiq: Philipp, Jasmin, Basti, Julian and Tammo. It is a team you want to be part of after spending an evening with them. Very open-minded and informal, yet very tech-savvy and absolutely dedicated to the project. These are people that really love what they do, and they appear to do everything for their mission and vision.
So, regarding any leaks: I am confident that WEG Bank will come up with some news in the not too far future. Nimiq is working hard to release the new homepage (and cashlinks have top priority now!). The basic requirements for “Sign-on” with Nimiq are also there, they just need time to do it properly. Philipp talked about current considerations and parameters regarding Albatross and PoS (and dPoS), account privacy, the transition period from PoW and the 1:1 transfer of current coins to Nimiq 2.0 – which all sounded very reasonable to me. Thanks for being patient with my questions
All in all, I am confident that we can be part of a success story that is just about to be written. Happy to be here. I will try my best to contribute to the success of Nimiq by raising its awareness, because we as community also have a major role to play. Last sentence: Matthias and Philipp, you guys should put your heads together even more often – the output will be golden.
