Hi everyone. This topic is addressed to both public and hive teams. Bright thoughts come out of the blue and I saw the site in a different prospective. Let’s see what we have at the top - main categories:
What Is SmartCash?
Now let’s think of what is missing here? I’d say we are missing the core thing. The thing, that SmartCash is all about. I saw many times here on forum “SmartCash is not an investment”. Then why, why our website looks like it is selling SmartCash as an investment?
What is SmartCash? Ultimately, we are aimed to become a wonderful payment solution, aren’t we? So we have to give some credit to buyers and merchants, right? Have a look how I see main categories:
What Is SmartCash?
Shop with SmartCash
I think (I may be wrong) SmartNodes currently don’t need to have a dedicated link on a main page - it is just technical means of blockchain functionality, right? Yes, it adds to price stabilization, that’s why I may be wrong in whether or not it’s a time to move the link. Though I guess the number of nodes looks good enough for the system to work efficiently. Also, not everyone is able host a node due to a number of reasons. The link can happily migrate to Resourses category.
Now to the new categories. Shop with SmartCash should include a nicely presented list of all shops currently accepting SmartCash. The list should include shopping categories and filter options - well-bulit for the brighter future where we should see hundreds and thousands of merchants.
For merchants category should introduce SmartCash as a payment method with transaction capacity and average time data with the mention of upcoming InstaPay. Category should include tasty and easy to use guides on current APIs, technologies and plugins (like Woocommerce) for merchants to accept SmartCash as a payment method. The value of SmartCash not only belongs to the community, but to the adoption and the real use cases. I see the merchants are the ones that should be currently attracted with appealing and easy integration guides.
Things for the future. The Resourses category may be better with some charts and stats like transaction per day, transaction fees, hash rate and difficulty (looking weird though lately), unique addresses count etc.
I hope to hear what all the community thinks about new categories. Is it the right time to start working in this direction? Currently SmartCash website does not speak to people outside of crypto-space.
