Taproots has been under development for more than two years and, at long last, is fully functional! (Visit the demo site to try it out.)
Below are the stages of our launch plan. In Stage 1, creators are largely ‘invite’ only, with some discretion on our part about broader access. Funds received are disbursed only to creators. In Stage 2, limits on who can become a creator are lifted and users who have cash balances can request and receive disbursements, as well.
Stage 1 Goal
Almost all of this sum would go towards advertising the project and its launch, attempting to raise the funds needed to reach stages 2 and 3.
Stage 2 Goal
This amount would pay for the facilities and the staffing required to hire 3-4 people, full time, for 2 years.
Stage 3 Goal
The ideal amount required to maximize the probability of Taproot’s success. It would pay for the facilities and the staffing required to hire 12-20 individuals, full time, for 4-5 years.
