The Secret Market Committee Charter

Secret Market Committee Charter

I. Purpose

The Secret Market Committee exists to spread broad awareness of Secret Network assets, to increase visibility of new assets on the network, and to ensure the success of the implementation of Secret Market as it develops and grows.

With active development underway, the purpose of the Secret Market Committee will be to support the burgeoning platform, assist in providing feedback regarding the use of the platform, assets on the platform, and to help determine a positive, successful path for the growth of Secret Assets into the future.

The Secret Market Committee offers a path for traders, speculators, and degens to promote asset awareness within the Secret Network ecosystem and beyond. We intend to achieve this by highlighting top contributors on the site, providing opportunities for compensation from a Secret Market Node to incentivize committee contributors, and to actively promote the program and services offered by Secret Market.

“Traders, speculators, and degens are the lifeblood of crypto. They drive the volume, hype, and excitement needed to grow and support new assets, networks, and DeFi platforms. We recognize that grassroots viral marketing is integral to the success of projects and aim to capitalize on the value of individuals engaging the ecosystem in a mutually beneficial manner”
(Secret Market Committee)

The Secret Market Committee wants you!

II. Membership

Committee Leadership: The Secret Market Committee shall be led by IOWA𝕊CERO and co-lead committee members in good standing with the Secret Network community. Committee leads will coordinate with the developers of Secret Market to provide feedback from the committee membership and community and to provide initiatives to stimulate growth and adoption of secret assets. Committee leads are beholden to the secret market community. Membership comes with varying degrees of commitment depending on individual desire to contribute and add value.

The Secret Market Committee aims to be an inclusive place for any community participants interested in being involved.

III. Meetings

The Secret Market Committee will conduct business of the committee through an ongoing schedule of weekly conference calls and telegram communications.

The Secret Market Committee meetings will be held during degen prime time, UTC 10:00 (22:00) Saturday of each week, which translates to 3PM PDT (15:00), 5PM CDT (17:00), & 6PM EDT (18:00), respectively. These meeting will be held as a conference voice call in the Secret Market telegram group. This meeting time allows committee members to look at the week’s content ahead of time and establish a weekly plan. These meetings will aim to be less than 30 minutes for important topics, with lengthier discussions as members see fit.

The Secret Market Committee agenda shall loosely be structured as follows:
• Review of previous week’s activity
• Gather site feedback
• Collect ideas for improvement
• Assess and execute initiatives moving forward

IV. Closing Thoughts, Directives, and Rules to live by.

2. Nothing we say is financial advice.
3. Your carefully picked arguments can easily be ignored.
4. The contents of this charter are subject to change at the consensus of the community.
5. You can only troll hard if you join the committee.
6. No sex in the champagne room.
7. Moon or bust.

Soft Roadmap breakdown:

Secret Market “Soft Roadmap”

Phase 1

  1. Clone core cmc & coingecko functionality. This means the traditional asset list from these sorts of sites and a total market cap for them. Starting off, only secret and secret assets.
  2. Hackernews clone. This means cloning this basic functionality to start off with so we have a board where users can Shit post about assets.

Phase 2

  1. Augment core asset list beyond secret assets. Decide via Secret Market call what assets to support.

  2. Augment hacker news core feature to support highlighting assets being discussed. Spec out how highlighting will work feature wise.

  3. Secretswap swap integration into site.*

Phase 3

Phase 1 isn’t technically difficult for developers, will be the quickest to accomplish with difficulty ramping up as the work develops
Intention to increase assets supported
Promoting assets visually and interactively through thread posts
Desire to move quickly and make MVP available
Open floor
-SEFI development need reiterated, advised Enigma is working on this
-Committee member looking for Devs for personal project, advised to pursue find a team and check out Dev committee meetings

Agenda for Secret Market Committee Meeting – 05/15/2021

Review of Last Weeks Call

  • Developer Jacob is Going Full Time

  • Review Soft Roadmap

  • Discuss proposed SM marketing initiative holdup (HQ branding assets still MIA)

  • No access to SS Twitter at this time

  • SM Twitter Deck set up, seek interested volunteers and set ad-hoc mission meeting for this initiative

Things going on in the ecosystem:

  • SecretHeroesNFT launched

  • NFT Marketplace still under construction

  • FATS committee possibility?

  • Ongoing discussions around committee structure, committees restructuring and expanding roles

  • SecretSwap committee – reassessing how this could work based on community feedback
    Open Floor
    End of Line

It has been decided after a process of great deliberation, after careful evaluation of community feedback, and through certain necessities of the product development team, that the Secret Market effort will be taking a different direction and this product will be retained under the Secret Nodes domain. Greater areas of demand have been identified within the network where my efforts may be of better service and I am also having to redirect my focus to a different committee. As a result of these circumstances, the Secret Market Committee is hereby dissolved until such a time as the community or product development team deems it’s revival beneficial.
