The way I understand it from hearing the MOB team’s words - they are doing absolutely nothing about it and if an exchange wants to list it they can go ahead, but the MOB team is not involved in this process (hence no dd etc). Not sure how that works either legally or practically but my guess is that exchanges just buy huge amounts.
I’m no insider, just interpreting things I’ve heard over time.
Some insight on this topic by Charles Hoskinson on the Lex Fridman Podcast:
In essence: For Cardano/Ada, Bitfinex supposedly suggested that they’d list Ada for 5 Million dollars.
Whether this is common practice or not - I don’t know. But if it is, it’s easy to understand MobileCoin’s strategy to not pursue listings from their side: The strategy, In my own words, is: exchange listings will come when the time is ripe.
And as Charles Hoskinson mentions: decentralized exchanges might replace exchanges of today.
So no new exchange listings in the past 6+ months? That’s a bit of a disappointment. I was really hoping for some developments on that front. IMO it wouldn’t hurt to do at least a little bit of proactive marketing / communication, targeted at exchanges specifically.
Can anyone who wants to buy MOB do so right now? I guess the answer is in almost all circumstances yes. So what’s the point in more exchange listings? To artificially blow up the price for a bit of FOMO and lambos? Please just no. This here is one of the few cryptocurrency projects with an actual focus on technology and real world utility. If 1 MOB stays 1 USD forever as long as it’s actually usable, works as promised and does not need several middle income countries’ energy outputs to transfer 500 $ to 5 different wallets I’m very happy.
I hope everyone in pursuit of a few quick bucks looks for the next ELON_MARS_DOGE_CAT_SUPER_LAMBO_MOON_COIN
