Hi @swissinfomatt (belated) welcome to Fintech Genome and grusse from across the country. I am a Brit living in Bern and a fan of Swiss Info and a passionate believer in free speech and protection of civil liberties.
So, this is very interesting to me and I think that protection of whistleblowers is increasingly critical in a world lurching towards authoritarianism with a corporate controlled media and media business model that no longer funds investigative journalism. In short, All The Presidents Men is one of my favorite movies. Wikileaks broke the ground but was deeply flawed. So as a human being, I would like Trutheum to work.
First, I should say I have absolutely no idea what the Swiss authorities think about whistleblowers. I believe that free speech and protection of civil liberties is deeply central to the Swiss way, but I have no insight into government thinking. I live in Bern because it is a lovely city that is close to some great skiing and the fact that it is the seat of the Swiss Federal Government is entirely coincidental.
So I am also intrigued by the Trutheum crowdfunding project that's poised to launch later this month. For those who are also new to Trutheum, this Cryptoverse explainer is very good:
As an ICO, what I like is:
It is capped at 3k ETH (about US$1m) which seems appropriate for a project at the White Paper stage.
I can envisage using the tokens. What happens to the price is quite coincidental. That is how the early buyers of Ether and Bitcoin felt and not the speculative frenzy of so much in ICO land today.
Thanks for giving this some attention. Entshuldigung dass mein Deutsch is nicht so gut (note, must get multilingual capability deployed on Fintech Genome).
