I just put this in another topic too but curious what you all think about
Perhaps the ETN team could get M1 retailers to add an option like a donation/pay it forward button for those who got the means to help pay for M1’s for those in countries who could use them. Also, if Electroneum itself is going to be selling the phones retail they could also add a donation button for M1’s via the ETN app too. ( Thanks for this additional idea @Plankton! )
There could be an opt in section for those who don’t have the money to get a phone and as donations come in people can get their M1 phone fully paid for using a next in line list and keep getting more phones out to people as the donations continue to come in.
Say we get hundreds or a couple thousand people who donate 1-10$, you can imagine the outcome. That’d get M1’s in many hands of people who need them all over the world and bolster sales overall in addition to looking really good for any retailer adding this feature. Something like this would also help with brand recognition for all the retailers as well providing this option & spread rapidly by word of mouth.
I think a lot of people would get behind this idea as well as the retailers if it was presented to them.
