My idea is that with the upcoming release of the streaming app and then a new site that works better, we have an opportunity at that moment, because there will be a surge in artists/listeners joining our system. We need to take advantage of this moment. I suggest that Musicoin.org be prepared and staffed to begin speeding up the artist verification process so that it is fast - same day or better, preferably 1 hour.
Get some interns at the nearby college and pay them the going rate (use $MUSIC UBI stash if needed) to staff the workstations to speed up the process. Or, pay the ambassadors to do it remotely and pay $MUSIC for every artist verified, whatever it takes, and keep it going that way.
The most glaring negative thing I notice most here is that artists are complaining about the verification wall. Our competitor is stealing some spotlight by being able to say they are the biggest, based on artist population. Lets fight back by making it easier to be verified, and coincide that with the streaming app release.
We need to maximize the window of opportunity that the release of the streaming app will give us, especially if it is before our competitors release theirs.
