We are glad for joining Crowdholding and are looking for a feedback on our solutions.

Open source is gaining popularity with the advance of such services as GitHub that make a distant collaboration for developers a lot easier. However, The quality of open source software and the average speed of its development are by no means worse than those of proprietary software. The main issue is the absence of support and set-up services as well as lack of customer-oriented approach to development.

The OpenGift platform is the first step to creating an ecosystem, where sponsors and investors could get a clear picture of a project’s progress, problems it aspires to solve, interconnection with other projects and its importance for the ecosystem.

As a result, our platform will enable companies and users to cut a substantial part of their IT costs, while developers will earn more. The only market players to lose are intermediaries and agents.

So, Dear Crowdholders please visit our web-page. We will appreciate any questions, comments or general evaluation you may have regarding OpenGift.

Looking forward to your valuable input. Thanks in advance!

Signification time spent with enterprise software companies

The concept is very interesting but your bios on the website are a bit unprofessional which is a turn off from an investor point of view because a lot of what we invest in are the team and founders. I'd also suggest you clean up your LinkedIn profiles, example most of the founders still look like they are employed at their last jobs or they don't even have OpenGift on their LinkedIn. That's usually a red flag for most people evaluating ICOs.

The three options I mentioned a second ago are Implementation, Education, and Extension. You use the product, teach about the product, or make the product better in some way. If your question is: How do I sell my implementation, education or extension services? Well, that’s a much larger question. For that, you want to ask for help (i.e. pay someone to show you).

Well the concept is good and its an opportunity for developers to jump in and cash out their existing code which is lying on svn and git though being open source its always good to get something in return. Though at current stage people will not join much as on git but eventually it will grow.

You say "OpenGift platform is the first step to creating an ecosystem, where sponsors and investors could get a clear picture of a project’s progress, problems it aspires to solve, interconnection with other projects and its importance for the ecosystem." How does this differ from a platform like, say, kickstarter or indiegogo, which already have wide acceptance and use?

Biggest issue I can put my finger on at the moment is the assumption that several enterprises need the same specific software. Even with commercial software each enterprise has a dedicated team where they tailor it to the needs of the enterprise and the legislation requirements. The legislations also change all the time, so there is a constant need for personalized adjustments for each client. Which, you can imagine, will be very hard to do economically open source. The general use open source software doesn't need personalization, so ways to profit there could be limited too. So you we can safely assume that for the most enterprises there will be only one client ordering changes to pre-existing open source code. So you will be more like Behance for coders, where GitHub reigns supreme. The donation buttons work just fine if you need something done. Another easily resolved issue is scratching the "lets make a new coin that offers no function at all" idea. It just forces a "sponsor" to change their crypto into a new, obscure coin it and the coder to change it back again into something useful. While providing profit for users with 10k or more OSS who act as exchangers, which is pretty middlemanish to me. Not to mention you don't really need censorship resistant records of legal transactions between two willing participants, who are both through KYC. So your goal would be better and cheaper served by an ordinary web server.

Not really about the functionality (which looks good to me) but your intro video I would change the voice actor. Although clear enough and understandable, I found it tiring to listen to. Something upbeat would add to the occasion. You have a great concept, I would use an enthusiastic voice over to convey this, the current one is a bit monotone
