I'd love to hear from founder James

I am the “맵근본이네” of the Korean community.

STEP 1 Please read the text below

  1. Do you admit that technology is important, but marketing is also important?
  2. Want to increase your trading volume?
  3. Do you want more new inflows?
  4. Do you want to raise the price of MAPO more than it is now?

STEP2 Then read the text below

The current status of the current map protocol is as follows.

  1. Most of the trading volume occurs on the Korea Exchange.
  2. Too few listed exchanges.
  3. The daily trading volume is too small.
  4. The mainnet has been released, but there is no place supported by the exchange.
  5. You seem to do a lot of partnerships, but there are no visible results.
  6. The price has dropped too much. That’s why so many investors are losing money.
  7. You seem to be doing something, but the finish is not neat.
    1. Hive Swap: Only swap function is provided, info is not provided, and farms are useless.
    2. Bridge: It is only maintained as it was a year ago, and it seems that it will disappear when the
      butter swap comes out in the future.
    3. idavoll DAO: It is made for the function of DAO, but it is not necessary because the STAKING site
      has governance.
    4. idavoll DAO: I thought I could do something with gxMAP, yxMAP, xMAP, but I didn’t need it
      because of #3 above.
    5. befi: really important staking does not work in befi (called being improved)


  1. There are few exchanges listed, low trading volume, and low awareness, so there is little new inflow.
  2. It seems grandiose, but there are no results, and existing investors are also anxious, so I can’t recommend it to others.
    (Rather, it is recommended, but it is being criticized)

It would be great if additional exchanges were listed. But if that’s difficult, stick to the basics.

  1. All large and small partnerships, please register on ‘xangle.io’. The Korea Exchange notifies the disclosure information posted on Xangle to the exchange.
    So you are immediately exposed to investors using the exchange. (Effect of new inflow, improved reliability of the project)

  2. Please update to enable staking on befi. Then you can participate in staking more easily.

  3. Please disclose the detailed roadmap of Butter Swap.

    1. Scheduled opening date of Butter Swap Bridge
    2. Scheduled opening date for cross-chain swap of Butter Swap
    3. Scheduled opening date for volts function in Butter Swap
  4. Add a map mainnet network to an already listed exchange. At least KuCoin is a multi-network exchange.
    Please add a map mainnet network even if it is Kucoin. That way, more people can participate in transactions through the map mainnet.

Pi Network has a huge community around the world.
Network marketing played a big role in a huge community where members attract members.
In other words, 100 people become 200 people and 200 people become 400 people. Trust is important for that.

The community of map protocol is too weak.
The reason is that they are losing confidence in the viability of the Map Protocol.
Community communication is of the utmost importance.
Gaining the trust of the community encourages existing investors to spread the word around and invest.
Right now, I am afraid to recommend it to people around me.

Since the cryptocurrency market is on a cooldown, it is just an excuse that not all coins are doing well with falling prices.
Now, the community of MAP Protocol is a group of people who have endured great losses for a long time.
Give these people your trust.
That’s the basic and most important marketing.

Opinion on listing)
It is great to be listed on major exchanges such as Binance and Coinbase.
However, please focus on listing on small and medium-sized exchanges as well.
Please make an effort to be listed on exchanges such as okx, lbank, gate.io, and mexc.
For newly listed places, be sure to try listing on the map mainnet network!

I would like to hear the detailed opinion of James, the founder of Map Protocol, on the above article.


저는 한국커뮤니티의 "맵근본이네"입니다.

STEP1 아래 글을 읽어주세요

  1. 기술도 중요하지만 마케팅 또한 중요하다는 사실을 인정하시나요?
  2. 거래량을 늘리고 싶으세요?
  3. 신규유입을 더 많이 시키고 싶으세요?
  4. MAPO의 가격을 지금보다 더 많이 올리고 싶으세요?

STEP2 그럼 아래 글을 읽어주세요

현재 맵프로토콜의 현 주소는 아래와 같습니다.

  1. 거래량의 대부분이 한국거래소에서 발생한다.
  2. 상장된 거래소가 너무 적다.
  3. 하루 거래량이 너무 적다.
  4. 메인넷이 출시하였으나, 거래소에서 지원하는 곳이 없다.
  5. 파트너십은 많이 하는 것 같은데 눈에 보이는 결과가 없다.
  6. 가격이 너무 많이 떨어졌다. 그래서 손실을 보고 있는 투자자들이 너무 많다.
  7. 뭔가 하는 것 같은데 마무리가 깔끔하지 않다.
  8. 하이브스왑 : 단지 스왑기능만 제공, info 가 제공되지 않고, farms 도 쓸모 없는 상태.
  9. 브릿지 : 1년전 상태 그대로 유지만 되고 있으며, 앞으로 버터스왑이 나오면 없어질 것 같음.
  10. idavoll DAO : DAO의 기능을 위해 만들어져있지만, STAKING사이트에 governance가 있으므로, 필요없음.
  11. idavoll DAO : gxMAP, yxMAP , xMAP으로 뭔가 할 줄 알았지만 위 3번으로 인해 필요없어졌음.
  12. befi : 정작 중요한 staking 이 befi 에서 작동하지 않음(개선중이라고 함)


  1. 상장된 거래소가 몇개 없고, 거래량도 적고, 인지도도 낮아 신규유입이 거의 없다.
  2. 뭔가 거창한 듯 하지만 결과물이 없고 기존투자자들도 불안해 하기 때문에, 주위에 추천할 수 없다.
    (오히려 추천했다가 욕먹고 있는 상황)


거래소가 추가 상장되면 너무 좋습니다. 그러나 그게 어렵다면 기본에 충실해주세요.

  1. 크고작은 모든 파트너십은 쟁글(xangle.io)에 등록해주세요. 한국거래소는 쟁글에 올라온 공시정보를 거래소에 공지합니다.
    그래서 거래소를 이용하는 투자자에게 즉시 노출됩니다. (신규유입 효과, 프로젝트에 대한 신뢰도 향상)

  2. befi에서 스테이킹이 가능하도록 업데이트 해주세요. 그럼 좀 더 쉽게 스테이킹에 참여할 수 있습니다.

  3. 버터스왑의 상세 로드맵을 공개해주세요.

  4. 버터스왑의 브릿지 오픈예정일

  5. 버터스왑의 크로스체인 스왑 오픈예정일

  6. 버터스왑의 볼트기능 오픈예정일

  7. 이미 상장된 거래소에 맵메인넷 네트워크를 추가해주세요. 최소한 쿠코인은 멀티 네트워크를 지원하는 거래소입니다.
    쿠코인이라도 맵메인넷 네트워크를 추가해주세요. 그래야 더 많은 사람들이 맵메인넷으로 거래를 참여할 수 있습니다.

파이네트워크는 전세계에 엄청난 커뮤니티를 형성하고 있습니다.
거대한 커뮤니티는 회원이 회원을 끌어오는 네트워크 마케팅이 큰 역할을 하였습니다.
즉 100명이 200명되고 200명이 400명 됩니다. 그럴려면 신뢰가 중요합니다.

맵프로토콜의 커뮤니티는 너무 약합니다.
그 이유는 맵프로토콜의 성공가능성에 대한 신뢰가 많이 떨어져 있기 때문입니다.
커뮤니티의 소통은 무엇보다 중요합니다.
커뮤니티의 신뢰를 얻으면 기존 투자자가 주위에 소문을 내게 되어있고 투자를 권유하게 되어있습니다.
지금은 주위사람에게 권하기가 두려운 상황입니다.

암호화폐 시장이 쿨다운 중이기 때문에 모든 코인이 가격하락으로 좋지 않다는 것은 핑계일 뿐입니다.
지금 맵프로토콜의 커뮤니티는 오랜시간동안 큰 손해를 감수하고 함께 견뎌온 사람들입니다.
이 사람들에게 신뢰를 주세요.
그것이 기본이자 제일 중요한 마케팅입니다.

상장관련 의견)
바이낸스, 코인베이스 같은 메이져 거래소에 상장이 되면 너무 좋습니다.
하지만 중소형 거래소 상장에도 집중해주세요
okx, lbank, gate.io, mexc 와 같은 거래소에 상장을 위한 노력을 해주세요
신규로 상장하는 곳은 반드시 맵메인넷네트워크로 상장을 시도해주세요!

위 글에 대한 맵프로토콜의 설립자인 제임스의 자세한 의견을 듣고 싶습니다.

Hi 맵근본이네, thank you for raising your suggestions and concerns. We greatly value your input to the community. We 100% agree with you that community is the cornerstone of a project. And for a project to succeed, community and marketing are as important as its technology foundation. In 2023, we will engage and communicate with the community more actively by organizing a series of AMAs and offline meetups, which we believe will lay a solid foundation for maintaining and expanding the MAPO community. Below are the responses to your concerns:

  1. We always value the use of Xangle; however, due to Korean regulation policies and changes of rules on Xangle, there are less content types available for us to post (as attached in the picture); and even if we have posted content on Xangle, Exchanges will not update it to users. But still, we will continue to leverage Xangle to gain more exposure on the Korean market.

  1. BeFi Wallet is currently working with validators and the tech experts have confirmed that integration will be done ASAP which is expected to deliver within a month.
  2. According to the latest updates, Butter Bridge has been online, and Swap functionality should be available within this month. More detailed updates will be announced later. For the latest update, please keep an eye on Butter Bridge official website: https://www.butternetwork.io/
  3. As for Exchanges to support MAPO Mainnet, we have contacted and been closely working with all listing exchanges since November 2022. Up till now, all required documents have been submitted to the exchanges, and they all agreed to support MAPO Mainnet. Now they are monitoring the stability of MAPO Mainnet, and they will officially support MAPO Mainnet in the near future.
  4. Getting listed on other exchanges is also one of the many things we have been planning, as it will diversify ways for users to trade and store MAPO tokens. We have been and we are preparing for listing on other large and medium sized exchanges.

Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming community events and continuing to work together to build a bright future for MAPO as well as a secure omnichian future!
