  Listing Fee

Our listing fee is either 0.25% of the pre-farm, or 8 hours of block rewards paid in the native currency, whichever is larger. There are several reasons for this nominal fee.

  1. We can’t list every fork of the Chia source code, so we need a first-pass filter where the developers/founders of the projects are ACTUALLY engaged and responsive.
  2. A listing fee creates strong alignment between xchforks! and the projects we work with. We’re incentivized to help our partner projects succeed and we are all encouraged to stay engaged and help wherever we can.
  3. Most projects come to us with a currency that doesn’t have a measurable FMV (fair market value). When a project pays a listing fee, it gives their currency real value as they’re paying for a real service.
  4. DEPTH VS. BREADTH. We’ve decided to go deep rather than broad with our approach. Each project listing requires an immense amount of idiosyncratic work such as exchange interfaces, full nodes with RPC calls, Chia Fork Farmers interfaces, Twitter interfaces, Github release update interfaces, etc. We can’t do this work for every fork (1,600 forks and counting) so we’d rather give our users a more deep experience, versus just listing every random fork we can find. If there’s a fork we don’t have that has a substantial community and FMV, we’d be open to considering it for listing outside our standard process.
  5. When founders/ developers don’t have a pre-farm, the listing fee gives their community an opportunity to come together to accomplish a goal for the first time as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). When founders push back on the listing fee, it’s typically a sign there’s a weak community behind the project.
  6. We’re long-term holders of every coin, have not sold a single coin, and don’t intend to for the foreseeable future. You can easily track this in the block explorer.

This site is built and maintained by a passionate community member who’s not getting paid to do this work. If we get the resources and staff to broaden the scope of our site, we’ll gladly reconsider our listing approach.

  Case Studies

  Melati

After Melati listed on xchforks.com, they saw an immediate boost of more than 40% in netspace on listing day. We sent a significant amount of web traffic directly to their github repository where users presumably installed their software and pointed their farm to the Melati blockchain, strengthening both their network security and their currency adoption.

  BTCgreen

Soon after launching mainnet, BTCgreen saw a 146% explosion in netspace on listing day.

  Shamrock

Shamrock saw a boost of more than 36% in netspace on listing day.

  Cannabis

After the Cannabis listing, they saw a boost of more than 30% in netspace on listing day.

  CryptoDoge

After the CryptoDoge listing, their project page received 3,000 views, 500 clicks through to their github repo, and a boost of 80 PiB, or 30% in netspace during the proceeding week.

  Note

If your project uses blatant, gratuitous vulgar language, we will NOT be listing your project.
We know our community looks to us for farming opportunities and we take that responsibility seriously. Directing significant farming capability to projects created as jokes or for other provocative reasons would be a misstep in our responsibility to our community.
We respect the hard-working developers who are committed to the success of their projects and we will not promote jokes that take away from more serious approaches to improving the ecosystem as a whole.
