I’m sorry, I can not write on French
I think, but not sure, the most of the people want to be certified. And the certification is the MAIN GOAL. Why? Because it is the main way to get money. Why? Because there are not a significant economy using G1.
If people can get G1 just offering services o products (not just second hand products) the certification would not be as important as nowadays, where Swiss people are very worried about lose their certification (what, in any case, are not very useful for them).
I can understand certifications can be interesting for people who IS OFFERING NOTHING to the community. But, are these people interesting for us???
So, if Swiss people want to get money, what about offering services? For example, offering rooms or apartments to hire. Or French or German translation or teaching services. For example, on https://girala.net/fr you can have:
So, how is possible there are not Swiss services there? What about people around the World want to travel to Switzerland? What are you offering?
People talk about certifications, but France has around 4000 members and Spain only around 200, but I think France is not offering as services as Spain at girala.net Even if France offer twice, it has 20x members than Spain!!! For me, this is shocking!!
And it’s shocking to realize there are lots of unused G1 on French wallets and when a Spanish crowdfunding is published on this forum just 1 o 2 people donate! 1 or 2! Just because French people look at foreign countries like something not concerning to them…
For me it’s a pity to think that France is not an example, but a failed model that we, Catalan, Spanish, American people should avoid… I sincerely didn’t think this just a year before, when I know about G1.
Obviously there are a lot of brave people, helpful people who have helped in the first steps the Catalan/Spanish community. And a crew of computer guys working a LOT.
Here in Catalonia I try to spread the word that the most important think is get companies and people offering services and products. Just current shops and professionals. If we have a healthy map of services, people remain because G1 will be useful. That’s why girala.net is See the statistics:
Last, another important point, for me, to help, or damage, the companies or professionals, what should be the value of the G1: ¿Qué valor tiene el G1? ¿Qué valor debe tener?
