What hardware should I use?
I would rent a server from http://ouvaton.org a French coop providing internet dedicated servers.
How much time should I dedicate to technical maintenance?
Implementing updates on the server request about 2 hours every 15 days.
How much time should I dedicate to maintaining normal relationships with other Bps?
Coordinating efforts with other Bps is a crucial point, so a 1h weekly online meeting is requested.
Each BPs also have to spend some times on the Discord server.
How much time should I dedicate to campaigning for getting votes from regular users?
At the beginning of the endeavor, collecting votes from new users request a lot of times, because It need to explain what is SNAX, how it works and so on…then a bi-monthly newsletter on Steem about block production and new dApps should be enough.
how much from my stake should be dedicated to promotion?
With 2 million SNAX staked, it is worth to spend 10 % of my SNAX in promotion. Competition for new tokens is rude and marketing campaigns are not free.
Having creative ideas is one point but it is also important to develop a team of dedicated marketers that can post about SNAX, promote the ecosystem and beta test new dApps.
How long should I wait before getting some profits ?
I will follow 3 Indicators: number of users, number of transactions and capital exchange.
I also should maintain incomes from other jobs to be able to pay the bills in Euro for the next 3 years.
