So, they're interested in listing us. According to Gregory:
"Fundamentally, there seems to be a good fit between Wirex and Steem, so, we are definitely keen to explore the opportunities for cooperation."
I'm gonna keep in touch with him, and do as much as I possibly can. If anyone feels like they can contribute in any way to this, please let me know. Let's try to get as much visibility as possible!
@ned should really be doing this.

Partnership Enquiry Inbox x Christopher Graney-Ward <firstname.lastname@example.org> Fri, Jan 18, 2:59 AM (1 day ago) to email@example.com Hi, I’m a stakeholder and dapp developer in the steem blockchain, many of our users have been discussing ways to get our coin listed on crypto debit card services. In case you haven’t heard of steem before, we’re one of the oldest dPos cryptos in existence, just coming up to our third birthday. Our blockchain was based on the hugely successful graphene blockchain used by bitshares, after we further popularised it, Dan Larimer went on to use it on EOS. Steem is different to any other cryptocurrency because we have a community built directly into our blockchain, which can be used to run all kinds of dapps from video streaming, sound sharing, blogging, private and public messaging. It is important to remember that we are not a promise, or hype, we have a fully functional blockchain that does everything seamlessly. We’ve been silently growing in the background for years. We have sustained a highly active userbase for the last 2.5 years, checking <a href=”https://blocktivity.info/”>Blocktivity</a> shows that we’re the 4th most used blockchain by transactions per second, making it roughly 30% more popular than Bitcoin and 100% more popular than Ethereum by that measure. This is largely due to our scalability, free transactions, and 3 second transaction times. In terms of dApps, we are widely recognised as one of the most successful platforms: https://www.stateofthedapps.com/rankings https://www.dapp.com/ranking Stateofthedapps is the 2rd result when you search google for “dapp”. Steem takes 9 spaces in the top 20 ranked dapps according to this site. There are over half a million accounts which have been used at least once, and roughly 50,000 active accounts despite the bear market and very little in the way of hype such as that which tron and bitcoin cash have received. https://steemitimages.com/640x0/https://arcange.eu/steem-images/2019-01-16-Accounts-EN.png (Accounts) https://steemitimages.com/640x0/https://arcange.eu/steem-images/2019-01-16-Actives30-EN.png (Actives) In addition to everything I’ve shared here, Steemit Inc have just recently released <a href=”https://steemit.com/hivemind/@steemitblog/hivemind-is-live”>hivemind</a> which combines traditional databases with blockchain to allow for far smaller and cheaper nodes, allowing the whole system to be more decentralised. Next in the pipeline is Smart Media Tokens, which will allow our dApps to have their own tokens which each have their own economies, kind of like an ERC20 token to Ethereum. Incorporating steem into wirex will be a stress free procedure as well, we have multiple APIs in various programming languages (however, mostly JS and python). We also have a large and dedicated development community who are rewarded financially by stakeholders for contributing. Myself and tens of thousands of other users will embrace with open arms, any fiat to steem channels available to us. Personally, I have used wirex to buy hundreds of dollars of crypto, most of which was converted straight to steem. Thank you for reading, I hope to hear from you soon! Georgy Sokolov <firstname.lastname@example.org> Fri, Jan 18, 5:02 PM (19 hours ago) to me Hi Christopher, Thank you for reaching out and for the detailed introduction. Fundamentally, there seems to be a good fit between Wirex and Steem, so, we are definitely keen to explore the opportunities for cooperation. To get the conversation going, would you be able to answer the questions in our brief enquiry form? Let me know when done, and let's schedule a call to talk through this next week.

Christopher Graney-Ward <email@example.com> 12:11 PM (47 minutes ago) to Georgy Hi Georgy, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I've filled out the form however have had to leave incorrect details in the business type/date of incorporation since I am an individual. If this is a problem, please let me know as it isn't too expensive to register a company here. In terms of the business that started steem, they don't do much in the way of marketing and visibility and are instead focused on development, meaning a lot of the onboarding and PR (such as getting listed on dapp tracking services) has been done by the initiative of individual community members and groups alike. I am GMT+0 (London time) so our timezones aren't too dissimilar. What times and days are you available to talk? Regards, Chris
