Re: Apps and Marketing.


I don't think a percentage cut will convince people to jump on a different
platform. Definitely not on one which still has to prove itself.

At the end 100% of nothing is still nothing.

Do you think 30% is not fair based on the services provided? How much do
you think would be a fair cut?

Best, chr
