Do you think Dom Hoffmann should sell V2 if someone offers him money? If V2 is out for at the most 2 or 3 years

What do you guys think if someone offers money to Dom Hoffmann for v2, do you think he should accept or not. I know it’s not our choice, it’s Dom’s, he chooses if he wants to sell v2, but i wanna hear from the community since v2 isn’t out yet.


#2

NOOOO. This is his project and he should make it. He has really good ideas and I like him and trust him somehow for this project.
I don’t want V2 to be ruined.


#3

no WAY. we all saw what happened tothe original vine when it was sold. yikes. its his own project, why give it away?


#4

Uh no. Maybe if he made like millions off it maybe, but no. :joy:


#5

NO NO NO NO, please don’t it will happen the same with vine tho, and btw he is working very hard for v2 I don’t think “sell” is an option


#6

Honestly I don’t think he should sell it either.


#7

This is his idea and his project. He’s been doing his best for all of us and he deserves all the recognition from it.


#8

While the money was probably very nice, I think Dom regretted selling Vine to Twitter, which is why he’s creating a new, similar service.


#9

Just a reminder, I don’t mean if he should sell it right now I mean when it’s out.


#10

No v2 is his child and I’m sure all of us love dom for bringing vine back with v2 so he shouldn’t sell it.


#11

No please!


#12

If they offered him money at the beginning? No chance he will, it’s so young and is yet to be developed to it’s full, I believe @dom has a vision or at least ideas about what he wants from a social media platform and other platforms don’t do it, he’s a smart guy he might sell it if he loses passion or he believes there’s nothing else he can do with it but I don’t believe he will sell it unless it is dying and someone offers him a good amount, I believe he’s really involved with this personally and he truly cares for this app and wants it to succeed and change social media as we know it


#13

I don’t mean as soon as it releases, I mean if it’s been out for at least two years then someone offers him money. Just a reminder.


#14

Great reply BTW


#15

@dom
Don’t sell it.
“v3” is not an option.


#16

No that is exactly what happened last time and I think it was his biggest regret so he won’t do it again.


#17

Agreed, took the words right out of my mouth


#18

two years later… v28


#19

Snapchat refused to sell themselves to Facebook and I am glad it did. I do not think Dom should sell it

I actually LOVE Snapchat. So sad other apps are copying them :tired_face:
