The Janus project team has been dropping hints and updates in their Slack channel, as well as announced some significant changes for the Janus project, which are going to be implemented.
Here's a summary, to Janus holders but also to those who still hold back from investing in Janus.
Burn Janus, Burn!
On April 13, Bjorn writes:
We will reduce total Janus in existence to 25,201,489 JNS.
5 Million of that will be kept on the main Janus account (they receive none of the dividends, therefore do not detract).
2.5 million for our team's holdings, 2.5 million for community efforts/bounties in the future and the like, 2 million will go to the final JanusXT holder when he/she comes to us.
This leaves 16,201,489 in circulation, assuming none of the JanusXT holders leave the project.

July 3rd is the end date of the 2nd distribution, plus the last chance to support the Janus team directly. Remember that any buy from the team is an investment in the team's work, which aims to make your investment worth.
After July 3rd the market will be fighting each other for tokens.
We decided this is best to carry all who are in since December until this July with us. Then after latecomers will have to pay more premium. By premium I mean they gonna be buying it from you all.
However sells could get ever scarce as the passive income becomes the level we want, and I plan to add Janus as a payment option to 2 sites for a continuous buy up driver. The key is making a discount enough to take the time to buy and use it as payment. If a service on social trading site is 400 USD for example a 25% discount paid via Janus tokens should motivate. This then feeds us tokens, causes market push, and should in theory drive volume.
New sites, better Dividends
- A new game will be added to BetterBets.io this month.
Janus holders can expect an addition to the monthly NXT profit share from the BetterBets.io Casino, “people who aren’t a fan of dice may really like this one,” bjorn_bb writes.
Janus holders will get 90% of the NXT profit.
- A new blockchain based business site will launch soon after;
This is an unexpected evolvement, and the new site's going to add an extra revenue stream to Janus and JanusXT holders. 10% to Janus holders, 10% to JanusXT holders, 10% to the "outside developers" for helping push the site + also helping Janus, and 70% to the Janus Team.
- In May, a new site will be added to the JanusXT holders' portfolio of income sources
This site will easily be replicated to many areas of pop culture. And yup, it's just one of the advantages of being an XT holder.

Want to get JanusXT?
New team member
A new and influential member has joined the Janus team. Who this person is, will be announced soon. His work will begin with the launch of the social trading site.
His job won't be like ours, he may work 20 hours a month but what he can provide is priceless. I am proud of what I can do, but he can open doors that are impossible for even top marketers. It's hard for a new guy to come into a team working together for so long, but he's everything I realized when we met last summer. I just didn't think he would be interested in joining until January. 30+ years of experience in numerous fields and industry very few have direct access to.
We are coordinating with the Nxt Foundation to get his identity verified for you (I assume you all trust their word by now). Once that's done we can roll out the QA with him on a yet to be determined medium, end of the month.
His passport has been sent to the Nxt Foundation who will talk with him and confirm his identity. When the QA comes there will be no doubts about his authenticity and we will see why this verification process was important. "So that we aren't making some crazy claims", writes Bjorn.
The social trading site
Bjorn has revealed the name of the future site: www.trademimic.com
Janus' aims to hit the mainstream with this site, which will soon be beta-released and tested inside the community, then soft-launched in July.
Trademimic.com is focused on Forex, but as we said in December, it will have altcoin options and Bitcoin. Subscription based. And there will be tiered packages. More options higher price.
We'll finish up with the social trading fintech site by July. Then market like mad. Our new team member's first major assignment will be that site.
Managed the development and implementation of Nxt's visual brand in 2014, with web design bureau Ideenfrische.
Issued the NXTP asset in 2014, a profit sharing asset given to early contributors to Nxter.org that helped turn the site into a magazine, publishing news and articles in several languages, and running faucets, contests and social media campaigns for Nxt. ESMA based a report on Nxter.org's coverage of the Nxt AE in 2015.
Arthur is still one of the driving forces behind Nxter.org. He compiled the acclaimed book about Nxt 'SNAPSHOT', which got published in early 2017.
