Distribution means how you get users to find out about your project. Even Satoshi Nakamoto was part of a Cryptography Mailing List to share bitcoin with.
Having a startup without distribution is like a smart person who doesn’t work hard.
You don’t have a startup. You aren’t smart. There is no way to prove intelligence without a hard work. There is no way to prove a startup without users.
Everything has “POTENTIAL.”
What you have is almost a nice science project. Except even science projects get feedback and people to stop by.
It is possible for a science project to be interesting enough to get handouts and become a real thing. I have had friends get funded off a tweet.
But there is usually more to those stories. Assume you are not so lucky.
