Introducing whatisbitusd.com
« on: October 16, 2014, 05:19:05 AM »

http://whatisbitusd.com

I thought a site like this was necessary. If you want to quickly explain to someone what BitUSD is, send them here.

It's not 100% done yet, but your input is still very much appreciated. :)

BitUSD is Bitcoin with the stability of real USD
does rather assume that the USD will remain stable, which given the state of economy and stockmarket atm might be a gamble.

Perhaps better then to hedge that risk with a statement more like
"BitUSD is one step beyond Bitcoin, and pegged to the value of real USD"


Also, why highlight ye olde centralised OS and not also Linux! Ironic?

very cool!  +5%. Great symbols, transparent concept - one just wants to stay and click though that site!

A few thoughts:

1 - at "Private" section - would it be better to use some picture less resemblant to a "mafia crook"?

2 - the section "Interest" could alternatively be named "Profitable" (just in order to keep all titles as descriptive adjectives)?

3 - in both sections "Secure" and "Decentralised" are focused on protection from government. I would leave the government reference just to one of them... And, as bitUSD is designed for mainstream, is it worth to also emphasise protection against hacking?

4 - another possible section: "Instant"/"Fast"/"Immediate"?

5 - at some point perhaps, hopefully an additional section could be added: "Legal"/"Legitimate" ;)

Excellent work, very clean. Conveys all the necessary info succinctly.

This should be posted on r/Bitcoin and we should upvote the hell out of it.

Edit: I might suggest downsizing or screening back the icons (lighter grey?) - they seem a bit distracting.

The background really throws me off. Make it more Bitshares themed and professional. Everyone else is great.
