These newsletters are meant to be down and dirty summaries of what's happening in the community marketing forum Nullstreet. The formatting is ugly, the material is direct.

Delulo has been busy helping developing guides on Bitshares technology for the average joe.
"Article series: The value proposition of BitShares.
Two articles: Part I - BitShares Core Technology, Part II - BitAssets
I wrote them both for the Bitshares blog back in September, Part I is already published: http://bitshares.org/the-value-proposition-of-bitsharesx-part-i-core-technology/
The idea was to explain where the value proposition of BitShares lies as simple as possible but without loosing too much precision. Actually I was tired of explaining it over and over again to people so I always sent them these articles which contain all my good arguments why BitShares has value. [I might have to update Part I with paid delegates]
I also have written Part II back then but didn't publish it because the market mechanics for BitAssets kept changing. Now I rewrote the "how BitAssets work" Part over the weekend.
I would like your feedback on it. I won't rewrite the whole thing
But if you see mistakes or if you think something is missing then let's add it. Then we can put it on the blog or push it to whatever channel you can come up with. So here it is: "https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=11915.0Reddit Push with BitUSD
"I want to set up a reddit "blitz" this Thursday in the following subreddits:
We will set up an AMA style faucet similar to this. Our "pitch" will be something like: "It's official: bitUSD and bitGOLD work: come get 1 bitUSD or bitGOLD and see for yourself that stable p2p money is a reality."http://www.reddit.com/r/BitcoinMarkets/comments/2ftfti/bitshares_x_ama_trade_btc_derivatives_on_the/
The date might be pushed to next Monday, we will keep everyone up to date. Thanks to everyone that's been working with MeTHoDx to make it happen.Marketing Delegates
