The Devs hang around the forum all the time. This is something we could really use some help figuring out how to market.
I don't think marketing this would be very hard at all. Everyone is always looking for a loan and word of mouth will help quite a bit.
The funny thing is they used a referral program back around 2012-2013 as part of marketing. Now I think they are just using word of mouth and targeted ads across the internet, as well as new stories/articles.
Also as I mentioned in the other post regulation shouldn't be a huge problem. Lending Club is slowly but surely taking care of regulation.
The biggest problem I see is what do we offer that is different/more appealing. We can't just mirror everything
that Lending Club does and expect to succeed. We need something that separates us from the crowd. Personally I don't think the fact that we are decentralized is going to help with that aspect very much.
