BitShares: The World's First Real Decentralized Crypto Currency Exchange

Switch that to

BitShares:The World's First Blockchain Currency Exchange



For some reason, people like and react well to the word "blockchain."  They don't react as well to "crypto currency" and "decentralized."  However, the term "blockchain" implies these things.

BitShares has a fixed fee per transaction of just $0.01 means that you can trade any amount for the same price.

This is technically not true, as it fluctuates with BTS price. As we are representing a technology that is supposed to slove price stability, I think it is not acceptable to be inaccurate about this.

I agree. And it will come back to haunt us when the market cap goes up.

I think we should drop the "real" from the headline, but other than that it looks great. If this is for the frontpage we should also mention that it functions as a decentralized bank where you can store your money and earn yield (and we really gotta get an estimate of the yield in our marketing).

As being an exchange is a main selling point, I think we should add an entry click of "Start to Trade" or something like this which directly links to in-wallet trading instructions(produce a nice and concise one) and wallet downloading, on the homepage. Otherwise it's not natural.
Price chart and index should be highlighted too.

I think your points are weak.  You need to sell our products and services outright.

The service is distributed escrow and order matching for a fee.

The product is frictionless, stable currency with 5% incentive to hold.

Current website proposal looks just like old website.  We need to cut to the chase. Simple hooks, backed up by strong white papers.

Bytemaster -- I've been following you for over a year now.

I see that we have two simple pitches:

Our service - distributed escrow and order matching - aka distributed exchange.
Our product - frictionless, private, and stable currency with a 5% incentive to hold.


I think you are too worried about fallacies and covering every possible base when you pitch.  From now on, just pitch it simple.
If you pitch it simple and they ask how's that? we then tell them that it's all written here in this whitepaper. 
If they can read the whitepaper, they're hooked; if they can't totally comprehend the whitepaper, they default to assuming it must be true.
Either they hit the simple pitch or they hit the white-paper pitch.


Thank you for all you are doing. Looking forward to getting this marketing stuff hammered out.

I think this is true.
When i introduce BitShares to people usually they are not exactly sure what is is and it looks complicated in some respects. I think we need to keep the message simple and make the points obvious. You go to ripples website and its immediately obvious and easy to use.

When I introduce bitAssets to people, I said like, "You can invest foreign currency (USD, EUR, etc.) or gold/silver with 5% interest! No penalty, no high fee!"

For laypeople, an ability to invest any foreign currency and commodity with high interest is attracting.
