The purposeful destruction of all that is good in the world brought me here.
should be in the great quotes thread
Anyways in terms of marketing? There were many touch points especially because I'm a pretty slow mover.. (don't they say it takes seven touches before a sale?)
-Probably reading Bytemaster's blog posts and watching his videos had the most impact on me (I'm a voluntaryist so his blog was extremely refreshing) This video was one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mwmlJICyRA
(Any mention of Ron Paul is a bonus.. and Austrian economics too... so this appealed to me and will appeal to many in the liberty movement. I do think the blogs might be seen as a bit radical for the average person though)
-I watched the webinar last year, but the biggest hangup for me was that all the shares were distributed and I felt like I missed out.
-Max Wright's Bitshares.tv (funny I remember Max Wright's Success Council videos from a liberty forum a while back)
-Stan's blog about the history of Bitshares & reading bitsharestalk.org The activity & level of quality of this community is very good compared to other alt coins based on my experience.
The main feature I was attracted to was bitGold & bitUSD. I think removing volatility is a huge innovation and doing so without counterparty risk. A lot of the solutions in the alt-coin and crypto scene used IOUs or a custodian, but the way bitShares is structured and the collateralization is huge. The comparison table Bytemaster shows about different types of dollars and how they compare with each other was also useful.
Anyways that's all I remember at the moment...
