Bitshares Europe - what can we do?
« on: April 09, 2015, 02:03:29 PM »

Me and a few friends of mine in Holland/Europe are very interested in the concept of Bitshares.
What can we do here in Europe to get Bitshares succesfull? We have a lot of contacts, also in the financial world; university etc

Hey ronald. Glad you want to help the project! Reaching out to the circles you've mentioned to give presentations about bitshares concepts and innovations, educate businesses about the utility of bitshares adoption, entrepreneurs about the opportunity of leveraging the assets on the platform, and/or talk to people about the investment opportunity that bitshares represents.

Have you given any thought to creating a BitShares meetup on meetup.com? We are slowly growing our mindshare but representation in Europe is needed.

You shouldnt have to do anything. BitShares is supposed to be a great product that offers a service that people actually want. Once people can trade from the web-based wallet and easily deposit their BTC into it, awareness of this product will spread as easily as sharing a url to wallet.bitshares.org. It shouldnt require people evangelizing on campuses.

Right???

Edit: Helping & spreading word is great, my point was just that products should be good enough to sell themselves.

Hi Ronald welcome on board!

We had a talk about BitShares last month in Amsterdam on Bitcoin Meetup

http://bitcoinmeetup.nl/2015/03-17.html

Guess we will organize more in near future! Where you're located !?
I'll create a seperate Amsterdam BitShares Meetup.com page soon.

Selling sells.  Products do not sell, unfortunately.

What is the reason again, why wallet.bitshares.org is not showing correctly on smartphones?

Is that a technical problem, that the web-wallet cannot be pinched smaller and bigger. This is very important, cause I could make several new users a day otherwise (i guess)
