What to Focus on?
« on: January 07, 2014, 10:38:58 PM »

Hi guys and gals,
Please answer this poll to help the new CMO (hopefully myself) understand where the community wants the most focus in the next few days.

Thanks

I guess the ultimate goal is to get the coin to be used, through a retailer or charity site.  But to get there the coin needs exposure.  So I voted for the exchange because it seems if it gets on the exchange, people will notice it more, miners will mine it more and then you can use blogs and social media to reinforce that exposure and get the word out what's unique about this coin.

Graphics are already very good, we need to get onto the exchanges and then get bloggers in on it. That will create the interest needed.

Adding MMC2 to other exchanges is beyond our control. Besides, it is not rational at this stage. If you check bter volume daily and compare this data with daily minted coins, you'll understand what I mean. In a market with low circulation, it is hard to name a price. According to my valuation, MMC is now worth 0,85 usd. Well, you may call me a dreamer but this is how trade works in real world. My valuation is inversely proportional to the general market price now and will always be until I see a significant circulation. This would take a day, a month or a year. I'll still be working for this community at that time.

In conclusion, adding value for MMC is the officers' duty, not the markets, especially with no fiat options.

Yes, while I think many shareholders would like to see MMC listed on more exchanges, I don't think a direct approach works. They respond to demand from their customers. Thus you need to focus on creating demand for investment (so users want to buy the coin), create supply from a wide range of sellers (so users want to sell the coin).

I think that's best done by clearly explaining what makes our coin a unique and compelling proposition for investors, and a profitable proposition for miners.

#1: Encourage Miners to Adopt the coin (Mine and HOLD)
#2: Promote Demand (stimulate buying and possibility of profit by presenting calculations)
#3: Create an Application that can be utilized by the economically marginalized. (Present the normal individual with reasons why to mine MMC with a less-than-three minute video) [Possibly multiple jobs on fiverr?]
#4: Promote the exchange of services and goods by transfer of Memorycoin.
#5: Create a marketplace to sell MMC for other things rather than Bitcoins.
#6 Create an EASY tutorial with big and colorful letters and little steps. Make it easier to mine than bitcoins.

MAKE THE WEBSITE AND APPLICATION APPEALING TO THE GENERAL PC USER SO THEY WILL ADOPT.

Any individual who runs for CMO and makes these ideas happen will get my vote.

Started a giveaway thread on BitCoinTalk:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=404762.0

For new users only, to try and get more people downloading our client.
I believe the easy mining option there will do a great job in getting people to start mining it and slowly get them to be involved with the coin.

Generally I'm not in favour of giveaways/faucets because I think it sends the wrong message about the coin and doesn't require much participation (users can just grab an address from their exchange) so I haven't been funding this.

However if we could kickstart people's mining by matching with a small amount - that would reward participation and help to encourage people to get started - we've got a lot of funds in the defunct MCF that I need to distribute.

The idea was to get people to download the wallet and hopefully the easy mining option will increase chances they will start mining and get involved.
How do you suggest we "kickstart people's mining by mathing with small amount"?. Open to any idea.

Not sure, just thinking out loud too.

The objective is to increase demand.

Offer a Lottery for all MMC users.

105% of the coins are paid out.

Make the payout split between 3 contestants from 65%, 25%, 10%

This should offer users incentive to start mining MMC.

I may work on this little idea :)
