100 % I agree with every point you make. It is absolutely urgent to move quickly, Ethereum buzz is all over the place .
I know Brian is working in a much need it marketing campaign right now and this is great, but I think there are so many things that can be done right away, especially that now there are enough money to do it. For starter, I think there should be someone working full time on the http://invictus.io/
site. It looks great and gives you a global idea but for someone new coming to the site, if he wants to know more about Bitshare X, Bitshare or Keyhotee there is not much to go, there is nothing there that helps you to go deeper e.g. all the information that is here : http://invictus-innovations.com/links/
should appear on the new website. There need to be examples, graphics, video , wiki (there is nothing on the wiki now), whitepapers, blog, twitter, facebook etc. To me this should be the number 1 priority.
A full time employee would have a lot a information that could work with right now, no need to understand everything right away , that person should work with the community. I'm sure everybody is willing to help, those things you can't do it with bounties. Time is of essence.
I think website, marketing, and great initiatives, like fuznuts proposes here, should move us in the right direction.
By the way, this is not criticism, this is intended to be constructive. I know bytemaster and the team are working as hard and fast as they could, but still they are humans (not sure about bytemaster tough
) but they can't do everything. 3I should start using the Ags funds to hire people and I'm not talking only about programmers.
