Some of us have been pushing for more internet marketing - specifically forums and Reddit.  Partially as a result of this, wiki.bitshares.org has been created and we're trying to push it to help educate about Bitshares.  We are also trying to counter future arguments that Bitshares did not publicize AGS and thus it is an unfair insider type deal.

The 2 main threads right now.

http://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/29xm2j/announcing_bitshares_wiki_to_answer_all_your/
  can use your up votes.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=678882.new#new  The effectiveness of "bumping" works a lot better if we spread it out.  Since I just recently posted this thread, perhaps wait some time before bumping it. 

The FriendsOfBitshares network salutes you.  :-*

P.S. The Wiki is still a work in progress.  It was put together by a few people working together part time.  It can not be all things for all people, but we're proud.

 +5% Cool stuff  :D

Wiki-BitShares is great.

The Why Choose BitShares as well as the 'Comparison of BitShares and Other Platforms' is really awesome.

I would maybe wait a bit and also do a separate reddit post on just that 'Why Choose BitShares' or comparison chart link.

There has been a lot of effort.  The Chinese guys are translating it now.  It isn't easy to do when we're changing the Wiki on our end.  The Chinese Bitshares community will hopefully have increased understanding of the changes that have been going on.

I suspect they'll move your post on the Bitcoin forum. It's been placed in the main Bitcoin discussion forum, when it should probably be in the alternate section.

Yes. But in the meantime it gets top of the forum visibility.

One guy complained and they yanked the thread.  I thought it actually fits better in the first.  It is related to Bitcoin ecosystem.  It is innovative.  It is not a "crypto currency" but this is 2nd attempt.

How about if the headline was "Bitshares acceping bitcoin for AGS donations"?

Personally I think it's wose PR if we try to put BitShares articles in the main Bicoin discussion thread, even though Bitshares isn't an alternative crypto-currency that's the best place to put on their forum imo. 

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=67.0

In the last week we've  had a few good threads that are platforms for BitShares education consistently staying on  the top two pages (top 100 topics) in that section, including this one,  so I think we're doing an effective job on BTT now and interest is improving, just need to keep it up.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=664146.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=678882.0

Plus a couple of other small topics started by people I don't recognise from BitShares.

Now for Reddit  :D

(I'm Fandangledgizmo on BTT & EmpireofLiberty of Reddit BTW - Only just started using Reddit, so don't know much about how it works though.) 


There has been a lot of effort.  The Chinese guys are translating it now.  It isn't easy to do when we're changing the Wiki on our end.  The Chinese Bitshares community will hopefully have increased understanding of the changes that have been going on.

Just had a chance to check out the Wiki properly really impressed! + There will be a Chinese translation, wow. So much great content there good job guys!!!

As far as angles to make Bitshares posts Bitcoin relevent I've heard 2 suggestions.

"AGS taking donations in Bitcoin" is a good approach to get posts into the Bitcoin community.

The other option for the Bitcoin post is to point out the proposal to give 15% of p2p to BTC holders.

 Any more suggestions like the 2 above would be appreciated.

I think I'll start up a post with #1 on reddit.

As far as targeting Bitcoin vs altcoin people, I find altcoin people a lot more open.  I'm not sure if they're more valued though.  It would be nice to make inroads with BTC people. They seem to have more money and resources in general.  They just need to understand the innovation.  They've accepted BTC, they need to accept the next step.  :)

Yeah I think on Reddit targeting Bitcoin people is good. I just think on the Bitcoin forum the main Bitcoin Discussion section is clearly about Bitcoin specific stuff.

If you make a post to reddit, link to it here if you can, I don't go on there a lot myself.

Maybe mention that BTSX is trading on Bter & BTC38?

Perhaps I need to resize this.  This is a screenshot of the grid originally created by Clout on the Wiki.

 +5% Awesome!

Is there a max price in XTS for a BitShares X transaction?

For me the price of the product is the thing laymen often look at first when making an initial comparison, so to say variable and then link to trying to explain burn rate...

I think it would be better to have < '*' XTS  - With Star being replaced by whatever a maximum transaction would cost, (Then the link can explain it would likely be much lower.)
