Being able to exchange BTSX at more places will get BTSX more exposure, as some people just prefer some exchanges over others or feel safer with certain exchanges, that brings more liquidity, and it spreads the risk around multiple exchanges. Getting Bitassets added to more exchanges will create more exposure (and thus demand) for Bitassets, and allow crypto currency exchanges to trade decentralized commodities (gold/oil) and FIAT... that is our selling point there. :)

The first mission of this campaign is to get added on a few more exchanges and a payment processor. I have ranked the top 11 exchanges in the last 24 hours comparing their volumes in USD and payment processors known to work with alternative crypto currencies. Any help with links, emails, new services, etc. would be nice.

Pretty much all of the campaign missions you can complete for free, please also suggest other people do the missions as well. Some exchanges allow voting for coins to get them accepted, so a community effort might could get BTSX or bitassets traded on them, and others will need to be contacted via other formats. We need you to vote, submit forms, send pre-filled tweets, and comment on their Facebook to really get their attention!

The red exchanges do not trade BTSx or bitassets.
The orange exchanges allow voting or form sumbittal for coins to be added.
The green exchanges have at least BTSX already trading but maybe not Bitassets.

Payment processors adopting Bitassets will bring them more utility and people can use them for eCommerce, increasing the likelihood someone would buy Bitassets. Having eCommerce on the block chain will increase the rate of deflation as transaction fees are destroyed, thus improving the bottom line of BitsharesX. There are several multi-coin payment processors and some have a form to submit or vote, and I will list some of the bigger multicoin payment processors here. Payment processors with an automatic coin add form or vote are listed below, for the ones that don't we will try to contact via social media or emails at a later date. These are the services known to work with alternative cryptocurrencies.

  • Coinpayments.net is the oldest multicoin payment processor, and they also have a form you can submit to get BitsharesX support. Please go submit BitsharesX and bitassets at the following link:
  • https://www.coinpayments.net/coinreq
  • Adoption by this payment processor could mean the ability to purchase items and services with BTSX and Bitassets from these businesses: https://www.coinpayments.net/store-directory

The first payment processor mission.  :D +5%

Great initiative, this should be our top priority at the moment.

For Mintpal I found the following,

Quote from: mintpal
Shortcut to Addition

A coin can be urgently reviewed for addition when the following occurs.

A review fee of 5 BTC is paid.
We do not require coins taking the urgent route, to be at least 28 days old. Coins scheduled for release are also welcome to take this route.

We encourage coins to take the regular path to addition. For those in a hurry, the review fee means we will review your coin – and make a decision within 24 hours. If a positive decision is reached, your coin will be added within 24 hours of the decision being made.

Listing fees are not refundable. We do not guarantee addition, but if you meet the requirements for general addition – then there is no reason why you won’t be added.

Shouldn't they pay us money so that we support them technically and let them make money from the trades on their platform?
I so absolutely NO reason to give THEM money ..

Looking for other coin processors.

https://www.gocoin.com/

They have a sales & a support email, but I think the best bet would be to go directly to the officers.

next  steps?

I am thinking of collecting email addresses, facebook links, and twitter links for the remaining exchanges that do not have voting or a submittal form. I can make a list of things to do daily with prefilled tweets and emails, where you would only need to click a link to send them. You would just need to have an email client configured, but I think for Facebook a link to a profile will have to suffice as there's no way to do it automatically.

A good social media and email campaign will at least get us on their radar, if not result in being added to a couple exchanges or payment processors. This is the inspiration for my idea of how I want future missions to work.. It is people working to get online poker legalized in the US. I would like to use a similar strategy, but combined with emails. http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/57/poker-legislation-forum-brought-you-ppa/weekend-poker-action-plan-keep-telling-sen-kelly-ayotte-17-others-back-poker-1037109/index836.html

Thanks for the help everyone. I agree with Gamey, we should avoid those that request money to be added and focus on the others.

Couldn't we technically bypass gateways, trade on only decentralized exchanges (which we can clone for multiple altcoins) and transact in bitUSD directly?  BitSapphire is making an app to enable this...

Coinhoarder, you are the man for taking the initiative here to reach out the tentacles of the BitShares community into other exchanges and hopefully some Payment Processors. Much respect and kudos.

I have been emailing and submitting votes for the exchanges and processors you have posted in the OPs... everyone who reads this needs to do the same please! I have reached out directly to the Coinport COO about adding BitAssets and integrating their exchange into coinmarketcap.com. Hoping he gives me a friendly reply back.

Please add Coinport as a green exchange on the OP: https://coinport.com/.

Thanks for the hard work and dedication!

The way I look at it is that we could wait for services to be built around BTSX and bitassets, but while we are waiting it could be beneficial to solicit companies already working in the space that might could implement it faster. I think the more options the better when it comes to payment processors and exchanges anyways.

I think getting added to already existing payment processors increases that likelihood a website or service will accept BTSX or bitUSD. You can't just expect them to all drop their current payment processors for one that is newly created that accepts BTSX or bitUSD. Coinpayments.net and Gocoin for instance, already have an extensive network of websites using their shopping cart plugins.

The decentralized solutions aren't ideal IMO in that you can't pay a website requesting Bitcoins for their products or services with BTSX or Bitassets.. There is no way to exchange them in a truly decentralized manner. Getting payment gateways on board will be the 3rd step to this campaign. To make it more likely gateways and payment processors will adopt BTSX and Bitassets, I think it is important to get added to a couple more reputable exchanges.

I agree, the payment processors are really needed to start seeing the basic crypto system grow.  As it is, BTSX is not a Bitcoin fork and I *believe* they gave up on the backwards compatibility.  All this means BTSX will be slightly harder to integrate with services because people can't just drop in bitcoind supporting code to existing solutions. 

I am a little suspect about how much it will impact the market cap TBH, but I think it is a vital and necessary step.
