Is the marketing execution in English happening?
« on: October 08, 2014, 05:46:59 AM »

I had hopes the conference would see bitshares reassert its uptrend, it did not.  Am I seller at these prices? No not till $10 dollars each.

Anyways, opinions, is the marketing execution by Brian Page doing us justices.

What is exactly going on specifically?

It seems that lots of people were thinking that some miracle would happen at the conference and make BTSX go up, and when that didnt happen they all sold.

Nothing you currently see is good enough to service a million new eyeballs who have no idea about crypto lore.  Both marketing and engineering are building systems and processes never before seen for use in on boarding the masses.

I figure we all have time to invest at least one more paycheck while BTSX is having its pre-public blowout  sale.  But wait!  If you act now you can get a second BTSX for the same low price!

Ah, so we're feeling the bitcoin contraction, just delayed a bit; assuming the reason we fared so well was a buy-in in preparation for the Vegas miracle.

So given the ~18% drop in BTC, BTSX should bottom-out somewhere between 600 and 700 before the marketing push sends us to heights unseen.

Also, don't forget the Overstock effect.  Im sure there were some who invested with the expectation that we would get the business of building the crypto stock market.  They may be selling now since that didn't happen.   However, I am still concerned about marketing execution.  I know we have assurances that things are coming, but I'm not even seeing the basic stuff like Brand awareness and product positioning.  In my (unscientific) survey of media, it just seems that other brands in the 2.0 space get far more mention than we do. We should be the talk to the town!  We have the technology and we are pretty much at the forefront.   

  Marketing has always been a concern for me with I3.  I'm not picking on the current regime though, IMO its been that way since it's inception..   I have further resources that I want to commit, but I am patiently waiting to be dazzled by the up coming promised programs before moving forward.  Lets hope it'll be soon.

The client is currently slow and buggy with lots of UI issues and in general just gives a bad user experience. There is no mobile client, no blockchain.info style web wallet, also no easy way to create paper wallets (bitaddress.org style).

I don't think marketing should start until all these things have been created and polished.

DPOS and bitUSD are currently the best product concepts in the crypto industry, but the implementation and the packaging are not finished. I have faith that the developers will improve them over the next few months, and personally I expect a January "launch" (with no real evidence to back this up).

If there's one thing I'm a bit disappointed with, it's how the bitshares community/ecosystem is currently spread out over tonnes of different products and DACS. In the short term the top priority should really be to perfect the bitUSD user experience. It's the killer app and if it takes off then the future of all bitshares DACS will be secured.

One more paycheck implies 1-2 weeks.....because that is how often most people get paid here in the US.

Use of the phrase "we all have time" means you have to consider all possible next paydays.   :)

I also threw in the phrase "at least" to guard against promising anything specific at all.   ;)

But knowing what I know about this team, they can't be oblivious to all these things.  Instead, I think they've got a few tricks up their sleeve.  Will the marketing push coincide with the release of the new BitSapphire wallet?

That would make perfect sense. The community should be ready to do its part once it comes to that
