Beyond Bitcoin Sponsorship
« on: October 11, 2014, 03:10:57 AM »


Hi guys, I hope I'm familiar enough here that this isn't going to be mauled as a spam post.

I'm beginning to run sponsorship auctions for Beyond Bitcoin - the LTBN podcast I host which had it's humble beginnings right here on these forums. More than anything I'd like to use the ~one minute sponsorship slot as something more than an ad. One way I thought this could be achieved is by promoting delegates and other trusted parties which serve decentralised networks. In this way not only will the sponsor's service reaches 3000 - 23000 ears but the platform they serve will also receive attention and we get to promote these network curator positions as a profitable enterprise worthy of a marketing budget.

The cost to you and profit to me from sponsorship will be negligible but it enables me to bring value to a platform I have an obligation to support (LTBN), provide additional content, educate the public, and support your service and platform. (Yes, I'm talking about Bitshares delegates but keeping the speak neutral)

This is the only announcement of the auctions I will be making apart from the next Beyond Bitcoin episode. To participate just purchase LTBC and submit to the auction through counterwallet.io.

I post this here primarily for discussion as I will repost in DAC Delegates.

Cheers,

Arthur/Legend - whichever you prefer

Thanks for serving batting practice fastballs right down the middle for me.  :) I do not have to explain my point anymore, your post does good enough job for me!


After the above 'Thank you s', here is my proposal
The guy wants a delegate or a few to support the ad spot. I do not think this is necessary or beneficial, in the long run. Here is my suggestion:

A well established member of the community (I propose Xeroc, for both having Counterparty account and LTBCs , and being a person deserving utmost trust and respect) to publishe his BTC/Counterparty address and all willing members of the Bitshares community to send all their (pretty worthless in my mind) LTBCoins for the purpose of purchasing those ad spot(s).
I will be first to send all of mine - I do not know if I have 700 or 3000 of those, but I commit them for this kind of advertisement before I even check.
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

WOW

Counterparty has dropped all of my addresses after address #3, from my wallet!  That for not logging in for 3 mo.  or what?

Anybody has any idea how to retrieve them?



PS
I have a whole lot of nothing in those, but still...

Good idea - Let's not put any real money in their system, let's pay them with their own 'factory-issued' useless tokens!

I have found about 13K of those sitting in one of my accounts. I will send them to the donation address, as soon as the address is published.

I had the same issue.  If you're sure you typed the correct passphrase, the first thing to try is creating a bunch of new addresses within your wallet (it took four new addresses before my old 'disassociated' addresses came back.)

I'm more than happy to donate a pile of LTB coin
