make the landing page work with ?refid so that anyone would have an incentive to advertise it.

very good point. That could help generate much more traffic. Is it possible to do that on self-hosted wordpress website? (I develop on wordpress only and all my marketing "gears" for that I have is on that platform)

Hello everyone,

Yesterday there was an animated discussion around the topic of marketing on Mumble. I wasn't able to be there for the whole discussion since I had to deal with something else simultaneously but it was great to know that people are interested in having a holistic approach to marketing.

As Fuzzy mentioned in an earlier episode of beyondbitcoin, I believe that having a multisig account an a worker's proposal to fund marketing development is vital. That way, we don't have to approve every single marketing move and we can simply have a marketing budget rolling.

I would love the see this happen.

First move

Yesterday, most people agreed that we shouldn't only focus on advertising and hope people join and invest in bitshares. There is a lot more to this puzzle than simply "spay and pray" with advertising dollars.

BUT, while we build that holistic plan, I believe there are things we can start doing right now to get the ball rolling. Bitshares has many products and the the angles to market the platform is endless. But I do believe that if we can just get the exchange working, all the other products and business models will fall into place.

The product: The DEX - The Exchange On The Blockchain
The target market: Crytocurrency Traders
Problem that it solves: The Only Exchange Where You Control Your Private Keys

Why the DEX has the main product to market?

As outlined above, it's a product that is working right now. It's the flagship product of this community and it's working well. There is still improvements necessary, but most of them can be solved via more users and more trading bots.

Why the cryptocurrency traders has the main market?

They are the most likely to understand the jargon of the blockchain and also understand the mechanics of an exchange.

The Plan

Here is what I'm proposing for a plan of action:

1. Build a landing page that we can A/B Test (Possible template: https://www.trading212.com)
2. Run Ads on Coinmarketcap and other websites where cryptotraders hangout
3. Run trading contests of $500 per week for the best market maker and/or other activities we want to promote on the exchange.

Conclusion
I would like to have your feedback on this plan. There is much more we have to think about and plan for beyond this tiny plan of attack. But this at least will get something out there that can be tracked and improved. With multiple A/B Testing we can figure out which headline or value proposition resonate the best with the cryptotrading community.

General Discussion / Re: btsbots wallet release v0.0.1
« on: April 04, 2017, 08:12:13 pm »
I believe that this thing is the #1 best invention to add value to bitshares...now it does need a lot of work to make it more user friendly and if we can have video tutorial to teach people how to make it work for them, I think we've got an army of people who would love to use it.

But it took me 3 weeks to get my head around it because I was worried I would drain my BTS funds with it among other unknowns that kept me from taking action.

FEEDBACK from a newbie

Those questions may seem ridiculous to you but that may give you an insight of how a complete newbie thinks...

I really want to provide liquidity but I need your help to understand this part:




First: What is the "Order Balance" and why is it in CNY? Afterall, I'm in the USDT/BTS market...that's confusing.
Second: My guess is that I have to input spread on both side in order to provide liquidity is that true?
Third: What should I input in the "Spread" section? 1% or -1% (Maybe it would be good to put a default value in there for the complete newbie who just want to run a bot quickly and then once he has more experience, he can easily tinker with it?)
Fourth: How do I make sure the orders won't empty my wallet of BTS when I turn the bot on?

ok. This is a very important topic because it is exactly what's going through my mind right now.

I want to provide liquidity to the market as a BTS holder but I have no clue how to do this.

There is BTSbot, but I have no clue what I am doing. There is no tutorial or anything to help me make sense of it. Should I use 1% spread? -1% spread? On the sell side? Buy side?

If we want BTS to succeed. Maybe there should be a push to educate the users and how to profit from it.

Anybody knowledgeable enough to do tutorials videos on BTS bots and the DEX on how to make a quick profit?

Hey guys,

I'm curious about BTSBOTS. I know bitshares need liquidity to bootstrap some markets. Now, since I'm a marketer and far from being a highly technical guy, I'm curious to know more about it.

1. Can I run a bot profitably?
2. How risky is it?
3. What are the incentives to run a bot myself?
4. How much should I invest in order to make it work?

Thanks [member=36434]Permie[/member]

I was just thinking...as there been an outreach to the DASH community?

I mean, it's great to have digital cash but if you can be tracked from the exchange it becomes kind of a moot point. Could they be a community bitshares lock arm with in the near future with the STEALTH function?

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since I've stopped by bitsharestalk.org, I've just wrote an article on steemit.com that is now on the front page explaining WHY I've decided to re-invest into bitshares: https://steemit.com/bitshares/@cryptoctopus/after-almost-2-years-of-losing-faith-in-bitshares-i-m-back

One thing that picked my interest is the amount of "filled orders" that I'm seeing on cryptofresh.com/charts

Can someone fill me on the latest developments that may be responsible for such a spike in activities? Are there new partnerships? Are there more exchanges using Bitshares as a backend?

Please give me the skinny on this :-)

Yep, I would definitely have an actual reason to use Bitshares if I can bet on the presidential run and other fun prediction markets.
