General Discussion / Marketing Marketing Marketing
« on: April 13, 2017, 04:08:04 pm »
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 / Running Bot for Liquidity and Profit?
« on: March 19, 2017, 03:08:05 pm »
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?

General Discussion / Give me the skinny on bitshares
« on: March 18, 2017, 07:31:16 pm »
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 :-)

Technical Support / Multisig wizard
« on: December 04, 2015, 02:31:05 am »
how much do you think it would cost to have a wizard to help people who want to setup multisig?

all the features are there but boy do you have to know what you are doing!

General Discussion / Building a culture of traders
« on: December 01, 2015, 04:48:50 am »
Now, this is just my opinion but I believe that bitshares need more trading to be happening on the network in order for the market to become more efficient.

Many people simply wait and hope that it's going to happen by itself.

But we already have a few thousand users who for the majority DON'T TRADE.
To me, that's an issue. Especially when the foundation of our business model is to be a decentralized exchange.

Please reply if you either:

- Want to learn how to daytrade on OpenLedger
- Already have experience daytrading on the network.

General Discussion / Increasing BitShares Revenue
« on: December 01, 2015, 03:00:52 am »
I may not be the only one here in this situation.

I really like the bitshares and what it stands for BUT I find myself looking at openledger and I have no clue how I can make money doing day trading on it. Absolutely no clue.

If I had enough knowledge to at least believe I could make money trading on it, I would be using a lot more. I would be trading on multiple market and generate fees to the network.
 
Now, who do you know that could teach people like me to use OL for daytrading?
This is a golden opportunity for someone who has this knowledge to make referral revenue.

Please reply if you:
- Want to learn how to daytrade on OpenLedger
- Already have experience daytrading on the network.

General Discussion / What's going on with LimeWallet?
« on: November 26, 2015, 06:18:56 pm »
https://github.com/limewallet/limewallet/graphs/contributors

Doesn't seem like anyone is working on this for the past month.

I loved the design [member=224]cass[/member] did for them and wish we could have an open BETA soon...if it isn't dead.

General Discussion / Business opportunity currently opening
« on: November 24, 2015, 02:40:29 am »
There is a legitimate business opportunity presenting itself on the BitShares platform.

In rapid succession we have OBits, METAFEES and SHAREBITS coming up with their crowdfunded profit sharing businesses.

Today, we discovered that we could also do the same with some of our features...such as stealth transactions.

There is a host of task someone need to do in order to create, define and manage the UIA over time (the buyback process for example) as well as doing a good launch promotion.

If someone out there that has the knowledge of doing that, that person could get a cut on every new feature and project being crowdfunded on the bitshares platform. (see: https://koinify.com/ )

The upside is unlimited.

We could all benefit from such service and could gain new users by attracting new investors into our ecosystem.

The opportunity is here...who wants to pick it up?

Technical Support / Emotokens / UIA swapbot
« on: November 23, 2015, 02:38:24 am »
okay, I would like to have a swapbot that automatically swap any emotoken that I choose 1:1.

How would I go about doing that or how much should I expect to pay for something like this. Either something I can embed in an iframe or a wordpress plugin.

General Discussion / A discussion about social tokens....(EMOTOKENS?)
« on: November 21, 2015, 03:29:51 pm »


When I received my first FISTBUMP, something in my marketing DNA clicked.
I started to noodle the idea in my head and realized that we may have something much bigger than most of us can imagine.

DOGECOIN has though us that it's not only about features but culture. A fun culture of people who like to give to charity and share memes on reddit. They beat us with their marketcap!

As I think about the masses of people on social media who couldn't care less about cryptography, blockchain tech, decentralization, etc.
An exchange or Smartcoins are way over their head. But with social tokens...we have something they can start using and play with. (thanks to sharebits.io)

With this kind of tokens we can introduce millions to cryptocurrencies without them knowing it. Kids can send each other tokens in school during classes and make each other laught and people on social media can express a wider variety of emotions by giving away an "EMOTOKEN" (when emotions collide with tokens)

Once Sharebits is develop to the point that even your grandma can use it, these memes in currency form will spread like wildfire.

From that point, all we need is to give an instant exchange from TOKEN > BTS > BITUSD and we've introduce people to smartcoins.

Social Tokens or EMOTOKENS can be the "gateway drug" to BitShares Smartcoins use as a digital currency.

Please add to this discussion with your perspective in this "social layer" of bitshares.

General Discussion / ShareBits Marketing Task Force
« on: November 20, 2015, 02:37:58 pm »
I am opening this tread because I would like to connect with people who would like to brainstorm and work together to market ShareBits upon release.

In many ways, it market itself but I would like to lock arm with other people to "invade" the internet with it.
We can talk strategy, niche, alternative use, etc.

Fuzzy has let me know that people who are helping out will receive BROWNIE.PTS which is going to be generously sharedropped on in the future for SHAREBITS.

Who's interested?

General Discussion / Are we missing this VERY important business function?
« on: November 18, 2015, 11:39:30 pm »



Last week, bytemaster mentioned that he would like to see that our exchange have the similar user experience that users expect from any centralized exchange out there. Which to me make total sense. Login and password and that's it. (lightwallet or full node for higher security)

Now, that made me think of something we may be missing something that all exchanges have.

Customer/Technical Support

Isn't it frightening when it takes 3 days to get a reply from customer support at an exchange?
Would you trust such exchange?

How do we handle this within the wallet?

Should it be something that OpenLedger has to take care by themselves or is it something BitShares has to think about?

Technical Support / [SOLVED] Creating and Claiming UIAs
« on: November 17, 2015, 12:46:16 am »
Hey, I am curious about what happen once one create a UIA within OpenLedger.
I see that it would cost me about 5000BTS. But once the UIA is created, is it suppose to show up directly in my wallet?
If not, how do I claim them?

General Discussion / Bitshares paper trading?
« on: November 15, 2015, 10:33:51 pm »
I was listening to Beyond Bitcoin Show of November 6th. BM mentioned a demo website located on a central server with fictitious tokens as being an item on the roadmap.

I know it is for people to test dev stuff but can we use it for paper trading too?

I myself would love to play in a "sandbox" with fictional BTS, USD, BTC, etc.

Connected to a good tutorials and "voila"...Bitshares Academy!
This could also serve as a funnel to get people to buy Lifetime Memberships when they are ready to trade for real.

Anybody else interested in BitShares paper trading?

Technical Support / Bounty 3000BTS - help me recover my funds.
« on: November 09, 2015, 05:47:56 pm »
okay, it's been almost a month that I am trying to import my keys to bitshare 2.0.
First, when I try to get the backup from 0.9.3c .json file and import it inside openledger,it's says to me that it's the wrong file type. When I try to do it on the CLI, there are no buttons to move forward and if I press enter, I get a blank white page.

Then, I went to the console of 0.9.3c and typed:
wallet_dump_account_private_key myaccount active_key

and entered it in the openledger wallet. Now it says I can claim 18k BTS...missing about 70k BTS!

What is going on here?

How can I get the complete copy of the blockchain so that I can have a successful 0.9.3c backup?
