Bitshares scores a measley 5% for its social media presence... we can do so much better and it would push bitshares to very near the top of binance rankings... something to consider for all the twitter haters :)

Fractional reserve CNY here we come!

I think this is an excellent idea, it may not be the whole solution but it would certainly help contribute to it. We are most probably not going to find one single solution to avoiding global settlements and clearing margin calls but rather find a number of things that all contribute to improving the situation. This would also not decrease the supply of smartcoins.

Another thought... Would it be possible to create a debt market, where people could put their bad debts up for sale?

You need coindesk to carry it.

Look at this article that Edan Yago wrote: some more research, the guy isn't really a journalist. Click his name, he does 1 or 2 articles a year.

But his opinions were published. His CementDAO was featured at the top of the article "for free".

Coindesk (which a lot of people read) rarely reports on Bitshares -- whether we think we're important or not. That is because we haven't followed this:

Simply blogging, and sending out tweets, requires you to build your own following.   Take an existing following and get those eyeballs to see what you have to write about... coindesk gives free advice on how to get that done.  Other publications will tell you how to get it done there too..

I agree we need to pay for publications on these "news sites" that would definitely be an option IMO.

With regards to Twitter, a paid campaign is very cheap and reaches large numbers of users and you can set it up so you only pay for link clicks etc. So we would only be paying for people who actually read the articles. No need to build up a following.

I'm not much of a twitter fan either.
Or facebook, or instagram, or snapchat, or even youtube. Let's stick with steem and dtube if we are going the social media route.
I would really like a site.
Multiple Writers too, just like
Start with 5 professional crypto-savvy, Bitshares-savvy Writers.
An impartial Editor will be needed as well, so that no self-plugs or other conflicts of interest are in play.
6 people for 6 months, 1 article per week each, and then renew their contract if worthy.
Michael Taggart, Tony Peacock, Kimchi-King Kevin, Crypto Kong, Max Wright, _______________.
(sorry if i forgot anyone)

Appreciate the feedback, IMO posting to Steem is just preaching to the choir, the only people who use it are Dan Larrimer fans who already know about BitShares, we need to reach the wider crypto community. Dtube & bitTube on the other hand, I quite like the idea of and had considered it myself as you can earn crypto for your videos and could be a way of creating a (small) income for the reserve pool as and when videos are watched.

This sounds like a good initiative Kong - there is quite a lot of disagreement over where efforts are best spent to get 'mainstream' attention so phasing it seems logical.

I think twitter is a good way of reaching people, the amount of people on there who think Bitshares is a dead project is just insane.

Will the articles be on medium?

The articles can be written on whichever platform the community thinks is best, Medium is a good choice IMO. I am also happy to have promoted tweets come from the BitShares Twitter account, if they are willing to work with us on this. I'm open to any and all suggestions.

General Discussion / Marketing Proposal
« on: November 22, 2018, 04:59:14 pm »
There has been a lot of talk recently about marketing campaigns for BitShares. Gabriel and myself are considering creating a small proposal. Some of you know me from my involvement in DEXBot and may have read some of the articles I've written about BitShares. Gabriel is the DEXBot website creator and runs the DEXBot twitter account.

There are a lot of ideas about what we should and shouldn't do. It is my opinion we should start off with some very small proposals, gauge their success and decide whether to proceed or not. This may entice others to get involved and hopefully get the ball rolling on bigger and better ideas.

The proposal will be a simple one. We will create some articles about BitShares and start a paid for twitter advertising campaign. I was thinking the first proposal would be for 3-5 articles which would be promoted on twitter. We can always re use the articles and create another proposal to promote them on other sites such as Facebook.

So really I have two questions. Is the community willing to pass a proposal to do this and if so what subjects or topics would you like us to cover?

I am happy to have all articles checked by proxies before release.

Can we please get a report on results from this operation?

Tough one... I'm actually quite unsure where I stand on this one... How many people is 50%+1 for commitee majority? Less than 10 I presume. Its a very small number of people that governments can put pressure on to seize assets. I dont like that at all. On the other side of things... its good to have options to be able to stay compliant. I lean towards my first point than my second but i am in the middle.

Would be good to include DEXBot in any marketing efforts. People will be very interested to learn they can use free decentralised trading software too. It's another good selling point of BitShares and will help to pull in new users.

Fantastic idea, if it can be implemented it should be. This would drive up demand for BTS and smart coins. 👍

Stakeholder Proposals / BSIP22

I'd like to restart discussion on this BSIP. Seems to make a lot of sense and I would love to see it implemented... also seems to have been forgotten about.

I think the amount of outrage at this proposal is quite clear from posts in this thread and @bitcrab should withdraw it and rethink how else our smartcoins can be improved. This idea is a no go.

Its not just the price that should be kept constant and stable on a stable coin but the rules too. You cant keep changing the rules as you please. I agree that we dont have to stick with the original vision and should try and improve but removing global settlement is not it. Any changes should be made across all assetts too not just bitCNY. There should be a standard that represents all smart coins not a different set of rules for each coin.

I have started making the Easydex.ETH-BTS market and the Easydex.ETH-Open.ETH market. Those who make other similar markets such as Open.ETH-GDEX.ETH should come and join me and get this market kick started, creating more opportunities for market makers and arbitrage traders :)
