I am NOT in favor of spending money on banner ads that I have trained my eyes to ignore.
Even the modal ads that popup in my face and dim out the rest of the screen... my eyes immediately seek to the corner looking for the X to close it.
 
[member=23]bitcrab[/member] - have you considered paid placement instead? where the "ad" is mixed in with a very interesting, educational article by a Writer that people follow? "in your face" ads are very annoying imo, and if you want to advertise, make it educational to entice interest, and hence clicks. you will get a much better roi. people yearn for these little tidbits of knowledge.
 
[member=39182]tbone[/member] - I really like your proposed default / DEX "Homepage". this dex homepage should be live before [member=23]bitcrab[/member] posts that ad and links it to the web wallet though.
 
on a side note, I think it would be great to have a reactjs "ticker tape" right underneath of the main menu. spice it up a bit. i bet [member=11456]svk[/member] could do that in two shakes of a lamb's tail if we ask him real nice-like......  :-*

I kind of like the idea of the ticker tape.  But it's not for everyone (some people think scrolling text on a webpage feels very 90s).  So there should be an option to turn it off.  Either way, though, I hope we can get that default / DEX "homepage" in place, as well as the language selector on the header first.

[member=11456]svk[/member], any thoughts about when that homepage can go up?  Also, can you put the language selector on the header so it's always highly available?  That would be fantastic.

the banner ad is already online:



as current time is good to promote a decentralized exchange, I can not wait to put it on.

the pic is not very satisfactory, however it is accepted and include enough infomations, if I can get a better one in recent future I'll replace the current one.

[member=30868]kenCode[/member]  I do not think such a banner ad in 8btc.com is very annoying, as 1.vistors can just ignore it. 2.a visitor to 8bts.com is possiblly interested in DEX.

[member=39182]tbone[/member] [member=4465]alt[/member] [member=11456]svk[/member] I agree that we should have a welcome page or just make the dashboard page a welcome page, with detecting languate from browser setting and put languate setting at the top.

I also draft some Chinese text for putting in the Chinese welcome page, hope that can help:

I don't think it exact to say low to no fees, as assets like OPEN.BTC, OPEN.ETH also charge 0.2% market fees.

Yes, you are right but it is banner. We need something that grabs attantion.

I dont suggest that we should lay about fees. Maybe something more apropriate, I am sure there is better fraze
for "little to no fees" in mandarine.
The massage should be plain simple, right in the point of interest. Nothing more and nothing less.
low fees
could not be closed
could not be hacked

Buy the way could you translate the messages that proposed banner contains. I could only recognize Bitshares.

Ok, what is most valuable advantage points that Bitshares Dex has to offer, related to specific market and current circumstances.

BTW: I use to play guitar. My friends and I loved saying:" First you learn to play and then buy the amplifier."

I think we SERIOUSLY need a better way to deal with API server issues.  If a new user/visitor is browsing the wallet and then is suddenly presented with an API server settings screen, that is embarrassing, damaging and it's an unacceptable user experience. 

How about having the wallet automatically switch to a different API server if it detects high latency?  That should be the default setting, but users should also have the option to lock in on 1 or more API servers of their choice.

I am not in favor of using dilution.

However, for those who are in favor of dilution but do not understand what the elephant in the room looks like, i would just put out some basic information in case you don't :

1. 8BTC.com is like the Chinese version of Coindesk.  Not some small time blogger or some general video website that has too much information unrelated to crypto. And it's not some guy's car which travels across the US and makes videos . Just imagine how BitShares was never once on Coindesk's head space when millions of USD were available and afterward tons of dilutions were assigned to "marketing delegates" and marketeers.
2. After the AD were put up one day, there are dozens of new comers jointed the BitShares QQ group in China. Some of them may not want to use the DEX but simply buy BTS as a investment. If you ask me, it does not hurt to have exposure on a coindesk comparison.
3. The top Chinese exchanges also made ADS on the same spot,  which demonstrated the spot's value in some way.
4. This AD may proved worthless, but "bitshares" will be seen besides Huobi or other big boys. At least money would be wasted on some well known channels rather than the hood of someone's car (i had to stress the car hood thing, LOL)
