From stealth923 in Discord. Discuss here, thanks.
Plus they couldn't exist without government support and have an almost insignificant share of the motor industry yet have a market cap around 5x that of Toyota. I was going to say it's a crappy example but after writing that it's actually looking like a damn good comparison with crypto :/If the product is any good it will sell itself. Again, look at the TSLA example, spoilter, they spend ZERO on marketing.
Interestingly, their product isn't that good either.
"DCG and DIF are requesting ~500 dash per month for the next 6 months for dash platform marketing warchest. Thank you."
This raises two questions for me :
Why is the DIF involved in a DCG marketing initiative ? Does the DIF have any marketing experience ? Are they involved because of escrow ? Clarity is needed for their involvement
If 6 months are scheduled to get a Platform marketing warchest in place, does that mean it will take at least 6 months before Dash Platform is ready for release on Mainnet ?
I rather have a platform marketing warchest in place when Dash Platform gets released on Mainnet, which as i understand is scheduled for Q1, 2021 ?
(within two months). Has the release of Platform to Mainnet been postponed to Q2 already ?
Also an update on the Head of Marketing function within Dash Core Group would be nice. How many candidates have expressed interest in that function so far ? How close are we to contracting a suitable candidate ? Lastest info i have about that : https://blog.dash.org/dcg-head-of-marketing-52fa56619eac
I think you mean Mainnet ? Dash Platform has been on Testnet since late December 2020 (almost a month now)Lets "wait" for the Dash marketing resource to come on board and let them know there is zero budget. Great planning and foresight /sarcasm.
If we dont have some sort of warchest going, when Platform is ready for testnet, nothing but word of mouth is the strategy?????
I dont care who holds it, it just needs to start being built now!
