Yes I like the idea of the Darksend+ graphic being displayed with an explanation of what exactly happens. If we could do it animated, that would be a bonus!I'm thinking something like a simplified version of this
mixed with a bit of this
I was picturing it being more horizontal, and really simple graphics so as not to distract. If we decided to do it we could reach out to the community to see if anyone could do it, and if not, we could probably track someone down somewhere like this https://www.elance.com/r/contractors/q-animator/ ... though I'd be surprised if we couldn't find someone through friends etc.
Bitcoin Rush I must say, you take a little getting used to, but I feel you will be perfect for this vid!Well Bitcoin Rush is very traditional, but with Dark Coin I will make it real for sure maaaaaan.
I will post this link for you:Thought I might get a better reply if I signed up here, but when trying to post links I get an error saying I need member for two days or more. I cant even link you to my original post on BCT:
Best I can do at the moment (I will update this post when the time limit has been removed)
F2000 put together a good list..Now while Bitcoin Rush is not my cup of tea, does anyone have any alternatives to suggest? Perhaps we should do the whole video ourselves? Instead of simply shooting Rush down.
Yes, I totally agree...it comes down to taste. I hope it doesnt look like I'm attacking the guy (im not), I just want to make sure we are going down the right road.Just to note I quite like Bitcoin Rush and don't mean any offence. It's just a question of suitability.
Nail/head.Spending money within the crypto scene is a complete waste. Cryptognats already know what Darkcoin is, and they mostly don't give a shit about it.
If you're going to spend money on marketing, spend it on something that will appeal to a broader audience, ie. hire a professional firm to do it.
I think a simple animation explaining how, why and general privacy wouldn't be a waste at all. It makes a great thing to refer to, it helps non-cryptognats understand Darkcoin is not just about darkmarkets and means journalists/public have an official viewpoint/overview to learn about Darkcoin. But short, simple, animated. Stylistically neutral.Aye, the recent forexminute article stresses how Dark is lagging because of lack of adoption by merchants. Nobody is using it so it's just become a commodity. I'm not sure how this can be addressed beyond people just spreading their Dark around more. Plug 300 dollars into Bittrex and then spread it about would do more good than videos, etc.
I see people on /r/darknetmarkets spreadng false information (either intentionally or simply because they dont know). For example, last time I checked they still thought centralised mixers were "good enough"...promo videos would squash rumours like those quick and painless. Not that we should focus on these types of markets (infact we, Darkcoin should prob distance ourselves from them)Aye, the recent forexminute article stresses how Dark is lagging because of lack of adoption by merchants.

Plus and perhaps more importantly, sites will use the videos as "click bait" on their sites...almost guaranteed. Most tech journalists dont even bother wiring proper articles anymore.
F2000 put together a good list..
Can we remove the word official from this thread please?
If this is just a community organised interview then I'll back off and be still. But an offical video should be like the samples in f2000's list
I totally agree, I would like to change it, if someone could tell me how. When I go to the Edit OP, I don't see where to change the title. Maybe, if a mod is watching, we can change the title to Bitcoin Rush Video Thread (This is not the Official Promo Video)
f2000 pbleak Sapereaude darkwing thelonecrouton tungfa defunctec ALLHello to all!
I have met, through the DTPI, a gentleman who runs the show "Bitcoin Rush". He is a wonderful, funny speaker and the team and I feel that it would be great to have him feature us on his show. This would not be our official promo video, so these fears can be put to rest....
Please click here to see an example of his work:
This will be a great opportunity to help debunk the myths that surround Darkcoin, show off our superior technology, and promote Masternode ownership.
An episode of "Bitcoin Rush" usually lasts about 15 minutes, and is divided up into many smaller parts. However, for this episode, he has agreed to dedicate the whole episode to Darkcoin.
He usually asks for a $70-100 donation for his services, but we would take up the whole episode, so we offered him $300 in DRK and he accepted.
So, we need help to come up with content for the video, (images, creative snippets, and whatnot) and to crowdfund the $300.00 in DRK.
Use this thread to brainstorm possible ideas....
An added bonus, Evan has agreed to do an interview, or recorded monologue for the show!
The host of "Bitcoin Rush" will create an account here, post on this thread, and help us out as well!
Please submit ideas here. Looking forward to the community's creativity! Spread the word as well, Darkcoiners...
