Im not hating on the guy, Max has some decent content in his videos.

It seems The Crypto Network is getting a better deal out of this than we are, they should be paying Evan for his time...not the other way round. I dont see how this will give Darkcoin coverage, looking at their youtube channel their top video has a whopping 6k views.

Again, not hating...this all seems a little suspicious.

TanteStefana
Nice one some good content there, I will have a proper read after work.

Well, the way I see it, we're in it now, so lets make it the best thing ever and maybe we can catapult both Bitcoin Rush and Darkcoin into the masses :) If anyone could answer hubbie's questions, that'd be awesome :D

I have to head off to work but I'll be watching all day, unless it gets to busy, and tonight I'll try to consolidate every thing (organize).

Things are coming along swimmingly :-D

Big thanx to TS hubby for helping out. Nice to see that somebody actually "gets it" and what BTC Rush "does" and "can do" :) Thank you for your inside-site into this project, GREAT WORK !

YEAH!!!


edit: looks like a slow day here at work, woohoo, so hopefully I'll be able to ge a few things done, review all this.

I am very excited following the threads. My demographics span globally from the U.S. to China and Europe. Surely, most of the audience is tech oriented, entrepreneurs, crypto startups, merchants and general newcomers to the cryto scene. They are very interested in what is coming. Companies that are featured in my show are bringing a good amount of viewers into the show.
Big compliment on Tante Stefana's husband, great work. Thanx ;)
I am staying up to date reading the threads. Thank you dark coin!

4.Why is privacy important ,
At the moment your main point does not come across clear enough.

I would like for it to start with “Privacy in essence is about freedom”
(Because you cannot be free if you are monitored by a centralized/ decentralized group,
you need your individuality)

Please think about it, you could go to bbc and ask them for one decent report on DarkCoin. Good luck. I love you too.

Never mind f2000.....

We'll still be moving forward with this project.

Anybody that does not want to participate, will not be forced to.

We are looking for ideas to move this project forward and we currently have a really good base to work from.

We will continue to build upon this base.

We have about 1-2 weeks to get this wrapped up, no pressure :-D


Never mind the bullies Bitcoin Rush :-D



edit: Once I get home from work I'll be able to review and consolidate what we currently have. If not tonight, in the AM, EST

fernando Please change the thread title to "Bitcoin Rush episode Thread" to avoid further confusion. That was my fault, sorry!

TanteStefana You and your husband are coming up with great ideas! Thanks.

MangledBlue Thank you for helping. We will need to finalize the text for Bitcoin Rush and then think about what images or videos we will put in the video.

eduffield How soon would you be able to provide a monologue for the episode?

ALL: I am going to get in contact with the creators of the Bitcoin Animated video, and will let you know what they say!

Husband again here. Nice to see BTC Rush on the board - hello and welcome.
That's great about your viewers and that they're all over the globe. I think our community is quickly coming around to the idea that working with you is a wonderful opportunity for us. Thank you.

To the community: we need more thoughts, please, on our call or calls to action and our talking points. What are the most exciting elements and features? What makes "headline statements?" I think, again, that part of BTC Rush's strength is that he pumps up headline-like statements in a bold and energetic way. We need to help him make a great show by coming up with headline-like descriptions of Dark Coin features and positives.

Also, if we want to tempt merchants into using Dark Coin, what do we say to do this? I would think that that's a major call to action, getting merchants to allow people to pay with our coin, right? Well, do we point blank ask them? Beg them? I don't think that will work. But if we give BTC Rush some positives for how letting customers buy with Dark and how it will improve business, that might work - done in a news-like fashion. So, what are these positives, please?

Let me again say that being straightforward, professorial, or dull (sorry, don't mean to offend, but while such approaches have their time and place, this isn't it) would be a disaster here. This is marketing, and BTC Rush has a natural instinct for the emotion and excitement needed to make this work. Please help us focus on strong selling points and points that have "wow factor" - and let's help BTC Rush make a really great show. We don't have much time.

I believe that Bitcoin Rush's style would be good for these types of statements (playing up the positives about Darkcoin):

- The change from X-Coin to Darkcoin
- Debunking the myths such as closed source, scamcoin with the instamine (that would be huge to clear up)
- The creation of Darksend, and it's subsequent radical improvement Darksend+ (he could have fun with this)
- He could have a little spiel about Masternodes, what they do, how people can get involved
- The game changer that is InstantX

As far as playing to merchants, we could just have him spell out the positives of doing this (e-Cash, can't track it; Darkcoin is a growing coin with more users everyday)

Hope this helps!

From husband: Wife and I have been discussing whether or not we should, for example, get into the reason why the coin went from X-coin to Dark Coin – and try to fend off the handful of namby-pambies who think the name Dark Coin is so nefarious. I think that’s a complete waste of this resource! We have a golden opportunity here to seize the high ground and make our coin’s future. Fending off the meaningless whining from a handful of ankle-biters is surrendering the future! Screw them! Ignore them the same way you ignore trolls and plow forward!
If this is addressed at all, it should be a quick joke – a quick dismissal of an obvious non-issue – and a laugh.
We should only explain the coin’s history in a way that is dramatic and interesting, or viewers will click off. Put yourself in other peoples’ minds a moment. Short attention span. They surf – click – click – click – you got ten seconds, maybe, to grab them, and then you have to work to keep them. We can’t be boring!
I’m so sorry to sound like this – and I know I risk being rude, but please understand the brutal, harsh realities that we face. We should tell a David and Goliath story – us against the big coins that are already established. We took on (Evan and the inner circle mostly, I assume) the challenge – and we are the ones who created a winner.
The need for privacy and secrecy could be a huge part of this show. Think about Snowden and the NSA scandal – that was big news.
Whatever we talk about, imho, has to be exciting and dramatic – always referencing the price of failure, the risks, the nail-biting – will it work will it work omg will it work? YES! It works.
That’s the clothesline on which we hang our data.
I’m still wondering what our call to action is (or are). We’ve got to get merchants using Dark Coin, right? If so, how? How do we get them to do this?
What else can we do to grow the coin in a meaningful way that won’t fizzle out?
InstantX seems VERY exciting to me and may be the centerpiece of our main call to action. Its speed is a huge issue. Maybe this is how we tempt merchants, casinos and whatever into letting customers use DRK. Be fast or be in the past!
BTC Rush uses graphics – he seems to stand in front of a green screen in later episodes. What cool graphics can we use? Make? Borrow?
Again, I’m sorry if I’m sounding pushy or rude, but this shark tank is the world I’ve lived in for decades now. We have to do this right, or it’s a waste.

From ME! I want you to know Tao, I already wrote the whole thing up again with your suggestions, which I thought were great, LOL, when I delivered it to hubby, he said ^^^ He has experience, so we should probably consider what he says :)

Please comment people :D

I really appreciate your work and also the open discussion which allows me to learn a lot about DarkCoin which will help to achieve a successful show. Yes I can incorporate video, images, sounds and what have you, easily into the show. And you are right I am working entirely with green screen. That's all for now, I am in production for the next episode.

Wow. :). Some great ideas coming here.

So, again, if we want commercial adoption... What can we do to assist in this? Can we not play the big instantX card and explain more about it? It'll have to be official since no one other than the devs know how it's really going to work.

Well, it will be Evan that is featured, LOL. So I guess he is the right person to talk about it ;P

Ok so we have at the top of the list, instant
We of course have DarkSend and that it's been working perfectly.

Goals:
Need more volume, more trade happening, and more people mixing
Need more masternodes
Need commercial adoption

How to get this:
Would be nice to have another video already ready to point to on how to use the DKC wallet and a video on how to set up a masternode.
Sell the excitement of innovation and a fast moving coin (It's easier to keep up than to catch up?)

BTW, my husband is going to blast my suggestions, LOL. But it can't hurt to brain storm.

I have never done a video but I might give it a try. With the learning curve it might be best if someone else does this, as it'll probably take me a lot of time. But I'm gonna try anyway ;P

Could we get some subtle graphics relating to darkcoin. Maybe some branding for instantX and the masternodes? Can we impose that on the green background?

We've got some pretty tough competition with the banks, they've had years to practice their Point of Sale craft. We'll at least need to match them, either mobile phone or plastic access to our DRK with touch/wave interaction for transactions.

That will have to be our bare minimum..

Explain in more detail? Surely if we've got mobile wallets combined with instantX and a QR reader, we're there?

hey guys
TaoOfSatoshi as i was worried when this first came up, well we are 3 weeks into this and i believe we should simplify the ideas and get a good interview/self recording of Evan
and get this show on the road !
At some point we will be into IT and by then you/we have to rework all of this as time /development caught up with this project !
Know what I mean !
lets get this rolling and we do that video / animation when there is some funding from the Foundation and such !
