Marketing is NOT one of my strong points. However, with the latest implementations of darksend, I'm so impressed, blown over really with its simplicity and thoroughness in hiding who made the transaction that I'm ready to go to market! I wasn't only a few days ago, but wow, I am now!

Darksend needs to have the user gui smoothed out, commands to set up your wallet to use darksend is a bit klunky for the average person, and needs to be automatic, but I can't imagine that would be hard to clean up. It's really sweet, and I can't imagine anyone not being impressed. For gifted coders and intellectuals, they may say "oh that's so simple!" But that's the genius-ness of the solution! I LOVE it. I'm ready to do my part in making noise, give me ideas please???

I think we (the community) and the devs should be gearing up for a marketing push, small pushes everytime a great beta is released and a big push once it's integrated into the main client and idiot proof (aka just click a button - no debug functions). There's lots of work to do and lots of people to contact.

Yes agreed. Hope someone will guide me. I felt like spamming a little "get to know Darkcoin" here and on reddit, inspired by my bitcoin mining pool opening a question as to which new coin to include :) I hope they take note. Everyone else was asking for DogeCoin again, ugh!

Its always time to market. Until darkcoin can market itself then it is up to us to market it.

There's been quite a bit of traffic on twitter today about Darkcoin. Not sure if it's coming from folks on here or on the bitcointalk thread, but lots of positive remarks.

Cool, I hope they're tweeting Moolah :)

Yes, I feel like the time is right for marketing and word of mouth getting loud. DarkSend is working really well, the wallet and functions will probably never be completely complete while the developer has passion for it, and will undoubtedly come up with other amazing functions for it. These are exciting times!

A media list is now with the marketing co-ordinators, and lots of other clever (low cost) initiatives are on the table. Don't worry, TanteStefana. DRK has attracted a lot of smart people who are giving their time for free in some cases, as they can appreciate just how crucial the privacy issue is. We have ex PR specialists and pro writers who are ready and raring to go. So, things are happening in the background. The big push will most likely happen in the next 10 to 14 days.
