P-REP Proposal; ICON, 20% exposure in top crypto event of 2020, reach 100+ universities/corporate partners (BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD), organized by MouseBelt.
Summary: Event site:https://www.ri2020.io/ Event date: May 18th, 2020 P-PREP Commitment Date: April 30th, 2020 Telegram:u/markusreisner We believe we have a strong proposition to market ICON in a meaningful way to some of the largest communities in crypto. The MouseBelt team has the largest global network of over 100+ universities in 20+ countries. Over the last few months, 10+ university blockchain events we were working with got canceled for obvious reasons. Due to that fact, and our understanding of our reach we decided to launch a virtual conference. Since April 10th here is what happened:
We have enrolled over 100+ partners and universities
With BlockTV’s distribution (we are taking over the site for 1+ months) and our post-conference strategy, this content will reach 5+ million views
Over 5000 people have registered between Eventbrite and Facebook (with 21 days to go, we expect 20,000 people registered)
We have invested $70,000 to professionally produce this 72-hour event with BlockTV
We believe we have surpassed Cointelegraph and Consensus in reach and production quality.
We believe this is the #1 conference in crypto currently.
MouseBelt will invest over $70k+ into this event. We would like to have fellow P-Reps invest $20k (this will go 100% to BlockTV production cost). The benefit to the ICON community will be:
Owning 20% of the conference “screen time” at a 50% discount
Increased exposure to over 100+ top universities working on blockchain
Partnership with Anheuser-Busch InBev, and Coca Cola for one of our hackathon events (or similar).
We are open to adding as many additional benefits as possible as we are a part of the ICON community
Background: MouseBelt is a popular blockchain ecosystem consisting of multiple parts:
Top 3 global blockchain accelerator, investing into early to mid-stage blockchain projects
MouseBelt as ICON developers: Our engineering team has implemented token assets on ZenSports (SPORTS), the first STO on the ICON network, and GrowYourBase, the #1 IRC2 application token in market capitalization on the ICON network. Currently, we are developing the Balanced network in concert with ICX_Station, PARROT9, and Iconosphere. Balanced will bring synthetic assets backed by ICX to the ICON network, as well as tokenized staked ICX. This can assist with both a stable asset for payments, and a base for other DeFi applications MouseBelt as a P-Rep: We have been a Main P-Rep most of the time since decentralization of the network and so far had utilized our funds for student education. Such as the “ICON in a box” workshops and the Milwaukee Blockchain Conference, which we sponsored in a direct ICX payment and the second annual payment for UCLA’s blockchain engineering course. REIMAGINE2020, Conference details: Conferences have always been an integral part of the blockchain space to promote projects in the industry. With recent evolutions around the globe, things have changed. They either got canceled or delayed. We have created REIMAGINE2020, a virtual conference. Shared by the ICON Foundation on April 18. We can effectively and efficiently promote ICON to the world through Reiamgine2020 | BlockTV. The driving force behind the conference is: highest quality of Content matched with the best production quality for Video. The funds will allow MouseBelt to promote ICON logo/branding throughout the conference/programming for straight 72 hr of live streaming. Additionally, we have the opportunity to properly place ICON logo/branding in highly favorable on-screen placements (tickers/commercials/plugs and continuous branding) reaching 5M viewers globally. ICX Station is providing a Keynote to drive global interest. Confirmed partners
Influencers we are reaching out to: Chamath Palihapitiya, Adam Back, Ray Dalio, Andreessen Horowitz, Michael Novogratz, Naval Ravikant, Balaji S. Srinivasan, Su Zhu, Charlie Lee, Nick Szabo, Riccardo Spagni, Fred Wilson, Max Keiser, Winklevoss, Air Paul, Michael Arrington, Peter Schiff, Paolo Adroino, Elizabeth Stark, Marc Andreessen, A. Pompliano, Patrick Byrne, Brock Pierce, CZ, Vitalik, Andreas M. Antonopoulos
3. As far as hard data for "attendees" we have two signals:
5000+ attendees on Facebook and Eventbrite, with 3 weeks to go (13X MORE than Virtual Blockchain Week!)
Attendee list includes a mix of media, university representatives, C-level executives, developers, and startup founders
ARK's prime focus for outreach at the moment revolves around generating interest among developers, businesses, and crypto projects currently on Ethereum, as well as imprinting on aspiring talent in the blockchain space. ARK cofounders are involved with outreach projects using personal funds, and ARK.io has attended and sponsored many conferences including ToFinance, Token Fest, ArkCon, BC & C Con, NABC, Miami BC, World Crypto Con Las Vegas, and more notably, dominated Consensus 2017 NYC and its Singapore satellite conference. ARK.io and the ARK community are very future oriented, and as such the team and even delegates have made marks on many hackathons as well, which are competitions among computer science students at universities. ARK had strong presence at BlockHack, Open Geneva, BitCamp, HackPrinceton, HackCambridge, IoT Princeton, JSHacks, and HackUC. ARK's Communication Specialist Justin Renken has given multiple presentations at Santa Cruz Bitcoin Meetup, BlockchainNW Seattle and World Crypto Con Las Vegas, and Justin as well as ARK CMO Travis Walker have been featured on multiple video and written interviews online. Justin even hosts a weekly podcast to inform the world on all things ARK, and sends ARK stickers all over the world. Another part of ARK's outreach strategy is to partner with solid projects that bring synergy, and ARK even has a partnership with Bitcoin PR Buzz for press release dissemination. ARK's outreach efforts are expected to increase as the ARK toolkit's capabilities grow.
What do you think about ARK outreach? Do you have an opinion on ARK's outreach strategy? Are you satisfied with ARK's current outreach efforts? Are there areas where you feel there should be stronger focus? How is the ARK community (delegates and members) handling outreach? Write your response below. Suggestions OK, and bringing up outreach done by delegates and community members is OK. Keep partnerships general as they will get their own day.
Subscribe to our Subreddit as well, and come back tomorrow for more!
Remember, you can go back and contribute to other days and still earn ARK.
At the end of every month I will be writing an update on the Bitcoin Cash Fund to keep everyone up-to-date on what has been going on. This will include Active Projects, Complete Projects, Bitcoin Cash Meetups, Skills Sought, and BCF Organisation updates.
Bitcoin Cash Treasure Hunt What's more exciting than a little treasure hunt? The Bitcoin Cash treasure hunt initiative is underway as we speak. Members of the community will be able to design a unique paper wallet for the worldwide scavenger hunt. The wallet will have instructions designed to give beginners some background information about Bitcoin Cash, and a link to "https://findbitcoin.cash," which will have instructions on how they can claim their funds. The site will serve a multitude of purposes. Firstly, it will host a map, where community members can hide wallets and provide geo-mapped clues as to where they are. Secondly, a resource for beginners to learn some basics of Bitcoin Cash. Lastly, it will provide links to resources in the community to expand their knowledge about the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem! We anticipate the site to be up and running in full functionality by the time next weeks update comes out. This project is expected to launch next week.
SeatacBCH The goal of the SeatacBCH project is to prepare, deploy, and build a ground-based grassroots movement in the Seatac area of the U.S.A. to promote the acceptance of Bitcoin Cash at local businesses. The project is just waiting on the completion of a new POS service.
BarberAd George and his son, Andy are at the barbershop, when George suddenly remembers he left his wallet at home. Luckily, Andy has some Bitcoin Cash and sends his dad some. George then tips his barber, and pays for both their haircuts. There will also be humorous elements within the script. 2 different edits - One 30 second, and a 1:30 edit. The ad is now complete except for the few CG elements. Once these are complete the promotional video will be released.
BCHTuts (Bitcoin Cash Tutorials) A series of 10 tutorials covering tools in the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem. Each will come as text and video. People who enjoy going at their own pace can read the written form and people who want to kick back can watch the video. Tutorials will be published on Yours.org and have a YouTube video embedded. This project is in progress.
Business Onboarding Info Pack A project to put together an info pack to get businesses started with Bitcoin Cash. The current plan is to include a pamphlet, some Bitcoin Cash Accepted Here" stickers, some leaflets aimed at users for the business to have available at the point-of-sale, and a paper wallet with small amount of Bitcoin Cash to play with. These packs will then be provided at meetups, events and anyone who needs them for onboarding businesses. The information pamphlet is complete and on order. The stickers are complete and on order. We now have the ability to use custom designs on cashaddress.org. We are now in the process of creating the leaflet for users. There was a hold up on this while we looked for a graphic designer.
BCH Netherlands Mini-Conference A one day conference in Amsterdam. During this conference we will discuss Bitcoin Cash from a social, technical and commercial point of view. Speakers from companies such as BTC.COM, Lokad and the Bitcoin Cash Fund will give you a unique perspective of what is going on with the Bitcoin Cash crypto currency. The event will be held on the roof of the TQ building (TQ Club) in the heart of Amsterdam. Interesting Talks by industry leaders including: - Remy - Introduction + Bitcoin Cash changes lives in Venezuela - Alejandro DeLaTorre (BTC.com) - What we need to do to make Bitcoin Cash successful - Justin Bons (Cyber Capital) - Bitcoin Cash; A store of value and the importance of it being a functional currency - Tobias Hoffmann (BTC.com) - A fork in the road: differences between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash - Joannes Vermorel (Lokad) - The scalability challenges of Bitcoin Cash - Paul Wasensteiner (The Bitcoin Cash Fund) - The BCF and the Path to a Billion Users
High Quality Bitcoin Cash Ad The concept is to create a high-quality Bitcoin Cash ad that is accessible to the masses and that we can use to heavily advertise Bitcoin Cash in video form (e.g. on youtube, vimeo, and social media). The ad would be similar in nature to this ad by Coca Cola. It would show people all around the world using Bitcoin Cash (and having a great life) in their every day lives. The tagline would be 'Bitcoin Cash - For everyone'. The idea is to show that Bitcoin Cash is a currency that is accessible to save and spend and receive by anyone and everyone in the world, and that by doing so people gain access to the global economy.
Bitcoin Cash Documentary A project to be produced simultaneously as the ad to maximise fund use. The documentary would target two key concepts:
1. Why and how does Bitcoin Cash exist.
2. Bitcoin Cash is used in a real economy by people all around the world, and these people need a good money system.
There would be a short motion graphic section in the documentary to explain the technical side of why/how Bitcoin Cash exists (e.g. block size, forks, on-chain scaling). This informational motion graphics section would also be suitable as a stand-alone video that can be used on social media to explain the situation. We are now actively looking for people around the world who use Bitcoin Cash, and the ability to use it impact their lives. If this is you, or you know someone like this, please get in touch.
Project 1B This project is a grand scheme to work towards on-boarding 1 billion people onto the Bitcoin Cash economy in developing countries. The concept is to manufacture and sell $5 feature phones in large quantities in various developing countries, and have these devices partly subsidised by various parties including charities and mobile networks. These phones would have a simple user and merchant Bitcoin Cash app pre-installed and would be loaded with a few dollars worth of Bitcoin Cash. For example, the phone cost = $5 and the phone has $4 of Bitcoin Cash on it. The apps will work with very low resources in a similar way to the wallets at yours.org.
Super Secret Website Project We have a big website project we are working on internally (Not the BCF website). We will have some big updates on this over the coming month.
We are currently in the process of setting up many more exciting projects!
TxHighway Visualize the difference in speed and scalability by comparing Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Core's transactions using our highway themed blockchain visualizer. Unlock a bonus sprite with each donation back to the Bitcoin Cash Fund and monitor your address. This project executed with massive success! Soon we hope to be working with the amazing team that built this site to produce a new educational tool.
What Is Bitcoin Cash? This is an internal BCF project to produce a video similar to the What is Bitcoin? video, but remade for Bitcoin Cash. The voiceover for the video is the amazing Kevan Brighting who did the voiceover for the award winning game Stanley Parable. The video will be roughly 1:30 minutes long and should be completed within 2-3 weeks. Work has started on the translations to Chinese, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and French. This should take another week or so.
Bitcoin Cash Sound Branding Internal BCF project to produce a branded sound for Bitcoin Cash payments. This sound would be used industry wide in apps when a bitcoin cash payment is sent or received. This sound would also be used in promotional video material to reinforce the brand. This sound would have a similar psychological effect as the macbook powering-on sound. This is now complete and can be heard at the end of the new 'What is Bitcoin Cash?' video. Please reach out to all the wallets that use Bitcoin Cash and show your support for the BCH sound branding.
Global Bitcoin Cash Meetups There is now a total of at least 34 Bitcoin Cash
The BCF will be sponsoring all these meetups and providing support to the organisers. It is amazing to see how rapidly they are popping up all over the globe! If you live in a major city and would like to start hosting Bitcoin Cash meetups, get in contact with us. Reach out to our official twitter account dedicated to coordinating with meetups @BCFmeetups!
New Team Members:
Lilla - Graphic Designer. Lilla is a highly talented graphic designer and she will be helping us produce lots of beautiful visual content and assets, including:
Custom paper wallets,
And lots more.
Based on feedback we have received from the community, we have streamlined the process of proposing projects to us, so that it requires as little effort as possible. You can access the new system at https://fpr.thebitcoincash.fund/. Let us know what you think.
We fully understand that as an organisation we need to be fully transparent about what we are doing, especially in the area of finances. We intend to have something more graphically presentable on our website once the second phase of development is complete, but for now you can see a list of all transactions we have made from the BCF donation address. You can also see this in this SPREADSHEET.
We need people with skills like this to volunteer some of their time for projects to bring awareness and adoption of Bitcoin Cash. If this is you get in contact with me, or come and talk to us at chat.thebitcoincash.fund. We can also budget some amount of funds for work, but priority will be given to people willing to do at least partially volunteer their time. If you don't have any of these skills, that doesn't mean we don't need your help. There are lots of other things that projects need help with (i.e. sending out stickers, handing out leaflets, writing education content etc.).
If anyone has any questions feel free to post them below and I will try to answer any that you have. Paul W. The Bitcoin Cash Fund.
The ARK Crypto Podcast is hosted by ARK.io Communications Specialist Justin Renken, and produced by ARK Chief Strategy Officer Matthew DC. In a weekly audio podcast, Justin keeps your finger on the pulse of all things ARK by discussing ARK concepts, interviewing other team members, sharing exclusive recordings of ARK presentations, giving news and status reports on ongoing ARK activities, and answering community-sourced questions about ARK. On occasion, the podcast even discusses other crypto projects as well. The ARK Crypto Podcast has a 30 minute runtime and new episodes are available every Friday on TheARKCryptoPodcast.com and iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Spotify, Castbox, and wherever great podcasts can be found. The podcast is a great place to start for learning about ARK while on the go.
Think your city needs a meetup? Take the first step and create a meetup page! There's lots of support available for anyone wanting to put together a meetup. @cryptartica on Twitter is sending out localized Bitcoin Cash flags to meetup groups. The Bitcoin Cash Fund is also offering support. I will send stickers to any meetup groups that want them.
