Dear all, I felt the need to create a draft proposal for Grin marketing.
Grin is a beautiful project and it sometimes feels like the initial spark of enthusiasm we all felt gets buried in the process of technical discussions and diverse opinions. Let us all remember why we love Grin.
To help re-ignite (pun intended) this enthusiasm in both old and new Grin users, I though it would be good to list what makes Grin so great. The list below is intended for use in marketing such as medium blogs, Twitter (@Paouky) or use in youtube videos. Before going full blown out on the marketing maybe, the list below should be scrutinised by the community and we should have a mobile wallet which works with single step transactions. Single step transactions on a mobile wallet and a bit more positivism is all that stands in the way of Grin and Greatness in my opinion.
Below my list of ‘Seven things to love about Grin’ (Yes 7 was chosen on purpose):
- ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS FOR ALL. The mission statement of Grin goes back to the raison d’être of Bitcoin and the cypher punks who created it:
"Electronic transactions for all. Without censorship or restrictions. Grin is designed for the decades to come, not just tomorrow. Grin wants to be usable by everyone — regardless of borders, culture, skills or access.”
MOST SAFE TO USE. Transactions are made through communication between wallets. This interactivity makes it impossible to accidentally send GRIN to a non-existing address. Transactions therefore are like bank transfer, the system checks if the receiver exist, if not – the transaction will be cancelled just like a normal bank transfer would.
MOST SECURE. Grin stores transactions in a highly efficient way making the blockchain small enough to be stored on any mobile device. All incoming transactions will be validated against the full node you are running on your mobile phone.
MOST PRIVATE DAY TO DAY CRYPTO CURRENCY. Grin has a high level of privacy, what is best, this privacy comes at no additional cost to the user. It is mathematically impossible to deduce the amount of GRIN involved in a transaction.
SCHOCKINGLY LOW TRANSFER FEES. Considering Grin is a privacy coin, one would expect there to be a high transaction cost for GRIN, the opposite is the case. What is better, since Grin is and always will be created at the speed of 1 Grin/second, transfer fees will always be shockingly low since miners can always pay their costs from the supply of Grin. This ensures Grin will be the cheapest day to day privacy coin to use.
FAIR SUPPLY. Grin does not use an Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) or pre-mining to benefit investors or the developers. Grin is and always will be distributed Fairly at 1 Grin/second.
Therefore, Grin is equally rewarding early and late adopter. Mining fees encourage mining by regular users who only need a high end video card to earn and contribute in the mining process. Additionally, the linear supply of Grin wards of gold seekers and on the long run is expected to result in a high price stability.
COMMUNITY FUNDED. Grin development is one of the few crypto projects around, next to Bitcoin and Monero, that is purely depended on community funding. The community is involved in the development process and has a voice in where funds are spent, and which tasks are prioritized by the core developers.
I know there are many more things to love about Grin such as 8) being highly scalable, 9) being create by the great Lord Voldemort himself, but I felt these 7 things to love are what actually matters from a users perspective. Feel free to add, improve the text or comment:
Would it be nice to have a marketing folder on Github where list such as this one can be edited by all and folders with Memes, pictures and links to video’s can be compiled? Also having a marketing category on the forum would be nice, or should it be combined with the ‘Market’ category?
