[quote=“JustaBitofTime, post:6, topic:515”][quote=“MeBeingAwesome, post:5, topic:515”][quote=“JustaBitofTime, post:4, topic:515”]This is a fantastic idea. If we could put it together with community consensus, we could launch a small press release as well next week. In addition, I’d like to have a Peercoin giveaway to celebrate.
- I’m willing to donate some coin
- It could be centered around something to do with the exchange
- The amount doesn’t need to be big, just something we can do to show how serious we are about pushing the coin
Establishing a Trusted Partner Exchange program would likely require a bit of work. There would need to be objective criteria put in place for exchange participation, along with governance mechanisms in place to oversee making the decision to revoke the TPE designation from an exchange.
I could see a modified PPC logo also being very useful that selected exchanges could display on their site. Very abstract, but in Canada we have a “Top 100 Employers” competition each year, and winning companies often put this circular seal on their website. Having a “Trusted Partner Exchange” logo with PPC in the middle would be cool.
I would actually argue against donating our own PPC to this. Satoshis Vault is clearly craving publicity, AND they have their own server farms operating with BFL equipment. Ask if they could do a 100-500 PPC giveaway. Costs them $30-$200 (nothing), and they get the privilege of having an “official exchange” logo (which immediately gives them credibility).
I would also suggest to SV that they tie the giveaway to a marketing initiative to generate a database of consumer info. ie. in order to receive the 1PPC free, the customer needs to sign up for a mailing list or provide some personal info.[/quote]
I like this… I like it a lot. So if they do plan on adding it Monday, what is the short term plan? Obviously we’ll want to put out some type of mini release to announce we’re on their exchange, we’re excited about the opportunity to be on a Canadian exchange, traded against the other 2 major currencies (that’s a big deal for branding) and maybe mention a TPE program in the works (if we get community consensus)? This is your babiee, you tell me how I can assist.[/quote]
Hmm…okay, here’s a short-term plan (edited for irritant/Jimmy/d5000 suggestions):
- SatoshisVault goes live Monday.
1a. JBT grants them “Official Canadian PPC Exchange” rights,“Trusted Partner Exchange” status and in exchange they do a small PPC giveaway. JBT mentions to them that they can very quickly develop an internal marketing list by tying the giveaway to contact information. Also SV can reference that they are the first TPE of Peercoin in internal marketing messaging.
- JBT - Communicate to them that we are working on a “Trusted Partner Exchange” logo that they will be able to display on their website to show credibility. Plan to have it created in the next week or two.
2a. Sentinelrv and cshelswell coordinate to create a “Top 100 Employers” themed logo for “Trusted Partner Exchange” program. Ideally it should look official, solid, and trustworthy. I can provide branding advice to them if they would like it.
2b. I begin working on internal governance mechanisms for deciding who gets to be a TPE, who gets to revoke the rights, and what criteria we should use in giving/removing that privilege from exchanges.
Does this work short term?
