    [b]Bitcoin London with Ruthie[/b]

    “I’ve managed to find out the location of the London Bitcoin conference, what I would like to do, is head up to London on that day and out handout FTC packs / leaflets or such like, my initial idea was to have made up note like FTC currency featuring the FTC logo and little bit of information about FTC on there and some wording like “make FeatherCoin your digital currency of choice” with web address etc, and just hand it out?” - Ruth

    Ruth, please give us any additional details. Dream big and we’ll see what we can make happen.

    Hi had a mini brain wave and this is what I’ve come with,

    I’ve managed to find out the location of the London Bitcoin conference, what I would like to do, is head up to London on that day and out handout FTC packs / leaflets or such like, my initial idea was to have made up note like FTC currency featuring the FTC logo and little bit of information about FTC on there and some wording like “make FeatherCoin your digital currency of choice” with web address etc, and just hand it out? (ChrisJ, I believe this is your brain child).

    Lets get FTC out there in reality, I cant see a better place to get FeatherCoin seen. ‘Lets Get This’

    Any help with flyers etc would be great 🙂

    Thank you.

    I’m listening. You need some graphics (print quality) for us to prepare? If yes - I’d like you and others to agree on the content of this, and then we can make some drafts and choose the best one.

    P.S. how much time do we have if we are going to do this?

    Yes, thats right, - I had in mind something simple that would get attention, I understand, that some might have questions about the currency, so we may need a bullet point on the back…?

    The conference is on Tuesday July 2nd.

    We will need attention of the dev team as to content…?

    I did like what I saw in one of the competition entries for promo video, I believe it was the winning entry, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y6GPp1Lsio
    I like what we see in the background thought that could be a starting point…?

    I’ll ask Markus (PR Lead) to see if any of his team members would be willing to assist.

    Count me on this. Where is the conference? I have made a note in the diary. I think we should stamp a load of fiat bank notes with the feathercoin logo, maybe try and use a £50 note as a fancy paper wallet. Something artistic that makes a statement and will get people’s attention.

    how about something using the QR code from this thread?

    Hi Chris, I’ve sent you a PM with all the details 🙂 I think the bank note is a good idea, I like the circuitry as a background…?

    Thank you, I think that would great on a FTC note 😃


  • | Tip Ruthie

    I’ve sent Bushstar and justabitoftime an email, asking for their help with some technical details about FTC which we may need to include.

    This is a brilliant idea, sorry I have not paid attention sooner, couple of questions:

    1. Any ideas who will be attending? (expected mindset of clientele etc)
    2. Is this event advertised in non Bitcoin circles too?

    I do know actually 🙂 I’ll PM you the programme for the event, - just to note I’m going in coz it costs 250 quid.

    Actually, on second thoughts in case anyone else would like to know more about the conference, heres a link to the event -

    Thanks for the link. http://www.btclondon.com/

    This is what I was afraid of tbh, it might be a little like trying to sell sand to the Arabs, if you follow. :-\

    I’m no marketing expert though, so maybe justabit can advise further. 😎

    Also are you really paying £250 to go in :o

    My brother owns a screenprinting business. I could try and convince him to make a few t-shirts or items with the Feathercoin logo on so you guys are standing out. He can also cut vinyl stickers on a huge plotter cutter I’m told. Let me know if this sounds an idea as I can bet it will be a lot cheaper than most places.

    Okay, after talks with ChrisJ - he advises me that going to Canary Warf may not be such a good idea, as we probably would be moved along quite swiftly, I would’ve loved to have gone to the Bitcoin Conference to put the FTC brand out there but not at those prices to get in, its just not going to happen, all is not lost though there are lots of Bitcoin meet ups in London ‘Beer and Bitcoins’ which Im happy to go as they are free of charge 😃

    I have signed up to the Bitcoin meetup here: http://www.meetup.com/London-bitcoin-meetup/events/122553592/

    I’d recommend seeing if anyone in general forum would like to attend with you? I can sticky it now and then to get some attention.
