    [b]May 3rd - 4:43am eastern - Update[/b]

    • Bushstar reviewed the script
    • The script was sent to the voice-over talent
    • A deliverable should be in my hands in the next 36 hours
    • I will post it as soon as it’s in my hands

    ====================

    I’d like to do a ‘What is Feathercoin’ similar to the spirit of this Bitcoin video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um63OQz3bjo

    I would be willing to pay for the production. I have a good voice-over person), I would just need the community to fill in the pieces:

    1. Script
    2. Types of images being used for the script
    3. Any other details needed

    This is important. For the non-techy people, the idea is to produce quick hitting ‘Look me up’ type videos. I can see us doing multiple 45 sec type spots.

    ==========

    [b]Draft 2: Goal 45 seconds - 1 minute [/b]

    I would be willing to pay for the production (could probably do it for like $50-$60 w/ revisions… I have a good voice-over person), I would just need the community to fill in the pieces:

    1. Script
    2. Types of images being used for the script
    3. Any other details needed

    This is important. For the non-techy people, I want to be able to send them to a link that’s under 2 minutes that makes sense to them. My mom should be able to watch it and go “Oh, I get it”.

    Here’s the person I plan to use:

    I figure it’ll run around $120.00 - $150.00 (90 min, professional voice-over and custom animations). If you feel like donating anything to the project, feel free to drop me a PM.

    Topics:

    1. What is Feathercoin
    2. Digital Currency
    3. Compare to Western Union / Money Gram
    4. Bank Fees
    5. Provable
    6. Where it’s heading
    7. Great idea for small businesses
    8. Exchanges
    9. Mining

    I know quite a few of these topics overlap the ‘What is Bitcoin’. We can do our own spin while including all the critical information.

    When I get home, I’ll generate a new addy so we can track any donations coming in. If anyone wants to take over this project, I’d be more than happy to step aside. 🙂 If not, I’ll take the advice of the community and help develop something awesome.


  • | Tip UKMark

    I’m in, if only to keep an eye on you and the Devs! 😉

    Yup I think this is what is needed, tbh I don’t really care which currency succeeds, but I’ll back the one that seems to be moving in the directions that others aren’t or can’t.
    If folk are gonna want to accept this thing (crypto-currency, it needs - liquidity with stability, great marketing and be Grandma user friendly, along with obvious community support & belief.

    Here is a list of ideas I put together to help push this project forward:

    1. What is Feathercoin?

    • Digital currency sent from person to person instantly over the internet
    • Uses a digital wallet downloaded to your computer; simple to use
    • Similar to Moneygram/Western Union without all of the fees
    • Briefly explain how this is secure using strong encryption
    • Transaction are put into the block chain
      2. Where it came from
    • Forked from Litecoin (explain why)
    • Uses Scrypt (greater protection from ASICS;quickly explain what an ASIC is)
      3. Whats all the fuss
    • No coin launch has had as much excitement and development behind it
    • Minimal transaction fees
    • Transactions are nore reversible - can be searched in the blockchain to verify
    • Decentralized; No banks or regulations - open to anyone and everyone
    • Open source - nothing to hide
    • Greater quantity for day to day transactoins(think of bitcoin like gold, rare; explain advantage)
      4. Explain place in the market
    • Perfect for day to day transactions(further explained)
    • Faster transaction times (Do we know how much fater?(LTC = 2.5 MIN); explain how this will appeal to businesses)
    • Business can move away from high fees charged by banks/credit card companies
    • With an active development community, new features will always be added to enhance the coin
      5. Show how to learn more and download (Mabye have link where all of this information can be found)
    • feathercoinpayitforward initiative to spread the word
    • Check for meetups in your area (when meetups become available/existing meetups show interest in feathercoin)
    • exchanges to purchase coin
    • Link to document of how-to’s(Feathercoin Wiki)
    • encourage to join the revolution in digital currency

    Feel free to hold off until we have a good Scope of Work document.


  • | Tip justabitoftime

    As I’m looking over the outline, I’m thinking it could be broken down into 2 different videos. All the information is perfect, I’d just recommend stirring up interest (under 90 seconds) for the first video and then getting into more detail on the second.

    Thoughts?

    If so, what parts would we want for part 1?

    This forum mentioned! Pointless writing all this stuff if no-one is reading it.
    Will send a small 0.35BTC donation now.


  • | Tip justabitoftime

    I’ve been making an aggressive attempt at bring more FTC community members over to the official board. I trust we’ll start seeing more involvement over the next few weeks. Thank you for the donation, received.

    I plan on playing around with the script in the next 48 hours and posting ideas as they come in. By all means, please add/remote whatever you guys feel is relevant.

    ^^ Maybe also mention where we are up to already (IN SUCH A SHORT TIME) IE: How many exchanges there are so far, and also mention the community support and general acceptance, also what e-commerce is already available (Blackjack & lotto, any others?) Anymore planned for the immediate future? Etc, etc…

    I’d let this thread roll for a couple more days and see what further input comes along from the community, if none, then get it made ASAP!!! 😎

    Noted. I’m having someone else hand me their script ideas later today.

    1. I’ll share them here after work
    2. I’ll add in your suggestions
    3. I’ll wait a few days for all the feedback to come in

    As Feathercoin gets more and more popular, I expect to see more feedback in the forums on these projects. Time for all of us to lead by example. 🙂

    [b]Draft 1: Goal 1min - 1min15sec[/b]

    Feathercoin is a digital global currency that allows you to have complete control over how you spend your money. No banks, no absorbent fees. The coins are stored on YOUR computer in a digital wallet.

    Unlike traditional methods such as:

    • Credit Cards

    • Western Union

    • Wire transfers

    The fees are only a fraction of the cost and can be completed with a few clicks of the mouse. It’s relatively anonymous, fast, costs almost nothing to transfer to people or merchants

    What can you do with Feathercoin? You can:

    •      Send money to your friend in Tokoyo at 3am  
      
    •      Send a donation to your favorite website  
      
    •      Save it as an investment like gold or silver  
      
    •      Even purchase a lottery ticket  
      
    •      More ways to use your coins are added everyday  
      

    Fast… Safe… Affordable

    Feathercoin’s growth is nothing short of amazing. Full community support, traded on multiple exchanges and already gaining acceptance within the online business community.

    Ok guys, please let me know what you like and dislike. I need feedback by 12:01a tomorrow. I plan to submit this document to a fearless leader sometime early in the morning … providing no major changes, onto the animators, voice-over and musicians later that afternoon.

    Just spoke to the voice-over guy and also a marketing consultant:

    1. 200+ words will push past 3 minutes
    2. Too much to absorb, you want just enough to get them to click the link

    Revision 2:

    Feathercoin is the next generation digital global currency designed for the Internet.

    Unlike traditional payment methods, Feathercoin transactions cost next to nothing.

    What can you do with Feathercoin? You can:

    With explosive community support, Feathercoin applications are endless.
