Looking at threads from the last months there are a lot of doubts whether SocialX will eventually become a real thing or if its just a word that has been used to make buzz. People also criticised that a whitepaper was announced months ago but was never filed. You don´t need to comment that this is due to the fact that developers are working on Reddcoin in their spare time, I know that, but still I think we may agree that from a marketing perspective this is a problem when spreading the word.
I opened this thread to brainstorm strategies to create both awareness and trust into the project. One very vague idea I had was streaming developers at work. I saw this months ago when I got into cryptocurrencies with Cloakcoin. Today the whole project crashed because the (large) developing team fell apart, but they had some good ideas. In the beginning they posted videos about what they did. It wasn´t really a lot, they didn´t even had sound on, click here, but still those videos made people aware of progress and updated on what is currently done outside of their normal forums. @tralf posted a video of the browser wallet in the same style. However, I don´t believe this needs to be done with “finished products” or beta versions, it would probably also work with just showing work on the milestones.
This wouldn´t need much more than setting up a screen recorder and then recording about 5-10 minutes of work. Recording doesn´t take a lot of time, editing and publishing does. This work can be distributed within the community. I can do most of the video editing needed. Someone with a better sound equiptment could give a short update about what was done. To do this we don´t need more than a few lines from the corresponding developer and someone with some technical background can write a script.
If we manage to do this regularly (thinking about 14 days) on a scheduled time, this will give people trust and at the same time we can use the videos to create awareness.
But yes, this is only one idea and you may have better ones. Feel free to add your thoughts.
