Community is active but in Slack...

If you have an active thing in Slack great, but if it is producing anything of worth then there should be no problem cross posting the good stuff (daily if not hourly).  Otherwise all you real have is a closed off clique not a community.

Slack.com "Slack is a platform for team communication: everything in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go."


Btw. Can anyone be invited into Zetacoin Slack group?

how about collecting donations from the community and organising a little airdrop in africa? A little money can go a long way there.
Investors will love to see it

That's an interesting idea.  If the big bags could get some effective air drop organized in Africa.  They'd need on ground coordinators and would need some sms app ... imagine many Africans have mobile phones but few have smart phones.  Still zet could really be effective as it is cheap (per unit) and fast (send spend).

i don't know if they can do it on the ground. Don't know if the capacities are there. Haven't been in that community since they are really hard to find  Roll Eyes

From the look everyone is pretty lazy.
So the lazy version would be to do it online. There is enough africans in cities with internet connection. An sms-app is a must though. On ground coordination? Let's be realistic: they don't get their lazy white asses to africa but many africans in the bigger cities can be reached via the internet.
Can even be done without the sms-app. What it needs is a faucet that gives out a few coins but only to african IP's. As far as i know not many VPN providers offer africa located VPN's so this is really easy to do an airdrop for all of africa even without getting ID from people. Just set up a faucet that only gives coins to african IP's and only once per IP. Pretty easy, isn't it?

1 to 5 coins per person. Get 10k or 20k donated/collected from the bagholders and you can give out thousands of airdrops. People down there earn in some regions like 30 cent to 1$ a day ... if you give them coins worth 10 cents or 20 cents with a drop it'll be worth for them to care about that.

I mean: before you dump it down to the shitcoins and burry it this is maybe a better way to compensate the weakness of this team.

Gustav , your idea is actually very good:

Check this for instance: http://vpnmaps.com/africa-vpn/ - there are indeed VPNs there too, but probably there just aren't enough and the faucet can be limited to give to a single IP only once a day... so they can't abuse that too much

Another question would be: how to advertise it there. How to let people know.

Another question: how can they exchange it for a currency they can use? Many will want to, but it's either incredibly hard to do from there, or it at least needs to be explained in a very understandable fashion. Maybe on the same website the faucet will be on.

limit to one claim per IP will help distribute better because you probably don't want single people claim as much as they can in short time but would prefer to reach more people in longer time. So i wouldn't even let the same IP claim twice. But then there is still the problem with non-static ip's where people could just restart their router to get new IP. I'm not so techie but i am sure there could be a solution found to get it as fairly distributed as possible.
Would also be possible to make the payout small enough so it won't be an issue if people claim more often.
I don't think the VPN's are a big problem.

how to advertise is the good question. Maybe try to find out what young people in africa like to consume on the net and try to get a report about ZET on those outlets or some kind of webbanners. In africa everything is very cheap. Advertising should be relatively cheap aswell.
I think radio is big there.

How to exchange for them? I have checked localbitcoin.com and there are people buying and selling bitcoin in the capital cities throughout africa.
But why would they exchange these small amounts back? They could just start using it as currency right away (like it is intended). I think all it needs is that SMS-app for old phones and africa is very likely to adopt crypto way faster than any other region would. Good tutorials/introductions for beginners and explanations what it is and how to use and safely store private keys and so on is where it's at. People in africa speak english (or french) too in most regions so all that is really not hard to do. Reaching peoples in cities around africa should really be pretty easy if you have a small budget for ads and a dedicated team that could do these tutorials - which you should both have.

A website with faucet and tutorials and then an intelligent advertisement campaign on pages that are used often by young africans (or popular radioshows) could potentially lead to very fast adoption especially in countries with the high inflation.
As a second step to solve the problem of exchange maybe look for people to work with on the ground - you don't even need to travel there. It is actually business for people to make an exchange service. New jobs would be created. Moneychangers so to speak. I imagine little shops could do that (possibly the internetcafes). Buy and sell btc and zet for a small margin is business for anyone who understands it and runs it. If you look for helping the startups with expertise and maybe a little headstart with a few coins (if affordable and makes sense) i think it can really quickly bloom there.
Possibly offer a helping hand for the first money exchangers on the website and maybe even skype tech-support for them. Since it is business it should be growing almost on its own. Infrastructure can emerge quickly if it is businessopportunity with profit for people which it can be.
It's really almost too easy and effortless.  Wink
All it takes is manage to reach out to the population. News about an airdrop-style initiative will also spread fast because these people tend to communicate more with each other than westerners do. News of free money spread quick among people, no worries.  Cheesy
I think the basic question is: how to effectively reach the (young) people of africa
getting coins in their hands is the smallest issue.

There is no sense in seeking to negotiate deals with banks or institutions. You'd need to go straight to the population imo.

- get the word out
- get it distributed to people
- help the moneychangers to startup
- make it easy to use and accessible for them

Adoption will follow quickly.
For all that to work you don't even need to leave the house with your lazy white asses Wink (little joke, nothing personal)
It's just writing emails and doing phonecalls and of course providing website, techsupport and apps.

Excellent ideas, gustav

I'm reading up on how to set up a Faucet: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=333748.0

(alternatively, why not use already existing faucets? http://faucet.securepayment.cc/zet/ for instance ... and just build a website around them? )

the task here is not to build a faucet really...

it's more about marketing and consumer education, targeted at an African audience
