Deceptive, bitcoin is not a technology but only a specific implementation.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

I wouldn't call it deceptive but only inaccurate.  What would be the purpose of deceiving someone into believing a "new implementation of a current technology" is a "new technology"?  There is no intent to deceive.

It only mildly suffers from the creator's attempting to succinct.  There is no shame in that.

All nit-picking aside, its a good ad and I believe it succeeds in piquing the interest of those who've never heard of bitcoin.

I don't think it will be helpful since I don't think we need interest from those who haven't heard of it at the current point.

The last thing bitcoin needs is more consumers but it desperately need more producers.

Bitcoin can be considered also the name of the technology. In any case is just semantics.

Provocative, mysterious, and confident radio ads sell. The music is ominous and good. The word Bitcoin should have been repeated one more time and louder. "We use coins dotcom" was said too fast. It's confusing to use the term Bitcoin and weusecoins.com in the same spot. Otherwise, it's not bad. I can see this as the start of a Bitcoin community world-wide ad campaign.

As far as the accuracy, it's an ad ffs. It's not an article in IEEE.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I see this is airing in my market. I'm having a cocktail party during that slot. How rude would it be to wear an earbud at my own party?

Still does not make the ad deceptive.

I don't understand why more consumers is not good for Bitcoin.  You likely know what you're talking about so do you mind spelling it out for me?

What we need is actual trade, that is commerce between parties who contribute in a productive manner. Most people don't do this.

If I were to advertise bitcoin I would try to introduce it at trade fairs, talk to people who already have businesses and tell them how they can use it. Let them introduce their own consumerbase to a new method of payment.

The whole consumer/producer issue is a classic chicken & egg problem. It's impossible to get one without the other though, merchants need consumers to survive, and we need merchants for consumers to have something to consume (using Bitcoins). And of course we need software developers to create the tools. They are all needed.

If I had to choose which is needed more at the moment, I'd say consumers. Ads like these are very good for Bitcoin. What I've seen during the price decline of Bitcoin, and all the bad news, is that there are more and more merchants, more and more exchanges and more and more software in the Bitcoin world. Yet the actual commerce is growing slowly, to fuel that we need consumers more than anything else.

So both producers and consumers are definitely needed, but I disagree that we'd especially need producers right now. We see new products almost every day and the old ones are getting better.

Farmer's markets. The people that go there are idealistic about independence from big government/big corporations but are usually grounded enough to understand a bit about economics since they have successful businesses.

Yep, though bitcoin has to come a long way till over-the-counter purchases are convenient enough.

The whole consumer/producer issue is a classic chicken & egg problem. It's impossible to get one without the other though, merchants need consumers to survive, and we need merchants for consumers to have something to consume (using Bitcoins). And of course we need software developers to create the tools. They are all needed.

Yet the actual commerce is growing slowly, to fuel that we need consumers more than anything else.

So both producers and consumers are definitely needed, but I disagree that we'd especially need producers right now. We see new products almost every day and the old ones are getting better.

My point is that getting more producers is more effective.

I usually don't care for the method of payment if I want to buy something I look for the product first, and worry about how to pay for it later and necessarily convert currencies.
Using bitcoins may have ideological and political reasons, but those aren't necessarily the most important ones.

I had this obscure thought the other day, and this post reminded me of it.

What if a Bitcoiner set up a booth or table, if the case may be, at a farmer's market for the sole purpose of only excepting Bitcoin. Picture the juiciest peaches at this market, placed in small baskets resting on a handsome looking rustic table (made from barn wood), offered by a guy, or gal, donning an almost-to-fancy country get-up, with a sign overhead that reads "Bitcoin Only". When a customer walks up, most likely not reading the sign, they'll naturally ask how much, and are given the price in Bitcoin, thereupon starting the conversation. Afterwards, they're offered a free peach, since they probably can't buy any, which they pick out themselves, then handed a piece of literature outlining Bitcoin. They'll walk away with peach juice dripping down their chin and glancing over the literature, all the while thinking to themselves, "What the fuck just happened?" Someone approaches them and asked, "Where did you get that peach?" The answer may be, "Right over there from that cute gal, but...", and off that guy goes to the Bitcoin Peach Stand.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I've got all kinds of weird ideas in my head just dyin' to get out.

Bruno

PS: I liked the ad, albeit it's missing that something. The suggestions offered up seem to point to that something.

Yes. That might work.

Fuck! I spelled 'too' incorrectly. Blame in on the Basso Nova! Nice catch! The only reason I didn't use blah-blah as my example is because, quite frankly, most people don't go to farmer's markets to purchase them, coupled with the fact that they're not in season during spring and summer months here in the Northern Hemisphere. A better example, offered by you, would have been 'qui-gui' because they're always in season.  Wink
