The Bitcoin Sun is excited to announce that we are hiring subeditors.
There are 5 positions available at 10 BTC per week. The Bitcoin Sun understands that this rate is very low; we will be increasing this rate if can find advertisements to run along with the content.
It is up to the editor how he/she wishes to spend the Bitcoin; hiring journalists or outsourcing work is encouraged, of course the subeditors are encouraged to form a team for important pieces.
All of the work is contract based. You will be required to submit 1500 to 3000 words over 3 to 6 articles by every Friday. With vector graphics/ high resolution pictures.
The Bitcoin Sun will (plans to) publish online every Monday
There are 5 portfolios available: (very loosely defined here, will be refined in the future)
Bitcoin Development – Bitcoin Clients, New Features, Developer Interviews etc…
Supporting Technologies – Open Transactions, Ripple, NameCoin, Freenet, Tor and other technologies
Trading – MtGox coverage, new payment methods, Best Practices Guides, analysing trends and future changes of the Trading Economy.
Business – Interesting new Business Ventures, Challenges and Issues.
Community – Such as controversial issues, talking to new members, focusing on creating a dialogue between the bitcoin community and The Bitcoin Sun
More subeditors will be hired in the future if this publication proves to be successful.
The Bitcoin Sun is also taking advertisements, prices start @ 5 BTC (1/10 page) to 50 BTC (Full Page). Special advertisements and ongoing rates can be negotiated. (please PM/ email me)
Because The Bitcoin Sun is new a new venture in the bitcoin community we will be using ClearCoin for all our transaction until our trust has been established.
The application process will be public: Please post in this thread. We will interview each candidate (via email) and announce the subeditors in one week.
