No matter how big or small, every magazine lives or dies by its readership (or deep pocketed propaganda spewing backers). From day one I have wanted this to be an organically grown magazine that not only reflects what the community wants, but also focuses on the future health of the digital currency and related issues as well.

We'll never be able to make everyone happy, but there are more elements to consider in representing a project like Bitcoin than just keeping some people on a forum happy.

  • How outsiders perceive Bitcoin
  • How outsiders perceive Bitcoiners
  • How outsiders perceive Bitcoin's agenda
  • How leading news sources perceive the credibility of the magazine
  • How businessmen interested in investing in the bitcoin economy see the Bitcoin economy

Speaking strictly for profits and losses, running this niche magazine for the benefit of Bitcoiners only would be suicide and a non-starter. I bet we'd never hit 10,000 issues a month inside the Bitcoin community alone. Outside however, we could do 50,000 with proper marketing. For the first time in Bitcoin's history, it has something credible, legitimate and proper speaking for it, something that truly seeks the opinions of its supporters. Something like that can never be limited to just a forum full of grumpy burned investors or childish script kiddies.

Since this forum is still virtually unknown, full of garbage, and more or less difficult to deal with for the average sane person, I've created a subreddit for the magazine. I'm not even a fan of reddit, but what works, works. From now on, if you have any issues with the magazine's quality, content, direction, editorials, faculty, representation of Bitcoin, etc, please discuss it there in depth. For those of you who are just too fucking lazy, don't complain when your voice isn't heard.

I started the ball rolling with the first post. Don't ever let it be said I didn't try to keep the community involved. (I also tip at restaurants)

EDIT: To some this post might come off a bit harsh, but it's intended to just be honest. I support a great majority of initiatives that have started from this forum, but I do not think this forum is "bitcoin" nor do I want to allow Bitcoin and all related initiatives to be held back by the shortcomings of the forum.

Bitcoin definitely needs more awareness, which I think a magazine, like the one your pushing, can offer.

I don't Facebook, Tweet, or Reddit, because too many skript kiddies and webgovagent use those services. Cheesy
And without all of the skript kiddies, who else will there be to take the fall for the true evil hacker cabal.  Tongue

Good luck with the magazine though.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.
