I'm not the most amazing graphic designer, but I am sure I can come up with something acceptable. Even though I read the PDF, I don't feel most investors will sink that much time into reading it. Personally, I think the Comparisons are top notch and the writer CLEARLY knows their stuff... but that's the problem... most of this is too complex for the masses.  I've read every this entire PDF and I still can't explain it as well as some of the folks on this messageboard.
An infographic that consolidates info into an easily digestible format will draw people in a lot easier. Vertcoin has an infographic comparing VTC, LTC and BTC and I feel some of VTC's recent success is due to this infographic.  It's simple and contains a lot of valuable info.    The PDF is 70 pages and the first few are nothing special.   We live in a instragram society where it has to be summed up in 10 words or less.  We can't fight that.

Can anyone help me take the amazing info in this PDF and compartmentalize it like in the above infographic? I'd be happy to sink some time via chat or something to put something out there we all can distribute to different subreddits / facebook groups.  Hell, I'll even donate crypto to someone who can do it so I can get this infographic created. 

Ardor is an amazing product, but just like NXT, the only people that REALLY know just how amazing it is that are the people who are crypto programming geniuses that built it. The masses simply see marketing, which is why everyone is excited about LISK.

I agree these is a very big issue, regarding marketing Nxt 1.0 (Single BlockChain) and Nxt 2.0(ARDR, Multiple Blockcahin)

I have been reading and viewing videos, regarding nxt for the last month and a half. and there is a big problem in nxt 1.0 and nxt 20 (ardr) marketing.

NXT community needs to send a message that nxt 1.0 is going to be alive, and nxt 2.0 (ardr) has extra funtionability that not every body may need, and that all the improvements that are going to be made on nxt 2.0 (ARDR) that do are not reltated with the multiple blockchain are going to be carry on to nxt 1.0.

So nxt 1.0 is continually going to be upgrated.

They are creating a group called NXT & ARDR group wich I beleive is a big mistake. When NXT started not been NXT? if version 1.0 and 2.0 (ARDR) are going to be treated as one family of products.

Really I just need for someone who can help throw some ideas out there that designers could get started on.   Trying to parse down the comparison documents into a side-by-side chart or a "checkmark box" format to show what ardor can do and the competition doesn't is what we need.   

If anyone has a metaphor for explaining some of the more complex aspects of Ardor, like bundling, child chains, security, pruning, etc... anything that could be graphically visualized, it will go a LONG way.

I can read that whole PDF and I know by reading it that it makes a good case for ardor, but there's no way i could explain it to my mom.  and that's what we need an infographic to do.   Explain how revolutionary Ardor is to our moms in a way they understand.

* my mom pays for on demand cable access but cannot figure out how to use it.  true story.  and here i am involved with NXT.

Why is this a mistake? It's also not being created by Jelurida, but by the Nxt Foundation, which was a community-created organization. If you're complaining about Ardor existing as a separate product, don't blame an initiative that was started in October this year. The Nxt Foundation already had enough problems of people thinking that it was the group of developers, so when renaming it was needed, might as well add Ardor too.

Re: Infographics

Yes, I hope it gets worked on as well. Marketing to a non-ideal target market might not always be the best way though. Servers can be used without people knowing about how it works, but people care about what's built on top of it. Having an infographic set for businesses and then for regular users is a good thing for community building, but it's probably best to target the crypto community first since they would already have an understanding about blockchain. Ardor and Nxt are not like Bitcoin where its primary purpose is a currency, which everyone understands. They are more about utilizing blockchain technology for use cases, and some of those use cases are going to be the ones that those people will like.

I mean the mistake is the name not the group. the name of the group should has been:

Nxt 2.0 (Ardr) Group or

Nxt 1.0 & 2.0 (ARDR) Group

Nxt 2.0 (Ardr) Group or

Nxt 1.0 & 2.0 (ARDR) Group

I disagree. Those names do not work well especially since there is a parenthesis. Nxt 2.0 Group would mean that it only represents Nxt 2.0. The second example doesn't flow well. Nxt is also not really 1.0 as it's now 1.11.10.

Also, there has been a big push to avoid calling it Nxt 2.0 because calling something 2.0 usually means that 1.0 is obsolete, which in this scenario isn't going to be the case for Nxt unlike other software products where there is something "2.0" coming out. That's why it's just being called Ardor. It's another product. Saying that 2.0 exists but that 1.0 is not obsolete is even more confusing given how version numbering works with software development.

If you can think of a better name, feel free to suggest it to whoever the new Director would be since if they would like to change it later after the interim period, it's up to them. You can also start a poll on the forum to see what people think.

Good observations marenkar,

name fixed! :-)

Nxt SBC 1.0 & 2.0 ARDR MBC Group

SBC= Single BlockChain
MBC = Multiple BlockChain

I will suggest to the new director, and start a poll on the forum, later on,

thanks a lot.

No problem.

But sorry, I think the new name you are suggesting is too long and complicated. It will just confuse users even more.

I still don't see what's wrong with the Ardor and Nxt Group. Ardor and Nxt are two separate blockchains. They are developed by Jelurida. Yes they are both similar in terms of some features, but they are different products. Think of it like the iPhone and the iPad.

Calling it 1.0 vs 2.0 has caused numerous instances of confusion in the past when it was called such. Having SMC and MBC is not intuitive at all and completely unnecessary, in my opinion.

Having it as ARDR instead of Ardor is also not good. It's a group of the platform, not the coin.

Anyway, we're getting off topic. Please start a new one if you would like to engage further. I think we're all onboard with infographics.
