Trekcon Updates - Blog
« on: May 09, 2014, 06:32:14 pm »

** Update 1 - Learning Period -- Learning to Pitch to Non-Crypto Enthusiasts - 1:30pm **

It's one thing to be at a Bitcoin conference, it's another to talk to people that might not even be familiar with Bitcoin. We're learning so much about what works and what doesn't. As we start to grow, we feel it will become absolutely essential to nail these talking points down. Believe me, they don't want to hear about blockchains or decentralization.

For those who knocked the Songs of Love charity drive, I'd ask you to reconsider your stance on the $5k community success. Talking about the difference in fees between paying a charity in Nxt vs paying with credit cards is a slam dunk. This is a real world use that resonates with people.

Everything is going great, we're ready for the 5pm rush in a few hours. It's really wild sitting next to all the Star Trek celebs... I'm not a fan boy by any means, but just fun to see so many familiar faces.  Tomorrow should be insane on attendance, we're scheduled for Sat and Sun for Nxt talks.

** Update 2 - 4:55pm **

We're finding it much easier to getting businesses excited about Nxt than individuals. The fee structure and ability to add a new client base are extremely appealing. Almost every business we've talked to wants to talk more about it, both at the presentation yesterday and at Trekcon today. I'm feeling good about our talking points in that area.

As for individuals outside IT or hardcore crypto, it's services such as the game development that's happening in the community. The more people we speak to, the more we find this to be true.  One hook (as I mentioned in the previous post) is charity, WU fees and crowd funding. In our marketing, we might want to customize 4 different approaches:

- Libertarian/Decentralization
- IT / Hardcore Crypto
- Business
- Casual User

By time Sunday night comes along, we should have a much better idea.

** Update 3 - 5:25pm **

I forgot to mention this nugget in the last update. As much as we talk about not comparing ourselves with Bitcoin, it's a great lead-in.

"Hey, have you heard about Bitcoin?"

That allows us to gauge their comfort level with crypto as well as any misconceptions.  After that statement, we can take it in all types of directions with NXT.

** Update 4 - 9:10am **

Based on a conversation I had this morning on FB, I need to make some adjustments to my talk this afternoon.  Just an FYI, I want to personally thank Nikel for his hard work and substantial investment into Trekcon.  It's because of him that we have the booth along with all the additional exposure. He'll never come out and say it, so I'm saying it for him!

We're not only opening up a new market to Nxt, but crypto in general.. describing a few key coins and how Nxt falls into that picture. As I mentioned in previous threads, I have talks scheduled over the next 2 months. The only major difference I'm making is focusing strictly on the Bitcoin to NXT transition. +Today is when all the big talks and parties happen at Trekcon. We expect the most foot traffic this afternoon... round 2, here we come!!  Thanks to everyone following.


** 10:18 am **

The talk is at 2pm titled, "Next Generation of Digital Currency - learn about where digital currency is going!".  I don't expect to flood the seats, that's ok. This video will be sent to the Chamber of Commerce as well as the local IT organizations after editing. We want to use this as a springboard for local businesses to consider using crypto.  Once that is complete, we'll move to the CIS/CS departments of all the local colleges. We want to get in front of their students. I've taught at 2 of the schools, I'm hoping to utilize some of those connections.  Ok, once that is complete, we'll head to other cities and go from there. We're taking a grassroots approach to adoption.

** Update 5 - 1:10pm **

As we start to unwind the booth, I want to thank CoinTropolis Nikel and Josh for spending their entire weekend helping to spread the word about NXT.  Between the Thursday conference we attended and Trekcon (along with the Bitcoin Conference Nikel and I attended), we feel we have a solid pulse on what needs to happen to move Nxt to another level.  I'm taking the next 72-96 hours off, when I get back, I'll start working on an overall summary with action items.

I apologize, the Amsterdam guys will tell you we've been knee deep in follow-ups. I haven't forgotten about this one!

Thanks. So if you will be doing this, I am curious about the press coverage - if there were also published any news etc + if we have any photo/video materials that could be used for other promotion. (I watched just some bad-sound-quality video :D )
