I have translated the EOS Bees’ white paper early this month and discussed it with over two-thirds of the Chinese EDEN members in small group meetings. Brings some ideas to the table.
All those listed below, are not speaking for all Chinese members of EDEN, nor does it fully represent my personal preference. Only for references and discussion purposes.
About promotion strategy
Prefer to focus on promote projects on EOS.
A user’s decision to join a blockchain ecosystem is primarily determined by the abundance, interest, and wealth effect of the projects on this chain. Users cannot truly be part of EOS ecosystem unless they use and enjoy the Dapps or Projects. (We are not talking about developers and investors here.) It would be better, then, if we spent our time improving the EOS-Projects marketing to allow users to find projects easier, find ones that meet their needs, and use them.
Preparation for promotion
- Guidance for onboard users
We have to make it easier to onboard users, teach them how to use EOS, direct them to the DApps or Projects that suit their needs, help them enjoy EOS.
Some projects are providing such services or plan to do so. For instance. EOS user support by @rroland1 Chinese community also does the same, like Yoo’s Channel, JBB.ONE’s Guides…etc
Enhance user support may be a way to significantly increase promotion conversion rates. Because it reduces the entry barriers for onboard users.
- Project library
All good projects on EOS should be listed and introduced. To make it easier for users to discover and experience.
- EOS-related authoritative media
Since EOS doesn’t really have an official media. We need some media that truly represent the voice of EOS and EOS community. Deliver timely and accurate EOS-related news while maintaining a positive attitude.
Especially, for Chinese community, this is urgently needed.
As of now, mainstream Chinese blockchain media rarely report positive news about EOS; while the Chinese media under the BPs have low update frequency, terrible translation quality – filled with content inaccuracies, errors, and omissions.
Actually many users in the Chinese community create content spontaneously. The only thing left for us to do: recruit these people, organize, and arrange the content they create. So it is possible to create and disseminate information effectively and accurately with a low budget.
About distribution and assessment
A task-based distribution is more reliable and effective than based on people.
leaders (queen, princess or worker) post tasks → bees accept tasks → mission accomplished → claim reward (after proof of bee)
In addition, the token and task systems were discussed as practical solutions. Pay a one-time development fee to reduce daily management costs and provide more transparency. Take a look if you’re interested. For now, it’s just a draft, and only in Chinese.
