Just wanted to share an idea I had to promote Btcz.
I was recently going through my humble bundle purchases and realised I have tons of unused steam keys. I also bought a few games and amazed to see some great titles have fallen in price of late e.g. Resident Evil 7, £10, dishounered 2, £7 and so on.
Anyway it occurred to me that many miners are also gamers but there are not many gamers that are miners and the gaming community is HUGE and it is something we can try and tap in to. As anyone with as little as a gtx970 or gtx1060 can easily make a few Btcz by mining - even if it just for a few hours day.
So my idea then is for btcz community members to donate any spare steam keys they may have and then to market a btcz weekly steam key giveaway. A single entry will cost 50 btcz (or less) which will go to purchasing more steam key for the giveaway (or can go to community fund) and you can submit as many entries as you like. At the end of the week of all the entries, one will be picked at random as well as one random steam key from the ones we have. Maybe we can do three draws at a time, so the more entries you put in the more chance you have of getting multiple keys.
I am happy donate a bunch of steam keys as well as a AAA title a month. I am happy to drive this but I need members to create me some banners/posters etc (@FollowWings @VandarGR) and then market it on social media as much as possible. Using hash tags targeted at the gaming community not just the crypto community. Also we would need to explain that 50btcz is just a few hours of mining, hardly much. Maybe we could lower the entry to 10 btcz? That’s an hour mining on a 1060 at 280 sols. Also intro for gamers on how to mine and what pools to mine on.
We can Also explain how btcz can be bought. At current rate 10/50 btcz does not cost much. Spend a couple of pennies for the chance to get a game, I am sure people will go for that.
So The whole idea of this is to introduce gamers in to mining (or buying) btcz because they already have the hardware using the lure of getting some free games.
Maybe we could do a weekly giveaway and then one Big AAA latest release title per month, again if this takes off I am happy to buy and donate the key out of my own pocket.
So will need some help with images and marketing and we need to decide how we will do the actual giveaway. Maybe a live stream on YouTube where we pick out of a hat?
Thoughts on the above and additional ideas are welcome. Also would be great if someone else could help me drive this and then lets get the details down and do this thing.
