PIVX Foundation: able to KYC to receive

NOTE: Major change to past work will include stepping back from 3 key areas I historically have volunteered in. 1. social media management (researching, vetting intel, crafting text, posting, engaging on socials, etc) 2. website management and 3. Ambassador support, which has been funded but not been treasury funded for some time. I spend a lot of hours helping Ambassadors and even personally sending PIV to help in lieu of no funding. People need to step up and fill those roles as volunteers or governance needs to see the value and vote yes ongoing. These 3 roles alone take up more time than I spend on creative content. Although I give above and beyond there as well.

The Rhubarbarians (RhubarbMedia.ca) are presenting this new proposal to again support the creative design needed for announcements, events, web updates, for PIVX.

This should not be seen as "Marketing" to its full extent. We still have no main social media management team, no Public Relations team, no strategic marketing team.
We are following the original strategy to push out content around the brand, education, tech, community and adoption and offer as much volunteer support as we can during this period.
See the previous proposal posts for reports but this last round we pushed out hundreds of unique items including design for announcements, community, adoption, education, articles, blog posts.

In addition, we will try come up with some campaign creative to fill in the gaps between announcements and updates if time allows, but this too would be beyond scope and volunteer as it's been for the past year.
These will include, but not be limited to sponsorship marketing, contests, General PIVX highlight creative, regional creative marketing support for other language groups and 3rd party associations.

At the current price and hours we spend, we are working at a dramatic loss each month, but we're not asking for an increase in PIV.
It will not get us to what we need each month, but we don't want to burden the treasury as there are other core projects needed some level of funding as well.
We get inundated by requests every week and this increase will go to help cover this to some level.

We will also continue to offer some skin-in-the-game, offering hours above and beyond the budgeted hours in the budget.
Typical designs work includes:
  • Announcements (Tech, exchanges, community, events, etc)
  • Web graphics updates (Main announcements, Ambassadors, PIVXplaces, PIVXSports, etc)
  • Support of Alliance needs
  • Campaign Creative as time allows
  • Project management
What we are dropping this round is the management of social media. Writing copy, posting and engaging on social as we have. We estimated spending more time on this element than actually designing and with zero compensation. We're finding it's stealing time for other paid work and without a healthy Rhubarb Team, we cannot do our main role as creative content creators. We hope others will step up and take on social media management as well as writing posts.

This is on top of all the Ambassador work were doing (previously separately funded but not funded the last few rounds from the treasury) for local initiatives, meetups and larger event support for events like Seoul, Korea, Bogata Colombia, and Brasil, Venezuala, etc
We’ve been serving the PIVX brand and team since Dec 2016. We’ve stuck with it through good and bad times. We’ve offered help even when budgets were not paid out for various reasons and invested in Exchange additions and other Support needs along the way, donating thousands. Thanks!
With much Purple Love,
Chad Ballantyne and Design Team

Looks like we passed, but no funds left... if anyone would like to support the ongoing creative work, please consider donating to DTyGsy4VC784yrW5x5wR9rEw5cv1wtQJ7K
We at least need 3000P per month to get close to breaking even with all I do. Thanks!!
