(I, Chad, am submitting this on behalf of Robert DeVoe)
I’m happy to report that the last three months of me acting as the PIVX PR and Communications Administrator has been a big success. I successfully launched a couple of big announcements press releases and new blog series called PIVXProse that has seen some incredible adoption across both the PIVX community and cryptocurrency news media.
I also had the chance to write a number of blog articles and press releases about PIVX news and sponsorships we have done.
I work closely with Rhubarbarain and team to vet the content, help with research and source creative.
Here are the articles I wrote during my last three-month tenure:
I also have a few articles in the pipeline now including the next installment of PIVXProse and the official press release for the next version of the wallet.
The series was used as a source in several crypto news articles, all without expense to us. One example includes this article about our initiative to bring in more people to the team:
Finally, I started a new Twitter campaign, #PIVXFTW. A number of tweets in this series had a good number of impressions. One tweet garnered over 300k impressions and 87 engagements.
The Next Step
Based on the success of my first 3 months in this position, I would like to request that the community keep me on so that I can continue with this work. In addition, I would like to expand the scope of the project and begin testing for the launch of a new team.
In response to my PIVXProse article about joining PIVX, I received a number of inquiries about joining us as a writer for our blog and press releases. I realized, however, that we do not currently have a system in place to hire writers on a part-time basis in the same way that hire translators. For this reason, I am requesting some additional funding that will be used to hire writers on a per article basis. As per usual, I will keep track of this pool of funds and report it on each subsequent proposal. I will also post the address where the funds are held for verification by the community. I estimate each article will cost between 25 and 50 PIV depending on the writer and their experience and skills.
For this period I would like to request funding for the following:
PR and Communications Administrator - 1000 PIV per month
Funding pool for new author team - 200 PIV per month, unused funds will carry over
Refund of proposal fee - 50 PIV
Total: 1250 PIV x 3
