PIVX Foundation: able to KYC to receive

Draft - This will be a 1-month proposal, created to compensate for the extra time and resources needed to create a focused campaign in order to maximize the marketing of The next PIVX Core Wallet 4.0 (version and name TBD). Much of the prep work is started and it will be launched prior to payment so - this will mean we will work first and get paid later.

New QT Wallet 4.0 - Marketing Campaign

The goal is to get some attention in both crypto and mainstream media. But more realistically this will be more for PIVIans to get excited about. The big deal is since bitcoin and the QT wallet, not much has changed for core wallets. This will be the first real change in both tech and user journey. PIVX not only innovating technically but toward real-world adoption and ease of use, which is one of THE BIGGEST complaints about crypto next to its volatility. Making Crypto friendly and being best in class for tech, and focused on community, etc... a good story.

A fellow PIVian who's seen the WIP said "PIVX has once again innovated massively by rewriting the same old-school geeky QT core wallet everyone has tweaked and tweaked. It is now completely reworked and made much more user-friendly. Just you watch .... every one of the PIVX clones out there (and many other alt-coins) are now going to struggle to shoehorn this wallet into their codebase because staying old-school just ain't cool."

This proposal also will highlight the missing team members needed to effectively do marketing for PIVX. Our hope is that some of these people and their skills will be considered for on-going work, as opposed to just this one off campaign effort. This is a great excuse to re-build a supported marketing team.

Key Messages/Headlines (WIP)
"Best Core Wallet in Crypto!"
“Most Innovative and User-Friendly Core Wallet in Crypto”
“Finally, a Wallet Your Grandma Can Use!”

  • Get some media attention and increase user adoption
  • Continue the momentum of a great project
  • Excite and encourage the PIVians/Ambassadors. Some good news!

Steph and Rhubarbarian have already logged many hours in preparation, but the official campaign will start after 3.3 has landed safely.

Although nothing is guaranteed, we hope to increase energy within the community, attract new investors (Increased value) and see wallet downloads increase
Media attention in the form of web-media pickups and YouTuber reviews. We will track and report Number of downloads / overall response/issues, social engagement etc. Going to try some a/B testing as well.

Should move this to Pre-Proposal section. 4.0 is still a ways off so might want to consider spreading this out over multiple cycles too as the need isn't immediate.

Edit: also, please try to follow the formatting guidelines, having that code block at the very top with the short-stat details is very helpful

roger that - thanks
I'm not part of the marketing team.. no idea why i'm in the proposal.

Don't confuse my help and the large amount of time that I spend answering every single question, trying to support every person in the community for the good sake of the project with be responsible or part of the marketing team.
Not confused at all. It was meant to recognize you as the lead on the development of the thing we are marketing. You are very much part of the team and integral to making this work. Without you and your intel, there would be no marketing. Don’t worry, we don’t need you to do anything other than keep answering my questions. Ignore everybody else! Ha!
ok, no problem. Just trying to clarify this to not mix responsibilities. I'm glad to help in whatever i can, but really cannot be everywhere.
