The team have done an excellent job of building a strong, knowledgable and supportive community, and that support has shone through time and time again, especially over on twitter.
Now that GA is some several months away - and the team is hard at work to that end - I feel that it’s our turn to actively and fiercely try to expand our community, by spreading awareness of Nash and the NEX token purely from an investment standpoint. Not all of us are developers, but this is something that any of us can do to contribute.
The stronger our community, the easier it will be for us to deflect disinformation; and when taker bots eventually become available, having more of us willing to run them will help generate and sustain more attention-grabbing volume in the space.
So, what can we do to grow our community? Feel free to post your ideas below.
There’s a lot of closed-minded tribalism in the crypto space, and expending energy trying to help those who are not receptive to your efforts is energy wasted. I think one great method is to seek out average individuals who are trying to improve their situation by researching ways to invest and grow their assets.
I’ve noticed there’s a lot of these types of people over on YouTube; they’re seeking advice and searching for guides (titles such as “what should I invest in?”, “how to start investing?”, “how much investment do I need to live off dividends?”), and many leave comments on the videos such as “How do I invest if I only have $200-500?” or “It would take me 30 years to achieve what you detailed in this video”. Click on enough of those videos and they start popping up in the recommended section of the homepage.
I believe (likely non-crypto) crowds like those would be very intrigued by the NEX dividend model, and/or the possibility of being able to learn how to run a bot from their home PC. They don’t care about DEXes, they probably have no idea what binance or coinbase is, they’re just looking to increase their wealth and improve their lives. If we each managed to educate and attract 2-3 people to our community, we’d strengthen our position and Nash would be all the more likely to succeed.
Hopefully we’d be doing these people a massive favor, while simultaneously introducing them to crypto towards the end of a bear market, after 2 years of following Nash; and seeing as we’re appealing to investors (no different from ourselves), and not trying to attract traders, there’s no reason that we should wait until Nash is GA-ready. Now feels like the perfect time to grow our community by spreading awareness of the NEX token. Hopefully many of you agree, and have some interesting ideas on how we could go about this.
