A new brand for a shiny new PTS
« on: December 17, 2014, 01:25:47 pm »
Hi guys

We just sailed through a smooth and successful PTS 2.0 launch.  This may be a bit early but we like to hear your ideas of how we should shape the brand of PTS - the digital currency of the future.  What would it be like?  The fun and friendly Dogecoin?  The serious and get-things-done Bitcoin?  How would you like people to feel and think of when they are holding a PTS token in their hand?

And what do you think of a meme?  Does PTS need a meme?  Please share your thoughts.

hi, i think for this things are those coins.

PTS the coin that give you extra profit with assets.rain when new DACs are coming out.

now
can remark extra fast transactions and high volume transfers per second

forgot to use 20 numbers adress to make transactions just use a name to send him coins.

and sure show RESPECT to earth with an extra energy efficient algorithm.
--------

looks like pts come back from future to solve insustainability of cryptos and make holders be bussines mans with participations on DACs
fighting against polution and planet warming
making really easy to use for outsiders making transactions only with name
extra secure protocol

Okie. We get the message.  Our marketing has not gotten out the message.  Our users are not getting the message.  @paging alphabar

PTS2.0 is using the Currency and DPOS functionality parts of bitshares.  The idea is to replace POW with DPOS to make it a more efficient token.

Sparkle and play are adapting bitshares to their needs too and music is not out yet. 

PTS2.0 is really a simple-to-use, light-weight, super-fast (10secs tx), resource-efficient, fairly and widely distributed (via POW-phase), and snapshot-able futuristic digital token.  

Did I miss any memorable features?

I think one of the first things to consider is the name. We should probably start aggregating a list of potential names.

Also, please support PTS in the following BTT threads:

Protoshares: the gift that keeps giving!

First, this will give you a share in future DPOS DACs that will respect the social consensus, and given the number of altcoins that were based on bitcoin, I think we can expect quite a big number of them to pop up in the future, and PTS will give you a share in ALL of them

Second, this is a purely deflationary coin, so basically, free interest (granted, probably not much until volume really catches up, but still a definitely positive number)

Also:

PTS2.0 is really a simple-to-use, light-weight, super-fast (10secs tx), resource-efficient, fairly and widely distributed (via POW-phase), and snapshot-able futuristic digital token.

I like that (except we can't call it Protoshares).

Really? I thought that we couldn't call it BitShares-PTS, but I didn't know that protoshares itself was out of the question. I think the proto part in protoshares was brilliant, we should try to find something that conveys the same idea (ie: something out of which you can mold all other currencies, that serves as a prototype)

I think the value may lie with being a no-inflation crypto-currency and expanding on that.

There also seems to be resistance to this version of PTS in the Chinese community and they are the main market you want to win.

If the market gives PTS a low value in the next few weeks, I would consider rebranding around the idea of a no inflation currency that can be share dropped on vs. a sharedrop token that is also a no inflation crypto-currency.

I would then ask the Chinese for input on what to name it. Perhaps something like or derived from
Dragon with a symbol of a dragon would be popular in China and worldwide.

Non-inflation is definitely an attribute of PTS.  But I think the term 'non-inflation' is too technical to an average user.  How could we make it into a really simple message?

"the gift that keeps giving!"  is a good quote.  Somehow it is kind of abstract for a lay person.  'PTS is a gift?' 'From who?'  'For who?'
