General Discussion / Getting churches involved
« on: April 15, 2018, 03:19:46 pm »
So everything around BiblePay right now is about individuals contributing and helping out - which is awesome, don't get me wrong.

However, I was speaking to our small group today, and a member of the group who is a deacon in the church started brainstorming with me about how the church could really get involved and leverage this. It's trickier than it seemed on first glance.

Of course, the church has a budget of its own, with its own commitments. A small percentage of that budget could be diverted into buying/holding BBP, and exchanging it periodically - although that requires an individual with significantly more "crypto" familiarity and comfort than most church financial officers have.

We threw around a few other ideas, and the conversation is by no means closed, but I'm wondering your thoughts. How could a reasonably sized American church (say, weekly membership of about 2500 or so)  get involved with BiblePay?

Good catch on "revolutionary" - updated as per the suggestion. Man, I feel like I read through this thing so many times...good to have someone who is a step removed read through it. Thanks again :)

As for the PODC explanation, I actually considered a page on that, but was worried that I was reproducing the whole wiki in whitepaper form, and that it might still be under a bit of change (things like inter-project weighting, for instance). My thought is to wait a bit on this and maybe add it in once things settle down, but I'm happy to hear what others think.

I really like this idea. My votes are a yes.

Production Proposals / Whitepaper update
« on: April 10, 2018, 09:42:51 am »
I decided to take a stab at making us a slightly more complete, professional-looking whitepaper. It's been reviewed by Rob, Jaapgvk, and Togoshigekata and shared on the Bitcointalk forum where it has been well-received. In addition to adding some better layout and design, some additional sections were created - ther's now a market opportunity section (which includes some supporting stats and outside references), as well as a BiblePay one-pager and a roadmap visualization.

I'm happy to do some minor modifications/etc in the future without a new proposal.

I will of course give the PDF & MS Word versions to the reviewers mentioned above, as they seem to be in charge of most places the whitepaper might be found (Reddit forums, website, etc). If there's anywhere else it should be posted and I can do it, I'll post it myself at the request of the community. If there's anywhere I CAN'T, then I'll hand it over to someone who can. This proposal is really just about the creation of it, but obviously there's not much value without some distribution.

The whitepaper can be seen here with all feedback incorporated:

Now in terms of the time/value, I'm trying to keep the hourly rate to something that puts the cost within reason, but between research, writing, layout/design, and image sourcing, it definitely took a fair chunk of time. I feel that 20 hours is definitely on the low end of what I spent, but I really wanted to cap the value of this thing, so that's what I went with.

Funding Math

1 BBP = .002309 (Apr 10 2018, CoinMarketCap)
Rate of $25/hr (tech writing/layout should be reasonably cheap)
20 Hours
216543 BBP

 - I suspect this should come out of the PR budget, and will submit accordingly.
