With recent talks on Slack and bitcointalk about small marketing I noticed a few possible improvements for the website (vcash.info).
- Official Twitter.
There are @xcoredev and @vcashinfo but neither is linked from the website (vcash.info). @vcashinfo really looks right for the official news source because it has 'vcash' in name and the logo, but I don't know if it is controlled by the core team. If not, consider something like "vcashproject". In any case, Twitter account is common for crypto projects for delivering news and it should be linked from vcash.info.
Same as Twitter, https://www.reddit.com/r/Vcash/ should be linked from vcash.info.
- Electron wallet
Correct if wrong, but I think vcash-electron is not linked at all from vcash.info. I see active development in that wallet and the screenshot looks nice, I think it deserves an "official mention". Also, if it happens please make sure to highlight the fact that it has deb and AUR packages. This is very convenient and triggers "wow respect" thing. I wish more crypto projects cared about Linux packages.
- Links to bitcointalk.org thread
As an old tradition in crypto, some discussions inevitably happen on bitcointalk.org. It helps a lot when you can quickly find the "official" thread. I assume right now it is https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1504342.0 because it looks alive and maintained, while the other two I knew of https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1064326.0 and https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1578775.0 are dead. Also, the new thread should be linked from our coinmarketcap.com page.
- Paper wallet link
I found https://vcashwallet.github.io/ linked from the bticointalk thread. Again it should be linked from vcash.info, but only if it deserves it (I have not checked the source code).
- Signed binaries
It is good practice in crypto projects to sign release binaries with their keys. Unfortunately not many projects follow it, and not many users/investors look for it, but really they should.
- Message for investors
As someone looking at the project from outside, but knowing a bit of its history, my biggest concern as an investor is the heritage left by JC without any "knowledge transfer". It consists of some novel theory, which is not extensively explained in the papers, and its implementation in the huge codebase of 100k LoC C++. It is really a miracle that xCore is here for quite a long time and is able to handle it. But from what I see it really takes time to get into JC's engineering. So when I think about investing I worry that there will be too few resources available to fix problems. Please note my point here is to not undermine xCore -- I respect him and thankful for his work! The point is to share how it feels from the outside. If there is anything in your plans to counter that feeling that would be huge for the project.
