Today, there was a nice debate on how to grow marketing for FLASH. While reading the discussion, I had the following idea some people really liked. So, let’s see what all of the community says.
Look, we once had this tweet: https://twitter.com/Flashstake/status/1360437685505122304
What if we made a marketing stunt and actually flashstaked a new Tesla with the Foundation Funds?
At the moment, the Foundation Fund includes pretty exactly 1m FLASH.
Flashstaking them all at once, they would need to be locked 60-70 days, generating 21-23 ETH upfront.
Enough to purchase an actual Tesla Model 3.
My proposal is to give away this car to one lucky person. Why?
A giveaway like this could…
… make a big impact in the crypto space, since it’s a giveaway which has no one barely seen before (and which is actually legit, lol)
… attract many new people, since it’s likely a giveaway like this would be talked about in crypto space pretty much
… be a great opportunity to educate people about the potential and mechanics of flahstaking and upfront yield
… attract Elon Musk himself and unleash insane marketing potential.
… be a huge giveaway that has literally no cost for anyone.
If you like the idea, the big question is how the rules would look.
There are some options I thought about or read about on TG, but maybe you have even different ones!
One Tweet. Retweets count as entry, one lucky winner.
I must admit, I’m a fan of that. No barriers, probably very high engagement.
Cons: It’s not guaranteed that people look at Flashstake, bad actors with multiple accounts have bigger chances.
Raffle among FLASH holders.
Would bring buy pressure on FLASH, but has no effect on the protocol itself. Could also look a bit “shady”.
Option C (mentioned by Zachary already)
Raffle among everyone who is participating in the Flashstake Dapp. Higher flashstaked amount gives more tickets.
Pros: Gives huge influx of people interacting with the protocol, makes people understand the protocol by interacting with it. Only people who are serious about the giveaway and FLASH are eligible.
Cons: Creates an extra barrier. People with small wallets have way less chances than whales (in an inequal world, something ‘different’ would be cool). Rules would need to be explained very well.
No matter which option it would be, I see good possibilities for severeal strong Twitter (e.g. commenting under Elons posts) and Reddit posts, Youtube videos or even influencers who talk about it by themselves.
What’s your opinion? Do you have better ideas on how to make the rules? Or any cons I didn’t see yet?
