If you don't know what the BCF (Bitcoin Cash Fund) is, go check out our website at thebitcoincash.fund or come and talk to us in our community chat at chat.thebitcoincash.fund.

ACTIVE PROJECTS

The goal of the SeatacBCH project is to prepare, deploy, and build a ground-based grassroots movement in the Seatac area of the U.S.A. to promote the acceptance of Bitcoin Cash at local businesses.

Cash is King, will be an open invitational in Detroit. Over 50 businesses in the city will be invited to a 2 hour seminar on Bitcoin Cash. This will include what Bitcoin Cash is, why businesses should accept it, and where to get support. There will be a question and answer session following the presentation. The analytics will be shared with the Bitcoin Cash Fund community, to help efficiency and promote better events.

An advert for Bitcoin Cash. George and his son, Andy are at the barbershop, when George suddenly remembers he left his wallet at home. Luckily, Andy has some Bitcoin Cash and sends his
dad some. George then tips his barber, and pays for both their haircuts. There will also be humorous elements within the script. 2 different edits - One 30 second, and a 1:30 edit.

StickWithBCH

The project is to find people all around the world willing to be node and purchase a stock of 500 stickers to be given out to people in a game. The idea of this game is for participants to post photo’s of their stickers
in unusual or heavily trafficked areas. Participants will be encouraged to get creative with designs that represent their culture and communicate their expression of what BCH is for them. Success of the game can be measured by number of likes, RT’s, comments and requests to participate.

What Is Bitcoin Cash?

This is an internal BCF project to produce a video similar to the What is Bitcoin? video, but remade for Bitcoin Cash. The voiceover for the video is the amazing Kevan Brighting who did the voiceover for the award winning game Stanley Parable. The video will be roughly 1:30 minutes long and should be completed within 2-3 weeks.

We sponsored one of the first Bitcoin Cash meetups that was hosted in Tokyo. It was a HUGE success, and many more people came than were expected. Read more about it HERE. This is surely to be the first of many. If you have a Bitcoin Cash meetup, get in contact and we will sponsor your event. We want to have Bitcoin Cash meetups happening all across the world.

BCF ORGANISATION

We have made some changes to what role the BCF plays in organising the community. We had originally planned to use the process described in this POST, but after evaluating the process and listening to feedback, we feel that this process is too complex as does not drive projects forward well.
We realise that not everyone is a project manager, marketer or all of the other roles that may be required to pull a project together. Therefore we made the decision to change the way we organise the community into teams for projects.
Anyone or any team is still able to submit a project via the previous process, but we will also now be taking a more direct role in putting together team and projects and making sure they are pushed forward to successful completion. Anyone can volunteer some of their time, skills and experience to put towards a project, and we will assign them to a project that can best use their help. See below in the **Volunteers Sought** section. We are now managing projects through Trello and live discussion around the projects happens on our chat.
Another key thing we have started working on is the second phase of our website. Right now our website at thebitcoincash.fund is just a single page static site. While it does its job of giving us a central web presence, it doesn't go very far in helping us communicate or organise the community. The upgrades we are making to the site should significantly help with both of these things.
Our community chat has grown to nearly 850 users already. The conversation goes on pretty much 24/7 there, so if you ever fancy talking about Bitcoin Cash, come and chat there. chat.thebitcoincash.fund

We need people with skills like this to volunteer some of their time for projects to bring awareness and adoption of Bitcoin Cash.

We can also budget some amount of funds for work, but priority will be given to people willing to do at least partially volunteer their time.
If you don't have any of these skills, that doesn't mean we don't need your help. There are lots of other things that projects need help with (i.e. sending out stickers, handing out leaflets, writing education content etc.).

Tipped $50 for awesome work :)
I like all the projects but I'm most excited about the internet marketing stuff. Video first. Then hopefully a continued marketing program of some sort. I think Dash is a role model here - they've been very effective at marketing their currency.
The change to project organization is also probably the correct move and will be more effective than many loosely connected teams.
