Support base check for reviving ecosystem funded ad-campaign for Hive

In the early days of steem I started an ecosystem funded ad-campaign for the platform. Using the income from votes to fund advertise the then novel platform on platforms popular in the crypto-space at the time.

This included a call for action to others to do the same.
This lead to a community of likeminded people resulting in placing actual billboards next to busy highways (!!).

Auckland, New Zealand

Durban, South Africa

I was speaking to @hiro-hive a while ago and the topic came up after I noticed he was running similar efforts to promote Hive. He suggested to revive the iniative for the Hive ecosystem.

By now, 5 years later, we luckily have much better ways to structure an iniative like this through the proposals system.

I made this post to check if there's community support for running this.
If there is, I will construct a proposal detailing on the most feasible platforms to advertise on including their reach/cost anylises. (suggestions welcome!)

I'm also looking for individuals who, preferably with a marketing background, would be willing to create or have pointers on creating the advertisement material such as banners/artwork.

The material used back then was, well, not A grade ;)
I'm confident we could do better 5 years later.

Below is a rundown of my involvement in the campaign.

How it started

Blockchain.info and just-dice

Facebook (They weren't happy with that one), Coinmarketcap, blockchain.info, just-dice

Blockchain.info and Coinmarketcap results

Summary post after the iniative

I'm excited to hear from the community what they think of the iniative, what they think should be added, or improved.

And most importantly if you think this project should be revived.

Hello @untzuntzuntz! This is @traciyork from the @ocd (Original Content Decentralized) curation team. We noticed you shared your first post here on Hive and introduced yourself to the community - congratulations and welcome... oh wait, I should say, "welcome back!" 😊

I'll skip the rest of the usual newbie message since you're definitely savvy about the blockchain...lol! And I vaguely remember that initiative, even though it happened about a year before I joined our legacy chain - when I'm done with my Love Sniper curation for today, I'm going to check out those posts & then pop back over with my thoughts. In the meantime, happy Hiving!
