Steem Outreach Initiative - Steem Ambassadors : looking for crypto events to speak at in America

in steem •  9 months ago 

A few weeks ago I put forward some ideas for kickstarting a Steem Outreach Initiative.

One of those ideas was a Steem Ambassadors program to support people to go to crypto and blockchain events around the world to talk about Steem.

With travel, accommodation and conference fees this program would require financial resources to take it forward and so I had outlined in my post a draft proposal plan to put to the Steem Proposal System.

This has not so far gained enough momentum to take forward a full proposal to the SPS. However prominent Steem investor and 3Speak co-founder @theycallmedan has come forward and offered to go to events at his own expense across America to present Steem.

Therefore as a starting point for this I have done some initial research to find potential events for Dan to speak at.

He is able to attend conferences across the USA, and also possibly Canada and South America.

Below are a number of crypto/blockchain related conferences identified so far.

Some are going to be too soon. Some are not going to have the right focus. Some will not be accepting offers to speak.

But it is a starting point.

I am quite sure, from the collective knowledge of the Steem community, we can build and refine this list to identify the most suitable events for Dan to attend.

Therefore I am looking for input...

  • do you know anything about these listed events, in terms of suitability etc?
  • do you have any personal connections with any of the event organisers?
  • do you know of any other suitable events in the next 12 months?

Thank you.

Thank you @pennsif, America is good place lots of populace to invest cryptocurrency self, the marketing strategy feels good and I think this ideas gonna help bring much impact in trading cryptocurrency.

Hi @pennsif,

Letting you know we lost an important minnow-booster yesterday, and this is my post about that.

Whale Tip! Only YOU Can Save NewSTEEM

This was a blow to STEEM and to many little fish. My post is an effort to find anyone with sizable accounts to help down below. It's fine to go for new people, but we also should focus on stopping the bleeding we have here now.

That is sad. Hopefully new ways to support this sort of initiative are found.

I am looking forward to reading your report backs from SteemFest.

Hopefully you will get the opportunity to talk to some of the bigger account holders about these sorts of issues.

Trust me @pennsif. This is my only goal there, and they will hear from me unless they run away :)

Have fun...
