It's already having 700 crypto followers, so it would be nice to get it back. I would handle if no one want to (my english is not that good, so there is probably better option then me for that spot).
Btw many good ideas here !
For outside Iceland, I think that any effort have to be toward replacing the facts on. There is a lot of holes, misconceptions and pure lies out there about Aur. Someone i know told me ''it must be emberassing'' to post some positive tweet about AUR. It mesure all the gap between image and reality, to say the least, and I would focus on filling this gap. Some guys here are pretty good at it, so I would try to set as much interviews as possible - each time spreading the same truth about Auroracoin past and actual - future goals. Positive attention will drive the price up - price up will help acceptation-use in Iceland, use in Iceland will attract investors, investors will drive the price up, so medias would be interested, etc. We need to get rid of the false scammy image first.
This is absolutely correct. Fortunately all the fiasco around Auroracoin hype and price didn't touch people here in Iceland much, so the Auroracoin name hasn't got this stain on it as it does in the crypto community.
For people here in Iceland it isn't really needed to fix some facts but essential none the less to have good content on the foundation site so people can get all the facts correct if they are exposed to some false information.
Fore the rest of the crypto community this will be a challenge. There were too many unrealistic expectations going on and too many people got burned and feel cheated. So they will stick to the scam callings for some time. I was thinking that maybe to help in this we might write a proper article with all the facts. Explaining the true meaning of this project, what really happened, what is going on and what people can really expect. No hype just simple facts. So that whenever we see people with wrong information we can simply point them to this article where they can get their facts straight. Not a solution to the endless trolling but this might clear up a lot of things for interested people that just have the wrong information.
What do you guys think?
