Marketing and PR (ENG)
Strategy for the English-speaking markets:
· We’ve created the basic toolkit for future PR activities — the press kit, which gives a media-friendly background about (1) Sibcoin, (2) The Sibcoin Foundation and (3) the biography of Alexander Nozovhenov — the head of the Sibcoin Foundation. The documents will be available in the ‘Press / Media’ section of the new website and will help journalists to put Sibcoin into context as stories emerge
· Relevant journalists in the main English speaking cryptocurrency and fintech have been identified. Sibcoin will look to develop these relationships and the journalists will be receiving the press briefings from the PR team in order to further raise Sibcoin’s brand awareness and trust
· The team has been carefully working on its plans to approach the media. In the light of the currently turbulent times for the cryptocurrency, one of our main objectives is to make sure that Sibcoin is a trustworthy and credible
· The long-term impact of the negative news about the crypto-world, according to most participants in the crypto community, should have been neutralised by the start of the Consensus 2018, however the harsh reality turned out to be unpredictable. There are three professional experts, including Alexander Novozhenov who shared the true reasons for such a prolonged fall and prospects for the future with BitCryptNews: https://bitcryptonews.ru/news/cryptocurrency/pochemu-padaet-ryinok-prodolzhaem-razbiratsya (RU)
· The rapid development of the crypto industry puts regulators in a difficult position. They either have to keep up with the current developments or slow them down with limiting or prohibitive regulation, the latter potentially supportive of the traditional economy. However, not all countries are so categorical. On the contrary, for many, the development of cryptocurrency and the creation of national coins can be a way forward.
