Memehunter: Next steps and how you can help

Rewards

No YUP/tokens awarded

 

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, 

 

Memehunter won 3rd place in the Aeternity Universe One hackathon where we received $600 USD in AE token to begin as our starting budget. In case this is the first time of hearing about Memehunter, please watch our presentation from the hackathon here, and go to 9:08:18 of the stream to watch Ethan's 6-minute presentation.  

 

It has been agreed upon by the team, we will reach out to top meme creators about the idea, in addition to posting on meme community sites. If we discover, the community is open arms to the idea, we start developing, if not, we at least identified there is no market, and was a good learning experience giving it a try. 

 

As an update to the model and idea. Our team discussed that we believe if we had a “Meme Guild” meaning a core starting group that are active and popular Meme creators, it would give us the best chance to get it going. This “Meme Guild” would also select more meme artists to join in the future. In addition, develop rules like, “has to be original content, has not been posted on the open internet from the meme artists ect. 

 

Basically you can’t just have anyone post memes that they copy on the internet. Has to be a special group who are respected as original meme content curators. We should also consider having them be part owners in the project, asset holders, as they would be the driving force of making it work.


 

So how can you help?

 

We need to do market research and try to reach out to the meme community. In the comment section tell us what research you collected after you are done. 

 

Actions to consider: 

 

If you recruit a meme creator who wants to be part of the Guild, have them fill out this form. One of the questions on the form asks if a CH community member contacted them, here they will put your CH user name as a referral. CH will take note of all community participants, identifying them as a Memehunter ambassador. Thus, we make sure there will be incentives for being part of the project in the future if we discover a need and begin building. 

 

We look forward to hearing from you all! Let's identify if there is a real market here.

 

Cheers, 

 

CH Team

wow, very nice project indeed, I would love to get involved and get a whole bunch of ot5her person also, would also like to know the deadline for the registration. This is also a very great leap both for the community and also for the crypto sphere also because with projects likie this it will attract more investors from outside to join and particpate in the program and thus there will be an increase in the crypto market in many sectors most especially in graphics design, product creation and so on.

I also very much like the "referral" because with this i know that I will also be rewarded for those that i bring to the platform, very nice idea indeed.

Wow, for me this is really great news, i have not been around lately and seeing this now i feel so thrilled to do more.  will surely participate in this and most probably invite others to the program also.

Is there any deadline for these tasks to expire, that is the registration process or will it be open for much longer or will it end with this expiration of this task, because i might have some persons to register here.

I will surely get into this and also try to improve my self better so as to get more out of it.

UPDATE ON MY 1ST POST

I have contacted a few meme creators via social media but they are yet to respond. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but these guys have lots of followers and seem to get loads of messages per day. It might be that my message has been swallowed amongst them. I'm still waiting and contacting others though.

For some reason I can't reply to Tom Steel under his comment to me. When I saw the post from Dok, first I thought it was a generic response until I saw he did it on other tasks too. I have reported these types of posts in the past but they didn't get removed. Maybe because generically, it does fit? (Not sure) anyway, I agree that those posts do spoil the idea of the community.

If you want to reach the people who make memes then why not create and use a platform personalised set of memes that lead back to said project? There are endless meme communities that we can share them to, If you make one set of 10 or 20 and even one of them catches peoples eyes it could get viewed by more people and passed around further than any ad, event or promotion ever could.

Good idea Neal. Once people share, the word gets out and attracts more people.

here is a link for the tweet i sent out. Hope it helps. Kinda like shutterstock for memes. I think it could work.

that link above was not for a tweet but rather it was the raw link of the google form link that was sent, maybe you can resend the link here in the comment for us to see and like and also retweet.

i noticed that also, the links direct you back to the google form page, pls check and correct.

By all means i will do my best to share this task out on social media and see what the uptake is for this. 

I did have one question. Would you be looking at people to create the whole meme? In other words....many memes feature pictures from known characters of photos taken off the internet and then a caption is written over the top. Would you accept this as content creation or would you be looking at getting people to create from the bottom up? i.e. original picture/video/ graphics with original comment over the top?

In terms of getting a target audience youd want to go the social media influencers route. Many of the poeple who have monetised Instagram etc would be happy to have original content to post to their army of followers

One of the best ways of curating a list of meme creators is to do it via top video-centric/photo-centric apps. Here, Instagram comes into play. You could add Snapchat and maybe Twitter. You could arguably include Facebook too but I wouldn't bank my hopes on that. I am working on contacting some of these guys. I'll update Crowdholding on what transpires later.

For me i will say that any social media site with lots of members will be a very good place to share this, even WhatsApp will also be good to get those that are also very close to you.

Congratulations on winning the third place in the hackathon. Unfortunately, I'm not a creator nor also do I know anything about meme creators. I strongly agree that posting this offer directly to the Meme Creators community (Twitter and Youtube, etc) is the best way. And if you find a good Meme artist in Crowdholding, of course, give him a top priority.
Anyway, because of your task of AEternity,  I learned about meme and had a good experience. Additionally I become to know meme is very effective and potential through searching for meme on Youtube or Twitter.  I wish AEternity's meme project success.

Wow, congratulations guys. Let's get to work now. Do you have any brochure for getting people?

Maybe someone here can put something together as a separate CH project?

I actually think I might be able to reach out to a number of artists. Particularly, from the African and East African markets. This is due to the fact that there's plenty of talent, and the general mindset is kind of fresh compared to near-monotonous tones resonating from the North-Western hemisphere due to the influence of generic social media to their imaginations. Decentralization unleashes creativity.

Congrats on third place at the hackathon! $600- not bad. I, unfortunately am not a meme creator nor do I know of any meme creators. From past tasks on CH, it doesn't seem many of us are very artistically creative. There are a few exceptions. I think to form a meme guild, you will need to recruit outside of CH. Of course, those crowdholders who are artistic should be given first opportunity to be part of the guild. Keep up the good work!

that's the idea to get those that we can from outside, and if you get you will get an incentive for doing so, i will say that that is a very nice thing to do. LOOKING OUTSIDE THE BOX.

Although you Rapheal are one of our artistic few so if this happens I look forward to seeing your creations.

I am excited about the future of all crypto currency.

This is really great. I live on the west coast. The majority of my population are meme stupid. You couldn't pay them enough to make a good meme. Their political agendas seem to robb them of humor. It is hard for me to imagine someone needing special attention to making a meme. You might be better off on Reddit or 4 Chan recruiting meme creators, who will probably troll you on this idea.  Good luck on this!
