It’s been 10 years since the first block was mined, since Satoshi Nakamoto released his whitepaper and since the commencement of the first crypto discussions with Satoshi Nakamoto himself.
Crypto community came into being in 2008 and from then on it has been growing every day. First it was concentrated on Sourceforge forum and then, in 2009 it moved to Bitcointalk, which has become the main arena for the crypto world, and further grew into a multi billion industry.
All milestones in crypto history are to some extent related to this old nerdy forum: bitcoin pizza, misspeling “hodl”, announcement of the first crypto exchange and many more. Not a single project started without being announced on bitcointalk. Bitmedia is also there for sure:) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1203700.0
Obviously the forum is a place where the notion of crypto advertising started. To be more precise it started here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=20.0, from the announcement of the first crypto exchange. More and more projects working for the community started to come to bitcointalk later. That was a place where one could fight for the attention of their target audience acquire customers and get the most honest feedback. All in one!
Later in 2012 first banner ads appeared in crypto community. And for sure they were on Bitcointalk, and they were and still are auctioned.
The forum kept growing, the community expanded much further than bitcointalk, but digital advertising was still totally obsolete. It never evolved further than banner ads and a lack of control over the performance. News outlets, and community websites still remain the key spot to reaching out to that one “right” customer. But they are so expensive and so inefficient. OMG, just look at the ICO wild west of 2017! Millions of millions of dollars were spent on advertising,
ON OUTDATED BANNER ADS, WHERE USERS COULDN’T BE TARGETED OR VALIDATED.
And that’s in the world of blockchain – the most progressive technology of XIX. WOW!
