This post applies mostly to people residing in southeast Asia but the logic will gradually be applied to other locations. For now, i want to try to create a moving movement; one that's sincere, real, passionate and see if it is possible to move a Asian-based cryptocurrency exchange that is especially popular in the Philippines, to add Steem and SBD to their exchange.
Coins.ph is very popular in the Philippines. It is also very mainstream as it is a complete remittance app and is affiliated with almost every renown bank here and used by many too.
As handy as it comes, it has always had bitcoin integration and a transition between fiat and bitcoin, that is among the easiest-to-use. All that's involved is "a click of a button".
Buying bitcoin by means of the Philippines pesos (PHP), using the coins.ph app/website is also very very easy. Just load up your coins.ph wallet with PHP, using a bank or a 7 eleven store etc and you can change your fiat to bitcoin within the app, instantly.
Converting your digital currency to PHP using the app/website, comes with a measure of luxury. For steem or SBD, after going through blocktrades.us to convert steem/sbd, receiving it to your coins.ph btc wallet, there is a wide variety of options, e.g one that delivers physical cash to your house and another one that let's you withdraw from an ATM machine (security bank) even without a card.
Almost all Philippine-based utility bills are payable straight from the app too. You can send money internationally and shop online using coins.ph
They also have a really organic way of promoting themselves, with a pretty lucrative referral system, that has created freelance online jobs for many Filipinos, making its growth even more seamless.
Very perfect match for steem, in terms of "steem growth in the Philippines and across southeast Asia".
I wrote in an old post here, about how much of a symbiotic relationship it will be, if coins.ph joins steemit/steem.
I started the process of having them look into steem in the past, by sending them emails etc but i didn't follow up full-blownly as i wanted to pace things. Moreover, i prefer to create a more indispensable movement.
I also wanted to see more of their vision, in terms of its expanse and become more conclusive about its reliability and longevity.
Recently, they added Ethereum to their remittance app and website. They had a short period of beta before it Eth become part of their website/app. And even with their Etheruem wallet, their style across the UI has stay the same! They have a setup that is so mainstream and easy-to-use-and-understand, making "introduction to crypto" for the mainstream audience very seamless and open for growth.
According to me, it is the most easy-to-use cryto-related app within the Philippines and it is very very popular.
One other giant reason for their popularity here is; "there aren't many of such cryptocurrency-based apps here". Apart from coins.ph, there is ABRA, Remitano and perhaps Luno.
More recently, coins.ph has taken their game to next level, making it even more appropriate at this time, to go to them with Steem. They now have an exchange. It is called "the cx.coins.asia exchange".
It is still in beta and open mostly to testers but it already works.
I am a tester currently but more importantly, they now also have a more open/directly channel to reach them with regards to feedback, suggestions etc
They have only rolled out a few cryptocurrency/PHP pairs as seen in the screenshot below and perhaps, it is an appropriate time to move them, into looking to add Steem/PHP & SBD/PHP now.
The setup/style/theme for the exchange is looking great already as it also carries a style of simplicity, being tied seamlessly to their already popular remittance app, "coins.ph" e.g "I didn't need a separate account to login as my coins.ph account worked and ofcourse funding wallets on their exchange can also easily be done, using money that you already have in your coins.ph wallet, be it btc or eth.
They look to become the biggest exchange across Asia and having them join steemit and add the steem-based currencies, will also be great especially in relation to steemit growth in the Philippines and Asia as potential steemians, may find steem/steemit by being familiar with or having been trusting users of coins.ph or "the cx.coins.asia exchange"
You can reference these two posts to understand further:
- Coins.ph-Steem Series #2: STEEM's "Zero Transaction Fees And 3-Seconds Block-time", Is All Coins.Ph Needs To Become Philippines Most Sought-After Financial App!
- It Is Very, Very Easy To Convert Steem Or SBD To PHP or Fiat In The Philippines! "You Only Need Blocktrades & Coins.ph!"
At this point, i would like us to try something to get their attention. Basically, we want to create a movement that we hope will have them consider adding Steem and SBD to their exchange, especially now, when the cx.coins.asia exchange is just opening to the masses.
Since almost all Filipino steemians who have cashed out steem/sbd has used coins.ph and coins.ph now has the cx.coins.asia exchange, let's jointly talk about steem/steemit/SBD to them, in a fun activity, imploring them to look into add steem and sbd to their exchange.
My aim is to go to them solidly, with one steemit post containing all the information they will need about the steem blockchain, the technical requirements etc that they will need to get the steem-based currencies on their exchanges but moreso, indispensable steemian voices (the steemit community) imploring them to consider the beauty of adding on Steem and SBD to their exchange.
Basically, i would like to send them an email correspondence that very much shows the growing community of steemians backing the steem-based currencies and intimate them of a ready-made steemian audience and potential ready-made volumes for the steem-based currencies for their exchange.
Thus, i will like to implore every Philippines-based steemian or any user of coins.ph who is a steemian, to join in, i doing a short YouTube video of themselves, indicating that they earn Steem/SBD constantly, love these currencies, trade it constantly for PHP using coins.ph and stating why you would really love the cx.coins.asia exchange and coins.ph to consider adding the steem/PHP and SBD/PHP pairs.
If possible, you can also add a screenshot of your steemit and coins.ph accounts as part of the video but this is optional.
The general theme of the video should highlight that you are steemian, how you earn using steemit, your love for steem/SBD and that you have also been a coins.ph user, since you have had to use their service to cash out your Steem and SBD earnings and that you will really love the cx.coins.asia exchange and coins.ph to consider adding steem/PHP and sbd/PHP pairs, since there are thousands of steemians in the Philippines backing Steem and Steem dollars.
The video doesn't have to be lengthy. It can be one minute, shorter or longer but not too long.
I am looking to gather 200 of these videos
I will simple add all the URLs to these 200 videos in one well-written steemit post, which i will send to them via email.
There is no loss if you participate by joining in. If we don't get a very tangible response after the first effort, we can always do another movement using just the same videos, wherein each of us send an email again.
The video undertone should highlight your love for steem and the steem-based currencies i.e steem and SBD and why the cx.coins.asia exchange/coins.ph will benefit immensely, if they added our steem-based currencies into their plans.
You may like to add your video as part of a steemit post. In that case, tags to use (so i can locate the videos easily):
If you can't get to do a post, you can simply leave me a comment with the video URL only as soon as you can.
I am looking to gather 200 individual videos to this effect, over the course of the next few days. I will add this videos to one elaborate post, that i will heartily send to coins.ph and their exchange, showing off our love for steem, among all the other beautiful benefits etc
I am pretty positive that they will consider listening to their Philippines-based audience as they plan to be big across Asia.
