Mt Gox G8 Summit

Tokyo-based Bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox has published a new appeal to the Bitcoin community. After a successful ad campaign promoting the positive adoption of Bitcoin during the G8 Summit in June, Mt.Gox’s parent company Tibanne is developing a grassroots campaign to show how Bitcoin affects real people and small businesses.

They are accepting crowd-sourced submissions by Wednesday, August 7.

Here is the official appeal from Mt.Gox:

Dear Bitcoiners,
Thanks so much for your support of our previous ad for the G8 Summit in June. We were able to get Bitcoin in front of a lot of influential people from around the globe and received a lot of amazing feedback.

Right now our parent company Tibanne is working on another campaign to promote Bitcoin by showing how real people and businesses are using Bitcoin to improve their lives. The campaign will be launched in a major print ad and website.

It’s short timing, but we’re appealing to merchants and individuals in the Bitcoin community interested in sharing their experiences with Bitcoin as part of this campaign. We’ll feature selected people and businesses in the ad as well as on the site, and of course link back to you.

What we need:

- Picture of you if you’re an individual, and you and your business if you’re an owner
- A quick quote about how Bitcoin has influenced you or your business
- We’ll need you to sign a release as well, so we’ll send that to you when you get in touch

The deadline for submission is August 7th 2013 (Wednesday) EOD. If anyone would like more information or has any questions, please don’t hesitate to post them here or send us an email at stories@tibanne.com

Thanks so much for your help, and we’re looking forward to getting your stories out to the world.

Mt Gox G8 Summit

“Come and Join Us!” says Mt. Gox

As the 2013 G8 summit kicked off last week, global leaders were discussing broad economic issues.

The Mt. Gox team bought a full page ad for Bitcoin in the middle of the G8 Research Group’s official magazine with a link to a special landing page.

The full publication is available here (Mt. Gox is on page 8).

Mt. Gox commented on their goals of placing this ad:

We want to convey a bold message as global opinion on Bitcoin is very diverse. Especially for G8 members it’s important to highlight what’s really important for Bitcoin to change the world. Bitcoin has the potential to bring together global citizens by enabling worldwide commerce with low costs and ease of entry for all social strata. Rather than dilute, Bitcoin enhances. Mt. Gox is looking forward to a positive outcome from the G8, and to being a part of the dialogue going forward.
