For our general operating costs (PR company, articles, interviews, graphics/videos, staff payments) we are requesting a total of 300000SYS.

What’s Next for the Syscoin Marketing Team?

We are currently focussed on delivering a high-profile AMA and trading competition, with SYS prizes. In addition to this and the ongoing SMT work such as social media management, business development, weekly or bi-weekly updates etc, our main point of focus is further adoption of the Syscoin Bridge; here are some of the ways we are working with our PR agency to achieve our goals.

Syscoin Bridge

The major marketing exercise with our PR company to promote Syscoin Bridge is ongoing. Recent successes in that area include the partnership with Binance Research Labs to use Syscoin Platform for BUSD.

Expand digital footprint

Now that the digital footprint of Syscoin is firmly established (Google, Syscoin, Click news, etc) we plan to maintain and expand it with relevant articles and thought-leader pieces that highlight Syscoin, such as this [CoinTelegraph](https://cointelegraph.com/news/binance-to-transfer-busd-across-blockchains-on-syscoin-ethereum-bridge) or [CoinCodex](https://coincodex.com/article/9032/binance-pledges-to-use-syscoin-ethereum-bridge-to-aid-blockchain-scaling/) article. We will also keep an Adwords campaign running to strengthen the marketing activities. This is the basic foundation we need to maintain for Syscoin Ethereum Bridge and Syscoin Platform itself to remain prominent on the news sites.

Business development, direct outreach

To further promote adoption we will reach out directly to ERC-20 projects, blockchain consultancy and development companies, and other companies that would benefit from using the bridge or Syscoin Platform. As mentioned above, we have now formed a dedicated team for this and we will be providing them with the tools they need to succeed; such as Bridge and Syscoin Platform sales decks, demo videos showing the bridge in-use with the ERC-20 projects that we are reaching out to, a dynamic fee table to show the fee savings, and much more. We will also share these tools with the rest of the community.


We have made several awards through our Bridge bounty campaign, and we continue to receive applications from ERC-20 projects, blockchain development companies, and individual developers who want to use the bridge and share their experience with their communities.


We have a strong focus on education; we have partnered up with Blockgeeks a leading blockchain education platform, and we will educate their users on the Bridge and other Syscoin Platform features using webinars and written guides, [our first webinar was a great success already](https://courses.blockgeeks.com/course/introduction-to-syscoin-platform-interoperability-scalability/)!

Events and Working Groups

As partners of [2Tokens](https://www.2tokens.org/) and [ITSA](https://itsa.global/) we are joining working groups and events on a regular basis. We will also resume hosting live events with some of our partners when it is possible to do so.

Budget for August

For the coming round of Masternode funding, we are requesting 300000 SYS.

High level overview of SMT monthly expenses:

Item Cost ($)
High-profile AMA 5000
