Third Governance Voting - f(x)DM - Function X Decentralized Marketing

Proposal: Function X Decentralized Marketing

A decentralized reward mechanism to mobilize community talents to grow Function X brand and awareness!

With the launch of Function X Mainnet, we’re continuing our commitment to make our network and operation as decentralized as possible. During our journey, we have come across community members who contribute regularly and generate marketing content, explore new marketing opportunities, engage community members and more. We believe that there should be a mechanism to curate these quality marketing efforts, expand the network and involve more people to grow together with Function X.

We’d like to propose a new program called Function X Decentralized Marketing a.k.a f(x)DM. The objective of f(x)DM is to further grow the Function X network by allowing our community members to hop on the f(x)DM vehicle. It’s clear that there are many talented people in our worldwide community including artists, video creators, podcasters, writers, etc., who love to create stunning and informative content. Some already have an established audience and others are hidden gems. Therefore, we’d like to create a welcome environment to invite them all to work together for Function X.

The budget for this program is about 1 million US dollars worth of FX coins over a period of at least 2 years. The award will be based on an evaluation by the community as well as an assessment made by the panel of the individual’s (or team’s) ongoing active participation in the Forum and contributions on Function X official social media channels (eg., Reddit, Telegram, Facebook, Instagram, etc.). This is what we call “engagement performance”. Every three months we’ll announce a list of award recipients. Participants can submit their content anytime either to fxdm@functionx.io (for contributing content for Function X official channels) or a link that is published directly via their own channels.

Since this will be a decentralized approach, we plan to invite a group of people to sit on a panel to determine which submitted content will be eligible for the reward. This group of people will be known as FXNEERS (Function X marketing engineers) and will consist of 7 people, 3 from Function X / Pundi X and 4 who will be community volunteers. FXNEERS cannot participate in this program or receive an FXDM award during their tenure (each tenure for community volunteers is 6 months). Instead, they will receive exclusive FXNEERS personalized items, ex. t-shirts, mugs and backpacks to recognize their efforts. In this way, we hope to keep the selection process fair. If there are more than 4 volunteers who want to join FXNEERS, the seats will be decided by the amount of FX held by an individual. That is, the more FX an individual holds, the greater the possibility that the individual will be chosen to sit on the panel.

How to participate in the f(x)DM?

Participation in f(x)DM can be done through contributing marketing materials in two categories: one for Self-Owned / 3rd Party Channels and the other, the Official Function X Channels.

5. Reasons for being selected and supported.

  • This proposal is designed based on the state of Function X community members who have contributed marketing efforts in their own terms. We believe this can be a way to consolidate the efforts and become an effective marketing task force with incentification to ensure quality and effective deliverables.
  • Invite talented people around the world to work together and generate quality content for Function X. Many people in the community have asked for marketing tactics and made good design suggestions for Function X. We think this decentralized mechanism can provide a way to reward good quality of work with reasonable payout for various marketing initiatives as the award will be decided by the community and the engagement on social media.
  • This mechanism covers the aspect of generating good quality media exposure, including awards for established YouTubers and social media influencers.
  • Increase community engagement.
  • A team formed by Function X and Pundi X staff to implement the mechanism in a fair way.
  • Further growth of the Function X network and raise awareness of Function X applications if possible.

6. Attachments, such as Github link, product prototype, video, planning, blueprint, twitter etc.

  • See above

7. Any extra information might help the community to understand the proposal better

  • We’d like to add a FAQ here to answer the community questions and concerns. It will be updated periodically.

Q: How will FXDM cover the marketing budget for my proposal?

A: FXDM is designed for those who have the plan to produce marketing materials to publish either on their own communication channels or on Function X Official channel but are not able to initiate the community voting with 10,000 FX security deposit from EGF incubation funding. To ensure the quality of the delivery and effectiveness, FXDM adopts a panel consisting of both community members and the project team to select the quality candidates by evaluating the result of the marketing effort and initiate the voting for the marketing bonus allocation.

For a professional marketing agency or established marketing professionals who are able to plan and execute a large marketing campaign to raise Function X awareness significantly and increase the followers of Function X official channels and FXCore users, you can follow the EGF application process and initiate the community voting.

Great to see this initiative. It’s a good start! Now it will be great that you accumulate traffic to your own blog or choose to be a writer to contribute to Function X official channel. This proposal will go through the EGF process for voting. If we get 66.67% of yes, we will be able to start the implementation :pray:t2:

Thanks for the interest. I write on my personal blogs on my free time. Do I have to make a standalone proposal in Proposals category? I was planning to make one. Regarding articles I invite FX team and the community to contribute articles or article ideas.

I like this!

I make twitter promoting fx and pundix

You are welcome. No need to make a proposal since your content can fall into Category 1: Self-Owned / 3rd party Channels.

Very nice, very nice.

We need more real life videos like the ones @zaccheah did in 2018, featuring the Pundi X XPOS in a coffee shop.

If we can attract SMART investors who can do reviews of Function X and educate other smart investors who are not aware of Function X, things will go north easily.

Either through connections or using marketing budget.


One thing i hope the core team can do is to really push marketing for when Pundi X Chain goes live on Function X Network.

Because it is essentially a partnership between Pundi X x Function X.

Have to do a big shout out that a company (PUNDIX) that uses hardware XPOS device is building on the Function X Network - for fast transaction speed, low cost and able to cross-chain in and out of multiple different chains.
