well that s a nice plead for the Litecoin's silver analogy.
if i were to determine the crypto that is the closest to silver or that simulates silver the best, i would certainly choose Litecoin after reading your plead.
but i certainly do not think that all marketing of Litecoin should be based on this analogy because i think that people that want to buy litecoins are not looking necessarily for a digital silver...
this analogy serves us as a psychological trigger though, in people's subconscious.
my point is that the word "silver" should not be mentioned once in the official marketing message of litecoin, only subliminally via the logo for example.
the main reasons are:
- the silver analogy is a subliminal analogy.
- litecoin forms a pair with bitcoin (in terms of development), therefore litecoin should copy bitcoin in its official marketing strategy as well.
go to https://bitcoin.org/-
, and you will see that they never mention once the word "gold". mentioning "silver" would be an infringement of the close relationship with bitcoin.
I believe the success of litecoin (as long as coblee/togami are the main developers or litecoin is not forked to something else better) lies in keeping the pairing with bitcoin intact.
Therefore litecoin.org (the official landing page) should never mention the word "silver".
Please note that I used the word "official".
There are plenty of other aspects of Litecoin besides its silver analogy and there are already some fervent litecoiners (freejack, cryptocoiner, themage to name a few) that are creating their own marketing of litecoin and nothing would prevent such initiatives from thriving.
