Bitcoin Magazine invites you to join the crusade for bitcoin education on TikTok.
Sorry, Bitcoin Twitter – Gen Z is currently being integrated with “Crypto” and no, they don’t like or share your hot-take tweets.
You can do the numbers yourself. More than half of Gen-Z investors are now using TikTok, and it is estimated that the social media platform will have more than 37 million users by 2022.
What does that mean? The “moonbois” are in full swing in a way that more than we can summarize in this article.
Here is a golden selection of examples:
To save the next generation from drunken gambling with doges – or any other animal meme-based coin that will inevitably emerge – we need to work together to teach them the principles of healthy money and why only Bitcoin.
We understand it’s embarrassing. You don’t like filming yourself. You’re using these emojis – 😂🤣 – and aren’t sure why you shouldn’t. But you understand bitcoin, and that’s a start.
At Bitcoin Magazine, we believe this will make TikTok a crucial battleground for the next wave of launches in the months and years to come. We cannot allow shitcoiners and proponents of modern monetary theory to be rampant on the platform.
How can you help
We would like to work with Bitcoiners who can create original sketches, parodies of popular TikToks and talk enthusiastically about Bitcoin basics. We want to captivate viewers in the first few seconds and then inform them about the basics of Bitcoin.
We’ve already made the jump ourselves – you can check out our account run by our very own Sarah Satoshi to see what we’ve started. But we know that this work is not enough.
That’s why we want to create a community where we can share best practices. Be it merging videos, reacting live to videos or replying to comments with videos.
To join our community:
Join our Bitcoin TikTok Telegram Group!
There we share tips and best practices and provide feedback on your contributions.
Whether you’re a Bitcoin influencer looking to expand your audience, or a pleb looking to pass on and share your knowledge, here is our starting tip:
- Using the “green screen” feature is an easy way to set a specific graphic as a background so your audience has additional context and something to watch
- Do not hold your phone under your chin while filming
- Trim your clips so that there are no “white spaces” in between – children have a short attention span and click off if you speak too slowly
- Use a popular (suitable) song and turn the volume down
- Turn on subtitles or write them down yourself (rule of thumb: never have a clip where you just speak; it has to be words or stickers on the screen)
In the case of stitches, you integrate a section of your video and then react to it. Here is an example:
With duets, you can respond live to a video like this:
Another way to respond to people is to reply to comments with a video. Here is an example:
We hope to see you on TikTok!
