Most people will more likely than not use BitcoinTalk to find out all the (new) information about an altcoin they take an interest in. Unfortunately, BitcoinTalk is becoming a kid’s playground lately and the forums are a bit cluttered. Several altcoin communities end up creating their own forums, which is a good solution to some extent.
Especially when you look at the SysCoin or Darkcoin forums for example, you can see they are buzzing with activity, information and fun. Other coins see a lot of interest at first, when then drops off as more time expires. It is hard to keep users motivated to use an alternative forum for a specific coin compared to just checking the BitcoinTalk thread, where most, if not all information will end up eventually.
Aero is a smaller altcoin community, and they also have their very own forum, called AeroTalk. The forum itself runs smooth and the design is pretty decent. Don’t expect too many fancy images or graphics just yet, as AeroTalk only launched recently.
What I like about AeroTalk is how it incentivizes people to keep coming back and posting new replies, topics and even spread reputation. While these are all standard things you would expect from most forums, there is no real “reward” for doing so, except a “feeling good” moment, that is.
AeroTalk distributes AeroX to community members for creating new posts, polls and topics. AeroX is the official “AeroTalk currency” , and is worth exactly the same as a “regular” AERO coin. Just signing up on AeroTalk gives you 100 AeroX. For a full list of the AeroX reward system, click here.
By saying 1 AeroX is equal to 1 AERO, you are actually earning Aero coins for participating on AeroTalk. Users can exchange AeroX to AERO through the forum’s AeroX Marketplace. Exchanges from AeroX to AERO can be done for either 1,000 AeroX or 4,000 AeroX. Why 4,000 AeroX, you might ask? Quite simple, you will receive 5,000 AERO for spending 4,000 AeroX because of a 20% discount as part of the special offer program.
The AeroTalk owners recently held an interesting promotion,where every registered member of the forums who is Level 2+ received 300 AeroX, completely free of charge. The reason of this promotion was because of the Aero marketing push.
Note from the author : In order to achieve level 2+ on AeroTalk, you simply need 20 posts or more. Do try to keep the AeroTalk forums spamfree though.
