Amazing proposal. Please provide information why you need 7000000. Do you think 6000000 won’t be enough?

Come on, 7M TONs ?! That’s way too much. That can only means that cointelegraph values TON really low. How much this deal would be in dollars exactly?

If the article would be $35k for example, that would value those 7M tokens as $0.005 per TON.

With all my respect to CoinTelegraph , it seems like an attempt to sell their advertising to the Community.
Do we position Free TON as a commercial project that needs such promotion?

For 7 million Crystals, I will suggest Coin telegraph should provide top advertising position to FreeTON.

CoinTelegraph is the top media of high-tech finance and blockchain news. CoinTelegraph has simply cosmic prices for articles… but 7 million Crystals - it seems a lot even for such a world-leading digital media

I would suggest to get rid of all advertising components in this offer. Free TON is not a corporate product that needs advertising. I don’t think it is respecting our values. What we need is a coverage of our community news and explanation of our technological and governance achievements, so other people could gain real knowledge of our community and decide if they want to join and contribute.

Great offer. But, it seems to me that the amount is too large, because at the current exchange rate it is more than $ 7 million. And to begin with, please conduct an AMA session, because many people do not quite understand what you are proposing.

The proposal is good and cointelegraph is a known media, but the budget you need is quite large, for such amount of tokens you should really provide powerful campaign for the Free TON. I guess more details really needed, as some already wrote above - Conduct AMA session with the community for example.

7M+ dollars for advertising? You don’t plan to give at least part of received tons to your audience using some airdrop mechanics?

A very high-quality resource.
You need qualified authors to work with it. Understanding Free TON from the inside :man_student: :woman_student:. The publication of competent articles (high-quality squeeze) will give a very good result.
The price is very high, you need to take into account that TON Crystal (in the future of one year) :chart: 99% will show significant peaks.

Collaboration is always good. But there is some decent framework for such cooperation. Personally, I don’t understand what the community and the project as a whole will get for this amount. Today, at the exchange rate, it is almost $ 10,000,000. Yes, for such a sum, they should not just paint something there, but lay out a plan up to a second.
I see no reason to pay that much for dubious cooperation.

For $ 7 million, I will make for you a personal cointelegraph with blackjack and … )

Лучше продайте 7 млн.кристаллов (или 10 млн$) и разместите рекламу и ценность TON на каждом ресурсе в интернете

That’s good news as cointelegraph is a fintech news site. And it has a lot of users who rely on it to bring important news because it covers the electronic economy and blockchain technology to provide you with the latest news and analysis for the future of money. It would be nice to have Free TON support on this site.
