So, the past couple of days have been awash with stories about Atlantis Market’s aggressive marketing campaign, complete with ‘cutesy’ Youtube video advertisement. At the time of writing this, the video was closing in on 30,000 views. Here it is, in case you missed it:
Atlantis did contact me to let me know this was coming a few weeks ago and put me in touch with the guy/gal (pretty sure it’s a guy) they hired to make the video. I interviewed him (and got a sneak peek at two videos) but unfortunately he wasn’t quite as chatty as the Atlantis founders, so I never got around to posting about it.
But now that the whole damn thing is going viral, I might as well put it up so that I have something new to say. So here it is.
What position do you have with Atlantis? Tell me a bit about it – full time/part time?
Marketer is how they advertised it. Really I’m just making some videos for them. Instructional video on how to use, and a promotional video. Just a part time gig.
How are you being paid? BTC/LTC and by the hour or by output?
BTC per output
Where did you see the position advertised?
On their reddit ‘AMA’ post
What did you say in your application?
I sent them a sample video
What attracted you to the position?
Something different. I do video and web freelance work just sounded interesting and something that I would like to support.
Are you a user of any of the black markets?
Yes I use SR some to buy small quantities of Marijuana
What do you think of Atlantis as compared to Silk Road?
Atlantis looks nicer, has nicer features, just needs more sellers and buyers
What does Atlantis hope to achieve by having you on board?
I guess to gain wider use.
Sorry for the short answers, I am so sick with a cold right now, let me know if you would like me to expand on anything. I just feel like crap right now.
