Imagine that you decided to do a car rental service with discounts that are given by a blockchain. 3 years you made a product, announced its to people through social networks, spent your money and energy. Then comes the company “Mickey Mouse business,” which offers barter.
They could read on your website or in social networks that you provide discount cards that allow one to rent cars at a lower price.
“Mickey Mouse business” offer you to exchange for their color expensive TVs, inside which there are games and other entertainment.
Show you their boxes.
Flaunt with their experience in this direction, boast of participation in expensive exhibitions and publications, which they ordered in expensive media.
They are for some reason supported by professionals in the field of marketing. Everything at first seems normal.
They slip the contract, which does not prohibit giving by your car rental service their colorful boxes. Well, otherwise, why does the director of the rental of 1 000 000 boxes needs color TVs ?!)
You signed a contract, exchanged: you give them a million discount cards for a cheaper car rental, they give you a million boxes with supposedly color TVs and entertainment inside)
You agreed that each of you can sell no more than 100,000 units, which you exchanged.
Rent distributed the first batch of boxes of color TVs to their employees.
Then he tried to sell part of the Second hand store.
But then that office “Mickey Mouse business” opened its stalls in a large shopping center with great traffic and signs.
People began to resent why in the boxes were not the promised color televisions with entertainment, but dull black and white TVs and tinsel.
Why on the pre-order it was so expensive, but now everything costs a cent, and even for a cent, no one sells anything.
When will the real promised color TVs with entertainment appear?!
Imagine the surprise of the public, when the director of the office “Mickey Mouse business” publicly from the pedestal said that the car rental service with their discount cards is to blame for everything!
Nobody could understand the connection between the “Mickey Mouse business” office, the low price of the boxes, the lack of demand for these boxes and some other company from another industry.
The main claims of the director of the office “Mickey Mouse business”, as well as his buffoon, consisted in the fact that allegedly discount car rental cards are sold only in Second Hand stores.
The director of “Mickey Mouse business” ignored the information that discount car rental cards are sold in a nearby shopping center, and not only in Second Hand, where the boxes of TVs “Mickey Mouse business” were also sold.
The owners of the boxes with the TVs still could not understand the connection between the Mickey Mouse business office, the low price of the boxes, the lack of demand for these boxes and some kind of car rental company from another industry. Customers of the “Mickey Mouse business” crowded in the shopping center next to the stall “Mickey Mouse business”, trying to return the defective goods or sell it to people passing by.
The people asked the director of “Mickey Mouse business” in how many months or years in the boxes will be promised color televisions with entertainment, rather than dull black and white TVs and tinsel.
He bleated something about renting a car and about the fact that he was all deceived, and he himself is D’Artagnan.
The director of the rental service came to the office of “Mickey Mouse business,” and offered to immediately exchange everything, except for the few boxes that had previously been donated to his emploees and sold through the Second Hand store, as was supposed by the previously signed contract.
But the director of the Mickey Mouse business spit on the contract and repeated his mantra. Then he drove the director of the rental service and told all his clients that the director of the rental service does not want to change back.
According to the director of “Mickey Mouse business,” the boxes did not contained the promised color televisions with entertainment, but dull black and white TVs and tinsel, because the director of the rental service put it there.
The crowd began to guess something.
They whispered that they saw and heard how the director of the rental service offered to change back, but the director of the Mickey Mouse business spent all the time trying to find out the address of the neighboring shopping center and criticize the Second Hand stores, where his own boxes were also sold.
In general, with his chatter and his clown, he distracted people from real problems, but still he realized that he would soon be beaten and, possibly, kicked.
While he was lying to people from the stage, sang fables, the director of the rental service went to an advertising agency with whom previously cooperated his car rental and the Mickey Mouse business.
There he, along with his best lawyer, quietly folded 774950 boxes with black and white TVs and tinsel inside.
These boxes remained lying in the warehouse of an advertising agency, where some other boxes of other companies were gathering dust.
Meanwhile, the director of “Mickey Mouse business,” along with his clown named An Dibello, continued to cackle from the scene that 774,950 boxes with excellent TVs and entertainment spoil sales, prevent him from drinking champagne and eating delicacies. All his thoughts were about the resort and prostitutes. He always thought, when everyone will start to overthrow car rental, and leave the “Mickey Mouse business” alone. But the customers were not stupid people and they understood everything)
