Proposal description

Thank you very much for reading this proposal again which is a resubmission of www.dashcentral.org/p/10-Video-Tutorials which was approved for March 2017 but was deleted during the 12.1 update.  Would you vote again yes again on this new proposal to help me make a series of videos that I hope will be helpful to educate and promote new members of our community?

gobject vote-many 4b9c696c9ee85ea9b07baf92e8b28c36394fd1c9161fcacd65b9f8cc0347ae52 funding yes

I just uploaded the first two tutorials at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiT_3c8vABg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPvoDmHw4fU.

When you vote yes, I agree to make 10 screen capture tutorials about Dash all with a common theme averaging 5 to 10 minutes each in length AND combine those into one "Beginner to Advanced" master tutorial which will take a complete beginner into the middle of our community AND upload those on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/jerrybanfield.  After watching Amanda B. Johnson's videos in her Dash Detailed show, I was inspired to make this proposal which I hope compliments her show and brings more enthusiastic members to our community!

Why screen capture video tutorials?  Video tutorials are the most powerful way I know of online to get people to learn WHY to use Dash and immediately follow that up with HOW to get started.  You are here with me today because I have two friends that sold me on WHY Dash is awesome.  When I was ready to learn HOW to get started, I looked for video tutorials to help me get started with the basics of setting up a wallet and hosting a masternode.

Even with intense motivation to get involved, it took me weeks of Googling, reading, getting frustrated, giving up, and coming back to try again in order to get my masternode setup.  I am grateful Perry Wooden with Node40 had great tutorials on his website AND took the time to chat with me personally right when I was having trouble getting my masternode to launch.  How many potential Dash users have we lost because of this painful getting started process?  How many new Dash users can we convert in the future with video tutorials that make everything look easy?

Video tutorials can not only making joining the Dash community easier but also are perfect to explain WHY Dash presents an amazing opportunity today.  For example, if you hire me make 10 new video tutorials for you here, I could combine them into one master tutorial called "The Best Investment Opportunity for 2017." In this one video, I can show why buying 1,000 Dash and setting up a masternode offers all of the benefits of investing including dividends and huge return potential with little of the downside because the assets are liquid.  In 10 individual tutorials, I can then show every step from changing any government currency into Dash to launching a Dash wallet to putting a masternode online to voting yes on all my proposals. 

What experience do I already have making Dash video tutorials?


In January 2017, I made the world's first Dash HD video class online with 16 HD videos featuring over an hour of screen capture tutorials at https://jerrybanfield.com/freecourses/ in link #43.  The class features tutorials on all of the basics of getting started with Dash through making budget proposals and getting a masternode.  Here is what the first two student reviews said:

"Great tutorial about Dash! Really helped me get a feel for what makes DASH special compared to other cryptocurrencies. Being a crypto newbie, I'm absolutely going to have my own Master Node!" -- Reuben Valles
"Excellent class. I created my Dash wallet successfully following the class step by step. This is something I would never have done on my own. I have learned in the class all I need to know about Dash and how it is different from Bitcoin, and created my first Dash address."  -- Michel Gerard

Costs: 29 Dash total!
2 Dash per new video tutorial times 10 new videos = 20 Dash
4 Dash for the master tutorial which will include all 10 video tutorials plus intro, outro, and transitional videos to connect all the tutorials together.
5 Dash for the proposal cost

Summary!
For 29 Dash, would you help build an educational resource that will assist in converting more potential Dash users into passionate community members like me?  After I have already done the work to prove I can make video tutorials people enjoy about Dash, would you vote yes on this proposal to hire me to make 10 more of these video tutorials AND put them all up for free on YouTube as well as in the class?

Vote YES with

Thank you for reading this and I value your feedback on this proposal!

Sincerely,

I'm sorry Jerry i vote no, i just don't think your knowledgeable enough to make tutorials about Dash in general. If this proposal passes I suggest you run your scripts by one of the core devs, or first ask some opinions in the slack ?

So if you make a mistake in one of your video's you will only change it if you get payed ? That just backwards to me ....

I uploaded the videos before getting paid because I was so excited about them and now am editing the encryption tutorial today before this goes through as well. I asked to change the votes to yes with the understanding I will change the video as well.

It looks like the Facebook ads proposal will pass also which has motivated me to clear my schedule to do the new Dash encryption tutorial!

The first two videos are up now and I have 3 more I already finished filming on my computer! I am working on doing a "masternode start to finish" complete tutorial. Would you either view the videos to learn more or vote yes to get those last few votes in? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiT_3c8vABg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPvoDmHw4fU.

After reading my proposal again today, I just edited it to try to better explain the value I am hoping to bring to our community here. I am hoping to make videos which will be a compliment to the Dash Detailed videos Amanda does. With her videos and mine available on YouTube on Dash, I would guess there would be good crossover with some people finding the ones I do first and then watching hers as well as people finding hers and then watching mine. The more we can educate about why Dash is awesome, the more we can bring enthusiastic community members straight in with their time, money, and creativity!

On the one hand it sounds like there's a lot of potential crossover with Amanda's plans to get into details on ... erm .. dash detailed but on the other 135,906 subscribers?!?

I've not yet looked at your page but what has gotten you that many subs? What have you been putting out on YT before this prop? Was it all crypto related?

Meth thank you very much for commenting here! What I hope to provide is a compliment to Amanda's videos by showing the inside of how I use Dash and what opportunities in Dash are available for new members of our community! On YouTube I have uploaded over 1,300 videos including partnering with others to make a few viral videos and making many of my own free tutorials on subjects that I use in my business. You can see the videos on my channel in order of views at https://www.youtube.com/jerrybanfield/videos?view=0&flow=grid&sort=p

Another fun 10 video tutorial series I could do would be

Top 10 Bitcoin Myths Busted and Solved

This naturally would feature logical opportunities to convert to Dash in areas such as anonymous transactions, instant payments, and investing with a masternode. A complete video including all 10 tutorials in one would provide a very powerful way to convert existing Bitcoin users into at least trying Dash.

Here are a few ideas I have for making all 10 of the tutorials about.

Masternode investment from zero knowledge of crypto through having an operational masternode in 10 easy steps.
Anonymous transactions online with cash and Dash with no prior Bitcoin experience.
Participating in the Dash budget starting from no Bitcoin or Dash experience through receiving funding.

None of these are currently available anywhere else in full meaning all the information someone would need in one place without having to spend hours Googling and looking through documentation, watching videos hosted on different websites, and generally working through all of the disconnected areas. I only went through this process because of knowing the founder of Wall of Coins and my friend Albert who works with Wall of Coins.

While I could learn about each part individually, this series of video tutorials will allow anyone to start from no knowledge of crypto and get into using Dash even with never having used bitcoin. We currently have no videos and no documentation I am aware of to convert from start to finish without first requiring the user to learn about Dash or the basics of crypto independently. Everything currently available must be combined into other areas or requires spending hours reading which most people are not going to do without seeing how it all fits together.

Yes ten individual screen capture tutorials plus one combined video of all 10.

I've looked at some documentation available on the Dash forums and website. Think it is very clear and well after the website is updated.

Much easier to find information about Dash / Dash Master Node today than when I put up my Master Node 3 years ago :)

My vote is a 'no' this time, and to dash value is likely to increase until the Proposal ends.

Wish you good luck!

Thank you for encouraging me to make comments replying to what you have shared here! You are right the documentation was good enough for me to get a masternode running after hours of research and 20 years of experience spending an average of 8+ hours daily online. What I hope to do with the tutorials is make information about Dash more accessible to the public and easier to consume all in one viewing especially for those ten and twenty years older than me with a lot of money and never having heard of Bitcoin or Dash.
