NEW PROPOSAL
5TH DASH CONFERENCE IN CARACAS - VENEZUELA
FEBRUARY 2018


Hello, everyone.

For February 2018, we are getting prepared for the 5TH DASH Conference in Caracas - Venezuela, that will take place on saturday February 24th, in the Pestana Caracas Hotel.

Here you can see our detailed budget:

https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/pre-proposal-dash-conference-venezuela.15285/page-7#post-165465

WHY IS THE BUDGET HIGHER THAN THE ONES BEFORE?
  • Until november, our events' duration were 4 hours, but beginning in december, our events take the entire day, because we do the conference in the morning and the DASH City in the afternoon. This means we have to hire the conference venue all day, and the entire day before, for preparations.
  • We receive more participants, because besides the 600 people we receive in the morning, we also receive around 200 more people in the afternoon, that come to DASH City. This means increase in giveaways, POP and catering.
  • Our team has grown considerably: we have 9 coordinators, 9 assistants, the innovation team is formed by 87 people, 50 entrepreneurs with their asistants, plus the rest of the people who provide services of speaker, panelist, moderator, social media, photography, video, among others. This means more budget for their payments, catering and trainning expenses.
  • For the first time, since January, we are taking into consideration insurance and first aids for the people who participate in any way in our events.
  • Also, we now know we have to hire dedicated satelital Internet services, because venues do not have a strong enough Internet service to support such a big event.
If you have any questions, please let us know!!!

Hello Eugena
I would like to see videos regarding DASH taken from the conference posted on the DASH Caracas youtube channel. Although there is some educational content on the DASH Caracas youtube channel the majority of content is mainly promotional pieces for promoting the conference and other DASH projects in Venezuela. These are interesting but of limited value in actually educating Venezuelan's on how to use DASH that did not attend the conference. If the entire conference is recorded you would already have the content to post on your youtube channel. The content just needs to be edited into bite sized videos on specific subjects associated with DASH. I have spoken to a number of Venezuelan's in Spain non of them had even heard of DASH. I was amazed that they had no idea what DASH was about and they were trying to find ways to remit money home. A conference is a good start however why not publish that content on DASH from the conference so that thousands of other people could benefit from watching your content on DASH on the youtube channel. There is some content but nowhere near enough to educate a beginner to using DASH to make remittances to Venezuela.

- Personality of Entrepreneur -

The proposal owner, Algodon Franelas, presents Dash exceptionally well. Her professionalism is an example of how proposal owners should behave.



- Experience of Entrepreneur -

The proposal owner has delivered on promises in the past.



- Product or Service -

Conferences are a good use of Dash especially for niche issues such as the economic stability of a country, remittances, which this conference conveys well

Venezuela is going through terrible inflation, 700% in 2017. This year will be worse. Dash can literally save lives in this situation.


- Market Characteristics -

There is a benefit to Dash with the acquisition of 600 participants for the conference.



- Financial Characteristics -

There is a clear return of investment from this proposal.

We are voting YES

Please make sure that your budget proposals in the future get created at the start of our Dash voting cycle, not at the very end.
This means planning ahead with regards to getting access to specific hardware (windows computer in your case), in order to create your budget proposal in a timely matter.

Having said all that, i do support this budget proposal. Good luck.

I would make some suggestions:

I think you should do a thorough study of the attendees, since there have been several conferences and I would like to see more metrics such as type of assistants, age, to which they are dedicated, for example if 80% of the assistants are students, I think that It is not the profile, since the profile should be people with purchasing power and people who have businesses where they can establish themselves.

On the other hand, I think you should take advantage of the crypto Petro announcement so that people can understand distinguish between Dash vs. Petro.
And that Dash is 4 years old.

I have also seen very technical explanations, which I think is not the profile of users who have attended. You should focus more on the use of Dash as a currency, to send remittances, rather than as a speculative or investment product.

Venezuela is our experiment and it is showing some results.
Let's keep adding a little catalyst here and there until we get something volatile.
Go for it!!!
I'll stand back and watch for fireworks :)

Thank you, please stay tuned for our reports, where we also talk about what happens with our budget.

For example, we got funding for november and december, and because of the DASH price going up, we didn't have to request funding for January.

You can read our reports here: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/pre-proposal-dash-conference-venezuela.15285/page-7#post-165465

-How many new people per event (or are they returning)
-How much growth per event
-What is the demographic (age, ratio male/female)
-How do people get Dash in Venezuela
-How many businesses accept Dash in VZ

Hello!

I can assure you it is not over confidence. What happened is that my computer (a chromebook) does not support the QT wallet, so I could not submit the proposal with it. I had to wait to have access to another computer with Windows. In the past, I submitted the proposal in www.dashtreasury.com but they are not working anymore.

Regarding your questions:

Over 50 bussinesses accept DASH in Venezuela, thanks to DASH Venezuela's team work. We are putting together this document with information about the vendors who accept DASH in Venezuela, it is a work in progress, but you can check it out here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15IRaueIldIuUc7jfGU_9tGMLDWJxK0XZQy2xRBYGRDM/edit?usp=sharing

To manage the email invitations to our events, we are using MailChimp, and that allows us to segment our mailing lists, so we are able to control that around 60% of our attendees to every event are new.

Growth per event:
*September: 140 attendees / 2 vendors.
* October: 350 attendees / 6 vendors.
* November: 450 attendees / 6 vendors.
* December: 590 attendees / 30 vendors.
* January: 800 attendees / 50 vendors.

People can get DASH in Venezuela using www.dashnearby.com or www.basichange.com. Very soon they will also have www.colibit.io and www.cryptolifex.com

Please, stay tuned to our reports here: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/pre-proposal-dash-conference-venezuela.15285/page-7#post-165465

Thank you very much for your interest, I hope I was able to answer all of your questions, if you have any more, please let me know!
