Benefits for Dash’s Network
  • Entering the root of the productive and commercial chain of agribusiness ensures the adoption of DASH in a sector with a high circulation of fiat currency
  • DASH will be helping to fix an old problem: individual farmer can't access high tech to manage their crops (today is too expensive). Now people may have access to analytics service by not depending on banks, industrial monopolies, or governments! and will be able to pay for a cheap service that will allow them to improve their crops and reduce the use of environmental pollutants. More food and less expensive!
  • The AgroCognitive project will carry out training workshops (and attend to agro fair/expo) with farmers’ trade associations to teach the benefits of using DASH as real cash, not only to pay for AgroCognitive services, but also to buy materials and supplies among their community
  • We will motivate agribusiness customer paying to their suppliers (small farmers) with DASH. 
  • Following AgroCognitive roadmap planning, ONLY with two crop’s types by July 2019 we will complete 50K transactions payments in DASH (equivalent of 600K USD)
  • AgroCognitive already have reached out to Dash Core to arrange an exclusivity agreement for three years. DASH will be the only one cryptocurrency accepted and the only payment method during that exclusivity period
  • DASH will have all branding exposure and be the core of a project that was awarded as "The solution will change the lives of people in Latin America" and be the brand behind the technology that will revolutionize the new food economy in emerging countries
Benefits for Dash’s DAO
  • Although the company Dash DAO Ventures not fully completed, AgroCognitive’s team is committed to offering to DAO a shareholding in the project
  • Once AgroCognitive start operations, any key decision in the business will be consulted with the DAO through a proposal
Project Roadmap ‘s main updates
  • AgroCognitive’s team did a workshop for the top 6 Venezuelan sugar cane processing factories to obtain their support for development and test and adopt Dash in agribusiness ecosystem. Watch this video (set captions to english)

I want to remind my fellow MNOs that this project would have been funded previously, but some of you sent your votes in too late to be counted. This is a great team we've been working with steadily and the first willing participant in Dash Ventures when it's ready. They're a professional team with a great product that has the potential to expand to the entire LatAm region and greatly benefit Dash. They're not asking for much, relatively speaking, and have gone above and beyond to modify their proposals to the benefit of Dash as well as doing a lot of work on their own to educate other businesses about the benefits of utilizing Dash. So keep that in mind when you look at the funding request, which is partially to catch up from going unfunded the last time they requested funding due to MNO error.

Please don't let that happen again to a faithful partner with our network with a lot to offer moving forward.

Thank you Arthyron for your support and to clarify that our project has adapted to the challenges of the Dash DAO.

We have been resilient to re-plan, to advance, to show achievements, to show respect in this community, asking to MNOs for every key decision, avoiding to look selfish or a budget's predator.

The AgroCognitive's team is committed to the scope of this project and to fulfill what we have promised the Dash community. And every time we have a meeting with farmers, businessmen and food's merchants, we confirm that the impact on the food's chain is tremendous and exciting.

We know that in this cycle the MNOs have a great challenge in their hands, we trust that you will make the best decisions for the Dash network.
