Proposal description

Hi guys, our first time renewing the DASH support for our meetings. It has been a great series of events thanks to DASH, it has really motivate its members to invite more people into the meetings and learn about DASH.


Although our group is really about all Cryptocurrencies, DASH has gained it's spot and growing supporting followed. Having DASH presence has given a lot of newbies a natural drawn to learn more and more about DASH. We have been holding this meeting for 2 years and have seen it grow to a significant amount. However we are still in the process to make a difference in the local businesses and environment.

Our program of DASH for Drink, where people get their consumption reimbursed at the end of the meeting to get them to install a DASH wallet and sometimes their first new DASH, has been very successful. A lot of non technical people got their first wallet and DASH address and were taught how to receive those DASH through QR code or through the web.

These next 3 months we will get more DASH info, as Amanda B Johnson will be on one of our meetings in April. Also we might have new initiatives from the group about how to promote the use of DASH and other Criptocurrencies here in Cancun, we were lucky enough to attract the right people to make this happened.

Please consider this factor to keep your support of this Local Crypto User group and allow us to enjoy sharing our knowledge of Crypto with the community with a nice Coffee, and Dinner in name of DASH.

Wow, $1600 per month? How many people per month is this seeding for us?

This seems extremely expensive to me. Not scalable. What am I missing here? Seems like how Google throws money at things. Please educate me.

You are missing the price increase.

You mean it's more than $1,600/month? pls explain.

No I mean between the time they submitted it and now they dash price increased. So initially they were not asking for $1600.
And constantly resubmitting whenever the dash price changes isn't a solution.
I really hope they can improve the budget system somehow regarding this.

Oh come on guys, give this a yes vote, don't be cheap! It's only 26 dash and these guys are looking to spread the word! Don't be small minded, people! Think big - but that takes little steps at the start, give these guys a funding!

Thanks everyone for approving our proposal, hope this introduces more people to DASH. This meetings are not done with the purpose of talking about DASH (in a presentation format) but actually using DASH, through reimbursement of drinks and other consumptions while talking about wallets, addresses investment and evolution of money. You can say is more of a workshop than 'a talk'. This has proven to be more effective since people actually get to experience the crypto rather than just consuming information without any guarantees of ever using it.

Had a talk with JZA and it appears to me that this is a proposal for him to cater to his friends at the local pub with no real benefit to the network. No presentation, at a bar where all we know dash is not even brought up in the conversation. Clear misuse of funds, and the people posting here are most likely his friends wanting more free drinks :/

Thanks for the comment.

Well the original purpose of the first proposal was cater the assistens the soft drinks by returning the amount they pay in DASH (https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/bitcuners-meetup-proposal.11863/) we no givent presentation because it was no the prime intention.

We want to introduce to the common people moms, workers, self employed, businessman (but no technical guys, they all ready here) in a simple way, open table, coffee and a friendly talk, then they back home with Dash in they pockets (which is the most important thing and the did) and then they can see for themselves how the "money" grows on their hands, when they come back then we can talk about more deep stuff and given to them a presentation.

Is it true that is not a formal meeting, but is never was intended to, besides we no meet "at the local pub", is a Starbucks they only serve soft drinks like macchiatos and stuff, but the idea of the beer is tempting, thanks for the idea and for the comment :-)

Hola! Thanks to all for vote! As part of the community "Bitcuners" i feel very proud to promote DASH in Cancun, we use the name of "Bitcoin" to make more easy to understand the concept. All the attendees of our meetings were welcome, they learnt about cryptocurrencies and take some DASH back to home. It was very excited to be mentioned at the Dash Detailed (http://dashdetailed.com/2017/01/25/happy-birthday-mr-juggernaut/). Please feel free to check our social media account to know more about the community (in spanish) I hope you vote for the yes, to keep promoting DASH in Cancun, Mexico!! Gracias amigos!!

Sorry due to the 12.1 upgrade, the GUI version of dash central wasn't getting any new proposals and have to be posted through the new http://proposal.dash.org/
Finally got around to 'claim' the proposal.
