Bitcuners is a group of crypto enthusiast that runs a successful meet up for about 2 years bringing together people that want to share or get information about criptocurrencies and blockchain.
Bitcuners have been distributing knowledge at a local and national level by participating in Cryptocurrency events like LaBitConf in Mexico, and Anarchapulco.
It has also organized talks across different universities, workspaces and community centers in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and others.
It has successfully contributed to project such as Bitcoin, NXT, DASH, Solarcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
We have also helped users getting into trading, getting their first crypto and talking about the different coins in the ecosystem.
Have educated people to highlight private information, censorship resistant qualities of the blockchain and the decentralization of everything as well as talks for entrepreneur to build and design ICOs smart contracts and other blockchain properties.
We have 24/7 channels on Telegram and social media where we share articles, books and news for more information about the technology.
With a DASH sponsorship we can increase our reach and appeal to more people so we can carry the awesomeness of cryptocurrencies including DASH to more people locally as well as nationally.
We have detected there has been many crypto-based pyramid scams, where they have successfully acquired a large audience, also we do believe this audience is driven by greed and not knowledge however we want to educate people locally by dedicating time to do traditional media promotion of our group and the information of how cryptocurrencies really work.
We are asking for a small budget of 16 DASH a month to cater to our live meetings and be able to give attendees a more friendly and attractive environment.
Picking up our dinner tap will make our meetings which go from 7.30 to midnight a bit more enjoyable for the majority as well as see how cryptocurrencies are actually a living thing that have real impact in our daily life.
We also planning on using this money by sharing the dash directly to the attendees so they have to do trade in order to get the money to buy their drinks. So is a great exercise of how DASH can be used as digital cash.
Finally if there is a remainder from the budget, we can re-use that dash to run group promotion on local media through the print out of flyers, and such.
We will put the DASH logo on our landing page and link it to the DASH project.

Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?

Be the first to start the discussion!
From our group at least 5 guys are indirectly involved with DASH, or hold DASH.
"It has successfully contributed to project such as Bitcoin, NXT, DASH, Solarcoin and other cryptocurrencies."
"We have also helped users getting into trading, getting their first crypto and talking about the different coins in the ecosystem."
"With a DASH sponsorship we can increase our reach and appeal to more people so we can carry the awesomeness of cryptocurrencies including DASH"
with dash funding hopefully dash will now take a more prominent role. i don't want to be paying for meetups where dash is not the focus at least 70% of the time. maybe the proposal owner could weigh in on his plans. either way i think it is worth giving them a shot but i would rather see this go month to month at first.
i also agree with you and would like to see photos and updates in the forums. too many times proposals get voted in and the marketing/community updates are severely lacking. i don't like having to ask/beg for updates when proposals are getting large amounts of funding. they should be actively engaged like amanda and like dashforce will be.
The way I see it, is not very different from supporting initiatives such as The Crypto Show, or Cryptoverse, where are crypto-focused podcasts (not only dash).
We could, however, put the DASH logo on our sites and list it as a sponsor.
You can see pictures and videos on your Facebook and Meetup.com groups (look for Bitcuners on both). But again, this is not a conference, so even if you see a video, there wouldn't be much to show since is just like a social gathering.
We could make a community video once if that's what's needed. Also IMHO I don't think you can classify this proposal as a 'large amounts of funding'. Is sort of an experiment at this point since I haven't seen proposals like ours that focus on a Crypto-User Groups. I hope more can come.
In the future if this works and the community grow we might ask for a larger funding pot to make a conference or an event that might have people traveling to it and rent a large hall, in that case, yes, I think the diligence of the event would increase as well as the marketing for it.
At the same time, I think is important to have at least 3 month of experiment because I dont think this budget would immediate produce results overnight. At the time of this proposal, we have that 16 dash will give us around 4-3.5 DASH per meeting.
You`d get my votes, at least for the good start :) especially that this month still has some space to go.
