Objectives

This proposal will achieve the following and more:

Expansion of the DASH Africa Ambassadors Program Academy (Creation of more content in English and French)

  • 3 DASH conferences in Nigeria
  • Integrating more businesses to adopt DASH as a means of Payment in Nigeria
  • Continuous DASH Meetups and Ambassadors Drive across Africa
  • Seek to make DASH the most adopted cryptocurrency in Africa
  • Publication of 3,000 informative Dash brochures (bilingual) to be shared at events. 
  • Content would be sourced from https://dashafrica.org
  1. Expansion of the DASH Africa Ambassadors Program Academy (Creation of more content in English and French)
This program is currently running successfully, and hasstudents from over 7 countries but still has some limitations. One of this is the need for more professional content for the academy online. The current content were created by Bitbuddy.org. Content translation into French would help us fully reach the Central African Region beginning with Cameroon. We will work with Dash Academy to supplement and co-ordinate our efforts to maximize effectiveness and accuracy of the curriculum
$2,000

2. Partnership with other organizations

We will partner with organizations who share thesame ideology with us and speak at their events. We will do presentations
to the audience and members and have an inquirydesk at the event were people could come for more information.
$1,000 * 4 events = $4,000

3. Publication of 3,000 informative DASH brochures

These brochures would be a guide to newbies onDASH. We hope to reach thousands of people through this.
$3 * 3,000 = $9,000

4. Dash Fintech Conference Lagos

This is a breakaway from the norm. After several events reaching out to mostly students and youths, the Dash Fintech Conference this would be the first conference for professionals. It's high time Dash awareness in Nigeria gets to the industrial players of the economy.

To this end, we plan to host key players fromthebanking industry, Directors of large corporations, and Entrepreneurs at the
Dash Fintech Conference Lagos.

Total $8,030


Part B - Translation, Outreach and Community Development

Objectives:

1. Translation of Dash content to Dagbani
There is a need to translate Dash content to Dagbani, a local language in Dash with over 1 million speakers. This local Dash
school would increase the velocity and massive adoption of Dash in Ghana.

2. Dash Clubs
There are Dash clubs in five schools with the aim of promoting Dash in their respective schools. They would be trained,
equipped and released as Dash ambassadors tofoster individual and merchant adoption of Dash in Ghana.

3. Dash Community Connect
The Dash clubs will have a programcalled"Dash community connect". With this project, we will have a
community which will cover activities such as #Dashfestival where Dash block chain technology will be explained in local dialect
to the entire community members. This would be a Dash-only event and all transactions will be strictlyin Dash.

4. School - Media Connect-
With this, we will be engaging the media houses, especially the local media houses to train its presenters and they will
further help promote dash on their variousprograms and other platforms. We will also have at least two local interviews
on Dash block chain technology.

BUDGET

TOTAL = $28,500

Total $28,500 at $410/Dash (Current Price +5% Volatility Buffer)  = 69 Dash
Remuneration = 2 Dash
Escrow Fee = 4 Dash
Risk Fee = 5 Dash
Proposal Fee = 5 Dash
Total = 85 Dash
Remaining Funds From BADA Phase 1 = 13 Dash

Grand Total = 85 Dash - 13 Dash = 72 Dash

Conclusion

The objective of this proposal is to take Dash from a “speculative asset” to a “cryptocurrency with utility” in Africa. Once
more businesses and schools are on-boarded and conferences are completed, benefits will be obvious and demand will grow. People of Africa will demand Dash for their transactions as it solves many problems with their national currency, including portability, security, and perpetual inflation. We will make Dash ubiquitous in Africa with high utility and velocity - with its greater security, medium-of-exchange and store-of-value properties than legacy currencies.

The standard of the work is very low and website has spelling and grammatical errors and low quality images. Creates a bad impression of Dash in Africa. Please always use spell check before posting.

Thanks for pointing them out.

The low images are pictures of meetups by different groups under Dashy Africa, however, we'd replace them with high quality images soon, and the grammatical errors would be taken care of also.

Thanks again.

These guys are some of the hardest working guys in Dash. I really hope whomever it is that votes last second take that into account. I know it's not a big money maker for the network NOW, but think 5 years from now, when Dash has taken over Africa as the #1 payments system, and all of Africa becomes the #1 growing economy in the world (think China only 40 years ago) And Dash at the forefront of the payments industry. Not only will we get a great foothold because of guys like we have in this team, but we can change the world! And Africa will grow with no Governmental strings attached! (then we'll all want to move to Africa, and they will have to ban immigrants, LOL - payback!)

The picture seems to throw off the editor and limits the space available.
I've edited the content to be able to show the complete proposal.

Will vote YES if you kindly fix the "projects" button on your website, which leads to a broken link, as well as fix the typos on DashAfrica.org. Thank you.

Hello,

Thanks for your observations.

Dashafrica.org is been revised immediately to ensure all typos are corrected.

The Instant Karma Fund website is not under the reach of Dashy Africa.

Thanks.

Marketing and breaking into poor economies shouldn't be paid by DASH treasury imho, rather these markets and economies should be paying to switch over to DASH

"Paxful, one of the largest peer-to-peer (P2P) bitcoin marketplaces in the world, has reported that its monthly bitcoin volume in Africa is now around $40 million, traded primarily via gift cards. In addition, African nations are now among the company’s most active locations, with Nigeria and Ghana being the second and third largest markets respectively for Paxful (only following the world largest economy, the United States)."

https://news.bitcoin.com/p2p-market-paxfuls-reaches-40-million-in-monthly-bitcoin-volume-in-africa/

The African economy isn't poor. Our goal is to switch the high volume of Bitcoin trading to DASH. Currently, Africans use DASH on issues ranging from cell phone recharges to e-commerce and also pay for importations.

Africa is a big opportunity for DASH.

P.S. The account above is for Paxful alone not including African Bitcoin transaction volumes on other platforms.

I love the work you all have done with the students and would love to see you all continue. For certain, you are ambitious! Always posting a lot of updates (do some official updates on the dash.org forum to keep everyone informed please. Is the cost of Dash brochures correct though? $3 per brochure? Are they books? Anyway, hope you get this and that the conferences and classes and videos turn out well!

The brochures are book-like. They'd contain necessary information about DASH, where to get DASH and how to spend it.

Cost is $3 per brochure.

Thanks for your support.

voting YES. Impressed that you guys are already rocking out the new T&C logo in the photo.
Impressed with the "Dash content" into Dagbani (I gather this covers Dash basics and wallet operation basics).
Your further objectives look good.
Genuine efforts to get Dash into "hands" about the African continent is something I can support for sure.
