Proposal description

7TH DASH CONFERENCE IN CARACAS - VENEZUELA
+
1ST DASH DASH MALL IN VENEZUELA


For April 2018, we are getting prepared for the 7TH DASH Conference in Caracas - Venezuela, that will take place on saturday April 28th.

For this event we need USD 66,600.00 --> 130.59 DASH

Besides, we have been reached by the General Manager of [b]C.C. Galerías Los Naranjos[/b]. This is a mall located in one of the nicest residencial sides of the city.

They have asked us to organize 1 Conference + 1 DASH City in their venue, where the participants will be the owners and the managers of their 250 stores, so can experience what it is like to receive Dash and buy with Dash, and so they can be trained in how to accept DASH - Digital Cash as payment, this being the 1st DASH MALL in Venezuela, where all stores accept DASH. This event will take place on Tuesday, April 17th.

For this event we need USD 28,000.00 --> 54.90 DASH

So, adding both events, the full proposal will be of 185 DASH

Algodon, do you have a way to track usage on wallets/Dash you've distributed. I'm very curious about actual traction in Venezuela. Hard to trust the news with anything these days. Thanks for all the hard work.

This is arguably the best use of funds of any proposal. MNOs should vote yes without hesitation.

Remember that your conferences aren't just about the people in the room. Your conferences can reach the entire spanish-speaking world via youtube and dtube. Remember that you are a pioneer and you are leading the way for others to follow you. Yes from me.

Hello Eugenia,
could you also mention to the video team to also ensure the videos clearly shows the screen slides information from the conference. On the conference video you had hosted on your channel I watched I could not see any information on the main screen when it was being presented.

Also consider the 3 hour video is broken down into separate categories e.g. "How to download and install DASH Digital Cash Wallet onto your phone in Venezuela" "What is Digitial Cash" "How to make low cost and secure remittances to Venezuela using DASH Digital Cash" etc then you will also attract thousands of additional searches on Youtube for those keywords. This is a big opportunity for your channel to help millions of Venezuelans learn about DASH from the content in these conference presentations. 40 small x 5 minute videos with tightly selected themes is better than 1 x 3 hour video and you will get thousands of visits from youtube. This massively leverages the conference material to reach a much wider audience with very little additional work. Perhaps just a few days work with a video editor. Make sure they use the keywords for each of the themes for each video. You will get a lot of traffic if you do this from Youtube searches and the searches at the search engines. Make sure to include the word "Venezuela" in all the videos!

The Caracas conferences are really good but I would like to see more on the video recordings of the conferences. I´mentioned this last time and I took a look at the "recording" of the last conference. It was a poor quality recording. The sound was really poor and it was a huge 3 hour video. Few people are going to benefit form that. We need to Leverage these conferences and have the recording high quality and cut up into smaller videos with specific subjects so that it is easier for people to review that have not visited the conference. So far too much emphasis is put on the conference itself and not enough emphasis on the quality material that could be produced from the recordings of the conference. At the moment the quality of the recordings is very poor and it appears nobody is taking the time to break up the recording into separate subject categories to review. We are losing a very great opportunity to leverage the content from these conferences because not much thought is being given to the video content. I would like to see this Eugenia. Many more people can benefit by watching them on Youtube if you had better quality recording and they were edited into separate subject groups. We need to make the most of the money we are investing and I feel we are losing a lot by not paying attention to this.

Great point. They did have one really well-done video for one of their conferences. It would be nice to see ones like that again.
