Proposal description

The Crypto Show has officially teamed up with Chuck Williams former lead UIX developer for Dash Core to bring Dash to the masses.  The Crypto Show is moving out of the echo chamber of crypto media and into major markets to reach actual new users.  We have been invited to join 4 major 5000 Watt AM stations in four of the largest markets in the country.  We’ve already taken on a new show in Phoenix Arizona that focuses on an intro to Crypto.  We educate the listeners on general terminology and Crypto as well as wallet set up.  We utilize Dash and its features to introduce crypto to people.  Most of our listeners have no experience with cryptocurrency and we want their first experience to be with Dash.  Callers who set up wallets get free Dash and beginner training classes.  We’ve already had tremendous success creating meet-ups in the Phoenix area.  I’ve included weekly informal meetings at a local pizza shop that accepts Dash.   I encourage the listeners to come out after the show to meet us for a basic intro.  
Dash Denver Meetup
I think we all know Crypto is a gateway drug to liberty and these stations have provided "the show with an important bridge to an older but enthusiastic segment of society that most crypto projects overlook.  We've already had great success here in Phoenix from listeners showing up to the class for info. One such case was a 70-year-old woman named Yvonne who came out to learn. If Evolution is the Grandma button this is a great way to let grandma know about Dash.We are taking our new model and running with it.  These are the stations we will be joining soon with the Dash network’s help.  Each city represents a fee we have to pay weekly to get broadcast and that is all we are asking for from the network is to pay our broadcast fees.  We feel this is a mutually beneficial arrangement as our footprint grows so does Dash’s.

These stations will all be a little more technical since this crowd already understand the basics of business in trading and should have a higher level of understanding but just haven't pulled the trigger on Crypto yet.  Especially our coverage over the whole Bay area where many tech savvy people reside but may not know of Dash yet.  It’s likely these listeners would be larger investors into crypto currency's and would more easily understand the necessity of a DAO and the overall upside of Dash itself.  All four Bloomberg shows will actually Air at different times.  We will record live from the earliest show to be replayed to the other stations. We will be reaching out to local meet ups and other crypto sources to get listeners information and tutoring for setting up wallets and getting their first Dash. It's also highly likely that the listeners of Bloomberg business news might also be business owners. We will incentivize the listeners if they own a businesses to accept Dash by offering on air plugs and free promotion of their business.

The show has always been excited to partner with the network and we feel this time is no different.  Adoption and investment is the key to Dash’s longterm success and this is a way to foster both by introducing people to crypto through Dash instead of bitcoin.  The show as always is entertaining and informative and like always strives to place Dash in the mind's of all of our guests.   We feel we have been great ambassadors for the brand over the years and have exposed many thinkers in crypto to take a look at Dash We hope to continue to do so with your help.

Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?

This is a no-brainer considering that it only covers broadcast fees. Hopefully the price returns to a level soon that allows for more than that. Good voice content is great for people who can't sit at home all day on the computer and research crypto.

Definitely yes. Danny, it'd be good if you were more braggadocious in your proposal about all the things you do for Dash through your networking efforts.

I got into crypto after hearing about it on the radio. Will be great to keep Chuck in the dash ecosystem. Hopefully this can keep expanding to more and more places. Easy yes for Danny.

Thank you so much for the vote of confidence. Hopefully on this journey will also have more opportunities to interact with the community like we did at the recent Denver Dash Meetup.

I don't know a lot about the radio industry. While there is a cost to opening up to new markets, I imagine it is an opportunity to monetize as well.
Is there a plan to monetize the content so as to not rely on treasury funds?
1 point,11 days ago
Yes we do hope to add additional sponsors. Not other coins but other services in cryptocurrency that would mesh with Dash. Such as Edge wallet, shape-shift, purse. IO and we don't have deals with them but those are the types of services we would consider. We hope to keep the show Dash Centric even though we interview multiple people from all over the industry we try to bring the conversation back to Dash wherever possible. In the last cycle due to price I actually had to dig in my pocket for the air time. I'm sure you can ask anyone that's worked with us we go well over and above just putting on a radio show. In the pursuit of content I've been using press credentials to access multiple conferences we're doing interviews and I'm always wearing Dash hats or shirts and I always bring the conversation back to Dash when interviewing people. Should this pass we intend on continuing that effort.

I believe I've met you before at a conference and left with a good impression. I have no concern there.
I encourage you to explore additional monetization avenues with which to organically grow your reach. Voting yes now, but as your reach grows and presumably the budget, I will find it it more difficult to vote yes when I know the same amount can go farther in Venezuela.
