Proposal description

"The Digital Cash Evlution" by The Crypto Show Expands to 4 Major Markets Miami, Houston And San Francisco On Bloomberg Business News.Phoenix on Independent Talk (Conservative News)

The Crypto show is moving out of the echo chamber of Crypto media and into major markets to reach actual new users. 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. 

Independent Talk Independent Talk is a conservative talk network on 1100 AM KFNX that boasts the largest signal in the state of Arizona (50,000 watts) covering the majority of the state, an area of 3.2 million people, with an average of 60,000 listeners. We air during afternoon drive from 4 to 5 PM so we do have the peak amount of listeners.  The station boasts some of the biggest names in conservative radio like Laura Ingrahm. Michael savage, Joe Walsh and the NRA’s Dana Loesch. As the network likes to point out in the intro before each show KFNX it's affiliates and it's advertisers may not share the views of the hosts, guest or callers of the show.The same can be said for our views of other shows our beliefs probably don't align with any other show on this network, that being said I think we all know Crypto is a gateway drug to liberty.  This station has 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 ($450) 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 and a little buffer for on air coin give aways. We feel this is a mutually beneficial arrangement as our footprint grows so does Dash’s.  

Bloomberg Business Radio Channels KDOW 1220 AM San Francisco ($450) KTEK 1110 AM Houston ($450) WZAB 880 AM Miami ($450) 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. 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 three Bloomberg shows will actually Air at different times. I 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.  We hope you will allow us to work for you again. 

Sincerely,The Crypto Show Team

Just an update. We were expecting to go live on Bloomberg on the 16th of this month but we are waiting on corporate contracts. As soon as that is done we will go live. On the upside this has given me time to evaluate Phoenix as a good option. We may actually be better off in Denver where Chuck and I can actually do it in studio. I will have all that information in a few days and make another update then.

Hello MasterNode Owners and Dash supporters! Chuck Williams here. I have committed to join Danny on this show, and I hope you can support this effort. As of tomorrow, I will no longer be contributing to Dash Core Group, Inc. efforts. Don't worry! I think it's probably a good directional move for both Core team and myself. Watch the Dash Force News, 3 Amigos podcast tomorrow for more information!

Hey, if this gets Chuck and Danny on the air for Dash, I'm all for it. And again, this is a very inexpensive proposal that still fits.

I have concerns that Danny has forgotten Dash is his sponsor. Here's an example: On the cannabis road trip that Dash funded, this video shilling Tokes and no mention of Dash or Alt36. No new adoption or even leads as far as I'm aware came from the trip and from the video it is evident why. Did he even mention Dash to the dispensary? NO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU0YtMG4P98

It's bad enough to get no results, but if the video is any indication, I'm not sure he even discussed Dash.

And this post from earlier this month bagging on Alt36 solution "since it doesn't work yet" (false... two integrations had already been announced). https://twitter.com/TheCryptoShow/status/1005245157338312704

Why do we want to keep being a sponsor to someone who is openly promoting other solutions and actively dismissing our own with false information? This is unprofessional at best and we're being duped at worst. Does know one else care that this is going on? I see no comments about it!

In a crowded space and mindscape, the competition for relevancy must extend beyond hardcore Dash fans. However, I agree that the fact that this show is a Dash sponsored effort should be touted.

One thing I love about these interviews is that it is nearly impossible to get to this level of depth on regular radio, and maintain any kind of relevant thought space & attention longer than a 5-9 minute window (commercial interruptions, tightly regimented timelines, immobile slots, etc.).

One of my goals with my participation in/contribution to this effort is to discuss with Danny & implement methods that improve service to the Dash MNO community, and also increase relevancy to the general crypto, financial, investment, and developer audiences.

I also expect to leverage my relationship with Fernando & Dash Core Group to coordinate marketing & strategic efforts.

Open to additional suggestions, and if you would like to ask more about it on the Dash Force News 3 Amigo's podcast today at 3PM EST, I'll try to keep an eye on the chat thread.

Actually I've been begging them to work with us to promote them in Phoenix on that radio show which has a reach of almost the whole state of Arizona, you know where they have a money transmitter's license. And I have multiple leads I turned over to them at the Southwest cannabis conference last year. I have a video I was trying to put together to talk about Cannabis and Crypto in which I wanted to highlight alt36 but all I get is crickets. Yes I'm pissed off at their lack of interest in us trying to promote them. The only way to even get them to answer a message is to tweet something that puts them on the spot. I tirelessly promote Dash in ways that you don't even know about that are well over and above what is outlined in my proposals. Me putting them on the spot is just trying to get some level of participation out of them.
The other platform that I talk about Tokes uses an ATM/POS that has Dash on board already. Once this machine gets deployed in more dispensaries we will already have the tools to push Dash integration.
Tokes is on the Waves platform and I've talked to the CEO about moving to Evolution as soon as it's available.
I also talk to him about possibly working with Alt36 but how can I possibly help build that relationship when I can't even get a response out of them.

Cause and effect. I am not surprised they would be unwilling to collaborate or go on the show if you are actively disseminating inaccurate negative information about their product. I wouldn't trust you either. Take some ownership.

Danny is one of the biggest unsung heroes of the Dash movement repping Dash. I would have voted yes anyway because I love the work Danny does for Dash including http://dashcares.com but I'm happy to see Danny adding extra value and expanding outreach with "Bloomberg Business Radio Channels". Not all superheros wear capes, but I can assure you Danny is a true blue Dash fan and a respected legend on the crypto-circuit. I'll post a link to DFN video interview when it's uploaded. Keep an eye out, it's a good one!

"Bloomberg Business Radio Channels" - For 30 Dash a month! Can anyone do better than that? Why would anyone vote NO? Danny and the Crypto Show are proven Dash assets!

Danny has been a Dash supporter for a long time. Paula and I have traveled to New Hampshire for Porcfest, and it is no surprise to find Danny here. Please support this proposal. The price of 30 Dash can easily fit in our budget.

Danny is a great asset for Dash and I love what he's doing, but with the tight budget and the crypto market in it's current state, I have to view this as non-essential. It's a hard no for me

If anything else falls through on the budget hopefully you'll support me. I know you have in the past.

You do great work, and not only for Dash and the industry as a whole, but also in helping those in need, which I believe should always be the chief motivation of the DAO. If there's room in this budget cycle, I'm glad to sling votes your way.

I've met lots of people in the crypto-currency world that bring up Danny and have a story of how he has made an impact and is an enjoyable person. That's the extra step that is needed that closes the deal and recruits new people to our cause. Great Job!

The Crypto Show is great. I've aired their show for years on LRN.FM. Voting YES because this is the kind of thing that DASH should be doing with a good chunk of the budget - advertising to reach average people.

30 dash is a steal for what Danny brings to the table. If Core was as dedicated and hard working on growing adaption and investment as Danny is than we would be over the 10 billion marketcap again

Sorry, I was helping Danny edit the proposal and I was still logged in as him. That's why its seems weird that he's commenting on his own proposal. But I know Danny very well and stand by my comment.
