Our KPIs include on boarding 5,000 Newbies and Wallets, 400 Merchants and Business Outlet, 10 Sales Agent, 5 Online Exchanges and 20 Over the Counter Exchanges with Merchants 24 hours support and value creations achievable in 6 Months. However, we want to create successful stories for Dash in Africa. Learning and sighting current achievements of Dash Venezuela by Eugenialcala, Dash Merchants by AlejandroE and LorenzoReyC and also Dash Columbia by George Donnelly. Please support of transformation plan and grassroots initiatives.

Since November 2017, when this initiative was created DASH HUB AFRICA insight was to teach, educate and empower Africans about the use of DASH as a payment solution in Africa. We have grown predominately Thanks to the Masternodes Network for our continues support, DASH HUB AFRICA currently operates in 8 Africa countries (Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Togo, Ivory Coast, Benin Republic, Ethiopia and Uganda) with Ambassadors and Stalwarts contributing their quota in increasing Dash real case use in Africa.
Nevertheless, Masternodes Network and Dash Community have got issue with identifying which project belong to who from Africa with this in mind, Dash Hub Africa has restructured our plan and re-branded our strategy for easy identification, Increased Merchant onboarding, continue partnership with existing industry players and stakeholders.With our previous strategy not yielding many results, we want to focus on another side of the Cryptocurrency Industry which is Remittances, High Charge Back Ventures and Mobile Money payment for easy liquidity.
Currently Venezuela is in the grips of unstoppable inflation-one of the worst in modern history, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Dash has predominantly grow to replace Bolivar with Venezuela Merchants accepting Dash as a payment option rising over 2,400 according to Dash Business Directory ( a strong team of passionate users on the ground educating communities and vendors about Dash. Dash Hub Africa team have learned from the strategy adopted by the Latin America team and have concluded with the situation ground in Africa that REMITTANCES, HIGH CHARGE INDUSTRY (Hotel, Restaurants and Recreational Centre) and MONEY MOBILE OPERATORS should be our growth focus that will yield better return on Investment to the Dash network. It is expected that through this proposal we can onboard more Merchants and continue creating Real time use case of Dash in Ghana with the focus of becoming self-sustained hence fund our operation through revenue generated from Dash Hub Product and Services.

Friendly reminder to Masternodes: All your votes from last month are cancelled, null and void. Unlike previous months where successful proposals can kind of coast because all their YES vote carry over, this month, THEY DON'T. Please go vote so that we don't leave deserving proposals high and dry. If you are having problems voting, this thread will likely solve your problem, otherwise ask.

The clock is ticking.....17 hours. Let's get after it!

I am surprised that you mention "Betty Place Restaurant is one of our merchant accepting DASH" while is is actually advertized with a Bitcoin-Notice board in their shop window.( look up your own link

Therefore I am changing from YES to NO!

voting YES for this African based proposal also.
C&P comment of mine below:
(currently writing this from New Zealand where acquiring Dash still SUX VERY HARD). What are the MAIN priorities in Africa???.
Here are some priorities I think are most important, and Dash acceptance at retailers ranks lower down the list:

1) On-ramps and off-ramps for Dash to African fiat currencies.

2) Emphasis on Dash as a long term investment (saving/delayed gratification). This would include excellent teaching material/videos online where investors can learn about on/off-ramps from fiat and wallets. Additional: Services such as CrowdNode.

3) Dash trading pairs on as many exchanges as possible, with InstantSend and recognised by the exchanges.

4) Remittance services (Dash specific would be incredible).

5) Merchant acceptance of Dash. (not high on my list)

Hello @ageless

We understand how limited the DAO is due to the bear market and how MNOs have decided to focus the limited fund on areas that matter. We consider our proposal to be the Best for the remaining fund available in this cycle.

Hope you will support us to make Africa ecosystem growth for Dash.

Come on peoples! Lets give Dash Hub a well deserved infusion, please!
2 points,10 months ago

5-6 months is too long.

The bulk of the Dash seems to be spent on "Execution" at various places but there is no links to video or pictures or telling what was accomplished there. Please provide more info on what the Dash was spent on.

I don't see this budget info in this new proposal?
From your last proposal....

August Cycle 2018
31.5 DASH Execution at Ivory Coast 13th September to 29th September 2018.

September Cycle 2018
26.5 DASH Execution at Cotonou, Benin Republic 6th October to 19th October 2018.

October Cycle 2018
27.50 DASH Execution at Lome,Togo (Exchanged to Fiat @$151.50 per Dash)

The last one was over $4000 dollars, the others even more i'm assuming, what did we get for that?

Dear @Mastermined

The timeframe on our proposal was concluded by DASh Hub Africa team due to the bear market situation and chance due to treasury avaliability. We divided the total requested amount by 5 months cycle for us to easily get MNOs fund us during this cycle.

The past funded proposal in August cycle have Good track records and achievements. Kindly read DASH WATCH Complete Report

And documentation on Twitter

In order to make our proposal simple and short to read we decided to submit extract of our complete proposal. Kindly read Full Proposal to get the below Analysis

Thank you! Hope to receive your support. Merry Christmas.

What I don't understand it the need to add new countries. Simply work in one or at max a few and deliver a depth of adoption. Demonstrating this adoption with evidence, is key. Otherwise one will simply assume that you are after the easy, low hanging fruit available in every new place you go to.

To me South America at this point offers a better outcome for the limited Dash Treasury we have.

I do admire the teams determination in continuing when voted down, but also acknowledge, that this probably means they are sitting on a hoarded pile of Dash from previous rounds, that has been used to fund them when they don't get approval. If so they are probably asking for too much.

Hi @CaptAhab

This proposal is for Ghana, Dash Hub Africa is now restructured and focused to grow Dash network in Africa for acceptability, utilities and usability.

Our last funded proposal from DAO in August cycle aimed at expanding Dash into 3 French speaking Africa countries, this proposal before funding generated concerns and comments regarding our expansion strategy MNOs need Results and not Country grow count. So far we have restructured Dash Hub Africa with focus on Individual country and keep hold on country expansion till further notice.

The team is selfless and determined to make the change in Africa payment system, we are not sitting on any hoarded pile of Dash to keep us sustainable even after been defunded 4 times. All our current achievements have been through personal funding and selfless commitment no motivation for any team member the only motivation we have is the change we want Dash to cause in Africa.

I hope this make you understand of current situation and hope to see you support us!

Dash Hub Africa needs your support, Africa needs Dash to grow!

In these lean times, Dash Hub has lost 4 proposals, no funding in 5 months, yet they keep up the pace, doing education, meetups, with their small army of volunteers. Can we please show them some support? Please vote Yes for this modest proposal!

Actually, I'm not sure about exact numbers, could have been more or less, but they've been squeezed out a lot this year and I do hope they can pass this proposal!

This is amazing to me. What a site, I wouldn't have imagined 2 years ago that we would see this rapid level of growth. But here we are. This is another obvious yes for me because we are the first cryptocurrency to have several teams distributed throughout Africa working for Dash! All of our competitors whether it be PIVX, Monero, BCH, BTC all of them lack what we have, the young energy and fire of the up and fast growing populations outside the west, and the financing to stoke that flame.

Other coins are busy fighting over table scraps in western countries where, up until very recently, the volatility and economic chaos that are staples of other countries was not as visible. Countries with strong payment processors, financial institutions and banking magnates that dictate the air of the financial and economic atmosphere. But where are we? 2500 stores in Venezuela. And now we have several teams looking to replicate that success several times over in Africa. Let's give them our full support and vote YES!

I see plenty of progress and documentation. Keep in mind they have continued getting the work done despite getting no funding for the last two Treasury cycles. This is the "do or die" cycle. Given the demonstrated level of commitment and progress, I vote yes.

Thanks for the comment @solarguy. Dear MNOs for the past 2Months we haven't been funded by DAO.
All our current achievements was done through personal funding and selfless commitments...We don't want to jeopardize our progress of work and achievements so far for Dash growth in Africa.
This is a WIN WIN Affairs for Dash and Africa.
Thanks for the support once again!
2 points,11 months ago
I'd like to again encourage MNOs to vote on this proposal because we are lucky to have a team in West Africa who are enthusiastic and want to get Dash adopted in their countries, and it is imperative that Dash gets adopted for use everywhere and anywhere it has the opportunity to do so. These people in African countries are ready to use dash and just need a little more informal infrastructure to get Dash distributed and adopted. Dash only has value, IMO, when people use it. Africa, like South America, is a place that has such a need, and it's need for currency has kept it separated from the rest of the world far too long. I believe our teams in Africa can really get the fires of Dash burning strong. They just need a little support. Lets show them some support finally, please!

Hello Tantestefana! thank you so much for your comment. One day, another Venezuela will be built from Africa and we at Dash Hub Africa will be proud to announce it.

Dear Dash Masternodes

Kindly read through our Dash Watch update for our previous projects from the Network.

In November, We had major integration achieved.

1. add Dash on their exchange for easy access to Fiat for both Users and Merchants.

2. The first Ghanaian Cryptocurrency Exchange Add DASH pairing to BTC and other Altcoin

All of this was achieved through our efforts. We need to continue achieving as we have redesigned our plans and intend achieving better results for the Dash network.

Kindly give us your support and be confident of positive results.
Thank you!

This is not a big ask to keep up education in an areas that could benefit from the use cryptocurrency.

Hello @Realmrhack

Since my initiative started, I can confidently say my activities has got relevant impacts on Dash. My operations has expanded into 8 different Africa countries (Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, Benin Republic, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia) with trained Ambassadors/Stalwart working hard everyday to grow the network in their localities. Also, my previous proposal was defunded due to the bear market situation and not lack of transparency/poor reporting to Dash Watch.

In November 2018, We delayed to submit our progressive report to Dash watch making them to publish Incomplete Update of our work. This was because I was Hospitalized but now we have updated Dash watch and got a drafted report yet to be published. You can view this draft through the link below

Dash Hub Africa remains committed, transparent and highly accountable to the Dash network. We have restructured our plan and focus our massive adoption strategies on Remittances Market, High Charge back Industry (Hospitality and Tourism), Mobile Money Operators for easy Liquidity of Dash to Fiat for both Users and Merchants.

I hope to see you support our grassroots effort in making Dash grow in Africa.

We have spent considerable amount of funds on @ultimatecryptos activities his previpus proposals where rejected by the community due to lack of transparency & poor reportibg with dash watch.

I still have reservations when it comes to @ultimatecryptos proposals, especially in light of his highly suspicous behaviour such as changing the previous proposals tittle to change the narrative.

"New Proposal will be posted soon: "Please Vote down"

After his previous proposal failed he changed the tittle to the aforementioned

Voting NO

I'm not one to be controversial with others in these chats but you are being very unfair with your accusations.

The amount being asked here is not overgenerous to remain a presence in Ghana. The crowds are evident in the videos. For being such a young man I am somewhat amazed by Ultimatecrypto's motivation to continue forward with Dash.

I believe this young man is too valuable for use to lose for this small proposal ask, even in this down market.

Where is the lack of transparency and poor reporting with Dash Watch? I see nothing but posts, they have their own Discord thread, and are desperate for people to LOOK and take an interest in their work. With all the negative FUD you constantly post, I hope people are wising up to you and ignoring you.

@tantestefana if you have nothing credible to add dont bother.

Maybe you should do some due dillegence yourself and READ the reports

Instead of voting emotionaly, and trying to ingratiate yourself to the PO/Community

People rarely like the comments from people who are blunt and straightforward

I've read the report on Dash Watch, I see they are over budget, but who isn't in this market? WHERE are they not providing info on their work? It says there, that they are in communication with Dash Watch:

In communication with us and community

We want to continue growing DASH in Africa, we have recentred our plans to Ghana first and then expand in the future.
