Proposal description


Dear Dash Community, weare pleased to introduced you the new proposal for Dash Merchant Venezuela. We are still the N°1 project in the world in terms of dash adoption as a payment method. We created the first merchant network for Dash in Venezuela; now, the project is taking a new leadership that will allocate the merchant affiliations in strategic zones that will deliver us a closed ecosystem to control and measure the transactions. Thus, we will be able to set up our new increase transactions strategy.

- WE WILL TRIPLICATE THE TRANSACTIONS IN THIS SPECIFIC ZONE
- WE WILL SEGMENTATE OUR AFFILIATIONS IN ORDER TO CREATE A MORE COMPLETE ECOSYSTEM THAT WILL BENEFIT REMITTANCES
 
6) MNO ADVISORY BOARD
Aspart of the commitment this team have to transparency and confidence, we will be reporting our results to a board of known MNO who will be acting as consultants and pillars of transparency for the dash community to prove that this new leadership inspires confidence and can be trusted.
 
7) DASH WATCH'S INTERVIEW
 
A. Why the tx count is so low?
- In the first strategies of DMV, were about massification and it deliver its purpose that was to give Venezuelans a name known when they hear about Dash. It had a lot of awareness. However, as we affiliate 2500 merchants as a “happy problem” consequence is that a lot of people know about Dash but do not know quite well how to make a purchase, and the related process of paying with Dash. This is why, the new strategy is focused in creating user’s consumer experience in our merchants, that will close the loop and increase tx.
 
B. Are you worry about the tx count?
- More than worried we are focusing our efforts into solving this “problem” that it is normal for the tx to be low at this stage. With our new strategy and ideas, we know that the tx count will rise with the right team and the proper work.
 
C. What assurances can DMV give that this change in leadership is a genuine transition of responsibility?
- As previously stated, our project is going to count on a MNO Advisory Board that will watch for transparency and responsibility from the new leaders to the Dash Community and along with the Dash Watch reports you will be sure that this new leadership is genuine and trustworthy.

Dash Watch interview with the Dash Merchant Venezuela Team covering questions such as how would you respond to the statement "Venezuela is too politically and economically unstable to be a viable location for Dash adoption,” How can the DAO be sure accounting will be accurately recorded and presented moving forward? And, what would you say are the most important lessons you have learned from running a Dash funded proposal?
This video is an in-depth Q&A with 25+ questions covering a wide range of topics and is a must-see for any Dash community member interested in understanding the challenges of Dash merchant adoption. https://youtu.be/9ogQPyIY39I
