INTRODUCTION
As Social media sites continue their meteoric rise as the fastest growing online, the push for companies to adopt social technology into enterprise business models rapidly increases. The main reason businesses  need to pay attention to social media is simple: Customer expectations. Research assembled by HubSpot indicates customers expect to see businesses active on social technology sites.  There are abundant opportunities for B2C and B2B enterprises to engage with current and prospective customers using social technology. Social Media is not one-size-fit–all marketing strategy, So we have designed our target audience as Africans.

An internet research and analysis was conducted by the team which disclosed about 31.2% of the world population using internet are Africans and about 98% of this population are FACEBOOK Subscriber Internet Research on Facebook making our focus audience to be Africans and using Facebook as the initial tool for interaction and then Twitter, WhattsApp, Telegram  and Instagram as supporting tool.

DASH-HUB AFRICA- Communication Channels
The team has created a Facebook page named DASH-HUB Africa https://www.facebook.com/dashafrica/ Also, ensuring effective communication with potential and current newbies is important. We have created a twitter handle for DASH-HUB Africa https://twitter.com/DashhubAfrica?s=17 Other Social media Channels will be created to support our activities and Outreach.

I don't understand why this Proposal haven't passed-IMO this proposal offer the best we need from any proposal. @ultimatecrypto you got my Yes Vote. Masternode let us give this guy this opportunity to get Dash to about 3million Africans quiet a good expansion ahead through this proposal.

I understand the issues from this proposal but I think Ultimatecrypto intentions to promote DASH are more than legit and he will use the DASH to good use. This period most of the proposals are very conservative in price and I think this doesnt really go overboard as many people make it looks like. I wish for MNO to vote YES.

My plea to Masternodes Owner is to take a real look at what this proposal and the opportunity its offer for DASH expansion intoAfrica and not the amount of Spam it has generated. This proposal is for 4months and I can be evaluated before the end of the next cycle for further funding or Defunding.

I sincerely apologise for putting the community into talk about 32DASH since this days.
Cheers!

Barely a day goes by on the Dash Nation Discord without these guys posting photos of a Dash promotion meetup they have hosted. They're going all out to promote Dash every day. It would be a real shame to lose that commitment because of just one of the many activities they suggest is inadvisable. They are doing great work; I hope the MNOs recognize that and ask Ultimatecryptoto refrain from offering Dash as an investment rather than throwing the baby out with the bathwater by rejecting the whole proposal.

Masternode Owners, Please I want you to focus on the PR opportunities this proposal offers to the network and not the amount of Spam it has generated.

Our focus is to expand the Outreach of DASH to the developing nations like Africa because it's offers more potential due to the weak economic system they have.
Also the sample of our intended Kiosk/Shop for exchange of DASH for Fiat and Fiat Money for DASH is below

I think Africa need this proposal and the network will hugely benefit from it.

Having gone through the project and project owner answers, I think that this project is a PR disaster waiting to happen. Sponsoring kiosks selling Dash as an investment to barely literate buyers is fraught with severe reputation risk; especially if the price goes down and buyers make losses.. All of this is possible as we know well..

I feel that strict SEC regulations around selling crypto as an investment are around the corner and I wouldnt want dash to be associated with pushing uninformed people in Africa to invest in it. We can attract smarter money. All in the the risks are big and rewards are low to get behind this enthusiastically..
Reply

I think you are missing the point, Ghana has no easy way to get into an exchange, the movilization needs to be on a more 'localbitcoin' manner and having boots on the ground will facilitate this availability of fiat and DASH. Plus from a crypto perspective we need more P2P venues as opposed as centralized exchanges that make hundred of millions of dollars honeypots.
Reply
-2 points,3 years ago
I totally Disagree with this comment @Wixamlee. Be informed that this proposal is not about Selling Dash as an Investment. The concept in this proposal is that we would organise Meetups, make more Outreach to 3Million Africans through Social Media Platforms and development of 4 Local exchange Kiosk/Shop to ensure easy exchange for DASH to Fiat and Fiat to DASH.

It is nice to know you're a Ghanaian by directly referring to SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) and its impending regulations at the parliament for deliberation but can I remind you that we have over 27Local exchanges in Ghana (ebitcoinics in Kumasi,remittano in Accra and others) that Buy and Sell BTC.

Business is about terms and conditions If a buyer agree to the terms transaction holds and that is why I intend to register this Local exchange (Kiosk/Shop) as a legit Business according to Company Act 1963, Ghana.

Finally I know you're a Troll and this avatar name was created to talk Negative about this proposal. Don't be shocked as I have followed up on your comments since I submitted this proposal. If you're not prove to me the work you have ever done for DASH network that makes you feel contributing to discussions on proposal would have impact on the network.

I sincerely want you to act professional and accord dignity in whatever you're doing.

Hi Dash Nation,

I want to use this opportunity to elaborate more and broaden the insight in our proposal for IMO to have a real look and the benefits it's offers for DASH network.

Firstly, I would be organising Meetups to nurture and educates Newbies in DASH in West Africa, Benefit attached is that New Wallets would be downloaded and more investment into DASH as we get new people joining the network.

Another is that I intend reaching out to 3Million Africa through Social media marketing using Facebook Ad link and Boost to increase Outreach. The benefits is that this will introduce more people to Dash and Ambassadors could be gotten from more Africa countries to expand the reach for DASH.

Lastly, Local Exchange (Kiosk/Shop) for easy and secure Exchange for DASH to Fiat and Fiat Money for DASH. This would bring DASH close to the people as the fear of exchange DASH is resolved.

The passion for submitting this proposal is because of the Increasing demand for Cryptocurrency in Africa, We need to put DASH into the forefront, by building a complete Ecosystem and encourage more usage by securing easy way to exchange DASH for Fiat.

This proposal would be achieved within 4 months And we are requesting for 23DASH+5DASH proposal fee. Even though I haven't used any Escrow Service for this proposal.You can check my previous achievements for DASH on discord and forum platform which was supported by Masternodes tips and Dash Nation

I think Masternode Owners should consider the benefits this Proposal offers, Also the timeframe is 4Months-You can Defund us in the next cycle when we underperform As we have promised.

Our intention is to make DASH become the Hub of Africa and be in frontier lead for other Cryptocurrency in the Africa market.

In today's Cryptocurrency world Africa Nation offers the best market because of the economy.

You could ask that how much can an Africa invest in Cryptocurrency but be Informed that that Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin (First Cryptocurrency to solve World Economic Crisis in 2008) and which part of the world is having Economic issues if not Africa that channel to the Fact that Africans can be removed in everything but not in Cryptocurrency.

What Ultimatecrypto wants to build in Ghana has never been done before. He wants to expand and try a lot of things. He is breaking new ground. I still think it's worth a gamble to see what it is he can build there. Some things may work, others may not, but here is a young man willing to try. I still think it's a good gamble to fund this group, and frankly we could de-fund it if things seem to be going down hill. The arguments below saying "you can't do this for 2 Dash, or that for 1 Dash" are irrelevant coming from non-Ghana residents. How do you know how much he'll need? I'd rather see him fail than not try.

I just watched your proposal video; What I can make of it is that you're so ambitious to make Impacts for Dash in Ghana-I think IMO need to consider this and the fact that you have shown prove of work in the past- Also, this proposal is a 4 months payout. So if we fund you this month, and you don't show confident and deliver-This proposal can easily be defunded in the next cycle.
Masternode Owners I entreat you to trust and show confident in this guy because Africans need good projects like this one.

Liquidity can never be of issue at our intended shop/Kiosk. Let say people demand more than our stock, I will quickly buy with my Debit card online from indacoin or changelly and then transact with it. I don't need to request 1000Dash for liquidity from Dash treasury. What I hold for this network is great thus ensure DASH becomes the Hub of Africa and secure easy exchange of Dash to Fiat in my localities.
You can disagree with me on this but this is the reality on the ground and DASH network would get value out of it.

Well if you can buy it then why cant others..

And if there is 27 exchanges in ghana why cant we sponsor them to add dash why reinvent the wheel
Reply

Few questions please

1) how will you bring liquidity to your shops/kiosk
2) do you have dash that you will sell?
3) will you first buy x amount of dash and have x amount of fiat on hand?
4) simply having a store/kiosk is the easy part liquidity is a whole new ball game.
5) how much skin in the game do you have ( how much of your own money is bring put into this venture)

Please reply so we can be best prepared to make an informed decision.

Look forward to discussions

@Realmrhack
Liquidity wouldn't be of issue. When people Demand for Fiat, someone Supply DASH to the market and to balance the market 2DASH each will be given to each Kiosk/Shop. Even in most cases I have seen, Africans are buying Dash to holding in the long term because no ready market is available to them but with our Local exchange (Kiosk/Shop) we would be able to transact and bring balance to the market. Personally I Buy and Sell DASH from people.
But with the issue of buying and selling price, this will be determined by the market value and the exchange rate of DASH at the time of transaction.
In the future we look forward for DASH project adding our Shop/Kiosk into consideration e.g Dash ATM, POS system and others

If 50 people show up to buy 0.5 dash each at a kiosk, what will you do? Have you thought this through? I dont think you understood the question.
Reply
0 points,3 years ago
Do you realize that 0.5 Dash is a month's salary for the average middle class Nigerian? Would you carry a month's salary to a kiosk? A more realistic scenario for selling out would 100 people wanting 0.02 Dash. If that happens then I'd say this proposal is a resounding success.

I am a little amused by the amount of spam you are generating on MN talk, discord and this forum. This is not the way to ask for votes..

As for the proposal, there is already an active project in ghana, you can reach out to cryptolib, support his project instead and learn about adoption. Your work is not up to to the mark to be funded as of this moment, from what I can make out..

@Undash63 I have learnt alot from all Dash Ambassadors in Africa @rotc @Zambang @cryptolib @Dashingdude, Also I have assisted in executing projects funded by the community in Ghana my first project that developed the passion for DASH was sponsored by @cryptolib. Last week I represented DASH at Accra Blockchain Conference where 3 Businesses adopted Dash at the event. I invited @Zambang who is currently working on Dash for Business in Ghana.
The increasing adoption of DASH grew the passion for this proposal to make DASH to the frontier lead in Africa and make exchange easy and convenient for DASH adopter's.

I accept the fact that I spam discord talk and forum soliciting for Votes and I have sent apologies to everyone. Going forward I will ensure I act professional and respect Dash discord rules.

I like the enthusiasm, but this was a hard decision to take. The quality of work seems substandard and the amount is considerable for a first proposal. I think promoting DASH as an investment is dangerous and the network should not be funding that. Voting Abstain for now.
Reply
-2 points,3 years ago
I disagree to this comment, @dashuser33. The proposal is not about promoting DASH as an Investment, the idea in it is clear and concise-We intend to execute monthly Meetup in 2 west Africa countries, Social Media marketing and 4 Local exchange(Kiosk/Shop) which will be suited in Nigeria and Ghana for easy conversion of Dash to Fiat. The target is reaching out to 3Million Africa which would be achieved within 4 months and we would get the community updates on work in progress monthly.
Lastly, Africa needs this as the adoption of Cryptocurrency is becoming rampant they need a place to easily exchange not internet but a physical outlet

Am excited to share with you again my proposal about Meetups, Social Media Marketing and 4 Kiosk/Shop in Africa. It could look too ambitious as a first time proposal owner to request 28Dash for projects in Africa but I want to inform you that the increasing Adoption of Cryptocurrency in Africa grew the passion for this proposal and my intention to help integrate DASH to take the frontier lead in Africa.

I have noticed on some proposals that there are some enthusiastic no voters. The no votes often appear early in the voting cycle, and generally in the 30-60 range. In any community, there is going to be a diversity of opinions, and the healthy debate and exchange of viewpoints is essential for the long term success of Dash. And certainly, if you think a proposal does not offer a good value proposition for Dash, by all means, vote no.

Within that context, it is still good to observe and remember that despite an initial spate of no votes, many proposals still go on to be approved. So, to both the Masternodes and the proposal owners, just be mindful that the initial trend does not necessarily represent the overall sentiment of the community at large.

Keep following the conversation. Keep evaluating each proposal on its merits. Keep verifying the facts. I trust the community as a whole.

Carry on, have fun, win! solarguy

Seems ambitious to start off with. The price seems too much and could be lowered with a lot of waste cut out IMO. 4 months is also too long.

@Mastermined I think this proposal is of good start in Africa, a complete ecosystem is better than just starting in a cut off way for instance I have organised Meetups several times and even won .15DASH in December contest of DASH force.
You get someone introduced to DASH and the next question is How to exchange Dash for Fiat and Fiat for Dash easily due to the nature of Africa economy no online exchanges like coin base or Gdax to exchange but with a local shop or Kiosk someone can easily walk in and exchange at any time.
Also, the social media marketing will help to get more people informed about DASH and the unique service we render to the Africa community and this would be achieved through Facebook boost and Ad link.
It looks broad on a scale but simple to implement because we have the requisite skills and experience to handle this. Africans is waiting for this and DASH is going to get a massive Adoption out of this proposal.

Apologies to Masternode Owners.

Hi Everyone!
I have noticed that whenever I post anything both on Discord or telegram I get over 50 No votes.

This is my first proposal after several work for Dash that could be traced on Dash discord and forum. Am not familiar with the conduct of Dash Masternode. What I read on the Forum was that proposal owners have to make advert of their proposal in order to canvass for Votes. How do I do this. I'm not also a Masternode owners to know the appropriate channel to reach out so you.so I get pissing anyone up with my annoying post.

I can tell you this proposal I put down is a great project for Africa massive Adoption and with the experience I have gathered in marketing field and my team we would deliver up to standard but I don't know how to canvass for Votes. I have been blocked from Discord because I contacted some Masternode and some even went to change their Yes Vote.

Am writing this with pain and crying for forgiveness. Please all Masternode owners I need you for this proposal to pass.(Please forgive me)

Yours sincerely

I don't know either. MNOs complain that they don't get updates, then you give them updates and they don't want to see it. I guess they just want you to stick all your information on Dash.org's forum, in your proposal thread, which nobody looks at. The only thing I can think of to do in that case is to put links to your updates here and once in a while, risk it on discord? I mean "Dash Talk" is open to talking about anything regarding Dash, and many people post about their projects there. I never mind seeing your posts, and appreciate being kept up to date in a location where I am already (because I'm lazy) . You can never please everyone. But MNOs voting no because they found you to be annoying is just plain childish and doesn't belong here IMO.

Hey Everyone!
I wish to briefly explain this proposal to you. This project target is expected to reach-out to 3Million Africans and beyond.

Dash-hub Meetups intends to reach out to new people monthly and get them adopted into DASH, The Social media marketing is an effective tool for communication and exploring Africans into DASH through Facebook Ad and boost this could be achieved.

Also, the idea of developing a complete ecosystem with Local shop/Kiosk will enable easy exchange of Dash to Fiat and Fiat into Dash. Africa countries don't have the opportunity to easily exchange Crypto into Fiat and with our Dash Local shops, People can easily locate DASH and then exchange for Fiat at anytime.

Finally, This proposal intends to create a complete ecosystem for DASH in Africa and it's really going to give a good Return on Investment to DASH and the community as a whole. Africans need this as the adoption of Cryptocurrency is rapidly transforming our economy.

Thanks for reading and your time.

I so badly want Dash to make a difference in the world, especially where I live, in the USA. But to prove it can be done, places like Africa are the perfect starting point! I think we're super lucky to have so many teams working for Dash in Ghana and Nigeria and if Dash can make a lasting impression there, and become a usable currency there, it can do it anywhere. I sure hope you guys get the votes you need!

I'll say this about this man-he always handled Dash giveaways we did together professionally and really engaged with the people. For instance-he would ask people about details such as instant send and what makes digital currency special. His goal was clearly to educate and he always delivered the money. Keep pushing forward Ultimatecrypto-you will be rewarded if you keep up the excellent work your doing.

I hope the proposal can reach it's goal there still time, please get professional help and rework the budget proposal, also a good way to go is to under promise and over deliver. For a first time proposal, just do what you think you can actually achieve, and if you can do more great. The opposite might get you burned.

@pescobar If you want wealth then the focus should be Africa. We have abundant of natural resources ranging from Gold, Oil, Cocoa, Timber and others but the issue is African Government are corrupt and that is reason why Dash and Cryptocurrency is gaining rampant adoption in Africa.

Also do you know whats more valuable then gold? Diamonds.... Diamonds are one of the world's, and specifically Africa's, major natural resources. An estimated US$13 billion worth of rough diamonds are produced per year, of which approximately US$8.5 billion are from Africa (approximately 65%).

Hey MHO!

I have been observing the trend of Voting since last 3days I got this proposal posted. It seems there are suggestions or comments for me but am not getting it.

Even though this is my first proposal am submitting to the Dash network. I have been able to achieve alot for DASH through tipsdonation from Masternodes,Dash force meetups and Dash Global.
The idea on this proposal is clear and am requesting for this amount because I want DASH to move into the Africa market with an effective and competent tool. We have over 6 French speaking country in West Africa but none of them have an idea about DASH no Ambassadors from those countries. With the power of research Facebook can help reach out to them and get them involved.
Also, the Kiosk/Outlet will help easy exchange for Fiat to Dash and Dash to Fiat without trading on internet to avoid scams and fraud dealing with unknown person.
Lastly, the meetups will make Dash going more viral as more adopter's and more wallets will be opened.

In my opinion. Please I need you to leave comments behind as you Vote because I want to see progress in DASH and only your Vote can make this happen.
Cheers!

Hello,

There are DASH Ambassadors in Cameroon and Central Africa (French Speaking countries). They've been unto a lot of work also.

Stay tuned for the report of my proposal...
Reply

I'll give it a whirl. They are who they say they are. They have a positive history in the Dash community. The plan provides for physical meet ups, social media marketing and several Kiosks to provide a means to exchange Dash -> Fiat and Fiat -> Dash. An ambitious plan and not too much money.

Carry on, have fun, win! solarguy

Why should we pay to register the kiosks in your personal company's name? What's happens to the profits made after the kiosks become operational? How much trading fees ( DASH to Fist conversation? will be charged? If we are talking about targeting millions of people, I expect millions in trading fees, take coinbase for example. Now if your own the kiosks then what does the DASH gets? I don't see this in your plan. Please answer in detail.
If DASH will not share any profits from this venture. Then the vote should be NO.
Reply

The intention of registering the kiosk with the name DASH HUB Africa is clear, DASH is the future of money and how do you register money in a country or have you seen Dollar, Euro or pounds get into a country and then have to register with government. But this businesss will be exchanging DASH for Fiat vice versa and we need to get it registered. The network will benefit as DASH exchange for fiat becomes easy and more accessible. Lastly the kiosk will be designed to exchange but not purposely for profit making. In any case of profit making, it would spent on advert for DASH kiosk and probably payment of staff wages/salaries. we appreciate your comment and i want to assure you that this proposal is well planned and would go a far way to get DASH more closer to the people of Africa.

It is a great idea however 116 Dash looks much, maybe you should review your budget. Also cut down what u promise as a grand start for you and your team. I feel blending Ghana and Nigeria raises questions. You need a focus area: A step at a time not forgetting prove of work principle. You are an enthusiastic guy, and I think a resize of budget, some piloting and clear elaboration will help this proposal pass. Time lines for execution; you have meet ups, social media promotion and establishing outlets/kiosk, are all of these to be done within the four months in which u will be paid 28 Dash per month? Also why do you think Dash should register your business for you and why 3 Dash for business registration in Ghana? I think it is OK to eliminate some of these and have a reduce budget and more comprehensive proposal going forward. It cost less than 1/2 a Dash to register a business with a high cort endorsement and an assigned law firm. Also what will Dash Hub be doing as its operations? Also, what type of fb, Instagram and Twitter post will you be making and how does that get Dash newbies. I remember suggesting on your pre-proposal to consider more of YouTube videos than fb. Good luck and if i was rich enough, I could vote YES and assist in shaping your execution strategies for good results and this is because I can possibly locate you. Cheers.....

Hi @cryptolib where did you get that value 116 Dash from. Kindly view the budget section of this proposal for the accurate amount. Also the target of this project is the Africa market but going to develop Kiosk/Outlet in Ghana and Nigeria. DASH isn't also registering my business but its outlet/kiosk have to be registered for legit business.
we appreciate your comments but we want to inform you that this proposal was well planned and delivery strategy is also in place to make DASH network go more viral in the Africa market.
cheers mate.

28 Dash a month for 4 months gives you 112 Dash, sorry for the miscalculation however that still makes a little difference from 116.
Re: "Registration of Dash-hub Africa Kiosk/Outlet as a legit Business And Advert: 3 DASH
Law Consultant
Certified Approval from a Legal firm
Certificate of Incorporation
Certificate of Commence Business
Business Operation Tax" No registered business is charged for running an outlet in any part of the country so if you are registering Dash hub as a business, why pay to register its outlets. Are you registering the outlets for yourself, for Dash as a network or for Dash hub? if this is not your business then i am not sure you want to be funded to open kiosk/outlets that belong to no one.

Hi cryptolib seems you're getting it wrong. This article will give you some idea about how to register a financial business in Ghana https://www.bog.gov.gh/privatecontent/Banking_Supervision/licensing%20requirements%20for%20non-bank%20financial%20institutions.pdf
Also, Registration of the outlet is important as its transact with individual and then make it a legit business to make more upstream for DASH. Kindly check this article to learn more about Income Business Tax http://www.gra.gov.gh/index.php/tax-information/income-tax
Thank you.

Now I heard you say I am chastising you and I dont think you really want us to go deep into this. I run a registered finance business (mobile money/credit facility). I am not sure you have a good idea how much it cost to get a mobile money business certificate in Ghana of which you can't do this proposal without. I am not against you in any form not after I sponsored your first Dash event personally and I will spare the details about it. My concern here is your proposal amount and what you have indicated you want to achieve. For those hailing you, it is because they have seen pictures that looks good about what you say is your work. Maybe some should have requested videos. I don't like a scenario of "opening 800 new wallets a day" as someone else mentioned. I love real stuffs, Asking for about 100k in total for what you indicated is just too ambiguous and you know why I am after you. I am not sure if you run an org, you will take anyone who comes to you with this proposal serious.........cheers and let the mno do their work.

it is surprising you are hating on all Africa projects by different folks even the Dash folks from Nigeria who had a three days music festival. "go read the article, it is three days not one day" A lot of folks here said we should give this dude a chance to do what he said he will do and if he doesn't then he won't be funded any more. you are in Ghana with him you got is personal mobile number which i believe, which you should have PM him or call him to adjust things you feel are too much or too small but you decided to claim the KING of Dash in Africa. you are just a pathetic fellow. It is a shame cryptolib. If this project doesn't get funded i hope you will be happy that one of your brother project was not funded while the remaining nations will always support their fellow proposals with all they have because they believe it will benefit the dash networks with their collective help on the project and not some foolish comments on a fellow Ghanaian proposal because you only think you are right and all are wrong. go get a life bro.

Can't support such substandard work. You are promoting crypto as an investment to new investors which puts us in a really bad situation.

These guys, if you've been following them, are the hardest working team in Dash (well, at least up there with Dash Force and Tao, LOL) Seriously, I'd support anything they come up with for the price they're asking. I know they are trying different things and are out there every day bringing Dash to everyone they meet. If they have concluded that a marketing program on facebook would help them in their area, I am inclined to think they know what they are talking about. Frankly it's not that much different from what core's research is doing. And in no way do I see this as conflicting. When West Africa wants help with Dash adoption, they go to these young men. Amazing work, big yes from me!!
