Proposal description

Summary
The Free Thought Project is proposing a longterm relationship with DASH in order to promote and grow the DASH cryptocurrency and continue to spread the ideas of liberty. As mainstream media continues to attempt to snub out opposing ideas like cryptocurrency and those who challenge the status quo we propose a partnership to use our organic reach to punch through the narrative and bring these ideas to the masses.

The Free Thought Project is arguably one of the largest liberty-minded alternative media outlets in the world reaching tens of millions every single month on social media alone. With a DASH partnership, we could combine our forces to change the face of media as we know it while exposing millions to the power of DASH.

About the Free Thought Project
The Free Thought Project went online in October of 2013. Within only months, we quickly excelled to an Alexa ranking in the top 2,500 websites in the world. In short, we filled a void in the information paradigm by refusing to report unprovable conspiracy theories and focus on government accountability, promoting alternative solutions to the problems in the state, and spreading peace and liberty. We have also been promoting the idea of cryptocurrencies since the beginning and in fact, the Free Thought Project reported on the very first vehicle sale conducted solely in Bitcoin in 2013.

The Free Thought Project has even reported on the current Dash Central project and its incredible ability to alter the media paradigm by decentralizing control of information.

With a DASH partnership, we would be directly competing with mainstream media and showing its obsolescence by building something entirely new and innovative while bringing DASH to the masses.

Our content has been shared and reproduced by Ron Paul, Kim Dotcom, WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Joe Rogan, Big Boi, Doug Stanhope, Erika Badu, DL Hughley, Kyrie Irving and other freedom loving politicians, activists, and celebrities alike.

Coverage
While a number of alternative media outlets have gained a following by promoting conspiracy theories or aligning with a certain political party or figure when it is convenient, The Free Thought Project has taken a different approach. Our mission is to promote principles, to give a voice to the voiceless and to provide coverage of a number of angles that the mainstream media refuses to cover, or provides misleading information on.

Instead of catering to one “side,” or only reporting the most sensational information, we believe that the only way to set ourselves apart from both the mainstream media and other alternative media outlets is to consistently call for truth and transparency in all aspects.

On top of asking the difficult questions, over the course of the last 5 years, The Free Thought Project has helped people who've become victims of oppression or injustice. From exclusive reports that have helped mothers attempting to save their child's life with cannabis in places where it's illegal to parents whose children were killed by police—we believe in using our influence to right these wrongs and will continue to do so.

With a DASH partnership, The Free Thought Project would be able to focus more on creating hard-hitting content and less on selling it. The result would be a WikiLeaks-style media outlet, beholden to no political party whose mission is to promote the ideas of peace, liberty, and DASH cryptocurrency.

Benefit to Dash
Our organic reach.

In just the last two years, the Free Thought Project has received over 1.5 BILLION organic video views on Facebook alone. We have over 6 million followers of our own on various Facebook pages and belong to a network that reaches upwards of 30 million followers. In our few years on the internet, The Free Thought Project website has received nearly half a billion visits or roughly 7 percent of the entire world's population.

Our social media presence is devoted solely to the ideas of freedom and spreading that freedom and we have grown them immensely. On top of our massive presence on Facebook, we also have a large following in the tens of thousands on YouTube and have tens of millions of views on that platform as well. We also have a huge reach on Instagram with 285K followers and 10K followers on Google plus.

The Free Thought Project was also one of the first media outlets to join and subsequently promote Steemit. We have used this platform to promote DASH already.

Advertisers pay us to display their ads to our organic reach. Some of these payments are upwards of $10-$15 per 1,000 views. We propose a partnership with DASH which will exclusively grant all advertising space and promotions solely to DASH.

One does not need to do the math to understand the value of such a proposal. However, if we take into consideration our social media reach, and the promotion of DASH within this network, we would be promoting the DASH brand and idea to 30-100 million people every week, and upwards of billions annually.

On top of our already massive reach, the Free Thought Project has become an industry leader in the alternative media and every time we publish an article, share a meme or create a video, there are numerous websites that aggregate our content and publish it to their outlets.

If The Free Thought Project forms a partnership with DASH, we believe that not only will we have the opportunity to educate our readers on the power of DASH, but it will also inspire the many alternative media sites that share and use content from The Free Thought Project to research the power of DASH and share this information with their audiences as well.

We currently have a large group of supporters who subscribe to our site for an ad-free version as well as to show their support. With a DASH partnership, we would contact all our subscribers and encourage them and facilitate the process of changing their subscriptions into direct purchases of DASH cryptocurrency. This would mean TFTP would be directly sponsoring the purchase of DASH, in turn, driving up its value and bringing about more awareness.

Deliverables and Breakdown of Funding
Although we have already long promoted the ideas of crypto and DASH, in particular, this partnership would allow us to cover multiple topics on what DASH brings to the table. We could even set up a system in which the MNOs vote on and propose topics for our writers and researchers to cover.

What's more, the best part about this is that our infrastructure is already in place. We have a devoted team of professional journalists, content and video creators, and social media gurus who have grown a tiny website into a massive movement. With a DASH partnership, this team becomes your team.

With a DASH/TFTP partnership, DASH would be the sole sponsor of the Free Thought Project. All videos, memes, vemes, Youtube impressions, website ads, and tens of thousands of daily emails would all carry the DASH logo and/or a preroll/postroll DASH promotion. DASH will be promoted 24 hours a day, constantly, across multiple platforms.

Given our history in views, this would be the equivalent of buying hundreds of millions of ad impressions.

At least once a week, TFTP will put out an exclusive article promoting DASH. We could get these ideas from the MNO network and promote other projects which DASH is helping come to fruition.

The Free Thought Project will also continue reporting on and breaking exclusive and important information that the mainstream media refuses to cover and all of it will be branded with DASH.

Seven days a week, TFTP will create content, cover the news, help the countless victims who contact us on a weekly basis by telling their stories and seeking justice, and push this content using our massive reach—and all of it will be promoting DASH in the process.

At least once a month, TFTP will create a video specifically detailing how DASH is helping to take the power of information back from the mainstream and foster not only the decentralization of money but the decentralization of information. This will be made with one of our spokespersons and professionally produced featuring a custom fade in/out designed to promote DASH.

DASH would become the first cryptocurrency in the world to fund a media watchdog enterprise paving the way for history to be made.

Budget Breakdown
The Free Thought Project is seeking a long-term relationship with DASH. This means we want to provide a bargain for the investment.

As we've looked at other successfully funded projects through DASH Central, like Truth in Media, we propose a far less expensive option that will bring far more exposure.

For a similar investment, TFTP will foster this partnership for years—not months—bringing DASH to billions of people.

For our low monthly budget, this would bring DASH impressions to more than 100,000,000 people a month, on Facebook alone. We will also be promoting DASH on all of our platforms mentioned above, the website will be built with a custom DASH theme, and all traffic will be directly exposed to DASH.

The budget breakdown is as follows:

Web Hosting and Security: $5,000
Editor in chief: $8,000
Social Media manager: $8,000
Website Maintenance: $5,000
Editor: $4,000
Writing Team: $9,000
Video Team: $6,000
Facebook manager: $3,000
Direct/Indirect Traffic Acquisition: $12,000

Total: $60,000/month at DASH price of $473 on 3/9/2018

As for the recommendations for what to cover in the weekly article and video promotions of DASH, we got input from Joël Valenzuela and we can use this forum for those suggestions.

Based on feedback, we will propose this partnership on a trial basis of 3 months. When it is determined to be mutually beneficial, we move forward in additional 3-month increments. 

Update: Just to illustrate the scope of our organic reach, I will compare our numbers to the recently released KPI by Ben Swann's amazing project, Truth in Media.

The total reach as listed on the KPI shows TIM reached a total of 55,584,346 in all of February.

On the single TFTP Facebook page alone, TFTP organically reached 38,529,261—Just last week.

These numbers do not include our other social media properties that also reach tens of millions weekly, nor does it include the millions of website visits, video views, and email newsletters. 

Update 2: With the recent ban on cryptocurrency advertising, this partnership makes even more sense as we will be branding dash across multiple platforms, without the need to purchase expensive ads.

Update: Even though the big hitters like google and facebook have banned crypto advertising, our organic traffic is killing it. Just this month, thefreethoughtproject.com alone is responsible for sending 80 percent of ALL traffic to discoverdash.com. We are also responsible for sending 50% of all traffic to dashforcenews.com This is tens of thousands of our educated readers going directly to landing pages to teach them about dash and guide them to setting up wallets. This does not include the tens of millions of impressions from all of our other platforms.

Google just announced it will ban all advertising for cryptocurrencies and ICO's.
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/03/13/google-bans-crypto-ads.html

Facebook already did the same thing:
https://www.recode.net/2018/1/30/16950926/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-bans-crypto-advertising-bitcoin-james-altucher

The official reason is that they want to "protect" you from financial loss by preventing you from investing in some risky new crypto venture. I very much doubt that their primary motive is to protect you or me. Let's do the "follow the money" test. Who benefits by preventing people from finding out about honest money that is not controlled by your government or your bank? Well, the legacy banking system, that's who benefits.

But can they shut down The Free Thought Project and all the alternative outlets like Steemit? Doubtful.

I vote yes. This is about honest money and freedom of the press. Without those two things, we as a society are doomed.

Thank you solarguy! We get DDoS attacks 24/7 because of the information we put out. But we have gotten really good at beating them. Make no mistake, we are in an information war and those who wish to maintain control are scared. The time to join forces and flex our might is now.

An open letter to Masternode Owners

I’m writing to you and the community as a whole. I understand that many of you bought into Dash because you see it as a potential winner in the crypto space and that you can earn a steady income from running a node. The budget system is great, only as a business person, you don’t see the value of some of the apparently wasteful things that have been supported in the past, and you are going to do your darndest to put a stop to it! I appreciate that. Many of the things Dash has done don’t make economic sense. I keep hearing about the Rate of Income, and that we’re not seeing sufficient returns on some of the proposals. Unfortunately, I don’t think you understand what you signed on for. Please let me explain.

The cryptocurrency movement started by the unknown Satoshi Nakamoto, is a declaration of war against the incumbent banking system. There is no sweeter way of saying it. Of course nobody wants actual war, or any type of violence, however the incumbent system has utterly failed the people of the world in so many ways, and are undoubtedly the cause and source of all the wars around the world; the proof of which would be far too long a book to write here. This war can only be won Gandhi style, Martin Luther King Jr. style. We must win the hearts and minds of the world. We must grab as big a foothold in countries who have been decimated by bad governments and bankers. What you signed on for here is not a “business” that runs a balance sheet and must show profit. You signed on to a war.

If you have not noticed yet, The IMF’s Christine Lagarde had declared the need to “control cryptocurrencies”. The good news is that they can not, ultimately, control them. They can however block fiat access which would be a huge slowdown in adoption. You see, when Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin, he knew he already won the war. However, there are still battles to go through. They will not change the ultimate outcome, but they can cause a LOT of misery; probably even death, as it’s obvious that those in power will do anything to keep it. It does NOT have to go this way if we play the game of Chess well. They’re on the defense. Lets keep them there!

So what do we need to get us through these battles as unscathed and solid as possible? We need two things. We need to win hearts and minds of the people of the world and we need to get footholds in large areas where people use cryptos in daily life, not fiat. For this, Dash is the best tool, but the crypto community as a whole needs to band together to make this work! And because of our budget, Dash is in the best position to lead this charge.

If you have not noticed, the media is fully controlled by the governments today. There is no more freedom of the press anymore, except for small independent groups and individuals. Today’s mainstream media is pulled by the very same strings; not left, not right, none of that is even real. Who in America that isn’t brainwashed or mentally ill, really hates blacks, whites, browns yellows and purples? You really think “white” people care what color skin another person has? I’ll tell you, not any more than a black or brown or purple person is likely to hate a white or other color person. No, it’s a tool to divide and conquer. Birth control, abortion, wages, race; it’s all fodder to keep the people incensed and impudent. Nothing changes no matter who is in charge.

By supporting projects like The Free Thought Project, Ben Swann, and the crypto show (and their humanitarian aid arm) and more, we develop a relationship and allies. Our funding can empower free media, and in return we can expect that they will tell the truth about crypto. This is the absolutely best way to win hearts and minds in my opinion because even the most average of humans in the United States feels manipulated and that something isn’t right in the media, even if they can’t put their finger on it. If we can increase the reach of Truth in Media or any other such project, it will be the best tool we can hope for in this war.

Also, the importance of what we do in Venezuela and other South American countries, plus what we do for many countries in Africa cannot be under estimated. These are Dash’s and crypto’s foot holds. There is so much potential in Africa and South America, and digital currencies will free that potential. If you don’t know by now, you should know that it is corrupt banking or lack thereof that keeps the people in these parts of the world from participating economically in the world. If we get a real economy working in these parts of the world, these countries or areas have no debt, no love of western banking. They will be whole heartedly crypto. And nobody will be able to change that.

Either we win, or we drag this out forever, until the corrupt institutions of the world find a way to co-opt everything the crypto community have been trying to build. We look at the bottom line for what Ben Swann’s rate of return cost per click was, or we back media because it represents freedom as does cryptocurrency. We build a trust relationship with hard working young people in Africa, who are grass rooting their country and soon catapulting it to the top of the food chain, or we leave them and their potential high and dry because pictures aren’t enough proof, there “could” be waste in how they are functioning, or god forbit they “take us” for a dash or two. I don’t even think they’d ever even do that, they’re full of so much zest for building an economy in their homeland, but the narrow-minded fear we seem to have is starting to become irrational.

If you haven’t guessed by now, this letter to you, the Dash community is a request to support and vote for all the African, Venezuelan, Benn Swann, Truth in Media proposals because we NEED these people to win! Thank you so much for reading this and I apologize for posting this everywhere, but that is my intention.

TanteStefana, very well said. This is the reason that we approached DASH. We want people to know that cryptocurrency is more than what the establishment says it is. We want people to realize it is the weapon in the "war" that you mentioned to keep information and humanity free.

Those who control the money supply, control most everything. We aim to stifle that control and DASH is the tool to do it with.

The importance of what DASH is doing cannot be underestimated. Unfortunately, however, very few people know about these projects so the hearts and minds in the support base are few. We will change that by showing hundreds of millions of people this every month. We will not only show them the power DASH gives back to the people, but we will encourage our followers to join this fight by purchasing and using it.

No problem, I'm just glad a libertarian project approached us that doesn't pander to far-right tendencies. As long as you provide dash with a reasonable return on investment and continue to put out factual content that isn't sensationalized you will have my vote.

That is the goal. We have no doubt that this partnership will be massively beneficial to DASH. Also, it is a shame to see the far right pandering like that. It created a rift in the movement the likes of which I have never seen. It is also no coincidence that the vitriolic section of that rift is being promoted and covered in the mainstream like never before.

It looks like half of the proposal is getting cut off, so I am going to comment the rest in here.

The Free Thought Project was also one of the first media outlets to join and subsequently promote Steemit. We have used this platform to promote DASH already.

Advertisers pay us to display their ads to our organic reach. Some of these payments are upwards of $10-$15 per 1,000 views. We propose a partnership with DASH which will exclusively grant all advertising space and promotions solely to DASH.

One does not need to do the math to understand the value of such a proposal.

The criminals are running the show and we (Dash, and the "cryptosphere" in general), have a chance to weaken them. Thank you. (I'm actually shaking with rage after seeing this.)

Somehow, even though I regularly visit anarchist type websites, I had not heard of Free Thought Project. I just now visited, and I'm so sold. I love the videos exposing the horror of the police state. I'm very interested in your idea of mechanising MNO inputs for news topics. This, along with Ben Swann.

As I said in your Pre-Proposal, I'm a regular viewer and sharer of your content and appreciate the work you do. I have some doubts about the direct monetary benefits to Dash, but the work you do is important enough, and your reach large enough that I think this pilot 3-month trial to see if we'll be good for each other is more than worth it.

Hi Arthyron, I much appreciated your input on the pre-proposal. From an advertising perspective alone, this is going to be like buying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of impressions for a tiny fraction of that monthly. On top of that, we are going to be teaching people about DASH every week, showing the real-world capability of DASH to allow information to compete with those who try to control it, facilitating direct purchases of DASH, and all the other things listed above. Also, I saw in the dash-talk channel that there are some problems with DASH SEO, this also falls under our umbrella and expertise and we will also work on that, although SEO results usually take about 6 months to fully realize.

the first three months is a trial period. yes. We determined that to be the best approach to begin this relationship. Also with the price of dash fluctuating, if it goes up significantly, we wouldn't need as many, so best to move forward in increments, but still looking at long term.
