Proposal description

Dear Dash Community,    
Our proposal is to make Rio Tercero in Córdoba province, a city with a population of 46000 people, the “First Dash-friendly pilot city”, based on a thorough training to traders, businessmen, entrepreneurs and the extended community.

ROI


  • Large-scale promotion of the benefits of using Dash as an alternative payment method in daily commerce.
  • Our scope is to reach about 5000 persons using TV, Radio FM, Local and Regional Newspaper interviews to immerse them into Dash community and activities over the time.
  • Positioning of DASH as an alternative payment method in the region
  • Achievement of national development through large-scale events.
  • Opening of at least 900 wallets throughout this period.
  • Branding and brand identity development
  • Training for new regional leaders nationwide



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Updates:
Following the advice we have received, these are the updates we believe will improve our proposal
1 - (March, 20th. 2018) - Media Impact (Reach +5000 persons)
2 - (March, 21st. 2018) - Dash community alliances
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our main but not sole objective is to introduce Dash to the Argentine market. Argentina is a country that lacks sufficient knowledge as far ascryptocurrencies are concerned, and where these currencies, particularly the Bitcoin, are referred to in a speculative way. Thus, there is an advantageous and favorable environment for the arrival of Dash to our country as an alternative payment method.

Our plan is to organize two events per month (a conference and a workshop) for a period of three months, in which participants will get Dash marketing material and credit to foster the use of Dash as an alternative payment method. We estimate an audience of 400 participants per month, a total of 1200 participants in the entire period.

Conferences will deal with Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, Dash Digital Money, focusing further on topics such as DAO, Masternodes and Dash mining.

During workshops, participants will be able to experiment and naturalize the use of paper wallets, mobile wallets and exchange, providing an open platform for debate among participants on how to spread the use of Dash as an alternative payment method in daily commerce.

Schedule of activities to be developed over the three month period

Media impact

We will make a media tour over about 15 FM Radios located in Río Tercero introducing Dash to the people inviting them to join us in each
Conference and Workshop driven by us. Also we plan to post a column during the previous week of each event  in "Diario Río Tercero" - Daily Digital Newspapper, shared using whatsapp to almost 2500 subscribers. We are in touch and negotiating with the most important regional Weekly Tribuna Digital newspapper, to make the chronicles of each event. In TV sector, Río Tercero has two TV channels and we are in talks to insert a dialy tv spot with three news about cryptocurrencies in prime time.
This strategy allows us to confirm that more than 5000 persons will be under "DASH EFFECT" and will be de begining the most important  phase of comunication , that is to impose the topic will be DASH and Cryptocurrencies.

Because Argentina needs Dash and Dash needs Argentina

Argentina is one of the two great South American economic powers, together with Brazil, and is going through a defining moment: with a population of 45 million people and a totally unstable currency, Argentinians are eager to look for new forms of investment, alternative payment and saving methods. So, this is the right time for Dash to present itself as a solution to financial problems with a great potential to prevail as an alternative payment system in Argentina.

The work being done

For the past few months, we have organized small Meetups with Dash wallet openings, events on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, promotion in local media, and we have done our best within our limited budget. These activities have allowed us to add a significant number of followers interested in Dash and its proposal as an alternative payment method. This has been possible partly due to our own funding and the invaluable funding received from our appreciated collaborator "JZA", principal mentor of the DASH GLOBAL proposal and member of the Dash Community of Mexico, to whom we want to thank for the support provided.This whole experience has helped us to consolidate knowledge and to position ourselves as local Dash referents; a reputation that we hope will increase in cooperation with this project.Likewise, we want to thank Wilmar Toro for his support for our Community of Dash News in Spanish, Eugenia Alcala from Dash Caracas Community, who motivated us with her tireless work in her country, and Alejandro Echeverria, the person in charge of Dash Help Venezuela, for his continuous guidance and advice.

Dear Stone:

Sorry for the delay in the answer.
We are currently positioning the Dash Brand in the City using training events as a strategy to educate the city's shops and users.

We are currently working on the development of a Broker service so that the user and merchant can buy Dash directly with Pesos Argentinos and at the same time merchants can sell their Dash and have Fiat money again.

Dash Argentina is doing an amazing work there.They're very committed people spreading dash' knowledge in several places over the country, even through live online calls and also bringing local merchants to accept Dash in their business.

This proposal will help to increase Dash presence in South America.

Will this be legal? Is it safe to do this with the strict currency regulations in Argentina? Or has that changed?
Reply

@TanteStefana: Thank you for your feedback and your concern. Luckily Argentina has somehow become crypto friendly country. Latest nationals regulations allows the use of Cryptocurrencies as a alternative payment method. As a reference we provide the official law (27430) published on December 29 2017
