Proposal description

Dash-Australia:  April – 2017 – April 2018 Proposal  

CryptoCurrency in Australia has a lot of keen interest, I operate a business in Perth Western, Australia and help educate people on how to get started with crypto currencies.
When I first started 2years ago, I placed a Bitcoin ATM in my cafe (Cafe935), I had general questions once every couple of weeks about 'what is crypto currency'.

January 2017, I educate people locally on how to buy crypto currency multiple times of the day, previously people were only interested in Bitcoin, however since March of this year 2017 more and more people are coming to the Cafe to enquire about purchasing Dash since the recent programing update and media attention. 

I have registered an Australian national number where anyone in Australia can reverse call (free of charge) andI want to advertised it on national platforms for people to contact me if they have questions on how to purchase Dash in Australia.  Perth, Western Australia meetup operates once a month where I attend and give a talk about alternative crypto currencies Dash and its capabilities compared with Bitcoin.  Dash is a hot topic here in Australia, but people need confidence from a person who is familiar and believes in the capabilities who is local Australian and can be contactable 7 days a week by phone.

The reason for this proposal is due to the largely increased interest in Dash in Australia. There are 26 million citizens here, I believe Dash will
grow stronger every month and requires help from a local Australian who is born and bread here.

The increased time and cost that I am expecting when this national number is listed will require manpower, My 4 staff are up to date with crypto currencies and can help out when needed.

This will get you:

1   a National advertised dedicated Dash Australian cell phone number (currently being registered and active through Vodaphone Australia (Mobile 0468350097), as well as the national number advertised on Australian website platforms and active 7 days a week.

-2  An advertised Australian point of contact for people in Australia. Through Australian Websites such as gumtree and Dash Forums.

- 3  advertising stickers in Perth Western Australia promoting Dash to be handed out to Perth Western Australian meetup groups monthly for 12 months. (I will have these produced at my own cost)

­- 4 Facebook–Periodic Facebook posts on our page [u][color=#0066cc]https://www.facebook.com/cafe935[/color][/u]

- 5 advertising banners on our Perth crypto google website, so when people purchase crypto currency they see the Dash logo and can make contact with questions.

This is my first Dash proposal, I am hoping to get support and approval. Although Australia is far away from Northern America and Europe, I ask for support in the keen interest we have here for Dash.  We are prepared to put in the effort and time.

Thank you

I don't really see people calling a phone number for dash info and support, live chat seems more likely if anything.

You'll be surprised. having a human to talk to gives immediate confidence in someone who makes enquiries compared with a chat room. People who seek information from chat rooms are normally problem solving issues rather than education or confidence building. I talk to people every day about bitcoin and dash over the phone and educate them. Thank you for your comment, it is good feedback.

Just to echo everyone else: I would be more comfortable voting yes for a three month proposal

I looked at your Facebook page, you have DashCoin on the picture - it's not right. Dash and DashCoin are two different things.

I will have to vote no based on the fact that the community at large would like to see 3 month proposals at most. A year of time is far too long for. Take a look at this proposal that was just posted. Looks great but the main problem is the 1 year just like this proposal. https://www.dashcentral.org/p/The_Show_That_Launched_Bitcoin
I do hope the owner of that radio show proposal will reconsider a re-submission of a shorter term proposal.

Keep in mind the community will gladly refund the 5 Dash you have burned to do this in your next proposal if you work with us to make it a success. Before your next proposal be sure to post a pre-proposal on the Dash forums. https://www.dash.org/forum/topic/pre-budget-proposal-discussions.93/
This is the best way to be sure the community is in agreement to vote with you before you even make a post.

I do like what you are doing here and please come join us in the Dash Slack chatroom - https://dash-nation-invite.herokuapp.com/

Hop on in the #proposals channel and we will discuss further.

Would like to get a little more detail, explore your ideas, and social media presence further. Just want to verify that you will follow through on this, and spreading the right knowledge.

I encourage the use of the Slack Chatroom above to double check on information/speeches. Want to be sure you are disseminating the right info/message in your presentations.

Hi GuerraDiValute
If my project is accepted, I will have more funding to put forward for more promotional material. I am generating a lot of interest in Australia with Dash. However if as you mentioned 3 month is more accepted I will gladly resubmit this proposal for payment frequency.

Please submit a pre-proposal that has a more concrete plan that is feasible on the forums. My votes will stay no until this is done and a shorter proposal is resubmitted. (3month max)

The community will gladly refund the 5 Dash lost in this proposal on your next one if it works out. Please be sure to include that in your proposal info.

I think a 12 month commitment is too long, especially in view of the current price increase.
Reply

Considering the current price increase, I have decreased the proposal by 5 dash per month. This is my first Dash proposal, I hope it can be approved.

3 months proposal would be better.

I would like to change the proposal for 3 months. Can someone please help me do this. When I click edit proposal, there is no option to change duration.

Most of us are going to say the same thing, 12 months is too long, and to be honest the product and results are hard to verify. Also, i am confused, have you already listed this number, or are you about to? I feel like im paying for something you were doing anyway.
