The Dash Leopards soccer teams are the first in the world to be funded by Dash blockchain technology. Soccer is without doubt the most popular sport in Africa. Indeed, soccer is probably the most popular sport in every African country. We promote awareness and adoption of Dash to thousands of people, through soccer.
The proposal fee for this project was kindly loaned to us by @JZA from Dash Global. In previous months, we have also been funded by instantkarmafund.org, DashForceNews, DashDirect and others.
- Thank you all for making this possible!
Our initial success of supplying fully Dash-branded soccer uniforms to the teams generated huge community interest, and our intention is to now continue and expand this project.
Introduction to the Proposal Owner
The Proposal Owner is Slottle Addams, known as @DashingDude, a frequent participant in the Dash forums and a Com.Sci geek. Before creating Dash Africa he worked for many years as a software dev, manager, entrepreneur, and university lecturer. For 10 years, he worked voluntarily part-time as a network engineer, deploying a wireless WAN infrustructure at 17 schools in remote rural areas with the Siyakhula project.
The kids already wear prominent Dash Branded uniforms, and Dash-branded banners will be displayed at every match.
Kids are quick learners and quick adopters... and when their parents, friends and relatives ask about Dash, the kids will teach them! They all know already that:
- Dash is Digital Cash
- Like Bitcoin but better because it is private and instant
- If you save your Dash, it becomes worth more over time.
Scope of work
- Each team will appoint one or more Dash Ambassador(s) who will attend matches. We will train the ambassador, who will have a table beneath the gazebo. The ambassador will answer questions about Dash and give away swag such as bumper stickers. Dash Leopards supporter shirts will be on sale at a low price, to people who pay in Dash.
- Dash will enter local circulation through meet-up progams organized by Dash Ambassadors.
- Merchant adoption - we have several merchants who are interested, and two more who have adopted Dash already.
- Each team member and coach receives a fully branded soccer uniform + kit (done).
- Dash-branded soccer-balls, cones, portable goalposts.
- Banners and gazebos will be bought for display at matches.
Dash is Good
The children are supervised doing their homework and assignments before they play soccer. Then they play soccer until their parents arrive home. This keeps them off the street, out of gangserism, and away from drugs. This will perpetuate the belief that Dash is a "good" kind of money.
We will continue to regularly report on our progress, as we have in the past.
