Proposal description

Our Mission:
Our proposal is to make Atlanta Georgia a Dash-friendly city. This will be done through training the community, pushing merchant adoption, and introducing Dash to the colleges and universities here in Atlanta. In addition, the media products we create will be globally accessible, introducing Dash to the world in a way that has never been done before.

Why Atlanta?
ATL is becoming the blockchain capital of the world and Dash is nowhere to be seen. No current meetups, no advertising, no consulting, no training, and no merchant adoption. The Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy wants to be the one-stop shop for all of this, and introduce Dash to the growing and diverse crypto community in this “city too busy to hate.”Dash is currency for people who want to live free. This captures the spirit of so many people in Atlanta. The Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy is already established as the go-to place for crypto education, socializing, and networking. It relies on sponsorship from within the industry and is seeking a diverse group.We chose the name “Bitcoin” not because the Embassy represents the “maximalist” position but rather because this is the most recognizable name in the space. The Embassy is all about reaching people, and the Bitcoin name does this best of all for now.That said, the ethos of the Embassy is about choice in currency, choice in assets, and security of property. Dash, with its innovative governance structure and agility as a money, fits beautifully within our mission. This is why our Vault Logic ATM, located right in our office, can distribute Dash daily.

Our Request:
We are requesting 40 Dash per month for 3 months (July 2018 - September 2018) to accomplish our goals and bring Dash to Atlanta. Requesting a total Summer budget of 120 Dash.



ROI For Dash:

  • 10 new merchants accepting Dash

  • Opening of at least 600 wallets in Atlanta

  • 3 large-scale Dash events held in Atlanta.

  • Dash video series from one of the best short filmmakers in the business, hired at a bargain rate.

  • Pushing Dash awareness and benefits to Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy visitors (at least 500 people per month).

  • The top screen of the Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy’s ATM will advertise and push the purchase of DASH.

  • 24/7 1-on-1 training and consulting on Dash topics through the Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy consultant network.

  • Free office space for Dash ambassadors that visit Atlanta.

  • Dash promoted as a sponsor of the Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy

  • Dash Swag in the Bitcoin Embassy for the community of Atlanta to become familiar.

  • Dash branding on Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy website.

Dash Summer Meetups:

  1. July - Blockchain overview and Dash 101 at the Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy
  2. August - How and why to use Dash in your business at the Atlanta Bitcoin Embassy
  3. September - Blockchain overview and Dash 101 at a local university (Georgia Tech, Emory, or Georgia State).

Overall, I like the idea and proposal, but I'm concerned with the large amount of money spent on radio marketing. Who listens to radio, and why should so much be spent on something so ephemeral?

Great question thank you! Our goal is to reach people who in Atlanta who have yet to become involved in the crypto sector. As I'm sure you know, there are limited opportunities for marketing crypto projects. A few other blockchain companies in Atlanta have begun using radio marketing and have seen some great results. By running these 3, week-long radio ads, we will be able to reach over 200,000 listeners that may not know about the Atlanta crypto community or the Bitcoin Embassy. I understand the monetary concern but I believe this is a big opportunity to take users who have heard about bitcoin or crypto and get them seriously engaged in the crypto community through Dash. Of course, the goal is to have these listeners attend our Dash conferences so hearing about Dash on the radio would be just the beginning.
