PROPOSAL UPDATES

People can use the delivery website through the following links:

Piiddo Venezuela: They have an application available for android and can be downloaded anywhere in the world at the following link:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.piiddo&hl=es&gl=US

It will be available very soon for IOS

Tu encargo Delivery Cabimas: The customer service is through WhatsApp: +58 4246779991


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Venezuela continues to be a great market for Dash, not only because of inflation, but because we resolved many practical limitations of local payment systems, and although dollarization was taking place, there are currently very few banknotes in circulation and banking restrictions for Venezuelans. Dash stands out as a less frictionless solution than many other payment options, including dollars.

  It is difficult to acquire wireless points of sale to receive all the payments for the services we offer, since we make +100 deliveries in our city every day, said one of the owners of Ringo Delivery Oficial. 

PROPOSAL UPDATES:
  We have managed to attract and train 10 delivery services (2 per month) in different cities in Venezuela and with renowned allies, all of them are accepting Dash as a payment method.
 
"PANORAMA" The newspaper with the highest circulation in Zulia and the west of the country where our project is applied is talking about Dash

So, talking to Yoanna, I see that this is not actually a merchant adoption service, but is run thru a middleman service, Piiddoo (sp?).

1. Generic article on Dash used.
2. Somewhat high budget for a Venezuelan simple project (~40K USD total after 1 year which prop. owner suggests.
3. No linked website, how exactly do people find and use this delivery service??

Have to vote no although I like the general idea.

Do you have profit/loss statements we can look at? You are a commercial endeavor.

Voting yes. This project is raising practical use case awareness of Dash both for merchants and also consumers. This is what is required to get Dash established in Venezuela because it helps overcome the "chicken and egg" problem since both parties in the exchange are incentivized to pay with Dash at the same time.

I had a long call with the team this week (over 2.5 hours) they gave me quite some details on the delivery project. They informed me that Dash is exclusive crypto payment on this platform. The merchants like receiving Dash for several reasons but one is that they want to gain exposure to cryptocurrency which is obviously more stable than bolivars. They can also get payments from oversees such as Colombia.

Delivery is also important now in Venezuela due to the problem with coronavirus and people wanting delivery services to their homes. Therefore this project is also benefiting from the coronavirus situation. In addition delivery services are important in a place like Venezuela because people have problems with getting around by car and the costs associated with running a car. Delivery services are therefore of more value in a place like Venezuela compared to other countries. The team informed me that people are learning how to use Dash as part of this program because there are 20% discounts available when paying with Dash in this app.

I asked Yoana and her team to see if they can negotiate better rates bearing in mind merchants want to receive Dash. Yoana said she will look into this and see if they can achieve this.

Remember I cannot validate all the team have achieved for myself because I have not visited Venezuela. However I can relay on the information I have gained from the many calls I have had with the team. They are also pro-actively sending me their business plan frequently to review and update which I find encouraging and it is clear they are passionate about getting Dash established in the country.

What came across with all the calls I have with Yoana and Hilary is that they feel passion and a sense of satisfaction knowing that they are helping others solve the problem of hyperinflation in Venezuela.

I have encouraged the team to consider how they can collect more validating evidence of what they are achieving and to post this information more frequently on twitter and their social media. This not only helps them win their projects but also MNOs like to see what difference we are making in the country. Hopefully Yoana will take on this suggestion going forward.

@yoanacastillo thank you Yoana. I will continue to work to support your project through our calls and discussing strategies. I have got many ideas I would like for us to try to promote this service outside of Venezuela. e.g. I would like to see if we can promote this service more widely to the 5 million Venezuelans that have fled the country. They need, and want, a simple means to send goods to their family in the country and this delivery service can certainly enable them to do that. Currently sending money to Venezuela is troublesome and difficult to do and if they can get money through they pay high fees. This project can completely bypasses the problems associated with sending money because they will be sending goods instead that don't have the tough regulations. This project has just started and I want the MNO network to know that I will do what I can to help support the team to make this project work.

How many more cycles of funding do you expect to need before you start generating enough revenue not to require a DAO subsidy?

Hi Agnewpickens, thanks for your question.

We project that from this date in a year it will be enough time to incorporate the largest number of the most important deliveries in Venezuela, in addition, to incorporate national and international users who can make their purchases of basic necessities, medicines, food, car parts. and motorcycles, clothes, fast food and everything that their relatives need.

If you have an additional question, we hope you can tell us.

Cheers
Yoana and the team.

Can anyone active in Venezuela vouch for these guys?

Can you provide more details?

While I like the the idea and would be excited for vote for this if you fleshed it out, I'm going to have to withhold judgement until we can learn some more about your plans.

Hello Name3, Thank you very much for your interest in our proposal.

On this occasion we share a press release from El Diario Panorama which is a newspaper of the Zulia state, published in the city of Maracaibo, founded in 1914. For 100 years a social communication medium that enjoys credibility and independence, maintaining as a reference his editorial principles and his honesty with the reader. It is the newspaper with the highest circulation in Zulia and the west of the country where our project is applied and it is talking about Dash Efectivo Digital, also, its website is one of the most visited in the region thanks to its opinion columns, national and regional news.

https://www.panorama.com.ve/novedades/Aprendiendo-sobre-la-criptomoneda-Dash-20201116-0010.html

We hope this is a great way to show that our project is bearing fruit in Venezuela, and we will share more details in our proposal.

Regards,
Yoana and the team

Interesting to see 6 yes votes already, when the proposal text is still missing. Both here on Dash Central and on Dash Nexus. There are only 11 days left of voting, so if i was the proposal owner, i would fix this ASAP.
