Proposal description

Hi. I am JZA from the Bitcuners group in Cancun. I was lead on the Dash in Cancun project which we feel was highly successful. We have been planing this continuation of outreach for a while now and finally have all the pieces to launch our latest proposal together. This proposal will benefit and increase the adoption, not only in Latin America but of DASH world wide.
https://i.imgur.com/MJdk1hF.jpg

I am the admin of Facebook DASH (Dinero Digital) and DASH (Digital Cash) groups as well as co-admin of DASH En Español fb page. I am also part of a crypto enthusiast group in Cancun called Bitcuners which successfully did an event recently in Cancun for merchant adoption. You can read an article about the event from one of the assistants.

Today we are launching (landing page) https://dashespanol.com
Youtube Channel: DASH Español

We are starting our network of bloggers, podcasters and experts to provide educational training materials as well as social media to inform the community. With a current network of 5 guys we are starting our network from around the globe. At the moment we have 1 designer, 1 producer, 2 bloggers, and 1 podcaster.

Latin America is a big adopter and player of cryptocurrency with many countries experiencing with tight economic and monetary regulation. Cryptocurrency has been a great opportunity for users to escape the failed economies, extreme corruption and political impunity.

We hope to provide well documented information and get good quality equipment and video editors and produce original work for the DASH network.

What we want
We want to go have this grow, however we want to ask the DASH network for support in acquiring equipment, and some rewards to our team. We are looking for a one month payment of 57 DASH.

    Daily news article in Spanish.
    Weekly podcast on our brand new youtube DASH Español channel
    Weekly opinion blog with summary of the week's event around DASH
    Art and gallery expo for DASH aficionados
    Reward and marketing projects and contests
    Grassroot event rewards

At the moment we will start with the blogs and podcasts as we organize the teams and get the necessary information to get this wheels turning. We don't want to overpromise and underdeliver but we do see that there are some desired things we could achieve with relative ease since we have the necessary communication channels.

Cost distribution
Some of the things we want might need some fixed costs including equipment, location and other related costs.

    Video recording equipment 10 dash
    Production costs 2.5 dash
    Web development cost 8 dash
    Location rent 4 dash
    Team rewards 22.5 dash
    Marketing/Advertising/SEO 5 dash
    Proposal cost 5 dash
    Total: 57 dash

This will allow the community to get better quality information on their native language. We also want to push new ideas that can be integrated into the network.

Technical Notes

We want to build a CMS site using Django CMS hosted on Digital Ocean's Load Balancer on recurrent droplet network, able to handle a heavy load of traffic.
Site will be suing material design layouts with integration to the discuss commenting system.
Video material will be shot in 1080p, with high quality hardware based compression for online distribution.
Studio will be enabled with a high availability fiber network for fast upload of videos.

The Bitcuners group in Cancun Mexico are still actively promoting Dash to local businesses and are awaiting the latest wallet update which will allow Kodaxx’s POS to run smoothly. We are an army waiting for supplies and marching orders. Although we have many merchants already using Dash, the merchants with more complex inventory systems, etc… are looking forward to the Dash POS. which needs a few capabilities from the Core team’s next release.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to serving Dash again soon.

Great interview with Tao:

Now that I have had this opportunity to get to know you, and understand your skills and your perspective and your plan for the Dash Spanish information outlet, you have my votes!

I would encourage people to go watch the video and go vote!

Venezuela alone could zoom Dash to 3rd place, or perhaps 2nd place in market cap. And it would do more good for everyday Venezuelans than all the "help" that foreign aid and foreign intervention could ever do.

This proposal would:

Help Venezuela,
Help Mexico,
Help Spain,
Help Central and South America
Help all of the spanish speaking world,
Help Dash!

Demographic fact of the day, there are more native spanish speakers than there are native english speakers.

We need to get this done, and JZA has the skills and the motivation and the connections to accomplish this.

Again I say, go vote.

Yesterday we had our 2nd Dash meetup with another establishment accepting Dash, (https://www.facebook.com/pg/dashtecas/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1970476623195261)
but we need more information in Spanish, it´s dificult to convince establishments to accept Dash, becouse they don´t know Dash and they don´t trust Dash. Dashenespañol site will help us building that Trust from the establishments. Everyday more people wants to know about criptocurrencies and Dash.

Anyone who doesn't know who JZA is, he has been involved in Open Source for decades. Again, here is one of his profiles, this is with Open Office: https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/User:JZA and his network of friends is immense. I've been pushing JZA to do these projects because I think he is a real asset for Dash. He is a networking powerhouse, that is, contacts with people all over the world. He KNOWS everyone!

So for me, this project is more than the sum of it's parts, but - not unlike being lucky enough to have gotten Amanda interested in Dash - having JZA involved in Dash, spreading the word, etc... JZA is a Latin American/Europe Espanol ASSET. Please vote for this project.

This is a great project to put Dash into the knowledge of the spanish-speaker community. JZA is a enthusiast of the cryptos, personally I have learned a lot from him.
I know some MN have concern about quality, this is a very important fact. Recently, he made an update, dealing with a professional editor and I believe this is a ahead step in this project.

Understanding crypto is already a hard time for most people, and if you are a Native Spanish speaker living in a Spanish speaking country double so. I am a crypto enthusiast trying to spread the word around me but the language barrier becomes a problem when trying to point others in to doing their own research for better understanding and keeping up with the market. *The crypto space needs this*.

We need more information out there... EN ESPAÑOL!

I know JZA for some time and I'm sure he has selected a good team of "real people" that now believe in Dash and are willing to keep working to make the network grow.
Unfortunetly most of the people in latinamerica doesn't understand english and the news and information about Dash keeps growing, we shpuld use all the translation efforts we can.

Support "Dash en Español"

Great Opportunity for the dash adoption here in Mexico (Mexico city). I am in cryptos since 2014 , and by now few really know what is dash. This proposal is going to boost dash communities here and all latin america!!

I think this not only a GREAT proposal for the promotion of Dash but a vital necessity. Word of mouth advertising is the best form of advertising but jza's proposal is logical and cost effective to the promotion of not only Dash but crypto currencey. I support this proposal because this would facilitate what is currently lacking in the region, an honest News outlet/podcast to educate and enlighten the country.
I believe great content and positivity will be provided if this proposal meets approval.

Hi I am from Paraguay and Brazil, I can see how DASH has a great traction in this part of the world and I believe that a lot more people would be greatly benefited by having a DAO that delivers news and shows online. I am also from Bitcuners and I can see that JZA and the rest of the guys work really hard on pushing the DASH message, and would guaranteed they will be greatly succesful. They seem to have a conservative budget and trying to not overextend their reach. They will succesfully deliver what has been promised to the network.

Sound interesting the comunity needs more info in a differen lenguage... most of us have dificulties to understund, the different mecanism of the criptoworld.
Reply

I have always felt that grass roots efforts are the most powerful efforts, spreading the knowledge to "normal" people more so than anything else because, generally, you spread the information face to face, with real human connection. This is far more powerful than a TV commercial, which takes, according to some marketing rule, 7 viewings to remember, and has nothing to say about actually moving the viewer to act.

one on one sounds really s*l*o*w, however, due to the exponential effect, it grows quickly and extremely effectively. Ultimately, it's far cheaper, in my opinion, as well.

This proposal, though, is not really for commercials, it's for spreading information. Once you have people interested, they can access the details via this proposal's videos, etc... This is just as important. Accessing the information after being convinced you should look into something. It is imperative that we start making the information accessible.
Reply
5 points,4 months ago
The last DASH sponsored event the Bitcuners hosted was a smashing success. It was so well organized and the turnout was impressive.

Seeing the DASH billboard displayed in Cancun in such a prominent, high-traffic area was a great surprise. The local press you're generating and the growth of awareness and use of cryptocurrencies you're responsible for, especially among business ownwers, is something you should be proud of.

You're doing great work to further the cause. Mexico is an ideal place to crypto to florish and your continued efforts are greatly appreciated and supported. Your tenacity and helpfulness in raising awareness and understanding of crypto in this area is commendable.

Keep doing what you do so well. This community supports you.

Looking forward to more great work from JZA's crew! Big YES! I especially loved Dash on the municipal buses, that was very cool. These guys are really growing (Bitcuners and their network) and I am really glad to see such a force being created for Latin America and Latins around the world! Very awesome!

It is an excellent idea, this would help the adoption of DASH in the latin community where the great obstacle to overcome many times is the language. The content generated with this proposal would be very helpful in understanding how the currency works and the benefits it offers in adopting it.

The bitcuners community is doing a great job helping people get started in the crypto world. Vote YES
Reply

what JZA says is true we are an army waiting for supplies, so we can convince the merchants to adapt Dash in their daily business. For many people is hard to understand what Dash, cryptocurrencies, blockchain is and is harder to understand it in a foreign language. Dash would be the only currency with spanish information available and that would give the merchants trust to Dash. It´s a great idea.
Reply
5 points,4 months ago
Hell yeah! this is something very needed is this area. This project could help a lot about the knowledge of DASH, we already know the "Name" because of some advertisement we saw on some buses and the big promotional in front of a very important mall here in Cancun.

Now cancun knows something about DASH, and i belive that this project could be more productive. If the people can see that this is real, that there is a huge support ,not only regional, but international!!! and more important in a place where literaly lives from the income from the tourists. Dash could emerge as as solution and oportunity for local bussiness and for the communty.

This is just the beginning, i feel the proyect can get support from the network, this could grow to local resorts, and in a not so far future, and get reservations online paid with DASH.

I agree and excited about this!!! Encourage the Masternodes to vote YES on this one. Congratz!!!

The whole cripto community is still pretty new for the common folk, and this barrier is even more daunting when most of the technical and not that much is in the english language. Are efforts like this to spread the word that will allow the widespread use of Dash and the criptocoins.

I have been in the meetups and can say that the events that have been made along with the regular meetups are making ground for people to realize the potential of use Dash, which in turn helps to make that people use it.

Thanks to Dash for all the support until and hope to continue helping to spread the use of Dash and criptoworld in general in LATAM and the world.

Reply
-4 points,4 months ago
Because someone with the correct experience would already have his own equipment. equipment isn't a issue, the quality of what is created is. So whatever he has now should be do-able. When he improves so does the equipment payed for out of his own pocket with money we give him over time.

Equipment is personally owned. It does not provide value for Dash, and only provides value for the person owning the product he purchased.
Reply

We need the DASH information in Spanish so we can have more merchants that adopt Dash. If we have more merchants and people adopting Dash, it will give Dash great value. It´s a good investment.
Reply
1 point,4 months ago
Yes but what that he will do with the equipment is important for dash don't see the equipment it just a tool the see the result final that is educate all latam and next the world about dash. so if Jza and we know that him and his team can do that why buy equipment will be a problem. and isn't the first proposal that people ask dash for sponsorise their tools to make something.
I just think that see the best face of the proposal don't create problem.
Reply
5 points,4 months ago
Another situation we got, is that we plan to get professional video personel, however they work for a company and hiring it as a company will be way too expensive mainly because of their equipment so its actually is cheaper to acquiring the equipment ourselves than requesting it from the production firm.
Reply
5 points,4 months ago
I have been doing podcasts for a long time now, however I want to upgrade it. A good example of similar issue was @tao where cash alternative asked for a new laptop to be able to do its interviews, doesnt meant he didn't do an interview but it will definetly help. Now I can do this on a Hangout fashion out of my car or my room like other crypto podcast but I want this to look much more appealing to the viewers and that inquiries on costs. If you have worked with video podcasts they are constantly switching equipments, new technologies, better mics or just equipment that looked good on paper but didn't quite worked as well on the field. This require a budget, that is taken from the budget that it takes to do the show.
I follow many podcasts and the better produced like TWIT once said that it cost around 5,000 dls per episode. I don't know it all went in electricity, and the hourly wage of the people in it.
As for delivering value, this wont be a 1 month situation, I hope, I am targeting to grow and become even better. So I project that more equipment will be acquired, new talent will be hired and production equipment would be coming down the pipeline.
The real question IMO is how much will this all cost and is you think is too expensive and compared to whom. For example Amanda asked for 120 DASH for 4 episodes of DASH detailed, making it around 20k right now, back then (let say $80) is 9600, making it around 2,400 dls per episode. I am currently asking for 2,300 dls (14 dash) for rent AND equipment for all 4 episodes.
Just saying that you should also take this into account.
