We have a team functioning together with a separate/differing abilities and goals in different part of the country, but we are posting a proposal as a unit to be efficient. We work on a low budget and to do this we must work as a unit.
OBJECTIVE OF PROPOSAL
1. Create a Dash Retirement plan that allows people save a minimum of 1% and Maximum of 5% of their Salary in Dash and Gold daily/monthly/yearly. Fiat will be deducted from the users accounts and the Dash will be sent to the address that the users registered with. NO DASH FUNDS WILL BE HELD WITH ALTSAVINGS.COM.
2. Organize three days summit for 200 SME and merchants in collaboration with the Blockchain association of Nigeria so as to enable the merchants talk about their products and services to over 300 attendees and also to show the crypto ecosystem in Nigeria about the services DashCart and AltSavings render.
3. Target of over 5000 users of DashCart/Altsavings that will automatically mean over 5000 download of New dash wallet and not just download like every other meetups but consistent use of the app and Dash.
4. Training of Nigeria cars/cocoa/timber farmers and importers and Exporters to use Dash as it is faster and cheaper than Fiat. We will be doing a documentary with CNBC Africa on how Dash is been used by farmers, importers and exporters.
5. giving access to the un-banks allow them to be able to use their mobile Top-ups to buy Dash and Gold from AltSavings using the Vaultoro API.
6. Buying and selling of Gold have not been in anyway easy in Nigeria and Africa but with altsavings both the Bank and the Un-banks will be able to easily Buy and sell their Gold using Dash and Mobile topups on our Altsavings App.
7. Exclusive interview and documentary with the first cryptocurrency TV in Nigeria https://cryptotvplus.com and CNBC AFRICA.
8. Using Dash to pay UBER TAXI (in Nigeria alone) booking and payment of flight, hotel, train ticket purchase in over 100 countries in the world including Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Venezuela we will be using Airhob API. This will increase the demand of Dash with an estimate of $50,000 and over $100,000 annually coming from sales of flight tickets, Train tickets, Hotel booking and utility bills with a discount of 5% for all payment in Dash.
Nigeria trade over $128 million worth of BTC yearly and when we meet with a lot of BTC users at the last Africa Blockchain Summit and we spoke about Dash. What they usually reply is; "Why should i buy Dash instead of BTC" ? This have been the frequent questions which for sure Dash has little Use Case in Africa. So a need for merchant Adoption and utility is imperative. We had to create an App (Dashcart.app) that can solve this problem for good. By creating this application we would be able to create a use case for Dash which BTC doesn't have apart from trading. We would be able to transfer most of the BTC users to buy Dash for their travel, electrical bills, TV subscription e.t.c.
What is DashCart:
The first utility application for Dash in Africa that allows flight booking, train tickets, hotel lodging and payment with dash we also have services such as of electrical bills, TV subscription, mobile top up, buying and selling of gift cards and micro transaction we are giving a 5% discount for one year with Dash.We will be partnering with a major exchange called https://belfrics.com. Check out the app on PlayStore or download here: dashcart.app
Altsavings is a product for the northern and western part of Nigeria. There is a demand to invest in gold and majority of the people in the Northern part of Nigeria do that for speculative reasons alone. So they buy Gold when low and sell when high. Many of them do that by selling their golds online: you can see a lot of buying and selling from this site: https://jiji.ng/26-chains/gold.
Our last summit with them made us to create the altsavings app so as to make sure they can easily buy dash on our app without having to sign up with any exchange. They just need to register and add their naira master card along side their Dash address. We are using belfrics.com exchange API on the altsavings site so as to easily disburses DASH as soon as the users add their cards on our platform they also can now use the Dash bought to invest in Gold and they can sell it off easily and receive Dash which can be converted back to fiat via the same platform. We make sure anyone within those region can have a monthly savings in Dash or Gold. We deduct a min of 1% or max of 5% of monthly salary in fiat and convert to Dash and then to Gold. We had over 1,000 signup at the moment as both civil servant and business men where interested in Dash in as much as they can use it to Buy gold using the Vaultoro API effortlessly.
Why the Merchant adoption and integration training?
We have learn a lot from the Venezuela team and we would like to do what they have done for their country too. This will help us achieve Mass adoption in a continent like Africa. By training and integration a dash payment system on their website we will be increasing the use case of Dash in Nigeria which in turn will increase transaction and demand of Dash in Africa.
Return on investment:
1. With a minimum wage of 50,000 Naira and a 5% monthly deduction of fiat to convert to Dash we will be making a sales of $34,722 for Dash monthly which is at a speculative amount of 5,000 customers. Presently we have over 1,000 clients registered on our wait list from the DashyAfrica conference and Blockchain Africa Conference.
1. Over 201 established SME will be registering as both co-operate entity and also their staffs showed so much interest to our platform.
2. With a minimum of 5,000 users for Dashcart.app we will be generating a solid utility for Dash and a min of $34,722 monthly with our present survey.
3. Over 5,000 new users which automatically aims at over 5,000 new and active wallet download.
4. Integrating DASH API to over 201 Best SME from connectnigeria.com and an addition of 100 merchant that have showed interest by training them on how to use the anypay.global POS as the Nigeria naira currency have been included.
5. Ongoing partnership with luno.com, https://nigeria.belfrics.com, Remitano.com, coindirect, Digitalkudi.com e.t.c.
6. Consistent utility for Dash in Africa which will be able to divert the BTC traders to Dash USERS.
7. Global exposure of Dash from CNBC Africa and the first cryptocurrency TV which have started already. They wrote about our product before the launch: https://cryptotvplus.com/dash-drives-adoption-in-nigeria-with-new-products/
WHY WE WILL BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS PROJECT:
1. We have over 1,000 Nigerians registered on the altsavings platform waiting for the full launch.
2. No other cryptocurrency offers this services as we have made our survey and we have been able to know that Many Africans are interested in cryptocurrency but they want easy way to buy and sell their crypto which altsavings have already created. No more registering in exchanges to buy Dash with this services it will be easy and fast.
3. Investing in Gold have been what a lot of Nigerians are interested in so with this services we will be able to make sure Nigerians can use their Dash obtained to buy Gold on our platform using Vaultoro API.
4. Presently crypto is been used for only speculation and no use case in Africa but with the dashcart.app we will be able to use Dash in not just Africa but over 100 countries in the world.

Demo For AltSavings
Dash retirement MVP plan http://altsavings.com is a “Now” and “Future” based software system which has within it all the elements that would quicken adoption; thereby increasing adoption in a way the Dash community has never witnessed.
The system will be in charge of helping people save for their retirement in cryptocurrency (Dash) and also assist people who are somewhat skeptical about the future of cryptocurrency save some parts of their salaries/wages in cryptocurrency so as to edge huge losses if anything goes wrong.
How it works
The system uses a financial model which minimizes losses to the barest minimum for both the fearful and courageous investors, thereby making it possibly for everyone to get involved in the dash revolution. The system works in a manner which only demands insignificant percentage of the investors’ salary so as to deduct that amount every month from the investor’s salary account and then sending it in cryptocurrency (dash) for them a minimum of 1% and Maximum of 5%. NO DASH FUNDS WILL BE HELD WITH ALTSAVINGS.COM
With the way the system design has been laid out, all that is required from the investor is that he/she registers on the system, select the bank they operate with and select the percentage that should be deducted from their accounts and how often it should be deducted (i.e. Daily, Weekly or Monthly).
After each customer have added their debit cards, they will be sent a dash kit which contains necessary introductory information about Dash and they will be given free $5 worth of Dash after the first debit on their debit card has been made as a welcome tip and the funds deducted will be converted to Dash and sent back to the clients account.
