Proposal description

Cross post from Dash Forum: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/dash-aerosports-vehicle-new-branding-alignment.40789/

++++ Our schedule didn’t allow me to post till late in the cycle (National Air Races). Thank you for a 4:1 yes vote. In my opinion, we just lack the voting activity, which is probably do to lack of timeframe posted. Hopefully, we’ll pick up some more yes votes early in the October cycle and we can get reimbursed through the remaining months of this proposal.

Thank you everyone, for your continued support.

Dash AeroSports Vehicle New Branding alignment

Dash AeroSports is submitting this current proposal to align branding requirements for our team. Dash AeroSports has ensured that our team complies with the new branding directives throughout July, August and Sept events.

We have attempted to refrain from any proposals during the constricted funding limits. Our operation has already funded the current vehicle branding. We have broken the proposal request into 4 payments to ensure the smallest draw placed on the treasury system.

The Dash Bus, Dash Force One Virtual Reality experience, crew car, and Dash Force One Jet are currently engaged in monthly events while interacting with crowds between 80,000 to 250,000 spectators each.

Dash AeroSports has demonstrated in the past that our team will also utilize the Dash Branded fleet at other ground-based events as well. Miami Bitcoin Conference, Boca Raton Fashion Show, etc. We intend to seek and attend as many events as possible throughout the remaining 2018 and 2019 schedule.

The Dash AeroSports Fleet has already been featured on NBC Sports TV footage. Events have taken the Dash Bus from Florida to Oregon and back already this month. Thousands of miles, coast to coast throughout the US.

We believe the Dash Bus fleet wraps provide one of the greatest values in advertising for Dash. Large, professional and clearly seen from great distances.

Total Dash Request = 147.3Dash / 37Dash for 4 Months

If I had more "Yesses" to give, I would give them. The list of goodies that Dash gets for this almost trivial asking price, is amazing.

answer or statement to question posted:

480,000 views per episode of NBC sports (9 Episodes). 300,000 Spectators over the next 30 days of shows. 9 media flights with each news broadcast touching 70,000 viewers hearing about "Dash the Fastest digital payment on the planet and how our team is powered by Dash..." 12 months of 2019 schedule included with these Dash team wraps. All for "at cost" of the wrap. This is below the cost of a single booth during a single crypto conference.

These wraps are 40% below industry normal prices as I utilized my previous business relationship for wholesale and not retail pricing.

Our team is asking for the cost and nothing more so that we can continue spreading Dash as a brand. We wish to continue explaining to our audience and the news media how we are powered by Dash. What dash is, how to get dash, how to use dash, etc.

We have engaged other sponsors for operational cost, yet we remain with Dash as the primary and title sponsor for our team because we believe this is our community and wish to support the adoption/growth of dash.

Regards,

Scott

As you can see this is not just stickers and posters! Scott and his team are in contact with many high net worth individuals. I encourage everyone to watch some of the NBC Reno footage and or come out to one of the events and see for yourself.

One of the things that's a bit hard to quantify is the level of support and enthusiasm for Dash in real life. Except in the case of Scott Farnsworth and his team. They leave a string of new Dash supporters wherever they go. Waitresses in the restaurant, the guys who supply his fuel. It just never stops.

This is a tiny ask for a big return. And he is constantly looking for other ways to promote the ecosystem like the FanDuel deal. Let's at least cover his teams expenses for the makeover.

Solarguy,

Thank you. I'm hoping it's clear that we are still doing everything we did in the past, but for free to the Dash network while we wait for the industry to recover. This proposal is simply the vehicle wraps into the current branding... at cost.

We are promoting, continue to demo wallets and demonstrate dash transactions without asking for proposal funding. I don't think the Treasury has room for a Dash AeroSports budget currently. I've signed contracts and honestly, in the airshow business, you never go against what you promised to the spectators or airshow organizers. We committed to performing throughout 2018 to several shows and I need to meet these obligations regardless if it's out of my own funds. We hope Dash MN's, through this minimum proposal, allow us to recoup a little of our operational cost forced from the rebranding of Dash.

Besides, these vehicle wraps are the best looking, attention-grabbing billboards!

Everyone stops to take notice! ;)

Thank you for your support,

Scott

Glad to see you are not discouraged and are remaining professional. This really should have passed considering all that you're doing.

Unfortunate that this one didn't pass this time around. With a nice space in the budget for you as well.
The number of MNOs voting does seem to be a little lacklustre of late. We need a rock the vote campaign :D
You will have my continued support moving forward.

I understand that not everbody is a fan, but this price is far below his normal asking price, we have paid more for stickers, and posters than this

Just because we have made the mistake of funding overpriced stickers and posters in the past doesn't mean we have to make the mistake of funding more stickers and posters just because they are cheaper.

I have to say your statement is not supported by reality.

Point of fact: These wraps are 40% below industry normal prices as I utilized my previous business relationship for wholesale and not retail pricing.

Views don't mean anything without converting users and merchants. This is a complete waste of money.

Could you elaborate on how all these views have translated to value for the Dash network?

Voting yes. I'm sometimes a bit sceptical of sponsorship spends, but this one is clearly good. Lots of exposure, actual dash wallets etc, and.. only 37 dash for this payout. Seems worth it to me.

While I appreciate the work you and your team have done and continue to do for Dash, I don't really consider this particular proposal pressing or important in light of other potentially more beneficial expenditures like funding DashBoost, etc, but nonetheless happy to consider this project if there's room in the budget on the merits of your other work.

We appreciate your consideration regarding our proposal. We structured the payout schedule to reflect our desire to minimally affect any pressing funding decisions.

We do have events consisting of 300,000 spectators, 6 media flight presentations covering NBC and Fox news event coverage within the next 30 days. (Each media flight provides 70,000 viewers). This exposure is not counting the 250,000 spectators at the national air races and the NBC Sports coverage we participated in during Sept.

I'm just adding color to the conversation. Dash still needs adoption exposure. Our team is providing a "crypto conference" almost weekly. We provide wallet downloads and a dash transaction where we download the wallet, send dash to the spectator, and the spectator "buys" access to the free VR experience or Dash Tshirt.

In my opinion, the cost of the vehicle wraps given the recurring utilization and marketing exposure provide a strong case for funding.
