Dash Embassy Turkey Q2 - 2019 Proposal
First, let us summarize why Turkey craves for an unconfiscatable, censorship resistant, easily transferable, global Digital Cash.
Why should the Network fund a Dash Embassy in Turkey?
High Inflation, High Interest Rate, and Devaluation of the Turkish Lira:
Turkey faced waves of legitimate economic crises throughout its years, and it is facing a new one lately ranging from the devaluation of its currency to high inflation and interest rates forcing the country into stagflation. Unfortunately, there has been no monetary and economic stability for over 5 years; The Turkish Lira is constantly losing its value, and people are seeking alternatives.
- Turkey is one of the Top 10 countries with the Highest Inflation Rate.
- Turkey is one of the Top 5 countries with the Highest Interest Rate.

Inflation Rate by percentage:

According to ING: https://think.ing.com/uploads/reports/ING_International_Survey_Mobile_Banking_2018.pdf
18% of the Turkish population (14.4 million people) own cryptocurrencies
45% of the Turkish population (36 million people) expect to own cryptocurrencies in the future.
53% of the Turkish population (42.4 million people) believe cryptocurrencies are the future of spending online
Turkey plays a critical role as a transcontinental Eurasian country that stretches across Southeastern Europe and Western Asia.
The country holds a population of 82 million, and 50% of this number is under the age of 30 (https://www.indexmundi.com/turkey/age_structure.html). This young generation of 40 million is born in Turkey’s digital era; therefore, they instinctively use and prefer digital payment methods for their day-to-day transactions.
Turks make up one of the largest minorities in Germany with more than 4 million people. According to a report by Wirtschaftswoche, a German business magazine, a total of 5.1B Euros were transferred from migrants living in Germany to their families abroad. Based on data obtained from the German Central Bank Deutsche Bundesbank, the Turks make up the majority of these transfers; Approximately, 822M Euros in 2018(https://www.wiwo.de/unternehmen/banken/geldtransfers-aus-deutschland-migranten-ueberwiesen-5-1-milliarden-euro-in-ihre-heimatlaender/24182072.html).
What will the DAO get out of this proposal?
Our overall goal is to establish Dash as a safe harbor for the Turkish population and increase the adoption of Dash as a means of payment in our country.
We want to increase the number of FIAT on and off ramps (Exchanges) and make Dash available for Lira purchases. Together with Dash Embassy D-A-CH we had first talks with https://www.paribu.com/ and https://www.btcturk.com/ and will take over those leads completely as soon as we get funded.
Due to our demographics (https://www.indexmundi.com/turkey/age_structure.html) we know that most of these young people are into gaming. The gaming industry's revenue is expected to show an annual growth rate of 6.1%, resulting in a market volume of $371M by 2023.
User penetration is at 19.6% in 2019 and is expected to hit 30.9% by 2023 (https://www.statista.com/outlook/203/113/video-games/turkey). This target group is already familiar with digital payments and alternative money such as in-game currencies. This is why we decided to focus on the gaming industry in the beginning stages as the first tile in a row of dominoes. We believe they will be the first adopters of DASH.
We plan to organize several free Turkish Coffee & DASH meetups on highly populated venues like i.e. Shopping malls, Starbucks, Hotels. We will be introducing DASH as an unconfiscatable, censorship resistant, easily transferable, global Digital Cash.
In addition, we will organize free educational workshops at universities and high schools. We will have a presentation in Turkish inspired by the Dash Meetup presentation on https://docs.dash.org/en/stable/marketing.html and contribute it to the network, so every Turkish native speaker can download and use it.
In the future we will try to arrange sponsorships for e-Sports Teams & Events. You might see an additional proposal for that in the upcoming months.
We will use a copy of the https://www.dash-embassy.org/en/ website like the team from Dash Embassy Thailand did. We will translate it into Turkish, localize it, and make some region specific changes and publish it right on this website: http://dashturk.org/
We will share content from DashNews (https://dashnews.org/) and translate posts of https://blog.dash.org/ and publish them on our website http://blog.dashturk.org/ along with our Social Media Channels:
- Twitter: https://twitter.com/dash_turk
- Telegram: https://t.me/dashturkey
- Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dash_turk/
- Facebook: Coming
- Youtube: Coming
As explained above the remittance market between Turkey and Germany is one of the most vital in Europe. Together with Dash Embassy D-A-CH we will try to advertise Dash as the #1 solution for remittance between Turkey and Germany by organizing educational events with Turkish organizations in Germany like http://www.tdz-berlin.de/, https://tghamburg.de/. In these events, we will demonstrate step-by-step how easy and instant the process is to use Dash compared to other methods.
To reach our goals in the most efficient way we aim to become a member of PR connectory and BizDev connectory to collaborate with other POs and DFOs all around the globe.
Our team includes front runners from different backgrounds that will help speed-up the adoption of Dash in Turkey.
We are ready to devote our youth and do whatever it takes for to this noble cause.

Budget for Q2 2019
We request 295 Dash for Q2/2019 (98.34 Dash per month) + The proposal fee reimbursment.
With a 30-day SMA (simple-moving-average) price of $110 per Dash from https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/price-dash-sma30.html#3m on April 15, 2019.
With Dash, Turkey will have an option, a door, a red pill, a light in its pitch-black darkness!
With Dash, the Turkish people will be woke enough to realize that they do not need to abide by any rules forced upon them.
With Dash, the Turks will politely opt out of any monopoly, cartel and kleptocratic system they had to tolerate.
Your vote shapes history and has the power to turn hope into reality!
Not just for Turkey but for the entire ecosystem of Dash and its network.
Dash set off to lift dark clouds and bring down blockades to free nations; as Dash Embassy Turkey, we want to be part of this revolution to serve and bring value to humanity.
With your support we will grow our embassy, get to action, and reach goals one by one.
We appreciate your time, interest and consideration.
Teşekkürler! (Thank you!)
