Proposal description


Dash Maracay 2nd and 3rd Conferences: Merchants Only(June) and Users Only (July) / Venezuela


Hello everyone, If you have not yet voted, you still have time to vote favorably on the Venezuelan proposals.


if your vote was negative for our proposal, It may be a good time to change your opinion. In the link shown below you can see an interview with the superintendent of cryptocurrencies in Venezuela, Carlos Vargas who said that the "Petro" is in the adoption stage.Remember that Petro will only take 12% of criptoassets market in Venezuela.

The conferences have proven to be an effective tool to promote the adoption of Dash in Venezuela, it seems very risky to decide not to support the proposals of Venezuela at this time.

https://www.dashmaracay.org.ve/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Diapositiva1.jpg

This proposal consists of making 2 consecutive conferences that will have specific objectives each one, with different public as well. The first conference will be held in June focused on merchants only. The second conference will be held in the month of July focused on general public.

Both conferences will have the same theoretical-practical format used in our previous conference in April, where attendees received in the morning the basic knowledge necessary to use Dash as a method of payment, and in the afternoon they attended to "Dash City" fair, where they lived the experience of buying local products with Dash.  

Below you can see the videos summaries of the event of April 19
Conference
Dash City Fair

It is important to indicate that the event called "Users Only " will be held at the Hyper Jumbo Mall, where attendees can buy at any of the stores of this Shopping Center


Justification:

After our successful first conference held on April 19 here in Maracay, we have been invited to a series of meetings with businessmen, merchants and professional guilds. From these meetings we understood that it is necessary to separate the different targets in each conference; that is, the information required by an entrepreneur or merchant (Seller) is very different from the information required by a person from the general public (Buyer), since there are different interests in each one of them.

These meetings have motivated us to propose these 2 consecutive conferences.  The Conference called “Merchants Only" is aimed specifically to Business Owners, Freelancers and Senior Business Executives; it will expose the basic tools necessary for companies to adopt Dash as a method of payment. After this conference, we estimate that a significant number of stores will adopt Dash as payment method. For this event we will especially invite the Business owners of the Hyper Jumbo Mall stores.

In this way we will be ready for the following event, "Users Only”

"Users Only" will explain to the general public how and where to use Dash as a payment method.  This Conference will be held at Hyper Jumbo Mall, one of the most important Mall of the City, where there is more than 200 stores.

In Venezuela there is a problem of hyperinflation, according to experts in economics, it is estimated that this year Venezuela will suffer an inflation of 13,000%, which means that the Bolívar is worth less every day. Dash is the best alternative to protect people's money.

Proposal Main Goal:
The main goal of this proposal is to establish Dash as the main payment method in the Central Region of Venezuela.


Dash Maracay 2nd Conference: "Merchants Only"
 

This event will take place in June and will be aimed exclusively to Business Owners and Freelancers. The conference will provide the necessary tools to implement Dash in theirs business.

Our Dash Maracay Community Platform allows us to segment the target audience.  We have more than 1500 registered in our community, where more than half of them are business owners and freelancers.

Strategies for adopting Dash within businesses will be explained; for example, the accounting process that must be followed in Venezuela when using Dash and the different marketing strategies that can be applied.

Conference: 500 Attendees
Place: Hotel Pipo Internacional
Target: 100%
  • Business owners
  • Freelancers
  • Senior Business Executives
Dash City Fair:
  • 40 entrepreneurs
  • 500 Attendees

Dash Maracay 3rd Conference: Users Only 
This event will be held in July and will be focused on how to use Dash to acquire products, savings and capital protection. 

Through this conference, users will understand the alternatives that Dash has, its use, benefits and attributes.  It can even serve as a means of saving.

The hyperinflation problem in Venezuela would motivate the users to use Dash in order to protect their capital, because people lose quickly the value of their work.  The idea is to teach attendees how to protect their money by exchanging theirs Bolivars to Dash, so they can plan their purchases without losing the value of their work.

Essentially, this would mean a change in the consumer behavior.

Conference:
500 Attendees
Place: Hyper Jumbo Mall
Target: 
  • General public that has never attended any previous conference
Dash City Mall:
  • 650 Attendees

Total Budget in 2 Payments

In conclusion, with these two events, your support and hand and hand with Dash Venezuela,  we will continue to promote the adoption of Dash in the Central Region of Venezuela.

Maracay is one of the largest cities in Venezuela and therefore essential this city converts to using DASH.

Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world more than Saudi Arabi, Canada, Iraq or Iran.

See this reference oil reserves: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_proven_oil_reserves

This therefore makes Venezuela one of the richest countries in the world but it cannot realise that wealth due to US sanctions and its weak currency that is being blocked. If Venezuela establishes DASH as its primary currency the country will have a solid currency which is uncensorable. Venezuela would then be able to invest in its petroleum industry and bypass sanctions.

If we establish DASH in Venezuela, which is looking increasingly likely if we keep sponsoring these conferences and promotional activities in Venezuela the wealth of this oil rich country will transfer to its currency. If that currency is DASH we will see a huge increase in the DASH price. The valuation of Venezuela oil is around 14.5 Trillion USD. That is excluding its oil Sands oil. The oil Sands reserves are higher than the entire world's reserves from every country combined:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_reserves_in_Venezuela

Crude oil is not just used to produce gasoline to fuel transport. It is also used to make all plastics. Look around your room how many objects contain plastic of one form or another? Pharmaceuticals have their base from oil, Fertilizers and pesticides all require oil. Refrigeration, paints and protective coatings all require oil. A country that has large oil deposits is a very wealthy nation if it has a sound currency and if it free to trade. If we can establish DASH as the national currency of Venezuela the country will then be able to get back on its feet and gain access to these tremendous natural oil resources. The oil resources alone, excluding oil Sands is valued at 14.5 Trillion USD for a nation with only 32 million people.

Think for a moment. Imagine the immense wealth that would be released if Venezuela has a sound, uncensurable currency like DASH. Imagine what that would do to the DASH price? It would explode the price.

Sponsoring these conferences is a small low risk investment with a huge upside return if we can help convert Venezuela to DASH. The Venezuela teams are making tremendous headways to establishing DASH as Venezuela's national currency. We need to focus and provide these teams as much support as we possibly can to make this happen. The rewards for DASH are astronomical if we are successful in establishing DASH as the national currency in Venezuela. All we have to do is keep focused and keep supporting these Venezuela projects. Keep on track supporting these teams who are giving their all to establish DASH in Venezuela. These conferences are a small investment compared to the huge return on investment once Venezuela converts to using DASH.

Currently DASH treasury is sponsoring too many unfocused projects. If we focus all our energy and time and money on Venezuela we can convert the country and once that happens Venezuela can unlock is 14.5 Trillion dollars worth of crude oil and its other natural resources with the world leading to great wealth for the nation. Look at Saudi Arabia how wealthy that country is. However from the reference I have given above Venezuela has more oil that Saudi Arabia. IT just needs a sound, uncensurable currency like DASH establish. The Venezuelan people with then do the rest. These conferences are a small price to pay for the return we will get with DASH as a currency in a country plus the world wide news that will generate. It would be the best advertisement that DASH could ever dream of. I cannot think of any DASH projects with such a huge upside return on investment if we can achieve our goal. But in order to do that we need to stand behind these teams with our funding. It is happening already let us keep it going by voting for these Venezuela projects.

Voting YES

Extraordinary comment DeepBlue ...!

Last month we had the opportunity to attend a conference given by a Senior Official of the Government, where he explained that "EL PETRO" is going to take only 12% of the cryptocurrency market.

This is a great opportunity for Dash, since the rest (88%) will be taken by other Cryptocurrencies ... where Dash could represent a high percentage of this remaining.

We hope that the MNOs evaluate correctly the proposals coming from Venezuela, where both (Venezuela and Dash) obtain the best benefits with a win-win scheme, turning our country into the first Dash Nation.

I'm afraid you've shot yourself in the foot with your title. Try using a descriptive title. I hope more MNOs will read the proposal instead of glancing at the titles and making rash conclusions.

Hello TanteStefana, totally in agreement with your assessment, the original title that we proposed would describe the route to reach a final goal: "Dash Nation", this would be achieved with these 2 consecutive events. But in other languages, ​​this title has other meanings. It is a problem of semantics.

In the future we will be careful about it.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Hello I really want this project to go through because all of the remarkable work that DASH Maracay achieved at their first event. It was a big success several hundred new merchants learning about DASH and over 700 consumers who have learned about DASH and can now actively speak about DASH in their communities. Along with all the network contacts created this networking event is essential for getting DASH established in Venezuela.

I would like to point out that it is not just the title that confused people it is also the main body text and the way the proposal itself has been worded. It was not worded in a way that accurately communicates the significant benefits to the DASH community.

I would advise for you to have an English speaker or at least someone who is trained in proposal writing proof read your proposal in future. To me it looks like a lawyer wrote the proposal. A lawyer may be very good at writing contracts but they do not have the skill set in order to write a proposal that highlights the benefits of this project.

There is still time left and MNOs could take a look at the link below of their first conference there is still time to vote YES for a valuable project that has leaders that are passionate about establishing DASH in Venezuela, they just needed some help writing the proposal in English. Remember it is not their native language. Imagine us writing in Spanish a complex proposal that can convince people of its value.

Here is a video overview of their first event:

As noted, the title is confusing. This has nothing to do with flying. It's about putting on conferences in Venezuela that are not just general introductory information about Dash. One is specifically designed for merchants and the other one is specifically for consumers/end users. Other than the title, this is a good plan and I am voting yes.

Hello, everyone.

Me and my team from DASH Venezuela have been witnesses of the great work DASH Maracay is doing. They have direct contact with a lot of companies in their city.

We are very proud of this new and strong community, born from the team work we all do in Venezuela.

I hope MNO read and vote YES in this proposal, so we can keep on working as allies to make of Venezuela the first DASH Nation.

The proposal of Dash Maracay is very interesting, since the contents are going to be addressed to the 2 sectors in a different way, encouraging businessmen to accept dash.

And driving the public in general, to get whoever accepts Dash

Great idea¡

Thank you very much for your comment ... in effect the idea is that the merchants obtain directly the information they need to adopt Dash as a payment method

It is a good idea to create two separate conferences with a different focus for Merchants and one for Users. This way the effectiveness of the conference will increase significantly because each one has their own specific needs addressed. Once this formula is proven successful this team can share their experience with with the other Venezuela teams to help improve their conferences.

The other advantage of having two distinct DASH conferences is that there will be a significant increase in "social proof" between the attendees. There will be hundreds of merchants altogether in one room. They have specific needs and requirements that users don't have and a focus on their needs at the conference will only lead to better conversion rates and increase confidence - especially when they see hundreds of other merchants present at the same conference. The merchants can also share their experiences amongst each other which acts as another form of training and experience share.

If the merchants attending the conference could all agree to put a card in their window along with a point of sale card e.g. "DASH Digital Cash Accepted Here" To learn how you can accept DASH or buy with DASH visit www.dashhelpme.org/ Then have a special page on the Dash Help website specific for new people to DASH. This would make every Merchant attending the conference into an AD for DASH. Imagine how many customers visit a merchant shop each month. All their customers would be exposed to the DASH Point of Sale Ads repeatedly each time they make a visit to their shops.

By making the conferences specific the organizers will also learn more about the needs of the merchants because all the questions raised will be merchant focused. The learnings from the conference could be fed back to "Dash Merchants" team to improve the effectiveness of that other campaign.

I think MNOs may however be confused by the title of this proposal: "Flying to Dash Nation, Living in Dash Nation" . How is this title related to the conferences? MNOs only have a few minutes to make a decision. If they do not know exactly what the proposal is offering from the title they may not vote until it is clarified. MNO's do not have much free time to assess a proposal. I think this proposal would benefit from changing the title to be more indicative of what you are putting forward.

It took me quite some time to try and figure out what this proposal was actually offering because of the confusing title. I am sure I am not alone in this confusion. I am certain MNOs want to vote for another successful Venezuela conference which converts hundreds of people and merchants to active promoters of DASH. Building on the considerable momentum we have now in Venezuela. However MNOs may not vote due to the confusing title.

Something like this would be better:

Two Venezuela DASH Conferences: June: Merchants only / July: Users only / Maracay City Venezuela.

The last conference for DASH Maracay was a big success. Now this team have experience in running a successful conferences they can only get better and I suspect that is how they got the idea to have conferences with separate focus.

DASH Maracay have a youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTnlS6XEKCrmyaYJFyLqsOgand with an introduction the conference from Tao of Satoshi on the last conference.

Could you change the proposal title so that other MNOs know at a glance what is is your are providing and remove all mention of planes - as far as I can see it is not needed and only causing confusion for an otherwise well thought out proposal.

Our website (www.dashhelpme.org) is completely available for what DeepBlue is proposing. It is a great opportunity to promote any kind of information related to Dash and support.

Actually in our Dash Merchant Venezuela program, we are providing merchants with stickers and banners with this information.

Thanks DeepBlue for sharing your ideas, they are always very usefull!

We are very sorry for the confusion created with our proposal. Your appreciations made us understand the problem that was being presented.

We will proceed to change the title and images presented, as soon as we have the material ready, we will make the changes in the proposal.

For this event we will invite the team of Dash Help and Dash Merchant, their contribution is essential to complement the conference. We will also be accompanied by the Dash venezuela team, a fundamental piece to promote the adoption of Dash in Venezuela.

Thank you very much Criticalinput, we appreciate your support..!

Our first event was a total success ... everyone in Maracay only talks about Dash ..! The main objective of positioning the brand was fulfilled.

Equally, we developed a web platform specially designed to manage the community. This allows us to see who is part of our community and which segment they belong to. This helps us a lot to plan the events according to the interests of the people who live in our sector.

We currently have the news channel enabled, then activate the Community tab, where all people can interact with each other.

Our website was designed as a landing page, where all the news can be replicated in our social networks, this is another strength that it has.

Finally, the platform can also be used by writers who touch on topics related to our community, they can write their own articles and thus the whole community benefits.
