COMPLEMENTING CURRENT INITIATIVES:

One of DASH’s most successful proposals is the DASH Aerosports initiative.

“rated by most MasterNodes as “Excellent” or "an example for others to follow" regarding execution, delivery of added value based on rising DASH value and commitment to cross-marketing with fellow proposals, doubling the global Dash ATM count and market penetration utilizing our relationships and exposure of the Dash brand to over 1 million live spectators (currently), completely wrapped Dash Bus and trailer that travels coast-to-coast, will include NBC sports coverage in the 1st quarter 2018, including local media interviews at every attended airshow throughout the US-Brazil-Europe, we purchased control over content creation for our team's Docu-series on our extreme AirRace and airshow team, expert brand development with a focus on brand protection…”

This proposal aligns and complements that initiative in many ways:
● Anchoring major Air Shows (Sebring, Reno, Oshkosh, etc.) with the DASH Jet in the air, DASH Jet Pit Area, DASH Spectator engagement area...PLUS: DASH activation within the Drone Race
● Aligning with aviation enthusiasts - Full Scale Aviation and RC Flight - Jet Racing and ‘Show and Shine’ Airshows have the most affluent racing & show spectator base in USA; RC Flight is the fastest-growing and highest affluent market within RC
● DASH will be showcased in front of millions of qualified users around the globe while engaging an abundance of potential adopters
● Driving (or flying) home that DASH is the FASTEST Digital Cash!


BENEFIT TO THE DASH COMMUNITY:
Unlike “most” sponsorship proposals, this proposal literally converts affluent, tech-savvy potential DASH adopters into DASH users. Plus, it has all of the great marketing initiatives that continues to build DASH brand awareness like REACH, EXPOSURE and ENGAGEMENT.

It is projected that over 500 DASH (as a bare minimum) will be utilized by brand new DASH adopters in year 1 through MultiGP Drone Racers acceptance of DASH Digital Cash as currency for Race Fees, Store Merchandise, Prize Purses and even salaries and sponsorships (excluding this proposal!)

USE OF FUNDS:
First and foremost, the DASH investment will be utilized for the sourcing and acquiring all of the branded materials: Gates, Flags, Banners, funding event managers’ DASH wallets for INSTANT purse pay-offs, Jerseys, T-Shirts and assorted marketing materials. Next, investment will be made into answering the questions:

● What is cryptocurrency today (2018)?
● What is DASH?
● Why do I want to adopt DASH?
● How do I get DASH into my wallet today?

… through this engaging and interactive sponsorship activation proposal.

WHAT IS MULTIGP AND DRONE RACING:
Drone Racing has emerged to be one of the fastest growing and most exciting sports in modern history. This fusion of technology and human reflexes is as close to a real life video game as you can get. Pilots race drones around courses at up to 100 miles per hour at local, regional, national and international competitions. The new sport is propelled by using VR goggles that allow drone pilots to fly the agile machines as if they are sitting in the cockpit. It is a sport that has no age or gender barrier, and has generated events that have collectively had millions of dollars in prize purses for participants.

MultiGP is the largest professional drone racing league in the world. Because of this, MultiGP hosts frequent competitive gatherings and casual events within its extensive network. The Organization currently has over 20,000 registered pilots in addition to 500 active chapters worldwide. MultiGP nurtures its Chapters by providing tools, guidance and community support. Due to this structure drone racing is fun, organized and rewarding for pilots, Chapter Organizers and spectators.

MultiGP delivers engaging and interactive experiential brand moments using Immersive Technology that wows: beyond solely signage, digital assets and brand ambassadors, while leading the Industry in additional livestreaming and Virtual Reality experiences. These activations are extremely versatile and provide a cohesive program to align with partners’ initiatives and individual brand messages.

i dont get why this proposal is not being supported. This is a much less violent sport than the MMA, and is also more tech-driven people and also younger demographic. I think is fun and is not asking a huge amount of Dash compared to the MMA one. I would love to encourage MNO to vote Yes on this proposal. I love the fact that also young people are more engage with cryptocurrency.

That said, consider using dash as a mean of payment, so for example if you decide to sell merchandise online through DASH as a case for engagement.

Dear DavidR,
Im a fan of Drone. Its personnal, and im not here for my personnal interest.
In this proposal case you list all thing than we know today than they dont bring any adoption of Dash at the level invest in. printing, free price, artificial use case paid exposure ...
We need adoption proposal, adoption proposal give content to mainstream media to expose Dash freely .
And give a way for all Dash users to use it.(more important than exposure)
An other none efficiante part of you project, you dont use the "free" trust escrow service hown by the DAO, the CORE one. The DAO already payed it and controle it with real profesionnals for manage it.
Do you know why VISA, AMEX, MC, PAYPAL, ... never paid for that kind of project.
Because they are payement tools. As us.
As for the 2 others past proposal who dont pass about drone racing exposure and free price its a no.

Good luck and enjoy the racing anyway.
Regards

tThanks for your notes, JoL, they are greatly appreciated.
There isn't another proposal on DASH Central that is like ours, that immediately makes 480 people that are the demographic target (affluent, engaged in crypto or interested, with disposable/investable income) DASH owners, and through the program in addition to all other initiatives by DASH, make them DASH investors.
We can put the DASH and DASH Wallet in their hands, but there has to be a spark for them to keep it, yes. We are not the marketing department. We are a marketing tool.
Our reach with this program is massive... and cost-per-impression is way below the average of successful DASH Central proposals (we're not the marketing department, but we are marketing professionals).
As for escrow, we just want to play nice in the system.
This is a reach and adoption proposal.
LASTLY,
thanks for bringing up Visa, Amex, MC etc.
Just looking at MC...
they sponsor the
*** (Soccer) Official sponsor of the UEFA Champions League, the Brazilian National Team, Boca Juniors (Argentina), River Plate (Argentina) and NYCFC (NYC Football Club )

*** (Golf) Proud partner of the PGA TOUR, presenting sponsor of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Open Championship, and ambassadors Brandt Snedeker, Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter, Tom Watson, Justin Rose, Brooke Henderson, Annika Sorenstam, Anirban Lahiri, Mark O’Meara and Curtis Strange

*** (Baseball) Major League Baseball (MLB) and MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM), Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees

*** (Tennis) Roland Garros, The Miami Open and The Australian Open

*** (Hockey) The Mastercard Memorial Cup, Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs (Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment)

*** (Rugby) Worldwide partner of Rugby World Cup Japan 2019, ambassadors Dan Carter, Michael Leitch and Akihito Yamada

And... well, they have a marketing department.

Sorry we didn't get your vote, nor the other MNO's that missed what this proposal is... it could have been horses, cars, athletes, or dogs... in this case it was Drones.... but it is a marketing vehicle.

While we addressed all of your detailed points, can we now count on it?

Thanks again for the response.

Jol,
DEMO Incubator is providing escrow services free of any charge for this proposal. Our team believes in the MultiGP proposal. DEMO has traveled to attend and review the MultiGP events. The combination of participants, technology, and demographics of both Dash and MultiGP adopters are aligned better than most. We personally witnessed MultiGP's operation.

Your recommendation or direction for "free" escrow obviously is satisfied with DEMO's free services. Your direction is also counter to most MN's opinion to not centralize the Dash ecosystem.

DEMO has also advised MultiGP to not "give away" Dash. That action, which you suggest is the fastest way to devalue our precious Dash which we should both agree has more value than to simply "give it away". Our team has advised MultiGP to distribute the dash to the contestants through prizing. The drone community would be competing in this scenario to "Win Dash". Dash being the prize of highest "value" to the contestants.

I will also attach this regarding VISA, AMEX, MC, PayPal sponsorships. You'll notice that there is a multitude of various sponsorships regarding these payments systems:
https://usa.visa.com/about-visa/sponsorships-promotions.html

Your comment about Mainstream media, I completely agree with. Our team has watched drone racing and especially MultiGP grow their presence throughout mainstream media and become a focal point of exposure.

Drone racing is growing fast, and MultiGP is a leader in this ecosystem.

MultiGP refined their proposal following their unsuccessful previous proposal. DEMO Incubator Inc. did not want to drag this proposal down with any fees that might impede their success. DEMO elected to zero our fees in an attempt to benefit the Dash network through giving this proposal it's best possible chance of success.

Regards,

Scott @DashRacer

This proposal is simply fantastic!

I would love to see the support of the entire community to achieve Dash in the Drones race!

This sport is really impressive and the community of Drones pilots are economically viable people to adopt Dash!

Together with my team we also continue working to form a team of Dash Race Dash based in Latin America.
