Proposal description

Hello everyone,

I decided to wait for the September voting cycle to submit my proposal. You can find the Dash Pre Proposal at https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/make-a-paid-dash-course-a-free-dash-course-for-all-opens-more-doors-for-dash-education.16680/

Periodically throughout this year I have been making a few Dash Videos which I was posting to my Youtube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5K854TDyCKQ73UCGuORVZQ. I have two playlists for Dash: "How to Store Dash" and "How to Get Dash”! These videos led me on a journey to actually create a “Dash for Beginners” course that would help people understand the foundation of Dash. As well as give them a way to use Dash and of course, store dash. The full course can be found at https://www.udemy.com/dash-digital-cash/.

I have taken some time to create this course and upload it to a platform known as https://www.udemy.com/ which is a very popular online learning platform.  As you can see in the image below (screen captured from their website at https://about.udemy.com/press/), there is a huge window of opportunity for people to learn about a vast number of topics including crypotcurrencies! So why not Dash?


[Having difficulties adding the screenshot] The stats are as followed:

  • 17,000,000 Students
  • 45,000 Courses
  • 20,000 Instructors
  • 92,000,000 Course Enrollments
  • 9,000,000 Minutes of video
  • 60+ Languages

I am here to propose that we give the course the opportunity to be free to anyone that wants to learn about Dash as a Digital Currency!

What will this proposal Include?

15 Dash for Course Content Already Created. (40 Lectures about 3 hours)
  • Introduction to Dash.
  • Dash Masternodes.
  • Dash Evolution.
  • Governance.
  • How to store Dash. (Hands-On)
  • How to get Dash. (Hands-On)
  • Where do you Sell Dash. (Hands-On)
  • Instant Send and Private send. (Hands-On)
  • Resources where to spend Dash!
1 Dash for improved equipment (Adobe Creative Cloud & Mic)

4 Dash
  • Add and improve the content over the course of the rest of 2017. 2 to 3 Lectures will be created each month (either Updated or New Content).
  • Suggestions from the community would be greatly appreciated! (Already recommended content to add; basic security practices for wallets).
  • Poll from community to make content 1.5x or 2x faster or leave as is.
  • Add engaging music to all content for the course.
5 Dash for a refund to the proposal.

25 Dash Total


Udemy Policy: With the Course Being Free it will give the opportunity for me to upload the entire course on Youtube (and other video sources) as well and allow anyone if they so choose to embed the content on any platform. The Course would be in its own playlist and the lectures will be uploaded gradually as individual videos.

Current course stats:  See the course at https://www.udemy.com/dash-digital-cash/
  • 530 Students
  • 40 lectures
  • 3 hours of content
What is Currently in the course?
  • Introduction to Dash.
  • Dash Masternodes.
  • Dash Evolution.
  • Governance.
  • How to store Dash. (Hands-On)
  • How to get Dash. (Hands-On)
  • Where do you Sell Dash. (Hands-On)
  • Instant Send and Private send. (Hands-On)
  • Resources where to spend Dash!
What will be improved?
  • More content will be added Such as POS opportunities online.
  • Advancements to the Dash Evolution Lecture.
  • More places to acquire Dash.
  • More places to spend Dash. (Hands-On)
  • Aquire more hardware wallets to do in depth set ups. (Hands-On)(Will use some of the funds in order to get the wallets)
I have uploaded a few hands on tutorial videos to my Youtube Channel so far. Below are just a few samples of the videos that I have made, which I do also have on the Dash Beginners Course.

It's hard to judge a proposal like this since I cannot review your course without paying. Maybe we could offer some constructive feedback if we could actually see it?

You are able to view the outline of the course. Also, some of the videos I submitted are some of the videos that are in the course currently.

@MatteoMN requested a Bittrex video instead of poloniex. I made this video yesterday.

Why pay for all the new videos up front? 25% now 75% later seems more appropriate.
Why not break down the audio/video equipment costs to the dollar? "(Adobe Creative Cloud & Mic)" could easily include links to the amazon/newegg pages, as could the funds for hardware wallets

Are you suggesting a separate proposal for the minority of content that will be delivered later? 20 Dash is a very small amount by proposal standards.

I don't really understand your logic about your first statement. Technically 75%+ of the videos are already created. So isn't your statement backwards?

Could you please elaborate more on your statement?

Change the video about buying on poloniex to buying on bittrex. I dont think poloniex is a healthy reccommendation for our users.

I think there is still need for more introductory stuff for Dash. The proposal gives value for the amount of Dash involved. voting yes.

I have worked with Albert before, both during his time running support for Wall of Coins and his work with Dash Force. He's a thorough and precise worker, and has a firm grasp of getting newbies the help they need. I hope this proposal passes as I personally can make good use of instructional videos walking new users through the daunting process of participation in the cryptocurrency world, and could use it on a site like DiscoverDash.

Wow thank you for the very kind words Joël! I am happy that I have found something that I like doing and care about doing! I am not a programer so I would still like to help Dash out in a way I can!
