INTRODUCTION
Gradually Cryptocurrency adoption in Africa is taking roots at an admirable pace. However, one critical area that needs a big push is Increased Merchants and Users base. DASH adoption in Africa is currently on a steady rise following ongoing projects and execution of the proposals by Ambassadors in Africa funded by  Dash DAO treasury but more yet to be achieving as we in DASH HUB ARE SET TO TRANSFORM AFRICA INTO THE FIRST DASH NATION.The goal of this proposal is to expand usage and make dash the best merchants’ solution alternative for businesses.
Dash aims to satisfy consumers
Dash has been able to consistently provide low transaction fees, fast confirmation times, and security for consumers looking to exchange goods and services online. Dash has been able to scale its network effectively so far and has plans to continue doing so in the future. Dash is providing the attributes that online users have demonstrated a preference towards. Some popular exchange website have chosen not to use Dash, but that has not slowed down the advance of Dash. Dash has launched 23 new partnerships in Q1 of 2018 alone with many of those being exchanges. In addition, more individuals are discovering Dash everyday as more merchants begin accepting Dash all over the world and Dash teams educate individuals about Dash. (DashForceNews.com)

NOTABLE
This project intends to reach about 20,000attendees at the Expofair and Exhibition show, 200+ Exhibitor Stands, Dash
Booth as we join hands to celebrate an Expo-fair and Exhibition show, that would bring Entrepreneur's, Business owner, Restaurants, Companies display their products for shopping and trading.(DASH exclusively as a means of transaction).
Dash is a revolutionary digital money system which serves as a means of payment, for basic utility payments and use for transaction purposes (remittance and donation).
Youth are driving tool for change in an economy, to achieve the first goal of Dash- The youth must have knowledge about the revolution of money, accept it, use it and experience how it works better than Cash in all circumstances. Knowledge impacted in youth are easily shared and experiences can never be forgotten which tends to make them easily convince and inform their parents about Dash Digital Cash.
The problem with cryptocurrencies is the lack of real life use. As participants and newbies of Digital Cash want to feel how to spend Dash like Cash anytime anywhere. To increase awareness and adoption by spending and utilizing DASH in real life scenarios this created this idea (Dash Mini Mall, Funfair and Exhibition for Africa Youth).

What we intend to Achieve:

1. Increase Dash awareness and rampantadoption by businesses.

2. Expand the usage level of Dash in Africa.

3. Mainstream media would help publish and propagate the funfair creating an environment for new wallets creation and newbies acceptance.

4. Impact on the lives of the youth and teaching them about the newest revolution of money (Dash Digital Cash).

5. Dash Booth would help create an enabling ecosystem for newbies and support needed about the Technology.
