Proposal description

 This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum 

INTRODUCTION


We reach out from an international YouTube awarding ceremony organization, taking place in Spain yearly. 
The name of the event is "Play Awards"
Last year´s event went trending topic on twitter with more than 73 MILLION impressions.

We are preparing this year's ceremony, which will take place in May, and we think it's a great opportunity to introduce Dash to a wider audience that is already familiar to a digital world.

Proposal detailed
We would like to set up an international contest to our audience on our social networks.
We could easily reach many participants, in other words, new users.
the approach we have come up with is as follows.

In order to be eligible to participate in the contest, candidates would need to:

1 - Create a Dash Wallet
2 - Know what Dash is (they have to be able to respond quickly) 
3 - Post on their social network "La criptomoneda Dash me invita a los Play Awards" (which stands for "the cryptocurrency Dash invites me to the Play Awards"). In addition, we would set up an official #hashtag (i.e. DashxPlayAwards) augmenting exponentially the reach of the action by having them spread the word, do the math.

The winner of the contest would win a ticket to attend the event and meet their favorite YouTube stars in real life, as well as 2,5 Dashes each to spend in their adventure.

In order to make sure participants follow the rules, we would request the following procedure:

1. Participants would have to send us an email ( dashplayawards2017@gmail.com) with their Dash wallet address in the subject and their phone number and social networks links in the email body.

2. We will check that they have shared it on their social network. They must have done that in order to win.

3. The winner would get a call from the organization and will be asked to explain the basics of Dash to see if he/she knows what Dash really.
Is very common to see lotteries and contest in the "YouTubeSphere", and participants show super engagement with this kind of things fortunately.

Budget for the project
175 Dashes 

The budget would be distributed to:

1 - Fund the winners attendance to the event (flights, hotels, etc)
2 - The stuff that will be in charge of the contest, organizing the trips, logistics, etc.
3 -  Proposal reimbursement.


Best regards
Play Awards team

IMPORTANT: I have just personally verified beyond any reasonable doubt that this is an authentic representative of the Play Awards. I emailed their official website email theplayawards@gmail.com and asked them to contact me via Skype which they did (there was no other way for them to know my Skype). I had a video call with Max Olivier the founder of the Play Awards. He not only verified his identity with his license and showed me one of the upcoming gold trophies but most importantly for you to see he also has posted a Dash logo on the top right corner of The Play Awards' official YouTube channel here as a way to verify it's them behind the proposal https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClIGGpV0r4YP8DLstALeSSQ

Max told me he has a significant amount of his savings in Dash and is doing this much more to help Dash than he is for the benefit to his show. He said he would be charging double or triple to any other advertiser. I personally feel confident he is genuine in his desire to help Dash and that this is a good use of our funds given that we will have the potential to reach all over Spain and Latin America, and this is basically the Oscars for Spanish YouTube content creators. Even though this will only be the second year of their show, in their first year they have had almost 2 million views on their YouTube Channel since the show (proof seen here from their account at the top left https://gyazo.com/75567f8b0ba987a052d4ecd862c353cf 1,778,121 views) and if you include people who pirated clips of their show on YouTube around 10 million views. So it's pretty safe to say there will be at least 1-10 million+ views of the show if nothing goes wrong. They will be broadcasted nationally on the Antena 3 Digital Platform and throughout Latin America through YouTube rebroadcasters live. Max has promised to put clips of the Dash Contest winners on their official YouTube channel and to mention and or display a Dash banner at least once during the actual show.

Given that we only have 24 hours to garner enough votes, Max has told me since the event is in May he can still make the proposal next month but that he would like to at least gauge the support beforehand so please do vote yes even if it is unlikely to pass so that Max feels confident it will pass next month.

It's also important to note, In order for people to enroll in this Dash contest to attend the Play Awards for free which will be a red-carpet event with celebrities in the center of Madrid, contestants need to create a Dash Wallet, know what Dash is, and share on their social media that the cryptocurrency Dash is inviting them to attend the Play Awards. I think this expense is much more valuable than typical advertising because the contestants actually need to actively learn about and be ready to use Dash in order to enroll rather than just see our logo or hear about us.

Thank you for the investigation. I think the problem with this specific budget proposal is that they created their budget proposal rather late, cutting the discussion time short. It would have been better for them to have started their budget proposal earlier or have it started at a later superblock.

Thank you for validating your identity :)
Although I think this proposal is not exactly perfect, I will lend support because with all things considered, I think the network is more likely to benefit from this than not. Thanks for your proposal & good luck

Play_Awards,

I think your proposal could bring Dash a lot of new Dash-educated users and attention in Europe for a reasonable price. Now that BitPanda.com accepts European deposits via credit card as of this week, I think the timing is very good.

However, first I personally would need to see verifiable proof that you are indeed an authentic representative of the Play Awards to know that we aren't being conned. I'd also like to know your off exact position, what company you officially work for, your business's contact phone number etc. You could private message me this over the forum if you'd rather some of it not be public.

I would also like to know how many viewers your awards have gotten in each of the past years both live and on YouTube over time. Also, in your estimation, how many people will watch this year live and how many over time? How many will hear about this Dash-sponsored competition beforehand and want to participate? How many users do you think will actually get through creating a Dash wallet, learning about Dash, posting about Dash on social media (which is a requirement of your competition I particularly like and I'm sure other MN's do) and signing up for your competition? Will you mention the Dash sponsorship or display a Dash logo more than once during the actual awards show so that Dash's affiliation will be noted even in the post-show viewings?

Finally I'd like you to be strict about enforcing the rules of the competition. If they don't actually do what the requirements are, you must let them know beforehand that you won't be giving them any breaks if they don't fulfill the requirements.

Thanks

Hi Paragon,

Thank you very much for your elaborated feedback and your reasonable concerns. I will be glad to go through them chronologically.


IDENTITY

My name is Alberto Lopez, I am the head manager of the Play Awards marketing department. Here are all diverse ways I can think off to proof that this is in fact a Play Awards proposal, and my exact position.

1. YOUTUBE. We have linked the Dash website in YouTube channel at the banner right side, for the period of this proposal, as a proof of channel ownership. Here is the link:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClIGGpV0r4YP8DLstALeSSQ

2. SOCIAL NETWORK. All Play Awards official networks are active, and we are directly reachable (even thought we follow a strict rule of stoping posting things when the event ends). Any one is most well come to drop us a line, we answer every message.
A) Twitter. https://twitter.com/theplayawards
B) Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/theplayawards/
C) INSTAGRAM. https://www.instagram.com/playawards/

3. WEBSITE. The Play Awards official website, has contact information in the “contact” page. You will find my name and email under marketing. Emailing directly the organization from the contact form is a viable option too.
http://www.playawards.es/contacto

4. DIRECT CONTACT. I will be pleased to have Skype, phone call, of any other preffered method, with anyone who want to know us personally. (@paragon I´m sending you a PM in a few minutes ;)



DATA & ESTIMATIONS

YouTube viewers.

We got approximately 10 million views distributed in the different YouTube stars channels, and 500K in our own channel (even thought many other channels copy our signal and re-publish in live time) This year we have partnered with Spanish biggest TV broadcaster, and they will get the signal aswell in their digital platform called Flooxer.

We expect to double our last year results.

We estimate to reach 18 Millions views in total on YouTube
I attach a document that has some more details regarding our other social media platforms:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1NdKtXh5xmBamowLWFSNHh0cE0



THE DASH CONTEST

We want to rich directly from our network, and with the help of the YouTubers we collaborate at least 1 Million participants.
We are confident it can get up to 3 or 5 Millions, if not more.

Each participant will need to share the Dash frase: “The cryptocurrency Dash invites me to the Play Awards”. If on average every participant has 50 people reached within their circle (which will be surely more) we are reaching at least 50 Million people.

In order to participate they will have to do the 3 key actions:

1 - Create a Dash wallet
2 - Post the frase about Dash on their social network
3 - Learn the basics of what Dash is.

Assuming that participants are willing to win the Play Awards contest prize, we are convinced that they will follow the three rules carefully.
The three rules we have defined, are the only way we can reach such a wide audience, therefore, we completely agree with you that is vital for the success of this contest to be explicitly shown in upfront.

Yes @paragon, our cameras will record the winners highlights and will be uploaded to the Play Awards official YouTube channel and will remain there after the event.

Please keep letting us know any other suggestions/ concerns you may have!

Thank you all.

Best

I checked the Youtube channel. The link, for those of you who would like to see it, is in the Top Banner Area on the right side. I am very supportive of building community in any Spanish speaking country. You have gained my yes vote.

Thank you very much @ec1warc1.

We strongly believe the Spanish community needs more info on the net about Dash.

Wish Amanda spoke Spanish! ;)

+1 to paragon's post and please see what I posted on the forums thread for this proposal.

"
Have you corresponded with @babygiraffe or anyone else from the Dash core team?

I don't think I will be able to vote on a proposal of this scale with out at least an endorsement from the core team and verification that Dash will be presented the right way. I would prefer that you use use Dash media/info that has already been created by knowledgeable community members.

EDIT: Please join us in the #proposals channel in slack https://dash-nation-invite.herokuapp.com/ as there is much to be discussed and not much time before this voting round is over.

Agree with paragon -- please provide verifiable proof that you are an authentic representative of the Play Awards. (This is your job to provide us with this, not the masternode operators job to each try and verify you on their own)

My advice would be to try to book a interview with Amanda or Tao to build a foundation of trust. There are some snake oil salesmen posting proposal so naturally some of the Mns are suspicious about every proposal. For all they know you could be a temp that is overseeing Play Awards social accounts.
