Proposal description

Background

My name is Afrikanus Kofi Akosah Adusei, Founding President of Africa Youth Peace Call (www.aypcghana.org ), an independent, non-profit, research and educational organisation devoted to the principles of individual liberty, secure private property rights, free markets, the rule of law, limited government, and government non-interference in the economy. I am also a journalist by profession and currently I write for the Coin Telegraph,The Dash  Times and have been given the nod to write for Bitcoin.com as well with the pseudonym Frisco d’Anconia. Africa’s adoption of Cryptocurrency is very slow even though the digital currency has an enormous power to liberate the continent economically and politically.  


Tour


From the 1st week of November, 2016 to February, 2017, I will be traveling through six Southern African countries to interact with the Blockhain/Bitcoin Communities, promote and write about Bitcoin programs and projects for the Coin Telegraph. These are the countries I will be visiting: Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe & South Africa. I will hold meet-ups, interact & interview industry players, activists and ordinary people on the streets. Also, I will do podcasts for the Coin Telegraph and other news outlets. Botswana will be my base as I travel to all the other countries overland. In each country I will spend at most two weeks.



Sponsors


I am so excited about Dash from the moment I got introduced to it by my colleague and mentor Joel Valenzuela not long ago. It is important Africa gets to know of this unique cryptocurrency.I intend to make it one of my agendas on this tour by promoting it through the various Meet-Ups I will organize. In fact I intend to organize two Dash Meet-Ups in every country of the six I am traveling to. The only cost involved in this tour that is not yet covered is air ticket from Ghana-Botswana-Ghana. In exchange for promoting Dash I should be very grateful if Dash could cover my air ticket which costs $1000. Aside the Dash Meet-Ups in the six countries I will have your logo on my Blog, Social Media Pages and mentions in all my media appearances and releases. Photos and videos taken during the events will be put together to promote Dash online. Getting people on the ground to continue promoting Dash is crucial, therefore I will recruit Crypto enthusiasts who will form Dash Fan Clubs to sustain promotion.

It would have been relevant to have included some clear deliverables in your proposal. For example, video documentation of each meetup. Or pictures with people whom you help to start Dash wallets, etc.

Sorry, to be more clear myself -- I know that you've noted in your final paragraph, "Photos and videos taken during the events will be put together to promote Dash online." But exactly how many? A video from each meetup? From each country? On which website(s)? Thanks.

In the future it would just be nice to see clear, easy-to-understand lists.

Thanks for your concerns. In fact I'll put together videos & photos from each Meet-Up in every country of the six I'm visiting. Actually I'm setting up a blog for this journey and the final video will be on it. It'll also be spread on the Dash Africa & the main Dash pages on Facebook as well as youtube. I know with the support of the community It'll be spread wide. Thank you once again.

Happy you are getting the early nod here. The benefit to Dash from exposure at 12 different meet ups far outweighs the meagre amount of Dash requested. I believe you can be a great asset to Dash in Africa, and a great representative for Dash. Dash Nation needs an African front... ;-)

Voting yes.

This is one of those budget proposals that in a way touches the core of our decentralized budget system ; enabling community members to educate and spread the word of Dash towards those countries that are relatively unfamiliar with cryptocurrencies.

Ugh, I'm reading, quickly as I don't have much time, about who you are, and wow, you're quite brave! Taking on the establishment open with no mask. Our great Founding Fathers in the USA gave us our liberty 240 years ago, and slowly we allow the government eat away at it, until there is no truth and no freedom left again. I'm sure your fight will eventually be victorious, I just hope it comes more through peace (ie: great chess moves) and not war like it was for us. I also ask that you stay safe. And you have my vote, because this is what I wish for the world; Minimal Government, maximum freedom while respecting those around you. Good luck!!!

If this proposal passes, it would be great if we could supply promotional material for him to distribute as well. Let's hook this guy up! Africa is a huge market that is begging for Dash!
