NOTABLE
This proposal is been escrowed by Green Candle, one time estimated proposal cost requested for Monthly payout to Dash-hub Africa based on the milestones outlined in this proposal for proper coordination, value for money and as a first time proposal Owner.
The proposal lays the foundation for Pan Africa Integration into East Africa,Central Africa and South Africa nations to make DASH Digital Cash go mainstream, increased adoption and everyday usage as the future of money.
It is applauding to see more outreach programs and projects in Ghana, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and other part of Africa from DASH Ambassadors and members but more is needed to be done to close the gap as the increasing acceptance, demand and  usage of DASH and Cryptocurrency by people, businesses and government in Africa is incredible and impressive.

SUMMARY
 
Dash-hub Africa team project aims to increase awareness and adoption of DASH Cryptocurrency and make DASH go mainstream in Africa more especially among the Youth, Entrepreneurs, Business class, people trained in IT, High School and College Students, professionals and working class as the future of money.

Our major developments and strategies are to increase Adoption and everyday Usage of DASH for payment of goods and services (Business and Merchants Adoption) in the country after which foster minds on the development of Pan Africa integration (East Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa Projects).

Our target is to organize classic outreach through handled by Our Ambassadors Monthly workshops/conferences in 4 selected Regions based on needs and demand, Radio and Media Discussion/talk, Bi Monthly training and orientation for New Ambassadors/Merchants, 2days Local Cryptocurrency Exchanges Interactive Session, Business Adoption Crusade, Street talk and walk to discuss Blockchain technology and DASH. Digital Signage displaying Dash Digital Cash features for public visibility.
 
The project will educate and practically train Youth,Entrepreneurs, Business class, IT Specialist, High School and College Students, Professionals and Working class for massive adoption and increased usage of DASH as a medium of exchange and all the benefits and advantages of using DASH against any other cryptocurrency or digital money (Mobile money). The workshops/conferences shall be open to all interested persons including CEOs of businesses, Investors, the media (TV, Radio, online & print) and the general public at large. 

Each of this monthly conference/workshop is expected to record at least 300 participants whereas the radio discussions will be heard by about 45,000 people with phone in sessions for questions and answers. DASH tokens will be given to participants at each event and listeners who phone in and answer questions during the radio programs.

The motivation behind this project is to promote DASH through education and marketing for massive adoption and everyday usage as means of payment in Ghana and Africa at large.

ACTION PLANS: All participants would be trained on howto set up DASH wallets Android, IOS, Core and paper wallet and how they can also promote it through their social media accounts and also bringing more ideas to promoting DASH to increase adoption and frequent use as means of payment. In addition, Ten (10) Participants from each Monthly Regional Conferences and Workshop who seems active and demonstrate excellent understanding of the Blockchain technology and DASH technology would be selected and trained as Ambassadors for DASH towards our Pan Africa project into Kenya, Ethiopia, and Botswana. (East Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa Projects)

WHAT WE WANT TO DO

So therefore, we intend to embark on this maiden project in the form of a tour and media integration to educate the general public including Business people, Entrepreneurs, Youth, people trained in IT, Tertiary level students and public

Polytechnics and Training School) and Businesses (Local and Foreign enterprises) are majorly situated.

Also, we intend to put DASH into the public media through Outdoor Digital Display. This is a modern Advertising system that uses Giant screen to display products, services and how it is always seen at strategic point for public views. We intend positioning DASH on this screen in Cities and towns in Ghana for 4 Months.

WHAT WE HAVE DONE SO FAR
We have been able to organize several Meetups and Outreach for DASH network in the past, represented DASH at Conferences and trained new Ambassadors/Merchants to take up DASH evangelism and campaign.

Note:The Dash rate used is $601.93 as at 03-March-2018 (Amount reduced by 5dash as posted on the pre-proposal using current Dash Value). In case the price increases within the project period, We will apply it towards additional highly targeted Publicity and Outreach for DASH in following Month.

Finally,this project brings tangible benefits by taking DASH directly to the streets and people of Ghana by getting them involved in everyday use of the currency for daily transaction and usage. My specific aim is to increase market capitalization by focusing efforts on under-served and niche markets more especially weak economy system where Cryptocurrency could serve greater purposes.

If we talking of Dash expansion, Africa shouldn't be overlooked. The adoption of Dash by the youths, entrepreneurs, business class,high school students,professionals and working class in Ghana will increase the usage of Dash as a medium of exchange. dash-hub-africa headed by Ultimatecrypto are doing very wonderful work in Ghana and we support the team to spread their wings to other Africa countries.
Cheers! @Ultimatecrypto

An open letter to Masternode Owners

I’m writing to you and the community as a whole. I understand that many of you bought into Dash because you see it as a potential winner in the crypto space and that you can earn a steady income from running a node. The budget system is great, only as a business person, you don’t see the value of some of the apparently wasteful things that have been supported in the past, and you are going to do your darndest to put a stop to it! I appreciate that. Many of the things Dash has done don’t make economic sense. I keep hearing about the Rate of Income, and that we’re not seeing sufficient returns on some of the proposals. Unfortunately, I don’t think you understand what you signed on for. Please let me explain.

The cryptocurrency movement started by the unknown Satoshi Nakamoto, is a declaration of war against the incumbent banking system. There is no sweeter way of saying it. Of course nobody wants actual war, or any type of violence, however the incumbent system has utterly failed the people of the world in so many ways, and are undoubtedly the cause and source of all the wars around the world; the proof of which would be far too long a book to write here. This war can only be won Gandhi style, Martin Luther King Jr. style. We must win the hearts and minds of the world. We must grab as big a foothold in countries who have been decimated by bad governments and bankers. What you signed on for here is not a “business” that runs a balance sheet and must show profit. You signed on to a war.

If you have not noticed yet, The IMF’s Christine Lagarde had declared the need to “control cryptocurrencies”. The good news is that they can not, ultimately, control them. They can however block fiat access which would be a huge slowdown in adoption. You see, when Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin, he knew he already won the war. However, there are still battles to go through. They will not change the ultimate outcome, but they can cause a LOT of misery; probably even death, as it’s obvious that those in power will do anything to keep it. It does NOT have to go this way if we play the game of Chess well. They’re on the defense. Lets keep them there!

So what do we need to get us through these battles as unscathed and solid as possible? We need two things. We need to win hearts and minds of the people of the world and we need to get footholds in large areas where people use cryptos in daily life, not fiat. For this, Dash is the best tool, but the crypto community as a whole needs to band together to make this work! And because of our budget, Dash is in the best position to lead this charge.

If you have not noticed, the media is fully controlled by the governments today. There is no more freedom of the press anymore, except for small independent groups and individuals. Today’s mainstream media is pulled by the very same strings; not left, not right, none of that is even real. Who in America that isn’t brainwashed or mentally ill, really hates blacks, whites, browns yellows and purples? You really think “white” people care what color skin another person has? I’ll tell you, not any more than a black or brown or purple person is likely to hate a white or other color person. No, it’s a tool to divide and conquer. Birth control, abortion, wages, race; it’s all fodder to keep the people incensed and impudent. Nothing changes no matter who is in charge.

By supporting projects like The Free Thought Project, Ben Swann, and the crypto show (and their humanitarian aid arm) and more, we develop a relationship and allies. Our funding can empower free media, and in return we can expect that they will tell the truth about crypto. This is the absolutely best way to win hearts and minds in my opinion because even the most average of humans in the United States feels manipulated and that something isn’t right in the media, even if they can’t put their finger on it. If we can increase the reach of Truth in Media or any other such project, it will be the best tool we can hope for in this war.

Also, the importance of what we do in Venezuela and other South American countries, plus what we do for many countries in Africa cannot be under estimated. These are Dash’s and crypto’s foot holds. There is so much potential in Africa and South America, and digital currencies will free that potential. If you don’t know by now, you should know that it is corrupt banking or lack thereof that keeps the people in these parts of the world from participating economically in the world. If we get a real economy working in these parts of the world, these countries or areas have no debt, no love of western banking. They will be whole heartedly crypto. And nobody will be able to change that.

Either we win, or we drag this out forever, until the corrupt institutions of the world find a way to co-opt everything the crypto community have been trying to build. We look at the bottom line for what Ben Swann’s rate of return cost per click was, or we back media because it represents freedom as does cryptocurrency. We build a trust relationship with hard working young people in Africa, who are grass rooting their country and soon catapulting it to the top of the food chain, or we leave them and their potential high and dry because pictures aren’t enough proof, there “could” be waste in how they are functioning, or god forbit they “take us” for a dash or two. I don’t even think they’d ever even do that, they’re full of so much zest for building an economy in their homeland, but the narrow-minded fear we seem to have is starting to become irrational.

If you haven’t guessed by now, this letter to you, the Dash community is a request to support and vote for all the African, Venezuelan, Benn Swann, Truth in Media proposals because we NEED these people to win! Thank you so much for reading this and I apologize for posting this everywhere, but that is my intention.

I see alot of fortune for DASH in this proposal and @Ultimatecrypto have shown some level of competence and delivery in the past has I can recall both on discord and forum.
I believe he would deliver well and get Dash to more people in Africa, this time DASH need this proposal for more adoption and usage from Africa.

I can think of nothing more important than getting our foot hold in any area of the world; any country even any city. The fact that Africa is burning Dash Blue is a testament to Dash's usefulness, but it's no slam dunk. We need a bunch of slam dunks! We need to keep the support going and give these awesome guys the support they need.

When people start to use dash, instead of speculating on it's price, Dash will start to shine. No other coin can do what we can do. We need to prove it with high transaction counts!!!! So lets get people to start trading/buying, etc... I don't know how we are going to do it, but Dash has to be easy to buy, so that people are willing to spend it and trade for it, and aren't afraid of running out of it (if they can buy more, they shouldn't feel that way). Anyway, we have got to get the infrastructure built in all areas of Africa and these efforts are only the start of that!

From the looks of your previous work , It is crystal clear that you have so much burning desire towards expanding the frontiers of Dash Digital Cash and am very optimistic that when given the chance , you will perform beyond measure. Use this project to get Dash to every corner of Africa for these are the kind of proposals that are needed most in Africa.
Cheers !

Thank you for helping us Transform Africa into Dash-hub.

Listening to the video, I realize the importance of this proposal. For example, we get proposals from Ghana, Nigeria and SA. None from the mentioned countries, if this proposal is executed as stated, we will have Dash going on in other African countries and that creates a platform for continental integration. Not sure how he is doing it but I see some of the countries as visa free countries for Ghana and so if he have the links in these countries, then he can do it. Let’s give it a try. Cheers

Yes from me.
I like that you have had your pre-proposal up for a month before submitting your proposal, allowing plenty of time for feedback and discussion, rather than rushing it through.
I like that you have set up escrow.
This proposal is well written, detailed.
Your past work with meetups shows you are effective and that your heart is in it.
This is also a reasonable amount of money, and Africa is as important to Dash as Latin America. I trust you will do your best and that you will be effective. I hope this passes.

Appreciative of the effort and persistence but I must vote no.

Africa is important but the methodologies in this proposal are costly, inefficient, and they don't properly scale.

For an Africa campaign where impressions and users can be obtained extremely cheaply, we should mimic dashmaximalist's viral approach (Getfreedash) that has worked successfully in Venezuela. We can't afford to pay this much per user when we now have a proven strategy that can get new downloads/users for $1 a pop.
Reply

I, for one, disagree with this assessment. While dashmaximalist's efforts are hugely important, they would not be nearly as successful without the ground teams in Venezuela or feedbands' ad-targeting wizardry, for example. It's not just about putting Dash in people's hands, but also having a network of users and enthusiasts who can field and educate and spark interest in the platform as a whole. If we want mass-adoption in a region, we need to hit it from every angle we can and see what works best in each region.

The world is not a uniform place where you can copy-paste and expect the same results. Each region, each culture, each language, each market will have its own unique features, and who better to test those waters and lay those foundations than people native to them with enthusiasm toward that goal? When in Rome...(or in this case Africa)...

I agree with you, Arthyron.

This particular proposal may not see ROI but does place a growing team and contacts throughout Africa that will be leveraged in the future to help with even more projects. We aren't aiming for adoption with this. What we want to see is people from African countries joining Dash forums and asking how they can help.
Reply

I think you are oversimplifying things. If we only had getfreedash for venezuela I don't think that would work out. But we don't we have conferences a dash help centre and soon business adoption programmes. All of this is required.

Most of those things are provided by this proposal. This is the groundwork to make getfreedash succeed in Africa when it expands to there.

@stustats. Making a comparison with an approach for massive Adoption in South America (Venezuela) cannot be justified to Africa economy.

The methodologies in this proposal for massive Adoption are justifiable, set milestone achievements in details and cost are scalable and present Value for Money.

We are on the ground, I have several times make enquiry from newbies, crypto users and Businesses on the best strategy to make Dash go viral in Africa and this strategy seems best and I will appreciate that you support this Initiative as Africa offers great opportunities to make DASH the future of money.

Thanks for the consideration.

I agree with this argument, unfortunately. Voting no.

I'd prefer that UltimateCrypto were hired 'a la carte' through a different Africa proposal or someone like DF who has a budget for international meetups.

@GreatScot seems you're only looking at the Outreach accept of this proposal.
In gist, this proposal have Conferences,Workshops, Local Cryptocurrency exchange adoption, training of Ambassador for pan Africa project, recruiting new merchants for online and offline p2p exchange for Dash to Fiat and above all lay the foundation for pan Africa project.

Yes.

This is where cryptocurrency has the advantage over banks. Dash can go into areas that banks refuse to reach.

When a laborer asks for payment in Dash and refuses fiat, that is when we win.

You really work hard and I now understand why you want dash to shine in africa.there are a lot of good ideas in there which is going to ginger the people of Africa Ghana to be precise to patronize and choose dash to be their number one digital curency in terms of crypto. It will be of great opportunity to start some of what you said in your proposal to make Ghanaians take advantage of dash and crypto in terms of digital curency as a whole and let them gain their financial freedom. Thanks.
