Dash Caracas was the first Dash Community in Venezuela, and since its foundation the Dash phenomenon in our country has been huge and without precedents. That is why we founded Dash Venezuela, an organization that works without a rest to make of Venezuela the 1st Dash Nation, helping all of the leaders of Dash Communities and projects in Venezuela to work in a collaborative environment, and making of Dash the most popular cryptocurrency in Venezuela.

Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?

I've asked this before, but I believe it bears repeating: Venezuela has a history of nationalizing foreign investment. How do we know that the The Venezuelan government is not only tolerating us building a community in VZ because of the net inflow of funds? How can we be sure they wont either halt or take over our efforts there the moment the net flow turns outward? And don't waste time saying they made promises. They made promises to oil companies too.

Hello everyone!
I want to thank the community and all of the MNOs who voted for our last proposal entitled:
VENEZUELA: 19 ALLIED COMMUNITIES TO MAKE OF OUR COUNTRY THE 1ST DASH NATION
Countrywide massive adoption strategy
USD 38,350.00
for opening 2,850 new wallets
that is 13.45 USD per person

We got 11% positive votes!!!

Unfortunately, there was no budget left, so we are not going to get funded. A lot of people have shown a lot of support, and ask us to provide an address so they can donate.

We are so grateful to https://dashdonates.org/ who is also supporting the promotion of all the proposals that we did not make in the last cycle.

And here you can find the address for donations:

This is an old 1 month single proposal that passed but did not get funding. There is a bug in the system, this proposal should not be shown here. Wait for the next proposal. This one will expire.

Three things: First, there is an awesome documentary that just came out about what Dash is doing in Venezuela. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PbciVl3nYU&feature=youtu.be

Second, the YES votes demonstrates that the Masternode community really want to pursue action in Venezuela, but the budget is too small at the moment to fund it directly. Once again we need to step up with donations to keep this rolling. Here is their donations address:

Xj6u9bcjegcro6ycFeEn8HTg4sBRCQ6ZpZ

You can confirm that address in this thread:

https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/pre-proposal-dash-conference-venezuela.15285/page-12#post-193703

And third, to "complete the loop" in Venezuela, we need a way for them to earn Dash directly. As awesome as it is to have 100's and 100's of merchants that accept Dash, without substantial ongoing income in Dash, it will never take off to the scale we want and need. One direct way to attack this is with a freelance service. More details to follow.

Carry on, have fun, win!

Many thanks to all those who supported the Proposal of the Allied Communities of Venezuela, We passed but without funds. Regardless of the situation We continue to believe in Venezuela dash nation.

Yes please keep pushing forward. The network pushed you into 50+ voting even though we are over-budget. This is something we have not seen much in the past. Every month it is becoming increasingly obvious where adoption is taking place. News of real adoption is beginning to spread. I believe soon you guys will be a priority for funding. If you have to do another crowdfund I will help support you as much as I can, along with DashHelp.

Hello, I speak to all of Masternodos directly, the 19 liders of the communities of Dash in Venezuela, we decided to put together ideas, contributions and efforts to design a model of divulgation based on knowledge and experience obtained through Dash Caracas' conferences, model which we assure will give place to the birth of real Dash Nation, we know that there's a lot of interesting proposals but we believe that what has been planted in Venezuela cannot be left to die, with all the work done in 2018, don't let this opportunity go and vote for the proposals best designed to add more to your inversions.
Sincerely, Richard Jerez, lider of the community of Dash in Los Teques, capital of state Miranda, Venezuela.
I also have this proposal in dashboost https://www.dashboost.org/proposals/view/128/Dash%20supports%20education%20in%20Venezuela%20while%20creating%203000%20new%20Dash%20transactions

I have difficulty keeping track how what happening in Venezuela, previously you called it "Dash conference - Venezuela nr**"
It now reads like this is something completely new. Also the reports on Reddit are not easily readable. It seems like you're very hard at work, but a failure to properly report on it makes it difficult for value you're projects, which in turn makes they highly undervalued.

Don't get me wrong I voted yes.

Hi Thanks for your vote, this proposal is focused on holding several small conferences around Venezuela, for the 19 Dash communities
Reply

Yes I figured that much, but the way you report on it not just here, I read up on Reddit, discord and twitter as well, is sub par. I think there is lots of improvement possible. Communication is not my area of expertise but I can clearly see their is much to be gained. You'd probably could find some people in the Dash discord to help along the way.

Personally I would start with gathering everything you do and than contact some on how has experience in communication/PR. I quit certain it will give a pretty chunky increase, various area's.

*Please not I previously voted no, on previous posts, only to change them to yes because I found some more info on you're activity's, and that only because I am actively spending time on crypto and Dash in particular at least 3 hours each day.

Given the choose I will always vote for the proposals that have the best and most clear communication when it comes to PR, marketing or education. Right now you don't have competition in this area, but if you do, I am sorry to say you'll lose out.

Take from this what you will, but I sincerely hope you take my professional opinion to heart.

This project is so important that I have difficulty understanding all the no votes. I guess that is the wisdom of the group in action. A country running on dash has got to be huge pathway to global adoption.

It's unclear what the proposal is about. Sure Venezuela is important, but do you expect MNOs to vote yes on any proposal just because it contains the word Venezuela?

Including Dash Caracas, we are 19 active communities in Venezuela, and we are going to open 2850 new wallets in activities such as meetups and workshops, where we are also going to detect new entrepreneurs and merchants to teach them how to accept Dash as payment or donation.

Sorry to see that you won’t fit in for funding this month, with core absorbing all the remaining budget.

Im sure you will pass next month.

Is there an address for donations?

I support the idea of making Venezuela a dash nation, but from the proposal it is not clear to me why exactly the money is needed. The table "Number of active communities" does not add up with the total USD price. I am voting NO for now and will change to YES as soon as the above question is answered.

Hello, and thank you for reading our proposal.

Hi. My name is Jahlexis and I am the Coordinator of the National Program of Communities of Dash Venezuela.

In Venezuela at this moment there are 19 active communities allied to Dash Venezuela, who are working to build this Nation Dash. Each Community will hold 2 meetups and 2 workshops, which gives for 19 communities 38 meetups and 38 workshops for a total of 76 events to attend an estimated minimum of 900 people.

We already had a previous experience with a pilot plan which we carried out between May and June and you can see the results in this thread of the forum:

40,000 USD for 900 people. That's $44 per person. What do we get for spending $44 per person?

We are determined to get this proposal far far into the green territory this budget cycle. Bring the yes votes people. This is important.

The United States can't do it.

The United Nations can't do it.

The World Bank can't do it.

The European Union certainly can't do it.

The Venezuelan government can't do it.

But DashNation is right now, this very minute, giving it a heroic try. Merchant adoption is zooming up. We have a scaling plan that could support the economy of a whole country. We have a meaningful chance at actually making the entire economy of Venezuela run better. Let that sink in for a minute. Less talking, more doing, DashNation.

Hi everybody... I am Jahlexis Lugo, Coordinator of this great program from Dash Venezuela. It is really important that we can see the full picture here, because we work very hard for results like this:

-Active Communities in Venezuela: 18
-New Communities in Venezuela (This month): 4
-We attended +800 people in several meetups and talks about Dash with different themes.
-Install +700 New wallets
-More than 1400 transactions
-We attended +100 new entrepeneurs.

Venezuela has a huge potential and this is a little example of what we can do.
With the support of Dash Venezuela and the MNOs. We want to keep working and make Venezuela the First Dash Nation.

This is where we draw the line. Venezuela MUST go forward with a viable Dash economy. Merchant adoption is zooming up (over 400). The seminars Eugenia puts on are well attended. Let's get on with fixing Venezuela.

This is what it looks like when the people unite with a common goal and vision to solve a problem. If the budget is used up this month we need to continue to support these teams with our donations.

I hope the Venezuela teams and the conference attendees realizes that behind DASH are caring human beings. That is one quality that stands us apart from other digital currencies. DASH is not just a faceless digital asset like other coins. DASH has caring heart, and that heart is our community.

We are the only Cryptocurrency in the World to have a free technical support centre because we care about our users experience. We know people need support from others when they are starting. This is why we support community projects like the Venezuela conferences and other projects that are working to a solution to the currency crisis in Venezuela. DASH community cares.

I wonder how many other crypto currencies care about community projects like we do? And if they do where is the evidence?

DASH is a technology backed by caring human beings. I have come to realise this is one of DASH's greatest qualities.

We will continue to support you until there is a stable currency in Venezuela I can say this because I know the people behind DASH care.

We support you. Yes!
