Proposal description

This proposal is a continuation of the Dash Marketing Hub, an official fork of the Dash Incubator, focused on grassroots marketing and promotion of Dash, and on community energizing/engagement.

This cycle we are continuing with the more decentralized leadership which replaced the initial single Proposal Owner role with the Director roles. Hub Directors at this time are myself (TheDesertLynx), Kanuuker, and Pozo, with one (myself) acting as a Treasurer (no change since last cycle). Full details on governance particulars can be found in our Rules document, with no changes since last cycle and changes since the previous cycle remaining highlighted in yellow.

Current Admins (in addition to the Directors who also act as Admins) remain unchanged and are GreekNick, Rion, whysmh4dash, and VVALTER_DASH (renamed as VONCAN).

Below is a breakdown of our spending this past cycle:

We are continuing with our modular approach where our base ask covers basic social media and graphic bounties as well as miscellaneous community tasks, while larger asks are created as part of separate proposals. However, since those separate proposals tend to expire and are not ongoing, we will report on the progress of those proposals under this proposal.

Our initial advertisement campaign with Brave Browser highlighting the all-in-one wallet has concluded. Please find the more detailed report here. We are also in the initial stages of advertising the upcoming Maya Protocol integration.

Our merchant bounty has since been migrated to this proposal’s fund. We have also produced a staking and spending onboarding video, which will be added to the official Dash YouTube channel. Additionally, this onboarding proposal is targeting a small adoption project in Lebanon, where we are looking to create a small hotspot in a university/commercial district in Beirut on a shoestring budget. Beirut is a good target as they have a young, educated population that already possesses USDT or other stable coins, significant inflation, and a government that has shown no interest in regulating cryptocurrency. Unlike the previous Venezuelan efforts, we are going to concentrate on a very small locale with a lot of small, independent retailers. Only if we get a hold there will we look to expand our market.


This quarter the base monthly funding ask remains at 100 DASH. This represents roughly 2% of the total Dash treasury. This amount represents a similar purchasing power amount of last cycle, and as such we have continued to make due with less purchasing power, and save larger asks for larger projects. While we have run out of funds on a consistent basis before the superblock, we’re choosing to cut costs and wait for a potential price growth-induced repricing of tasks rather than expand our base ask.

All operations of the Hub funded by this proposal are subject to the latest Rules published here:

Why the owner of this proposal does not answer to the questions?
I do not like this, at all...

remember they sold this as being "accountable"

Now they call MNOs that want metrics "trolls"

Amazing.

Their snob behavior certainly caused a lot of NO votes.
But I just discovered that they have a Trello board, where all their work is documented.

Maybe there we can find the answers they refuse to provide here.

We aren't answering you because no matter what we say, you will turn it against us. You are looking for blood, nothing more. This will be our one and only response to you. Have a good day.

The dumbest possible response to a simple question! Anyway, is there any place you have answered it before? Care to link?

they did on their first proposal request. Funny how they decided no longer to. Must be my fault.

Social media is the life-blood of crypto, are you present on the socials? Are you talking about Dash and keeping the conversation going? It's very obvious to me that the DHM is having a positive influence in this regard.

"Obvious" should equal observable metrics, correct? Subscriber/follower count, shares/retweets, comments, likes, views.

You are not interested to see how these metrics evolve over time? What rationale could you possibly have for wanting to rely on intuition?

Nonsense, this proposal funds the dash community twitter handle which has been quoted in various places in the past, most recently here: https://coinedition.com/not-a-security-dash-defends-itself-as-a-payment-technology/ What have you done on the socials? Nothing? Just as I thought.

Why are you redirecting to me? Totally illogical. I am not the proposal owner.

What exactly is nonsense?

Why are you acting offended and defensive? Are you a financial beneficiary of this proposal?

People do that when they don't have a logical answer

you'd think that if the social media spending is having a positive influence, it would be relatively easy to demonstrate that. All social media platforms provide metrics. The lack of transparency suggests they are hiding results that don't warrant the amount being spent on it.

At this point I'm pretty sure DMH is just a welfare program.

I guess 88 yes votes, don't even care to see the results for what they are paying for. Isn't that strange?

Probably the reason behind downfall of dash?

The majority of your funds go towards social media accounts. What are the metrics for these accounts?
