I want to vote for this but we can't fund projects that have an unresponsive proposal owner. This needs to be voted down if the proposal owner is still unresponsive by the budget deadline.

Looks like Dash Watch has run away with the Treasury Money. A replacement needs to be found ASAP.

Looks like Dashwatch team has disappeared without doing the work they are getting paid for. December reports are still incomplete and funding decisions had to be made without them.

This should be voted down unless there is an explanation forthcoming from paragon.

DashWatch: a) rambrissi has claimed that: <Also we are focus on selling MN as investment, not door to door business accepting Dash .> (https://www.dashcentral.org/p/DashBrazil2020),

b) <in 2 years of our proposal we sold 24 MN to investors> (same link), (comment date: comment left 25 days ago)

c) are you able to verify factuality of this proposal performance metric?

d) also rambrissi indicated on his 2nd recent proposal: <So Far we are focus on MN as investments, we "sold 19" MN to passive investors and also gateway integration for e-commerce and bill payment. > (https://www.dashcentral.org/p/DashBrazilBizDev), (comment date: comment left 2 months ago)

e) DashWatch: are you able to clear up if rambrissi is going for the same proposal performance metric (ie. selling MN's) on both of these 2 separate proposals?

Dash Watch didnt even publish basic reports on time so you can forget about answering queries. They are getting free money for doing nothing and are firmly on the gravy train.

This allows people like RAmbrissi to make grossly exaggerated claims and get away with it.

Dec report is 19 Nov- 20 Dec. They just collect information and post it next day without any investigation. This month they failed to even do that.

Dashwatch is a group of slackers who are getting paid for doing zero work. Disgusting work ethic.

Where are the reports for this month with 12 hours to go?

As it is you are getting paid for working 2 days in a month and even then you are unable to provide reports in time?

Hardly a day to go and no reports? What is the point of funding this when you can't even publish simple reports in time.

Dash Parking Mall is claiming $800 a month for "banners". Unbelievable. Can you verify whether this expense has been made or if treasury money is getting embezzled?

MNOs just ignore ValenciaDash (George Donnelly's) comments. He's just trying to cause damage to projects as we all know he lost his own project i.e. a project loser with a grudge.

Deepblue - You have similarly backed scammers before and they were later found to be stealing(Lorenzo) from the treasury. $800 every month is a lot of money for banners in a starving country and I am only asking dash watch to verify.

Considering they are doing doing less than a few dash in volume 800 a month is a mindboggling number.

Are you against verification ?

@ValenciaDash just move on. Spend your energy on doing something good. Why can't you learn from your past mistakes? You're simply damaging you're reputation more with every post.

Let me address your issue for the last time regarding DMV salaries and your claim to fraud.

In the investigation that DashWatch made with DMV project it was confirmed by DW that the *total* amount allocated and spent on salaries was correctly reported i.e. the combined salaries amount for all people on the DMV project was accurately reported. MNOs had already agreed to pay that total salary amount for the DMV team. What was not correctly reported was only the distribution of those salaries.

There were trolls spamming the DMV project with over 100 messages repeatedly saying that the monthly average salary in Venezuela was $10 and that we should not be paying that amount of money for salaries in Venezuela. There was an unprecedented amount of negativity in their final DMV proposal that I thought was nothing short of disgraceful.

Both Lorenzo and Alejandro are entrepreneurs and qualified business people that have been offered more money working for other companies some of these outside of Venezuela. The amount of money they took for their personal salary in the DMV proposal which I believe was around $1500 per month (DW please correct me if I am wrong) was a reasonable amount for their ability contribution, experience and skill set - even in Venezuela. But due to the huge negative troll attack they had in their proposal they feared MNOs would not understand or accept that so they made a bad decision and reported incorrect *distribution* of the salaries only. However I have to repeat again the total salary amount reported was correctly reported (DW please confirm).

MNOs knew the total salary amount and voted in that project. Therefore MNOs had already accepted the total salary ask on the DMV proposal and that total was accurately submitted by the DMV team.

In no other DASH project to date, and that includes the DashCore group, are the salaries broken down to the individual level - Nowhere. However this is what happened in the investigation in the DW report in the DMV investigation.

If I could have I would have advised the DMV team to give their correct distribution of salaries to DW and clearly state upfront how much they were paying themselves and then simply argue the reasons why they were worth that amount of Salary. But unfortunately they did not consult with me for this advice before approaching DW. If they had I would have told them to report the correct distribution of their salaries.

Another security factor that was bearing down on them was disclosing exact Salary amounts in Venezuela opens people up to be targets of robbery. I know the DMV guys have been mugged several times. Something that most people do not have to put up with.

The two pressures combined along with the repeated negative troll attack and as a consequence DMV made a bad decision in how they reported how much salary they were receiving.

The DASH community have responded appropriately and I think fairly and that is now in the past. But people like you however want to keep digging this up over and over because you want to bring them down and discredit them for your own gains. Each time you are doing this it is decreasing your credibility.

If you are George, or JulioDash or whoever I advise you to just move on. Use your energy in doing something positive.

You don't have a masternode, and you don't have anything to show that is positive in terms of contribution to DASH. Clearly you want to bring down others to benefit yourself. You can't get votes or support through your own positive contributions because you're incapable of doing this. ValenciaDash is clearly someone that is a project loser and has a grudge to bear. I had advised George Donnelly, stop running people down and focus contributing positively but he could not do that. Look where he is now an outcast with a bad attitude and poor reputation.

I know this advice will fall on deaf ears. Just move on mate. Let it go.

I can add that 1m2 of banner costs about $30 in Venezuela. This would be a lot of banners... Should be easy to get pictures of that or at least a receipt for the order!
Reply

a) is that cost just for printing of banner?
b) does it also include rental cost per month of the spot where the banner is placed?
