Getting even more NO votes with no explanations. Wish I knew what people didn't care for about this.

It appears this is still active for the remainder of September's vote period - you can vote via the DMT (Dash Masternode Tool). Please do!

You got my vote! It fits perfectly in to the remaining budget. Let's turn this proposal green! 5 hours to go! Let's do this :-)

Seems quite unfortunate that this didn't pass even though we had near perfect amount of remaining funds for it. :(

43 DASH remains, only 41 for national endorsement ads on the radio. Any last minute questions?

Thank you to everyone who supports DASH advertising. Sadly, we didn't make it again.

Easy yes here. We'll come back around and re-up Kuva next month.

Thank you everyone for the support. I have asked for NO voters to please explain their votes and have heard mostly crickets. Besides The Crypto Show (read below for Danny's supportive message), is there any other media promotion going on for DASH at this time?

Thanks, but sadly we have been shot down twice already.

Since we originally made this proposal in July, the price of DASH has dropped over 40%. We will honor the original proposal, of course, which means if you vote YES, you're getting a heck of a discount on major national airtime.

Tight budget so voting no on all advertising if we can't even fund KuvaCash
Reply

Kuva is not going to get funded this month, plus they have at least a 2 month buffer.
Easy yes on this proposal for me.

This is the 3rd month that this proposal has been bumped due to a tight budget.

Here's a video I made this month showing how easy it is to buy DASH at a local Crypto Vending Machine, and then spending it at retail, thanks to Anypay. This is life in the Crypto Mecca of Keene, NH.

This is an incredible value for the amount requested, and I say that as someone who is usually against advertising spending. But one reason I'm against it is because it's often a high ask. This is very inexpensive and also has a demographic that is significantly more likely to be interested than the general public. Seems like a no-brainer.

Thank you ZedHead. Our reach is unprecedented for the price, and with the drop in DASH's price, it's now even cheaper than before. You can't buy ads on one local radio station for the cost we can get you on 190 of them nationwide!

According to one poster below, because I put this proposal in before Dash was upgraded in July, it has somehow magically extended voting on this proposal for another four weeks, even though it says the first payout should be mid-August. So I have no idea whether this thing will end mid-August or end-of-the-month, or what happens if it starts passing, so if you were "no" last month because of the core proposals, can you switch to a yes this month? Thank you!

Ok, so the deadline for this month has passed and this proposal still says it's expiring in a month. Does that mean there's another month before it's done or is it just going to be in limbo until whenever?

It says 29 days now.

Budget tight. Will vote YES in support.

I hope this comes back for another vote in a month or two when the budget is not so tight.

I have voted YES. I would like to see Dash on the https://www.freetalklive.com/ website - a tip jar in Dash would be nice to see!

We were told to come back this month as the budget was too tight last month. Should we be submitting later in the month rather than earlier? How else will I know what to expect regarding Core's requests?
Reply

We have had that for a long time, actually. http://crypto.freetalklive.com

Also, as I mentioned in my proposal, we still have a DASH banner up on one of the most popular pages on the site, our webcam page:

I see a lot of no votes coming in. Would anyone voting no care to explain why?

Also, anyone know why our voting deadline is "one month" while others are in two weeks? I'm pretty sure I didn't choose longer than one month when creating this.

Probably the "We’re not cashing out." aspect of your proposal.
Whales are apparently more interested in emulating Ripple by funding executives, handouts, projects that essentially just gift huge amounts of value as paychecks, and of course the payroll taxes to do such, as well as trying to become a state-like currency in third world countries.
Unless MNO's en masse start downvoting all the cashout proposals I'm unfortunately a little late downgrading Dash to a strong sell.

There was a software upgrade done, probably right after your proposal was submitted, as it was one of the first this month. Perhaps that would explain the strange "deadline in one month".
NO votes can probably be explained by those who want to ensure that CORE team gets funded. Community projects are not in the favor of MNOs right now because the budget is so tight. Try not to be discouraged. Easier said than done, right?

Please, before you vote this proposal down, state your concern. We can modify aspects of it. That is the nice thing about live radio, up to the moment the ad is read, we can change things.

These folks have reach. The only place I have used DASH for commerce was in Portsmouth NH and much of that is because of FTLs reach and commitment + AnyPay. They are hard working and stick to their principles. Happy to see this back in the running.

These guys have done a hell of a lot to promote Dash and are asking for pennies for this enormous reach. Sad it didn't pass last time, but now there should be plenty of room.

I am probably going to vote yes but any renewals I am apprehensive of. Dash is dropping in rank so whatever we are doing in all our advertising proposals is not translating into new users or investors.

Please consider changing how you advertise Dash, no one cares about transaction times low fees, security etc. Make a point about inflation proof money for example thats more interesting to people.
Reply

Fount4inhead, we do that. It's one of the things people can easily appreciate about crypto. DASH is not dropping in rank in real life here in Keene. It's the number one crypto at retail - runs circles around Bitcoin's usage.

I will include Inflation-proof money in the ad copy.

Most of the cryptos on http://coincap.io's listings aren't really currencies anyway. DASH is the best tech for actual currency in the top 25.
