Colibit: Enabling a free Dash/VEF market in Venezuela
This is a resubmission of the original proposal that was voted in the December voting cycle but failed by 6 votes. When this proposal get's to 5% GreenCandle will provide Colibit with the first month of development funds so that they can get started on this project. Venezuela needs our help!
- Enable DASH/VEF market in Colibit Cryptocurrency Exchange in Venezuela.
- Paid marketing campaign through Colibit's social media and Colibit's landing page Dash branding.
- Education through Colibit's dedicated live chat channels (site live chat, Facebook chat and Telegram bot).
- Special Dash fee for a year after adding Dash markets. No fee for Dash deposits, Dash withdrawals, Dash order maker and only 0.1% for Dash order takers.
- Dash giveaway of 0.002 for 5000 KYC verified users. Including already verified users plus new ones. The purpose is for both promoting Dash and for initial market Dash funding.
- Project escrowed by GreenCandle. Payouts to Colibit through milestone completion in a 6 month development cycle.
This proposal didn't receive enough votes by the deadline (6 votes short) so it was not passed in last months budget.

Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?
|No comments so far?
Be the first to start the discussion!
a) why not keep running telling customers to use a vpn?
b) why not host the site in a different country where conatel cannot block the vpn?
c) cryptolifex exchange is looking to apply for a license with vez gov, how come colibit is not looking to do same?
Despite not having reached the required support yet, we are confident that MNOs will find new value in the changes presented to them in this revised version. This relatively small expenditure will have far a reaching impact on people's daily lives. This is not a cry for help, but a cry for action. I am asking MNO's to get involved and support a worthy cause now. Let us help Colibit spread Dash in Venezuela and make a meaningful difference.
Carry on! Have fun! Win!
First, because this talks about the resilience of the team, after a big frustration, they quickly reinvented themselves and tried again, with renewed enthusiasm and strength, and learning from their previous experience.
And also because... WE REALLY NEED THIS IN VENEZUELA!!!!
Thanks to all MNOs, Greencandle and the rest of DASH Community for the support you are giving to Venezuela, it is a light of hope in this black nigth we are living. THANK YOU!!!
The proposal is showing on some of the community run sites (such as this one) as passed but in fact the votes that came in, to allow this proposal to be passed, didn't come in until after the voting cycle was closed last month. Since these votes didn't arrive until after the cycle closed it meant that this proposal wasn't included in the funding cycle.
This has caused a great deal of confusion (and additional stress to everyone involved) because after the roller coaster last month we came short by 6 votes but then also saw the proposal green after the fact. It caused an emotional roller coaster but if you step back and look at the blockchain and at the Superblocks that just occurred you will notice that this proposal was not included in those Superblocks and it was never paid out.
It is a great reminder to the Dash Nation that every vote counts! In this proposal the difference was only 6 votes and the passing votes were in transit to the network but were not received with consensus until after the block came that closed the voting cycle. Hopefully all MNO's will consider this and vote early and often in this cycle!
I love this proposal and think we should be doing more for poor countries.
We can literally save lives with Dash and get adoption as digital cash!
