i am guessing you probably havent been following our proposal deeply , if not please go through this pre-prosposal disucssion from the day we started it
if you go through these posts one by one you will find that there has been lot of posts from local venezuelans saying how they found merchants using getfreedash to give free breakfasts to people to some e-commerce players using dash directly as a result of getfreedash campaigns.
last few days been very positive for getfreedash as we have been approached by many businesses like dashnearby.com dashinformer ( feedbands ) and some local businesses as well. The point is once you build a large user base that has been introduced to dash , you can guide them to use various services like remittances etc.
just to be clear, we are not donating the free dash to Venezuelans by giving the $1 in dash, we are marketing dash to them , similar to what paypal did when they gave $10 to users initially. Building a strong user base in venezuela will give us a superb leverage to use that user base to unlock other services, thats the plan and building that initial network efforts take a bit of time but thats what gives us the ultimate monopoly among the cryptos.
to answer your question main question, yes some of the dash is probably sold but not all however the more important thing we are introducing 1000s of folks to cryptocurrency and dash in specific , they get to download a dash wallet ( stats over here http://bit.ly/dashwallet+ ) and they watch an introductory dash video
and build a community because its introduced to them by their friends or local businesses ( because of the referral component ).
Now achieving all this at $1 per user is probably one of the cheapest customer acquisition campaigns out there and if we scale this to say a million users or more , Dash will be the undisputed king of cryptos in Venezuela going forward.
Once everyone knows dash can do these sort of mega campaigns people will start giving the respect we deserve
If you used Wistia instead of YouTube you could actually see what percentage of people actually make it to the end of the video, also I believe it would be easy to make sure that they actually watched the whole thing before continuing on with a callback URL trigger on completion.
