Hi. I am JZA from the Bitcuners group in Cancun. I was lead on the Dash in Cancun project which we feel was highly successful. We have been planing this continuation of outreach for a while now and finally have all the pieces to launch our latest proposal together. This proposal will benefit and increase the adoption, not only in Latin America but of DASH world wide.
I am the admin of Facebook DASH (Dinero Digital) and DASH (Digital Cash) groups as well as co-admin of DASH En Español fb page. I am also part of a crypto enthusiast group in Cancun called Bitcuners which successfully did an event recently in Cancun for merchant adoption. You can read an article about the event from one of the assistants.
Today we are launching (landing page) http://dashespanol.com
We are starting our network of bloggers, podcasters and experts to provide educational training materials as well as social media to inform the community. With a current network of 5 guys we are starting our network from around the globe. At the moment we have 1 designer, 1 producer, 2 bloggers, and 1 podcaster.
Latin America is a big adopter and player of cryptocurrency with many countries experiencing with tight economic and monetary regulation. Cryptocurrency has been a great opportunity for users to escape the failed economies, extreme corruption and political impunity.
We hope to provide well documented information and get good quality equipment and video editors and produce original work for the DASH network.
What we want
We want to go have this grow, however we want to ask the DASH network for support in acquiring equipment, and some rewards to our team. We are looking for a one month payment of 57 DASH.
At the moment we will start with the blogs and podcasts as we organize the teams and get the necessary information to get this wheels turning. We don't want to overpromise and underdeliver but we do see that there are some desired things we could achieve with relative ease since we have the necessary communication channels.
- Daily news article in Spanish.
- Weekly podcast on our brand new youtube DASH Español channel
- Weekly opinion blog with summary of the week's event around DASH
- Art and gallery expo for DASH aficionados
- Reward and marketing projects and contests
- Grassroot event rewards
Some of the things we want might need some fixed costs including equipment, location and other related costs.
This will allow the community to get better quality information on their native language. We also want to push new ideas that can be integrated into the network.
- Video recording equipment 10 dash
- Production costs 2.5 dash
- Web development cost 8 dash
- Location rent 4 dash
- Team rewards 22.5 dash
- Marketing/Advertising/SEO 5 dash
- Proposal cost 5 dash
- Total: 57 dash
We want to build a CMS site using Django CMS hosted on Digital Ocean's Load Bancer on recurrent droplet network, able to handle a heavy load of traffic.
Site will be suing material design layouts with integration to the discuss commenting system.
Video material will be shoot in 1080p, with high quality hardware based compression for online distribution.
Studio will be enabled with a high availability fiber network for fast upload of videos.

The Bitcuners group in Cancun Mexico are still actively promoting Dash to local businesses and are awaiting the latest wallet update which will allow Kodaxx’s POS to run smoothly. We are an army waiting for supplies and marching orders. Although we have many merchants already using Dash, the merchants with more complex inventory systems, etc… are looking forward to the Dash POS. which needs a few capabilities from the Core team’s next release.
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to serving Dash again soon.
That was a long time ago, lasted 3 months and ended in March, just as the price was about to take off.@TanteStefana
"they don't get paid for meetups" ---- Yes they do. They get 16 Dash / month for the last 5 months and will get another 16 before they ask for more. That is more than $2,500.00 per month just to host a meetup. If ten poeple ahow up thats $250 each. I find it very hard to believe that you are not aware of this fact.
I also find it odd that the first three responses on this thread are from brand new members all of whom have exactly one post in their history and all of whom say "wow great proposal".
I am also conserved that you choose to accuse me of exaggerating. I took my best guess at the attendance count when this "event" was posted and it looked like about 35 people. Subtract from that the standard 10 people that go to the Free Dash Bitcoin meetup anyway and that leaves 25 new attendees to split 240 Dash... About 10 Dash / per person. AKA $1,700.00 each.
You say that the real question is "Why am I concerned?".
I am concerned because I am paying attention.

We need the information in Spanish, I met @JZA in a Bitcunners meetup and we are working together so we can have more establishmets that accepts Dash, starting in Cancun and then in all Mexico and latinamerica. For many establishments owners its dificult to learn about cryptocurrencies and it could be much easier if they had the information in Spanish. We all ready have 1 Printshop and 1 Food establishment and its been hard to explain them what is Dash and criptocurrencies, blockchain, becouse almost all the information is in english.
