Introduction Please vote!!! gobject vote-many 5543f43e995ff36fc3c4d1c6c280c3aa4cc3bfe154604e2ffdaa55aa69460b63 funding yes A pre-proposal to install a Dash branded ATM in Lyon city center. France has a very low adoption rate for cryptocurrencies. This leaves an opportunity to be the first major accepted digital currency. Dash lacks fungibility for most users and has very low brand recognition outside of the cryptocurrency community We would be placing a Dash enabled and branded ATM in the Lyon city center. Why should Dash fund this? Dash would be branded on the machine. Giving potentially tens of thousands of Dash users easy access. The machine would be BTC enabled but Dash users would have a 2% lower fee for the first few years. Part of the grant would be to prepay the lower fees and part to secure a premium location. With a higher rent means more exposure. Plus, Dash logos on the machine would be permanent. An advertisement that would pay for itself many times over. Cash to Dash is currently enabled on all General Bytes machines. The sales office informed me Dash to cash would be available in the coming months, most likely summer. The graphics would be installed by the manufacturer so you can be assured of the quality of the Dash logos. Lyon is a major University city, has a high level of tourism and over 2.2 million people living in the metropolitan area. I will provide monthly updates on Dash transactions, this will help determine the demand generated by a Dash branded ATM! Who are we? My name is Christopher Felix, doing business as disaf.fr (Distributeur automatique France). I own, place, and manage penny press machines in the central France region. I have been in the business for nearly two years and I’m looking to expand to Dash ATMs. I am American born and have a background in business administration and logistics. In the US I worked for RICOH Logistics USA as an exporter. I am also an Oxford trained English teacher at the Ecole des Mines in Saint Etienne France. A highly ranked engineering school. I am currently seeking a certificate in database development and design to improve my technical business knowledge. My name is Isabelle Felix, I have been a freelance photographer for more than ten years. I contract real estate photography primarily but also provide administrative services to my clients, a local investment firm. I am French but have lived in the United States and Switzerland as well. I am currently learning web design and development to further my education and provide needed services for my clients. Grant requested We would be asking for around 70 Dash. The value of Dash has been more volatile lately so I cannot give you an estimate in Euros. That would include a refund of the 5 Dash application fee. The grant would pay for Dash graphics, a premium rent location and prepay lower fees for Dash users. At 2% lower than BTC, even Bitcoin users would likely buy Dash and then exchange. It is worth noting that BTCFacile offers partnerships for 2,700 Euros in the area. They offer legal and banking aid to their partners and provide maintenance. They do not have Dash though. A Dash ATM could cost over 25,000 eur in the first year without the existing contracts. I will be carrying the majority of the risk myself.
