Executive summary: Chant is a Dash Infrastructure, marketing, and communications proposal. Every Chant user on signup will open a Dash Wallet Chant is a pro-social Music retail app. Every Chant user on signup to purchase music will automatically open a Dash wallet as the Evolution system evolves. Planned integration with Evolution could allow Chant username used as a Dash address. The simplicity of the user interface proposed from Evolution can be promoted to a Global audience through the Chant journey arriving at Headline and Superstar acts. Chant will promote Dash as the preferred payment to the Chant user community. We will explain it saves on transaction fees and allows more money to the artists and environment. Dash users can receive price discounts - meeting greets- VIP ticket upgrades, specialist merchandising, exclusive production mixes only available to those who paid in Dash etc... increasing the motivation to use Dash. Fans will be able to send Dash to each other enhancing utility. The new and cool way to buy music and spend money. (to be negotiated with artists management on a case-by-case basis) What is Chant? Using The Chant App the fan uniquely hears new pre-released or classic tracks and purchases their favorite music by recording and upload their Chant. Live shows can have a profile too so the fan can add their voice to live events. The fan’s voice creates a visual and trackable ‘sonic footprint’. This is followed by a notification confirming their place in the upcoming unique Chant mix. Producers and musicians engineer the fan’s Chant into their songs, along with those of other fans who have selected the same track. This creates a fresh sound that is used by the artist as part of the mix. The fan becomes a member of ‘The Band.’ The Chant track is down loaded to the Chant App unique Music Library and the fan notified. The fan’s voice becomes part of an online growing community. The fan will be encouraged to use their Dash wallet for payment. Artists thank the fans for their participation by crediting each individual on the band’s and Chant’s websites. So begins a unique long-term dialogue that enriches and reinforces relationships between artists and their fans, building strong communities and growing fan bases. Artists and Record companies support Chant because there is mass consumer participation. The fans become a new instrument to play with. The artists and Record companies get paid in advance, monetize their back catalog, and their chosen causes get funded. New technology ensures that the new tracks can’t be pirated. Fans love Chant because they get direct access to their favorite artists, pre-release music and back catalog, whilst helping environmental and humanitarian projects. The key to Chant is our music pipeline including headline talent with loyal fans in the millions. The marketing is done by the artists to their fan bases, therefore, Dash is investing in access to existing Global markets. A telco company could have 10 million customers. If they ask their customers to do something the uptake is very low. A major artist with 10 million followers does the same and the uptake is very high. Corporations spend significant amounts to be associated with talent. Rarely do they get to access the fan bases in the mechanism that we are proposing. Dash receives access to 'Opinion Formers' that would normally cost significant amounts to promote a product by default by joining us on the Chant Journey. Four example a major artist can be paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to tweet on the advantages of a product. Fans tend to follow artists as lifestyle 'Opinion Formers' and the commercial advantages in increased sales is well studied. The Dash Chant elegant fit means that you're accessing the artist community by default in a subtle secondary but 100% integrated way. The artist is not going to feel exploited and be asking for their normal fees. The fan will not feel that they're having a product 'Sold' to them, however, will see the advantages of using Dash over FIAT, this is the magic of this proposal. We have studded the Dash new Evolution innovation and have restructured the proposal to take on board its simplicity. The first thing we will be doing should the proposal go through, is integrating Systems to facilitate the purchasing process proposed above. Our in-house code-writing team is ready to take this work on. As Dash will be an integral part of the Chant Music purchasing process Dash will be promoted by us as an innovation. Money as a public service. By avoiding banking fees more money goes to artists and charities which has pro-social public relations advantages too. Chant is turning fan from a recipient of music into an active participant - this is seen as an innovation by artists and potential game changer. Dash and Chant are culturally aligned as you are a game changer too, so we hope there is the potential for an elegant fit in a relationship going forward. Chant has been communicating with the Dash core team for three months and we have escrow service and contract negotiated. This proposal will go live in July for the August payment cycle as arranged with Dash. We had positive feedback when this was posted last time but we had five days at the end of the last cycle and the community asked us to come back with more time to review. Since the last proposal, we have found half the capital needed to implement the fully funded plan within our team and investors. We are therefore now requesting that Dash only invests the other half. This mitigates Dash risk and creates a mutually beneficial project. Previously we were going to ask for the other half in a second proposal and this is no longer the case so amount requesting is halved. Chant has allocated $500,000 of stock for Dash should this proposal go through, the same amount we are requesting. The equity service at Dash core is in development and not ready for a contract on this, however, we will hold onto this for you and make this available when your processes are able to take this up. We took on board the community's remarks with regard to the last proposal summarised below. Standing on the shoulders of these music giants (Some with 10,000,000's of fans) Dash can access existing communities. Every Chant user on signup will open a Dash wallet as the Evolution system evolves. Planned integration with evolution could allow Chant username used as a Dash address. Fans will be able to send Dash to each other enhancing utility and increasing uptake. Evolution new user interface can be promoted through the Global music industry. We have worked with Dash core team, under advice from the pre-proposal in order to establish a contract and an escrow agreement with milestones. Dash users can receive discounts- meeting greets- VIP ticket upgrades, specialist merchandising etc increasing the motivation to use Dash. (to be negotiated with artists management on a case-by-case basis ) Fans motivated too use Dash to purchase music as all Chant users have Dash wallets. The new and cool way to buy music. The app has been developed and tested by a world-class technology and business development team with code writing in-house. Founders have a history of producing results in environmental sustainability and the music Industry. See CV's Offering Dash as the exclusive cryptocurrency gateway for 24 months in the contract. 20% of the fans music purchase price goes to charitable causes chosen by the artists and fans. By avoiding banking fees by using Dash more money goes to artists and charities. Offer to pay these Charities/ Not-For-Profits in Dash accessing their further big communities. Can offer the Chant Dash donation/ purchase mechanism to charities. Offering artists - Dash - to tweet out a thank you to their communities. Chant has an in-house testing band 'Chant Live’ Chant will promote Dash as the sponsor of this get-go Band 'Chant Live’ putting Dash at the core of this new musical movement. We pay all musicians who play with the Chant Live testing band in Dash. As an open source jamming band some very big names in music Play with us. We will pay their expenses in Dash. Estimate 100 people over the forthcoming year. We will pay 16 Chant staff in Dash. Half of the capital requirement for this plan has been found within Chant team. We are therefore splitting the cost of the fully funded plan with Dash. Link ……Pre Proposal Link.......Chant/Dash Narrative Taking On Board Feedback From Pre-Proposal Link.......

Chant’s Mission The world is ready for disruptive revolution. It’s not silent but driven by technology and by the collective voices of the world’s youth and music fans who will use the Chant App to join the Chant community scaling Dash's user reach.

Chant adds promotional channels through the Chant live art Band, live events, digital music sales, and brand sponsorship, live music, and art events and ticketing, video uploads, music sales, and publishing, merchandising, pre-release music and back catalog sales. Chant plans to engage over 1 billion people within the next five years. Chant is the brainchild of Daniel Morell and co-founded by renowned producer Martin (Youth) Glover. Dan coined the term ‘Carbon Neutral’ and has planted over 13 million trees around the world. Martin (Youth) Glover has produced and worked with; Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, The Verve, Primal Scream, Pink Floyd etc. and is a founding member and bass player of Killing Joke. Chant empowers, engages, transforms, disrupts, mobilizes and leads on at scale to achieve the Mission. Join our revolution! "The voice inside your head" The cost to the fan Each download on the Chant App can cost the fan £2 which is split 50:50 between the artists/Record Companies and Chant. Both parties make a 20% donation to the artists and fans chose charitable causes. This means that for every £2 raised from each Chant upload, 40p will be donated to environmental and humanitarian projects. The purchase price can vary upwards or down dependent on the uptake and special promotion. (Several Sponsors have expressed willingness to pay costs of purchasing music as a customer retention gift, we can suggest they do this through Dash ) Current Assets Chant Live band with ‘A’ line musicians: Roster of headline bands, Record label, and publishers support: In-depth research: Industry pre-sales: Powerful team and advisors. Sponsor pipeline. Access to global audiences. Refined marketing plan. Live Audience testing. Branding, Chant App, tech and code writing in-the-house: Legal, trademarks worldwide. Web domains: Chant has access to Headline artists. To convert this pipeline an art and guerrilla marketing technique best suits the widespread adoption of Chant. The first audience has been the artist's community. Chant has kept under the radar about what is being developed so that the “wow factor” of using the app can have the largest effect. We want to make Chant inclusive so that any artist can use. If a headline act launched Chant it would be forever associated with them and they may put others off. We want Chant to be agnostic of the genre and associated with a positive experience. Our in-house band CHANT live will be the first adopter and tester of the app. This will be followed by credible artists with small followings. We will then be moving on too medium and Headline acts. As well as uploading your voice into pre-release or back catalog songs the Chant app enables the audience to load their voices into a live show. We have successfully tested this with live shows looping the audience's voices into the mix turning the audience into an instrument. This has worked especially well at festivals. Please see the videos attached. Testing We have developed the beta app and will introduce this at a Chant Live gig soon. We then move on to the credible but small acts that have already created tracks for us. This enables the testing to take place on ourselves, the Chant Live Band followed by three acts. We use this for development feedback to improve the app experience. Average social media Followers per Act sise Small act ............... - 10,000 to 50,000 Medium act........... - 50,000 to 500,000 Superstar act ....... - 500,000 to 60,000,000 Number of acts per segment from Chant assumptions in the budget Small ............
