Dear DASH Community,

We are totally happy to share with you our proposal news and update carried out during April 2018.

As Director of the Dash Community of Argentina I want to share with the entire Dash Community the scope of our activities in the First Dash Friendly City in Argentina.

The receptivity in the Media and the Authorities was amazing, 13 stores submited their information and started accepting DASH, also we open more than 200 new DASH users wallets.

Finally we reach some important facts that we face and solve during our first month. As you know our goal is to develope the First Dash friendly pilot city, as well we wanted to let more than 5000 people discover DASH this as a milestone by using media presence.

Our first activity was to make a Conference for goverment staff, bussinessmen and traders, so we gave TV, radio and newspapers interviews, promorional signs at the entire city and some personal interviews with people interested in DASH.

As you might imagine, we needed to enlarge and make a further develope for our website, where the people would be informed about our activities, news and relevant stuff. As well we offer the website's visitants to register their shops, so the locals can find them in one place, besides Discover Dash already exists, some times the language is a limitation, that's the main reason we decided to run a local shop locator. In a near future we would love to populate Discover Dash with local information like an extra help for our existant and new ones.
