Well, I didn't intend to do so. Sorry you feel I did. BTW, thank you for that. Although you seem quite angry, I honestly forgot all that stuff on my name, and the responsibility it entails, and you've rightfully reminded me of that. Thank you.

I dont think this has much to do with the proposal right now. But 16 x 16 is not 17000 but 256 which is what the price was at the time of the proposal. Yes the price went up, but just like you mentioned about Amanda, when DASH was 16 dls, Amanda asked for 250 DASH, and just like she said on her video proposal for DASH Detailed + Spotlight she said "we will ask for the amount that we have always asked from the very beginning". Back when she started with the proposal 122 dash was around 500, back on her proposal was made was 4 times that. So notice how the amount was in DASH and not dollars. For the record I dont think was money wasted, just I dont think that our meetups were wasted as we grew much more and also the documentation of each of our meetups grew.

Right now you can see on our FB page, our meetups have an accountability for pictures each meetups of the participants, a short video during the meetups and interviews to assistants for each meetup. So yeah the price surge after Anarcapulco help us to do a small upgrade in hardware and also be able to pay one of the members to dedicate to record and take pictures during our 3-4 hr meeting. And like I have been mentioned in the past, DASH didnt payed for the meetups themselves, they payed for a reward program that will give back in DASH whatever the people consume that day. This was not just DASH being given away blindly, the user should have to have a wallet to take the DASH by the end of the meeting, making a lot of new comers go home with DASH on their phones or laptops. Also helping them to shortcut taking DASH the original fashion which would be to have them to buy Bitcoin first. This is a disruptive experience since the user start his/her crypto life with DASH instead of Bitcoin.

Also as a side note, we have been the smallest proposal ever on the DASH Central not to mention the decisions proposals which just asked for the 6 dash (proposal fee). That really had no monetary purpose. So my question goes to the rest of the proposals that also benefit from the price increase? How exactly are you managing their proposals that went up 500% for let say, build an RPM package for Linux? You think they shouldnt make more proposals because they stroke rich on the first one? Or you think their next development should be free? I am not clear what exactly are you proposing here to do?

.
And it was immediately followed by a proposal for three more months which was approved and has been paid two months already.
Why are you pretending to be unaware of this?
Do you have a quote of us pretending this?

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.

Global diversity is important and 57 Dash is less than 1% of a single months budget. JZA and the folks around him have delivered both on previous proposals and on their own initiative, imho it would be a good use of funds.

Great post, plus it could help the widening of dash users and make the returns smaller

Can't really say if 57 Dash is a lot or not as a whole for what Dash destined to the spread of the use, but can say that thanks to Jza and Bitcuners in general, I have been to learn a lot about the criptoworld and have been able to use it to incorporate it to my carrer as a public account in Mexico, where I believed will be a huge oportunity.

Something interesting that also have seen is that a lot of people does the saying says: "come for the Dash, stay for the community", in the sense that even if the pay up for the food is nice, is not so rare that the people that come to the meetups doesn't ask it because instead, they prefer help with their own expertise to make reality diverses activities in their own communities and workplaces to use the Dash in their business as a thanks for letting them know about Dash and in a free way because, there are even more people that is asking money for the information that is given free in the community.

I want to thanks to dash dor the continued support and hope to continue helping to criptos and Dash in general.

Thanks, El_Criptoconta, that's really good to hear. I have always felt that grass roots efforts are the most powerful efforts, spreading the knowledge to "normal" people more so than anything else because, generally, you spread the information face to face, with real human connection. This is far more powerful than a TV commercial, which takes, according to some marketing rule, 7 viewings to remember, and has nothing to say about actually moving the viewer to act.

one on one sounds really s l o w, however, due to the exponential effect, it grows quickly and extremely effectively. Ultimately, it's far cheaper, in my opinion, as well.

This proposal, though, is not really for commercials, it's for spreading information. Once you have people interested, they can access the details via this proposal's videos, etc... This is just as important.

Hi, everyone.

As one of the Spanish speaking members of this community, of course I am thrilled about this proposal.

I mean, it is absolutely necesary to have a good quality source of information about DASH in Spanish.

I congratulate @JZA and his team in being first to propose this, I hope MNOs support this iniciative, which I am sure will be open to improvements in the future, as the experience tells us what works and what does not.

I foresee that << DASH Español>> and << DASH Caracas >> will be allies soon enough.

I think it would be useful to hear some advice from people who have already been succesful in this kind of iniciative in other languages, like @amanda_b_johnson @alex-ru @mastermined ... anyone else?

Also, it would be great that other Spanish speakings members would tell us what they think. So let´s invite them to read this thread: I can think of @fernando @Minotaur @SilvioHick @JuanSGalt

Who else would you guys like to invite to this discussion?

Hi.

It is pleasant to see growing activity of Spanish-speaking Dash community worldwide. Dash does need it - great initiatives! (existing and upcoming)
Well... I also feel here is some "overpaying issue" with Cancun meet-ups - but... I don't think it's a huge problem - the Dash Budget System is designed to be self-adjusting - the more "overpaying facts" happen - the more new activists it attracts - who can offer more effective activities for less money.

So IMO the best model will be - having several competing (friendly, not aggressively) dash-promo- teams - for self-adjusting and more effective operations.

Regarding advice... Is Spanish is so white spread on big territories on many countries

- So I would advice to focus main promo-activity on online (in Internet) promotion - Spanish Chats, Social Medias, Forums, YouTube, ... to cover the maximum of possible interested audience with minimum funding of this process.

As Venezuela is one of the most inexpensive country in this region (but very active at the same time and with nice people) - I feel that Caracas has all chances to become the Most effective "Dash capital of Spanish World". :)

I look forward to your initiatives aimed at the whole of Latin America to support them!

I believe JZA's network of friends includes Venezuela and Columbia as well. Actually, since JZA has been the lead of Open Office Spanish for like, a decade, his network is pretty amazing in the Open source world. That's one of the reasons I am so keen on keeping him in a Dash leadership position.

JZA also makes his living translating English to Spanish. In other words, he is fluent in both languages and can/will accurately convey information and know when people working on this are capable of conveying the information as well.

I mean, JZA is a real asset, as a person working to further our goals, not unlike Amanda. Of course completely differently and not so obvious (who isn't charmed and immediately in love with Amanda?) But JZA is a networking powerhouse. He, like you, Alex-ru, knows where to get the talent.

Before I cast my final votes for this proposal I would like the question I asked almost a month ago answered. As others have brought up I was wondering how the money was spent from the February-May "BITCUNERS_MEETUP_RENEWAL" proposal?
48 Dash Total.



1. How much Dash went to the meetup attendees?
2. How many attendees were there total during the 3 months? Approximately
3. How much Dash did you keep for yourself?


Below is my original question, someone else answered that you no longer did the program where you bought the refreshments and had people buy it back, I thought that was really cool and reminded me of how the Dash and Drink soda machine giveaway worked. I now see it was replaced with a different program... "Our
program of DASH for Drink, where people get their consumption reimbursed at the end of the meeting"


"Mastermined 1 point, 25 days ago
Are you still giving out free Dash and then having people use the Dash to buy refreshments? That was how this started but now I just see people with Popsicle sticks with a Dash sticker. What happened to the original program I voted for?
Do you have an itemized break down of how the money has been spent?
Thanks"

From the link you showed, it seems that TheSingleton said that "they buy refreshments with cash/fiat and get reimbursed with dash."

I think there was a misunderstanding, he didn't said that we no longer do the program. From what I understood is that we give a DASH reimbursement for their fiat use, which is correct. As for the popcicles of DASH was a way to increase the awareness of DASH in the group and have some sort of paper-trail of the meetup by having pictures of the members with them.

The Dash for Drink still ON thanks to the price increase of DASH we have kept the program for the time being. The Bitcuners meetup budget was 16 dash a month, which was one of the historic lowest DASH asked from any proposal. The funding was abruptly cut before the last payment due to some downvoting. Fortunately our DASH funding has kep the program afloat for a few more months. As for the atendees the group has grown from 5-8 to 30-50. We get new people everyday from diferent backgrounds and we are happy with the results the program has given.

Now about this proposal is pretty much a product of our growth, now that locally we have the brain power to come with larger projects including this one that will benefit the network beyond what me personally could have done on its own. I think this site will build on the work from Dash Espanol, the FB page, and the Telegram group and the FB group into better developed enterprise than just one guy doing moderation and content management.

I think DASH Espanol will start with a small team of 5 but has the potential to become its own DAO with project aimed to consolidate teams across the different countries. Like Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico, Argentina and more to come. This could potentially harvest hundred of indiviuals, companies and businesses to use DASH.

Hopefully I will talk more about this on tomorrow's interview on Cash Alternative.

IronVape was pointing out that TanteStefana could have been aware, and should have been aware of the later proposal. She admitted that one had slipped her mind.

Everybody take a deep breath now.

Most of the masternodes are not spanish speakers. I'm sure if you made a sample video in english to promote your current proposal, that would help the masternodes to get to know you better. Just do a five minute mock up of the proposed video format. It doesn't have to be perfect. I understand that you want better equipment. I want to get it for you with an approved proposal.

I WANT you to succeed. A good source of information regarding Dash, in spanish is essential. I am giving you tools and constructive criticism to succeed.

OK, just finished your video interview with Tao. Great interview!


Now that I have had this opportunity to get to know you, and understand your skills and your perspective and your plan for the Dash Spanish information outlet, you have my votes!

I would encourage people to go watch the video and go vote!

Venezuela alone could zoom Dash to 3rd place, or perhaps 2nd place in market cap. And it would do more good for everyday Venezuelans than all the "help" that foreign aid and foreign intervention could ever do.

This proposal would:

Help Venezuela,
Help Mexico,
Help Spain,
Help Central and South America
Help all of the spanish speaking world,
Help Dash!

Demographic fact of the day, there are more native spanish speakers than there are native english speakers.

We need to get this done, and JZA has the skills and the motivation and the connections to accomplish this.

Again I say, go vote.

Ok, thanks for the info, I did not realize funding was cut before the last payment.
My questions still remain regarding the 36 Dash that was paid out.

As of July 21st...
1. How much Dash went to the meetup attendees?
2. How much Dash did you keep for yourself? How many Dash do you still have?
