got a donation of 5 dash :) , thanks for that.

we are thinking of launching a getfreedash app, so that the whole user onboarding process is much easier and quicker ( we are planning to use flash call technology for user verification which is the super cool https://www.sinch.com/products/verification/flash-call-verification/ ). we can target countries like nigeria , ghana and india after this ,one country at a time ;).

Hey Dashers,

thrilled to let you know getfreedash.com just crossed 1000+ in total sign ups and getting 100+ sign ups on a daily basis now , as most of you know , i have created getfreedash.com and have even made a proposal for the same , unfortunately it failed to pass though despite getting almost 99% positive comments (some say because the amount requested was high at 250 dash per month others say its was buried deep in the proposal lot :) ) , however i continued the site with my own money.

After lot of experimentation and tweaking around, we finally cracked it, we are getting tons of traffic from venezuela, almost 100-150 sign ups per day, since sim cards are not free and cost $1 or more to get in venezuela, most of the sign ups are individual folks ( not hackers ) , we have checked the IP addresses and time stamps all point to unique user behaviour.

one a side note , Owning to the hyperinflation in venezuela $1 is average weekly pay hence people are still showing lot of interest for the giveaway.

As a testimony to our success couple of guys have even created youtube videos about getfreedash.com just recently



so far i have spent over $15,000 in building the site ,coding, giveaway and the previous failed proposal cost. Currently i am planning to spend around $2000 per month on giveaways , however i feel that might not be enough as this site is going viral and now i need support from you to go forward.

Here's my address given below , please donate generously so we can continue this project going forward till end of Feb, i am looking at 10 dash in total to run without any interruptions.

EDIT: we have received 5 dash so the proposal is back on . will post a proposal with a lower amount of 50-75 dash per month .

P.S we have all the stats like payment addresses, phone numbers ,ip addresses etc which we are happy to showcase to the core team / greencandle /MNOs / reputed people incase they want to verify





donation link https://chainz.cryptoid.info/dash/address.dws?Xmw8tkLBfRHgjr4UDPuDff1TnZPVZtf73m.htm

This is a great opportunity to help the folks a little and also spread dash like wildfire within the state of venezuela

sounds perfect all you need to do is get your referral link then fire up your sms and emails and let the moolah roll :)

Can you please upload the exact numbers when you upload the next Charts. As the data set grows we should imo be able to make a quite accurate forecasting for March. I think we underestimate how much you’d need to successfully continue this undertaking. This is a incredible promising shot for adoption.

How’s the fraud protection/further information how to use dash going?

i will upload all the data over the weekend, once i publish that you can do analytics on the spending patterns etc ( i am still working full time in a non-crypto job which i hate :) ) , you are right if we grow at an exponential rate , we would have to stop new sign ups unfortunately constrained by the money. I hope the core team and other big MNOs take give their blessing so that we can ask for a higher amount.

we are planning to roll-out dash App ,which will make it incredibly easy to invite all your phone contacts in one shot.

the biggest fraud we have is one user creating multiple profiles and claiming free dash, we have multiple strategies to fight that , first off the sim cards in venezuela cost around $0.5- 1 usd so that's a big dis incentive to cheat, we are also asking for a selfie and will soon start facial recognition which will eliminate fraud 100%.

The biggest worry i have is to stop the sign ups mid way and lose all the traffic :( - we are now getting 100 sign ups every 3 hours :) :)

@Ryan Taylor @tungfa @fernando @Bradley Zastrow , can we have your blessing to grow at full speed ?

Ok great. Can I PM you for an idea that i have for that Sms and email campaigns? We are ready to start and we have a rich database (+2000 college students), this could go to the moon in less 1 day. So Im worry this could crack your server if I shoot this message all in once.

Thank you very much for help us with this initiative.
Dash has had a major impact on our economy even though there are still no big stores that accept Dash.
In Venezuela we have trusted on it as a refuge of value and has been one of the best options.

How long do you want your proposal to be? If it keeps growing like this maybe make a new proposal each month. That would allow you to start small making it more likely to pass. And then increase the asking amount when needed.

we will start with 100 dash for 3 months, After first month when people get confidence about getfreedash.com, we can ask for lot more money. i think we can sign up 0.5-1 million users from different countries like nigeria , philippines, vietnam , zimbabwe - where the sim cards cost $1 or more and have huge remittance markets and other crypto friendly economies.

Getfreedash wants to expand its service and use cases hugely once we get the numbers.

In that case I cast a conditional vote in your poll. (which is a "vote the numbers" poll and I love it!!)

If you upload the data
then

if there is analytics on the spending patterns
then

myvote="500+ dash :)"
else
myvote="150+ dash"
endif
if you extend your service to all possible countries

then

myvote=myvote+1000 dash
end if
else
myvote="100 dash"
endif


All the above included in a clause "if I were a masternode" (which I am not :p)

Daily stats for sign ups - Are you ready ?? :)

upload_2018-2-8_10-17-15.png

Site was down Jan 14-28 for various upgrades
Unique IPs is an approximate indicator of unique user behaviour


given this level of growth its very hard to continue unless we receive some more donations, alternatively what do you think we should do so that we can run uninterrupted till end of feb

@Green Candle @greencandle_jeremy @greencandle_ryan @greencandle_clark would you guys be able to help us provide escrow so MNOs have confidence to support us, thanks

Thanks a lot @tungfa , appreciate it.

yes , catching fraudsters is the no 1 priority , just having a sim card verification is enough for venezuela ,but we went ahead to get a selfie as well to stop any potential fraud.

we are planning to implement liveness detection( if we get funded) which will eliminate fraud almost completely.

@Dashmaximalist Sorry if this has already been addressed, but will you just be sending the same amount of Dash back to the address that it was donated from if the proposal is funded?

That is correct, you will get your money back, but some people send from exchanges that creates issues, so the best thing is for people to claim the amount they sent and i will send the same amount back once our proposal passes.

here are the payment stats and addresses ( its not fully updated , will fix it by weekend )

Do you have a dashd running somewhere? You can apply dash-cli queries to it.
You can use the commands
Code:
dash-cli getaddressbalance '{"addresses": ["XwnLY9Tf7Zsef8gMGL2fhWA9ZmMjt4KPwg"]}'
dash-cli getaddresstxids '{"addresses": ["XwnLY9Tf7Zsef8gMGL2fhWA9ZmMjt4KPwg"]}'
and get the balance and the txids of the addresses. So you can watch whether people hold the dash you gave them or whether they exchange it to fiat money.

read below how you set up the dashd in order to ask address specific questions.

I like that Hockey stick graph.

Looking forward to seeing some further stats and the extrapolations that can be made.
