Thanks for asking, @Unstoppable !

In line with the original proposal, I'm aiming to produce:

- a conference
- 3 new Dash marketing teams in 3 large Latam cities
- a Dash leadership training program and training videos

For the conference, we looked at options in Brazil and Colombia. None were quite suitable. The one in Colombia was much too expensive. So, we're going to do a Dash-only merchant-centered conference here in Medellín Colombia October 27.

The 3 new Latam cities with new marketing teams are Bogotá (pop: 8m) (already got our first 3 merchants there), Sao Paulo (pop: 12m) (solid progress) and the third remains to be determined. Among the 3, we aim to add at least 25 new merchants, hold 3 Dash invites events and install 200 new Dash wallets.

(When this proposal ends, I'll be providing ongoing personal support to get these projects continued funding in whatever way makes the most sense.)

Rodrigo is taking charge of all the media production and is planning to attend the Medellín conference. Everything else remains to be seen.

Unfortunately, when this proposal failed the first time around, a lot of momentum was lost, especially among teams in the southern part of South America, so getting this particular vehicle moving again is requiring some work, but there is solid progress on the conference, on Bogota and on Sao Paulo. I am very optimistic about all 3.

With the Medellín conference, we expect attendance of as many as 200 people, mostly merchants, and to produce a lot of Dash transactions that day. Merchants are already contacting me asking for a spot in the event. We can produce a lot of new video of on the ground adoption of Dash in Latin America with it.

Things are going so well in Bogotá that we may have a surprise for the community there as well.

I stand ready to answer any questions about this anytime. I'm excited about where we are going to take this. Thanks again.

Hope this keeps going! Have not followed too closely so I don't know exactly whats going on but I like all the people. It's about the people in my opinion-the people make a project.

Watching the video now-the idea is great about the Dash Invites, get the people to come...get the merchants to collect. BOOM!
