Feb 10, 2018

Build demand and use case for dash in the fastest growing city of west Africa (Tamale, Ghana), through signing up
50 dash merchants, provide in-person dash liquidity and 100 new dash wallets at low cost.

  • Improve businesses: we aim to improve business operations within Tamale, in a massive way. By providing businesses with the appropriate information to accept dash. Make Tamale city, the hub of dash in west, Africa.
  • Dash mass adoption: we want to achieve Dash-only economy in Tamale by 2025 through concerted business adoption strategies and supported growth process. Build demand for dash that leads to more consumer and merchant adoption.
2.Why Vote Yes
  • More merchant adoption: The way to make dash a global currency is to get merchants accept and use dash around the world. Capitalizing on this interest, we need to get people to USE Dash and Dash alone to obtain goods and services. This proposal will address this important need- merchant integration. By increasing the number of functional dash merchants in Tamale from nine (9) to 59.
  • Merchants Backlog: Tamale is the hub for all commercial activities of Northern Ghana with the existence of numerous businesses. Getting dash accepted by merchants in this town means huge returns to dash. With the numerous commercial activities in Tamale, we have heap of businesses available to integrate, and this proposal will help us to on-board and orientate them on dash merchandise.
  • Economical: the amount requested to execute this project is reasonable, looking at the returns this will gain for dash. Our able-team will implement a business plan that is cost-effective, self-sufficient and with the ability to meet all project requirements in time.
3.The Action Plan
  1. One-on-One Business Meetups: We will visit 300 businesses (both small and medium) in the Central Business Districts and bus stations within the town, and Pitch them about DASH, how they can become merchants and how it can improve their cash flow. Also;-Install one of the primary 2 wallets and Anypay POS into their business computer. -Formalise the business on www.discoverdash.com and request for their emails for further support.
  2. Stickers and Social Media: We will market merchants by asking new merchants to put the “Dash Accepted here” sticker in their businesses as well as post on their website or social media that they are accepting dash.
  3. Adopt “Dash Invita” strategy by Dash Colombia: organise short events at the place of merchants that currently accept Dash to present dynamic training of about 10 minutes to new Dash users, individually or in successive groups of less than 10 people at a time. This helps merchants see why accepting Dash is valuable, and gets new users, and then connect these new users with opportunities to buy dash.
  4. Dash fair: organise a Multi-merchant promotional event at a public place with 5 or more Dash merchants where as many as 50 new users open wallets in under 4 hours, receive small airdrops, purchase more Dash, and spend their Dash at nearby Dash merchants.
4.Strategies for keeping merchants in operation

Enjoyed the video of yourself Sahabia! Looking at the budget requests everything looks good to me! You know what your doing-you've done meetups and such-there is no reason not to give this man a shot at this! Are you putting this in Dash Boost or the main treasury?

I think one method that works well with people and merchants is getting them on camera and interacting with them-can potentially get there attention and also have something for the masternodes to see. It can be tough to pull off but I see you have done it in the past. I think your doing good stuff and think Dash is lucky to have you engaging with the public on our behalf.
