DASH TRADING CLUB PRE AND BUDGET PROPOSAL

CURRENT STATUS AND INVESTMENTS


Minería Virtual has been building a cryptocurrency community for two years. We have spent time and resources teaching people about this market in both the mining and trading areas. This cryptocurrency community built with determination and perseverance has grown to reach over 36,000 members.

The experts at Minería Virtual have taught hundreds of people with personalized attention and strategies to start trading and using cryptocurrency. People in Venezuela need to find a new way to protect their savings, capital and income because of the dire currency devaluation. Venezuelans need a decentralized digital currency and an innovative way to increase their capital. We realized that Dash is the best solution. Minería Virtual saw and opportunity in the adversity that Venezuela faces, and we decided to start a Dash Trading Club.

We have spent the past six months informing masses about our Trading Club and conditioning the location we dispose of to have the club meetings. We have invested in human capital as well as technological resources. For example, we have bought monitors, laptops, hdmi cables, wifi routers, whiteboards, zoom membership, tradingview pro membership, and more. Details can be viewed on the budget table at the end of this proposal. Minería Virtual has already spent approximately $ 10,000.00 in this project.

Things have begun to run smoothly, but we would like to do it bigger and better so that Dash and the club members can get the best of out this project. This is how Minería Virtual decided to embark on the development of this proposal and present it to the Dash Community with the hopes of receiving approval.


PROPOSED PRE BUDGET


PHASE 1: PLACE

During this phase the tasks that we will carry on with are to accomplish a proper setup of the place where the first Dash Trading Club will be established. We plan to rent a location that best fits the needs of the potential trading club members. Based on the sites we have visited and evaluated, we have come up with a list of some general infrastructure changes that will most likely need to be made to the place we decide on, for instance: new decoration, redistribution of space and existing furniture, new furniture, and lighting improvement. Also previous to closing a rent deal with any party, we will go through a legal advisory process in order to prevent any possible future inconveniences.

Aside from physical infrastructure details, we will also focus on acquiring all services needed for the club to start operating. Since stable internet connection is essential for trading, this is where we will invest more time and capital. In Venezuela the internet connection can be slow and unreliable. Therefore, we will contact the best internet providers and have wireless bans for each person in case the internet fails. Other services we consider necessary are phone, cleaning, air conditioning maintenance, and computer maintenance.

Lastly, at this point of this initial stage, our team will proceed with stocking of supplies needed for the Trading Club. The items necessary include basic office supplies, backup cables, emergency and first aid kits, cleaning materials, and cafeteria supplies.

PHASE 2: PERSONNEL

Mineria Virtual has a team of experts in trading that will be involved in this trading club. These experts will play the role of incubators for a period of approximately three months or the time necessary. The purpose of this is to help train the personnel that will assume responsibilities necessary to maintain trading club operating smoothly. Once the workers are trained, and the organizational structure is established, Mineria Virtual trading experts will not continue to lead the trading club. However, these experts will stay supportive and provide constant orientation.The proposed initial organizational structure can be detailed in the following figure. The human resources section of the budget was calculated based this structure.

PHASE 3: MARKETING


During this stage we will focus on gaining potential members for the Dash Trading Club. We plan on hosting online meetups and live meetups to promote the Trading Club.


The online meetups will be held using the user friendly platform Zoom. Minería Virtual already has a subscription to Zoom so there is no need to invest in that service as of right now.


As far as live meetups, the team has already hosted a few. These have been held at the facility where Minería Virtual is established in Caracas, Venezuela. However, we plan to rent a better location in order to increase the participant capacity for upcoming meetups. We have successfully held four meetups during this year. Through these meetups we have accomplished to gather more potential club members. We plan on making the remaining meetups before the launch as interactive and interesting as possible. We would like to include giveaways such as: Dash apparel and Dash units.

The launch will be the biggest event. We plan to put in motion a top of the line marketing strategy involving: flyers, email promotion, social media marketing, raffles and advertising on the radio. Our goal is to fill the Dash Trading Club facility with the most promising potential trading club members that the city of Caracas has. This launch event is the key to the beginning of a successful Dash Trading Club, and it will be very beneficial for Dash adoption and awareness.


PHASE 4: OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE


Once the Dash Trading club begins operating there will be some fixed costs necessary to operate and to maintain the facility and organization. The main costs are related to the location, services and personnel. In order to ensure operability bills for water, electricity, phone, internet, and cleaning services will have to be taken care of. The payroll of the employees will be based upon the final organizational structure established. The budget was calculated using the proposed initial structure discussed in phase 2.



WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR: DASH SUPPORT AND TRUST

Minería Virtual has already started this project. As stated at the beginning at least $ 10,000.00 have been invested, 6 months of dedicated work to start the club, and two years building a trading community. We would like to be the founders of the first Dash Trading Club in Venezuela. Once we successfully reach this goal we will expand throughout the country and Latin America.

We would like the Dash community on our side, because Dash is the cryptocurrency that is gaining most popularity and adoption in Venezuela. We believe that our trading clubs will contribute to the growth of the Dash Ecosystem. Using Dash to trade and handle all of our financial operations will accelerate the growth of our clubs.

Minería Virtual will continue investing and executing the phases 2, 3 and 4 described above which requires approximately $ 24,600.00. We would like Dash to support us with the remaining part of the proposed budget to help us take care of infrastructure costas which can be covered with approximately 68 Dash.

Please refer to the attached files to view the details of our budget.

Thanks for your pre-proposal. From what I've gathered from the budgets, most of what you're requesting centers around building out your facility to better facilitate your activities as an organization. Lately, the trends in what MNOs have been voting for has moved away from the speculative/trading/investing side of cryptocurrency and more towards particular use cases, integrations, etc. The emphasis really seems to be about ways people can actually *use* Dash rather than just move it around on markets, and mining Dash is not a very lucrative prospect for the present either due to the proliferation of ASICs. So while Dash is very interested in moving forward in Venezuela, the mining/speculation side of the industry is probably among the lowest of priorities. Keeping that in mind, you'll have to find some way to make this project worthwhile and attractive to the MNOs by enhancing the value it adds to the network. Serving as a hub or place people can come to learn and be educated and onboarded and get support is great in itself and supports our other funded projects in the region, but moving them toward trading and mining is really where Dash needs people at the moment, so if you were seeking funding from the DAO, I would recommend moving your project more in the "customer support" or "community building" direction.

There's really just not much of an incentive for Dash to fund the outfitting of your building with no real guarantee that your club will provide benefit to the network, especially when that benefit is not exclusive to Dash.

I agree with @Arthyron . From the point of view of the real interest of the MNos, the MNo have made it clear that they are interested in organic adoption to facilitate lives by improving their forms of payments.
Now, it is a matter of syntax, this proposal has been very well developed but if it is focused on business education on long and medium term investments, it is a good start.
Personally I have worked with Virtual Mining before they are the most recognized teams currently in Venezuela in terms of cryptocurrency issues. Actually this proposal has a great value since it consolidates a network of TRADING CLUBS around the world where Staking is done with Dash, this can bring very good investors who believe in the development of Evolution and are able to endure long months of waiting while they see how your investment fluctuates in favor of the development of a new generation technological ecosystem.
In simple words. This proposal is great.

But you have to be a little more open to niche markets that are based on investment rather than adoption.
There are very few proposals that favor investment and staking. And this brings as good benefits as a million people using Dash.

Hello Arthyron. Thank you very much for your input. You have a great point. We appreciate your effort in giving us a new perspective, and letting us know about the trends in what MNOs have been voting for. We are looking to use Dash as the main cryptocurrency in our business. Since we are an organization that has been dedicated to building a community by spreading cryptocurrency education in the trading and mining area.

We believe in Dash, and that it is the best cryptocurrency with the most potential and use cases. We especially consider that Dash is perfect for the problems all Venezuelans face. This starts with the average Joe and goes all the way to entrepeneurs and important industries.

We are thinking of giving our proposal a new direction. We would like to establish Dash Clubs across the country, and later on all over Latin America. These clubs will be a space for learning about Dash, and how Dash can increase quality of life.This can be acheived providing the following services:

Dash for Beginners educational course
Dash for Investors course
Dash Business Solutions Conferences
Dash Business Solutions Meetups
Dash Investment Recomendations
Dash Business Solutions Service


Since we have built a large community and have successfully spread cryptocurrency knowledge, we are a great team to do this job for Dash. Mineria Virtual has manages to develop quality relationships with potential investors in Venezuela's capital city Caracas. Therefore, we believe we could help channel a significant amount of support and consolidate real use cases for Dash.

Dash Business Solutions Service would add much value to the Dash Network. When providing this service we will take investors and walk them through every step they must take to make Dash the main payment method. We will plan each phase, and will offer support in executing every step.

We dediced to move our project towards a new horizon where our clubs will help Venezuelans protect their savings, income, capital and investments from the dire economic situation and devaluation this country currently faces. This will be highly benefitial for Dash.

@mineria virtual -- I think your "Dash Clubs" proposal would probably be a much better option if you were intending on seeking funding from the DAO. There are a few existing projects in the space you could observe and with whom you could consult who are doing or have already done similar things. The Dash Embassy DACH project has been very successful as a model and is continuing to do great work: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/...-2018-update-june-new-proposal-q3-2018.38450/ and the BitCoin Embassy out of Atlanta, Georgia, USA is hoping to add Dash to its partnership: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/...ion-in-atlanta-atlanta-bitcoin-embassy.38205/

Those are just some examples of projects already in the space that might be helpful in determining the future of your own project.

I think Mineria Virtual can bring good investors to Dash if they teach to their current clients all the features and benefits Dash is brining to our country. If you need help please reach me and we can study a potential alliance with our organizations: Dash Help, Dash Merchant and Dash Text.

Best,
Alejandro

Thank you so much for your feedback and recommendations! This is very helpful information. We were not aware of these proposals. We have reviewed both, and we believe that we could certainly focus our Dash Clubs in a similar sense here in Venezuela with the existing community that is currently growing.

In the past few months we have started to educate our community through meetups on a small scale level. We are thinking of refocusing our project in the direction of providing education about Dash, how to use Dash, how to implement Dash as a payment method in businesses, and how Dash is the way to have quality of life here in Venezuela. This could be done on a large scale through the establishment of our Dash Clubs.

We feel that people in Venezuela confide in our organization, and we see everyone is very active in our community through social media and participation in our live events.

We will post a new structure of our proposal soon. We would really apprecciate if you checked it out when it gets published.

Thanks for all the support and helpful advice!

-Minería Virtual.

Thanks for your input!! It would be great to talk since we would like to integrate Dash payments to our website, and one of the services we intend to give is the one on one advice on how to include Dash Payments for investors and businesses. Please shoot us an email at [email protected] we would love to hear about your organizations.

This proposal would really intregate more users to DASH community in Venezuela since they will know how to use it and where to expend it. It is a good idea, but I think you should focus more on the benefits to the community nationwide wise.

Good luck.

Hi Johnny! Thanks for your positive feedback. We are currently developing the proposal so this is great to know. We have started our project in Caracas Venezuela. You bring an important point forward, and we will consider this in our proposal development so that our intentions of expanding nationwide are clear.

Thank you.
