    Dash Force Meetup & Presentation Program:

    These contest are meant to incentivize worldwide Dash meetups and presentations all in one place. This will help to avoid overwhelming the Dash budget proposal system and masternode owners with multiple meetup proposals every month. It will also help to standardize best practices so each Dash meetup is the best it can be.





    Basic Monthly Meetup Program: .5 Dash


    If you want to earn some Dash for hosting a small monthly meetup it’s easy. All you need is yourself and at least two people.

    1. Host the meetup and give away $10 in Dash to everyone (up to 4 people) who attends and installs a Dash wallet. Post 2-3 pictures showing yourself and at least 2 other people with a $10 transaction. These must be different people every time you host the meetup.

    2. Provide us with the link to where you posted it at https://discoverdash.com/ and meetup.com, set this up before the meetup. You will need to enter the location and time/day of the Monthly meetup and a brief description. List meetups under the "Events Pro" tab.



    Wildcard Meetup: Up to 2 Dash

    If you host any kind of meetup that turns out great then please share and you will be rewarded. If you can’t yet handle a larger meetup of more than 15 people then this is the meetup for you. If you don’t wish to advertise the meetup on meetup.com and/or Facebook you can start with this meetup program. Exact funding is not guaranteed but I always help people out who try new and different things, just don’t give away a lot of money expecting reimbursement. Please contact me first before doing something like that! Keep any giveaways to under $5 per person.


    1. Please provide a link to where you posted your event at https://discoverdash.com/ and, set this up before the meetup. You will need to enter the location and time/day of the weekly or Monthly meetup and a brief description.
    List meetups under the "Events Pro" tab on DiscoverDash.

    2. Post photos

    3. Any other info you think is important



    Original Meetup program: 1 Dash

    For the Original Meetup program Dash Force will be offering 1 or more Dash to the meetups who complete the task listed below.


    1. Organize a 5+ person meetup and give everyone who sets up a wallet $10 dollars in free DASH. Purchase $30+ in refreshments or merchandise (coffee and donuts, pizza and pop, mugs and merch). Then simply have the attendees purchase the refreshments/merch from you using their free Dash. Undercharge people for refreshments or merchandise so everyone goes home with some Dash.
    Provide pictures of the refreshments table. Provide receipt for refreshments.


    2. The first part of the meetup should cover how to work their wallet and how to back it up etc. After that, give them your Dash elevator speech and take questions or give a 45 min presentation with questions etc. Tell the 10k BTC pizza story.
    Give a brief description of what you did.


    3. Take a group picture of the people with their new wallets and refreshments. Make sure we can see at least 5 people with Dash wallets. If you are planning on have more than 20 attend please contact me first.
    Post pictures of 5 people with their wallets and refreshments. List the total number of attendees.
    These must be new/different people every time you host the meetup.

    4. Provide us with the link to where you posted the event/meetup at https://discoverdash.com/ and meetup.com and/or Facebook. You will need to enter the location and time/day of the weekly/Monthly meetup and a brief description.
    Post Discover Dash & Meetup.com Link and/or Facebook


    5. Last requirement, this one is not optional and must be strictly enforced for everyone's safety & well being, if you fail to follow the instructions exactly you will be disqualified. The last requirement is.... Have Fun!

    Here is an example of what we are looking for....

    The Bitcoin Pizza Purchase That's Worth (Over!) $7 Million Today
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericmac...ase-thats-worth-7-million-today/#415d546c6449
    =======================================================================


    All entries will need to be submitted no later than 24 hours before the end of the proposal cycle. Winners will be chosen and prizes given no later than one week after the proposal cycle ends.
    The next cycle ends (2017-09-03 13:23, block 731104)



    Dash Wallets
    https://www.dash.org/downloads/

    USD Price converter
    http://dash.price.exchange/

    *Larger presentations will be eligible for full Dash Force funding, up to 4 Dash a month. Please contact me first for Details on Best practices. With our current budget we will be able to support up to 3 large monthly presentations.



    After speaking with joe moraca (Head Dash Force News proposal reviewer and researcher) on the current state of Dash's offline, Brick and mortar POS system solutions I have decided to pause the merchant adoption part of the meetups and put my new merchant adoption program on hold until there is a solid POS solution. We will try again after new solutions that are in the works are released and reviewed and any bugs fixed. We will also be making a how to guide and video series for merchants to make things easier for them as well.

    I'm afraid we are moving too fast and not having a proper POS solution could turn merchants off to Dash as it is not easy to do now and is overly complicated. We can't wait for Evolution to solve this issue (which it eventually will) so hopefully in the next month or so new POS solutions will be released and we can continue.
    Advanced Merchant Adoption meetup program: 2 Dash - Paused

    For this meetup you will need to organize at least a 5 person meetup plus yourself. Then, find a business willing to accept Dash and host your meetup there. Give away $10 in Dash to the first 30 people who attend and set's up a Dash wallet, then encouraged them to enjoy themselves and spend some of that Dash at the business you just on-boarded.

    If you have under 10 people attend you will win 2 Dash.
    If you get 10 or more people to attend you will receive a .50 Dash bonus!
    If you have more than 20 attend you will receive a 1 Dash bonus! So 3 Dash for events with more than 20 people in attendance.


    What we will need before sending you the Dash reward.
    1. You will need to provide us with the link to where you posted your event at https://discoverdash.com/ and meetup.com and/or Facebook, set this up before the meetup. You will need to enter the location and time/day of the weekly/Monthly meetup and a brief description. List meetups under the "Events Pro" tab and businesses under the proper category.

    2. We will need to see pictures/screenshots of the Dash wallets with the $10 transaction.
    Examples: http://imgur.com/8OR1BaW And http://imgur.com/PjpROwG

    3. Lastly, a picture of the business and a group picture showing the total number of members in attendance all holding up their phones... and smiling :D.

    You can host this meetup once a month or once a week. Each time (week or month) you will be required to find a new business to accept Dash and host your meetup there.
    *Limit: 4 Meetups per month per group, once a week
    *I will be starting a separate contest soon for people who can't do a meetup and just want to add new merchants
    *Please try and keep all your info in one post and use the bullet point checklist format when submitting your entry....

    An exchange is not a wallet! most people who have been around long enough have lost funds at a exchange (me included :(), so please, please, please... never store in an exchange and take out the funds as soon as possible. I understand that if you are a trader you need to have funds in exchanges, but at least know the risk you are taking.

    As for your question, I can't speak for @mastermined, but I imagine that any real wallet is ok. You have a lot at dash.org/downloads.

    Btw, @mastermined, great initiative. I encourage everyone to try. I have talked about Dash in a few meetups and it is a super fun experience.

    I would say the hashengineering wallet for android just because it has instasend/instantX. Not sure about an IOS wallet. There is info at the link fernando posted about how to install the IOS wallet. I will post that link in the description.

    IMO Installing Mobile Dash wallets isn't good idea for the people who just got known about Dash for the first time (it isn't Dash's strong point at the moment and can spoil whole presentation, very first impression):
    1. We don't have working wallet for iOS.
    2. To install on Android you have to remember password for GooglePlay and most people don't go to presentation with it.

    Let's wait for Evolution for this requirement.

    Not everyone has to install the wallet and get free Dash, just 5 people. Without that requirement this meetup contest does not work. People can still have meetups but Dash does not need to pay $100 to all of them. If you want to win ~$100 you will have to jump through some hoops or start small and work your way up.

    1. The IOS wallet issues is a bit of a mess but we keep hearing that there is good news coming on that front via jaxx.

    2. On my phones you just click on the googleplay app and it takes you to the store. Maybe I put in a password once when i first used it but i never had to enter a password since.

    Looks like y'all had a great meetup. I Can't tell if all the requirements were met but it looks like most of them were. If we don't have 3 other meetups that meet all the requirements by the end of the budget cycle I will give y'all the 7.75 prize. Great job!

    Next time please make sure you complete all the requirements if you want to win the contest. If not all the requirements are met you may still be eligible for smaller DashForce Tips.

    ok) thank you!
    some the part of game you can see: http://explorer.dash.org/a/XqRpTKgRjL
    i think that speaker must have 1-2 friends for support, good wi-fi, guest must have PC with them, level for use internet/pc/programs and [most important] They have to believe you. Many are afraid to install any software (wallet) on their computer))))

    I will be having a Dash Crypto Meeting tonight: meetup.com/DashCryptoGroup in Suwanee, GA

    I expect about 15 people. Getting the people to have five dash wallets on site is going to be challenging. I expect most will be newbies (I'm a fairly newbie to Dash myself). So I think it is reasonable for me to give the challenge out so they can:
    1. Go home and install the Dash-QT Wallet on their computer and then
    2. Send me an email with their Dash Receive code (which I will give you as evidence of the transaction) and
    3. I will send them dash that way with my Dash Receive code (which I will give you) for them to send me a portion back.
    4. I will list out each of the addresses for each person with the email they sent me and the transactions going back and forth.

    This will take longer and I probably won't win the contest but this is the only way I can see of getting this done without an iOS wallet (I don't have Android at this time either). I guess that can be a subject of another Dash Crypto Group meeting: Dash Mobile Wallets

    I had my Dash Crypto Group meeting last night and all went well! We had 11 people show up and 8 of them had Dash wallets (to my surprise!). So I served food, I have the five transactions that went back and forth. I took a video of the meeting which I plan on posting over the weekend (we went over two hours and I'm going to edit down to the interesting parts). I think I most people would rather not have their picture posted. I know you want pictures and I'm going to go into my video and see if I can get people that my camera caught. But I would rather keep these pictures off-line since most people probably don't want their picture posted publically.

    Please let me know whatever else I need to do. I do have all of the dash transactions in my Dash QT wallet that shows the majority of transactions occuring during our meeting and one occurred at 12AM when he got home he sent the dash back to me :)

    Here is an address you can send me the Dash reward to this address: XxdsYtv2EFvuuAh9zhpHH1waiBysRqZZGz [WooHoo]

    Ps. I plan on having a monthly meeting of the Dash Crypto Group in Suwanee, GA on the third Tuesday from 6-8PM every month. See the website for details: meetup.com/DashCryptoGroup any and all are welcome! We have a GREAT group. I am quite excited about it.

    i'll try and check all the info you guys posted tonight or tomorrow.

    i'm making a few changes to the meetup contest for the next cycle. one will be that meetup entries will need to be submitted no later than 24 hours before the end of the proposal cycle. winners will be awarded the prizes one week after the new prop cycle starts.
    also, i will be numbering the bullet point and contestants will need to use that format so i can easily check that each requirement has been met. requirements will be strictly enforced next cycle if you want to win the full contest amount. for those who don't meet all the requirements smaller tips will be given.

    So the next meeting contest is going to have the same rules ... spread dash out to five participants ... take pics ... provide food ... etc. ? Also since this is tied to the budget proposal process what's a good link to track when that happens? And I assume you will just post everything to this thread about the contests to keep up with that (I'm tracking this tread). Thanks.

    I am going to update the 2nd cycle prize to an even $100 dollars in Dash. We will also give away extra Dash on top of that for people who come up with new ideas that we incorporate into the contest, so if you fulfill all the requirements and come up with new creative ideas you can win more than $100 in Dash!

    Hello! We spent the second mitap in Astana. Here is the link:

    The total number of participants - 18.
    Played 10 paper wallets for 0.2 dash.
    Purses installed on your mobile phone and uploaded dash.
    Imitated store dash.
    In the shop, participants made their first purchases in the dash.
    About buy pizza for 10k told :)

    I am an iPhone user and it is literally impossible to send Dash to anyone or to even be allowed to see how much Dash I have. But could just use my Laptop. And to my sights I feel like the budget should be expanded, and more then just 3 people competing to win a amount of money everyone should get if they follow the rules. Not many people would want to host another Meetup after spending $40 and not getting reimbursed for it.

    I don't have a problem with the contest or the rules as they are currently setup. Unfortunately I had a few people cancel and all I had were 3 people come to the meeting. So yes I spent $50 on food (actually $70 but they only ate 1/3 of what I bought) so I don't have a problem with that myself. I didn't have enough people to compete. That is how it goes.

    I think the current setup is a good one in my opinion.

    I can't help with the iphone issues but it is being worked on, hopefully there will be an announcement soon. Until then there are other iphone options listed above. Not sure if they are updated and work with the new release yet though. I'll have to ask as i don't have a iphone.

    So far this month only one other person has entered. The prize for winning is $120. The most it should cost you is $20-25. You buy the refreshments $20, then give out $20 in free Dash, then the people buy the refreshments back. So all you are out is $20, plus you want to send people home with a little dash in their new wallet so maybe like a total of $25 you are out. You would win about $100 total after expenses.
    Since we don't have many participants yet and have a little extra this month i will do like you said and give the prize to the first 5 people this month. Thanks for your input.

    We did have a meeting (you can see the people who signed up for it on the web site). I did take a few pictures. I don't know if you want to consider my meeting for the contest since only three people came. https://www.meetup.com/DashCryptoGroup/events/237253217/ (Ken & Vikas said they could not attend at the last moment).

    Even if you were not able to do all the requirements you are still eligible for smaller tips. Just give the info on what you did (pictures etc) and i will send you some Dash at the end of the cycle! Thanks for trying.

    *If not all the requirements are met you may still be eligible for smaller DashForce Tips.
