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. Please contact @aarellanes here or on slack with any questions.

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. I have also 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, 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.
