Dash Argentina First Dash-Friendly City (Educational Conferences + reach over 5000 persons)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Updates:
Following the advice we have received, these are the updates we believe will improve our proposal
1 - (March, 20th. 2018) - Media Impact (Reach +5000 persons)
2 - (March, 21st. 2018) - Dash community alliances
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Dash Community,

Our main but not sole objective is to introduce Dash to the Argentine market. Argentina is a country that lacks sufficient knowledge as far as Cryptocurrencies are concerned, and where these currencies, particularly the Bitcoin, are referred to in a speculative way. Thus, there is an advantageous and favorable environment for the arrival of Dash to our country as an alternative payment method.

Our proposal is to make Rio Tercero, a city with a population of 46 000 people, the “First Dash-friendly pilot city”, based on a thorough training to traders, businessmen, entrepreneurs and the extended community.


Our plan is to organize two events per month (a conference and a workshop) for a period of three months, in which participants will get Dash marketing material and credit to foster the use of Dash as an alternative payment method. We estimate an audience of 400 participants per month, a total of 1200 participants in the entire period.




Conferences will deal with Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, Dash Digital Money, focusing further on topics such as DAO, Masternodes and Dash mining.

During workshops, participants will be able to experiment and naturalize the use of paper wallets, mobile wallets and exchange, providing an open platform for debate among participants on how to spread the use of Dash as an alternative payment method in daily commerce.


Conferences


Workshops


Event location

Activities will be held at the Convention Center of the Howard Johnson Piedras Moras Hotel, in Rio Tercero.

The 4-star international Howard Johnson Piedras Moras Hotel has the highest and most exclusive convention center in the region. It is just a few minutes away from the business center of Rio Tercero, which makes it the best place to develop corporate activities. (http://www.hjpiedrasmoras.com.ar/)

Media impact

We will make a media tour over about 15 FM Radios located in Río Tercero introducing Dash to the people inviting them to join us in each
Conference and Workshop driven by us. Also we plan to post a column during the previous week of each event in "Diario Río Tercero" - Daily Digital Newspapper, shared using whatsapp to almost 2500 subscribers. We are in touch and negotiating with the most important regional Weekly Tribuna Digital newspapper, to make the chronicles of each event. In TV sector, Río Tercero has two TV channels and we are in talks to insert a dialy tv spot with three news about cryptocurrencies in prime time.
This strategy allows us to confirm that more than 5000 persons will be under "DASH EFFECT" and will be de begining the most important phase of comunication , that is to impose the topic will be DASH and Cryptocurrencies.

Why Argentina needs Dash and Dash needs Argentina

Argentina is one of the two great South American economic powers, together with Brazil, and is going through a defining moment: with a population of 45 million people and a totally unstable currency, Argentinians are eager to look for new forms of investment, alternative payment and saving methods. So, this is the right time for Dash to present itself as a solution to financial problems with a great potential to prevail as an alternative payment system in Argentina.

The work being done

For the past few months, we have organized small Meetups with Dash wallet openings, events on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, promotion in local media, and we have done our best within our limited budget. These activities have allowed us to add a significant number of followers interested in Dash and its proposal as an alternative payment method. This has been possible partly due to our own funding and the invaluable funding received from our appreciated collaborator "JZA", principal mentor of the DASH GLOBAL proposal and member of the Dash Community of Mexico, to whom we want to thank for the support provided.

This whole experience has helped us to consolidate knowledge and to position ourselves as local Dash referents; a reputation that we hope will increase in cooperation with this project.

Likewise, we want to thank Wilmar Toro for his support for our Community of Dash News in Spanish, Eugenia Alcala from Dash Caracas Community, who motivated us with her tireless work in her country, and Alejandro Echeverria, the person in charge of Dash Help Venezuela, for his continuous guidance and advice.

MONTHLY BUDGET


Reserve in case of DASH volatility 20%


Dash community alliances
  • Eugenia Alcalá (DashCSS);
    Coordinate with local Venezuelan community to let know DASH is available to repatriate fund to their families that were left living in Venezuela.

  • Dash Help Venezuela (Alejandro Echeverria)
    They will provide us, with help desk support for local community

  • Jza (Dashglobal - Mexico);
    Support and mentor for DASH massification.

  • Wilmar Toro (Dash Force News - Español);
    Re publish William Toro`s articles in our local site to promote DASH news. Provide William with information related activities that are being held in Argentina for Dash diffusion.

  • Plus1Radio Project (Discord user katsupi#4601 - Russia).

You are aligning with the right people to help you make this a success. I would very likely vote yes on this proposal. I suggest you strengthen it with a video that presents your team to the Dash community. Saludos desde Colombia! Espero atender uno de tus eventos!

I think it's great that you're pushing for adoption and awareness and laying foundations in Argentina. If Dash's efforts are successful in the current pushes in Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and elsewhere, we'll need teams already in place like yours to expand elsewhere. The budget is very reasonable for two conferences, and you all seem like professionals, sounds like a great proposal, in my opinion. I second @ec1warc1 in that a video or some graphics introducing your team and maybe talking a little bit more about why you want to bring Dash in particular to a greater standing in Argentina would go a long way to making your proposal interesting to other MNOs.

Why not create an events for Cordoba, Rosario and Buenos Aires?
First of all, we would like to thank you for your fast feedback.

Let us tell you something about Rio Tercero, It's located in the center of Cordoba province and it's really influent to many others cities around it. This is a neuralgic city that connects every surronding cities around. It's most important incomes belongs to agricultural bussines and chemical industry. Rio Tercero also recieve an important amount of turism and it's known as the Sport National City.

About this pre proposal, our main idea is to implement DASH with certain amount of people to contain any needs and develope the first "Dash friendly city" as a pilot to implement it in any city with small or large population, even outside our country and as a reference for other community leaders.

In a mid term we plan to enlarge the community in Argentina with presence in the main capital cities of the country like Buenos Aires, Rosario, Córdoba and Mendoza with the expertice and knowlege to have developed the First Dash Friendly City ever.

As not all the team members lives in Rio Tercero, we are planning to meet this days to produce all the media stuff needed to complete this pre proposal, as well to let you know each member of our DASH TASK FORCE.

Dear Arthyron,

Thanks for yout support, as we already told to @ec1warc1, as we are not living in the same city, we are planing to meet this days to produce a video, photos and some other content materials.

Based on Venezuela's experience and Eugenia (DashCSS), Alejandro (Dash Help Venezuela) and Jza (Dashglobal) support we believe that Dash could spread all over Argentina with enought effort, time and dedication. Qualities that we own.

By the way, we would like to invite you to visit our website with information about Meetups we already had. https://www.dashar.org

Great idea, love to see move of these types of proposals coming forward. Focusing on one geographic area will allow crypto to be used as a currency instead of a store of value.

Dear @DavidHay

Thanks for your support, always is good to know that our proposal is fully understood.
DASH has all the elements to become into an alternative payment here in Argentina, even more with DASH Evolution thinking about the increasing transaction volume per second, the hard work in UI and the unlimited support of the community.

Argentina seems like a natural fit for Dash overall. Is there any reasoning behind why this particular city though? Population of 46,000 seems small (which might be a good thing, but curious to hear why).

Dear @nrpetty

Our prime goal is to get a DASH firendly city, in particular the city population of Rio Tercero allow us to cover all their needs in a prudent time frame.

That way we plan to work totally in person, visitng stores, companies, having meetings with entrepreneurs event visiting schools because we recognize that Dash is the future and youth is the future also, as they are early technology adopters this will let DASH to grow faster.

The conferences are meant to cover from guvernamental representatives, bussinessmen , traders, entrepreneurs and extended community.

Reaching this first goal will let us focus the second phase of our argentinean project and implement it on biggest cities like Córdoba, Rosario, Buenos Aires, Mendoza and more others.

Argentina is one of the most active countries in the cryptocurrency market and I think it represents a great opportunity for DASH. In addition to that they are advising and preparing themselves by the hand of people who already know how to make these events.
I think it's an excellent proposal and I wish you all the best.
A big greeting from Guayana, Venezuela.

Hi guys, great proposal. I believe that one of the main objectives of Dash is that the community itself promotes this type of event to bring its benefits to the whole world in a natural and organic way, in this sense and with very similar objectives to you we have created Dash Guayana Venezuela for promote conferences and informational events. Also, we have the same alliances of Dash Caracas and Dash Help Venezuela, so we put ourselves in order for any exchange of ideas or something that you need. Greetings and much success.

@Ezio Rojas; We also think Dash has a huge opportunity in Argentina to be developed. Argentina people has Crypto-hunger and is willing to get alternative ways of payments.

Ezio, thank you very much for taking your time in reading and understanding our proposal.

Hoping in a future we can meet or visit us to coordinate activities together.

@CarlosTrujillo; Thank you very much for your comments, we are all aligned with the prominent future of dash.

After reading your proposal we find out that we really share similar objectives and it will be great to exchange experience during the evolution of our projects.

Dash Argentina is doing an amazing work there, very committed people. They are spreading dash' knowledge in several places over the country, also bringing local merchants to accept Dash in their business.

This proposal will help to increase Dash presence in South America. Bitcoin has been in Argentina good enough time.... This is the Dash' time!!

Besides, the most interesting thing of this proposal is that they want to convert a little city in the first Dash-friendly city in Argentina! This will a very great experience and by what they have already done, I think they will achieve this goal in less than we think.
