Hi everyone,

It is a great pleasure to be posting this thread.

We reach out from an international YouTube awarding ceremony organization, taking place in Spain yearly.
The name of it is Play Awards, and it´s a sort of "Oscars" of Spanish speaking YouTube stars. Please take a minute to google it.
Last year´s event went trending topic on twitter with 73 MILLION impressions!! We can document that and some other analytics.
We are organizing the next awarding ceremony, which will take place in May, and we would like to submit a proposal.

We think would be very beneficial for Dash to reach mainstream attention, so we have come up with a strategy that could certainly be aligned with this common goal we share.

Proposal detailed
We would like to set up an international contest to our audience, through our social network.
The winner of this lottery would win a two person ticket to attend the event and meet their favorite YouTube celebrities in real life, as well as 2,5 Dashes each to spend in their adventure.

We could easily reach a couple million of participants.
In order to be eligible for the lottery, participants would need to:

1 - Create a Dash Wallet
2 - Knowing what Dash is (they have to be able to respond it quickly or they would be pulled out)
3 - Share on their social network "DashxPlayawards" (augmenting exponentially the reach of the action)

We very strongly think this could trigger a trend in between the million of YouTubers fans, since it´s not an open public event and it´s the dream of a lot of young people.

Budget for the project
175 Dashes

The budget would be distributed to:

1 - Fund the winners attendance to the event (flights, hotels, etc)
2 - The stuff that will be in charge of the contest, organizing the trips, logistics, etc.
3 - Adds to reach the maximum amount of people.
4 - Pay some of the cost of the YouTube celebrities we will use their names to empower the contest.
5 - Participate in a small fraction on the fund of the event.

We are invested in Dash and we want the best for the community, so even if the proposal does not get approved, we will still do our best within our means to promote it during the event, in all the ways we can.

Best regards
Play Awards team

How do you fit into the Play Awards?
When is the next event?
How are you tied in, or are you representing the organization directly?
I think people want to confirm some type of verification prior to voting.

I'd think it would be much better if the evolution wallet was out for the widespread engagement.

Hey there, my name is Alberto, and I´m managing part of the project this year, but we are a team of about eight people and we would all like to see the idea succeed. The event will take place the 25th of May, we would like to get the contest done as soon as posible so we can really get the most out of it.

We understand about the verification process, I think an easy way would be to email the play awards website, or any of the social media pages, so we can respond from there, not a problem at all.

The evolution wallet idea sounds great, we are totally ok with it.

Feel free to ask or suggest anything!

Thanks for links! since I´m a new member I wasn´t allowed to post any links, so glad you did it for us!! ;)
You are welcome. :)

Honestly, I think that this sort of people should not become a target group for Dash.
Those people are not meant to be Dash users.

But dont worry, my opinion does not count, cause I am not a masternode.

Thanks for the comment Demo, this "sort of people" as you refer to them, are common persons with all kinds of diverse interests, maybe the videos do not show the most accurate picture, but I think we better be flexible when it comes to massive adoption, however, I appreciate your concerns

Check now, are enabled.

They were disabled because a strategy matter of the last weeks i guess!
Interesting.
What kind of strategy is this, to hide and to reveal the comments and the ratings accordingly?
I am asking you, because if you convince me that your strategy is correct to hide and to reveal the ratings and the comments according to whatever circumstances, I may do the same in my account here.

Hey Demo, the past months has been a lot of speculation on what the date of the event will be and what city and so on. And the youtube comments where the place where this was all taking place!! We actually have made the date public anywhere else ;)

I see. Anyway , although I think that your viewers are not the correct target group for Dash, I wish you good luck in you goal of convincing the masternodes to vote for you.

The Masternodes are not so smart, some of them are even less smart than the people you deal with. But beware not to piss off some key persons, some masternode operators that own more than 100 masternodes. What it is important here in DASH is to get the favor of these persons. Dash is highly centralized, and it is governed by 10-20 people. And dont take very seriously those having the masternode badge here in the forum, they may have only one masternode, which worths almost nothing when voting.

Could you elaborate more on what exactly the process would be for this? How would people be expected to demonstrate that they have created a dash wallet, or know what dash is, and what would they be sharing on social network?

This one does sound interesting, it's under the same line of thought that giving away Dash helps drive exposure and education, just taken to a different level. Possibly good bang for the buck because this event appears to be very popular already and may have a high number of entrants. And demo, the target group of people for Dash is everybody.

Yes of course Dash is for everybody, but you have to go step by step. First target the technology people, then those who can read, then the unlettered. First target the young, then the old. First target the smart, then the low intelligence. Otherwise, if you do not concentrate to a target group, you may target the unlettered low intelligence old people, and in that case I serioulsy doubt you will manage to evolve as a cryptocurrency. How to explain to an unletter old man what is a number and what is a letter? If he cannot understand the numbers and the letters, how can he understand the cryptocurrency concept? This is an extreme example of course, but it is for the sake of the argument. You should excpect a level of understanding when you introduce a concept, whatever this concept may be.

Hey Troy thanks for your comment. Sure I elaborate the process.

We would create an email, (e.g. [email protected]) and participants will need to send us an email with their dash wallet address and their phone number, and their social network

We would specify that the winner will get a call from us and will be asked to explane the basics of dash to see if he/she knows what dash really is, and since it´s on their own interest to win, we bet 99 will do their homework.

Equally, before making this phone call, we will check that they have shared it on their social network.

Is very common to see lotteries and contest in the "YouTubeSphere", and participants show super engagement with this kind of things fortunately.

Please let us know if you have any suggestion though!

Best

I had similar questions. Sounds like a good idea if there is a way to properly verify that they have installed a wallet and shared on social media. Edit: just read the response. Seems like a lot of work to personally call every entrant to the contest?

I think your proposal could bring Dash a lot of new Dash-educated users and attention in Europe for a reasonable price. Now that BitPanda.com accepts European deposits via credit card as of this week, I think the timing is very good.

However, first I personally would need to see verifiable proof that you are indeed an authentic representative of the Play Awards to know that we aren't being conned. I'd also like to know your exact position, what company you officially work for, your business's contact phone number etc. You could private message me this over the forum if you'd rather some of it not be public.

I would also like to know your estimates on how many viewers your awards have gotten in each of the past years both live and on YouTube over time. Also, in your estimation, how many people will watch this year live and how many over time? In your estimation, how many will hear about this Dash-sponsored competition beforehand and want to participate? How many users do you think will actually get through creating a Dash wallet, learning about Dash, posting about Dash on social media (which is a requirement of your competition I particularly like and I'm sure other MN's do) and signing up for your competition?

Will you mention the Dash sponsorship or display a Dash logo more than once during the actual awards show so that Dash's affiliation will be noted even in the post-show viewings?

Finally I'd like you to be strict about enforcing the rules of the competition. If they don't actually do what the requirements are, you must let them know beforehand that you won't be giving them any breaks if they don't fulfill the requirements.

Thanks

Have you corresponded with @babygiraffe or anyone else from the Dash core team?

I don't think I will be able to vote on a proposal of this scale with out at least an endorsement from the core team and verification that Dash will be presented the right way. I would prefer that you use use Dash media/info that has already been created by knowledgeable community members.


EDIT: Please join us in the #proposals channel in slack https://dash-nation-invite.herokuapp.com/ as there is much to be discussed and not much time before this voting round is over.

IMPORTANT: I have just personally verified beyond any reasonable doubt that this is an authentic representative of the Play Awards. I emailed their official website email [email protected] and asked them to contact me via Skype which they did (there was no other way for them to know my Skype). I had a video call with Max Olivier the founder of the Play Awards. He not only verified his identity with his license and showed me one of the upcoming gold trophies but most importantly for you to see he also has posted a Dash logo on the top right corner of The Play Awards' official YouTube channel here as a way to verify it's them behind the proposal https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClIGGpV0r4YP8DLstALeSSQ

Max told me he has a significant amount of his savings in Dash and is doing this much more to help Dash than he is for the benefit to his show. He said he would be charging double or triple to any other advertiser. I personally feel confident he is genuine in his desire to help Dash and that this is a good use of our funds given that we will have the potential to reach all over Spain and Latin America, and this is basically the Oscars for Spanish Youtube content creators. Even though this will only be the second year of their show, in their first year they have had almost 2 million views on their Youtube Channel since the show (proof seen here from their account at the top left https://gyazo.com/75567f8b0ba987a052d4ecd862c353cf 1,778,121 views) and if you include people who pirated clips of their show on YouTube, they have around 10 million views. So it's pretty safe to say there will be at least 1-10 million+ views of the show if nothing goes wrong. They will be broadcasted nationally on the Antena 3 Digital Platform and throughout the world and Latin America through YouTube rebroadcasters live. Max has promised to put clips of the Dash Contest winners on their official YouTube channel and to mention and or display a Dash banner at least once during the actual show.

Given that we only have 24 hours to garner enough votes, Max has told me since the event is in May, he can still make the proposal next month but that he would like to at least gauge the support beforehand so please do vote yes even if it is unlikely to pass so that Max feels confident it will pass next month.

It's also important to note, In order for people to enroll in this Dash contest to attend the Play Awards for free which will be a red-carpet event with celebrities in the center of Madrid, contestants need to create a Dash Wallet, know what Dash is, and share on their social media that the cryptocurrency Dash is inviting them to attend the Play Awards. I think this expense is much more valuable than typical advertising because the contestants actually need to actively learn about and be ready to use Dash in order to enroll rather than just see our logo or hear about us.

Hi everyone,

We are overwhelmed by these last couple of days rise up of interest on the proposal. We would like to thank paragon for having been so active in the community and taking a considerable amount of time to evaluate this project and let others know about it.

We are 10 hours away from the deadline, and about 30 "yes" votes away. We would like to invite everyone who abstained, to reconsider their decision.

Here it is: https://www.dashcentral.org/p/PLAY-AWARDS-DASH

We are going to be following it very closely, and giving immediate responses to any question, doubt, or suggestion, so please do not be afraid to ask.

Thank you for your participation.

Play Awards team

Good question. Looks like dash was scammed / organisers had no balls to keep us posted.

"The organization also points out that no youtuber, candidate or not, has been asked to promote the event or sponsors, and that the project was "deficit" so far."

This is more the reason for dash's HR partner to vet the people behind proposals that are over a certain value.

There were some posts about the dash lottery on their Facebook page earlier this month https://m.facebook.com/theplayawards/

However no updates from OP and apparently underwhelming performance, naturally with the event being cancelled lol
