    Seems a bit high but most proposals are. I would vote for it for one or two months at first to give you a shot to see how well you do and make sure you can deliver. Just don't go off and submit a 6-12 month proposal or it will not pass.

    Thank you for the insight- we will make sure that this first proposal is short on the monthly basis until we can get the communities full long-term support for what we are working on. There are some other areas of business we are really excited to start executing on. For now, WE will do a two-month proposal- So that we have the chance to mash targets out with the Dash team as far as creative goes. Thank you for your insight. Any other thoughts on how we get this across the board would be great. We want to build a community together. I believe that peer to peer media is also a part of the evolution of marketing and advertising and your support in building the Dash community along with the information associated to personal wealth, family richness and experience are close to my heart. Gracias~

    Regards,
    Tijo-

    Its a good one, out side of the mold.I love personal experience and Chuck was a huge eye opener for me as to why I would want to Endorse Dash on multiple layers.

    Seems like it could be of great value to your subscriber base and Dash. I agree that it should be a 1-2 month proposal to start. Final deliverables should be more specific, but I'm guessing you already knew that!

    I liked your interview with Clif High...you were too easy on Tone Vays though :D:D:D

    Thank you- We can be more specific on some of the larger proposals we are working on- I went simple on deliverables, mostly for the creative freedom to see what I could get done with a round budget. I have been working in the advertising and marketing space for many years.

    Side note- Good talent isnt cheap! But, I have been always been able to bootstrap when necessary.
    I think part of the real final deliverable its about brands and companies connecting with influencers and personalities. This is the way the market will go. Right now youtube demonitzes videos all the time. Real content creation in this space should really be backed and funded by this ecosystem as well. Bitcoin.com and Cointelegraphwon'tt cut it.
    There is lots more room for allies in this media space. The bear family is building that community. Just a side note, But I will make sure we are more concise in the final draft for deliverables and budget spend.

    Also- With Tone, I just want to provide an open platform for ideas. The community decides the true value of these ideas through their own critical thinking, on a more long forum public debate, i would t more than happily argue some of what tone has to say ! haha . Staying friends with the entire community before we go on roasts!

    I'm endorsing you guys cause I believe in the company. People trust me cause I absolutely would never do that! haha . Long term I think Dash its smart for Dash to sponsor media from this space as it gives them the advantage of peer to peer marketing, but don't mistake it. Even just having the Dash Logo up there beside the arcane bear will become incredibly valuable, as I bring value and service to the community at large!!

    Also, Thank you I am very glad to hear you would vote yes on our initiative, I beleieve it will bring other you tubers to the door as well. Its time we took back the control of our own media in this space, and we have the control and intelligence to do so in a peer 2 peer economy .

    I have been aware of the Arcane Bear channel for some time. Obviously Tijo is plugged in, turned on and keenly aware of how crypto will change everything. His audience is a good fit with the Dash product and community. Let's give it a whirl for a month or two and look at the numbers.

    It looks like 30% of the total gets plowed straight into advertising on Facebook and giveaways/contests on the channel. Cool. That should pump up viewership even faster.

    36% goes to labor costs at a rate of approximately $60k per year. Not unreasonable for self employed top notch talent. Accounting for the lack of benefits, this is comparable to an employment salary of less than 40k a year. Again, very reasonable.

    That leaves 33% to replace his Youtube income and make sure he stays viable, even if Youtube cuts him off. Demonetizing youtube videos with libertarian and/or voluntarist viewpoints is getting all too common these days. I would happily poke YouTube in the eye by becoming his exclusive sponsor.

    Now if someone would just go make a decentralized platform like YouTube, without all the censorship hogwash, we could take over the world. You know, even faster....

    First, Thank you for enjoying the show, I am glad you think we are a good fit as well, Giving me the confidence to put it on the Dash Proposal board. Do you think I could get it approved for us to start in January? Or should I think further out, I have been in sales and marketing for many years ;) Very excited that the Dash tribe is into my proposal so far.

    We aimed at it being extremely reasonable and just as you said, these are really attacks for youtube for what they do to the open-minded community. But currently they offer a great platform for streaming, but make it difficult to have a transparent point of view. Our goal is to bring as much quality content to the community as possible, a value and service! As a media personality that will continue to grow, it's smart for me to want to form partnerships that focus on growing the ecosystems as a whole, as it benefits everyone when Dash steps up to the plate to help YouTubers who work in the space.

    I am a huge believer in this new peer 2 peer business model, and I believe that we are on the early footsteps and tralblaze the way it will be done in the future. Brands and Personalities will be the new form of advertising and marketing. We are all leaders in this space and this industry!

    We are half way through December and the voting deadline is 17 days away. If you get overwhelming supportive responses here, you may very well be approved. But if you wanted to absolutely maximize your chances, I would not submit the real proposal in this voting cycle. Instead, I would have a full and robust discussion to get the maximum amount of feedback from the community first. That would mean submitting the real proposal on the first day of the next voting cycle. Just to put in a shameless plug, I recently wrote an article on how to optimize your proposal's chances:

    https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/proposers-skipping-important-steps-why-is-that-eagerness.19354/

    And by all means, bring your pre-proposal discussion to the other two big forums,

    https://www.reddit.com/r/dashpay/

    And the DashNation discord channel, here's an invite:

    https://discordapp.com/invite/9z8zX5j

    It's ok if you just put up a two line blurb and links leading to this forum discussion, so everybody can follow the full conversation here.

    Sounds good, I had joined the Discord channel and was finding my way around, and I made a post in the Reddit-Dash pay section. Will readjust roadmap for launch until after the new year.

    first mover effect is strong with youtube. Chicken and egg problem, not enough viewers, so not enough content, so...not enough viewers.

    Eventually, a critical mass of people will get sick of the baloney that YouTube pulls. Someone should warn them that it's a very very bad idea to make the internet mad. Before Reddit, there was Digg. Digg didn't pay attention to the needs of the users, and one day they just all evaporated and headed over to Reddit.

    I can't wait...

    Good analysis IMO! The more I've thought about this, the more value I see in it, especially after finishing the Chuck Williams interview. Tijo takes a philosophical approach, which is rare and valuable in the cryptospehere.

    Also, re submitting this cycle, it seems like you have overwhelming support (I'm only going anecdotally here, but it seems apparent to me), so I think there's a significant shot you could get approved this cycle since a lot of MNO's seem to do their voting towards the end of the cycle, but go with your gut, ma'dude!

    Sounds great, I wonder what else I should do to the Proposal before sending it in front of the master nodes. Would love to be live in 2018 with Dash! Ill see if a friend can sponsor us for the 5k Dash proposal fee, as I hadn't included that in the proposal yes.

    I would post your socalblade profile https://socialblade.com/youtube/channel/UCPpo9YgJsEwoN0nB-VTF7Tw

    250,000 views in the last month, i think the proposal is a deal considering that.

    Only issue might be the value increase of dash, depending on how many months the proposal is for. Traditionally people don't like long proposals as the value goes up and the person multiples of the original price. It helps to be clear if the money dash gets used by a 30 day rolling average in usd monthly etc, so a 3 month proposal could last 6 months. If your audience grows than technically we get more out of it depending on the structure. Unfortunately this is still a big experiment and it's a bit flustering to consider all the possibilities.

    Not sure how you can control the youtube ads on your own videos unless you targeted yourself somehow via their ad software. If you demonetize the videos you will not show up in search results as much.

    Anyway, I hope this passes. You are one of the few people i look forward to meeting at one of the events!

    Yes Great idea, I could attach a 30-day rolling average clause which means if it ends up being worth 2x more- I focus the rest of the accumulated Dash in the advertising area. My audience will grow dramatically once we put these last few pieces together. You might be right about the youtube ads if I remove them, do I not show up in the rank an search as well? If not all the Begin/ends of videos would have a Dash Endorsed by the Arcane bear and In partnership with!
    Boom

    Going to see if I can get it up on the master node voting area in the next few days. I really look forward to meeting you at an event as well brother. Should be opening up my travel plans over the net few months to send me to more conferences.

    I will add the Socialblade link to the proposal and the 30-day moving average expenditure correction.

    I like this proposal. You have been someone recognized in Social Media and that's always nice for Dash, it would make our cryptocurrency to grow faster.

    I also would recommend you to try with 2 months first, and then show results. At the end as every member of the community, we need to take care about the limited budget to proposals, but I think yours can be funded. Don't foget about the reimbursement of the proposal fee, put it on your official budgetz

    Congrats! Hope this pass.
