    Summary Video



    Description and Goal Statement:

    Cryptocurrencies are not used frequently in Middle east, People just have small ideas about these type of currencies, but they have never thought about using it, even though people in this area would start for sure using it if they find somebody who show them the importance of using cryptocurrencies, especially the public we focus on which are University students in general and computer sciences world (Professors , Engineers , students…) in particular because they are the category of people they may use Cryptocurrencies.

    Why are these kinds of people ones who may use Cryptocurrencies ?

    (A) the people in this field are more used to internet and have no fair of using their money in the Web.
    (B) they would understand the use of it faster than normal people.
    (C) due to statistics, Cryptocurrencies are used more by Freelancers and Programmers.
    So we envisioned to hold conferences in many different parts in the Middle East, as we did as an experiment in our home Country Tunisia. But we are sure that this work would be more efficient in the middle east than in north Africa, and this is due to the development of middle east countries. In these countries people have so much money that they would be highly interested on investing it into Dash money.

    Our conferences will take place in almost all important universities and technologic schools of the Middle east.
    We will make much advertisement to bring people to assist to our conferences. Each Conference will host around 200 people. At the final we can be in an attendance of 2000 people in the total of the 5 (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrein, Oman) and this seems to be a very good beginning, because what we are projecting in the future is much greater. Finally these events will let people to know the advantages of getting Dash and what good effect will that bring to themselves. We are going to generate content and post it on the internet and social media, and that will increase the number of interested people about DASH.

    What we have done ?

    We have organized ( two conferences and one meetup ) in our Country, we hosted an attendance of 160 + 130 people in two universities. We presented a show about DASH and its benefits showing the growing graph of DASH and it can change your business investment.

    Why the Middle East ?

    As you know the middle east is one of the richest regions of the world especially the countries we will work on. So there is going to be more chances for Middle east
    people to get DASH than other people of the world.

    Also The Middle East currently ranks fourth globally in terms of its cross-border global investment activity. It means that they tend to invest their money outside of their country. So they would prefer to transfer their money via Cryptocurrencies than via normal currencies.

    “In the United Arab Emirates and other middle east countries, the demand to trade and issue digital assets has grown exponentially with the phenomenal surge in valuation of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and the rapid evolution of blockchain technology,” said ArabianChain founder and CEO Mohammed Alsehli. “The regional market is ripe and hungry for a user-friendly platform that makes it possible for them to buy and sell in a secure environment.”

    Speaking to media on the sidelines of the UNLOCK blockchain forum in Dubai on Monday, Alsehli said that ArabianChain “is working on a couple of options to allow uninterrupted cash deposits into the system”, in addition to allowing the peer-to-peer trading of cryptocurrencies.

    “This hopefully will be completed in two weeks,” he said. “With that, we’ll have the full platform running at full capacity with everyone doing their trading of their preferred cryptocurrencies.”
    All this represents an opportunity for Dash (specially Dash Evolution), to become widely used by people in this area residing both in and out of the country.


    Our steps :


    • The first step consists on preparing all what we are going to do.
    • Buy the tickets of the plane and hotel reservation.
    • Contact the universities to have the authorizations to organize the conferences.
    • By the same time the hardware manager will be buying all the material we need.
    • The Website and social media pages will be founded and ready to give people the facilities they need to know more about Dash.
    • The content of the conferences will be prepared by the Project team.

    I think you should break down this proposal to per month proposals and only ask for what you will consume that month. You are including a 3 month proposal, so your budget could be for 32,582 or 105.33 DASH per month instead of a high number in just one go.

    This will make masternodes less nervous of you running away with the money, and also we can evaluate your performance for a 2nd and 3rd round.

    It will also help you creating more interaction with the global community and be able to open it up for bigger projects.

    Hello,

    @DashAC Starting with a 300 dash proposal for 10 conferences looks like a high ask for a newcomer.

    You should start with a small proposal of 1 conference, show good results and approach the community again.

    This will improve your chances of getting funded.

    Best of luck!
    Jeremy

    Hi ,

    We already organized 2 conferences in our home university without support from dash network.

    If you checked our website you will see what we have done. And we got great results and big community from Tunisian people. That's why we are sure we have big chances to get funded.

    we are sure that this work would be more efficient in the middle east than in north Africa, and this is due to the development of middle east countries. In these countries people have so much money that they would be highly interested on investing it into Dash money.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Great work on your first two conferences.

    I think your proposal has a lot of upside and I would support it. I think as JZA mentioned breaking it down into a multi month proposal allows you to further build your reputation and de risk from a MN perspective.

    • Travel with hotel : 21000 USD ---> Details: 3 coordinators , 2 assistants , 2 technical.
    • Workshop Materials : 9000 USD ---> Details: branded folders,branded pens,note paper.
    • Dash AC Team : 23000 USD ---> Details: 3 coordinators , 2 assistants , 2 technical.

      Can you clarify all these expenses with a itemwise breakdown?

      21000USD for travelling to organize meetups is a lot of money.
    • It would be far cheaper to engage local teams than to engage your team for this.

      Also 23000 you are asking for remuneration for yourselves?
      -Community members rarely get any salaries to organize meetups as it is volunteer work.

    Hi ,

    • 21000 USD = travel to 5 different countries by airplane , hotel , food etc.. for 60 days include 7 members it's cheap , calculate with me again . 21000 ÷7 = 3000 USD for each one .

    • We asked 9000 USD for workshop Materials because for each conferences we'll use new Materials , please open your mind , it's 10 different conferences in 5 countries . 9000 ÷ 10 = 900 USD for each conference .

    • I saw before a lot of conferences proposals they asked budget for thier team also they asked for high budget to make just two conference in thier contury , you should to know my proposal it's different than the others .

    Thanks for your feedback .

    You should rework your budget as asking for large salaries for organizing meetups is unlikely to be seen favorably.

    As I said before, Doing one conference first would build some trust before asking money for 10 in one proposal.

    This would give us a chance to evaluate if it was a worthwhile investment.

    You should read the guide to making successful proposals on the forum.

    Hello! Greetings from Caracas, Venezuela. I like this pre-proposal. I think spreading DASH education is the best way to empower people and enlarging our community.

    However, as other members said before, you should break down your budget and also maybe try with only one country at this time.

    Why?

    You will be asking for less DASH, and you and your team will be able to live the experience of travelling together and making a conference out of your country. Also, giving numbers and metrics to the community of your first conferences in the first country you'll visit, will give a reference of your work on what you have reached, so you can expand your project like you want in the different countries of Middle East.

    In other sense, I think you should first talk with universities and have an approach with them before you submit your proposal so you can have the space for conferences for sure. Imagine you travel to the country and go to the university where you want to make the conference and the authorities don't give you the permission to do so, for whatever reason they have... It's important to secure those kind of little but important things before you make another step forward your project.

    My team Dash Youth Venezuela and I are going to start with our work visiting middle schools and universities to educate young people about DASH, and before all, we talked with the authorities of every institution we wanted to visit to assure those spaces. I recommend you the same, taking into account that you are going to travel.

    Congratulations for the work you all have done, wishing you the best! All my support from Venezuela.

    Showny.

    • Project management : 7000 USD ---> Details: Idriss Kassim.
    • Dash AC Team : 23000 USD ---> Details: 3 coordinators , 2 assistants , 2 technical.
    7000usd is quite a substantial ammount of money for a volunteer based meetups/conferences

    Hi

    Yes we asked 23000 usd for our team Who they will oversee 10 conferences / 60 days,
    if we calculated again 23000 ÷ 7 members = 3285 usd per one member / 3285 usd ÷ 60 days = 54 usd per day .

    And we asked for 7000 usd for the Project management because he's the owner of the team . 7000 usd ÷ 60 days = 115 per day .

    You should to know it's 60 days Outside our country

    Also that just the first budget , we'll make update about that soon .

    Thanks for you comment .

    "You should know that" you are being quite greedy here and it is plain to see. @RealMrHack is right.

    No one has been paid a salary for conducting a low skill job like a meetup and definitely no one has asked you to travel on our dime.

    Sorry, you are only a student and your time is not worth $115 a day. Not even close.
