Hi, Dash Community! Last January 20th, we had the pleasure of attending the Dash Caracas conference, led by algodon.franelas and her team, where we appreciated how people easily understood the importance of cryptocurrencies, and how to do business with this form of payment. From the day after the event our team, composed of José Da Silva, pastordash, Hgomez, and wgollini, has been working on forming the Dash Maracay Community with the firm purpose of converting Dash into the Cryptocurrency most used in the region central of Venezuela. Although we are recent members in this forum, we have a great experience in organization of events, and in the execution of complex projects. The proposal that we present below is the result of the work done by our team, with the support of Dash Caracas.

First, the theoretical aspect will be covered in a conference including the following presentations: Motivational Chat: Breaking Paradigms The ABCs of Dash and other Cryptocurrencies Legal and Fiscal Framework of Cryptocurrencies in Venezuela. Secondly, the practical aspect will be carried out with an EXPO-FAIR. This fair called DASH CITY will enable participants to conduct real transactions using Dash. 30 entrepreneurs will be invited to this Expo-Fair. They will offer their products at competitive prices and receive Dash as the only currency. Indeed, this second phase will be crucial for both, buyers and sellers, to truly understand how the system operates. Nonetheless, small payments must be made to the wallets of the attendees so the transactions can be performed. Additionally, the entire event can be watched from the comfort of home or office, via streaming. Target Market: The public will be divided into three segments: Direct, Referrals and Indirect. Direct, will be those attending the conference and Fair: 500 Persons 30% Industrialists, Merchants, and Entrepreneur 30% Students 40% General Public Referrals, social media followers of our attendees. As a strategy to broaden the scope, each attendee will be asked to post the link to connect the event via streaming on their social networks. Estimated public: 10 followers per attendee: 5000 Persons Indirect, people who will find out about the event via social media labels, and not because of actual participants. Estimated: 1000 Our close ties to Chambers and Regional Associations (Industries, SMEs, Construction, Commerce, Real Estate, Tourism) will help us score the estimated numbers within the established target. Place and Date: The event will be held at the facilities of the Hotel Pipo International Salons: Gran Hall (Controlled access) Gran Sasso (Conference) Area 650 m2. (7.000 foot2) Maximum capacity: 700 people. Canaima (Expo-Fair Dash City) Area 1.200 m2. (13.000 foot2) Date: April 2018 Hour: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Budget: Schedule 2018 Justification: Venezuelans are quickly entering the world of cryptocurrencies. Each day, a rising number of transactions are being carried out using this form of payment. Furthermore, to increase the awareness of the usage of Dash is needed. Taking from the example of Dash Caracas, an informative platform about the virtues of Digital Cash will be created. These events will be continuously held in Maracay city, where the attendees can acquire theoretical and practical information. The reason for choosing Maracay was its population and location. It is the fourth most populated city in Venezuela and it is located in the center of the country. Its economy is mainly based on Industry, Trade, and Tourism. This gives us an excellent opportunity to expand this series of conferences. Description of the city: Population of Maracay and Metropolitan Area: 2 million inhabitants Total Installed Industries: 1,560 Businesses: more than 15,000 Tourist areas: Colonia Tovar, Henri Pittier National Park, Bay of Cata, Choroni, Los Tacarigua Lake. In addition, Dash can be an alternative tool in business to the existing currency exchange control in Venezuela. Particularly, the companies in the state of Aragua are large importers-exporters of raw materials and finished products. This is another reason for choosing Maracay as the place to host this event. Conclusion: With your support, and working along with Dash Caracas, we will be able to consolidate Dash as the Cryptocurrency in Venezuela.
