We have summarized the proposal for you in a short video. Click here


We were recommended to go this way in the forum. Does our proposal have a chance of financing? What do you mean?

We, the company Eventzauber Nord GbR, are the operators of the largest horror corn maze in Germany (near Kiel, the capital of the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein). This project started in 2015 and is now entering its fourth season. Every year our guests experience an interactive horror theater play in an 80,000 square meter corn field. The demand for tickets is so high that we have decided to expand this year to welcome more than 6,000 guests. Our advertising reaches more than 100,000 people all over Northern Germany. One reason for this is that the largest regional television station NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk, North German Broadcasting) reported about our attraction last year.

In the course of our expansion, we would like to offer DASH as a means of payment - both for the online ticket shop and at the box office, as well as in the horror corn bar. We have been using DASH privately for some time now and are fully convinced of its advantages for us as well as for other retailers. However, there are virtually no acceptance points here in northern Germany. We therefore not only want to expand our business, but also to be a technological pioneer here in northern Germany. DASH will make the biggest contribution to this. We are a young, innovative company and would like to do our part to bring DASH closer to our guests as a means of payment and create and strengthen awareness of this crypto currency. We have the necessary know-how to set up the DASH-Wallet on the mobilphone for our guests and to inform them about the necessary security measures. (password phrase and PIN). We would like to help to establish DASH on site.

Each year we process approx. 4,000 electronic payments and 3,000 cash payments (in the bar and in the shop) and hope to be able to process two percent via the DASH network in the first year. To this end, we have decided to give all DASH payers a 10% discount.

We plan to expand our offer substantially and will offer beside the horror corn maze, the forest of horror and a theatre tent with a freak show. For the first time we are offering three attractions, which is likely to increase our visitor numbers considerably. The horror corn maze is an interactive theater play in the corn field, suitable for guests aged 10 and above. The guests walk in groups of 12 to 15 people for about 90 minutes through the 80,000 square metre field live through a story. There are five showrooms in the cornfield, which are connected by long labyrinth passages. Actors hide in the labyrinths to frighten the guests. Each guest is a part of the theater play and is involved with his group in the solution of the mission. Of course, all events take place in the dark. After crossing the horror corn maze, guests have the opportunity to cross the forest of horror in small groups. This attraction is suitable for guests aged 16 and above and lasts another 30 min. In the theatre tent, guests aged 8 years and above can experience the "Cabinet de curiosités", a very special kind of freak show. All in all, the guests can be entertained for about 150 minutes. Our target group includes visitors aged 8 to 50 years.

As a further highlight we can announce that this year we are already supported with beverage sponsoring by fritz-kola, a very well-known beverage brand in the German scene.

To give you a little insight into our project, we have provided some press reports and trailers from the past years. Every year we are represented with our event in regional and national television programs. Clips from youtubers and the local print media will also be published. To have a look at some video clips, please click on the following link:

As a thank you, we can provide you with valuable advertising opportunities:

- Logo print on 45,000 flyers (incl. distribution throughout in northern Germany)
- Video production with our actors for social media to make Dash better known (short clip)
- Logo print on 6,000 tickets
- year round advertising on our Facebook page (reach approx. 150,000 visitors)
- year round advertising on our homepage (average clicks in the season per month 14,000)
- Advertising on site, in the bar, at the box office and via screen projection and banner hanging
- Dash day with advertising on the first matchday 08-24-2018
- Invitation to the big press & sponsoring event (TV, radio, newspaper)
- we will set up our own online shop for payments for the entire season from May to February (Incl. our dinner shows)

How much DASH do we need? For technical an other equipment and advertising material we calculated 174 DASH. For this we have prepared the following detailed list. The numbers in brackets mean that the required DASH quantity is given first, followed by the amount in euros.

2 IPad´s (2.9 / 720)
15 working hours, installation of the DASH POS system (3.6 / 900)
1 printing of advertising material (6 / 1,500)
1 office container ( 27.6 / 6,900)
2 20 feet ship container (showroom) (26.4 / 6,600)
1 40 feet ship container (showroom) (22 / 5,500)
1 transport of containers (8 / 2,000)
2 generators (10.4 / 2,598)
1 building materials (10 / 2,500)
1 circus tent (40 / 10,000)
2 outdoor video projector (2 / 920)
2 walkie-talkie (pack of 10) (1 / 238)
15 outdoor LED floodlights (0.8 / 203)
3 5.1 Dolby Surround System for showrooms (4.8 / 1,200)
3 outdoor loudspeaker (0.7 / 180)
1 popcorn machine with trolley (1.3 / 319)

@horrormaze -- Thanks for your pre-proposal and inquiries. From the looks of things, a lot of your proposal requests center around equipment that is used for your business and only a small amount is related to actually facilitating Dash as a payment system/option. That's not necessarily a problem in itself, but in return for that kind of funding for things that aren't directly relevant or beneficial to Dash, most MNOs would like to see some assurances about a return on investment. So if, for example, you had some market analyses about what kind of turnout your attraction has, the amount of people that go through every year, how many transactions you typically do, how many you estimate would be done in Dash, etc, that would give us a better idea on how to evaluate the benefit of funding the rest of your proposal.

One thing you might consider doing is offering customers that pay with Dash a discount. Other proposals have done this, even if only for a limited amount of time (5%-10% typically), to encourage user adoption and jump start a local Dash ecosystem. I might refer you to @feedbands recent Dash Fest as an example of a successful small-scale merchant integration.

So if you wanted to maximize your chances of being funded, those are some things you'd probably want to address initially.
