This day was a wonderful experience..!EVENT REPORT
5th Dash Caracas Conference with Samuel Barbosa
We had the honor and the pleasure of having @Samuel Barbosa as a special guest and the speaker for our event. We picked him up from the airport and he began to live the DASH experience: his driver was paid in DASH, his lunch in Restaurant Alto Mar was paid in DASH, and that evening we held a welcome meetup in Gourmet Planet, also paid entirely in DASH. (Here is the entire photo album)
This was possible thanks to our Entrepreneurship Program, lead by
@Hanny Figueroa Dash Ccs
through wich we teach merchants how to accept DASH as payment.
As part of the preparations, on friday February 23rd we held a workshop specially designed for the press, called: "DASH - DIGITAL CASH and other criptocurrencies for journalists". (Here is the entire photo album)
On saturday February 24th 2018, our fifth conference, entitled
"How to accept payments in DASH- Digital Cash"
was held in the Mochima Hall of the Pestana Caracas Premium City & Conference Hotel.

the registration began, we welcomed around 549 people, they received
their materials for the conference, one folder with instructions on how to
download the DASH wallet in their phone, paper and a pen for them to
be able to take notes during the conference, and one DASH City Passport,
with their names on it.
Also, they received help from our Support Team in collaboration with the team
from DASH Help Venezuela, who assisted them in downloading the DASH
Wallets, and other technical questions they asked.
Participants began to enter the hall, where they waited for the conference to begin,
while they watched short videos that explained what is blockchain technology,
what are cryptocurrencies, and what is DASH, in order to help them understand better

Ivette Cerrada (Twitter: @icerrada), leader of the Innovation Team, explains what will happen in the afternoon, in our special activity called DASH City.
12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
54 entrepreneurs had set up their stands, in order to welcome the participants in the second edition of the festival called DASH City, where we received all of our participants from the morning plus aproximatedly 200 more people.
At DASH City, people received a DASH giveaway, and they were able to spend it buying services or products ofered by the entrepreneurs (who accepted only DASH) that included food, beverages, clothes, accesories, taxi, art, technical support, tourism, home appliances, beauty, health services, non profit organizations, MOTORCYCLES and more.
Every time they buyed something, they got a stamp in their DASH City Passports, that enabled them to receive a refund! And if they donated some of their DASH, they got a heart shaped stamp, that enabled them to receive a special incentive.
We offered the workshop: "I have DASH... now what?", with the following facilitators:
@DimitarCV founder of eBitco (Twitter: @emprendobitco).
@aevfmsc20 founder of DASH San Antonio de Los Altos (Twitter: @dashsanantonio).

The Cryptolifex Team had the opportunity of presenting their project and make a live trial of their testnet. They also had a stand in the event @jean carlosramirez as did Colibit as well @rafa @Ronald Blanco
Thanks to our new PR Team, I held meetings with 5 organizations, who are now in the way of making an alliance with DASH Venezuela to encourage the adoption of DASH - Digital Cash in Venezuela.
I would like to thank AGAIN the Master Node Owners who have supported this iniciative with their votes.
