    Dear MNO's, this is an interview with Craig Mason where we talk about the details of our proposal. Let us know your comments and questions. (Many thanks to Craig for this nice talk).



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello Dash Community! We are excited to introduce you the pre-proposal for a Massive Adoption Program for Merchants.

    Important links:

    Pre-Proposal document: http://bit.ly/2pcgCY3
    Survey results: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DnAZWR-PWwyNajh-ojh3RAfWtP5iqHo0



    1- MAIN OBJECTIVE:

    We will visit 2000 merchants in the next 3 months in Caracas, in order to convert at least 600 into Dash accepting businesses.

    2- THE PROBLEM:
    In Venezuela there have been important efforts from successful initiatives to promote the Dash adoption, such as Dash Caracas, making more than 2000 new users download their wallets and “getfreedash” with its effective referral system. However, we look with concern that the number of users has an exponential growth, while the number of merchants or businesses where they can spend to obtain goods and services grows very slowly, being unbalanced the user-merchants ratio.

    3- VALIDATION:
    We did a market research which shows that almost 91% of merchants would be willing to accept Dash only if they have enough information about how to use it and the legal aspect. We will teach them about this issues, but we will to do it massively. You can find the results of the surve in this link: https://goo.gl/guBdAc

    4- THE SOLUTION:

    [​IMG]

    Dash Merchant Venezuela

    Dash Merchant Venezuela aims to balance the users-merchants rate and achieve DASH adoption by small, medium and big merchants in a massive way. Providing them with the appropiate information through a professional and nearby institution that can provide them with support. They need with legal, technical, financial, accounting and tax advice to accept Dash as a payment method in their businesses.

    General Strategy:
    1-
    We will visit 2.000 merchants in Caracas, Venezuela.

    2- Pitch them what is DASH and why is the best way to accept payments in Venezuela and improve their cashflow.

    3- We will ask merchants to accomplish some requirements. If they complete the following list, we will give them a "training tip" of 5$ in Dash :
    - Put the "Dash Accepted here" sticker in their business.
    - Post on their social media that they are accepting Dash.
    - List their business in https://discoverdash.com/
    - List their business in the Android app "Criptolugares" which is also a merchant directory.
    - List their business in the merchant directory of http://dashvenezuela.org/

    4- We will have 2 sales team: Team #1 will cover the east of Caracas, and Team #2 will cover the west.

    5- We have segmented the merchants in 3 groups in order to make different approaches:
    - VIP: Hotels, airlines, big chains (supermarkets, franchises), gourmet class restaurants, high clothing, turism.
    - A: medium restaurants, coffee shops, cars workshops, medium companies.
    - B: little businesses, new entrepreneurs, "Kioskos" (little stores in the middle of the street), etc.

    6- For a deeper understanding from merchants, we will give free courses regarding:
    - How to accept DASH as a payment method.
    - How to setup their DASH wallets.
    - How to buy and sell DASH with Bolivares.
    - Cryptocurrency legal framework in Venezuela.
    - How to integrate DASH in their cost structure.
    - Tips and recommendations.
    This courses will be given 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Fridays)
    7- Referral Strategy:
    - Every merchant will win 10 points for each merchants they refer to us.
    - When they get 50 points (5 referred merchants) they will won a $15 prize in Dash.
    - In this way we will reach more merchants with less effort.


    5- WHO ARE WE?

    YES from me! Awesome, guys!

    Edit:
    Perhaps you should double the number of "Dash Accepted Here" stickers from 2000 to 4000. One for the door/window, one for near the cash register. Or maybe even three per business.

    The brilliant thing about this alliance is that they could eventually serve all of LatAm in the long term. Very, very exciting. Venezuela will lead the way!

    If I wasn’t sold before, the last line of the preproposal video sold me:
    “Venezuela: The first Dash Nation.”

    Si.

    This is an incredible proposal. It would be wonderful if you had a means of video documenting your progress with this. Truely inspiring. Do let us know if there is any way we can collaborate.

    hello @AlejandroE, I believe the Legal Advisor is one of the pillars of your project. The first Q of merchants will be: "que hago con el SENIAT?" (what should I do with IRS & Taxes?) I'd like to know that answer and the second Q will be: how I know the equivalency of Dash to Bs? I believe if you cover those aspects adoption will be massive. Mucha suerte mi pana!

    This seems like a far more effective strategy than air dropping a bunch of Dash and hoping the merchants show up.

    And, at a tiny fraction of the price.

    Hello, thanks for your comment. Please, could you be more specific with this? We think that the numbers are very adaptive to the current situation in Venezuela, the salaries are very good in order to have the best team for this job and also to motivate them. Companies in Venezuela pay very good salaries to their best employees in order to hold them. A 30$ salary is not enough for living, and that is why employees leave the companies. We will have a high quality and motivated team

    Hello Tomas, thank you for your questions!

    1- In Venezuela we already have a legal framework for cryptocurrencies, so it is legal to accept payments with cryptos. We are already working with our legal advisor (Carlos Trujillo) setting up a legal/acountable guide for merchants, it will have all the articles and executive orders that show that cryptos are legal in Venezuela. This will be part of the courses we will give to merchants.

    2- There is a website called dashven.com which shows a reference rate of Dash/Bolivares/Dolar, it is very useful. Also, there are many exchanges which show the Bolivares/Dash rate before you buy or sell your dash. Some of these are: Cryptobuyer.io, Basichange, Cryptoway, and soon Cryptolifex and Colibit will be live.

    Thanks again!

    I am very excited to be a part of this project, along with all the support from the team from DASH VENEZUELA.

    This has a lot of possibilities both for merchants and for the Venezuelan people in general.

    For Venezuela, DASH has not only the benefits it has for everyone all around the world. We have specific problems for which DASH brings specific solutions, such as:
    • Lack of cash.
    • Malfunction of debit and credit cards POS.
    • Daily and weekly limits of the amount of wire transfers.
    • Exchange control.
    • Hiperinflation.
    So, massive merchant adoption will help solve this problems, people who live in Caracas will be able to buy goods and services directly using DASH, also their friends and families who live abroad can buy gifts and aids for them, merchants can import parts and materials and export their products... the world opens up for us!

    I hope MNOs and all the community reads, comments and vote when the proposal goes up.

    I am so excited about this proposal. We are sure that with this type of ideas we will achieve that DASH circulates more in our economy.
    From Guayana we hope we can also help them reach those spectacular numbers that have been proposed.
    Un saludo desde la tierra del oro y el hierro.
