Think of HERO as Dash's Hollywood talent agent. Every actor knows that their agent can't promise them a part in any show they want. The agent works the studios, production companies, and industry relationships to get a part for the client. That's what HERO will do for Dash. And unlike an actor, Dash can bring some deal sweeteners in the form of placement fees and assets.
By the way, there's another thing we should consider. Dash will be the first and only crypto currency that will hire a Hollywood agent, and I think the sheer novelty of that will draw a lot of interest from entertainment industry press. If there is one thing that Hollywood loves, besides fame and money, it is fads, and you know they feel the heat being generated by crypto at this time. You and I know that this isn't just a fad, but Hollywood doesn't care.
While I mostly agree with you if the budget isn't full, I think this is still worth it. And I don't expect the budget to be completely used up this month.$200K for mere speculation, no commitment to anything specific.
I hear what you're saying and to some other larger organisation it's probably worth a punt.. and that's the key word here, punt.
What else would $200K buy for dash? Dash was previously offered it's own documentary and that was rejected due to cost. And here you are, nothing specific, when I'm thinking it could be better spent elsewhere.
I think it is quite easy to envisage a scene where a character is making a bitcoin payment (and frustrated by having to wait a long time for a confirmation) and another character says something about Dash Instant send... maybe this is a little bit heavy handed and blunt... but, I think you get the picture.I think this is a great marketing practice in principle, but Dash does not have the level of ubiquity that Razer has. Every gamer recognizes the Razer logo because we've been buying their keyboards and mice for 20 years.
Unless a character specifically went out of their way to explain the Dash block chain to someone, this doesn't seem like something that would facilitate any kind of retention. You would have to secure an unfeasible amount of dialogue.
Silicon Valley featured the Samsung Gear VR in Season 2, but they referred to it as the Oculus because Samsung Gear VR is too many syllables.
Amanda B Johnson recently did a great video on the embryonic state of Dash brand recognition. I tend to agree with her.
Just my two cents.
Which is exactly why we need an agent in Hollywood representing Dash. HERO is reviewing scripts every day, looking for opportunities for their clients. If they see bitcoin mentioned in a script, that is a golden opportunity for Dash. At the very least, they will contact the writers, producers, etc. and educate them about Dash digital cash and of course try to persuade them to use it in their production.it is easy to imagine "bitcoin" being mentioned or discussed without anyone paying for such placement.
Great! Its good to see a community member like you in Dash utilizing large amounts of the Treasury funds. We have a lot to spend and it's great you are finding routes to give it use. Best of luck with you!Thanks @MizzyMax
I decided a couple of weeks ago to postpone this proposal because I didn't think conditions were right for it in this cycle. And, you're right, it needs to wait until I have established a good track record managing large projects for the Dash community.
I am thinking of reworking this into a larger Dash Hollywood project that will promote Dash in the entertainment industry here in Los Angeles.
I think Julie is right - if we want to make the leap from nerd tech to something people want to learn about and use, we need a way to tell Dash's story in a popular show like Silicon Valley. This would create incredible buzz and desire to learn about and use DASH. As much as our crypto-anarchist ideals wouldn't like to admit, Hollywood is still the major source of social engineering in the West and IMO we must use the system to our advantage. I will vote yes (x4) on this and will be excited to see what HERO can do for DASH.For those of you who are finding yourselves leaning toward HERO's program, the next questions to consider are, what is Dash's story and what is the most concise way to communicate it both visually and verbally?
