Our local community Bitcuners have grown significally and many of the members are interested into taking DASH to the next level in the City. We want to convert Cancun into a DASH hotspot around the world and bring a DASH economy to the city. Current Events At this point, Bitcuners has succesfully carry out meetups that have grown a lot and have caught the eyes of many media outlets. This have led to some businesses taking a step forward and open doors for DASH and Bitcoin to do business. Other businesses are following through and I think we got a momentum to market DASH strongly to the rest of the city. The timing is also great because right now the Spring break season is over and we have a window to make improvements before Summer. So doing an open house type event for businesses where they can get to experience DASH as a payment medium as well as some consulting on how to adopt DASH on their business could be a great first step. On the other side, we also want people in general to learn about DASH. We are confident that if we get people to hear about DASH, they will be interested enough to check out and follow through on the information trail, so we are looking to make noise on the major streets of the town and put DASH across town. What are we doing so far? We are already taking steps to ensure that the word is out, and people know what some businesses have done with DASH. We are about to publish an article about local businesses taking DASH on a local newspaper. We are in talks with a local newspaper and an article will follow and we hope to get some flyers and general DASH information on those places for poeple that want to learn more about the system. What are we planning to do? We got a momentum and it would be the perfect time to get DASH involved and try different strategies. We would need to hire a street team in order to push the DASH awareness. Get them to distribute the flyers, also put a display time for DASH on the main streets on the city. We are also planning to market DASH to businesses by having a medium size event and have DASH people pitch them the idea of using DASH for their businesses. The event could be of great benefit by the presence of Daniel Diaz as Business developer for DASH and other DASH community personalities like Amanda B Johnson. We hope to capture enough attention about the cryptocurrency to at least put the option on the table. - Street team and Flyers printout 27.8 dash - Business Event 58.25 dash - City display on popular parts of the city 22.24 dash - Social media marketing 22.21dash - Design and operational cost 27.45 dash - International dash speakers 74 dash (per speaker) - DASH fee reimbursement 5 dash Total: 236.2 DASH (16,753 usd) on 2month period What we plan to achieve We plan to achieve at first, outreach to the business community and strong awareness of the cryptocurrency. The event would be for selected few and we plan to have some type of good impression by having some wine catering. We divided the process into 2 months, first month will be for the marketing and promotion of DASH and the second month will include the event and related expenses. In total this will open opportunities for consulting on cryptocurrency and be able to help develop the economy. We are still looking for feedback but we feel that having this city become DASH hotspot. Furthermore, we see this effort as a sort of "test bed" for marketing DASH to a business community. We will attempt to determine how many people we reach and how many respond positively, especially if they become a DASH vendor or get and use a DASH wallet, and this information will be available to the DASH community to help guide future outreach efforts (i.e. these things seem to work; these don't).
