Hi,
could you send me a mail to [email protected] and describe where you got stuck? We are currently redesigning the onboarding process so you will have a one stop sign up in a few weeks. Dash as payments work great and we had the first people here in Munich using Dash to buy some beers!

cheers Christoph

UPDATE ON THE DASH TO ADOPTION CAMPAIGN.......

Dash to Adoption is underway! Check out our page here: http://dashtoadoption.com

So far I have helped to setup 12 businesses with 8 more in the process of adding Dash bringing the total number of converted business to 20. It has taken me 44 days to do so. So that's 20% of my goal in 44% of the time which means I need to pick up the pace. I am working with my virtual assistant to compile large lists of prospects and will be contacting them all as well as reaching out to local businesses in the Austin area.

Tonight or tomorrow I will be sending out the Dash merchant survey to a list of 63 existing Dash merchants. In my emails I have also found more businesses that accept Dash that were not previously listed on any maps or listings. I will add them to the Dash Map and SpendDash.com.

I created a forum post that will serve as the beginnings of the Dash Merchant Association. Not much action yet but I will be invited all of the existing merchants to participate.

Below you will find images from several of the new businesses listing Dash as a new form of payment. We are getting the word out about Dash to all of these company's customers!

Free Talk Live is a nationally syndicated radio show that is on 171 different radio stations and is the 31st most popular talk radio program in the country. The program was instrumental in spreading bitcoin adoption and boasts having introduced Roger Very himself to bitcoin.





Liberty Radio Network (LRN.FM) is one of the most popular libertarian internet radio stations in the country.


Liberty Lobby LLC is a lobbying firm based in NH.




Empirico specializes in home water filtration systems.



Dr. Matthew Buckley is an Austin based Naturopath who has a large base of patients.

I found the dash tip jar page. Before i just scrolled to the bottom and only saw the btc add and shapeshift for all other alts. It would be nice to have dash next to btc on the front page so people don't miss it, maybe someday.

So, after they are integrating, I'll be at 26. Still a long ways to go but I think I can get it done.

Big announcement! - In order to ensure success with this project, I am asking for help from the Dash community.

For every business you recruit and either help set them up or send them over to me to get setup, I will send you one Dash. I have recruited 15 businesses and have 15 others that are being setup. I have many other warm leads. I'm hoping to pull in at least 25 new businesses through this avenue. Let me know if you have any questions or help. Comment here or email me at John Bush 512 - at - gmail . com

Also, have you seen the interview I did with the talented Amanda Johnson of Dash Detailed!?!

Check it out!

Heads up, I will be issuing a report on my Dash to Adoption effort in the next few days. I came up short but gave it a strong effort. I will continue this effort until I reach my goal and have invested many resources in compiling a massive list of potential Dash businesses. Thanks to the Dash community for the opportunity to embark on this ambitious mission.

No one doubts your intentions, it was just a tough undertaking. Let's see if we can seal the deal with those "potential Dash businesses".

I thought your goal was quite ambitious, too bad you didn't get to 100 on schedule but I will look forward to your update. Thanks!

What can we do with this massive list I have? Is there a brain trust I can share it with? It's a giant list of businesses that accept bitcoin. also a huge list of VPN companies.

It would be easier if they didn't have to sign on to the Cryptotard pipe dream... If they could accept Cryptotards' money, but get the fiat they love so dearly, there wouldn't be such a hard sell to get them to agree with all the pseudo-libertarian nerdisms. You wouldn't be out there trying to convert them all to the cult of crypto. If it's nothing more than another card swipe terminal that plants cash in their bank account, they won't need to be so convinced and educated. They'd be coming to you... Fill in the blanks later.

I have nothing against hard work... But the cliche "work smarter, not harder" definitely applies here.

Just think how many more trees you can chop down with a chainsaw, rather than beat them down with your forehead... Onlookers have to wonder if you're really such a smart guy if they see you slowly chopping down trees with your face, instead of that shiny new chainsaw you're ignoring...

Cart in front of horse.

This is a good idea. I recently posted a similar idea to the forum (I can't link to it here, I don't have 3 posts yet in order to post links). Basically the idea was to reward anyone who wants to sign up merchants, ideally as a percentage of sales conducted by that merchant using Dash.

Anyway, merchant adoption is the "Grand Daddy" of Dash's main challenge to achieve worldwide adoption. Good luck with your project!
