    This proposal is for Dash to enter into paid partnership with Smart Reach.
    This partnership will grant Dash the following:
    1 x Monthly State of the project podcast/AMA/ interview
    1 x Governance Conference Call per month
    5 x adverts within Smart reach releases per month
    1 x ITK episode with Tom White of Sky Sports News
    Dash logo on all smart reach graphics related to sponsored shows

    We believe that the State of the project and Governance conference calls will go a long way towards making your decentralised governance more effective, reduce voter apathy and give proposers a better platform to share their products and ideas. The value of these two items far outweighs the small cost of partnership in our opinion.

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

    What shows we create?


    ITK Crypto



    ITK crypto is our flagship podcast which brings in project leaders and important figures from the crypto currency world. We started off our rebranded show (formerly token tv +) with a BANG in the form of OEX one of China’s biggest exchanges by trade volume!
    ITK is available on youtube, Spotify, GooglePlay, and other popular podcast locations

    Rss feed : https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/225762.rss

    Developers corner



    Developers corner is a Podcast where CryptoSI quizzes some of the top Developers in the Crypto currency space, and asks them questions based on their actual public githubs and projects that they are building. It is aimed to be slightly more tech heavy than most podcasts, but information is delivered in a simple bite sized chunk.

    UX reviews

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Fxv-UhIYe8&t=3s

    Smart Reach resident UX expert Geoffrey Robertson (chockablock.io) reviews the User interface and experience of well known Prediction market software Augur. This feature length in depth review is a must see for UI/UX devs, packed with useful insight into how people especially newbies to crypto will view this Ethereum stalwart.

    Governance Calls

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmN75BGYCwg

    The purpose of this conference call is to give the projects who are seeking Partnership with PIVX a forum with which to put their ideas forward and a forum for PIVians to ask questions and help guide the Alliance in both projects best interests. The call will last at least 1 hour and a maximum of 2 hours and will follow a scheduled outline which is shared before the call.

    State of the Project

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOYZv8zi96Q

    State of the Project is a Monthly Podcast based on various awesome Crypto projects. The podcast delves into the current status of the projects and gathers news from important team members about the upcoming developments and advances..

    Social Media Following

    Twitter combined 8K+
    Facebook combined 3k+
    Youtube -100 -- Steemit combined 1K+
    Instagram -100

    Our social media numbers are still low, but considering we have just rebranded totally we should experience a rapid growth in our reach, with Tom whites media connections Our social media reach will be much larger in coming months

    ----------------------------
    What you will get, in depth.

    1 x Monthly State of the project podcast/AMA/ interview

    This will allow you to keep your community updated on developments and progress towards roadmap items, but more than this this allows community members to get involved and ask directions directly to team members and even put forward proposals and make suggestions for the progress of your project.

    The podcast will be recorded in Discord using Craig-Bot, this allows our professional sound engineer to alter each persons individual channel to get the best possible quality on a remotely recorded call.
    https://www.linkedin.com/in/joão-zurzica-90699b91/

    Once recorded, calls will be shared in the CMT discord, on youtube and posted to all the popular places that all Smart Reach content is located, this gives your project the opportunity to be seen by people outside of its usual userbase.

    1 x Governance Conference Call per month

    Decentralised projects are still getting to grips with developing strong social layers for community interaction and tackling voter apathy, currently very few projects dedicate any time to giving their community an audio forum with which to share and investigate proposals. Smart reach through its governance conference call program is doing just that, and the benefits are clear and obvious from the short amount of time they have been incorporated in PIVX, that not only to they help find excellent proposals, but they also help to highlight poor ones and stop the community from misallocating funds or trust.

    The governance call will be held in discord and after being recorded will be promoted on facebook and reddit with PAID advertising (cost covered by partnership fee) and the podcast will be uploaded to youtube, itunes spotify and all other serious podcasting hosting arenas. This service is one that is absolutely critical to any serious decentralised governance effort.

    5 x adverts within Smart reach releases per month

    Smart reach will be releasing plenty of content weekly featuring guests from various projects, these episodes will be listened to and shared by these communities and your project will have a short advert within the content, this is great exposure for your brand a considering these episodes will have paid advertising on facebook reddit and other platforms we expect the reach to be extensive and very well targetted.
    Each advert will be recorded in a state of the art studio by Tom White himself and be edited by a professional sound engineer to the highest possible quality. We will clarify the script before hand (please see script below)


    Advert script -- (to be decided by Dash community and team, help will be needed)

    1 x ITK episode with Tom White of Sky Sports News
    Your project will be featured on our flagship podcast free of charge.

    Dash logo on all smart reach graphics related to sponsored shows
    As well as the audio advert, your logo will also be featured on any graphics made for the show, our professional experienced graphics team are Rhubarb media, an experienced crypto branding company based in canada who have built all of our graphics to the highest standards. You can see for yourself on our thumbnails that our visuals are awesome (we dont like to brag)

    What are the long term plans for smart reach?


    Smart Reach is an ambitious project that aims to move a centralised media company into a decentralised media organisation.

    Do we really want the Decred logo on the graphics, Is this a cut and paste from a Decred Proposal, how did it go with them?

    Yes this proposal is being pitched to both Decred and Dash and hopefully will be accepted by both, I also plan on pushing towards PIVX and 1 more decentralised budget system, possibly SmartCash. I have edited out that mistake.

    The Decred proposal has not yet been launched, I wanted to get pre-proposal discussion started there too, it seems to be very difficult to get discussion on proposals prior to launch, which i guess highlights the need for initiatives like this.

    @Miner237 Did you have any views on the Proposal itself besides the fact that it's not exclusive to DASH?

    btw thankyou for the feedback!

    A lot of this is already being done by Dash watch, Dash Force and the core team which already does quarterly conference calls and other reports, plus they may not want to participate or have the time. There is a lot of redundancy and not much of a budget for this proposal right now.
    That said, at some point after y'all get going and have more content and metrics to judge I would be willing to give it a shot depending on what your asking price is. What is the ask?

    Thankyou, the conference call would be for propsers, not CORE devs, and would be monthly, Quarterly is too sporadic, the idea is to have a call for each superblock cycle. I've seen what Dash watch do and it's actually awesome, I'm sure its a method that other projects will adopt as reporting is an important factor, but my proposals seek to increase awareness/discussion BEFORE the proposal has passed and not after.

    I do not have an asking price, it's almost impossible to set a fee on something like this without community input and currently with the seemingly low budget (which is far higher than any other decentralised project of this type) the perceived consensus is that it's not yet needed. I deliberately didnt put a fee on this because I didnt want to see the age old "we could spend 1K on THIS INSTEAD" argument come up, I'd rather we just identified the pros and cons of the plan and refined it first, that way if I ask for too much money, someone could just clone the idea and I'd be happy to see it being done regardless. I was thinking somewhere in the region of 10-15 Dash per month/cycle, most of that would be spent on Facebook and reddit advertising to promote the shows, but yes I need to get some metrics on that and the brand needs to grow before it has value to easily be seen.

    Thanks very much for the feedback, Its beginning to look like I need to gather more information on how this initiative is helping younger projects before I launch this proposal here.

    What do you feel about this proposal NOT being exclusive to Dash, some people seem to find that problematic, do you share this concern?

    I thought you would be asking for much more with the scope of your project. But I guess since it will not be exclusive to Dash then the ask makes sense. I don't necessarily have a problem with it not being Dash exclusive as long as Dash people are featured in the podcast's and Dash gets a sponsor shout out and some kind of logo branding as has been done on various proposals in the past.

    If it is only going to be for 10-15 Dash per month I would strongly suggest submitting a proposal to DashBoost next month. The fee is only 1 Dash and the monthly limit/ask is 25 Dash. I would vote for it to give you guys a shot.

    Oh that is way smaller than I thought you were going to ask, which changes my thought on whether this might be possible. Sounds more similar to the sponsorship we did a while ago with the Daily Decrypt. Definitely consider DashBoost as I would not recommend risking the 5 dash fee for a 10-15 dash proposal.
