    The following proposal is being put forth by three parties in Sao Paulo Brazil, Sean Morgan, the cofounder of CoinYou.Co Crypto Education Platform, Ezequiel Gomes, the chief-editor of DashBR.com and Dr. Husam Abboud of the blockchain research lab and Adus.org.br, a refugee reintegration organization.

    The Problem: Refugees sometimes lack:
    • Financial Literacy

    • A Bank Account

    • Any Financial Resources

    • A Way To Make Money

    • An Affordable Way To Send Money Abroad To Family

    The Opportunity:

    People that had to move away from their countries often have to start a new life with little resources and need financial education to live in a foreign land. This opens a door for crypto solutions to meet this need and offers a new perspective on money and economy. The crypto philosophy about financial freedom and the ability to transact over borders can give a new horizon to this kind of people and this makes them specially interested in learning as much as they can and as fast as they can to be able to explore crypto potencial in practice as soon as they can.

    Program Process:

    1. Ezekiel and Sean would create an English and Portuguese curriculum focused on the basics of using DASH and using DASH to buy goods, sell goods and services, use it as a remittance etc. The curriculum will be a series of videos, tutorials, and articles.

    2. The videos will be produced using borrowed equipment from CoinYou and some equipment such as lights will need to be purchased.

    3. The articles will be printed into a take-home pamphlet for the students.

    4. The videos will be played in the classroom and will be available offline once students download them from the CoinYou app if they have a smart phone.

    5. There will be 2 live training sessions at the Adus.org.br facilities Each class will have 25 students and 5 assistants (volunteers or those hired through the program) to help students in groups of five to do hands on training using borrowed laptops from Adus and CoinYou. Students will watch the videos and then get their questions answered by the teacher (Ezequiel Gomes).

    6. An entrepreneurship class will be held to help students formulate a business plan for their DASH.

    7. Follow up contact will be made to determine how effectively students used DASH funds to start a business and if additional help is needed for them to effectively use the funds.

    ROI / BENEFITS FOR DASH:

    1. Teach Dash helps DASH with its goal of converting people who don't know how to use Dash into real time users.

    2. Frequently asked questions or problems users have will be put into a report and sent to the core team before another proposal is sent for a more scaled training. This addresses Dash’s strategy for growth, to understand user needs and solve users problems

    3. Documentation of the program will be promoted in the media, which will be great marketing for DASH and show that Dash not only works but that it is an organization that cares and helps people.

    4. Video documentation of the program will provide proven use cases as a Remittance service and functioning microeconomy.

    5. High quality DASH courses produced in multiple languages can be used by millions of users online.

    6. We will help to convert small and big businesses into real Dash merchants.

    7. We are committed to provide updates and reports on a monthly basis at: Dash forum thread. Also we will send detailed information to the Dash Network.

    I am not a big fan of giving money away, my philosophy is, if you want people to use your coin as money, start by treating it as money. So far this looks more like free cupons.

    I agree that we must treat dash as money, as it is, and we are not doing anything different from that in this. Money also must be useful and the whole point is teaching people to use dash as money, in practice, what is impossible without having dash to use. The coins will be given to them in the context of education about crypto/DASH and inthe context of creating small business and personal enterprises using this technology. Thanks for your thougths and hope we count on your support, JZA.

    Thanks for your thougths, JZA, but let´s say that there are "educational and social proposals" (teach dash helping refugees, giving them incentive to learn and to use dash to meet their needs) and "comercial proposals" (sell dash). Here we have a first kind of proposal and you can fell free to propose the second kind and we´ll support your efforts. Cheers!

    You can incentivize them by offering discounts or reinbursement. Like business usually incentivize a payment method, like buyback when you purchase wiht american express visa. Or flying miles. I agree there could be other type of incentives. But at least you are treating it like money.

    Yes, that´s for sure. All of the courses will be full of incentives for them to create and sustain a dash based economy for the beneffit of them all and the others will come next, and the network will bennefit from it from various standpoints. Thanks again for your interest in our pre-proposal!

    Education in the field of currencies is important and promising today. But knowing how to write correctly is more important than knowing how to mine, how to buy and how to trade currency. So buy an essay here - > UK PapersOwl - it is a service that will do everything for you. And I wish good luck with trading and buying cryptocurrencies for everyone.
