By CoachDigi


This is stage 1 of the creation of SmartStudent ecosystem. We'll be focused in starting a SmartStudent community in two different universities in 2 different cities of Mexico: Universidad Anahuac Cancun at Cancun and Universidad de las Americas Puebla at Cholula, we will also start spreading the SmartCash word to highschool students. We will creat the SmartStudent ecosystem with food schoolarships to some students and athletes from the universities. The students will receive weekly SmartCash so they can pay their food in different restaurants/establishments that are part of our SmartRestaurants club. This restaurants will receive SmartCash as payment. For creating the SmartStudent ecosystem we first have to create a SmartStudent community involving Students, restaurants and universities adminsitrations. The objective of Stage 1 is: a) to convince at least 5 restaurants/establishmenst to accept SmartCash as payment in every city b)Know what can the universities contribute to SmartCash (SmartCash ATM, SmartCash branding in campus, SmartCash meetups, SmartCash campus radio, SmartCash sport tickets payment, etc) and what SmartCash can contribute to the universities (Sponsorship of: Sports teams, conferences, students activites, Blockchain courses, etc) c)Know what students need (how they receive their monthly budget, what restaurants/establishments the students go, etc) How we will do it? With 8 meetups in 3 different cities (Cancun, Cholula and Mexico city) With meetings with universities personel and restaurant/establishment owners When? stage 1 first month: from march 28th to april 29th Budget: $7,515.00 USD


Who am I?
I´m Coach Digi and I live with Oremor (my wife) in Cancún, México. I´m a public highschool teacher and a college american football coach. I´m also an industrial engineer with a masters degree in mkt.
I´m a Bitcuner (Cancún crypto community) and had been promoting cryptos for the last months by doing monthly meetups. this meetups have been focused in highschool and college students of Cancún.
I new about SmartCash in november, thanks to @oucan ´s and @Eiky SmartCash Meetup in Cancun and bought my first SmartCash.
I started minning SmartCash with some GPUs and also I have a Smartnode.

Why a SmartStudent ecosystem?

  • The young generations are the ones who will adopt cryptos in the future, so introducting SmartCash to highschool and university students, will help masive SmartCash adoption

What is a SmartStudent ecosystem_

  • Foreign and international Students can receive their monthly budget from their parents in SmartCash.
  • Students can pay in the school cafeteria, restaurants and establishments with SmartCash and use their SmartCard
  • SmartCash is a sponsor of universities activities like, sports, culture, tech conferences, etc, and are paid with SmartCash

How will we create a Smartstudent ecosystem?

  • We will start the Smartstudent ecosystem by sponsoring students and sports teams of the university,
  • with food schoolarships.
  • The students will receive an amount of SmartCash weekly, so they can buy their meals at the School cafeteria and other restaurants and establishments.
  • Also each student with a schoolarship will invite a different friend weekly to eat in a restaurant,
  • the friend will receive some SmartCash so he can pay his meal and keep some SmartCash in his wallet.

Cancun, Quintana Roo Mexico:
We will start with the Anáhuac University campus Cancun. even do is a small university (2000 students) Anahuac University has more than 5 campus in Mexico.
Hihgschool CBTIS #111 (2800 students) I teach here.

Cholula, Puebla, Mexico:
We will start at the Universidad de las Americas-Puebla.. It´s one of the university that more appears and news coverage has in Mexico (10,000) students.

Both universities have an american football and sports teams (I played in th UDLAP and coached at Anáhuac Cancún) and both have foreign and international students.

We divided this proyect in 4 stages, the first stage will start in March.
Stage 1: Conception of a SmartStudent community in the college campus.
Stage 2: Birth of a SmartStudent Ecosystem.
Stage 3: Growth of the SmartStudent Ecosystem.
Stage 4: Reproduction of a SmartStudent Ecosystem.

Stage 1: Concepcion (2 months: part of march, april and may). : Create a SmartStudent Community

We will do a marketing research, so we can know the needs of the SmartStudent Ecosystem’s elements. ( restaurants/establishments, students and authorities).

Restaurante owners:

  • We will start some SmartCash presentations to restaurants and establishments owners, so they can know about SmartCash and how they can accept SmartCash as payment.
  • We will do Meetups in the food establishments. (I had already talk to some in Cancun and Cholula and are ready to participate).
  • We need at least 5 restaurants that accepts SmartCash in each town for stage 2.
  • We will create the SmartRestaurant Club, only for restaurants and establishments that accept SmartCash.


  • We will start doing SmartStudents meetups so they can know how to use SmartCash as payment in establishments.
  • In the first meetup we will ask for volunteers that can help us promote the next SmartStudents meetups, so in a future they will be the ones who will do the SmartStudents meetup.

University authorities:

  • We will start talking and presenting SmartCash to the university authorities.
  • First we will talk with the head coaches of the football teams, so they can introduce us with other university authorities.
