#211 Introducing Smartcash to a wider community through Podcast

By hardcorecrypto


A funding request for sponsorship of the top South African crypto podcast through featuring Smartcash in interview with top crypto personality and also using it as a case study for a governance episode



My name is Grey Jabesi. Host of the Grey Ave Podcast. A top privately owned business and crypto podcast in South Africa. I interview outstanding individuals in business and crypto for the sore purpose of learning from their experiences and expertise. Since one of my main topics is Crypto and I've interviewed notable people in the space, I have a good listenership of both local and international audiences. Some of the people I have previously interviewed are:

Ivan on Tech: http://www.greyjabesi.com/entrepreneurship/startups/technology/ep67/

Peter Saddington: http://www.greyjabesi.com/entrepreneurship/startups/technology/ep64/

David Orban(the 1st person to ever own Ether): http://www.greyjabesi.com/travel/ep80/


The idea is to involve smartcash in 3 episodes.

1) As a case study in an episode about "Blockchain & Governance"

2) As a sponsor for a podcast with Wannipha Buakaew aka Crypto Jen(One of the top Crypto influencers in Asia)

3) As an example in an episode about Masternodes. This will also be in a video format which I will post on my new Crypto youtube channel ( has 1300 subscribers) and I'll promote with ads.

As an addition. I have 2 radio interviews scheduled in Johannesburg and Cape Town to discuss Crypto and blockchain. I will be able to name drop smartcash in both interviews.


My goal is to introduce Smartcash to a wider audience. Both seasoned crypto investors and newbies especially here in South Africa, many people are only familiar with Bitcoin and Ethereum which they feel is expensive and they choose not to participate. Smartcash will be appealing to them because it's less than a dollar and there is so much they can do with it if they think of ways to implement it in their own businesses etc.
