Mexico and its Southeast

Mexico is a country with a population of at least 119 million inhabitants. The Yucatan peninsula has 3.5 million people and Quintana Roo (Cancun, Playa del Carmen) has 1.5 million.

The region of the Yucatan Peninsula is rich in Sun and Beach tourism, adventure tourism, ecotourism and archaeological tourism, it is estimated that at least 8 million tourists a year pass through this region.

Who Am I? What do I bring to the table & whats my goal here? What are your credentials? Why are you qualified for SmartHive funding?

We are @Eiky (Agrocultural Engineer) and @Oucan (Financial and Fiscal Engineer, International Commerce degree), since November 2017 we have being promoting SmartCash in the Yucatan Peninsula Region, mainly Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Merida.
We have been in the world of cryptocurrencies since 2016, since October 2017 we were monitoring the community without being participants, however we realized the excellent way how the community works so it is a pleasure to be part and work to increase it and consolidate it.
We are confident our credentials meet the needs to be funded by SMART HIVE because of our enthusiasm, willpower and the work already done. This previous work can be consulted in the pre-proposal link.

Deliverables / Job description of the proposal. Ideally it will be itemized. What are you doing? be specific. How much does it cost? Why?
This proposal has 2 main parts.
Carry out weekly meet ups in different cities of the yucatan peninsula (Cancun, Playa del Carmen).
Bring together cryptocurrency enthusiasts and educate them about Blockchain and SmartCash, introduce new crypto-enthusiasts.
We will make a refund of USD 10 per person to their consumption check. To attract attendees and facilitate access to information and use of SMARTCASH. Encourage the participation of attendees in the SMARTCASH community so that in the future they can contribute with more ideas.
Number of expected participants 30 per session
Distribution of Stickers, T-Shirts, Keyrings.

Promotion of SmartCash in Business to be accepted as a payment method.
Encourage the use of SmartCash as a payment method in small chains of businesses in Cancun.
Train the owners and managers of businesses in the use of SmartCash as a method of payment, monitoring, training.
Distribute SmartCash Stickers, T-Shirts, Keychains.


So here you have the specific monthly breakdown.

Administration USD 2500
Smart Fridays (Viernes Inteligente) (4 sessions per month (30 pax / 10USD)) 1200 USD
Expenses (transportation (Cancun-Playa del Carmen / Playa del Carmen-Cancun, Cancun Merida)) 900 USD
Merchandise (T-shirts / Stickers / keychains (meet ups, enterprises accepting smartcash as payment) 750 USD
Miscellaneous expenses (price compensation) 150 USD
USD TOTAL 5500 USD Per Month /SmartCash

SmartCash past
Eiky and I (Oucan) we are part of Team SmartCash Mexico with The_walker, in my case @oucan I help with the customer service of SmartCash social networks.
Together with Eiky we have carried out at least 4 meetings with a great attendance of at least 150 people in total, we dedicate our own time and resources to the promotion of SmartCash in our region.

Possible questions.
What marketing channel will be used?
Our main communication channel will be mainstream local media such as magazines, social media and socialité events. We will continue collaborating with the official SmartCash MX networks to promote weekly events, generating interaction in social networks.

What happens if they don’t have 30 people per meeting?

We will use all the funds until they are exhausted, that is, if there are less than 30 participants, that resource will be allocated for the next meet up, therefore, is a project that in its naturalness can tend to last more than 3 months.

Conclusions. With this proposal we seek to increase and encourage the SmartCash community in Mexico, in one of the most touristic areas of Mexico and the world, as well as getting at least 5 goods or service businesses to accept SmartCash as a payment method in Cancun. We are looking for a 3 months funding. In order to reach 15 business accepting SmartCash in Cancún.

    Why these South American proposals always are so expensive? I mean 16500 us dollar ,seriously? I bet you can so good stuff with only 1k dollar down there which is also pretty good money. But that huge amount down there is just too much.

    Hi how you doing Ninja Surprise. Mexico is in North America *https://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/América_del_Norte https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_America and you can see the specific breakdown. We will give full transparent monthly reports. It is a 3month proposal. Cancun, as you know is one of the top of tourism cities, so the cost of life is not like classic mexican cliché *cactus and sombreros. I hope you can come to mexico/cancun and corroborate that information i will gently help you and show you the zone. We dont want to do "good stuff" we want to do the greatest stuff . I invite you to follow the result. Please don't hesitate on keep asking and expressing your opinions we will answer them, improvements are welcome aswell. Thanks.

    This is great proposal, adoption of the cryptocurrency is very important for a great project like SmartCash. The Mayans Rivera is a great place to work in cryptoadoption, we need business accepting SmartCash and people talking about it. Voting YES!
