Summary

Requesting for funding to quickly introduce Smartcash to the Ashanti community targeting the youth in tertiary institutions, mobile money merchants, business owners and industries. The project seeks to educate the major population in Kumasi metropolis, Obuasi and Sekyere Efigyasi. The reason is to create awareness on the specific benefit that exist and why businesses should accept Smartcash. The project will however educate the mass on the benefits of Merchants and the ways that Cryptocurrency can positively affect small businesses to eliminate chargeback fraud, higher transaction cost and to gain experience in Blockchain Technology and Smartcash.

Description

Why Ashanti Region

The Ashanti Region is an administrative Region centrally located in the middle belt of Ghana. however, it is the most populated region in the country. The Region is known for its major Gold bar and Cocoa production. The Region is made up of graduates, administrators, bankers, industrialists, Business owners etc. unfortunately most of the people have less or no knowledge on Cryptocurrency but the good news is that about 80% of the population are into businesses and savings. This therefore provide sufficient room to promote Smartcash through the youth in the universities, the major banks, business owners and the industries.

Why these communities

Kumasi is the capital city of Ashanti Region, in southern Ghana. it is the commercial, industrial, cultural and the central business district of the region. Economic activities in Kumasi include financial and commercial sectors, poetry, clothing and a textile. The city is made up of a huge timber processing community which serves the needs of the people of Ghana.

Obuasi on the other hand is a mining community with a lot of big industries. Obuasi gold mine, Ashanti gold fields corporation, AngloGold Ashanti etc. which provide employment for so many Ghanaians.

Efigyase is also a community in Ashanti Region. The community is known for its major cocoa production in the country.

 

Goal

Our goal is to encourage mass adoption of Smartcash and the need for using Smartcash to realize entrepreneurial goals through SmartRewards and the many uses.

The plan

The team intend to:

Quickly spread Smartcash through meetups and workshops across various institutions and companies in the Region. Kumasi Technical University(Kumasi), Akrokerri College of Education, Nursing and Midwifery Training College (Mampong), Mobile Money Merchants, Toyota Ghana limited(Kumasi), Armajaro Cocoa Trading Limited, Insurance companies, Anglo gold Ashanti (Obuasi) etc. Also seminars will be conducted in the various communities for the youth.

Create marketing strategies for organizing meetups about Smartcash for both business owners and customers so they can learn the basics of Smartcash cryptocurrency. We will also perform follow-ups constantly to receive feedback on their experience.

Host radio lectures across the region. These lectures will be done in the local dialect of the region (TWI) to help reach the grassroots.

Encourage Mobile Money Transfer merchants to accept Smartcash in the Region.

Not leaving any stone unturned, the team shall have a database to list the number of wallets created since the start of the project.
