We have been promoting cryptocurrencies in our community since February of 2017, and SmartCash specifically, since December 2017. Last year, we enjoyed considerable returns on our initial investments with BTC, LTC, & ETH. In December, after a few meetings with veteran community-member @letitbegood, we decided to reinvest our profits into the SmartCash community. Once he introduced us to the SmartCash website, we were hooked. Earlier this week, we just finished setting up our first SmartNode! 


We are diligent, driven, and hard-working people, with deep roots in the local community. We take pleasure in our work, and only choose projects that personally stimulate us, that way we stay motivated and enthusiastic throughout the entire project. We believe cryptocurrency is the way of the future. We believe in SmartCash.

Meetings & Seminars

Carry out weekly meetings and monthly seminars in different cities (Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Marina Del Rey, Manhattan Beach, Malibu).

Bring together cryptocurrency enthusiasts and discuss  the Blockchain and SmartCash.

We also plan to educate new enthusiasts, and people still ignorant to the crypto world.


-Encourage the use of SmartCash as a payment method in small chains of businesses in Venice Beach.

-Train the owners and managers of businesses in the use of SmartCash as a method of payment.

-Promote SmartCash to individuals, businesses, and independent vendors.


At each meeting we will spend the last 15 minutes creating online wallets for first-time visitors.

Also, we will send 10 SMART to the newly created wallets. This will encourage the new SMART community members to engage, use, and contribute back to the SmartCash community on a regular basis.


-Number of expected participants will be 10 - 50 per session

-1 session per week, 4 districts per month. [10+ capacity venue]

-1 Seminar per month, in a designated district. [50+ capacity venue]

-Distribution of T-Shirts, key-rings, keychains, stickers, hats, business cards, and flyers.

@mbr.cngl and I are simply recreating the method in which we were introduced to SmartCash by @letitbegood, but on a larger scale. Right now we hold two informal meetings a month. One is in Santa Monica, CA, where we were first introduced to SmartCash, and the other is in Venice Beach. We discuss related topics like blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, politics, and of course, our local community.


What marketing channel will be used?

Our main communication channel will be local newspapers, social media, and social events.  We will also put a large focus on speaking to individuals on the boardwalk, face to face, and inform them on the benefits of SmartCash, the SmartHive, and general blockchain technology. We will continue collaborating with the SmartCash community online through Discord, and promote weekly events, in order to generate interaction on social media platforms that are popular in the area like Snapchat [headquarters located on the Venice Beach boardwalk], Instagram, and Twitter. We will utilize popular online forums known only to the beach community members like the online forum, “Venice 411”. We will also promote our meetings in the two local newspapers, “Yo! Venice” and, “The Argonaut”.



Our intention is to spread awareness about SmartCash, Blockchain Technology, and the benefits of cryptocurrency in general. Venice is one of the most visited tourist locations in the world. Millions of people from all corners of the planet visit the boardwalk, year round. We seek funding for a solid 6 month campaign and plan to welcome at least 24 new businesses, 18 independent vendors, and at least 100 new (active) members into the SmartCash community.
