#662 Meetups and Videos for Latin America Season 3

By thewalk_er


This is a continuation of the Proposal “Videos and Social Media in Spanish for Latin America 2.0”, now I am planning to visit Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Guatemala, to continue evangelizing SmartCash with Meetups, videos of interviews, videos of events, and keep managing existing social media channels in Spanish.


This is a continuation of the Previously Approved Proposal “Videos and Social Media in Spanish for Latin America 2.0”

Hello Smarties,

I am Ignacio Figueroa a.k.a @thewalk_er I live in Mexico, and I have been working in the SmartCash community for 10 months now, helping to spread the word about SmartCash in Latin America.


Milestones and Goals Achieved

In the last 8 months I have been producing 50 informative videos, meetups, tutorials and interviews on several events in the Youtube Channel “SmartVlog”




Other activities include managing social media channels and community service to the new people.


Thanks to the community I have been traveling to several cities in Latin America, for Meetups, SmartCash event and for making interviews in the following cities.


  • Acapulco, Mexico (Anarkapulco and Anarkaforko events)
  • Guadalajara, Mexico (Talent Land)
  • Cancun, Mexico
  • Mexico City
  • Monterrey, Mexico
  • Queretaro, Mexico
  • San Salvador, El Salvador
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • Caracas, Venezuela
  • Valencia, Venezuela
  • San Jose, Costa Rica
  • Jaco, Costa Rica


I have helped to build the social media in Spanish starting from Mexico and extending it to Latin America.

  • Facebook 1827 members
  • Twitter: 391 followers
  • Telegram:418 members

All these efforts had let us to create communities in every country visited, and increased substantially the presence of SmartCash in the Spanish speaking countries.




Having a population of 650 Million people living in all Latin America, most of them are still new to this technology, the blockchain.

Spanish is the Second most used language in the world only after Mandarin by native speakers.


So I am ready to continue this effort, now with the expansion to four more countries.

  • Argentina   (September)
  • Colombia    (October)
  • Peru              (November)
  • Guatemala (December)



The proposal includes the following but not limited to:


Video Production



• Continue with the production of SmartVlog YouTube Channel and delivering 7 videos per month

• 50% of all the income from the previous proposal went directly on buying new equipment such as Professional Video Cameras, Audio Systems, wireless microphones, recorders, Lighting, Livestreaming Equipment, and Hardware for Post Production.

• Record the events, make the interviews and make livestreaming on social media.



• 2 meetups in every country visited to talk about SmartCash.

• To assist every event in Mexico related with SmartCash to record and create the content for promotion.


Social Media

• To keep managing the Mexico Group for Facebook with a total of 1,826 community members.

• To keep Managing the Twitter account for Mexico and the WhatsApp group.

• Managing the community is a challenge since this has to be done in a very respectful way and giving a follow up on all the questions that might rise.

-A constant follow up on this social media is key for bringing more users to the platform.

• Graphics Design needed for Facebook and Twitter




4 Months, starting in September through December 2018

One country per month



Amount Breakdown


Video Production

  • 134 hours per month on pre-production, traveling, production and post-production.
    Price per hour $18.00 USD (it includes wages and equipment previously mentioned)
    Video Production= 134*18 =$2,412 USD

                      (I have reduced the price on video production -18% from the previous proposal)


Air travel expenses per month =$1200 USD (One trip per month to a different country)


Hotel, food and local transportation $700 USD


Social Media Management

• 40 hours per month on social media management at $0 USD per hour

Subtotal $0 USD (This was a paid activity in the previous Proposal)


Meetups Giveaways

Faucets $500 USD (100 people, $5 USD each)

No expenses on rental spaces, meetings can be done in open places, schools, universities or restaurants.

SubTotal $4,812 USD per month


Total $19,248 USD

Please note, that with the same amount approved previously I am adding 1 more video per month, charging $0 on Social Media Management and reduced the Video Production costs by -18%.


So offering more results at reduced price, and a very competitive budget, this is the way to maintain the trust in the community by giving more.


Payments are due at the end of every month after delivering the report.

Videos are uploaded as soon as are edited.

Social Media Management its run 7 days a week.


By voting YES on this proposal you are giving the opportunity to many to know about our project in Latin America.

    Ignacio, it will be great if you could find a way to get more subscribers to your Youtube channel. I think it will help you to get more support for your proposal. Good luck

    thewalk_er 08/20/2018 17:24

    Yes good point, I will consider your comment and thanks.

    I do not understand why after doing an outstanding job, showing positive results and dedicating so much time and effort to this work, @thewalk_er does not get a positive trend in the approval of his project to continue with his work, even more so when he is reducing costs, I really see no reason not to vote in favor. I hope you get more support and keep bringing SmartCash to all corners of Latin America.

    Thanks Adrian for your words, this is decentralization, and the community has the final decision, good vives !

    Hello Ignacio! Good proposal. I think the community need to appreciate more your work and efforts. Maybe the low price of SmartCash influence in the votes. They are looking for proposals with low budget. Good luck! Still we have to wait until 1º september. Maybe other members in the community vote YES.

    thewalk_er 08/30/2018 01:05

    Yes, well we will see, there is always time to submit another one. Greetings Yoditar!
