#431 SMARTCASH AND BLOCKCHAIN ADOPTION CAMPAIGN AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP SUMMIT IN GHANA

By digaama

Summary

The entrepreneurial process involves all the functions, activities and actions associated with perceiving opportunities and creating means to pursue them. Entrepreneurs pursue their own ideas, take risk and realize financial rewards. This project seeks to introduce SmartCash and Blockchain Technology to young entrepreneurs in Ghana starting with the three Northern Regions (Upper East, Upper West and Northern Region). This will be done through organizing conferences/Seminars in each region with attendance of not less than 100 young entrepreneurs and a radio discussion which will reach about 45,000 people with phone in sessions for questions and answers. The rationale for this project is to make SmartCash a mainstream digital currency for all, making SmartCash a common means of exchange for entrepreneurs in their daily dealings and to also make SmartCash an investment avenue and alternative source of funding for future business plans.

Description

Hello Smarties, my name is Yunus Thuahir Nazeef (known as @digaama on discord and forum). I am a crypto lover, investor and an advocate for SmartCash. I have been working closely with @shitu on his project “Introducing SmartCash to 5 Ghanaian Universities and I have also been working around the clock with @cryptosoja on his project “SmartCash for Senior High Schools”. I am submitting my first proposal “SMARTCASH AND BLOCKCHAIN ADOPTION CAMPAIGN AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP SUMMIT IN GHANA” which seeks to empower young Ghanaian entrepreneurs to adopt and use SmartCash in order to realize and achieve their entrepreneurial goals and to also attain financial freedom.

Ghana has a youthful population. Results of the 2010 Population and Housing Census indicate that, 8,662,400 out of the estimated 24,658,823 (representing 35 per cent) people in Ghana were between the 15-34 years’ age. The youth therefore constitute the vital force for national development. Entrepreneurship helps to alleviate the problem of unemployment, to overcome the issue of stagnation and to increase the competiveness and growth of businesses and industries. For this reason, most of the youth are in to entrepreneurship.

However, entreprenuers faces numerous challenges such as high cost of transaction fee with banking system, difficulty with online shopping due to currency appreciation and depreciation as well as luck of funding for future plans. This present the best opportunity to introduce SmartCash to young entrepreneurs to massively adopt and use it for their daily transactions, for purchase/sales of goods and services online as also serve as an investment avenue for funding future entrepreneurial business plans. The conferences/seminars will be held in three different regions with each region recording not less than 100 participants.

 

WORK PLAN

Young entrepreneurs who are able to attend the seminar would be trained on Blockchain Technology and SmartCash in general. They would also be trained on SmartCash wallet installation and how to advertise SmartCash on social media, within peers and the various markets. Participants would as well be trained on Network/Digital marketing, planning and executing businesses and the ways by which their entrepreneurial targets can be achieved by accumulating capital to fund future business plans through investing in SmartCash and SmartReward. Fifteen (15) participants from each region who exhibit perfect understanding of Blockchain Technology and SmartCash digital currency would selected to serve as regional Ambassadors.

ACTIVITIES

  1. There shall be a 30 minutes’ Radio presentation on SmartCash and Blockchain Technolohy in all the regions prior to the day of the conference.

 

  1. The seminar would train participants on:
  • Cryptocurrencies and its evolution.

  • Installation of SmartCash Wallets (Mobile and Web Wallets).
  • Unique features of SmartCash which include SmartRewards, SmartNodes, SmartVoting, SmartForums etc.
  • How to purchase SmartCash from local and international exchanges.
  • The benefits of using SmartCash for their day-day transactions, buying goods and services oline, payment of bills ect. over any other cryptocurrencies.

 

  1. Fifteen (15) participants from each region who exhibits perfect understanding of seminar would be selected and trained as regional Ambassadors for SmartCash. They would also establish regional clubs to promote SmartCash among their peers. This clubs would be supported with $700 worth of SmartCash to help organize more entrepreneurial training events to educate each other as to how SmartCash and SmartRewards can be used as a store of value to achieve their entrepreneurial goals.

Participants would be trained on how to achieve financial independence through Network/Digital marketing, planning and executing businesses and the ways by which their entrepreneurial targets can be achieved by accumulating capital to fund future business plans through SmartCash and SmartReward.

 

There would also be a token of $5 worth of SmartCash for the first 50 participants in each region. This will encourage attendance, allow participants to experience the speed and convenience with using SmartCash and to share that experience with others.
