Mexico and its Southeast
Mexico is a country with a population of at least 119 million habitants. 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_Can (Agrocultural Engineer), @Mich.sunza (Developement and Business Innovation Engineer, SME administration Degree) 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 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 to be funded by SMART HIVE because of our enthusiasm, willpower and the work already done.
In fact this is an Extension of our previous proposal:
This previous work can be consulted at:
In this extension we will keep the weekly SmartFriday meet up adding a 1 extra meet up for merchants.
In this meet up we will make a specialized program for merchants, explaining and exposing the positive points when smartcash is accepted as payment method, distribute SmartCash t-shirts, merchant stickers and keychains.
And also adding marketing on Facebook, yes cryptocurrency adds are banned on Facebook, but it exists some local groups with more than 200k members in total. Where you can pay for pin up your product/service or whatever you want to put as first sight content. we are estimating 500 USD per month for this kind of advertising. (1st Month have been already paid to ensure the exposure)

Here you have the specific monthly breakdown.
We 3 (@eiky, @mich.sunza @oucan) we are part of Team SmartCash Mexico with The_walker and @Pest, in my case @oucan I help with the customer service of SmartCash social networks.
Together we have carried out at least 17 meet ups in total thanks to your support with a great attendance of at least 450 people in total, we dedicate our own time and resources to the promotion of SmartCash in our region. We have also funded 2 meet ups in Guadalajara.
We have participated in talent land as speakers and staff reaching 30k collateral people and direct speaking 2 000 people by direct speech during the event.

What marketing channel will be used?
Our main communication channel will be facebook local groups in addition of 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 we ran out uf them, 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. Also we will fund other user meet ups if possible.
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 keep pushing goods or service businesses to accept SmartCash as a payment method in Cancun. We are looking for a 3 months funding. ( 24 150 USD for 3 months)
