SmartSundays May-June 2018 report
by Pest

Hi all!
Our project of a month of SmartSundays is over an here’s a short report of what we managed:

We created community!
Before this proposal we did not have a SmartCash community in Mexico City. For me this was important because I need someone to work with on future projects.

We hosted 4 SmartSunday meetups, one with a livestream and one with a use case of SmartCash!
The turn up wasn’t what we wanted but we had chance to try out a few additions to the format, such as a using a facebook live stream to reach people. At the last SmartSunday we asked Burger San, one of our mechants that now accept SmartCash, to come and sell burgers for SmartCash. This worked great! We got an amazing feedback from people especially Angel Montiel from Speedcubes.mx was very vocal about how great it was to see the system working.

We translated the webwallet to Spanish!
Just waiting for the last read through and expect to upload it the next days.

We were on the air live!
Me and (mostly) Ignacio (he was on fire!) appeared on Bull Terrier FM’s live morning show.

We have new merchants accepting SmartCash!
You can now buy Burgers(Bruger San, https://www.facebook.com/BurgerSanSan/), Have T-shirts etc. screen printed (Night Rider Impresiones, they ship internationally, https://www.facebook.com/NightRider/), get tattooed (Allan Muerto, https://www.facebook.com/muertodefectuoso), get some food coffee or a beer in a cafe(La Logia Negra and Elvis bar)

Had SmartCash shilled on a youtube channel with 40k followers (LeganM10 aka Angel Montiel Speedcubes.mx, https://www.youtube.com/user/leganm10)

**Handed out SmarCash T-shirts and bandannas at the Zocalo (main square) in Mexico City for the Mexico-Germany world cup football match, hopefully getting people wearing it on national tv!

Twitter SmartCash giveaway campaign.
This did not work as well as we thought, so we will not do this again.

Still to come:
There is another radio in Queretaro that wants us to appear on air.
Still nothing final.

Problems:
Need fiat gateway BADLY for merchants!
This is crucial. Without this most merchants will not accept SmartCash. The thing is here people are VERY
fond of their cash in hand and we had a hard time convincing the merchants that its a good idea to accept SmartCash when they can’t go pay rent or buy material later.

Future:
We are talking with Angel Montiel aka Legan10M from Speedcubes.mx, about sponsoring the Rubiks cube world championship and a guiness record attemp next year. He is a big fan of SmartCash.

More tattoo artists are interested :smiley:

After the SmartSundays we have learned that the best way forward will be to do a project that:

  1. will get a lot of people together in one place where
  2. they can only spend SmartCash, buying from
  3. a presence of many SmartCash accepting merchants
  4. on a regular basis

So we are working on a plan to make this happen, and will upload a pre proposal sometime in August.

Greetings and many many thanks for your support!
