PIVX Coast 2 Coast AUSTRALIA - Revised Proposal

We are super excited to propose a strategy for cryptocurrency adoption across an entire country. Building on the foundations of the TravelbyBit point of sale (POS) network, this proposal will bring PIVX to the main stage in global adoption strategies. Although Australia has the stickiest anti-encryption in the world, it has some of the most pro-blockchain regulations, as well as state and federal support. Australia’s innovation within the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry is at an all-time high, playing host to an advanced ecosystem of innovation and adoption. This project brings together a proven team of partners and supporters to put PIVX at the forefront of digital currency adoption.

NOTE: This video is not for public posting. It is a concept only for the PIVX community proposal forum.


This proposal will:

  • Promote a WHO’S YOUR PIVX MATE campaign;
  • Education of new Pivians on how to download a PIVX wallet, distribute PIVX to your mate, and spend PIVX at local PIVX POS merchants;
  • Educating adopters on how to purchase PIVX via Australian exchanges;

Why use The TravebyBIT POS?

Why have 1770 Crypto and Where to Shop With Crypto Chosen TravelbyBIT to Partner with?

Travelers pay with their choice of digital currency

TravelbyBit’s approach is fundamentally different. They are building awareness for cryptocurrencies from the grassroots level. Our merchants facilitate genuine peer-to-peer transactions.

Using their digital wallets, travelers pay with their choice of digital currency, creating an awareness of cryptocurrencies amongst the merchants, their staff and their customers.

It’s safe, convenient and there are no bank fees.

Most of all there currently are no merchant fees

Customers pay in cryptocurrency

Merchants can choose to receive payment in crypto or fiat currency

Ultiamtely 1770 Crypto, Where to Shop with Crypto and TravelbyBIT’s vision is that merchants around Australia will begin to receive payment exclusively in cryptocurrencies, use it to pay for business supplies and even pay their staff in crypto.

The use of this two-step system of adopting Crypto to Fiat transactions first will create greater merchant acceptance than straight up P2P implementation.

The POINT OF SALE interface

Weblink application so can be used on any device and across multiple devises

The back-end link nominates the merchant bank account or nominated crypto wallet

Settlements are next business day when converting to fiat as it passes through the fiat banking

Email Payments Requests

The Point of Sale system enables merchants to easily take online bookings and payments

Hi fellow Pivians and MN hosts.

Keen for some feed back on the proposal.

We bring together a team with a passion for adoption, education, marketing, collaboration and a track record for success in gaining consistent international coverage and success.

Thank you G

Love this! A great plan to paint Australia Purple! Once it takes off, we can pull in New Zealand and other counties near by and spread from there! Great work all!

Overall I like the proposal. Seems expensive though. Also light on details. I think it is OK to say something like 'Ideally we want each recipient to create a Masternode and spend the rewards' but it is hard to provide transparency that way. Need to see a break down on how many PIV is request in total and per cycle. My sense is that it is too much too fast to gain wide support. Would be better to do smaller steps maybe?

It is a 12-month project - so I can see this as reasonable time scope and I assume budgets will reflect the work per phase and include lots of skin-in-the-game from those on the ground. @Gordon1770 and @Samfransisco - Leave the budget at the top as TBD - but feel free to add a draft budget in the post - then we all can see the scope along with alongside cost estimates. From the drafts I've seen - for a comprehensive integrated marketing campaign, it's more than reasonable, but for many who have never experienced this level of a campaign it will seem "expensive." It's a delicate dance at this stage of the project - but I think it time to go big! I agree with Eric on more details - but maybe a google doc. As we've seen - many of our ideas get swooped up but the bigger budget projects - so I understand not showing all the cards in public. You have my support - however, I can help!

Ya. The whole 'Provision of Four PIVX masternodes' makes it sound like the funding is at the very least 10K PIV per month for 4 months. I am glad to hear this is stretched out over 12 months, and that there will be phases/milestones along the way. Sounds more promising now.

Just a note on costs - to tap into a network around travelbybit will come at a cost. Much of the work has been built from investment and support by communities including LTC, NEM, Binance, DASH, and even our GOVT. For the communities of 1770, Fremantle, and others forming around TravelbyBIT a lot of work is being done by ambassadors for adoption for little or no pay. The results for us are worth all the effort - Here is the latest that we all have to support each step of our efforts. Media like this costs more than any of us can afford to pay for. https://nuggetsnews.com.au/travelbybit-hooks-major-australian-supermarket-up-with-cryptocurrency-payment-support/

Thanks Erick , expensive I don’t think , what I believe is the exposure, use case, and transactions we will see is priceless . Great to have the best tech and product but we need it to be spent .

Exactly Gordon , other communities have paid 20-50 x for exposure and acceptance like this .

Hi fellow Pivians we have taken on board the communities comments and feed back and have posted up a revised proposal to bring together a gun team to deliver the PIVX Cost 2 Coast AU project. We hope you are excited about it as we are !!

This is massive, but it is the next step in the Ambassador vision of grassroots engagement towards larger regional adoption. We've had such great relations with our Auzzie family and with the massive network already prepared, this seems like a no brainer. With a new PIVXSprots partnership with Maighan (Possible a return for Tarnea) as well and 2 amazing Ambassadors and tools and other outreach hubs, this will rock! Ya, ya, the cost is a lot, but turning a country Purple will be world news for PIVX and a huge leap ahead of many other top 20 projects. We have saved $10000s over the 2.5 years not spending on big marketing, advertising, etc. It's time to balance this project out with a strong focus on major marketing initiatives. It's also nice to have strong ties back to other core PIVians who have called Australia home in the past. I'll be throwing a lot of skin-in-the-game here. Nice work all!
