Marketing Plan

What we want to achieve is that Ark starts to grow, and for this the first meetup will be held
at the Golix Offices(An exchange) where the participants will be provided with information pertinent to the
advances and uses of Ark, in a space where we can discuss some opinions and clarify any
doubt about it. Mention will be made of the social networks and the official sites of Ark,
through which they can track the progress they are making, in the same way they will be
instructed on the download of the official Ark wallet.

Marketing Impact

The meetup is organized to serve approximately 15-50 people. This first meetup, will start a series of meetups and subsequent events based on different marketing and educational strategies in order to promote Ark for their respective adoption and development of projects that are aligned with Ark's vision.

There was a typo in the original proposal that had another coins name in it. This leads to suspicion that the proposer is simply copying & pasting proposals for multiple coins hoping to get some free crypto. The proposer also is not in the Ark Slack so I could not question him/her about their proposal. If the proposer is serious about submitting a proposal for Ark then I'd advise producing product first, holding the meetup, providing evidence, then seeking reimbursement.

Spotted the edit where the first line said "Decred" instead of Ark before; this is part of a mass proposal money grab campaign for poor quality outreach.

Purported exchange where this would take place also has next to no volume overall.

Will be to difficult for the board to verify proper use of funds, and the there is no use case defined by the proposal that will benefit the development of the ARK ecosystem
