Why this is categorized as "Technical" ?

Business Development is a technical issue that need Expertises and Analysis not only Marketing or Community Outreach

idea: focusing on merchants could be not what the consumer demand is. That consumer demand is not to spend Dash--since they want to save it, and spend their higher-inflation money (ghana cedi). So idea: to focus on a savings campaign

Without creating Usability, It will be hard for someone to Save... In the process of getting more Merchants, We will train them on how to accept and benefit of saving Dash over Ghanaian Cedis
