I have never raised my voice in this way during the past 1.5 years I have been working for the Dash DAO, but due to the current circumstances it might be necessary. You, as the decision-makers of our governance, have decided to give funds to a long term project I started in the beginning of 2018, the Dash Embassy D-A-CH. It took the team and me round about 1 year to built up a reputation in the media and economy in the DACH region, which is necessary for our overall mission: Adoption of Dash as a means of payment in the center of Europe.
Our efforts from the past 12 month are beginning to pay off now more than ever before:
Bitcoin(.)de - BTC marketplace with over 750,000 customers in Europe
Bitwala - BTC banking with over 40,000 customers in Germany
Change - Wallet with FIAT gateway with over 20,000 customers in UK, EST, ROU
Salamantex - POS terminal for AT and Asia with over 500 pre-orders
Värdex - ATM company with over 25 machines in Switzerland
PosBill - Cashier system with over 10,000 merchants
For details please have a look at our current reporting: https://sites.google.com/dash-embassy.org/reports/january-2019
In our opinion the last one (PosBill) is a door opener to other cashier systems such as Orderbird, SumUp, Pepperkorn, Vectron and many more. This is why we added them to our internal integration pipeline and will start to get in contact soon, provided that we will get funded again. After not being funded (insufficient funds) for several times, abstaining from salaries several times and being at personal financial risks in the past and right now I won’t be able to keep up the work without getting funded anymore. This is the reason why we added “crucial funding or broke” to the title of our proposal.
If we do not get funded, our team will have to dissolve and we have to stop all projects.
Thank you for your time and thank you for the support in the past.
