    eWallet: UK Fiat-Dash Exchange - Update Thread

    eWallet Update I'm around most of the time on Discord and have talked to numerous MNOs as well as reported via Dash Watch but it's important we're all on the same page regardless of what channels we're active on! In the current banking climate, ewallet needs about £20,000 to launch. £12,000 of...

    100,000 Views on Youtube Reviewing Dash

    A small cost, potential high ROI guerrilla marketing approach like this is one of the few marketing strategies that actually makes sense in the current climate. Being scrappy and tightening the bootstraps allows us to focus on small but precise campaigns and that is what blake is offering. The...

    eWallet: UK Fiat-Dash Exchange - Update Thread

    Hi guys, proposal cycle is all done but I'm keen to keep everyone informed. Many of you will have seen me on the 3 Amigos Podcast and I really recommend it if you haven't: The banking situation is going well, it's looking like all concerns can be resolved in one swoop: - We are applying to...

    Would you like to see Dash Watch evaluate proposals?

    Great stuff @Arthyron, you're one of the heavy lifters putting effort into proposals and I can completely respect your POV. I'd agree about the separate nature but it can also be a cohesive / synergistic effort as Dash Watch have identified countless issues downstream that could have been...

    Dash Bus Blake & Direct Youtuber Outreach

    Blake Chamness also know as 'Dash Bus Blake' and 'Blake X' has recently asked on Discord how he can serve Dash better. Blake has been a long term Dash Advocate for over a year now, he's not been financially motivated and has asked for basic amounts in order to help Dash succeed. He's been a...

    We're hopeful, otherwise we'll carry on pursuing those 3 other options and then more from there. We will crack this. D-A-CH have also mentioned support from their bank and we could end up moving into Europe first, though ideally I want to focus our initial launch on the UK.

    eWallet: UK Fiat-Dash Exchange - Update Thread

    More updates, slightly less good unfortunately. We've gone through 3 payment processors now, each was initially supportive whilst we were building this but once we made the switch from Sandbox to live, the first dropped off. The second dropped off on our first large pilot purchase and the...

    Would you like to see Dash Watch evaluate proposals?

    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Dash Watch in any professional capacity, I just think this discussion would be a useful one for the community to have. Recently I have seen a demand for proposal due-diligence both from discussions with various masternode owners, proposal owners and a...

    DASH Sponsorship of the movie Crypto, a feature-film about Bitcoin

    Hi Sky, interesting project. I'd highlight that the 'unused marketing budget' you mentioned is being used elsewhere now. I think at the moment, you'd struggle to get funding at those amounts as the focus in general is on funding and building buffers for Core as well as supporting current...

    Proposal: CRYPTALRESEARCH - All you need to decide

    5 spam posts so you can post links & a pre-proposal posted after your proposal? Seems like you want to take up some sort of due-dilligence role for the network? In the example analysis you have provided your grammar, spelling and punctuation are all over the place and there is a complete lack...

    Update time! We've been doing a small volume and everything is looking good so Alex is focused on adding bells and whistles, refactoring small parts of code, documentation, that sort of thing. We've even got a QR code reader added in so you can scan your phone with your laptop camera or visa...

    Pre-Proposal: Dash & AirGap, the secure mobile wallet system

    Yeah, personally I see potential. The more of the following you meet the more likely it is I would say: - Use of escrow and split it monthly with milestones (essential really) - Offering of equity to the DAO via Dash Ventures when that is launched - Arrange partnerships with existing parts of...
