Dear Masternodes, dear Dash Community This "Pre"-proposal aims to scale, grow and accelerate merchant adoption and consumer activation to the next level. The goal is to establish and push partnerships on all payment verticals, create win-win cooperation for Dash and our partners, coordinate operational execution, integrations and to streamline efforts with other Dash teams around the globe. What you will get: Build use cases for various industries with Dash integrations and easy Dash-fiat conversions. Proactive campaigns with selected merchants and industries, esp. POS systems, chains & multi-merchant platforms, banks and exchanges, travel platforms and other partners. Coordinating sales and integration as well as marketing activities efficiently with other teams. Leveraging local networks: Knowing people is the low hanging fruit to starting partnerships. Being on the ground all around Asia, we can leverage our amazing network with local, regional and global companies as well as governments. Use our local presence in Asia to give Dash exposure at conferences and events in a cost effective way. We aim to create best practices and easy integration scenarios for various industries to enter partnerships with POS systems, chains & multi-merchant platforms, banks and exchanges, travel platforms and other partners to share it with other teams. Goals: Bring Dash to large hotel platforms with combined more than 1 million hotels Connect Dash with chains of 15k+ branches Integrate Dash into POS systems with 10k+ merchants Enable easy and legal remittance options around Asia Engage with regulators around Asia Push for further Dash adoption on exchanges Actively approach new services and partners What we have done already and why we are the right team: Our efforts for Dash have initially launched in Thailand. As most of you have probably seen, our team has established a healthy Dash ecosystem in thailand over the past 8 months and recently started to expand beyond Thailand to Asian and global markets. This proposal is now driven by the Dash Thailand team and partners to build up on this success.
