    If my high-school classes are still kept in my memory -- "Cose'e" -- is Italian, not Spanish. "Que es" Dash or "Lo que es" Dash would be Spanish, no? fernando (any other Spanish speaking people -- I hate bothering Fernando with every little thingy :sad: ) what say you?

    Other than nitpicking that might be wrong, nice work alex-ru!

    (also, a full title, description in Spanish will go long way: "DASH es una moneda digital..." etc.)

    Lot's of pain, but finally done:

    Dash is good, from both sides!

    New addition for Dash video-bank will let you finalize your video in professional 3D ending.

    Well, I got some constructive criticism about last videos for video-bank: ("I would not put more work into these video library, so far nobody used any, I think it is good we have them but should move on to other things"). So I'd like to clarify my position about this video-bank production.

    In fact I would say the same thing (too much, no need so much of them now) if I was an external observer. But when you are inside it - some things look different:

    1. The same story was with my photo-bank - about 1 year nobody used it and now these pictures are in more than half Dash articles (in Russia at least). So the presence of some assets incentives people using it - but it may take some time - lucky they do not become obsolete and can be useful for many years! (we can consider them as a kind of long-term investment).
    2. I able to produce them relatively cheap - but still video production (any) is very time consuming process! Also - I'm not a professional and it isn't easy for me to do this work occasionally, "on demand". There is lots of production complexity - it isn’t easy for me doing it «once a month/year» - special software, several plugins, incompatible versions and all this stuff.

    So I am going to work with video-bank's filling some more time and than don’t come back to this task at least a year. :) Hope you will trust me with this.

    I really hope it will help (as Dash photos already have done) to incentivize community video-production activity - we do need dozens of new Dash- videos, bloggers.

    For example, we already have Russian (in Kazakhstan in fact) video blogger Julin GYS
    She already produced 18 videos about Dash (using video-bank elements also):
    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrEDW7xf-Fkcw5nn8fbVk2pAlxSiq6bzI

    I hope that we will attract many new video-bloggers finally (and not only Russian! ;)) to promote Dash

    Hey everybody!

    So, more than a half of this budget was spent (110 DASH remain) - I'm open for critics about the way I've done it. :)

    I'm taking a little break now - there's no active projects in my current timeline.

    I'd like to remind that I am open for all kinds of participation with other community members, if some of you have:
    1. Some cool scripts,
    2. Some great talents who can help to produce promos for Dash project,
    3. Some interesting request how I could help with your Dash promotional initiatives.
    4. ...

    14. 03.10.2016 Reimbursement of photo-production expenses: big update (> 150 new pictures!!!) of Alex-ru: DASH photo-bank (unofficial) - 49 USD (4.2 DASH)

    Let me remind (some people accuse me of working for the money from Dash budget) that I always work for free for Dash Project!
    All these Reimbursements cover only my direct production expenses (templates, videos, music, ... and so on - those I inevitably have to buy to get results)).
    But if somebody still want to donate my efforts - just send your donations to my DASH address: : XxG6WRPA5ef767m37eEbGjK8T1UPAVGdCq
    Thanks!
