    I just had this Idea and it may be a brainfart but I wanted to float it here anyway.

    How about putting into the budget system a small amount, lets say 200 dash a month. that is accumulated by the foundation until Christmas every year. So the pot might reach 2400 dash over the span of the year (can be less per month ofcource).

    Then everyone that is interested in dash can vote on all and any relatively small projects that this 2400 dash might be able to buy. In a reddit upvote kind of way.

    It is even possible to split it with the top 3 or more/less

    This way more people can participate in Dash ecosystem and it might just be really fun to see what kind of Ideas come from the internets every Christmas.

    It might sponsor a competition of some sorts or what ever anyone can come up with. The Possibility's are endless. And I think the outcome could benefit us way more than what we would be sacrificing.

    Might be good PR also :)

    What do you guys think ?

    Edit: I will chip in the 5 dash for a proposal if there is any grounds for this Idea ;)

    uh.... just start a proposal for the small project and get the funds yourself

    Soon there won't be enough DASH to go around and only the TOP voted items are going to get paid

    I vote NO here........

    Didnt say that I would get the funds, the foundation would get it. Evan or anybody that is trusted to make a Christmas miracle happen.

    Edit: Ah I get it, you think that I should personally acquire the collective thought of the internet and make a proposal for my self.. .. you are not getting the Idea

    Dont really understand what you are saying here ? yes the top upvoted projects would be funded. (voted by everyone that likes dash)

    keep in mind that this is an Idea in development Blue
    maybe it would be possible to have like a top 10 proposals that the MN´s can vote on 3 to materialize.

    although that is sortof ruining the Idea I just put here to begin with. Im open for alterations.. thats why I created this thread :)

    Lol But it made it into the Indipendent, that is some PR.. This is exactly what I would want from this project some PR no matter how silly.

    It is the internet for gods sake!
    Lets have some fun with it !

    But maybe it is good to have some kind of barriers for stupidity, like an MN filter or foundation filter, some would argue that a filter would not be as good PR
    Im counting on that we could downvote the stupid ones but there is the possibility that the internet will win that fight :p
    Then maybe a vote of the council could neg the most ridiculous ones ?

    200 was just some arbitrary number I came up with .. It could be 100, 50 or 10 dash per month .. does not matter.

    Edit: I just pitched the Idea to my room mate and he already knew about Boaty Mc Boatface .. just saying..PR, how many people actually know what Dash is ? Allot more people now know that NERC actually existe, becorse of that name its boat now has

    Can you think of a number that a PR campaign would cost so that my room mate would know about Dash without me telling him about it ? ..Shitloads, thats it .. just saying dont underestimate the power of crowd
