Summary: Enable seamless, anonymous Dash bill payments to over 45,000 billers on the Australian BPAY bill payment network, as well as instant Dash to Fiat conversion to all Australian Bank accounts; by integrating Dash with Living Room of Satoshi. Purpose: Paying bills is a very accessible and natural use-case for Dash. It's something almost everybody does every week, and is a great answer to the newcomer question "What can I do with Dash?". Allowing direct bill payments and bank transfers with Dash is a sure way to increase its real-world utility, raise its profile as a useful currency and increase its value. Background: Since 2013, Living Room of Satoshi has been connected to the Australian BPAY payments network, the largest bill payments network in the country. It is used by virtually all medium to large business, and allows bitcoin holders to pay over 45,000 billers instantly without registering, and even without creating a login on the Living Room of Satoshi website. In 2014, Living Room of Satoshi added direct bitcoin-fiat conversions, with payment available to any Australian bank account, quickly and without any registration required. We experimented with adding a few altcoins in 2016 (Litecoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum), but it soon became clear that adoption wasn't there, because these coins were never designed to function as useful currencies in real world payment scenarios. Dash is different. We feel strongly that removing support for these altcoins, and baking in Dash support as a first class alternative to Bitcoin is the perfect use-case for a currency focused on being digital cash.

About Living Room of Satoshi: Living Room of Satoshi launched in May 2014 as a service that enables payment of any Australian bill using bitcoin; including phone bills, electricity bills, school fees, credit card and tax payments, and fiat bank transfers.

It has a high profile and excellent reputation among bitcoin users. Some statistics: We process over $65,000 per week in everyday bill payments using bitcoin We've paid over $3 million in bills and growing rapidly Users pay a diverse range of bills including Credit Cards, Electricity, Rent.

Removal of alt-currencies Ether, Doge, Litecoin We'll remove all the other alt-currencies we support, and make a big deal about it I predict this will make some waves in alt-coin communities, as well as make for an interesting talking point for both crypto news sites and traditional finance journals. 5. Media releases and interviews We have a long history of media coverage for any changes we make to our service, and can leverage our contacts to make sure the Dash integration gets news coverage. For example, here are some of the places we've appeared: https://bitcoinmagazine.com/20847/l...coin-payment-service-australian-bank-account/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/australia-can-now-pay-anyone-bitcoin/ http://cointelegraph.com/news/11456...omains-anonymous-hacker-doxes-silk-road-judge http://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-bill-payment-services-go-international/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/australian-bitcoin-payments-startup-hits-1-million-milestone/ http://bravenewcoin.com/news/after-a-bumpy-road-australia-still-embraces-bitcoin-bill-payments/ https://coinreport.net/australian-b...ing-room-of-satoshi-surpasses-1-million-mark/ http://www.startupsmart.com.au/advi...f-a-plan-to-grow-cryptocurrency-in-australia/ http://australianfintech.com.au/australian-startup-rewards-customers-paying-bills-with-bitcoin/ http://www.cio.com.au/article/572273/interview-daniel-alexiuc-living-room-satoshi We've found that to get good media traction, you need to present a compelling story. We really think that this is a story the media will be interested in. InstantPay is a compelling feature for bill payments and bank transfers. Adding alt-coin support is something lots of crypto sites do every day, but deciding to remove support for existing alt-coins in favour of Dash presents an interesting narrative, and will present lots of opportunity to explain why Dash is much more suitable for use in real world payments than the myriad of alt-coins available. Schedule: 4 weeks to integrate Dash to the Living Room of Satoshi website, and remove other alt currencies. This will then be followed by press releases and media interviews. 2 weeks to integrate Dash to existing API. 4-6 weeks to complete mobile app. Budget: 1000 Dash - to setup a new master node. As an already operational cryptocurrency payment service, we have a clear path of how to make this all work, and so are not interested in liquidating Dash from the budget to Fiat to fund development. The 1000 Dash will be solely used to setup and run a new master node, which will allow us to participate in voting and have a genuine stake in the Dash network. Conclusion: We're genuinely excited by the possibilities of Dash for real-world bill payments, and look forward to seeing how much media exposure we can generate, as well as how much real world adoption of Dash we can drive.
