Monthly conferences about cryptocurrency and Dash in Kiev and other cities of Ukraine. The updates on proposal will be posted on this thread (Ukrainian DASH community). Key points: 3 months frequency of conferences: monthly price: 20 DASH proof of work (photos, videos) on twitter and separate forum thread events calendar and results on a website long-term commitment Progress: - first meetup was held on April 8th at Reikartz Zhytomyr (Zhytomyr) - report - second meetup was held on April 20th at Hub 4.0 (Kiev) - report - third meetup was held on April 26th at 1900Coworking (Kiev) - report - forth meetup was held on June 17 at Optima Vinnitsia (Vinnitsia) - report Dash presentations that were used: 1 version 2 version Proposal. My actual proposal is related to further expansion of our community and bringing the awareness of Dash and upcoming Dash Evolution. In this case my partner (@slava_m) and I are planning to create conferences throughout Ukraine every month regardless cryptocurrencies, Dash in particular. We’re currently working together on a few big projects that are related to Blockchain and cryptocurrency space in general. One of those projects soon will be announced to the Dash community. I bet you’re going to love it. Location. All of this will be done in Kiev first, which is the capital of the largest country in Europe. We have quite big Blockchain-related community which is growing exponentially. For the last year I had a chance to meet with Vlad Zamfir (one of the leading Ethereum researchers and developers), Joseph Poon and Thaddeus Dryja (the guys who work on Lightning Network), Ariel Gabizon (one of the engineers at ZCash) and a lot more interesting individuals who changed me a lot. So for those who wasn’t sure of Ukrainian’s involvement in this space, believe me it is strong. In any case, I want to make a long-term commitment with Dash because I really adore this community and I believe this cryptocurrency will be the one that will go to the masses with the help of all of us at DashNation. Long-term vision: start from Kiev, then move to other large cities in Ukraine. Verification: photos, blog posts and videos will be provided to verify my work. You can follow all of my history on medium, twitter. Events calendar: a website will be used to announce all of the events. Evaluation: surveys or feedback from attendees will be a method of evaluation of the work that was done. It also can be used for future improvements. Timing: April-June (3 months) in Ukraine. Price: 20 DASH/month, 5 DASH reimbursement included (from the first month). The rise of Dash's price is phenomenal, hence I decided to create a budget allocation that a lot of you asked for. For those who don’t know yet one of the masternodes owner GuerraDiValute and me agreed to have a $1200/month limit for this proposal. All of the expenses are going to be used in the following way: 1. Expenditures on conference hall: Rent itself (befirst.com.ua conference hall) – $350. Catering – included 2. Printed material costs: Booklets about DASH and how it works (210 х 297 mm) – $30 per 1000 booklets Banners – $100 for 2 banners Posters for advertisement (420 x 598 mm) – $50 per 100 posters 3. Advertising: Official Facebook events advertising - $300 4. Salary - $300 5. Extra funds: Dash giveaway - $200 Dash attributes (T-shirts, badges or stickers) - $200 The rest - donation to Dash network About me. My name is Dmitriy Baimuratov. I'm from Kiev, Ukraine. Currently I'm graduating university as a software engineer (3 months left) which is kind of cool. However I figured out that programming is not what I want to dedicate my life to. At the same time for the last 1.5 years I became involved with cryptocurrencies and truly enjoy public speaking. So the combination of two are a sweet spot for me. I always wanted to be a part of some really amazing project. However it was a struggle to find something that has a potential to get crypto to the masses, until I saw Dash Evolution in action by Amanda B Johnson. I knew about Dash for some time but it’s that visual representation of a platform that made me convinced that I want to be a part of this journey 100%. I don’t want to write a ton of info about me and how I came up to Dash, you can just read my latest blog post right here. P.S. The proposal is updated from weekly meetups to monthly conferences.
