    Proposal name:

    Dash @ Digital Finance Conference 2017 Frankfurt, Germany

    Date: November 13th 2017

    gobject vote-many 7dea292747c7ff08f8e93c9abfed9b443d8066f707f2806e6738a0a05edfc226 funding yes


    Description:


    Dash as Main Sponsor of the Digital Finance Conference 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany



    This is who I am:


    My name is Fabio Bossi, aka Macno on Bitcointalk and Dash Nation and Cowan on the Dash.org forum. I am a former fund manager from Germany who is into Crypto since 2011. I discovered Dash in April of 2014 and started following it and blogging about it:

    http://bavaria-for-ron-paul.blogspot.de/2014/05/darkwallet-und-darkcoin.html

    https://steemit.com/deutsch/@fabio/dash-force-news-auf-deutsch-gestartet



    These are my current Dash-Projects:


    About two weeks ago, I started the German Dash Force News Section in cooperation with Mark Mason (aka @nibiruhybrid) and translated the website with my friend and colleague Jan Heinrich Meyer (aka @essra). Now we are translating the Dash Force News articles on an ongoing base and started to manage the social media channels:


    https://www.dashforcenews.com/de/

    https://www.facebook.com/dashforcenewsde/

    https://twitter.com/DashForceNewsDE

    https://steemit.com/@dashforcenews-de



    This is what this proposal is about:


    I recently got a call from Thorsten Pörschmann (https://www.xing.com/profile/Thorsten_Poerschmann), a good friend of mine from my fund management days, now working for one of the leading german financial information companies, Drescher & Cie (https://drescher-cie.de/). Thorsten is one of the very few former colleagues who took Bitcoin seriously from early on and is now responsible for everything Fintech at Drescher. He recently appeared in two podcasts of the german Digital Business magazine T3N:


    http://t3n.de/news/investieren-in-ethereum-bitcoin-835541/ (Cryptoinvestments in general)

    http://t3n.de/news/icos-token-sale-startup-finanzierung-3-838898/ (ICOs)


    He told me about a high level Digital Finance conference he is organizing and asked me whether I knew a possible speaker from the Cryptocurrency Industry. I told him about the Dash-DAO and a possible sponsorship. We both agreed this would flabbergast the german financial industry.


    So I organized a meeting yesterday in Hamburg, with Thorsten Pörschmann, Jan Heinrich Meyer and Tungfa (Dash Core), to discuss the idea. We all agreed that the project would have an enormous impact and will increase the awareness and reputation of Dash in the german finance industry to a level no other cryptocurrency has at the moment.



    These are the conference-facts:


    Name: Digital Finance Conference 2017

    Venue: Museum of Communication || Frankurt Germany || http://www.mfk-frankfurt.de/

    Date: November 13th 2017 || 9 am to 4:45 pm

    Host: Drescher & Cie Consult || https://drescher-cie.de/

    Attendees: 150 managers of major german asset management companies



    This is what we can get out of the conference for Dash:


    - 1h slot for a presentation of Dash in front of 150 managers of major german asset management companies

    - Dash-Logo in invitation mail (17.000 contacts)

    - Dash-Logo on event-ticket

    - Dash-Infoflyer on every seat of the Venue

    - Professional video-recording of the presentation (hosted on https://drescher-cie.de/)

    - Video-link in follow-up e-mail (17.000 contacts)

    - Dash-Booth in the conference foyer (workshop)



    This is what we need to do this (budget):


    150 Dash for: Sponsoring-Fee, Preparation, Travel-Costs, Hotel, Flyer, Roll-Up, Concept (Presentation), Orga Team.

    +5 Dash proposal fee re-imbursement


    __


    As german native speaker, long time follower of Dash and finance expert, I volunteered to hold the presentation, but maybe we can even arrange a live stream with some Core member.

    I don't require any speaker fee, maybe some travelling expenses if the budget allows. All budget will be needed and spent on external and processing costs. All details, an agenda plus an open calculation will be published here soon.


    Since Drescher & Cie needs our commitment within August, we need a general GO on the budget as soon as possible to get the project on track.


    A regular update on our work is a matter of course.


    Please also have a look on the other events of Drescher & Cie:

    Sounds like a solid proposal. I've seen you around Dash Nation, so I know you love Dash. If you and @tungfa think it's a great idea, let's do it.

    You have my votes. Good luck! :)

    I'm very much in support of this... If only for brand awareness on its own. Great proposal...

    tx for the feedback on this
    yes i met the whole german gang in Hamburg and helped to give my input in this

    i think this is a great idea and as we have not done much in the german speaking market so far , this is a great opportunity to start out Dash efforts straight up in the financial heard of germany
    (am super excited about this tbh - i know cowan since a long time through the forums , he was our main german news outlet / cointelegraph for a long time and would be a great present or for this event)

    tx for spearheading this

    Folks, I have the following problem:
    I wanted to pay the Sponsoring bill of about 18K EUR via Bitwa.la too, to avoid any conversions on my private accounts. Unfortunately the Shapeshift Limit for DASH is far too low (around 13 DASH yesterday). I could convert DASH to BTC and pay with BTC through Bitwala, but that kind of sucks.
    Any ideas? Maybe a EUR whale who wants to pay the Bill for the DAO and I send him the DASH?

    This is limit for one payment. If this is convenient - you can made several payments 13 DASH each.

    Thanks! I was trying to avoid that (would take like 5 payments and maybe annoy also the receiver). Maybe I convert to BTC first.

    The event took place yesterday. At first I was a little bit disappointed about the much lower then expected number of attendees. There where only around 60 guests and we only learned about it at arrival. The organizers told us many cancelled last minute, when they got the bill (€ 500 for a ticket).
    But the conference itself was really good and the attendees agreed when asked at the end. When it came to my talk (last one), I was much less nervous than in the morning, because the other speakers had paved the way by all speaking in favorable terms about Blockchain and Crypto, so when it came to my talk, the public was already curious and open and not as sceptic as I had expected. The venue (Villa Kennedy) was excellent and everything was managed in a very professional way. As usual, Jan (essra) did a tremendous job with the brochures and promotional material. The magazine Smart Investor (the one with the conference advert I paid for in it) had sent us issues of their latest Crypto Special Feature with an interview with yours truly and an article by an Analyst on Altcoins, mentioning DASH as the "Geheimtipp" (Insider Tip) among Alts. The best part in terms of fun was the Workshop at the end, when we gave away 20 EUR in DASH to the attendees. It worked like a charm thanks to the IOS and Android Apps (only one person asked for a Windows Phone App, but he also had an Iphone, so no big problem). 14 new Dash wallets created and many asked where to get more (EUR/DASH is unfortunately still a pain, but Anycoindirect and Kraken where mentioned). We had many interesting discussions and made new contacts, which we can work on. Drescher will also send follow up info to their vast network of financial professionals, including presentation. My talk was recorded and we will publish the material as soon as we get it and edit it.
    Of course, I will report what we plan to do with all the money that we have left, thanks to the big price rise. I have two more bills to pay and will publish the final amount left asap.

    Paid the second and last part of the bill to Jan, Bitwa.la again: 7.76800245 to XuQvnKdvsCHzAUTJcKbq9tuoK3ZTs4RC89

    I have currently no further bills to pay, so that leaves me currently with around 40 DASH left. 5 are my proposal fee and I might take that back, as I have paid all the DASH giveaways for the Ifaam Roadshow (Munich, Hamburg, Berlin) and the Drescher Conference out of my own pocket and I had some travel expenses, but the rest is there to be spent for the DACH-Area (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
