It’s that time again, here are the budget proposals for this month. We’ve been working hard to invest resources as efficiently as possible. Budget allocation during Q1 looks like we are finishing up with several important investments we have done like our new dash.org domain among others. It is amazing to see how much we have accomplished since the budget system started. We are very excited about the future. Many good things came from Miami, specially the opportunity for Dash to participate in the Satoshi Roundtable for the first time ever and we are hoping the community will support this important meeting. The most exciting thing about it is that it is and invite only event and it feels great for people to start recognizing the value of our project and giving us the opportunity to explain what we are doing at the highest levels in the industry. We have other very important projects on the works that we will publish for discussion ahead of time and will probably submit for vote starting Q2 to continue with the good momentum the project is having. Previous Items: Core Team Budget - 1,174 DASH (ongoing) Public Awareness Campaign - 2,226 DASH (ongoing) (Please see the Michael Terpin - Transform.PR new project below.) Dash.org domain acquisition - 2,100 DASH (payment #3 of 4) Liquidity Providers - 121 DASH (payment #3 of 12) Dash-Lamassu ATM Integration - 610 DASH (payment #2 of 12) Transform PR - Michael Terpin - 1,100 DASH (payment #3 of 3) New Proposal Items: Dash Satoshi Roundtable Participation One of the best things that came out of Bitcoin Miami, was an invitation to the Satoshi Roundtable. For those of you that are unaware, the Satoshi Roundtable is an invitation only event that helps those very close to the Bitcoin project to organize and talk about some of the most pressing issues that are happening in the space. We’re really happy to be invited to this event and get some time to chat with the Bitcoin core developers, along with talking to large stakeholders in the Bitcoin ecosystem. Building these relationships will be critical to our long term success as a currency and project. You can see a list of this year’s attendees here: www.satoshiroundtable.org From the core team, Daniel Diaz and Evan Duffield will be attending the event. The participation cost is $2450 per person ($4900 total), then flights $440 for Evan and $660 for Daniel. Due to the full budget we’ll be spreading out the reimbursement for this over two months. A special thanks goes to Michael Terpin for helping us get this amazing opportunity for Dash. February Budget: Note: USD conversion assumes $4.18 as of January 28th, 2016 for new budgets.
