This is a cross-post from www.dashwhale.org/p/bsdev-general-201608

This is a continuation of the Business Development budget funding found here: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/proposal-business-development-support-and-integration.9220/

As the community has been able to testify, we are making great strides toward execution of our business development plans for 2016. We have recently revealed our progress on the Lamassau ATM integration and partnership with TigoCTM, our open-ended collaboration with Mycelium and our upcoming integration with ProtonMail. We hope that the community is starting to appreciate the hard work the past few months to build the ecosystem. These partnerships establish a solid foundation for Dash’s continued growth. There are a number of additional partnerships/integrations that will be announced as each is ready for public release.

We hope that the partnerships that have already been published show that we are hard at work to expand the ecosystem, and that the funding of the business development program is yielding substantial tangible results. We believe that continuing funding for this program is an essential component of our strategy and necessary to deliver a healthy ecosystem of services for the Dash network.

The funding requested will continue the $6,000 per month funding from the previous proposal. We anticipate the need for business development funding to be ongoing as we ramp up business partner onboarding efforts. This proposal is for one month only due to the upcoming release of 12.1, which will reset all budget items in the system. Funds will be used to support integration expenses, technical support for partners, project management, solution design, technical specification creation, testing, code reviews, and other expenses to onboard new partnerships.

Requested funding is as follows for the August 5th budget cycle:
Total: 651.41 Dash

Note: Funding from this proposal will be reserved for business development purposes.

Have always appreciated the hard work that the team is putting in. I think you guys are doing an amazing job and am really looking forward to seeing more partnerships.

The utility of our network is going to get a huge upgrade when Mycelium, Jaxx, Lamassu, TigoCTM, Spectrocoin and Shakepay are all live.
The one integration that I personally really want to see is uphold which is so useful for shifting into precious metals etc. I have talked to some of their management and they said that they had eyes on us so hopefully that comes soon :)
