    Thanks everyone for your support of our Dash integration initiative. We're thrilled that it passed, and we're anxious to provide substantial value to the Dash network. We believe we can. (https://www.dashcentral.org/p/StrikeSocial)

    Behind the scenes, we've had many professional conversations with individual MNOs who have been helpful, and given us a look into the inner-workings of the Dash community. We're convinced that the Dash treasury is a tool that has incredible value, and holds substantial unlocked potential. We are extremely excited to form this official relationship with Dash, and we hope that it is just the beginning of a long productive partnership.

    Once our Chicago office gets back from vacation, we plan to move ahead at full speed, shooting for a mid-late January press release, along with the mobilization of internal resources to boost promotion of our Dash acceptance. In this thread, we will keep the Dash masternode community updated with our progress, including press release, syndication spots, mentions, along with anything else of substance.

    We invite any commentary, questions, or suggestions. Although we can't act on every suggestion that we are approached with, we are looking at other ways we can work together, so we consider every idea a good one.

    It would be nice to put faces and names together. Can you introduce your team that is working on this project for Dash?

    Hi Dash DAO,

    We apologize for being a little less communicative than we like to be.

    We’ve been busy organizing our teams and setting up the structure for our next steps: integrating Dash Digital Cash and talking to Dash Core.

    This is a global effort that includes our teams across the U.S., Poland, and Asia. We want to make sure we're consistent and transparent in everything we do so we’ve created a timeline document to ensure you’re up to speed with our activities regarding the integration.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

    Dash Core Communication update:


    Meeting in Miami and Exclusivity Agreement with Dash Core


    12/23/2017 - Introduction email sent to Bradley Zastrow, new global business development manager at Dash Core, and Ryan Taylor, CEO. Overall, Strike's CEO and Bradley Zastrow exchanged 20+ emails regarding setting up a meeting and an exclusive agreement between Strike Social and Dash Core.

    Integration Meetings

    Discussions regarding integration with Dash

    12/22/2017 - Strike Technology CTO Karol Blaszczyk and Dash Core Technology team exchanged introduction emails and set up a meeting.

    1/05/2018 - First meeting between Patrick and Karol, from Strike Social, and Sławek D. and Robert Wiecko, from Dash Core.

    1/09/2018 - Strike Social sent logo graphics and boilerplate (about Strike Social) to Robert Wiecko and proposed creating a Marketing and Advertising Services section on Dash Merchant Page.

    1/11/2018 - 10+ emails. Karol (Strike Social) was introduced to Jon Kindel through Robert Wiecko; Dash PR representative Jesse Platz (Account Director of Wachsman) was introduced to Patrick through Robert Wiecko. Meeting scheduled with Dash Blockchain developer Jon Kindel for the next day.

    1/12/2018 - Meeting with Jon Kindel. Robert Wiecko couldn’t make it due to scheduling conflict.

    Next steps:

    Jon is going to introduce a 3rd party called Wall of Coins to Strike Social because he thinks they can help us with volume.

    Jon also suggested DASH wallet.

    A hardware wallet (https://shop.trezor.io/) is being considered for security reasons.

    Hi Jim, sorry we didn't connect this week. As far as putting faces to names and team members, our Facebook page and other social channels are pretty detailed; you can find articles about Strike Social, advertising best practices, and photos of our offices and people. I've attached a screen shot from Facebook. This is just some of the Chicago team https://www.facebook.com/pg/StrikeSocial/post Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Yes, good question. We are also planning to throw the Dash logo onto the homepage, on the footer, next to the Google and Snapchat logos.
