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.

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:

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.

Hi Everyone - wanted to share a quick couple updates.

Our accounts rep on the https://www.dashcentral.org/p/strike-social-youtube proposal are seeing better than expected results. High viewer engagement, and definitely enough of the right types of views to the Dash video. We've delivered over 1,000,000 highly targeted views so far to the main Dash video:

Since the Dash price lost a bit of value in January, we are officially buying ads at a loss, but that does not phase us nor alter our delivery schedule. Our guarantee was in the views, and so we are absolutely committed to that. We view our partnership with Dash as long-term. (Unofficially, we are HOLDING our Dash payments for the moment, and some employees at Strike have expressed interest in getting paid in Dash.) One step closer to the full circle merchant adoption.

We've been talking with Fernando and Ogilvy and plan to use their new creative when the time comes. For the moment, the "What is Dash?" video will have to do. According to statistics, it is getting viewers to watch it, despite it lacking a level of articulation/professionalism that Dash probably deserves at the moment.

All in all, due to the new publisher restrictions, we believe that there is no time to waste in gaining awareness for Dash. With new Facebook ad restrictions, it's only a matter of time now before large ad buys like this will not be available, and the moment will have passed.

For all those that missed Ryan in Miami, here he is announcing the Strike Social partnership: ryanstrike1.jpeg

Cheers, Patrick
