Proposal description

BRIEFING: CREATING A PERSUASIVE BUSINESSANALYSIS             
"CryptalResearch is an organization whose missions to analyze project propositions presented to the Dash Community .
CryptalResearch introduces a new focus on Dash Community projects. It helps its members to validate and cast an informed vote thanks to its positive or negative recommendations. The outcomes are based on careful and accurate analysis’."

Why support CryptalResearch ?

By publishing our papers, we thrive to give our community a fair and fact-based opinion about the voted projects,which will ultimately increase the value of Dash by bringing institutional investors to our ecosystem, hence the Dash value hold by the masternodes.

What we deliver:  Equity Research style coverage:

CryptalResearch is a research house whose aim is to provide Dash community with institutional-like investing recommendations through elaborate research reports, with a goal of helping our community have all cards on deck before taking a decision.
Dash Valuation Model, which is consistently updated with new parameters after each of project voted, join our purpose which is to develop a strong valuation model inspired by Equity & Corporate finance models that not only integrates the core value of dash, but also aggregates the ecosystem and treat all projects.
Funded by masternodes, and filtered by CryptalResearch, the projects we will work on together will increase the overall valuation of Dash. At CryptalResearch, we’re not afraid to develop and discuss state of the art models mainly due to our founders’ successful experience in financial markets, on both buy &sell-sides.

 Why is this important?
  • As we see more institutions coming, it’s a data piece that is important to have.
  • Because institutions simply don’t buy in something they can’t value with a DCF or a multiple model, they may need more in-depth analysis on the project environment and his viability
  • Helps determine a future value of Dash , Future cash flow, Usage , Penetration ,ect
  • Keeps track of all the progresses of the various projects and their impact on the valuation, and outputs a target price adjusted to the progress of the project.
  • Evaluates proposal within the context of their impact on the current valuation and identifies redundancies, of impact, and always links them to a valuation and a general scope.

Our channels of distribution:
As we will be doing an equity research style report,we will be distributing them through Bloomberg, Reuters, Lantern Research, Cryptalnews,Six Financial

Why is distribution important?
As we target current and future “Institutionnal masternodes”, itis important to distribute in trusted & known sources.

What we have done:  Our confirmed analysts have already produced 9 reports about Dash and the
proposals: http://www.cryptalnews.com/cryptalresearch/
We aim to produce an analysis for all the projects proposed. A PDF version is also available in the links below:

The proposals are already a lot to read. Research is good but I don't have time to read even more.
Videos, including interviews and analysis might be more useful.

Asking for your annual budget to be paid in 3 months? You can easily make your proposal much more attractive by asking for 1 or 2 month budget in 1 or 2 budget cycles.
Apart from that it is too expensive.

NO from me.

Thank you for your feedback mrpancake.
We're actually asking for one year funding because we gathered a dedicated team devoted to the dash community ( Reports, flashs, valuations & proposal analysis) exchanging with our database of clients ( Funds, institutionals, Desks.. )
It's hard to keep a team working with no visibility in terms on salaries - We already started the process (9 reports already) with our own funds but we need more funding to make the project live.

Bit too steep, I think that a more down to earth buget would be great, 294 DASH a month is just too much. Maybe you meant to require 294 for the whole 6 months in which case I will suggest to break down your proposal into maybe 60 DASH for 4 months.

Hi JZA,
The 294 Dash is for 3 months. The 883 is the annual budget. You can see the budget details on the proposal
Thanks for the question

You are requesting about 6 months worth of funding. Why is that?

You mentioned Dash Foundation a couple of times in your budget proposal, please explain what you think the Dash Foundation is to Dash.

Yes CryptalResearch produced some decent quality work, but doesn't justify the price tag. No for me.

It sounds like you want the job of Dashwatch, I was not aware it was up for grabs ?!?
Reply

Apologies, Hani--.

A_node_to_a_Master seems to have forgotten that in Dash, all jobs are up for grabs at all times. Yes, we may appreciate the work being done by current employees, but of course, there is always room for improvement.

Sorry for the unwelcoming comment.

Can you please point to me towards the discussions that people are discontent with DashWatch that they want to give up on them all together ?

And or if I am stating the obvious than why is their no comparison seeing they want to compete for the same spot ?

Also are you aware MNO want to work towards collecting and managing proposals on a platform called Dash Nexus ? They also work with Dashwatch and have also made little complaints.

Questions for you Callalilly:
1 Why down vote me ?
2 And why apologize for a my question? .

Just to be clear I provided them with an opportunity to answer why they are a good addition or replacement ?

Dashwatch is mainly a tracker of the approved projects, its main aim is to provide to the community different performance metrics and progression status of the on going projects, in order to compare and evaluate them regarding their initial goals and declared milestones. This has huge benefits for Dash community as it provides the so needed and longtime missed data and information to assess the status of these projects. This can only lead to more accountability and help meeting deadlines.

We believe that Dashwatch and Cryptalresearch roles are not interfering in any way. In fact, they are perfectly complementary as Dashwatch focuses on post voting and following up on approved projects, while Cryptalreasearch first mission is to analyze and provide a full in-depth investigation during the propasal phase, even before the project is approved.
To put it in simple words, Cryptalresearch helps to take the best voting decisions based on factual information and scientific analysis, while Dashwatch offers a tool to follow on, assess progress, and keep track on the performance of each passed project.

Besides, Dashwatch has even been useful for our analysts, as they could find in it, and at many occasions, some valuable information on passed projects while benchmarking for many proposals.

To sum up, Dash community and MNOs need both tools to cover the full project journey, from voting decision to assessing progress and performance.

We appreciate the work done by Dashwatch. But we also think that we can bring the expertise we accumuled in the equity and m&a. Our team and I have more than 10 years experience in market finance.
Please have a look to the work we already done. You can notice by yourself, the differences and depth between CryptalResearch and Dashwatch.

I have seen you're website yes, and their are some things are good about, it but it not perfect, DashWatch isn't perfect either, but they are working hard to improve it. Maybe they can do with some pointer from you but don't want to replace them, nor do am I planning to read both you're reports as it creates allot of extra work as an active MNO voter.
