MORE INFO and CERTIFICATES IN THIS FORUM THREAD
KILLER FEATURES:


  • First time ever DASH is being used as an official payment method to purchase security software during the public contract signing. All of that will be covered by mass media.
  • AxxonSoft starts accepting Dash and gives 15% off on their software.
  • Smart Road system will use DASH as an exclusive cryptocurrency payment option.

Background of the idea:
Since we have two security companies – ITX andAxxonSoft – as our partners, we are deeply involved in this sector. We've been talking about cryptocurrency to many experts and they are showing a grown interest. After our successful integration with restaurants, Axxon decided to implement the pay-by-crypto option too. What’s more, they've decided to move to blockchain-based surveillance system. Their first product - project Smart Road - will be presented for the first time during the exhibition! So, as we now have so many options to use crypto, it seems  wise to promote it on national level. 

Partnerships:
Smart Road 
– Smart Road is an SPV company (special purposevehicle) specially created in order to implement the project of Automatic Photo- Video- fixation of traffic rules violation in Ukraine which is supposed to be developed on blockchain technology and with the possibility to pay the penalty by cryptocurrency.
Axxon Soft – a company with 10 yearsof experience in video surveillance and security systems.

I agree with voluntary but perhaps having people pay with dash would give incentive for govt not to regulate it out of existence.

Could you tell us what ROI you offer to Dash?

It's hard to measure but it will have an impact that is closer to what similar conferences do.

Since, we'e going to be general sponsors, thousands of people will be interested in what this technology does. Our Dash cafe will be responsible for explaining how it works, what are the benefits, giveaways and real Dash transactions with users.

A big portion of our audience is going to be business owners who are always interested in new technologies, new payment methods and even investments. So the outreach will be very targeted.

There will be about 120 companies, and who knows how many of them can be potential customers of Dash.

On top of that we're going to make a public signing in front of several TV channels which will make Dash one of the most popular crypto here in Ukraine.

Therefore, it's pretty hard to calculate the actual ROI but this conference can be really important step in future partnerships with Dash network and security systems.

I don't like the idea of Dash facilitating people being ripped off by other people doing business as 'government' - ie: making up arbitrary rules that people are then forced to obey at the point of a gun and then using that as an excuse to screw money out of people.

I think you haven't understood the concept of Smart Road correctly. That's an SPV, which main purpose is to wipe out bribery and those who make money ripping the people off - ie: you won't be able to delete the penalty for braking the speed limit even if you were a president. Does that make sense?:)

That's what I think as well. But it's not worse than using fiat money the government print themselves for the same purpose... anyway, the exposure at the exhibition and news might be good for Dash.
