Proposal description

The Dash NEXT team has established partnerships, led integrations, driven business opportunities, created use cases, and engaging media stories for Dash. Based in Asia, we have leveraged local networks and strengthened Dash’s position across markets and industries around the globe.

We are proud to say we have established strong exposure for Dash as we are invited to represent Dash at multiple conferences in Asia and all over the world. Dash Next has been representing Dash at over 20 events over the last four month,  including European and African countries. 
After Dash Nigeria dropped out as a DFO, we are especially happy that we could, at least partially, fill the void by partnering with Africa's largest crypto media - Nigeria based Coin News Extra. In their new crypto TV channel CNETV, Dash NEXT now has a show every two weeks. We use this opportunity to invite our Dash partners and promote Dash payments. Feel free to introduce any relevant partners you would like to see on the show. 

Our DeFi efforts are ongoing, but progressing slower than we expected for two reasons: some partnerships are not moving as fast as we wish and some integrations are waiting for certain features on Dash Platform to be released.
Despite these challenges, we still strongly believe in an interoperable crypto space and want to ensure that Dash is integrated into all the new amazing DeFi opportunities such as lending, staking or yield farming. Starting conversations with all kinds of DeFi communities is a long process but highly important as we are seeing many ecosystems flourish beyond Ethereum, for example Matic, BSC, Avalanche, Solana or Thorchain. 

Moving forward, we are continuing our mission to promote Dash around the globe and find new integrations and partners. We already have a full conference calendar ahead until the end of the year. And we are excited to find new opportunities for Dash in the NFT and DeFi space. 
To summarize our focus:

  • Continuing to work closely with other DFO such as Dash Incubator and Dash Core to maximize outcomes and work towards shared goals. 
  • Pushing for new opportunities in the DeFi Space and use cases between different Blockchains 
  • Collaborating with partners to build on Dash. 
  • Create more media partnerships and tell engaging stories about Dash; also to get people from other crypto communities excited. 
  • Of course, we will continue pushing forward Dash integrations in the payment space with merchants, exchanges, and other partners.

Please let us know your feedback and suggestions to help improve our work.We also appreciate recommendations and intros to interesting partners who we can help to integrate Dash into their business

Highlights of our work in 2019:

  • “DAO Building of the year” award for Dash, represented by Dash NEXT at Malta Blockchain Summit, one of Europe’s largest Blockchain events with 6k+ participants.
  • Healthy merchants and consumer ecosystem in Thailand, in the top-3 ranking on Anypay globally for many consecutive months.
  • 9 exchange integrations, many of them top exchanges and more integrations already in progress. Of course we want Dash to be integrated everywhere, but one of the main goals here is getting as many fiat on/off ramps as possible to be able to provide end-to-end solutions to merchants with fiat settlement requirements.
  • 1.5mil. Hotels worldwide on 2 travel platforms and soon 400+ airlines and private homes payable with Dash 
  • Dash Gift cards for over 190 countries with many big merchants such as Amazon, Steam, Spotify, Netflix and many more
