Why our team is good for this purpose?

We’ve got 5 stars rating on Dash Treasury website! It’s good to see that people appreciate our work and are involved in the process:)

My name is Slava and I represent a group of cryptocurrency enthusiasts from Kiev, Ukraine
I remember as it all started from a pure interest on how digital currency works about two years ago. And, I have to say it was quite tricky at first, because there were almost no resources, that could explain crypto with “normal human language” without loosing crucial points. What’s more, most of the info was in English with a bunch of technological stuff, which is difficult to understand, even though I am a fluent speaker. Our content must be very useful for all those who are new to crypto or are looking for simple explanation (especially for Western Europe and Russian- speakers all over the world)
That’s why we decided to focus on promoting cryptocurrency and a DASH itself in a way that brought us to it – through persistent explanation. And the best way to attract people is to make it lively: using real life examples, simplifying the words and focusing on the main concept of a blockchain. We want to show people that cryptocurrency is a very humane thing. No more dull and boring stuff about crypto - only hardcore!))

Most of our teammates are programmers or IT- specialists, who were historically the first to appreciate a cryptocurrency technology. However, I’m a student of finance so I do a lot of research on blockchain technology. Well it’s not surprising, as crypto is going to wipe out banks, which should be my main working place (just kidding). But as I took more interest in crypto, I noticed that there are not so many people, who can adequately explain it to public.

So, as my main professional skill is delivering ideas to people (I’ve been working as a journalist in information agency and nation-wide newspapers), why shouldn’t I try to benefit the cryptocurrency world! Besides, it gets me going every time I see people realizing this technology for the first time))
The proposal is for 3 months, so it would be possible to adjust the execution and prices on short- term basis. We are looking for a long-term involvement so our team could become Ukrainian DASH coordinators!

If everything goes fine – we would introduce proposals for more periods.

@sm , are you going to promote your proposal for the next period? I'm not just wondering: a friend of mine had recently attended one of your meet- ups in a restaurant and I want to get there too!!! :)
P.S. By the way, drop me a line as you plan next event;)

By the way, since our community activity turned into an a lot deeper commitment, we'll probably make a proposal for a longer period of time - six months or so:)

Sure I will! Unfortunately I had to have a delay in video production but eventually things are getting better. We are now focused on making Dash spendable, so don't miss our events - they are a lot of fun:)

What happened to the exchange? I receive an HTTP 500...
1 point,6 years ago
Sorry for long delay in replies
The exchange is now in maintenance, as we are trying to plug in a dozen more restaurants.
By the way - next big event is coming in three days :)

Unfortunately I found myself in hospital this week and I'm not allowed to leave until wednesday or so. And I guess my skin is going to look terrible for a week or so. That's why, there might be a slight delay in production of video blogs (About a week or so) :(
However, this is not going to affect any of other activities that we've planned - news, conferences and integrations.
P.S. Good news are that I came up with a new idea of a setup for vlogs, while in the hospital!:)
