Proposal description

This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum

This proposal is to fund Dash's participation at the ICE Totally Gaming Conference scheduled from February 7th-9th in London. Dash will participate in the conference jointly with Coinfirm to present a combined offer for the gaming and gambling sector. We plan to generate a great deal of awareness and understanding of Dash's unique advantages from the conference attendees, and how they can accept Dash on their gaming platforms while meeting regulatory requirements.

If this proposal is approved, Holger Schinzel and Robert Weiko will be representing Dash on stage this year, and will be discussing the set of features that make Dash unique and valuable for the gaming sector, and our plans going forward. Together with the Coinfirm CEO, we plan to explain how to create the most robust payment system for the gaming industry.

In addition, Dash and Coinfirm will have an exhibitor booth at the conference to interact with attendees throughout the three days, answering questions about our platform.

Additional information about the conference itself can be found here: http://www.icetotallygaming.com/

This proposal will cover the following expenses:
Airfare from Basel to London (Robert) and from Bremen to London (Holger) - about $250 USD in total
Conference materials, swag and information pamphlets - c.a $250
3 nights hotel on site - ~$400 / night / person
Ground transporation - ~$100
Exhibition booth - 1,000 GBP (~$1,244 USD)
Total: approximately $4,244

Robert Wiecko is leading our efforts to prepare for the conference. If you have questions regarding this proposal, please direct them to him by posting them on the Dash Forum proposal post and including @kot in your question.

Requested funding is as follows for the February 3rd budget cycle:
Total: 287.09 Dash

Note: Any unused budget will be applied toward future conference and travel expenses

Voting yes, but $2400 in hotel costs? Were there no more affordable options nearby?

I see many good hotels between $60 and $300, eg. Prince Regent Hotel Excel London for $280 per night in walking distance. On top Feb 7th to Feb 9th is two nights only. Voting no because of this nonsense

If that's the standard rate for the area at the time, would it be so bad to share a room?

This is possibly one of the biggest market to target and one that needs cryptos more than they even can realize.
Instant yes
