Proposal description

This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum

This proposal funds the expenses for Dash to participate and sponsor the "BTC & Blockchain International Summit" in Beijing, China at the Platinum sponsorship level.

The BTC & Blockchain International Summit is the most influential blockchain technology conference in China, which is organized by Bitkan and is being held in Beijing on September 9th. This conference aims to discuss the current state of the digital currency and blockchain industry as well as its future. Attendance includes 80+ top-tier companies, 1000+ targeted users, and 200+ key influencers. A platinum conference sponsorship provides Dash with a prime opportunity to introduce our solutions to the Asia market, especially to China. We anticipate significant growth in our connections with local top-tier companies, and introduce Dash to potential users at the same time.

Attendees from Dash will include Evan Duffield, Andy Freer, Philipp Engelhorn, Daniel Diaz, and the China country managers (Alexy and Raico). Evan will be our presenter on the main stage.

We are seeking funding for a Platinum sponsorship package, which includes the following:
- A 20-minute solo speaking opportunity at a prime timeslot
- 6 VIP level tickets and 6 VIP networking dinner invitations
- The largest booth size - 20 foot x 10 ft
- Inclusion of a Dash flyer in participants' welcome packets
- Two conference gifts with Dash logo provided to conference participants
- Top level publicity on website and conference materials
- Dash presented as Platinum sponsor on the conference backwall
- Two hotel rooms for two nights included

Costs for the conference sponsorship total 280,000 RMB.

We will also require funding for travel and lodging for up to 6 team members, and a booth support package (including booth rental, install and tear-down) provided by Bitkan. We are estimating these additional expenses at $12,000 USD. Any unused funding will be applied toward future conference events.

If you have any other questions, please direct them to @Ryan Taylor in this Dash Forum post to ensure I see your request.

Requested funding is as follows for the August 4th budget cycle:
  • 274.99 Dash for sponsorship and expenses for platinum sponsorship of the BTC & Blockchain International ($53,475 USD @ $194.46 per Dash)
  • 5.00 Dash proposal reimbursement
Total: 279.99 Dash

Note: Should any funding remain, we will apply it toward future conference and travel expenses.

I hope that DashForceNews can send Michael BoxMining and also Mark Mason to cover this event live with lots of videos. The cost would be well worth the exposure on YouTube (although YouTube is blocked in China) - what is the Chinese equivalent to Youtube? Ok save the videos from China and upload them later! It would be great :)

Does anyone going speak Chinese?
If not, I would like to drop one core team member and/or add Boxmining of Dash Force China.

Hey @djcrypt0 Thank you for the Dash Force love. Hopefully @babygiraffe won't mind me answering this. Both Dash China Coordinators Alexy and Raico are native Mandarin Chinsese speakers. With that being said I will be speaking to @mastermined & @thedesertlynx to see if we can fund Michael from Dash Force China to attend, report, network and interview at event. It's a great opportunity to network and form partnerships. I'd also love to go and report / plus be the camera man with Michael from show floor as well ;-p This is dependant on Dash Force funds. Michael already has interviewed indiviudals like Bobby Lee from BTCC etc. so Michael is my first priority. Thank you for your continued support.
