Proposal description

This is a cross-post from Dash Forum

This proposal is an addendum to the previously funded d10e Conference Sponsorship proposal, which passed in the June budget: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/proposal-d10e-conference-sponsorship.9035/

In the June budget, the network approved the sponsorship of the d10e conference in San Francisco on July 19th-20th. Now that the conference proposal is passed, this proposal is to reimburse the travel and lodging costs for Evan and Daniel - who will both be presenting at d10e.

In order to extract the most value out of the trip, both Evan and Daniel will arrive the day before the event and depart the day after the event. This will allow them to meet with several Silicon Valley cryptocurrency-focused companies about potential business development
opportunities in addition to simply attending the conference. Work is in progress confirming meetings.

Requested funding is as follows for the July 6th budget cycle:
  • 45.72 Dash for Evan's flight from Phoenix ($353.00 USD @ $7.721 per June 13th average rate at https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/price-dash.html)
  • 128.87 Dash for Evan's hotel for three nights ($995.00 USD)
  • 6.48 Dash to check the Dash banner ($25.00 USD each way)
  • 141.95 Dash for Daniel's flight from Panama ($1,096.00 USD)
  • 127.27 Dash for Daniel's hotel ($982.65 USD)
  • 5.00 Dash reimbursement for the proposal cost
  • LESS the leftover 5.60 Dash from the previous d10e Conference Sponsorship proposal (the Dash price appreciated from the date it was
    submitted to the network to the date we paid d10e, so we are applying
    those funds here)
Total: 449.69 Dash

Exchange rate risk is carried by Evan and Daniel, not by the network.

I'm a bit puzzled about the price of the hotels.
Any further information why this is _so_ expensive?
Which hotel is that?

i do not have the details, but with conferences it is the best (meetings and such) to stay the closest to the venue, recommended/sponsored by the conference.
and that is what this is probably

This is a valid point.
But if there are hotels at least half the price in 5-minutes cab drive distance, I'm not ok spending so much money just for the 15 minutes extra time it would take to go to a cheaper hotel.

This is San Francisco, it's VERY expensive there. The price doesn't seem too expensive to me if it's at the venue, which it really needs to be, IMO

Before I vote on this, what is the reason for Daniel to go?

We already have Oaxaca, Buster, and TheDashGuy going. Evan is speaking so obviously he should go. If Sara joins him that makes 5.

Evan and Daniel work great as a team, we have done it many times before, if anybody signs up business deals around here , it is Daniel, as he is "New Business Dev" so he has to be present
