Proposal description

1. Who are we?

Huobi Pro (http://www.huobi.pro) is a digital asset exchange made for cryptocurrency traders and investors all over the world. We are headquartered in Singapore with intensive networks in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North Americas.

Huobi Pro is a leading global digital asset financial services provider. Founded in 2013, with more than four years of industry-leading security practice, record-breaking marketing and operation experiences, top-notch R&D powerhouse, and most credited customer service system. As Huobi operated the digital asset exchange safely and stably for more than 4 years and managed over $1 billion USD and served millions of customers, Huobi is known as the world-class brand and the largest exchange (by BTC Volume) in China.


Due to recent regulations in china Huobi is now based out of Singapore with a new webpage ( http://www.huobi.pro )

https://coinmarketcap.com/exchanges/huobi/


2. What’s the proposal for?

We are the leading global digital asset exchange – Huobi.pro. We would like to integrate Dash in our exchange. Not only bring Dash to our millions of users from 130+ countries and regions all over the world, but also make them Dash fans. We will spread Dash’s technology and unique characteristics to the Chinese market through our website announcements, articles, videos and training. Since Huobi is one of the largest exchanges in China and we’ve been operated for four years, we own great reputation in digital asset industry. Listing Dash on our exchange will definitely increase the popularity and liquidity of Dash in China, even the world.


3. What will we do?

a. Exchange. We will list Dash/BTC and Dash/USDT trading pairs on Huobi.pro and create millions of Dash hot wallets for our users and cold wallet for our platform.

b. Air drop. We will air drop Dash to all our bitcoin and litecoin traders, encourage them by this to use Dash, experience the Speed, try it out and see the difference in Dash and its technology. We will launch promotions to introduce Dash to our users and make them well aware and educated in Dash.

c. Marketing. We will post announcements on our website and Social Media which will be exposed to our millions of users, Dash will definitely get more popular in China. Huobi’s marketing channel will includes:

Twitter: 35k Followers

WeChat:160K Followers

Chinese Media: Jinse.com, BitKan, BTC123, AICoin

WeChat QQ Group: more than 100 groups

Huobi Brilliants’Talk Show: 8 million audiences in total


Take the case of ETH launching on Huobi for example.

A. WeChat:

a,《【重要通知】ETH上线火币网,狂送ETH!》to tell users ETH launched in Huobi, get 21259 reading

http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/AxYG5J1_b_nF6U-eWB3jMg

b.《【科普】以太坊到底是什么?有何价值?》to tell users value of ETH, get 14231 reading

http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/0w8It9xvMObGyMHzv7_VCg

B. Chinese Media

36kr: http://36kr.com/newsflashes/60364

All of the Chinese bitcoin industry media such as Jinse.com, BTC123, AICoin and BitKan,released articles above.

C. Market quotations analysis websites

Hexun.com,jintou.com,FX168 and so on.


4. What do we think of Dash?

Bitcoin’s community has been struggling about the block size expansion for several years. But Dash community is very solid and united. We think a cryptocurrency with such team backup can only get better and bigger in the long run. Bitcoin is just the first cryptocurrency like BTCChina, which was the first exchange in China. But BTCChina has almost vanished in the Chinese market. We think Dash has a great opportunity to surpass Bitcoin, Huobi Pro will have a win-win cooperation with Dash and wants to be part of that push forward.

This budget proposal is part of our Marketing Strategy already, as we are explaining with this, to the general Cryptocurrenmcy Community, how Consensus can and should work in a Decentralized Project / Team. The timing with the recent (and coming) BTC fork is prefect to show how Dash accomplished it’s consensus with the Budget System


Above all, we’d like to request 1005 Dash for our proposal. 


1. 5 Dash reimbursement for the proposal cost.

2. 1000 Dash for air drop (see Point 3.) to our bitcoin and litecoin users, who are our active trading users on our exchange. There are hundreds of thousands of active bitcoin and litecoin trading users. Each of them can get about 0.001-0.01Dash.

3. Extra marketing and technical development costs (integration) will be handled by Huobi ourselves.


We are looking forward to a successful cooperation with the Dash Community and Core Team

Looking at current market volume Huobi sits at 14, with 90M volume. Dash is already on 9th place.

I much rather prefer to popularize Dash on Bitfinex with 1KM volume and Dash doesn't even appear in top 10 trading pairs.
Reply
2 points,7 days ago
Popularizing Dash on Bitfinex and educating Chinese users about Dash via Huobi Pro does not conflict with each other at all. We would love to see a proposal for popularizing Dash on Bitfinex. Yet we do wish to get your support on this proposal. You are welcome to refer to our clarification and Q&A links on the proposal for your concerns and let us know if you have further questions about the current plan.

This kind of marketing is suited for the chinese market. I think its a one time thing because its a way to introduce ourselves to a lot of crypto users and traders in a potentially enormous market, a way of creating a great first impression.

Will only passport verified users get the airdrop?
Or can I now make 1000 accounts on your exchange to get a lot of airdrops?
Reply
2 points,7 days ago
Yes, One passport/ID can only register one user account. We also have anti-spam mechanisms to make sure the airdrop only goes to passport verified users who have been active on our platform.

So, the answer to your second question is that though we would love your support on our proposal, it is unfortunate that you will not be able to get a lot of Dash airdrops on our platform by making 1000 accounts.

Thanks! Those are good questions and we appreciate your feedback.

How do random people on an exchange getting dash help?
If we're going to spend almost half a million on this, we could at least get that half million into dash wallets, not on an exchange where they will be easily "thanks for the free money! *sell*"'ed away
I just received a small amount of TRON on Binance and didn't even look it up before placing a sell order. I'm sure many others will do the same with DASH.

Also, how do we tell if this is even successful?
Why not give away 100 dash first? it has to be 1000?

What's far more ridiculous is that the description says "Each of them can get about 0.001-0.01Dash."
***There have been 0 questions about this so far, and the estimation is an order of magnitude off***. nobody really cares about the magnitude at all before this passes?

why not use 100 dash instead of 1000 then?
Seems super reckless of the masternodes. I'm pretty shocked and disappointed that this is passing.
Reply

I agree. We should only give Dash to users by sending it directly to a Dash address. Not to an exchange account will they will immediately sell.
Reply
1 point,7 days ago
I beg to differ from this point of view.

Though personal experience speaks as great example, please be cautious to generalize user behaviors from one or two use cases. As for the effect of the Airdrop, I have clarified that we would provide a report for Dash community and us as well to review and reflect for future activities.

Moreover, if, we as members of the crypto community, want to make it strong, and achieve mass adoption, we shall do it by uniting people together as much as possible, and be nice to each other, not to categorize people as "good users"/"bad traders"/"bad speculators" until they actually do something to deserve that judgment.

This is what we are trying to do at Huobi Pro and we are asking Dash to do this together with us: setting a great example of Exchange and Community working together to raise awareness instead of frowning on each other.

Airdropping dash into an exchange? seriously guys?
people are just going to go "lol thanks for the free bitcoin" and sell immediately
the people on these exchanges don't care about anything but whats going to take their bank account to the moon
if you want to blow 1000 dash like this, make sure it goes into users dash wallets, not just onto an exchange
Why would we start with 1000? why not make it 500, then if it goes well, do another 500?
Why 1000 at all? just because it is an amount with 3 zeroes on the end? We're spending $450,000 on this, we should have a reason we're spending that instead of $200,000 or $600,000 that isn't just because its a nice round number
come on guys, show people that the masternodes are more sophisticated than this.

1. The Airdropped Dash goes to users not to the exchange;
2. Please don't generalize exchange users as pure *speculators* ;
3. 1000 amount is determined based on our user statistics.

Hope it helps

OK, just to summarize: Huobi has added Dash to their exchange, at no cost, for free and it's already done. Isn't that a nice change of pace? A lot of exchanges want substantial money for this. Huobi also intends to promote Dash to their 100's of 1,000's of customers (who are already familiar with cryptocurrency, but never had an easy way to buy or trade Dash) also at no cost. So that's two big freebies.

And then there is this proposal. If we, the Dash community want to put the cherry on top, and help them promote Dash, we could throw in 1,000 Dash. 100% of that Dash will be airdropped to many thousands of their customers along with Huobi's promotional information about how awesome and amazing Dash is. They do the promotional/advertising part for free, and we throw in the Dash to make it even more exciting and compelling. This will also help kick start the liquidity on the exchange.

Again I say, yes!

There had been speculation that as Dash continued to improve the product and educate people about the many many feature and innovations Dash has, exchanges would start offering to integrate us for free. Apparently, we are there now.

Dear Dash Community members,

Thanks for all your feedbacks and discussions for the last few days. We are thrilled by the democratic culture here in Dash Community. We would love to clarify certain misunderstandings during our discussions here:

1. We are listing DASH because we are fascinated by Dash's technology innovation in the crypto world, as well as governance mechanism. Dash is a great example of how decentralization utilizes both technology development and organization governance. We are thrilled to have Dash, not only as an asset for trading on our platform, but also a long term partner. May we both live long and prosper.

2. Huobi Pro has been serving the Chinese customers since 2013 safely and stably, with industry-leading security practice, gaining deep marketing insights in the Asian cryptocurrency market as well as millions of users over the world. We do not see us as only a trading exchange, but also an educational hub for consumers to promote early adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

3. We see the integration of Dash to Huobi Pro as a chance for us to bring Dash as an innovative and truly decentralized cryptocurrency to our users. We are not charging Dash for listing on Huobi Pro, and we have already posted articles about Dash's uniqueness through our social media outlets to195k followers.

4. We see the 1000 Dash airdrop as a growth hacking style marketing strategy which would instantly attract users' interest to Dash along side our already-done social media education and promotions. Similar marketing strategy is quite popular in China, widely applied by internet companies, and is proved to be pretty effective. However, we do understand your concerns. We will have Dash China community member on site to conduct the airdrop with us together and provide a detailed airdrop report to Masternodes for your future reference.

5. We were running on a tight schedule to promote and list Dash before Segwit 2X as our marketing campaign for Dash focused on Dash Community's unity and efficiency in comparison to Bitcoin. It is unfortunate there was a rush between the pre-proposal thread and the proposal submission. We will amend our proposal with Q&As according to our discussions here this weekend.

6. We appreciate all your comments and feedbacks here, all of them are of great value to us. It is truly amazing to see such devoted discussions about project development in the crypto community. Our cooperation today is a great beginning of a long journey and an important strategic partnership. We will consider and evaluate the possibility of integrating InstantSend and adding more Dash trading pairs in future and timely update with Dash community members.

To all the Yes voters who think this proposal is about adding Dash to Huobi: IT IS NOT.
Dash is already live and being traded on Huobi as we speak. This proposal is entirely about giving away 1000 Dash for free to their customers. Do not be fooled here!
Reply
4 points,12 days ago
Dear Macrochip, thanks for your comment.

It is not *only* about adding Dash to Huobi. It is about educating Chinese users about how innovative and decentralized Dash is in the crypto world, and achieving major consumer adoption of Dash in China.

We plan to launch a more comprehensive marketing and educational campaign alongside the 1000 Dash airdrop if the proposal passes. Estimated influence will cover at least 200k people. The airdrop, as part of the comprehensive campaign, would provide hundreds of thousands of people in China an instant chance to recognize Dash as a great cryptocurrency as well as an amazing application of blockchain technology.

Please let me know if this helps. :)

I have only these questions: Do you really want to airdrop all of the 1000 Dash? Don't you have *any* costs to cover? How can you do all of that marketing for free? I'd like to see you implement Dash InstantSend and tell us how much that would cost you. Take that amount from the airdrop and give us an extra feature for it. That I could live with.
Reply
3 points,12 days ago
1. Yes, we are airdropping all of the 1000 Dash to users;
2. We are not covering any costs with the 1000 Dash in the proposal;
3. We are doing the marketing for free because we consider Dash as an important long term partner which need to be recognized in Chinese market, not just a coin to be listed on exchange (& we already listed Dash).
4. We will consider and evaluate implementation of Dash InstantSend and let Dash community know about it.
5. We'd like to keep this proposal focusing on the airdropping, working on raising awareness and adoption first, and talking about InstantSend implementation later.

Dear dashcentral,

You are definitely not giving away Dash for free.

As one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in China, we have marketing channels and social media outlets which can reach millions Chinese users who are interested in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. We think it is a pity that most of them don't know much about how great Dash is.

As such, we plan to launch a more comprehensive marketing and educational campaign alongside the 1000 Dash airdrop if the proposal passes.

The airdrop, as part of the comprehensive campaign, would provide hundreds of thousands of people in China an instant chance to recognize Dash as a great cryptocurrency as well as an amazing application of blockchain technology. We consider education and practice go hand in hand as one of the best ways to achieve mass adoption of cryptocurrency, and plan to do so with Dash as one of the cryptocurrencies which definitely deserves such adoption in China.

I wish this helps and let me know if you have any further questions.

I'm sorry, but if Dash pays this one, then EVERY exchange will expect us to pay them just to be listed! It sets a bad precedent for Dash. It's a bit like paying a ransom. If another exchange wants to list Dash, they wilk say we want 1000 Dash as well! I'm sorry, but Dash is number 6 crypto in the world. All exchanges should add Dash for free and be happy!

We are not charging Dash to get on Huobi at all, as my clarification explains. The 1000 airdrop is for advertising for Dash as stillcantstop said.
Reply

As Strophy noted, the Dash community/treasury isn't paying to get on their exchange. That part's done already. They are not charging us for that. They like Dash. They are advertising for Dash. Now they want to give a sample of Dash to people who are already excited about cryptocurrency (Bitcoin mostly) but have never had access to Dash. I'm not sure you could have a better, more targeted air drop.

Back in the day, Amanda B. Johnson pointed out that to popularize PayPal in the early days, they gave away a lot of money to get people to try it. It was new, it was strange, here's a little enticement to try it. How did that turn out for PayPal? Pretty good right?

Yes but what this proposal is doing isn’t giving Dash it’s usecases for users to use them. This is more like giving amazon and Facebook stock holders free stock of apple; that can be sold immediately to buy more amazon/Facebook stock. All they can do is trade it on the exchange. It’s diferent if you give the Dash to personal wallets allowing its usecases to show its potential.

I think this is just a ploy to increase the amount of “play money” on their exchange, since they definitely are hurting after harsh regulations from China. This $340000 giveaway is just going to be sold and put into coins the current holders want to hold. Think if you were given free bitcoin, would you keep it on top of buying more?!(which is what your saying would happen to Dash if this is funded) Or sell it for what you like to hold?

I agree huobi are noobs at running a proposal and should have done more pre-discussion and put more than some low level staffer with crap English on the forum. But the vote now is whether or not to support their airdrop promotion, and like it or not that is how you get the attention of the Chinese market: with dramatic promotions like this. I think it's a great way to make a splash.

Thanks strophy for your understanding! We are learning the lesson from Dash community about running proposals and this is at the same time a great experience. After all, it is always nice to learn and join a vibrant community in the crypto world. We are taking your suggestion and opinions with us for our future marketing and PR activities. Your advice is of great value to us.

Good point but, cultural differences aside, I'd rather Dash gain respect in that market on its own merit.

It will: we are not doing the airdrop as an isolated event, we are also educating Chinese consumers about it.

Agreed. This is the type of advertising we get from huobi: https://medium.com/huobi-global/dash-a-unique-digital-asset-is-more-suitable-for-payment-scenarios-7abe8fcb4f3e and I gotta say that chart is very sad and poor at explaining Dash. I feel like they don’t even know Dashs usecases

We will have Dash China Community member onsite with us when airdrop happens, and provide a detailed airdrop report for Masternodes. It is unfortunate that escrow will not work out with our wallets due to technical reasons.

I was going to vote, no but after hearing that Chinese investors, appreciate dash more after getting some free Dash is, pulling me over the line. I will admit that this maybe a complete lie, but my knowledge of Chinese investors is very limited. So i'll simply take their word for it. And if I (we) get burned I know not to trust them again. Either way I think it's worth the risk.

That being said, my votes will be yes, but only after I see the Dash ticker on their exchange.

I think that Chinese investors will appreciate a little bonus rather than plain coin...that would yield much more leverage than a vanilla airdrop...and drive liquidity on the exchange as well which should help fill the order books. A no from me until I hear a better plan!

You can't get burned (at least short term) because it's not your own money you're spending. You are not directly experiencing any loss, that's what makes this so dangerous.

I very much most of what comment Macrochip both here and elsewhere, but the mainpoint is that the airdrop will make sure we break into a new market, and if Chinese potentially would reopen that would make this investment really cheap. If I am missing something please let me know.

As far what your saying about not spending my own money, I agree, MNO often spend on the wrong things, this may be one of them.

This is a No from me. It's almost 4am and want to dive in and pick this proposal apart but I am too tired after my shift. For starters making a pre-proposal and then a proposal within a span of a day or less with multiple people having problems about key points of what is being proposed should be documented as a very effective way in the category of "How not to get funded through the Dash Treasury".

Secondly, the airdrop not only gives no benefit to the Dash network, it only works as a way of increasing transactions and fees for the exchange. This is a lose-win situation. The aim should always be win-win in negotiations.

Some would argue that the win for Dash is all the exposure to the Chinese audience. Great! Split that into a new proposal and give a very detailed plan and strategy on how you will raise awareness and ENGAGEMENT about Dash in China. Give us clearly stated goals that you feel confident about meeting and then ask for a price. Marketing should not be bundled together with integration in the same proposal. I'll explain in a second.

Thirdly, you clearly state as a goal of this proposal the listing of DASH/USDT and DASH/BTC on your exchange. This is the honey pot, the trap for the MNs. This shouldn't be in the proposal. You have already stated your beliefs about Dash so I see no reason for you NOT to list Dash in your exchange, in the near future, regardless of any proposal outcome. You are using this exchange listing of Dash, which should anyway happen, to get YES votes from MNs about an airdrop that is meant to bring your transactions higher to boost your income from fees while tweeting and posting about it.


This isn't about Dash in the end. It's about boosting your exchange while doing the bare minimum of work (which should have been done already).

Not to mention that IS isn't in the plan. There is no excuse anymore for IS not to be included in EVERY integration moving forward.

We need to start setting up some standards over here. Amateur hour needs to seize. Doing business with you right now in the way that is described in the proposal will only lead to more low to medium effort proposals being submitted.

No lengthy pre-proposal discussion ? --> No
Ignoring feedback from the community? --> No
No IS on the integration? --> No
Airdrop? --> No

Access how much you need for an IS integration, we will pay for that. What are the development costs for adding more trading pairs for DASH like DASH/ETH etc? We'll pay for that. Give us something that benefits both of us, not just yourself.

Another hour passed. I really need to get some sleep.

Hi I hope you got plenty sleep this weekend. :P We were on a tight schedule for the pre proposal thread because we were trying to do all our marketing campaign before Segwit2x (before we know it was cancelled) and I believe something is missing in the translation in proposal here. I have clarified about marketing and airdropping in my post yesterday, and I hope it helps with your concerns.

The integration of Dash was a nice surprise but I still remain a tough nut to crack. I prefer you add the cost of development for InstantSend in the budget so then you can IS the airdrop and market it like the king feature it is in the crypto space. That I can vote yes on. Make it big, make it instant, make it loud. 1000 Dash is big, I trust that you will be loud so you are only missing the instant part.

Hi, I don't want to be contentious - agree that things do move fast with crypto but that's why we should sometimes pause to think if there is a better way that gives more leverage - if we have to give free Dash away it just implies its value is zero or not worth anything on it's own merit.

Tough one, one the one side the benefit for DASH is higher giving out the money. On the other side I also don't like this precedent as others have noted.

While I don't like this proposal I think I'll hold my nose and vote yes if there's nothing better to do with the funds this month (gonna wait till later in the month to vote)... Hear me out... I think this will raise the DASH price most likely. That increase can be refunneled back into the governance system and pay for more proposals.

If the 1000 DASH had gone to huobi I would of course have voted no. However it's an airdrop. I would say 80% of all those users won't bother and will just sell their DASH immediately. If 20% look into DASH that's a win if there are really 100,000 people trading on their exchange.

We will make sure it goes to the customers and also, we will provide marketing and educational materials which raise customer awareness after they get the airdropped coins. Airdropping has proved to be very efficient in blockchain projects marketing, and we do have around 20~30k monthly active users at Huobi.
Reply

No, no, no. I mean, why do we give Dash, which has value away for nothing on an airdrop - this implies that we have to give it away for people to want it!

I'd be far more comfortable for some kind of bonus for people who want to purchase Dash (say, 5%) to drive some interest and liquidity, and some advertising related to the offer, but to give 330K+ away as an insignificant per-person airdrop makes zero sense. Please vote carefully on this one!

Huobi.pro has added Dash, and a joint press release, or series of press releases as well as some communications to users is appropriate, will NOT cost 300K+ and will lead to full order books in short order, as it has with most other major exchanges that have included Dash.
Reply

hi lemonysnicket,

You are not giving Dash away for nothing...at all.

We are not going to do the Airdrop as an isolated incident. We plan to do a more comprehensive marketing and educational campaign to reach millions of Chinese customers about Dash's uniqueness.

The airdrop, as part of the comprehensive campaign, would provide hundreds of thousands of people in China an instant chance to recognize Dash as a great cryptocurrency as well as an amazing application of blockchain technology.

We consider education and practice go hand in hand as one of the best ways to achieve mass adoption of cryptocurrency, and plan to do so with Dash as one of the cryptocurrencies which definitely deserves such adoption in China.

Your feedback and opinion is valuable to us and we will definitely consider your suggestion in our marketing activities.

What's the hurry? You submitted the pre-proposal literally less than 12 hours ago. We were still in the middle of discussion. Most importantly talking about an escrow option. You're not getting the Dash any sooner this way. Also we had very legitimate concerns towards the necessity of airdropping 1000 Dash for no real gain.

No from me.

If you actually can understand why this proposal is useless and potentially even hurts Dash. Imagine just creating $340000 Of inflation of your currency to just give it away(socialism) to other people for absolutely no reason just on the hopes that the users will actually use it. I don’t know any usecase for having .001 Dash other than sending an instant send to transfer some pennies between wallets. And the users receiving this Dash won’t even have this ability on top of it. So it’s easy to see how this proposal is absolutely worthless.

Could you please add InstantSend compatibility to the integration? This will increase the support for your proposal because we will be receiving something significant and palpable for the 300k+USD investment.

What percentage of mainland Chinese investors still have access to trade on Huobi? I thought the Chinese government was blocking its citizens from trading cryptocurrencies in all manners possible. Is it now legal under Chinese law for all Chinese citizens to trade on Huobi simply because you moved your headquarters to Singapore?
Reply

We'd like to keep it simple this time, to focus on the airdrop as the beginning of our partnership. We will consider and evaluate InstantSend compatibility in future and keep Dash Community updated.

As per the regulations in China, thanks for your notice. We relocated our headquarter to Singapore to provide better and more comprehensive services to our global users, and crypto-crypto trading is in compliance with current regulations in China. Thanks.

Note that 3a “adding Dash to Huobi” is already done. So this proposal is really only about the airdrop as we’ve already been added to the exchange.

Link:
https://medium.com/huobi-global/huobi-pro-launches-dash-on-november-9th-a8a6c9109bcc

My inclination is to wait a bit to see what other proposals are submitted this cycle. I wouldn’t want this to bump something good, but if the funds are just going to be burned... well then even a simple airdrop will probably end up being a bigger benefit to Dash as having 1000 less coins in circulation really means very very little in terms of valuation.

I have read the yes and no opinions, and in both cases I agree.

Now, we must think:
Who we are and where we are going next year 2018

Many people are coming and more will come for the free money, without ROI guarantees

The DAO has to be more participatory and we have to start debating among ourselves in the proposals or pre-proposals, and we should not vote lightly.
We must negotiate with people who make proposals and more if they are large quantities. And when in doubt, say NO and come with another offer.

They have already integrated Dash, ask for 1000 dash, it seems a lot to me.

I will continue reading to my colleagues, I do not have a clear answer. But the balance does not lean to the YES..

We must ask for improvement options

I ask you to add: dash / eth

I await an answer, thanks.

"c. Marketing. We will post announcements on our website and Social Media which will be exposed to our millions of users, Dash will definitely get more popular in China. Huobi’s marketing channel will includes:

Twitter: 35k Followers
WeChat:160K Followers
Chinese Media: Jinse.com, BitKan, BTC123, AICoin
WeChat &QQ Group: more than 100 groups
Huobi Brilliants’Talk Show: 8 million audiences in total"

Adding a coin to your exchange is simple. It does not cost 300k. Also giving users free Dash to "experiment with" on your exchange will not help Dash. They can't use instant send or private send which are key features on your centralized exchange. Also because it is an exchange, once given to the user it's easy for someone to want to just trade Dash for another coin. No sense in funding this.

Voting YES. No proposal is a sure thing but DASH needs more exchange adoption, and eventually, more fiat pairs. We need to fuel this adoption as much as possible. More people getting some dash and learning what it is will always help to spread the word and create new users.

Also, I understand that most coins get on exchanges for free. The point is that DASH is one of the only communities that has the power to incentivize exchanges and their customers greatly to make it way easier to do so. Let's use that power to spread faster than any other asset.

By "exchange adoption" I mean the people that use the exchanges too, not just being on the exchange. It's similar to the other give aways where you set people up with new wallets only this time it's driving exchange adoption. When people find out that the free dash is from the treasury they will most likely be curious what a treasury is. This kind of thing leads to educating new users regarding our best features. We're one of the only blockchain systems that can do this and people need to learn why that is such a powerful thing.
