Proposal description

Our proposal is about further expansion of Dash payments to global markets. This is a next step to our global campaign for making Dash the most usable cryptocurrency in the world.

In fact, we are now getting multiple requests from merchants in different countries, who want to integrate our cryptocurrency processing system. That’s why we’ve decided to expand to Europe, starting from UK which was the biggest request we've had so far

However, in order to make our system usable in that region, we have to extend our legislative and organizational structure. This includes company registration, bank accounting services and the technical integration itself. PLUS we need to build public awareness just as much as we did in the local market - that’s why we’ve included marketing expenses.
 
Key points:
