Dash Convention Europe announcement
By Rafał - 2019-08-22
The Dash Convention Europe, a community-organized conference to highlight the ever-growing Dash ecosystem, has been officially announced for the 28-30 September, 2019 and will take place near Zurich, Switzerland, at the Bitcoin Embassy.
The Dash Convention was organized with input and support from a wide variety of Dash groups and will feature speakers and presentations from the various Dash projects.
Jan Heinrich Meyer, CEO & Founder of the Dash Embassy D-A-CH and co-organizer of the Convention, shared his vision towards this event:
“With the Dash Convention, we hope to provide a platform for the whole global Dash community, and also offer a good introduction for Dash newcomers. However, what I find most exciting about this concept is that everyone in the community can contribute and take part in shaping it. The Dash Convention is an event by the community for the community. I am really excited to see what kinds of partnerships and innovations are forged at the convention.
Celebration of an ever growing community
The successful organization of the Dash Convention represents an opportunity to showcase Dash’s strong global community and ecosystem, which thrives far outside of contributions from its Core team. Because of Dash’s decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), any member of the community can submit a proposal to work for Dash, and pending masternode approval can simply begin official work.
This has led to the spontaneous creation of a large and decentralized ecosystem, a fact that Fabio Bossi, CEO and co-organizer of the Convention introduced in his previous speech:
“The idea to organize a Dash convention was born in a community chat, and with so much exciting news and projects going on in the Dash ecosystem, we wanted to get the Dash DAO to crypto-friendly Switzerland. Speaking as CEO of Bitalo AG, a recently launched German P2P crypto-broker that manages everything on-chain, Dash with instantly settled and super cheap on-chain transactions is a perfect match for our business model, and we believe strongly in supporting its future.”
A globally known event
n addition to the main conference, a final day of celebration has been reserved in Munich for Oktoberfest, called Dashtoberfest, according to Bossi:
“We also managed to get a 50-seat reservation for Oktoberfest in Munich, which is almost impossible, and are looking forward to celebrating “Dashtoberfest” with Dash Core Group members, Dash funded organisations, business partners and friends of Dash.”
Despite the market movements since late 2017, Dash has continued to make strong growth in key adoption areas, steadily increasing the size of the entire ecosystem and community.
Dash/Nigerian naira trading has been added to peer-to-peer exchange CoinCola, while Dash has been added to Brazilian merchant solution and bill pay service Kamoney, as well as Mexican exchange Cubobit.
Parallel to this, the Uphold brokerage service has been added to the iOS Dash wallets following a removal of the withdrawal fee, and Bitnovo has expanded to Portugal, enabling remittances to the previously mentioned key areas, facilitated by Dash Text’s expansion to support easier global sending options for Dash. This comes as Dash has discovered unique and successful applications in Venezuela, as well as making inroads as a popular ecommerce solution.
