In this video we talk about our first infrastructure proposal that will provide both services and an income stream to the network.

A few weeks ago the Dash Embassy D-A-CH presented a Dash Infrastructure program to sustainably grow the Dash Ecosystem.

Now it is time to start the first effort and make it real.

In General: Why invest in crypto-related infrastructure companies (Active Stakes)?

Compared to just spending money on infrastructure companies/projects or building them with treasury funds from scratch we believe there are some advantages by investing in already existing companies:
We will save a lot of time and money by using existing companies and infrastructure instead of creating them ourselves
We will be able to take part in the strategic decision making and we can direct those companies to where Dash needs them to go.
We will no longer be a replaceable currency but a stakeholder.
We will benefit from all income streams generated by those companies and relieve pressure from the Dash treasury
Our treasury´s massive strength is playing out now because we can start to buy companies. Other coins don't even have a plan to scale or worse, they don't even have funds to pay their developers. Even our largest competitor BCH has only limited money for active development. We are already moving decades away from other projects, if we start to develop our public ecosystem together with partner companies by partially owning them.

Rafael Schultz went to the Gamescom and talked to payment providers used in the game industry and to gaming companies interested in blockchain-/token-based gaming.

What kind of merchant is interested in cryptocurrency payments? There is no easy way to answer this question because every BTC-accepting merchant has an unique story behind his integration.
The Dash Embassy D-A-CH wants to talk to these 300 merchants for 3 reasons:
1. To understand why merchants are accepting Bitcoin.
2. To learn from their experience with cryptocurrencies as a payment method.
3. To tell them about the unique features that Dash offers to them.

And how do we want to reach out to them?
Have you ever received a cryptocurrency related e-mail from an entity that you have not yet established a relationship with? Have you clicked on it or have you deleted it because it is likely spam or something worse, maybe even a virus?
But what is with a letter? Would you open a letter when you receive one? You probably would, because letters are a much more serious form of communication and there can't be no virus in the mail.
We therefore hope that we will receive a much more positive feedback from reaching out via mail than it would be possible from online-marketing.
The packages will include informational material about Dash, some small merchandise and a “Dash accepted here” sticker. We will also provide support to every merchant that wants to know more about cryptocurrency, blockchain and dash and we will help them with the technical part of integrating Dash if they need help with it.
What are your thoughts on the path of action that we have chosen?

Meet Gökçe Phillips, a blockchain entrepreneur from Turkey who has invited us to speak at the Blockchain TR Summit in Ankara, Turkey, about Dash, its features, the DAO and the Dash Embassy concept. There are even talks about establishing a Dash Embassy in Turkey.
This country is in desperate need for a functioning currency because there is no bullish case to be made for the future of the Lira which already lost nearly half of its relative value in one year (90% inflation at the height) and it is very important to get a foot in the door as soon as possible.
Because of the devaluation, cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more popular in Turkey and it is estimated that nearly 20% of the population already own Bitcoin: https://think.ing.com/uploads/reports/ING_International_Survey_Mobile_Banking_2018.pdf
Turkey is also very important for Dash adoption in the D-A-CH region. There are currently more than 3 Million people of Turkish origins in Germany and Austria. Because of family ties and remittance between the two regions it is clear that adoption in one of the regions can help to foster adoption in the other region.

In May of this year we had a booth and a speaking slot at a conference called “Innovation for banks 2018”. Jan Heinrich Meyer gave a talk about cryptocurrencies and their governance structure, where he focused on the Dash DAO and its implications for the scalability of a monetary cryptocurrency. At the event he met Patrick Steiner from the Innovation Lab of the DZ BANK, the second largest banking group in Germany (Volksbank, Raiffeisenbank, Sparda, PSD and many more). He invited us to speak at the DZ BANK innovation roundtable about cryptocurrencies and their advantages. The first thing we mentioned was the success of Dash in Venezuela and why this could also happen quickly in places like Turkey. We also explained why exchanges in the developed world are making more money than traditional banks and why Dash is on the cutting edge of this technology. They were really interested when we talked about the current success of cryptocurrency ATM companies. The attendees were also amazed by our presentation and we are now invited to join the GENOhackathon which will take place in the German Microsoft office in Cologne in November. The two topics we want to pitch at the Hackathon are Multi-Signature Wallets for bank customers and the integration of Dash into their ATM-network. To make the perfect case for Dash, we are joined by two developers from the Core team: Alexander Block (codablock) and Alex Werner (obusco). We are really excited about the possible outcome of this Hackathon and we will keep you up to date. We hope that our ideas will resonate with the decision makers at this event.

Rafael Schultz has again visited the Audi Denkwerkstatt (Audi Innovation Factory) to talk about how Dash could be used by Audi once Evolution is released. The ideas that were discussed are not so much about Dash as a payment method but about how Dash could be used to fuel some sort of IoT system in the future.
The ideas are of course early stage but we are now more than ever excited about the release of Evolution.

The task of the Dash Embassy D-A-CH is to educate people in German-speaking countries about cryptocurrencies in general and Dash (Digital Cash) in particular. The free education offered by the organization, which is funded by the Dash DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), includes workshops and webinars, the publication of information materials, and advice to merchants and consumers on the use of Dash.
