This year’s ‘Decentralized’ conference will be held at my hometown of Athens, Greece between the 30th of October and 1st of November 2019. As some of you may remember, I set up a similar worker last year for a plain sponsorship of the conference by BitShares which went really well. Conference last year was attended by me, Ryan R. Fox, Michael Taggart and spokesperson Annemieke Dirkes and we had 2 session talks and a booth that gathered a lot of interest from attendees. Information about last year’s event can be found here with details on the previous worker presented here.
This year we got a very nice offer from the organizers to form a partnership with the University of Nicosia and to co-present Decentralized 2019 (i.e. Decentralized 2019 by University of Nicosia and BitShares). More information about Decentralized and the speakers/agenda this year can be found here: https://www.decentralized.com/.
The partnership offer includes:
The goals of this worker are as follows:
The team to attend the conference via the 25 passes included in the sponsorship package should be varied in terms of focus. The worker will pay for travel and accommodation of all representatives.
First of all, 4 BitShares-based businesses will each receive passes and expenses for 2 people in order to attend and present one speaker session each.
The businesses (TBC) are:
This leaves an additional 17 invitations to be distributed which I am currently in discussions in order to finalize. The following is just suggestions:
Due to an ideal deadline for completing a 20% down-payment on the partnership package prior to July 10th in order to take advantage of the University of Nicosia’s next media push starting then, this worker is put on-chain for voting ASAP with some details (such as the exact members of the team taking part) still to be determined.
For the same reason, the worker has a higher daily pay to ensure required funds are acquired in time. The worker pays out bitCNY, or alternatively in BTC on the Bitcoin blockchain to reduce spreads (in this case converstion costs must be included in the invoice and match going market rates). Cost breakdown is as follows:
|Partnership package & IFF membership||Up to 931,711.50 CNY (135,500 USD)|
|Travel expenses (flights accommodation etc.) Up to 13.753,80 CNY (2,000 USD) pp * 24 people||Up to 330,091.20 CNY (48,000 USD)|
|2,000 x BitShares-branded gifts (e.g. USB stick)||Up to 55,012.80 CNY (8,000 USD)|
|Promotional Material production||Up to 48,136.20 CNY (7,000 USD)|
|Other unexpected expenses (full Invoices will be presented if incurred)||Up to 10,315.30 CNY (1,500 USD)|
