[MC] Funding requests for BitCoin2014 conference.
« on: April 06, 2014, 08:18:43 pm »

Guys/gals/beasts-from-beyond:

I'm trying to find time to post an update for the BTC2014 conference thread, together with a comprehensive budget, but there are 3 payment requests that need to be resolved fairly quickly, so I'm going to just submit them here, and then incorporate them into the overall budget later on.

Number 1:
Our billing for the Contributing Sponsor slot at the conference itself needs to be paid soon. I sent a copy of the billing to salsacz a while ago, but I've just recieved a little reminder to pay from the BTC team leader. Total for this is € 1500, billing can be completed in BTC or fiat.

Number 2a:
The RaspPiSolar is (almost) complete, built and tested for us by Ebereon. It would be good to pay him before he ships it out, he has made a lot of up-front costs to build it for us. I'll send Ebereons bill to salsacz, it comes to €280 including €17 shipping costs, but not including batteries, see 2b

Number 2b: Because of shipping regulations, Ebereon can't include batteries with the RPS when he ships it, so I have to buy batteries for it. I've located a supplier for the correct (seriously specialised) batteries and will order them tonight, if I can get my credit card out of my wallet.  Total cost, inclusive post+packing is €75.

Number 3:
My personal billling for the hours that I've put in so far comes to 6250 NXT, covering my billing for around 15-20 hours work on the conference up to the beginning of this month.  I'm putting in a lot of time here, and I need to see something back for it......

Summary:
Bitcoin2014:  € 1500 or 73529 NXT (@ €0.0204/NXT)
Ebereon:      €   280 or 13725 NXT
EvilDave:      €    75 or  3676  NXT (batteries)
EvilDave:      €   150 or  6250 NXT (work hours, calculated on last weeks rate, €0.024/NXT)

This comes to a grand total of: 97,180 NXT.
Seems like a lot of NXT, and it is, but that has covered most of the expected big costs for the conference.

Update 13/04/2014:
Based on the above totals, I would like to make a formal request to salsacz to transfer 100,000 NXT from the conference fund to the following NXT account:

17812184667093299484

These funds will be used (as stated above) to pay for:  the sponsorship costs for Bitcoin2014, the purchase/build costs for the RaspPiSolar and for my worked hours up until 01/04/2014

I would also like to ask the MC to consider my request for a further 50,000 to 100,000 NXT funding for the remaining conference costs.

Salsa,

Can you clear up how much of this will be difinitely covered by the funds you are administering?

That way we know how much will be needed from the MC funds.

Thanks  :)

So is this all covered by the fund or not?

Please specify how much will come put of your fund max.

Then we can see what amount we need to cover.

If it can all be done from your fund, please tell us.

Thanks  :)

Owright boys...

3 points:

Exchange rate, bugger...we'll have to redo all the numbers, hope NXT goes back up to save some maths work.

Ebereons RPS is also going to Vienna, in principle.

It would be good to have the Bitcoin2014 sponsor slot paid, then I can exert a bit more pressure to get the bloody speaker slot sorted.

@Damelon...r u in scary clown mode again....sooon?

+1 -- I can't make a decision here without this piece -- and I know Dave is under some pressure to get the finances sorted ASAP (like, within 18 hours)

all 185k Nxt are available if we decide to spend them. If this fund will get to the zero, we will have to use the big fund/crowdfunding kickstarter, but it won't be sooner than in June. That time we will have probably sorted out that roadplan, like we are working on in a speaker topic. So the budget is and it is still big.

- what is the best number of Nxters that could help to the event?

- what about travel and accomodation expenses for Nxters and a speaker?

- what about tickets for Nxters/speaker?

- what about costs of the booth items?

EvilDave,

what about setting of Android TV stick for Amsterdam and all upcoming conferences? As I understand, Fatih didn't succeed with his own. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Price for the stick is 75 EUR plus shipping cost within Europe. Setting the stick is my expenses, no need to refund.

Damelon had someone lined up for that if I remember correctly.

We discussed that he could get in for free? on a press card.

salsacz;
Going through your points:

so the questions are:

- are we having a speaker slot there?
Yes, but it's taking a long time to get this confirmed. Latest news is that l8orre will be confirmed in a speaker slot Monday.

- is cameraman coming?
Damelon is on this.

- what is prepared for the booth we have reserved?
Check the main Conference thread:
https://nxtforum.org/nxt-promotion/bitcoin2014-btc-foundation-conference-amsterdam-may-15-17/
RaspPiSolar is ready for the stand, promo materials need to be sorted (Damelon again...)

- what is the best number of Nxters that could help to the event?
As many as possible, IMHO. 4-5 minimum,really.

- what about travel and accomodation expenses for Nxters and a speaker?
Good question, is that going to come out of the conference fund ?

- what about tickets for Nxters/speaker?
Again, from conference fund or not ?

- what about costs of the booth items?
RPS is going to be at other conferences, so Eb needs to be paid out of conference funds. Other booth items are not yet decided on.

I can't make decisions on my own about some of these costs, for example travel/living expenses for attendees. That needs to be discussed by the MC.
Once the above 100 kNXT is paid, we can then set the remaining budget.....

Lets hold off for a while on making any extra commitments. Do people want to see an Android stick forging away at the conference or is the RPS enough?

This is probably the headlining crypto conference for Europe this year, maybe in the world. So, yeah....

I've finally recieved the info pack with contracts, logo information, etc, so I'll go thru it in the next few hours and see what needs to be sorted out.

Cameraman was already confirmed.
He works for Dutch television, so yes: he is pro.
I'm currently seeing if he also has a press card, as he is mainly a documentary maker, but he might have one.

References are available, but I am not going to make them public as I haven't checked that with him, yet.
