This is gonna be a very quick post, angry g/f trying to get my attention.

I've recieved all of the paperwork for the Conference organisation, posted relevant practical points on the conference thread here;
https://nxtforum.org/nxt-promotion/bitcoin2014-btc-foundation-conference-amsterdam-may-15-17/

I want to keep this thread for finance discussion, the other thread for more practical issues.

On funding: So far I've commited to spending approximately 100,000 NXT, which is covered in my first post here.
That covers most of the big expenses for the conference, but we can certainly spend another 50-100,000 on the remainder, depending really on how many people are going to be sponsored by NXT to attend.

So my official budget estimate is 150,000 to 200,000 NXT, depending on how large we make the conference team and on the exchange rate.

I really need to have the first 100,000 paid out to the Bitcoin2014 team, Ebereon and myself as soon as possible, so I'd like to ask salsacz to commit 100,000 from his conference fund to immediately cover this.
This will leave 85,000 NXT in the fund for the Vienna conference, and they will also be able to have the RPS, so that comes to a 50/50 split between the 2 comferences.

Further costs could be covered by the MC or possibly private donations.....

But I need to have these funds rolling by the beginning/middle of next week, any later and it will start to be a problem.

all 185k Nxt are available if we decide to spend them.

Who decides how much of that marketing fund will be allocated, and when will that decision be made? 

I have NO ISSUES with EvilDave's proposal and support it -- but I have NO IDEA how much of the Marketing Committee fund we are being asked to commit.

All I need is some clarity on this specific point, and then I'm ready to cast my vote.

Dave: please update the OP, where would be:

1) how much Nxt you need (from conf fund (now 185k))

2) NXT ID

3) short description of what is it for

I hope you're OK with this request.

@salsa...no problemo. I'll update in a minute or 10.....need to create a new, seriously secure NXT account first.

Just to be completely clear: my initial request is for 100,000 NXT from the (salsacz-administered) conference fund, currently at 185,000 NXT.
Like I said, this will allow Vienna (or later conferences) to have 85,000 NXT still available from the salsacz fund, and will also have paid for the RaspPiSolar.

@joefox: I would like the marketing fund to be able to commit to a minimum of 50,000 NXT (maximum 100,000) for further conference funding. This will cover promotional material (Damelon, not very expensive), any additional ticket costs, video/photo costs, my further worked hours and a few small bounty payments for logos and general help.

Updated  my OP, 13/04/2014 01:15.

By the way: I spoke to the camera man today and he is not in possession of a press card as he is not a member of the press, but rather a documentary maker.
So he will not be able to enter on a press basis.

He wíll be available to make material for different purposes, so we can ask him to film material that can be used multiple times in videos.

Nope, he is a friend who likes to do me a favour :).
If we can give him something, that would be nice, but he is doing this because he likes doing nice things for people.

Salsa, Dave has added his request to the OP as you asked.

It's a lot of money, but since we all had a lot of time to think about it and we - here - agree it is a good idea to do it, I'll go sync the blockchain...

PS: but only thanks to bitcoinpaul's +1

Salsa:

Thank you very much, mate. Just checked, the 100 kNXT is safe on the account.
I'll start getting rid of it today, paying Ebereon for the RPS and getting some BTC together for the conference payment.

I'll be keeping a full record of how the funds are spent (or converted to BTC, then spent.), if anyone wants to check my numbers.

(thanks to bitcoinpaul for the +1, btw, have an upvote !)

EDIT: I started liquidating my own personal NXT supply on DGEX and Cryptsy to get in early with BTC purchases, but the market blows right now. I'm afraid that the 100,000 won't go as far as i'd hoped. I'll prioritize paying Ebereon and the conference, put my own payments on hold for a while, and hope that NXT makes some gains soon......

There are 185k Nxt for conferences. Till summer there is only Vienna and it already has a fund of 15k by McJavar.

Just to clarify:

The 15k were private donations and had nothing to do with the MC.
