Sponsorship of Bit-by-Bit After School Mentorship Program
VOTED ON AND APPROVED BY DASH MASTERNODE OWNERS 09/30/2017
FUNDED WITH 131 DASH ($40K USD)!
We are proud to sponsor Iowa State University Computer Engineering students August Domanchuk and Jake Hemmerich and their proposal for Bit-By-Bit.org to the Dash Treasury. When August was a high school student, he created a gofundme campaign to fund Bit-by-Bit, an after-school program for High School students to mentor and educate underprivileged elementary school students in STEM-related subjects. This program provides a great opportunity for high school students to be good role models and teach young, at-risk elementary school students the building blocks to participate and contribute to the tech-based economy of the future.
Bit-by-Bit.org has developed a team of regional managers and student-teachers which will be compensated in Dash for their services, creating a micro-economy of the Dash ecosystem. This, along with teaching their students about blockchain technology, will create a developer feeder system to support the Dash Network and further increase adoption of Dash as THE digital cash currency!
