Please vote below Yes or No on this proposal placed in the CoE Rocket Chat Channel by Degerhan. The CoE itself has already discussed and voted yes, but, we would like to have the community vote as well before a final confirmation is made.
See below from Degerhan:
Background: I want to connect with the maximum number of active and interesting members of the community at numeraicon
Assumption: cost of travel may cause hardship for some and block them from attending
Proposal: Five “numeraicon fellow” need-based travel stipends. Designate a CoE member to privately receive messages, take the person’s word that this stipend is infact needed (no onerous proofs). Only requirement is that the person is active in the community. CoE privately and at their sole discretion decide who (if any people) receive it.
Estimated cost: ~$3-5k.
A Vote YES is for up to 5 need-based travel stipends of up to 1k USD max each.
If approved, please private message me (Aventurine) in the Rocket Chat channel. I will take names to the rest of the CoE for final approvals at which point travel reservation estimates will be requested. Payouts will be in NMR and adjusted to current market value in USD on each approval.
NJ is also willing to provide formal letters of invitation to the conference if needed for visas etc.
The voting period will be 48hrs so we can maximize time before conference
