ajs-xmr submits CCS proposal to fund MoneroKon 2023

ajs-xmr1 has submitted a CCS proposal (draft)2 to fund the Monero Konferenco 20233 event, that should take place at La Fabrika4 in Prague, Czech Republic:

The total cost of the event is estimated to be around 164,000€. [..] The aim is to have at least the same number of participants as in Lisbon (200) with the capability to scale up to 400 attendees, around 30 speakers, and a number of workshops. [..] To take into account uncertainties [..] the CCS will be divided into 2 parts.

If the 554.47 XMR target is not met within 90 days of this CCS being merged, but the raised amount is more than 383.86 XMR, the funds would be committed for the Neuchâtel venue as an alternative to Prague.5

Total funding proposed: 383.86 (Neuchâtel) or 554.47 (Prague) (CCS#1).

ETA: 23-25 June 2023 (Prague) or 30 June-2 July 2023 (Neuchâtel).
