H ello DigiByte Community!
DGBAT is excited to connect with you through our inaugural monthly newsletter. Here, you will find updates on our activities, news from the DigiByte Foundation, and from the DigiByte core team. In this maiden edition, we will introduce some of our members and fill you in on what we have been up to since May.
Meet the Team
The DigiByte Awareness Team (DGBAT) evolved as a community-led, grassroots marketing campaign from the efforts of community member Dereck de Mézquita (@xenobiologist). Key members, including Dereck and Rudy Bowman (who now make up the majority of the 13-person DGBAT Central), founded the group in May. DGBAT is made up of divisions such as Outreach, Social Media, Development, Writers and Fundraising, each loosely managed by a member of the central team. For a more detailed introduction, please read this post.
We work closely with the DigiByte Foundation and the core team. Josiah Spackman represents both the Foundation and the core team in DGBAT Central. Other members the community may recognize on Telegram include @Nigel @Sinone and @Glenn.
DGBAT launched a general fund to finance our outreach and marketing operations in May. Funds have been transferred from a single party wallet to a multi-signature wallet, with access granted to three members of the central team.
As of June 26, we have raised 245,000 DGB. 58,000 DGB has already been converted to fiat to complete the first tranche of legal fees. An additional 20,000 DGB was raised in DGBAT (via @Glenn) to finance listing expenses.
Thank you to members of the DGBAT and the larger DGB community for giving so generously. If you are considering donating to the general fund, please do so only through official sources. Beware of scammers posting fake DGBAT wallet addresses and sending private funding requests to your inbox.

You can follow our progress at:
We are pleased to share that DGBAT has successfully campaigned for DGB to be listed on two new exchanges OOOBTC and DX. Exchange. OOOBTC is a Singapore based exchange that provides DGB trading starting June 25, 2018.
Exchange is a NASDAQ technology-powered decentralized exchange. Clients can register starting July 2, 2018 for this service. Trading is set to begin on July 25, 2018.
In addition, DGBAT has partnered with Crypto Bantam to provide our community with DGB paraphernalia. Any time you shop with DGBAT referral links, the general fund will be credited with 10-50% of the sales price, depending on the specific items. Get your DGB gear and support DGBAT at the same time. We call that a win-win situation! Here are the links:
DGBAT has a dedicated YouTube channel where we post videos promoting the DigiByte Blockchain. Please subscribe to our channel (DigiByte Awareness Team), like our videos and leave any questions or suggestions in the comment section. We would love to hear from you!
We are running an awareness campaign concurrently with the World Cup, where we will donate 10,000 DGB to any charity of the top scorer’s choice. Follow along and join in on the fun with the hashtag #DGBATGoldenBoot.
Our team has been hard at work, sending two of our members to raise awareness through interviews with YouTube crypto content producers. You can check out the DGBAT interviews with @CryptoMentor99 and Joe Cosmides @Jsnip4.
Additionally, we are working on a brand new DGBAT website that will be a one-stop shop for all outreach, marketing and educational materials. Don’t worry, we’ll be looking out for you by making sure DigiTimes is on there as well. You’re welcome!
DGBAT is not only present on major social media sites but also active in growing our following. We are pleased to welcome Marcio Tereul, a Brazilian soccer player, to the DGBAT Social Media Team!

DGBAT is working to obtain a legal opinion on whether or not the DigiByte blockchain classifies as a security. This opinion will go a long way with our communication with U.S. regulatory bodies such as the CFTC and the SEC. It will also fulfill one of the requirements of major exchanges. Stay tuned!
