currency to facilitate international expansion

Strike Social holds the distinct honor of being the largest YouTube ad 
optimization firm, with half of its revenue coming from Facebook and other 
digital ad platforms, such as Amazon, DoubleClick, Snap, Twitter, LinkedIn and 
Instagram. Strike Social operates in 14 different fiat currencies, which can 
access 40 countries outside the U.S.

"It's hard to express how labor intensive, painstaking and expensive it is for 
companies to operate across borders in fiat currencies," says Patrick McKenna, 
Strike Social's ( ) chairman and co-founder. "The cost 
to manage a global operation in your own accounting and finance departments is 
tough, and in most cases, you have to hire local tax specialists in each 
country to help you stay in compliance with laws to keep banking."

It was a four-year march by Strike Social to establish four separate foreign 
subsidiary entities and set up 10 different traditional banking relationships 
in eight countries. Still, the company couldn't reach a few major economies, 
such as Brazil and India. 

"Adding Dash as a payment gets us the rest of the world, and with their 
negligible transaction fees, it's a home run for us and our customers," McKenna 

The global digital ad spend ( 
) is expected to hit $269 billion next year, reaching a total of $335 billion 
by 2020. "We'll take the whole thing in Dash if we have to," says McKenna.
