Hey Dash Nation! My quick history is that I read an article about Steemit in Rolling Stone in October. Then I tore my Achilles tendon playing basketball and was laid up and spending a lot of time on the computer and so I started a Steemit account and from there starting learning a lot about the world of cryptocurrency. I've been blown away. I was quickly enthralled by Bitcoin and the power that it seemed to have to promote large scale change for many people of the world. And from there have been led into Dash and am really just blown away by the promise it has, particularly the governance system and the creative solutions for creating a closed-loop, positive feedback system that Bitcoin and other coins seem to lack.
I'm an organic farmer and permaculture designer and enthusiast. I believe that Dash dovetails perfectly with my desire to shift power back to individuals, to empower people to grow their own food, to improve their ecosystem, to recognize what true wealth is and to enrich their lives. Myself included. My farm, Tapalou Guilds, is located in southern Vermont and is accepting Dash as payment for our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares this year. I don't know if anyone will actually do it, but it's part of the master plan to put this concept on people's radar. We just got a shout-out in this week's live Dash: Detailed! Right after a bit about the company accepting Dash for male enhancement pills. HA! My aim is to enhance humanity in its entirety - all sexes, all parts!!!
I've already been talking to some local businesses about accepting Dash and when I get enough of a plan together, I hope to submit a proposal for some real boots on the ground activity in my town. I'm not sure if it might be wise to wait until Evolution comes out for that though. I tried to put a wallet on my iPhone and had a hell of a time doing it and I don't want to scare anyone away with a poor user experience right off the bat. I'd welcome thoughts on that.
Cheers to everyone who keeps this machine chugging! Go Dash Go!
