Good post. I am inspired! I've been on a DASH research binge recently!
Nice to have this story up here Evan. Although we haven't officially met, I've known and supported the project really early on. Then unfortunately life and obligations were taking too much of my time and eventually I forgot about Darkcoin :-( So this story is a really nice reminder for me.
Congrats on everything! The idea, the passion, the work, everything that has brought us, all of us, here!
