    Hi guys, I saw this article last night on Cryptocoin news and thought it would be a great opportunity for Dash integration: https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/bitcoin-fees-rise-openbazaar-looks-altcoin-payments/ I see Charlie Lee from Litecoin has already assigned a developer to integrate into...

    CAMEROON CRYPTO EDUCATION PROJECT

    I'm from South Africa and see how cryptocurrencies can and will benefit the African market. In fact, because there is such a strong push for mobile payments on the continent I think that the crypto revolution will take place here rather than anywhere else. I had a similar education based...

    Hey TanteStefana, I actually reached out to a payment service provider already (www.payfast.co.za). They were interested in the integration as they already provide bitcoin integration to a number of online retailers around South Africa. They need an exchange that they can provide ZAR - Dash...

    Makes a lot of sense. We have a few bitcoin payment integration services so I will get a sense from them as to a willingness to accept Dash. Thanks again for the input

    Hi Ewok, thanks for feedback. Agree on the merchant front. My feeling is that if people are holding Dash and wanting to spend it, they will help drive the merchants to adopt Dash. This customer driven approach could be more effectively than simply going to merchants and saying 'Hey, you should...

    Thanks so much for the feedback! Yes that is exactly what I am thinking - once students own Dash they will have an emotional link having 'earned' it and will have to open a wallet to receive it. This will then get merchants to start adopting Dash since students will not want to go through the...

    @JZA, thanks so much for the feedback and comments. In response to specific points: 1. I've updated my post - my mistake! I was actually aware of the other coin but wasn't sure the correct referral for a unit of Dash. 2. Francophone and Portuguese countries make up probably 10-20% of the...
