    Evan mentioned fixing Bitcoin's scalability problem using the masternode network to achieve as many as 1 billion tx/s. This means we are able to be the global currency!
    And the instant transactions makes it so we can compete with credit cards. The flexibility and instantaneousness of credit cards combined with the fungibility and security of cash: We are DASH!

    We're a step closer to WORLD DOMINATION! Next we need to invade Poland and then.....Nah I'm messing lol

    That's another point for me to add to my list, thanks :D The more people are aware that there's a better, faster, more secure, and privacy-protecting payment system out there (Dash) the better :D

    Is there already or will there be a device that can and will store someone's wallet on it? So when you walk into a shop etc a payment can be processed instantly using that device.I would look but I'm at work and the internet is ridiculously slow :p

    An Android wallet exists, but we still need an iOS wallet. And the existing wallet doesn't support Darksend or InstantX at the moment as it's just a fork of the mobile wallet for Bitcoin without many modifications. :)

    Ah ok that sounds crazy :D Nice! :D This has probably already been brought up but with NFC on mobile phones would this pose a threat at all even if NFC is switched off? Like could someone not steal all of your data from your phone from a foot or so away? I read on Hack Forums (I think it was there) that someone could also steal your card details from a foot away using some scanning & storing device.

    Would it be worth investing in a 2nd mobile phone which will act solely as a wallet which will only be switched on for transactions and then turned off again once the transaction is complete? Or is there strong encryption that prevents anyone from using data stolen from a device?

    Sorry to ask so many questions, I'm just really curious and want to see how it's going into the future :D This also allows me to fully answer the question when people ask "Well how will my wallet be safe?" when I mention mass adoption to them.

    Thanks again for taking the time to reply by the way :D

    I have copied these points into a temporary page of my presentation and will make sure I hit all of them in the final presentation.

    The presentation is a work in progress you can review and criticize here

    Ah cool thanks :D

    I'll add another two which (if you choose to you can add):

    12) Active Support - Both the developers and the community are always on hand to answer questions and support any member regardless of their question. This is extremely important as it encourages new members and investors to adopt Dash as they know they will have the support there should they have any queries. Most if not all queries are responded to within 24 hours. This further instills confidence in not only the community but the currency itself.

    13) Can't be taxed - Where Dash is de-centralised it means that no government or regulator can monitor your Dash. This means you don't have to worry about paying tax on it but you can also look at Dash as a long-term investment as it will always be there for you to sell at any time. Where safety deposit boxes are no longer easily available in the UK for cash deposits, you can now invest your money in Dash which is safer than a safety deposit box as you have 100% control over it at all times. If being hacked is your worry then you can store your wallet on an external hard drive or USB and once you're finished accessing your wallet you can just eject the device and it's now completely safe. Something that isn't connected to a network can't be hacked.



    Ok so points 12 and 13 I have typed up as if I were giving a presentation so it saves you a headache having to think too much about them. I am still yet to check out your presentation but I will do in a sec :D If I can help in any way with wording etc then please let me know and I'll do my best.

    Thanks

    My dear ambassadors
    due to the rebranding and all, we seem to be a bit at a standstill in the moment.

    Which honestly surprises me a bit.
    Sure we can wait for new logos and big presentations and the big BTC convention to come to town,
    and that is all great, do NOT get me wrong please,
    but i want to encourage again (i posted similar things before)
    that we as ambassadors can show presence of DRK - Dash in many ways
    and on different levels.

    My favourite these days are chat groups
    (Not IRC)

    I am running one locally - 44 Members
    + started/ encouraged another in a neighbouring Country - 350 Members
    + they are now planning 2 more different internet outlets. (Chat + FB style)

    As a member i am on 2 other chat groups, (no DRK) more BTC related, Any Crypto, Smart Contracts,....

    This all is a ton of work as you can imagine + foreign language (i live on google translate)
    but super interesting and fun
    the momentum you can create in these groups is amazing.
    people can finally talk about DRK - Dash, ask questions, get guides, get help, have fun,
    post pictures,..... friends bring interested friends, cryptonauts bring others, it can only grow bigger and spread the word.
    i wonder how many MN are actually in my 1 local chatgroup, (a lot, trust me)
    seriously, i am not saying i made them buy DRK or set up MN's. Not at all, I am just there talking (like always),
    helping out, explaining the tech, talking about ..... bla la la
    and it totally works and is a ton of fun. By now i met a lot from different groups in person,
    + have them on private chats .....

    BTC chat groups are a different ballgame, but much more interesting on a business level,
    as there i can meet new merchants, exchange owners, Journalist, other DRK's, ideas, PR people, get advice and tips for contacts or whatever, .....
    In all my good contacts i brought to DRK , 95% came from that one chat group.
    (New DRK Exchanges, Merchants, Journalist direct contacts, written stories, Publications, Company owners, whales, coders, webpages....)

    So i am not trying to say (at all) that you should join these chat groups
    i am wondering why you do not do the same ?
    ether
    - Start a DRK - Dash chat with a couple of guys, Telegram, Google, .... there are tons of Apps to make it easy to start.
    or
    - check around online for the 'good' big Chat Groups BTC related, Altcoin, Blockchain,.... (interesting connected members)
    (pick a good one as otherwise you have to deal with TROLLS, i imagine, i never had any problems)
    and you just hang around, learn the robes (who is what) and take it from there, super easy

    people will be excited to hear about DRK - Dash! finally a real Dash person to talk to,
    it works every time.
    and it catches momentum, people tell people, people read the chat history like newspaper (i did that for some time, not anymore)
    every time you say DRK - Dash it will create a reaction !
    i thought that could be a different approach to the Ambassadors,
    while we are waiting for rebranding (and in general)

    You guys should try it out
    just a thought
    ;)

    You should rewrite 13) a bit..

    The wallet is not safe if it has ever been exposed to the internet, it could have been copied without you knowing. Leaving it on USB memory sticks will create a false feeling of safety. If you want to store Dash safely you can create paper wallets which have never touched the internet, but the masses will not understand how to do this. But the good part is they will not have to neither because:
    In the future we will have mobile wallets which can be encrypted with an external RFID chip. Bitcoin already has this, we just need to fork it. Also hardware wallets like Trezor will make it safer. :D

    Ah ok cool thanks :D I'll be honest, I wouldn't know where to start with paper wallets so today I'll be on a mission to learn. I'm going to start a separate thread titled 'Paper Wallets' where I'll ask for help and suggestions. The information gathered in that thread will also hopefully help other members who would like to create paper wallets too.

    Thanks again :D

    Ooo, I'd love to contribute with the knowledge I have from making my own paper wallets. I'll see if I find the time, I'm going to travel today though, so I'm a bit busy atm :)

    Also, localized threads in the forums. I used to spend all my time in bitcointalk in the main darkcoin thread. Lately I have started to post more on the Spanish one and it is great because I feel it is moving faster and people are getting to know darkcoin better. Similar thing here at darkcointalk, although most people who are in this forum are already into darkcoin, so the effect is not that big.

    Hey guys
    as the rebranding is pretty much done
    i started reworking all the guides and videos (tx to buster + darkred).
    this will obviously take me a while (first 3 are done)
    but no worries, i think we are ready to relaunch the DAG !

    minotaur send out an email earlier to check in with the DAG's
    who is still committed and who is not. Lets see what comes back from that email effort and we take it from there.

    I might still put it on company expenses. I'm courting a new client who is a big player in security so it should be allowable. I'd love to go and it might be beneficial to my company and to Dash. I'll find out next week.

    fernando tungfa , You guys are so humble. It won't get to this level without both of your and the whole Chinese Core Dash Team member's hard work and support.

    The honor belong to the whole Team~!
    There are still so many works to do in China. So let's move~! ;)
