What is going on with CryptoCapital and Coinapult? Wasn't this supposed to be done like 2 months ago and accepting Dash already? Where is the really impressive Trade Manager? Are we still looking for a spot for Daniel's ATM?

So it looks like Dash is only focused on helping businesses that ask for money. How about Dash finds real businesses and gets them to accept Dash? Like Overstock, Newegg, Airbits, CheapAir, etc. And if they take InstantX they can confirm the transaction right away. Maybe add a video streaming service or game downloading store. If debit cards and ATMs are going to be the only way Dash will be used, then Dash doesn't need InstantX and users will probably just use the more stable BTC to load their debit cards anyway.

Evan's speech was much better. Whatever training he got helped.

Wasn't the website test version released. That can be added as an almost done right?

Coinapult integration of Dash seems like a mirage.
