    We are waiting for official announcements about DASH soon. :)

    My unofficial opinion about "target market in the short to mid term" - All current Bitcoin users, especially:
    1. Investors looking for the Next Big Thing.
    2. Users who already understand importance of anonymity.

    There are some ideas for them:
    1. for first: https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-an-assessment-of-investment-potential.4140/
    2. for second: https://darkcointalk.org/threads/anonymous-payments-darkcoin-or-bitcoin-mixers.4190/
    Feel free to produce your own articles (preliminary bombardment) using this info before the Main Show will start! :).

    Sure, anyone can. No harm at all. Free speech for all.
    But more serious journalism might consider approaching the official channels, especially in such sensitive times as these, for more a more accurate story of whats going on here, which is what I think Juan is looking for.

    Yeah, I do want official info. Though getting a feel for the community matters as well. Hence why I posted here.

    I've been wondering about this retail angle: It sure seems attractive to pursue, but how will this work without mobile wallets? Maybe I'm missing something, but AFAICT there is only an Android wallet which is a ported Bitcoin wallet that doesn't support InstantX or DarkSend. Plus, its development pace seems really glacial.

    So I'm wondering: Does the foundation and/or dev team intend to do something about this, like hiring someone or setting a bounty?

    All mobile projects that we know of are from independent devs.
    Certainly in the horizon, its obviously one of the functions Masternodes will provide as full node - light wallets.

    We have an android dev actively trying to figure out how to implement IX and DS.

    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/android-wallet-v4.3899/page-2#post-45314

    No iOS wallet that I know of.
    The recent Ubuntu Phone (Aquaris 4.5) should in theory run both the QT and the daemon, trying to grab my hands on one to test...

    tbh, I'm not the most qualified to answer, but it seems some basic functionalities are still being prep'ed. We only just recently forked from bitcoin 0.9.3, we used to be a litecoin fork. So I *think* it should be easier, but core team is focusing on what they do best... core dev. So no official side project for now.

    This is important!. I am selling some dash to someone tomorrow. I will have to use my ipad and teamview into one of my rigs to do it..

    What I would like to happen is blockchain.info adapt to alternative currencies. I have been using the blockchain iphone app since before it was banned from the app store.. my original app from 3 years ago is still working. Never had the slightest problem with it. The only downside of this model is an 'online' wallet. That being said, we DO need an iphone solution.

    This very good. I think it is the best thing, we can do for Digital Cash - sharing information is extremely important.

    Guys, please don't use non-approved logos on events about darkcoin. The logo will be decided soon, and we will be able to use that everywhere. No reason to cause further confusion

    Interesting idea - but too complicated IMHO.

    IMHO the main problem of the future logo (and I hope designers will cope with it) - not to do it "cool", but write clearly, simply and unequivocally DASH, but to leave a hint of CASH.

    OF course I agree that we should not to use any non official logo on actual info about darkcoin/Dash, However here I believe it is very acceptable to throw around ideas. Who knows, the official logo may stem from ideas knocked around on a forum.

    So, if I understand you correctly, a proper mobile wallet would more or less need new functionality on the Masternodes? Evan mentioned something similar in the webcast. Is there any information on how this is supposed to work? I would imagine some sort of RPC protocol, ideally in JSON. Then, someone could basically build a mobile client with PhoneGap or something similar and have it run on a lot or mobile platforms at once. But this would also mean that every mobile client could cause a lot of work on the masternode. Not necessarily DDOS, but it would at least be too much for Rasperry Pi mns I suppose.

    In a nutshell

    a) I'm not the best person to answer
    b) we're a bitcoin 0.9.3 fork, so anything possible/coded for this version should be easily ported to DRK.

    So I *think* it's only a matter of someone who knows what he/she's doing, do it !

    From there on, yes, any implementation that is specific to Dark/Dash, has to be coded from scratch.
    Stuff like, for instance, Electrum, is easily ported to DRK/DASH

    It seems most people are pretty keen on the change to "Dash". If it can't be used, how about "Dhash" (pronounced "dash")?

    I have a substantial meetup set in concrete on March 28. I am going with DASH even if it muddies the water a little because the logo I use is not yet official. Take a look and if anyone is truly upset I will consider alternatives. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1ztk0jagePkzvi6RLQW9Flf0bdS50gVZsN1QPFbUK4Ok/edit?usp=sharing

    The 99th member just joined the meetup. We should bump over the 100 mark today or tomorrow. I suspect maybe 20 people will turn out for the actual meeting.

    Onward,

    BobLQ

    That spinning logo is the best thing since sliced bread - sliced bread having been invented the previous winter*
    Seriously - kudos to the original designers of both the logo and the animation. Another notch to this communities belt.

    Hello I'm a new user looking to buy an Amazon Dash button for Tide and Maxwell House. How do I go about purchasing it? Is it $3.91 each? Why does the price keep dropping? Thanks for the assistance!
