That video gives the impression that many of the "Dash accepting merchants" don't actually accept Dash as a payment.
In my opinion we should hire an independent party (a journalist?) to go through a random subset of the Dash accepting merchants and report if they can actually accept Dash.
This could either
1) validate that the number of Dash accepting merchants is accurate
2) give us a more accurate estimate of the real number of merchants and bring our expectations back to reality
In my opinion both of these outcomes are positive outcomes compared to the uncertainty.
