Obviously it's just a test mule. But you have to start somewhere. DASH is disruptive technology. It takes 20-30 minutes to explain WTF DASH is to somebody. You have to get somebody to want to use it.
I agree. So why won't someone put it in a store somewhere and hang around explaining it for a while? Post on a BITCOIN forum when you're going to be there to answer questions and demonstrate.
"What's that thing?"
"A vending machine that accepts DASH as payment."
"Well, that's kind of a big question. Have you ever heard of Bitcoin?"
"Yeah, wasn't that some online scam for drugs?"
"Well, it wasn't meant to be, but that's how it ended up due to a lack of features that they refused to fix... DASH is about fixing those problems and making a currency that is actually useful!"
"Hm, I'm skeptical... Prove it?"
"You got $5?"
"Give it to me and I'll give you the equivalent value in DASH on your smartphone."
"Ok, where's the App?"
"[show them where and install it]. Now push that receive button, let me scan that QR code that just popped up. Now, you give me $5, and I'll give you 1.2 DASH."
"Wait, that's less than $5?"
"Numerically, but dash is already worth 4x more than Dollars are, so that's how the exchange rate works."
"I'm not so sure."
"It's only $5, and I'll give it right back to you if you want. I'm not going to run off with 5 whole dollars man... I've got waaaayyyy more than that!"
"OK. [Hands me $5]"
"[I push send, his phone makes jingly sound.]
"Oh cool! I have DASH!"
"Now, see that same code on the machine?"
"Scan it, and send!"
"It already says 'thank you!'"
"Push a button!"
"Mmmm, this Coke tastes good!"
Is that really so hard?
