Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday!
In so many ways, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. exemplifies what many of us are trying to do for society by creating workable digital currencies, free from the corruption of Institutions and manipulation by Governments. It's nothing short of taking back the control of our lives from government and too powerful institutions, and hopefully establishing a system that makes it infinitely harder for them to wage war on each other at the behest of corrupt corporations. All done, slowly, but surely, in peace.
And what a quote, eh? It really fits the Dash team. I know of no other team than the Dash team, who continuously improve Dash, with an unrelenting search for excellence. God bless you Dr. King, and all your family. Thank you for the most excellent message, we continue to try to learn from you and take heed.
Wow, what a week! What a 2 weeks
LOL! It all started immediately after my last post
Another budget passed for January, The preparations for the Miami conference has been feverishly worked on, from the nice pamphlet, to the Instant X soda machine and the paper wallet give-away. kot gave me a nice low down on all the things he's been working on, boy is he a busy man! As I mentioned above, he got the miami pamphlet finished, and he created some nice marketing graphics, which you can use yourselves in your own work. Kot is also working on the Electrum-Trezor wallet and of course, kot is coordinating the work with the Lamassu ATM intigration. He is quite the backbone behind the scenes and it's hard to list all of them. Just know kot is indispensable, even if you don't see him on the forums much
yidakee also got back to me about what he's been up to. Yidakee is truly the Dash handyman, with his handies everywhere, LOL. Oh, he's doing some really cool side projects with other members, fernando, tungfa and Minotaur along with kot above, and if they pan out, it'll be pretty awesome, but that's all I can say. Yidakee is also working on porting OpenBazaar to Dash, but that's a long term project and with all the stuff going on for the conference, all hands are on deck. So once again, another team member who kindly took the time out to let me know what's up, but is extremely busy! If an entity can have 2 backbones, yidakee would the second
Finally, lots of news, with the combination of Mike Hearn quiting Bitcoin and writing a disillusioned good bye article, Bitcoin took a nose dive a couple of days ago. So silly how the market reacts so drastically to any ripple in the water. News that there was a substantial number of Dash stolen from Cryptsy over the last 16 months, and slowly sold off, at approximately 30,000 dash per month. Then peetering out last November, seems to have boosted the price of Dash, plus the drop in BTC prices, seems to have added to the Dash/BTC trading value. I guess we'll see how that pans out. Hopefully, Dash will start to reflect in price, what it's accomplished in development.
And that Dash and Drink soda machine has been so popular, it's been the main discussion on Bitcointalk.org for almost this entire two week period! So I think I'll post here, the soda winners who will get a coveted spot in the machine:
Potential Top 6
Thanks again to all the guys working on this, including camosoul, oaxaca, Raptor73, Sub-Ether and everyone else! You guys are the BEST!
And lets not forget MoocowMoo, who not only is a great stay at home Dad, but also an amazing contributor, always updating and adding functionality to his Dashman Masternode management program, InstantX soda machine programming, and tons and tons of support all 'round with so many projects, I forget what they all are!
It's been a very exciting 2 weeks, and undoubtedly, I've forgotten many things. Please feel free to add what you remember below. Perhaps, someday, we can use these threads as a diary of the early days of Dash
