    After reading this I understand how the trolls found something to chew on. Thanks for an honest account of the beginnings. Not a perfect beginning but mea culpa is a great response.

    I think you should add that Dash and DarkCoin are the same thing.

    There were a couple of posts on BCT that were very good. Since I think someday this thread will be referenced for research, I would like to include them here.

    Nice to have this story up here Evan. Although we haven't officially met, I've known and supported the project really early on. Then unfortunately life and obligations were taking too much of my time and eventually I forgot about Darkcoin :-( So this story is a really nice reminder for me.

    Congrats on everything! The idea, the passion, the work, everything that has brought us, all of us, here!

    This was great rebrand. DarkCoin just had shady connotations to it.

    Wow! It's funny to see the thread where it all started 3 years ago... Even though DarkCoin perfectly explains Dash's most powerful feature (anonymization technology), Dash sounds more powerful - instant transaction DASH from one wallet to another ; )

    It's exciting to see the improvements over the last 3 years, the shift in branding (good move imho) and to look forward into the Dash dev roadmap for the near future.
