What an amazing day. First, I want to recognize the amazing work of TheDashGuy, Solarminer, moocowmoo, camosoul, Raptor73, and anyone else involved in the soda machine project. I'm telling you, having people actually see the technology in action drew interest to our booth, got people engaged in discussion, and really made it tangible for them. You could see people's faces light up when they saw it working, and everyone wanted to know what was happening behind the scenes to make it happen.
The amount of work and perseverance it took to complete that project on time amazes me... so proud of this community today, I cannot even begin to show my appreciation for those guys.
Just as an example of the impact, I talked to one gentleman today to owned an aviation fuel business. He immediately grasped what made Dash different when he saw that soda machine working. He said "I would like to be able to accept Bitcoin, but I can't have my customers waiting 10 minutes for a block confirmation, and I can't dispense $8,000 worth of aviation fuel without assurances that a transaction confirms, or I'll be targeted by fraud. So I see how this would solve my issue."
Literally every single person I interacted with today, and there were dozens, were supportive and excited by what Dash is doing. Even if they had never heard of Dash, by the time they left the booth, they knew what made Dash special and why it deserves to be a top ranked cryptocurrency. I even saw a couple of people buying Dash on the spot on their phones today.
Great job to everyone involved today... But tomorrow is when the real magic happens when Evan gets to take the main stage. This project is truly unstoppable!!!
