DASH’s. Best. Day. Yet. | DASH: Detailed

Hello! Welcome to Acapulco, Mexico at the Anarchapulco conference. You could say that this 24-hour block of time we are in right now could be considered Dash’s biggest day ever — at least that I know of. And I mentioned to Pete earlier that I could probably just get on DASH: Detailed today and say, “blah blah blah blah blah” and everyone would say, “Yes! Dash!” But I’m not going to do that. In fact, I’m just going to tell you everything you need to know. So let’s start with development updates. Oh! And what is the update I have to give you? That the migration from 12.0 to 12.1 is 100% complete. Yes, that means that enforcement is now turned on, meaning that only 12.1 masternodes are on our network right now. Miners are no longer able to cheat. And yes, even InstantSend has been turned back on. In the words of Flare, the might — the update — the upgrade to our network is 100% as of very recently. Something else that’s new in 12.1 that you may have not noticed — I didn’t notice it until I checked DashCentral the other day — is that ‘Abstain’ is now a voting option. So, a masternode can now vote ‘yes’, ‘no’, or ‘abstain’ on a proposal. And what does ‘Abstain’ mean? Well I saw a comment from community member macrochip that I thought was really apt, so let me read that for you now. The most useful thing about ‘Abstain’ is the fact that you can now un-vote after you already cast your vote but have decided to retract it without switching the results by 180 degrees — as in going from a full ‘yes’ to a full ’no’ or a full ‘no’ to a full ‘yes’ — but now, if you want to switch your vote rather, you can switch things by only 90 degrees, which is a ‘yes’ to a ‘meh’ or a ‘no’ to a ‘meh.” Well said macro. And the final development update is that the second quarterly core report call — that is, where Dash’s core developers get together on a live call and give investors both a progress report and take questions from them — is scheduled for March the 9th at 15:00 hours UTC time. Now up to a hundred people can listen to this call live — even if you’re not a Dash investor as long as you get one of the first hundred slots you can listen live as well as participate in the question-and-answer session that follows it. For anybody who doesn’t listen in on the live call, the audio and video portion will be published on our Youtube channel. Moving on to network statistics. Ok so as I had said, with enforcement now turned on only 12.1 masternodes are on the network. So, we have lost between 400-500 masternodes since turning enforcement on and so we’re now at 3,996 masternotes, or just about 4,000. Right? But you’ll see that this pattern is — rather that this is a pattern. This isn’t uncommon. Look at this chart here where you will see that this sort of dip in the master nodes has happened as every upgrade point that we’ve had over the past three years. So this is not at all an unexpected thing. And, hey, 4,000 masternodes did upgrade. But if you haven’t, I would encourage you to do so. Again, it’s 12.1.2. You can find it at Dash.org/Download. In mining, today’s hashrate is 2.4 Th/s. And this has actually been pretty much of a hold-steady more or less for the past two or three weeks, coming down only slightly from an all-time high hashrate of 2.78 Th/s that was reached a few weeks ago. To put this into context here is our three-month hashrate chart, our one-year hashrate chart, and our lifetime hashrate chart. Finally, in network statistics, the next superblock — which will be the first post-updates superblock — is set to be paid on March the 5th. So if you intend to vote on any treasury proposals that you’ve not yet voted upon, go ahead and do it before the superblock pays out on March the 5th. Now let’s move on to price movement. I know, it may be the primary reason you’re watching this show today. And yes, as of the time of recording this episode — I don’t know what it will be when you watch it — but as of right this moment, Dash has reached the number three spot in coin market cap, having displaced Ripple and being behind only our competitors Ethereum and Bitcoin. So wow. Big wow. At time of recording, the Dash to US dollar price is $31.95 a coin. This makes for a total market capitalization of 228 million U.S. dollars with 7.1 million Dash available — in existence. And a 24-hour trade volume of just under nine million U.S. dollars, which is the highest that I’ve ever seen it, by far — but I suppose that’s not surprising given today’s events. To put this market capitalization in context, here is our three month market cap chart. Our one-year market cap chart. And of course our lifetime market cap chart, having begun back in January of 2014. Alright, let’s move on to Business and Headlines. Of course, our market cap moves were covered by the the man with the plan — the man who’s on it — over at Finance Magnates, Avi Mizrahi, in this article that you see here. In addition, though Dash has been on the payment processor BlockPay for some time now, for whatever reason the news about that is coming out only now, and it’s coming out in full force. I don’t know what genius PR move it was to get something that happened in August of last year, if I hear correctly, to get talked about a bunch right now, but it is. So Dash being on the BlockPay payment processor was covered by CoinTelegraph twice, by PaymentWeek, and by BanklessTimes.com. I have not yet used BlockPay. I’ve seen someone have it on their tablet they were using. I didn’t get a good look at it so I would ask if any of you have used BlockPay, would you kindly leave a review of it in the comments section of this video? So that the rest of us can kind of get an idea of how it may or may not be useful in our situations or the situation’s of people we may know. In other business news, Australians can now exchange fiat Australian dollars to Dash using the website CoinSpot.com.au. And a very interesting, long-awaited development is that Dash is now supported by WallOfCoins.com. Now WallofCoins.com supports several ways of acquiring Dash through various countries — some involving bank transfer methods, others not involving bank transfer methods at all. They even support the very popular cash-in-the-mail option, so check out Dash on WallOfCoins.com. Because this is a pretty big development for us and it’s been another major step forward in providing an answer to the question we’re getting more and more of these days, which is, “How do I get some Dash?” And then again, I would like to ask for your feedback on one more thing. The website DashNearby.com — I have not yet used it. It looks to be another OTC trading website. If any of you have used DashNearby.com and can report to me about it in one way or another — it was great or it was horrible, don’t use it — whichever. Please just leave a review about that in the comments section below. I’m sure the rest of us would appreciate it. Now to Social Happenings: dear Jerry Banfield released a two-hour-long “how” and “why” to set up a masternode tutorial. And it is performing so well. If you don’t know who Jerry Banfield is, he is this sweet soul who started coming to Dash’s treasury weeks ago, making proposals. The first one got shot all to hell. The second one got kind of shot to hell and Jerry finally made enough tweaks to it so that his third time proposing to the network, it passed. But then we went through with the 12.1 update and all existing proposals got erased, so sweetheart Jerry put in his fourth proposal to make videos for us — for our network — and as of this time it’s passing, and even though he hasn’t been paid yet, Jerry has already started releasing these videos, this masternode tutorial being among them. And it’s doing very well. And I just want to say “thank you” and welcome to Jerry Banfield. Elsewhere, you may have seen that Daniel Diaz was interviewed on The Crypto Show and I have not yet listened to that episode — I look forward to so doing. I wanted to let you know about it, and what’s more, if I may also report this on-the-ground experience: I got to meet both Danny and Chris from The Crypto Show here at Anarchapulco quite recently. And I’ve got to say that they are excellent ambassadors for Dash. I can’t speak a lot about Chris because I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with him, but Danny, I have. And this guy is a great asset for us, I’ve just got to say. Because I wasn’t so sure when I saw The Crypto Show re-proposing for Dash sponsorship month after month. I was one of the people who was like, “I don’t know. I’m not sure how long we need to be sponsoring The Crypto Show.” But now that I have met Danny in person — he is a hustler and he’s a great salesman for Dash. So I just wanted to say that, in case you didn’t know. And finally in Social Happenings, yes, here at this conference again actually, Roger Ver first made his Dash holding public. I think it was the first time he has been public about it. But, he made a presentation where he basically said which coins he’s holding as a hedge against Bitcoin, and Dash was of course among them, so that was neat. And finally, in Current Opportunities, Dash community member and current treasury proposal holder — I’m gonna have to come up with a better term for that — but Roberto Azar is looking for volunteers to join Dash Chat. Now Dash Chat is a treasury proposal that is looking to create a live chat of sorts, to provide support to newcomers to Dash. Now granted, this is not technical support, so you don’t need to be a whiz-bang at Dash technicals — that’s not what the job is about. If I had to guess from the notes that he sent me, the job is more about knowing where to send people to find answers to their questions, in a real live chat sort of way. So if you’re interested in volunteering for Dash Chat — and mind you, this could become a paid position in the future if Dash Chat looks to be profitable enough to the masternodes that they would want to renew their funding of it. If you’re interested in volunteering for the time being, go ahead and fill out this form online. You’ll find the link to this as well as all of today’s shows links in the description below. You should have been a part of the Dash community for at least a few months, you know — obviously, so you know what’s going on and where to direct people. Everyone is encouraged to apply and Roberto says that he will screen applicants for suitability after they have applied. So that is it for DASH: Detailed today. I just can’t tell you how how exciting it is to be here. I’ve spoken to the gamut of people, really. There’s something like seven or eight hundred people at this conference, and they go everywhere from the super crypto-nerd to, you know, your mom and dad from Tennessee who’ve heard of Bitcoin — maybe — and that’s about it. And I’ve got to tell you that these are the people — the people who don’t know much about crypto — who are most open to what it is that I have to say. And that is exactly in line with Dash’s plans right? Which is to reach out to the average person and offer them a truly useful product. So I’ve got to say, I feel very optimistic about people’s willingness to try out money in a different way — particularly the way that we are attempting to build it for them. I hope you’ll subscribe to this channel if you have not yet, but even more so, I hope that you will subscribe to my weekly email. That is where I send you an email every Wednesday with the newest video in it, by sending an email to [email protected] and I’ll just take care of it from there. So I will see you next week at this same time. Thank you for watching. There’s a bug on the camera. It’s on the lens. It’s coming out.

  1. You know I was a monero/ether person. UNTIL I actually did some research on what DASH has to offer. let's just say. only holding dash and fractions of the rest.

  2. 12:20 that's why dash will go so far. If they can be the first to market with the un-nerdy normal population, especially if they can incorporate venmo-like UI. Then, anything under $50/dash is a steal for investors.

  3. Amanda, loved the show this week, the price surge, your choice in background, the previous video of your major presentation I just watched from anarchocrypto (which was epic), and your new dress. You and Pete ROCK. But the bug on the camera ROCKS EVEN MORE!

  4. Mayan or Aztec dress Amanda? It suits you so nicely. Fashionable you are.

    And once again, DASH Detailed is one of the most content-filled show around. Wow! Thanks Pete and Amanda.

  5. Sweet, another reason to bash on Roger Ver…. It's almost hard to imagine the btc jesus even considering give up on btc… then again, he's a free thinking man, and why should he not also be capable of voting with his feet. Congrats Dash folks, you're writing a beautiful story sofar.

  6. Amanda, the first outtake. Pretty cool! Thanks for all the great info. Been sharing these videos with everyone I know!

  7. I am a private investor. NOT a tech (old) guy! Looking for a way to put some cash into this scheme but not sure about how to make a hack proof transaction. Suggest pls?

  8. I think you're there to be recharged with light by the mother ship….next stop Peru….person from the future. :>!

  9. dash is making me crazy it give me chance to start a business after my degree and love to hear ABJ

  10. Hello Amanda, we are starting the channel "Dash in Portuguese", hosted by Marcelo Odir, in an attempt to bring the most important information about Dash to portuguese speaking people. Your videos are our inspiration. Please, if possible, mention our channel, it would help us a lot. Thank you so much!

  11. Amanda, thanks so much for everything you've done to inform others in the cryptosphere about the value proposition behind $Dash. I'm very happy for everyone involved today. With so much good news on the horizon, this may be just the beginning!

    I love love love the Crypto-show! Informative, current, and interesting content delivered in a great format with great skill. The one podcast I don't skip episodes of.

    What percentage of today's price move in $Dash would you attribute to the Tone Vays / Roger Ver debate on the show? I'm thinking 50%

  12. awesome.. I think brave new coin dot com is a much better site on data vs any other site out there for market data .. in-joy your work and love DASH

  13. I cant help to think how i decided to dump everything into Dash when it was at 15$ two days latter KA BOOM loving every Minuit of it !

  14. been following the channel for several months… here in India it's hard to explain crypto currency to anyone… the way you guys are making these geek coins user friendly deserves much appreciation… ultimately that's what will enable mass adoption… Good luck to you guys… congratulations on the big day

  15. Hey – glad you beat that weird corporate thing called Ripple!
    I still don't have any DASH, but never mind that – stay ahead of Ripple! 🙂

  16. Please pretty please try a way to get on the Joe Rogan Podcast. Andres was on the podcast and that's how I found out about BitCoin. Dash would spread like wildfire if you get on the Joe Rogan podcast. Thank you if read my comment.

  17. I have been quietly watching this DASH to elevated levels for weeks. Sincerely — Regular Guy Barry. Target Market. I have kept up the regular SM media mentions of it also. Interesting, 2017 is the year Crypto really makes mass gains, clearly.

  18. Fantastic! Ignore the haters, sitting on the sidelines while dash holders enjoy success is tough for those haters. You know, lending dash on poloniex for 730% p/a is no to shabby either! (even if it is likely to be only short term).

  19. Dash is now $62.61 in Canada. I got in at $42.00. I was going to buy in at $28.00 but I was too slow. I'm still very happy. I'm looking at it as if I was buying Bitcoin in 2012 :). In 5 years it could out-perform Bitcoin. 🙂

  20. Amanda, Congrats on your show. It's very informative. Your enthusiasm and well explained uses for Dash is what has drawn me to it. Dash seems to be going places very Fast. Since you posted this video, Dash has surged even higher. WOW !!!!

  21. well its the 2nd March over here in Scotland…..and Dash has leapt tall buildings in a single leap to…$50…!! I don't think it will sustain the charge but it's a lovely sight….!! My wallet has more than doubled..!! Keep on rockin Amanda..!!

  22. Hi, I'm new at dash
    I still wonder how to make fast Dash transactions? I've tested some times and the averege was 5 – 10 minutes to complet.

  23. We just posted a video about the reason why DASH can easily exceed the price of Bitcoin. DASH at $5000 is achievable.

  24. how can i buy Dash from Australia without surrendering my ID to these anonymous websites that don't have proven track records or global reputations? And why do these people need other people's ID to sell them something anyway? They should be verifying and proving their identity to us users before trying to sell us anything. It's all very suspicious.

  25. Why do new users to coin trading site have to provide their government ID to buy
    coins from the site? Shouldn't it be the site that has to verify its
    legitimacy before taking other people's identity and money to make sure
    everybody knows they wont have the identity sold or money stolen by
    whoever is running the site?

    What security issues could users possibly pose to anybody for simply buying coins?


  27. Is Dash inflated? Maybe…..just be careful because markets have a way of correcting. But this looks like a very promising project.

  28. I downloaded the official Dash wallet app on my phone. I tried to see if I could recover it with no money on the account before deciding to buy. The "back-up" I sent to my email was corrupted. I don't think I'll be buying dash. Thoughts?

  29. dash hires a hot cheerleader and the world goes crazy
    all the nerds start investing in it
    and now dash is worth heaps
    good play dash

  30. Is there a Dash Icon that I can download to display in my store to show clients that I accept Dash as a method of payment ?

  31. BlockPay "S" came out late last year, but we wanted to wait until it is fine tuned before really pushing it forward.

    DASH us able to be accepted at any POS BlockPay register. Takes seconds and there is no merchant fees.

    I'm one of the US Ambassadors and happy to get you set up.

  32. Is there a name for the "satoshi" version of Dash.. I ask because I find that people who know nothing about cryptocurrency aren't too impressed by getting .0001 or even .0000001 of something.. I always said the "Satoshi Wallet" would take Bitcoin to the next level, because it sounds better to say 10,000 Satoshi vs .0001 of a Bitcoin (Same for Dash) What do you think?

  33. I cant find how I can buy DASH in New York State, USA 🙁  Can someone give me some direction? I have coinbase but can only buy Bitcoin in NY. Thanks!

  34. Amanda- great video- and what a great job by all the members of the Dash team. I was thinking of setting up mulitple masternodes- do I need to have multiple VPSes to do that? I was thinking of Vultr as you recommend on your site as my server…what monthly price option do i need to choose to say host 5 masternodes?

  35. Can anyone start me up with some Dash please?


    Anything helps, thanks!

  36. Does anybody know if there is an exchange that can link a bank account – like coinbase offers – but to buy Dash? Thnx!

  37. heyy blockpay is awesome, I noticed they accept Dash, I mean why wouldn't they right lol?? People can learn more on their YouTube channel, they have great videos that explain how it all works. 🙂

  38. Jerry's videos are great too! I learned a lot so far, and was able to share with friends who are now interested in joining the Dash community…

  39. She reminds me of the lady in Bioshock Infinite…and she also says the words "Would you kindly…" right after timeframe 6:33 in this video. "Would you kindly" was also used in Bioshock 1 various times throughout the game.
