  1. Excellent series! Very, very entertaining and informative. If I had a teacher like you in school, Amanda, I would have actually paid attention and had fun at the same time. Thanks for these!

  2. This was a good series., looks like a good introduction in 'layman terms'. I couldn't spot any technical mistakes, at first glance all the links worked. I guess I could only find one 'mistake'. The videos didn't end up in the right order on the channel. So great job guys !

  3. great series.
    one correction, bitshares was the first to implement usernames in place of alphanumeric addresses. the problem with bts is that it's not very user friendly and trying to keep up with their ever changing development is a nightmare. they have lots of cool projects but they are all over the place.

  4. Ha! I loved that ending Amanda, but the whole series too, well done! How you summarized four ways to obtain Dash (with convenient links to detail!), none of which mentioned any sort of exchange which, I think, actually bodes nicely for Dash at this time. Whether a kiss or digital-cash experience, people remember their first ones, so may as well just wait until Evolution, when it will be the friendliest and best received.

    I believe this vision you've laid out so clearly is why Dash is able to attract the kind of quality grass-roots developers, marketers, workers, investors, etc. — not people looking for a trade but for engaging in the big picture of a world with decentralized currency. Dash appears to be the one solving the right use-cases toward that vision, with an organizational mechanism that puts the likelihood of success somewhere in the realm between possible and inevitable..

  5. Refreshingly informative, scientific and female…. From one crypto geek to another… Thank you and keep up the good work! 🙂

  6. Great series, thanks for your time and effort.

    I think about this Evolution thing and I wonder what if I would like to send any Dash anonymously using this system. If the addresses are connected to the username how we would be able to do this. Is it going to be a kind of a private mode there?

  7. Amanda, as ever you explain Dash really well.
    However you did not cover how payment might be made in a retail environment.
    Will Dash piggyback on the latest contact less technology or perhaps something else. The key will be to NOT require the retailer to buy/lease a Dash specific box to enable collection of the transaction. The easier it is for the retailer to accept Dash the quicker the use of Dash will spread.
    I'm sure this has been thought about, but it would be interesting to know what is being proposed.

  8. Thanks Amanda – you filled in many of the gaps in my knowledge about crypto currencies in general and DASH specifically. I mine Ethereum but now I'm thinking I should be mining DASH! If only those X11 ASICs weren't so expensive!

  9. Excellent job Amanda and kudos to the DASH team. Question, is there a way to purchase DASH with a VISA or MASTERCARD gift card in US currency? If not, when will you implement this?

  10. Having watched all this I have a question or two if anyone can answer…

    What's to stop an adversary buying lots of dash and setting up multiple masternodes then instant sending bad transactions if they cannot be reversed.

    There was also the mention of not needing people with fat wallets etc to fund dash.

    Again, wouldn't someone who invested lots and lots and ran many masternodes eventually be able to effectively own the network by using their voting power to control it? I'm thinking more here of state actors who could invest billions and then effectively have their own, ready made digital bank.

  11. Thank you Amanda. I just installed Electrum Dash and installed my first wallet. I even used shapeshift for the first time to convert some of my BTCs to my DASH wallet 🙂

    My one question is whether DASH is running well because of its strong sane leadership and not just because of its features? What if Evan went away as the lead developer, could it end up closed-off like we see with the bitcoin core developers? Or end up in disarray and divided?

  12. I really like Dash's desire to make digital currency easy. All three of the Evolution additions you mentioned sound great! However, could the process of buying Dash be simplified? It's a hassle for new users to try and find a trustworthy exchange. Recommendations change so often for exchanges. Do you think Dash will ever add a "Buy Dash" button in the Dash wallet?

  13. Thanks a lot for the whole series. I ended up with only one doubt: In case someone hacked and robbed an amount of Dash, it would be a good idea to just deny receiving money from the robber. Is there ways to prevent this money to be laundred?

  14. Great stuff and by far much more advanced than any other crypto than I am aware of. What about chargebacks? Right now if I buy something with Visa and it never arrives, I can get my money back.

  15. What will happened if after sometime all the supply of Dash for instance, was mined already and no new Dash coin is being created? What will be the reward of miners or masternodes will be? Are they still keep service of updating ledgers (blockchain) even if there are no new coins created? (These question may apply to all crypto-currencies). Thanks.

  16. Not sure how good Dash would turn out to be..but certainly the teacher has wonderfully presented the concept in the entire series….and of course she's beautiful too !

  17. Very informative and entertaining, thank you! Dash is extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful ambassador. Great work!

  18. All great, but the one thing I don't like is the usernames. What if the IRS puts out a reward for logs in which people sent Dash to me so they can prove that I have received Dash?

  19. Crypto money is not yet a threat to our current fiat money systems, but who thinks the international bankers will just quit if this grows enough to become a threat?

  20. You can send mobile recharge all over the word with cryptocurrencies throught www.ponturecarga.com

  21. IHi thank you for all the information I will like to find out where to order the miner maquine. And how much is worth. I want to learn how to used these product.Thank you.

  22. Amanda. Might you be able to do one comparing how the conventional banks work by comparison. After all, banks have ledgers too and if a transfer is made from one to the other it can be traced and shows as a negative with the payer, and a positive with the receiver. The method of course will be different. A direct comparison would be good in the same lucid way. Many thanks.

  23. just thought… there will be more than one Amanda B Johnson in the world. Do the others then need to call themselves Amanda b johnson100 etc?

    Also, after watching these and a few other videos my conclusion is that security is certainly one of the main aspects, but ease of use? I now have a few wallet numbers, no idea why.
    With banking (here in Europe) I simply enter a name and an IBAN number and it's off. In the UK bank transfers are *instant*, milliseconds instant. In Europe… takes one day (still… sadly).
    Europe doesn't take days as in the USA nor are cheques used… as in the USA. (just fyi… No one has used cheques in Europe for 30 years now).
    However given the 1000s of bizarre trading "products" and tools and value perceptions of fiat currencies, the fact that regular banks can create money out of thin air when e.g. setting up a loan to buy a house etc. for someone etc. are still things that remain unclear, and worry me. Will cryptocurrency solve all this at some point?

    Also, is dash compatible with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Stellar Lumens, Litecoin, Cardano etc. etc. etc. …???

  24. Amanda…or is it Alice? Look, let's just forget about dinner and "lettuce" contribute to global warming by making lots of children…watta ya say gorgeous? Doll face, watta ya say huh?
    Yourgoodfriend.

  25. Amanda…the "EVOLUTION" software is actually a "misnomer," because they've realized our DNA is digital. So, if our DNA is digital…it means that it is "Iinformation," and being so it can never evolve. So, now those that don't believe in God…as the "Creator." are now promoting that we live in a "SUBSTRATE," and have now shifted to "DEVOLUTION." Given the rate of technology advancement doubling every 6 months or so…we will soon reach that point where we will turn again "BACK TO PAPER MONEY." Sorry. Looking at things from a "financial perspective," I really hope that the Evolution would work.
    You are a very sexually exciting teacher…nice job! GREAT JOB! I'll stop. ok. thanks.
