A lot of recent digital currency discussion has centered around Venezuela. The potential to demonstrate the use case of cryptocurrencies is high there, due to its political and economic climate. The people there are eager and willing to try new things.
The benefits of a digital currency economy are hard for them to ignore: Refuge from a tanking fiat currency, no restrictions on where or when or how they can spend their hard-earned money, and a sense of community in using a money made by the people for the people.
Dash simply works as a payment system, simple and elegant
Dash Venezuela, starting with a year-long series of conferences and expanding from there, has done a wonderful job getting the word out in their country about Dash. Eugenia Alcala, the founder of Dash Venezuela, has started a movement there which continues to grow rapidly.
Venezuelans have the choice of many digital currencies to adopt when trying to store their value and transact. Dash in particular appeals to them because it has unique aspects that make it suitable in a retail commercial setting. It has instantly confirming transactions with the innovation InstantSend, which guarantees a merchant will receive the payment instantly. Not having to wait for 6 blockchain confirmations before you are sure the money is yours is something merchants are very happy about.
Dash also works flawlessly, silky smooth due to its large complement of incentivized full-nodes to broadcast transactions seamlessly and in a timely manner. It’s also pretty easy to use in its current form, but will be made even more so in future iterations of Dash.
Proof is in the pudding
M. Isabel B. Rodriguez has a passion for Dash, and this comes through in her series of videos that demonstrate its power and ease of use. Her easy-going demeanor embodies the Dash Nation attitude, friendly and positive. You can read posts like this, you can argue for days on Twitter and Reddit, but sometimes seeing is believing.
Please enjoy this series of short videos demonstrating Dash’s ease of use in multiple locations in Venezuela. Isabel sure has a great time spending Dash! When our infrastructure becomes more widespread globally, you will too.
We look forward to more videos from Isabel and from people from all over Dash Nation paying with Dash. Thanks, Isabel!
