Venezuelan Isabel B. Rodriguez demonstrates the power of Dash

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.

Mid-size chains are now starting to accept Dash, as seen by Church’s Chicken Venezuela’s nod to Dash.

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.

Striking while the iron is hot!

Members of the Dash community who were around at the beginning know this feeling. Even ones who joined Dash Nation later may have felt it. A large part of the cryptosphere has never evaluated Dash with a fair lens, due to mistakes made at the launch.

These mistakes led to increased trolling from rival currencies who made the assumption that these mistakes were intentional. Rumours that Dash was a scam were prevalent, but no proof of this was ever submitted. The people responsible would simply follow the adage “Repeat it long enough and it will become true”.

66,000 Kriptomobile Dash-preloaded phones were sold in Latin America.

All of this early-life adversity only served to make Dash stronger. There was never anything wrong with the technology, customer service or work ethos, just a persistent bias from those who believed the parroted narrative of the detractors.

All through this time, Dash Nation persevered. We posted links to our successes in the cryptocurrency subReddit only to get met with downvotes and scam comments. We tweeted about integrations and adoption only to get ridiculed about the assumed intentions of Dash’s founder.

Fast-forward to today. As someone who has spent considerable time in the trenches trying to build the community, I have begun to notice a thawing out of this resistance to Dash’s successes.

I believe a big reason for this was the popping of the crypto bubble. People are no longer making money from pure speculation, and the focus is more on usage and adoption. This is right up Dash’s alley, as we have literally been working on this since the beginning!

Rodrigo Digital explains Dash’s successes in encouraging adoption.

Dash’s social media contacts (Dash Nation’s #social-media-squad, and Dash Talk’s #swarm, among others) regularly post newsworthy items in their circles. Recently, where there used to be downvotes there are upvotes, where their used to be snide comments there are now compliments. It’s very refreshing to see, and a vindication of our hard work.

People who work with Dash Nation more often than not come away impressed by the experience.

We are coming into a new period of added respect for our project, Dash Nation. The dichotomy of how we are treated in the cryptosphere versus how we and the project actually are is slowly fading.

It’s taken a long time to get to this point, but we must remember it didn’t come by accident. The whole community came together to make this happen. Developers coded a smooth and robust network, business developers worked hard to add integrations in this environment of extreme bias, and rabid community members did their best to get the constant good news out there.

Does that mean it’s going to be easy from now on? Absolutely not, and if it was it simply wouldn’t be Dash. This false narrative we deal with every day is still prevalent. There are indications, however, that times may be changing, and we must not rest now. Now is the time to be bold. To have the swagger we deserve. 

Now is the time to strike while the iron is hot!
