Dash advocate Amanda B. Johnson is known as the world’s first freelancer to be paid by blockchain. Prior to making YouTube videos funded by Dash’s decentralized treasury, she wrote at Bitcoin Magazine, CoinTelegraph, Bitcoin.com, and The Daily Decrypt.
Yesterday she talked with Finance Magnates about the cryptocurrency, among the top ten most valuable blockchain tokens with a market cap of over $1.3 billion. The interview was broadcast live and a video recording is available here:
Among the topics we discussed are how she sees the future role of Dash in the real world, how to enable micro-payments on a blockchain, how to get normal people to open a crypto wallet, the effects of speculators, avoiding Bitcoin’s block-size problems and much more.
Last week it was reported that gift card platform BitCart has decided to disable Bitcoin from its platform and accept Dash orders only. This came in the wake of extremely slow bitcoin transaction confirmations and settlement speeds, which were “crippling the company’s ability to provide a 24 hour turnaround to its customers.”
In September of last year Amanda B. Johnson created her Dash School, an educational video series – offering novices explanations on cryptocurrencies, blockchain and many other subjects related to the field.
And in November last year we asked her to explain all the hype surrounding the then newly released privacy-focused cryptocurrency Zcash. She explained that the buzz is likely due to the type of people who were actively promoting or just willing to purchase it.
