General Usability | How Dash Fixed It

CRYPTOCURRENCY IS SLOWLY BUT SURELY COMING TO REPLACE OLDER FORMS OF CURRENCY AND THE LIVES OF A SMALL BUT GROWING NUMBER OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD. THE ABILITY TO EXPERIENCE ITS FULL BENEFITS HOWEVER IS LIMITED BY TECHNICAL ABILITY AND SHALL WE SAY A TOLERANCE FOR A HIDEOUS USER EXPERIENCE. THIS IS REMINISCENT OF THE WORLD WIDE WEB WHICH IN ITS EARLIEST DAYS LOOKED SOMETHING LIKE THIS. AS COMPARED TO TODAY WHERE AS YOU KNOW, IT LOOKS MORE LIKE THIS. AT DASH WE BELIEVE THAT CRYPTOCURRENCIES PATH FORWARD WILL SOMEWHAT FOLLOW THAT OF THE WEB THAT IS TO SAY THERE WILL BE NO MASS ADOPTION FROM YOUR GRANDMOTHER, YOUR NEIGHBOR YOUR COUSIN, YOUR WIFE, THE CASHIER AT YOUR FAVORITE CONVENIENCE STORE UNTIL WE CAN OFFER THESE PEOPLE AN EXPERIENCE THAT'S FAMILIAR AND EVEN PLEASURABLE.

BUT HOW CAN WE TRANSFORM THE CRYPTOCURRENCY USER EXPERIENCE WITHOUT RELYING ON THIRD PARTIES TO OFFER UP PRETTY SERVICES TO US? IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO IT ON THE PEER-TO-PEER PROTOCOL LEVEL? IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DASH THE ANSWER IS YES. CURRENTLY ON DASH TESTNET OR ON MAINNET DEPENDING ON WHEN YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO. IS THE RESULT OF OVER FIVE YEARS OF WORK OF TRANSFORMING THE CRYPTOCURRENCY EXPERIENCE FROM THIS, TO THIS. THIS TRANSFORMATION IS ONLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE PAID SERVICE COMPUTERS AKA MASTERNODES THAT JOINED FORCES WITH DASH'S MINERS IN 2014. SEE MASTERNODES ARE CAPABLE OF PERFORMING SEVERAL OF THE SAME FUNCTIONS AS TRADITIONAL WEB SERVERS. THIS INCLUDES OFFERING UP A DECENTRALIZED API THAT FEEDS CHAIN DATA DIRECTLY TO MOBILE AND WEB CLIENTS. IT INCLUDES OFFERING A DNS TYPE SERVICE THAT ALLOWS USERS TO FIND, ADD AND PAY ONE ANOTHER BY USERNAME INSTEAD OF CRYPTOGRAPHIC ADDRESSES AND IT INCLUDES A STORAGE MECHANISM SO THAT DECENTRALIZED APPLICATIONS CAN SAVE USER DATA INCLUDING THINGS LIKE SETTINGS, PREFERENCES, EVEN PROFILE PICTURES TO BE UPDATED ACROSS THE WHOLE NETWORK IN REAL TIME.

IN SHORT WE BELIEVE THAT PROVIDING A GREAT USER EXPERIENCE IS THE FINAL STEP REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE MASS ADOPTION. DASH IS READY TO GO MAINSTREAM BY MAKING BLOCKCHAIN PAYMENTS EASY, FAMILIAR AND PLEASANT. WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF SOCIAL PAYMENTS. SO WHEN IT COMES TO USABILITY NOW YOU KNOW HOW DASH FIXED IT OR IS FIXING IT DEPENDING ON WHEN YOU'RE WATCHING THIS VIDEO.
