I will be in Africa soon. My Bitcoin speaking event is not until November 22-25. More on that soon. Link below. Looks like the Ethereum fork was success... so far. Coinmarketcap is not always right.

I've heard a lot about the TSA. UK isn't so bad but give it time haha good video. look forward to the Africa videos. oh yeah I'm going to the bkockchain event in London on the 6th. I let you know how it all goes :)
So the Ethereum hard fork didn't split the chain this time, thus there is no cheap baby born eth, and there will be not in the next fork as well, as I understood. ETC fork might split the chain -- what you think?
Adam, you don't need to clean cut for those guys, just be yourself as you are always be, little hairy chin and cheeks don't hurt anyone. Have a safe and enjoyable trip and we look forward for your next wonderful and informative videos!
I have had some bad luck with those guys and their Canadian friends. I don't like delays (I have been sent to the back room) so I take no chances and I try to look decent. Who knows what will happen with Ethereum or ETC. a chain could suddenly continue. Crazier things have happened. We won't know the true answer until the last of the planned forks are complete and some time has passed. Some sort of troll group could do it for the heck of it! Thanks for the nice wishes on my trip.
Looks like the increase in bitcoin plus the Ether fork are sucking the valuations out of the other coins. I have a long term Dash holding of about 4k and I'm down about 600 dollars. I suspect after the fork we'll see it reverse. I suspect a lot of people want to hold ether before it forks so they can also be holding the ethereum classic 2 that will probably be mined after the fork. Bitcoin's value is now back over 80% of the entire crypto currency network valuation. Glad I have the vast majority of my crypto holdings in bitcoin.
I'm impressed with the funding method Dash uses for improving their infrastructure. Supposedly their R&D funding rivals bitcoin even though bitcoin is billions of dollars higher in market cap.
Have a great time in Africa. You might be able to pickup some Zimbabwe dollars cheap and sell them on Open Bazaar for a nice profit when you get home.
*>Of course you do what you feel the best for you and your situation. If you are satisfied with Dash, then go for it but personally I am not buying even 1 Dash*
Then may the best coin, best development method, and best community, win.
The issue of dash is not the development, it is ok for people who do not care the privacy that much but want to have semi-private transactions. What I am seeing the problem with dash is that it is a premined coin and thus a scam coin. And I think I am not the only one. I am not sure if you are aware but the marketcap of Monero has been higher than the market cap of Dash for some time (even it held above during the correction from ATH). Bitcoin is growing very slowly, it shows signs that the growth of btc is stagnating. I am not saying it will not go to 1000 usd but that is "only" 80 % growth while Monero going to 100 usd is 15000% growth rate. 100 usd/xmr is a bullish statement but it is moderate in case of Monero (IMO). Of course you do what you feel the best for you and your situation. If you are satisfied with Dash, then go for it but personally I am not buying even 1 Dash. :)
*>I do not recommend to hold more Moneros than you have bitcoins because the ultimate goal of the Monero project is to reach minimum 1:1 ratio with bitcoin*
It's the goal of all alt coins to reach the same marketcap as bitcoin. I don't see how how their goal is going to translate into reality though. Even Dash with the constant flow of funds for development will have a hard time reaching 1 to 1 with bitcoin. The network effect of bitcoin is just too great. Bitcoin recently went back above 80% of crypto currency marketcap. If I see it drop to 70% I might consider changing my strategy.
Well time will tell if Dash is able to replace Monero. In case it will not it is higly recommended to hold some Moneros "just in case". I do not recommend to hold more Moneros than you have bitcoins because the ultimate goal of the Monero project is to reach minimum 1:1 ratio with bitcoin. Therefore, if you have 100 btc, it is recommended to hold 100 XMR. Currently the price is low and it is a good buying opportunity in Monero. Sure there might be further drop but I think the bottom was already at 0.0089 btc this time. Next I am expecting some stable trading range for a while and then the traditional spring rally during Q1/2017. :-)
*>Monero is funded in very much the same manner as bitcoin*
That wealth effect once existed in bitcoin as well but eventually it ran out. You can't count on the generosity of the community to fund a coins development. If they were smart they would divert a percentage of their block reward to development as Dash does. Then Dash wouldn't have a change to keep up. As it is, this funding method will make Dash hard to beat.
Owned buildings at another site may be used as alternate workspace if a building cannot be occupied. This depends upon the location of the building and whether the building would be affected by the same hazard that prevented use of the primary building. The alternate facility may be a viable business recovery strategy if the building can be configured with the required equipment or existing equipment can be configured to need business requirements.
Systems and Equipment.
Evaluate these systems to determine whether they meet the needs of the program. Identify and plan to overcome emergency communication system limitations such as weak radio or cellular service or areas where a warning system cannot be heard. Upgrading this critically important system may be required. Verify that these systems are in reliable working condition.
If fuel, battery backup power or batteries are required, make sure the system can run for the required time and chargers are available. Document how to operate these systems and mark the locations of controls. Make sure the information is available during an emergency. Many of these systems also require periodic inspection, testing and maintenance in accordance with national codes and standards. Train staff so a knowledgeable person is able to operate systems and equipment.
Materials and Supplies.
Be sure to compile a list of available resources using the Emergency Response Resource Requirements and Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheets as a guide.
Preparing for an emergency, responding to an emergency, executing business recovery strategies and other activities require resources that come from outside the business. If there were a fire in the building, you would call the fire department. Contractors and vendors may be needed to prepare a facility for a forecast storm or to help repair and restore a building, systems or equipment following an incident.
The following external resources should be identified within plan documents. Include contact information to reach them during an emergency and any additional instructions within the preparedness plan.
Public Emergency Services.
Contractors and Vendors.
