This exclusive interview with Evan Duffield, creator of the anonymous cryptocurrency Dash, was recorded in Amsterdam for Bitcoin Wednesday on 14 October, 2015.
Excerpts from this interview were screened in their world premiere in the cinema of the Melkweg concert hall during The 2nd Annual Bitcoin Film Festival. Some impressions of the film festival are now online.
Evan and a few key members of the Dash team, Daniel Diaz, Robert Wiecko and Balázs Király gave presentations in Amsterdam during Bitcoin Wednesday on 7 October 2015. It was the first time that their geographically distributed team came together to talk to the public at one event, and it gave the world a first, in-depth glimpse behind the scenes at the world’s most successful anonymous cryptocurrency.
That one look wasn’t enough, and we had a rare opportunity to sit with Evan a week later at a small hotel near the Rokin in Amsterdam to capture this candid dialogue about his early experiences launching Dash. It gives a slightly more personal view into Evan’s personal motivations, some of the early challenges and controversies he faced, and some of his plans for the Dash in the future.
