I've started a thread on the Bitcoin.com forum to announce the launch of the new DNotes website.

https://forum.bitcoin.com/alternative-cryptocurrencies-altcoins/dnotes-t25536.html

...and one at Cryptocointalk:

https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/54432-dnotes/#entry239567

Excellent! Thank you Chase! Anywhere you can think to place it would help.

If you have not done so, be sure to visit our new DNotes Forum. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1924858

A new press release has just been circulated. We are expecting that will be well received and published in many online and print publications worldwide.

Some thoughts on DNotes strategic move to C#

Moving to C# was a great strategic move that should allow for better corporate world participation for distributed ledgers. Most languages allow for the implementation of anything - though C# has many advantages over other languages for development.

Since the DNotes platform is to work primarily to engage the corporate community, it is best to look at what companies look for when deciding on a language to employ:


Common use

Corporate entities put a large emphasis on reducing risk. Using the most commonly used coding languages that are proven and strongly supported, which makes finding capable programmers easy.

C# is widely supported, with it being easy to find programmers worldwide. By comparison, C++ (the code used for Bitcoin core and most blockchains) is very difficult to find highly capable programmers for - which makes developing and finding coders for C++ very expensive and time consuming.

Programming speed and cost

Companies both large and small are hyper-aware of the cost to creating applications, for which C# is a much better alternative than C/C++. Programmers in C# are much more productive in this regard due to C#'s forgiving nature in debugging. C#'s integration with the .NET framework and standard libraries (pre-programmed code) makes finding solutions much faster than C++ where much time can be spend writing code that should have already been written. Businesses need their enterprise applications to be written, tested and integrated quickly and will always prefer to use language which get them the best ROI in the fastest time.

Ease of hiring programmers

Microsoft and Oracle certify developers. Corporations hiring a lot of people find it much easier to confirm that the people they are considering hiring know they have the required base level of coding ability. By contrast, most top coders in C++ are very difficult to employ as they are rarer in number due to C++'s steeper learning curve.

When rapid and agile business application development is the primary goal, C# must be considered as one of the, if not the best programming language to opt for.

Thanks, TeeGee. Well explained without getting too technical. From a long-term strategic prospective, this will place DNotes in solid technology leadership to be a formidable player in the corporate space which has been seeing increasing demand to deploy projects involving smart contracts and the blockchain technologies. The only other coin that we know of at this time, coding in C#, is Startis. We certain appreciate their leadership and contributions to our industry.

Investing in Bitcoin and other digital currencies is certainly not for the faint of heart and no one will deny that it is speculative. Speculators will practically pay any price if they believe that they can turn around and sell them at higher prices. “ … a Speculative Asset with “No Intrinsic Value” may sound debatable but tough to defend.

Some may be creating more fundamental value than others but most may not bother. Over the longer-term it pays to be able to differentiate. At DNotes we have been devoting a lot of resources to ensure that DNotes will have significant “Intrinsic Value” one day.
 
Bitcoin a Speculative Asset with “No Intrinsic Value”, Says Business Insider Founder
Samburaj Das on 30/05/2017

As bitcoin captures the world’s attention while soaring to unprecedented heights, the cryptocurrency has been labelled as an asset primed for a bubble, with no intrinsic value.

Henry Blodget is the founder, CEO and editor of prominent financial news publication Business Insider stated:

Look, this is a perfect asset for a speculative bubble…There is a finite supply. There is no intrinsic value. If anybody is persuading you that it should somehow be related to some GDP or gold…put down the Kool-Aid and back away.”

Source: https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/bitcoin-speculative-asset-no-intrinsic-value-says-business-insider-founder/


He's right about bitcoin's intrinsic value, of course - though he could substitute virtually any means of exchange or asset in place of "bitcoin" and be equally correct. Fortunately, Dnotes' unique value proposition isn't based on speculation from a trading standpoint or on some noble hope that the marketplace will figure out how to use it to make a worthwhile contribution to mankind's progress. After all, hope is not a strategy. DNotes is unique in that the team that's brought it to life remains committed to building a dynamic ecosystem capable of bridging the gap between cutting-edge decentralized digital technology and the clunkier centralized financial systems that continue to leave billions of the world's citizens underserved or altogether ignored.

I continue to believe that this digital currency is one that can help to transform the world and create solutions that help to empower ordinary citizens in almost every nation on the planet. It's that important, and the video series will hopefully help to flesh that out in a way that makes sense to not only crypto-enthusiasts but crypto-neophytes who may be trying to understand why any of this matters.

With that said, I'd offer my own humble opinion about some content that I'd like to see explored in greater depth in a future video: paint a picture of what the world could look like for average consumers, businesses, and those who are underserved by the banking world once the DNotes strategy is implemented on a broader scale. Technical analysis and feature explanations are important for early and future stakeholders, but less crypto-savvy individuals will need the dots connected for them before they understand how it can eventually benefit them in their everyday lives.*

Hope might not be a strategy, but the DNotes strategic vision is one that can inspire hope.

*I apologize in advance if that sort of video was already produced and I somehow missed the link. Been suffering from a touch of bronchitis, so it's entirely possible that it escaped my notice.



Absolutely, a glimpse into the future of DNotes is an excellent idea! Agree, we will have to make it understandable for everyone who may be interested. As Tim mentioned, it will be great if we can incorporate both elements for the crypto savvy as well as breaking it down. It does pose a bit of a challenge to make it and engage everyone.

Hello all! Apologies for the forum absence. Alan (DYNA), Joe (DNotes) and myself met up with MiningHabit for some food and a drink. Then we met another supporter, Sam who works for a fund in downtown Chicago at the Illinois Blockchain Center conference, as well as many other power players in the industry.


Joe, Tim, MiningHabit, and Alan.


Myself (left) with Alan (right) and Sam (next to him) and a couple great students we respectfully won't name without permission.
