With questions such as "Why do you believe Thailand is a good market for Dash adoption?", "Do you believe an embassy structure is the best and most cost-effective way to deliver Dash adoption successfully?" and "How many of the Dash transactions seen through the AnyPay POS in Thailand are organic customer payments?" This 1-hour interview also covers topics such as the partnerships with Winstantpay and Coinmarketcap, advice for other teams looking to develop Dash ecosystems, exchange integrations, expanding focus across Asia and why they are moving away from single merchant adoption to leveraged partnerships
