Unfortunately, our camera ran out of power about half way through so it end abruptly.
However, we got 12 people who were engaged and interested in DASH, and we setup 7 new DASH wallets and gave away .77 DASH (.11 to each person or about $20 per person)

Everyday Crypto #023 – State of the Art Passwords
For a high security password, which is needed for your e-mail, your password manager, and your cryptocurrency and more, this method is the absolute best while being the easiest to remember, transcribe, and communicate to others.
Side note, also please use 2-factor authentication for all of these as well 🙂
In this video I do a test using Mechanical Turk to transcribe 360 Passwords using random characters, BIP-39, and Diceware. I calculate which method gives the best entropy per second.
I also run a (non scientific) single memory test for each method.
