Everyone can understand, use, and be empowered by Pi. Bitcoin applies the same objectivity and openness to financial transactions,” says Miller, referring to the underlying mathematical principles of bitcoin that he believes allows the currency to provide security and transparency. “Also, Pi Day is conveniently right after Carnival, one of the most glorious of all imperfect, human creations,” he added. The day of the “Bit Drop,” organizers will celebrate the currency launch with a nationwide party with various musicians and celebrities in attendance. They plan to hold raffles and host informational booths with introductory and educational material related to the cryptocurrency. Another project partner, the Cryptocurrency College Network (CCN) of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), will be in charge of distributing educational material throughout the island and explaining bitcoin’s various uses and advantages. They will also work to educate local Dominican retailers on the benefits of accepting bitcoin as payment." Great Job Dominica! The reason I am so excited and why I'm posting this is because my father is from this country, and now i feel like we should definitely try and introduce my family members to look into Quark as well! If they are accepting of bitcoin and they like Quark, maybe we can convince the whole island to adopt Quark? it is a long shot for sure, but who knows right?
