Do you ever to conference talks or similar here in SA? :D I see some talks about BTC and ETH but never XMR.
I spoke at the Joburg Bitcoin Meetup in June (http://www.meetup.com/The-Johannesburg-Bitcoin-Company/), that was fun. I refuse to speak at the "Blockchain Africa Conference" since they're borderline scammers, their conference is basically just a bunch of startups that paid to be there speaking about their startup, and they also claim to have "banned" me since I called out nearly every speaker when I attended the first one in 2015:-P

Hi fluffypony,

Thanks for taking part in the AMA and for dropping back in from time to time.

How do you feel about a couple of the darknet markets announcing that they will soon be allowing their members to carry out transactions using Monero?
Do you see this as a positive step forward for Monero or do you think it may bring with it some undesired attention and bad press?

There is no shortage of bad actors ;)

On the other hand, congrats on Monero!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to see a good campaign for adoption from both people and businesses. This would really help Monero!

This is not really a question, but I would like to share my opinion about XMR.
Monero is an amazing project, you did a great job but the crypto-community need proofs that XMR is strong (as strong as BTC) and because of rumors on twitter / bitcointalk about security issues and 0days, lots of people hesitate.

What can you tell me about this ?

Will CryptoNight always be for the casual user, or do you support the development of ASIC's too?
Kind regards,
Jake
