Always practicing my elevator speech. Did this one for a Russian conference taking place tonight.
This little video was particularly interesting because of the short fuse in making it - I discovered the request in my inbox just 17 hours before it was due to be presented in Moscow. Here's the request which I won't soon forget:
We have some urgent news. This Saturday we are hosting the most significant event in Russian cryptocommunity, which has already become an attention epicenter.
We understand the difference between your project and other ones: Ethereum, Waves etc. We recognize that it is extending the frontiers of technology and changing the world. That is why it is staggering for us how underestimated it is in Russia and CIS. As we are developing our own project using your state-of-art blockchain inventions, we want to provide you an opportunity to tell about the Bitshares ecosystem to the leading members of Russian cryptocommunity.
Among our guests will be:
IT-counselor to the President of Russian Federation, Mr.German Klimenko
Representatives of Russia’s largest banks administration: Sberbank, Vnesheconombank etc.
Representatives of Far East Development Fund (well known for its operations with derivatives)
All of them, as well as many other businesspersons, politicians, and blockchain developers, will be there with an aim to get in touch with latest financial technologies.
The event will start at 12 AM at Moscow's time (UTC+3) so we still have 17 hours to make your participation possible. Can you please record a video message and send it to us: we will show it during the main session to all our guests and we will report you on how it was, including the video with the reaction of the government members. In your video message can you please tell us your opinion about such topics as:
Bitshares as a revolutionary system
3-5 minutes long will be enough, because we appreciate your precious time
Thank you very much!
UPDATE: Here's the highlight reel - I appear at 0:30 seconds for a brief flash.
