What do you think of when you hear "DMV"?

If you are like most people, the idea that the California DMV was open and actually acted on testing a car title system on a blockchain, it would seem a huge surprise.

The signal we have long paid the most attention to is Adoption.

Not just money, but a lot of time has been spent. This is not an accident and indicates a long future for the tech, in our opinion.

Why do you need to wait for a bank to open on the weekends to do business? Close a deal?

Why wait after 6pm to get your banking done?

Why can you not settle transactions faster. Avoid chargebacks, and stop paying fee's for simply using money?
