Twitter — Matt Spoke request a friendly bet with Jimmy Song on the success of AIONs dApps #ThedAppBet:

Jimmy Song (송재준) — @jimmysong:So @ethereumJoseph says he thinks ETH is going to disrupt the Facebooks of the world. FB has 2 Billion daily active users (DAUs). Surely, if he actually believes what he says, he should be willing to bet that there will be 5 dapps on ETH with 0.0005% of that in 5 years?”

Matthew Spoke — @MattSpoke: “This bet needs to happen! I’ll take it. ⅕. 5 dApps will be built on @Aion_network within 5 years that will have 10,000 DAU and 100,000 MAU over any consecutive 6 month period. Max pain bet of 1,000,000 AION or 100 BTC. Jimmy, just to be clear, I’m dead serious on this”.
