  • Each prize & beneficiary wallets will be multisign, there will be 2 signatories of which it will be necessary to sign to process payment transaction to the winner of the raffle and project beneficiary?
  • Backers can play anonymously, but the proposal owners must be registered, as well as the other possible signers of the prize wallets
  • Mega Dash Raffle should be a discord channel to support/help desk and proposal owners promote tickets sells

Nov 16 - Project Updates

hi everyone,

We are in the final stage of the migration to the mainet and final security fix, we hope next week to do the go live.

During the stress test stage we identified an issue with the multisig transaction, when the raffle event has sold a significant amount of tickets, the final payment transaction to the winner and the beneficiary project is very large. Then the second signer (the creator of the raffle) can not execute that transaction and sign it using the Dash Core Console, because the interface has a character limit. The unique option is to do the transaction from the Dash-cli terminal, but it is complex and we believe that it loses the usability that we are looking for. We are going to create an improvement request in the Github / dashpay group and while we are going to temporary deactivate the multisig features until that improvement is released.

Thank you very much for your patience and trust in our team

Finally we are proud and happy to announce today this new fundraising platform is online.

Come and buy benefit raffle tickets to support dash projects and get a chance to win, and/or create your own raffles to fundraise your projecs! https://www.megadashraffle.org/ watch this video to know more about this new platflorm for Dash community

Hi DASH community,

As many you will know, Mega Dash Raffle (MDR) project was proposed as a fundraising alternative for DASH projects, thanks to funds we earned in DASH BOOST, we could finish its development.

Our team has maintained the operational platform since November 2018, a period in which, unfortunately, only 4 raffles have been registered (2 being by the AgroCognitive project) with very low sales levels.

These low levels on ticket sales (where the MDR takes 10% to pay for their maintenance) are compromising its continuity (it costs approximately 250 USD a month to keep it working) and we have been forced to define a date of shutdown, if it still failing to attract interest from DASH project owners.

We want to share these results with you to help us to make a decision about to turn off MDR or to relaunch and encourage its use as an alternative source of DASH to treasury funds or even to DASH BOOST.

We fully understand that the development of MDR was at our risk and if this modality is not attractive for the community, we have no criticism against them.

Currently there are no registered raffles, but we will create one to continue fundraising for AgroCognitive as a final MDR's raffle event.

We invite you to comment on this post and give us your opinion that will be very well received
It seems MDR has slipped under the radar of most people. It's disappointing because I think the concept has legs. In fact, I'd like to see something like this added directly into dash's governance. I suspect part of the reason for such a low turnout is the name, it sounds a little bit scamy, when actually it's not. You've also got the chicken and egg problem and I'm not sure you've given this enough time to get traction. What will it take to keep this going?

Thank you @GrandMasterDash for taking the time to give us your comments.
We had not thought about the MDR name. We liked that name because it was allusive to the largest raffle modality available on the platform, but I understand that they can be interpreted as misleading propaganda.

We would like to give you time to MDR and motivate project proponents to adopt it. But we would need to finance it for at least 3 months. We could request these funds through Dash Boost, if we have the approval of the MNOs and schedule a conversation with the DAO about how the network could adopt this platform.

Thank you again!
