* Platform having a bug that could take down the network - PoSe doesn't do anything.
* Not enough nodes will actually start strong enough Platform - PoSe helps a little.
Is there anything else that could help with these two specific safety issues, besides having to raise collateral and having to create seperate masternode groups with each masternode group providing Core services and one specific masternode group having higher hardware requirements & providing Platform services as well ? (AKA the HPM solution).
Taken into account the additional solutions proposed by Dash community members (Rion, krilen, denk) that emerged over time.
How well would these alternative solutions handle these two specific safety issues in your opinion ?
Because those two safety issues seems to me the two most important safety issues with regards to launching Dash Platform.
Or maybe we should compare all your mentioned safety issues with the alternative solutions and see what they fix exactly.
Current safety issues with Platform on all nodes :
* Nodes could propose blocks, but not respond to queries
* Platform having a bug that could take down the network
* Not enough nodes will actually start strong enough Platform
* Sharding security

HPM solutions : throwing HPM in there as well, in case any of the above safety issues also applies to HPM, for example not having enough HPM to start strong enough for Platform, or perhaps not beeing able to do sharding effectively or secure enough in the future once we go this centralized HPM route.
