    Dash Core Group Q1 2020 Summary Call - Thursday, 23 April 2020

    To cut down on the network's annual legal expenses, could the Trust absorb the functions of the DIF, or the DIF absorb the functions of the Trust? Why or why not?

    Dash Core Group Q1 2020 Summary Call - Thursday, 23 April 2020

    What are the risks and benefits of leaving the ability to disable the superblock with three keyholders (as is currently the case), versus transferring that power to the network as a whole?

    Proposal: Core Team Public Relations (July)

    In addition, for what it's worth, I suspect that Dash may benefit from transitioning to in-house marketing and PR. It's most convenient to attempt to outsource these needs -- after all, outside PR and marketing companies are already set up. They claim to have indispensable industry...

    Proposal: Core Team Public Relations (July)

    Hi, @Critical Input. I'd just like to answer your 5th question, as it pertains to me. My short-lived PR efforts were with a different company -- one unrelated to Wachsman PR and located on the other side of the country (Wachsman is in New York, the firm I hired is in Los Angeles). Actually...

    Question regarding jurisdiction in which Core Group, Inc. is planning to pay tax

    Regarding Glenn Austin's recent statement that the Dash Core Group intends to request funding for the payment of "state and federal" tax, I realize that I'm confused regarding where DCG is currently registered. MY GUESS is that the New Zealand/Switzerland trust thing is not yet executed, and so...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    @Bertrand256, the proposal is finally up on DashCentral here. Thank you for your patience. @fernando, I have edited the DashCentral proposal's "How will we know if the ads are successful?" section to reflect your input. I look forward to developing metrics via your direct guidance. Thank you.

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    Not too much can backfire when you're already unpopular. :) Regarding the reverse psychology (or self-deprecating) marketing technique, you may care to check out just how many mega-brands have used it successfully over the years when they were in a situation like ours. I'm talking Lenovo...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    I believe the message "Blockchain Payments That Send Instantly," unfortunately, does not get the point across. Why? ALL blockchain payments broadcast instantly. So is a broadcast a send? Is a send a broadcast? We cannot afford for this type of ambiguity to exist in our messaging. At this time...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    Remember that marketing is not about what you, @Daedalifts, want to see -- you're already a customer! A customer so engaged that you're spending your weekend writing on an obscure internet forum about the product you love so much. Marketing is for those who aren't yet customers. The purpose of...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    Thank you for these points about measuring, @fernando. I will speak to my team about Brand Lift, which they've mentioned to me already in the past but which I've not yet looked into. Thanks.

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    PROPOSED: Fund a trial run of "Ignore Dash," a display-based ad campaign scheduled to run in May on websites within the Google Display Network. "Ignore Dash" ads can advertise any number of Dash attributes and integrations, but this run will focus on branding Dash as the coin for "Instant...
