    Should Platform run on all nodes or should Platform run only on High Performance nodes ?

    @vazaki3 , don't be silly. If you are running a node of basically any blockchain, you likely already are hosting data related to porn/WikiLeaks/etc and have been for years.

    Should Platform run on all nodes or should Platform run only on High Performance nodes ?

    With regard to @virgile 's and @QuantumExplorer's comments about having to choose either A) low fees, or B) network-wide distributed storage--is that perhaps a false dilemma if we consider than we can (and should) subsidize the storage costs? In other words, can't Platform storage be a "loss...

    Should Platform run on all nodes or should Platform run only on High Performance nodes ?

    What has stood out to me most in this discussion is the comment section on DCG's most recent funding proposal. In it is discussed the possibility of masternodes/supermasternodes having the ability to select which kinds of Platform content they will and will not host. This was my first time...

    What is proof-of-service?

    In researching this question, I'm quite surprised to say that Google has only shown me two results that have "proof of service" in their titles: this and this. So, really, what is it? And how does it differ from PoS and/or PoW? And, most importantly, why does it matter to Dash? Thanks.

    New DCG Interim CEO: Patrick Quinn

    Glad there is some forward motion here. Congratulations. Though I do agree with @GrandMasterDash that to prevent an obvious conflict of interest -- doesn't matter if the role is voluntary or temporary -- Patrick should resign as Trust Protector. A resignation would not be likely to make any...

    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...
