    great questions @qwizzie :) no, adjusting reward allocation doesn't effect the emission curve. But there could be other issues within that... for example allocating more % to the treasury can have a centralizing effect as it can reduce the market pressure on large DAOs to optimize and...

    "As anybody given any thought to just reducing the ammount of dash created?" Yes of course, this is fundamental to cryptos going back to the birth of Bitcoin. As opposed to fiat currencies, cryptos have predetermined supply curves, so everyone who mines or buys that crypto along the curve is...

    Announcing my departure from Dash Core Group

    Thank you for the support! Lots of future DAPs in mind, right now I think everyone should focus on Core in their final Platform development / release process, with the first DAP being DashPay mobile payments they are finalizing, and let them take time to get that right and secure for mainnet as...

    Announcing my departure from Dash Core Group

    Hi all, Now that the Evo protocol design is pretty much complete and implementations are running on DevNet I feel my main work in Core is done and I met my commitment to Evan that I made back in 2016 to help move Dash beyond raw, hard to use payments to solve a mainstream, usable, scalable and...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    If I can try to break this down in a simpler way: in DAPs BU names will be used to remember a connection you make with a counterparty, within a wallet. Whether that's B2B, B2C or C2C, the purpose will be having a symbol you remember so once you do a single trusted step (a user proves to you...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    Because there's no integrated way to do that trustlessly because DNS is a separate protocol. In other words, I can create http://grandmasterdash.somedap.tld or even http://somedap.tld/grandmasterdash today and claim thats you. Then lets say BU are released and you register that exact name -...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    For an A record to work it needs to be configured in a DNS name server, i.e. there'd need to be some 3rd party bridge between Dash protocol and DNS. If what you're implying is, is it possible to create subdomains per BU name on some domain then yes, e.g. andydark.somedap.tld, and that's one of...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    I don't think increasing the minimum length to 6 would have negative effects at launch (even though I don't agree that shorter names have a higher intrinsic value and even if they do the Name market can resolve that). And if we up the minimum length to 6 it just means the shorter names are not...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    For further information, I’ll post the bullet points on BU name requirements from a recent presentation I did internally. This is background info & design rationale on the public DIP 0005 content so it’s nothing new but might help provide more information: Blockchain User requirements...
