    Software Proving Spending Efficiency

    I noticed, reading over other proposals, that there is a Dash Watch (or will be?), and this project would probably best fit under that framework. It's just a good tool for such a group to use to evaluate where opportunities may be internationally, and where proposals are succeeding and failing...

    Software Proving Spending Efficiency

    Thanks for the reply, T. Heights. Definitely feels better to get a comment than to get none! :) I hope to get some votes on this poll and a few more comments (especially from Masternode Owners or someone with Core). And that's whether they tell me this is unnecessary and already covered, or...

    Software Proving Spending Efficiency

    Hi Dash Community! This is Tony...you might remember me from a pretty popular project we did together, the Dash Expansion of the Lula Bowl, at Skatopia. Your (our? I've hodl'd a little since Darkcoin, so I feel like "our" might apply :) ) community sponsored a more than one week event with...

    Transaction fees - how do they work?

    Thanks, but I don't think anything at the link, unless I'm mistaken, answered my question.

    Transaction fees - how do they work?

    Is this still the plan with Evo? I think a total number of transactions might not be a good determining factor, because it would hurt microtransactions perhaps. Maybe it should instead assess it by total value of transactions, or maybe a certain threshold of whichever is greater (if X...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    Taxes are compulsory payments by definition, with threats of violence to back them. It's just extortion. Changing the name of it and calling the mafia who runs the protection racket "govt" doesn;t change that. Thereby, all taxes are just extortion, and thereby unethical in a normative sense...

    How in the hell did this above quoted comment get labeled trolling by someone?! lol...the troll is the one who thinks THAT is trolling. Which is why we're having this discussion. The current anonymity has a major point of failure to that goal being realized. You said it was "inevitable" people...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    I can see why, and don't care. It's insulting and illogical if no evidence is presented beyond "I have a feeling he's the same guy". It's just a way to discredit someone instead of addressing their points, period. The insinuations wouldn't bother me if it wasn't being used to replace debate on...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    We can cross that bridge when we come to it...we aren't there yet at all. I'd bet in 10 years, there will still be paper fiat everywhere. And if Dash uses mob rule (the democratic method) to tax people, I'm out. I'm not going to be taxed that way. You can jail me or kill me first. I'm done with...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    So do I...but then paying taxes and whatnot wouldn't be inevitable at all. That would logically imply the ability to be entirely anonymous (or as much as possible) and avoid state and (other) criminal coercion (like blackmailers or kidnappers or extortionists who might try to compromise MNs and...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    A) It's not only a matter of time if you do something to make it more anonymous...I mean, cash already facilitates not paying taxes for many people. If you don't want the same level of anonymity that helps me and others NOT pay the extortion (taxes), then you don't really want to be a form of...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    Another conspiracy theory. PLEASE, I beg the admins, prove I'm one person with one account. I will help prove it by posting on my social media under my real name as to my name here. Another poster also asked to be exposed so this nonsense troll shit about us all being one person can stop. I am...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    I really am not liking the responses here. They gravitate between denial of the state's capabilities to compromise any anonymity as the network currently stands, telling people to basically just go use other coins with better anon features (as opposed to pledging not to sellout and sacrifice the...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    I know about fungibility and Evan's statements, and how essentially fungibility has a lot to do with anonymity. And I can agree we have no test case to prove the DGBB has the power to fundamentally steer the core away from something the MNs don't want (I don't recall a specific case of that)...

    Dash needs to implement Shadowcash technology and truly be anonymous.

    The developers/programmers need not stop working on other stuff. They need only agree that what we're asking for be a priority. If it is not, MNs should vote to do something about it. If that doesn't work, then we know the governance system is flawed severely. But to be sure, the concerns in...
