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

    Since per-node PoSE has proven to be so difficult to implement on Platform, why not have the Core masternode quorums perform a simple check on Platform's reachability? If Platform is up, they get paid. When it is down, that Dash which would normally get burned/locked to create Credits and pay...

    Should we QUIT platform-evolution?

    That's the thing that has me confused. DAPI is what I've been waiting for, because I always assumed that initial "D" would include the entire masternode network. But if DAPI only runs on a POS sidechain of limited distribution, that "D" loses some of its punch to differentiate us from the...

    Dash, nor any of its subcomponents, can allow Censorship of any kind.

    Fear of being identified by mnowatch as a multi-MN operator might already be a cause of low voter turnout. I guess that chilling effect would also extend to HPMN participation too, unfortunately.

    looks like HPMN will be a boon for mnowatch. It'll have more data to confirm its cluster guesses. We may even see some HP collaterals created from inputs of multiple "individuals" posing as standalone clusters. And formerly non-correlated 1K individual nodes can now be identified as 10K...

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

    If you're saying that each proposal should have those three options (YES/NO/OTHER) then the NO and OTHER options should in theory produce the same binary result of NO. If the submitter wanted to know if he should take the positive action of "killing" versus not killing, only the YES gives that...

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

    I don't understand. Those would all be independent proposals. If the overall desire of the network voters was not to be killed, then they would vote NO on a) and NO on b) and a strong YES on the c) choice would indicate that another proposal needs to be submitted, which they might ultimately...

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

    You mean it was not contentious as determined subjectively by community observers? Obviously the clear vote result proved that it was not contentious after-the-fact. Perhaps the way to avoid contention when using the budget funding system to poll the network is to submit only binary choices.

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

    Wouldn't the gold standard for doing this be the 2MB block size increase? We touted that particular "vote" as a major DAO success to the entire crypto world as something Bitcoin could not do. The budget system is set up to distribute Dash to a winning proposal. It also happens to be able to be...

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

    One of my points was that in a free and fungible money system, we don't get to know who the whales are or if they even exist. It's just quantities of Dash, not people. If the network gets taken down by its own money, then it deserved to get taken down. That's simple. You're right though, I...

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

    You do realize that the impulse to limit whales here is anti-capitalistic in nature, right? Making educated guesses in attempt to identify MNO clusters and whales is all fine and good, but we should not be making any direction-changing decisions based on the data. Don't get me wrong, that...

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

    Can someone explain again why one of the possible options isn't just to have Platform be optional for any masternode who wants to participate for a chance at some extra revenue through platform fees? Is the problem that nobody will want to use platform at first so the nodes won't have much...

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

    Only incentivising a portion seems strage to me. If something is better, then everyone should aspire to do it. Otherwise it is not really a pure "incentive." So this actually means you want to DISincentivise or disuade people from running platform nodes because you only want only good actors...

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

    I agree that there seems to be multiple ways to look at the decentralization/distribution issue. Maybe my vote would be for (c). I see Quantum/DCG looking at it consistently from the standpoint of the entire network's security--which is understandable because if the whole platform goes down or...

    security in evolution

    Fingerprint is very low security. It is more for convenience, and is a bit better than the traditional "slide to unlock." That's why when you set up fingerprint security on the phone, it also forces you to use a real password too, sometimes. But for small amounts/daily use, it would be fine...

    Me too. I loved the Linux "hardening" tutorials!
