    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...

    12.1 Announcement / Finalized Date / Project Update

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

    Reading this forum on a Ultra Wide Screen ?

    IMO, the reason for a high-resolution monitor is so you can increase efficiency by having more content on your screen at once, without having to minimize and restore windows all the time. Most website content is designed for 1024 or 1280 width these days, I think. When I have a high res...

    Is Dash-core more secure than electrum dash for long term storage?

    Understood. That's exactly why wallet.dat is the prime target of crypto-thefts--it's easy. Also not nearly as secure if someone gets ahold of one of those flash drives and runs decryption software on it. I can't believe I forgot to mention the other prime benefit of Electrum-Dash! Offline...

    Is Dash-core more secure than electrum dash for long term storage?

    Electrum allows you to use a 12 word mnemonic to backup your wallet(s). For cold storage, you don't need an installed electrum anywhere. You just need those 12 words, plus a password for each individual wallet you make. Restoring is very quick, since there is no full blockchain...

    Proposal: Hardware Wallets For Build And Test

    A low-end secondary computer capable of hosting a masternode cold wallet can cost less than price of a Trezor. If you're using a virused-up daily driver for your MN cold wallet, you're doing it wrong. What's more, you don't need to fire up that masternode-use-only computer very often at all...

    The President Trump and the Financial Privacy

    Dash Evolution is aimed squarely at that target! "Ease of use" and "decentralized" have historically been mutually exclusive. Evolution will finally change that.

    Dash now on KeepKey

    https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/proposal-hardware-wallets-for-build-and-test.9091/#post-100486 Check this thread out. You will soon be able to safely hold your Dash on a KeepKey while at the same time earn interest by operating a masternode with those funds.

    BATTLE OF THE SECURE MESSAGING APPS: HOW SIGNAL BEATS WHATSAPP

    Secure communications on mobile phones is pretty tough. I can share some of my knowledge in this area for fellow Dashers. First and foremost you need to think about the security of the hardware and its operating system. Absolute 100% security is unachievable. The best you can do, IMO, is not...

    CZ/SK community management proposal

    @Comodore , are you planning to attend this conference? https://www.eventbrite.com/e/trezor-20-hackathon-registration-25845164583 It would be great if someone from the Dash community could represent us there.

    CoinReform - exchange your coins

    If you want to attract tor users who actually value privacy, you need to get rid of the Cloudfare security check and not require javascript. Also, having a .onion address is preferable to tor users rather than https.

    Do you see value in categorizing proposals as "core" or "community"? Why/why not?

    At first I thought categories were a good idea for the simple fact that it would make voting easier. With the recent changeover from a single big-budget Public Awareness fund to individual items, the number of individual proposals that a MN voter must examine is certainly increasing. Any sort...

    Dash "stock split"

    Isn't one of the primary uses of Evolution to make crypto easier to use? AFAIK, Evolution does not touch the underlying stable, predictable, visible, reliable, un-gameable etc. monetary layer. Instead, front-end software talks to the network through the DAPI, so in theory you can run...
