    Just going to post this here, some additional clarity and guidance regarding the security issue as the SEC has ruled that Ethereum is not a security, and offered guidance to other projects to help make the determination, and also is offering to work with projects to determine a status. “In...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    Exactly, the reality is there are a wealth of options. One idea that our team has been kicking around is this, it's the simplest and also the most straightforward. Since we already require a paying membership to vote, the dash could simply be distributed with each vote. Members will vote for the...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    It would be a good experiment indeed though creating a paywall typically causes usage to decline sharply. When was the last time you put your credit card number into a paywalled news site who's link you clicked not realizing it was paywalled? And if it is optional then we are relying on...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    Excellent question. All artists today expect to be paid each time their song is played. For example, Spotify currently pays less than one cent per stream which has prompted sustained outcries from musicians for nearly a decade. For example, sometimes don't get paid at all, one artist got paid...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    Hello Dash Community, Feedbands is a five year old music streaming service. On June 4-6 we tested a feature where we paid our artists 10 cents in Dash every time a song of theirs was streamed. During that time, we were able to: fix some bugs (not all streams were paying) test out some fraud...

    What's Going on at Dash?

    I agree completely. What makes the most sense to me is either using the treasury system, or an offshoot of it that doesn't utilize any of the budget, to allow people to submit goals and MNOs to vote on their adoption. Goals could even have pre-proposal discussions :)

    What's Going on at Dash?

    I've spent a lot of time thinking about this and I very strongly agree with @jeffh. It is necessary that we have a go-to place to send people when they want to learn about dash which is of course dash.org -yet for it to be an effective destination it needs to have up to date and accurate...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    But it doesn't technically settle instantly, it's more of an instant guarantee. The recipient of an instantsend isn't in control of the funds until the standard block confirmations come in, although it's guaranteed they are there. We made this mistake at our recent event, thinking everyone we...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    Great idea, great team, important brand messaging. Intriguing creative. So as not to overlap, we are running a similar brand message with a large budget: Which point to the dashinformer.com landing page, featuring the CNN video of Joel using instant send throughout his daily life. We have...

    Feedbands getting 1243 / 6176 Dash this month. This needs to stop ASAP.

    I will say though, we have achieved something pretty neat on reddit. I think we are delivering on something close to 100% of the page loads at r/cryptocurrency or r/bitcoin I genuinely would like to know if someone can get the page to load without a Dash ad.
