    Evolution question; DashDrive

    I would like to run a full backup storage server or two if the budget can pay me some DASH. I will run it from a 1Gbps (up to 10Gbps is available here) home fiber connection in Asia with one from the actual physical location while another server thru a VPN at another physical Asian site. All...

    Proposal: Infrastructure - Basic Needs

    That's good to know. When will we see Evolution coming out? I have to admit that I have been very lazy not reading/following the development here recently. After all, my MNs are running happily and stably so why bother to read the forum. But, then I wonder what other altcoins are doing so I did...

    Proposal: Infrastructure - Basic Needs

    Hey, guys. I want to have a discussion about email account for DASH evolution. I remember seeing it requires a ProtonMail account which is fine for the general user. However, I have real concern about using Gmail or ProtonMail. I have been searching for a solution. Personal email server will not...

    Proposal: Infrastructure - Basic Needs

    I did not take part in the discussion. Perhaps, preventing the DDoS attack will be an administrative burden. Protonmail got DDoS attack back in Nov 2015. I think they paid 15 BTC ransom for the first attack. I think we should have something like FlowingMail on our MN network because Gmail is...

    Proposal: Hardware Wallets For Build And Test

    Good proposal. However, if any manufacturer out there is reading this thread, I wish that they make something without a USB or whatsoever connection to a PC. The USB firmware malware could be a concern. Without any connection, it would be nice to have a tiny camera to read a QR code from...

    Say no to three backup servers

    Thanks, Evan. Whatever storage technology the DASH team choose to implement the DASHDrive, please make sure that this storage technology is active-active highly available and horizontally scalable.

    Say no to three backup servers

    We do not need to enforce everyone to have a full copy of the entire DASH drive. But, we can reward MN operators with such capacity so that we do not rely solely on the three official full copies. Perhaps, we can make MNs work like volume manager in traditional sense which decide how many copies...

    Say no to three backup servers

    The hard drives are connected directly through TCP/IP rather than through a SATA or SAS. Each kinetic HDD has an ARM chip with 64 MB cache and 512 MB of RAM. The ARM controls how the data is written. Instead of writing to the media with tracks and sector through the SATA/SAS port by the OS, you...

    Say no to three backup servers

    TanteStefana, have the core developers looked into the Kinetic Open Storage solution? It would be nice to know that the developers had actually considered this approach even if they thought it was not the correct one. Would like to hear their comments on using Kinetic Open Storage and IPFS.

    Say no to three backup servers

    We may have 3500+ masternodes but there may not be 3500+ copies of the data because there are thin provisioning and deduplication in storage. So, I think it makes sense to require every masternode to have a copy but make it possible to do dedup or share storages behind the masternodes one owns...

    Poll: Dash Direction

    Having a choice to be opaque makes the so-called transparent irrelevant.

    Poll: Dash Direction

    It will be difficult to push DASH ATM/Vending/POS forward with anonymity unless you bring anonymity to every other coin. They can ban DASH ATM/Vending/POS for anonymity but they cannot ban all other coins without inherent anonymity. At the end, you shapeshift from our tier-2 network to some...

    Poll: Dash Direction

    Let's provide anonymity to other coins through our tier-2 network. Let's mix other coins with a DAPI multi-cryptocurrency wallet then screw the AML/KYC compliant for everyone.

    Poll: Dash Direction

    ATMs / Vending / PoS Retail will have all the AML/KYC issues. Gambling / Gaming is not as attractive as being listed in an exchange. A crypto exchange itself is a big casino to many people. So, I think we need a decentralized shapeshift like App on DAPI. Everything else is just meaningless...

    Evolution - Dashdrive Discussion

    It is possible to buy a Xeon-D machine and run it with a 1Gbps fiber at home to host 16+ MNs with 6~8 HDDs. It is really low cost. If someone is willing to pay me some DASH, I could write a guide on how to do this. Give me an offer and I will write it up if the offer is right.
