    Pre-proposal: Renewable enegy DAO

    Time to dig this back up again, it's become kinda important. The original first post probably isn't worth reading, far too many technicals on individual installations and nothing like enough getting to the point. It's a zero profit DAO to run a renewable energy network. All our major...

    Should we QUIT platform-evolution?

    What if we had a killer problem looking for a solution? A hell of a lot of people are about to have a serious problem with energy and it's something a DAO can fix, a zero profit renewable energy network. Consumers get the offer of half price electricity in return for allowing access to a...

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

    It's worth having a read over GNUnet, it already has a lot of those aspects covered and a whole host of other security, storage and networking features. Not saying it's the ideal solution, I'd imagine Platform would need something far more tailored to its needs and there are probably far better...

    Should we QUIT platform-evolution?

    I'll probably get a lifetime ban and my entire post history deleted if I mention projects but the only thing I can think of that hasn't been implemented elsewhere is DAPI and my knowledge is far from extensive, could be someone has beaten us to that one too. Don't get me wrong, Dash does have...

    Should we QUIT platform-evolution?

    Other projects have already beaten us to much of platforms functionality by a few years and don't seem to be booming on account of it. Personally I think Dapps, advanced tokens etc. have practically limitless potential and are well worth perusing but how long that actually takes to take off is...

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

    I'm not talking about Platform, if that can't make efficient use of any and all resources available then it won't go the distance, just masternodes. It would apply to full nodes too ofc but that's the price you pay to handle craploads of (monetary) transactions with absolute security and it...

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

    The situation in reverse could work out well, concentration of wealth is gonna happen regardless of how many MNs run, that's just how it works in the real world and for the MN's that might not be not a bad thing. They provide security and coordination, full duplication on high spec hardware...

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

    I'd agree with you on the binary options, others could certainly work but it's hard enough to get MN's to vote so complications wont help. Platform certainly offers the opportunity for much more sophisticated and tailored voting but participation will always be tricky.

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

    It's a recognised legal entity that's had a long-standing vulnerability where a small number of large stakeholders can gain veto power over the decision making process (and that's built in so I guess that makes it legitimate). Now we have a proposed update that's would allow a few large...

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

    Amen to that! Those are values that brought crypto into being but a question worth bringing up is traceability. We accept it, being able to follow a coin all the way back to creation if a fundamental component, a basis of trust. Does the same apply to stored data? It probably does, much of that...

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

    If you're determined to go the centralised and censorable route the just get on with it, there's no need for any screwing around with rewards. Plenty of MNOs will run it just to contribute, MN rewards are still over 10x VPS costs and their incentive is to see that figure get higher. Sacrificing...

    Pre-Proposal: 50-50-Voting

    Looks like a meritocracy web of trust kind of thing. Wouldn't work for the Dash DAO because everything revolves around the collateral but something similar would be ideal for DAO's along the lines of Incubator and the DMH but needs dynamic rather than fixed allocation because the 'fair' value...

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

    There is no difference, if one can be censored then so can the other. You use knives, right? But they get used in murders every day! The tool cannot be held accountable for the uses to which it is put and exactly the same thing applies to money, it's part of the definition of money. Why should...
