    Announcing DASH.ORG!

    I was pretty on-the-fence about the big expenditure until I found this thread and read the quoted part of Evan's OP. There was a clear reason not to consult the community (protecting negotiations) and these three guys stuck their own necks out there to cover the costs; they will be requesting...

    Dash by 2016

    I didn't mean to suggest the sky is falling - I apologize if my last post was unclear. I remain very optimistic about the future of Dash. The majority of my Dash was accumulated just before Darkcoin saw its rapid upshot to our all-time-high - I made the choice then to hang on and trust this...

    Pre-Proposal Discussion - OpenBazaar / Dash Integration

    Absolutely fantastic list, TanteStefana! This might be an oddball suggestion, but I'll throw it out there anyway... As a buyer using a currency which can theoretically sever the connection between my payment and my identity, I would like some non-public purchasing option. I'm not even...

    Dash by 2016

    Pay close attention, boys and girls - this moment clearly illustrates the divide in our own economy between the true believers and the people chasing fast money. We sometimes comfort ourselves by looking at the sum of all investment in our project - always remember that a sizable portion of...

    Pre-Proposal Discussion - OpenBazaar / Dash Integration

    A decentralized exchange and decentralized marketplace have to be at the very top of everyone's wishlist right now. Those sort of projects are quite obviously enormous undertakings, but a big part of me really wishes we had the resources the spin our masternode network into answering those...

    Can the DASH wallet show actual .dat file names

    I wrote a whole thread about this over the weekend - you might find it interesting (if you have the stamina to make it through). I have always thought it odd that crypto wallets pull a file from a directory that is usually hidden to "normal users". I wouldn't even be able to count the number...

    Simple chart plot to show mixing speed

    That is very useful information. Thank you for taking the time to run the test and workup the graph. I've always found mixing to be frustrating - it does seem like a great deal happens fast, and then it hits a brick wall and drags on and on. Come to think of it, I have almost always run out...

    Forum dashtalk logs the ip?

    It ultimately falls upon the individual to safeguard their own identity. It sounds to me like we all agree that it doesn't really matter if DashTalk logs IPs or not - determined malicious users can easily circumvent IP blocking, and the Surveillance State can easily log connections in/out of...

    Want to Buy a Good Idea? Neither Do I.

    We must pull ourselves out of the rabbit hole of technical marvel at stop packaging our marketing in terms that would most appeal to us. As I explained in the second half of my previous post, people like us will not be our salvation. Our collective coffers are not sizable enough to pull off...

    Want to Buy a Good Idea? Neither Do I.

    I am afraid some of you guys are still completely missing my point. Every reference to Bitcoin or how we are better is totally off-message. The average consumer does not care about Bitcoin. Minotaur provided one of the best "tl;dr" summations I could have hoped for: Most folks in this...

    Want to Buy a Good Idea? Neither Do I.

    I agree completely. But take a moment to empty your mind completely and re-read your post. Then ask yourself that last question I posed - would any of that appeal to or resonate with John Q. Public? The average person most likely does not participate in their own real-life democratic process...

    Want to Buy a Good Idea? Neither Do I.

    My thread title is demonstrably false - buying into a good idea is precisely what I have done. But most people do not trade in ideas. Most people will probably recognize a good idea, and some among them will go so far as to casually endorse a good idea - but real products and services are the...

    Development Update - Oct 19, 2015

    Really exciting news! It really does sound like you guys are right on the cusp of releasing another update that will again remake the yardstick by which all other cryptocurrencies are measured. It is this spirit of innovation that has kept me tuned-in from the start. Evan's announcement is...

    Whatsapp to Send and recieve dashpay

    So you're surprised then that when given a choice, most people - most of the time - will choose to abdicate their own power of choice? Just look around, man - this part of human nature is precisely the reason we are all here having these kinds of discussions. Projects like Dash are the...
