    Cheapest, Easiest Exchange/Service For GBP

    Having said that, the low hanging fruit seems to be GBP to Crypto. So, a good place to start and expand out from, maybe.

    Cheapest, Easiest Exchange/Service For GBP

    Well, first I want to make it clear that while I am a big fan of Dash, I would also look at such a project as an investment opportunity and, as such, would certainly want to include at least bitcoin, ETH and ETC, XMR, XRP, and probably others. Which would be a direct exchange with GBP (and maybe...

    Cheapest, Easiest Exchange/Service For GBP

    Its a problem with all Cryptos and GBP. That means there is a market for a supplier/local merchant at reasonable rates. Anyone want to set one up with me?

    I like the look of the new T570, but will wait for cheaper Ryzen powered 8 core.

    WTB Laptop from US-only website mailed to Europe

    Hi. I'd be interested to know how this went. I've been signed up to the US Lenovo sales newsletter since I lived and worked in Texas six years ago. Wish I'd bought one then while I was over there. Currently have a HP Pavillion with i7 2670QM. Actually not a bad laptop, especially since the...

    We should change voting from Masternodes to EVERYONE

    Depends what one's definition of fair is. Is any type of uneven distribution of wealth fair? Are some types of uneven distribution of wealth fair and others not? I would agree that effort should be rewarded in some cases. But not others. Let's consider Bob and Bill and Ben. Bill has little...

    We should change voting from Masternodes to EVERYONE

    My point being that any group will be incentivised to make choices that improve their own situation, whether or not it improves the situation of those outside the group. And many improvements are partly or wholly defined/by nature relative change rather than absolute, i.e. by increasing the...

    NEW MEMBERS: Welcome to Dash! Introduce yourself...

    As long as it doesn't just create a new one. e.g. Miners and Masternode owners.

    Good for what and who? They will be incentivised to make decisions that keep or make themselves richer than everyone else. This is human nature. Does the current Dash system prevent that from happening both now and in the future?

    Universal Dividend and Web of Trust for Dashcoin

    As I already mentioned, why not, then, go fully "just" and have time-limited money that cannot be accumulated as it ceases to exist after a certain amount of time. Say daily allowance with life of just that day.

    Universal Dividend and Web of Trust for Dashcoin

    It's certainly another model. I'm not pushing this idea, but why not go for the further democratisation of a currency that expires? So, we all get a (EDIT: equal) daily allowance that expires after, or time-limited to one day. This would eliminate the possibility of accumulating wealth by...

    Isn't Dash PoS, at least for Masternode operators?

    You could also make the comparison to how many banks there are in the world, which might be more like 4 or 5 thousand.
