    Technical feedback on pre-proposal please

    Thanks, and you're right. I've modified the proposal to say, "For each proposal, if a masternode has not voted in this or previous cycles (Yes, No or Abstain), it will not be included in the final count."

    Technical feedback on pre-proposal please

    Hello, I am looking for technical feedback on the following pre-proposal (viability etc). I've tried to keep this minimal and to the point: By the end of a voting cycle, if a masternode has not cast any votes (Yes, No or Abstain), it will not be included in the final count for that cycle...

    Pre-proposal: Community Voting Expansion

    @stan.distortion Understood and I contemplated this for quite a while but ultimately I concluded that deep pockets (Binance etc) would ultimately spin up masternodes to gain votes and that would be no different to where we are now. AFAIK, Binance is running 120+ masternodes using customer money...

    Question about Dash Usernames

    It was me a couple of years ago when the specs were still up in the air. The devs originally had the idea of doing Ethereum style usernames but there were concerns over privacy e.g. people seeing how much others were being paid, or seeing a list of other people's contacts. Since then it has...

    Does dash be transacted as fast as it claim ?

    In some parts of the world, or in some specific use cases, dash is very well used. Dash is quite strong in Latin America and growing well in some parts of Asia. Take a look at this table where dash is number five: https://cryptwerk.com/coins/ I suspect Eth and Litecoin are used more by long...

    10 Reasons Why Dash is not an "Alt" Coin

    Haha, now you're just being paranoid. I replied with three paragraphs. The first two paragraphs related directly to points 5 and 7 of your original post, namely coin mixing and username security / Dash Platform. How is it you can mention security but I shouldn't respond to it? We can keep this...

    10 Reasons Why Dash is not an "Alt" Coin

    @Cofresí Thank you for this explanation and it's somewhat good to hear dash devs are shy of using Microsoft products / third party libraries etc with such important code. My concerns regarding an independent audit(s) still stands though because, to my knowledge, dash has not initiated such...

    Dash Core Group Q2 2020 Summary Call - Thursday, 23 July 2020

    Dash's codebase continues to diverge from bitcoin and AFAIK the last independent audit was five or six years ago. Will DCG commit to an independent security audit and code review within the next 12 months? If not, why not? Being an open source project, bug bounties and testing obviously help...

    Yes, dash is the best in so many ways. Some projects have merit and it doesn't really help that much to put other projects down to make dash look better.. unless, of course, it's true, in which case I fully support an all out attack. The Lightning Network is a good example of a failed project...

    10 Reasons Why Dash is not an "Alt" Coin

    Coin mixing is done at the protocol level but it's not entirely trust-less, not yet anyway. Dr. Tapp has previously explained how masternode(s) could, in theory, be modified to track transactions as they pass through. Indeed, the bulk of coin tracking / user tracking is done in real-time as it...

    Litecoin is about to get better, faster and easier privacy than dash. XMR because when people called it a privacy coin, the community didn't spend years trying to convince people otherwise. MakerDAO because it's the largest DAO with a more inclusive community than dash. $70,000 not required to...

    Yes. It was Ryan that started this "conversation" about inflation. I think it's all just an exercise on how to direct MNOs to a single outcome. The truth is, if DCG had been doing their job properly, we wouldn't be in this situation. Every quarter they do a presentation and tell us how real...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    There's a lot of new code already running on the mainnet masternode network. Usernames and the DAPI are a part of Dash Platform, on evonet and scheduled for mainnet this year. Most, if not all the DIPs are complete, the blueprints from which Dash Platform is built. Dash Platform will go live...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    The inventor of an object can not dictate how it will be used, for the people will decide regardless of the inventor's wish. The harnessing of nuclear fission was not to build bombs that will exterminate all mankind.. but it's possible. By all means, put in a proposal to raise the proposal fee.

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    It boggles my mind. You'd think a company working within blockchain, cryptography and finance would automatically decide for themselves that perhaps a fresh set of eyes, an independent security audit, might be beneficial. Professionals in the IT space - and especially this space - know that bug...

    @DeepBlue I didn't bother to read beyond the first few lines. I'm not interested in yours or anyone elses nitpicking. Submit your own proposal, put up or shut up. I have not edited this proposal, please provide evidence. There may of been a few type corrections during the Concept stage (unsure)...

    "you" "you" "you", what is wrong with you? It's not about me, the proposal doesn't mention Dash Watch, you're either twisting things out of context or challenging one thing while ignoring others. You have voted No so what does it matter now? Going to change your mind? - no, I didn't think so...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    @DeepBlue I think the diversity of opinion and expertise among MNOs is too large for us to agree on what dash values should be. Instead, we can form a living document based on the outcome of previous proposals. For example, there was a winning proposal that said transaction fees should remain...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    You keep saying the proposal is mixed when it's not. There is significant divergence from the bitcoin codebase that has never been formally and independently reviewed, and Dash Platform is completely new code using third party tools that may pose security risks for dash as a whole. If you...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    @DeepBlue MNOs will vote however they choose, I'm beyond caring. When I state facts, people here don't like them. That concept was sitting there well before it became a proposal and people should be asking themselves, why did no one at DCG themselves ever respond to it? - even when the proposal...

    What was wrong with inflation when dash was $1500? It's very simple to understand this; DCG has been consuming 60% of the treasury and yet under-performing in their job. And the evidence is not just price support but more importantly rank and comparison to similar projects. Dash is now rank 23...

    Hopefully the proposal will be ditched when they realize that value-add should be given to end users, not MNOs. This forced proposal "debate" is exactly why voting should be stripped from MNOs, because the goals of MNOs are completely out of whack with it's U-S-E-R-S. MNOs are paid to keep the...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    Fact: The concept sat there, pre-proposal, with almost no comments because MNOs don't bother to look. Dash Nexus was paid for from the treasury, you'd think MNOs might actually take the time without being directed from somewhere else. And as for time to debate, be my guest because I...

    Money that moves from MNOs to proposal owners can open up MNOs to legal attack i.e. the funding of illegal activity. This is one big reason I could not possibly support this proposal. The Dash Iran proposals is one such example; many American MNOs were nervous to provide support to a country...

    Proposal: Dedicated Dash Videos to my 133,000 Audience

    Yes, I understand and I'm sure it's not easy. Personally, I watch very few crypto youtubers these days. Of course, I'm only speaking for myself and maybe I'm in a minority, but I kind of think that a lot of people are into crypto because they see it as an alternative stock market, ultimately...

    02 Decentralised Decision Making: What Are Dash's Core Values?

    Yes, don't get me wrong, I think testing and bug bounties are essential, but I also think it's extremely important to have something that is more substantial and independent. Projects like cardano are heavy on academic scrutiny and tezos is strong on formal verification.
