    What got you into blockchain/crypto?

    Unseizable, unstoppable, border-ignoring digital gold, to be used directly as money; no single authority controlling supply, no fractional reserve nonsense.

    Collateralized mining, revisited...

    While it is true that the long term effect of inflation will eventually dilute the value of the coin, the fact that miners/masternodes receive the newly created coins first gives them a substantial advantage. It's sometimes referred to as The Cantillon Effect or the Non-neutrality of Money...

    Thoughts on Reverse Split or Redenominating DASH

    @TroyDASH @revelations86 said people were put off by the price of a whole Dash, not by having to use decimals. If it makes you happy, the wallets could have an option to hide Dash balances entirely. If you say users are bothered by it, obscure it away, under the hood, like they plan to do...

    Thoughts on Reverse Split or Redenominating DASH

    There is no issue here. We don't need those kind of investors, they would just make Dash more volatile. So, when people convert USD to JPY, do they become happier because they have a hundred times more "monies"?

    Congratulations Ryan Taylor , time to crank up the engine

    Something like this was mentioned at the Dash open house event.It would be contingent on research indicating we could safely do so.

    stop dash from getting burned

    It does matter. We need users and investors to trust us and we do that by never changing the rules that govern the amount of coins we create.

    Indeed, now that I look at it, it is the same as the Blockcypher's proposal. Thanks for the confirmation!

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    Yes, that's fine. I just want to point out that the iteration of this process is that we will pick a fee that will gravitate towards the median, but would always be lagging (wouldn't adapt as fast as we would like), while direct voting will give us the median immediately, and thus should be...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Ok, now it is good practice to leave at the top of the proposal: a manual voting line, a link to this proposal on Dashcentral, and also state clearly how many Dash you are asking for (i.e., denominated in Dash, not dollars)

    [IDEA] QT Core Wallet premixing to another wallet (e.g. mobile)

    While reading this thread, and idea came to me. A mobile wallet isn't well suited to mixing coins as needed for privatesend. But the QT wallet could potentially send the mixed coins to it. How? On the last round of mixing, it can just tell the MN to send the coin to an address of that wallet...

    Pre-Proposal: Reduce Proposal Fee to 2 Dash

    Yeah, let's try that out... Suppose all but one of the 4400 masternodes vote to lower the fee to 0.01 Dash. And the one other votes for the fee to be 7,247,463 Dash. The fee will then be raised to the average of 1,647 Dash.

    Pre-Proposal System is Useless

    And that's one reason not to use it (or to take precautions when using it) if you thing they would be interested in you. To be fair, the system can be designed to count your votes without revealing how many MNs you have.

    Pre-Proposal for Time Based Proposal Fee Rebates

    You just made 3 consecutive pre-proposals because another proposal doesn't seem to go the way you wanted. I gave you my honest feedback, if you don't value it, fine, I won't waste my time. I'll be back if and when it's a real proposal for the sake of discussing with the other MNOs. Did you ever...

    Pre-Proposal for Time Based Proposal Fee Rebates

    You want to turn proposals into gambling, which is rather uncanny. It is not the lack of a random chance to win a couple of bucks that is stopping people from submitting proposals. I also don't think incentivising proposals to be made a full month before the deadline is worth the coding time.

    Pre-Proposal for Time Based Proposal Fee Rebates

    What are you trying to achieve here? Because it doesn't seem that the solution matches the problem. The "problem" as I understand it is that it is too risky to pay 5 Dash because there is a chance the proposal might fail for various reasons. Your solution doesn't address this. We are back to...

    Pre-Proposal for Tiered Dash Proposal Fee

    I think this would make the proposal quality inconsistent. You don't need to put as much effort to make a proposal risking 1 Dash as you would a proposal needing 5. For example, 20 shitty proposals @1-1.5 Dash could outprice a worthy proposal that would be made @1.5 but now must pay 2.25. At...

    Can I have 1 Wallet in 2 Computers?

    Don't do that! It's bound to generate problems later on. They will each generate different new addresses and become inconsistent with each other. You might lose coins if you treat them as copies of each other.

    Dash's Instand Send makes crypto more secure

    I think it is a lot of trouble to hack BGPs for a measly double-spend attack. Transactions involving huge chunks of money usually aren't time-sensitive and can wait for a lot of confirmations.

    Writing a “How to do a Dash Proposal” that includes Pre-Proposal instructions – need feedback

    Let DashForce make its own rules, and we can post that in the tutorial. Budget less than 20 Dash? I don't know. IMO we should increase DashForce budget and let them handle small stuff like meetups. @mastermined

    Dash size on harddisk

    You don't control the money in your bank account, the bank does. In crypto, the only way someone can transfer your funds is if they have your private keys. Also, the issuance of money follows a predictable pattern. It is enough that anyone can verify the information on the blockchain at any...

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    Actually it would be fairly simple to make such a site and get it running, and this would be a solution that can scale, no mater the Dash-to-fiat ratio. It also can be done quicker than implementing a 1 Dash proposal fee which would probably require a major update. And so, while I initially...

    How private Dash PrivateSend really is ?

    In my understanding, you use your IP to broadcast transactions, but the Dash network doesn't relay your IP information, so it will be known only by those peers you contacted initially. But yes, even that might be a problem depending on how private you want to be. That is also a good reason for...
