    Pre-proposal: business integration into retail sector

    One aspect of BlockPay I do not like is that they take a .5% or 1% fee (I've read or heard both). If you can integrate with ERPNext where users can opt to simply store dash in their own wallet you got a deal. It's the best open source and free enterprise solution for businesses I could find.

    Proposal: open-source DASH gateway on Ripple

    Any reason we're choosing a for profit corporation whose software was designed for banks over Stellar's platform which is nonprofit and focused more on individuals? What about openledger?

    Seeking Members for a E-Commerce DAO Proposal

    Lack of customer service. Mods on OB only exist for arbitration purposes since I last checked. And from a retailers perspective having no one to contact is a deal breaker. The current model is to have a sale director who works with businesses to get them a public wallet address that's used for...

    Pre-Proposal: Alt36 + Dash Payment Platform

    In regards to this offer we should explore alternative partners for such a venture, namely Bitpay, who is already deeply entrenched in the virtual currency payment space. They already have software and integrations for bitcoin inplace, which is a core part of dash, as well as having partnerships...

    Seeking Members for a E-Commerce DAO Proposal

    You make a good point. Marketing and customer acquisition is one of the largest barriers to entry for any market. You need incentives for the buyer and seller. When you look at the major online sellers Amazon, Walmart and Ebay you see markets that are focused on furthering itself - they want...

    How do you check if the Originator of a Proposal is a Con-artist?

    A bank or Paypal transfer is probably the one of the simpler ways I can think of to verify someone legally exists. An intermediary could be used for businesses, likely Transferwise. Coinbase also has merchant options once you verify your business if you wanted to verify through a bitcoin send.

    Should the Core Team start "saving" for massive market campaign?

    Sounds like a good idea. Ether seems to be the stable bet at this time for storing funds in crypto. I was looking into some options for storage and asked the guys over at Ledger about their hardware wallet multisig, here's their reply: https://tether.to/ also has multisig support I havn't...

    Dash Charity Fund

    All moot points considering coinbase exists: [Coinbase Insurance | 2 Factor Auth Login | 5 Multi-sig Withdraw + Email Notification | Phone Send Confirmation] Then you have a short exchange window before the funds are in the foundation's bank account. And no paper work needed for <$5,000. Vs Do...

    (Pre Proposal) DASH Farm Hawaii

    Dash Charity Fund

    I mean it's reasons like this the dash nonprofit was formed. I see people playing with the words centralized and decentralized to suit their rhetoric when the core problem is individual fallibility and asking ourselves how we remove that as a factor. When you get down to it everything is...

    Sounds like the wrong circles. The blockchain is for trustless transactions i.e. not having transactions that require the trust of the person receiving them.

    Oh, I was referring to real charities or nonprofits like the Ethereum Foundation.

    Dash Charity Fund

    A good starting point for something like this would be to determine which charities are of interest to Dash and have a project team assigned to teaching them about dash and helping them to be able to accept it.

    Dash Charity Fund

    Having a public dash address for donations to the Dash Foundation is the best option in my opinion. Then we're able to donate to others through the foundation by adding a statement of how the funds are to be used.

    Dash Charity Fund

    Thought of another way, this would be equivalent to passing a philanthropic proposal every month with dash funds. Only we can't dictate the amount and the charity will probably be set. When considering philanthropic efforts we should consider them on a proposal basis. At this time I believe we...

    Reduction Of Proposal Fee To 0.1 Dash (Proposal)

    .1 is too low at this time due to reasons mentioned. 1.5 seems reasonable - $95 at the current rate, or $42-$190 considering a 100% change in margin.

    Prevent Scams Pre-Proposal: Have Dash Donated to Foundation v1

    The most recent promising find: https://twitter.com/duosearch. We should reach out to the OpenBazaar guys and learn more to decide if we could help make this happen. For now, I think the best revision of the opening proposal would be to keep the idea of a main dash multisig wallet for the...

    Prevent Scams Pre-Proposal: Have Dash Donated to Foundation v1

    What are known as permanent restrictions on donations and the foundation's bylaws still allow us to set conditions to control the funding. Decentralized or otherwise you always need trust and as the system stands there's no accountability after the funds are sent. The current governance...

    Prevent Scams Pre-Proposal: Have Dash Donated to Foundation v1

    I'm not asking for money, just delivering the discussion so let's focus on it. The 35 dash is a rough estimate for the several work hours it may take to reimburse whoever takes up the project - preferably a known foundation member. I'll start asking around for someone to volunteer to repost the...

    I don't know the relationship structure of the community yet so I will abstain from saying.

    Legal Battle Dash Stash

    Thinking on it further, one of the big reasons big companies won't touch crypto is because of the ambiguity surrounding the security ruling. Looking into getting an official ruling on dash from the SEC or Futures Trading Commission would be more fruitful than asking firms and lawyers.

    We could use a second legal opinion in lieu of the latest opinion from Cooley which didn't provide much substance.
