    Attention Dash Masternode Owners: Please register with the Deterministic Masternode List now

    Excellent! That linux command was what I was after. Thanks so much.

    Attention Dash Masternode Owners: Please register with the Deterministic Masternode List now

    Is there a live version of the DIP3 data available somewhere? Also, though unrelated, how do I reverify the MNO banner for my member name?

    Pre-proposal: Let millions of Chinese investors on Huobi invest Dash

    I agree that this would be great if genuine. You mentioned you are in touch *with them.* Are you satisfied that this is genuinely an accountable activity of the exchange (vs. some isolated guy who works there, but is on his way out looking for his own retirement boost)? Of course, once they have...

    GUI tool for running Masternode with Trezor

    Good to hear. You are right about the securing of crypto. Perhaps I'll give it a run. Have you tried it (or heard of it) with more than one MN? Any added configuration complications?

    GUI tool for running Masternode with Trezor

    Really glad you're doing this, though I admit to not using it just yet as well. I also am waiting until it's a bit more comfortable (fewer surprises) to use.

    Pre-proposal: Airline In-flight media campaign

    Wow. What do you feel it missed that would make it 'proper'? In under 2 minutes (normal commercial time), it concisely showed and explained how Dash was digital cash by being secure, non-controlled, private, instant, and easy. I don't see how it could have covered more ground in that...

    Pre-proposal: Airline In-flight media campaign

    I watched the video, and I think it's very well done! I'd love to see that get wide distribution, if the cost makes sense. This would make even more of a splash after Evolution hits. How do you measure those impressions though (and thus the cost per impression)? Straight number of passengers...

    Open Letter to CEO Ryan Taylor and DASH Stakeholders

    While I don't particularly agree with all the premises here, nor with the specific course of action suggested, certainly marketing, branding, and timeliness are central to market dominance. I haven't observed any disagreement about this anywhere - the debate has only been over the optimal path...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Why? Isn't more information, including informed opinion, better? MN's can sift how they will. The criticism has been over lack of communication, and already they should limit it? I hope they encourage us more, provided they give their reasons so we can evaluate them.

    Proposal: Hiring of Top-level Dash Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)

    You bet...I've been attempting to argue that case! :)

    Proposal: Hiring of Top-level Dash Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)

    What I hear in this statement is what most people supporting this proposal don't seem to be considering: That marketing must be coordinated with the rest of the operation! You can market like crazy, but if you then don't deliver on whatever independent ambitions that CMO communicates, you...

    Proposal: Hiring of Top-level Dash Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)

    OK, but that doesn't really explain why we wouldn't just support the current team doing the hiring of this person such that the CEO (Chief Executor) can do the coordinating functions outlined in so many of the posts above, no? In short, the issue troubling me is not the importance of marketing...

    Proposal: Hiring of Top-level Dash Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)

    I don't understand why we want to hire a CMO *apart* from our existing team. Why do we seem to prefer another 'direct to MNO' executive with potentially an uncoordinated plan? Is this a no-confidence vote in them? Who would we consider responsible for overall results: The CEO, who we think...

    Dash Branding on Race and Acrobatic airplanes (How I'll promote Dash to 200,000 people per month)

    This is a really cool idea overall, and you seem quite credible. Typically, the biggest risk to Dash is an 'all promise, low delivery' situation, but that seems less likely with you. Do you use any printed literature to promote your shows? It would be really great if you would include a Dash...

    Pre-Proposal: Sponsoring new documentary MAINSTREAM by James Jaeger

    I like the idea, especially if Dash gets recognized as the sponsor (and, by extension, solution to the problem).

    Dash Marketplace Live Preproposal Video

    Perhaps, but regardless of his intention, my concern is the demonstrated lack of judgment from one paid by Dash for promotion sponsorship. Is *that* really how we want our promotion funds used? Not a good Dash advocate to me. Effective communications is supposed to be his business, right? Well...

    Pre-Proposal: Alt36 + Dash Payment Platform

    I totally accept their knowledge, business acumen, and growth potential within the industry. This proposal should almost certainly be a good situation for them (and that's good - you want a committed partner). My only concern is the quality of the deal structure and terms regarding Dash's...

    Pre-Proposal: Alt36 + Dash Payment Platform

    Holding of the funds is the easy part. Any escrow agent can do that without responsibility for the terms of the agreement. I'm asking for Dash's hired business developers to share in the review of the deal and offer opinion that the price and terms of the deal are sensible from Dash's...

    Pre-Proposal: Alt36 + Dash Payment Platform

    I too saw this, and agree they are capable. The plain fact is, we ought to have a fiduciary opinion from our hired team advisors, not just a technological one. Nothing tells us that the terms of this deal are sound, and IMO, MNO's cannot get to that themselves. Nothing against ThirtySix...they...

    Pre-Proposal: Alt36 + Dash Payment Platform

    I'm sure I'm the outlier, but having reviewed deals, here are my initial comments. I have great regard for the possibilities here, so no disrespect intended to ThirtySix or its business proposal. The proposal indeed sounds very compelling as written. I also don't question the genuineness of...

    Pre-Proposal for Proposal Fee Rebates

    Regarding my comment, the current proposal fee is only refunded for proposal approval (via the requested funding amount). If the proposal is rejected by 1 vote, no rebate. Some are protesting that this is too high a barrier and discussing alternatives like lowering the fee. Rather than...

    Pre-Proposal for Proposal Fee Rebates

    I could support this if we make that rebate subject to some MN vote result metric, say rebate only IF the 'Yes' votes exceed the 'No' votes. If the mn's had to spend time dealing with and evaluating a proposal that didn't meet a baseline criteria, then insufficient value was achieved to justify...

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    Good choice, IMO. Just 'changing the number' doesn't really solve anything...it just covers over the intended issue for some period while introducing new risks as you mention. Better to either: 1 - Leave the fee alone and build some sort of sponsorship/crowdfunding mechanism to enable voluntary...

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

    I'd prefer this to just permissively spending it on weak proposals just so we can say we didn't 'let it burn.' We'd still need to know those funds are being stewarded well, however.

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    I'd love to see this solution developed. It is much more of a 'Free Market' solution than just lowering the fee since it allows any idea to get supported based upon its merit, even to the point of crowd-sponsoring the fee (if people are indeed interested)!

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    By this argument, we shouldn't have any fee at all, and therefore MN time and effort (and Dash scarcity) has zero value. Of course, there are other laws of Free Markets that should be considered like effective resource allocation. Too narrow a statement, IMO.

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    Aren't proposals supposed to *accomplish* something, not just act like fee-based opinion polls? Why propose to keep something that is currently in place? Should we also then propose to keep InstantSend? I'm missing your point, perhaps, but I do note that this risk of becoming just a fee-based...

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    I like your idea of possibly allowing sponsorship of the fee to help someone where the existing fee is truly the limiting factor and they are reasonably not able to afford it. I would personally pay for a fee in such a case, AFTER it's been vetted successfully in the free areas. Another...

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    This highlights our difference: I don't see unallocated budget as huge problem, and the zero proposals (not exactly accurate) is not because lots of great ideas from the forums and slacks can't seem to afford the fee. If we act like we want ideas bad enough, we'll get bad ideas. In the mean...

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    I'm not in favor of this. It seems like a very arbitrary network change that only sets up the need for more arbitrary network changes later as Dash price adjusts. I've still not heard an answer to the very valid point that we already have a variety of TOTALLY FREE channels for people to float...

    Reduction in proposal fee to 1 Dash (Pre-Proposal)

    This would be better than just lowering. The constant trade off is between being 'too high' and stifling otherwise good proposals, and being 'too low' and getting lots of spam. We also make it harder to directly process that Many without hiring 'administrator/gatekeepers.' That too presents its...

    Pre-Proposal: DASH FOR SUPER NEWBIES BLOG + YOUTUBE MARKET TESTING

    Treasury Balance and Cashflows

    Very helpful. Especially this, "They will provide 1,946.33 DASH of 7,449.80 DASH total available budget." How about the Dash inflow each month? If I understood correctly, that is to be 10% of Dash created, but I'm unclear what the production algorithm is. This really is a nice governance...
