    Pre-Proposal: The Dash Dollar

    I improved the explanation on how it works with new examples. Follow the same link to the new version of the PDF. Check the "Issuance of the Dash Treasury bonds".

    Pre-Proposal: The Dash Dollar

    Request for proposal in order to create a stable currency. If you vote 'yes'; then, you request the core team to create a stable currency. If you vote 'no'; then, you think it's not necessary. If you vote 'abstain'; then, you don't know...

    Digital Fiat Currency

    The price can converge to $1.00 by the continuous settlement method. But, not exactly $1.00.

    Can Dash provide a stable value coin?

    No, not like Tether. Tether and this other solution in Ethereum, both, require a third-party risk. Check the following example of the bitUSD. Replace all the "BitShares" by "Dash". The masternodes could provide the quotation of DASH.

    Can Dash provide a stable value coin?

    I propose the Dash community to provide a stable value coin, supposedly DashUSD. Otherwise, the merchants have to convert their payments to the local currency immediately for the reason of risk management. They just can't accept their business crashing together with the market price. I'm afraid...

    Conflicting Network Status. Should I restart?

    I've got the same conflict of information. The masternode is running fine while the wallet says: NEW_START_REQUIRED. 1) Close the wallet. 2) Go to the directory ".dashcore" of your wallet in the client machine. 3) Rename the file mncache.dat to mncache.dat.old. 4) Run the wallet. The wallet...

    Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    Why don't we increase the block size to 20Mb immediately? This is a rhetorical question. People know in the subconscious level that if a block of this size is mined right now, it must be a flood attack. Then, the network is kept below its full potential as a kind of protection against flood...

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    Yes. I have posted in the tech forum as well. Let's wait for a response.

    Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    The model allows large full blocks. It prevents garbage inside the blocks. I'm struggling with the title yet.

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    When the nodes accept a cheap transaction that is mostly paid by the inflation, not the fees. Then, every holder of the coin is paying the cost generated by the user of that cheap transaction. It's not fair, even if that transaction is valid. Therefore, I think it is necessary to filter cheap...

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    The network capacity is being paid by the inflation, the fees are not being enough to replace the inflation. The fees can be increased in the future to keep that premise true, ok. But, this is brute force. A model can avoid the problem while keeping the fees low.

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    I've made some changes to the document according to the feedback. 1) Changed the title: "Protecting the Network Against Large Blocks". 2) Explanation: "The block size will vary between the minimum and the maximum capacity of the network...". 3) Explanation: "The enemy can buy just a small...

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    You might have read only the title. I don't blame you, it's my communication mistake. I must fix the title, sorry. The dynamic part of the block size is about decreasing, not increasing the block size. Exactly to avoid the damage of the network when somebody is pushing 1Gb block every 2.5...

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    The demand is unlimited. but, the resources are limited. Scarcity is considered as 'the basic economic problem', check the link for reference. For example: With current block reward of 1.8 Dashs per week, the increase of the block size cannot increase the cost of ownership to more than that...

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    The economic incentives of the current solution is vulnerable. The enemy can overload the cost of the system to make the ownership of a masternode becomes not profitable. Technically, the system can continue to run, but it will not be economically viable in the long term. My solution holds the...

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    The focus of this proposal is the defense of the network against the enemies. We take the assumption that there are enemies out there, and the enemies may have massive amount of resources. Some enemies haven’t attacked yet; but, we should be prepared in advance.

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    Abstract. The block size is analyzed under the perspective of a deliberate attack against the network. We talk about the naive proposals that do not consider a deliberate attack. We argue for an economic model that calculates the block size dynamically in order to mitigate the attacks.

    Pre-proposal: Protecting the Network Against Flood Attack

    I have designed an economic model that calculates the block size dynamically in order to mitigate the attacks against the network. I intend to submit the proposal to the vote of the masternodes. If the proposal is approved, it does not mean that it will be implemented. It means that the DAO...
