    Dash进入中国市场的重要一步!

    Maybe google should have said. Why do you use "Dash" and not 达世币?

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    Thank you @p5yc071c I guess I did break the constitution on my tenth day of appointment. I did accounting in USD and DASH. I'm sure the DIF can get around to repealing that requirement at some point. I didn't intend to be a rebel by doing accounting in Dash for the Dash Investment Foundation...

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    So now I want the idea to be out here, because I think it's a good one. Currently mixing is using decimal units, because, well ... humans. Mixing would have trouble using binary because `2**-9` is not a valid unit of Dash. However since 10 = 2*5 we can use this fact. Currently, mixing uses...

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    An update for @MoKa The DIF did discuss the mixing idea yesterday. To get that up and running would be quite a challenge. We are currently reevaluating how DIF Dash is stored. We are researching using a multisig solution. To institute mixing that would add to complication. During the...

    Thanks for the feedback! @MoKa your mixing suggestion was also mentioned by another supervisor and Is on our next agenda for discussion. @p5yc071c We are currently reviewing foundational documents. Much of our discussion has been about goals and scope for this year. Once these are set then...

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    Thanks for suggesting I review the conversation on Dash central. Well @Geert, I guess we agree on the issue of the DIF running masternodes: https://blog.tappmath.com/posts/the-wisdom-of-the-masternodes/

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    Thanks for the feedback! We have had an initial transitional meeting. I expect to have some minutes of this meeting out this week. We will certainly take your comments into account @Geert. What's taking shape is deviating from my blog post a bit. Trying to work out all the details takes...

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    This past year the DIF received many proposals for funding. Relying only on the Dash DAO to fund projects might limit the scope of what the DIF can accomplish. Therefore I propose that the DIF facilitate matching projects that need funding with people that want to fund projects. That way the...

    Dash Blockchain Users and MimbleWimble

    BTC had some probelms with clogging and slow transactions. Dash has done the work necessary to make sure that this doesn't happen. They have also done the research to make sure they keep ahead of the curve.

    Hello: I'm Darren Tapp (汤德润) a DIF Supervisor.

    Dear Dash Forum, I'm establishing this thread to foster public discussion. Over the next weeks I plan to present and propose (not treasury, just discussion) * an operating procedure which will allow the DIF to provide more value to the DAO * Set a clear goal and a minimal condition to measure...

    Dash release 0.14.0.5

    It's always a good idea to check the hash of your download and to check the signature on the file with the hashes.

    [Pre-proposal]Governance question adopting Roberts Rules influenced procedure

    That's not a problem with the post I made that is a more general problem. Currently this proposal is out there https://www.dashcentral.org/p/fernando-cmo If No means that the masternodes do not act then it would be clear that a no vote would not remove the CMO. Also if No votes mean the...

    [Pre-proposal]Governance question adopting Roberts Rules influenced procedure

    So this is a very simple idea. The idea is that if any proposal gets more no votes than yes votes, that vote is always interpreted as the MNOs did not speak/act. That way, if there is a rather malformed proposal, a masternode owner can with a clear conscious vote no and not worry about any...

    Question about SPV and Chainlocks

    I assume that when a BLS signature is made of a block in DIP 008 it's actually the block header that is signed. As such, it should be possible to create a hardened SPV wallet that checks the chainlock as well as the proof of work. Is there currently an existing implementation of a hardened SPV...

    Bitcoin Cash (BCH) activated a hard fork today. After the hard fork there was over an hour where blocks did not confirm transactions. This was caused by a bug in the ABC implementation that was fixed by this change in the code...

    Dash Blockchain Users and MimbleWimble

    I imagine there is a need to keep the eye on the prize. For Dash, that prize is evolution. Any other work would take time away from the advertised goal. MimbleWimble is in a very early, very experimental stage. I'll keep an eye on it.

    Pre-proposal: Dash conference - Venezuela

    It may be a silly idea, but maybe you could feed people at the conference. I mean free to attendees. Heck, even bring some rice with "Provided by Dash, digital currency" on it with the conference date, time, and location to advertise before hand. Probably best to import...

    Inconsistency in Masternode - Upate to 0.12.0.58 asap !

    If master blocks were required to broadcast the hash of one of the three last blocks and only nodes on the longest chain got the reward on the longest chain then they might care.

    Inconsistency in Masternode - Upate to 0.12.0.58 asap !

    I noticed that the masternode payment enforcement number changed. Does that mean that enforcement is back on? I thought a screen shot here, but I'm having some serious upload problems. Anyway: 0.12.0.58: 83.8% 0.12.0.59: 0.5%

    What is more profitable? A master node or lend the Poloniex?

    If you hold DASH on your local machine then there is a chance that machine gets hacked and the attacker could steal the Dash. I think this risk is low, but to be safe don't click on shady links, get phished etc.

    What is more profitable? A master node or lend the Poloniex?

    @rustycase The reason people trade on margin is what is called leverage. Let's say I have 1 Bitcoin. I could: 1) no margin: buy ~41 dash and hold it out right 2) margin: borrow another bitcoin and buy 82 dash. If dash then starts trading at 40 dash per bitcoin I could: 1) sell 41 dash...

    What is more profitable? A master node or lend the Poloniex?

    I do not recomend using margin, especially with volatile cryptocurrencies. Going long Dash on Margin would mean borrowing bitcoin and buying dash. Going short Dash would mean borrowing bitcoin and buying dash. on the exchange side, there is no debt or borrowing.

    What is more profitable? A master node or lend the Poloniex?

    @jhoskins So yes, lending DASH on Poloniex will result in someone selling so there would be an immediate (small) downward push on the price. However, at some point in the future the borrower will need to buy back the dash, this will undo the downward push. Also the lender will earn interest...

    Please help me understand the code base v.0.12.1

    It seems that dash 12.1 is being based off of the code for bitcoin 12.1. As you may know bitcoin 12.0 integrated some features such as RBF. I want to know if DASH 0.12.1 also integrates RBF or libsecp256k1. I don't see anything about these in dash road map about these. I personally think the...
