    Pre-proposal: Renewable enegy DAO

    TL/DR A renewable energy project intended to address the "cryptocurrency uses too much electricity" complaint. It aims to do this by supplying more power from renewable sources than the total used by Dash, the initial stage is a relatively small hydro installation (around 20 to 100Kva) for a...

    How much mining power is needed?

    Any at all? If Bitcoin had started out with an incentivised network of full nodes then mining may only have been a bootstrap phase, brute force to get things up and running before passing on to... idk, access based security? I think that means everything is passed on to proof of stake so that...

    A totaly stable economic foundation

    Just supposing such a thing was possible, something that meant your savings today would be worth exactly the same in a hundred years time, would there be much demand? I mean, I don't mind the ups and downs of cryptocurrency but it's often pointed to as a hindrance to adoption, is that really...

    Parallelism

    Blockchains, they're great! Someday the whole world will be run on them, they'll bring the kids to school and everything! Ok, the hype gets a bit much sometimes but it's no secret that they can dramatically improve the efficiency of an awful lot of things but that means they'll need an awful lot...

    Question about Bitcoin Unlimited.

    Hadn't really looked at this before and just read an article covering how the block size is decided with it and I don't see any method for reducing sizes mentioned, the block size limit can only be increased with it? And miners make the decision or could clients elect to raise it?

    We're under attack

    Maybe, maybe not but the wider online community has been in a real shitstorm for the last few days and attempts to break apart the community are more or less inevitable at some stage. Make no mistake, Dash is one of the most dangerous projects in the world today. Cryptocurrencies are a real...

    Budget proposal, reserach group.

    Where do budget proposals go? Not sure if general is ok but anyway, just a thought on a kind of sub-proposal type thing, a budget available for research that can be managed and used as needed without creating individual proposals for each case. I'm thinking something like a small committee that...

    Dash, backed by innovation

    This is the biggie for me, the thing that makes a place in the top 5 cryptos well and truly justified and I think it could be capitalised on way more as a means of promoting Dash to a much wider audience. Within this community we know what crypto has to offer but the wider and more general...

    Distributed volatility bot

    Does this belong in speculation? Does anything like this exist? I'd made a volatility bot a few years back and it worked well, it was when speculators where playing havoc with bitcoin but I only ran it monitoring and simulating trades to test, things smoothed out after and I lost interest...

    Decimal places

    I'd been wondering about dasksend and transaction fees appearing high when it needs to break up a denominated amount, could some sort of enforcement when dealing with decimal places reduce this? Like a low fee for up to 3 decimal places but it ramps up fast and puts up a warning when going to 4...

    How would a trust network work?

    Just been wondering about this one from trust as something like a currency point of view.

    Interoperability between chains.

    Imho this is the next major leap with cryptocurrencies, the market within the network. That depends on how things pan out, maybe they could evolve into a single network capable of handling every exchange of everything but I'm guessing parallelism will be essential for scale and the desire for...

    Coinfire, honest journalism?

    Hadn't been following the whole XPY and GAW thing but don't much like the sound of it.
