    Is DASH a "Security" as defined by SEC?

    Just going to post this here, some additional clarity and guidance regarding the security issue as the SEC has ruled that Ethereum is not a security, and offered guidance to other projects to help make the determination, and also is offering to work with projects to determine a status. “In...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    Exactly, the reality is there are a wealth of options. One idea that our team has been kicking around is this, it's the simplest and also the most straightforward. Since we already require a paying membership to vote, the dash could simply be distributed with each vote. Members will vote for the...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    It would be a good experiment indeed though creating a paywall typically causes usage to decline sharply. When was the last time you put your credit card number into a paywalled news site who's link you clicked not realizing it was paywalled? And if it is optional then we are relying on...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    Excellent question. All artists today expect to be paid each time their song is played. For example, Spotify currently pays less than one cent per stream which has prompted sustained outcries from musicians for nearly a decade. For example, sometimes don't get paid at all, one artist got paid...

    Pre-Proposal: pay musicians around the world 10 cents in Dash per stream

    Hello Dash Community, Feedbands is a five year old music streaming service. On June 4-6 we tested a feature where we paid our artists 10 cents in Dash every time a song of theirs was streamed. During that time, we were able to: fix some bugs (not all streams were paying) test out some fraud...

    What's Going on at Dash?

    I agree completely. What makes the most sense to me is either using the treasury system, or an offshoot of it that doesn't utilize any of the budget, to allow people to submit goals and MNOs to vote on their adoption. Goals could even have pre-proposal discussions :)

    What's Going on at Dash?

    I've spent a lot of time thinking about this and I very strongly agree with @jeffh. It is necessary that we have a go-to place to send people when they want to learn about dash which is of course dash.org -yet for it to be an effective destination it needs to have up to date and accurate...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    But it doesn't technically settle instantly, it's more of an instant guarantee. The recipient of an instantsend isn't in control of the funds until the standard block confirmations come in, although it's guaranteed they are there. We made this mistake at our recent event, thinking everyone we...

    I will say though, we have achieved something pretty neat on reddit. I think we are delivering on something close to 100% of the page loads at r/cryptocurrency or r/bitcoin I genuinely would like to know if someone can get the page to load without a Dash ad.

    Pre-proposal: Dash Core Group fiat guarantee losses reimbursement

    From our perspective, we certainly were not anticipating the market to crash the way it did. By pegging our escrow payout to USD, we truly felt at the time that would help the network hedge against appreciation, allowing us to still receive the amount we were asking for even if the value of the...

    Buy hundreds of everyday items in the US, pay in Dash, free 2-day shipping on everything.

    Argon can you point me to a single other place someone in the US can purchase a toothbrush using Dash? If we are going to increase transactions, people need ways to continually earn and then people need ways to spend. We need to create an entire economy. Earning + Spending = Adoption. We built...

    Hey Dash Nation, Just wanted to let you all know of my weekend project, DashFair.com. Took about two days and $100 to set up, it uses the instacart model where anytime someone buys something, a member of our staff goes and purchases it and ships it out. The prices are a little high right now...

    Why does DASH follow bitcoin into a bear market?

    It's because Dash does not yet have a mature transaction ecosystem. The best thing everyone can do to break Dash's tether to Bitcoin is to transact. We all must transact as much as possible using Dash to break free.

    Dashinformer update - merchant inquiry

    One thought I had was to have a digital device on hand like an ipad that runs a dash wallet. The merchant can use existing POS and then accept Dash via the wallet similar to cash. That solves the integration hurdle, but then what to do about getting people to come in the door paying with Dash...

    We see your point and feel it is perfectly valid. Yes, people need ways to get and spend dash more than anything else right now. We hear that loud and clear.

    It was called "Entrecard" and it worked like this: Every blogger would place a 125x125 widget on their blog. This ad space was the "product" everyone contributed to the network.

    I can understand your concern and everyone here is thinking very carefully about adoption. Right now, adoption is difficult because there are few, if any closed transaction loops. When I invented a digital currency in 2007 a few years before Bitcoin, we had closed loops from the moment we...
