    Feature-request: Add tx index by default, allow ElectrumX RPC

    Hello, Today a server guy needs to install Linux, then Dash Core node, then configure txindex=1 , then Install ElectrumX to allow any light wallet Electrum users to connect. I would recommend to save the last 2 steps: *. Ship Dash Core software with tx index enabled by default. This is...

    I suggest using hybrid Masternode PoS + PoW mining

    For Dash: vs PoW it is better to build a hybrid PoW+PoS because we could do odd numbered blocks via PoW Mining and even numbered blocks via Masternodes (PoS), increasing defences vs 51% attacks (attacker will need to have both 51% POW + 51% stake to attack Dash... ) I propose to tech Masternodes...

    Vote against 'Core Team Taxes' could put things into jeopardy

    Hello, Just wanted to inform us all that voting against 'Core Team Taxes' could put entire Dash Core team into jeopardy. This is because by law, taxes are payable *before* salaries. And 119 votes against it could make it hard to pass this proposal. Basically Dash Core team could be forced to...

    Suggestion: Mine half blocks via Masternodes

    Since Masternodes already play an important part of the Dash ecosystem, Dash is already defacto PoW/PoW hybrid algorithm, I'd recommend that every 2nd block be mined by Masternodes. Odd blocks by PoW miners; Even blocks to be mined by Masternodes (via PoS). This lead to better security (because...

    Dashvotetracker.com DASH price inaccurate

    It shows me $77, while in reality it is about $71-$72. Why? I think they are linked to the falling TETHER USDT or Bitfinex exchange. It includes a risk premium that their USDT may fall apart. I have explained the risks associated with USDT in my earlier post. The real price of DASH today...

    How private Dash PrivateSend really is ?

    Pre-Proposal: DASH Proposal fee lowered to 1.0 DASH

    Dear Dash Nation ! Sudden spike of Dash-to-U.S.Dollar prices, put many new proposals out of reach for small projects. With regard to the recent maximum USD price of Dash at $120, We think the proposal fee should be reduced to 0.1 Dash. Without this change, We feel that opportunities will be...

    Idea: Rotating Proof-of-Work

    To avoid the possibility of ASIC miners taking over the network, we can design a PoW algo with a difficulty time-bomb, like Ethereum did. Difficulty time bomb, if when block difficulty time is adjusted exponentially, making blocks 100x times slower to produce in a 2 years time. Giving enough...

    PoS/PoW hybrid -- Masternode Mining

    Hi All, I think that in addition to "collateralized mining", we can change an algorithm to produce even blocks by Masternoe staking (PoS) odd blocks by Miners. 1. This will balance the protocol upgrade power between more people (not only miners) 2. In case if miners are mis-configured to...

    On why we should give 0.1 DASH proposals a chance

    Dear Dash Nation! Many have voted to lower the new proposal fee to 0.1, but many others remain skeptical. And I understand. One hacker with 100 DASH can flood the network with a 1000 proposals easily. But in my opinion the risk is justified. Even if worst case scenario will happen we will...

    Dear Dash Nation. Just recently we have donated money to two start-ups: To Charlie Shrem Dash card and to TenX VISA card. I think we should upgrade our Dash business model. Right now, when we vote with Masternodes, we can fund start-ups, but we donate money, we don't invest money. We have zero...

    [pre-proposal] Reduce proposals from 5 DASH to 1 DASH.

    I think that $500 dollars worth of Dash (5 Dash at $100) means that small projects will get priced out of the market. I think reducing the price is worth discussion. I think that a smaller sum like $50 or $100 is enough to prevent spam, but make small proposals to be allowed to be put to vote...

    Is Firewall for Dash Masternode even needed ?

    The only difference (as far as I know) between Firewalled Masternode and Non-Firewalled MN, is that the Linux kernel will DROP packets in FW case or simply send REJECT ICMP message for non-FW Nodes. In both cases I have only 2 ports OPEN: TCP/22 (SSH) and TCP/9999 (Dash).
