    Should Platform run on all nodes or should Platform run only on High Performance nodes ?

    @vazaki3 , don't be silly. If you are running a node of basically any blockchain, you likely already are hosting data related to porn/WikiLeaks/etc and have been for years.

    Should Platform run on all nodes or should Platform run only on High Performance nodes ?

    With regard to @virgile 's and @QuantumExplorer's comments about having to choose either A) low fees, or B) network-wide distributed storage--is that perhaps a false dilemma if we consider than we can (and should) subsidize the storage costs? In other words, can't Platform storage be a "loss...

    Should Platform run on all nodes or should Platform run only on High Performance nodes ?

    What has stood out to me most in this discussion is the comment section on DCG's most recent funding proposal. In it is discussed the possibility of masternodes/supermasternodes having the ability to select which kinds of Platform content they will and will not host. This was my first time...

    What is proof-of-service?

    In researching this question, I'm quite surprised to say that Google has only shown me two results that have "proof of service" in their titles: this and this. So, really, what is it? And how does it differ from PoS and/or PoW? And, most importantly, why does it matter to Dash? Thanks.

    New DCG Interim CEO: Patrick Quinn

    Glad there is some forward motion here. Congratulations. Though I do agree with @GrandMasterDash that to prevent an obvious conflict of interest -- doesn't matter if the role is voluntary or temporary -- Patrick should resign as Trust Protector. A resignation would not be likely to make any...

    Dash Core Group Q1 2020 Summary Call - Thursday, 23 April 2020

    Dash Core Group Q1 2020 Summary Call - Thursday, 23 April 2020

    To cut down on the network's annual legal expenses, could the Trust absorb the functions of the DIF, or the DIF absorb the functions of the Trust? Why or why not?

    Dash Core Group Q1 2020 Summary Call - Thursday, 23 April 2020

    What are the risks and benefits of leaving the ability to disable the superblock with three keyholders (as is currently the case), versus transferring that power to the network as a whole?

    Proposal: Core Team Public Relations (July)

    In addition, for what it's worth, I suspect that Dash may benefit from transitioning to in-house marketing and PR. It's most convenient to attempt to outsource these needs -- after all, outside PR and marketing companies are already set up. They claim to have indispensable industry...

    Proposal: Core Team Public Relations (July)

    Hi, @Critical Input. I'd just like to answer your 5th question, as it pertains to me. My short-lived PR efforts were with a different company -- one unrelated to Wachsman PR and located on the other side of the country (Wachsman is in New York, the firm I hired is in Los Angeles). Actually...

    Question regarding jurisdiction in which Core Group, Inc. is planning to pay tax

    Question regarding jurisdiction in which Core Group, Inc. is planning to pay tax

    Regarding Glenn Austin's recent statement that the Dash Core Group intends to request funding for the payment of "state and federal" tax, I realize that I'm confused regarding where DCG is currently registered. MY GUESS is that the New Zealand/Switzerland trust thing is not yet executed, and so...

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

    @Bertrand256, the proposal is finally up on DashCentral here. Thank you for your patience. @fernando, I have edited the DashCentral proposal's "How will we know if the ads are successful?" section to reflect your input. I look forward to developing metrics via your direct guidance. Thank you.

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

    Not too much can backfire when you're already unpopular. :) Regarding the reverse psychology (or self-deprecating) marketing technique, you may care to check out just how many mega-brands have used it successfully over the years when they were in a situation like ours. I'm talking Lenovo...

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

    I believe the message "Blockchain Payments That Send Instantly," unfortunately, does not get the point across. Why? ALL blockchain payments broadcast instantly. So is a broadcast a send? Is a send a broadcast? We cannot afford for this type of ambiguity to exist in our messaging. At this time...

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

    Remember that marketing is not about what you, @Daedalifts, want to see -- you're already a customer! A customer so engaged that you're spending your weekend writing on an obscure internet forum about the product you love so much. Marketing is for those who aren't yet customers. The purpose of...

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    The O&M logo says "Hi, we're a company, and we've got a little icon next to our name to prove it." The T&P logo says "There's a new way to pay, and it's called Dash." Dash is not a company. What's more, the T&P logo has a potential Unicode "D" symbol baked right in, which both preserves the...

    Thanks so much for the great demo. Two questions from me (one of which was repeated elsewhere): 1. If someone wanted to pay me and I gave them my username, would I first have to accept a contact request from them before they're able to pay me? 2. (repeated question) Is there any reason for...
