    Here is the 90 Day CEO report card for Patrick and other interesting news

    This is how I see it: 1. Be the Trust Protector 2. Actively engage in actions that devastate company management (the company that you should protect as a TP) 3. Propose yourself for CEO after management resignations 4. Define your own goals 5. Fail to accomplish the goals (even the simplest one...

    I would like some more info why Chris Hough left.

    No, this isn't true @TheNetworkIsBiggerThanYou . He didn't perform well on tasks assigned to him.

    Here is the 90 Day CEO report card for Patrick and other interesting news

    No reason to argue more on the topic - it would be PR only. Not meeting objectives is not meeting objectives. And it doesn’t matter who didn’t meet them - the company still has a problem with lack of leadership and unreliable delivery.

    Here is the 90 Day CEO report card for Patrick and other interesting news

    Yes, Ryan did not perform well last year. But why actually are you writing about Ryan @solarguy? Ryan has nothing to do with with this thread and Patrick’s goals and results. It didn’t. He joined board meetings much earlier (on my and Ryan’s request), when he was a member of the previous TP...

    Here is the 90 Day CEO report card for Patrick and other interesting news

    Thanks @solarguy for sharing this. I find it a little strange response. Probably I have quite different definition of "excellent stuff". What I read is: - He responds on Discord. That is cool, even if not everyone is on Discord, it is good to know there is a place to contact him. - He declared...

    Dash, nor any of its subcomponents, can allow Censorship of any kind.

    yep. No one blames Oracle for storing e.g child porn or criminal data in Oracle-produced databases. And they don’t care about the content - they are in storage business and produce databases. If a criminal robs a bank and escapes in aFord car, with a trunk filled with bags of banknotes, no one...

    Have a look at the transition CEO ScoreCard for Patrick Quinn. He lays out his 4 big goals for the first 90 days.

    I don't think there is a need to wait for the "official report". You would see the results, if there were any.

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

    This discussion is becoming pointless exchange of posts produced by ego-maniacs. Let's be productive.

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

    You are mixing many things and understand it as a roadmap. Roadmap is not a technical design document like (from your example) dimension of the screws. Roadmap is not a vulnerability report, with a description of vulnerabilities or problems. Roadmap is a visual representation of the strategy...

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

    @virgile Why in a world would anyone need NDA to disclose any roadmap? Roadmap is not a legally binding document in any way, and disclosing it could not do any harm to anyone. This isn’t a contract, there is no financial, personal nor any other type of confidential data involved In technical...

    People are not using Dash - question is why? And what can we do to improve adoption?

    Yes, that + stop being obsessed about developing another technical feature that no one cares about. FIrst of all you need to understand why Dash is being removed/delisted. From my experience there are two major factors driving this: 1. Regulations - and tbh we can do sh** about it - regulators...

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

    The situation you are in is not a coincidence and did not happen over the weekend. We were having conversations like this when I was still in the company. You have chosen to listen only to yourself and to not accept any feedback other than enthusiastic. Here you have multiple voices expressing...

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

    @QuantumExplorer I wouldn’t be so sure about the fame and glory - not in this situation. I hope you don’t work for fame and glory anyway (because most likely you won’t experience any in this industry). I don’t suggest you have any incentive to delay the release. I rather think you fear...

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

    Sam, this is ridiculous way of thinking in the software industry. You can imagine probably 10 more scenarios when something could go wrong. This is normal and shouldn’t stop any company from building and releasing products. Risks are always in place and they should be simply assessed and...

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

    Why this discussion even takes place? There is no reason to discuss this HIGHLY theoretical matter. There is no platform in place. There is no dapps in place. There is no confirmed problems with the platform performance. There is no data in place, confirming necessity to implement different...

    Have a look at the transition CEO ScoreCard for Patrick Quinn. He lays out his 4 big goals for the first 90 days.

    My perspective after 90+ days. I might be wrong or don't be aware of some outcomes. 1. Is the delivery schedule for Platform clarified? -> No a. Are all complexities, dependencies, gaps, etc. well documented? -> No b. Is an updated delivery schedule, taking into account 1.a above...

    I completely agree. This discussion and presentations are only waste of time and resources. Stop looking for another geeky thing to do. Just release the platform!

    DCG Salary Discussion

    Oh... we have two more "honest investigators", as I can see. Did you notice how "significant" run rate reductions DCG experienced after Ryan's departure or after my resignation? To be honest, I couldn't care less about your insinuations and "conclusions". This type of primitive manipulation...

    DCG Salary Discussion

    No, it is not. Just ask Google about the difference. I am not going to fight with your ignorance and mental troubles. If you still want to demand salaries being disclosed, ask DCG individual contributors to disclose them. This time it is definitely eot.

    I think Dash needs some changes

    No, I don't think the project is doomed. I think there is a clear vision but poorly executed. As I wrote previously - DCG should do whatever necessary to finish the platform MVP development, release it and make sure it works on the mainnet. After that part of the funds should be redirected...

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

    I think this question and change should be parked in backlog for later consideration. In my opinion this is absolutely unnecessary and it would only delay the release due to additional complexity of the network architecture and additional code needed to be developed, tested and maintained. Let's...

    I think Dash needs some changes

    There was a discussion about this basically on monthly basis, during the board meetings. And it was always the same story shared with the board - we are doing better and need 3-6 months. When we have realized that was a mistake, things went too far, price felt down, we went into survival mode...

    Well... I would not say we abandoned the ship - I was on the ship during much worse times and tried hard to work things out. Things went sideways due to a few very unacceptable incidents triggered by some particular individuals and it did not seem to me that Trust Protectors were interested in...

    The answer is always the same - when the time is right (and in the right place). How successful you would be launching a new line of surfing boards in the beginning of winter (and advertise it in eg, Zermatt, Switzerland)?

    I think Dash needs some changes

    @qwizzie , @GrandMasterDash , Thanks for your input and opinion. Despite the fact that I share your opinions, I think we, as a project and community, could not afford ignoring CMC. Mainly for two reasons: CMC is the first place, where majority of crypto investors, users and press go to verify...

    I think Dash needs some changes

    Hey Marine! Somehow I have a hard time to be optimistic, seeing Dash on position #73 on the CMC. I don't find it a proper place for the project. We have never tried postponing the release and it wasn't good in my opinion. It was always rushed to release as soon as possible, with argument that...

    I think it doesn't matter if DCG does it or Dash Marketing Hub does it or they do it together or anyone else does it. What matters more is the right people doing right things - effective, experienced people, who know what they are doing. Having right people is more important than the name of the...
