    V12 Release

    Updated my servers to v45, although one of them crashed twice during the reindex, but weirdly can't get my local wallet (either qt or daemon) to sync past block 278961, tried multiple times. Will retry with v46. (all linux 64) edit: v46 looking better.

    Payday - 18.57724582 - 2 server costs = 16.57724582 / 10 = 1.65772458 per share. Dividends sent to usual addresses. :smile:

    Development Update - June 2, 2015

    The multisig account was not the pork barrel, it was just an additional risk. The pork barrel is alive and well, as any proposal with a single vote could still get into the funding queue if the 10% total budget is otherwise unallocated. There's no minimum approval threshold at all, just more...

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    A group of voters choosing 'No' is not an 'attack' - it's the system working. (Not addressed at you Crowning but...) I have noticed a lot of people cheer the free market, except, curiously enough, when those free market forces in action get in the way of their own agenda. Then suddenly it's a...

    Are you sure about this? Makes the whole thing a complete farce. Welcome to DASH's decentralised governance, where voting "No" doesn't matter! All aboard the gravy train, hurrah. :rolleyes:

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    I don't think it would be 'earmarked' (and thus the block reward modified) in the first place. Not so much a case of never generated as never needed, never taken? At least that's how I read it - Evan was just demonstrating a within-max-budget scenario.

    I'll try commenting out the nays in my masternode.conf, doing a vote-many yea, then reverse the comments and do a vote-many nay.

    That's what I suspected. It's going to be a PITA for guys who manage a lot of other peoples MNs. I suppose they will have to importprivkey each MN to a fresh yea or nay wallet for each proposal voted on, and use a yay- masternode.conf and a nay- masternode.conf unless someone can post a...

    If I manage a bunch of MNs via a single masternode.conf, is there a vote-alias command so owners of particular MNs can instruct me how to place their vote?

    Bitcoin Core Developer Commits to 20MB Block Size by March, 2016

    I'm not sure what you meant exactly by that, but the market currently barely qualifies as pocket change for a single large corporation. And that's where it will stay for BTC. DASH's overlay network allows for much faster and more useful services, with vastly greater tx capacity, but not if it...

    I have solved this problem (in theory :tongue:) with subsetted pure PoService... PoW is and always will be a crap non-scalable non-solution. "But it cost me $$$ burning a gazillion jiggawatts to generate these 1's and 0's! It gives value to the coin!" If only anyone cared, eh?

    The proposed model is very plainly a tax. Forced development of the 'ecosystem' is doomed. Any ecosystem needs to be independently viable without continuous enforced-charity cash injections from the infrastructure providers. Core money funding core development is fine if that's what people...

    Raganius makes a particularly good point that further illustrates the silliness of the 'MN ops are not to be trusted with real decision making power' argument - all the regulars here, on BCT and elsewhere are already, and have always been, putting in real time and real money (same difference) in...

    Somewhat OT but there's a whole lot of very under-utilised MN hardware out there... What about an option for distributed MN cloud backup of your wallet as long as it has a decently complex passphrase and isn't enormous? I'd never keep my main stash online, though this might be irrational of me...

    I don't think I was clear either. :) Removing self-interest from the electorate makes the whole process a sham and will lead to the railroading of useless crap, as the only people who will be bothered to vote are the barrel plunderers. Nothing is really filtered out if there isn't an option...

    It wouldn't go forward: Agreed. And maybe it's better to start with a higher bar and see how that works out before trying anything else. Let me try and lay out how I envision this working in pseudo code. I am not a coder, this is barebones rough draft 0.0.0.1-pre-alpha, try not to laugh too...

    Dash address pubkey with the word inside

    I have proposed before that MNs be identified on the network by a masternodepubkey instead of an IP address, which isn't actually needed for anything. No technical reason why not as it's the same tech that the masternodeprivkey system uses, but Evan seems set on the fixed-IP model. Anyway, OT...

    Personally I'm happy with a higher voting threshold, 40% seemed like a sensible minimum. In the event of a perfectly tied vote I think the default behaviour should be a Not Passed? I don't see a 'No' threshold being needed as surely this would already be taken care of by the participation...

    Dash address pubkey with the word inside

    Up to you, the more vanity characters in the address you want, the exponentially longer it's going to take. eg. 'abcde' is going to need twice as long as 'abcd'

    If the software can use the GPUs then sure, it will should things up - same principle as CPU vs GPU mining. No idea how much by though.

    I don't like the 'bundling' of projects in the example you have given. Maybe I like one aspect but not another? The 'only 1 funded initiative at a time' also seems very restrictive. I think it an be simpler while also being more flexible. eg. Proposer A wants $X to pay to develop feature P...

    I applaud your detective work, I had guessed that half the MNs were owned by about 6 people. Changing the MN DASH requirement will not help the current or future distribution though. The rich will just add more MNs at a proportional rate. It would however cost Mr 806 and Mr 380 (and everyone...

    They should be paid, in the same way that miners and MNs are paid - as they go and upon service provided, not upfront. Given the piss-poor job miners as a whole do of securing the blockchain, with 90% of the lazy sods mining on the same 3 pools, I think 40% to the miners is generous. Blockchain...

    Both the Solarminer and Camosoul variants of the funding proposal can accommodate such requirements.

    This is a false comparison.

    I completely disagree. Mandatory taxation is theft. Whether it's daylight robbery down the barrel of a gun, at threat of being locked in a concrete box, or being told "If you don't like it you can sell your DASH and bugger off," it's theft. Were the US founding fathers (who I'm certain had most...

    Croutonrant #331 - Marketing a waste of time/money currently! Also PoW is an exclusionary dead end!

    It isn't PoStake. Users aren't staking anything, they're contributing a few CPU cycles now and again and getting a little in return. Earnings, not interest, how much DASH you have in your wallet makes no difference. Provide service, get paid, same as MNs. And we'll have to disagree about where...
