    DIF August ask

    Dear network, The new supervisors have met twice as the newly elected supervisors. We have so much on our plate that we haven't discussed putting up a proposal to the network yet. Part of me is thinking that we should do a supplemental proposal and forgo the ongoing funding proposal...

    Regarding the 5 Dash proposal fee

    I wish to provide some facts and what I think are helpful approaches to a perceived problem. Concern/Problem: The 5 DASH fee for proposals may prevent helpful projects from seeking funding from the network. History: This was brought up quite a while ago. I think Dash was around $500 at...

    Upgraded account?

    I uploaded a pdf and some users are saying they need an upgraded account for them to see the pdf. What exactly does that mean? If I would like anyone to be able to download a pdf I upload, can I upgrade my account? What I ended up doing was uploading the file to my servers, and then linking...

    [Pre-proposal]Governance question adopting Roberts Rules influenced procedure

    So this is a very simple idea. The idea is that if any proposal gets more no votes than yes votes, that vote is always interpreted as the MNOs did not speak/act. That way, if there is a rather malformed proposal, a masternode owner can with a clear conscious vote no and not worry about any...

    Question about SPV and Chainlocks

    I assume that when a BLS signature is made of a block in DIP 008 it's actually the block header that is signed. As such, it should be possible to create a hardened SPV wallet that checks the chainlock as well as the proof of work. Is there currently an existing implementation of a hardened SPV...

    BCH's hard fork today

    Bitcoin Cash (BCH) activated a hard fork today. After the hard fork there was over an hour where blocks did not confirm transactions. This was caused by a bug in the ABC implementation that was fixed by this change in the code...

    Please help me understand the code base v.0.12.1

    It seems that dash 12.1 is being based off of the code for bitcoin 12.1. As you may know bitcoin 12.0 integrated some features such as RBF. I want to know if DASH 0.12.1 also integrates RBF or libsecp256k1. I don't see anything about these in dash road map about these. I personally think the...

    Max Block Size

    In line 54 of the Max Block Size is set to 750,000. I believe the masternodes voted to up this to 2,000,000. This type of change should be rolled out over time. That is a block height could be chosen ( 623,000 around Feb 2017) and...

    Please don't make the mistakes bitcoin is making

    I applaud the developers for doing what they're doing and not implementing the mistakes of bitcoin. I was thinking of this today because Full RBF may be the default in new bitcoin clients. Does anyone know if the 2MB limit for Dash blocks actually is actually in the code of What...

    Concern about distributed Masternodes

    I have a concern about the distributed master nodes. With bitcoin it was organized so that the miners made protocol decisions. What may have been unforeseen is that miners would pool resources and pass the protocol decisions to the pool operator. This makes what was intended to be a...
