    InstantSend / PrivateSend

    Quick question. I decided to use privatesend for the first time. Just to see how it worked, and to fund a mobile wallet so I can use Bitcart.io. I wanted to privatesend 0.5 DASH to my mobile wallet. First I sent 0.02 DASH as a test. I clicked through some dialogues. It worked instantly (I'm...

    Dash "stock split"

    I don't get this...is you command of English poor? Did I choose my words poorly? What did you believe I was referring to with 'Poor stupid people' ? Stupid poor people, rather than 'unfortunate (poor) stupid people'? It appears, somewhat ironically, that you are setting up a straw man by...

    Dash "stock split"

    Its one way of ordering a society, I guess...but not one I would want to live in. How about "Poor stupid people, who can't understand through no fault of their own. I, who can understand, will help them to become productive contributors to society through distributing my wisdom amongst them."...

    Dash "stock split"

    I guess we'll find out now with Corion, which purports to be doing exactly what I proposed... " Built on Ethereum Classic, the CORION stable-price token eliminates the guesswork that comes with fluctuating prices. Its algorithm enables special automated inflation-deflation control, assuring the...

    Dash "stock split"

    "Further, as noted previously, to make this evidence valid and convincing, the design and selection protocol of the user experience survey would have to be designed in full view of the masternode community to make certain it is not biased (either way) and really does answer the question in a...

    Dash "stock split"

    The trouble with this is who are you going to survey and what questions are you going to ask them? Do you ask Crypto users who will respond with "Crypto FTW!" or do you ask the other 99% of society who will respond with "Crypto...what...?"

    Dash "stock split"

    Thinking about this, perhaps a better idea would be just to call the USD value of a wallet 'DASH$' equivalent and have people spend DASH$ rather than the core Dash value of a coin. People buying on exchanges would get DASH$ 100 when spending 100 USD, Evolution subscriptions could be denominated...

    Dash "stock split"

    The psychology behind the initials argument is correct, but it doesn't go far enough. I will posit that if DASH doesn't make a change as described below another coin will, and that will actually become the mass adopted digital cash. (I don't know if or how this would work technically but) For...

    POLL - Defining the ISO 3-letter standard currency code for DASH

    As I think about this more, I think you are wrong ;-) I run payments for a network of websites using multiple currencies (maybe 6-7 base currencies) and multiple global payment methods (20+) and I know that if you asked me to integrate DASH into our payments systems without a 3-letter currency...

    Great! Can you provide evidence for the company you have formed? Or a link to the registrar of companies entry for the Ukraine that corresponds to your business entity?

    POLL - Defining the ISO 3-letter standard currency code for DASH

    I agree to some extend, but you need to fit in with current financial systems configurations by having a 3-letter currency code... It would be good to start using a de facto currency code, despite official recognition, as it appears other Cyptos do this...and I know from experience it will be...

    POLL - Defining the ISO 3-letter standard currency code for DASH

    Pop! As @MangledBlue states above, if you do the research, the Official ISO issuing organisation has decided that ; Chairman of ISO/TC 68/SC7 Patrice Hertzog said in 2015: "The new standard states that only applications from central banks or other government authorities will be processed, as...

    POLL - Defining the ISO 3-letter standard currency code for DASH

    I like your suggestion of XTA and I would add it to the poll...but I don't know how to edit it now :confused: If I had to make a comment though, XTA does seem at once a bit confrontational, and also a bit presumptuous to assign to DASH when I guess other currencies might also claim those...

    POLL - Defining the ISO 3-letter standard currency code for DASH

    All currencies need to conform to the ISO 4217 for 3-letter currency codes. This allows compatibility with current standards in use for computerised accounting sytems The first letter is reserved for the country that the currency belongs to - so USD, CAD, GBP, etc. But X is reserved for...

    Pre-proposal: business integration into retail sector

    I would also ask if you have already formed the business entity that will hold the bank accounts that will be used to pay the merchants the fiat balances that result from their acceptance of DASH at the POS terminals? And that you have passed the due diligence that is required by a bank when...

    Its great that you plan to comply with the directive, but how exactly. I work in a company of 400 people who is spending a lot of time and funds on outside resources in order to comply with the directive. How many staff will you employ to comply with the necessary KYC element of the directive?

    No, MNO's allow their voting rights to be delegated to others better prepared and motivated in spending the time to evaluate proposals. Though you probably got that from my other thread comment.

    4400+ MN only about 1500 bother to vote.

    I guess the Hashtag idea is just another way of putting the category idea of @Biltong. Same idea, I think.

    DASH lacking representation at 'Payments' conferences

    I was browsing through the agenda for Money 20/20 Europe (as you do) and I noticed that Ripple has a speaker listed for their "C-level perspectives on tomorrow’s payments landscape " talk. No DASH representatives...and this is where DASH will fall behind. DASH needs representations at industry...

    You are of course, correct. But this is a rational argument. Government regulations and laws aren't driven by rationality, they are driven by their ability to keep those in power, in power. Try your rational argument in front of the judge as he is about to pass sentence...

    @Biltong Look at my post here I think that the Evaluator system that you are investigating could maybe morph and be incorporated into a system of delegated voting along those sort of lines? I literally just had that idea a second ago and haven't processed it yet, so maybe there are a lot of...

    4400+ MN only about 1500 bother to vote.

    This is a democracy problem rather than a Crypto problem. It is hard to solve. One idea is that; Voters (MNO's) can choose to vote themselves or can delegate their vote to another entity (Lets call them Expert Evaluators, EE's...its just a name and doesn't imply expertise) that has the power...

    @Biltong The goal after all is not to discourage proposals, or to disparage those that have put the time and effort into making them. The goal, I believe, is to filter the proposals through a layer of reality check to the benefit of the Masternodes voting, and the proposers putting their...

    Hi Dmitry, I am sorry to say but in business if you don't have a contract you have nothing. I speak to many payment providers who are pitching their new payments systems to me and I really like some of them, and give positive feedback, but that doesn't mean I am willing to sign a contract...

    I like your proposal but I will suggest you change the title of your post to 'a perfect venue for DASH' rather than 'the' . Just because I also think that https://www.money2020europe.com/ , and https://www.payexpo.com/europe are also perfect venues to market DASH ;)
