    Update on Major Exchange? Today Marks "Two Weeks"

    Could we possibly get an update on the major exchange integration? Daniel made this post https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/new-major-exchange-update.13971 on March 28, so today marks the end of the "two weeks." Technically he said "two weeks or so" but it'd be great to find out how this is...

    Bitcoin's "network effect" is NOT insurmountable

    Just replied to a post on /r/BitcoinMarkets. Food for thought: When was the last time anybody you knew went to a store and was able to pull out their phone and pay with bitcoin? When was the last time you or anybody you know shopped at a *major* online retailer and paid in bitcoin? Bitcoin is...

    Proposal: Partial Proposal Fee Reimbursement

    The proposal fee in 12.1 was originally slated to be reduced to 0.33 DASH. Unfortunately, this change was reversed and the fee remains 5 DASH. At the present exchange rate, creating a proposal costs about $110. Hello all! Most of you know me, but for those who don't, I'm David Dinkins. I do...

    Request for Electrum Masternode Guide

    Hello all! I'm wanting to be prepared to move my masternode collateral to my Trezor right away after 12.1 launches. Can somebody post a guide for setting up a masternode in 12.1 using Electrum/Trezor? Thanks in advance!

    Why Does Kraken Hate Dash?

    The common assumption is that Dash is not traded on Kraken (or other major exchanges such as Bitfinex) because of our low volume. We do have a historically low trading volume, so I could understand this logic. But that's not why Kraken refuses to list us. Let me demonstrate. Kraken trades...

    Proposal: Fee Reimbursement

    Hello all! Most of you know me, but for those who don't, I'm David Dinkins. I do writing/editing work as part of the Core Team, and I've been a part of DASH since May 2014. I'm well known in the community, and anybody on Core Team can vouch for me. Now that the "who" part is done, let's get to...

    Budget System and Governance

    Over the last few days, I've been thinking about the budget system, its relative importance, and its effect on governance. I've edited a post I made on BCT a few days ago and using those ideas as the core of this post. TroyDASH made an excellent post...

    Can you sue a DAO?

    All the usual caveats, this is just one guy's opinion, I don't know him so it could be wrong, blah blah. But here's a take on DAOs from somebody who says he's a lawyer: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-sue-dao-stephen-palley Basically if anybody wanted to sue the Dash DAO, a court would...

    Proposal: Core Team Xtra Fixed (Don't Burn Unspent Dash!)

    (This is the corrected proposal. My first proposal was for the wrong amount. This one is correct.) Evan and the rest of the Core Team do an amazing job and get paid very little each month. In December 2015, due to the budget not being finalized, no budget funds were disbursed. Nonetheless, Evan...

    A Very Angry Masternode Owner?

    At the same time Transform-PR picked up 600 "no" votes, several other core proposals (formerly uncontroversial ones) received 300-400 additional "no" votes: 1) Salary for DASH core team 2) Improvement of DASH public awareness 3) Dash.org domain name 4) Dash-Lamassu ATM Integration I can...

    Problems with Budget System / Possible Solutions

    It's amazing to see how our budget system has developed since Evan originally proposed the idea. Initially only the Core Team submitted proposals, all of which passed without much controversy or fanfare. Recently, however, we have seen individual community members make proposals and have them...

    Using the Budget System to Incentivize P2Pool Mining?

    Credit to noobtrader on BCT who had the original idea. Cross-posting here in case it gets buried by trolls: This is a hell of a good question! Is this technically feasible? If it *can* be done from a technical point-of-view, then consider that a 5% bonus to blocks mined by P2Pool would cost...

    The Future of Dash: Compiled from Evan's Posts

    Crossposted from a post I made on BCT: Evan has recently hinted at some earth shattering new things that are coming to Dash. In his own words: "Let's just say we're changing our tagline from 'Reinventing cryptographic currency' to 'Reinventing Money.'" The last time he got so excited about...

    Cost of Enforcement Being Turned Off During Major Updates

    ***If mods think this post is beneficial, maybe they could sticky it somewhere?*** Every time we have a major update and eduffield turns off enforcement, people start complaining vigorously about missed masternode payments. I thought I would do some math to show that people really aren't...

    Hypothetical: Bitcoin Collapses, What Happens to DASH?

    Everyone here is aware of the debate in the Bitcoin community over whether, and how, to increase the block size. The controversy has been boiling under the surface for two years now, but has recently become especially bitter. The primary dev of Bitcoin Core, Gavin, has split from the project and...

    Owner of 11% of Dash in Existence

    All: It's come up a few times before on the BCT thread, but it is of course difficult to keep the conversation on a single thread for long, plus all the trolls etc... What are your thoughts on: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/dash/wallet.dws?559582.htm My first thought is that somebody with that...

    Why wouldn't you use Dash?

    I was just thinking to myself "Why wouldn't anyone want to use Dash?" Pretty much everything I can think of that people might want in a digital currency, we already have (Notably, all the advantages are just as applicable to your average Joe as they are to crypto enthusiasts): Dash is private...

    When to expect Dash 0.12.0.x?

    Evan made an excellent post a little over a week ago explaining his plans for the next version of Dash. Github shows a great deal of work having been done ( https://github.com/dashpay/dash/commits/v0.12.0.x ) but nothing in the last eight days. UdjinM6 eduffield When can we expect this...

    Two-Pronged Approach to Adoption

    It occurred to me that people like to do things that have been proven to work in the past rather than venturing out in new directions. I think the same holds true of many efforts to increase the adoption level of Dash. We tend to think that we need to follow the same path as Bitcoin, but that...

    Way to find "winning" masternode?

    My MNs are set to "donate" 100% of their income to a separate address that I control in order to make things much easier. I have noticed that there is one unintended consequence...I have no clue which masternode is generating the payments that I'm receiving at this "donation" address. Likewise...

    Changing Consensus Mechanism From Proof of Work to Proof of Service

    eduffield UdjinM6 fernando All: I know this has been brought up before but I've never seen a definitive answer from a dev as to why this would or would not be feasible. With the implementation of pose scoring, it seems like we should be able to move to a Proof of Service model where...

    Mystery Payments of Approx 0.1 DRK

    Can y'all take a look at this address and tell me what's going on? I'm getting MULTIPLE 0.1 DRK payments per day, in addition to my normal masternode payments: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/drk/address.dws?XtzrcCsxS3eA3LejArCt7F7BdWC33MR9ry.htm

    Possible Darkcoin Press Release (RC5, Open Source, Instant Transactions, Kristov Code Review)

    All, please suggest possible edits for the below "press release." If we do a good job with it, we can take some of the work off the hands of the dev team and possibly get this information out to an array of media outlets. The goal is NOT to hype--the goal is to explain the actual features that...

    Everything appears done right but MN still doesn't work...

    So I've run MNs before this update and had no problem. For some reason I had really bad luck updating this go round, so I deleted all my darkcoin stuff on the remote server and started fresh. I went to the local and generated a new masternodeprivkey, updated my local darkcoin.conf and updated my...

    masternode genkey command doesn't do anything

    When I go to the darkcoin-qt console and type: masternode genkey I get "masternode list|count|current|votes> passphrase (code -1)" This is like the first step on every guide I've read, and it doesn't work at all. What's wrong? P.S. Just in case I tried: "masternode genkey" I get "Method not...
