    Does/Should DASH have a mascot?

    One of the most successful companies in the world is Disney. The secret to their success is how they've been able to manage leveraging the characters they create to make them into marketing machines. They make more money from merchandising their characters than they do selling movies. Dash...

    Will Dash be switching to bech32 addresses?

    Since the cancellation of 2x, I'm looking to get rid of all my BTC. So far the two currencies I'm liking the most is BCH and DASH. The one thing that bothers me about BCH is that the devs seem really keen on switching to bech32 addresses. I feel this sets a very bad precedent for the currency...

    Pre-proposal: Dash retail location

    I agree the idea is not economically viable. But the point is not to be economically viable, thats why the treasury subsidies operation costs. I would bet 99% of treasury proposals are not economically viable. The purpose of this endeavor is not to make me a millionaire, the point is to help...

    Pre-proposal: Dash retail location

    A Dash bank is not at all what I'm proposing. Its more like a zero fee exchange, and the store also provides support and training. Lets say a coffee shop wants to accept dash. A customer walks into the coffee store and order a coffee and tries to pay with dash, but there is a problem with the...

    Pre-proposal: Dash retail location

    Here is the plan: 1. Rent storefront 2. Buy large blue "Dash" sign and hang it out front. 3. Furnish the inside of retail space like a bank. 4. Employ 6 or 7 Full time staff. Said staff's job is to essentially be bank tellers. So basically like a bank or a cash cashing place, but for dash...

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    @dashly, the problem I have with pegging the value to silver is that there are no crypto -> silver markets that I know of from where to pull the price from. Whatever currency the fee is denominated in, it needs to have two properties: 1. It have a stable price 2. It have a lot of volume and be...

    Pre-proposal: Blockchain on a SD card service

    It will be a very tiny market at first. Since the blockchan is only 3 GB in size today, there is not much need today for such a service. The service will take off once the amount of time it takes to download the entire blockchain takes as long as it takes to send an SD card through the mail. On...

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    I only "believe" in fiat because I have to pay my rent, elecricity, water bill, groceries, etc in fiat. When the day comes that USD hyperinflates, then such an index price will not be needed anymore. If USD hyperinflates, it'll be many years or even decades from now anyways. Most likely in the...

    Pre-proposal: Blockchain on a SD card service

    Possible, yes, but not easy. Some business will sneer at not being able to use their dash wallet until a multi-day download has to complete. It's much more attractive to just send off for a disk to come in the mail, then plug it in and you are ready to go. Dash has to compete with other coins...

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    My solution to this problem is to fix the proposal fee to a fiat amount. Say $50. The next problem is how does the protocol enforce an exchange rate? You could institute an official "dash exchange rate" by taking a vote from master node owners to select the official exchanges whose current...

    Pre-proposal: Blockchain on a SD card service

    Here is how this service will work: If you want to run your own full node, but don't want to wait for the 8GB blockchain to download, you can: 1. Visit the "dash on an SD card" website 2. Fill out a form, requesting an SD card to be mailed to you that contains the entire dash blockchain stored...

    Parse the Dash blockchain in python

    https://github.com/priestc/python-altcoin-blockchain-parser I found this project called "python-bitcoin-blockchain-parser", and made some modifications to make it work with dash. The result is python-altcoin-blockchain-parser! It supports a few other altcoins as well.

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    Here is the proposal: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7TEcUIK5FrQX1J0eWhvTC1ydXM/view?usp=sharing Is there anything that needs changing to make it more likely to pass?

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    Nice, these have been added: https://github.com/priestc/moneywagon/commit/6bfd4d11dcf3e065d4bdb6529c3f44a2b0040b73 Multiexplorer should now work when pushing a dash tx. I just tried pushing a TX through masternodes.io and it worked. The weird thing about insight.dash.siampm.com is that it...

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    I'm definitely using POST. Here is the code: https://github.com/priestc/moneywagon/blob/master/moneywagon/services.py#L1207 This was working perfectly 6 months ago, so something had to have changed between then and now. By the way, this is only problm because there is only one service defined...

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    That error is coming from a bitpay insight instance that was modified to work on dash: https://github.com/UdjinM6/insight-api-dash It appears you are the person who made these modifications. I assume you are the person who also runs http://insight.dash.siampm.com? Do you know why the error is...

    Are you using Safari? There is a bug in bitcore-mnemonic that only effects Safari. I just tried registering a new account on Chrome and it worked.

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    Not so much "ignoring" but rather "not gotten to yet". I have been focusing my efforts on getting the base BTC functionality working, as that work applies to other coins forked from BTC as well. If dash pays me, I'll be glad to add "instant send" and "private send" to multiexplorer. Adding dash...

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    @akhavr "Blockchain kernel" was a bit of terminology I made up to describe what moneywagon does. Peter Rizun invited me to give a talk at one of his conferences where I explained hat Blockchain Kernel is all about. For some reason they never published the video, but you can read the slides here...

    Pre-proposal: Pythonic language Dash implementation

    I saw Evan Duffield's presentation at the Dash Open House, and in that presentation he said there needs to be a "more simplistic, easier to understand implementation of dash". This describes exactly my project moneywagon, which you can see here: https://github.com/priestc/moneywagon I am...

    Looking for DASH supply table

    I'v been doing more research on this... I made this list of block rewards and block times: https://gist.github.com/priestc/ac2cc1e5f997bed80fb64868596467d0 It seems that the first 4000 blocks or so have a reward of 500, and were all mined the first day. The next 6000 blocks were mined over...

    Looking for DASH supply table

    What block did that rule go into effect? I assume early on, shortly after the "instamine"? According to this document: https://dashpay.atlassian.net/wiki/display/OC/Dash+Instamine+Issue+Clarification from gnesis + 10 hours on, the block reward seems to be about 12,000 dash mined per hour, how...

    Looking for DASH supply table

    That link says "7.1% decrease in the number of coins generated per year". Can I get more details? How is this decrease triggered? According to my math, at 2.5 minute blocks, 210240 blocks happen in one year. Is the 1.7% decrease triggered every 210240 blocks?

    Looking for DASH supply table

    Is there a similar table for Dash? I need to know how many dash exists over time. I understand there was an "instamine", but what about how many coins are created with each block?
