    DASH's first killer app?

    That would be a good idea for a new crypto. You could probably launch it and get some followers, because a lot of people have trouble with the idea of deflationary currencies. You're committed to your cause, and rightfully so, but surely you realize that a currency that's currently got a $300+...

    Pretty scared

    I'm all about risk/reward, and definitely commend those who can find an edge when it comes to wealth management. But pinning your entire life savings on a bootstrapped coding project of which you have questionable understanding is borderline insanity. Please don't take this as a personal attack...

    DASH WILL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL if it does not solve this Problem

    You have a cup of water. It has 3.01 x 10^23 water molecules in it. But now let's define it by its total number of oxygen atoms, 2 x molecules. You still have the same cup of water. You're just defining smaller and smaller portions of the same total amount.

    Pretty scared

    This is a monumental risk. Monumental.

    Dash Core Team Q4 2016 Summary Call

    The ponzi scheme concern has been a common worry from people ever since deflationary currencies came into existence (Bitcoin, et. al.), and I don't blame these people at all. But let's define ponzi scheme: "A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation where the operator, an individual or...

    Could you elaborate on this? It's very interesting to me. @Cofresí

    DASH Car - Pre-Pre-Proprosal

    Way too many resources are being put into advertising right now. 100% of time/effort/funding should be going toward perfecting the underlying technology. Advertising ideas like this would best be best re-visited after Evolution has been deployed and put to use by the public.

    Implications of the Two-Tier Model regarding Centralization

    So the novelty of the Dash two-tier model (underlying PoW with MN PoS sitting on top) provides an interesting new layer that seems to add a bunch of functionality to the blockchain. Detractors of Dash seem to cling to the fact that it is very centralized. According to the Dash whitepaper, the...

    Price Discussion Thread

    Just to be clear, I'm neither predicting nor advocating for a financial sector crisis. I just think that such an event would be required for medium-term mass adoption of crypto.

    Price Discussion Thread

    @TanteStefana I agree that it's obvious that Dash is fundamentally better in (nearly) every domain than current competitors. Taking a step back though, when we look back in 10 years, we're going to end up seeing that the entire crypto-verse is grossly undervalued right now. The ENTIRE space has...

    Price Discussion Thread

    I've been trying to find good financial analysis of the recent price spike, but Dash news is pretty much nowhere to be found on the internet besides this small forum. The one thread on bitcointalk is just children screaming "pump and dump" and "scam". I'll just do some back of the envelope...

    New wallet update

    I'm very new here, but just thought I'd chime in by encouraging you to make sure everything is sufficiently backed up before too much software manipulation. Hopefully someone can jump in and help you out.

    Price Discussion Thread

    DASH ~$45 right now. According to coinmarketcap.com, about $200 million were poured into DASH over the last 30 hours on relatively strong volume. It's happened concurrently with the recent BTC and ETH spike, so this is ostensibly a bunch of non-crypto money pouring into the space. Expect...

    NEW MEMBERS: Welcome to Dash! Introduce yourself...

    Hello all, I've been loosely following cryptocurrencies since 2013. No computer/programming background at all, but I try to keep up. Very intrigued by the unique governance system that DASH employs.
