    Dash Core Group Q2 2019 Summary Call - Thursday, 8 August 2019

    I have been curious about chainlocks as it relates to network capacity? Is there any gain whatsoever? I had been thinking that if funds were chainlocked and also immediately respendable (under 4 inputs I understand) that effectively a queue is created and that in a time of full blocks...

    Hey @tungfa, I know we're trying to stay positive, but on the outside chance the forum would like to give an award for "dumbest thread", I would like to nominate this one.

    4 Days left in the big push to get Dash on NPR. It takes 6-10 minutes. Costs nothing.

    There is no such thing as bad publicity. I have made an effort along these lines, as you suggested and I appreciate your appeals to the community.

    Tired of the low valuation for Dash? Then do something and help us get on NPR.

    Is DASH a "Security" as defined by SEC?

    On the other hand, a security may just be their euphemism for anything they want to screw with/impede. I had read an article elsewhere recently in which an attorney named Jake Chervinsky described the SEC's strategy in this matter as "guidance by enforcement". Essentially, the SEC smashes...

    @fedpyramid: this is probably small consolation, but you're not alone. I have made a couple of missteps myself and lost some nice chunks of crypto. I have tried to think about it in terms of my OVERALL BENEFIT from getting into crypto as opposed to these unfortunate incidents. Additionally...

    Let's talk about Tether

    Do you think some of that reckoning is priced in already though? Exchanges aside, Tether's banks split and their auditors split. Now, the .gov cronies are on the case. USDT is getting someone's attention! But, if Tether can offer/counterfeit a cryptographic dollar haven't they "hacked" the...

    A thought I had recently, What are the chances the incumbents (G20) came out of Buenos Aires after being told, "Look, if you're horsing around with this crypto crap...SELL IT" just so they could get an idea how big it's getting without them in it?
  13. slamdunk is so so boring compared to

    I think is under control of Roger Ver/Bitcoin Cash. This ambiguity isn't the clearest messaging by my way of thinking. In this area I think DASH is more on point even if the surfaces are slightly fractured.

    Dash Core Group Q4 2017 Summary Call

    I have been unable to deny a growing skepticism of DASH. The Q4 conference call was especially disappointing to me for many of the reasons written about here. As a result, and for the first time, I sold some DASH. I still want DASH to succeed, but I'm entertaining the idea that it's not what...

    Core Wallet Private Send Bug? PrivateSend "completion" mixing stuck

    I'm not sure if this is related or not, but I decided it was close enough that I would post here. It seems like since I moved to I have had issues with mixing, similar to the OP. In my case I'm stuck with the dreaded "PrivateSend is idle". This is with mixing set at 8 DASH/4 rounds...

    Telegram ICO , is it game over for other cryptos ?

    Furthermore, my gut tells me permissionless mining is so fundamental to the original Bitcoin design that Telegram, Ripple, Facebook et al face a chicken/egg problem. When addressing that problem they will/have chosen permissioned arrangements. At that point, aren't they just issuing fancy...

    Telegram ICO , is it game over for other cryptos ?

    I think this is known as "talking [our] book" It's not hard to find the contingent of bloviators that talk their book these days, cryptosphere or otherwise. These jokers are everywhere and some of them have the mainstream microphone. I sincerely hope DASH is aiming at a rock solid software...

    Is Evolution and Dash compromised by the banking relations

    I guess the only mitigation I could come up with is thorough vetting of the DASH business partners...if any vetting leads back to Bitfinex/Tether, I would hope DASH could manage to steer clear. But, if the problem is pervasive, then I concede there may not be much that can be done.

    Is Evolution and Dash compromised by the banking relations

    If tether is fraudulent, as I believe it is, then it will cease to function. My belief is the authorities will raid the tether operation. That will adversely effect the entire cryptosphere, DASH included. I think it would be difficult to determine just how those dominoes will fall. I only...

    why are we so obsessed about US , when crypto only works in developing countries

    If Mastercard or Visa are actively preventing us from getting a Dash backed debit card, sue them?

    deepstate is definitely up to something, I was using the UQUID card for several months and suddenly, it broke due to "banking relationships". They can sanction this and sanction that, eventually they will be alone in their walled garden.

    question about mined coins/mixing

    This may have been addressed already, but... My gut tells me it doesn't make any sense to mix coins received as mining reward. These are virgin coins and so there is no history to track, therefore no reason to mix. Am I correct? If I am incorrect, why?

    Why as less people annoyed\outraged at proposals that appear to scam Dash?

    Doesn't this tie into the idea of a reputation economy? I think the darknet (there are others/ as well) is out in front on this again. When you have completed your obligations, it's customary for the buyer to upvote you, boosting your reputation. When you screw around, the opposite...

    Folks - Please be careful what you wish for in the Bitcoin wars

    But, doesn't DASH Core sit on top of some version of Bitcoin Core (possibly 0.13.2)? Maybe DASH is agnostic to Bitcoin's fork in the short term and can defer which code to implement later, when the dust settles? The thing that has escaped me is, why is DASH down in Bitcoin terms? If...
