    Privacy features implemented as of now

    The denominations are 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01, and 0.001. The v13 release introduced the 0.001 denomination - the others were already existing. And yes since each wallet client needs to send its part of the mixing transaction to the masternode, the masternode facilitating the mixing request would be...

    Looks like MasterNodes and Miners are taking a stand...

    I think there's something wonky though always with the last data point on that chart, it's like the data points on the 1-hour before that are smoothed over with larger samples but the last one is always spiking up or down every time you refresh.

    Looks like MasterNodes and Miners are taking a stand...

    I think it's random variation due to the low sample size of the 1-hour time window. +/- 30% swings are normal when there are only 24 blocks to look at. Here it is 2 hours later

    PrivateSend variations/ideas

    The one idea I have for privatesend is to randomize the number of rounds (with a minimum) Knowing that all the privatesend inputs in a transaction have been mixed the same number of rounds is an unnecessary piece of information that people analyzing the blockchain don't need to have at their...

    Collateralized mining, revisited...

    I do think the incentive to buy 1000 dash because of the masternode ROI is an illusion. Why buy a mn for 6% when the market cap of dash would need to go up by more than 6% in the same time period in order to come out ahead (if it doesn't then your collateral will be worth less than it was when...

    Collateralized mining, revisited...

    I'm challenging the idea that a 12% "ROI" or a 50% or 5000% ROI would be any better than our current 6%. It doesn't help to be rewarded with more coins if the coins are going to be worth less. In my opinion the cumulative value of the network (the market cap) is independent of the block reward...

    51% Wallet Claims

    InstantSend provides the equivalent security of 24 normal confirmations, but even having 24 confirmations does not protect against 51% PoW attacks ( a 51% attacker could start mining 100 blocks ago, and when they finally catch up on the proof of work then the whole original chain after that...

    Collateralized mining, revisited...

    What people need to realize about this is that if the "ROI" was 30% or 200% or 900% it doesn't actually make a difference. It's paid for with inflation.

    LLMQs are not until 0.14 and I believe they are a prerequisite for ChainLocks.

    Smart Reach Partnership Proposal - Pre proposal

    Oh that is way smaller than I thought you were going to ask, which changes my thought on whether this might be possible. Sounds more similar to the sponsorship we did a while ago with the Daily Decrypt. Definitely consider DashBoost as I would not recommend risking the 5 dash fee for a 10-15...

    So basically Dash is doing a better job at increasing its exposure in Venezuela, than Bitcoin or other cryptos. And dash can acquire new users and can even spread through people who do not even necessarily have to be cryptocurrency experts. Is this supposed to be bad news?

    Intuition, Opinions, Reasonable Assumption Vs Speculation?

    I would be alarmed too if the way you describe it is what is actually happening, but that just isn't the case. People are allowed to be critical of Dash, the core team or other proposal owners all the time. The times that we've actually needed to remove content are few and far between and are...

    Intuition, Opinions, Reasonable Assumption Vs Speculation?

    Personally I'm not as interested in whether people feel offended that they are being held to a particular standard here. Also whether or not readers of the forum are stupid is irrelevant here. What matters to me is the actual effect of what happens when certain behaviors are allowed. And in my...

    UPDATED Pre-Proposal: Dash + Alt Thirty Six Sponsorship Marketing 2019

    For me, text format is way easier to quote or refer back to, and makes it faster and easier to analyze. I wouldn't make it a requirement but as a MNO I appreciate when proposal owners are able to present their value proposition succinctly in text format.

    It is possible to still have empathy for someone while at the same time realizing that there is no solution at the protocol-level that would be acceptable to remedy this. It is very regrettable, but there are many others who have also lost significant amounts of Dash to hackers in the past, and...

    Have observed the #1 biggest problem with budget proposals could be

    I think it's a nice idea to give submitters the ability to lower their ask, within certain limits (as in, it would have to be at least X days before the voting cycle ends, and they can only do it X number of times) I also like automatically refunding the fee (so that we don't keep wasting all...

    The governance system in Dash is great for making funding decisions and for some forward-looking decisions, but rolling back confirmed transactions or blacklisting certain addresses is beyond its capabilities at the moment (in my opinion, for good reason. It would be quite challenging to have...

    Pay to name Evolution Concept

    I could be wrong, but I don't think DeepBlue was referring to the OP. :D I think camo has some good points but also think the jury is still out on this until we actually see how it is intended to be used by merchants and consumers. I can't imagine a POS where someone has to type in a...

    Dash Core Group Q2 2018 Summary Call - 10 August 2018

    @kot I'm somewhat surprised to hear what I feel is a more ideological or visceral response to @DeepBlue's suggestion, than a practical one. As @DeepBlue stated, the purpose of this kind of software is a productivity tool, not something that a manager is supposed to spend all their time watching...

    Dash Core Group Q2 2018 Summary Call - 10 August 2018

    Question for Ryan or Glenn - The recent precedent has been for the core team salaries to be lumped into one proposal, and then particular initiatives such as special marketing campaigns get their own proposal. Although this means MNs can choose not to fund certain special projects, the core...

    Dash v12.3 Release Announcement - available July 3rd

    However- it is true that if you combine your final anonymized coins and the dust from the create denominations, then you've just botched things up. But in order to do this you would need to send a regular transaction, not a PrivateSend transaction - because the dust is never in your PrivateSend...

    Dash v12.3 Release Announcement - available July 3rd

    @camosoul There is no change returned to you when you send a PrivateSend transaction, *ever*. If you try to send a transaction that does not break up perfectly into the denominations, what happens is the entire amount that is leftover is included in the transaction fee and there is no change...

    Dash Core Group Legal Structure Details

    Thanks for the update, this has been a long time coming. It is also a groundbreaking achievement, so congrats all around! I am curious is there a formal mechanism to identify which is the correct set of masternodes as beneficiaries, in the event of a hardfork?

    Is a reboot recommended when OOM killer eats your dashd?

    Sometimes the host provider needs to reboot the node due to scheduled maintenance or because of some other problem -- usually those are fast enough to have dashd recover. Full outages are more rare but they do happen sometimes even to some of the most reliable services like AWS, those ones tend...

    Is a reboot recommended when OOM killer eats your dashd?

    I have always used a script that simply restarts dashd without reboot and have almost never had problems. The most common reasons for irrecoverable dashd crashes for me have been (1) the hosting provider (VPS) having a problem, or (2) insufficient SWAP memory or insufficient disk space --...

    Economic Considerations.

    It is a bit old, but this interview with Ryan does shed some light on the issue. About the "ROI" compared to the S&P, I don't think that's the right way to look at it. 3% vs. 15% return denominated in crypto doesn't make much of a difference when the volatility of the coin is likely to dwarf...

    Creating a Venezuela DAO to create the First DASH Nation

    I believe Evan's usage of the term in that context is incorrect. I would argue that organizations which are funded in this manner are neither decentralized nor autonomous. Had an interesting discussion about this on the discord a while back. "Sub-DAO" is closer, but only if it means...

    How would you bring Dash to a small, poor country?

    Getfreedash was de-funded for many other reasons, not because anyone is afraid of success (why would you even think that?) Airdrops or giving away free dash is certainly one way to try going about it, though.
  38. TroyDASH Pre-Proposal

    While I would vote for this, with the market being the way it is right now I would advise not to roll in unrelated expenses/projects, and also not to expand in any way right now that would increase costs over what you are doing already. I think the budget is likely to be even more over-requested...
