    Atomic Swaps for Dash

    I was also thinking about the outside dependencies, but there might be some solutions. For example, let's say Dash anchored to the three largest chains. The algo could default to using Dash's own chain unless all three of the other chains were in agreement and differed from Dash's chain. This...

    Atomic Swaps for Dash

    @GrandMasterDash There is another thing that I think would help with the store of value part of the equation - cross chain anchoring. One feature of Bitcoin is that their chain is the most secure because it's backed by the most hashpower. However, Factom is using a unique idea called cross...

    Atomic Swaps for Dash

    Yes, I've seen DFN write about this topic, but I haven't seen anything from Dash core on it. To the best of my knowledge there's nothing on the road map either. I'd like to see a plan for improvements beyond Evolution and scaling issues.

    Bulletproofs : can it can implemented as addition to Dash current privacy ?

    I love what I've read about bulletproofs. The biggest problem with Monero's RingCT is the huge transaction size, but this greatly reduces that problem. I know the current team is very busy working on Evolution, but with the large budget we have I'd like to see additional hires/teams working on...

    Atomic Swaps for Dash

    If you haven't yet read John Pfeffer's excellent paper An Institutiional Investor's Take on Cryptoassets I highly suggest you do. I don't necessarily agree with everyting 100%, but it is an excellent and thought provoking look at the crypto space and the different use cases like store of value...

    Pre-proposal: Dash conference - Venezuela

    Thanks for the explanation. Can you explain what the primary reason is for Venezuelans to have an Uphold account if they can't buy dollars/cryptos with Bolivars? Does Uphold make it easier to spend dollars deposited from a US bank account?

    Pre-proposal: Dash conference - Venezuela

    According to Google trends Uphold is gaining in popularity in Venezuela. Can anyone comment on how popular Uphold is there? As of today, Uphold now supports Dash. Is this a good solution to obtain Dash in Venezuela?

    Pre-proposal: Let millions of Chinese investors on Huobi invest Dash

    Should require InstantSend to be enabled. If multiple exchanges have it enabled it could allow Dash to be moved instantly from one exchange to another which would improve efficiency of cross-exchange arbitrage trading. Kraken already has it enabled. If Dash becomes the fastest and cheapest...

    We need more million-dollar proposals

    Large pay per click ad campaign like @dashdisciple proposed fits this bill. Can easily be increased if funds are available & decreased if needed for other priorities.

    30 reasons cryptocurrency will kick ass of banks

    I agree that crypto will change the banking world and with most of your points. However, banks won't go away. There will always be borrowers who want to borrow and savers who want to earn interest. Banks do a good job of providing this service and will continue to do so even if crypto takes...

    Cryptocurrency Documentary- what would you like to see

    I think this could be a good angle for a documentary as well. It would make sense to focus on some of bitcoin's problems and how other coins like Dash are working to resolve them. For example: Bitcoin's governance problems leading to forks - Dash Masternode voting Bitcoin's slow transactions...

    Poll: Should we anoint demo a "Resident Troll" badge?

    A troll badge is a type of ad hominem attack. Debate ideas, not people or labels. If the discourse runs afoul of community guidelines I think there are already sanctions for that.

    PRE Proposal: 36 + Dash ATM

    If I understand this proposal the idea is to get the dispensary/merchants out of the cash business by having customers make their purchases in Dash. Have the merchants been interviewed (Voice of Customer) to see what they will do with the Dash? If they lack access to normal banking channels...

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    @tungfa , I had a chat with @coingun last night. He said the landing page is no problem. Email is trickier for non core employees, but he's looking into it.

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    OK - one more update before I submit this. Escrow - @coingun has formed a Canadian company Green Candle, Inc. to handle escrows for Dash treasury payments. I've added this to the proposal. There is a 10 Dash escrow fee which I took out of my end on the project management side. The escrow...

    Browser Payment API - Compatible with Dash DAPI?

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    I'm working on an escrow solution with the goal of submitting for this budget cycle. I originally had the contest reward in Dash because it makes things a bit simpler to administer and the prize pot would potentially grow as Dash appreciates. However, there was concern that the marketing...

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    I had a discussion about this paper with @moocowmoo on Monday. The core team is still reviewing the paper, but the attack vector affects edge cases and would not affect this contest as it is planned.

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    Thanks for the enthusiasm @ampp ! I plan to sort this out quickly so it can be put in this budget cycle. I have also recently thought about a nominal fee for escrow service. Perhaps 1% for non-insured escrow is reasonable?

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    I recently discovered that superblocks can't pay out to multi-sig addresses. I need to go old school and find a trusted community member to act as escrow for my proposal.

    Possibility of z snark privacy on Dash in the future?

    It's not just the XMR clowns. Even among general Bitcoiners when someone asks for a private transaction solution the preference is for Monero first, ZCash second and Dash mentioned barely or not at all. I've seen this several times in threads on r/bitcoin, r/btc and r/bitcoinmarkets which is...

    Dash Doesn't Need to Reinvent the Wheel with Advertising - Online Search Beats it All

    I'd like to see a comment from the Core team regarding this. There has been discussion about hiring an ad agency that might address this need, but it's been very quiet for several weeks. Are they waiting for London conference? Do they disagree with marketing before Evolution? Too busy on...

    Time to Demonstrate Dash Governance Again?

    I think what we are discussing is that the optimum number of masternodes needed to serve the network may be different than the number of people that we want to vote on governance issues. We might consider an additional class of staking that only votes.

    Pre-proposal: DASH PrivateSend De-Anonymization Contest

    I still need 4 multisigs for this proposal. I can be one as PO. Need 3 more. @UdjinM6 , @kot , @mastermined , can you serve as the other 3? If not, can you suggest an alternate? Also, @kot can I use a dash.org email address for this contest? Perhaps I should just put that in the proposal...

    Time to Demonstrate Dash Governance Again?

    Another controversial topic we should consider is the amount of shares to own a Masternode. Here is how I see that one: Leave it at 1,000 Dash arguments: Don't want new/small/unsophisticated investors making poor governance decistions/votes Don't want to increase the operating (server) costs...

    Time to Demonstrate Dash Governance Again?

    Sure, a block size increase would work. However, the second time would be less newsworthy than the first. Is there something of more importance we could tackle? If it's not at least a little controversial, then it's not really a governance issue...
