    12.1 Testnet Testing Phase Two Ignition

    Happy Monday! We are looking to move onto the next stage of testnet, but we need some active participation from the masternodes operators currently running active testnet daemons in order to test the code we are working on. Our test network is currently about 5% upgraded, we need at least 65%...

    12.1 Testnet Testing Phase Two Ignition

    Nathan imported proposals from 12.0, so now we have a full list of proposals to test with. Let's try voting on all of them, if we can get them all about 10%, we should be able to create a superblock. If you have more than one masternode, uncomment the vote-many line...

    12.1 Testnet Testing Phase Two Ignition

    I suppose I misspoke, I don't mean we should create a bunch of committees now while the network is small. However, we're in the beginning stages of making a very complex and sophisticated software platform for money, if successful it will be of the valuation of a bank. That means we're going to...

    12.1 Testnet Testing Phase Two Ignition

    Small Update I'm going to be leading our testing of the sentinel platform by creating a real world simulation of what we're actually going to use the superblock system for. This basically comes down to needing to ensure that we can process more than 100 proposals that are generated from the...

    August 2016 Development Update

    Hello Everyone! I wanted to take some time to update the community about the state of the project and our current work. As you likely know, I recently returned from the d10e conference, where I met a number of volunteers and enthusiasts from the community. We also established many new industry...

    12.1 Development Update

    Hello Everyone! Internally among the core-team (our core DAO which maintains the software, promotes Dash and executes its day-to-day activities), there’s been a building sense of excitement about the near future, d10e and beyond. Things are going great and we’re building momentum internally...

    May 2016 Monthly Budget Report

    Sorry this is a bit late! The budget was successfully finalized and looks good for our upcoming superblocks. No further action is required. Thanks! -- The May budget cycle is nearly here, so I wanted to once again summarize the core team budget proposals and the current budget based on today’s...

    Darksend Rebranding Discussion

    No I mean, what if we have one implementation of Darksend on Tier 1 and another implementation on Tier 3 using the messaging system? Is the second implementation Lightsend? What do we call that?

    Darksend Rebranding Discussion

    I think we should ditch the names of these altogether. Attributes of currencies shouldn't have names especially when the underlying protocol can change. So it would be appropriate to say Dash supports privacy and instant transaction, but why does the process need a name? I'm sure both Darksend...

    Security Advisory For paper.dash.org

    Yes. paper.dash.org is safe to use now. The repo is safe as well. I've reverted both.

    Security Advisory For paper.dash.org

    You'll need to move the funds still. It's the source of entropy that is the problem, not where you ran it.

    Security Advisory For paper.dash.org

    Hello Everyone, Unfortunately we broke paper.dash.org on January 4th and the seeding process for generating a wallet was insecure since then. There are no known Dash thefts that have taken place because of this (yet), but if you created a wallet using paper.dash.org between January 4th and...

    Prioritization of fiat gateways

    I'm in complete agreement about this point and am working on a process to revamp our governance workflow. I have a lot of change in mind for the network, but I need a few weeks to get ready to present new concept. As usual though, we are all thinking about the same thing... and I believe I have...

    Prioritization of fiat gateways

    Multi-sig Wallet A multi-signature wallet with client side key storage. Designed for white-labelling, the multi-sig wallet serves as the basis for a number of user interfaces, including the exchange. Built using React.js, the wallet will be ready to be transformed from a web app into a native...

    Prioritization of fiat gateways

    Fiat access ramps development will be prioritized by the core team over PR and advertising during the next few months, starting in March. With certain small exceptions like Dash Chinese promotion in tandem with 8BTC. For the next few months we will be focusing in partnerships, integrations and...

    Budget System v2 / Transform PR

    Hello, I’m guessing most of the community is aware that we had a 3-month contract with Transform PR that started last month. This contract was for $6000, denominated in Dash and locked into a rate of $3.38. I believe this contract was going really well and that we were making the correct choice...

    Problems with Budget System / Possible Solutions

    1. This is a really good idea! I like it much better than our catchall idea (catching excess funding using a series of proposals). 2. I was thinking of exacting this as well, although with a couple modifications to stop some possible exploits. Proposals will have no expiration period and a...

    February 2016 Budget Proposal

    It’s that time again, here are the budget proposals for this month. We’ve been working hard to invest resources as efficiently as possible. Budget allocation during Q1 looks like we are finishing up with several important investments we have done like our new dash.org domain among others. It is...

    Say no to three backup servers

    We could also use these other services as a method of storing the non-critical data. I wouldn't be opposed to that.

    Say no to three backup servers

    So there's no DashDrive paper yet, so I definitely understand the concerns that are being raised. Think of DashDrive as having multiple levels of redundancy, for different levels of data according to importance. DashDrive is going to utilize a blockchain itself and each block is going to consist...

    Dash Birthday / Trademark Resolution / Blocksize Limitation

    A couple more points, I wanted to bring over from BitcoinTalk. 1.) The problems with propagation do not pass from the Bitcoin network to the Dash network, due to the high quality second tier infrastructure. We can require specific infrastructure from our masternodes, which will allow for very...

    Dash Birthday / Trademark Resolution / Blocksize Limitation

    We didn't propose an exact fee structure yet, that will determined when the coding begins. It will be enough to stop a sybil/bloat attack and also enough to allow users a very low cost to transact on our network.

    Dash Birthday / Trademark Resolution / Blocksize Limitation

    Mining profitability will remain unaffected. We're not using all of even the 1MB blocks yet and mining profitability is mostly determined by the price of the coin, not really the bandwidth of our network at this point.

    Dash Birthday / Trademark Resolution / Blocksize Limitation

    Hello Everyone! As many of you know January 18th is the birthday of Dash and makes the project two years old. During that time we’ve accomplished an amazing amount as a team and as a community. I would like to congratulate everyone involved and it’s been a very exciting year and we’re super...

    Budget Proposal: The Instantx Soda Machine!

    Unfortanately the "591-soda-machine" was a little bit too big for the next super block and will not be paid. Due to this I've went ahead and submitted a new proposal called "590-soda-machine", which will definitely fit in the next budget. For future reference, here's how I figured out out the...
