    What's this Trust Protector thing all about? Let's meet them and chat about Dash stuff.

    Hello All I have decided to put my name forward as a candidate for a Trust Protector position. I was bitten by the crypto bug in 2013 and bought my first Bitcoin way back then. I’ve followed Dash pretty much from the beginning when it re-branded from X-coin to Darkcoin. I liked what Evan was...

    Dash Core Group Q4 2018 Summary Call - 7 February 2019

    Hi @strophy I'm a bit late to the party but I'd like to ask for an update on BitGo if we can squeeze that in please? DCG asked for MNO's to support a $500K proposal for BitGo to integrate Dash, it's all seems to have gone quiet since it got funded. Have there been any notable integrations or...

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    I wouldn't get too excited dude... It's more than likely going to be "Dash". Maybe with "Digital Cash" stuck on the end. Walter

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    The Dash "D" isn't truly "Iconic".. 99% of the world population doesn't even know it exists..? Neil Armstrong = Iconic Bill Gates = Iconic Steve Jobs = Iconic The Beatles = Iconic Dash Digital Cash = Who? Walter

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    I'm astonished at how many branding and marketing experts we have in our midst all of a sudden! :rolleyes: On a serious note: the majority of talking heads in our community, with respect, do not not know what they are talking about (even those that think they do). As the saying goes, opinions...

    Webpage Stats - Feb 2018 - good info for MNO's

    Is there any way of removing February data from the charts above? It would be easier to analyse if data was taken to the last full month of figures. Thanks Walter

    Pre-Proposal: Dashop.io - Online Shopping Marketplace

    Thank for your responses on Dashcentral, much appreciated. I really like the idea and I genuinely want to support it but I really think you should consider a tender process for this website development work - given the high price you've been quoted. You don't need to go to India to get it done...

    Pre-Proposal: Dashop.io - Online Shopping Marketplace

    Hello, A few more questions: - Which country will the website be operated from? And where will the data be physically hosted? This is important as it governs what your obligations are with regards to data protection. - There seems to be little in the way of details about how you plan to keep...

    Dash Watch Pre-proposal

    Yes from me. It'll be a valuable resource for the network and I have 100% confidence in Paragon delivering on the scope set out. Like a number of others in the community, he reached out to get feedback on how best to go about this, the result is a well thought out and well written proposal. The...

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

    Yes. No brainer. We paid over 2000D's to get onto Kraken earlier in the year, and that was without any airdrop (admittedly Dash was 1/10th the price at that point). The fact that the funds are going towards stimulating the user base to 'try' dash can only be a good thing. It would be a massive...

    Scaling up Bitcart & Festy

    I agree with the sentiment in your proposal, let's put what's happened in the past and look objectively at how the Dash treasury can help Bitcart & Festy achieve the overall goal of growing the Dash network. With that in mind I have some questions with regards to these scaling plans: Bitcart...

    Pre-Proposal: Coinfirm Trudatum

    I also have a bit of an issue with the budget breakdown, I think it's inadequate and looks inflated to me.. "Other Costs (travel, living, hardware, software licences, etc) $490 000,000" That's a lot of travel, living, hardware and software! Cripes! It doesn't pass the sniff test that 'other...

    Pre-Proposal: Coinfirm Trudatum

    The way this proposal has been sold to us in the end is along the lines of a "pay-to-play" type arrangement. The underlying tech and solution is great and I have no doubt that the combination of Trudatum on the Dash blockchain is optimal for both Coinfirm and it's clients. Where things fall...

    Exactly the same problem here. Followed the same process, fully bought and paid for... no goods as yet! Beginning to wonder if I'll ever see it @Dr. Julian Hosp ?!! I am based in Europe too so there's no excuse.. this card will work for me if I ever get one... Walter

    Also - great work @Mark Mason . Kudos to you for persisting with this one, I know a lot of work has gone into it. If I have the pleasure of your company in London next month at all, the beers are on me! ;) Walter

    Pre-Proposal Max Keiser Stephen Baldwin Across America Road Tour TV Sponsorship

    100% yes from me... Very cool proposal. Plenty of bang for the buck and limited downside in my opinion. If it raises awareness of Dash to 500,000 potential users who already have a general interest in this kinda thing then it's worth every penny. $1 a referral for new users and potential new...

    Proposal: Dash Conference 2017 (London)

    This is great news, London will be a fantastic venue and it's 100% yes from me.. I can't wait to finally meet everyone. I'm based out of Liverpool so not too far on the train! It's going to be a superb event i'm sure, nice to hear it's being tied in with another related event also. That should...

    Is Dash getting chumped?

    I know Charlie has been in Dashnation slack occasionally with updates but nothing formal and/or publicised for community-wide distribution. Other than that, yes, I agree, it would be reassuring to hear timely progress updates. Walter

    Usability - of Dash units by "your mother" target user.

    Hi Mugwamp nice to meet you....! I know that it's not your preferred nomenclature (it's Tom)... however, I think it's appropriate to highlight from the outset that your name is very much.. well... just a name. The fact that we all agree to call you Mugwamp, or even Tom is very much either a)...

    Pre-Proposal: Alt36 + Dash Payment Platform

    Whilst I can understand your frustration I struggle to understand why you think your proposal was somehow comparable to the proposal submitted by Alt36? Maybe I've completely missed the mark with the hempsweet proposal(?) but I've read both proposals and I can honestly say that it would be like...

    Why is no one here talking about Dash/USD or Dash/BTC prices?

    If you want to discuss the price of Dash the best place is Dash Nation Slack #Dash_markets channel :) https://dash-nation-invite.herokuapp.com/ We're all pretty chilled about the day to day price of dash. Most here are more interested in the price of Dash 3, 5 and 10 years from now... And we...

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    Technically it's a rather neat approach, it's an engineer's solution to a problem :) and I like good engineering solutions... Where I get off the train is that I don't believe the problem is impacting Dash negatively in any meaningful way at present. I think the current system is working exactly...

    Pre-Proposal: Adaptive Proposal Fees

    It seems to me that you're all trying to engineer a solution to a problem that doesn't exist... ;) We need to focus on encouraging more Alt36 type proposals. We're shooting for parity with Bitcoin here, we aren't going to get anywhere near Bitcoin by funding hundreds of 50 Dash projects (no...

    Should the Core Team start "saving" for massive market campaign?

    I'd like to see the emergence of a separate Dash DAO for Marketing. Run professionally with oversight from the network. They can then commission appropriate publicity/advertising agencies, manage the contracts and deliverable and coordinate marketing efforts across the network. This is something...

    PIVX is growing rapidly time to wake up

    Pivx's meteoric rise in price is good for Dash. Firstly it vindicates the Dash model, and that the market assigned value to the model... second, it further reinforces and supports the market cap of Dash. No way dash will drop to pivx levels of market cap all else being equal. I don't hold any...
