    A Massive Promotion of DASH via cooperation with El Nacional

    I have created a new pre-proposal concept regarding El Nacional, Venezuela's last independently circulated newspaper. It have posted it here, on Dash Nexus. To put it succinctly, in return for supplying El Nacional with various needed items, such as smartphones and laptops, we would recieve a...

    Pre-Proposal: Funding for El Nacional, Venezuela's last idependent newspaper.

    This is interesting. I think, however, that in Venezuela all the remaining newspapers are owned by the government, and the government is already unwilling to sell paper to El Nacional. With that in mind, it seems highly unlikely that they would be willing to just donate this extra paper. When...

    Pre-Proposal: Funding for El Nacional, Venezuela's last idependent newspaper.

    I have had a few feedback comments now which have said that we should avoid involving DASH in politics. I am not suggesting that we get into anything political at all. This is a newspaper. It just reports events. I am not suggesting that DASH should take sides in any political contests, or that...

    Pre-Proposal: Funding for El Nacional, Venezuela's last idependent newspaper.

    Could you please tell me what you mean by a more subtle approach? I am very open to suggestions, and would gladly welcome any and all community input on this.

    Pre-Proposal: Funding for El Nacional, Venezuela's last idependent newspaper.

    The amount I am looking for is for a very minimal printing. This would be for 2000 copies, daily, for one month. I should also say, that while I originally called it "Venezuela's last anti-government newspaper," I think it would have been more accurate to simply call it "Venezuela's last...

    Does anyone else have any opinions on this pre-proposal?

    Pre-Proposal: Funding for El Nacional, Venezuela's last idependent newspaper.

    I appreciate your input. It can be argued, however that cryptocurrency itself is a brazen political statement. The idea of "being your own bank" may be seen as a brazen political statement. The idea of eliminating the need for permission from any third party, be it a financial institution or a...

    Pre-Proposal: Funding for El Nacional, Venezuela's last idependent newspaper.

    I am proposing the allocation of $25,000 (approximately 347 DASH at the time of this writing) be allocated from the DASH Masternode Budget, to assist El Nactional, Venezuela's last nationally circulated idependent newspaper to resume printing. Below is the story of how I conceived of this...

    Dash volume discrepancy?

    I noticed the same thing with the volume just a couple of days ago myself. I think it may simply be because Dash is actually being used as currency, in places like Venezuela and elsewhere. Expect the price to rise dramatically as a result, in time.

    What does Ripple do that DASH cannot?

    Haha, yes. I do believe the time will come when banks, as we know them today, will cease to exist. "Be your own bank" is such a liberating and revolutionary idea, and yet so simple and natural. But I am really asking about the technical capabilities of DASH vs Ripple. Is there really any...

    What does Ripple do that DASH cannot?

    There has been a lot of hype around XRP lately, and how it is and will be used by banks. Couldn't banks use DASH for exactly the same thing, particularly with Instant Transactions? Is there some good technical reason that XRP seems to be the choice of banks? Or is it just a matter of marketing...

    Is DASH a "Security" as defined by SEC?

    It has come to my attention that the SEC (in the US) considers certain cryptos to fit their definition of a "security," while others are not considered securities. Securities and ICO's are subject to more regulation than non-securities. Does anyone here know where DASH would fall?

    Budget Proposal Discussions: Territory of DASH. Part 1. Presentation Dash in Belarus

    As we all know here, Dash is the first coin with instant transactions, the key innovation to making a crypto viable for immediate, real-world, in-person transactions, rather than merely as a means for internet transactions where such speed doesn't matter. I do believe that if Dash is promoted...

    Speak for yourself. I am none of the above. And whereas I might trust a "slave" to at least be honest, I could not say the same of a narcissist, psychopath or sadist.

    Bitcoin Flash: If Bitcoin and Dash had a baby...

    The one "number" I would be okay with voting for, and applying dynamically, would be the Masternode Budget proposal fee. That seems safe enough. As for other types of "numbers," each would have to be examined individually to see if it was or was not appropriate to change them dynamically as...

    Bitcoin Flash: If Bitcoin and Dash had a baby...

    I should be more specific. This is a non-issue as far as I am concerned. I don't know why those four, or you, consider this so important. I will go further, however, and say that changing certain numbers "at run time" could actually be dangerous to the function of Dash itself. It is FAR safer to...

    Bitcoin Flash: If Bitcoin and Dash had a baby...

    It is not a matter of accepting slavery. That would be stupid. It is a matter of thinking that in certain things the core team has more knowledge, and they defer to them for that reason. Furthermore, Masternode operators are already free to "choose the numbers" for anything they want. All they...

    Bitcoin Flash: If Bitcoin and Dash had a baby...

    Votes by Masternodes aren't "automated." They are cast by those who own them. Also, I can see a danger in changing certain numerical variables in "run time" without testing on testnet first. So, why do you feel this is such an important issue? No one else seems to, so I would like to know why...

    Bitcoin Flash: If Bitcoin and Dash had a baby...

    Well, we already can vote to change the numbers which control the protocol. That's covered by masternode governance already. In order to make an informed vote, however, one would need evidence regarding what numbers would be optimum. In the absence of such evidence, I would say that the current...

    Ok, so "vote for the numbers" means "vote for the numbers which control the protocol?"

    Donating DASH from the budget to the Venezuelan people

    I wish we had flying cars. I think most people would like to have a flying car, and would vote for flying cars. I can imagine a national referendum (in a country which has such referendums) where the vast majority voted for flying cars. But...flying cars are technically infeasible. There is no...

    Donating DASH from the budget to the Venezuelan people

    LOL! An opinion poll is very different from an masternode poll. And, even more to the point, even if a thing were voted upon UNANIMOUSLY, if it is impossible (or even just prohibitively complex/difficult) to implement, then voting won't make it happen. Just any COMPELLING proof will do, for any...

    I have seen you talk about "voting the numbers" over and over, all over the forum. There are many ways of voting, and ALL of them have to do with numbers. There are voting systems which require a majority, some which require a super-majority, countless variations of proportional voting systems...

    Of course you haven't proven it...and yet you claim to believe it. Carl Sagan has famously said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." I totally agree. Until you have such extraordinary evidence (which you admit you don't) then you are unjustified in your claims. Until then you...

    Donating DASH from the budget to the Venezuelan people

    This is a paranoid and unfounded assertion. Making such an assertion could just as easily mean YOU are an "enemy agent," paid to create discord here. So rather than making such a ridiculous claim, PROVE IT. You would then be dependent upon the dynamic domain name server, which would add a bit...

    Go ahead and read his "answer" as well as the entire thread before it. In fact, read ALL of his posts. He just said he has a very small stake in Dash, which means he has no real vested interest, and yet spend an inordinate amount of time here. But that time is spent in attempts to create discord...

    Then do what I have done: Start one or more websites of your own. Use them to describe the kind of world you want to build. People will find YOU then, and you could work together to BUILD something great. Then you wont have to sow discord, nonsense and lies here, or elsewhere for that matter.
