    Will mining Dash become profitable again?

    An equilibrium at 2 PH/s, the equivalent of less than 135,000 D3's. Talk about centralized. The equilibrium proves that DASH will never be a viable option as a decentralized currency, along with the ridiculous masternode system, which was the entire point of this discussion. Imagine my shock...

    Will mining Dash become profitable again?

    As predicted, hashrate soft caps (in terms of profit) at ~2.2 PH/s. Just fluctuating between 1.8-2 now (although there seems to be recent development in the hashrate the last few hours). I'm figuring miners know the percentage gain of a DASH coin would be a bigger gain than that of a Bitcoin...

    Will mining Dash become profitable again?

    There's a benefit-to-cost ratio associated with mining anything in general. When it is said that it is "unprofitable" to mine, its mostly related to current prices and current DASH difficulty makes the benefit-to-cost non-existent. So technically yes, its TECHNICALLY profitable to mine DASH...

    D3 set up help

    Also, is that a converter from 220 to 120 (i think you meant 110)? Or the other way around? Your wording was confusing, but if its the former, then you don't need a converter at all. https://www.antminerdistribution.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/APW3-12-1600-user-guide.pdf

    Silly question, but when you turn it on without connecting it to the D3, does the fan run and do you feel airflow going through it?

    DASH mining in any capacity is officially dead

    Well changing the vote would be a big deal, since the network has a hard on for shitty governance - now its hackable? But wouldn't they just unlock the MN 1000 DASH and dump it somewhere? But I guess it depends where you stored it... anyway... It's dead BECAUSE of the rush. The network can't...

    Bitcoin Segwit2x coin isn't the same as the one in November. I'm not really sure on its future as a viable crypto... but it might be a good pump and dump.

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    I'm sure the service would charge them for maintenance (thats why its a sharing SERVICE), so technically not infinite ROI. Still, the same applies for them based on the amount they charge them for maintaining the servers by the amount they get back.

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    You just priced the first assumption at the current valuation of $1000/DASH, and you don't expect to do the same with the valuation of your incoming DASH as well? At 6.9 DASH/month, you're gaining at LEAST $6800 for every additional $100 you put in. Your valuation of an additional $800/month...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    The better question is what's YOUR point? Why even bring up stratis when they have solved the liquidity issue, the hoarding of their currency, and bloated MN profits (not necessarily the way I would do it, but it works)? LOL.
  15. Checkerama

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Stratis also has a circulating supply of 98 million coins. They also have less than a tenth of DASH masternode count. And the ROI is substantially less (currently at 1% instead of DASH's 8%) So they got the message. I don't need to save them.

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Fair enough, but what I'm suggesting would prevent it from being a hurl from a high place. I won't save any of you, since you all came in early enough, but for future investors and DASH holders (who would definitely stand to lose more than you percentage wise). None of what I'm writing is to...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Of course you don't understand, youre an MNO. My main premise is that masternode governance was a good idea, but its profit system for doing absolutely nothing (also of which it does not adhere to a sliding difficulty rule such as miners have) has turned it into a bunker for hedgers and kept...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Then DASH is not digital cash, it's a corporation for profit now, profiting off of the later contributors to your system where the only winners are the ones that come in early enough, which brings me back to what I was saying on earlier threads that that vision is now dead, and we are only left...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    True, but now we have to apply it in terms of many problems others are seeing with the currency today - specifically, the lack of liquidity and the race for hoarding as much of it as you can. In its current form, DASH reflects a mechanism for hyperdeflationary economics, where even the slightest...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    No, the proper math is you ALSO gained $10,000 on each your own $100 contribution just like every non-MNO, PLUS an additional $7,500 (currently) for every $100 you spent (on server maintenance, lemme know if I can make this number more accurate) thereafter on a monthly basis (with no regard to...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    That would only hold true if MNs had bought the accrued 8% additional DASH by buying them at market value, but you didn't - again, you had it distributed to you at dirt cheap prices just for being a 1000 DASH holder. If I hold 500 DASH, I don't get the additional ROI that you do UNLESS i buy...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    You're explaining it too complex - simply put, when you did your calculations, all you did was add the 8% DASH you got into your total 1M so you could dilute the profits youre gaining as a MN, but that is NOT the case at all. Lets say if someone wanted to buy DASH at its current price of $1000...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Then break down the math so you can prove my point. This is how you calculate ROI: "Everyone else" holding DASH for a year: 9500% return (supposedly) But what you're forgetting is that these are holders and are getting no increased value of DASH for their current holdings, so your 10300%...

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Actually it was a "how do we not allow DASH to turn into a hyperdeflationary currency where everyone simply hoards it" discussion before someone decided they were gonna pull a fast one and try to justify their ridiculous ROIs. I can't allow that.
  26. Checkerama

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    *facepalm* because your 1000 DASH is not spent, it is locked, so your 9500% calculation is how much you have also made off of holding your 1000 DASH. the 10300% is simply off of the 8% return per year.
  27. Checkerama

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Right, because the DASH community is going to support equipment that is still theoretical, doesn't exist yet, and hasn't even been priced yet so you could sit with 20,000% ROI for barely doing anything more than sit on more DASH than the average user holds? Save the mental gymnastics for the...
  28. Checkerama

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    Your common sense seems to be off - did you just breeze over the fact you have 1000 DASH locked as well? So that means you're making over twice as much as the average DASH holder (10300 + 9500).
  29. Checkerama

    An Open Letter From Evan and Ryan Regarding Dash Marketing

    While it does liberate half of the currency the MNs already possess, it also increases centralization of masternodes - people who now had 1000 DASH will just turn it to 2 masternodes if they can afford it, and the barrier of entry would be that much easier for others already hoarding their DASH...

    You've already participated in one of my many conversations with your MNOs, are you seriously still doubting that they're incompetent? Is governance structured to make the best decisions for the DASH community, or just a play-thing for early DASH adopters to keep them from dumping over half of...

    Even if it meant bettering the community or the currency? LOL, PLEASE keep highlighting exactly what I've been saying all along about how shit the governance of DASH is.

    Will mining Dash become profitable again?

    There are other ways you can increase reward without altering block generation, such as transaction fee increase or a slider rule to determine MNO payout (which is completely contingent of someone mining the network, btw) much like miners have difficulties set OR higher rewards per block mined...
