    DashNexus update: “Which Dash crypto proposals are passing?”

    Who are you to make demands? Did you vote for this project? If so, then I would consider you constituent. However, you are not demonstrating understanding as to how investments, communities, voting, and societies function. Your motives appear to be selfish, emotionally driven, and do not appear...

    DashNexus update: “Which Dash crypto proposals are passing?”

    The system will be backed by an API by which anyone (including you) will be able to customize any implementation they choose. It might be helpful to understand how, exactly, you are judging "fairness". Is the whole internet unfair because only 1% of information available shows up in Google...

    Women In Blockchain Series, with Naomi Brockwell

    @amanda_b_johnson has made great contributions to the crypto-sphere. As a germanic-afro-cherokee-irish-american, I would be curious what minority groups you claim, @demo. It seems clear to me that you are demonstrating certain levels of entitlement and mistrust in your comments, generally, which...

    DashNexus update: “Which Dash crypto proposals are passing?”

    Yes. That is the plan (in a collapsible section of the layout), though enabling actual voting & additional views to evaluate existing proposals will precede updates to the Leaderboard. I think we can take this as a request. It would be helpful to understand what question you're trying to answer...

    DashNexus update: “Which Dash crypto proposals are passing?”

    You're absolutely correct. This Leaderboard is merely a "teaser" that leverages the exact same data that is publicly presented. What is being demonstrated here is NOT a "better dash vote tracker", but a demonstration of a better experience - which is the focus of DashNexus. Collecting &...

    Dash Evolution Demo #3

    @InhumanPerfection - worth considering. We're looking a simple iconography also. Glad to see our thinking isn't completely off-base. Disabling buttons with explanation is a great way to teach end-users, IMHO. We'll have to be careful with that kind of interaction, though. @jimbursch - Agree...

    Dash Evolution Demo #3

    Technically, not yet. "InstantSend is not InstantSpend" is the mantra I'm using. That is, In order to *spend* InstantSend funds, the spender still needs 6 confirmations. This is a known issue, and we're exploring ways to communicate this limitation with end-users, in the right context, at the...

    Dash Evolution Demo #3

    Tooltips are great, but easily overused, and often don't help the context for the end-user. Tooltips are like instructions on a pen with the click-button in an odd place; that is, once you've figured out how to click it, now the tooltip is wasted screen real-estate. In most cases it's better to...

    Dash Evolution Demo #3

    Thanks for your critiques, @InhumanPerfection ! Yours & other's like you who contribute are helping us to make decisions. On "switchable designs", I agree. Malcom Gladwell is one of my favorite authors. And this is one of my favorite talks. I doubt, however, that there is appetite or support...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    I agree that Comedy beats reverse psychology - but deception and lies will permanently destroy us. This proposed "commercial" does not align with reality today. It's just not possible unless you live in certain areas of New Hampshire right now. If we ran this advertisement today, it would be...

    Ignore Dash: Branding as THE COIN for "Instant Confirmations"

    It's funny because Dash logos were banned from a 1-day crtypo-cannabis conference today. Ask @Danny_Somthin !

    Front-end Team Evolution Demo Video #1

    I'm sorry, @debudebu, I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about here. Can you elaborate more about your specific concern here? Dash Core Group, Inc. is not collecting identifying information, and just as is common on other platforms, all data sharing is expected to be explicitly...

    Front-end Team Evolution Demo Video #1

    No, not as far as I know. Yes, as far as I know. I don't know. It is not a priority for myself, my team, nor have I heard any developers I'm working with refer to it, nor discuss it as a focus for themselves, nor their teams.

    Front-end Team Evolution Demo Video #1

    The Evolution platform design cryptographically separates wallets and wallet activity entirely from users and user activity. We're confirming the lack of link-ability through extensive system design review & platform testing. As I understand it, the Evolution Platform won't be released until...

    Proposal: Dash Bug Bounty - Bugcrowd 12 month renewal

    Thanks for your contributions, @jimbursch . This program helped us to secure the Copay beta, *before funds were lost or stolen*. Many thanks for issues that will never occur.

    That hasn't quite been worked out, AFAIK. I'm making some limited arguments for a moderated trading management system - but I'm pretty sure I don't have team agreement that Dash Core Group, Inc. should be managing the scope of this idea - in which case I agree. I think there's a lot of...

    Front-end Team Evolution Demo Video #1

    "Why" questions are always hard for me. It always invokes my philosophical side. So, apologies up front. My personal opinion based on my growing understanding of the vision being presented here is this: In the distant future, identity & privacy is going to be extremely important. If Dash is...

    Front-end Team Evolution Demo Video #1

    The system design (as I recall from ~ 2 months ago) may have zone in which part of the registration transaction includes a newly generated public address for use in default "pay-by-name" schemes. This way Amanda can receive funds to this address just by using the name on-protocol - but those...

    Front-end Team Evolution Demo Video #1

    I can't yet confirm the future plan that contact requests will be encrypted. It seems reasonable to expect, but we'll likely have to prioritize it appropriately. I think we'll clear up plans for that soon. The rest seems about right. By comparison - consider the case with email. They would...

    First a clarification: A "person" will NOT have "their" contact list readily available. The Dash protocol & Evolution platform is not designed not collect or store any identifying information of "persons". HOWEVER - in it's CURRENT nascent state of prototype and system design, the following...

    What is up with the CoPay wallet?

    It will be available in the Google Play and Apple Stores online. It will be a TESTNET BETA RELEASE. No actual funds can be managed with this release. ;-) Many of us love our jobs, and couldn't wait to get back to creating more to celebrate about! Alas, some of us have lives outside of...

    What is up with the CoPay wallet?

    Thanks everyone for your contributions &/or interest in the Dash Copay Beta. We have decided today to defer today’s release attempt until Wednesday, December 27th. We do not have a build in which we are confident, we had some minor last minute infrastructure issues, and there was some weakness...

    What is up with the CoPay wallet?

    We're making a go/no-go decision for public beta release in about 11 hours. I'll update this thread, Discord channels, and the website should be updated if & when we pull the trigger. Thanks everyone!

    Time to lower PrivateSend fee, pretty please -- it's up to ~$6 USD!

    @UdjinM6 is arguably one of our most knowledgeable developers, so on the hard-core tech side I would defer to his correction... however... it seems reasonable to me to expect that if the constraint is the number of denominations for performance purposes, then the value of a "10" mixer would...

    How should the Dash network be valued?

    At a minimum, from my perspective, the best value Dash actually holds right now are (in priority order): 1) The Community Ethos & Behavior 2) The Masternodes & Governance System (& network "re-investment") 3) The Developers & the Core Team Members (human dedication, efforts, loyalty...

    How should the Dash network be valued?

    Yet another article idea - "How should crypto networks be valued?" I'm going to give this some thought and come back to it - but 1 principle I would like to test to be true in this case: All value is belief. Given that - it's a matter of gauging who believes what, and how willing they are to...

    Bringing Festy & Dash to the public - Irish Pubs Global Market

    Dash is up for the job of managing the transaction volume, but not ancillary data, IMHO - some back of the napkin calcs I shared w/ Graham earlier: ______________________ With InstantSend the actual volume of transactions that can be carried is higher than 40tps, I'm asking team for data. Also...

    Bringing Festy & Dash to the public - Irish Pubs Global Market

    I like the discussion here, but I'd like to point out that Festy is going to need more data than the chain can currently provide in order to achieve certain functions. Also I fundamentally disagree with the notion that on-chain transactions are somehow indicative of a network's value. I actually...

    (Pre-prosal) The Dash Board: A Problem Solving Arm for Dash

    For now, on legal matters I defer to @fernando - but I also have courtroom, patent, and project license evaluation experience. Legal matters are far from foreign to me, personally, and I assure you - the legal stance of Dash is beautiful! Just my humble opinion. ;-) Nevertheless - I don't want...
