    Dash privacy features deserve the same regulatory treatment as Bitcoin

    We are facing an unsolvable situation. We have Privacy, Know Your Costumer Social Symmetry (Not having a Big Brother) And basically so far it seems it is only possible to have systems that have 2 of those 3 fundamental qualities. And depending which of the three you drop you have a different...

    Incompatibility between DashNexus, Ledger nano s and DashMasternodeTool

    Hello, I just wanted to raise a flag about an incompatibility between those three softwares: DashNexus, Ledger Nano and DashMasternode Tool. In the DashNexus to participate in the discussion you need to prove that you are the owner of a masternode. Fine. Unfortunately to prove it you are asked...

    Dash privacy features deserve the same regulatory treatment as Bitcoin

    I'm unconvinced, sorry. Even though you can make the same transactions in Bitcoin and in Dash, making them in bitcoin would cost much more and would be much slower. As such they are not really available, while in Dash they really are available. Regards, Pietro

    Dash Core Group Q2 2019 Summary Call - Thursday, 8 August 2019

    Hello, I have several questions. I shall try to write them in separate posts to think through them better, and to let people vote for them individually: 1) what is the real situation of Dash in Venezuela (past, present and future)? Seriously we received all sort of contradictory informations...

    Dash Latam Announces Venezuela Breaches 10,000 Active Mobile Dash Wallet Installs; First to 10K

    Hi George, Let's say that a wallet is active not just if it was turned on, but if it received or sent some dash in the last week. Would we have a way to measure this? Also I am reading very different reports over how many merchants are really active in Venezuela. The number move from 300 to...

    Dash Latam Announces Venezuela Breaches 10,000 Active Mobile Dash Wallet Installs; First to 10K

    Very interesting @George Donnelly . I have a question. If the Dash wallet is inside each telephone bought, then it is natural that the number of wallets will skyrocket. But this is not telling much about real Dash adoption. How do you distinguish (if you do) between wallets that are actually...

    Transparency: measuring local transactions

    Hi @tungfa , maybe the reason why this person is not starting his own thread is that you are not allowed to start a new thread with a new account. Is that so, @Vins3000 ?

    Transparency: measuring local transactions

    I am happy to see Dash is still moving strong and survived its second crypto winter. As I explore the state of the Dash network I would like to see a number of data. In particular is it possible to find out the number of transactions that are happening in a specific part of the world? Like how...

    Stupids and Spies bought masternodes in order to stop governance.

    I have no master. I come here with my name, my cv, my research published. And I represent only myself. But who are you? Who is behind you? Are you actually paid to come to this forum? You speak about spies,and your behaviour is all but transparent.

    Dash Empire: To The Moon (tabletop card game)

    Thanks for the suggestion. I am not very much an adv person. So my knowledge is limited. You are basically suggesting that we support your game in exchange for it to become a vehicle for dash advertisement. Nevertheless my guess is that a board game has limited potentiality to reach enough...

    Which masternodes voted and what exactly voted on various proposals.

    Hi @demo . I don't have much time. I personally do not support taking money away from people in general. I don't exclude one day there might be a system such as this in place as the way distributed juries might punish specific individuals that broke some laws. This could be the way the DAO...

    Which masternodes voted and what exactly voted on various proposals.

    what a terrible idea @demo. You have no problem that those spies exists, and here you are already planning to steal money from people to balance something that exists only in your mind.

    Which masternodes voted and what exactly voted on various proposals.

    Hmm, not sure. I agree that this information is really important. Probably the 70 masternodes is Evan Duffield. Maybe you could calculate the Gini Index (I never did it, but I am sure the instructions on how to do it are online). This is a measure of how centralised a society is.

    What is a better reward for the community?

    I agree with @jimbursch . I see very little use of this. And no need or possibility to vote for something that is protected by NDA.

    no. The randomness is just among the proposals in the top 10%. But you still should know what your position is. So you know how far you are from the top 10%.

    Well, at the moment all my masternodes signal that they need to be restarted. And I shall just ignore it. When I had only 1 masternode I always ignored it because I was too terrorised to try it, and it worked very well. Then I tried to restart it one time to check if the position on dashcentral...

    And how do you know what is the position in the queue? Because according to @UdjinM6 we cannot trust DashCentral. And there was no way he could tell me to find out what the actual position in the queue was.

    And that was our problem. Apparently when we restart the node goes back to the end of the queue. And we don't always need to do it. Don't ask me the logic, I have lost it few messages ago

    I am not sure how safe it is for me to release in public data about my masternodes. So I was grateful for the opportunity to write him in private. Also when I speak in private I can speak more freely. If I make an accusation, maybe a dumb one, no one gets offended. And I can be corrected more...

    So basically on the wallet the "My Masternodes" tab kept telling me that I "Needed to restart" the MN. And the same on dashcentral. And according to @UdjinM6 this should not be given much credit. I should instead used the other masternode to check if the first one is really on the list. And...

    Thanks. I have been indeed working with @UdjinM6 for the whole day. He has been very helpful, and we exchanged messages, and he gave me several tips. We probably found what happened. But I also need to admit that the result had nothing to do with voting, but apparently there is a bias in favour...

    Proposal: DASH SXSW Music Festival

    Hi UdjinM6, sure let's investigate this. I am sending you a message here. I don't know who this person is, but I don't think it's a troll. Sounds more like someone who made a big investment in DASH to buy a masternode and it's now frustrated that it's not paying back as it was explained. And...

    Sorry, it is not his or her job to calculate this. It is your job as member of the core group to prove that it is fair. Beside every extra masternode that a person own or that a group of friends own will support each other raising the probability to be paid. In other words this is a system to...

    Here are two masternodes which I own which haven't been paid one in 24 days and one in 1 month. Basically they never were paid from when we moved to the new version of the code. I raised the server supporting them to be 2048 MB. When I did this it was already a couple of weeks that they should...

    Proposal: DASH SXSW Music Festival

    I am not very much into spending tons of money just to have the name DASH written some place. If instead all the buying and selling in the festival was done using DASH, so participants were required to have a wallet and buy some dash, and use them, then it would be a different ball game.

    A proposal now costs over $3,000

    If you did not understand it, I should try to explain it better, or at least differently. In every moment the value of a coin is given by the point of encounter between the request for it, and the availability. The more people want it the more the price goes up, the more is available the more...

    A proposal now costs over $3,000

    That's a completely different model. And an interesting one. I would't just agree to it as I would need to see the consequences. Like what if people suggest things that are not neutral or beneficial to the dash network, but hinder it. You might not want to find those proposals even if they were...

    A proposal now costs over $3,000

    Hi @UdjinM6 , thanks for replying me. If the system needs to lower the number of proposals that are considered it means that the governance is too centralised, and we have to redesign it (I am available, you know). We don't need all masternodes to evaluate all the proposals. The system can...

    Paying merchants to accept Dash

    When you start a network the first part is always the hardest. It's a bit like when you turn on a car with a combustion engine. The engine might be perfect, but you still need some external electricity to activate it. That's why you have an electrical engine to turn on the normal one. When I...

    Paying merchants to accept Dash

    I am not seeing any work on merchant. Can you please point me on that? Said that I don't particularly care if it is 90/10, 50/50, 10/90. As long as both sides are being activated. We had a very successful campaign that would pay 10 dollars for each person installing a dash wallet. That's great...

    Paying merchants to accept Dash

    I keep seeing all sorts of crazy proposals about Dash, but I miss the most obvious and simple one: pay x dollars in dash to each merchant that for 1 year accepts dash in their shop. And I am speaking here about real world shops, restaurants, places on the high street, taxi and so on. To obtain...

    A proposal now costs over $3,000

    When the fee was low there was a much lower amount of money available. I have three possible suggestions: 1) masternode vote which proposals do not get back their fee. So the votes become (Yes, Abstain, No, No and do not get back the fee) the last one only used for spammy proposals. And from...
