    What is up with the CoPay wallet?

    Loving the wallet, I'm going to play with all the advanced features. But first a bug: I turned on fingerprint scanning and now I can't access the app, looks like it's not tying into android's system for scanning. The home button scanner I have stays in home button mode and therefore I have no...

    Dash Doesn't Need to Reinvent the Wheel with Advertising - Online Search Beats it All

    Good to see you back on here @dashdisciple The proposal was created in collaboration with Dashdisciple starting back in September, but I had to delay the release due to the work load of Circus City and the need to bring the Radiolab proposal to conclusion when it became clear that it was not...

    I've added in a line to the budget that makes it clearer that the wages will be paid on an hourly basis rather than as a monthly salary, thus the network will only be paying for full time work if that is what it takes to run the campaign. It also gives us some flexibility in terms of hiring...

    The timeline currently depends on the release of the Ogilvy & Mather branding update, this is scheduled for December/January as i understand it. Given the lack of proposals this month we may put in the proposal and if successful hold the the funds until the rebranding is released. The logic for...

    Google Adwords

    I think that the high cost of crypto related clicks calls for a relatively high expenditure, and having a high tier account requires the monthly spend of $150,000+. The advice I received was very clear that $150k would be the minimum necessary to generate meaningful data. I'm open to...

    Thanks for the response, I'm happy that you feel the pre-proposal is clear. 1) I come from a background in theatre, however since May I've been making my living working full time for Dash as an advocate for user adoption and reaching outside the crypto-sphere to new users, you can take a look...

    8 Steps to a Successful Proposal

    This is an excellent post, I think it should be stickied in the proposal section of the forum, there have been several proposals in the last month that would have benefited from reading this before submitting and paying their 5 Dash. It is also the case that this info isn't covered anywhere...

    Dash Watch Pre-proposal

    I got over excited, I helped paragon through the process of submitting the proposal and then posted here afterwards. You can be sure when paragon confirms it. I haven't heard of anyone stealing a pre-proposal, sounds like a great way to throw away 5 Dash. You raise a good point though, I...

    Can cryptocurrency be money?

    That's the title of this very interesting presentation by Prof. Steve Keen, a favourite of mine because he takes a no bullshit approach to the business of economics. Following a debunking of the idea of an economy based on barter (one has never existed) and an introduction to the properties of...

    Sounds like very poor customer service. If I ran a company that made machines that turned electricity into money I would make sure never to run those machines myself, I would send them out as soon as possible and for the lowest price. I would make sure my customers had everything they needed to...

    Yes, it's clear that planned obsolescence is part of Apple's business model to force people to stop using old phones. Thanks for the background info about it not being possible to even provide an app for older phones. It makes sense that this would be their policy. We always asked people to...

    Proposal: Circus City Sponsorship

    Where is Charlie Shrem's DashPayCard?

    Currently multisig addresses are not valid for treasury proposals. If this can be changed then it would make it easier to do a simple form of on-chain escrow. 2/3 multisig isn't a guarantee that proposals will be delivered as there still remains the possibility of coercion, collaboration or...

    dash transaction price is now nearing 4 cents emergency

    Anyone responsible for the development of a wallet will have to wait until the reduced fee is locked in and then activated by the network. This will take around 4 weeks because it relies on the majority of nodes, miners and MNs to upgrade to 12.2

  29. Syntheist = terrible experience

    Funds are moved to cold storage and that causes the delay? Cool story, bro. I can see that the Dash I sent was confirmed and that the delay has nothing to do with cold storage because most of those coins never left the hot wallet address they were sent to, here the second set of coins I sent...

    Unifying Fiat Price Data

    Is it possible to establish a standard for fiat exchange rate data across wallet apps? Every wallet I've used seems to draw its price data from a different source, this means that if I send £5 from the Hash Engineering wallet on android the Dash Foundation wallet on iOS displays £5.27.

    Not enough for full node, what to do then?

    There are a number of masternode share services, you have to give the Dash over to them so you are exposed to the risk of it being lost if they are hacked or physically compromised. You could also form a company with a bunch of others and run your own shared masternode, sadly masternodes do not...
