    Store of Value Community AMAs - June 2020

    You can see your investment as a black box. At one time you put a certain amount of money in, at some other time you look how much you can get out of that box. You subtract the initial investment and what is left is "return on investment" (ROI). You can then express that in USD or in a...

    Store of Value Community AMAs - June 2020

    From my DM Conversation on Discord: Q: 3 issues: 1 fast growing circulating supply, 2 Voting participation, 3 Fixed Treasury. #1 has been linked to MN ROI, which is correct but MN ROI is not just a percentage of Dash being paid out. It is also the value per Dash. So if we can increase the...

    Dash Economics Discussion Series

    Today I found out that Ryan DID respond to questions in that channel. And that yesterday was the last day. Thank you macrochip!

    Dash Economics Discussion Series

    I wanted to put my thoughts in the Discord Dash Talk (#ryan-questions channel) but was told by macrochip to remove it or rephrase it. Then I heard that Ryan was not going to respond in that channel, leaving me unsure how to share my thoughts... So I'll just jot them down here and hopefully...

    Dash Podcast 101 feat Lauren Murphy Co Founder & President of Alt36

    There is something that puzzled me in this podcast. I already asked in the YT-comments, but no answer yet. So I'll ask here again: So with Alt36 you can pay with Dash, but you don't need to. You can pay through Alt36 from your bank account to the dispensary's bank account. Can someone explain...

    Dash Usability Expands with Integration into Spend App and VISA Card

    The article says that the wirex (temporarily) had a Dash enabled card. This is not true. Since Wirex announced their upcoming Dash integration I signed up and got myself a card. I am still waiting for the Dash wallet. For well over a year now. It seems like they are using their Dash funding to...

    51% Wallet Claims

    Mmmm, interestin. Leaving those paintball games aside for a moment, is there a more or less trustless way to verify the status of the coming releases and testnet?

    51% Wallet Claims

    Excellent! The reason why a 51% attack would be unlikely on the Dash network, that their miner investment would be lost, is not true as mining power can be rented. But there is another reason. To profit from such an attack one would need a significant amount of dash to double spend. Also it...

    51% Wallet Claims

    When is 0.14 planned ? When testnet? When mainnet? As the code is written, the requisites are on mainnet and testnet is free, I would say: "what are we waiting for?" Package it up and deploy!

    HandCash Chain Switch Shows Importance of Ease of Use at Protocol Level

    This sounds like bad news brought as good news. We have been talking about using usernames instead of public keys for years and now they implement it first? in a matter of months? Sounds to me like Dash needs to get its act together, or am I missing something here?

    New Mining Approaches Provide Hedge Against Centralization As Hash War Looms

    "Funny", because I was just thinking about that while reading about sharkpool. I do not think Dash is in any danger from these freedom hating BCH-fans or others. Do the math, and see how much X11 hashpower they would need in order to get, say 25% of Dash's hashpower. And even then they would...

    Bitcoin Cash (BCH/BCC) and Dash

    Yes, their Dash holdings are also scary! But compared to 5.9% of all BCH,... Dash feels safer. For a B$ corp it may not be a big deal, but for a 17M coin currency it is.

    Bitcoin Cash (BCH/BCC) and Dash

    About one year ago, near the birth of BCH I wrote this post: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@mage00000/bitcoin-cash-a-lesser-dash. I got a few responses as you can read there but I think my original thoughts will prove to be right. Especially now that we heard about Bitmain's BCH holdings. When it...

    Wirex Announces Partnership With Dash, New Contactless Cards

    Dash funded wirex for adding a dash wallet to their platform. That wallet would have been ready by February this year (2018). So I opened an account with them hoping that I would soon have my Dash debit card. Wirex has since February added a LTC wallet, a XRP wallet and a few days ago an ETH...

    Dash Media Black Out. Causes and solutions.

    Over a month has passed since the above post and I see a change. I don't know what happened, but something definitely changed. Datadash for example no longer avoids Dash. I have seen him mentioning Dash this last month more than in the entire year before. Even with some quick TA on its price...

    Some Thoughts on Dash's Funding Priorities, DashText, and Dash's Future

    Saw the video this morning and largely agree with your point. However there is one thing that I have to get off my chest after seeing the proposal video, which is.... "If you do not control your private keys, you do not really own your crypto" If Dash pursues its goal to be THE peer2peer crypto...

    Let's make SWOT Analysis for Dash

    I have thought about this a bit more and truly believe this is something we need to do, but very few of us have a global view of the entire project. For example things that may be true in the US may not be true elsewhere. So I would suggest a small brainstorm session where we just write down...

    Dash Media Black Out. Causes and solutions.

    In the last episode of the 3 (three) amigo’s Joël mentioned the Dash media black out which is something I also noticed on crypto youtube channels. It is as if people are literally avoiding to say “Dash”, as if it is a four letter word… I even watched someone going down the list of coinmarketcap...

    ZB.COM volume question

    Thanks for the link, InhumanPerfection. I have been watching this link now for a while and noticed that most (say almost all) orders that are supposedly executed were not in the orderbooks before. So that is definitely fishy. Also contrary to the coinlib.io graph there is a lot of back and forth...

    ZB.COM volume question

    I have been wondering about the current volume shown at various sites that is supposedly traded at ZB.COM. We are looking at over a hundred million USD worth of Dash for a couple of days already! At the current price that is almost half a million Dash. At coinlib.io we can follow the money: So...

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    @ JOL Isn't that just a on/off button? The video that Triptolemoose posted helped me in my acceptance process of the T&C logo. But.... both have been rejected, so what happens now? Back to the drawing board? Or just continue using what we have?

    Just to add some creativity. I Like what GrandMasterDash has done, it is just that the D and C 'hang around' there. Why not straighten it out, make it look like they know where to go....

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    Interesting, reading through all these reactions. I can hardly add anything to it, most things that I wanted to say have been said by others, sometimes even in the exact words! I quite like the current logo, but that is my personal nerdy crypto opinion. We have to look at what would convince...

    What I Learned About Consensus From Dash’s Branding Vote

    Where does this discussion take place? I would have expected here on this forum, but I can't find anything.... I'm interested in seeing peoples thoughts. (and stir up the already heated discussion, LOL)

    @MrGold , that was true in the past and maybe it still is, but it clearly shouldn't. Especially when a lot of money and power is involved.

    BIG treasury

    Yes, I still have to get into this way of thinking. It is a bit weird, though. If I were to get funded by the blockchain, I am receiving money but there is no legal entity paying me. So for example -this is an example that I was recently discussing with someone else- say the Coinbase CEO says he...

    BIG treasury

    LOL, yes, none of this is legal advice, nor is it financial advice. It is just a thread of more or less random thoughts from more or less random people. The reason why I am bringing this up is 1 that I was thinking about it (as in "random thoughts") and 2 that I think this is much closer than...

    BIG treasury

    I see people getting all excited when some large company, like MS, shows interest in some blockchain, resulting in massive increases in the price of its token. These people (I think) do not see the power of the dash treasury. Dash now has about 8,000,000 USD/mo to spend, if 2018 will be as good...

    Thoughts on Reverse Split or Redenominating DASH

    I understand the problem. People are used to USD, EUR etc. and you always have more than one. But think of it this way; if we would go back to using gold, would you insist on having 1 Kg and that 0.0001 Kg is impractical? Would you rather trade using copper or iron, so that you can have full...

    I’ve Had Enough! Time For A Blockchain Wake Up Call!

    So many words to state the obvious.... I've been saying this since I got into crypto's: BTC is not going to make it. (<--- period) It won't be a store of value neither because if that is its only value, that is way too fragile. When I started researching crypto's Dash was in my opinion the...

    Visa card for cryptocurrency service

    That sounds fantastic! People like you give me an even greater confidence in dash. What you are doing is really great, but that doesn't mean that everyone who takes smaller steps than you is hurting the dash ecosystem. Every step in the right direction, no matter how small it appears to you...

    I mentioned my mother a few times here. That was not just a figure of speech. She is 74 years old now, lives in the Netherlands and would like to support her grand-daughter (my daughter) when she goes to university next year, in Thailand. She would like to send her 100 EUR/month, or thereabout...

    Visa card for cryptocurrency service

    True again. But right now I want to be able to spend my dash and it is going to be very difficult to get my mother to use it if she has no way of spending it. You need to do the above, but every store you walk into will not accept dash. So you'll do your story and walk out w/o your goods? You'll...

    Visa card for cryptocurrency service

    True! That is why I believe in Dash. It can be done, it needs to get done and so it will get done. But it isn't done yet. Dash may have enough money to dash-up the village here, but there are millions villages and cities like this. Dash can not do that overnight, not in a week, a month or not...
