    Temporary Measures / Quick Wins

    Unallocated treasury funds were never created, so I don't see what is there to talk about.

    Consensus Mechanisms

    I really like this idea. Also, 10 Dash seems like a good point of entry. What this needs to be viable is a user-friendly integration into the wallet, so people can stake inside a mobile wallet for example. Also, I would propose that the "unit" of staking be 10 Dash, so you can only stake in...

    Flexible Proposal System

    Carry over no. I would be for a flexible system, but I think it would be only fair if that would dip into the MNO rewards, not rewards of miners (and/of stakers, if we implement that). As MNOs are effectively the ones with the power to vote on it and other network participants have no agency in...

    Temporary Measures / Quick Wins

    We could just lower the mining reward, keep MNO rewards and budget the same, and burn the rest. That would effectively raise the value of all Dash in circulation, impacting holders. Of course, that's just until we can implement some smarter long term solution.

    Minimum Fees

    $0.01 is a significant fee in places like Venezuela. If our network can be spammed that easily, then maybe we need to scale better. I don't think we should be able to decide a minimum fee. Shouldn't current network congestion be a deciding factor?

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

    @strophy Ok, fair enough. That question can be skipped, then.

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

    Hm... I didn't get that from the previous response. It never states that Evolution is a prerequisite for InstantSend in mobile wallets, just that ChainLocks and Chained InstantSend are. So that would mean there is no technical limitation to implementing PrivateSend into current mobile wallets...

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

    Well, partially. I have seen that answer before, but I actually wanted to find out if we'll have to wait for DashPay before we get PrivateSend on mobile wallets, or can we have it integrated before full Evolution rollout? Ryan himself said that they are not related to each other and that you...

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

    I have two questions: Q1: When can we expect PrivateSend to be available on mobile wallets? Q2: Is anyone currently looking into some sort of protocol level implementation of trustless masternode collateral sharing or is it an abandoned idea and it's left to trusted third parties to implement...

    Quantum is here, should we be worried?

    I think we should start talking about this again, because quantum computing threat may be closer than we think, considering that quantum computing power is increasing exponentially, not linearly as traditional computing power does...

    Proposal: Commitment to Improving Funding Model

    I think this is far too vague. I'm sure that we all want to improve the funding model if possible, but without a concrete improvement proposal, I don't see a point to this.

    Cryptocurrencies that have governance.

    That's because most of the people that got into crypto early actually believe that basic income is a bad thing and should be avoided, as it inevitably leads to inflation. That being said, I would like to see at least one crypto that does basic income, but does it right. I still don't see how we...

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    I still like the current logo better. It just looks like it's moving... dashing rather :) The Ogilvy one just seems uninteresting to me.

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    My initial reaction is that I don't like either one, but then I realized that it just may be that I'm too used to the old logo. I'll have to give it some time and try to look at it more objectively.

    why has this months budget pool come down from 6600 to 6100 dash ?

    Can we get Dashpay Card?

    I still don't see why this card is so hyped. This would be useful only in places that have a custom POS system in place to accept it and in that case you can do the same thing with a mobile application as with this card. If we had a Dash POS network in place, we could make a card like this in a...

    Can we get Dashpay Card?

    So, in essence, it's just a paper wallet.

    Can we get Dashpay Card?

    I'm pretty sceptical about that card. There are a lot of issues with card issuers regarding crypto-based debit cards. TenX had all of their cards disabled a few months ago and LitePay had their Litecoin card delayed. Additionally, card issuers are notoriously problematic when privacy based...

    Universal Dividend and Web of Trust for Dashcoin

    I don't think you are doing a good job, really. All your posts sound more like propaganda than like a feasible idea. I'm actually genuinely curious. Let's say you have technical stuff handled and you can make your ideal cryptocurrency. How would it function?

    Universal Dividend and Web of Trust for Dashcoin

    The government has nothing to give. Everything it gives it has to take away from someone else. Every government is just a strong man with a gun, taking money under the threat of force. Unless there is absolute accountability in the spending, I am not in favour of giving any more to the...

    Universal Dividend and Web of Trust for Dashcoin

    Nothing that requires forcing other people to do something or give something of theirs to you is not a right. It's a tyranny.

    Universal Dividend and Web of Trust for Dashcoin

    Please stop using children for pushing your socialist agenda. I can understand arguing for your ideas, but this is just disgusting... Ask people in Venezuela how that "helicopter money" idea of your is working out for them. Taking money from the people that earned it and distributing it...

    Why all the panic? Everything is pretty much on schedule. We need to do things right, not fast. Fixing the issues afterwards would be much more difficult and costly.

    Will mining Dash become profitable again?

    Where did I call miners stupid? You just made a bad investment. It happens. The hash/income disparity will correct itself after some time, it's just a question of when. Dash will function normally with 10% of the current miners or with 10% of the current masternodes. It doesn't care about our...

    Will mining Dash become profitable again?

    Why would Dash die? I don't get why you think Dash is in a war with miners? Dash had exactly zero input in Asic miner manufacturing process and how many miners will be produced and sold. Dash didn't campaign for the miners to go out and buy the Asics, they did that by themselves.

    From where does the Android wallet get the Exchange rates data?

    Good. I think that should be a very high priority, as people, in my experience, use the local fiat valuation in the mobile wallet very often. It needs to be as precise and up to date as possible.

    A new to masternodes

    You don't send your private key anywhere. There is a key that is generated for the MN, but that is not your private key for the wallet. Nothing that could be used to steal your Dash is present on the VPS.

    Should core decide if dash is opensource Evolution or should Mns decide ?

    You really don't get the essence of cryptocurrencies, do you, demo? Creating a copy doesn't accomplish anything by itself. Without the support of the users, the network is a dead thing with no value.

    Should core decide if dash is opensource Evolution or should Mns decide ?

    We can vote on it, certainly, but I will always be for the open source route. It's just what crypto is all about and it also guarantees that many eyes will check the code, poke it and prod it. In the end, that's the best guarantee that some critical vulnerability will not be overlooked.

    Questions about InstantSend behavior in a flooded network

    This is something I was thinking about, too. I would like to hear some official response from the core team. Also, how would increased minimal masternode specs impact this?

    Fixing the transaction fee problem

    I would never support this. One of the basic principles of cryptocurrencies is that what's yours stays yours. Just the idea that there is some mechanism included in the cryptocurrency that would allow for my funds to be confiscated, no matter what the reason is, would make me avoid it at all costs.

    Building the Dash DAO

    I must commend you for the effort that you put into this. I read maybe 25% for now and I have to set aside some more time to go through it all before I can really comment, but you did raise a lot of very important points.

    Donating DASH from the budget to the Venezuelan people

    The issue is their economy which is extremely inefficient and the fact that their country is broke. The government then prints money so they can pay the salaries and other things (and they have almost no private sector, so everyone is dependant on those payouts) and that inflates the prices...
