    Animated DASH Blockchain Visualizer

    Hey guys, This is my pet project to visualize the DASH blockchain. https://gilemon.com:8080/static/BlockchainVisualizer.html Here is a quick infographic timeline I made with it. This was developed as a proof of concept to have some simple animation to show to the media as part of the...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Yes, I have some flexibility as long as it stays within the boundaries of the financial risk I agreed to take submitting this proposal. We have been negotiating leasing prices with several telecom companies. They greatly vary depending on the technical solution (band, link budget, footprint)...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    That's not what is described in the actual proposal. We originally planned to cover Asia + Australia (from India to Hawaii). You can see the exact footprint in the pdf (Appendix C – Demonstration Phase Coverage) We chose this for the demonstration phase as it's covering the most populated...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Thanks a lot for the support Stan. This is much appreciated as I’m surprised to see so much rejection on this proposal. I truly can’t explain why this is creating so much hard reactions? For the scaling concern and as the proposal submission platform doesn’t allow me to change the payment terms...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    To me, the questions from @UdjinM6 and @codablock originate from their concern about the price of leasing satellite bandwidth, which then turns into technical limitation: low bandwidth and reception only. The price for 512 kbps broadcast over Asia is detailed in the pdf. This will already allow...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Indeed, that's why Outernet, which inspired me for this proposal, is such an important project. They are already working very hard on your concern by broadcasting vital information to these areas where free knowledge is a scarce commodity. This kind of successful initiatives help a lot to reduce...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    The proposal is live here: https://www.dashcentral.org/p/DASH-Satellites-Demonstration You can check the 512 kbps C-Band lease price for full Asia coverage in Appendix B - Financial details of the full pdf version here...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Consider a Western Union kind of scenario. The granddaughter is called Carol and she works hard in a developed country to support her grandparents. Her grandma is called Alice and she lives in a small village in Papua New Guinea with no internet access. So, Alice needs to go the closest city to...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Because SPV is an elegant solution to mitigate infrastructure constraints (network and storage) at the application layer. We are discussing for the budget system to enable laying the foundation for mitigating these constraints at the physical layer. This alternative source can be used for the...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Yes, end users who wants to send transactions would connect to the ground stations via their uplink with satellite. For this they would need a block upconverter (BUC). SPV security is at 4:46

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    To my understanding when adoption starts to rise, the budget will also increase and we can scale the bandwidth accordingly. When this happens, DASH will already have the infrastructure in place. This will be an optimum return on investment as the price of bandwidth decrease with time (LEO...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    That's great you're starting this discussion as your are raising very important questions about the bandwidth requirement. It's truly much appreciated that you're stepping in the nuts and bolts of this complexe undertaking. Yes and indeed we are currently looking into 64kbits/s for C-Band and...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    Thanks for putting some thoughts into the possible use cases. I'm excited to look at all the doors that this new information pipeline can open for MN applications and the rest of the network. As I have mentioned, I am working on finalizing a detailed estimate of the proposal I have posted. I am...

    Streaming the Dash Blockchain to the whole Planet from Geosynchronous Satellites

    How about beaming the live blockchain around the World using satellite services that would provide free access to the DASH network? Let me give you an example to illustrate how it could work: Alice is a prominent mountain guide. She spends most of her time above the timberline with no...
