    Pre-Proposal: Integrating low-power IoT devices to a dash blockchain

    As for "making bad decisions", assuming this refers to your idea, there was nothing for MNOs to decide on. Put a proposaal out and promote it! But I can already tell you, calling people lazy and stupid won't win you much support.

    Pre-Proposal: Integrating low-power IoT devices to a dash blockchain

    How can the network be sure that you'd actually be able to deliver such a significant project? And why should we trust you that you will, even if you're able?

    Pre-proposal: Marketing - Dash promotion project

    I realize this is probably out of date, still wanted to reply because I find the idea interesting, and also to give others reading this some guidance in preparing good proposals. I do think that it's basically a great idea and I'd play the game with my family. But why so little interest here...

    A better way to calculate the value of dash

    I assume that you'd actually consume the things you buy with DashDirect. I'm not sure how you'd resell your half-eaten Chipotle burrito for full price to make your B) work.

    General DIF Communication and Feedback Thread (2021/2022 cycle)

    I agree more graphics would be nice. But I need to disappoint you: The DIF does not have a marketing team. Maybe one day, if we do a good job and keep growing, we can afford to have one, but that's still a long way off. For now, the DIF is run by six unpaid volunteers with day jobs and...

    A better way to calculate the value of dash

    A user, who spends $200/month with an average savings of 5%, spends $190 out of pocket and saves $10. He does this for a year and he'll have bought $2400 worth of stuff, while paying only $2280 out of pocket and saving $120. $120 out of $2400 is still 5%, not 60%.

    The translation works, but it's a mix of simplified and traditional. So either 达世币投资基金会 (mainland China) or 達世幣投資基金會 (Taiwan, Hong Kong)

    Latest DCG Accountability & Transparency Discussions in Discord & Reddit

    I just posted a response on Discord to a request for feedback. Fits here too: Like many old-timers, I often insist price is not the most important, but since DCG is the largest known regular seller of Dash, they put pressure on the price and should at the very least provide enough value to the...

    2021 DIF Candidate Announcement Thread

    I understand you're really upset. I wasn't really following the Kuva drama and the Dash News defunding, so I'll reserve judgement, although it does look like it was a loss for the community. But in either case, let's tone down the name calling a bit. @xkcd, stand above it, you're better than that!

    2021 DIF Candidate Announcement Thread

    What is the BBC licensing model and why has it failed? Not really familiar with it. > "An almost guaranteed income from the treasury to fund ventures for profitable businesses elsewhere." First let's be careful with the wording. I haven't looked closely at DIF accounting, but normally, the...

    2021 DIF Candidate Announcement Thread

    As if the above post wasn't long enough yet, let me add a few more thoughts. There are voices that call for immediate action from the DIF to support the Dash price, some even going so far as asking the DIF to sell assets and buy Dash. Again, let me refer to my Reddit history on that, you see my...

    2021 DIF Candidate Announcement Thread

    A question came up on Telegram and I'll put the answer here for better visibility: "Thanks! I read yours. It tells about your background and relevant credentials but not what direction you would want the DIF to take; what kind of investments you would push for and the like." Good question. The...

    Pre-proposal: Dash Advisory Board

    Interesting idea. Not sure adding another governance body would really make a difference, but worth exploring. One question: why would you limit it to MNOs? There may be very enthusiastic, valuable and insightful community members who weren't lucky enough to scoop up a masternode in the early...

    Dash Core Group Q3 Quarterly Call - 29.10.2020

    Similar to what others already said: 1) Apparently someone bought 160k views for this "What is the Dash FastPass Network?" video. Was this DCG? What were the costs, target KPIs, and how did it perform? What other marketing activities were executed to support FastPass rollout? 2) What is DCG's...

    "ProTx address does not match local address"

    My confusion was mainly that IP addresses that the MNs insisted on running on didn't match the config files. That was resolved with the restart command. But yes, the two different lists, one ENABLED, one not, added to the confusion.

    Owner vs. Operator etc.

    Very helpful. Thank you! I appreciate you typing this all out for us and I imagine others may have similar questions. This should be incorporated into the documentation, perhaps fleshed out a bit with examples.

    "ProTx address does not match local address"

    Update: Almost embarrassed to admit, I hadn't restarted the MNs yet. I mean I relaunched the software, but hadn't issued the "Start alias" command yet. Did that now and everything resolved itself. The IPs switched back and both MNs are now ENABLED. I lost my spot in line I guess, but at least...

    "ProTx address does not match local address"

    This is very bizzare. I doublechecked masternode.conf on my local machine and dash.conf on the servers. For clarity, this involves two masternodes, let's call them 1 and 2. My local masternode.conf file has lines for MN1 at IP1 with PrivKey1 and CollateralTx1 as well as for MN2 at IP2 with...

    "ProTx address does not match local address"

    Yesterday I already did, all on my local machine: close Dash Core, delete all *.dat files except wallet.dat, relaunch Dash Core. At first, it showed the MN with the correct IP as specified in the masternode.conf file on the My Masternodes tab. Status was MISSING. Then, as it rebuilt various...

    "ProTx address does not match local address"

    The MN is in the DIP3 list. As I wrote, the MN had already been on ENABLED status for a while, both in the DIP3 and the My Masternodes list. Then it went back to SENTINEL_PING_EXPIRED, then to EXPIRED (see Edit 1) on the My Masternodes tab. Now it shows NEW_START_REQUIRED. Such backwards...

    "ProTx address does not match local address"

    Went through the registration procedure and at first everything seemed to have gone fine. No errors and MN showed up in the DIP3 Masternodes tab in Dash Core wallet and showed ENABLED. Great! Went to get something to eat and came back to find "SENTINEL_PING_EXPIRED". Crap! Trying to relaunch...

    Owner vs. Operator etc.

    Thanks, @qwizzie that helps! @strophy, yes, I read that page. It doesn't explain the difference between the two roles very well though. Can you give an example of owner and operator being two different entities? (Something like Crowdnode? But with those fractional "ownerships", isn't Crowdnode...

    v0.13 registration: two MNs, one QT core

    Thanks, very interesting. So I just issue that command multiple times and which key I use with which MN doesn't matter as long as I keep track to always use the same key for the same MN, correct?

    Owner vs. Operator etc.

    I'm not really clear about some of the concepts of the new masternode setup. First, what is the difference between owner and operator? Perhaps that also helps clear up what operatorReward is for. I'd put 100% in there because of course I want all of it. But if not, where else would it go? Also...

    v0.13 registration: two MNs, one QT core

    From that link, it seems I also need a different BLS key pair for each MN? bls generate only creates one. So I just issue that command multiple times and keep track separately which key I use for which MN? What does BLS actually stand for?

    Help with understanding the v0.13 upgrade

    The slash before tmp refers to the root level of your server. So it's not in /home/[username]/.dashcore/tmp but simply /tmp parallel to /home. BTW, a tilde ~ always refers to your user home folder. So ~/tmp would be the same as /home/[username]/tmp.

    I have the same problem (dashd unexpectedly quit).

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

    I'd prefer something to read and skim over at my own pace, rather than having to watch somebody talk for a quarter hour. Why does everything have to be a video nowadays? Make a video when you have something to show. Otherwise, write it down so it's searchable and quotable.
