    Is PrivateSend sybil resistant?

    The collateral fee which is paid randomly (10% chance) has been reduced from 0.01 to 0.0001 in the last year or so. The cheapness of mixing leads me to think that an attacker could run a lot of mixing clients to become the only mixing participant to some honest mixers. If you are only mixing...

    Should the treasury hire an independent party to test Venezuela merchants?

    That video gives the impression that many of the "Dash accepting merchants" don't actually accept Dash as a payment. In my opinion we should hire an independent party (a journalist?) to go through a random subset of the Dash accepting merchants and report if they can actually accept Dash. This...

    Trading blockchain usernames

    Trading blockchain usernames seems to be made very difficult with the 90 day closing period. The buyer would have to absolutely trust anyone who can close the account. This would mean that an exchange would have to keep a deposited username for 90 days before it can be sold. I propose that we...

    Modify mixing to send denominations of last mixing round to a different wallet?

    Should mixing be modified to allow sending the denominations of last mixing round to a different wallet? Then it would be quite easy to implement PrivateSend functionality in a mobile or hardware wallet. It could work like this: 1) You enable the setting and input your xpub from mobile or...

    Can miners choose to not include mixing transactions in a block?

    Is there any incentive for a miner to include mixing transactions (with 0 fee) in a block? Today I tried sending a transaction with 0 fee and it took like 10 blocks to get the first confirmation but mixing transactions were included in those blocks. Why? And would mixing completely halt if the...

    Can someone help me understand the cluster intersection attack?

    Quote from the blockski paper: "The intuition behind the attack is that outputs mixed in different transactions are often spent together. Thus, when these coins are spent together, we trace each one back to a (potentially large) set of possible address clusters and examine the intersection of...
