    BTCPay Server as DASH payment processor

    Hi guys, I've came across the BTCPay Server and it looks pretty good: open-source, self-hosted, 0% middle-man fee, support for BTC and DASH, it uses Bitpay API, so integration should be also easy. Have anyone of you tried it? Does it really support DASH and InstantSend? I've found this...

    Dash link protocol handler (for Firefox)

    Hey guys, I'm using Dash Core v0.14.0.1 and Firefox 68.0.1 on Windows 10. One of the payment processors I use for my DASH payments is CoinPayments.net. When I'm ready to pay the amount it generates a special link for me in the following format: dash:<address>?amount=<amount> Unfortunately...

    OFFICIAL DASH ROADMAP - Version 2.1.1 // Delivery Milestones

    My current understanding is that masternodes will take over the job of the miners in the long run. So, ideally if a non-MN, regular node can't meet the current requirements of the masternodes (collateral, static IP, maximum tx/second, DDoS stress-test, protocol version etc.) they will not get...

    OFFICIAL DASH ROADMAP - Version 2.1.1 // Delivery Milestones

    I agree with @GrandMasterDash that the hard-testing of the MNs is a good idea. I think they should be tested regularly, simulating DDoS attacks or testing their current maximum transaction processing power. The hardware behind the masternode should be irrelevant for the network as long as it...

    Ongoing DDoS attack on masternode network

    As suggested in a previous post, connection rate limiting is a good protection against DDoS attacks for masternodes. UFW supports rate limiting, and it's relatively easy to use: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man8/ufw.8.html To limit the SSH and Dash daemon ports: sudo ufw...

    Ongoing DDoS attack on masternode network

    Thank you @camosoul for the script and the tutorial! I've found two misspellings in the setupiptables.sh: line 14: sudo iptables -A INPUT -m commtrack --ctstate RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT #commtrack -> conntrack line 27: sudo iptables -P INPUT DROP. #DROP. -> DROP And a...

    Dash POS (Point-of-Sale) integration

    First of all, I'm not an POS expert, only a Dash supporter who would like to see it spread to more merchants. I was traveling around, and I started to look for the software solutions that merchants use in restaurants, bars etc. I'm not sure if it's any help for the Core Team, but since the Dash...

    Number of available Masternodes graph

    In case someone else ended up here too after searching for the number of active Dash masternodes, the updated charts are currently here: http://178.254.23.111/~pub/Dash/Dash_Info.html and they can be accessed from the "Masternode"/"Masternode Statistics" menu of this forum.

    How-to compile Dash Evolution and join test net?

    Thanks, this is what I was looking for! It would be even better if it was backed by raw data, because then sites like CoinGecko could indicate the real activity, but those monthly reports are a very good indicators for me of the progress they are making. BTW, here are all the past reports...

    How-to compile Dash Evolution and join test net?

    Thank you, and looking forward to the new roadmap! Sounds good. I don't want to cause too much overhead for the devs, so could you advise who should I contact first? I could imagine a simple stats page with the core team members' commit numbers (including the private repos) using GitHub API...

    How-to compile Dash Evolution and join test net?

    I understand the business incentive behind the lockdown, but are there any places where we can find some data to see that the work is ongoing and on schedule? Is the roadmap on GitHub (https://github.com/dashpay/dash-roadmap) still valid? I have just checked the official GitHub repo of Dash...

    Masternode shares and voting rights

    What do you think, will this 1% increase as Evolution introduces the savings accounts? My understanding is probably wrong, but I thought that savings accounts will work somehow like shared masternodes. Is there a way now (or in Evolution) to prevent the shared node operator to take a vote...

    Masternode shares and voting rights

    I don't think at all that the MNOs are stupid :), and obviously their interest is to keep the network running and Dash prices high. I only wanted to say that it is my understanding, that right now, it is technically possible to start a website, rent a VPS, ask for Dash from different people to...

    X11 info on website is outdated

    Oh, sorry for the late reply, somehow I missed the e-mail indicating that you replied! Thanks a lot for the very detailed answer, it makes sense, and I learned a lot from it. Keep up the good work!

    Masternode shares and voting rights

    I tend to disagree. On one hand you need to trust them with your Dash, which is not optimal at all, but someone could accept the risk of not getting it back in exchange for the profits. My bigger concern is that it is a more serious transfer of power when you let them increase their voting with...

    Masternode shares and voting rights

    Sorry for still hanging on this, but reading http://dashmasternode.org/masternode-shares/ I have the impression, that you actually have to send your Dash to a service provider, the masternode owner. If that's true, then I suppose that service provider will be a fully functional masternode, which...

    X11 info on website is outdated

    I agree, the mining distribution looks healthy and I also think that having a good relationship with a complying miners is a must. They contribute to the Dash network just like the masternode owners and all the users. I'm just watching the Bitcoin Core vs Unlimited debate, and I wondered if...

    X11 info on website is outdated

    The statement about X11 on the website (https://www.dash.org/x11/) is outdated, because there are X11 ASIC miners on the market for more than a year, as far as I know. I think the "ASICs will be much more difficult to make for these algorithms and should take years." sentence is misleading, and...

    Masternode shares and voting rights

    Sorry, that was an improper use of words. Probably a "collection of proof of the holdings" would have been better. I didn't think anyone actually would need/should to give access to his own Dash in any way. Alright, but still, will in this case the masternode have a say in the voting (like a...

    Masternode shares and voting rights

    I've first heard about masternode shares in an interview with Evan Duffield on Dash:Detailed. My impression was that what Evan said is the planned behavior, it's still in the workings so things might have changed already since last November when the interview was. So, if I understand it...

    Verifying Dash Code QT installer's integrity with GnuPG

    Thank you, it worked! For future reference, I needed to also set the keyserver in my case. So to import your key: gpg2.exe --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys BD8DF332 And then to verify the signature of dashcore-0.12.1.3-win64-setup.exe: gpg2.exe --verify SHA256SUMS.asc I got the following...

    Verifying Dash Code QT installer's integrity with GnuPG

    Hi! I'm new to Dash, and I have just downloaded the Dash Core Win/64 installer v12.1.3. I already had GnuPG so I run this in my download folder where my installer and hash files were: gpg2.exe --verify SHA256SUMS.asc And got this: gpg: Signature made 03/02/17 09:57:45 Central Europe Standard...
