    China's crackdown, Dash needs to move away from X11

    Long term, a non-issue because renewables and storage infrastructure make it infeasible. Easy enough to monitor consumption when it's lots of direct connections to one big generator but near impossible with lots of different sources and buffers.

    A few questions on data contracts

    Layer one validation methods, can they be used in data contracts, can a valid Dash address be a required field for example? Can a document be editable by more than one identity, for example, if an app had voting as user created documents could the app delete them after the vote? Are there any...

    Dash/EUR on bitcoin.de

    The existing Dash/BTC pair will probably need to see more activity before that can happen. There's hardly ever any activity on there, I've often had the only realistically priced sells on there and rarely had any buyers even when they've slid 10-20% below current prices.

    Dash Core Group Q2 2021 Quarterly Call - 22 July 2021

    I'm not sure where you're hearing MN owners wouldn't want shared MNs because it would hurt their own income, I've never heard anything other than support for shared MNs along with acceptance that Platform takes a higher priority.

    What happened to dash? Be sick?

    Omg, the whole crypto shitshow in a single thread! It's got the price obsession, conspiracy, subterfuge and star of the show, the folks who do all the work getting flamed by self-entitled parasites! There's a screenplay right there, "Crypto, the movie!" and in just 5 posts!

    GUI tool for running Masternode with Trezor

    Libc6 out of date here: dlopen: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.25' not found (required by /tmp/_MEI8Th2Lq/libpython3.8.so.1.0) I'm probable running a too out of date distro to expect up to date software to run at this stage though (ubuntu 16.04).

    Who would feel comfortable posting IP here?

    Your ideas are practically worthless, the value is in implementation. The world is overrun with great ideas, a flooded market that can't be tapped because it usually costs far more to navigate the patent/IP minefield than to actually develop the idea.

    Is mining reasonable in 2021-2023?

    If you're planning on investing in crypto mining then imo the very first step is a renewable energy supply, if you're not getting your electricity extremely cheaply (ie. free) then you're on a road to nowhere. Mining is extremely competitive with big operations investing millions in reducing...

    Hashrate as a reference to price.

    Iirc it was removed, I was checking up on what effects total emission a while ago and I'm fairly sure it was written out and only unallocated budget could effect total emission now. Hope I'm wrong about that because I've long felt our unfixed (but limited) total emission could be an ace up our...

    Hashrate as a reference to price.

    Thanks, interesting to see it being researched in depth. I see they've already addressed altering difficulty adjustment methods to avoid exploits (something Dash addressed from the very start). Do you know of any research on using it as negative feedback, using it as a basis for adjusting...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    Who's this "someone else" you're talking about? I don't know about Geert but that point is the main reason for my opposition, that 10% has never belonged to anyone before. There was no "someone else's money" and my problem is with giving it to MNOs, "vote against spending this and it's yours!"...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    I don't know where you're getting that idea from, voter apathy has been a problem since practically the dawn of civilisation and so far there's been no simple and effective cure for it and nothing that's been discussed so far is an effective solution. If you want to solve that problem it's going...

    Hashrate as a reference to price.

    As mining hardware develops the gains will be smaller and smaller with most gains eventually coming from improvements in IC tech. That means at some point hashrate can be used as a built-in reference to price, not an exact reference but certainly adequate for keeping things like proposal and...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    These figures are a bit more raw and include duplicates. For example, "DCG yes to proposal yes" also includes votes from "MNO no to proposal yes". If there are any figures you'd like to see more clearly defined please ask. ('proposal' is the second round, approving the plan chosen in the first...

    Renaming PrivateSend Discussion - In response to the 2020 Q4 Conference Call

    Simply calling it "Coinjoin" could work, makes it clear that it's no different to what's available for BTC. A while back someone here suggested removing it from the official client (@qwizzie iirc) and letting someone else keep going with it in a port of the official client source. Makes sense...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    It might have stood a chance if it's proposed changes had been discussed on more than just Discord. Both plans would have but I doubt we'd have ended up with two competing proposals in that case, we'd have ended up with just one that would have stood a much better chance of passing. Discord is...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    Those figures speak for themselves, "for" and "against" are fairly close to equal. If the common points in those proposals had even reasonable support then both proposals would've had more "for" than "against". Maybe have a look at the voting history. Those figures suggest most voting was "yes...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    Imho you're in denial over the real reason both those proposals failed. Take a look at the results, neither had strong support in either round of voting. Call that butthurt over the MNO proposal being rejected if you like but it seems obvious to me some aspect of both proposals was disliked and...

    Thank you network, what should the DIF do now?

    I'd say go for it, fill yer boots with Dash! Support for the DIF couldn't be better than it is now and MNs seem to be in general agreement on the importance of building up a warchest incase of rough times ahead. I can't remember what was left over last month but I'm pretty much certain you...

    recovering old seed

    Any addresses showing up? I'd had something similar on testnet a few days ago, balance showed up but was incorrect and a few transactions where missing, corrected it's self after making a transaction. No idea why it did that but sending a few duffs to an address might be worth a try.

    Dash Unit Denominations and Display

    Different units confuses the hell out of me, I'd always like the option to switch views but one huge thing in favour of using mDash as the standard unit is it's searchable. Searches for "Dash" alone are practically useless but "mDash" would be unique.

    Doh... I can't belive how many times I've typed DAoC over the last few days and totally missed something obvious, DAoC. DAOc.

    When asked about Dash's data on Google trends. Google trends of the search term 'Dash' is meaningless. Dash (the crypto) is a tiny fraction of the market of Dash products (and no I don't think this is an issue in the long term). Second... Google search for alts isn't the main driver or any...

    Pre-Proposal: Solving the 'Free Money' treasury problem

    Upping it to 100% of MN rewards would be fine, allowing MNs to get the 10% if they downvote everything is the problem. I can't see any reason why miners should be included in it, they do one job, MNs do another. The only sense I can see there is miners lobbying MNs, gets more discussion going...

    Dash bug?

    It inherited quite a lot of bugs from LTC, that codebase isn't pretty! The bug you're talking about was in the coin emission rate calculations. It was actually a bad patch that addressed the symptoms of the bug (rather than finding and fixing the bug). It caused very high coin emission when...
