    What happened with Bitcart?

    I haven't been active on the forum for a little while, so pardon my ignorance. I just noticed that Bitcart is no longer accepting Dash. What happened with them? Also, I just purchased a Steam gift card using Bitrefill and it worked seamlessly, easily, and fast. Is Bitrefill the preferred Dash...

    PrivateSend messages

    "Submitted to masternode, waiting in queue..." "PrivateSend request incomplete. Session timed out. Will retry..." "PrivateSend is idle" My wallet seems to be mostly just cycling through these messages. When a session times out, does that mean, simply, that the masternode (network?) didn't have...

    Let's talk about Tether

    It has become clear to me that the greatest hazard to all cryptocurrencies, including Dash, is the problem of Tether, and increasing dependence on Tether as a proxy for USD. Tether is worse than fiat and fractional reserve banking when it comes to false promises of fixed value. I'm especially...

    Problem with necroposting in Official Announcements

    Necroposting in the Official Announcements forum is especially problematic when warnings from years ago are being dragged out of the grave. For example, "iOS Wallet Warning!" from 2016 is now on page 1 of Official Announcements. It took me a few minutes of extreme anxiety until I realized it...

    Dash and the Dark Net

    We need to get on top of this meme and make it a win for Dash. Here are talking points: IF Dash is becoming popular on the Dark Net, it is for two reasons: 1. Dash has strong privacy features -- strong privacy protects journalists, human rights activists, and you and me from hackers...

    DDC currency code for Dash

    Dashcoin beat us to DSH as a currency code, but I think DDC is available. It would be nice to be represented by a three-character currency code. For noobs, DDC is dash digital cash.

    Ubuntu chrome extension not recognizing trezor

    This isn't really a Dash issue, but I thought I would ask anyway. I'm trying to start a Trezor wallet on ubuntu using the chrome extension, but the trezor is not being recognized when I plug it into the usb port. I have installed the udev rules per instruction, but still not recognizing.

    Escrow services should be held to a VERY high standard

    The development of escrow services for the Dash Budget system is a very good thing that will help improve the budget process and outcomes. I would like to see several escrow services in competition to provide the best service to MNOs and the Dash community as a whole. Here are the qualities of...

    The Dash Budget is not a venture capital fund

    The Dash Budget makes grants to grow the Dash ecosystem. Even though these grants look like investments, they are not investments. While it makes sense for MNOs to evaluate proposals as if they were investments, ROI is not and should not be a major factor, simply because meaningful ROI is...

    Constrained supply of Dash

    At 7.7 million Dash has by far the lowest amount of circulating supply of all the top tier cryptos. Subtract from that the 4.6 million that is locked up in masternode collateral and you have a hugely constrained supply, relative to the other cryptos. I'm not a trader/speculator so I don't know...

    How should the Dash network be valued?

    So, how should the Dash network be valued? Given the craziness of the Dash price, this seems like an important question. Can Dash's value be judged from any of the data available here?: Is market capitalization meaningful? Is 24 hour volume...

    A simple voting strategy for MNOs

    We need more million-dollar proposals

    It takes an MNO the same amount of time/effort to evaluate a low-value proposal as it does a high-value proposal. Frankly I think we are wasting MNO time and Dash by loading up the budget with a bunch of low-value proposals when we could be making some big swings with the budget. We also need...
