    Evolution question; DashDrive

    I would like to run a full backup storage server or two if the budget can pay me some DASH. I will run it from a 1Gbps (up to 10Gbps is available here) home fiber connection in Asia with one from the actual physical location while another server thru a VPN at another physical Asian site. All...

    Proposal: Infrastructure - Basic Needs

    That's good to know. When will we see Evolution coming out? I have to admit that I have been very lazy not reading/following the development here recently. After all, my MNs are running happily and stably so why bother to read the forum. But, then I wonder what other altcoins are doing so I did...

    Proposal: Infrastructure - Basic Needs

    Hey, guys. I want to have a discussion about email account for DASH evolution. I remember seeing it requires a ProtonMail account which is fine for the general user. However, I have real concern about using Gmail or ProtonMail. I have been searching for a solution. Personal email server will not...

    Proposal: Infrastructure - Basic Needs

    I did not take part in the discussion. Perhaps, preventing the DDoS attack will be an administrative burden. Protonmail got DDoS attack back in Nov 2015. I think they paid 15 BTC ransom for the first attack. I think we should have something like FlowingMail on our MN network because Gmail is...

    Proposal: Hardware Wallets For Build And Test

    Good proposal. However, if any manufacturer out there is reading this thread, I wish that they make something without a USB or whatsoever connection to a PC. The USB firmware malware could be a concern. Without any connection, it would be nice to have a tiny camera to read a QR code from...

    Say no to three backup servers

    Thanks, Evan. Whatever storage technology the DASH team choose to implement the DASHDrive, please make sure that this storage technology is active-active highly available and horizontally scalable.

    Say no to three backup servers

    We do not need to enforce everyone to have a full copy of the entire DASH drive. But, we can reward MN operators with such capacity so that we do not rely solely on the three official full copies. Perhaps, we can make MNs work like volume manager in traditional sense which decide how many copies...

    Say no to three backup servers

    The hard drives are connected directly through TCP/IP rather than through a SATA or SAS. Each kinetic HDD has an ARM chip with 64 MB cache and 512 MB of RAM. The ARM controls how the data is written. Instead of writing to the media with tracks and sector through the SATA/SAS port by the OS, you...

    Say no to three backup servers

    TanteStefana, have the core developers looked into the Kinetic Open Storage solution? It would be nice to know that the developers had actually considered this approach even if they thought it was not the correct one. Would like to hear their comments on using Kinetic Open Storage and IPFS.

    Say no to three backup servers

    We may have 3500+ masternodes but there may not be 3500+ copies of the data because there are thin provisioning and deduplication in storage. So, I think it makes sense to require every masternode to have a copy but make it possible to do dedup or share storages behind the masternodes one owns...

    Poll: Dash Direction

    Having a choice to be opaque makes the so-called transparent irrelevant.

    Poll: Dash Direction

    It will be difficult to push DASH ATM/Vending/POS forward with anonymity unless you bring anonymity to every other coin. They can ban DASH ATM/Vending/POS for anonymity but they cannot ban all other coins without inherent anonymity. At the end, you shapeshift from our tier-2 network to some...

    Poll: Dash Direction

    Let's provide anonymity to other coins through our tier-2 network. Let's mix other coins with a DAPI multi-cryptocurrency wallet then screw the AML/KYC compliant for everyone.
  14. GermanRed+

    Poll: Dash Direction

    ATMs / Vending / PoS Retail will have all the AML/KYC issues. Gambling / Gaming is not as attractive as being listed in an exchange. A crypto exchange itself is a big casino to many people. So, I think we need a decentralized shapeshift like App on DAPI. Everything else is just meaningless...

    Evolution - Dashdrive Discussion

    It is possible to buy a Xeon-D machine and run it with a 1Gbps fiber at home to host 16+ MNs with 6~8 HDDs. It is really low cost. If someone is willing to pay me some DASH, I could write a guide on how to do this. Give me an offer and I will write it up if the offer is right.

    Evolution - Dashdrive Discussion

    May I suggest that our developers use the Kinetic Open Storage API for the dashdrive? It will save a lot of maintenance for the MN operators. And, it can be expanded easily. That's something really good. Trust me, spend some time to read it before you think it was just a drive connected to the...

    P2P Exchange - Scala developers needed to help with code review and estimates

    It is a way to convert the BTC folks into DASH folks. It is also a profitable business so it does not hurt. After all, why should we limit ourselves to DASH only service with the second tier network? Think of the volume in BTC, it should be profitable. It is more like we are eating their market...

    I guess the man could say it was a pleasure doing business with the kidnapper when he got the discount on ransom. My joke sounds awful. Wish your friends never have that kidnapping experience again.

    Budget Proposal: Hire Bitcoin Core Developer to work for Dash

    That's exactly why I think we will have a DASH second tier network product for those who want to mix their BTC. We have a decentralized solution for them with all their wanted features that would be too hard to implement on their network because their developers cannot even agree on issues like...

    Budget Proposal: Hire Bitcoin Core Developer to work for Dash

    I have some other idea. Why not we somehow use our second tier network for bitcoin mixing as well? I know the dark net is doing it. It does not hurt to provide that bitcoin mixing on a dash MN network if Evan will still call it MN network in a few months. The BTC network can gain its InstantX...

    Perhaps, we can have some volunteer to book the hotel and arrange the flight for the guys who are going to the conference. More like acting as a financial officer, accountant and/or secretary.

    November 2015 Budget Proposal

    I once printed a poster outside the hotel and it wasn't cheap at all. If it is the last minute thing, it is very justifiable. They did not get into my mind. I just think even if it is "pre-mined", it is not the end of DASH. Look at what other altcoins are doing. The only others that caught my...

    At this point one has to acknowledge that buying DASH is throwing money away.

    I think the reported volume on coinmarketcap is wrong for DASH. Does it report the volume on shapeshift? My guess would be no.

    At this point one has to acknowledge that buying DASH is throwing money away.

    I think the whales do not mind the troll. The volume would be better with some troll. If there is no troll, the whales have no excuses to dump at lower price since fewer people are interested in buying at higher price without FUD.

    November 2015 Budget Proposal

    What is the average number of conferences per year? I think it is smaller than 12. Conferences often occur around the same time of the year. I would not go to a conference if I was asked to sleep head to toe but I do agree with you on "avoid overspending" and "find better uses for the funds". It...

    some crap my brain did

    One could possibly run 32 MNs with one single 1Gbps home connection with an Avoton 8-core or better CPU at the current moment. Paying VPS hosts is unnecessary.

    some crap my brain did

    I do like the "everyone can participate" part. Instead of having so many pools that may suddenly have more than 51%, everyone should be able to mine on MN network. But, Evan said that he has solved the 51% problem. Let's wait and see what his solution is first. When will we hear from him on the...

    some crap my brain did

    Not sure if I really understand how it works. But, I have a question. How can you enforce that hash rate cap? It is open source and people can modify the source code and fake a lower hash rate to do evil things behind. Right?

    November 2015 Budget Proposal

    I think it is okay to get a nicer room. They don't go to this kind of conference every month. They are representing the DASH community and it would be embarrassing if we count every cents to be spent in a business trip. So, as long as it is not unreasonably high, they should not seek for the...

    November 2015 Budget Proposal

    I am not against any of these budget items. But, I suddenly think it would be nice and may silence the pre-mine troll if the pre-miners are able to donate to these proposed project account thus reducing the burden of paying from the MN network. I do not have a problem with some fraction of DASH...

    V12 Release

    When zero fee transaction + InstantX works flawlessly without a giant blocksize, DASH is much more attractive than BTC. If you have been using a Bitcoin Core wallet with lower than recommended tx fee, you can tell that it is a pain in the butt. So, I am very looking forward to Evanution. :tongue:
