    Community Ideas

    great questions @qwizzie :) no, adjusting reward allocation doesn't effect the emission curve. But there could be other issues within that... for example allocating more % to the treasury can have a centralizing effect as it can reduce the market pressure on large DAOs to optimize and...

    "As anybody given any thought to just reducing the ammount of dash created?" Yes of course, this is fundamental to cryptos going back to the birth of Bitcoin. As opposed to fiat currencies, cryptos have predetermined supply curves, so everyone who mines or buys that crypto along the curve is...

    Announcing my departure from Dash Core Group

    Thank you for the support! Lots of future DAPs in mind, right now I think everyone should focus on Core in their final Platform development / release process, with the first DAP being DashPay mobile payments they are finalizing, and let them take time to get that right and secure for mainnet as...

    Announcing my departure from Dash Core Group

    Hi all, Now that the Evo protocol design is pretty much complete and implementations are running on DevNet I feel my main work in Core is done and I met my commitment to Evan that I made back in 2016 to help move Dash beyond raw, hard to use payments to solve a mainstream, usable, scalable and...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    If I can try to break this down in a simpler way: in DAPs BU names will be used to remember a connection you make with a counterparty, within a wallet. Whether that's B2B, B2C or C2C, the purpose will be having a symbol you remember so once you do a single trusted step (a user proves to you...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    Because there's no integrated way to do that trustlessly because DNS is a separate protocol. In other words, I can create http://grandmasterdash.somedap.tld or even http://somedap.tld/grandmasterdash today and claim thats you. Then lets say BU are released and you register that exact name -...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    For an A record to work it needs to be configured in a DNS name server, i.e. there'd need to be some 3rd party bridge between Dash protocol and DNS. If what you're implying is, is it possible to create subdomains per BU name on some domain then yes, e.g. andydark.somedap.tld, and that's one of...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    I don't think increasing the minimum length to 6 would have negative effects at launch (even though I don't agree that shorter names have a higher intrinsic value and even if they do the Name market can resolve that). And if we up the minimum length to 6 it just means the shorter names are not...

    Opinion on DIP5-BlockchainUsernamePricingModel

    For further information, I’ll post the bullet points on BU name requirements from a recent presentation I did internally. This is background info & design rationale on the public DIP 0005 content so it’s nothing new but might help provide more information: Blockchain User requirements...

    What's Going on at Dash?

    Hi there, I'm assuming the new position of Chief Architect. This is because i'm probably the person who spends most of their time on protocol design; internally improvements to the protocol follow our DIP process and many different devs are involved so I don't get a special pass to push...

    Pre-Proposal - Visual Identity

    Additional Network Layers and Governance v3

    Yep remember though that DashCentral is just a frontend to the governance system which is p2p itself. I guess there's not many alternative frontends because a) the gov system internals are pretty esoteric and b) DashCentral is a really good / usable site so high bar / lot of work to compete...

    Additional Network Layers and Governance v3

    thanks - like some comments above, DashCentral is an app that reads governance data from fullnodes and provides UIs for writing governance data via fullnodes, i.e. it's not part of the Dash protocol. Likewise your proposed implementation isn't within the Dash protocol but a layer to make it...

    Roadmap dates already innacurate?

    Hi @Stealth923 The dates we give out are estimates because it's pretty hard to know the future of any release cycle especially with rolling out onto a live P2P / Crypto based software. Right now we have 2 releases that are running late (DashCore 12.2 upgrade to 2MB blocks and Dash CoPay Wallet...

    Temporary disabling of InstandSend due to potential quorum exploit method

    Hi everyone, We'd like to inform you that with help from the community, we have discovered a potential exploit in the current InstantSend implementation which provides the chance for an attacker with 6 or more Masternodes to dominate an InstantSend quorum by brute forcing collateral transaction...

    Dash Core Team Q2 2017 Summary Call

    •From oaxaca: Can somebody on the call explain the new, upcoming PrivateSend methodology? This has been posted already - the underlying mechanisms are the same (which provides the best balance of usability / privacy) but it's mainly the user experience and speed that is improved (e.g. by moving...

    Introducing Dash Improvement Proposals, starting with 2MB Block implementation

    Hi everyone, I'm pleased to announce the publication of our first Dash Improvement Proposal, aka DIP, related to the initial scaling of the network to 2MB blocks that was agreed by a network vote last year: https://github.com/dashpay/dips/blob/master/dip-0001.md Modelled on the Bitcoin BIPs...

    Will Dash Evloution be Shoppable?

    shoppable content would be on the merchant side. merchants can use DAPI to list products so they could pull the info out like that. but an API can't be shoppable..unless you have a different meaning. BTW welcome to Dash Forum and I never received any emails from you Andy

    What is up with the CoPay wallet?

    no that's not really the case that we want non-technical masternode operators directly - if they're non technical they should employ someone to do it for them. the reason is a large part of the roadmap is changing Dash's composition so the P2P network (hosted on masternodes) becomes the...

    What is up with the CoPay wallet?

    Yep this is exactly right. Going back to the Evo goals, it's a network where high-power nodes provide a decentralized API 'backend' to a mainstream userbase capable of 100s of millions of users - those user's aren't expected to use a fullnode so they need an easy to use DAPI wallet that's SPV...

    How To Enable On-Chain Scaling - Evan Duffield

    Why is On-chain scaling better than off-chain ? Is it about security, prevent double spending, speed or what ? **Because off-chain tx are really unrelated to the currency and don't convey the benefits to users that the crypto is designed to deliver - Coinbase transfers between users are...

    How To Enable On-Chain Scaling - Evan Duffield

    in a nutshell, security comes from expenditure. in POS the expenditure is ahead of time, and can last for years. that's less secure than spending new money (resources) on each new block, because I guess you are cumulatively adding security (cost) to the chain in competition with others at that...
