    A service idea - sell premixed Dash

    Hey everyone, I just had an idea for a service that might reach some audience. So, Dash's flagship is the Darksend technology, which allows to mix coins with other users in a trustless fashion while reaching great levels of anonymity. The main difficulty right now is that this process can take...

    v0.11.0 - Darkcoin Core Release

    I also had a similar problem when I updated to the last version. The MN was active and appearing normal on drk.mn, but I didn't receive a payment for five days, so I restarted it and got a payment the next day, then another one three days later... Did you try restarting yours?

    If you used autogen, there should be no need for qmake. Did you check the /src/qt folder? This is where it's supposed to build (while daemon and client are in /src)

    Wallet unlock bug

    Stupid question, but did you remove the brackets when entering the command walletpassphrase <passphrase> <timeout> ? Like walletpassphrase thisismypassphrase 120 and not walletpassphrase <thisismypassphrase> <120>

    Started Wallet to find 207 DRK sent to unknown address

    Do like me: start with the intent of just making a Linux partition, fuck up somewhere and end up wiping Windows. This was three years ago and I haven't been anything but happy ever since!

    Feature - 2 Factor Authentication

    Speaking about securing funds, and in line with a recent post by MaxFangX - https://darkcointalk.org/threads/started-wallet-to-find-207-drk-sent-to-unknown-address.3142/ - I think it would be great to have a message pop up each time darkcoin-qt is launched with a non-encrypted wallet. Something...

    Feature - 2 Factor Authentication

    Except you'll most likely not have to use it more than once a year, depending on the frequency with which you change or lose your mobile devices... still more convenient than paper wallets by an order of magnitude.

    What do you mean, they cannot connect? I haven't extensively tested them but here is what I get when I CPU-mine for the 101 first blocks in regtest mode: ➜ src git:(tree-0.9.3) ✗ ./bitcoin-cli -datadir=../datadir/darkcoil getinfo { "version" : 90300, "protocolversion" : 71000...

    De-centralised exchange?

    I don't think it is that impossible. Check this out: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321228.0, especially "CoinSwaps can happen across chains". Maybe there's some way to implement this kind of mutual transaction locking between different chains...

    Community Masternode Fund for Developers

    Yup. What I meant was that, rather than getting a big, single crowdfunding exercise for discrete projects, an alternative would be that this money could be temporarily put towards a community masternode (CM). The coins obtained through masternode payments could be given directly to the Darkcoin...

    Community Masternode Fund for Developers

    Hey everyone, As you know, the Darkcoin community has been looking for different ways to collect funds for the dev team, for instance: - start some tip-based fundraising: https://darkcointalk.org/threads/drk-team-tips-crowd-funding.2929/ - discuss a percentage of MN payments that would go...

    Could stealth addresses reinforce Darksend+ against sybil attacks?

    OK, so I read more about stealth addresses (SX) after reading from eduffield's post on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/DRKCoin/comments/2lnauo/can_we_get_stealth_addresses_implemented_in_drk/clyea3j Here is a detailed breakdown on the SX process by one of the vertcoin devs (the full thread is...

    Darksend technical diskussion - anonymity, liquidity, improvements

    How about porting stealth addresses (SX) from vertcoin's recently open-sourced code and combine them with Darksend? Two results: 1/ impossibility to trace back the coins to the source, so no reason to run rogue liquidity providers to gain information by monitoring DS transactions 2/...

    Could stealth addresses reinforce Darksend+ against sybil attacks?

    Looks like the Vertcoin implementation is among the July 1st pushes on https://github.com/vertcoin/vertcoin/compare/litecoin-project:master-0.8...master-0.8, so it should be possible to reproduce their modifications to litecoin core quite easily. Still, the dev team might want to come with an...

    Could stealth addresses reinforce Darksend+ against sybil attacks?

    Hey everyone, As a disclaimer, I'd like to say that I've always been pretty skeptical regarding stealth addresses, especially when some guy started to ask for it to be implemented for Darkcoin a few days ago on Reddit. Now, I still believe in the higher degree of anonymity offered by...

    TAO'S MASTERNODE SETUP GUIDE FOR DUMMIES (UPDATE GUIDE UPDATED FOR 13.0)

    I'm considering to change the location of my VPS, by staying with Vultr but choosing another city in the world. Is there an easy way to restart the masternode from another server (different IP, etc.)? In particular, can I keep the same wallet.dat? Thanks again for your guide, Tao, and to...

    Darksend Liquidity Provider - v0.10.16.4

    Your point is invalid. We're not talking about greed - if the goal was to get richer, of course they would just buy and hold / or speculate another way. What I wanted to demonstrate was that, granted that a bad player (hello NSA!) is willing to spend some money - and even lose money - with the...

    Darksend Liquidity Provider - v0.10.16.4

    The first point actually implied reducing the "1000 static DRK" limit to 950, but with the addition of a mandatory 50 mixing buffer wallet, as you say :) I just mentioned the first point with 950 because I think that 1000 DRK is a nice number that is easier to visualise as a minimum investment...

    Darksend Liquidity Provider - v0.10.16.4

    Agreed. In a perfect world, I would just want masternodes to sign the mixing transactions and only mix my coins with other users that also really want their coins mixed. However, do you really think that at each block, i.e. every 2.5 minutes, hundreds of people will want to mix their coins? Or...

    Internet catastrophe, Masternodes to the rescue?

    I don't understand. Does the local masternode have access to the internet? (I guess not, else the location wouldn't be isolated) Because if it doesn't, I really don't see how it could guess that B spent the coins before A initiated the transaction.

    Internet catastrophe, Masternodes to the rescue?

    Regardless of how masternodes are programmed and from the point of view of the blockchain, wouldn't such a masternode need the users' private keys in order to re-broadcast their transactions to the rest of the network? Other issue: suppose guy A shares his wallet with his wife B and that they...

    Darksend Liquidity Provider - v0.10.16.4

    Maybe in the future, the definition of Masternodes could be changed to something like: hold 950 DRK' in a single address (vin = 950, and MN disabled if these are moved), possibly in cold storage as it's allowed now and keep 50 DRK in some place that allows mixing with other users Of course the...

    Darkcoin's Instant Transactions could revolutionise cryptotrading

    You're talking about regular stock exchanges, right? Because I made sure to focus my post on cryptotrading, as written in the title :) My point was really that DRK's InstantX extends so much far beyond the mere ability to insta-buy your bread at the bakery in your everyday life (I'm actually...

    Darkcoin's Instant Transactions could revolutionise cryptotrading

    In my early days as a crypto-trader, it wasn't rare that I stumbled upon so-called arbitrage opportunities, i.e. the fact that a same asset could be quoted at different prices across different exchanges. For instance, guy A on Cex.io might be willing to sell 52 DRK for 1 BTC while guy B on...

    Enhanced Darkcoin Wallet UI

    I agree it's generally not a good idea to take over a non-finalised work, especially since DRKLord's didn't think someone else would want to work on it, but on a legal point of view, if he's put his code on GitHub, he's basically allowed anyone to fork his repo.

    Enhanced Darkcoin Wallet UI

    At that time, DarkSend wasn't open-sourced yet, so it's quite likely even the wallet UI redesign code was kept private :(

    Darkcoin is more centralized than we think?

    Very right, though I'd like to point out the fact that masternode payments, just like any transaction, are publicly visible. And Darksend or not, masternode owners will always be able to know how much they should have been paid based on the number of generated blocks, and what they actually...

    Darkcoin is more centralized than we think?

    This is just a temporary solution to ensure equal payments to masternode owners until a new voting system is implemented, and was publicly presented in Onyx Release's announcement post (see reference nodes). Also, they have nothing to do with the network's security, and putting them down would...

    TAO'S MASTERNODE SETUP GUIDE FOR DUMMIES (UPDATE GUIDE UPDATED FOR 13.0)
