    Transform PR project closure report

    Thanks for a well written summary of the project activities and outcomes. Sounds like all-in-all it was very worthwhile.

    New “Getting Started” Section for Newcomers

    That is great. So glad to be seeing some outreach for regular folk rather than just more techfest.

    Official Newcomer Introductory Video Release

    I was somewhat concerned that the extraordinary build-up and long wait for the release of this video could have created too high expectations and it would be a let down when it was finally finished. But I'm glad to see that it's lived up to the expectations of providing a succinct and simple...

    DASH Strategy Update

    GreyGhost both of your posts are truly excellent and I can see you've taken considerable time and thought with the ideas. I agree totally with you that the notions of "mass adoption" really are pie in the sky at this early stage. We've seen so many conversations here and on BCT about the...

    DASH Strategy Update

    That's a good update Evan, Thank you. Like GreyGhost has mentioned above, I too am somewhat dubious of what a 'media campaign' might entail (i.e. how orderly, effective and appropriate it will be). I think this is the one area we've not done terribly well with. Dash should be far more widely...

    V12 Testing Thread

    Outstanding Evan! So much work I can see has been done. Re this: Does this mean a proposal only needs to have a 10% of MN's voting Yea to get up and start being paid, or are you saying that only 10% of MNs need to vote and within that 10% as long as there is more than 50% 'Yea' (so more than...

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    Thanks for your reply Solarminer. Yes I agree the situation's not the same when considering masternode voters of a game-changing digital currency versus the general public; they're worlds away from each other really. But the apathy thing will still be an issue. I think your idea on withholding...

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    Hello everyone I'm sorry to be putting forward a less-than-flattering commentary on this whole process of voting via our MNs but, as theoretically pure and balanced as it is, I can't see this working. In many democracies around the world, when there's a referendum on some critical issue that...

    Vote: Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    I don't. This is not a FinCEN area of jurisdiction as Dash isn't 'money' per se. And there's been no issuing of stock/equities. While, of course, all that may change in the future, at the moment, I don't believe what's being proferred here contains anything that would be cause for concern...

    Announcing the Project Management and Delivery Excellence Initiative

    Yes coingun. And what good posts they are too (I just reread them)! There are many intelligent people here in this community. I think when people spend time articulating issues and putting forward ideas on how we could think about those issues to achieve an improvement, it does "get in" to...

    Announcing the Project Management and Delivery Excellence Initiative

    Hallelujah! This is SOOOO what I've been wanting to hear. Having worked in IT for many years on large scale projects with teams spread across widely dispersed geographical areas and specialist domains of knowledge, initiatives like DASH absolutely need advanced collaboration methods like Scrum...

    Dashpay.io Goes Multilingual

    That looks like an incredibly comprehensive piece of work Fernando. Tremendous! Congratulations to you and the other team members involved in these translations. This reminds me of similar programs I've been involved in at software companies I've worked for or been associated with. It will help...

    Self-sustainable Decentralized Governance by Blockchain

    Quite a brilliant plan Evan, with the potential to transform the entire way we think about decision making and organisational management. One area that I'm keen to hear yours and other people's views on, is how an approach like this will handle the fact that, unlike say elections of politicians...

    11.2 - Dash Release

    My MN is at 5 days 10 hours so I just did the very same thing (sort on 'last paid') and was surprised to see there are so many more above me with longer periods where they haven't been paid. Evan, I know we're still in beta but (and I'd expect quite a few people are feeling this way) I'm...

    11.2 - Dash Release

    At huge risk to my own mental well-being I'll attempt to respond to you camosoul. I think you've spent far too much time talking to yourself and seeing/thinking-of nothing but stupidity in your fellow man to have a reasonable handle on how technological and economic revolution works "The smart...

    Oh Camo, gosh I've missed your rants! It's just not the same over on BCT without you! I can just imagine you presenting your "marketing" plan to a fortune 500 company for some mainstream product they sell: "Hey you!. Yes you. Regular clueless fucktard person. You haven't got a fucking clue...

    The Rolling Thread :) (go to end for newest posts)

    Looks like we hit the bottom and we're bouncing now. Some nice green candles on Cryptsy and Bitfinex (but, as always, it could be a dead cat so be careful everyone ...!)

    The Rolling Thread :) (go to end for newest posts)

    You're up very very late Tante! (or very very early perhaps?) 1:18am in Washington? I'm here down under in Sydney. Perhaps this is that "dead" time you spoke of recently as the East Coast people are well and truly asleep. It probably explains why trade is so dead around this time too.

    The Rolling Thread :) (go to end for newest posts)

    Perhaps we're seeing the beginnings of an upward trend again. Certainly there's not much for sale by comparison to those wanting to buy (on Bitfinex at least; similar situation on Cryptsy).

    11.2 - Dash Release

    Hey Everyone I upgraded my single MN shortly after the release and haven't had a single hiccup or issue. In fact, I was around 3.5 days into a payment cycle and just assumed I'd be back at the start of the cycle as a result of the migration to the dashd daemon, but the dashninja page still...

    11.2 - Dash Release

    Wow! A very smooth update. Congratulations everyone and thank you all for your hard work on this. I followed your instructions Evan on changing \darkcoin to \dash on both my Win machine and my VPS (and the .conf files too) and everything worked perfectly. My MN came up again using dashd without...

    Core Developer Contest and Sponsor Program

    Another brilliant idea! Great way to incentivize devs and also offer a mechanism for people to donate their MN earnings to support Dash's ongoing development.

    Official Statement On Rebranding To Dash

    In addition Evan, I really think you need to make a follow-up release statement about the scalability plans as it was completely lost in all the noise and acrimony around the name change. This is an extraordinarily important announcement.

    Official Statement On Rebranding To Dash

    I really appreciate your leadership on this Evan. it is very difficult. There will always be people upset and people who feel left out, but that's just how these things roll. I think the future has just become infinitely more positive and the potential-for-success factor has gone up...

    Rebranding Followup

    Duffman you have some interesting points in your post but with this: ....goodness; I think you have the wrong idea altogether. This whole discussion is not about a group of investors who are "cowards and idiots" and you needing to "stick (your) chest out proudly" to demonstrate you're not...

    Rebranding and Scalability

    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Thank goodness! I have been SOOOOOOOO troubled by the name Darkcoin it's almost had me pulling the pin on any further involvement. Down here in Australia there is very little understanding of the need for anonymity and things like Silk Road and dark markets...

    [ANN] Darkcoin | Darkcoin.io | Creators of x-11, Darksend, DGW, and InstantX

    Interesting post but I'm not sure what you mean by this bit: What restrictions do blockchains create in terms of trading and price pumping? We've seen how easily the crypto market can be moved by relatively small sums of money being thrown at a coin. It appears like crypto is (currently) way...
