    Dash Price Discussion and Dash Shortterm/Longterm Price Trend Speculation

    I guess it depends on how well Dash investors have prepared themselves for this bear market. If investors and miners have put in place fiat reserves (USD / EUR) then in theory they should have no problem to switch to a dash saving pattern, when Dash hits a low price and to switch to a dash...

    Release candidate 4 for use on Dash Testnet has been released 4 days ago, for those interested in either testing Dash release candidates or being interested in getting up to speed with the Dash Testnet progress. It seems there were some stability issues (and bugs) with previous release...

    Dash Core installing

    If you just started a new masternode, it goes through a few phases. First phase is downloading and syncing the blockchain, so it is normal that you see this status. Just check a few hours later to see if its done downloading and syncing the Dash blockchain and if it moved on to another phase. I...

    The stupidity of those who claim that by lowering the proposal fee spam will occur.

    I thought the proposal fee reduction was ment for those smalltime crypto investors, who can't afford the 5 dash proposal fee to launch their own budget proposal. Entities like the DIF and the DTP already have an operational budget, have no problem with the current 5 dash proposal fee in order...

    The stupidity of those who claim that by lowering the proposal fee spam will occur.

    I think lowering the proposal fee these days will do absolutely nothing to our budget system. I believe there will be no increase in number of budget proposals after the 1 dash proposal fee gets implemented on Mainnet (whenever that will be). There was a time i thought differently, but with the...

    I would like some more info why Chris Hough left.

    I am curious about that myself, he was appointed Head of Growth for Dash Core Group in Feb 2022 (so relatively recent). Frankly i did not even know he left. I don't visit Dash Discord anymore, so i could be a bit out of touch with Dash latest developments.

    dashd died multiple times today, VSP claims not their end

    mnowatch.org/dash-stats shows enabled (E) for all my masternodes, i just checked. dashninja.pl on the other hand sometimes finds closed ports with enabled masternodes, even after a next port check. Currently dashninja.pl shows all open ports for my masternodes, so that self cleared at some point.

    dashd died multiple times today, VSP claims not their end

    I noticed a problem with Dash Central yesterday (it could not fetch data from any of my masternodes) and on dashninja.pl there were also a few closed ports on my masternodes. So i ended up doing some Linus updates and rebooting my VPS server. That fixed the Dash Central not being able to fetch...

    Dash Core v18.0.0.0 RC1 Released

    Thank you for utilizing the 'Official Development News and Information' thread of this forum. This is a good way for the Dash community to measure progress on development of not only v.18.0.0.0 (good to see we are following Bitcoin's version numbering now by the way), but also a good way to...

    Dash Trust Protectors Please React!

    It simply means that DTP's will not be stopped requesting information, (n)or will they be stopped accessing that information.

    Maybe this will help : 'DTPs will not be stopped' 'or not permitted to access' ' any information they request.' Pretty clear to me, and i am also not a native english speaker

    This is what kot typed : DTPs will not be stopped or not permitted to access any information they request. This is what you changed his words into into : DTPs will not be permitted to access any information they request. Do you see the difference ?

    That is typically xkcd. He makes unfounded allegations, baseless claims and ultimately resorts to highly personal attacks. I have learned a long time ago to just put ignore on people who demonstrate such behavior.

    Dash Trust Protectors Please React!

    I just read the 'full investigation and report' and for me personally i have to conclude that objectivity is severly lacking in this report, it is just a very one-sided support for one of their own Dash Trust Protector members (Mark Mason). For all we know Mark Mason could have written that...

    I understand your position, and the reasons for resigning from Dash Core Group.

    Maybe it is time to reconsider Dash Core Group's current engagement on Dash Discord and instead shift its engagement back to this dash.org/forum. From a marketing perspective Discord does not have a great outreach and is also not very open nor easily accessible. Use the official announcements...

    DCG Discussion Regarding Allegations & Ryan Taylor Resignation

    I think DCG surplus funds is ment to compensate for a lower Dash price, it is not ment for no DCG compensation funding at all for the next 4 months. I think that DCG surplus will go down a lot more quickly this way, specially if those no votes are not just being used as a way to signal...

    DCG Discussion Regarding Allegations & Ryan Taylor Resignation

    Makes even less sense. I am using the previous budget propsal stats to predict the number of outstanding votes while at the same time showing that some 100 no votes were already downvoting DCG Compensation budget proposals in the past. Excluding three days of voting, just because i am making...

    DCG Discussion Regarding Allegations & Ryan Taylor Resignation

    Since the previous DCG Compensation budget proposal had 844 yes, 115 no votes, and 8 abstains (967 votes in total), I reckon there are still a number of votes outstanding (between 100 and 200 votes) on the current DCG Compensation budget proposal. Also i find it interesting that the no votes...

    About MasterNode requirement

    Lowering the collateral will not necessarily provide more decentralization, as current masternode owners will simply add more ip addresses on their vps to start up more masternodes, thereby creating more centralization. Not to mention making it far more easy for Binance to spin up their own...

    New masternode payout split will create unbalanced incentives

    New masternode payout split will create unbalanced incentives

    Any change in the split of the blockreward between miners, masternodes and the budget has been voted on by masternodes in the past, will there be a decision proposal about this new change to the network ? And is this the only way to implement and distribute the platform fees among masternodes...

    Question about blockchain: Can a full node actually “read” transactions?

    Some of Dash blocks can contain CoinJoin transactions, which makes the reading and understanding of transactions difficult (it obfuscate the publicly viewable link between sender and receiver in transactions).
