    ~$88~ Whoohoo!! A Massive Congratulations to Evan/the whole DASH Team and US!!

    The fact that we as a community are not flipping out with rollercaoster gifs and partying in the streets is a sign just how much we "get it" and how much more we believe in the DASH system. The system that pays nodes, the system that funds itself, the system that has governance. The way a...

    Head's up: A lot of masternodes have "NEW_START_REQUIRED" as their status

    Hi Guys Not sure if this is related to the DDOS attack, but my wallet shows a rough estimation of 20% of masternodes with "NEW_START_REQUIRED" as their status. There's an increase in "WATCHDOG_EXPIRED" status as well. Just thought I should post something in case someone isn't monitoring their...

    Ongoing DDoS attack on masternode network

    @Sapereaude yea I saw that. You actually posted as I was writing the reply. For those of you who are not technically inclined, take note that my firewall script also filters out a few ip addresses that takes part in the DDOS, which should help keep your masternode ports open for real Dash...

    Ongoing DDoS attack on masternode network

    HI Guys Attached a very nice firewall script that will help you out. It already blocks a few bad behaving IP addresses (I got those bad behaving ip's from Dash's debug log). It limits connections to your SSH and Dash ports (allows only 2 per second). It looks out for bad SYN packets (only some...

    20 thousand Free State Project libertarians... we need a budget proposal for this

    Very happy that the Amanda proposal is one of the spin-off's from this. In the meantime I did resend their organizer a follow up email, no word yet.

    20 thousand Free State Project libertarians... we need a budget proposal for this

    I'm just had to make progress on this and I sent the email exactly like you had it InTheWoods . If this goes forward they can talk to someone there about the finer details, for now we just need a short answer. I'll report back the moment I hear from them.

    Perfect! Thank you for taking the time InTheWoods Guys I'm more than happy to send the email but from many dealings with American companies before, the timezone is an issue here (there's usually a 24 hour delay between replies). Anyone here willing to liaise with them? If not I'll take care...

    Dash Partnership with Transform PR

    This is far from desirable. We screwed-up... myself included. I'm sorry Kot. I'm sorry for complaining. I'm sorry for voting "No". And thank you for what you did. I just didn't know. Please consider that people in the community have seen scams before, and for this reason they will be cautious...

    Voting, PR, Marketing, Budgets: Outsider's View

    I heard Evan say somewhere in a podcast (I think it was the one-on-one interview with Amanda from Daily Decrypt) that they made some calculations and the optimum size of the network should be around 3000 masternodes. We're already past that, which might explain why it isn't marketed that...

    Company Memo: We just fired Michael Terpin!

    OK this is news. I would never cast a vote that will land Evan in trouble, and was quite shocked when you said that. I immediately went to dashwhale.org to look at the original proposal. And sadly, there wasn't a single mention of any contracts being signed. This should have been clearly...

    Proposal: Core Team Xtra Fixed (Don't Burn Unspent Dash!)

    Also, TIL from flare that coins aren't "burnt", they just never come into existence. I also agree with you David, as a young currency we should maximize what we have. It's like my grandfather said: "Let's count ever penny". Let's make every penny work for us.

    Company Memo: We just fired Michael Terpin!

    Thank you for clearing that up flare. My apologies for using that word ("burnt" sounds like such a strong word). The fact that the coins never comes into existence seems to be good, sound, level-headed monetary policy. Again, the whole Dash system did not fail to impress me. Thank you to...

    Company Memo: We just fired Michael Terpin!

    Thank you lynx That seems perfectly fine. I'm sure masternode owners would vote a proposal "back in" if nothing else is available and wouldn't just let coins burn. I just realised, we have our own little "reddit for money" here. Again thank you to ericsammons for the tool he created.

    2 x MN on 1 Vultr server

    I hope a lot of people don't do this, because the whole point of running a masternode is to make the network stronger. Each 1000 dash pays more than enough to cover a full VPS. I therefore run VPSs in separate countries. I have one node in London, and another in Switzerland. Running a whole...

    Company Memo: We just fired Michael Terpin!

    To further clarify my statement, I did understand right from the beginning that the unspent part of the budget is burnt, however, in the way that Sapereaude phrased it, it seemed like funds for that specific proposal would get burnt anyway. Evan very much impressed me with the logical way he put...

    Evolution - Dashdrive Discussion

    Unleashing the full potential of Masternodes

    I don't think (also from limited knowledge) that it will work like that. The Evolution API will give you very specific and focussed endpoints. I think Ethereum is more geared towards "decentralized cloud and computing allowing 3rd parties to develop apps running on that decentralized network"...
