Now you're just pushing the agenda without even reading.
You are absolutely right. DASH should be easy for everyone to use! You shouldn't have to know hardly a damn thing to use it.
But, you can't hire the illiterate, entitled 12 year old janitor to run the transaction server and put him on the board of directors, too.
I think Tante touched upon it a little. This isn't a fire and forget concept. Even if you get it approved, these people will be helpless to manage and maintain it. So, hire somebody to have a maintenance and upgrade service? Deal with hardware failures?
They're better off just throwing their DASH at one of the existing MN share services out there. Run by a competent professional that isn't just looking to vote the blockchain into their own wallet. No hardware outlay... Just send of the DASH and someone fit to do the job will do it.
A solution looking for a problem while porkbarreling the blockchain.
I own 3x Pis and 2x XU4s.
The XU4 only has a 4 WEEK warranty! Are you kidding me? It's doubtful that the Pi2B can even do the job. 12 months down the road. Why turn this into an ASIC problem when one can just, you know, not...
I'm still going to use VPSes for obvious reasons... Which you seem to carefully not mention. You're looking more like the Pied Piper than someone who innocently doesn't understand DASH.
Hardware MNs are a cute, fun thing for people who are capable. It's for people who want to push what they learned from reading the guides from "competent" to "fucking expert." Those who don't seek that sort of self-improvement should not be voting. They're better off, for the project, and for themselves, using one of the shared masternode services. Home-hosted masternodes are by no means a practical or economical concept. Not to mention, total sabotage of the very backbone of what makes DASH work.
