Disliking a thing does not make it stop being true. You just look like an idiot.

Disliking a thing because it is true, reaches into delusion.

A project guided by delusion is doomed.

Those who avoid reality because they don't like it, cannot help but be delusional. The longer they maintain and defend their delusion, the harder it becomes to get back on track, and the more likely the echo chamber is to become chronic.

DASH crossed the point of chronic, self-assured delusion with outright malice directed toward any question, much less critique, 18 months ago.

DASH appears to be abandoning or undermining every one of its own features which made it uniquely useful. Any direct inquiry about the future of MN security, IX, or DS is ignored, or the response so heavily qualified that it has no meaning, from a source not in a position to comment with authority.

A simple "Yes, we're keeping and improving upon all of the above," is an easy way to lay the self-induced FUD to rest. But, such a simple statement never comes...

What are the plans for IX?

What are the plans for DS?

What are the plans for MN protection and MN blinding?

What happened to the dust/dead change fix?

You can get mad and say I'm a meanie-face poopie-head because I ask real questions and don't let deflection slide, but it looks worse every time you do it. Softball yes-man ego-stroking nonsense from snowflakes might bloat your heads, but the industry won't let you live on it... This increasingly slippery behavior doesn't look good and robs confidence in the project.

You're the ones who bound your budget to the market cap. You damn well better start caring about the actions, and inactions, which are undermining it.

Maybe your fanboys in the echo chamber make you feel good by mocking me, but the rest of the market agrees with me. I'm trying to help you see this, but you want to play snowflake instead...

The ability to collect likes or dislikes from a crowd of jackasses is no metric of competence or accuracy.

Why am I here?
Exactly. Your posting activity indicates an unhealthy obsession with this project and lack of real world interactions. Combined with the extremely irritating, disruptive and downright braindead nature of your "contributions" to this forum I strongly suggest you seek medical and/or psychological counsel to get your life back on track or what's left of it.

I sincerely mean it when I say: Please leave and never come back.

we have had some great news coming out everywhere.
Dash is #13 again in coinmarketcap.
As long @amanda_b_johnson cares only for the first 12 coins, we risk she loses her interest in Dash.
This is bad news, not great news!
What are the great news you are talking about?

Really...coinmarketcap is your gauge of success? You need to re evaluate why you are in crypto...and why you are in DASH. Everything we do you bitch about...so here's a suggestion, leave this community and find one that aligns with your views. You keep this up and I'm going to suspect that your Icey under a new handle.

My gauge of success is amanda's love. And amanda's love depends on coinmarketcap....She loves only the first 12 coins....

Dash is not being marketed as an investment and there is no enterprise selling it, so there is no way it can be considered a security using the criteria in the Howey test.
I would like to some clarification on this please. The following videos by lawyers that specialise in US Securities law appear to be saying if there is a "significant contribution to the running of the network by a single entity" DCG is responsible for Business development, Marketing, Code development, Website maintenance etc which could class DASH having a centralized governing body.




There is also the new proposal for a legal structure which in itself could lead the SEC to consider DASH a security because it is a single entity.

It appears from these videos that if there is a significant contribution to the health of the network by a single entity (e.g. DCG or the Trust/Foundation which is a form of central body) then it could target DASH as being classed as a security.

I have been quite vocal over the last 12 months stating my concerns about the size of the DCG and that we need to consider having separate entities that are responsible for different activities to ensure there is no one single entity such as DCG (or even the proposed trust foundation structure) which could cause DASH to be classed as a security by the SEC.

Has the DCG received legal advice specifically from legal firms that specialise specifically in securities law? Has the DCG obtained legal advice from more than one legal firm that specialises in US securities law?

If the core team doesn’t want to communicate and provide solid updates after 2 years, to ensure their secrets are safe, then eventually investors will start to exit their positions to reduce their risk profile just in case Evolution never shows its face. Hasn’t anyone noticed how much great news we have had yet we continued to drop to #12? Once we drop out of top 20 it’s going to be extremely hard to claw our way back.

At Dash, our goal is to provide people a better way to pay, not to increase the price of the Dash price in relation to other cryptocurrencies. That means focusing on delivering product. While it is true that Dash has dropped in the market cap list, market capitalization as a metric does not fully measure the value of a cryptocurrency the same way as a traditional share.
Do you not smell the cognitive dissonance in this wordplay?

Valuation is valuation. Period.

Market Cap Matters. Not a full measure of value? It is absolute and nothing but the measure of a crypto's value! If you were accomplishing your goal, it'd be increasing, but even since this question was asked, you've dropped another 3 spaces to 15.

I'm not suggesting that you need to focus on hyping up market cap. I'm saying that if you were indeed accomplishing your own stated task, market position, if not raw cap, would be improving. It's not. It's getting worse. Again. Still. You can't make excuses forever. Calling me names won't fix it.

Your bizarre rationalizations and word salad aren't fooling the market. Declaring that gravity isn't really gravity, won't change gravity's mind or anybody's mind with an IQ above 40 (it might work on democrats and cryptotards)...

Admit that you're going the wrong direction instead of making obnoxious, antithetical excuses. There are at least 6 feedback loops you're either ignoring or making excuses for. <-- I ended that sentence with a proposition

You can't fool reality, even if you can fool the community... You don't get votes from the non-participants that are simply laughing at you. Would you buy into something that 99% of people you mention it to fall out of their chair laughing? That's you.

They're not laughing at you for being inferior, technically. They can't do that because the developers have made DASH the best. The issue is that whenever the market drops a hint that you need to adjust yourself or take advantage of an opportunity, you double-down on making excuses to keep getting it deliberately wrong... It's like talking to a walled-out fat single-mom feminazi complaining that she can't find a good man. Getting crankier and more condescendingly passive-aggressive with every passing day... She doubles-down on the reasons nobody wants her instead of changing her ways or adjusting her attitude, no matter how much feedback she gets. There's always an excuse why it's a flaw in the data or the critic, not her. "How dare you have a problem with my failings! I'm proud to be a dysfunctional unfit mess!" Once you're a 40 year-old town slut, there's nothing you can do to unring that bell. Just throwing out more red flags to guarantee she'll be avoided by any man with an IQ above dirt, all the while deepening her delusion that it's everyone else that is the stupid loser who just can't seem to understand how wonderful she is... It's as if DASH has cloned this behavior and mentality. Never go full "stunning and brave." Getting it wrong can't be fixed by telling us that anyone who doesn't use DASH is a misogynist, racist, sexist, homophobe, beta, poor, etc..

Trying to counter-reject everyone who walks away is not a plan for success. These word salad excuses are precisely that. Even if the intended feedback loops are defective by design, there are other feedback loops that you're ignoring in the hopes that reality will, for no reason, spontaneously conform to your narcissistic delusions.

If you don't adjust this attitude and change course, you're done by Q2.

You don't have to like me. You don't have to like what I say. You can be offended. You can call me names. You can make excuses.

None of this will fix the problem you're headed for.

I'm not a bad guy for warning you that jumping off the roof and flapping your arms will not go well. Here we are, a few years down the road, I was right.

How can you be the best at a thing when you refuse to acknowledge all the hints that you're not?

What are you going to do differently now? What are you going to start doing that you haven't been doing up to now? What are you going to stop doing?

So, you've got nothing but personal attacks, insults, name calling. Didn't even bother to address any of the topical substance... At no point did you say I was wrong in what I've stated, or presented an argument. Pure "Whaaa I'm triggered and I hate you!!!"
