Dear Dash Community Members,

I would like to kindly invite you to the Dash Core Group Q2 Quarterly Call, where we will provide you with the recent updates about the project progress, technology, and business development efforts, made during the last quarter.
We have prepared an update of the work made by DCG, company achievements, and challenges we have faced during Q2.

The call will take place on Thursday, the 22nd of July 2021 at 14:00 UTC.
Link to the Youtube live stream:

In order to make the call shorter, we are going to be more efficient during the reporting part + we are going to respond only to 4 pre-selected questions during the call.
The remaining questions will be answered and published on the forum by the 30th of July 2021 on the forum
Please prepare and submit your questions here or send them directly to me or @strophy.

Thank you,
Robert Wiecko

Hi there!

First, I wanted to say thank you to you and all the DCG members for your hard work. Even though the market is not with us, Dash is advancing well and the project is moving in the right direction. Congrats!

Second, I wanted to ask about a topic that interest many new investors, trust nodes or shared master nodes. I know that Master Nodes owners generally don't like this idea (that it's technically possible) because they believe that it would reduce the amount of money that they receive, but I think they are wrong.

Why? Because people wants stacking, and platforms like Binance are offering it and then using the Dash to low the price and generate profit.
If we, as Dash, offer a way for small investors to participate in shared nodes in a trustless way (maybe even integrated on the mobile wallet), then a lot of people would take their Dash out of exchanges, and the price would be up quickly.

If the price goes up quickly, popularity would rise generating adoption, which would increase the transaction amount, resulting in higher MN rewards.

So my question is... Could we make this happen?

I hope you don't mind if I ask two questions, but if only one then you choose which one.

1. I'm sure this quarterly call will once again claim wallet installs and usage is up, but the elephant in the room that has not been addressed is dash's ranking, currently ranked #65. I understand why coin market cap is such a poor indicator but there is no other independent industry wide metric in the face of the public at large. Is DCG going to continue ignoring this issue?

2. With the recent bitcoin El Salvador announcement, what has DCG done to get a foot in the door? NDAs aside, can DCG confirm they are actively working on this?

Thanks

Interesting..

To summaries: more Dash would be locked up reducing the amount available on exchanges, lowering the amount of Dash in circulation and by consequence increasing the price. Is this what you mean @pozo?

I'm not sure where you're hearing MN owners wouldn't want shared MNs because it would hurt their own income, I've never heard anything other than support for shared MNs along with acceptance that Platform takes a higher priority.

And yet another delay of releasing Dash Platform and the DashPay wallet on Dash Mainnet :

What is the point of having a roadmap, if the targets inside that roadmap keeps getting moved forward to the next quarter ?


In the Dash Core Group Q2 Quarterly Call, Ryan Taylor (CEO of Dash Core Group) also announced the departure of Bob Carroll (current CTO of Dash Core Group), i wish him best of luck and congratulations to Quantum Explorer who (as i understand it) will be taking over as interim CTO of Dash Core Group.

You don't understand the nature of software development.

IMHO we're a bit doomed without a competent CTO like Bob Carroll. I don't blame him for leaving. It's the DAO's fault for encouraging the developers to go rogue.

At 1:17:24 QuantumExplorer says that he's "looking forward to making changes that our community informs." Does anyone know what that means?

I think his plans are to be less like an appreciation and more material. He's already been quite active in the Discord and even Andy FREER (your favourite) joined for a heart-to-heart chat in the Thunderdome. Pity you went ahead a got yourself banned for being a vile human being. I hope you improve.

I am going to repost something I wrote here on May 30:

Our journey to the promised land of Evo adoption is not assured. We have to avoid the following pitfalls:

1. Evo is never released. This could happen if some people here succeed in destroying DCG and we no longer have a competent CTO.

2. Evo is released but it's lame. If contact list privacy is not implemented, for example, I would not use Evo nor would I recommend it to anyone.

3. Evo is released, and not lame, but it can't scale. Pasta recently admitted that IS can only handle eighteen transactions per second, so this is a real concern.

4. Evo is released, is not lame, can scale, but it's too late. When central bank digital currencies are rolled out, TPTB may simply ban competing, unauthorized digital currencies. This is not as hard as you might think. They can declare that possession, issuance, mining, trading and transferring crypto-assets is illegal. The Indian government has proposed just such a bill this year. Google and Apple would then remove all unauthorized crypto apps from Android and iOS devices.


* * *

At this point, I would say that pitfall number one is most likely the final resting place for Dash. Andy's Incubator is a Trojan horse whose real purpose is to destroy DCG and take control of core dev. Achieving this goal will be relatively easy given all the allies he's accumulated, and we can see that he's well on his way. But once DCG is gone there will be chaos, and Andy will go down in Dash history as the project's nerdy nemesis.
