OK, bottom was not in, pity, but value is there and people are snapping up coins. Dash is the first DeFi, this could be a good chance to get your hands on a high performance node.

I dunno if the recent silkroad seizure is priced in and, besides, one more disaster and bitcoin goes to 10K. Good time to buy but keep some back.

Tremendous short squeeze in play now, good sign the bottom is in if we swiftly refuse this level and return closer to $40.

Dash getting closer to flipping to the positive side with regards Awesome Oscillator (AO), but not there yet.

Bitcoin need more time, is most likely now behind in its cycle compared to certain Altcoins (like Dash).

Since the HPMN discussion was started (September/October), the MN count has been on an uptrend.

a) do you think this is coincidence?
b) would that increase be the cause of this pump?

I have no idea.

The current understanding is two-fold.

  1. Clarity around how Platform will be launched gives confidence in the coin.
  2. Evolution was not priced in the coin, it was assumed it would never launch.
    DCG appear to be ready to deliver however, this has blindsided the market.
  3. MNOs with 3 nodes are buying a few extra Dash to make up 4k for a HPMN.
    MNOs with 7 nodes are accumulating extra Dash for 2 HPMNs.
  4. Seasonally, this is the strongest time of year for Dash through to April.
I guess it was four-fold.

Though I wouldn't call this Evolution at all, more like the start of the end. We were all deceived. In theory, DCG should be the ones to fork, but in practice they will steal the dash brand and all it's users.

I don't think it is quite that bad. Here is how I see it. Running Evo on every node would be very expensive in hosting for the entire network and not add much in the way of decentralisation to the network, in fact the L1 nimble layer could get bogged down with the overhead of the Evolution beast. The L1 chain secures 11 million Dash, but Evo will hold on average something like 30K Dash equivalent in the form of credits 1000:1 to convertible to Dash. If the number of nodes required to secure the chain is anything to go by then it would stand to reason that we employ fewer nodes to service the Evolution L2, wouldn't you agree?

I think you are saying the MN network is already oversubscribed and thus can afford to give up some nodes and shift some of their rewards to HPMNs to cover costs. I disagree. Hosting costs are in dollars and we wouldn't be discussing this if dash was $1500, then we'd all just go bare metal.

So, the question is, how sustainable and how scalable is this? More so while Sam is arguing that low fees - less income - is essential to be competitive against a product without compare. My fear is, like all tax systems, DCG will justify more rewards / votes to keep us "secure".

How to launch Platform securely is the crux of Sam's argument and his only explanation for scaling is sharding, which IIRC he said could take a couple of years, plus other more important things to do in the meantime. At the end of those two years, what incentive would there be to reverse the elitist HPMNs? - none that I see. They have built a product and roadmap to make work for works sake and there are plenty more opportunities to keep this scam going, sucking the life out of basic pleb MNs.

Sorry, I realize I went off-topic but it does all come back to the price of dash.
