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.
The current understanding is two-fold.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.
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?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.
