Recently I was shocked and dismayed to learn that the network is willing to spend $430,000 giving away D̶a̶s̶h̶ Huobi IOUs for Dash without much of a plan, or a reason for the amount other than the fact that 1000 dash is a 1 followed by 3 zeroes. The description itself declared that .01 to .001 D̶a̶s̶h̶ Huobi IOUs for Dash would be given away per person, and nobody even asked why this estimation spans an order of magnitude. If we're willing to spend $400,000 on giving it away, why not spend 5-10% of that amount to fund a consulting team to investigate the best way to give it away. If that ends up being an exchange airdrop, so be it, but I think we need to be smarter before we dilute EVERYONE's dash by .013%. I mean, Masternodes, this costs you $55.90 each in dilution. Plus you force everyone to give away that much to these people. I get it, you're rich enough where $55.90 doesn't matter to you, and you just care about pumping the price, and if this pumps the price by .013%, its "worth it", but my illustration is that look, its an actual amount of money just for one masternode. Seriously, we can do so much more with this amount of dash. I bet if you gave Amanda B. Johnson $400,000 worth of dash and $30,000 in pay she could raise a hell of a lot more buzz than giving Chinese I̶n̶v̶e̶s̶t̶o̶r̶s̶ traders free easily-convertible-to-btc Huobi Dash IOUs. Please, masternodes, vote down this proposal this month and spend some money to investigate if this is the best bang for the buck first. I can't afford to put up the 5 dash for a proposal to fund a consulting group for this purpose, and I'm not even the most qualified to propose a consulting firm for this purpose, but I'm trying to get a call for action before passing one of the most expensive proposals the network has ever seen, without any real chance of measuring how effective it was, beyond normal price fluctuations.
