I think Dash needs some changes

Just a quick update with regards to Dash Trustless Masternode Shares :

According latest Platform & Core Dev Update (24st of Jan 2023), Dash Trustless Masternode Shares will not be included in Dash Core v20 and is currently just in conceptual phase (no real work done by DCG developers).

Dash Core v20 will mainly contain a hard fork to change the MN reward logic for HPMN's from 4x MN rewards from Dash Main Blockchain (L1)
to 75% of the MN rewards from the Platform Chain (L2 / Credits) and 25% from Dash Main Blockchain (L1).

Hopefully Dash Trustless Masternode Shares will make it to Dash Core v21, although there is some unclarity with that as well. Dash Core team basically put Trustless Masternode Shares in the backlog (list of things to do after Platform release), which contradicts with Sam last year specifically mentioning Trustless Masternode Shares would be either in Dash Core v20 (because supposedly there was work done on it already) or in the unlikely event of Trustless Masternode Shares not getting merged in Dash Core v20, it would be included in Dash Core v21. So here is hoping Trustless Masternode Shares does make it to Dash Core v21.

On a different topic :

What i would like to know is if anything has been done with the work that Patrick Quinn (former interim-CEO of DCG) did during his time as interim CEO of DCG.
I seem to recall he integrated or worked on integrating some kind of planning tool for DCG, that would allow DCG to make better development projections / better delivery schedule / get more control on the development side of things and i think Patrick also worked on improving or clarifying the Dash Roadmap ? Is DCG actively using that now ? To this date the Dash Radmap still seems outdated for 2023 (https://www.dash.org/roadmap/)

Update : i found Patrick's Scorecard on Reddit (www.reddit.com/r/dashpay/comments/yg7dvj/the_90_day_ceo_scorecard_for_patrick_quinn_and/)

So he implemented this planning tool for DCG :

For the first time at DCG, I assisted in implementing a purpose-built, data-driven planning tool (Gantt-based), to track dependencies, resource allocation, constraints, hidden complexities, etc.
Which unfortunetely does not seem to help with the DCG delivery schedule at all.
Also after three months (the Reddit thread was from three months ago) the Dash Roadmap is still not complete. Will we only get a new updated Dash Roadmap after Platform launch on Mainnet ? What is DCG objective here ?

Watching DCG and Co kick the simplest of proposals, such as putting updates onto the same rails as proposals... next they will reject fractional voting which is even more stupidly simple to implement. And you know what? - the proposal for updates was sitting on the forums for 14 days without a SINGLE COMMENT FROM DCG. The fractional voting proposal is already 15 days without any comments from DCG. But hey, someone somewhere keeps saving their ass.

No one has the balls to de-fund DCG, keep falling for the same shit about Platform being imminent. Frankly, I couldn't give a damn if they launch it or not, it's a big pile of shit anyway. In the same way Thorchain constantly has halts, so too will dash. Nor do I trust that dash credits to dash will survive hacks on a Proof of Shit chain.

This is why I've been selling dash and also why I will keep submitting proposals. Throwing money at proposals for the simplest of modifications to prove how fucking lame they are.

Let's have a competition, who can suggest the simplest of proposals that actually brings value to the network. I know it's only one dash to submit but nevertheless I will fund the best ideas. I either sell dash or get rid of it in proposals fees. Honestly, go to zero and I just couldn't care less. It is my hope that others may follow this initiative by submitting good honest proposals, that we may see how lame DCG is.

Whether it's mission creep or unexpected problems. Whether it's updates to existing features or the addition and complication of new features, Platform has many more YEARS of work ahead of them. Just how many years will they keep this scam going, perpetually "too busy" to do anything else.

Marine should have the opportunity to build a marketing team but her wings are severely clipped from a lack of budget.

Just no wonder why Chris Hough couldn't stick around, probably had his wings clipped too... or perhaps better to say a straight jacket.

And then we have the beloved Trust Protectors that never intervened to stop HPMNs. Already DCG has converted their "poll proposal" into code in anticipation of the final takeover.

Or shall we point out that the Trust Protectors run to Joel of all people to host an AMA! No wonder dash is so fucked, why can't they host an AMA themselves?

The kind of changes that need to happen will likely never happen until we can completely rid the network of all the old guard. Including TPs that insist on giving DCG BJs.

There is a last hope that I honestly concede will never happen. That is masternodes not upgrading to v19, but they will of course.

Such a pity the SEC will never go after Sam for being the defacto dictator with his forced upgrades and Sporks.

@GrandMasterDash
Apart from Sam, can you see that it is you, who wants to be a dictator and have the project and network going your way?
YES, because over the years so much of what I said was ignored and now I feel vindicated. Where would dash of been if someone had actually listened and made the necessary changes. Equally, Taylor's vision was so at odds with my own and we can say he did in fact play the role of dictator. Where is he now? Where is that dictator that was so god-damn righteous about getting in bed with the enemy? NONE of what was preached ever amounted to anything.

Can we agree that Dash is meant to be Digital Cash? That being the case, shouldn't dash-cash literally be on every exchange and DEX? Should it not be the base currency on which all other activities ride? Despite dash being on many exchanges it is FAR from being universally accepted. You know what is universally accepted? - bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin. Apparently low fees was not the killer app. And don't even get me started on "instant send", dash can't even retain that functionality on Kucoin let alone tempt all other exchanges to accept it. And this is the most important part... if you can't even get Instant Send accepted at most exchanges then WTF chance is there to get Platform usernames accepted? Ah yes, Platform is going to produce killer apps! lolol

It is sad to say, dash literally failed it's mission.

If I am "wrong" then who else is trying to change things up? You see, it's one thing to say I am wrong but it's another to actually submit the proposals that will make a difference.
