It's not just the XMR clowns. Even among general Bitcoiners when someone asks for a private transaction solution the preference is for Monero first, ZCash second and Dash mentioned barely or not at all. I've seen this several times in threads on r/bitcoin, r/btc and r/bitcoinmarkets which is my favorite of the three.The XMR clowns have been using this line for nearly 3 years. You'd think they would have laid the issue to rest by now...
Rules for Radicals: Never go outside of your own peoples' knowledge.Dash's solution works, but is not preferred by the general crypto community at this time.
Well, am not saying they are correct-- but the "PR" on a number of large YOUTUBE video bloggers often repeat the meme that DASH's privacy crypto is not as good as Monero or ZCash-- and they specifically allege that transactions using DASH's privacy can be "followed" or traced-- here is an example of such a claim in this YOUTUBE Vlogger who has a large following-- Roger Ver also said the same thing in one of his YouTube videos---- see YOUTUBE video here:According to whom? Have these advanced tracing measures ever been demonstrated to break Dash's anonymity?
Some time ago, one of our members sent a dollar (I think) to the Monero donation fund to they could pay their poor developers something. And he challenged them to trace or "break" the transaction. And, as I recall, he only used 4 layers of mixing, not 8, which is far far far harder to break.Well, am not saying they are correct-- but the "PR" on a number of large YOUTUBE video bloggers often repeat the meme that DASH's privacy crypto is not as good as Monero or ZCash-- and they specifically allege that transactions using DASH's privacy can be "followed" or traced-- here is an example of such a claim in this YOUTUBE Vlogger who has a large following-- Roger Ver also said the same thing in one of his YouTube videos---- see YOUTUBE video here:
It's pretty common media practice to repeat a lie and call it news.
I'm not sure this is useful. It may just bring out the fakers.There is a proposal in pre-discussion about offering a big fat juicy reward for anyone that can break a privatesend transaction. I am hopeful that it will turn into a full blown proposal this budget cycle. That'll shut their pie hole.
We're hiding all transactions inside a ledger of transactions, by making all transactions look the same.wikipedia said:
IT WOULD BE GREAT IF WE/DASH COULD GET THIS TYPE OF FREE PUBLICITY, SUCH AS MONERO IS SOMEHOW GARNERING, FOR DASH'S PRIVACY ATTRIBUTES: SEE THIS ARTICLE : https://themarketmogul.com/xmr-monero-cryptocurrency/?hvid=Qj5mr
SourceOffchain mixing solutions are always going to be better than any sort of cryptographic functions that are stored on chain. Think about quantum computers, ASIC fabricated specifically made to break said cryptography, etc. When the value being transmitted exceeds the cost of producing such a device it will be done, probably in private by nationstates for the specific purpose of breaking the anonymity.
This was known, address, and a solution created, a long time ago.You must never leave any change when paying with darkmixed coins. Spending any change would break your anonymity.
This is predicated upon the previous falsehood, so it is also a falsehood.The smallest denomination of mixed coins currently is 0.0100001 Dash, which is worth about $2 at the moment. This means on average you pay 0.005 Dash or $1 too much in a darksend transaction that because of 1) you cannot get back as change. This makes darksend transactions impractical for low amounts at the moment. Introducing smaller denominations would help here.
It bloats it a lot less than the cryptographic option.Darkmixing uses many addresses which potentially bloat the blockchain and your wallets.
I've been using hardware wallets on DASH for a while now. I hope this "problem" is never "solved" because it isn't limiting my usability in the slightest... This is an imagined problem of someone desperately trying to make a point that isn't real. You're looking more and more like a troll instead of simply being misinformed... Benefit of the doubt is going to run out real quick...Hardware wallets (currently) do not support dark mixing. Which again limits its usability. z-snark have the same problem and it might be much harder to get support for it on hw wallets. We will see who will be first to solve that.
