    I won't disagree with your analysis, but my only question is, why it can't be open source?

    Their house, their rules. I get and approve of, the benefits of open source projects. But, I also get, and approve of proprietary for-profit ventures. In an open, robust competitive ecosystem, both products can do great things and complement each other. For example, Linux does what it does very very well. And, Microsoft and Apple (love them or hate them) have been pretty successful at the private, proprietary for-profit angle. Linux makes Microsoft and Apple better and more competitive. Apple and Microsoft make Linux better.

    Would the world be better off with just Apple? Or just Linux?

    Imo, the world would be a much better place if EVERYTHING was open source. I haven't used MS for many many years and the recent WannaCry virus just re-enforces everything I came to hate about them.

    Anyway, I don't discount your other points.

    Perhaps the OP would like to comment about their choice of closed source.

    Breaking news from the proposal owner, and I quote,

    "We decided to open source part of the solution since it was so much wanted from the community. If the proposal wont get accepted we would very likely not implement DASH. I hope you see the value and reach we can have with this project."


    Apparently, this honest to God open democracy thing works.

    And that most definitely gets my vote! Well done. I just hope we can get the remaining votes in time.

    Hey I apologize for the missing updates. I will update you more often on the project status in the future. Currently we still have some development and testing to do in order to publish this to production. We experienced some delays due to other projects in the pipeline. I can say with certain confidence that Dash will be live on GateHub by the end of August or sooner.

    i love ripple technology and believe in its future. I have doubts about ripple as a payment method. It's hard to justify its valuation.

    Still great for dash to have this deal done.

    Speed is important. The whole industry is in a race to be the first to get widespread recognition. Being first is everything.

    Yes we are ready to go live. DASH integration is complete and tested and we will release it in the following week, now there is just the PR work left to do.

    Like said everything is ready from technology part, but some other important event came before and we need to make a PR and schedule this after. Should be soon out within days now. I am sorry for the delays but the technology is ready for already 3 weeks now. ASAP

    I don't see anything there, either.

    So much for deadlines/accountability.

    Yes. It would be nice if the proposal system had an exit vote to pay 20% for proposals finished on time.

    Dont disorientate the people. Coĺlecting likes here, where at the same time an alternative idea in another place also collects likes, this does not help governance at all. Because there is not a link between the alternative ideas , neither we can compare them in order to decide which idea is the dominant one.

    You made a comment here, but also please point to the official poll ( which decides about this subject). If you dont do that then you destroy the organization needed for the governence to work and you spread chaos and confusion.
    There should be only one place where the decision is made and this place should be the one and only permanent poll which deals with this specific subject. In the absense of an official poll, let us name the first poll that appeared as the official one .
    Furthermore, whatever new poll is created that deals with the same subject, the second poll should be merged to the first one so that there is always a single active poll that deals with the subject.
    This is how governance works. If you insist of spreading the same info to separate places then people cannot gather all together in a single place, and thus cannot take a community decision..

    Well it seems you can trade Dash on Gatehub now. I had created an account when I first reviewed this project and was able to add Dash today.

    My, what effective name calling....

    Oh, and it appears we are integrated and operational:

    https://www.gatehub.net/gateways/fifth/


    Reports of the Death of Dash have been premature it appears.

    Carry on, have fun, win!

    I find it more amusing than anything. As soon as the name calling and personal attacks start up, I know the actual argument is over and I have won.
