    It means that the DASH developers are incompetent and they are unable to put the budget system into the blockchain. So they put the budget system into a normal database, and then they created this watchdog thing in order to fix the multiple databases synchronization problem.

    And of course it also means that the masternode owners are stupids, and they vote in the budget system proposals only to feed the marketeers, the advertisers and the youtube channels, instead of voting in order to pay decent developers to do the job that is required.

    "Inactives": 70103 MNs do not have Sentinel, so the are not "active" for 70206 nodes (but still paid during migration).

    Even though requirements are listed as "minimum" I would consider them as "minimum estimated", so update dashd and if it's not enough to keep up - upgrade hardware. If node is running fine, keep it.

    But even with 1GB ram, 40GB ssd:

    + $134.09/mo https://dash-news.de/dashtv/#value=1000
    - $10/mo 1GB ram, 30GB ssd https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/#droplet
    - $1/mo +10GB ssd https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/#storage
    = +$123/mo

    Can I compile the dashd and make it report that it is version 0.12.1 although it is not? Is that possible?

    Beware.

    This is one of those types of questions, that if you choose not answer it (and as long as you are the main dashd developer) then I will report you here.

    Sure you can, dim-o. You can also watch your custom-built daemon get kicked off the network regularly for not communicating on new protocol standards afterwards.

    And what if I preserve the protocol standards, then add some other "features"? Like ignoring the /dev/random for example.... But still reporting that I am 12.1 version?

    You said that a custom-built deamon will get kicked off the network for not communicating on new protocol standards.

    Are you sure about it? What are those protocol standards that will result the ex-communication of the custom-built deamon, especially if this custom-built deamon reports as 12.1? Can you name those protocol standards?

    And what about this masternode? It reports as version "Unknown", but it is considered as active and nobody has kicked it off the network until now.
