Thanks very much for the report. It is great to know 12.3 would soon be released. Now getting closer to evolution.Hello Dash Community,
In the spirit of radical transparency: area updates from our bi-weekly management meetings. In this way, you can follow the evolution of our organization and decision-making, as well as our product development. We hope you use this information to hold us accountable to our plans, learn with us, and contribute to our growth as an open-source, decentralized autonomous organization. Of note, some elements are redacted, such as Business Development. We do not publicize ongoing activities with our partners. We will continue to announce partnerships through separate press releases.
We are still working through testing for 12.3 and will get it out as soon as feasible.
Anybody how really understands how centralization vs decentralization especially when it comes to power, control and return on capital works in a monetary system, will understand that the 21delgates is a bad idea, it was a bad idea with bitshares, it was a bad idea with steemit and it will be a bad idea with EOS. Power corrupts absolute power corrupts absolutely. When you put smalll and big bolders (aka holders with small stakes and big stacks) and you shake them and shake them you'll find that they all find each-other nicely layer on top of each-other. EOS is a bad idea all around and it very close to a the total corruption of Satashi Nakamoto vision as can be.Many other projects such as EOS are reaching all time highs
Not saying it is for the pump. But failing to be hot in the crypto world is somewhat also dangerous. And riding the boom a little bit will create larger budget for the project to develop.@Blajde - please note we are not doing anything in this project for booms, announcements and general excitement. I know it is a main driver in many crypto projects (to create pump), however we are far away from such "strategy". Our goal is to deliver the best blockchain-based payments platform - nothing more, nothing less.
Results are not a priority when funding comes every month no matter what."Finalize and release updated roadmap" has been listed in "whats next" since the first Whats going on with Dash 3 months ago.....and is now over 6 months stale....great for investor confidence!
Dash Core Group is growing their team, and are eating up a major chunk of the budget right, don't you think they are feeling the pressure, they know they need to deliver or else.Results are not a priority when funding comes every month no matter what.
I wouldn’t expect a flashy easy to read roadmap. I am expecting text in bullet point form like the last one. Set your expectations low otherwise you will be disappointed. At this stage I just want something delivered from Core.Dash Core Group is growing their team, and are eating up a major chunk of the budget right, don't you think they are feeling the pressure, they know they need to deliver or else.
Ryan Taylor is actively working on ways to make it easier for use to fire them, It really doesn't look like they are looking for an easy paycheck.
Non the less it sucks, Dash needs that flashy updated easy to read road map, because will do wonders for the Dash price, and at this marketcap price and position in the coincapmarket.com list, we need that extra boost !
This better be the most complete and functional roadmap in the world. How you can manage to be 6 months late on a roadmap is absolutely absurd."Finalize and release updated roadmap" has been listed in "whats next" since the first Whats going on with Dash 3 months ago.....and is now over 6 months stale....great for investor confidence!
i feel the same, time for us to all vote for no core funding (but i doubt we would have any power to vote against that, even though it is suppose to be a decentralized budget governance)....it takes 6 months from 12.2 to 12.3 with minor updatesResults are not a priority when funding comes every month no matter what.
Evolution? 2019 or maybe 2020 if we progress as we are on 1st half of 2018!I agree with everyone here. I've been with Dash since the beginning. Execution and delivery is key in the crypto world and the Core team has been quite slow at this. Each week in crypto is like 1 year. The landscape of 2018 is drastically different than that of 2017 and for that matter, 2014 and there are now many great projects coming out left and right and the Dash core team need to accelerate development and delivery in order to remain competitive. Many other projects such as EOS are reaching all time highs despite the bear market while Dash remains close to all time lows- this is reflective of the status of the development and delivery. Dash needs Evolution figuratively and literally in order to stay competitive and recover in the 2018 hyper competitive crypto market.
I think the issue is not the delayed but lack of information on what caused the delay (or whom) and what will be the new projection with an actual deadline. Also wonder how some of these employees have been performing (or not employees but lets call it departments). Mock scenario: we know mobile is behind, but what has the web team done in the last 6 months or 1 month or 2 weeks?Agreed. Unfortunately not only the roadmap is suffering for huge delays. Everyone who get a job should understand that delays are an integral part of any project for many reasons , but we have to admit that the release date of any deliverable at the moment is completely off the predictions.
Yeah its started to make me wonder about how the Dash Team Leads, the CEO and other heads of Core actually track progress, if at all. I think delays go unnoticed for long periods of time without any repercussions in the team. i.e. someone says we need "xyz" delivered by this date. When that date passes nobody asks questions if its not done, and if the responsible person says "just didn't get around to it" the response is "ohh ok, let me know when you do, in the mean time I will just twiddle my thumbs and play some solitaire". We have many project managers, what are they doing? When there is an issue like with Bamboo, are there escalations where people can be re-assigned and all hands on deck to ensure things are dealt with swiftly or left to be delayed for 3 months like 12.3 has been?I think the issue is not the delayed but lack of information on what caused the delay (or whom) and what will be the new projection with an actual deadline.

The way the slides present themselves, it seems that HR is as big or important as Software Development.
If I may, I would like to disagree and explain my rationale. I'm helping the network at DCG for the last two years, and as a Lead Dev (Backend, Dashpay), I had quite a nice overview and I would love to disagree. What happen is that our work process has improved in quality (at every level, from infrastructure to internal tech communication), this happen to reduce the time as we do have more meeting (where we share who did what, and other sprint retrospectives, resulting in the doc above) and the time spent (running all the test carefully, .Dash Core becoming too big to work effectively.
What would be examples of some things you are looking for with respect to a sense of urgency?@Alexander Chopan The problem is the market will not wait for you guys. The window of opportunity for usernames and passwords was mid 2017. Try releasing it now and it won't make a difference on the price or transaction count. Whatever it is you guys are building, it won't matter if you got the timing wrong. I see no sense of urgency whatsoever here and it's maybe because you all get paid no matter what and have no bonus.
