This is great, Dash now has listings on additional major exchanges like Coinbase, Coinbase Pro, Vaultoro, Smart Valor and Binance US.
On a sidenote : OKEx Korea (a much smaller local Korean exchange) has decided to re-evaluate its earlier decision to delist Dash.
Fingers crossed they decide to keep Dash listed, their reasons to delist Dash were a bit strange to begin with.

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / PIVX and possibly 200 other blockchains vulnerable to bug on: August 13, 2019, 07:18:49 PM

Read more here :

Note : PIVX is a fork of Dash (forked from Dash v0.12.0.x) and is using a custom proof of stake (PoS) model.
Both PIVX and over 200 other PoS blockchains appear to be vulnerable to disproportionately high staking rewards.
Dash on the other hand does not have this vulnerability, because Dash has a proof of work (PoW) model.

Bitgreen (a PoS altcoin running on PIVX) stated it will start planning a migration from PIVX to Dash.

As a final solution, the BitGreen project plans to migrate from the still-vulnerable PIVX network to DASH on its next update

How Dash Works

Peer-to-peer digital currency differs from traditional money in that there is no central authority responsible for monitoring supply and authenticity.
Instead, the hard laws of mathematics govern supply and ensure that only legitimate owners can spend their balances. Assuming users follow
recommended security practices, this makes fraudulent spending and theft almost impossible. In the absence of a central authority, each node on
the network itself must come to an agreement (or consensus) on the balances of each account (or address) every few minutes. This information is
then stored in a block, and irreversibly written and linked to the previous block to form a chain. This constantly updated ledger is accessible by any
user of the network and is called the blockchain.

Dash builds on this simple (although somewhat unfamiliar) concept by offering users instant, private and secure transactions that are so simple,
you won’t even know you are transacting on a blockchain. Anyone can participate in the network, and Dash is widely available for purchase around
the world. The ingenious masternode network means sending any sum of money around the world is as simple as tapping your phone at your local
store to buy groceries. Say goodbye to slow transactions, complex international account numbers and high transaction fees – Dash is digital cash!

This thread is ment to provide Dash discussion to the Bitcointalk forum users in this Altcoin Discussion section.
This thread includes (but is in no way limited to) : general Dash information and specific Dash news.
This thread is only moderated on two words : scam and premine, as both of those words are often falsely used by trolls who want to press Dash into
either the scam corner or the premine corner. Dash does not belong in either corner.

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Dash strenghten its presence in the legal Cannabis industry on: February 08, 2019, 07:32:19 PM
Dash-Exclusive Cannabis Company Alt Thirty Six Claims B2B Traction, New Cash Management Solution

Dash-powered cannabis payments solution Alt Thirty Six has recorded significant B2B transaction volume through a new cash management solution.

Funded in part by the Dash treasury, Alt Thirty Six is a Dash-exclusive payments solution company specifically targeting the legal cannabis industry, which faces several banking issues, particularly in the United States.
The company has recently rolled out a new cash management solution, allowing cash-heavy dispensaries to schedule a pickup to exchange their cash for Dash, which is then used to pay suppliers via the platform

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Dash slowly moving in on newly emerging peer-to-peer energy markets on: January 25, 2018, 02:42:47 PM
US Government Lab Looks to Blockchain for P2P Energy

Blockchain startup BlockCypher has partnered with a U.S. Department of Energy lab to develop solutions allowing energy transactions to be settled across multiple blockchains.

The energy agency's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and BlockCypher first plan to demonstrate peer-to-peer energy transactions involving distributed energy resources (DER) over
the dash cryptocurrency network between two test homes in the NREL's energy facility, said Dylan Cutler, senior engineer for the initiative at NREL.

Another major newly emerging peer to peer market is most likely healthcare, which Dash also has plans for through its partnership with BlockCypher.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Monero's Achilles' heel ? on: April 22, 2017, 02:31:49 PM
Achilles' heel : a weakness or vulnerable point.

You Can Link Monero Transactions – But Which? And What's the Impact?

On Twitter, Reddit and across social media, a heated discussion has been playing out over findings published on
Launched on 14th April, the website provides a block explorer that lets users follow the inputs and outputs of a majority (62%) of transactions
conducted before January 2017, a feat that was widely thought to be impossible.

The explorer is a practical implementation of techniques published in a research paper by Andrew Miller and Kevin Lee of the University of Illinois
at Urbana-Champaign, and Arvind Narayanan and Malte Möser of Princeton University.

Since its publication, much debate has taken place over whether the findings of the paper have been presented accurately, and equally, whether
the monero team's own research – which founder Riccardo Spagni says highlighted the same findings in 2015 – has communicated well enough
to give users of the network a clear understanding of its limitations.

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Monero under scrutiny of the FBI on: January 31, 2017, 05:45:27 PM

The privacy-focused digital currency monero has captured the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which has expressed concerns over its use among criminals.

Following the event, the special agent said he couldn't provide additional details specifically pertaining to the FBI’s investigative techniques surrounding monero when asked by CoinDesk.

Thats what you get when you promote as cryptocurrency your direct links to darknet markets, i guess.
The FBI's full attention and subject to its investigative techniques.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [Poll] Do you feel part of a crypto community ? on: January 17, 2017, 07:44:44 AM
Recentely i had a discussion with some people, who stated they did not feel part of a community or even considered a community
being possible that could evolve around a cryptocurrency. I found this rather odd as i feel strongly connected to a community of the
cryptocurrency i am interested in (Dash).

I do realise i will never get in touch with the whole Dash crypto community, due to language barriers and the community being spread
over different forums (BCT,, Reddit, Slack), but i still have a strong feeling of being part of a community.

If you are interested in participathing in this little poll of mine then please vote for option yes or no and describe in a reply how you voted and why.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The battle over online privacy (Dash / Monero / Zcash) on: September 03, 2016, 08:11:53 PM

Its a good thing Dash moved away from darknet and that Dash privacy solution is totally optional.  

Interesting article from Alan Struna (please read it completely), it could have huge implications for a certain cryptocurrency that just got added as currency on darknet.
Direct association with darknet = Full attention of the FBI

Update :

Direct link to EFF article that was quoted:

I suspect this will provide some need for discussion, so please discuss  Grin
