How Cryptocurrencies Like Dash Help the Poor


The cryptocurrency world is awash in libertarians. The underlying nature of cryptocurrencies—decentralized currencies that don’t require a middle-man and can’t be controlled by the government—is music to libertarian ears. A common complaint against libertarians, and therefore against many cryptocurrency advocates, is that they are inherently selfish. Because they don’t advocate for government-sponsored social welfare programs, they don’t care for the poor and those in need. Therefore, cryptocurrency projects are primarily about greed and getting rich.

Is this true? Do cryptocurrency projects exist simply for selfish reasons? And will the rise of cryptocurrency make things even worse for the poor?

is there still something happening to dash???

Dash has around 38 full-time developers on payroll plus many more part-time devs and an awesome roadmap.  What sort of answer are you looking for?

Altcoin advertising spam.

lol, this dude has been trolling Dash and saying it was a scam since it was around $2. it must really hurt missing that life changing opportunity, hopefully he did not scare off and hurt too many other peoples futures with his hate filled anti-Dash rants.
definitely not someone you want to take investment advice from!

I feel sorry for him.  His last post (and each repeat of it) clearly illustrates that he views everything in terms of its "pump value" without any regard for fundamentals, development  or progress.  He's been so indoctrinated with the "pump" mentality of other inward looking coins all vying to be the biggest fish in the tiny crypto pond that he can't even see there's a bigger world out there.  He'll kick himself so hard when he finally sees Dash changing the world that I'm seriously tempted to quote all his posts just to remind him in the future that missing out was all his own fault  Grin

After reading this post by Evan https://medium.com/@eduffield222/how-to-enabling-on-chain-scaling-2ffab5997f8b It appears that Dash is going to change the way that Dash handles transactions to something more along the lines of EOS with the delegated proof of stake along with the nodes taking turns processing the transactions to make "mining" fair for all participants.

This is obviously a good path forward but a very serious change to the way things operate and also becoming more "centralized" than it currently is

No DPOS, No centralization.



This has been addressed in the comments section.

I didn't read anything of the sort in that piece... Evan talks about scaling the hardware a MN runs on such that the network can process very large (several 100 MB) mined blocks. There nothing in there implying that DASH is not going to be proof of work in the future. Collateralized mining is discussed as well, but not only have the details of that not been explained to the community -- it was recently removed from the roadmap (presumably pushed back to focus on Evolution).

Can you quote the section that where "delegated proof of stake" or something similar is mentioned?

This is from the medium article. This is nothing but mincing of words. Collateralized mining is Staking
Quote
The basic premise of collateralized mining is to require collateralization and a special mining key which is associated with each masternode to be able to mine a block. Each masternode is then capable only of mining a specific amount of blocks per period of time, creating a round robin mining effect across the network.

This is how EOS will operate:

The difference being that bad acting producers can be voted out. What measures are in place to prohibit bad acting masternodes ? Would the masternodes vote themselves to remove a bad actor ?


Quote
As we mature, masternodes become bigger boxes that require a specific set of specifications, for example they’ll require a high-end cpus, high-end graphics cards, a disk array and low-latency networking. It seems to me that we should be able to do that from outside of co-locations even, building our own farms at various dash centers / offices, allowing our own decentralized co-location services. souce: https://medium.com/@eduffield222/i-looked-up-the-amount-of-nodes-we-presently-have-on-each-server-farm-with-this-url-http-178-88967e634897

This sounds more centralized than decentralized.

If anybody finds the time and is qualified, I'd be more than happy to see these questions answered. I think those are also throwing up valid concerns.

Repeating myself... The details of exactly how collateralized mining may work have not been released AND it is currently not on the roadmap (which by the way covers the next two years or so). If Evan wants to do another Medium post to clear things up I am all for it, but I don't see the point in guessing at a feature that is years off based on sparse public information.

Finally Dash is being appreciated by the market. This is totally surprising for some people who were not connected to this thread but it was obvious to happen after all. I like after quick rise market made small correction to stabilize the floor before keep advancing to skies. Dash is good hedge against volatility happening in many markets right now.

I have been following Dash for a long time, but haven't really looked into PIVX (which I found out about recently). Could anyone quickly provide a short intro in how far these coins are different?

Pivx basically copied Dash omitting some of the best bits.  Dash has all the talent, the innovation, the vision, the business integrations and the merchants.

Commerce 101: Niche Marketing / Tradeshows


Except for the early adopter “crypto” people Dash is still in the chicken and egg level of adoption.  There are too few “general audience” vendors and nowhere near enough “regular people” using Dash to make it anything close to mainstream.  Many of my recent articles show the scarcity of systems that a retail location can use to accept Dash as part of their normal workflow.  While Dash is making some progress in gaining new ways to switch from fiat cash to digital cash it is not near enough.  We need to be working on both sides of this equation.

Sure it would be great if Coinbase starts trading Dash – but it will still take up to 10 days to go from my checking account to Coinbase before I can buy Dash.  We need more local solutions like ATM’s and other vendors like some new Dash funded debit cards.

Pink channel continues to define price of Dash in terms of bitcoin. Last bounce at bottom of channel was a great buying op. Lets see if Dash tests the top of the channel again, currently just shy of 0.1

DASHcoin is now already starting up again my prediction this month Dashcoin will go up and maybe that still have a lot of BTC balance there may be some of the balance will be bought in the dash
Just calm the traders may be a lot of yesterday's moon trapped, it could be next month we will get out of the trap.

Thanks for the latest news updates from master NibiruHybrid and MasterMined710.  This might be a good time to buy before DASH goes to the moon. Hopefully I still have not missed the train.
