Hi ther is any POS calculator for DMD or how much I will get from 100 DMD weekly?

I don't know if there is a calculator, but math is (in theory) simple, pos reward for some more time will be 5% (slowly decreasing...) so 100 DMD * 5% = 5 DMD gained in one year, pos reward now is of 0.8224896 DMD so 5 / 0.822... = 6 stake in one year so means 1 every two months, that with luck you can find 2 blocks in 2 week or nothing for 3 months...

that answer is a bit to pesimistic

POS rewards estimate to decrease slowly from ~20% towards ~5% in 2020 and 1% in 2027

so 100 DMD will find on average one POS block every 20 days if u run wallet 24/7
and the yearly result for 2018 should be  over 15%

Dear DMD Diamond Community,

DMD Diamond Foundation’s second bi-annual meeting took place in March in Austria. Over the course of 4 days the core team has had several very productive sessions where it analyzed what had been achieved since the last meeting, discussed questions submitted by the community and explored new pathways for DMD in areas such as marketing, software development and additional services.

In the 6 months’ period DMD Diamond Foundation has achieved 95% of set targets so this can be regarded as a success. Encouraged by that result we have set new aims and goals that we plan to accomplish within the next period. Some technical development however will become our long term goal, nonetheless, we expect to see meaningful progress each time we evaluate the situation.

Using this opportunity we would like to announce that DMD Diamond has completed a design and brand guideline book which outlines general rules of usage of the logo together with its logotype, color scheme, display typeface and others that in tandem build the visual identity of DMD Diamond. This is an important step in the development as it allows us to harmonize the messaging and sets the tone that is consistent with our core values. The guide can be viewed and downloaded from: https://bit.diamonds/DMD_branding_guide.pdf

All communication channels that use visuals will be successively updated to incorporate these changes. As a result the main website https://bit.diamonds will undergo a major upgrade both in terms of content and its design. We will also improve on technical support section and accessibility to reach the community and developers. The transition is planned to be completed within the next 90 days.

Based on the available data and first hand experience DMD team recognizes that the Asian markets are going to play a crucial role in the future success of cryptocurrencies, not only because of favorable legislation in certain jurisdictions that encourage participation and development but also tech-savviness and forward thinking of that region’s population which can see the benefits of blockchain technology.

In the coming months, DMD Diamond will focus on gaining a foothold in the growing Asian market. Within a few months we will see new region specific languages being introduced to the website to make information regarding Diamond more accessible. What’s more, new social channels directed at these markets will be established to directly communicate and educate people about DMD. We will also seek to extend the support team to specifically address these areas of development. We will continue to work on being added to a prominent Korean exchange Upbit which would have a major positive impact on the trading volume of DMD. Exchange listings are not always in our hands as they happen at sole discretion of the operators but we feel that eventually we will find our way to the markets from that region.

Nowadays, centralised exchanges are a norm, they are fast and some of them attract significant number of traders, however, there are many disadvantages to this model. They are not permissionless, they are prone to failure i.e. hacking and ever tighter legislation can in some cases create unnecessary barriers. Centralised exchanges are going to play an important role for foreseeable future and be main on and off ramps to FIAT. However, blockchain community as a whole is eventually going to move to a decentralised model of exchanging value. DMD Diamond will continue to develop technology, promote and work with projects that can offer such possibilities. Even though, this type of technology has still some way to go before it is ready for prime time, when it arrives it will change the crypto landscape in a significant way. DMD is currently working on integration with https://crypto-bridge.org/ and we hope to be featured there in the near future.

Another positive development is that DMD Diamond can now be purchased directly with both Debit and Credit Cards via Indacoin. Even though customers would have to pay a premium in the range of 15-35% for the service, due to operating costs caused by things like credit card chargebacks, it eliminates an entrance barrier to DMD. We will work with Indacoin on implementing a direct purchase option to our website and if the system proves to be popular and effective in the long run we would consider even tighter integration. You can explore the option of buying DMD by following this link: https://indacoin.com/en_GB/change/buy-diamond-with-cardusd

In terms of core software development DMD Diamond team has analysed in detail several different options, their negative and positive aspects as well as long term viability and impact on the value of DMD. The clear winner is SegWit technology that will allow for seamless integration with the Lightning network. Following this path will ensure DMD Diamond is a part of interconnected heterogeneous blockchain future and benefits from services that will be developed on top of it.

The latest buzz word in crypto is the 0 proof protocol that completely anonymises transactions. In theory this sounds like a very attractive ability to have, however, we don’t live in the digital world only and such technology is incompatible with the real world where it’s the legislators who dictate whether a cryptocurrency will be able to access the real economy and financial markets. There is a serious case for concern for coins that adapt such deep anonymity feature and we can expect a crackdown on coins that go this route. DMD Diamond Foundation would not risk compromising DMD’s long term viability for the sake of short term gains. Infact, once Diamond gets access to the Lightning network similar anonymity will be achieved thanks to the way such network operates, as a giant coin mixer, without above mentioned legal implications and with a bonus of being able to be used wherever bitcoin is used.

Be no mistaken, 0 proof protocol has its use case such as hiding sensitive information in smart contracts and it will be very useful to lots of companies, but deep anonymity of coin transactions is a completely different matter that could render coins useless as a viable form of payment. Be weary of claims to the contrary as even at the next G20 summit countries will discuss how to prevent money laundering in crypto that such technology easily permits. This anti anonymity sentiment has already started to affect crypto, for instance coins such as Monero, Zcash and Dash that use anonymity features are being removed from the infamous Japanese Coincheck exchange as a precondition to obtain the licence to operate legally; this might well become a worldwide trend.

Decision to go with SegWit technology is a general direction of future core development. It’s an extremely complex task and there are no off the shelf solutions; it will have to be developed as industry first. There is no Proof of Stake-Masternode-SegWit enabled coin but we are determined to deliver just that within the next 12 months.

Current DMD wallet is a very advanced software with ability to implement most of the latest technologies such as smart contracts. However, any implementation of such features must be backed by a real demand for it. Introducing new technologies for the sake of adding them to create hype is counterproductive and not in line with Diamond’s values. Eventually, smart contracts will appear in DMD Diamond but this will be in response to the need that we are going to create.

Another aspect we will focus on is an access to iOS devices. There is a huge potential for growth once the coin can be used in Apple products. We will try to achieve this via Coinomi mobile wallet which we are part of. We cannot put a definite time frame for this but we believe it's a very realistic prospect.

As we take on this ambitious development DMD Diamond Foundation is seeking to expand its core and support teams and we would like to officially announce that a new core member Steve Müller (metamorphin) who has been a long term friend and supporter of DMD Diamond project is joining our team. He has an extensive knowledge and experience in marketing with plenty of new practical ideas and solutions of how to make DMD a stronger and more prosperous coin. He has been the decisive force in delivering success to many other crypto projects and we are excited to work together and learn from him the best strategies and practices. Due to the challenges facing crypto and evolving complexity of the blockchain technology we see it critical to engage with talented people (developers, researchers, professionals) who can deliver value to the project.

On the marketing side we have been in contact with a few different professional PR companies that we think would deliver a recognition in and out of cryptocurrency sphere. However, our community is full of wonderful people who promote DMD in a really professional way. Please take a look at the promo video created by a community member @drdmd. The love for Diamond shines through the quality of this work. Thank you!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAU9iCN8jtQ&feature=youtu.be (female voice)

Please let us know on Slack which version you like the most so we make it an official promo video of DMD Diamond.

DMD Diamond Foundation will also start a lottery for Tweeter where it will be possible to win 100 USD worth of DMD for retweeting official DMD tweets. With each round three people will be selected for awards. Out of these, one person will be randomly picked and rewarded while the other two individuals whose retweets had the best outreach would be guaranteed prizes. If people enjoy it and we see some good results this could become periodical.

As most of the community is aware Diamond Cloudmining is being slowly phased out and during the meeting the team had discussed an alternative that could replace constant buy pressure that service generated. It is still largely in a research stage, as all aspects from technical to legal need to be evaluated. However, we are positive we are on the right path to create a passive income service related to DMD that at the end could be open to investors. At that stage a Smart Contract solution will have full legitimacy to be implemented.

The team has also discussed implications of DMD’s coin roll-out plan that entered a new phase. After many years DMD rewards which were extremely generous and worked wonders at the early stages in order to stimulate network effect are finally going to be decreasing. As DMD’s coin roll-out follows a gradual decay we won’t see any abrupt halvings and for the next 3 years DMD will stay still a very attractive with healthy big yearly returns. In the meantime we are planning to introduce multiple economically linked project that are going to generate demand and affect DMD positively in a big way. The passive income project we mentioned above will be the first one that we have planned.

DMD Diamond team has set realistic and achievable goals that we will be able to evaluate at the next meeting in September. The Foundation meeting was a great experience that helped to build team spirit, it infused everyone with enthusiasm and gave us a real boost to keep going and improving our work. Growing a cryptocurrency project is a marathon and not a sprint competition and as the saying goes constant dropping wears away a stone. With our long term vision and devotion there is nothing that can shake our resolve to deliver the best for DMD Diamond investors.

Yours truly,

DMD Diamond team

That seems we are on the right track to bring DIAMOND to higher levels, might be its new all-time-highs.
In the 6 months’ period DMD Diamond Foundation has achieved 95% of set targets so this can be regarded as a success

Exactly right! Asian continent has huge potential and should be target population, customers of DIAMOND project. Several countries in Asia, including South Korea, China, Japan, India, etc. seems to be extremely high-potential targets. There are lots of large exchanges, billions of users in the continent.

Another plus point for DIAMOND project. Great!
Another positive development is that DMD Diamond can now be purchased directly with both Debit and Credit Cards via Indacoin.

Excellent! Twitter channel is very efficient one to spread information about DIAMOND project.

I am waiting for promising events in September.

Yeah, nice strategy to build up anonymity of DIAMOND transactions based on mixture of Lightning network and zero protocol. This strategy can help DIAMOND project stay away from annoying problems related to legal authorities.

I don't agree too much with the statement i put in bold, have you watched bitshare/openledger decentralized exchange ? I'm using it by some months and i don't think that is a non mature product....

Maybe I wasn't clear enough but I was speaking more broadly about possibilities of exchanging value, bitshares/openledger is not the only one that will provide such function, namely Lightning, Internet of Coins, atomic swaps, etc .. there are many approaches to this .. they need time to mature. I wouldn't say that all we have right now is the end product (and the only way of achieving this) that is easy and ready to use by any project.

I would give it about a year before we see multiple ways of exchanging coins that is end user ready (more than alpha versions).

Dear DMD Diamond Community,

DMD Diamond Foundation’s second bi-annual meeting took place in March in Austria. Over the course of 4 days the core team has had several very productive sessions where it analyzed what had been achieved since the last meeting, discussed questions submitted by the community and explored new pathways for DMD in areas such as marketing, software development and additional services.

The clear winner is SegWit technology that will allow for seamless integration with the Lightning network. Following this path will ensure DMD Diamond is a part of interconnected heterogeneous blockchain future and benefits from services that will be developed on top of it.

The latest buzz word in crypto is the 0 proof protocol that completely anonymises transactions. In theory this sounds like a very attractive ability to have, however, we don’t live in the digital world only and such technology is incompatible with the real world where it’s the legislators who dictate whether a cryptocurrency will be able to access the real economy and financial markets. There is a serious case for concern for coins that adapt such deep anonymity feature and we can expect a crackdown on coins that go this route. DMD Diamond Foundation would not risk compromising DMD’s long term viability for the sake of short term gains. Infact, once Diamond gets access to the Lightning network similar anonymity will be achieved thanks to the way such network operates, as a giant coin mixer, without above mentioned legal implications and with a bonus of being able to be used wherever bitcoin is used.

Be no mistaken, 0 proof protocol has its use case such as hiding sensitive information in smart contracts and it will be very useful to lots of companies, but deep anonymity of coin transactions is a completely different matter that could render coins useless as a viable form of payment. Be weary of claims to the contrary as even at the next G20 summit countries will discuss how to prevent money laundering in crypto that such technology easily permits. This anti anonymity sentiment has already started to affect crypto, for instance coins such as Monero, Zcash and Dash that use anonymity features are being removed from the infamous Japanese Coincheck exchange as a precondition to obtain the licence to operate legally; this might well become a worldwide trend.

Decision to go with SegWit technology is a general direction of future core development. It’s an extremely complex task and there are no off the shelf solutions; it will have to be developed as industry first. There is no Proof of Stake-Masternode-SegWit enabled coin but we are determined to deliver just that within the next 12 months.

Current DMD wallet is a very advanced software with ability to implement most of the latest technologies such as smart contracts. However, any implementation of such features must be backed by a real demand for it. Introducing new technologies for the sake of adding them to create hype is counterproductive and not in line with Diamond’s values. Eventually, smart contracts will appear in DMD Diamond but this will be in response to the need that we are going to create.

Another aspect we will focus on is an access to iOS devices. There is a huge potential for growth once the coin can be used in Apple products. We will try to achieve this via Coinomi mobile wallet which we are part of. We cannot put a definite time frame for this but we believe it's a very realistic prospect.

As we take on this ambitious development DMD Diamond Foundation is seeking to expand its core and support teams and we would like to officially announce that a new core member Steve Müller (metamorphin) who has been a long term friend and supporter of DMD Diamond project is joining our team. He has an extensive knowledge and experience in marketing with plenty of new practical ideas and solutions of how to make DMD a stronger and more prosperous coin. He has been the decisive force in delivering success to many other crypto projects and we are excited to work together and learn from him the best strategies and practices. Due to the challenges facing crypto and evolving complexity of the blockchain technology we see it critical to engage with talented people (developers, researchers, professionals) who can deliver value to the project.

On the marketing side we have been in contact with a few different professional PR companies that we think would deliver a recognition in and out of cryptocurrency sphere. However, our community is full of wonderful people who promote DMD in a really professional way. Please take a look at the promo video created by a community member @drdmd. The love for Diamond shines through the quality of this work. Thank you!

Please let us know on Slack which version you like the most so we make it an official promo video of DMD Diamond.

DMD Diamond Foundation will also start a lottery for Tweeter where it will be possible to win 100 USD worth of DMD for retweeting official DMD tweets. With each round three people will be selected for awards. Out of these, one person will be randomly picked and rewarded while the other two individuals whose retweets had the best outreach would be guaranteed prizes. If people enjoy it and we see some good results this could become periodical.

As most of the community is aware Diamond Cloudmining is being slowly phased out and during the meeting the team had discussed an alternative that could replace constant buy pressure that service generated. It is still largely in a research stage, as all aspects from technical to legal need to be evaluated. However, we are positive we are on the right path to create a passive income service related to DMD that at the end could be open to investors. At that stage a Smart Contract solution will have full legitimacy to be implemented.

The team has also discussed implications of DMD’s coin roll-out plan that entered a new phase. After many years DMD rewards which were extremely generous and worked wonders at the early stages in order to stimulate network effect are finally going to be decreasing. This is a good news for DMD holders as according to supply and demand principle the scarcer the coin the higher its value is going to be. As DMD’s coin roll-out follows a gradual decay we won’t see any abrupt halvings and for the next 3 years DMD will stay still a very attractive with healthy big yearly returns. In the meantime we are planning to introduce multiple economically linked project that are going to generate demand and affect DMD positively in a big way. The passive income project we mentioned above will be the first one that we have planned.

DMD Diamond team has set realistic and achievable goals that we will be able to evaluate at the next meeting in September. The Foundation meeting was a great experience that helped to build team spirit, it infused everyone with enthusiasm and gave us a real boost to keep going and improving our work. Growing a cryptocurrency project is a marathon and not a sprint competition and as the saying goes constant dropping wears away a stone. With our long term vision and devotion there is nothing that can shake our resolve to deliver the best for DMD Diamond investors.

Yours truly,

DMD Diamond team

the markets we see now follow clear a rubberband logic
there is only 2 possible results
the band breaks
or the band move the move u pull it downwards upwards once u release it

if u belive in breaking cry titanic and jump into the cold water

if u belive that one of the oldest coins which did raise back out of every bad market situation in the past
higher and stronger to new all time highs since 5 years can do this again
(maybe the reason we are called the phoenix of crypto)



then maybe take advantage of the situation and average down
by add cheap DMD to your portfolio u increase further profits a lot and special the required raise to be in big green numbers get lower and lower

average down down at 7$ can even make ur investment at 20$ getting green above 10$ again


the meachanic is explained here
http://www.investinganswers.com/financial-dictionary/stock-market/average-down-740

dont take advantage of this if u belive DMD will never ever recover
never see over 10$ again

i dont give investment advice i just explain mechanics
decide based on ur own research what are the proper steps to be taken

Great update and good read.

As a long term holder this is nothing new to see the team do these updates and share with the community where their plans for the coin are headed. To highlight some features of the teams last meeting.

-Targeting asian markets
-Working on implementing cutting edge crypto tech like segwit
-building new passive income methods in DMD

The diamond team isnt a passive one, they are always on top of what is going on in the crypto industry. After years of holding I have never been disappointed with the core devs decisions and work.

As for the price people shouldn't be worried, the whole market has been down and DMD is just following that trend. These levels were tested before only to break to the upside, not saying it will but the point is that DMD is still a good long term investment.

Thanks to the DMD foundation and team for the updates.

Diamond project has transitioned its target customers and target population into Asia continent, which has lots of potential, powerful countries in crypto ecosytem, including Japan, South Korea, China, India, and more to come. It is smart movement of Diamond managers and team of core developers.
As the project has demonstrated through its products so far, I strongly believe that Diamond will release more top-notch products and services this year and more coming years.

It is really hard time for all altcoins in the market due to downtrend and terrible impacts of bitcoin and recent bad news. However, I think and believe that all things will be fine, and the whole market will take off again at some point around May or June of the year.
Most importantly, Diamond will recover to over $20 points soon because we have seen lots of promising events, plans for Diamond this year.

Nowadays, centralised exchanges are a norm, they are fast and some of them attract significant number of traders, however, there are many disadvantages to this model. They are not permissionless, they are prone to failure i.e. hacking and ever tighter legislation can in some cases create unnecessary barriers. Centralised exchanges are going to play an important role for foreseeable future and be main on and off ramps to FIAT. However, blockchain community as a whole is eventually going to move to a decentralised model of exchanging value. DMD Diamond will continue to develop technology, promote and work with projects that can offer such possibilities. Even though, this type of technology has still some way to go before it is ready for prime time, when it arrives it will change the crypto landscape in a significant way. DMD is currently working on integration with https://crypto-bridge.org/ and we hope to be featured there in the near future.

I don't agree too much with the statement i put in bold, have you watched bitshare/openledger decentralized exchange ? I'm using it by some months and i don't think that is a non mature product....

Cheers

I've used Crypto-Bridge recently, and that's part of the general BitShares based decentralized trading network. It is clunky and difficult to use. So yeah, not ready for the prime time. It's definitely good for DMD to be on these decentralized exchanges now. Just know that they are currently a turnoff to many people who just want to be able to conduct their cryptobusiness in a simple and streamlined fashion.

I have tried using Crypto Bridge too. As my own experience, this exchange is hard to use (as you said), and transaction fees are too higher (much more higher than other exchanges). Nevertheless, decentralized exchanges might be new hot trend this year or several coming years. Decentralizing is key point in crypto ecosystem, hence exchanges should and will not be exceptions.
It might be better if Diamond project will have its own decentralised exchange.
