Dash Whitepapers

  1. Original Dash Whitepaper
Note: Previously the Evolution Whitepapers were linked in this section. These papers were written back in 2015 and are outdated, because Dash Evolution has seen a massive re-design and has been developed much further than those papers could have predicted. A new version will be posted here and elsewhere as soon as it is available.

No Treasury proposal for it exists.
  19. 10 Stupid Things People Say About Dash And How To Respond
  20. Sporks: One of the foundations of Dash's success
  21. There is no so called "Master Private Key" in Dash and there never has been. Sporks (explained above) have no relation to user funds, as the source code easily proves.
  22. Trolls vs. Users: The Limited Importance of Online Communities
  23. Dash PrivateSend and usage of denomination inputs
  24. Valuable link list from Dash Force member Mastermined
  25. "But Dash PrivateSend has a much smaller ambiguity set! Its privacy is broken!!!"
  26. Succinct refutation on Masternodes "artifically" blowing up the price & Evan Duffield being the only miner at launch
  27. Bitcoin Cash vs Dash
  28. "Dash rebranded from Darkcoin to distance itself from its dark history!!" -> Not at all. Nothing about its history is "dark" and more importantly this thread called "The Birth of Darkcoin" is stickied by Evan Duffield himself on the official main forum.
  29. "Evan Duffield lied about the launch time so he would get an unfair advantage at mining!" -> Quotes from the original launch thread on Bitcointalk: "Awesome! We'll be launching soon. Things are looking good." and "Launch is being moved to 11PM EST!". As the genesis block proves launch took place at 03:54:41 AM (UTC) on Jan. 19th, 2014 or 10:54:41 PM (EST), Jan. 18th, 2014. So if anything it was 5 minutes early.
  30. "But Litecoin is superior to Dash!!" - Really? Let's compare - Here's another sober look at the facts on this issue.
  31. Why Dash is not prone to cluster analysis attacks
  32. How "centralized" is Dash, really? & Which project is actually centralized here?
  33. From the day Dash started trading until late April 2014 anyone had the chance to buy Dash for less than 1 USD
  34. Dash Core developer MooCowMoo on alleged Masternode centralization and PrivateSend
  35. Why Masternodes have no incentive to vote in a proposal to pay themselves a large sum of Dash
  36. What is Dash's competitive edge?
  37. Why saying "Dash is a company" is false: Dash Core Inc., a company based in Scottsdale, Arizona is not the decentralized network called Dash. The network, consistent of over 4.5k globally distributed, decentralized Masternodes decided to hire and fund the company Dash Core Inc. to develop said network. This is the distinguishing property of Dash being a DAO, so it's understandable people have difficulty grasping the concept. Similarly Dash does not have a CEO, while Dash Core Inc. -obviously- has.
  38. Dash does not and never had a "dev tax": Dash has a Treasury and its distribution is being voted on each month. Only those funds that have been approved by the Masternode network go to proposal owners. The Treasury is capped at 10% of the accumulated block reward of one month. There is no central authority non-requested or non-approved funds go to and there never has been. Those funds are simply not created. So you can have months in which only 8% of the budget is being paid out, with the remaining 2% going to nobody due to not being mined.
  39. "B-but Evan Duffield can roll back the last 24 hours of the blockchain with the flick of a button!" Complete bullshit. The key in question refers to requiring a Masternode to re-validate its pre-existing blockchain in order to ensure it's on the right chain. Masternodes have nothing do with putting or removing transactions into or from the blockchain, only the miners can do that, thus claiming someone can "roll back the blockchain" in Dash is a malicious lie and a desperate attempt to make Dash look centralized when it's not. In short: No such button exists, ever existed or will ever exist.
  40. Why the total coin supply was changed or "The 84 million coin"-Question

General notes:

The Dash community is well aware that during most of its history this project has been under attack by competitors, many of which are trying to portray Dash (among many other things) as a failure. This is oxymoronic, because nobody hates on failures, especially not for 4 successful years in a row.
If you want a quick history lesson, here's a comment I made on where the Dash hate originated from back in 2014
Another, longer history lesson
Remain skeptical towards sensational accusations without evidence. Our community is helpful, knowledgeable and more than happy to answer any questions, as we have done many times on this subreddit. Still, we're all only human, have limited resources and we're just one project among many (always among the top, though!). Stakeholders and investors of other projects will always have an agenda to smear what they perceive as competition (I have yet to see our community actively go after other projects, though).
Just remember the Bullshit Asymmetry: "The amount of energy required to refute bullshit is at least an order of magnitude larger than to produce it." So it would be very unjust to expect a refutation on the spot all of the time. Prefer taking the initiative by asking the community directly about the claim you're confronted with. This community has proven many times to possess the integrity required to admit to technological shortcomings, but at the same time we'll never hesitate to call out illegitimate claims and accusations, of which there are many, for what they are.
The most common and most empty attack is "Dash is a scam".
More importantly you have to ask the critic just this one question: Who was scammed? The answer usually consists of complete silence or attempts to change the topic. This may sound all very defensive to someone who has never experienced the kind of FUD Dash has faced over the years, but the falsehoods we've refuted above are still being perpetuated by a very lonely but also very loud minority.

Not an ICO project

Regarding Dash's finances: Despite what many people assume influenced by the ICO insanity of the recent past, Dash did not have an ICO and Dash does not depend on 3rd party funding/investors. It is self funded from the blockchain and thus an entirely independent organization that does exactly what it wants, not what any angel investors want us to do. Dash is the first currency in history to achieve that.

Quick incomplete rundown of Dash's features

In fact Dash pioneered almost every single one of its features making it one of the most prolific innovators in the cryptocurrency space. Before Dash invented them, none of these features existed:
To re-iterate a previous point:
Dash has been copied by several dozen other projects either completely or through selected features indicating a strong approval of its technology within the wider cryptocurrency industry. The most copied feature by far is the Masternode system and the financial self-reliance it provides.

Dash's InstantSend Failure Taught Us How NOT to Implement Cryptocurrency Features

Dash made a mistake.
One of Dash’s hallmark features, InstantSend copied the GreenAddress feature in Bitcoin by having masternodes lock the inputs of a transaction so that they can’t be spent elsewhere, effectively making transactions confirmed in 1.3 seconds instead of 10+ minutes. While certainly revolutionary, this innovation was unfortunately implemented and marketed using incompetent methods that caused it to be overlooked for years, as the market cap of Dash imploded to a tiny 0.5% of the total crypto market and fell in rank from #3 to #16.
InstantSend was a feature nobody wanted
At its start, InstantSend (then InstantX) was worth its weight in hype: It was a shiny new gimmick that supposedly solved some big deficiency in Bitcoin, promising to take Dash to the MOOON. Then, everyone except brainwashed Dash Kool-Aid drinkers kind of collectively realized that no one particularly cared. Bitcoin transactions showed up right away and pretty much always went through, and even waiting for confirmations only took about 10 minutes or so. There was no compelling reason to switch to using Dash over this feature, because it solved a problem that no one really had.
Users and merchants having to take additional action was a huge no-go
The biggest barrier to usefulness for Dash's instamined Ponzi tokens was having to manually enable the InstantSend option. This wasn’t a problem because it’s so difficult to simply check a box when you want to use the feature, but because most wallets and services didn’t even implement it to begin with. In an ecosystem with hundreds of tokens to keep track of, no one would want to pay Dash some special attention and carve out a little time and effort to implement its special features so it could stand out against its neighbors. This left very few services (mainly the Core client for the longest time) actually enabling InstantSend, and until relatively recently there were not even mobile wallets for both iPhone and Android that could use a feature mainly touted for retail transactions. Despite all that expensive and tireless developer work, in the vast majority of wallets the Dash experience was indistinguishable from that of Bitcoin or Litecoin, the parent projects whose code ungrateful Dash Core steals while talking trash about the devs who wrote it for them.
Even worse, merchants and other services had no idea what to do with a received InstantSend transaction. I remember spending Dash some many months ago, and the point-of-sale app not recognizing the payment at all due to InstantSend being used. The ecosystem is much better educated now, but many services still don’t recognize InstantSend due to the simple fact of having to actually pay it some attention and nobody wanting to use Dash because of its price collapse and KuvaNation36 vs. DACH Force Embassy civil war.
Implementing InstantSend by default is a public relations experience win
The massive MOOON PAAMP for Dash isn’t Evolution vaporware and blockchain username abandonware. It’s default InstantSend. By automatically locking the vast majority of transactions instantly, at the protocol level, now Dash will, on all systems and platforms, have a distinct PR advantage over every other coin. Rather than having to sell exchanges, merchants, users, etc. on how great Dash would work for them if they just took a few additional steps, now the pitch is simplified to “Just use Dash.” Traders will see how effective instant and secure deposits and withdrawals are, particularly for arbitrage opportunities across exchanges. Merchants, particularly online, will love not having to wait or check up on payments, or, even worse, doubt whether or not the payment will end up going through. Customers will appreciate the instant gratification of buying and immediately receiving. In my hopium-induced dream world, implementing an old feature by default will for most have the same effect as rolling out an exciting new feature.
Monero got this right
Whether or not this is something most Dash Cargo Cultists want to hear, Monero got this aspect right by having its special features enabled by default. While this was pitched as a philosophical issue, in practice it really boiled down to user experience: use Monero from virtually any wallet, expect higher privacy than Bitcoin. By supporting Monero, every service was forced to implement its special features, and therefore its competitive advantage over others. Dash is in essence doing the same thing, only for a project that’s in much less popular (indeed, widely hated as a scam).
Dash was before its time, but now it's too late
Fierce competition and the decline of the Buttcash adoption movement have made crypto projects struggle for cash, giving Dash’s bloated treasury system a starvation diet. Network congestion has made the reliability of several networks suffer, giving an edge to BSV's 128mb block scaling research and CTOR's increased TPS. And now, in the age of unprofitable X11 mining and easily affordable 51% attacks, InstantSend and ChainLocks promise to instantly make Nakamoto Consensus' longest-valid-chain rule an obsolete inconvenience.
Dash lagged in the past because its many useless and broken opt-in features were easy to ignore by the rest of the world. Now with its instamined Ponzi tokens, untested homegrown security, and centralized governance/development, Dashcoin is about to continue being one of the most unpopular and despised scams in the cryptospace.

Wolfpack bot.......

About some years ago, one of my friends hailed his belief in Bitcoin and explained how he moved his whole life savings onto a hardware wallet and erudite his private alphanumeric key. He sounded like a character from a Neal Stephenson novel-gritty, daring and irreverent of the world’s established banking systems. While Bitcoin has soared since then and made him a millionaire many times over, the question now is if it will continue to rise in value or if it’s already reached its height.
A digital currency “crypto currency” that has no tangible paper or physical coin representation. Instead, encryption techniques using computers and open source software generate the currency based on mathematical proof, or blockchains. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are decentralized: There’s no place like a bank where the currency is held, and a private security key tied to an open source ledger proves who holds the value. As an electronic payment system, cryptocurrencies are instantaneous and have low transaction fees compared to traditional banking systems, which are comparatively slow and have high fees associated.

    1. "One miner loses $12k from BU bug, some Core devs scream. Users pay millions in excessive tx fees over the last year "meh, not a priority" (529 points, 262 comments)
    2. Charlie Shrem: "Oh cmon. @gavinandresen is the reason we are all here today. Stop attacking people, ...." (256 points, 61 comments)

  2. 2876 points, 24 submissions: ydtm
    1. The debate is not "SHOULD THE BLOCKSIZE BE 1MB VERSUS 1.7MB?". The debate is: "WHO SHOULD DECIDE THE BLOCKSIZE?" (1) Should an obsolete temporary anti-spam hack freeze blocks at 1MB? (2) Should a centralized dev team soft-fork the blocksize to 1.7MB? (3) OR SHOULD THE MARKET DECIDE THE BLOCKSIZE? (354 points, 116 comments)
    2. BU-SW parity! 231 vs 231 of the last 1000 blocks! Consensus will always win over censorship! MARKET-BASED blocksize will always win over CENTRALLY-PLANNED blocksize! People want blocksize to be determined by the MARKET - not by Greg Maxwell & his 1.7MB anyone-can-spend SegWit-as-a-soft-fork blocks. (271 points, 66 comments)
    3. The number of blocks being mined by Bitcoin Unlimited is now getting very close to surpassing the number of blocks being mined by SegWit! More and more people are supporting BU's MARKET-BASED BLOCKSIZE - because BU avoids needless transaction delays and ultimately increases Bitcoin adoption & price! (185 points, 80 comments)
    4. "Notice how anyone who has even remotely supported on-chain scaling has been censored, hounded, DDoS'd, attacked, slandered & removed from any area of Core influence. Community, business, Hearn, Gavin, Jeff, XT, Classic, Coinbase, Unlimited, ViaBTC, Ver, Jihan, Bitcoin.com, btc" ~ u/randy-lawnmole (176 points, 114 comments)
    5. "Why is Flexible Transactions more future-proof than SegWit?" by u/ThomasZander (175 points, 110 comments)
    6. "You have to understand that Core and their supporters eg Theymos WANT a hardfork to be as messy as possible. This entire time they've been doing their utmost to work AGAINST consensus, and it will continue until they are simply removed from the community like the cancer they are." ~ u/singularity87 (170 points, 28 comments)
    7. Blockstream/Core don't care about you. They're repeatedly crippling the network with their DEV-CONTROLLED blocksize. Congestion & delays are now ROUTINE & PREDICTABLE after increased difficulty / time between blocks. Only we can fix the network - using MARKET-CONTROLLED blocksize (Unlimited/Classic) (168 points, 60 comments)
    8. 3 excellent articles highlighting some of the major problems with SegWit: (1) "Core Segwit – Thinking of upgrading? You need to read this!" by WallStreetTechnologist (2) "SegWit is not great" by Deadalnix (3) "How Software Gets Bloated: From Telephony to Bitcoin" by Emin Gün Sirer (146 points, 59 comments)
    9. This trader's price & volume graph / model predicted that we should be over $10,000 USD/BTC by now. The model broke in late 2014 - when AXA-funded Blockstream was founded, and started spreading propaganda and crippleware, centrally imposing artificially tiny blocksize to suppress the volume & price. (143 points, 97 comments)
    10. Now that BU is overtaking SW, r\bitcoin is in meltdown. The 2nd top post over there (sorted by "worst first" ie "controversial") is full of the most ignorant, confused, brainwashed comments ever seen on r\bitcoin - starting with the erroneous title: "The problem with forking and creating two coins."

    1. Remember this picture ? It was a very strong and cool message from around 2014 . Well, sadly it's not true anymore.

    4. Core's own reasoning doesn't add up: If segwit requires 95% of last 2016 blocks to activate, and their fear of using a hardfork instead of a softfork is "splitting the network", then how does a hardfork with a 95% trigger even come close to potentially splitting the network?

Buying more Vert tonight. I'm writing this more to justify it to myself and my woman than to anyone else, but you're welcome to read.

For some time now, I've had the "hunch" if you will that Bitcoin is not the perfect deus ex machina creation some of us have held it up as being. Post-Gox, post-weeks of media/public narrative traps the Bitcoin Foundation and other prominent Bitcoiners have gullibly skipped and hopped right into like a merry band of misfits, and the fact that the Bitcoin core protocol design has a couple of issues I've always found annoying: why a ten minute block time? It's just too long. The 2.5 minute variation Litecoin came up with is a perfect refinement (and only negligibly increases hypothetical error rates vs. a 10 minute time), and Vertcoin sticks with that.
The other concern I've had with Bitcoin is that it so clearly wasn't designed with the advent of ASICs, or anything like them, in mind. Our man Nakamoto was someone planning for a war pre-machine gun. ASICs are the machine guns, and if you say they don't change the landscape, you are a fool. (or the farthest thing from a fool; an ASIC miner :)
The best strategists are no match for unexpected leaps in technology.
I've done a backbreaking amount of reading and code skimming, and what I've come to a conclusion on is that Vertcoin is currently the most circulated, most fairly launched (i.e. no pre-mine), best branded and dev supported of any coin that -also- successfully wards off ASICs, both in practice and in theory.
And even further, Vertcoin is the one that pulls off ASIC resistance using the least number of "gears." Vertcoin clones using X11 are trumpeting a tactic that Vertcoin's developers specifically weren't interested in: overcomplexity as a means of defeating ASIC incentive.
If you read what Vertcoin's devs have said on the subject, as well as looked at how Vertcoin's N-factor change would hold up under various ASIC development models, what you see is that this works. A Vertcoin ASIC is of course allowed within the laws of physics and design, it's just not economical. Sort of like nuclear fusion at present stage of its development. By the time you build a working Vertcoin ASIC, the GPUs on the market are even better - and much cheaper.
Bitcoin was a bit like the expensive original Swiss automatic watches: beautiful, a wonder to behold, and simultaneously difficult and breathtaking to imagine one person coming up with all of it.
But much like an automatic watch, it is wildly inefficient by today's demanding standards because it is limited by its mechanical design, and the finite limits of practical mechanical precision. Bitcoin is mechanically crippled because it didn't foresee ASICs. Period. It may always be in use and valued by collectors, like an automatic watch, but it is simply no match for the quartz movement (which is Vertcoin, I believe).
Even a $20 quartz-driven Casio from Costco is infinitely more precise and trustworthy than a $12,000 Cartier automatic.
It's nothing personal. It's just mathematics. And there's a reason why Swatch, an ambitious little maker of sub-$60 quartz watches, eventually overtook nearly the entire Swiss watch market. Today, its parent Swatch Group owns Omega and Longines, some of the highest end luxury automatic makers. Eventually, simple and relentlessly precise dominates the marketplace. Appeals to heritage and aesthetic design are simply no match.
I believe N-factor scheduling as currently implemented in the Vertcoin protocol fends off ASIC development now and in the future. An ASIC, by its nature, must be custom built to a specific algo. The high memory requirements and scheduled changes just make this an economically unattractive prospect for ASIC makers. And there's a big difference between an actual ASIC present in the physical world, and a self-proclaimed ASIC designer on a forum going "yea dude, we could totally do Vert also." He might be able to do it, given enough financial resources and a large enough price per Vert, but the finished product that rolls off the factory floor certainly would not be substantively superior to available GPUs at the same time, certainly not significant enough to make it a sizable part of the network.
And I believe the KGW implementation fends off a variety of multipool dominance scenarios, although not all.
Combine this with the dev team's repeated assurances that ASIC resistance will be maintained at any cost (up to and including a hard fork), what you get is a coin that appears to be both by ideology and by design not capable of being centralized on ASIC-run farms and not likely of being centralized on one or two multipools for any long stretch of time.
Vertcoin is the two tour Vietnam vet who makes it openly known he owns a shotgun or two, and if anyone tries to rob a single thing in his trailer home, he will burn the entire place to the ground with himself inside. Not exactly the welcoming community that ASIC makers, who are already shouldering enormous speculative risk, are looking for.
Therefore, this coin will maintain a level of decentralization that Litecoin and Bitcoin can only dream of returning to and maintaining.
At this point, the problem is solved. Vertcoin is the quartz movement, here to stay and just biding its time until rapid mass adoption (remember that quartz watches didn't take off immediately, either). And just as you can design and market a really complex quartz movement, you can make a Vert clone with all kinds of interesting additions to fend off purely hypothetical ASIC designers who are not constrained by worldly concerns. These clones are like the specialty watch that promises waterproof operation until 1000 meters depth (as if you'd ever get a chance to test it). Sure, they may find a niche market, but quartz movement is quartz movement and that technology is here to stay and it works perfectly.
And aside from all this, I think there's a lot of money on the sidelines aching to get into the next big crypto - there's also money that's been scared off by Bitcoin's PR stains (Silk Road, Karpeles/Mt. Gox, etc).
The first one to show the marketplace it is money, precisely like Bitcoin but without the baggage and the mystery and ASIC Achilles Heel -and- with the burgeoning fanaticism of Doge, without any of the dumb... well, I believe that one is going to be worth very much indeed in no time at all.
Thanks for reading gentlemen.
