TL;DR yes, it's still decentralized, no it isn't perfectly anonymous. From the Darkcoin (now Dash) Wikipedia: "It adds privacy to transactions by combining identical inputs from multiple users into a single transaction with several outputs. Due to the identical inputs, transactions usually cannot be directly traced, obfuscating the flow of funds." The nodes ...

why not to use OP_RETURN output script to burn coins?

Well, BTC limitation is not a true. But yes, sha256 world is not quite big. Mining btc on antpool will give you basic statistic, it's depends on your local costs and power limits more than the your Antminer can do) Ok, I have custom build S5 with 4 hash boards that can provide ~2Th on freq@275(this is my own limitations). Okay back to PnL, so I'm able to ...

Monero - A cryptocurrency that uses ring signatures, a type of cryptography that enables untraceable transactions. It is extremely unlikely that a transaction can be traced to a particular user. Monero is based on the CryptoNote protocol and possesses significant algorithmic differences relating to blockchain obfuscation DASH - rebranded from "Darkcoin" to ...

I haven't used Dash, but they say it's based on Bitcoin-QT (from Bitcoin Core). Assuming they operate similarly, then in order to recover coins, you need both your wallet.dat file and your passphrase. If you don't have them both, your coins would be lost. So you should keep secure and reliable backups. Some wallet clients can give you a "mnemonic phrase" ...

Might want to examine Section 5.2 of a Dash White Paper. Here is the relevant code concerning Dash's monetary policy. It is difficult to project the exact amount of Dash currency that will come into existence because it appears to be a function of network difficulty, not block number or time. However, hard limits in the code appear to set upper and lower ...

You can't use AntMiner S7 miner for Monero. Only for Bitcoin. ASIC miners like AntMiner are configured to calculate specific algorithms only (in this case AntMiner calculates SHA256 hashes). Monero uses a different one. There are currently no Monero algorithms (CrytoNight) ASIC solutions, that is the reason the hash rate of the network is low.

How many address formats are there in dash? Dash seems to be pretty similar to bitcoin when it comes to address and transaction formats. You have your typical P2PK, P2PKH, P2SH. Here is how to generate a standard P2PKH address (and therefore also a P2PK address). var bip39 = require('bip39'); var hdkey = require('hdkey'); var createHash = require('create-...

The Trezor doesn't actually only derive at specific derivation paths. Rather it has to be given a derivation path, and the Trezor web wallet software only uses predefined ones. However you can use another tool that connects to the Trezor and specify your own derivation paths. Trezor has a command line tool as part of their python library that you can use. ...

From its api info page, dashblockexplorer.com uses insigth api, and so just append to the url: &pageNum=# For example, for the next page (#1, as it starts on zero): https://dashblockexplorer.com/api/txs/?block=990001&pageNum=1 Last page should be pageNum = pagesTotal-1

You would have to create 2 masternodes and you would earn double the amount of Dash, and run separate nodes, probably on different computers as Dash requirements are sort of high. Also you would need a server running 24/7 with 2 different IPs for the nodes.

Dash Masternodes are archival full nodes. They enable the PrivateSend and InstantSend feature. Masternodes get to vote on funding and governance proposals. Masternodes are paid for these services with 45% of the mining reward. A Masternode needs to put up a collateral of 1,000 Dash, have a dedicated IP address and may not be offline for more than 1 hour in ...

It means this receive is due to output number 0 of the listed transaction. Transactions can have multiple outputs (and usually do), and it is possible that more than one of them pays you. If that is the case, they will be listed as separate "transactions" in the UI, but their output will be distinct.

A transaction is confirmed by including it in a block. This means that you have to mine a block which includes the transaction. You can do this using the generate command.

Each project may have different specific requirements for what is deemed a valid transaction, but generally an unspent transaction must be checked against all previous transactions in the blockchain to make sure it has not been referenced as an input (vin) to another tx. Bitcoin stores a database of unspent transaction outputs (UTXO), to do this check more ...

The mining software (darcoin-cpu-miner- in dashpay github). It used getwork method. I changed to cpuminer which uses getblocktemplate and supports x11 also. After that I run my altcoin mining. Then it started working.

The explorers are not synced with each other; they display different blocks. It seems like Dash's testnet has been reset multiple times so chain.so is using one version of the testnet which dash.siampm.com is using a different version of the testnet. This means that they are using different blockchains. Thus your transactions will only appear correctly on ...

I found the answer. However please correct me if there's I'm wrong in explaining this. Basically, once we have inputs for the block, we hash the data. This hashing can be achieved using multiple techniques viz. SHA256, scrypt, X11, etc. The issue with generating a hash for the genesis was I used scrypt algorithm to generate the hash. You may come across ...

Yes, you should be able to use a Bitcoin JSON-RPC client to interact with JSON-RPC servers for other cryptocurrencies if they are using software that is based on Bitcoin Core (which most are). Such JSON-RPC clients and libraries don't really have anything in them that is Bitcoin specific; they just handle the connection to the RPC server for you and return ...

Mine as long as possible, turn off only when needed. I haven't check Dash P2Pool, but most payouts use some form of PPLNS (Pay Per Last N Shares) payout (although some have different methods to calculate it), so the longer you're offline, the lower the payout will be if you hit a block (since your %age of the submitted shares will be lower). This is ...

Technically, there is nothing special about the 1BitcoinEaterAddressDontSendf59kuE address, if someone by chance did manage to find the private key for it they could spend the bitcoins there. The reason it is trusted as unspendable is that to find a private key for a given address is impossible with our current knowledge of elliptic curve cryptography (and ...

Don't make cloud mining contracts! A lot of cloud mining providers are just scammers. The network's cumulative hash rate of Dash varies a lot but tends to go up and below 3 TH/s a lot. Currently, the block reward is at (converted) 261.96 USD. It goes down by 7.1% per year. Dash's block time is 3.5 minutes. Think about it: We can approximate the total money ...

The Antminer S1 produces SHA-256d hashes, but Dash uses the X11 hashing algorithm for its proof of work. The Antminer S1 cannot be used to mine Dash.
