At 4pm EDT/8pm UTC Ernesto Contreras of Dash Core Group comes on the Dash Podcast to talk about Dash adoption in Latin America
The Bitcoin exchange rate faced a significant drop not a long time ago, so a lot of miners think that mining this coin is not as profitable as before. However, Bitcoin is stabilizing, so now is the time to start mining it again. And, definitely, it is better to do this with reliable and efficient software.
There are a lot of operating systems for managing Bitcoin mining, so making a final choice can be a rather complicated task. This guide is here to help you — it describes features, advantages and disadvantages of the most popular software.
Hive OS: an all-in-one solution
Hive OS is a highly secure and stable mining platform based on the Linux distribution of Ubuntu. Besides, you will have no difficulties with its installation, setup and use. However, if you have any questions, you can always get in touch with the support team. The support is provided 24/7, so you will get help very quickly. There is also an extensive knowledge base that you can use.
Hive OS significantly simplifies even large farms’ management. A lot of things can be automated. For instance, automatic control of the fans, execution of commands according to the schedule, etc. Apart from this, switching between pools, wallets or coins takes only a second. The list of miners is updated regularly, just like the list of features — the Hive OS team is constantly working on the system considering the needs of the community. With Hive OS it is also possible to control the workers remotely.
Hive OS allows mining Bitcoin on ASICs and GPU rigs, offers its own pool and custom firmware for ASICs. It is an all-in-one solution that you can use in order to make the management process simpler and increase your profits.
СGMiner: suitable for experienced owners of AMD cards
CGMiner is an open-source miner focused specifically on mining Bitcoin (although some other coins can also be mined here). It supports GPU, ASIC and CPU mining, and is available for the following platforms: Windows, Linux and OS X. While using all the traditional features (for instance, overclocking) you won’t have to pay a dev fee.
However, this miner is not that suitable for inexperienced users — you at least need to have some knowledge of GitHub. Another thing to keep in mind is that CGMiner doesn’t work well with Nvidia cards.
Cudo Miner: a nice option for beginners
Cudo Miner is a simple to use crypto mining platform. Remote management, monitoring and overclocking — these and other standard features are available. Cudo Miner also offers automated mining and auto coin switching. Besides, if necessary, you can create custom templates in order to increase performance of your devices.
On the other side, Cudo Miner doesn’t support ASICs. One more unpleasant thing is that the fees are based on the amount of cryptocurrency mined in the last 30 days, and they are pretty high. For example, for less than 0.005 BTC, the fee is 6.5%.
SimpleMining: the choice of GPU owners
SimpleMining is a mining OS platform supporting all modern Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Using it, you can take bulk actions on multiple devices. Standard features like overclocking and undervolting are available as well. Besides, there are a lot of miner programmes to choose from, but you can still add a custom miner if necessary. But please keep in mind that it is impossible to mix AMD and Nvidia in one rig.
Hashr8: for users who know everything about mining
Hashr8 is an operating system suitable both for ASICs and GPU rigs. The system also supports many pools and miners. You can monitor devices not only in the web interface, but also via the mobile application. Support is provided around the clock. Besides, Hashr8 can be used for free — this option is available to miners using up to 3 devices inclusive. At the same time, there are no other restrictions — free users can use all the functions of the system.
However, despite the above-mentioned benefits, Hashr8 also has some disadvantages. Firstly, you can contact the support team only using the form on the website or by email, so there is no chance for getting help instantly. The website also has no FAQ, so if you run into a problem, you are likely to have to solve it yourself. Secondly, Hashr8 is a rather unstable system, which can affect your income.
Awesome Miner: suitable for centralized mining management
Awesome Miner allows managing and monitoring the mining operations, and supports ASICs and GPU rigs (CPU mining is possible too). Using it, you can perform operations both on individual miners and the groups, and build templates for easier configuration. Note that Awesome Miner can be used for free, but on certain conditions: you can have up to 2 miners, while the list of available features is rather limited.
Awesome Miner runs only on Windows, but you can still connect it to mining software running on Linux. Apart from this, it can be difficult for a new user to understand how this solution works, as its interface is not that convenient and intuitive.
What Software to Choose?
Obviously, the final decision completely depends on your needs, but we recommend choosing a universal system that supports GPU rigs and ASICs. By doing this, you will have freedom of action. A similar recommendation can be applied to GPU rigs — if you prefer them, choose a system that works both with Nvidia and AMD cards.
Make your choice wisely, and have profitable Bitcoin mining!

BLS signatures are great. They are really valuable when doing multi party signing.
Schnorr signatures take more communication between parties.
The Schnorr implementation on bitcoin cash would save Dash space on chain. I believe it is safe. A Schnorr signature can use the same addresses and keys. Since the Bitcoin cash Schnorr implementation is not multi party my dislike of Schnorr does not apply.
BLS sigs could be used for payments that would require different addresses. Just make sure to gaurd against the related key attack. BLS for payments would have simmilar savings as Schnorr would. BLS for payments would have HUGE multisig advantages.
anything in this post touching transactions is a hard fork.
DCG should focus on platform!

It was a good week for Dash as well as the Alt sector. And we gained a rank, which is always nice. Only 24 to go. I should have updated graphs next week that use the 7 day data rather than the daily data.

It's fun when Dash and crypto go up in purchasing power. It is easy to lose track of things. That's why we get things like FOMO or capitulation selling. Thought it would be a good time to remind people about addressable market research to figure out what the price of Dash "should" be if and when it reaches parity with FIAT monies.
The prize is global adoption of crypto. The metric we're looking at in this research is USD value.
The marketcap of Dash currently is around $800 million. The addressable market is around $40 trillion (40 million millions). At least it was before all this covid printer go brbrbr nonsense. So we can consider that an extremely conservative denominator.
At the moment, Dash has 0.002% of the addressable market (or 2/ 1 millionths). It is very very small.
At all time high, Dash was 0.038% of the addressable market.
I happen to think Dash has accomplished much already and that it is posed well to accomplish a great deal more adoption. So we can get excited when Dash goes up 7% in a day, but the reality is, it is so extremely undervalued relative to what it could be.
Obviously this sort of analysis is very subjective. Nonetheless it is useful to know the following numbers;
At 0.01% of addressable market dash's unit price would be: $415
At 0.1% of addressable market dash's unit price would be: $4,156
At 1% of addressable market dash's unit price would be: $41,569
At 10% of addressable market dash's unit price would be: $415,693
At 50% of addressable market dash's unit price would be: $2,078,467
When Dash reached parity of 100% of the addressable market, Dash's unit price would be: $4,156,935

Dear dash network,
This past year there was a proposal that would have funded a business, and the funding would have gone to fund retooling bitcoin ATMs into Dash ATMs. I believe that this proposal did not pass.
I would like to do an After Action Analysis of this particular proposal. I want to do an exhaustive review of all the public discussion on this proposal. If possible I would like to have a call with the individual who made the proposal, and the CEO of the company if they're not the same person.
If you have some information about this proposal please link it below or DM it. Any
