Deletion[edit]

I dont think this article should be deleted, but it sounds like an advert too much, ive edited it a little and intend to eidt further.--Nzoomed (talk) 03:05, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

I feel the Afd can be removed now, ive made the article as neutral as possible, if anyone feels like changing further, feel free.

If there is no discussion here in a week, ill remove the Afd.--Nzoomed (talk) 04:10, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Deletion discussions typically run for at least 7 days, and it was nominated for reasons unrelated to this article's content, but because the nominator felt the subject lacked notability.

It will sort itself out before long. Agyle (talk) 04:28, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Forum post as reference 123[edit]

A user on the bitcointalk.org forum is being used as source for the early mining distribution.

This source is a self-published forum post which is explicitly forbidden by Wikipedia's verifiabilty guidelines (WP:SPS). As such, I think this source should be removed and/or replaced with a more reliable one and the section in dispute be rewritten in more neutral language (WP:NEUTRAL) and corrected for grammar (WP:STYLE). Raze182 (talk) 07:27, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Sources were submitted to Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard for community input.

The consensus is that self-published and user-generated sources such as bitcointalk.org and devtome.com are a clear violation of WP:RS policies.

Welke cryptocurrency in opkomst

Moving forward, I'll add relevant templates to the sources until suitable ones can be found. Failing this, or removal of the templates I'll request a WP:DISPUTE resolution as a next step.

Dispute resolution has been requested: [Dispute resolution noticeboard]. Raze182 (talk) 00:39, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

The devtome article uses figures easily verifiable on the dash blockchain and the tone of the article is fair.

Especially this page has an undue amount of dash created material and the overall tone is one of salesmanship.

The problem is that blog and forum posts are generally prohibited as sources by Wikipedia guidelines (see WP:USERGENERATED).

How to Buy Dash – A Beginner’s Guide

Direct links to the blockchain, however, should be fine. Statements like "abnormally fast" are considered weasel words (WP:WEASEL) unless there's some verifiable consensus as to what's considered "abnormally fast" which would need to be sourced. As it stands now, it's just editorializing.

The statement "claims a fair launch" also needs to be sourced.

Regarding Dash created material, self-published information about yourself is acceptable provided it follows WP:SELFPUB guidelines. Raze182 (talk) 04:08, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Encyclopedic content[edit]

The article has had the following:

As of July 2017, Dash is the sixth most valuable cryptocurrency by market capitalization.[1]

This content keeps getting tweaked as Dash moves up and down the ladder.

This is not encyclopedic content -- WP is not a blog or ticker where we track this sort of thing, especially not for something as volatile as this. I considered if there was some kind of encyclopedic content that could be created from this source, like "The market capitalization of Dash is tracked" but that is trivia.

Jytdog (talk) 14:32, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I agree. Jtbobwaysf (talk) 06:17, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
I keep wondering if we need to do something about the market capitalization updates in all cryptocurrency-related articles.

First of all, I agree that this is hardly encyclopedic. Second, I doubt that coinmarketcap is a reliable source.

And third, we effectively promote coimparketcap and give it credibility. I would think we should mention price movements only if reliable sources write about them. Retimuko (talk) 19:34, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

yes and trends, not point data.

I moved some stuff out of the WP:LEDE as it was too long. Also cut this nonsense about dash venezuela, etc.

Dashforcenews, etc is for sure not a WP:RS for this article, as it is purely promotional. Jtbobwaysf (talk) 17:01, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Major cleanup[edit]

This whole page was either sourced to Dash or was unsourced. This is not how WP articles are written. There was one decent source; and that is what was left. Jytdog (talk) 18:44, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

That was quite a cleanup. I would think this puts the notability into question unless we find significant coverage in reliable sources.

Retimuko (talk) 18:47, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

 :) yep on both counts. i'm not leaping to AfD but will wait to see if anything emerges... i don't have time to hunt for refs on this right now. Jytdog (talk) 18:49, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
I added a couple, quite slim pickings when exluding the cryptorags. I didn't bother to add the dubious 2nd tier cryptorags, as I am wondering how long even the first tier ones will be accepted for AfD notability purposes (or even in articles to anchor content for that matter).

What Is Dash Cryptocurrency?

Jtbobwaysf (talk) 15:55, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

I think we are going to start seeing some proposals from User:Technoir2 who appears to be an entirely reasonable person and seems authentically interested in becoming a Wikipedian...

Jytdog (talk) 16:59, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

That's correct, I'm currently compiling a list of articles on Dash from reputable sources that I can use to construct an article and will propose each change on this page technoir2 (talk) 19:11, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Proposed changes[edit]

An edit request by an editor with a conflict of interest has now been answered.

Technoir2 (talk) 21:32, 5 June 2018 (UTC) proposes the following changes:

1.

Update the Dash logo image - Dash updated its visual identity in May this year (see www.dash.org/graphics)

2.

Add comment about Dash being the first cryptocurrency with a community governance and treasury system.

3. Add comment about Dash being the first cryptocurrency with instant payment confirmations.

The updated article would appear as follows:

Dash (formerly known as Darkcoin and XCoin) is an open sourcepeer-to-peercryptocurrency and decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).[1][2] It is the first cryptocurrency with a community governance and treasury system,[3] and the first cryptocurrency with instant payment confirmations.[4] Dash operates a system of transaction mixing that aims to improve privacy.[5] Dash is referred to as an Altcoin.[6]

An edit request by an editor with a conflict of interest has now been answered.

Technoir2 (talk) 10:10, 6 June 2018 (UTC) proposes the following changes:

1.

"Dash operates a system of transaction mixing that aims to improve privacy." --> "Dash operates a system of transaction mixing that aims to improve fungibility and privacy."

2.

"Dash is referred to as an Altcoin." --> "It launched on January 18th 2014 and is a codebase fork of Bitcoin."

3.

Add interwiki links for fungibility, privacy and mixing.

The updated article would appear as follows:

Reply #2 06-JUN-2018[edit]

Partially implemented

  1. As the sentence "it is the first cryptocurrency with a community governance and treasury system," is a word for word copy of the d'Anconia source, quote marks were added.
  2. The Stevenson source was omitted, as it does not add anything to the sentence that isn't already covered by the Galt source.
  3. The founder is prominently featured in the Aru source as being fundamental to the establishment of the subject currency on the date indicated, thus the subject's name was placed in the article.
  4. The term fungibility was not added, as the claim that anonymity creates fungibility is either (A) original research — or if it isn't — is (B) unreferenced by anything beyond Mr.

    Duffield's remarks to Mr. Aru in his interview.

  5. Due to the restrictions in place for this page, a limit to requested changes which override previously placed edit request material (such as that in your second edit request) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Sources Cointelegraph[edit]

I have posted on the RS noticeboard here Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#Cointelegraph_source about the source cointelegraph.com .

I also wanted to ask more in detail on this talk page about edit [1] by user Spintendo. Spintendo (talk ·contribs) can you please explain why you deleted two RS (one academic and the other an actual print magazine) and replaced them with cointelegraph?

I was reading this source [2] recently added to the article reads like promotion. Wondering outloud why there are so many other cointelegraph sources and little else. I really wonder if cointelegraph can be considered an RS for this article.

DASH Cryptocurrency: Complete Dash Coin Guide

Note here [3] that cointelegraph charges 1BTC for a press release. That's a lot of money, so what does this buy? Is this source really just a paid submission site for cryptocurrency promotion? Thought I would ping a few eyeballs to this @Jytdog:, @Smallbones:, @Retimuko: to comment as well. Jtbobwaysf (talk) 15:36, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I'd like to note that Cointelegraph is used as a reference in the WP articles on Bitcoin and Ethereum and that favourable coverage does not necessarily mean to untruthful coverage.

I chose Cointelegraph it because it's one of the most mainstream crypto media outlets and has been around for 5 years, so I expected you would consider it reliable enough. If you decide otherwise then I will have to abide by that. My latest proposed changes (beneath) refer to Forbes and Bitcoin.com, and I have future changes to propose that reference Arizona State University and City University London, so I hope for this article to end up using a mix of different sources, but Cointelegraph is by far the richest source of secondary information about Dash Technoir2 (talk) 15:44, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I have doubts about Cointelegraph.

It is one of many industry news outlets that sprung into existence virtually yesterday. They did not have a chance yet to establish any reputation. Very little if anything is known about their editorial practices. Many publications look like promotion.

What does dash cryptocurrency do

I would suggest using it sparingly. I don't like that the whole article is based on it. I understand that it would be hard to avoid such sources entirely, but, on the other hand, if a particular subject is covered by such sources only, I would question the notability of the subject. Retimuko (talk) 16:03, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Ok, I will attempt to source my information from a wider range of sources.

There certainly are many mentions of Dash in various RS, but not always providing the necessary detail. I hope that Cointelegraph is a sufficiently reliable source for some statements provided they are not controversial and overly self-serving? Technoir2 (talk) 16:15, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I didn't see this post until now, but in response to Jtbobwaysf, I didnt think that the City source (which is essentially a press release about the activities of people who work at City and not an "academic source") was necessary to substantiate the claim that DASH is an open source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and decentralized autonomous organization.

Talk:Dash (cryptocurrency)

The City source only tangentially refers to its professor doing studies on DAO's, and mentions DASH as something else they are working on. But to those with an uninitiated ear, there is no obvious connection made in that source that one implies the other. The City source certainly doesn't specify anything like the first sentence of the DASH Wikipedia article's subsection on DAO, which states which is a much more clearer description of DASH, despite the fact that this clearer sentence still needs two references to be made in the Wikipedia article.

As the Cointelgraph source was and still is in the article referencing that initial lead sentence, it was chosen by me as the lesser of two evils.

What does dash cryptocurrency do

The other "reliable source" you've mentioned that I removed, the North Bay Business journal, was an opinion piece that — it should be noted — is no longer in the article as a reference.  spintendo  04:03, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Proposed changes 3[edit]

An edit request by an editor with a conflict of interest has now been answered.

Technoir2 proposes the addition of the following section:

Masternodes

Dash masternodes are servers on the internet that host a copy of the Dash blockchain.[1] They are a type of full node,[1] relaying and validating transactions according to the network's consensus rules.[2]:ch.

1

In addition to the services provided by full nodes, masternodes perform governance of the network and enable Dash's InstantSend and PrivateSend functions.[1]

Masternodes must conform to a minimum set of hardware and networking requirements.[1] They receive 45% of all newly created Dash as compensation for their services.[3]

To prevent Sybil attacks (where an attacker creates a large number of masternodes to interfere with the network's operation), masternode operators are required to hold 1000 Dash per masternode.[1] This collateral can be moved at any time, but doing so results in the associated masternode going offline.[1]

According to Bitcoin.com, Dash was the first cryptocurrency to introduce masternodes.[4]

-- Technoir2 (talk) 15:26, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I added the Forbes source, excellent.

Can you please add the link to the antonopolos page in google books so we can link to it. I will then add that.

What does dash cryptocurrency do

Please feel free to ping me in your response. I didnt add the cryptorags. Jtbobwaysf (talk) 20:19, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

bitcoin.com as a source[edit]

I would suggest avoiding bitcoin.com as a source altogether.

What does dash cryptocurrency do

I believe it is widely known for practices incompatible with being an independent reliable source. It is owned by Roger Ver and company and is used for promotional purposes. Perhaps, it can be used very carefully to confirm some facts about itself, but not more than that.

Retimuko (talk) 17:46, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Ok, it's fine if we have to remove that last line. An alternative source for the same statement is https://cryptovest.com/news/what-are-masternodes-a-brief-introduction-to-running-validator-nodes/ or https://coincentral.com/what-are-masternodes-an-introduction-and-guide/ - would either of those qualify an an acceptable source for that statement @Retimuko:?

Technoir2 (talk) 17:50, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

In my view, all these sources like cointelegraph, coincentral, cryptovest and such are of this "barely acceptable" kind.

I would love to see them not used here at all. At least not so prominently. I would even say that if we cannot find two or free decent articles in some reputable sources (like CNN or BBC, for instance) then the subject is not notable enough. Retimuko (talk) 19:16, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I think these three (plus bitcoin.com) are not even barely acceptable and may be used only as a primary source (except on articles where the PR edits get so bad that the must be banned).

BTW, this http://www.northbaybusinessjournal.com/ is quite a nice source, maybe small, but it is a legit print newspaper (if i remember right) and far from a cryptorag. Indeed the article still needs another couple of good RS to be safe from AfD, but it might be passable as is... Jtbobwaysf (talk) 20:10, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Proposed changes 4[edit]

An edit request by an editor with a conflict of interest has now been answered.

Technoir2 proposes adding the following line to the introduction section:

The name 'Dash' is a portmanteau of 'Digital Cash'.

The updated section would appear as follows:

Dash (formerly known as Darkcoin and XCoin) is an open sourcepeer-to-peercryptocurrency and decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).[1][2] It is the first cryptocurrency with a community governance and treasury system,[3] and the first cryptocurrency with instant payment confirmations.[4] Dash operates a system of transaction mixing that aims to improve privacy.[5] The name 'Dash' is a portmanteau of 'Digital Cash'.[6] Dash is referred to as an Altcoin.[7]
