I wanted to use Dash Nexus but when I tried a few years ago I could not register my masternodes and gave up trying. This was at the same time my posts were being blocked (censored) on Dash Forum and the only place I could post my messages to get unblocked was here on Dashcentral. I don't know if there was any connection or not but anyway I haven't tried registering my MN since.

I feel that we should all move to the Dash Nexus platform, provided there is no censoring, because it has many features DashCentral does not and we have invested a small fortune on building it up. However I feel a resource as important as our governance systems, like Dash Nexus, should have the source code handed over to the DAO . Then teams can bid to maintain and build on it. We did not have a mechanism in place previously for ownership of IP, but now we do. If the original team are competitive and provide a good service then they will still receive funds to build and maintain the software we have paid for but it is essential that the IP for DashNexus be owned by the network.

I am not going to vote in $3,500 a month for some vague promises to "implement some improvements" and keep the service online.

Why the fuck has this project still not been handed over to the DIF, or open sourced? I am not okay to send more funding just so they can threaten to take the service down again later. Keeping a server running is cheap as hell and definitely doesn't cost $3000 a month. There are plenty of bored MNO developers around who would be able maintain this software for free as a hobby. If you can't afford it out of your own pocket, that's fine but find someone else who can. What you DON'T do is just shut down a service that the DAO has paid over $250,000 for, that is the total value paid out to Nexus according to Dashwatch.

It's like DashForce all over again. The MNOs should have demanded that the intellectual property be owned by the DIF, and in the end when it got defunded, all of it went to rot. Don't be like DF, do the right thing.

Yes for continued maintenance funding.

While i personally don't use Nexus very much if at all, I think its in Dash's best interest to keep it alive until it can be migrated to run off the Masternodes themselves once we have Evo functionality.

I will echo AshFrancis though that it would be good for Nexus code to be owned by the netowork in some way, so that if they do shut down it can be revived down the line.

Thank you Yuri for covering the costs thus far. Whilst I still think DC retains the majority of the audience, Nexus has a really strong feature set and serves new MNOs and POs very well. Perhaps in time it could become the leading governance portal.

I would like to ask what would be necessary for the Nexus team to either open source their code or license their code to DCG (with rights to sublicense) to protect the DAOs investment. Though I fully appreciate the Nexus team have made their own investment in this too.

Seems like too much to ask for maintenance IMHO. Also a bit more clarity to where the money is going would be cool.
