New core developer 100% delegate dev0.theoretical
« on: December 18, 2014, 11:46:19 PM »


I'm the forum user formerly known as drltc [1].  I'm a full-time I3 team member and I'm seeking to run a 100% delegate, dev0.theoretical.

I've been a member of this forum since early days, participating in multiple pre-launch technical discussions.  One of my proposals eventually evolved into the delegate system, a fundamental part of the BitShares architecture that differentiates us from most of our competitors.

I'm a full stack software developer capable of working on any part of the BitShares client.  I diagnosed stack overflow as the root cause of intermittent crashes and instability in the BitShares client by using GDB to step through assembly instructions one at a time.  I've added several RPC's and some other functionality, audited others' commits, and I've both filed and fixed quite a few Github tickets.  I'm quite comfortable with computer science, mathematics and economics, which helps clarify my thoughts on the theoretical aspects of what we're doing.  I'm also a reasonably competent at JavaScript and web stuff (although I'm not always totally up-to-date on the latest technologies and best practices in the area).

I'm currently focused on testing, in particular addressing technical debt in our testing infrastructure.

My main area of interest is design and implementation of core blockchain features.

The DevShares name and concept was my idea (although what we're actually implementing ended up being a little different from my vision).

I could probably think of some other qualifications I have, but I think that's enough -- if you haven't decided I deserve a 100% delegate by now, I don't think you're going to.

It warms my heart that you're working for us and not a competitor. :)

@theoretical: Is there a reason why you (and nikolai and adam.follow-my-vote and nathan hourt and all the init delegates controlled by i3 (aren't they?)) do not produce price feeds?

Also are you paid by AGS funds in parallel? I don't know why there is no full transparency on this.

I used to vote for all these delegates and today stopped voting for them (except nikolai) because I realised that they don't produce price feeds..From today I am thinking to vote only delegates that provide accurate price feeds. I would like to know as well why these delegates do not produce price feeds..

Speaking for myself only, I plan to start publishing feeds, but with the holidays I haven't had time to get a price feed script up and running.

Add to that:

- I want to fully audit any script written by others before using it, as it will have access to my delegate's private key.
- I don't want to run exactly the same script as everyone else, as the feed will be more robust if each delegate uses their own data sources and methodologies.  Thus, I am copying bits from several different scripts floating around.
- I want to be sure the script is tested and rock solid before I let it run unattended.  Not publishing a feed at all is better than providing incorrect or out-of-date feeds.

Also are you paid by AGS funds in parallel?

At current exchange rates, a 100% delegate's monthly earnings are far below the market rate for a full-time professional software developer.  bytemaster and I negotiated a fair price for my services, which is paid by I3 -- from which I believe AGS funds are the ultimate source but subsequent comments in this thread have made me realize I'm not one hundred percent clear where I3 gets that money.  I'm a software developer, not an accountant.

I am giving him a discount equal to the USD value of my delegate income calculated on a daily basis.

So for every dollar worth of BTS my delegate earns, bytemaster pays me a dollar less from AGS funds I3.

I don't know why there is no full transparency on this.

The amount of money I make is a rather personal bit of information.

If the exchange rate increases to the point where my delegate is earning substantially more than the value I provide, we can discuss the situation at that time.

So AGS funds aren't gone?  Transparency here is like looking through a brick wall.

You do realise you're working for a blockchain, right?

People shouldn't be worried about our core devs "getting too much" money though. We should be proud of finally having a company where it is the developers, rather than the upper management bullshitters, who gets the fat bonuses. What will happen at some point is that a delegate begins to announce a "max salary" in bitUSD and publicly burn any money they receive beyond that. As soon as just a few people are doing this, peer pressure (or even votes) will force everyone to do this. Transparency will come by itself when we get so big it becomes a requirement, until then we can simply trust our core devs.
