What should the top priorities be for BitShares RIGHT NOW?
« on: December 19, 2014, 05:48:49 PM »

Please give a few answers and we will compile them. 

From there I will set up a poll and we will look at those as the Foundational Milestones that are chosen by the community as the top priorities.  I am going to use this to help find delegates to help with the completion of these. 

Thank you for your time.

Let me begin:  We need the light client to be sleek, easy to use and bug free.

I'm just going to dump a bunch of things that are important to achieve in the short to medium term. They are ranked in order of priority (IMHO):
1) DevShares
2) Release of the stable, well-tested BitShares upgrade to the 1.0 blockchain protocol supporting the following:
  • Offline transaction signing
  • Multisig
  • UIA assets with all the special features (proposal voting, multsig issuer/manager, freezing/seizing funds, whitelist, etc.)
  • Separate voter keys for only changing votes on a balance but not spending it
3) Upgrade of BitShares full client allowing for the easy use of the above features by the user. Continued improvements on stability and UI.
3) Better information available on website to teach people what BitShares is about and explains how it achieves its goals (FAQs, more blogs by bytemaster, whitepapers).
3) Light marketing/advertising (coinmarketcap, specific sub-reddits).
4) Lightweight client (blockchain.info style) that only supports transferring assets (BitAssets, IOU, BTS) on web and mobile platforms.
4) Gateways (companies with bank accounts providing on- and off-ramps for fiat, such as USD and EUR, and managing the corresponding fiat IOUs on the BitShares blockchain).
5) Lightweight client upgrade that supports basic voting features (delegates with BTS, proposals with IOUs) with optional separate voting key, multisig balances (with one of the keys held by the service provider) that are easy-to-use and use multi-factor authentication.
5) Extensive documentation of the code base to reduce the learning curve of getting more devs involved.
6) Heavier marketing that is directed more to the masses.
6) Lightweight client upgrade that supports market features.
7) Other BitShares features (with support in full client and later lightweight client) such as DNS and Vote features, and then Turing complete scripting.

1) Light Weight Client
2) Lots of quality documentation (ie: my blog)
3) Gateways

4) Quality marketing materials promoting Bitshares to the crypto community, libertarian community, etc, which reference them to the above quality documentation, and to less technical pages which describe the benefits of bitshares in clear terms.

5) Press releases / Interviews with media members / Articles by journalists in the crypto community which explain the features and benefits of bitshares.    For example: One article about Counterparty and Smart contracts comes out and it goes up 300%.  Bitshares will be able to do this as well, but nobody knows or cares, we need articles to actually discuss us and make people aware of our amazing features.

6) Business partnerships which will make use of Bitshares features.  Press releases announcing these partnerships once they are ready.

More of the same.. Success requires utility; community; developers.

Utility is coming along nicely and the core devs are strong but we need more investors. We need more people buying into BitShares and then into bitAssets and then playing those markets.

Put the Linux build into the main Ubuntu repository or at least setup a PPA, so that users do not need to build their own. Bare in mind that many of the established cryptosavvy crowd are Linux users, so make it trivial for them to fall this way.

Make it trivial for altcoin holders to sell their other coins directly into BTS. Perhaps start with getting bter.com and others to have BTS/LTC markets and suck those coins dry.

Prepare for easy wins.. engage mass media's increasing curiousity. They need to fill time and space, so make it easy.. perhaps spend time one on one educating key press contacts to what bitUSD and other core elements might do.
-Press kit but also perhaps targeted press releases.
-Be prepared to respond proactively with marketing and media engagement at key moments, like when the UK.gov and others make positive steps to support cryptocurrencies and assets.. see https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/digital-currencies-call-for-information will follow from the close 3rd Dec.

Get more developers.. keep an eye out or have a standing open call.

Put in place whatever is required to ensure we understand the Chinese; Indian; or whatever other markets there are. We appear to have a strong Chinese engagement but shore that up.. and grow outside English communities, as that is a big advantage over others.

Perhaps look at what can be done to get existing financial businesses to engage and invest.. I don't know enough about what exists but perhaps there are brokerage firms who have too many clients and not enough clear opportunities.

and the most important priority right now is - vote for my delegate  ;D

Also, this may be putting the cart before the horse, but our merchant adoption is pretty much non-existent right now.

Also,

1. Getting listed on one of the top exchanges (BTCChina, OKCoin, Bitfinex or Bitstamp).
2. Getting bitUSD accepted on one of the top crypto marketplaces.

Yes!

Btc38 takes bitCNY now, thats a great step.

We really need to get into Bitstamp plus one major Chinese exchange.
