xchain.info gateway needs feedback!
« on: January 13, 2015, 09:02:40 PM »

There is now a preview website for the Bitcoin/Bitshares Gateway at http://xchain.info.

See also the faq,

http://xchain.info/#/components/faq/view.html

I'm interested to hear opinions on the site design, explanation, functionality etc keeping in mind that it is a (functional) early preview.

It still refers to BitShares X in the title.

The landing page is confusing..

The tech looks good.

I think X is part of "X-Chain Gateway".

I guess it is, but it can cause some confusion. Maybe switch to BitShares/Bitcoin X-Chain Gateway?

Is this the GATEBTC gateway? Is it actually operational and has volume? We need to get this going asap and get a video of how to use it from btc to bitbtc and bitusd

On this website,

Is it possible to show the total BTC moved in/out?

How many GATEBTC are in at the moment?

Also, possibly, show the BTS/GATEBTC market stats?

The api calls to fetch the two json files are really slow, it's causing a flash of unstyled content whenever you click to get a new page. Are you polling the bitshares client directly for the order history on the backend? If so that is probably why, the order history rpc call is really slow so you should probably cache the data.

It's also a little hard to figure out what's actually happening in those transactions. You could probably include blockchain.info links as well for the BTC transactions?

Great.

Next, find 6 trusted delegates to run the daemons and implement the BTC reserve with a 4-of-6 multisig. The 4-of-6 limitation is to comply with current standardness requirements of the current Bitcoin reference client. After version 0.10, we might be able to expand this to something like 10-of-15. See discussion here for explanation.

Later, maybe we can use threshold signatures to protect the BTC reserve and implement the decentralized BitShares standard gateway, as described here for any ECDSA-compatible altcoins we are interested in trading.

I suspect this is the table css animation which I struggled with. It works well enough as a nice visual cue when a single tx appears/updates, but isn't good during pagination/initial load.

I just disabled it, so hopefully that improves things.

Yes, the initial plan was to link the txid's to blockchain.info and also to your bitsharesblocks for the bts ones. I've held off thinking I may try to develop those views myself.

Agreed. Total GATEBTC on issue and the quantity of BTC backing need to be prominent. I like the idea of charts too.

Why has this not received much attention?

For a non-technical person like me, can anyone compare this with monsterer's efforts?

They both work in similar way. One of the obvious difference:

This one is 1:1 exchange with Gateway IOU while monsterer's is 1:1 BTC/bitBTC. Both has its own pros and cons though.
