Most of 100% delegates don't provide Asset feeds - why?
« on: February 01, 2015, 09:53:58 AM »

I am curious why so many 100% delegate don't provide feeds. Without feeds our decentralized exchange will not operate, so it is a really important task.

So why do this 100% delegates don't provide feeds?

1. dev-trial.misc.nikolai
2. dev0.nikolai
3. elmato
4. developer.vikram
5. media.bitscape
6. delegate-dev1.btsnow
7. delegate-dev2.btsnow
8. dev0.theoretical
9. delegate.rgcrypto
10. dev.nathanhourt.com
11. delegate-dev3.btsnow
12. delegate-dev4.btsnow

why are so many core developer in this group?

I noticed this too.

I understand that some delegates can't but I wouldn't have thought it would be too hard for devs.

Daily feed better than no feed at all?

Feed price  is the basic responsibility of delegate,right?

I think this is a very important observation of how the current system allows delegates to drop responsibilities safely because they're holding the skills they were hired to do hostage. Right now it's just price-feeds, but what else could happen in the future?

I would like to point out that a number of these 100% delegates are not so technically inclined, but were voted up for their other contributions that would be funded by their delegate position.

Of all the information regarding delegate setup etc there really isn't much regarding feeds, and it is considered an optional element because of this I think.

I think rather than singling out the 100% delegates though, if you just make the feeds part of the standard for all delegates for their setup and provide clear documentation on that portion of the process, then it should fix itself.

I think there are a good number of people who can assist in setting up feeds. If majority of 3% delegates can set up and pay to publish feeds, there's really no reason for 100% delegates to not do so.

if this is the case, we should come to a better solution. If more than 51 delegates have legal concerns we have no market at all. i would like to hear direct from some of this delegates what is the cause of not providing feeds?

Yes, this could distract and burden the developers' mind.

I think this should be very simple. Rules should apply equally to any delegate, if you don't provide feeds you will be voted out. If you happen to be one of our core developers and are not providing feeds due to some legal reasons than get someone else to run delegate for you and pay them 3-5% as it is already being done by bytemaster and Stan. Unless there is some more serious reason for some of our developers not providing price feeds that we are not aware of we should start voting them out or we should get explanation from them why are they not doing very important part of the job they are being paid to do.
