It pains me to have to ask for more funds while we have client funds outstanding and no idea when, and even how much, it will be possible to pay back.
But the YunBi BTC/BitUSD market is now operational and the market maker bot is ready to create liquidity, but since all of our CFSUSD funds are locked up on bter there's no other way than ask the community for more money. It's important we get YunBi liquid as soon as possible so shapeshift can resume bitUSD service again.
It's hard to say but I do believe that YunBi seem more competent than bter and I don't think we have to fear their cold wallet can get hacked the same as bter's was.
If you want to help fund the liquidity of the bot, then go to the internal exchange and search for CFSUSDA:bitUSD. It is sold like CFSGOLD, 1:1 for bitUSD with a 0.1% fee, and will increase in NAV as the bot makes a profit off market making. Eventually we will merge this temporary asset with CFSUSD once the full situation from bter is understood. We will try to keep a minimal amount of the funds on YunBi, and deposit and withdraw them according to the bots needs.
There will be an early funder reward for CFSUSDA similar to other CFS assets, but since the bter hack made everything a lot more complicated we won't announce what the reward will be until we know the outcome of the bter situation.
Meanwhile we will continue to work on how to get the CFSUSD and CFSGOLD funds out of bter and find out the best model for compensating clients.
