A Toast to Toast
« on: April 20, 2015, 01:08:54 PM »

Toast has been a great member of our team but has always been a free agent and not an employee.   He came to BTS to produce the DNS chain but that has been absorbed by BTS.

He is currently serving as a liaison to BTS Music team which was progressing largely without technical support from the core team until Toast went over to help.   I recently talked with Toast about the future for BTS Music and am gathering the requirements that they would need to launch on the BTS chain rather than their own chain.   

To my knowledge Toast is actually bringing new money into the BTS ecosystem and is still a believer in our future.   I applaud Toast for finding a way to pay his bills while still contributing to our ecosystem full time without having to sell all of his BTS.   

Toast is sending any BTS his delegates earn to the angel account and we are using those funds to keep the other developers fed. 

To Clarify:  Music is still planning their own chain and that hasn't changed.  I am merely attempting to find out what it would take to CHANGE that while still providing a win for NOTE holders.   It is possible that nothing could change that.  COB and Eddie have done said nothing and my position has long been a desire to bring them into BTS.

I totally agree. He also used to be very active hear in the forum. We just don't see anything from him anymore .. and that's too bad

Woops .. that's news to me. What was the outcome of your talk?
It seems toast is working on BitShares MUSIC and not for peertracks? Does he get a fair compensation there?

I would have preferred to read this from toast himself but I am ok this way too.

@toast, what's your take in your delegates? I recall you say they it would be a great test for the system to have them voted out. Though, reading above makes me like to add them to my slate again .. now what?

Toast left?!

When did this happen? Is there an official thread announcing this or should I create four or five threads inquiring about it?  Yes he's probably posted in this thread by now acknowledging such as fact, but I need proof!

:P

right. "hiring teenagers" i believe was what i read a few places back in the day. now it's "toast was all bitshares haddddd!" from some.

elvis has left the building lel

i'm pretty sure i and the rest of you have a stash of notes which toast is working on thanks to having bitshares ags/pts. so i don't really see how toast has left meh or any of us.

but sure so long toast!  i'll read you on another forum.

guess we'll have to hope this dan guy (if that's his real name) can save us.

Not this forum member I hope!  ;D  I would gladly have eaten humble pie though, BM's not always right but Toast has been brilliant.

think of it this way .

The development fund of BTS------ namely AGS , has a lot of stake in the Music system  .

If Music will be to the moon , that means the development budget of BTS will have great increase in value  , and be worth to compensate the BTS developers .

In fact , we would want to help all of the DACs who have gave AGS fund significant stake to succeed .

Absolutely!  We are closely economically aligned, almost like that was the plan!  +5%

Thanks for the clarification BM.. the vacuum of silence here on matters like this creates a lot of crazy new stories.
