This is not fair for shorter, and the system will not work!!!!
Because people hold BITUSD can get BTS back at any time, with not market impact no matter how big the volume the settlement is.

If I'm a whale and holding a lot of BTS. And I want get more.
Here is what I need to do:
1. Keeping dump BTS in external market, at the same time buy BitUSD in internal market. This will cause the BTS price fall. (I'm a whale, and have enough BTS)
2. After the price is down  more than 5%(just a example) after 24 hours. I require a settlement in internal market, this will not make BTS price up (no market impact in settlement but only 1% price gap). I will get more BTS than before Step 1.
3. Buy BTS in external market, (maybe loss a little bit BTS compared to before Step 1).

The chance is very big that the BTS I earned in step 2 is more than what I lost in step 3. Because In step 2 I will make no market impact with only 1% price gap. In step3 as the BTS price is already drag down by myself, I can buy cheap BTS, even if the price raise when I buy BTS back.  It is likely the price will not raise to the price before Step 1.

The point here is the people who hold BITUSD do not need to drive the BTS price up when they convert BITUSD to BTS. (only 1% price gap to cover)
While shorter's have no chose, ever if they do not want this settlement.

Without the settlement rule, if people want convert BITUSD to BTS, they need to buy BTS with BITUSD, and it will move the BTS price up. That is what a free market behave. Settlement will not have market impact, this is the key, why BitAsset 3.0 will fail.

Settlement thing is not free market, which can be manipulated.

How do u think about this?

What I need to do is keep buy the BITUSD, and drive the BITUSD price up. The more BITUSD I buy, the more expensive BITUSD is, and the less BITUSD can be created with same mount of BTS.   This will keep moving the BITUSD price raise. And at some moment when succeed drive the BITUSD price up for more than x hours, I can request an settlement with only 1% lost, and I will not move the market at all, no mater how big volume I settled.
This is crazy.

The market will be completely controlled by whales.

The problem here is settlement will have a market impact. This is not a free market!

How do u think about this?

Not at any time, but at the price feed (not easily manipulated) and after 24+ hours (allowing the market time to correct from your attempted manipulation).

If you keep buying BitUSD further from the peg without real demand for BTS in the outside market then you will pay a high price without moving the feed.  If you force settlement you will lose money.  If you can control the outside price of all BTS then that *IS* the market price and you should speculate accordingly.   Fortunately the only way to harm shorts is to buy BitUSD... dump BTS on external markets... for them to settle at a loss.   But this is real market action and fair.  If you have enough BTS to push the price down by 1% in 24 hours then you signaled your move when you purchased BitUSD above market and again when you requested settlement which would likely cause the market to fall before you can sell your BTS.  Your gains on the BitUSD side would be offset by your losses on the BTS side.   Any way you slice it there are no guaranteed profits and every move you make is a PRICE SIGNAL and a valid price signal.   Buying BitUSD == Selling BTS

The new system seems far more fair to shorts than the old one.

Did not get you. why the settlement will cause the market to fall  Why I want to sell my BTS?

For every whale who buys bitUSD and then wants to dump BTS so they can convert the bitUSD back into more BTS, there is an equal and opposite whale who just shorted bitUSD, and wants to buy up BTS to drive the price up so they can profit.

Its a long vs short margin battle, just like any leveraged market, and whichever side breaks the other and forces them to cover at a loss wins.  Sometimes the shorts will win and sometimes the longs.

Buying BitUSD == Selling BTS

I'm not too good with all the mechanics of the proposed bitasset 3.0 system, but does this mean that BitUSD demand will no longer positively correlate with a higher BTS valuation?

Buy BitUSD with BTS = Selling BTS = internal demand for BitUSD , so it's not positive on BTS .

Buy BitUSD with fiat or BTC = external demand for BitUSD , good for BTS .

This depends on what they are spending to get bitUSD.
If people are putting fiat into bitUSD, it indirectly supports BTS.  They have to buy BTS first in order to convert.

But if people are trading BTS they already ahd for bitUSD, its kindof like selling BTS.

In theory the BTS price should be 3 times the price of all bitassets combined. Anything more is pure speculation on BTS increasing. So until there is enough external/internal demand for bitassets then there is not real reason for BTS to rise outside of speculation.

The demand for bitUSD required BTS collateral that makes value of BTS appreciated.

3. Buy BTS in external market, (maybe loss a little bit BTS compared to before Step 1).

That's basically what I thought of too: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,15775.msg202667.html#msg202667

A whale can manipulate the external price (and in consequence with some practice and good timing the price feed) at the time of settlement. The settlement happens instantly and at a fixed price for the full sum. The settlement is actually a large sell of BitUSD that would affect the market price if done in the normal way, but due to it being instant and fixed-price it does not influence the market as it should.

the longs and shorts are two sides of the market.
we should keep them in balance, so the market can run very long time.

Now in BitAsset, the BTA shorters have an expiring date, but the BTA holders have not. This means holding BTA have advantage than holding BTS(or the bts collateral). So the BTA holders are winner, and BTS price is falling all the way.

In BitAsset 3.0, there is no solid time limit for BTA shorter too. But BTA holders have another advantage: can settle back BTS whenever they want. This leads to the same result as now.
And the settlement makes BTA not currencies any more. If we want to create BTA as currencies, then we just need to let BTA can buy BTS whenever they want.
What you called settlement seems not basic function of currencies, but some kind of bond. Correc me if I make mistakes.

EDIT PLUS:
For a healthy market:
if market mainly want to sell, sellers need place lower price orders to match buyers'.This leads the price to go down.
if market mainly want to buy, buyers need place higher price orders to match sellers'. This leads the price to go up.
In BitAsset 3.0, the settlement function make the market do not work normally. Hold BitAsset to get BTS, will not leads BTS price go up, but Hold BTS to get BitAsset leads BTS price to go down.

I suggest we need more consideration.  Maybe just cancel the short orders time limit and make shorts can cover whenever they want and at what amount they want, and market will do the rest.  (except bad collateralized shorts)

I think I have to add some.


In effect a short position is a "loan" that is callable based upon price or X day notice.


BTA short position is different from loan.

If you loan from someone, he gives you the right to use his resource. You benefit from the loan, and need to pay interest.
But BTA long side sell bts is a market behavior. They get money from this, and can withdraw to their bank account, can buy something. So the long do not have the right to call back.

The market have the right to call back from short. Only when the collateral is not enough.
