What is everyone up to?
« on: June 14, 2015, 07:35:02 PM »

So there are some great people in this community. I read as much of the forum as possible, the news letters, recommended links and a bunch more but I still don't have a clue what everyone is up to!  I was thinking maybe there are others who feel the same. Assuming we can all get passed the CMX nuke  :P, we'll need get really mobilised if we're going to build the network up so we can afford the core devs and get the juggernaut rolling.

So please post a short summary in this thread, if you wouldn't mind, about what you're up to. Or recommend someone who's efforts have made a difference to you. The idea is for us all to have a reasonable idea of who our foundational, active members of the Bitshares network are and what they are up to.

This is also a call to all lurkers too. Are you working behind the scenes? Or perhaps you are on the cusp of introducing yourself....well go for it!  We sometimes bark and our bite is always worse, but we'll work it out in the end  :D

I'll go first.... Ben Mason, working towards integrating BTS into my Vape shop, perhaps launching a UIA.

I'm designing a range of asset class structures and associated tokens that could be implemented in bitShares, and serve as (better) substitutes to traditional structures like stable currency, term deposits, bonds, ETF's, futures and options, CFDs, credit markets, etc. This will require greater flexibility than privatised bitAssets currently allow, so there will initially be some lobbying to do on this front. Later I would like to get others involved as co-funders, developers and promoters to help bring these to fruition and share reward from them.

I have been building DPOShub.org along with @DataSecurityNode. It's an interactive web-based platform for our community to share PR content, build business relationships and post classified listings (just a few of the many features). Check out our update in the May NullStreet Journal, and our whitepaper: http://www.dposhub.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/dposhubdelegateproposal.pdf

We should have a working beta soon and we will be sharing more information in a public announcement in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

Also, please don't forget to vote for our delegate: delegate.dposhub-org

DPOSHub - As CryptoP already mentioned, been working on this. Coming along nicely and is going to awesome for this community. Vote delegate.dposhub-org

BunkerMining - Still trying to get our delegates voted so we can get proper funding to get all our improvements done (http://vote.bunkermining.com). I had a programmer working on improvements but just the other day came to realize he was not going to work out. Now seeking someone else who can get the work done for a fraction of what most would ask to get it done for. Market cap payout for the delegates is killing the project. FUD from some hasn't helped. I still spend nearly 2 hours everyday processing payments.

BunkerShares - I was getting the SAFE system developed when we got hit with the 2.0 change. The cutoff of the refer for the next few months threw off plans and it took a while to figure out how to best proceed. Now that we got it straight we are going back to dev, but holding off on SAFE until 2.0. Getting closer to a launch date. :) Oh and if you don't know what it is, it's a presale offering powered by BitShares UIA. (see my sig for link).

Tuesday I am doing a presentation on How to create a Bitshares account that is going to be videoed. I am still preparing for it.

I started the day highly motivated to begin a new book series, and spent a good number of hours researching bytemaster's posts on the bitcointalk forum, going back to his first one on July 27th, 2010 and the most recent one being on May 21st of this year. This was research I started to support the series that I'm tentatively calling The BitShares Saga. I have 5 books in the making, starting with part 1: The Genesis of a Revolution. The 30 pages I've written that was to become The Coming BitShares Revolution will not go to waste but will be revised and become part 3: Experiments for a Revolution. That was the plan I started to formulate and put into action today.

I launched the website to promote what was going to be the book, which I am in the process of changing to fit my new plan. The link to the website is on the left under my name.

I'm going to develop a decentralized marketplace and use bitshares as a payment option via shopping cart plugin to woocommerce. It will be an onchain marketplace.

Wrapping my head around a post training-wheels BitShares and tweaking my two bots (inner market maker and outer Metaexchange).

Trying not to get fired from my other job (the one that pays my bills ;) ) because my heart and soul is here. I am extremely busy at "work" but I just can't get myself to give a shit. When I mentioned I wanted out of the rat race what I meant was having the financial independence to work on things that matter. My current gig doesn't matter to anyone except maybe a few execs looking to increase their bonuses. I want more out of life.
