The problem is the low market cap. If delegate pay (dilution) was increased then it would/could only serve to crash the price lower in a vicious cycle.
With the worker proposals the market cap may be less of an issue as nearly all dilution is shared among as many workers as bts members desire (vote for).
An important but expensive worker proposal will be able to be voted to the top and take the lions share of the reserve-pool (dilution) funds.
Which should mean that bts can pay a higher fee to workers.
A pre-DPOS 2 solution might be to reduce the number of delegates such that the pay can for individual elected delegates can be higher. Half # of delegates = twice the pay for each.
But members don't seem to want that - else there wouldn't be so many 100% elected delegates.
In 6+ months I don't think it will be such an issue
This hasn't been discussed I don't think, but it's more than likely that worker proposals will be introduced in bitAssets of their local currency choice.. ie. bitUSD for Americans or bitEUR for someone from Germany.
As for the too many 100%ers.. I am right in this boat first hand with a project where the delegate pay is not enough to carry the project forward. I have thousands of dollars being lost in this project monthly that does nothing for me at all.. it's all for BitShares.. so community support to turn it into something that can actually double our current volume is essential.
Our project is unique though in that, a great portion of what we receive goes straight into bitUSD payouts that in turn increase volume of bts with collateral, increase user transactions and volume and users etc. Just the liquidity created by the miners alone would make the bitUSD and other Asset markets really rumble.
On top of that, all our activity is taking all altcoins and bitcoins and funneling them into BitUSD.. so also increasing the rate of return on our delegates.
So with the delegate pay we are getting a lot of it is just feeding back into BitShares.
I agree though that in six months this will all change.
If you like to see our delegate proposal.. you can see it here http://vote.bunkermining.com
Probably not the best place to advertise our bid.. a thread about less 100%ers
.. but now you got another example of where the delegate system as it is just doesn't provide enough for many of these projects to move forward at any super pace.
Our bid was for 6 delegates out of necessity due to the market cap.. and our plan is to get off the delegate pay as fast as possible. I have always been a strong believer that every delegate plan should come with an exit strategy, and I am glad with the new worker setup that will have to be built into contracts clearly.
