Step 1: solve a problem or come to a consensus:
The fastest way for our community to reach a consensus on the issue of how to design our Bitshares "faucet," is for everyone posting here to provide their own personal wish list for the exact detailed set of "faucet" rules that they think would guarantee maximum adoption of Bitshares EVERY TIME THEY POST.
List your personal favorite proposal at the end of your post so that we can see who is thinking what. It will greatly improve our communication as a group, and assist us on reaching our goal of gaining a unifying social consensus on a single concept.
That way everyone else can choose to either accept or reject individual ideas line by line. Bite sized progress. The entrepreneurs who are on the fence trying to decide weather or not they want to honor PTS/AGS holders will be able to see how quickly your personal rule set changes relative to that of the Bitshares community. We want to show entrepreneurs that we are learning, and adapting quickly. This will allow consensus to be reached in the shortest amount of time.
If a dev says that a line item in my proposal is impossible to execute, then it is my job to actually read his post and change my proposal to reflect the consensus. I will provide effort to better the group, and if everyone provides the same effort, then we will reach a consensus in record time. if bytemaster comes over here, and he is proposing 3% instead of my 4% proposal, then I will change mine to reflect his because we all know that his ideas hold more consensus pooling power. Again, if I see that my numbers can be slightly adjusted to match the social consensus, then I will change mine to become one with the group. Maybe we will see that we all are pretty much in consensus currently?
Let's show off our collaboration skills by treating this obstacle like an exercise that will make us a more useful community (a toolkit for inventors).
What I am proposing is simply this:
Sign your posts with your current faucet revision.
Here, I'll start. This way, you will know exactly where everyone stands and who needs convincing, and arguements will be avoided if you can see that most people are basically on the same page.
OK Boys, game's over, show your cards.
1. total budgeted amount for faucet = 5% of bitshares (200,000) or whatever donations we can pool. Half life every 2 weeks. Why 5% because I don't want to give away the farm, but I don't want to come off as cheap to the world. In the west, a 20% tip at dinnertime is considered "more than gracious." And since 5 is 1/20 of 100 then mentally in everyones mind around me, 1/20 seems "comfortable and generous." 4% sounds cheap, and 6% seems as big as 5%. But as a range, I would say no more than 10% and no less than 3% otherwise, just do donations.
2. the distribution below will total 5%
2.5% distributed to Bitcoin holders (they like being first and having the biggest market cap) in the hybrid (pre-announced / unannounced max/min capped) scheme I suggested earlier. I think that by the time that Bitcoin holders take the Bitshares to the exchange to dump them, then they will see everybody else buying them, and change their mind because they are the "crypto herd"
0.5% to Dogecoin (great marketing abilities alone and they may be slow but they are certainly not stupid) blanket airdrop. Mini-media field day. Watch all the youtube videos pop up on your screen. These guys market like madmen !
0.5% to Peercoin & Gridcoin blanket airdrop. We support good causes like proof of stake and technological advancement.
0.5% to charities, churches, & media writers who produce an article. They will be awarded an equal percentage of the total pool after the designated time period.
0.5% to etherium (to be applied equally those in their genesis block as soon as they form it) because we support the open source community. This virtuous "love thy neighbor" in a land of cut throat competition will garner us the best, most sweetest etherial love by the world, who will be checking us out just for the human interest alone. You can't buy this kind of press! ..... oh, wait, we can! You smell that? it's money! People are easy to tease.......And what's it cost us right now? A few hundred bucks? Please, never will you have a second chance to make a first impression, and never again will you be able to get as much BANG for your marketing buck. Who gives awesome viral publicity to their competitor launching their flagship product?
"Why the Bitshares community does. They are the definition of open source"
Print me a T-Shirt and bring me a mai-tai, we all are going to be filthy rich!
0.5% - divided among all Keyhotee id's equally after a date that is exactly one month after the launch of Keyhotee. That way, people will get "paid" a stake in Bitshares to sign up within the first month. Who's idea was that? It was a great one. See everybody, I changed my consensus to reflect that of the community.
Anybody who posts that any number of my proposals is impossible, then I will put in the effort for the benefit of the team and change my proposal before signing any posts from here on out.
So lets hear YOUR proposal.
If everyone knows exactly what everyone else is thinking, then we reach a consensus sooner. Then DA devs will flock here and honor your PTS/AGS.
Act like you want and deserve to get paid, and you just might.
DAtotal faucet budget - 5% (2 week half life)
BTC- 2.5 (pre/post announced)
DOGE - 0.5
PEER/GRID - 0.5
ETHER - 0.5
KEYHOTEE - 0.5
Stay on track in this thread and steps 2-10 will be revealed later
