BitShares X website design discusssion
« on: June 03, 2014, 04:33:36 PM »

The basic design of bitshares.org is meant to function like a directory (thus the .org - it's an organiation of BitShares powered businesses). It will point to the specific DACs, which in turn will have a distinct site. 

I suggested to bytemaster that we start getting the BitShares X site ready now so we have a nice package to put the finished product in when it's complete.  The dev team is working hard in VA and making great progress on the backend, now we need help on the front end - the storefront, so to speak. 

There are a lot of features that will need to be present in order for it to work as a bank & exchange.  I'd like to hear what your thoughts are for how such a site should be designed, what kind of elements it will need, can we find any great examples out there, like toast recently sent me from bloomberg's site, etc.   Please post links to sites you like and/or elements we'll need to build.

Sorry, but I don't understand this at all. Are you referring to the GUI of the decentralized desktop app?


There are a lot of features that will need to be present in order for it to work as a bank & exchange. 


What do you mean by this? This sounds like Bitshares Bank and Exchange is going to be a centralized website business. Are you referring to a website that is a dashboard of feeds that pull information off of the blockchain to display? Shouldn't this information be available in the desktop application already?

Right, this should be an info-only website, we are explicitly *not* supposed to have any actual functionality on the page.

Product 1: Download a wallet which lets us interface with the product.
Product 2: Navigate to site which lets us interface with the product.
Product 3: Navigate to site which gives all kinds of information about the product.

I vote I3 does all of them. At any rate, clarify plans.

Define "interface"... I3 cannot host a web wallet, if that's what you mean.

BTX is one brand new business concept and model.

So ,I suggest the website can give users plenty of examples to introduce how the BTX business system work.

If it is informational only, then it should be included in Bitshares.org. In my opinion, there is no need for another website, especially considering the issues and track record of the primary site.

Could it be a page or a group of pages that are part of the main site? And maybe the Bitshares X domain name, whatever that is, when people type it in or follow a link to it, could redirect to that part of the main site?

I have no idea. What about a browser interface that can (privately) talk to the wallet on our computer? I am just thinking from a user perspective, it would be helpful to access everything through the browser.

Sure, I3 just can't do that, someone else will have to make it.
The GUI wallet is basically a web interface though.

you could even redirect for example bitsharesx.com to bitshares.org/etc...

After discussing with bytemaster, this project will have to be something that isn't completed by a member of the core team.  Instead, specific DAC sites will be created by those using our technology to launch BitShares based businesses.  This allows us to simply be a team that creates software that powers these businesses, and gives us a "firewall" for legal reasons. Also, it fits the idea that we want to be decentralized.  Simply stated, we create the tools used to build DACs, we don't build DACs ourselves.  B
