[DNS] Launch Checklist
« on: August 21, 2014, 10:03:49 PM »

I have opted to go for a relatively "quiet" launch - I will not enable domain sales (and so will not have to wait for extreme thorough testing for DNS functionality) and will not wait for a polished GUI. This is because the large delegate subsidy will greatly accelerate the pace of development (especially infrastructure) and allow us to build the hype necessary for the auction kickback mechanic to properly incentivize honest market participation once development is underway.


I will keep this thread up to date with what needs to be done before launch. If you want to help with any of these, you will be reimbursed from the development fund.

Launch Checklist

*  Basic UI rebranding  -  functional UI development is already being taken care of, but not how it looks. This really means a temporary logo / splash pic
*  KeyID namespace snapshot. Gamey has been managing Keyhotee migration and name substitution requests. We will take a "delegate name snapshot" from the end of august 21st and post the genesis block names publicly for review / sub requests.
*  PTS/AGS snapshot + audit.  The tool on bitshares.org breaks for dates later than the end of AGS, and I want an audit of this tool and any existing PTS snapshot tool anyway. Boombastic had prepared a namecoin snapshot tool is no longer necessary but can be used for PTS snapshots:
*  Thorough writeup of auction mechanics and all other parameters
*  Dry Run
*  Code review with the rest of the team


I will launch a test network for developers Soon and a dry run with GUI after any BTSX fires are put out. Repo is at github.com/das-lab/DNS, but don't bother until I set up a dedicated testnet.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

If you mean this tool: http://bitshares.org/resources/genesis-blocks/

I've been running the alternate implementation at http://ptsags.quisquis.de/ since its creation in february, and I've been comparing my PTS/AGS snapshots with those from the above site every day. Both sites have (with a few exceptions that were quickly resolved) provided consistent results during these past 6 months. The only difference is the slightly different handling of rounding issues, resulting in AGS balances differing by a few satoshis.

I have adapted my genesis block generator after the end of AGS to always use the final AGS balance. I think the other tool could be easily fixed to do the same.

Is it possible to have bounties get paid in BitUSD? The problem is what about dumping?

Thank you! I generated a partial genesis block using this tool.
Question:  If I put 5bn as the total supply and 40%/40%, what happens with the remaining 20%? Is there a balance where the rest is allocated, or does the total in the genesis block simply equal 4bn?  Thanks.

I will pay bounties in BitUSD only if I can find people willing to buy BDNS at above market rates. Otherwise there is no point, since I'd have to sell the BDNS myself in order to pay the BitUSD which is at least as bad as the recipient dumping them.

The total will equal 4bn. (The actual total is also contained in the json generated by the tool, right at the end.)

Hey toast, I've been reluctant to say this as I've been pretty busy between my salary job and and freelance, but if you still need someone to help out with the UI/Logo let me know. That's what I do for a living. www.dmipartners.com. I'm 2nd to last on the list of all of the department heads ("our people" under about us).

I'm re-doing my website, but I'd be more than happy to send you my portfolio & live samples of UI's I've designed (the website for my company being one of them).
