Are delegates feeding random numbers for the USD/BTSX price?
« on: August 29, 2014, 02:55:03 PM »

Why is the average delegate USD/BTSX equal to 0.0556??? According to http://bitsharesblocks.com/#/assets/asset?id=22.

What is the feed number used for? Does it affect margin calls, or is that just the market price? If margin calls depend on price feeds, no wonder the peg is so far off - delegates are saying that a BTSX is still worth 5 cents, so we haven't had the flood of margin calls that should have blown out the shorts of all these people trading against the peg.

If the feed doesn't really affect anything, then ignore me. Otherwise, delegates are not doing their job. Only a very few delegates are feeding an accurate price.

 wallet_publish_price_feed angel-delegate 0.022 USD

This was the last feed I published.

Some of the feeds listed on the page are expired.
Others belong to delegates not in top101.
Nothing to worry about.

I was told that the moving average already took over for bitUSD and we didn't need to publish feeds for it. Is that correct or no?

Although there are numbers listed there that look odd.
Perhaps delegates that were feeding $1 per BTSX or $0.0 per BTSX can enlighten us how did they acquire these numbers.

That was correct at one time, but there may be changes coming.  Read this thread:  https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=7965.0

I use a script to populate the values.  They are pulled every few seconds and update when they get more than 5% off. It was written by Alt and is in git hub.

I have an idea:

The system could ignore from calculations  for example 10 prize feeds (from the 51 needed)...
The top 5 with the top values and the last 5 with the bottom values... so extreme values like on your example wouldn't be a part of the equation  ;)

EXAMPLE:

0
0.001
0.012
0.020
0.024

----------------------------------------
0.0242
0.0243
0.0244444
0.025
etc
...

..

---------------------------------------
0.027
0.030
0.5
0.8
1



IGNORE THE RED  PRIZE FEEDS
INCLUDE GREEN PRIZE FEED

Changed the script to only pull updates every 12 hours. It was running every minute and in this volatile market my delegate was going broke lol.
