bytemaster said 0.4.10 "switches to price feeds rather than moving average" here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=8011.msg105611#msg105611
Does anyone know exactly how the price feeds will be used, and what they'll be used for?
There was some discussion that the median price feed might be used as the margin call price, and/or as a basis for floor / ceiling on trading. Is the feed used for one of these purposes?
If the median is going to be used in one of these roles, or otherwise seriously affect my trading activity, the UI needs to show it. By "accessible" I mean some way to filter red (outdated) feeds, sort the remaining price feeds, and put some kind of bar where the median is.
If price feeds need constant and accurate updates to make the market work, we need to make sure delegates are educated about their new responsibilities to maintain a current price feed, and give them a little time to set up scripts or other procedures to make that happen.
If price feeds have a major role in 0.4.10, information about the change needs to be a lot more accessible than a single post buried many replies deep that simply says "we've switched to price feeds."
