PolitiShares?
« on: November 18, 2013, 11:20:51 AM »

Could this model be used to bring TRUE crowd-sourced ratings on politicians based on voting records? 

We all know of the quote "Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics"...because up until now Statistics were almost always altered by some Central Authority.  With the introduction of DAC's (god you guys are awesome for this invention btw), ratings could truly be crowd-sourced...and statistical models built upon data truly gathered through the "wisdom of the masses".

Great concept.  We won't know until some inspired entrepreneur (like yourself?) releases such a DAC into the wild...   :)

BitShares is a prediction market, and can operate like existing prediction markets.    We have designs for a secure, authenticated, yet anonymous, continuous voting system that could end media manipulation of opinion polls as well as the less-of-two-evils voting because you can change your vote (anonymously) at any time up until the end of the election.

I feel like the biggest problem in that kind of a DAC would be getting widespread adoption. Sure, a lot of tech-savy people would be able to understand and use it fairly easily, but many people could find themselves confused by the system if it isn't presented in a very simple format. Best of luck to anyone who tries this!

Once everyone is using Keyhotee ID, it will be a one or two click process to vote and change your vote on any issue :)

You wily bastards...people really have no clue "yet" how this changes everything.  One good DAC and follow-through on a promise...and this is skyrocketing in value--especially the kind that really matters--the value to the entirety of humanity.

History in the making...

Well, "votes" can also be used in polling...right?  PolitiShares could provide statistical modeling for a fee...and the types of models sold are ones the community believes in.  Just a thought.  Let's kick up some dust on this for a bit. 

Of course...it could also be sold to non-profits for a significantly lower fee.  Many options here, but stirring the dust might help us identify more of them.
