Afaik, only the original creator of the proposal can delete his own proposal (everything else would not be good)

I very much welcome you engagement as well your offer to be trusted proxy!
We need more people going forward and wanting to take an active role in the community!
So ... +5%!

tbh, the easiest and cheapest would be to sell them at any of the existing exchanges into BTC, then go from there ..

OTC trades with a new account are discouraged.

I guess its because the main comittee/proxy members are all technical skilled and not in marketing
This is simply .. true!
There are a bunch of nerds and a few businessmen/women and no good marketing people.
I can remember that BitShares has had 2 marketing people and paid them *VERY WELL* (much better than what we pay developers these days) .. but ultimately, it was a waste of time and resources.
There was ZERO outcome.
If you know of someone that can do marketing truely well, please go ahead and engage, propose, delegate and manage!

I am approving JohnR's proposal to become committee member:;topicseen#new

We need to catch up compatition there and I feel that someone with background in economics is the right thing for us nerds to find a way to grow BitShares into an *actual* business.

much appreciated, but to destroy your illusion: committee is mostly a janitor job. there's no prestige or any other bonus you'll get from it.

I would rather see you becoming a proxy, trying to get influence. influence is where you can make an impact, not the committee, my opinion of course.
There's not much prestige to get as a committee member and it is mostly work and no pay (at all)
Still, I do believe some more business mind is needed in the committee and once the number chrunching thru kibana is done and we get some statistics, we can
surely need someone with experience in economics. I am willing to approve this proposal to also get some freshness into the committee.

Those charts look awesome!

Dear BitShares community,

it is about time to clear up the uncertainty about my involvement with
the BitShares Blockchain Foundation (BBF). To many it appears as if I
spoke for the foundation. For reasons that are beyond my understanding,
people still believe that even after I told them differently.

Hence, I would like to clarify once and for all that

I (@xeroc) do *not* speak for the BitShares Blockchain Foundation, nor
do I speak for *any* company other than ChainSquad GmbH.

For the BBF, I serve the following functions:

* technical lead (through Blockchain Projects B.V.)
* point of contact (one out of many) to forward requests to the BBF

That said, I would also like to make clear that the @xeroc proxy account
on the BitShares Blockchain is undoubtedly independent from any
company or foundation involvement. I make this point very clear
to every party I deal with - even beyond BBF and Blockchain Projects
B.V. I intend to be as open and honest to every single community member
as possible as long as the content of this post is clearly understood.

Furthermore, as most in here know, I am also a director of the PeerPlays
Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA) which I try hard to keep
entirely separate unless BitShares is involved. In that case, my goal is
for the greater joint benefit of both Blockchains.

Additionally, through ChainSquad GmbH, I am also the owner and operator
of BitShares Europe and the services associated with it.  Certainly,
BitShares Europe's goal was (and will be) to grow the BitShares
Blockchain to its full potential. As you may know, from time to time the
@bitshareseurope account has significant voting power on the Blockchain
which is (so far) refused to use actively. Once I come up with a proper
solution for potential conflicting interests on this front, I will let
everyone know.

To those that can read between the lines, it becomes apparent that there
is huge potential for conflicts of interest. So far, all my business
partners have been informed about those potentials and would like to
know also inform the entire BitShares community about them. So far,
those potentials have not yet materialized into actual conflicts,
but they may in the future. At that point, I will stick to openness and
honesty and inform the community about them.

That said, I am looking forward to continue the work with my current
business partners including Blockchain Projects B.V. and the PBSA who
have been very understanding about this from the very beginning and
leave me the freedom it needs.

To add to the above, I fully support the BBF and the efforts they currently
undertake to establish proper legal foundation around the BitShares Blockchain
and the BTS core native token. Furthermore, I would like to clarify that despite
me not being part of the BBF legally, my input and feedback to them is highly
appreciated. To add to this, the BBF's intention is to stay as neutral as possible
which is why it is kept at a minimum size, minumum influence and does not
do partnerships or public endorse any project. We are talking about a fine line
between establishing trust and being used for the sake of good reputation (we
have all witnessed how that works)

General Discussion / Re: BitShares Discord Tip Bot

1 - I started work on a Discord tip bot days ago and should've mentioned that when I outlined the issues I was having -

2 - I ran into some roadblocks with the pybitshares module.
* I filed a ticket ( ) and have received no response.
* There has been no response to my questions here -
* There has been no response to my questions here, either -
* I messaged "xeroc" (Fabian Schuh) directly on Telegram with my issues he did not reply to me.

Sorry for the latency, I was on vacation and am still trying to catch up on what I missed those 3 weeks ..

Good job. Looks good. Now needs to grow user base and reputation. Good luck for the future!
