Is there a way to create a private github, so that interested people could help with editing / proof reading?

Hi Fav if the private github effectivly exclude all parsers from search engines so the content won't get indexed
yes that would be possible and even much appreciated.

Arround $3700 on average for each.
All articles won't be displayed at the exect same time but in a timeframe from 30-45 days with the intend to push back bitshares into peoples and businesses view and hopefully increase the price of BTS which would benefit the whole bitshares ecosystem.


Here are my personal questions:

a) Do you already have article / content writers at hand?
Yes these are editors from the presented major news websites

b) Is there a review process involved, and if so by whom?
Currently not but i would be happy to let it review by any committee member who would be willing to do the review
c) Can editors invoice for their work?

Not directly,the invoice will be from a company which has longterm contracts with editors for most news websites.
Making a direct deal with an editor would be more expensiv.

d) I assume all invoices will be publicly available?

Invoice for seperate editors work will be shown to committee to not publish their custome rates in public

e) How many articles will your worker produce?
5 fully featured articles


BBF as escrow?

I didn't choosed an escrow to make it as cheap as possible but mainly because imo it adds here no additional security when needing to fully prepay in advance the editors before the articles get published.
Should the community however feel the need of an escrow for this worker i would have no problem with that either.

Got 48h to see communities decission on that before the worker goes active. 

Article and Brand Marketing on Major News Websites

Worker 1.14.190

As announced earlier on telegram
I am proposing a worker for fully featured premium articles published on major news websites by their own editors.

Major news websites which are included :

Forbes         Alexa Rank  299
Yahoo News     Alexa Rank  9
Investing      Alexa Rank  488           
Wired          Alexa Rank 1496
Reuters        Alexa Rank  627

Additionally this worker will also contain a service to push the Forbes or Reuters article on Reddit’s front page. Hitting Reddit’s front page normally means an additional
100k-200k viewers for the promoted article. Since the majority of Reddit’s traffic is from North America and is a crypto friendly site it should have a nice impact for BitShares.
This service has a guarantee which means that should our article, for any reason, not hit Reddit’s front page we will get a full refund for that service ($600).

All articles will be fully featured which means the article will be mainly about BitShares with it’s own title and an image suited to blockchain.

Publishing time will be around 30-45 days after the editors receive initial payment.
All articles will be written by their own professional editors.

A big additional value BitShares will receive from these publications is that we will be allowed to add up to two links in each article for our website.
Backlinks from major news websites like Reuters or Forbes are highly priced where websites owners who are trying to improve their SEO rankings need to pay on average $1200-2500
for a single link from these kind of major news websites.
These links have a very high SEO value because these major news websites are for Google “high authority” websites. Google automatically assumes that websites linked from these
major news outlets need to be important too else they wouldn't receive a backlink. So these major news websites will pass big authority to our domain which
will mean that ALL keywords on which is being ranked will rise significantly in their rankings and each new keyword will be way easier to rank thanks to the new received authority.
Here is the exact SEO authority details about the domain, the major news websites and Binance as a reference.

And as reference Binance

These premium articles will be also open doors to other major news websites like CNN, CNBC, USAToday, Bloomberg, etc. which editors currently refuse to write about
BitShares unfortunately because it currently lacks history on other major news websites.

Payment terms for editors: 50% Upfront and the remaining 50% when reviewing their articles before they get published.

The total cost will be 18500 USD or 130k CNY (7,02cny/usd)

As reference publishing, a fully featured article directly through forbes agency or Reuters agency costs $50.000 and $10.500.

General Discussion / Re: Price Feed Review
« on: May 22, 2019, 04:12:23 pm »
in my view, generally speaking, below are some principles to judge whether a witness feed price well enough.

1. feed price should reflect the price at which the conversion can be done between BTS and the pegged fiat.

2. feed price should be updated frequently enough to reflect the real market price.

3. for smartcoin with enough market depth in trading pair with BTS in DEX, such as bitCNY, feed price should not conflict with the modified DEX price, which means the DEX price plus the smartcoin premium/discount.

So we would get margin calls on DEX (with 1.01) which would be more expensiv than BTS at regular price on CEX ?

You have outdated MCR's and MSSR's.

IMHO it's more reasonable to compare votes of all the related workers:

* 1.14.168 Poll - BSIP59 - Reduce MSSR of bitCNY to 1.02,                      834,717,273 votes
* 1.14.144 Poll-BSIP41-Reduce MSSR of bitCNY from 1.1 to 1.05,            799,257,175 votes
* 1.14.181 Poll - BSIP59 - Reduce MSSR of bitCNY to 1.01,                      483,677,666 votes
* 1.14.169 Poll - BSIP59 - Do Not Reduce MSSR of bitCNY                       243,231,913 votes

Apparently 1.14.168 has the highest support. So my conclusion is we should set the parameter to 1.02.
Even 1.05 has much more support than 1.01

Agree on that

Its on global settlement which means its undercollaterized and thats why it doesn't represent currently the full value of a BTC.

Voted back bitcrab as committee and gdex as witness since ZB votes are no more giving an advantage.

Keep Blckchnd unvoted till he updates at least MCR of bitcny and MSSR of bitusd.

Paramaters are not important on biteur.I would love to go in debt in biteur as its the currently most overrated currency and one of the 3 world currencies which will stay,
but there are no BTS sold at market price which you could buy for biteur.
Since there are no BTS sold at market price people are settling BitEUR to get BTS at feed price which makes that debt gets liquidiated and the median CR pushed up heavily.
To get liquidity there you would first need to make sure people can buy BTS at market price.

Perhaps we should turn the witch hunt around and publish screenshots of short positions with low collateral ratio.

These guys are the cancer of BTS and must be punished! Vote for 150% MSSR please!


This would be considered a direct attack to a high ranked member who wants to increase feedprice ,lower MSSR to 1 so no margin call will get eaten anymore.
You are against long debt holders.You are an enemy.Making sure margin calls won't get eaten anymore gives debt holders security and will increase debt aka liquidity /irony off.

Btw the chinese forum has a nice thread why people with low price feed gets bashed.
First lower MCR than increase price feed and at the end lower MSSR to 1.01 with final goal 1.00 .
There is also explained why.


I see big activity from you guys to improve bitshares.How does it come you guys are so quite about the abused USD OMO Fund ?

Is it possible to make a live stream out of china for facebook or youtube ?

Checking the result of reducing the MCR now it seems there was no bigger impact at all.
Price of BTS increased by arround 5% new debt increased by 3%.

I revoked my vote to not reduce MCR to 1.6 to protect investors debt who have decreased it near 1.6 since it was close to get voted in but still uphold the claim that the timing of reducing MCR was bad.
