Hey fellas,

Looking for help here.

When I restore my wallet with brain key and password, my account resolves, but it is listed as "Not your account (Propose)" on the transfer from screen?

Additionally, on my account screen, I have an "unfollow" box directly beneath my name.

Any ideas?


Excuse my possible ignorance here.

I'm logged into Openledger and looking around the GUI and noticed that when I click on any user, it appears that I can see their account balance for every asset they hold.

Is this normal? Is it how BTS 2.0 is supposed to be working - or is it Openledger - or a bug???

Just being able to see the held and claimed balances of other accounts here gave me the heebie jeebies - I hope this is some kind of bug.

General Discussion / Proxy incentives
« on: September 27, 2015, 08:33:06 pm »
It seems to me that when 2.0 goes live, the incentive will quickly be realized for proxies to pay for voting power.
This is where the inevitable politics of BTS 2.0 will become increasingly transparent, IMO.

What might be the possibilities of political deals regarding vote-swaps and quid pro quo among witness approvals, platform proposals, etc.
I suppose high value platform proposals will be the most obvious and likely sources to be first to attempt this type of method to manipulate approvals.

Obviously, community oversight will be necessary to deal with bad actors, but how quickly will the community be able to rally/communicate for prompt action?

Is this worry valid?

If so, I think this is an area we should put effort into considering, whether it is worth concern, the possible likelihood, and if so – what should be done to counter it.

I think Bitshares is making a wise move in eventually including vote decay as a tool to weight active vs. non-active voters, gradually faze out votes from lost keys, etc.

However, I think the same type of gradual delay is required on the incoming side as well, in order to limit the possibility of rogue proxies or coordinated voting attacks.

I would propose consideration of vote vesting as one type of safety mechanism – to allow for community voter mobilization in the case that an extremely large vote is placed.

Maybe we could start with something like a 24 hour 0% vest period (but with network notification of incoming vote), followed by initiation and gradual vesting to complete within the next 24 or 48 hour period?

General Discussion / Memberships and sub.accounts in Bitshares 2.0
« on: September 11, 2015, 04:01:17 pm »
Are sub.accounts going to be possible in 2.0?

If so:

1a. Will the premium account of "maloney" offer a premium umbrella for its sub.accounts, or will each sub.account need to purchase a premium account (ie- bob.maloney, cousin-eddie.maloney, bills.maloney, savings.maloney)

2. What if I own a business? (ie- down to the lowly employees...

3. Would it be possible to develop a method to determine between personal/family and business accounts? (Maybe the total # of sub.accounts available?)

A little outside the box and into the more distant future:

Could it ever be possible for an account owner to grant permissions for sub.accounts to be generated where the original account owner would not have access to the sub.accounts private key? (some kind of non-hierarchical structure would be required, I assume)
Maybe with the ability of the original account holder to remove the sub.account if abusive, but have the assets of that sub.account sent to another predetermined account (preset by the sub.accounts creator) upon close by original account owner.

IDentabit / - Identabit competition?

It's looking like a more Ripple/Stellar-like competitor to Identabit from what I can understand.

Has anybody heard anything else about this project?

Technical Support / Who is Cryptonomex?
« on: June 16, 2015, 07:07:01 pm »
Since we are most likely going to be voting on awarding the majority of large worker contracts for the foreseeable future to Cryptonomex, I think it is the responsibility of the Bitshares community to require at least a responsible level of transparency regarding the makeup and ownership of what will be our largest contractor.

If there are a few big CNX investors that wish to remain anonymous for the time being - fine - but please allow the community to know that is at their request and weight the information ourselves.
They may wish to keep their anonymity and maybe the large percentage of this community will be OK with that, but in the spirit of what was Bitshares, I request a little more openness from here on out.

Now is the time for the community to set precedent on what requirements will be necessary from contractors, going forward.
I would like to see some answers to this before any of these proposals come to a vote.

My previous post that was unfortunately made at the end of the locked NuMine thread:,16902.msg216862.html#msg216862

I don't see it that way.

I think most people here with legitimate concerns (by now I think most of us know who to read, who to consider and who to skip) are over Cryptonomex as a company.

We don't know the ownership percentages - what little we do know is from the mumble - that bytemaster doesn't own 51%.

But how much do the angels own? Who are they?  What are their goals? Interests? Alignment?  This matters.

bytemaster's claim that they plan to diversify holdings is somewhat bothersome as well and a lot of that part of the mumble came off as kind of like - (not a quote) 'well, things are different now - we are Cryptonomex, you're not - so it's none of your business'

Yes, that is bothersome - and this is coming from someone who has been here since the beginning and trusted in the devs through every minor crisis to date.

If the diversification is short term, to pay for rather immediate expenses - OK, but if Cryptonomex is truly all-in on BTS - their holdings should reflect that.

Also - who is Cryptonomex?

What makes the team? I've been looking for a team page and have yet to find it.

Is Toast part of Cryptonomex? Vikram? Agent86? theoretical? who? - is there a link I'm not seeing?

Again, I think most concerned here have a tremendous amount of trust and faith in the Larimer's and the rest of the dev team, but we have yet to be convinced that Cryptonomex is not something that can run away from them.

I really hope to get some reassuring answers soon. We have our first Bay Area meetup on Thursday and I'm sure most of us have had enough of a hard time trying to get up to speed with the technical and operational 2.0 changes - I really would like this issue to be worked out before being blindsided by a newb with interest and not having an answer.

Lastly, thanks again to everybody in this community - from the devs to the lurkers who show up for 1 or 2 important posts. The last 18 months have been the most optimistic I have ever been that the next 100 years will be one of enlightenment and abundance.

Thank you

Maybe somebody can help them out with a better response and resources than I did?

Mods: This may have been discussed and flushed out in the past, if so, please link to relevant thread and lock this thread.


Setting 100% pay rate for the highest approval delegate and paying down a percentage relative to the highest delegate to 3% pay for 101st delegate. (or some differing calculation if the community believes all 101 deserve >3%)

Advantages I can see:

1. Allows community to set varying pay rate per delegate, rather than requiring a re-approval to change.
2. Allows constant feedback on perceived value/performance of delegate.

General Discussion / BITshares currently bidding @ $50/ea

I have a feeling the terminology is about to get very muddy:

*Edit: 1 BIT share = 0.1 BTC

Congratulations to Sergio on his new role for the Bitcoin Foundation.

Does anyone know if this will this negatively affect his time and availability for consulting and auditing Bitshares?

General Discussion / All delegates or potential delegates
« on: November 18, 2014, 06:14:02 pm »
Until we have a more developed and organized method for finding delegate information, I think it would be good practice to list your delegate name, short summary, pay rate and link to additional information within your forum signature.

Maybe we can also create a delegate subforum, with a sticky at the top, listing delegates and potential delegates in alphabetical order with the same (maybe one line) summary, pay rate and link to a personal thread for that delegate within the delegate subforum.

Delegate: dev0.nikolai
Summary: Developing all the things
Pay rate: 100%  <---park this thread in the delegate subforum.

*Edit: I just noticed: - which seems far too general - Can we make a second subforum that is structured somewhat similarly to the one I described above.

"The time has come for starving artists to finally make real money from their music. As the Internet disrupted the way record labels make their money, the blockchain is taking this another step by threatening to render them useless. PeerTracks is matching the artist up with the audience and allowing them to both make money, all the while spreading knowledge of the blockchain to the mainstream."

General Discussion / Bitshares Books
« on: April 24, 2014, 07:49:05 am »
I am trying to understand how this DAC will function.

I believe BSM would be the most similar of the currently projected DACs, but I was wondering if anyone else could help expand on this to allow me to get a better grasp and explain the creation and functions more clearly to interested parties.

I can see the similarities to BSM as far as issuing shares and value based on quality/demand, but how could differences between free ebooks and for-profit physical books be easily handled?

I'm guessing the ebooks (if in demand) would help increase the value of shares, while physical book sales profits can provide dividends?

Would consumers be accepting of ads placed in free ebooks?
If done tastefully and selectively, I'm guessing this would also be a profitable form of revenue that could also pay dividends?
