« on: August 18, 2017, 06:34:30 am »
Looking around for documentation updates to help possibly work on solutions towards updates I found one that appears to have been updated just yesterday!

BTS Tools Documentation by Nicolas Wack
Release 0.4.14

The BTS Tools will help you build, run and monitor any graphene-based client (currently BitShares, Steem, Muse, PeerPlays).

If you like these tools, please vote for witness wackou on the Steem, BitShares and Muse networks. Thanks!


You may find more on my recent post on steemit.  Thank you to those that have assisted with updating the graphene documentation that will be of great help and value to many.

General Discussion / Updating of Bitshares Documentation
« on: August 04, 2017, 01:38:49 pm »
Noticing that the bitshares documentation could be using updated, would like to present the idea of getting feedback on how to best get this done.

Main questions are the following:

Who is available to update the bitshares documentation?
When can this be done?
How long might this take?
What is the estimated cost?
Who will lead the worker proposal?
How to vet the worker to lead the documentation effort?
Apptrade is seeking to learn more about Cryptonomex and Bitsapphire
What is your experience with them?
Why did you choose to work with them?
Do you know someone in that team to get in contact with?

General Discussion / Bitshares Trading Contest Pre-Announcement Idea
« on: July 14, 2017, 06:00:31 am »
Will be presenting an idea for a trading contest on bitshares that I and others seemed to have been thinking about for some time.  Different than HERO, would like to present an idea that is with less risk.  Will be sharing more details tomorrow morning on Beyond Bitcoin Hagnout #215.

Bitshares Trading Contest Pre-Announcement Idea

FTP / PTP - Free to Play or Pay to Play

Two choices are of being FTP, Free to play, or PTP, Pay to Play.  Would like feedback on which is preferred.  So please vote on the option below for initial feedback and I will also ask during the hangout.  In either case it will be pay to play once the contest starts as participants while have to trade for more tokens to win.  But there is the initial choice that Free to Play may be offered.

Initial entry price will be between FREE / 0 and about 1 STEEM, 1 SBD, or 10 bitshares (BTS).

Tracking Profits of Traders

Have decided to abandon the idea of tracking profits or progress in such a traditional manner as this seems to difficult to consider.  Then on top of this there can be deposits and withdrawals and trades in other trading pairs which make such tracking too difficult.

Size of Trading Accounts

Everyone has different sized trading accounts.  To control this variable my thought is to issue the same amount of tokens to each participant.  Then everyone has essentially one trading unit to try to trade up from.

Buy Back & Float

With one token this contest will be continuous.  In seeking a flexible solution the idea will be to allow participants to hold on to tokens as long as they want.  So the "Buy Back" will be optional at most times during trading contest with current thinking.  Thought is to offer different prices over the course of each contest window with a price that will rise and fall over time.

At the end of each period all the tokens in the contest may be exchanged for some rate that will be announced that may be about 80% of the overall prize pool with 20% being reserved for the winning top token holders during each trading period.

Prizes / Winners

Currently thinking to reward about the top 10% of participants with about 20% of the prize pool.  Liquid STEEM from this post will go towards funding the reward pool.  Time frame of contests will be one week.  Winners will have to send all of their trading contest tokens in to get their portion of the prize pool.  This will have winners starting the next cycle with zero tokens.  Then participants may choose to exchange their tokens any time with other participants or the trading contest account that will be offering various amounts through the contest always providing some exchange price on the open market for all tokens currently in the trading contest.

Token distribution

Token distribution for this Bitshares Trading Contest will occur during the Beyond Bitcoin Hangout and/or After Party.

Contest Announcement

The contest will be announced by another account to be announced during the hangout.  You will be able to sign up in the comments section with your bitshares name and payment instructions will be presented unless it is to be free to play.

Trading contest mechanics

Trading tokens will have a transaction fee so you will not want to trade them too much.  If you hold on to them they will be worth 80% of some potential value.  However if you trade for more you will increase your chances of winning more.  The contest will be to trade these tokens relative to price movements of crypto in respect to potential value of having enough tokens to win a portion of the trading contest reward pool reserved for about the top 10% of token holders.

Welcome all feedback with the alpha version of this trading contest idea.  Hope many find interest and value in this new idea of mine which combines numerous interests and passions of mine with crypto, games, investing, and trading while providing a way for others to learn and get rewarded.


General Discussion / Bitshares Issued Assets Market Updates & Giveaway
« on: April 07, 2017, 04:41:38 pm »
Have been offering a market update of a variety of bitshares assets in the steemit community, major cryptocurrencies, and tokens related to projects on Beyond Bitcoin Hangout that utilize bitshares as part of their projects.[member=43173]virtualgrowth[/member]/bts-asset-market-update-4-7-and-giveaway-for-4-15

Dozens of tokens given to dozens of people to get more involved with holding and trading these tokens on the bitshares DEX.

Blockchain business of digital items, bitshares & steem cryptocurrencies with @steemtg & MTGOTIX User Issued Asset exchangable for MTGO TIX and representing business of steemtg to increase in value over time.

MTGOTIX is available on the bitshares DEX as MTGOTIX/bitUSD:  ICO of MTGOTIX will be offered from February 10, 2017 to March 9, 2017 at 1 bitUSD each, 1 MTGOTIX at 1 Event TIX each, and 101 MTGOTIX for 100 MTGO Event Tickets (MTGO TIX).  Blocks of 1,000 MTGOTIX will be created and offered at a time as interest, and demand designate.

MTGO (Event) tickets may also be exchanged for this MTGOTIX bitshares asset at a rate of 101 TIX for MTGOTIX for a 1% bonus if anyone is interested.  Leave a comment with your MTGO name and good time(s) to contact you to make the trade.  You will need a bitshares name/account to get your MTGOTIX bitshares asset tokens.

As a combination of my areas of knowledge and passions I have created the bitshares assets MTGOTIX.  I have bought, sold, and traded thousands of Magic: the Gathering cards as a collector, player, trader, store owner, and trade show dealer.  Always wanted to create a digital business and decided this is a good time to do so.

MTGOTIX will be exchangeable for one Magic: the Gathering Online Ticket (EVENT TIX).  The MTGOTIX bitshares asset will appreciate in value as the steemtg MTGO account grows in value from trading Event TIX and MTGO cards, boosters, and other items.

MTGOTIX may be purchased for 1 bitUSD each just like MTGO TIX.

Will be offering 101 MTGOTIX bitshares assets for 100 MTGO (Event) TIX (tickets).

Business model will start as a simple business offering a small amount of cards for sale on with @steemtg,  This will grow and change depending on what methods are workable into the business.

Buy and sell lists will be posted on steemit and in the MTGO client.

Over time the business will aim to buy, sell, and trade MTGO cards that are more valuable and playable.  As these cards have higher / stronger value and liquidity.

Steemtg will also consider running a trading bot when cost and potential profit make sense to do so.  When this occurs the automated bot trading will be like a form of mining that is potentially worth more than cryptocurrency mining and add value to the MTGOTIX bitshares asset.

This may also serve as a way to attract new users to steem(it) and some demand and use of STEEM and Steem (Backed) Dollars as this business will offer to buy and sell digital items.  These may also be featured on steem marketplaces such as Peerhub.  Which will be tried out along with other markets to see the viabilities of these different marketplaces.
More about Magic: the Gathring: Online game and products may be read about at:

There is also MTGO WikiPrice: is the Magic the Gathering Online card pricing system listing many MTGO bots that buy and sell the cards you're looking for.  This website can show the prices, market, and many trading bots out there.

Only a few places accept cryptocurrency such as bitcoin for Magic: the Gathering cards.  With people interested in this possibility I believe this business may do well.  This may be read about on reddit:

Will be exploring possible cryptocurrency e-commerce possibilities to expand this business as they are both big interests of mine.

Thank you for reading about my evolved business idea.
