General Discussion / Autobriding == Automatic bond market
« on: September 25, 2016, 06:29:10 pm »
One of the requested features is the bond market, which means that not only can you short BitAssets against the collateral (BTS), but you could also short BitGold against BitUSD, which is more intuitive than shorting gold against some volatile crypto token.

Idea: if we had liquidity on the cross markets via autobridging, then you could short BitGold into existence and immediately sell it for BitUSD. You would then still be short on Gold , but long on USD instead of long on BTS.

If autobridging were implemented you would get the "bond market" for free. Good idea?

Im unable to load, it just shows the 3 dots loading animation. Anyone else seeing this?


Edit: Hmm never mind there was something wrong with my browser and I went on another pc. Mods feel free to delete.

General Discussion / CCEDK relaunch July 1st
« on: June 17, 2016, 12:26:37 pm »
Lets speculate on this:

Im guessing their new improved frontend is the BTS webwallet, so they are finally merging the Openledger and CCEDK brands together, which is great.

General Discussion / Transaction counts of other chains
« on: June 04, 2016, 10:40:07 am »

Litecoin is flat because its just a coin, whilst Ethereum is already at 40-60k transactions per day, whilst we can barely make 5K: (turn on limit order create & cancel)

Q: What smart contract is Ethereum actually being used for to generate such a high transaction count per day?

General Discussion / Ethereum Trading on Coinbase

Well I sure picked the wrong altcoin:

Anyone else remember that hangout when BM said "No, Im not worried about Ethereum"  :P

Technical Support / Webwallet bundle run without webserver
« on: April 24, 2016, 02:30:06 pm »
I recompiled the webwallet for the first time in a while, and it says in the readme that npm run build creates a bundle in the web/dist directory, and I can "use a webserver of my choice".

My question is, is it safe to just open up index.html in firefox, without serving that content from any webserver? I did that and claimed a few balances and it seems to be working fine as a webwallet. Just wondering if this is ok.

I recently discovered Christopher Cantwell's libertarian podcast series. He's worth checking out:

General Discussion / POLL: Why are you still hodling BTS?
« on: December 24, 2015, 03:41:11 pm »
Just wondering what others think, as I ask this myself.

General Discussion / Do we still have a halving in 2.0?
« on: December 24, 2015, 01:35:59 am »
In post 2.0, do we still have a halving that caps dilution over time? Or is it a case of dilution forever until the project is finished?

I see weve added 3M more shares since 2.0

General Discussion / Show something good on the front page

This is what happens when you dont have an account on Poloniex:

And this is what happens when you dont have an account on Openledger:

99% of visitors get bored within 3 seconds of your website and will move onto something else unless there is something that grabs them.

Visitors want to see a real exchange with activity first, then they will register and maybe deposit into it. I havent shared a link to BitShares to anyone in over a year. The last time I did I was buried as an altcoin spammer, and that would still happen if I shared this today. It needs to look less like a wallet and more like a real exchange.

Just my opinion. If it changes then I might actually start sharing links to BitShares again.

Right now there is 500 million BTS just sitting on centralized exchanges, not available to pay any fees to the network, just sitting there ready to drag the price down.

So why dont we require shareholders to fulfill responsibilities to support the network? The point being to gradually force BTS off centralized exchanges and into accounts that are active on the DeX. Centralized exchanges that earn huge fees from their users trading BTS back and forth will find that they have to pay for that privilege.

This is how to do it:

Every account (possibly with a minimum amount of 1millioin BTS) is required to perform market making activity on BTS/USD (we can work out the details) using at least 1% of the account's balance of BTS, every single calendar month. All applicable accounts that dont do this pay 5% of their BTS as a penalty. An example criteria of market making is to place an order within 10% of the price feed for a minimum amount of time.

Again, all details subject to discussion.

The only problem with this idea is that the centralized exchanges wont like this and might coordinate their stake to vote themselves onto the committee and disable this feature. But they are still a minority even if they all vote together, and if the community votes for this then we take back control of BitShares into the hands of the real supporters that use the DeX. And we can start earning millions of BTS of in fees.

This idea has some characteristics as the old 5% inactivity fee that BM floated ages ago. Im ready to do market making with 1% of my stake if required by the network.

OpenLedger / API call on Openledger?
« on: November 12, 2015, 12:09:02 am »
Is there a URL at that I can use to call APIs on Openledger's witness node?

Ive been looking at how the webwallet source does it, but I cant figure out how to extract a url. Does it require websockets first?

I specifically want to call the get_market_history api.

The witness node really frustrates me. I was sitting on a train without an internet connection but with the full blockchain saved on my laptop, trying to experiment writing some python scripts.

-Everytime I start the witness node it insists on doing a full rescan, which takes 10 minutes.
-When it does finish rescanning, I cant connect to any seed nodes because Im offline, so it then crashes which means I have to restart and rescan again.

General Discussion / Dump Poloniex, use OPENBTC
« on: November 04, 2015, 11:43:46 pm »
Lots of you have gone into Bitcoin to take advantage of its recent rally. So when you want to go back to trading BTS, why are you still using Poloniex's ledger and paying them fees, when you could support the blockchain instead?

Here you go:

When you bring your BTC over to Openledger, BTS will naturally get traded on the blockchain too, thereby ending up in stronger hands.
