General Discussion / MAID
« on: July 14, 2016, 12:52:53 am »


The long term downtrend that started on March 3 is still intact and the short term uptrend that started on June 14 is now negated.  I'm thinking MAID has until Sunday to break out of the long term downtrend. If not, price will drop hard.

A strong surge above 11222 will signal a rally.

Technical Support / Bitshares 2.0 wallets and subwallets
« on: November 02, 2015, 12:27:22 am »
I created a new wallet,  bts-parent, and funded it with 50 bts.

I subsequently created 3 new wallets, and funded each of them with 10 bts from the parent wallet.

So now I have:
bts-parent wallet (20 bts)
--bts-child1 (10 bts)
--bts-child2 (10 bts)
--bts-child3 (10 bts)

Currently all the wallets use the parent password. I want to disengage the children from the parent and give each wallet a unique password. But when I log into the Wallet Management Console, only the parent account is visible.

Am I missing something?  ???

General Discussion / 3 publications cite bitshares today
« on: October 10, 2015, 07:32:37 pm »
Forbes on OpenLedger:

CCN on Identabit:

Baystreet on remittio using the bitshares backbone:

This is smart online marketing. Lots of people will be searching google news for information about bitshares after the 2.0 launch. Teasing out the term "bitshares" now is a good way to capture those future searches. If these articles get backlinks from other sites, the google search algorithm will boost their rank. So for the short term at least, these articles are likely to become preferred search results in google news queries for the word "bitshares".

Technical Support / Vesting and 2.0
« on: September 21, 2015, 12:07:55 am »
Simple question: will vested bts continue to be collected in version 2.0? If so, is the procedure the same? eg: wallet_collect_vested_balances username

I have been trying to sync my bts wallet to the network for days. Whenever I do, I get the "severe network problems" line at the bottom of the wallet browser, and it keeps counting up. I have the latest version of the wallet. Anyone else having this problem? I just updated to windows 10, so I wonder if there is a connection?

Nanocard / Forbes: Is The NanoCard Bitcoin's 'Killer' App?
« on: July 16, 2015, 02:46:15 pm »

The company aims to be known globally as offering exchange possibilities of crypto coins to fiat (i.e. currency deriving value from government regulation or law – and vice versa. And, CCDEK this July launched its eagerly awaited Bitcoin debit card – dubbed the Nanocard - in collaboration with forex platform Bit-x, a crypto currency and mining trading platform, software developers Cryptonomex and smart contracts platform BitShares.

General Discussion / Voorhees at the helm of Shapeshift

badda bing

BTW - does anybody know the status of BitUSD at ShapeShift? BitUSD is listed but disabled.


BitShare's Stan Latimer has taken it upon himself to devise Three Laws of Robotics for Distributed Autonomous Corporations:

A DAC must always obey its own published business rules.
A DAC must never change its rules without consent of its stakeholders, except where such change would conflict with the First Law.
A DAC must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the first two laws.

According to Larimer, a DAC's mission statement — or utility function — would be "typically implemented as publicly auditable open-source software distributed across the computers of their stakeholders."

General Discussion / Jeb McCaleb Against the World: A Crypto Romance
« on: February 06, 2015, 01:43:27 am »
This is a very long but EXTREMELY INTERESTING article in the NY Observer about Jeb McCaleb, his wife, his kids, his girlfriend, Mt Gox, Ripple, Stellar, Wells Fargo's credibility, and the tragedy of coinpunk babies.

"Stellar’s credibility depends on exploiting the fundamentalist strain of libertarianism that animates the coder community."

Bitshares does the same thing: it's designed from ideology not pragmatism. That's a weakness imo.

More pull quotes for tldr:

"One of the things Stellar has been doing to distinguish itself from Ripple Labs is to remove the protections that Ripple Labs had built to accommodate the “know your customer” and anti-laundering needs of its banker partners."

"It would be naïve to think the federal government will stand idly by when its control over currency and financial transactions is threatened. Mr. Shrem’s experience was just one example."

“This is clearly the end of the line for Stellar. I mean, they’re not admitting that, but I mean, my God, you might as well be running a currency on an Excel spreadsheet. Stellar is now counterparty to a currency. And it’s a very weak counterparty. If Stellar Development Corp goes out of business, holders have nothing. Compare that to ripple or Bitcoin—if there was no Ripple Labs, ripple the currency would still exist, just like Bitcoin. The new proposed Stellar protocol defeats the whole purpose of distributing protocol and they’ve had to stop that because their consensus was broken. They’re trying to pin this on Ripple but from where I sit, Ripple has never been more stable. They’ve never been doing more transactions and have something like 90 people on the team. I suspect Jed probably broke something about a month ago, but make no mistake—this is a catastrophe for them. This idea that Jed is gonna invent a new consensus system in a couple of months and their phony 4 million accounts will just sit there and wait …”

The insider trails off and collects his thoughts. “At its core, Stellar is no longer a cryptocurrency. It’s a token form counterparty, and what is the risk of that counterparty? They don’t disclose how much money they make. I mean that’s why the SEC exists, right? So not only can you not rely on transactions of any kind going through because, as the sole validator, Stellar is the entire arbitrator of that, you’re holding assets that used to be a digital asset that is now a digital liability. That’s a fundamental change, especially ironic coming from Jed, the purist libertarian. Now he runs a sort of unregistered central issuer of liability. It’s really stunning.”



"I am a sophisticated Bitcoin user and I get paranoid every time I request or make payment in Bitcoin. One time I gave someone the wrong address and 3 BTC went to some lucky sole soul out there. "

soul = the immaterial part of a person; the actuating cause of an individual life

sole = only [OR the underside of footwear or a golf club]
-sole rights of publication
-I have gum stuck to the sole of my shoe.

more fun with sole and soul:


the undersurface of a person's foot.
-"the soles of their feet were nearly black with dirt"
-the part of the undersurface of a person's foot between the toes and the instep.
-the undersurface of a tool or implement such as a plane or the head of a golf club.
-the floor of a ship's cabin or cockpit.

3rd person present: soles; past tense: soled; past participle: soled; gerund or present participle: soling
-put a new sole onto (a shoe).

Webster's will do:

soul noun \ˈsōl\
: the spiritual part of a person that is believed to give life to the body and in many religions is believed to live forever

: a person's deeply felt moral and emotional nature

: the ability of a person to feel kindness and sympathy for others, to appreciate beauty and art, etc.

General Discussion / Milestone changes
« on: January 07, 2015, 08:04:05 pm »

Milestones have changed as of today. It looks like the 1.0 release is set back 6 weeks.

Any official comments about the development roadmap?

I updated to version 0.4.24 just yesterday, so I know the blockchain in the wallet on my hard drive is up to date.

Even so, when I launch the bts client and it takes about 5 minutes of hard drive activity before the login screen finally appears.

As the bts blockchain has gotten longer, the time it takes to launch the client is increasing.

I wonder: a year from now, how long will it take to launch the client?

Anyone else have a similar experience?
