voted for this one as i think is definitely a good idea to have bitshares exposed in this event.

2
is there any plan to send cards to south america again anytime in the future ?

For stakeholder info. With the supplemental worker me and the escrow group were able to cover all the debt and burn back to the chain 42,585 BTS. This was done 2018-07-27.
Operation can be seen at http://open-explorer.io/#/operations/1.11.350044913

Stakeholder Proposals / Re: [Worker Proposal] Bitshares UI Renewal
« on: July 25, 2018, 07:41:25 pm »
fully support this worker. voted for it.

there are obvious reasons for me to support it, i already know the team, it is the reference wallet, work here must continue.

but most important is that i was impressed with the improvements on the light wallet in the last time. i had an old version and installed the last just today, changes are notorious and all for good, everything i tried worked, something that was not the case time ago.

keep up the good work!

i like the idea of having more infrastructure with official worldwide nodes as proposed.

a few points to consider:
- there is no node in south america. i understand blockchain usage in general is not so popular here as other continents, still i think a node in Brazil or Argentina can bring some value.
- will you consider on hosting 1 elasticsearch node ? i think that if the wallet start using the feature we might need 1 more official node available(there is already 1 up from the BBF infrastructure worker rest is community members aka @clockwork).

price looks reasonable and APAsia already have a reputation in the community, i think it will go throw.

pd: also no node in Africa where the usage is probably even less than South America. Node in Hong Kong ?

As it was expected the price of BTS remained low the whole period so i had no option to submit a supplement worker to get the funds needed to pay the debt.

The details of this are here: https://github.com/oxarbitrage/worker-proposals/blob/master/supplement.md

Worker id is: 1.14.110 and it is now available for voting.

Please let me know any question, it is important this to be approved, get the payments done and burn the rest the most quickly as possible to don't interfere with  other worker and to don't speculate on the price further. This is why the worker is short duration(5 days) and asking 20,000 BTS per day(for a total of 100,000 BTS) that should be enough to cover everything.

I am moving into the bitshares-core team worker as in different talks with several community members i concluded it will be the best path to take.

I want to thank all the stakeholders, proxies, community in general that always supported me, i will make a new post with some closing notes after all this gets solved.

Thanks again.

just tried and it is working fine. make sure you use your account id(1.2.X) and not your name. should work.

This worker provokes me different sensations.

In one side, i strongly think a full redesign as proposed here is what bitshares needs. Since the beginning of the web front ends change all the time as technology advances in the field. All big players makes a full redesign of their web page once every 2 or 3 years. Start from scratch with a new foundation and direction can be the best thing to do if current foundation is obsolete.

For what i see in the audit and worker link it seems to me this team are professional enough to do the job.

In my humble opinion if we end up with a new modern UI as proposed the impact in BTS price will be direct, something stakeholders will want.

In the other hand, this particular worker does not end with a single line of code but just a (very valuable) preparation of what the team can do in a second worker, it kind of force the stakeholders to vote for this worker and the next one(no price yet).  Stakeholders need to think in at least double price(and double time) to get the final product.

Another thing that i think it could be handled a bit better is to create some sort of cooperation with the current UI worker, i understand that for the team having all in house is more efficient but we have current employees with their worker proposal expiring right now and with no possibility of joining the new project.

I understand this is a free market, competition is good but as part of the bitshares-core team, if a new worker proposal of this kind came into the core, i will maybe accept it but i will definitely don't like it.

Even with that, this stage of preparation will mean that everybody will be keep using the current UI for a while, this should give enough time to settle this things.

Great job overall, i like this worker and i will be probably voting it, i can offer myself as an escrow if needed, i am not a committee member but i am well known in the community.

Thanks for this great tool. It works very well.

Is there also a way to automatically convert the displayed trades into a better format? Only asset IDs etc. are displayed (not the coin names) and therefore do not directly show the trades.

I have to declare every single trade for tax purposes. Thus typical entries like Buy 1 ETH for xxx BTC... would be important.

let me see what i can do, ill update in the next days.

Hello stakeholders, it had been a while since my last update in my worker thread, i have a few announcements that i will like to share.

As noticed i stopped to update the thread bi weekly with work done. The reason for this is that making the report takes too much time to collect the info, it can be easily obtained by following my github account, telegram channel or msg me or others directly. With the new bitshares-core worker proposal @fox is updating the community more professionally than what i can do. In short, spend for example a morning creating a report with github links dont have much value as invest that time working on an issue, a document, helping someone, etc and i think the community will prefer that too. Please anyone with an objection to that let me know, i will be happy to assist on how the info can be obtained.

Next, this worker was created when price of BTS was at the top of 0.8 against the dollar. Worker haves protection of 2.5 multiplier so with BTS at around 0.35 worker is fine to cover the monthly payment. As the reader may know, this is pretty far to be the case in the last time so worker i having problems to pay. Some payments were made but it is pretty much behind.

Thanks to the bitshares-core proposal and my contributions of a few hours in there i am getting some additional USD, plus some money i had from before i can say i am fine in this moment. I am not in a rush to get paid. So what i will prefer to do is to wait some more and don't buy USD now and speculate with saving some money to the blockchain with a higher BTS price.

It is very probable that this worker is going to need a helper worker proposal to pay the debt, however the plan will be to keep the BTS now looking for an increase in price to pay a good part of the debt or, at the end, just buy the USD we can and add the helper worker.

Idea is to avoid the helper worker completely or make it the smallest possible. I asked the worker escrow group and they agree. As a reminder, the escrow group for this worker is: @xeroc, @svk, @fox, @elmato and @valentin.

Please any suggestion/objection against this plan of action let me know.

Finally, when the worker expires my idea is to keep working in bitshares. I have the option to be part of the bitshares-core team or propose a new worker. Not fully decided yet, idea is to try to continue for the same money without being a charge to the bitshares-core proposal. The best and easier for all is what i will be seeking. Will update on that, there is still time, current worker expires 22 of July.

Thank you for reading.

for testnet explorer please check: http://bitshares-testnet.xyz/#/dashboard

just tested BSIP37: https://steemit.com/bitshares/@oxarbitrage/create-index-assets-in-the-bitshares-dex

question: will boost testnet usage to have 1 or 2(smartcoin) assets fed by the witnesses in the testnet ?

$10k just for the domain bitshares.exchanges is way to expensiv.

I don't see a single dime spent on real marketing .

A simple domain name like bithsares.exchanges brings nothing if it won't be promoted so i can't see the value of $10k for that domain.

I also don't understand why nobody else is stepping in and asking why the domain is so overpriced as it basicly has no value

i asked the same question here https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=26167.msg317163#msg317163

it will be good if we can post here at least 1 sample if possible in the public testnet of each bsip and related consensus change in this release. if done by UI screenshots will be good, if cli samples then pasted text will be enough for this purpose.

@abit maybe we can talk and invite @bitcrab to participate more public in this testing stage?

the website looks great to me to be honest.

as far as i know(of course it is not much and maybe i am wrong) chris haves nothing to do with the bitshares foundation.
