BEOS / Better Ballot Bot Gives Control to Voter Staking
« on: December 17, 2020, 05:24:19 pm »

Better Ballot Bot helps you set up your VOTING TICKETS to enable participation in BitShares governance.

The BitShares 4.0 and 5.0 main-net releases brought big changes to voting. You now need to lock up, or “stake,” BTS to acquire voting power. Longer lock times give a MULTIPLIER effect to your voting power. ✊

But the operations that stake-lock your BTS are so new that they are not yet supported in the Reference UI wallet. Thus users who are not comfortable with the CLI wallet have limited options to enable voting… until now!

Manna gives you stake in BEOS Ecosystem Business Trust which holds all kinds of valuable tokens for its members:

10% of
200,000 Cloudcoin

And ten cents off on quint setting a min value over four times bigger than BTS

I paid xeroc to modify it to require fewer feeds.
It should work now.

Request for votes for the Terradacs witness.

We are requesting the cn-voter upvote for the Terradacs witness on the BitShares blockchain. This witness is from the Terradacs Ltd. team which is a Maltese company which developed software that allowed the BLCA (BEOS Lmited Cooperative Association) to launch and operate, under license, the BEOS blockchain. The BEOS blockchain is a "middle chain" between bitshares and the EOS world. It is meant to make the advantages of each system available to each other and to bring value to both. The BLCA sharedropped 100% of BEOS tokens not reserved for non-profit development and support of the blockchain on participating bitshares holders under the now completed distribution called "RAINfall". The BLCA is continuing a distribution of "MANNA" tokens for 888 days to participating bitshares and BEOS token holders under the program called "SKYfall".

Specs for the Terradacs witness (which was voted in temporarily for a couple of days and was supplying a full  range of price feeds and did not miss any blocks):

Ubuntu Linux 19.04
Processor information Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 8 cores 64 GB RAMNVMe 500 GB storage
same specs for backup
Pricefeeds based on zappatas script but tweaked to our preferences

We're just past the half way point of rainfall.  Still as much to be given away as has been given away to date!

Participating BTS shareholders are voluntarily giving their voting power to BEOS so that BEOS is enabled to integrate with bitshares.

Erm, no. They voluntarily lock up their BTS to receive shares from the raindrop.

If you join the BEOS telegram room you will find a room full of people who support the BEOS team and look forward to them using their voting power to vote in BSIPs for trustless gateways. Claiming that people are only interested in the rainfall is simply not true.

Claiming that every rainfall participant supports the BEOS voting chaos, or whatever other plans the BEOS team might have, is equally untrue.

You shouldn't be collecting rainfall if you don't support our efforts.

I still have reservations about BEOS, primarily due to the favorable attitudes I've read concerning regulatory compliance by members of the BEOS team. I have much respect for Stan, OnceUponaTime , MichaelX and Dan Notestein, but I also see their track record of mistakes. We' all have one, we're all only human, and mistakes can't be eliminated. However, when mistakes become a pattern and ignored, aren't seen as a lesson to learn from, something must be done to raise awareness to a higher level, to stop the cycle.

For the record I have not participated in the BEOS rainfall. I am on the fence about it and I would hate to succumb to manipulation or bribery. It is very difficult to know the actual agenda of all the players, especially those behind the scenes, so abstaining is the best way I know to avoid that.

The main question is, is the BEOS voting power being used to restore the original disruptive, decentralized vision that BitShares was created for, or to dominate and control stakeholders towards a legally regulated, personal freedom limiting ecosystem the uninformed masses will accept? Is this a slippery slope towards incremental control, or the restoration of Austrian / free market economic principles that provide an ecosystem with integrity, accountability and promote personal financial freedom?

One question you need to ask yourself, if you don't want to see kyc and increasing regulator influence on BitShares, is whether the BTS held by those in control of BEOS deposits was intended from the start to be used to do more than facilitate the integration of BitShares and EOS, or, whether such integration requires kyc and fundamental regulatory changes to BitShares. If you don't care about that, feel free to put your head back in the sand and pay no attention to this question. If you do care I urge you to choose your course of action wisely.

I have observed the centralization of control through voting proxies, which was established to address the problem of voter apathy. It did solve the problem of apathy that paralyzed development and growth, but at the expense as time went on of centralizing control. I was not happy with the changes  imposed on BPs wrt price feeds. BSIP42 was a disaster in my mind, particularly in how it was thrust into production, and without any type of report or written conclusion to summarize the results of those "experiments". We now see a downward pressure on MCR from 175% down to 160%, rather than holding individuals personally responsible for their own collateral management. The global MCR value for an asset should be set with investor's safety, not profit as it's primary criteria. I see the influence of Keynesian economic advocates and if those are allowed to prevail we will end up with the same "brink of disaster" situation as mainstream financial markets are experiencing right now.

Perhaps we need more centralized planning to restore the vision and replace the Keynesian perspective with the superior Austrian approach. Ofc if that is to be done the centralized control must be trustworthy and be committed to doing that. I myself have more trust in those I specifically mentioned above, than I do with bitcrab and those who defer to his proxy.That's not to say I totally trust them, b/c of the regulatory attitudes they have expressed, especially wrt kyc policies. 

Whichever way you decide, the choice is currently yours to make. Choose wisely.

I can assure you that we have NO intention to change or centralize BitShares in any way.  Never KYC on BitShares.  That's its key strength.  We don't even have KYC to hold BEOS, although we do plan to have some assets that are compliant with the jurisdictions in which they need to operate. We are much more likely to put BEOS into international jurisdictions where users are free from regulatory overreach.  That's our biggest added value and its highly complementary to BitShares. BEOS is designed to layer on top of BitShares and add value to it while allowing folks who don't want that value to continue using BitShares as it is. 

So come over and get some BEOS while you still can, we've only given half of them away so far.

BEOS.COLD = 353,461,502 BTS
BEOS.GATEWAY = 8,751,761 BTS
TOTAL = 362,213,263 BTS

Which is 13.33 % of the total BTS supply

The raindrop would give you 7.5 BEOS/BTS

The average since beginning is 8.62 BEOS/BTS

Raindrop time consumed : 43/89 days
Raindrop time consumed : 48.31 %

us upgrading BitShares to a sidechain in the EOS universe

Is that your goal? Why didn't you say so in the rainfall terms?

How about asking people if they actually want that *before* you lure them out of their voting power?

We made this very clear from Day One in dozens of Steemit Posts and the White Paper and the website.

"Sockpuppet" is clearly "the artist formerly known as funkit" . Its obvious from style and all the points he has made on the telegram channel.  Funny that he needs a fake id account when "funkit" is as fake a name as they come.  What reputation could he possibly be protecting?

It breaks my heart to have such malicious slander directed against what should be celebrated as a boon to the whole BitShares ecosystem.  I'm one of the original founders of that ecosystem and always have its best interests in heart.  We have created BEOS with our own cash (700K and counting) and are giving it away to holders of BitShares, every one of which is eligible to move some of their BTS over to the new chain and collect months of rainfall.

People who do that obviously want to see BitShares integrated to take advantage of EOS technology.  That's what we will be voting for with their loaned voting power.  We are trying not to perturb the existing system too much but do feel we represent enough of the bitshareholders to claim a few committee slots and run a few nodes.  Is that too much to ask?

In the end, funkit is arguing that the existing alliances that control bitshares have the best interests of the ecosystem at heart and should not be perturbed.  Perhaps they do.  But there's a new alliance of voters who have every right to influence the future of BitShares and who are doing it by the book by pooling their voting power.

I honestly can't understand why anyone would object to us upgrading BitShares to a sidechain in the EOS universe where  all our assets can become useful to a much wider audience and all the smart contract features of EOS made able to use BitShares assets.  Think of the billions of EOS R&D and marketing that will make available to BitShares.

Methinks funkit's sockpuppet doth protest too much.
