General Discussion / Re: Associated Press, DAC

I have a question.
If someone has a lot of APshares in this case,  does it mean he actually gain control of this DAC to a degree?
Since that writters are paid with APshares,  can he sell his APshares to make APshares priced down?

Thanks in advance.

Based on the OP case study people buy shares in the authors articles so that they don't really have shares the APshares DAC as far as I can tell. Also the author doesn't receive APshares they are paid by dividends & transmission fees associated with people publishing the article to more people.

Which is very understandable :)

I missed it? (head shaking) Sorting through the comments I feel like I missed a great idea, Plagiarism is actually easy to detect with some type of software, anybody have a copy of the original idea I missed? looks interesting.

As far as I can tell the OP is the original idea but I don't think Invictus are going to develop this as they are working on other projects such as Keyhotee. Therefore I, and do correct me if I'm wrong, believe this idea is free to be developed.

I too figured there is already existing software that can detect plagiarism however software I am aware of (TurnItIn) will pick up things with quotes  in them for instance and flag those as plagiarised. This software generally relies on a human source to then manually go through those articles which have been flagged to confirm if they are plagiarised or not.

My thinking was a similar system can be implemented for the DAC with there being people who check flagged content to see if it is a copy or not. This check could be sent to multiple people to prevent bots from just saying they are or aren't plagiarised with an individual being given a score which is based on the number of correctly identified documents.

Ultimately, this system would be useable with not only text files but music, video, games etc etc. which leads me to think it would be best to create Media DAC for this purpose, which can be used by other DAC's focused on specific media (say a sports magazine DAC or a medical journal DAC etc.).

Dang to slow, congratulations Sy

The thing to optimize with this DAC would be the sorting and matching algorithm.  Not all jobs are equal and not all types of job seekers want all types of jobs.  I think a DAC could be successful.

The way I see it there would be an overarching job bank DAC which provides the core services and then more specific DAC's would be forked that focus on particular job markets.

ok, if you ask me someone's trying to fu-- up the pool (or is using a totally broken status update script)
more than 5k connections on port 80 while 4k miners are connected...

   ??? Have noticed she's been slooooow today but figured it was just the difficulty rising...

I think you'll find every corporation can be adapted to a DAC so this idea is no different. I could see how the media DAC I've been thinking about could interact with this corporation. For instance a journalist wants to add a quality article that will create a good amount of money. In order to add value to an article it must be credible and well written, value which can be added by using services provided by fact checkers, editors etc. So a journalist would list an ad on this service for the people required and hires them for the desired service. They would then receive a percentage of the royalties generated each time the article is distributed. Finally people could hold a score on this DAC which would be calculated based on the final distribution of the work they contributed to and people could use this to measure the quality of workers on the site.

Is there anything wrong?

Just paid, was a very big block by the looks of things

I just posted fixes for the MacOS build at and submitted a Pull request for xolokram. I'm not positive that the CMake changes will work for Windows or 64-bit Linux, though. That should be tested before it gets merged.

I tried this on my mavericks system and got the following upon make:

I was going to have a play today to see if I could work out what was going on. Were you getting the same errors on make that I was (something to do with the endian.h include?)

Awesome thanks a lot for the responses, want to stay up and read those articles but I need to sleep. Will mull it all over and come back with some ideas to see if they work or not.

Lol ok that makes sense then, hopefully everything is damage free

4gb. 512mb per thread.

Did you try 256? Probably wouldn't go any lower

General Discussion / ProtoMediaShares
« on: November 22, 2013, 05:28:05 am »
Largely based on various ideas that have been thrown around, I decided it would be best to implement a ProtoMediaShare with the following objectives:

•   Prove DAC’s (Decentralized Autonomous Corporations) can be implemented successfully
•   Decentralize distribution of all forms of media including but not limited to news, movies, music and books
•   Create a viable way for people to make money from non-tangible goods such as text, video and audio via mass distribution whilst making the cost free for the end user
•   Remove all censorship of media
•   Allow for people to submit content anonymously
•   Allow for people to view content anonymously
•   Encourage the highest quality of content possible through market mechanisms

This thread started from the OP below but I decided to make it the home on here for this particular project. I encourage everyone to throw ideas around, I'll give ample warning for any developments and with the nature of DAC's anyone who follows can get in early. Ideally I would like to see this project forked into more specific DAC's that focus on a particular media (Australian News DAC or African Gospel Music for example) and as far as I can tell there will be hundreds of ways to do so.

Feel free to pm or ask questions in here, I won't have all the answers, but that's the point. We can all work together to get to our common goal.

I was reading in the religion DAC thread about bittunes. I'm just curious as to weather invictus or anyone else has approached this organisation about the idea of forking from Protoshares? If not I guess that leaves the idea available for implementation?

Also, could this and the APDAC possibly be formed from a more "primitive" DAC simply called "Media" which works on the ideas already expressed but just lays the ground work for the distribution and payment to investors/writers/artists?

Then you could form from the Media DAC a DAC for music, A DAC for news, A DAC for books etc. etc.

Sorry if none of that made sense, my brain has about a million thoughts right now haha!

Wow...this is a spectacular idea and has help me get my head around protoshares and their potential. My roommate is a journalism student, have discussed this with him, we've got some ideas to make this work which I'll flesh out in the coming days.

Time to get my hands on a (bigger) pile of protoshares :)

How much RAM do you have and how much are you allocating to each core?
