I love my dog very much,But nothing to eat, I only do it

I think the price drop's starting to mess with our heads. Hahaha. Probably means it's a good time to be buying.

I have gotten more done for the future of BTS in the past month than in the 3 months prior and everyone on the core team knows it.

Hey, if keeping off the forum really is allowing you to bang out development like that then that's awesome. I'll take a more-or-less quiet but busting-ass BM if it means development pace is accelerated.  +5%

And @ Empirical: I think you're really, really overestimating the impact that dilution and the merger et al had on the BTS price. Just about every crypto in general has gone through the same phases: huge hype and price blowout followed by slow bleed. If nothing had changed supply-wise with BTS but the same promises remained unfulfilled (fiat on-ramps, marketing blitz, etc) I can pretty much guarantee we'd still be in about the same position price wise as we are today. Honestly it's just kind of how the markets work. Without real adoption it's nothing more than mass speculation, regardless of dilution etc.

I personally think the self-funding method of dilution is an incredible idea, and if the devs can truly knock out some key aspects/features in the next few months to raise the market cap, the self-funding will take on a life of its own.

Meh, I'm pretty sure they already lost their potential userbase as soon as they said bitcoin won't be around for long...

but lookie here, apparently they think they own the trademark for BitUSD now too:

•Bitcurrency™◦Bitdollar™ / BitUSD™
◦Bityuan™ / BitCNY™
◦Bityen™ / BitJPY™
◦Biteuro™ / BitEUR™
◦Bitpound™ / BitGBP™
◦Bitmxpeso™ / BitMXN™
◦Bitrupee™ / BitINR™
◦Bitswissfranc™ / BitCHF™
◦Bitphpeso™ / BitPHP™

•Bitmetals™ ◦Bitgold™ / BitXAU™
◦Bitsilver™ / BitXAG™
◦Bitplatinum™ / BitXPT™
◦Bitpalladium™ / BitXPD™


What a bunch of fools.™

I just asked softly

lol...1.0 will be ready when it's ready. Things seem to be moving along nicely lately; just take a look at Stan's latest staff meeting notes to get an idea of everything going on. Sounds like 0.9.0 will finally be ready for devshares this week, so we're getting there.

"Steamium will be integrated with and released along side of the eagerly-anticipated Half Life 3."

That's all you need to hear to know it's an April Fool's joke. Hah.

What is happening with remittence and J. Underwood?

I almost forgot about all that. The website looks nice (, although a work-in-process. And it seems underwun is at least still around (Last active March 29, 2015). Remittances are still a huge use-case/opportunity for BTS, so I'd like to hear more on this progress as well.

I believe the overall goal of BTS is "to find free market solutions to secure life, liberty, and property for all"...but that is a bit broad. Perhaps that would make a good vision statement, but a more narrow/present-focused mission statement is needed?

What's going on with Doge? BitShares got pushed to #6  :-X

Glitch on CMC. BTC38 has the most volume and price at 52 sat, CMC is reporting 70 sat overall. Not sure where the discrepancy comes from.

I find the OP to be a great idea. Do it!

or we can continue this way...

Agreed. You can't expect new users to just come rushing in because they too "believe" in the cause. Just doesn't work that way. Waiting for the organic growth to just kind of happen without some sort of catalyst to spark it is a surefire path to niche obscurity.

General Discussion / Re: Great news for our decentralized exchange?
« on: March 26, 2015, 09:12:57 pm »

...which side is BTS? Heh, I'd like to think we're the few, powerful Spartans pushing centralized finance off a cliff. Xerxes' endless hordes of bankers/trolls don't stand a chance.


lol it begins I guess...

who the hell's centralizedeconomics?

Still think it's a good idea though; just needs more fleshing out so everyone can come to a consensus on what would work best.

Why not connect it to Facebook so that you can do it right? Just about everyone is on Facebook now and Facebook checks for ID.

then you buy 10 fb accounts for $5 and it'll help no one. keep it within our resources, and keep it decentralized.

lol sounds like a good use-case for VOTE's identity verification system thingy.

I agree this is a great idea, and some form of it should seriously be considered for implementation ASAP.

not quite sure why this is worth a  +5%orgasm...  Basically all thats being said is that there are still people working on bitshares.  Big deal, thats what they should be doing.

Some ETA's would be nice to have... is this stuff all a pipe dream, or is there an actual target date to aim for?
ETAs are:
0.9.0 = March 25. 
0.10.0 = April 1 
0.11.0 = April 8
come on
Do not believe this schedule,they can change it anytime.

Yea, it's more frustrating than anything to watch the milestones. All they ever do is get pushed back, past due, pushed back, past due, rinse and repeat. Some realistic ETA's would be nice.

This topic is one of the best things I've seen on the forum recently.

Agreed. Updates like this on a semi-regular basis are exactly what investors are looking for.


Staff Meeting Notes

Here is a summary of yesterdays developer staff meeting.  I just got assigned the job of taking notes and publishing them in advance of the Friday Mumble session with Bytemaster.  Hopefully this will give everyone more time to get Fuzzy your questions where he can organize them rather than trying to respond to Bytemaster's opening statement in real time.

This week was spent continuing to harden and polish the system and squashing bugs.  James and Valentine continued to refine the user interfaces and add market functionality to their new wallets while Vikram and Ben completed some urgent market bug fixes and released version 0.8.0.  Meanwhile Dan and Nathan continue to work on refactoring the code to improve maintainability and enhance performance.  Check out the new database back end they just committed to github.

One of the coming updates will add features to help users avoid fat-fingering the wrong accounts.  The UIs will display an account number with every account to serve as another form of visual check sum and additional help in distinguishing between registered and unregistered accounts will be provided.

Meanwhile SynaptiCAD been working on adding support for "registered users" to (currently the site only supports anonymous users). Registered users will be able to track their transaction history, get reports on realized gains/losses, and generally be able to trade in a more organized fashion. On the backend of the gateway, they have improved their purchasing algorithms, which in turn allows them to offer better conversion rates between asset types. In addition, they're offering a near zero fee on Bitcoin to BitShares conversions to encourage new users to enter the BitShares ecosystem.  On the BitShares client side of things, they've been assisting in the analysis of the recent shorting bugs, the design of algorithms to correct them, and building/testing a new Windows and Linux binary that incorporates the fixes.

Adam has been in Scandinavia meeting with some people interested in his voting solutions.  Expect a report from him when he gets back later this week.

Business development is also proceeding at a brisk pace.  I just jotted down a list of fourteen different efforts I am currently tracking with outside entrepreneurs. We have ongoing Skype meetings with more than a handful of them each week.  You already know (or have had hints) about some but many have not yet been announced by these partners.  It's great to see so much stuff happening behind the scenes!

Do not let our new, more careful communication strategy fool you.  Every minute of each long workday is jam packed with activity to build up the value of the BitShares ecosystem.

Please send Fuzzy your questions for Bytemaster on Friday.

This needs its own thread.
