In general, you know when we know.  We are always eager to notify you of our latest thinking and we document it here on the forum in near real time.

It was like this before, but apparently no for recent. Community has many questions about AGS fund using, and not been notified until someone raised a question with anger, like travel to St. Martin, name changing to Hysteras, shareholder transfer by Li Xiaolai.

On the Bitshares forum statistics page at the bottom it seems to indicate that there have been 11108 new members just this year, what's the reason for the discrepancy between that and the 5000 total members number?

5000 is the active member number, means the user activated the account and loged in. The others did not activate the link in email or never login.

同一个东西,DNS会用 .p2p 作为TLD




OK, so it started as an NXT clone and then devs changed their mind  and decided develop their own coin.

lol scam  :P  :o

lol, I know NXTchg deleted lot of posts by ghosthouse in his simcoin topic. But it is funny to see it turn out to be the dev of NEM, very interesting.

No I don't see Bitshares at near-failure either. I think it's got the best technical talent in the field. I have complete faith in Bytemaster to deliver the best products and adapt/adjust where necessary. I don't think anyone can compete with him/Bitshares.

The conundrum though is that awareness and interest in this field is exploding. NXT, XCP and Ethereum are really generating a lot of buzz while Bitshares is in the doldrums.

Although the technical delays are a contributing factor, I think Bitshares forum history metrics speak for themselves. . (3200 new members in March, 1800 April, 1600 May, 1100 at current rates for June - Point to a downward trend when our rivals growth is exploding.)
The fact that >50% of people (Who are Bitshares supporters)  think that the website is average at best and our failure to help market the Lottoshares snapshot that just took place in any meaningful way stick out at me.

So my issue is just with Bitshares marketing. I highlighted it as the weak point a few months ago but since then have refrained from complaining too much as it would be counter-productive. As it stands, I'm still incredibly confident in my current Bitshares investment. However I would invest double the amount if I had confidence in the marketing. With only 30+ days of AGS issuance left I think I should speak up, because i3 may be getting much less exposure and funding because other investors have the same concerns I do.

I do agree the points here. I can see the forum volume going down tremendously in the past several months, and we have like 1-2 new active members per day compared to beginning of the year (30-40/day). Even the XTS test did not attract new members. It is not a good sign as we are getting close to a release and end of AGS donation.

From the news I read. Ethereum are having lots of local meetings globally. Counterparty team traveled to Silicon Valley to promote the product. Maidsafe had more than 500 devs signed up to participate the project. NTX AE are having close to 100 assets now and is the first choice for new projects now. I agree we are in the doldrums. And the new website can not even satisfy the current users. We need some modification in the marketing strategy.

Airdrop might be a solution here, but I don't think it will help much. Since the 50/50 promise for XTS allocation, the only thing we can airdrop is the XTS from PTS that in the AGS fund. If people never heard of bitshares before, we can't expect too much from the ~7% airdrop. And it may even cause a huge sell without good marketing. Lottoshares is supposed to be a good news, but even the PTS community are not fully aware of it.

Same to Empirical1, I have faith and confidence in Dan and whole dev team. But before we have adjusted the marketing strategy, I disagree with the airdrop, although Stan has stated several time that airdrop will happen.

Total # of fulltime/part-time/ developers and #contractor developers + total $ amount, would be nice…

You can find the list of fulltime dev in another post from BM:

Right now funds are being allocated to the following developers:
Eric Frias (C++)
Dan Notestein (C++)
Nikita (web)
Vikram (C++)
Syncad (Polish+Indian Devs/Testers)

On the operations side:
Pam (books), Stan, Arlen, Brian + Accountant + Legal Consulting + Travel

So we have about 17 full time individuals and many part-timers and misc expenses.     If you divide up the AGS funds among those people you see that we are operating with less than a 12 month runway (PTS funds are not liquid).  So if  you would like us to fund other parties then it will have to come at the expense of some of these individuals having job security for a minimum of 6 months.
