290 sats you say!!!!

looks like its actually 300.  As much as I might like to believe that this whale meant to type in 3000, and will come back in a few minutes to remedy his mistake, I think a far more likely scenario is that he is attempting to manipulate us.

One can never know for sure.  ;)

Damn, never thought syscoin would trade higher than BTS lol
That should get some motivation

A regular pump-and-dump not unlike the past ones.  One benefit though - it draws in new users with new ideas and energy.  :)

Would be nice if we could have a trezor-like solution for bitshares yeah, especially for people like me with memory-problems. About the cold-storage with proxy voting, how would that work? Is there a wiki-page for it?

If I am not wrong, xeroc was working on a cold wallet solution.  [member=120]xeroc[/member], how is it going?
I do have these: https://github.com/xeroc/jshares
You can print them and set your public keys to those paper wallet keys ..

For offline signing .. I need a little more time .. but the biggest part of constructing and signing transactions in python is now complete

Great!

I am looking forward to a more secure offline transaction.

Now HOW on earth must a newbie like me know that or do that if the account does not open in the first place because of the init.error?
Most newbies are afraid to push buttons for fear of messing up, as well as  afraid .to ask questions for fear of appearing stupid
As a group leader,however,  I have to ask these stupid questions in order to be able to help my group.

The GUI is not as friendly as it should. The devs are improving it.  There is no silly questions here. Please feel free to ask any, any question.

Dex working fine for me. Maybe just open ledger feeling it.

Dex is working great for me as well.  Even when I use OL as the endpoint.  Even if they attacked our 3 https api endpoints we could spin new ones up rather quickly.  An attack against witness nodes could cause some issues, but I think we could spin up new instances pretty quickly.

The 3 API can be protected by anti-DDOS cloudfare and more API can be easily spinned up indeed.  Perhaps now is a good time to sell our bts DEX to poloniex.  [member=16353]Akado[/member], what is your take on this?

Technical Support / Re: Why annual memberships are going away
« on: March 15, 2016, 04:23:57 am »
Unless you actually referred annual members...those referrers get screwed.

Most of the 31 annual members were either registered by OpenLedger or existed at genesis.  There are exactly four actual referrals of annual memberships, by three people.  If the community thinks reimbursing them is important, it would be possible to set up a worker to pay them manually (or make arrangements with an existing worker to do this).  One of those four annual memberships upgraded to LTM on its own, so their referrer has already been paid.  The remaining two referrers (two of the three accounts were referred by the same referrer) are:

1.2.97634 (referred annual member in block #3028579)
1.2.32176 (referred annual members 1.2.97382, 1.2.101152 who upgraded in blocks #1391978, #3255854)

Not against getting rid of annual membership for the time being because i too believe it is not the most important inclusion. however i must say that drawing meaning from the data of the existing experiment is not as simple as you suggest. there are many other factors that come into play. most namely is the UI and UE.  most people who have joined us have done so at a time when the wallet was not at all user friendly...which i believe is one of the primary reasons most our marketing efforts have yet to have paid off. 

remember that any of these studies that showed the effectiveness, if done correctly, have been tested in environments when the final product was considered finished so this element would not bias results.  i personally do not know of which studies you are talking about though. 

if you want ill gladly look over them :)

I too, believe that annual membership should come back at a later date, perhaps when LTM becomes popular.

if a single witness fed in a very wrong price couldn't that trigger margin calls / forced settlement?

No. bts takes the median of all witnesses' feeds.

ETH tanks hard, causing BTS to tank hard.

ETH goes back up, BTS doesnt.

:(

ETH at 0.028. Is that the beginning of a bubble burst?

unacceptable uses include using the EVM as a file storage, email or text messaging system, anything to do with graphical interfaces, and applications best suited for cloud computing like genetic algorithms, graph analysis or machine learning.

There would be less of a difference when bitshares eventually implement a compatible EVM.

Then I also need to know if there is a minimum amount of BTC/Satoshi that one has to send or not.

AFAIK, openledger's Open.xxx tokens eg https://bitshares.openledger.info/#/market/BTS_OPEN.BTC have the lowest deposit/withdrawal fee.  Blocktrades and MetaEx can chip in on this.

what if Polo had an api call :  Convert all funds to BTS and withdraw post-haste. lol

some features of the BTS network are marketable to traders.  The speed of the transfers is one thing, you can move in or out of an exchange in usually less than 10minutes.  You have some ability (albeit limited) to hedge your positions from your own wallet. Plus the fact that it uses a different api, it has different attack vectors which make it more likely to survive an exchange hack.

BTS is a cool fast network indeed but it does not have the liquidity to absorb polo's fund at one go yet.
