Muse/SoundDAC / Website name. Brainstorming
« on: April 28, 2014, 12:04:26 am »
We are currently looking for a name for the website we are building that plugs into the Bitshare Music blockchain.

Think of a site like pandora and soundcloud but you can also trade songs on there.

What would you call it? It would be great if it could be a verb of course, like "google it" "facebook me" "Pin it" etc.

This is for brainstorming. If the idea is crap, post it anyway, it's meant to spark ideas, not be a final decision.

Think outside the crypto community. We are going after music listeners NOT crypto nerds that also happen to like music. Our costumers probly won't even know they are using crypto. (don't go off on that tangeant lol. Let's keep this thread for vomiting out ideas for names!)

Thanks guys! (and girls! and girls)

Muse/SoundDAC / Quick update regarding lack of updates
« on: April 16, 2014, 05:55:40 pm »
Hey everyone.

Just a quick update on the front-end project.

Eddie Corral and I are setting up a business that will create a website/social network that will be a mash up of:
-the itunes store

This will also allow you to buy and sell shares of individual songs. So add to that little list, a trading platform for digital shares of songs.

The reason we haven't updated... at all, is that we are still hammering out the vision and intricate details of not only the site, but of the legal structure and business plan.

We will update ONCE we have everything set up and ready to rock.

As for Zenithcoin, forget about that. It will have nothing to do with this project. We are rebranding and going to be using another method as far as funding goes.

Just a quick update.
What to take home from this little thread? When we have relevant news, you will know of it. Until then....

Hi everyone.

Eddie and I are developing a front-end website to the Bitshares Music Blockchain. In a nutshell, a stock market for music.
This is going to be a centralized corporation. We are currently looking for the best possible jurisdiction and corporate structure for this.

Question to you is, do you know of an expert we can talk to regarding this issue?

We will set up in any country in the world that allows us to operate and taxes us least.

Thank you for your help guys!

General Discussion / Where can I get info regarding Bitshares Me?
« on: March 05, 2014, 05:09:37 am »
Is there a white paper or a thread explaining it in detail?

While we are at it, anything explain Bitshares Domain. I heard Bytemaster say it wasn't the same as namecoin. This got me curious about it.

Muse/SoundDAC / Revolution in music. How would one go about it?
« on: February 09, 2014, 07:15:13 pm »
Alright guys (and girls?) here is my question to you all.

Let's say you are some kid, making music in your parent's basement, or a band trying to make it big, how could you use this new technology to make it big?

For example, would you create an altcoin BandNameCoin or BandNameShare and SOMEHOW tie it with you financial success?

Seems that would take lots of overhead and involve the law. Which we want to avoid. The goal is to have everything trustless and taken care of by a few lines of code.
So say Justin Bieber had a coin 5 years ago. People could have heard his music and said "Yo, i like this kid, he has potential, I'll invest in Biebershares" and a few years later, bieber's net worth is millions of USD so that investment in musical-crypto-pennystock really paid off.
Now this solution involves the law. Since the worth of the biebercoins are physically or digitally attached to beibers bank account.

So anyway, I'm wondering. What's the solution to this?

Basically, I'd like to figure out how ANYONE can "go public" and have people invest in them via cryto-currency/equity/whatevers.

Simple way to do this?

Yes I have read Adam B Levine's idea about Vx but I'm not sue I grasp it completely. Feel free to explain it in your own words if it allows for this.
And if it does, how would you go about it? Step by step.

General Discussion / Bitshares under the hood
« on: January 30, 2014, 04:02:13 am »
Can anyone explain exactly how III is combining ripple's consensus mechanism with Proof of stake?
I've watched the ripple video. I'm not sure where proof of stake would fit in all this.
Anyone have mad explaining skills? Or maybe a nice explainer article and video?

I think it's important to understand how it all works under the hood if we are to explain it to people and spread the word.


BitShares PTS / PTS price fall after BTS launch?
« on: January 26, 2014, 04:00:54 am »
I haven't thought it through that much but it seems like the main reason people are holding PTS right now is because it entitles them to some oh so sweet dividend paying Bitshares.

Do you think PTS price will collapse after III launches Bitshares X?

General Discussion / Adam Back interview. Thoughts?
« on: January 22, 2014, 11:15:35 pm »
For those of you that listened to the highly technical 1h44m long interview of Adam Back (interviewed by Andreas M. Antonopoulos) what did you think?

Anybody care to discuss what was said?

Even better, did anyone understand enough of it to TL:DR it?
It was a bit overwhelming and am trying to wrap my head around everything that was said.


Here is the interview:

General Discussion / How do you predict bitshares catching on?
« on: January 09, 2014, 03:25:37 am »
Who do you think it's users will be? Who will it be marketed for?

How do you imagine it breaking out of the altcoin micro-niche community?

Because right now, people would have to convert their fiat to crypto and that will almost surely be BTC. Then find an exchange that trades bitshares, and finally start trading bitassets with their new collateral (bts).

BTS still has the problem of the chokehold being the centralized fiat to crypto exchanges no?

How do you guys picture bts catching on to the point where there is enough volume/traffic to buy sell short etc?


General Discussion / militia DAC
« on: January 03, 2014, 04:37:32 am »
OK. I apologize in advance for most likely attrracting the NSA and DHS to this community with this thread.

I was reading an article about memorycoin abouthow it's a DAC that actually hires employees and pays them a salary. The can even be fired if the shareholders dislike their performance (lol @ unions).
I thought that was amazing.
I read bytemaster mention an idea of having a decentralized ISP with satellites and for profit mesh nodes. I was thinking to myself "wow we would be one hell of a civilization once communication, the media, and the world of finance is in the hands of the individual. Make the state obsolete."

But they i thought.... Oh wait, they have guns, air to space missiles, etc. We can bypass and outsmart them in the digitalworld no problem. But when it comes to the physical world, they can blow our ISP sats right out of the sky!

And yes i am aware that crypto currencies can starve off the state's funding on the long term. But for the sake of the idea, let's say they stay funded, well funded and armed to the teeth.

I thought of a Dencetralized Autonomous Army.

Imagine a DAC that hires people to be it's soldiers. They recieve funds at their public key/address. They recieve 3D printer files through something like bitmessage and download em à la bitorrent. Files for weapons and body armour etc.

The army (DAA) shareholders would be the ones calling the shots. Either with voting and or by hiring a general (like memorycoin does). If that general is a tyrant, well in a decentralized impossible to stop vote, bang! Funds stop flowing to this address and that address/id/generalcan't give out orders anymore. The replacement general has immediate control of the DAA.

If the state doesn't just shrivel up and die and actually starts to imprison us. If the start blowing up our ISP hardware. We'll need some physical defense.

I assume a DAA would be everywhere, super well funded, super efficient and incorruptible.
Imagine not knowing if your neighbor is a fellow soldier or not. Some would be open about it (i assume some would want actual training!) but some might be annonymous. The get the salary for "reserve troop", printed their equipment from home and get sall the updates through encryption.

Militia DAC sounds crazy i know. But i think it would be physically possible in the futue no?

We know there would be TONS of people interested in it. The occupy movement for example, military people that sign up to the US marines with good intentions i'm gonna purtekt freedom!" Only later realizing you've nbeen a peon in a huge chess game.

Anyway what do you all think?

Could it work? A defense DAC?

General Discussion / assistance required to grasp PoS.
« on: December 30, 2013, 12:10:59 am »
I've watched bitcoin under the hood, the blackboard series and the khan academy series on bitcoin. I've got a pretty good grasp on the technical side of it...  I'm no coder though!

Now what i don't get is how proof of stake works. Does anyone know of a good explanation floating somewhere online? Video, article, thread?
Something basic, 101, for dummies.

Thanks in advance!

MemoryCoin / MemoryCoin on MAC
« on: December 20, 2013, 06:21:09 pm »
I own protoshares and would like to claim my memorycoins.

Is it only for windows?

Keyhotee / I want to make sure I am ready for launch.
« on: December 20, 2013, 05:41:34 pm »
I'm definitely going to get Keyhotee when it launches.

Now here is the thing. I have no idea how or where.

Where will I be able to download it?
Will it already be mac friendly?
Is it supposed to be as simple as installing, choosing an ID, then clicking "mine"?

I'm ready for launch see, but when I think about it, I have no idea what "ready" means in this situation.

Any help?
