Awesome work!!!  +5%

One question.. ok a few.. what kind of artists are you looking to sign up? Are you looking for bigger names or indis looking to grow? Whats the cost involved for the artists? Is there any kind of 'refer' in there also for getting artists signed up as 'members' if there is such a thing.
Looking for small indie artists first to test out to platform and report bugs and things of the sort.
There is no referral program in MUSE since the fees are quite low. We are trying to get the music industry on board and show them how they can AVOID the high fees which come with a thousand middlemen.
MUSE must always stay profitable of course, but in the early days, it's all about getting people on board,  funding their account in muse_USD, and buying and trading artist Notes.
Fees will eventually be for creating your smart contracts and creating your Notes as an artist.
Those fees will go to the network and not a referrer. There will not be a referrer. At least not yet!

1. Why cob have the time to register his account, but have no time to say hi in the forum at the big time of launch?
2. Why cob's lifetime member only payed 40 museļ¼Œ while cass and many of us have to pay 10000 muse?
3. Why the account of cob get 80% of lifetime referrer, while cass and many of us get 0%?

I just got back from the conference. I have not personally launched anything.

MUSE also does not have a referral program. The fees should all be going to the network and are currently only there to prevent spam.
Those can later be ajusted of course. Right now the plan is to make it as low cost as possible for all users.

Changes coming soon.

And yeah, we can always turn it over to the community. Workers are one thing that make Graphene awesome afterall

so much excellent suggestions and you used the worse logo ever! (just my personal opinion)

If that becomes a big issue, it can always be changed. MUSE is P2P and community owned afterall!

Muse/SoundDAC / Back from Washington DC

Hello everyone.

As you know, Eddie and I went to Boston on october 2nd to attend Berklee's Fair Music Open Forum.
Although we got great feedback from most, some people (even panelists) thought what we proposed as a solution to the music industry's problem was far fetched, "pie in the sky" and decades away from being possible.

As announced last month, I was invited to speak on a panel at the Future of Music Policy Summit at Georgetown University in Washington DC. Eddie and I decided to move the MUSE blockchain launch date from November, to the day of the Panel talk so that no one could say we are talking sci-fi star trek bs.

We spoke with Cryptonomex and it was technically possible... although it would be rushed and many MUSE specific features would have to be added to it later.
We told Bytemaster to go ahead with it. We are not here to impress the crypto crowd. We are here to impress the music industry and as a side effect, bring Graphene, its community and crypto in general to the mainstream.

So Eddie and I prepared to invade and conquer DC. All was going well, although that hurricane was threatening to cancel a bunch of Texan flights. It turns out that hurricane was dwarfed by some bigger issue for us... Eddie's father, a prominent figure in the city of Houston, passed away.
I won't go into details regarding Eddie's personal or family life. Just know that it was impossible for him to attend the DC event we had prepared for.
I had 24 hours to adapt to this turn of events. (What a crazy day that was)

The conference itself was nuts! It turned out to be the best event we attended so far for the PeerTracks/MUSE project!
After the 2 days (which included my panel, the networking cocktail and VIP closing show) were over, every single person knew what PeerTracks was. Keep in mind the attendees were no small fish! Representatives of Congressmen, CEOs of large music companies, Music law firms, etc. All well connected people.
Minds where blown and we have more meetings than I know what to do with right now haha!
In fact, I JUST got home and I need to book my trip to New-York City where Eddie and I are meeting big fish next week. No breaks! Launching the chain on Monday was well worth it!!!

We are now moving on to the invite only artist sign up phase of the project.
We will soon manually create the profiles of some pioneer artists that want to take the platform of a spin. This will be our version of alpha testing and we will see how everything flows between MUSE and PeerTracks. It will bring light traffic to MUSE while we perfect the whole thing. As you must have noticed the GUI of the wallet is still purely financial so that will be made to reflect the non-techie nature of our future users.

I'm swarmed and exhausted. I'm off to recharge. It will be good to get my partner back so we can prepare to invade NYC Texas style!

Very basic place to point people to.

Nice.  Do you want typos/edit requests sent anywhere in particular?  Is this site on github somewhere?

PM me the typos please.
Site not on Github yet.

A little history and perspective to the rescue!

Invictus Innovations said anyone could use their tech as long as they sharedropped 10% to PTS holders and 10% to AGS holders. Leaving 80% of the chain to PeerTracks.
PeerTracks inc. would allocate that 80% as they saw fit, x% to pre-sale of Notes, y% to this, z% to that.

If you recall, that was the original proposal, which got shot down quite quickly.

We replaced that "centralized beginning model" with something that harnesses the power of DPOS and we all agreed it was much fairer:
Just 10% to PeerTracks but allow dilution, which would be in the control of ALL stakeholders, not just PeerTracks.

This made everyone happy since, it removed centralization, and put the funding and development into the hands of everyone instead of just one corporation (PeerTracks). It also did not guarantee there would ever even be a need to dilute, unlike the original proposal.

So until Graphene there were 1.5 billion MUSE Core Units with infinite stakeholder-approved dilution.

The only thing that changed with Graphene is that we have put a CAP on dilution to a nice round number 500 million, making TOTAL possible MUSE Core Units to be 2 billion.

So what we basically did is go from infinite possible dilution to a hard coded max possible dilution of 25%. Your welcome.

And once again, don't like the reserve fund? Vote to burn it all!

So to clarify!

The 500 million Reserve Fund is not in the hands of PeerTracks inc.
It's in the hand of the stake holders. It's the MUSE blockchain's own reserves.

The PeerTracks Stake is 10% of the original 1.5 Billion. Some 150 Million Shares NOT the 500 million reserve fund that might never even see the light of day before workers burn it all haha.

Hey guys, thanks for the kind words!  I tried to sign up and the sign up button is not functional. 

I'm sorry about the status of the Bitshares song, I will likely have to refund the funds when it's reasonable to close my short.  Life just kicked my ass at the wrong time...I wish I could have come through.


Hi Toby! When did you try and sign up? This form was updated yesterday. If it's STILL causing a problem TODAY I will:
1. curse thy lord
2. Get a dev on it again asap

Let me know!

Those are pretty nice. The Pendragon/Cass logo.

The guy that did the PeerTracks P designed one. the MUSE information page will be based off of that.

MUSE being P2P means everything about it is up to the Members of the Distributed Organization of course.

Everything should be online shortly! Will link it here for yalls review.   (:

Muse/SoundDAC / Re: NOTE Snapshot and MUSE launch date!
« on: October 21, 2015, 05:28:05 pm »
So I imported my BTS 0.9.3 wallet to BTS 2.0 and my "Notes" from BTS 0.9.3 do not show up in my new wallet.   Is that how it is supposed to happen?   Will this new snapshot result in my Notes being added back into my account once MUSE launches?

Allz good in the hood!

As Xeroc said, keep that file! Once you login to you MUSE wallet, you will do the exact same thing you did with the BTS 2.0 wallet and you will see your MUSE Core Units appear in your balance.

BitShares 2.0 does not list Notes. Only MUSE will (under its new name: MUSE)

I am interested.  Do you have a testnet so we can get used to the software?  If not will it be close enough to bts2 that we wont need a test net?

It will be just like BTS 2.0 yes.

Saw this:

Very cool. Who did this? Cass?
Is anyone working on updating it?
