Muse/SoundDAC / Re: OpenLedger: Fiat USD, Euro and CNY to MUSE
« on: January 25, 2016, 07:26:27 pm »
kiddo are you f*ing with us or what?  a picture of you in front of a Hard Rock Cafe would be a milestone.

 +5%

It is now possible to purchase MUSE on OpenLedger with fiat currency.

An important milestone.

good lord. cob you are a scammer!

Have you lost your balls or why are you not able to address all the open points we are talking about in the latest update thread?

To me it seems like you are heavily trying to push your exit strategy with that stupid forbes article and ccdek, wtf.

Still holding your crap note you want to dump on us, am i right?

Give at least ONE evidence your "team" is still working or a simple software sample.

Your naive acting is annoying to be honest, i still remeber when you were making a big thing out of the "accidentely" posted secret sauce which you removed instantly.

Nothing of your smelly BS has come true so be a man and stop selling us crap.

Openledger / Re: OpenLedger Suggestions
« on: January 11, 2016, 02:19:17 pm »
Is CCEDK going to properly integrate with OpenLedger?

1) Not integrating implies that CCEDK doesnt trust BitShares enough to use it as a backend.
2) Not integrating is causing marketing efforts to be diluted.

Should I use CCEDK's DOGE or use OPENDOGE? Integrate them! Imagine the positive press that BitShares (and CCEDK) would get.

BTS has never ever been profitable
This is not a true statement.. you must be new around here.

You need to learn patience, it is a good skill to have in life. We can't build a billion dollar company without dilution to fund the development of our product. Ending dilution (and therefore development) this early in the game would be a death sentence to Bitshares. If you don't like it please sell your stake and let those that share the vision reap the rewards.

Caring so much is a good indication you have not diversified your cryptocurrency portfolio sufficiently. The only coin I own more than 6% of my portfolio in is Bitcoin.

Let me correct myself - BitShares hasnt been profitable ever since we started diluting.

We should stop diluting soon, i.e. give it 1 more year of development. How much longer can holders continue subsidizing?

BitShares is a platform with as many lives as there are business models to be built on it.

Whenever I see a down day, I always remember this:  Are we better off now than we were when we started in 2013?

A fundraising mechanism to pay BM's rent is not a business model. Business models require profit. Where are the profits?

BitShares is the reason I dont have any Bitcoin right now, so Im not sure Im better off than in late 2013.

I agree that share buyback can be a legitimate source of dividends, which is why Im holding on to my bts.

BUT (huge fat but)

BTS has never ever been profitable, and has no prospect of ever becoming so with the current dilution rates. Bytemaster seems to have given up on achieving profitability. All he says now is "real companies go through rounds of dilution to grow", etc. Therefore BitShares is so far not a profitable company, its just a fundraising scheme for BM & CNX to pay their rent. Thats fine, but it cant go on forever.

Give Me a Reason to Hold BTS - when are we going to stop dilution and become profitable?

I wonder if Ander still feels the same way as when this thread started.

General Discussion / Re: New Stealth Transfer Worker ($1000)

[member=40100]oldmine[/member]   I am having trouble understanding what your contribution is adding to the search for solutions as to how to fund new features..

What was wrong with my previous suggestion?
-You buy $45k of BTS off the market
-You get paid back by a worker proposal that pays you back over a few months

Result is that your added buy pressure helps fund CNX via their worker positions.

I don't like implementing a hard fork to change fee allocation to go to a specific account. It's not very decentralized. Perhaps a UIA-based solution is better.

Yep it sounds shit.

So because you cant track stealth transfer fees to referrers, you want to hardcode an individual to receive all stealth fees (albeit for a limited time)? What a horrible nasty hack. It reminds me of hardcoding AE to receive millions.

If he wants to pay for it then a better way is to make the worker proposal for $45K of BTS dependent on that generous individual buying $45k worth of BTS on the market. That is a way more elegant solution.

Every single time you hardcode your buddys' usernames into the BitShares source code, you make the whole project look more centralized.

Biggest obstacle: BTS still doesnt provide the same experience as a centralized exchange like Poloniex.

The gui doesnt look as polished as Polo, for example they make it really easy to see markets with the highest volume. They have a trollbox etc.

Are you going to be publishing a worker proposal for margin trading/lending soon?

General Discussion / Re: IRC/telegram as a trollbox?
« on: November 04, 2015, 07:39:16 pm »
Can one of the designers (Val?) let us know if a trollbox is planned / on the todo list?

A trollbox really does make an exchange look active and helps to build up a userbase.

Openledger / The URL bitshares.openledger.info just sucks.
« on: October 26, 2015, 12:12:37 pm »
As well as being far too long, if I paste that URL on reddit to try to share how great our exchange is, it will immediately get buried as altcoin spam.

Everyone still thinks that an exchange can only be provided by a private entity, so thats what they expect to use. Like it or not, BitShares has not yet established itself as an exchange - its just an altcoin to most people. Dont believe me check out the price.

That site is provided by CCEDK, so why didnt they promote the webwallet under their own name? trade.ccedk.com / wallet.ccedk.com would have been MUCH better.

After the bond market is released and people are asking on reddit "How do I short Bitcoin?", you think Im going to paste the URL bitshares.openledger.info ? No I will get buried to oblivion. I would however paste the url trade.ccedk.com

I hope that when Banx sets up their webwallet, they wont make the same amateurish mistakes.

Perceptions matter.

Technical Support / Re: What happened to BitNASDAQ, BitNYSE, etc?

Its pointless right now - we barely have enough liquidity to keep the BitUSD market alive.

I'm kind of shocked most of you people don't seem to understand what Bitshares actually is.  Even Bytemaster doesn't seem to acknowledge it.  Bitshares is a decentralized bucket shop (world first?).  You are not trading real stocks or assets.  You can't compare anything about it to real stock markets.  It's a gambling market where you're betting against the somewhat decentralized but non-autonomous house that operates price feeds.  You don't own real assets.  You're not investing in real assets.  All you're doing is gambling.

You think we dont know that already? BitShares is the best damn bucketshop around.

And whats wrong with a bucketshop anyway? The are only illegal because:
1) Authorities dont want money diverted from inflating the stock market
2) Wall street lobbying

It might be gambling, but its not against the House. Get your facts right its p2p.
