Will this be a website, app or a BTS UI dev proposal?

General Discussion / Re: Global Settlement for BitUSD
« on: November 25, 2018, 01:07:47 am »
If anyone's interested in another USD pegged bitasset, you could check out Hertz https://bitsharescan.com/asset/HERTZ It's got approx 12 feeds, several fully surrendered permissions (more trustless), no market fees, a 14% amplitude oscillation applied to the feed price over 28 days & borrowing is possible (whereas it's not for bitUSD until the price increases?). https://crypto.fans/hertz

Anyone focusing on other bitassets instead? bitCNY probably? Can't borrow HERO neither I don't think..

Would anyone be interested in a BTS pegged bitasset with an applied oscillation (without external volatility)?

Can I use payger's woocommerce plugin with any BTS DEX asset? It'd be great if I could use either/or OPEN.GRC & RUDEX.GRC to buy goods online, since GRC doesn't currently have any payment processor support at the moment.

General Discussion / Re: Bitshares URL schema [ PROPOSAL ]
« on: November 22, 2018, 09:13:23 pm »
Great idea! We used to have this functionality in btsx (see forum bts:username links), its introduction to BTS2.0 is a welcome one, keep up the great work! 👍

I'm really liking bitsharescan, I'd like to request the following functionality if possible:

* Tracking worker proposals
* Redirect invalid case sensitivity 404 pages to correct upper case parameters (editing the url directly & using bts instead of BTS gets an error)
* Tracking elected witnesses & committee members

Keep up the great work

General Discussion / Re: Where is the leadership ?

These assets you refer to are the responsibility of the committee, given that they have asset ownership rights over these assets.

I feel like we need a larger committee than 11, we've got 27 witnesses so why is 11 ok? I'd hope that a larger committee size would lead to greater community involvement.

In terms of Bitshares leadership, this is a DEX not a CEX, you need to take action yourself to engage with elected Bitshares roles and active workers.

General Discussion / Re: suggest to disable forcesettlement for bitCNY

tomorrow the poll will be closed, please vote to express your opinion.
Create a worker proposal based poll, not an easily manipulated forum poll - I had to re-cast my vote for some reason and there's a new poll option now.. not ideal. 20% is way too much for force settlement offset 👎

83
Would it not be better to get BTS added to these CEX instead of a single bitasset?

You are turning a free market into a centrally planned economy

what you called free market is a forrest where beasts can kill and eat people.

Then don't wander off into the forest if you're not prepared to face beasts? You could always stick to trading UIA or perhaps experiment with non-external-referenced bitassets if you're wary of the risk associated with shorting bitassets.

We have the choice, If use the highest price as the last feed price, we can keep the forcesettlement and the dynamically feed price.

Couldn't an external actor target this sole 'highest price' to force an inflation of the feed price to attack collateral holders?

No way. I'd far rather see a global settlement take place than for force settlement to be disabled. If I'm unable to claim the backing collateral directly, then there might as well be no backing collateral (fiat's worst practice).

I'd far rather see these permissions/flags entirely surrendered preventing any such proposal. Funnily enough though, I'm unable to do so within the UI at this time: https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-ui/issues/2043

General Discussion / Re: Suggestions for making the bts system sound
« on: November 02, 2018, 03:10:32 pm »
Bts system can only be short after the feed price reform

You can do more and short before you reform.

Now that bitcny is stable, why not make a way to do more?
My method is to add the borrowing function to bitcny to bitcny lender interest.
The bitcny mortgaged by bts should be loaned according to the interest of the day like zb
The mortgage function of bts is the role of the printing machine rather than the interest-free loan.

This could be easily achieved by creating a bitasset which uses bitCNY as its backing collateral, then apply a x% increase against the reference price feed every year continuously, think HERO except backed by bitCNY instead of BTS. No need for any changes to the BTS DEX.

What % price feed appreciation per year were you thinking?

87
RE: P2P lending, if you were to create a smartcoin backed by [BTS|bitAsset] with an internal [BTS|bitasset] price reference then apply a sine wave oscillation to the price feed, then both the shorter and holder would have confidence in the limited volatility range associated with the debt and global settlement risk would be disassociated from external price movements, allowing both parties to focus solely on the terms of oscillation.

88
Can we add "lobby/convince CEX to enable borrowing bitasset with BTS via CEX" as a secondary bounty objective? It would help return BTS to the DEX, increase BTS buy pressure on affected CEX & solve CEX bitasset supply issues.

General Discussion / Re: New mechanism to handle bad debt (black swan)
« on: October 22, 2018, 06:17:42 pm »
Operating a fractional reserve is not what bitUSD was meant to do, so during this temporary bad debt sell-off they aught to be labelled as fractional reservists or bad debt holders.

Bad gamblers don't deserve much sympathy, they aught to be highlighted as irresponsible parties on the DEX whom you should be cautious to interact with (not as bad as warning not at all to interact with, like known scammer labeling). Fair enough it shouldn't disqualify them from WP/Witness/Committee but their negative actions have direct negative consequences on the bitasset/BTS holders (potentially damaging the reputation of the BTS DEX) & that's something people will probably take into account when voting.

What do you think about preventing bad debt holders from borrowing new bitasset (same asset) until they re-collateralize their old position?
Anything within the established rule IS legit.

If a community is not inclusive enough it can't grow big. From this perspective, I don't think your suggestion is good for the community.

You have the right to propose changes anyway.
Which suggestions? All of them? Please be more specific.

I wasn't arguing about the legitimacy of your proposal, rather that the current design does not advertise allowing users to operate fractional reserves to the potential detriment of the bitasset holder, however under such circumstances such accounts aught to be labelled as 'bad debt holder(s)' until the bad debt position is resolved.

In real life, if you default on a large bank loan there are serious financial and credit rating implications (for the rest of your life) regardless of your inability to pay it back; you wouldn't get the same interest-rates, size of loan nor collateral requirements in the future. If I'm not mistaken, your current proposal effectively lets defaulters entirely off the hook compared to the current situation where a single defaulter takes every debt holder down with them as a weird form of collective debt holder punishment?

Fractional reserves are far worse than being temporarily labelled as a bad debt holder and receiving economic consequences (loss of LTM idea) until the bad debt position is closed, IMO.

Stakeholder Proposals / Re: Requesting price feeds for the Hertz ABA
« on: October 22, 2018, 10:46:08 am »
Some recent updates regarding Hertz!

Zapata42 has been added as a price feed publisher, he completed bounty work implementing hertz and hero support within the btsprice price feed script and has recently become an active witness. I met him in person at the Bitfest event in Amsterdam, had a good chat and he requested permission to publish price feeds, looking forwards to his high quality feeds in the future. I believe that Zapata42 has also added support for Hertz in his price feed tracking webpage which is great!

I've removed wackou since he hadn't published in 42 days, I'm pretty sure he has taken a break from crypto, but if he is interested in publishing price feeds again in the future there's always room for him!

The Hertz whitepaper was updated: https://steemit.com/hertz/@cm-steem/updated-hertz-aba-whitepaper-check-it-out Check it out if you've not read it yet, it'll help explain the purpose behind Hertz, the effects each phase may have on market behaviour & it introduces new bitasset collateral terminology.

We're going through our 8th successful oscillation now, it's pretty cool to see the price feed oscillation working as expected: https://crypto.fans/hertz/ (Note that the skips in the graph were logging issues on the website, not hz downtime).

Further, the following permissions have been permanently disabled to improve the trustworthiness of Hz on the BTS DEX:
* Disable force settling
* Allow issuer to force a global settling
* Committee fed price feeds  (Will never be used)

The only flags which remain (yet are unused) are:
* Enable market fee (In case we want to explore incentivizing buying the peak & shorting the trough)
* Witness fed price feeds (In case we want to set this then burn owner permissions)
* Allow issuer to force a global settling (Can't seem to disable? Raised an issue!)
