I propose we all forget about the "I think someone else better than me should do it", because at the end, nobody does anything but wait and hope someone else will do it for them.

if you think you can't do a thing, then let's focus on which thing we could do our self and in the short-medium timeframe

Great idea.

You can start by retiring this account.

We know what a "bagholder" is... it's someone left holding the bag, often "stuck" holding it.

It's ironic that you want to focus on short-medium time frames.  I suggest you choose a forum alias, without a negative connotation to it.  That would be an awesome start.

Random Discussion / Re: Fork of steem, "calibrae"
« on: October 18, 2017, 08:02:33 pm »
Here's what I told fuzzy and what played out: I couldn't build his project on steem and neither could the person I asked for help building it.

So I built him a team, which became, and he is currently advising that team. I am sure he will more than make back what he lost.

Loki and I aren't doing this for money. We're doing this because there are issues in steem and we loved the concept of steem and both got burned by the implementation of steem. It's about fun at this stage.

Will take whatever genuine help comes our way. People interested in a blog platform not built around a corporation, might be interested in what we are doing. Investors shouldn't be: the only way to "get in" will be to post or be a witness... Or buy tokens from posters or witnesses (so I guess investors might be, as things mature...).  This is all the "steem"; none of that icky stinc.

Ok, well I wish you the best of luck.  It's a big task...

faddat,  you are still around?

Your last post was 5 months ago on steemit.

Please tell us what you are up to, especially after you abandoned fuzzy's project and left him hanging. I am interested.

If your newest project makes money, is there anything in your schedule of things to refund him a portion of the funds you took for an uncompleted project? Curious?

Please don't take this as me being negative. I appreciate your ambition.  However, there is something that needs to be done to clean up what happened within the last year.

General Discussion / Re: will atomic swap make bitshares useless ?
« on: October 18, 2017, 05:32:06 am »
Are people kidding?

Bitshares "become useless"?

* Bitshares has history (that's not useless)

* Bitshares has proven performance (that's not useless)

* Bitshares network is solid and fixes itself quickly when there is an issue (that's not useless)

Bitshares becoming useless, to those, that run to the newest, greatest "seemingly" better thing?  Sure.

Bitshares network was built to last, and last it will.

I have no worry about Bitshares ever dying and becoming useless.  In 5 years from now, or even 10, Bitshares will still be here.  The only thing that may happen is more inter-operability between blockchains with further development or more new gateways.  (which is good)

Why would everyone completely abandon this good technology, when it has proven its stability?

What a weird question.

The tech is interesting but I personally don't have much faith in the Larimer's business acumen.

Yeah, it's not like Bitshares is #9 on coinmarketcap, nor is STEEM at #16... 

I'd say that is quite an accomplishment.  If you feel you can lead a devel team with "better business acumen", I highly suggest you do it. 

Perhaps I don't have much faith in [member=1727]Yoshi[/member]'s business acumen.  Why don't you really re-evaluate yourself instead of spreading unnecessary concerns about the Larimers.  They're not in charge of how intelligent a market is to respond to good technology. Any idiot with funds can misdirect them to any of those hundreds of altcoins out there as they see fit... that's why traction is slow. So I wish people would stop stoning the Larimers in public.  It's really starting to get annoying.

The Larimers have good business acumen.  It's the bulk of the cryptotraders out there in the wild that don't (but that's improving day by day, and so is the price of BTS and STEEM as a result).  Make sense now?

We can probably keep the fees for asset creation, but the psychological appeal of frictionless trading and transfers is incredible.

I assume you mean "frictionless trading" from a user perspective.

What about from a technical perspective?  If it costs me nothing to pound the blockchain with "frictionless trading"... and I'm a black hat (which I am not)... or owner of a botnet with 50,000 slave machines (which I am not)... Now you've just given competitors or blackhats an incentive to come here and use frictionless tactics to overload our blocks with nonsense.

The one thing that stops people from brute forcing garbage into the network is the fact that they'll have to pay BTS to do it.  If you make it free... it's a matter of time until you create a whole new problem that we don't currently have..

I don't care how fast graphene is.... if writing to the blockchain becomes free, you're in for a world of hurt.

Still gonna hold the ones in BTS wallet almost forever, but its amazing that they are profitable again.  I had totally given up.

Totally given up?  Sigh. You should apologize to yourself :)

Not me. I'm never giving up...  not for this much work done to date.

He complains about coins that are "forked" or "premined", but bitshares falls into that category. Let's not forget our bitshares history, folks!

We made up the term "sharedrop", but all it really is is a gentleman's premine.

No, it's not.  People complain that our chain isn't private enough.  Everytime a Bitshares user makes (or receives) a transaction, you can observe it.  This is a lot different than most coins where they just have a garbled hash for a wallet address.

Bitshares wallets are easily identifiable and thus, auditable when a sharedrop occurred.  There was no foul play with Bitshares.

However other coins, like the ones where the developer releases buggy code, the chain starts, and 90% of the people can't get it to run correctly allows the developer to get his hands on a sizeable number of coins fraudulently, and then release working code an hour or two later.  This has happened multiple times.  If I remember correctly Dash / Darkcoin started this way back in the early days if you can read the original Darkcoin launch threads that have not been edited.

You're right!

I made a post about it, and I want many people to realize it as possible:[member=43002]intelliguy[/member]/do-you-know-what-coinmarketcap-com-is-i-do-not-think-you-do-we-have-a-serious-problem

I'm tired of watching bad coins race to the top, and legitimate coins and assets fall...

We have an elephant in the room that most of us see. No one talks about it. We just seem to accept it.  I won't anymore.

A friend of mine ppcman on Peercoin has explained that a cancer problem is existing on which exists on why Bitshares is undervalued.

I feel the need to share it with all of you.  I won't repeat what he said... but this is the one instance where I feel comfortable sharing it:

QUOTE: "THERE IS AN UNSPOKEN PROBLEM IN THE CRYPTOCURRENCY INDUSTRY.  re: ( This is a serious cancer in the legitimacy of which coins are shown"

This is EXACTLY why Bitshares and Peercoin both suffer from being undervalued... It's a good read.

中文(Chinese) / 我的BTS和PPC预测2017年
« on: May 01, 2017, 09:21:11 am »
我认为今年的BTS和PPC都将翻番。 这是我的预测。 也许他们会增长到10倍以上!

每天新的第一次投资者来买。 2017年将呈现大增长,成为最好的一年!

Each witness is getting paid $1200+ because of the price rise.

They used to get 1.5 bts per block  but this was doubled this year because the bitshares price was so low.

Now the bitshares price has nearly tripled so has the witnesses pay and every witness is receiving $1200+ worth of BTS every month!

A long term fix would be if an agreed $ payment could be paid to them in BTS each month. But that idea deserves its own post.

I see absolutely no problem with this in the short term.

Being a witness, and hanging on when times are troublesome should be awarded a little extra when times get better.

I'm not a witness, but if I was one, that's exactly what I'd expect.

Let them profit a little heavy for awhile... they've waited a while to have their cake. Let them munch on it for a bit.

This is an awful subject line.


When you pick subject lines like: PLEASE HELP TO RESTORE BITSHARES, it makes it sound like BITSHARES is in trouble as a whole, and it's not.

Keep in mind, we're a headline based society. Most people read headlines and feel they know things.

In future we need to be extra careful about choosing forum subject lines that don't scare away people who glance at our forums, see something like this, and click off. Most website visitors (new ones) spend only 3 seconds on a site when they are surfing around the web looking for things...

When I buy BTS today,  I don't care what the price is tomorrow.

I buy BTS today, because of what I expect it to be worth in 6 months or a year. :)

Is the prediction market actually functional as a practical matter?

Is Bitshares actually a Dex for the crypto markets?

To my limited understanding those things are hard coded into the protocol.

Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

Prediction Market documentation:

Example of a prediction market:

What it looks like on Cryptofresh:

What specifically was your question about prediction markets? Seems the documentation, features, and actual use of them is occurring.


With regard to your second question:

This explains how the Dex works.

I think your question more pertains to, "so can I buy some Peercoins with BTS or DASH coins through the DEX"

The answer is "yes" if a gateway provider was to offer that service.

Try this exercise:

1. Open up your Bitshares Lite wallet
2. Login to your account
3. Click Deposit / Withdrawal
4. Notice all the BTC, Dash, Doge, Eth, LTC addresses?

There's gateways that offer you to come in/out of those coins already...

BLOCKTRADES, CCEDK, METAEXCHANGE, TRANSWISER are listed as gateway providers....

This is not a fault of the code, it's just that the industry hasn't realized what Bitshares is capable of..

(See, we need more marketing, promotion, and business use of the Bitshares DEX, that's probably why you're even asking these questions -- no one reads. Everyone seems to walk around with illusions that the software isn't ready to be used.  It is ready to be used... AND PEOPLE ARE USING IT!)

See this:

Dan even wrote about how the BTS Network could work with gateways back in Dec 2014

Somehow from Dec 2014 - April 2017, very few still understand it.  Instead everyone is waiting for Dan to build it.  He already did!

But these questions don't belong here.  This is suppose to be about the Bitshares price discussion, to discuss price.

If you want to know more about what the system is able to do, let's not tie it up in the price discussion thread.
