General Discussion / Re: [vote] Upgrade Forum Software
« on: January 14, 2017, 09:42:43 pm »
Following the discussions in the last mumbles and the old threads by Bitsapphire I created a short summary of potential software we could use.

The idea is to streamline communication and improve the exchange between the different communities around the world. One of the goals was the to find a translation plugin, that will help us to talk better with the Chinese community. Further upgrading the forum software will send a strong signal that BitShares is active and improving.

What is wrong with the current forum?
Since Bitshapphire is not active anymore in the BitShares Community anymore, it would be better to have an active community member hosting the forum and be in charge of the maintenance. The goal is so to keep the forum 99% online.

Who could host it?
An active member of the BitShares community, let us discuss who could be suitable.

What are the current hosting costs?
50-60 Euro per month according to Bitsapphire

What happens with the current posts, ranks, and the old forum?
I found this guide for Discourse How to import Simple Machine to Discourse
We can probably import everything to the new forum and put the old posts in an archive.

Why now?
If not now, then never.

The two forums that would suit us the best:

1. Discourse http://www.discourse.org/
Demo: https://meta.discourse.org/

Plug-ins:

Very cool, Discourse also has a google translate plugin, which could help us to talk better with China.

2. NodeBB https://nodebb.org/
Demo: http://forum.expii.com/

Plug-ins:

3. Simple Machines Forum (currently used) www.simplemachines.org



Happy voting and a good discussion!

ps.: My favorite is discourse

Seem to have missed phpbb forums i added. Can we please add it? It is not the prettiest forum bit has the most tools for community growth and development out of all of them.

I also have been in contact with taulant. He said he has received many requests to be the new owner of the forums, but he and the team decided they would prefer to give to me (I never asked him to own the forums, instead approaching him for the community at large, which is probably why).  After rceiving the forum from taulant I stated out loud to you chris that I am not comfortable with any one entity (no matter how much I personally trust them) to have ownership. Please dont forget this as we move forward.

The reason is actually simple. I also believe this is why taulant and team decided this route. I am interested in opening community discussion about this further when im ready in the coming days. For now please co sider talking amongst yourselves about the best way to give OWNERSHIP to bitshares community as a whole.

(P.S. I trust you to run them personally)
Fuzzy, when you speak of Ownership, do you refer to the ownership of the domain bitsharestalk.org? If not what else?

Stakeholder Proposals / Re: [Worker Proposal] New BitShares Core Dev
« on: January 12, 2017, 04:31:54 pm »
This is really great!! Thanks a lot for the initiative! I will update my proxy to whoever votes for this if necessary.

Feedback / questions:
1) Is there public information about Alfredo Garcia available besides his name? LInkedin, github etc?
2) I can not finally judge this as I am not a developer but did you think about a third party code reviewer such as Cryptonomex or Bunkerchainlabs? Or does Bitshares Munich hire one anyway? If so it would be nice if the results of these reviews and who did the review would be public as well. In the end such a review is effective if the reviewer has a reputation (to loose).

 

1) No. Have faith in me and my team, I hope my track record speaks for itself at this point. I only work with the brightest minds in the world.
2) We have auditors on staff, and I always encourage the public to audit our code as well on my github repos. I totally agree with you about reviews too and welcome them here.

I am all for this but why is there NO information about the dev? Not even a github acc?

EDit: It should be public anyway already since if he worked on "BlockPay, Smartcoins Wallet, C-IPFS, Stealth, Echo, Bridges and Gateways" as stated in the OP this activity should be on the respective github repos of the above projects?

Something GChicken said on another thread today:


I honestly see Bitshares as a combination of killer features (scale-ability, speed, governance, flexibility, MPAs(Market Pegged Assets), UIAs(User Issued Assets), Stable-coins, prediction markets) in a world where its competitors individually can only compete on one or two items. But the rest of the world doesn't share my opinion through lack of visibility, education and maybe a marketing issue. i know personally when i get someone to actually try the platform they are blown away, this is not your run of the mill cloned bitcoin wallet; they maybe a little set back at first as it can be a lot to take in, but in general the recognise the functionality and point of differance.


Do y'all  think Bitshares might benefit from a little brand segregation? Nothing about the project needs to fundamentally change and I am not suggesting that we rebrand the core project, but would we make more headway if niche features were represented as new and novel on a new website with a new brand? Obviously it would take a team to implement, but I am thinking a bitshares version of Augur. Augur is built on ethereum, but maintains its own identity. The Bitshares prediction market is built into Bitshares we just need a unique name and a site dedicated just to it, kinda like Openledger does for the exchange aspects. I understand OL has an interface with the prediction market, but let's be honest...  This way we can be clear and focused in our promotion of the platform. Go here for a DEX and here for a decentralized prediction market kinda thing.

Also at the moment the prediction market allows the market creator to decide who wins, may I respectfully say I like Augur's solution much more... we kinda need to address that.
A great opportunity for a keen entrepreneur to jump on  :)
The projects are opensource and very free. If you see an opportunity, go for it. The space is still very new so there are many opportunities. It wont be like that forever.
The question is just whether there is a way to do this legally. As far as I know, but I don't know much, operating PMs for US customers is illegal. Does anyone know more about this, particularly about the legality outside the US.

Were AGS keys used to allocate BitShares only?  Could AGS donors claim anything other than BitShares?

PEERPLAYS (to be released)

Egad, Brain, do you know something I don't know?  (Other than what I know you know that I don't know?)

AGS would apply to Peerplays only if you have already claimed BTS with them in BitShares 0.9.3c and then imported those into BitShares 2.0 prior to the Peerplays snapshot, no?
Thats true .. you need to have them claimed in an account
until when do I have to claim all my BTS so get the maximum amount of peerplays from my up to now partially unclaimed BTS (haven't yet claimed all from the merger...)?

We make a benchmark of all dex avalable. Only bitshares works enough good but still there is no platform  good enough. We will maintain minimun services till any dex arise good. We were about to try omni but team detected huge failures (including wallet stealing, log problems...). So for now BTS in openledger is the only good option. - but still not good enough as platform visual markets- If there were a way to connect it to ninjatrader our public will grow exponentialy.
This has been mentioned so often as an idea and it makes sense to have a very widely known UI for Bitshares. Would that be that difficult? Is there an easy way to plug Bitshares into an already existing UI light ninjatrader or would that have to be coded more or less from scartch? [member=11456]svk[/member]

How about starting small and fixing the block explorer.  It hasn't displayed the correct value for BTS for months...  If something as simple as this can't be maintained, how is BTS ever going to be able to handle a larger and more complex project?
Also https://cryptofresh.com/charts is loading very slowly.
And the reduction in trading volume could be due to OL uptime problems -> Solution https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,23287.0.html ?

I don't understand how this is a "trading discussion" and no one is mentioning that BTS just reversed the downward trading channel.

Because its hard to care abut BTS when literally every other crypto in the universe has outperformed it over the past 18 months.  BTS doesnt go up.  Everything else has some huge pumps sometimes, even total shitcoins.

The speculative money that is going to be made in the BTS ecosystem is going to be by the companies using the UIA system, not BTS.  BTS has no plan on ever making money.

In case you were implying that companies and individuals create UIAs and have them traded, don't you forget then that the only viable way to do that is to have ONE token which all these UIAs trade against. That token should not be an UIO/UIA itself in order to reduce the risk that the issuer defaults on it. The only candidates I can think of are BTS and BitUSD (of BitCNY for Chinese market UIAs).... which creates demand for BTS....

This is where most of the demand for XRP (Ripple) comes from, respectively where the speculative value of XRP lies... that is not mainly with the fees that are paid in XRP.

There is no hint that this worker (https://cryptofresh.com/u/dev.bitsharesblocks) is operted by you (svk) here:  https://cryptofresh.com/workers

Isn't it possible to put a link into the worker proposal as it is seen on cryptofresh that makes clear who the worker is operated by and what the purpose is?
