Stakeholder Proposals / Re: Proposal: Lower "Vesting balance create" fees
« on: January 04, 2018, 05:24:22 am »
Indeed, pegging fees to BitUSD would be ideal, but I suspect a real bitch to implement without screwing our performance.

Even if that isn't true, it affects such a huge part the core it would cost a lot to implement and test.

Could it be cheaper and easier just to schedule a monthly fee adjustment by committee?
Like, every month at a certain day the committee adjusts the fee according to the current price of BTS. As this will become a "part of the job", every member will have to engage in discussion and voting. And because the adjustment date is known beforehand, all the discussions would take place in the days leading up to it with arriving to final decision at the day of the adjustment

Guys, he just announced that they are going to do something nice for the ecosystem (or at least try) and they don't even ask for money. Why so much skepticism? It's not like they are scamming money out of the platform - let them do their thing

It seems you need to upload the picture to some image-sharing service and post a link here

At least post a screenshot or something.

General Discussion / Re: Evander Holyfield | AriseBank | Bitshares

There is no censorship, nobody told you that you couldn't be skeptical about Arise. The message on reddit is directed onto a few attempts to "prove" that Arise is a scam that have been posted there.

Regarding the endorsement - Holyfield partners with bitshares to raise money for some humanitarian fund, Stan wrote about it on steemit and talked about it on bluerocktalk radio show. The official announcement is going to be later this month. I don't know if this partnership has anything to do with Arise. Maybe it is, maybe not.

I agree, I don't think they are stealing my money or anything. However, I've probably used 10+ exchanges (including yobit ugh) and I've never had a single deposit/withdraw issue. Now the very first deposit i make here messes up, It doesn't speak well for the design of it.

You are probably one extremely lucky individual. Ten exchanges without problems is actually quite an achievement. I tried, like, three and had issues with two of them.
Don't draw conclusions, open a ticket and wait. They have a ton of users and a volume of $2M, the fact that ONLY a handful of people post their problems here says that they (OL) are actually pretty good at what they do

Stakeholder Proposals / Re: fee reduction for P2P transactions.
« on: January 01, 2018, 07:51:25 am »

hi Ravid

the 2 cent per transaction is ok, but the fees that are for basic transfer are  .21 bts which is   10 cents.   10 cents on a 1 dls transaction is 10%. 
when you say the fees are the same for everyone, I am confused,  as I made a p2p and got .21bts  fee. 

the question is: how do I get the 2 cent fee without being the lifetime member???

and my company is trying to bring volume and make my clients buy a lot of bitshares as collateral for the pegged asset, and i think that is good for the bitshares community.

As pc have told you before, the current fee is high due to the surge of BTS price. When the current rate was set, the BTS price was around $0.15 I think, now it is at $0.7.
 It doesn't have anything to do with the LTM, you need not worry. The current fee needs to be adjusted to accomodate the current price, that's all. I think it's the comittee's job to do that and pc have tagged a few of them (fav, xeroc, abit and bitcrab) to take care of that.
 As I said, the transaction fees are the means for survival for the bitshares network and they are the same for everyone, so I don't think that you could create a single asset that would override the fee logic.

 What you are trying to do is great and we welcome your business on our platform, especially when you are trying to help real people in the real world.

Just wait for the fee rate adjustment by the comittee and you'll get the 2 cent fee!

As far as I know, the fees are the same for everyone, LTMs are just getting 80% of them back as a bonus.

The fees are needed to refill the development fund for the platform - Bitshares is a DAC, no one is financing it, so it needs to be self sustainable. So people using it for free kind of beats the purpose.

I figure that if you think that using the platform for free will get your clients to use other services and generate revenue for you, you as a company could pay their transaction fees for them.

It is NOT a "go screw yourself" answer, don't take it the wrong way. It's just for Bitshares those fees are the means for survival and for a regular person 2 cents per transaction is a minor inconvenience.

Try steemit before the memos. You could also try to tag them here with the  "@" symbol before the username, they'll get a message that they've been mentioned on the forum

Account name: egor-ravid

Have you tried sending them something through the bts wallet?  You can include a memo.

I have tried that already. Im worried that this account is stagnant and that it is not in use, and that I won't get a reply. There must be something that can be done about this.

It looks like there is no activity in that account except for your transaction a month ago and another one an hour ago (10 bts transferred to spectrum). The account might very well be of someone that opened and forgot about it.

As it is generally in all crypto there is nothing you can do except reaching out to the account owner. This is not ethereum where the devs bail out their friends whenever they feel like it.

Have you tried posting on steemit? The guy might hang out there.

Edit: Master detective work here: it says that the account's referrer is comittee-account and the registrar is temp-account. Now, I have no Idea what it means but I suspect that it might be a test account that was opened by one of the comittee members. I might be (and probably am) wrong about it but you could try reaching out to them. They are busy folks so it's possible they didn't see this thread

[member=23]bitcrab[/member], it would be amazing if you could also provide some insight on what is happening on the Free Trade Zone's side (e.g. how do they plan to implement it, will they recognize it as a real currency, how much time they think it'll take etc.) if you know anything. I find this whole thing really fascinating

Seriously, no one knows?
[member=120]xeroc[/member] [member=94]pc[/member] [member=18687]abit[/member] [member=23]bitcrab[/member]  guys, I'm trying to start a business here and bring more people to the platform
To get your new gateway you need to create your smart coin and ask witnesses or people you select (trustworthy) to feed the prices. Then you need to have a developer modify the GUI ( to fit your business needs. The bottom line here is that you need to have someone knowledgeable write the code for your gateway, there is no "out the box" solution for it. All our gateways are custom written by the owner companies (OL, Blocktrades, Rudex etc.). And you can  add your language here:

Good luck with the Gateway and your new business.

Thank you very much!

Okay, so I show my dev the desktop wallet and tell him to make me a website that roughly looks like that. There I can add whatever language I want. What programming language should he know in order to be able to feed everything from the blockchain? C? Java? Maybe I should just go to the OL guys and buy it from them...

Regarding the smartcoin - can a smartasset be made in the way that does not allow borrowing? I don't want people to make a ton of money from trading and then come to me claiming money I don't have. I guess I need someone to walk me through the differences between UIAs and smartcoins and find the most suitable one.

Anyone knows the answer to question number 2?

Additional question: how can I add another language to the wallet? Can one of the devs send me a text file with all the wording in english and I'll translate it, send it back and it'll get added in the next update?

Pegging is trivial in this case: 1 shekel UIA equals to 1 shekel, because it is backed by 1 shekel in bank account, but you will need to make market for your UIA on DEX to make it useful and this requires additional reserves.

How in the world do you know it's shekel? And stop telling everyone, I don't want people stealing my ideas! lol
For the additional resources it looks like I'll have to find an investor, do you have an approximate idea how much resources it usually takes?

I am looking at the UIA creation page in the wallet right now and the fee is 97,117 bts, at current rate it's $43702.65. Why is it so high? How am I supposed to work with that?
