thanks guys!

Anyone looking to have our vote for witness will need to provide a public IP:PORT for a seed node and join #witnesses in

sorry if I'm late to the party, but how do I get an invite to the slack channel?

btw, I just saw that you have set those parameters:

Code: [Select]
MCR: 136%
MSSR: 106.9%

I assume that's on purpose, do you want all feed publishers to use the same parameters?

wanted to let you know that I will update my bts_tools to publish this feed, and will publish it as soon as I have it ready.

Always excited with these new "smart" coins/assets, I think it really shows the strength of the BitShares platform and how it can behave as a "decentralized polymorphic digital asset exchange" :)

 +5% thank you for all you've done and all you keep doing! You're an invaluable asset for this community, and it definitely feels right that you're paid by the blockchain to enhance it  :D

Delegates please update feeds for Hang Seng, Nikkei, Nasdaq, Shanghai and Shenzhen indexes.

ATTENTION DELEGATES! update pytools for trading INDEXES
58 delegates - New update - INDEXES of Hang Seng, Shenzhen Composite, and Nikke

[member=120]xeroc[/member]  can you add these indexes to your feed script (when you get the time).

BitShares shareholders are missing trading opportunities as these markets are volatile at the minute.

I have currently also deactivated the feed publishing for these markets in my bts_tools. In bts 0.9, the base currency was always BTS so the markets were SHANGHAI/BTS, NASDAQ/BTS, etc...

However, now that graphene is here, we should first decide whether we want to keep those markets, or whether we want to move them to SHANGHAI/CNY, NASDAQ/USD, etc. which seem more natural, but IANAT (I am not a trader ;) ) so I'd like first to have a consensus from the community on this issue before reactivating them.

+5% good to see things starting to decentralized!
Have you considered putting up a worker or some other means to monetize your efforts?

The initial idea was to partner with Thom to implement the "old" backbone proposal (,13837.msg230185.html#msg230185), but this has been put on hold for a while until I complete the port to graphene. It is mostly finished, but in the meantime I had some ideas to refactor a bit the code, and I'd really like something really stable before implementing any new features, in order to know I can safely rely on the foundations. I estimate this might take another month or two.

I also thought about putting a worker proposal just to work on the tools, but the last few months have been really demanding in real life, and it's kinda hard to plan ahead as I have little free time. Given that I'm not sure to be able to put in the time required to follow the plan outlined in a worker proposal, I think I'm going to skip it for now and work when I can, without pressure or accountability (it's a pastime then, not a job :) ). I might (and probably will) reconsider it in the future, but I guess this will come after the backbone project. I do have lots of ideas, though ;D

Hopefully this will eliminate the divide by zero errors I've been seeing with feed publishing.

You might get it once when you start the bts_tools, but once it's been running for a bit you shouldn't see those anymore, unless both yunbi and btc38 go down for an extended period of time. I've been running it myself for 2 days without issues.

I have updated the bts_tools package to now also publish feed price for TCNY with an MSSR of 100.1%. My witness 'wackou' is already publishing it (see

Here is the annoucement of the update:,19537.msg267686.html#msg267686

If you're using the bts_tools, then please also update to 0.3.4, it has important stability fixes for feeds fetching/publishing, plus it now also publishes a feed for TCNY.


0.3.4 has a few fixes, is more robust when checking feeds on the chinese exchanges (btc38, yunbi), publishes the "correct" price for BTS/CNY and also publishes feed price for the TCNY asset with correct parameters.

Code: [Select]
0.3.4 (2015-12-21)

* added support for publishing TCNY feed; generally more robust feeds fetching/publishing
* renamed 'bts2' commandline tool to 'bts'. 'bts2' still working for convenience, old 'bts' is still available as 'bts1'.
* change in the config.yaml format:
