... the tendency of speculators to move in and out of a coin between Big Events, is a powerful driver for including vesting in the sharedrop engineering toolbox.

The same reason we put capacitors in a power supply - to smooth out the ripples in the voltage.


Haha, you can use the term speculate/speculators when you find something you do not like about THE Market. But BM knows well enough what follows when you try to put 'capacitors' on the market... So, Good luck with that.

While thinking about "vesting, 'capacitors' on the market" and stuff like that I think I found a lead you can use. It is already tried and seems to work quite well .

Play!   Play is the forth runner of the vesting-sharedrops breakthrough (Well FreeTrades' gaming-mining coin is, but as it went bust pretty quickly,  so lets pretend it never happened)!. They are doing (it) quite well. They also have a very very respectable market cap!
How they do it?
Simple - they list its shares only on a single tiny exchange they control (no messing around with their share price there)! As a result their market cap is somewhat huge...no worries about not been able to find them on coinmarketcap or anyplace else.

 So, tiny, close to the vest controlled trading should easily guarantee a very respectable market cap, as well as a company that  no one is aware off.

Great approach, don't you think ? Combine that with a heavy slooooow vesting and I think you have a true winner!

You forgot perhaps the most important ingredient in the play secret sauce. 

Don't communicate with anyone.  Don't respond to any questions on your forum.  Ignore those wishing to partner with you.

I just caught up with everyone who posted here through thursday.  I will be sending out brownie pts weekly after the mumble sessions in batches.   We are getting more organized now.

I apologize for everyone I missed previously.   Thanks!

i posted for nearly a month and no brownie.pts so far

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,17354.msg228595.html#msg228595

this is the reason why i ask for a list, so it would be easier to keept the record.

Sorry we missed you!    Brownies sent.

The BitShares French ConneXion has been quite busy those last 3 month !!!

In the beginning of our project, we were using the most simple form of website (a web builder/hoster without any need of HTML/CSS coding knowledge) as we were busy translating BitShares 101.

We encountered a lot of problems ; the site was loading very … VERY slowly, we couldn’t have any decent forum in it, any modifications had to be available in the pre-built templates because any other change was just not possible and you could not even implement a little script in PHP.

We soon realised that in order to pursue our main goal, being the link, the connexion between french speaking persons and this community, we had to do it better, we needed something able to evolve through time (something capable of growing in parallel with the growth of BTS), something stronger, faster: we needed BitShares French ConneXion 2.0 … ;p


In early june ... around the 8th ;p, we felt it was the right time to react ! One of our member started learning HTML, CSS and some notions of PHP in order to build a completely new web site. Not saying that this is no easy thing doing it from scratch and even more on your spare time.

The rest of us translated all the available information at bitshares.org. all the detailed elements of the BitShares 2.0 but also the news from the blog section. 

We also have a fresh new forum on the web site. You may notice some familiarities with this one ;) Our goal is absolutely not to divide the main community with some french people here and there. On the contrary, we want to provide a welcoming place for the part of the french community who feels more comfortable with french information and communication. And we want as many people as we can get to be part of this revolution.



We provide all the main  documentation up-to-date in french :

101 BitShares
The Flyer
The trifold
The infographic
BTS 2.0 Features

We created severals articles to introduce Cryptocurrencies and BitShares for newbies.

We finished it all a couple of days ago and we are online since yesterday but we won’t do too much noise until BitShares 2.0 will be released as we don’t want to complicate a newcomer’s experience with a soon to be obsolete 0.9 version. We are now completely ready to grow a big and healthy french community around BitShares 2.0 as soon as it get live.

We made the official announcement in the French section :

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,18393.0.html

Here you will find the same one in English :

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,18392.0.html

We also posted this here because … well …  it has been a lot of work to achieve it and we thought that … maybe … in a perfect world … in his infinite kindness, BM may think that this is worth some Brownies ...



Feel free to visit us, any feedback will be very much appreciated !

I see potential for a significant number of people in the BitShares community to become upset in the future, and further potential for this to harm the progress of BitShares a little if people feel too upset.

The problem:
  • This thread is now 'hidden' well away from the limelight (BitShares Forum » BitShares » Trading & Speculation » User Issued Assets (UIA) » Re: Announcing Brownie Points (BROWNIE.PTS) )
  • There may be people who are not yet aware of brownies who would be 'eligible' (e.g. did a lot of work but weren't around when this thread was prominent). Have brownies been announced sufficiently on other language boards?
  • People may say, "The brownie club was set up and hidden before I knew about it, and now a few people have too much money/ power/ control with x, y, z...".

Possible solutions:
  • Put a sticky somewhere more prominent with a link to this thread
  • Send a P.M. to all forum members
  • Anything else to raise awareness       edit: more accurately, to ensure that there persists some relatively prominent avenue to enable discovery

Of course brownies have proved a bit controversial so people will argue that they have no automatic right to a prominent place in the forum.
You could say that bytemaster obviously has some plans for their use which will benefit  those who've played a role in growing BitShares. Therefore it's in the interest of people on this forum to be made more aware of brownies...

What's the best balance here, i.e. where should brownies fit in with BitShares and in particular this forum?

I think a locked sticky with a link to this thread would be best.

I created a thread to get everyone posting about the blockchain so that people find their way to bitshares more likely in a google search and also to help newbies understand that blockchain doesn't mean bitcoin.

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,18482.0.html

I gave away 20 brownies for every post.

I also did similar with the TOP 3 reasons to BUY BTS.. but I gave away 30 for each of those (10 per reason).

I lost track really but I have given away over 1000 of my brownies to help the positive growth of bitshares here.

Can see that thread here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,18213.0.html

I mentioned this previously but never got anything for it.

Also still never saw any initial deposit from the start of the thread being a hero member and everything else yada yada when brownies first started... if I got that initial balance I might not have to note every little thing I am doing to keep my balance floating to keep helping bitshares grow. :)

Chiming in to get some Hugs!

Since my last update on August 22,  I've edited the past 4 weeks of BitShares DEV Hangouts. I hope everyone is enjoying them  :D

If this is Brownie worthy... I've also edited the Rune Hangout for Maker. This was a 2 part hangout that turned out to be an editing marathon LOL, but none the less I think it turned out well.

Average time spent...

BTS Hangouts = roughly 25hrs (4 hangouts)
Maker Hangout = roughly 10hrs (2 hangouts)

Thanks BM  :D
