I think the blog post regarding what's coming with 2.0 is a good text to send everybody. It tells what new is included (confidential & stealth transactions) and what is postponed (bond market) and what works but is still under development (tx processing speed). It would be good to let everybody know what is expected when launch happens so they don't have to complain about "tx speed isn't what was promised, devs lied to us!" etc.

So confidential/stealth transactions made it to the initial version?

I weep tears of joy !!! And privacy.
On blockchain level ... maybe not yet in the GUI

No problem, I am no stranger to the command line. Great to know the support is baked in the protocol :)

karnal - I am not so sure what on 'blockchain level' means when used by xeroc. I will not be  assuming it means you can access any meaningful command through the CLI . When BM uses "it is supported on blockchain level" it means:
Blockchain interpretor after receiving/reading such transaction: "What the hell is this? Am I supposed  to do something and what? Hmm... I do not see anything violating any rules, so will just collect the fee and do nothing"

xeroc - do you have any actual knowledge, or are you  basing it on the fact it was not mentioned as something that will not be implemented from the very begining, like the bond market?

Read the blog post that I linked:
Quote
Currently the web wallet does not support generating or receiving confidential transactions, but the command line wallet has full support for them. More details on how to use confidential/stealth transfers will be made available in the weeks ahead.
Thanks.
 :-[ Blinder on my part - BM said he will pretty much repeat the blogpost during mumble, so I confess I did not read the post itself!
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

@tonyk I have definitely seen CLI calls that relate to blinded transactions .. not sure about titan ..

Anyway .. blockchain support means that all that is nees is already there and making it accesible does not require a hardfork of the blockchain .. kust some "exposing the right features to the customer/GUI" ..

Guys, the last blog entry on BTS2.0, bitshares.org/blog, reads half cooked and appears unfinished. Could someone please add to it and explain things more broad and clear? Right now only insiders may understand the topics and issues, etc, discussed. The announcement should be crystal clear and professional, not some irc like summary. Thx

QUOTE FROM THE WEBSITE
Launch Plans
We will be taking the snapshot on a Tuesday so we have time to prepare on Monday and support it through the rest of the week. The actual snapshot time will be the last block prior to 9:00:00AM EST. BTS 2.0 chain will then launch no later than 4PM EST.
UNQOTE

What do you mean on "a Tuesday". Do you mean on Tuesday the 13th Oct or on a Tuesday up to the 13th Oct?

I think it's a typo.

I also think it is a typo but this needs to be fixed asap.

1. It is not professional

2. It might end up in some speculation trading. People withdraw their BTS from exchanges every Monday and resume trading in exchanges every Wednesday and the result is some crazy volatility for no reason

I may be in the minority here but I don't really see a problem with the quoted text.  Snapshot date has been announced as October 13th.  That is a Tuesday.  So the snapshot will be on a Tuesday.  If that was the only sentence in the announcement I could see how it would be confusing.  I don't think the full date needs to be in every sentence.

I agree. I sure hope Bts marketing improves with the referral system! It has been painful thus far, and this announcement does not sound as exciting as it should (to the average reader).

It's not a typo imo and it's also quite clear what it means: it's just stating that the snapshot day is a Tuesday, which means there's 3 whole days left of the work week to offer support. In other words: it's not happening on Friday evening with no support until Monday!

Correct.   And while we might be willing to work that weekend we aren't going to do that to our partners and exchanges...

The queen may be the most powerful piece on the chessboard, but it can't do everything.

All the other pieces need to do their parts.

Con gratz! It is good to see some faces after the dev team who spend so much time and effort into the project! Thanks. Also thanks to all delegates for their great work.

Looking forward to the launch of bts 2.0!
