No Affiliate System at launch
« on: October 09, 2015, 04:58:35 pm »
so the question is, is cryptonomex going to be the default referrer for all new sign-ups until there's an actual affiliate system up and running?

I'd expect the referral set to bitusd fee pool or something meaningful until there is a chance for competition.

edit:

question answered

The Affiliate System will be available by the end of the week.

If that is the case, much disappointment.

I thought there was some special account that these fees go into. And the funds from which can be dispersed by a vote or  by the 'committee for changes'' '  decision or something.

Is this account also not available at launch?
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

you guys are mixing things up ..

the referral system is there already and READY TO GO ..

what you will not be able to do right now is: you refere to openledger.info with r=foobar and get credited for the referer ..
that simply is not yet implemented since it needs to be done in a separated backend ..

//edit: and btw .. that is an **voluntary** feature of the exchange (e.g. openledger)

but will work with bitshares.org?

if that's the case, then I probably misunderstood bytemaster in the mumble.

bitshares.org will not host a web wallet .. (for legal reasons) .. that's why the cooperate with ronny .. he also has a money transmitting license

We will work out a referral program for bitshares.org that will see to it you get rewarded downstream by forwarding the r=? args to the partner sites that the user eventually selects.

Ah .. thanks for highlighing this to me .. it seem openledger.info currently does not track the r=? parameter .. I told ronny to shed light into this and this was his answer:

[19:46:43] Ronny  Boesing: and if not of course I am interested, then we just need to find out how to work it

TL;DR; this will come .. maybe not at launch though!

so a marketer has no means here until this is running, which is not what was communicated prior to today's mumble. At least not how I understood it.

also, if other marketers are ready to blow money on the launch thinking they would get refs - and they actually do it - there will be a disaster.

this is not how you attract marketers.

feel free to correct me :)

https://graphene.bitshares.org/#/create-account/?r=fav linking like that doesn't seem to work. how do you build the correct link? (should work by now, correct?)

I would assume the other way round since everything behind the "#" is NOT passed to the web server
hence:
...bitshares.org/?r=fac#/create-account

Using the referral system at this moment seems a bit vague.

Is there a method in place for us non-wallet providers to refer a user and get some portion of the referral credit?

If so, what is/are the page(s)/website(s) we are are supposed to refer a user to?

If so, please provide an example of the exact way we should format the link with our referral code.

Thank you.
