What's the best ETA for Bitshares? I heard bytemaster say he's going to go in a cave for two weeks, but the change from POW to POS would mean a complete rework of the system. AngelShares gives them some money to get more coders, but all those people will need to be trained or caught up. I'm figuring we might be looking at around 6 months to a BitShares release. Especially since the security people still have to comb through everything. Does anyone have better estimates?

Bump.  Same, Estimated ETA would be great.

I concur. What is the approximate release date, tentatively?

I will have a working command line alpha wallet + blockchain algorithm this month.  I just checked in code that generates bids and short positions as well as transfers and builds a block chain.   I have to implement the bid/ask matching engine which I will have roughed in this week.   Now that I am focused entirely on this I hope to make rapid progress and will report in to this thread every day with my progress.

I'm asking mainly for two reasons:

1,  Gives me time to buy more PTS and plan ahead
2,  Setup more hardware for mining BTS.

Even if you said 6 month or 1 year then its something for me to work towards?

BTS won't be mined, just so you are aware. It's just AGS and PTS now.

In tonights update I am pleased to announce that the blockchain has created its first BitUSD after pairing a short and long.  You can view the debug output to see how the transactions were structured here:  http://the-iland.net/static/chain.html

Next up on the agenda is to enable the destruction of the BitUSD that was just created by covering the position. 

More updates in the days ahead.

How will this work, exactly? How it the security of the blockchain maintained, who processes transactions, and how is the economy inflated?

In tonights update I can report that the BitShares wallet API now supports covering of your short positions.  While implementing this code I realized that the transaction verification for processing the covering of short positions will be a bit more complicated than I had originally thought.  Next on my agenda is to get a robust algorithm for validating transactions that cover multiple short positions at once.   

Things get much more complicated when a single transaction can have many different units, shorts, longs, etc and I have to have robust validation that prevents these combined inputs from being used to manipulate the margin requirements.   Ultimately I may have to place some limits on the number and kinds of inputs a transaction can have.   I will continue to post daily updates.

Today I have enhanced covering of short positions and started work on adding additional margin to open short positions.  In this process I realized that I could easily add margin, but there was no effective way to remove margin using only the context of the transaction because I must enforce collateral requirements with respect to the current market price.   

I discovered some bugs in my bid/ask matching when the ask is lower than the bid.  Apparently I got my price ratios for bids/asks backwards and so they were sorted wrong and therefore only working when the bid/ask matched perfectly.   The good news is that I know know how to fix it and can apply these changes tomorrow.   

Overall I have been gradually increasing the number of test cases that pass and making steady progress.
