My Committe Slate
« on: October 24, 2015, 07:31:52 am »
As Cryptonomex matures and gains traction as a world class Blockchain consulting firm Bitshares will need to focus more on the committee to sustain itself. To that end I have been thinking about who I would want to have a hand on the helm. This is not a popularity contest or a measure of one's worth in the community. It's purely as a shareholder wanting the best for my investment.

1) BM - While he has publicly stated he has not interest in this position I feel he needs to take a seat at this table for a while longer.

2) Carpet Ride - Well seasoned in the real world of the investment business, long term Bitshares silent supporter.

3) Toast - Though moved on to other projects a committee member is not a paid or full time position. His crypto/economic domain knowledge and no BS approach would be an island of clarity.

4) btswildpig - A long term supporter of BTS and a fantastic representative for the Chinese community.
 
5) alt - Strong technical understanding of Bitshares and, as far as I know, in good standing with the Chinese community.

6) Method-x - A proven track record of knowing what succeeds in the marketplace.

7) This list will change over time.

Like I said at the start this is not a popularity contest nor is this an exhaustive list of my dream slate. These are the people I'd want to have sitting around the table, engaging the community, making decisions, and ensuring the stable future of the project.

Fav?

Fav has indeed been a strong supporter of the project from the start and a valuable member of the community. What do you feel he would add to the above pool that is not already represented?

Fav?

thanks, but the time I got between working voluntary for the forum and trying to build referrals is already very limited at the moment. I just don't have the time to get involved in politics :)

vikram, nathan, and theoretical are all CNX core.

I don't think he is saying 6 is all thats needed.. those are just some of the members he would like to see.

I think you would be good at it riverhead.  Especially since you have decided not to pursue a witness position.  You could be a permanent committee member.  I know I would vote for you.

I think the best committee members will be people who have a solid understanding of market dynamics. Regular traders, folks with a background in economics, etc.

Bm- wants to leave the project and/or start charging to fix problems cnx created and should not have been problems prior to 2.0 release.

Toast- quit the project, works for a competitors

Method- got elected as a delegate, quit, still got paid, never delivered anything while blaming the market cap and being too busy with more important things.

Bm would be good to have for a while since he has a lot at stake. Method and toast I would vote against... Unless they can do something to alter their perception based on past events.  Remeber bm said committee members need to have a lot at stake in the bts ecosystem.  Either balances should be shown or business plans should be known for each member.

False! I NEVER got paid anything. Everything I did for this project was done for free. In fact, I invested my own money and incurred massive losses. If the "perception" is that I got elected and quit taking BTS for myself, that's just fucking disgusting. I left because I'm not working for free and have my own company to run. I also have zero interest in being a committee member.
