I'm also not on the book of faces, but I understand the desire for relatively easy authentication / mass adoption.  I guess we just have to create the next big social network so you'll be compelled to switch. ;)

... Our simple wallet will use Facebook authentication to make it extremely easy so in some ways will have slightly less ''personal & contextual privacy' than Bitcoin... 

I refuse to use facebook.  Will you have other means of authentication?  Basic email sign up?

I would also need an alternative to Facebook for authentication.

Same. They gave me teh ban hammer after posting some "police state" stuff. It didn't hurt my feelings at all and I actually still cherish the moment. ;)

count me in as well.

i am curious for your first design drafts of the wallet.

We'll probably try to introduce some brief screen flows in the short introduction video.  We'll see how soon we can get that out.

Eventually there will probably be an email option, but unfortunately right now with limited resources and our goal to get mass adoption we need to rely on Facebook.  They have a billion daily active users which is pretty unbelievable, but we plan to piggy back off them.   I think probably 10-20% of 'active users' are for authentication only and for convenience and not that many people use Facebook.  For authentication purposes, Facebook doesn't get much info at all from third-party apps.  I understand we'll probably lose 10-20% of the crypto crowd, but we have to make the trade-off right now with limited resources.

I'm also not on the book of faces, but I understand the desire for relatively easy authentication / mass adoption.  I guess we just have to create the next big social network so you'll be compelled to switch. ;)

Yeah that would work.  Telegram is a good open-source protocol...

Yeah when we have more resources we can probably put together a complementary website with the same UI/UX that allow various other auth methods,  but from a UI/UX perspective limited options makes it much easier for the average person so the main website will be very minimalist.

Yeah there are a lot of terrible things with Facebook and I used to feel icky using it, but I got over it because as long as you don't post personal info (and tell your friends not to) they can't do much.   I just use it for convenience and authentication.  The US version of BTC38 does a good job of being user-friendly and they use FB only.

Just make a fake Facebook account to use for login. Don't use it for anything else. The next big sociel network should be decentralized and the add profits gose to the members.

I agree.  That's a good way to do it for those that are allergic to Facebook.   You can just use it for authentication.  It takes resources to set up authentication, prevent spam,  create password recovery, provide security etc.   Just think of it as taking advantage of Facebook.    But it's a fair exchange.  They get to pad/inflate their 'daily active user' number to investors while people are actually using bitCash and other 3rd-party apps.   :)

Count me in if it's not too late!

 8)

The prospect of blockchain/crypto-safe USD is one of the most promising innovations that initially pulled me to bitshares.

The focus on USD-only really gives bitcash the opportunity to market it as a form of digitized dollars (more like something with the familiarity PayPal, less something with the complexity of bitcoin)
If the bitUSD peg works well and we get visited by the liquidity gods, there shouldn't be much reason for bitcash to explain the complexity of "bitUSD" - or even the term itself.

I suspect the majority of consumers will merely need to know that it is "money on a blockchain...like bitcoin - only with dollars"

Right?

Like PayPal on a blockchain?


Now the hard part:

What markets do you expect to be most likely to adopt bitcash - at least, in the primary stages?

More specifically, can you share with us the markets bitcash plans to focus on?

[member=26]montpelerin[/member] You're in!  Welcome to the club!

Yes digitized dollars is the meme we want to get out, and also the idea it's a new kind of money.

In the early stages, we'll reach out to: 1) the medical marijuana community 2) merchants (esp. high risk) 3) millenials/college students 4) anti-establishment/libertarian groups  5) tech-savy & crypto communities 6) unbanked/underbanked

We'll probably narrow it down to 2-3 of the above and then just focus on one.   Anyone with any connections to any of the above let us know!

Thanks Pheonike!   Yeah include that as 7) online adult industry

Any connections in that area would help... Online cam girls came up before and I think that's an avenue to pursue.
