is the function of opening and closing a feature needed
« on: February 19, 2016, 01:35:32 am »
the function of opening and closing a feature mean stockholder can vote to open or close a feature (eg. transfer/ market/ dice (if have in future))  like change chain parameter
do you think if this function need ? 
the advantage :
1.can try many feature ( like dice  )on chain and don`t worry that the feature if comply with policy. because the feature can been close if policy change .
2.closing the feature with risk to chain
the disadvantage
1.it is a double-edged sword, because  it can close a feature , lol

I don't understand what you mean.

He wants shareholders to have the ability to turn features & FBA's off/on,  like Dice for example.

Dice could be a popular game, that brings some revenue and volume to the DEX & really benefits BTS.
At the same time gambling is banned in China, so it's possible having Dice on the blockchain could harm BTS growth if it wants to expand more in China.

By having the ability to turn the feature off/remove it, BTS would have the ability to try blockchain dice but turn it off/remove it in future if the drawbacks outweighed the benefits.

There is no reason why a wallet needs to allow any specific feature.  I would much rather see different wallets for different markets.  Heavy trading wallets for traders, simple transfer wallets, PM wallets, dice or other casino game wallets such as roulette, slots, or video poker.

Wow, that's really good reading between the lines!

I was very confused by the OP, so thx for setting this straight Empirical1.2.

I really struggle with the language barrier with posts like this. However I'm sure it pales in comparison to what others have to deal with that live outside the USA.

Thank you for you patience and willingness to speak up in spite of the language difference. We need all the input we can get, especially from the demographics that represent the majority of shareholders (which I believe is the Chinese).

Regarding the idea put forth in the OP, I tend to agree with puppies, that such issues would probably be handled best in the wallet / UI, allowing the blockchain to remain as unrestricted (i.e. think "unregulated") as possible. If jurisdictional restrictions are deemed necessary let them be implemented in such a way as to not impose them on everyone.

Although I now understand the idea expressed in the OP I also believe it is contrary to the free market principles that BitShares and blockchain technology in general were invented to protect. In general I'm not prone to think in terms of placing restrictions on what can be done, in the same way that I am opposed to restrictions on the Internet, which still remains the closest thing to a free market on this planet. I just wish all people everywhere could experience the same high degree of Internet freedom I can here in the USA.

I don't understand what you mean.

I don't think there is a need for a feature to do this. Worker proposals are the way to go both ways: either to add a new feature or to remove an old one.

It is indirectly already possible, via fees.

I appreciate the effort and stepping up despite the language barrier, however I'll go with puppies. Each service provider can build the features he wants.
