[Worker Proposal] Bitshares GUI Worker Proposal Renewal
« on: January 31, 2018, 03:12:08 pm »
Bitshares Community,

Can you believe it's already been 6 months? Actually, we are just a few weeks shy of 6 months. Over this time, we made sweeping changed to how the UI functions and to its overall look. The goal from the start was to fix bugs and make marginal improvements to the feature set. I am hopeful that the previous budget which will cover the next two Sprints still will include TradingView integration to the exchange and provide for full trading and activity history via ElasticSearch. Assuming we complete those items, the next six months will bring:

  • An expanded budget to fund real UX talent
  • Responsive design on every page
  • Improved Multisig UX
We are going to maintain the existing bounty program but be aware of the additional hours required for a more professional UX team.

As with the previous proposal, Bitshares Foundation is handling the receipt and distribution of funds. The WP will be paid in USD and any overage BTS will be refunded to the pool at the end of the term. Here is a link to the formal WP:

If you are new to BTS and are unaware of the work carried out by this team, please take a look at the closed milestones 170830 - 180115.

You've got my vote! Of the approx 10 Bitshares-UI issues I've raised, at least 7 of them have been solved within a few days and made available within the next UI release. Funding this worker proposal is highly worthwhile.

Keep up the great work [member=6036]wmbutler[/member]! :)

I think the daily budget you asked (in terms of BTS) is too little.

1.14.82 is wrong, asking for 20 bts per day.

1.14.83 is the good one :)

That is a bit too little for a team IMHO. Better make daily 10K BTS or more.

Agreed [member=18687]abit[/member], since the WP will require 35k bitUSD per month, this equates to 77K bts / month or 2592 BTS / day at today's rate of $.45 / bts. To be safe, it probably makes sense to request 6k per day to safeguard against a 50% drop during the 6 month period. [member=120]xeroc[/member] ?

Also, I have opened issue https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-ui/issues/1094 to add the Worker ID to the display in the UI to alleviate confusion.

Lastly, I presented a BIP to allow for the originating user to deactivate a WP. This will become a huge problem if the community begins to actively use WP's.

Indeed, the first proposal as a mistake, sorry for that!



The math the BBF does on proposals is like this:

210000 * 1.5 / 0.42 / 30 / 6

where 210,000 is the total over 6 months with 30 days a month at a rate of 0.42$/BTS .. the fact 1.5 should include the volatility of BTS and worked out great so far ...
With the amount of bitUSD workers the BBF has currently planned, it might be a wise idea to not burn BTS as fast as was originally planned and keep some more buffer to be on the safe side (still everything not used as promised needs to be burned ultimately - see accounting)
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

As long as you are able to remit funds reliably, it's fine with me.

Can anyone here request votes from the bitcrab camp? Thanks for the votes of confidence. Most bugs are gone now and I expect some serious polish by the end of this term.
