Requesting price feeds for the Hertz ABA
« on: February 27, 2018, 12:34:49 am »
Hertz - Oscillating Algorithm Based Asset

Hertz is an MPA which is modified with a sine wave to predictably oscillate with a 14% amplitude, and 28day period, resulting in a price feed range of $0.86 to $1.14.

Price feed scripts have been created for wackou's bts_tools, xeroc's bitshares-pricefeed and the reference Hertz python-bitshares based price feed implementation.

A $750 (bitUSD) bounty is still available for the implementation of Hertz in the btsprice price feed repo.

I'm seeking additional price feed publishers, I've pre-approved 25 price feed publishers (detailed below) who can begin publishing price feeds for Hertz at their discretion. Any elected witnesses not currently publishing price feeds - I'd greatly appreciate feedback regarding what would help you begin publishing price feeds.

Approved price feed publishers:
fox, wackou, xeldal, xman, abc123, xn-delegate, datasecuritynode, delegate.ihashfury, bhuz, delegate-1.lafona, delegate.freedom, elmato, in.abit, verbaltech2, witness.yao, witness.still, roelandp, taconator-witness, blckchnd, sahkan-bitshares, openledger-dc, sc-ol, billbutler-witness, delegate-zhaomu, hertz-feed.

Actively publishing price feeds:
wackou, delegate.ihashfury, verbaltech2, roelandp, taconator-witness, blckchnd, sahkan-bitshares, sc-ol, delegate-1.lafona, hertz-feed.

Not publishing price feeds yet:
fox, xeldal, xman, abc123, xn-delegate, datasecuritynode, bhuz, delegate.freedom, elmato, in.abit, witness.yao, witness.still, openledger-dc, billbutler-witness, delegate-zhaomu

We may need to increase the max price feed publisher quantity again unless I start swapping above approved (and inactive) price feed publishers for willing parties.

Cheers,
CM.

Posted an update with a similar request for publishing price feeds on Steemit last night: https://steemit.com/bitshares/@cm-steem/hertz-updates-28th-feb-2018

Hertz is now live on the BTS DEX: https://steemit.com/bitshares/@cm-steem/hertz-is-now-live-on-the-bts-dex

Additional price feed publishers would be massively appreciated - those listed in the OP are pre-approved & can begin supplementing the current price feed producer set at their discretion.

Some recent updates regarding Hertz!

Zapata42 has been added as a price feed publisher, he completed bounty work implementing hertz and hero support within the btsprice price feed script and has recently become an active witness. I met him in person at the Bitfest event in Amsterdam, had a good chat and he requested permission to publish price feeds, looking forwards to his high quality feeds in the future. I believe that Zapata42 has also added support for Hertz in his price feed tracking webpage which is great!

I've removed wackou since he hadn't published in 42 days, I'm pretty sure he has taken a break from crypto, but if he is interested in publishing price feeds again in the future there's always room for him!

The Hertz whitepaper was updated: https://steemit.com/hertz/@cm-steem/updated-hertz-aba-whitepaper-check-it-out Check it out if you've not read it yet, it'll help explain the purpose behind Hertz, the effects each phase may have on market behaviour & it introduces new bitasset collateral terminology.

We're going through our 8th successful oscillation now, it's pretty cool to see the price feed oscillation working as expected: https://crypto.fans/hertz/ (Note that the skips in the graph were logging issues on the website, not hz downtime).

Further, the following permissions have been permanently disabled to improve the trustworthiness of Hz on the BTS DEX:
* Disable force settling
* Allow issuer to force a global settling
* Committee fed price feeds  (Will never be used)

The only flags which remain (yet are unused) are:
* Enable market fee (In case we want to explore incentivizing buying the peak & shorting the trough)
* Witness fed price feeds (In case we want to set this then burn owner permissions)
* Allow issuer to force a global settling (Can't seem to disable? Raised an issue!)
