would you support a cheater as the wintess?
« on: December 27, 2018, 10:19:24 am »
I guess we all known how important the feed price is for us, and it's one of the mainy jobs for the witness.
but crazybit give us a 'fake' feed price.
here is his logic as I observe today:
every 5 minutes, he will check if his price equal the finally feed price(median price of all feed price),
if it's not, he change his price to the median price.

This is a very stupid strategy, it's cheat.
what's the thought of those who support him as a witness?

Do not know how do you get such conclusion, but i would tell you that the truth is NOT as you imagined.

i am currently using this feeding script(https://github.com/crazybits/bitshares-pricefeed), as i know, many witness are also using this feeding script, you could review the code you would like to.

and below is a part of today log, please let me know if u still have question.

Look at the strange activity of his account http://bts.ai/u/baozi

Every day he's changing his votes, and lots of bot accounts are following him as proxy.  He must run his own bots and is doing something strange with constantly changing his votes and it looks like crazybit is getting in his way somehow.

Do not know how do you get such conclusion, but i would tell you that the truth is NOT as you imagined.

i am currently using this feeding script(https://github.com/crazybits/bitshares-pricefeed), as i know, many witness are also using this feeding script, you could review the code you would like to.

and below is a part of today log, please let me know if u still have question.
can you explain why almost every time when you update your feed price, you will follow the median price?
when the median price keep unchange, you can keep unfresh for 45 minutes, but when the meidian price change a little bit, you will follow imediately at next cycle?
here is some snapshot, https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mk406jgfBlVeJTpn2OeX9-1VSUqT81gE

for CNY
at 8:31, you followed the median price at 0.2703,
at 8:45, you followed to 0.2697,
you keep unrefresh about 34 minutes when the median price unchanged
at 9:19, the median price changed to 0.2699, then you update your price to 0.2699 at 9.20
at 9:24, when the median price change to 0.2705, you update your price at the same at 9:25
then you followed to 0.2708 at 9:35

for USD
at 08:35, you followed the median price at 0.0389,
at 08:40, you followed to 0.0388,
you didn't refresh for about 44 minutes  when the median price unchaged
at 09:25, you followed to 0.0389
you can see the same action at 09:34 to 09:35

crazybit your feed is extremely high compared to other witnesses, causing margin to not be eaten, please fix it

To prevent the market manipulation by the malicious trader, the witness should not public his feeding logic, as least not all the witness, i would try to disclose more info since you still question me, currently, i am using weighted strategy by market trade volume as attached below, and the behavior you observed are all determined by the feeding program, btw, the feeding interval is 5 mins.


Code: [Select]
default:
    # max age of a feed
    maxage: 43200

    # minimum percentage that forces a publish
    min_change: 0.001

    # warn if price change goes above this percentage
    warn_change: 10

    # skip publishing a feed if price goes above this percentage
    skip_change: 50

    # skip publishing a feed if producer is not an active witness.
    skip_inactive_witness: True

    # how to derive a single price from several sources
    # Choose from: "median", "mean", or "weighted" (by volume)
    metric: weighted

    # Select sources for this particular asset. Each source
    # has its own fetch() method and collects several markets
    # any market of an exchanges is considered but only the
    # current asset's price is derived
    #
    # Choose from: - "*": all,
    #              - loaded exchanges (see below)

the bsip42 has negative feedback, so the price u saw before might be higher than the market price, after the community abandon the bsip42 and adopt bsip41, witness crazybit start to feed the market price days ago.

this can't explain you feed price behavior at all.
you have said several witness use the same strategy as you, can you show me anyone who have the same pattern as your account?

i said many witness use this script, but do not said they used the same strategy as me, please note the strategy is configurable. i also do not know their feeding logic,
