[Worker Proposal] Core Team 2019
« on: January 31, 2019, 09:00:04 pm »
BitShares Core Team Budget Worker Proposal - 2019

* Author: Ryan R. Fox ("fox")
* Complete Document: Steemit Post.
* 国语翻译 Mandarin Translation: TBD ("TBD")
* Accounting: Provided by BBF

Intent

* Provide sustainable protocol development funding for the BitShares Core Team
* Operate as a multidisciplinary collaborative team to benefit the BitShares decentralized autonomous community (DAC)
* Engage the community, regulators and public as the authoritative source for protocol development and information

Background

This budget proposal represents a follow on to the efforts established and executed by the
BitShares Core Team in 2018. It seeks to continue funding the development efforts related to the core protocol and expand its scope within the DAC to deliver greater outreach throughout 2019. The Core Team is responsible to our DAC to transparently deliver a secure protocol, collaborate on research, prioritize innovative features, and engage our Community and the public toward increased protocol adoption.

Worker

This is a _Budget Worker Proposal_ which funds the following effort areas through calendar year 2019:
* BitShares Core Development
* Collaboration Tools
* Conference Participation and Community Engagement

This Worker funds a not to exceed budget for ideation, collaboration, development and defense of the ideas, engagements and implementations required to advance the BitShares Project. Individuals supported by funds from the budget occupy a defined set of Core Team Roles at specific rate valuations detailed in _Table 2._ below.

BTS are collected into the "workers.bitshares.foundation" account which is a multi-sig account controlled by "BitShares Blockchain Foundation" and owned by "committee-account" using the Budget Worker Model which provide:

* Transparent accounting provided by the BitShares Blockchain Foundation
* Invoice review, approval and remittance within 5 business days
* Compensation remitted in a viable SmartCoin (i.e. bitCNY)
* All accumulated and unallocated BTS returned to the Reserve Pool at the conclusion of the Worker

As the team size scales or BTS token valuations fluctuate, subsequent Worker(s) will be offered to fully fund the Intent.

Core Team Scope

The primary focus of the Core Team remains maintenance and development of the core protocol and oversight of the BitShares Improvement Proposals (BSIP) process. The Core Team will continue to liaise with the BitShares UI Team, and other community lead efforts maintained within the BitShares Organization on GitHub. The Core Team continues to guide Community Contributors toward promotion into open Core Team Roles through the Community Claims program detailed below.

Collaboration tools will continue to include software tools and server infrastructure to support development and testing efforts. The bitshares-core GitHub repository remains the primary source for our planning, discussion and deliveries. The Core Team participates with the UI Team and BitShares Committee to manage access within the BitShares Organization on GitHub.

Attendance and speaking engagements at relevant international conferences, hackathons and events remain an important component of the Core Team's dedication to community outreach. We gather for in-person meetings prior to each conference and hold remote planning meetings throughout the year.

Expanded Core Team scope for 2019 will include:
* Participation in one (1) additional international conference
* Multilingual information gathering and dissemination (English and Mandarin)
* Designate the Development Spokesperson(s) for public engagements

Besides SmartCoin and UIA ,we need UnionToken.
UnionToken is a built-in platform ,for more institution register in Bitshares and make a union to issue a token.

TUSD is a UnionToken . UnionToken is more credible than UIA , and more flexible than SmartCoin .

什么是TUSD
根据其官网(https://www.trueusd.com/)的定义,TUSD称自己是“以USD为支持的ERC20稳定货币”,在价格上按1:1锚定USD,用户可以凭TUSD等额兑换(赎回)相应的USD。
在机制上,TUSD认为稳定货币的需求客观存在,但去中心化的稳定货币(如BaseCoin等)现阶段还存在较大的不确定性,所以目前以法币作为抵押物才能构成稳定货币的可信基础。同时项目团队作为技术提供方,将不会直接接触托管帐户中的USD,而是与多家银行合作,机构或用户存入的USD则会直接100%进入合法保护的托管账户,确保资金安全。
在技术上,TUSD通过智能合约,实现了在USD入帐确认后会生成相应的TUSD,在赎回USD时则会自动销毁相应的TUSD,以此来动态保持TUSD和美元的1:1锚定关系。

TUSD声称的稳定性和合规性:
1、使用托管帐户作为基金管理中使用最广泛的合法工具,为持有人提供定期审计和强有力的法律保护。
2、任何通过了标准KYC/AML验证的账户或机构在法律上有权按1:1换回USD(需要扣除手续费)。
3、TUSD设计的法律框架,可以让机构和用户直接与托管账户操作美元,不需要经手TUSD项目团队。
4、托管帐户会持续专业审计并发布报告。

和USDT有什么区别
简单来说,你可以把TUSD视为更加公开透明化的USDT。它们有着类似的特点:都是由中心化的机构来发行;都按1:1锚定USD;也都声称在银行中存有相应金额的USD作为发行依据。
而从现有资料来看,TUSD花了大量的篇幅强调自己在法规上考虑得更加全面:包括由多银行负责托管帐户、由第三方出具帐户余额认证等等,团队绝不和存入的USD直接打交道,不会出现裁判员和运动员于一身的情况。

研发锁仓系统。


bitcny这类利用抵押机制生产的稳定币,最大的缺陷是流量不稳定。所以,bitcny不贬值是做到了,但是在熊市严重紧缩,供应紧张,失去流量优势。

理想的状态是:BTS没有熊市,BTS被机构储备。90%的BTS被储备锁仓,9%的BTS被抵押造稳定币,1%的BTS在市场上流通。

90%锁仓的币给了1%流通币信心,信心阻隔熊市,没了熊市,抵押机制才能正向循环:(1)产生越来越多的bitcny ;(2)更多的币被锁仓而不是被抵押。

如何做到:更多的币被锁仓而不是被抵押?
这个问题需要大家集思广益,这是我们缺失的功课,因为,我们以前的思维是越多的币抵押,BTS流通盘越小,BTS价格越容易长,抵押生产更多bitcny,加仓更多的BTS抵押,然后比特币熊市来了,爆仓爆仓,囤积bitcny产生黑天鹅。

(1)锁仓有利息。利息来自某基金会或交易手续费。这是币圈普遍做法。

(2)增加锁仓用途。例如身份认证,信用押金。
机构通过锁仓BTS ,可以组建联盟,发行信用高于UIA ,灵活性高于SmartCoin的UnionToken。这种UnionToken,可以是稳定币,也可以是证券债券。

说实话,bts理事会有孙宇晨10%的营销能力,那bts的市值以及稳定币的格局就不是现在的模样。bts有着比其他项目超前好几年的系统功能和机制,可惜理事会真的效率太低,甚至太无存在感了,理事会还不如几个见证人对bts的影响大,而且,对于发展社区和保护社区,基本处于旁观状态,多少btser被反复蹂躏,社区越来越散,人也越来越少

ebit you raise a very interesting topic here. I am keen to discuss it further. However, respectfully, I feel we should discuss it within a new forum post specific to UnionTokens. If one already exists, please provide the URL and we can discuss further there. Else, I suggest you open a new topic (and post the URL here). As mentioned above, 瞳沈 (Tong Shen) is working with the Core Team to better connect with the Chinese Community and he will help us with translating and advancing the conversation further.

Thank you,
Fox

Yes, Hack the DEX will remain an independent Worker in 2019. Both the Core and UI teams support the Hack the DEX initiatives. Collectively our review time and the rewards are paid from that WP. Our development/bug fix time is paid from the respective development team WP.

$125-$150 per hour for C++ developer?!?! seriously?!
An average wage is $42/hour. The highest is $96/hour.

WTF?! This is absolutely NOT necessary for development. It should be a separate proposal or a personal decision of the developers, if they want to spend their OWN money from the salary.

Your proposal is very inadequate. It needs to be revised.

ps. why did you ignore these questions on Steemit?

You're looking at salaries, not contractor rates. I've known of people on $1000/day when contracting.

Your proposal is very inadequate. It needs to be revised.

It's now actively voted in, it doesn't need to be revised, technically.

I do not agree. This team has been supporting the Core of BitShares for a while and has done a great job. Representation of the Core team at conferences is a vital part of the publicity of BitShares, we cannot ignore that. BitShares already has a lack of publicity and if we can get representation included in a worker, that is something that I am for (and suggest other people vote for as well).

As a proxy voting for this worker, I do fully understand the concerns raised by @dexy - I came to ask myself the very same questions.
My conclusions is that this is the cost for an **independent** development team. If we (the BTS community) wanted this cheaper, we'd
need to hire a company to work on this. Developers in that company would earn less (probabably about 60-80$/hr) and will be managed
by the company. But then, don't expect that this company will invoice only the rates of those developers. That's not how a software
house can survive for long, profits need to be made for the company too, hence, you are looking at a rate that is at least as high as
current core devs'. And even if you found a company that was willing to contribute for less, I still prefer to have our own team that's
knowledgable trusted and loyal to the BitShares community. Totally fine with paying for that.
