I highly recommend delegates also run a seed node (perhaps a separate computer) and then post that seed node in the forums.   I would actually like the seed node info to be included in the public-data on the blockchain associated with the delegate account (but we are not quite there yet).    This way if the main seed nodes are taken down people know where to find additional trusted bootstrapping nodes.

Hi guys,

been a delegate on all the dry runs, and during that time I started developing some tools to help me manage the bitshares client and monitor it easily. You can find the code at:

https://github.com/wackou/bitshares_delegate_tools

There are still quite a few rough edges, but it currently looks like this:



There are also push notifications implemented for iphone that warn you immediately when your delegate goes offline.

Please vote for me (wackou-delegate) if you like it and want to support me to keep on developing it  :)

Hey, delegates, we should directly connected to each other closer to reduce yours delegate latency or prevent from being in a short fork, which might cause missing blocks.

So, if you trust me(actually, you do not need to if you have high security protect), PM me with your ip and delegate node peer info which can query by

Code: [Select]
network_get_info, I will probably tell and add it to the delegate bitsuperlab node whose reliability is higher than 96%, or even more other delegates or seed node I know and trust.

Code: [Select]
network_add_node
A tip, the entities with more than one delegates, you should connect your delegate directly to each other by network_add_node, especially connect to  most reliable one.

Let's make the network more healthy together

I was thinking about why not run several (Seed) nodes and use them as proxies for the delebates .. then only those know the ips of the delegates while delegates are connected to high reliable nodes .. network can use those as seed nodes .. win-win-win .. except for the costs

I think bytemater already have a design of delegate p2p networks, for the delegates to directly connect to each other directly, only the delegate with the signature of active delegates can join this network.  That will make the DPOS more powerful.

Maybe I'm thinking about this wrong but wouldn't that get us closer to a centralized cabal of delegates?

Not any more than DPOS as designed now... DPOS does not prevent delegates from making direct connections to each other outside the main network
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

What do I need to do as a delegate?  I registered "jakethepanda" as a delegate.  I'm willing to learn/buy whatever I need to become a trusted delegate.

Why vote for "chinese"?

1) I am cooperating with China Education Bookstore and will donate 20% of income to the poor students in China.  Donation details will be posted for public review.

2)I will destroy 20% of the fees and  my pay rate is 80%. It is my way to pay dividends to all the bitshares holders.

so is it not recommended to be a delegate with the gui?
If so how do you do it otherwise? where do you download the BTSX wallet that's not GUI?

Anyone correct me if i'm wrong... but I believe you need to start another, separate wallet on either a VPS, separate computer, virtual OS, etc. And then send funds from your "real" wallet to the new wallet you plan to run as a delegate. Whatever name you give the new wallet you'll vote for it via your "real" wallet.

Hey, I'm registered as a delegate, and if you vote for me, you'll get free horrible art! Check out this thread for more info.

If you're too lazy to click that link and you just want to vote for me, my account name is eightbit, so the command to vote for me is:

Code: [Select]
wallet_approve_delegate eightbit
As for voting for other people... I was able to get a few votes in, but when I try to vote for happyshares:

Code: [Select]
wallet_approve_delegate happyshares-1 true
I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
delegate_record.valid() && delegate_record->is_delegate(): happyshares-1 is not a delegate!
    {"n":"happyshares-1"}
    th_a  client.cpp:1724 wallet_approve_delegate
