The third report of the BBF was updated

http://www.bitshares.foundation/announcements/2018-03-02-spokesperson-report

i like the approach. what about start conversations with https://shapeshift.io/ to get us back up ?

- bitrex: legal issues.
- poloniex: communication with them is impossible.
- shapeshift ?

Once there is an opinion letter, things become much  easier.
So far, no one involved in BitShares even tried to obtain one, which is extremely disappointing :-(

There is now a subsequent worker proposal to at least obtain a mandate for the BitShares Blockchain Foundation:

Thanks!

Please clarify what is covered by the funding. The examples you list typically have their own worker proposals, and I'd expect these to cover any required BBF work as well. Or to put it differently - what if the mandate is granted but not funded?

That said, I'm of course aware that this is an important proposal and that a representative needs to be paid. I support this worker.

Edit: after re-reading I think the explanations provided are sufficient.

Any update to the legal council?  Last update I recall the legal opinion was completed however not shared with anyone?  Are all the exchanges basically giving NDA's?  Possible to list what exchanges have open communication to have BTS listed?

This is a good worker, just seems there has been a fall off in communication with some of the projects.

- Legal opinion letter was available at BitFest few months ago in Amsterdam if you were interested to follow up.
- Bittrex has a ball at their court atm and they are stretching re-activation, our side done their deed. Yes, all the exchanges has their own type/view of Agreement and not all consist with NDA (most of them does).
- There is another bounty/worker that is currently looking up listing for CNY and USD, but along few proposals BTS came as an offer in between (for some of top 30 CMC rated exchanges that are being negotiated atm). Listings are between 5 and 15BTC per token, so it's gonna take a while to select/choose exchange with most realistic liquidity/trading volume from those offers. Some of them are pumping themselves...


Hope my replies were satisfying.

@xeroc

 I believe that "Spokesperson" worker was wrongly named/defined and this is much better and more fitting proposal from BBF than previous one. Am I on the point ?

This is finally replacement for "legal opinion" and "spokesperson"? If yes, then I personally support this worker for option 3) aka "Approval for the entire 12 months".

If not, please clarify more. Thanks!

Hello! I was sharing this proposal on Twitter, and someone specifically asked for @fav ‘s opinion.

Would anyone care to hop on Twitter with me to further the conversation?

Correct. With "spokesperson", people expected the BBF to be much more proactive than it has resources for. For instance, some community members expected the BBF to attend conferences around the world, do marketing for the BItShares Blockchain. Interestingly, even when there were opportunities (funded differently) for the spokesperson to attend conferences and do marketing about BitShares, the community wasn't very happy with it. So, what can be learned from this is to be more accurate with what the role is supposed to do. Hopefully, it is more clear now.

Funds are used to cover *time* spend by the entire team on aspects relevant to the work as representative. That mostly involves discussions and talking to third partners that desire to understand more abut the technology and legal aspects around BitShares and BTS. Unfortunately, NDAs prevent us from naming those businesses explicitly, but at least Bittrex is publicly known to be part of this list.
In case the worker is approved and later disapproved, no funding is available, hence, the BBF can still keep the mandate but has to stop spending time.

having official legal rep / one channel for regulators or authorities is essential role in the longevity and growth of BitShares and the community. I'm aware of efforts and goals to date of BBF which are aligned in making BTS regulated and legal to the world, so I am confident in them continuing with the task.

On behalf of the BitShares Blockchain Foundation:

Quote
The worker "Publicly Approved BitShares Representative" (https://www.bitshares.foundation/workers/2019-01-legal-representative) will be running out end of this year. We currently are doing efforts to draft a follow up proposal, and will post it as soon as its ready.

In 2019 the community was offered the choice to have a legal representative for free. This seemed reasonable at that time, it is not reasonable at the current situation. The subsequent worker will ask for a monthly fee for the legal representative.

Among the tasks of the legal representative is to deal with listing agreements, defend against delisting from existing exchanges (e.g. Binance and Bittrex!) and other parties requesting the legal opinion letter or legal questions on BitAssets for all kinds of purposes. We seek to extend our position as legal representative in case the community wants us to do so. If that is not the case, we are also happy to help any subsequent representative to take over obligations and responsibilities as friction-less as possible.

All existing agreements must be considered void if the BBF is no longer the legal representative for the BitShares Blockchain, with all consequences that come with it.
