General Support / What changed yesterday?
« on: December 19, 2018, 03:00:55 pm »
Yesterday https://forum.biblepay.org/tools/podcstatus.php?cpid=83f33d4a5e046be370ffc4dd5378fad9  started showing this profile as dropping below minimum stake.  However, it was actually at 134% stake the whole day and hasn't been below 100% since 12/12.  We have a few new machines, but otherwise, nothing changed.  I download a new wallet almost every day because it changes so often, so the wallet isn't outdated.  Anyone know why this would happen and how to fix it?

Thank you for your answers to my questions Rob, that was extremely helpful!  I know they weren't easily answered and I appreciate your thoughtfulness and candor.

As someone who is considering investing money into the BIblepay system, I am looking for some help with lingering concerns.  Here are my questions for the developers and significant stakeholders (anyone with more than one master node):
1.    Which is more important to you: protecting investor value or protecting contributions to charities?
2.   Do you consider moving money into the Biblepay system to be an investment or a donation to a charity?
3.   Biblepay has already seen significant fundamental changes and is again considering more significant changes.  Can you provide any assurances that these changes will stop, or is frequent radical changes something that will continue to be typical for BIblepay?
Thank you in advance for your help!

Gotcha, thanks!

I guess I am trying to walk a fine line.  The idea does have merit, and I certainly don't want to be disparaging.  However if the new idea is unable to stand on its own, it may be best to wait until the audience is better developed, there is a strong foundation of success to build from and there are corporate partnerships in place.  The current BBP does have bugs to work out, so improving the current product offering by making it more new user friendly seems like a better approach than a fundamental change. 

Here is an example concept for PR: Giving to charity is a good thing and the current donation recipients are certainly good candidates.  But there may be a way to add some strategic donations that can help with some of the lingering issues.  For example, if BBP set up a $500 -- 1,000 scholarship for essay writing with Regent, Southeastern, Liberty, etc. you would get targeted students looking at the program closely.  Some of those essays may be decent candidates to be published in school publications which could get the author an additional scholarship.  Something like this would expose you to people that could potentially help solidify the support needed to keep the system viable or better, help it really thrive.

My thought was running two coins.  Since the new concept is so different from what is currently working, launching it from scratch made the most sense to me.  That would give two options -- one for the more advanced users and the other that is so easy to use, anyone, can set it up.  I don't see any way to have such a significant fundamental shift without massive devaluation. 

Most of us probably mine multiple coins already, so if doing the other system on my cell was easy, I would do it.  If you focus the marketing nearly exclusively on mobile devices, it shouldn’t be a direct competitor for the current BBP system.

I guess then there is little purpose to Team BBP and we should advise all our users to join Team Byteball and get more rewards?

Why do you say that?

I didn't see anyone else ask this, so I apologize if this is redundant, but what about doing a fork and running with the current system and POG?

How would this proposal impact sell side pressure?  If it results in a significant increase of sell side pressure, you should see a reduction in BBP value per coin.  This would mean the dollar value per month going to charity would remain the same because it is based on the amount of coins purchased in the marketplace.  However, the value of each person's holding would be reduced because of the spot price reduction.  This would hurt people that currently have large holdings.

I am still reading up on the history of BBP to get caught up on everything you guys have done since inception.  Though I am not a polling expert, I have done a little work with polling and my focus was centered on analysis.  With the current question, the focus seems to be a measure of trust which is important, but not everything.  There may be several non-trust related issues that would lead me to not support the idea, but the only options that fall under no is me saying I don't trust you.  My suggestion would be to include a no for other reasons category.

Please also note that the question is actually two or three questions and limiting the question would help with clarity.  In other words, the first question is Would you support POOM? (yes or no) The second question is What is my level of trust with the BBP system? (Likert scale)  The unstated (but implied) question is Should the valuable developer effort be dedicated to developing this or something else? (POOM or something else)

You guys have done an amazing job so far, so please don't think this is a critique.  My goal is to help you get answers that are closer to how people actually feel and get more actionable feedback.

Thank you very much, that did the trick!  I don't understand how that happened, I pulled the config and wallet files over at the same time.  At least it is working now!  :)

Thanks Rob,
I checked to see if they are synched and that looks good.  If the address isn't the issue, I will try #2.
