3 weeks have passed and no team member came up to answer my simple question.

This forum is clearly not used...join slack. 3 devs are on at all times.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Blocktix - An Ethereum event hosting platform designed for the real world on: June 30, 2017, 07:46:44 AM
this is copy from the website:

What is blocktix?
Blocktix is an Ethereum based, counterfeit-resistant solution for individuals and event hosting businesses to distribute, advertise, and transfer ownership of event tickets or passes.

Event hosting is an expansive and growing market, yet much like the financial industry, it suffers from constant, systemic challenges regarding fraud prevention, transfers of ownership and intermediary cost.

Utilizing Ethereum smart contracts, the Blocktix platform will leverage the power of decentralization to resolve the systemic issues currently plaguing the event hosting industry.

Blocktix will combine on-chain ticket distribution, a trustless p2p ticket exchange and an incentivised advertising network to create a single source event hosting platform that replaces the fragmented legacy systems currently in use.

The Blocktix platform will have a dramatic effect on the event hosting industry as it will reduce distribution, transfer and promotion costs up to 90% and create real-time accessibility for concertgoers to instantly obtain/sell tickets. These improvements will enhance the concert attendee's purchasing experience and amplify the event host's ability to return a profit.

For further explanation of the technical details and function of the system, please see our whitepaper

The Path forward
We believe the Blocktix user acquisition plan will simultaneously grow the Blocktix and Ethereum ecosystems.

User Acquisition

Although many counterfeit-resistant ticket distribution systems have been developed, some using central ledgers and even some proposed utilizing blockchains, most of these current solutions experience one major obstacle: user adoption. Event hosting businesses cannot use ticket distribution systems that have no users, regardless of the security benefits and cost savings those systems offer. The Blocktix team's experience in the event hosting and marketing industries, has enabled the development of an innovative and practical plan to solve the user adoption challenge. The objective of this three-part plan is to bootstrap the system with a network of users, making it economically advantageous for other event hosting businesses to host their events on the Blocktix platform.

Blocktix Event Hosting

A portion of the future crowdfunding will be used by Blocktix to host a series of concerts. These concerts will be held near college campuses in California, focusing on venues capable of hosting 10,000+ attendees. In order to gain access to these concerts, the attendees will be required to purchase tickets through the Blocktix application, with ETH/TIX as the only accepted methods of payment. For most concertgoers, the desire to attend a concert and to see their prefered artist perform, will outweigh the small learning curve associated with using the Blocktix system. (see FAQ)

For these events, Blocktix will act as the event host rather than occupying a sponsorship role. As the event host, we will retain the events' proceeds and any surplus revenue resulting from the events. All proceeds from these events, along with any surplus revenue, will be transferred forward and reused to host additional events. This strategy will enable Blocktix to host a long series of events, thereby adding tens or hundreds of thousands of concertgoers to the Blocktix network and, ultimately, introducing these individuals to the Ethereum ecosystem.

To help supplement the cost of events and extend the number of events possible, Blocktix will explore sponsor partnerships with companies in the crypto-currency/blockchain space, focusing primarily on crypto-currency exchanges. As all Blocktix events will require ETH/TIX as the only method of payment, all concert attendees will need to have a basic exchange account. A partnership with Blocktix will allow an exchange to acquire tens of thousands of new customer accounts while also providing marketing opportunities at the events. These partnerships will add additional sources of revenue to Blocktix events, thereby greatly extending the number of hosted events possible.

Rather than attempting to acquire a share of current crypto-currency users, the Blocktix user acquisition plan directly targets mainstream individuals (concertgoers) and exposes these individuals to crypto-currency. For this reason, we believe the Blocktix user acquisition plan will simultaneously grow the Blocktix and Ethereum ecosystems.

User Retention

A portion of the event hosting fees will be allocated to retain users and encourage reuse of the Blocktix system. After each new event, ETH/TIX tokens will be distributed to every application wallet that has used at least one ticket to a prior event. With each new event held, additional TIX/ETH will be distributed to each prior user. The continued disbursement of ETH/TIX will increase the value in each prior user's wallet and thereby create an increasing incentive to purchase additional tickets for concerts hosted on the Blocktix system.

Incentivised Advertising

All previous ticket users will receive fees for viewing in-application event advertising. This incentive to view the event advertising will increase the effectiveness of the in-application advertising. Receiving the incentive fees will increase the amount of ETH/TIX in each user's application wallet, encouraging them to purchase additional tickets for concerts hosted on the Blocktix system.

Attracting Event Hosting Businesses

The Blocktix user acquisition and retention plans have been designed to develop a network of Blocktix users, with an interest in event attendance. Access to this network will represent a valuable opportunity to target a concentrated base of tens/hundreds of thousands of users, with the additional benefit of each user possessing a wallet balance, ready to use toward purchasing tickets. The unique Blocktix platform allowing open access to this network of users will provide a very compelling economic and practical incentive for event hosting companies to choose the Blocktix platform when hosting their events.

Conclusion

Blocktix is an incentive driven system for both ticket users and event hosting companies; it adequately eliminates the limitations of existing platforms, including offering solutions for counterfeit and transaction fraud, reducing promotion associated fees by nearly 90% and improving the overall user experience. By providing solutions to the constant, systemic challenges in the event industry, Blocktix will swiftly become the most cost-effective and prefered platform for event hosting.

*Blocktix will operate in cooperation with event promotion companies, artist management companies, event venues, ect.

TIX Tokens
The Blocktix platform will require TIX Tokens to be used as a system access fee and to have new events show up on the event feed. TIX tokens will also be required to place in-application advertising. TIX and/or ETH tokens will be necessary to facilitate ticket purchases and P2P transfers. The hosting, transfer and marketing fees will be distributed to TIX token holders who participate in the event/advertisment verification process which is open and available to all TIX holders.

Fee rates will initially be set as described below. Fee rates will be increased/decreased by majority vote of TIX holders after launch of the system.
   Posting fee based on number of tickets and total value of all tickets offered, roughly 2%.
   2% of the value of all p2p transfers through the exchange platform.
   A per contact fee for direct marketing to local users of the Blocktix application. The amount of this fee will be based on regional advertising network traffic.

Blocktix fees are designed to eliminate spam, compensate token holders who participate in the event/advertising verification process, discourage for-profit ticket trading (scalping) on the P2P exchange, and to incentivise mobile application users to view event advertisment. There should be no expectation of profit from TIX token ownership or from the Blocktix system.

Crowdsale
The Blocktix crowdsale will be an opportunity to acquire credits (TIX) to host events and advertise on a decentralized event hosting platform, built on Ethereum. Crowdsale funds will be allocated to complete development of the system, provide funding for the user acquisition strategy and fund promotions that will transition Blocktix into the most economically sensible platform for event hosting businesses.

Waves is finally seeing the kind of upward movement those of us who have been around since the ICO hoped for almost a year ago. It's been a long wait, but our patience is being rewarded. It's so cool to finally see it start to happen. All the waiting somehow makes it all sweeter.

WAVES was never going to ride on the rails for long...it has too much going for it...its a rocketship.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 22, 2017, 10:08:11 PM
Curious, what was ico price?
Thnkingof investing in waves.
I know the answers here will be biased but why is waves better than bitshares? Or komodo, heard they will have a dex too

WAVES has a DEX...a nice one... Shocked
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 22, 2017, 08:08:53 PM
So close to $2  Grin

It was over $2 earlier today. The milestone has been crossed.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 15, 2017, 09:04:15 PM
I really like Waves
I am waiting to ride the big wave:-)


WAVES is getting used more and more...more and more ICOs are taking advantage of the WAVES platform. WAVES is in line for a run to $1 billion in the near future.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 15, 2017, 08:54:09 PM
presently my waves lite client does not work (for the first time)
do you have the same problem ?

yes. already not want show my balances and history transactions.
I was thinking maybe I lost internet connection but but only lite wallet not want working.
I think its temporary problem so need wait some time to start working again.

Mine seems to be working...weird.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 15, 2017, 08:46:34 PM
This looks like a monster push will happen in next couple of days.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 14, 2017, 01:10:59 AM
What's wrong with the lite client?

Too many bugs and errors. I hope they can fix it in short period.
We need more transactions, right now leasing is not very profitable.
any full client? I always use lite client.


lite cliente 0.4.19a fail......

"Error!
Failed to load balance details"

"Error!
The Internet connection is lost"

"Error!
State check failed"

There are no issues on my client. Are you sure your's is updated?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 13, 2017, 08:29:56 PM
Sure seems like WAVES is gearing up for a serious run in price. That chart looks like a pressure cooker.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 13, 2017, 05:59:38 AM
Waiting for the dump?
the price is creeping back up after the charts came out. any dump should be short-lived
I think there is a tsunami when the tide。

I think there is supposed to be some news on Monday. Not sure what

Eur gateway


Any fiat gateway that goes live on WAVES will make WAVES a $2-$5 billion marketcap project.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 11, 2017, 12:40:05 AM
i cant believe waves price are near one dollar Cheesy i was holding them at the ico
gj!

I can't believe its $1 either. WAVES price should be $20 dollars.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Blocktix - An Ethereum event hosting platform designed for the real world on: May 08, 2017, 10:32:29 PM
Hi dev,
I want answers, How long your projects will continues,
because I am very interested.  Cool

The development has been ongoing since November or December I believe. The crowdfunding has yet to be announced. Join the slack Slack.blocktix.io it is very active and there are people who can answer any question you may have.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Janus [JNS] Blockchain secured global business NXT - Ardor on: May 07, 2017, 05:33:28 PM
We had a small public test with a few people on the new site today for some stress testing, the result was good but revealed a memory leak that is being patched now. Shouldn't be too much longer before launch. So far the early reviews are positive. We are very excited to let everyone try it out as soon as possible though, more details to follow.

Mmmmm....smells like free money!
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: WAVES. Ultimate crypto-tokens blockchain platform. on: May 04, 2017, 11:06:54 PM
Is Waves going to integrate someway to pre-screen all these new tokens before distribution?

People shouldn't be able to create tokens with the same name as a legitimate one...

I.E. I received a "WBTC" (Identifier: G6F52cNqSi7v2kuj2anzyKkYgbhsijWvCJDD3WvKzjLH) and a "Bitcoin" (Identifier: 3y7oak8nrFNWnjWVsH7TKL8poXK4oBEUE24UxKdFwpyX) which are obviously not legitimate. Creates a lot of confusion...

I'm all for receiving free stuff but, these random worthless tokens are cluttering up my asset portfolio.


I would have to agree with this, it does create a lot of confusion.


Also a way to archive assets or idk, to hide them from list because they drop and drop, I just got 4-5 in a row.

Increase the cost to create the new tokens to $100 range...that will stop some of the spam tokens.

They are using the system like an advertising platform...they can send a message to every WAVES client for $0.70.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Janus [JNS] Blockchain secured global business NXT - Ardor on: May 04, 2017, 07:12:21 PM
Now is a great time to get more JNS before we see the price of NXT go p before the IGNIS snapshot. This may be the last chance to get JANUS below 10k satoshi because there are not that many for sale on the markets.

+1 to that.

shoot 10k this soon?  imagine where JNS will be in just 6 short months from now!  Shocked Cool

The cheap JNS is GONE!

People, Waves isn't coming to PoloniEx... PoloniEx is coming to Waves.

There have been some amazing concept designs created like this example. DEX will get some basic UI improvements in the next month, and stuff like this might be in the new few months.



People, Waves isn't coming to PoloniEx... PoloniEx is coming to Waves.

when they update dex to this it will change all game

This is absolutely the case...they should get a really good UI designer and knock that DEX out of this world. That would change this crypto game forever.  

I'm sure with the new coin leasing they could figure out how to margin trade and short on the DEX aslo.

Amazing news! Remembering all good things you did for blackcoin  and all hard work you put in projects you were involved gives confidence that this will be the same. Adding on top of that experience with concerts and all its a no brainer  that this will be successful project.

Im glad to see that dev team doesn't take anyone to the project but they choose carefully.

The slack chan and Twitter are filling up nicely. Not a lot of activity here.
