To celebrate the launch of our web based client (see here for more
) we are begining the launch of our documentation project.
Nolonger is our command line client the barrier to entry that it was (we have a web client, Woo hoo), our greatest is now writing contracts for assets.
I've not had the time to write good documentation, it's not my strong point and I've better things to do, but it is sorely needed.
So this is why we are commisioning a GLBSE Manual/eBook.
And we are paying 31BTC to do it (31 to celebrate bitcoin hitting $31USD)! That's over $900 dollery doos.
You can work as an individual or as a group(I'll then pay the group bid, and you decide yourselves how to divy the payment).
The goal is to have a filled out wiki (your choice of wiki hosting) that can also output the entire wiki as a pdf(wikibooks is a good example) ebook.
Copyright is CC (or whatever).
The wiki/ebook must explain in as easy to understand terms as possible(this is the minimum, more is better):
- What GLBSE is.
- How to use the basic functionality of GLBSE.
- The concept of ricardian contracts.
- How to create a contract to list on the exchange.
- Some example contracts for shares, bonds, futures, options.
- Explain how to trade on the exchange.
- Give a complete guide on how to raise capital on GLBSE by listing.
You can of course organise the manual in anyway you want and include anything you like ,but it must cover the above as a minimum.
You can include images and diagrams.
Post links to your manual below (doesn't have to be the finished version until dday, would be nice to view progress)[no longer a competition]
You can of course email me with questions, contact current users of GLBSE for information on how they use it, you can also use this thread to ask questions on functionality.
Also I will be on irc this Friday for a couple of hours to answer questions at 8am Beijing time.
