y=x^2 is a parabola

Hello, Devcoiners!

I am the founder of the Parabola Project!  We are aiming to create an innovative new coin with multiple services on launch, such as stores, faucets, exchanges, and more!  To support that, we are creating a 5% dev fund, in which every 94th block has six times the coins, but 5/6 of those coins go to the dev wallet.  I have noticed that devcoin has the same thing, though with a 90% dev fund.  I am interested in the mechanism of that fund and how we can implement it into parabolas!

Thanks

Review of ‘Amazon gift cards for Devcoins’:
http://dvc4giftcards.us/home.html

Bought a $1 gift card with DVC. Very quick and straightforward, with a choice of card denominations. Great to see another enterprise utilising Devcoin as a means of payment. Process was as simple as selecting value required, entering name and email address (and whether gift card code is required via email or bitcointalk pm under ‘note to seller’) then transferring the sum of DVC to the address provided and waiting for confirmations to complete (6 confirmations).

A preliminary email was also received prior to sending DVC, which adds a sense of certainty about the process before finally committing.  I only have positive things to say about the portal and the process. Good work.

I don't understand the problem. The source code explicitly explicates the mechanism by which the fund is funded.

So maybe you want somehow an explication of how it happens to be the case that very often when Unthinkingbit proposes an expenditure from the fund be scheduled he doesn't get shot down?

Or maybe you want an explication of how it happens to be the case that some addresses get added into the list of recipient addresses and some do not?

Or maybe an explication of how it happens that some get removed from the list?

Or what?

NOTE: Please be so kind as to continue this line of query in the thread you linked above, or create a thread specifically about "Who gets to be on DeVCoin's disbursements lists, what for, for how long" type of topic.

For his successful Amazon Gift Card Business, Smeagol gets 12 shares, plus another 3 for a non mining business.

For his post, Weisoq gets 2 shares. All of these bounties are in round 27:
https://raw.github.com/Unthinkingbit/charity/master/bounty_27.csv

To give more incentive for people to try out the business, I was going to sweeten the bounty for only the first post with two million devcoins. So I sent those to Weisoq. After I sent the devcoins to Weisoq, I realized that I sent roughly half as many as the bounty for actually making the business, which is much harder, so also I sent two million to Smeagol to balance everything.

60 million DVC bought up today, price down to 34 sat. I have the feeling we're going to see a pump soon...

looked to me like 60 million was dumped on about the 1st Sept driving price down to below 0.000000020 or am i wrong?

Thanks but could you put my 2 shares towards founding (or add to if one already exists) a bounty for completion of the Devcoin animation/video. There was an effort already underway - by marticps - which was looking pretty good so far but I don't know how it's left. When the video is done I will also pay 1 million dvc myself to the animator, who can decide for themselves if they want to split that with anyone else involved.

(Appreciate I could just do this myself, but there’s a risk I’ll just forget or be busy with other things so would like it to be administered like other bounties if possible – quite happy to also back up the incentive by sending you back one million dvc to hold in escrow).

They're just for testing, they don't affect earnings in any way. I don't know why I uploaded them in the past, or why they dropped out, but since they're unnecessary I won't put them back up.

I agree with weisoq that an animation or video for devcoin, like the bitcoin video, would be a good publicity medium.  I would be willing to write a couple thousand words to contribute to the bounty as well, if needed  Smiley.

My brother died and I kinda fell off the face of the internet. But I'm back, and I posted a couple thousand words to Devtome.

I am writing a book that will have a good summary of Ancient History and I thought I would share the rough draft with Devtome as I wrote it.

In terms of the animation so far by marticps I wrote a simple shortish script and jasinlee was going to do a voiceover when complete. The project has stalled over the summer due to holidays - in fairness to marticps he was honest about time constraints and amount of time it takes to build - which is why I want to offer firm shares/payment from me to at least contribute something to the effort it takes. That doesn't preclude anyone else having a go though if it's of decent quality (there was some earlier discussion on the thread about a video with ideas/opinions if anybody's interested).

Unthinkingbit - can I assume then that you're ok with passing over my shares towards that bounty? Also, is your address on the receiver files the best one to send 1m dvc to?

Yup, I'll add it to the first person who makes an animation. My address on the receiver files is the best one, but I don't want the extra work of handling an escrow, so please send it directly to whoever makes it.

For the animation, I suggest a 48 share bounty for the first devcoin animation which is at least 3 minutes long, and 24 shares for the second. If there is a dispute over the quality of the animation, it would be voted on by three randomly chosen admins willing to rate stuff, a range vote of 50 or more on a scale of 0 to 99 would be enough to get the award.

I'm not sure about the three minute minimum length, is that about right? I don't want to make the minimum too long because people have a short attention span on the internet.
