Would you guys like me to add a rating system for assets?
Ala mood, S&P etc.
How/who would rate them because even if I build it, I won't have the time to do the actual rating, I'm struggling with getting everything else done as it is.
some of the things I'd like to see implemented into this rating are:
does the asset have a clear definition of what goes into dividends (x% profits from mining/arb bot/other, x% to growth, x% to CEO, etc)
does the asset have a clear definition of when dividends get paid
paid last x dividends on time
does the asset have an open book to allow open audits (mining asset with statistics site, investment co that publishes last months trades, etc)
clear definition of what happens to assets if/when the company goes offline (hardware sold and funds dispersed, existing capital distributed, shares/bonds purchased back by company, etc)
contingency plan on file with GLBSE in case asset creator gets hit by a bus/meteor/alien abduction
has other online verification (facebook, ebay, otc, linked-in, etc)
has meatspace verification (photo with ID and shoe on head, verified physical address, etc)
Most of this is usually covered by the contract, or on the assets forum post, but having it more standardized would be great. If GLBSE doesn't yet hold contingency plans, then this would be a great new addition I think.
