OK, I got it figured out and run a test against my own accounts.  I now need to clean up the script a bit, test again, and then get the OPEN.FIMK that will replace the asset I am transferring back to myself.

In your OpenLedger logs, you will see an "Override Transfer" operation.  This is me transferring your existing FIMKRYPTO assets back me, the issuer.  I will then send you OPEN.FIMK as a replacement.

Again, I will only be doing these transfers for anyone having greater than 1 FIMKRYPTO

Another follow up...

I finally figured out how to stop trading...  There is a small bug in the UI when updating an asset.  I was able to use the CLI wallet to fix the problem.

As such, all trading has stopped, but the orders that were out there prior to the halt in trading still remain.  As I can't cancel an order for someone else, all existing orders must be canceled before I can give you retrieve my FIMKRYPTO from your account and give you FIMK.  Please cancel all orders so I can get you your FIMK

Nothing new...  I'm trying to figure out how to stop trading, so that no one can get conned into trading for FIMKRYPTO but not being able to cash out.  I want to end the asset right.  Bitshares says it has the ability for me to stop trading and transfer asset back to myself, but so far, I haven't found anyone who knows how. 

Keep trading for now if you want.  I am still trying to figure out how do to this...

I still have FIMKRYPTO balance and trading strong. Any news?

Have you considered, when will the related exchange pairs be closed? At the same time or just a little bit before closing donw the gateway?

My intent was to stop trading completely.  I have updated the asset to require  issuer approval for trades and white listing holders.  In theory, this should prevent trades, but my questions to the Bitshares forum have not given me an exact answer on how to do it.  I guess Bitshares is still new enough that no one has tried to stop trading.

I have decided to close down this gateway.  The biggest reasons are low volume and the current legal environment regarding cryptocurrency in my home country. 

If you would like to pull your FIMKRYPTO out of OpenLedger, please follow the standard withdraw routine...

Transfer your FIMK out of OpenLedger
     a.  Transfer your FIMKRYPTO asset to my asset owning account, "warmach"
     b.  Include your FIMK network address in the memo field where you want the FIMK transfered

I will allow about two weeks for withdrawals to be requested.  After that, I will take remaining balances greater than 1 FIMKRYTPO and issue FIMK asset as a replacement. 

Here are the balances as of the closing of this service.

Technical Discussion / Re: Main FIMK node service interruption

Forgot to mention: I had to restore from a backup from December a couple of times on both of my servers before they started staying on the main chain.

Thanks.  I'm still in process of trying to get back on right fork...

This seems to have caused some instability in the network: for example my server and Warmach's pool have forked several times. Could you have a look, what might be wrong?

I have two servers running in two physical locations, and neither are forging according to lompsa.  I guess we just wait?

Hey Everyone,

As FIM trading as been at a minimum, I have been not checking for deposits and transfers very often.  Life gets in the way and as a result, I did miss a deposit where a user missed an opportunity they hoped to take advantage of.  I apologize for this. 

I do monitor this forum's posts on a news feed app on my phone regularly.  If you have a deposit/withdrawal request, please post here as well.  I had hoped this venture would see more activity but understand why it doesn't.

General FIMK Discussion / Re: Forging Service - Anyone Interested?
« on: November 14, 2016, 01:00:45 AM »
I'm not sure, if that would help. If I've understood correctly, the number of servers (and the distribution of balances between the servers) is more relevant than the number of forging accounts. If you have multiple accounts forging on the same server, wouldn't they all end up in the same fork*? At least the opposite is true: I have one account forging on 2-3 servers at a time, and the servers end up in forks independently of each other. And only the "correct" one is shown in lompsa.com, of course.

The more I think about it, the more I think you are right.  One server can forge with multiple addresses, but each server has its own local blockchain.  What we really need is more individual blockchain (a.k.a. servers) so that there is a greater consensus on the chain and less chance of forks.

What might work better, could be that warmach and/or any other "too" large server split in two, dividing the balance between two servers. For a pool, it would require moving half of the forgers (balances) to another server. For starters, warmach could move his own balance forging to another (account and) server. Also the forging support from association could run on multiple servers (if not already running). What do you think?

Well, I have a primary server that forges for the pool, but I also have backup servers.  Each backup server also forges in the event that primary server goes down or hits a fork.  If I have 3 servers running, I'm not sure it matters if I split the forging accounts among them or just use the pool account on all three.  In the end, I think it is how many server nodes are on the network, not how the forging accounts are spread out among them.

One question I do have, If I have 3 servers running behind one public IP, do we get the stability effect of 3 nodes?  Or does it just act as one?

Is this asset still on sale somewhere and buyable and doing money for the owners?

I don't think so.  I think the seller of this asset cashed out his FIMK stake.

General FIMK Discussion / Forging Service - Anyone Interested?
« on: November 12, 2016, 03:00:30 PM »
As we see our network stability becoming an issue, I'm trying to think of ways to help.  As we've determined, the instability is likely because we don't have a large number of forgers. 

I have an idea to help with that.  Before I write the code to make it happen, I wanted to ask the community if they wanted it and/or if it would be helpful.  Please respond with your feedback.

My idea is to do away with a forging pool and become forging service instead.  Each "client" would be given their own forging address.  The password to this address would be held by my service and the client.  The client would then lease their balance to their own forging address.  My server would then forge using the forging address.  After a set period of time, probably 24 hours, any forged funds would be transferred back to the client's original address. 

With this method, my pool would add another 15-20 forgers to network.  With both parties having the password to the forging account, trust required in the service is reduced as the client has direct access to their forged funds.

Ideally, the "fairness" should be close to 1 for everyone, but because of (intended) randomness of the algorithms, occasional forking and/or downtime there are variations. But as you can see, even small forgers can get a fair share of the cake, if they can keep their servers up and running.

To support the small forgers, I decided to give 10 000 FIMK to each of those forging with less than a million FIMK. Beware, there might be similar rags in the future! And if somebody can convince me that they might start forging and commit to the task, I can make a donation up to 100k. Just private message me, and make your "business plan pitch"!

I am also willing to help small forgers get their servers up and running.  I have a perl script that is easy to use on a simple Linux setup.  I have setup a FIMK server on a Raspberry Pi.  The RAM requirements make the Pi (512 MB RAM) a little unstable.  Any other small computer or VPS should work.

I've been trying to figure out a way I can help facilitate running a server without the need for the password.  I'm open to any ideas.  The best I've come up with is to forge with an account where we share the password.  The user then leases their balance to this shared account and we auto transfer funds back to their original account.

Technical Discussion / Re: Forking problem again?
« on: November 05, 2016, 01:14:12 PM »
Could you tune down Krypto Fin ry forging support? Now it's forging a lot more than its stake suggests, so maybe there are forking problems again. At least all of the pools have dropped off from the list:
https://lompsa.com/#/activity/fim/forgers/latest

While I don't know for sure, I think the wild swings in forging is because there is a smaller number of people and total FIMK forging. Before the HEAT buyout, we had like 30+ forgers and 200 - 300 million FIMK forging. Now, we have about 10-12 forgers and 60 million FIMK. I think we just need more whales!
