Re: [spoon-discuss] Re: [Nomicmarket] Nomic Market beginning.

From: Daniel Lepage <dplepage@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
OK, now that that's there (and while waiting for my message to show up in
Thermo), I come to the market and convert all but one of my Coins into 1000
BNS each. I'd better protect these puppies while I can.

This post has been sent to both the market and B Nomic, as both an example of the hazards of free trade, and a request for any ideas of how B can fix its ruleset.

The problem we have now is that if we legally recognize the Market, we're violating our Bank rule - it stipulates that there exist exactly 5,000,000 BNS, but the Market stipulates that Craig's got 1000 more. How do we reconcile this?

Three ways:
We can have the B Nomic ruleset (as it does now) ignore any B Nomic Shillings that are not in B Nomic, and whenever Craig trades those BNS to someone in B Nomic, the Bank loses some, and if someone trades some BNS out, the Bank gains some.

We can have the B Nomic ruleset recognize any BNS in the Market as well as in B Nomic, and have those BNS that others (like Craig) exchange for come from our Bank.

We can change the Market ruleset so that changing items into other items isn't allowed.
