xjabc, who may become an LPC, has pointed out that right now it is quite difficult to deposit BTC or PPC on BTER or CCEDK and convert it to USD in significant quantities at reasonable prices. For this reason he suggested providing relatively modest liquidity himself.
Right now KTm is our only LPC. This lacks the redundancy our network requires to function reliably. So, I suggest LPCs that want to provide relatively modest amounts of liquidity present a proposal to shareholders. Ask for generous compensation to cover the costs of converting from BTC to USD at unfavorable prices. The $5000 of liquidity you provide will look quite significant when KTm’s NuBot experiences an unexpected service interruption.
