BitShares X rebrands itself as BitShares; adopts greater scope


A new blockchain "DevShares" will be used for testing the upgrade of BTS and future hard forks as well as experimental features and economic experiments.   This blockchain will be a 40/40/20 snapshot AGS/PTS/X taken on November 5th.    DevShares will not be considered a "safe store of value" but non-the-less will have value for those wishing to test their smart contracts or BTS integration on a low-value chain.   Details on DevShares will be provided over the coming month.

What about the BTSX in the short?Is it snapshoted into the short account or into the BTSX platform?

With this merge, those who squat bitshares domains with X on it also affected.  :'(

This is awesome news.  This is a *huge* improvement!  If the development community keeps making good decisions like this, BitShares might actually have a chance.

Can you post a Google docs link please.

 +5%  Method, would be very interested to see your version.  If this is a wide press release, I see a number of areas for improvement.  Ill be on Mumble.

Yup, I could definitely improve this but I need the Google docs link bytemaster referred to in the OP.

I did my own edits on goole doc (barely know how to use it  :). I'll pm and BM. you the link

i read other proportions in other post like

pts 100
btsx 1

I figured it was some esoteric relation to a turing machine. Just another buzz word with little to add over just saying "we're adding a scripting lanuage" to the client. It that statement is incorrect, pls explain the difference between "turing complete" scripting and just scripting.

Touring complete has more features. For example a scripting language without loops is not touring complete. By definition a script is said to be Turing complete if it can simulate any single-tape Turing machine.

This air drop will be made based upon ownership as of midnight UTC.

Should have the date as well, though it is in the FAQ.

Reads well. I did not know about DevShares. Is this going be the, ah..resource, developers will need to acquire to test their new ideas? Always something new and cool around the corner :).

Been hearing this phrase turing complete mentioned lately, what does it mean?

It means we are going to hire Vitalik ;)

Been hearing this phrase turing complete mentioned lately, what does it mean?



From wikipedia:

    Turing completeness, named after Alan Turing, is significant in that every plausible design for a computing device so far advanced can be emulated by a universal Turing machine — an observation that has become known as the Church-Turing thesis. Thus, a machine that can act as a universal Turing machine can, in principle, perform any calculation that any other programmable computer is capable of. However, this has nothing to do with the effort required to write a program for the machine, the time it may take for the machine to perform the calculation, or any abilities the machine may possess that are unrelated to computation.

    While truly Turing-complete machines are very likely physically impossible, as they require unlimited storage, Turing completeness is often loosely attributed to physical machines or programming languages that would be universal if they had unlimited storage. All modern computers are Turing-complete in this sense.

I don't know how you can be more non-technical than that except by saying "turing complete means 'able to answer computable problem given enough time and space'".

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.
