Of course there will, that's not what's being discussed.  The proposal of uniting Bitshares could make the marketing much more effective.  Exciting to see how it plays out :D

The marketing push will come once the product is ready. This final crisis signals the end of a phase where the community still hadn't fully decided what bitshares would end up becoming. It is now clear what bitshares will be, and I imagine that "launch pad" preparations for the marketing push will be made over october and november, with the push beginning maybe in December.

Tbh I do think we, as a community, should demand greater transparency regarding the marketing push. At least shareholders ought to now how many guys are currently hired, and what their salaries are.

Yes, things are on track and moving forward. We're coordinating our plan with the release of the new GUI, so there are a lot of moving parts to align.  b

I bet you are excited about the proposal to consolidate everything under the Bitshares brand name!  It was tough enough trying to explain to someone that understands Bitcoin the relationship between Bitshares, BTSX, BitUSD, Vote, DNS, DACs etc... I couldn't even wrap my head around the challenges your team faced. With the consolidation proposal, branding should be so much easier. Very exciting!

The plan now (as it's in MAJOR transition) is to complete the rebranding and simplification of BitShares as outlined by bytemaster in his post "Proposal to Resolve a Million Issues at Once," along with the GUI redesign, and marketing campaign - all at the same time.   So the dev, marketing, and GUI/web development teams are planning to complete these projects on the same timeframe, all by the end of the year.  B

Brian,

Has the recent developments by FINCEN in classifying payment exchanges (.eg Coinbase & Bitpay) as Money transmitters affected any forthcoming relationships with your "onramps and offramps"?

Hence the need for BitUSD...  BitUSD makes BitPay unnecessary and allows merchants to accept payments directly.

Is (or Will there be) a simple way for merchants to plug into BitUSD? Is some secure checkout API going to exist? Or do we wait for a third party to create one?

We only have so much we can do at a time... once everything else is done it is on the TODO list... but would get done faster if a 3rd party figured it out.

While actual usage would be great, I think the best place to start is just letting people know we exist in the first place. I watched a piece on the Today show(don't judge me, I just happened to be in the room) and they did this whole segment on apple pay and http://www.mcx.com/.Mcx's app is currently invite only. I can't help but feel like their is alot of hype that is being naturally created right now that we could have piggy backed on.

I would argue that's fairly idealistic in the near future. I like the vision, but would prefer a bridge. Payment processors are a great way to bridge this great technology to those that aren't willing to go hard core.  With a payment processor, the merchant can decide which part of the transaction they get paid in fiat and what part is paid in crypto.  Look at the Shopify announcement by GoCoin, 10s of thousands of businesses are able to accept payment with little work. Now when you approach businesses about BitUSD, you can inform them that it's already being accepted by thousands of businesses.  It's a jump start, not a final destination.

I recommend looking at this response from Gamey:

There's only so much development time and marketing capital.
