What if bitshares grew big enough to buy bitpay? Or another payment service? Who would we want to buy to get mass merchant adoption of bitUSD/other bitasset? With bitUSD being stable bitpay may actually be a poor choice (not sure) as part of their services would be useless, but what what about payment processors and the like. If we will have the power to vote in additional shares to fund growth, a key area should be merchant adoption. Maybe there are large payment processors who we can make deals with to aquire merchant adoption in big swoops. Of course market cap has to grow considerably
before this can be funded, I'm just thinking 6+ months down the line. Maybe there are ways to piggy back on bitcoins merchant adoption without having to do the whole thing from scratch. Will we need a small "in house"/"in DAC" (as oppose to external, bitpay) team dedicated to merchant adoption?
Edit: This is just coming from my realization that if stakeholders can vote to allow delgates extra
pay (dilution) then there's no reason bitshares can't buy out 'real world' companies is there? (other than needing to be big enough).
