* SNAPSHOT NOTICE *
« on: October 21, 2014, 09:59:21 PM »

We are planning a PTS snapshot in two weeks on November 5th for potential use in the merger plan under discussion

This is the one year anniversary of the PTS genesis block when Super3 mined the very first block.

It could become a great day to celebrate the mining of the very last block.

I wonder if there will be some crazies that will continue mining even after it has lost all value... Just to preserve a piece of history. I'll definitely run my bitcoin node forever, even when it has been completely obliterated by bitshares and other second generation DACs.

PTS's difficulty is significant.
Perhaps someone could revive PTS few years ahead with more efficient hardware but I doubt it will be used anymore.
Bitshares has yet to prove itself. Bitcoin is here to stay for a long time.

I intend to find my first ever PTS block some days after that day... it will be of course for pure nostalgic reasons only (after all, if we do succeed killing something,  we will kill mining years before we kill the bank), but I will add that info to my 2 prime (coin) chains that netted me  about $0.00003 a piece.

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

This whole exercise is a farce. If you want consensus then you should receive it from each asset independently by allowing them to vote with their stake with the condition that I3 does not participate in the voting (and especially not with funds pegged for marketing). These rigged forum polls and on-a-whim decision making based on information buried deep in the forums are nothing but theatre.

Also Stan, I noticed some of your old posts have disappeared. For example, this months-old post is now gone: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=4684.0

Any explanation as to why these old posts have selectively disappeared? Not jumping to conclusions as there may be a perfectly valid reason.

To clarify, forum polls are rigged in the sense that they are gameable (at worst) and represent a small cross-section of people who troll the forums (at best).

PTS, RIP. You served your purpose well and you're still in my wallet. But I won't miss you.

Yes, but it's the best we have for a short while longer.  One result of this upgrade is that in the future we will have a consensus-based system built into the governance of the BTS Chamber of Commerce.

Try this for a mind-blowing change of perspective:

Do you remember the topic or anything about it?  A search phrase?

Hopefully Bitsapphire has everthing backed up.

All my posts are historical treasures!   :)

Will the "mandatory" update of the bitshares client occur the same day?  (5 November)
If yes, is it right to assume that all short orders must covered before the update?
If no, when it will happen?

You already said that AGS got 6x time more then PTS, then you could not prove it actually you acknowledge yourself that you did not verify and turns out is was false information . So please before accusing or making false claims, make sure you can back it up.
