Stop arguing percentages and look at the bigger picture.
« on: October 22, 2014, 01:30:20 PM »

I'm tired of seeing all the squealing and moaning about percentage this and percentage that, and the petty infighting of people who complain they didn't get enough of the pie, arguing that they should get more of some other guys piece.

Look at the bigger picture. Look at what we are making.

A couple of years from now, you will have wealth that is completely unfathomable to you now. It will not make any difference if your current stake is cut in half, or cut into tenths - you will have more money than you could ever possibly spend.

You act like being an early adopter is a privilege, that you deserve everything you can get your hands on. Let me tell you it is not. It is a gift, maybe the greatest gift anyone has ever received - and it is time that you take on the responsibility that goes along with it.

The last thing BM and the team need to worry about right now are people moaning on the forums. There are space ships to build, and until they're built and safely in interstellar space there is no time to spend on ANYTHING else.

You got in at the ground. Now help build the ground floor. And then the top floor. And then the biggest freaking crypto-rocket the world has ever seen.

If you want to take on your responsibility as a stakeholder, then go read the thread about transparency measures (https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10301.0) and help envision how YOU, as a stakeholder, can help govern this ship.

We need to have productive discussion and move on from the merger.

That's exactly the kind of argument I've seen for every other shitcoin out there. You're not doing anyone a favour by dragging BTSX down to that level.

Listen, it's not an argument. I'm fully aware that it's backed up by nothing. It meant only for True Believers, who already believe these things. I would never try to convince someone who didn't already "get" bitshares that "it make u millonare hurr durr".

I think we are seeing "true colors" from a lot of people, out on display for all the community to see. Who can handle the intensity of the reality of what needs to be done? I am most impressed by the ones that haveaccepted this reality, even though it may have meant a temporary personal "loss". My observation is that those who hold most tightly to their "expectations", are the ones who cry the loudest when they find out the world does not revolve around them.

I disagree. 

percentages matter.


All of the percentages were at least close to fair except DNS, which got severely lowballed. 
It wasnt fair to DNS, and they are rightfully pissed about it.


A 50% loss is a big deal, no matter what, and its insulting to those that were just hurt to say that it was not.

(I personally was not hurt by this, just trying to stick up for everyone who was).

Well said, Rune. The bigger picture is that we're all getting shares in the next Google. That's the self-interested aspect. Beyond profit, we are getting a better, stronger chance to impact the world in a positive way.

I see people looking to pay for some of their unrealized expectations on top of what was a less than graceful week.
I saw DNS and bought at with the intention of holding for well over 1000 satoshi's and ended up loosing a fair amount of the value because of the postings, but I didn't put myself in a situation where I was gambling everything on DNS rising which I think other people may have. People who went all in on BTSX before the launch were risking quite a bit as well. Also, what happened after the launch of the exchange? Didn't BTSX fall below the price MOST if not ALL of the AGS/PTS pre feb 28 snapshot people paid for it? I believe it did and there was less of an outcry because I think no one knew what to expect and now all of a sudden many people feel entitled to value rather than understanding this is unpredictable and still in growing stages.

I'm proud to be a part of something that is changing, it feels like a young vibrant adaptive company, and that's what I believe in. Smart people making difficult decisions along an unpaved road.
