Bitshares Daily Briefings (Global Version)--Inaugural issue-2014.10.29 Wed.Editor's Note:
Bitshares has only been introduced to us for 4 months , we've seen it's ups and downs. We had excitement , we had disappointments , we still have hope. It's one hell of a ride. But as you all know , for many reasons , we're finding a hard time communicating with each other in this community . These reasons not only included language barrier , but also related to how difficult it was for people to comb though truck load of information in every aspect of this community. So , what if ,we can access to a useful daily that allows ordinary members to know "what's new today" without spending too much time ?
As the newly formed Chinese Spokesman team , we've decided to provide such tool to the community in both Chinese and English.That's what this daily briefings brings to the table . keep in mind , this is more like a daily briefing than a actual news paper , we want to keep this as simple and relax as it should.Voices from the English Speaking community
MeTHoDx , maybe from Argentina , an entrepreneur , is offering to be a marketing delegate . His marketing strategy is to grab those markets we often missed ----- Those countries with USD need and don't have enough USD supply , like Argentina
. We've translated his post to the Chinese community , and many of the Chinese thought it was a brilliant idea . Bytemaster seems to like the idea , as long as he doesn't need to pay MeTHoDx a dime from the AGS fund .
Many members from the English Speaking community liked this idea as well. https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10679.0Stan said that there is no rules why marketer can't be a delegate
, but the marketer would have to prove his value to the stake holders , if one can do that , even a janitor can take a bite from the delegate position if the Bitshares system need a janitor . (The janitor part was joking , of course ) .https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10679.15
Brian Page , marketing director of Bitshares , is aiming to launch a marketing campaign after all issue including rebranding are simplified by the developers so it will be easy to present to the ordinary folks
. We should be expecting progress on this plan at the end of this year . https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10166.msg140266#msg140266
Cob , developer of Music project , said that business as usual
, nothing changed at the moment . https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10637.msg139907#msg139907
Toast , developer of KeyID , said " I'd like to put the key graph onto BTS. There you will have a "keyID" but they will not be actual accounts, just named keys. I could import names from keyID at the snapshot date.
" Maybe that's for those who still want to use the names registered in the original KeyID after the merger . https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=10590.msg140038#msg140038Voices from the Chinese Speaking Community
BTS-Bear (BTS熊) , the founder of the slogan "BTS is good , worth 500 USD each coin properly properly"
, suffered a great lost in the merger plan . He was really angry at first , maybe still does. Depite his feeling for the merger plan , he still loves this community , and he made a valid point today , and that is , this community is still very young , it needs to grow , it needs more than just I3 to have a future , and that goal can not be achieved without a strong community . We should have more options than just relying on I3 to make the right decision in the long run .
Note: "BTS is good , worth 500 USD each coin properly properly" is made before the total supply of BitsharesX was still 4 million . Since the total supply is 2 billion and more , the original meaning of this slogan would be "BTS is good ,worth 1 USD each coin properly properly" . This slogan started as a joke , has become famous in the Chinese community.
PTS-China(PTS中国) , the promotor of PTS at the early stage in China , after seeing a big dive of Bitcoin price today , he shared his deep thoughts . He use bitcoin as an example to show how a system without usefulness for real business applications would fail eventually . Money are flowing out of the Bitcoin system , and if Bitshares can't learn any lesson from this , Bitshares will suffer the same fate. He urged the community and the Bitshares developers to take this more seriously , stoping playing with concepts after the merger , and devote more effort in the real business application.
A Passer-by , with no name , stated that there are no active QQ Group communications regarding crypto currencies for days excpet QQ Groups of Bitshares . That shows the popularity of Bitshares in China still exist comparing to the other alt-coins .
For those who don't know yet, one QQ group often contains 200 and more members . If a QQ group of a crypto currency hasn't said a word in days , that means no one cares or has hope anymore in that specific crypto currency . We still have hope , but we may not have much time . We have to distant ourselves from the ones losing the battle , and fight our way out of this mud .
Jerry (J神 , J-GOD) , a god-liked person , well known in the Chinese community because of his great "if then" algorithm
. He often said that "If I sell BTSX at 0.34 CNY , then buy it back at 0.13 CNY , then sell it at 0.25 CNY , and then buy it back again at 0.11 CNY, my BTSX can multiply , it would be awesome !!" But...He didn't do one of those buy and sells , just keep holding BTSX , and he said that "if then" sentence nearly every day. So , that was how he become a god . But he's getting serious about the development . He drew a detail improvement plan for the Bitshares today , the developer should really take a good look at it . It is a very professional advice
go to this link and see for yourself !Some Chinese members are happy about the newly formed spokesman team
on the role of helping the effective communication between the Chinese and the rest of the community , as well as some English speaking members . We really appreciate their support . Fuzzy , gamey , JoeyD , TonyK also showed us some love .
