You are correct, it is about trust first and foremost.
Dan fulfilled his promise to get a minimally functional DPOS to market with a hard cap on the total coins available (no dilution). And the BitAsset price feed mechanism worked which was a bonus not a promise. BTSX trading on BTER is proof of promise fulfillment.
That was all that was promised.
100% trust preserved, next.
If you want to continue with the BTSX verion 4.20 (with a hard cap on total coins), then you may continue running your delegate of that version. Nobody, besides the Bolivian government is going to try stop you. Your dilution free BTSX v4.20 is yours and nobody can ever change that forever! You are lucky to have this freedom, and yet you are unhappy? Maybe if you experienced some good old fashioned Bolivian slavery, then you would have a different perspective, but I digress.
You should be thanking Dan for honoring his promise instead of:
its not about profit，it's about trust.
fuck you fools
I know you are right. I've been telling them newtree for a month before dilution talks started. They have their own vision. I tried but I can't help them.
It’s not Dan’s fault that delegates who are free to do as they please choose to run the new 8% dilution version of BitShares, and not the old v4.20 that you like.
Would you force the free delegates at gunpoint to run a version of BitShares that they would rather not?
What kind of person does that make you?
People like you are the reason why I would rather choose to run the new free-market version of BitShares over the one where you force delegates against their will to do your selfish bidding (secure the system for you, build smart phone apps for you, promote your favorite version of BitShares that Dan made for you).
Dan already fulfilled his promise to construct BitSharesTyranny, now his next project is called BitSharesDemocracy.
And you currently own both versions, and are mad why?
______________________________________________Please fill in the blank, I love learning the mechanisms of psychopathy.
Thank you Dan, for fulfilling your previous commitment. Good luck in your future adventures (of which I am also interested in being a part of).
You prefer the hard capped version of BitSharesX.
Well, you are in luck sweetheart, because what you want is already invented (BTSX v4.20), and you already have it. And you are mad why?
What I want still has never seen the light of day, and yet I am happy?
because I'm a fool.
Could you ever be happy?
BitShares come in many flavors (versions) (they put them out weekly practically), and you are free to choose any one you like. Just be aware that if you choose to use a certain one, then people might hate you and call you names.
BitShares - where choosing your flavors will bring out the haters
Actually the above comment about it being about trust and not profit was not a personal attack on Dan. However yours is very personal indeed. As your account is Dan/Stan that's very sad.
The above quoted statement from myself and from newtree (apologies for his last sentence, you can see I striked that.) was a statement about the marketability of the product.
Specifically that success in this space is about requiring less trust than centralised institutions not more.
The points I've made about Dan having a dictatorial stake and dilution are about the fact that the trust BTS requires will reduce profit not increase it.
It's the difference between being able to market...
'Store the value of a dollar in a robust BitAsset focused, decentralised system backed by limited digital tokens'
Vs. a detractor being able to market us as
'Store the value of a dollar in a new, risky system controlled by 1 man backed by unlimited digital tokens.'
While FUD, it's currently not entirely incorrect. So I have been pushing for both decentralisation and no/capped dilution from a business as well as personal ideological position.
Gamey/Method can also confirm that in PM's I've already previously stated I would definitely give up making my position strongly after Nov 5th and withdraw from the forums to prevent being marketing negative. So I don't feel I'm a psychopath hater just because I don't agree with you Dan/Stan, I apologise to the community if I've come across that way. I feel I was just someone putting my position strongly forward.
I've also said many times on this forum I still expect BitShares to have a good shot >70% at being wildly successful. In PM's, I said 40-45 million CAP within a week. 60-80 million based on announcements but then the rest hinges on the network marketing plan which could make or break the case for dilution. You've given yourselves, a one arrow strategy imo.
I'm quite hurt by your unprofessional, personal rant against me. It's very dissapointing. I've been a supporter since the start & freely given a lot of my personal time to BitShares. Including my old account (Empirical1) I'm probably in the top 20 post contributors. I've never taken a solitary BTS/PTS. (I was awarded 30 PTS by Toast once but gave them back & asked they be directed to BitShares marketing.) Despite not having a lot myself, I've also donated 50k BTSX to try improve BitShares marketing within the alt-coin community https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=9824.0
as well as other donations.
I've really got not much personal to say about Dan. I think he's an incredible talent. I would say his weakness is that perhaps he is more chess than poker, (More optimal solution than behavioural optimal solution) so BitShares has been product strong but marketing & PR weak.
My heart also lies with a hard cap because I feel companies, especially in finance, worldwide, often end up being pretty reckless about dilution and risk. This puts financially uneducated customers at a lot of risk. For me this space is about the opportunity to make the world better & building something that stands the test of time. I also believe the free market will choose that. So when you see a fully decentralised BitAsset hard cap, you'll probably see an Empirical1 will be there
I'm still an investor here and I wish you guys the best of luck especially Dan for all his selfless hard work and world changing talent. Despite my above opinions, I think in BitShares, BitAssets & DNS are going to do a lot of good for a lot of people. Think of people currently having their value inflated away, people having their hard earned savings put at risk, or unfairly seized. Governments trying to censor the internet. You can be proud of the people you are helping. It's been a privilege and an honour to be part of this community. I wish you great success and despite my personal reservations I truly believe Bitshares can do it!
But for now I say goodbye...http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CjSzCuC7tOI
