OmniBazaar: social-consensus-rejecting BTS fork
« on: November 07, 2014, 01:41:14 PM »

Hey folks, I'm here to snitch on a new crypto project, OmniBazaar/OmniCoin that announced on Bitcointalk a couple weeks ago that is openly forking BitShares to use TITAN and DPOS. They're trying to set up some kind of decentralized ebay, I gather. Their coin has one of these weird distribution models where they just give coins away for free. Despite this, they are not airdropping to AGS/PTS.

If you're someone who cares about this, throw some comments at their ANN thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=835575.0

Honor AGS and PTS,or BTS?

 ???

Yes. It's no secret that we are copying BTSX. (References to DPoS and TITAN are a dead give-away to anyone who knows BTSX.) But, we are also adding a few important features. Of course, OmniCoin will be open-source. So BTSX will be able to benefit from our work, just as we are benefitting from theirs.

Best,
Rick

Everything should be tried...in this grand experiment of ours.

Bluntly disregarding the social consensus .... checked!

We must blackball this, folks. I doubt it would succeed anyway, but as long as it does not honor this community by way of the social consensus, the project is dead in the water.

Honestly, I don't care much about it. It just bothers me that it barely makes reference to BitShares. It seems kind of disrespectful imo, not only to the devs but to the whole community.

This is the natural progression of the crypto world.  An innovation is created, builds a presence, a following, then follows the copy cats. This is standard and expected. People have the right to "do their thing" but as long as we make it very apparent that there is no connection, other than code, from us than we should be able to move past these type of trolls.

No...you simply serve to alienate the community and make us all look like greedy biscuits.  Instead say nothing anf help make a clone of it.
