Stress free recipe :
1) buy a shitload of BTS.
3) sleep well
4) When you're able to pay cam whores with some bitUSD, you're rich !
It will take either a lot of Bitshares or a very high market cap to be rich. Maybe the guy with 20 million Bitshares will be rich.
Thank you for approaching this with a level head. It bothers me to see so many people here who think this is going to make them rich.
Is there a chance it can? Sure.
Judging by how useful DACs can be, I'd even go so far as to say that it's a pretty damn good chance.
But first you have to be patient and sit through up after and down after down without cashing out.
When it goes past ten, you know you're going to get sick to your stomach if you the price starts dropping temporarily. You'd need to be a super strong hand.
Secondly, it will take a very long time. It took Bitcoin four years to get where it is today. Unless you're the dude with 20million BTS (and are thus already rich) it's going to take a price of 50-100 dollars a BTS to get most of us rich. That would be a market cap in the trillions. To achieve that we need major worldwide adoption.
Major worldwide adoption could be hindered by a competitor with a better marketing strategy, or by governments unanimously lowering the clamps, or by some unforeseen failure in DPOS, or a war in which EMPs get deployed, and god knows what else.
I'm not saying it can't make you wealthy. If you hold, and all goes as planned, it just might.
But what I'm saying is that it's important that we manage our expectations.
