I will do the snapshot on December 14th, the anniversary of the American Revolution:
The first military encounter of the American Revolution occurred, when on the report of news carried by Paul Revere that the British intended to station a garrison at Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Major John Sullivan led a band of militia to Fort William and Mary, broke into its arsenal, and carried off arms and ammunition, 1774
This applies for BTS and PTS. I will only use the PTS snapshot *IF* someone from the PTS community can produce it for me by December 16. I will take the BTS snapshot. BitAssets will not be honored, shorts will gain 2x and this is intentional because I want to reward those most heavily invested in BTS.
This will be the LAST block produced on December 14th UTC. I will not ask any exchanges to honor the snapshot and will ask everyone who wants to participate in it to remove it from the exchanges. In fact I will go so far as to declare that the exchanges OWN the snapshot of funds deposited in them as an incentive for them to list Sparkle and to reward them for supporting the BitShares ecosystem.
Lets make life easy on the exchanges and NOT ask them to honor this snapshot, but DO ask them to list it after we launch.
