And by next year you mean in 2030 or after, right?

Once you guys have a 1.0 client and some polish. Getting a bunch of non-crypto people to mass adopt an alpha product is counter-productive IMO. When you're on TED, then you're free to make your own call :)

This aside, there are plenty of good things about bitshares to talk about from market pegged assets to incumbancy value transfers and titan. DPOS will be interesting to discuss in 2015. You guys are under the need more data to market properly category.

This is a good presentation.  You have a talent for breaking down complex concepts into plain english.

Once there is a lot of data and some stability behind the Bitshares ecosystem, it would be a lot of fun to do a TED talk on Bitassets. The whole idea of creating a cryptodollar is what attracted me to Bitshares in the first place.

If this thread follows the same pattern as others, then you'll start by saying something nice (done). Next, you'll remind us how you built BitShares. Finally, you'll critique how things have gone to heck here after they didn't listen to you & would have been much better. And somewhere in there will be an Ethereum reference and/or the dropping of a big name or two.

But I prefer to think you came by to share your wonderful talk (Congratulations; I enjoyed it!) and to be nice. The following sounds fine to me.

Charles, would you consider being a delegate in BitShares?

Stan emailed me about this possibility months ago; however, I haven't invested a great deal of thought into it. I'm starting an education venture next year and I'd like to start having a bit of impartiality. That said, if a position is open where I could conduct research in the form of building models, aggregating data and analyzing it like a data scientist, then I wouldn't be opposed to it. 

Honestly, I'm most passionate about voting, ID management, and secure communication. In terms of a software project for next year, I think my talents could be better suited towards evolving mailvelope using dart and polymer alongside some new cryptographic primitives and blockchain linkage. This work would have a much greater and less polarizing impact than anything I've done previously.

Well I did watch the room last Friday.

I was discussing a hypothetical situation where one takes DPOS and other components of the Bitshares ecosystem and sharedrops litecoin to a new chain. It was meant to be a discussion about how incumbancy value can be transfered and what factors aid or detract from it. Not a fully formed coin idea. Obviously the thread was poorly handled. Moving people off of bitcoin is going to require creativity and some solid data.

Watched and enjoyed - although there was nothing new to a long time reader of this and other forums.

There were over a thousand people in the audience and only a few of them had ever heard of bitcoin much less things like smart contracts.

Yes, good job. I actually meant that I enjoyed your talk even though there was nothing new in it to me. It must have been fascinating and insightful for your target audience.
