Wow this is actually pretty big. Wonder what other companies will follow suit after this.

The fact that the bitcoin price barely reacted is the strongest sign yet that the era of bitcoin is over. Meanwhile ripple is continuing its crazy rally. The age of altcoins is upon us, and bitshares will win.

for the active traders of bitcoin this is my estimate... bitcoin to $420-$450  within the next week and then plunge to  $200 - $300 range..I stopped carrying about bitcoin though the minute I learned about bitshares...When bitcoin goes to $50 - $100 range I might get interested again. Anything above $100 is expensive..lol..

Disclaimer: I am the worst trader ever so don't take me seriously...

Just want to point out that it's Microsoft and not Apple that has chosen to accept bitcoin :)

With this news Bitcoin barely jumped in price. When will people jump/convert into Bitshares? Now that is the real question.

why would msft accepting bitcoin provide a catalyst for an increase in price?? It's more corporate bullshit of converting btc immediately to fiat.  They could care less if bitcoin lives or dies.  It's just another revenue stream for them and in all honestly more of a PR move.  Get excited when they actually hold and pay in bitcoin or any crypto.

Totally agree .. the move will imho result in even more downward pressure as people pay stuff there with btc and msft coverts them to fiat ..

Payroll in crypto is the one big thing for crypto ..

My guess is that it will react very positive the next days. The majority of average people will be informed the next days... don't think that everybody is informed like we in light-speed mode, the crazy bitshares supporters...
