One of these coins is not like the others
« on: December 05, 2013, 11:06:13 PM »

I was browsing CoinMarketCap.com just now and noticed something peculiar.  Out of the top ten crypto-currencies, only one has gone up in value over the past 24 hours.



It's nice to be invested in a coin with a price somewhat independent of the price of Bitcoin, but I obviously don't consider ProtoShares just another alt-coin.

You aren't invested in a 'coin'... you are invested in a 'share'.... the other thing that is unique on the list :)

I stand corrected.  Normally I am quite pedantic on terms, but my enthusiasm for ProtoShares may be overshadowing that.  At least I'm not wearing a t-shirt with the ProtoShares symbol and the phrase "to the moon" on it....yet.

It's not a coin; it's a share.  It's not a coin; it's a share.  It's not a coin...

Evan makes a good point, "there is a difference". Your original post is from Dec 5, today I can't even find a quote for Protoshares. The point is there are many ppl that want to be part of  this idea but don't have coding abilities. I am new here and trying to add value to an idea that I believe in.
Hayek argued that the goal of Laissez-faire markets is the preservation of the unique information contained in the price itself. Laissez-faire principle expresses a preference for an absence of non-market pressures on prices and wages, such as those from government taxes, subsidies, tariffs, regulation , or government-granted or coercive monopolies.(today) Price and value is determined by the continuous decisions of many people as to what that value is at any given moment.
 Where is the market? I want to buy Protoshares and support DAC.

The ProtoShares price is not shown on coinmarketcap.com when the BTSBlock.com ProtoShares block explorer is down.  I personally have bought PTS on CryptsyBTer has another PTS/BTC exchange.

Kudos on recognizing the value of PTS early.

The fact that PTS doesn't look like it's tied at all to the price of BTC is exactly what drew me to the concept.
