What is BitShares?
« on: December 18, 2014, 03:59:04 PM »

http://bytemaster.github.io/update/2014/12/18/What-is-BitShares/

Answering the question “What is BitShares?” has been one of the most difficult challenges I have faced. BitShares is so many things to different people and there are a thousand different ways of understanding what BitShares is. This post will tell you what BitShares is to me, its founder. Before getting into the long-answer to this question, let me give you the executive summary. BitShares is one of the most important tools that any community can use to secure their freedom; an idea whose time has come. After reading this post I bet you will agree.

That is the marketing that attracted me in the first place. That is the marketing that I was expecting to see from B the last year and didn't see. This is the BM that we all loved from the beginning.

Feel free to retweet.  I used the hashtag #bytemastersBlog, might be wise for the official Twitter account to utilize something similar...

Bravo BM, well broken down with clearly explained concepts and analogies.  I hope the power of your words and innovative tech resonates with everyone the way they have with us.   

BitShares is the most sophisticated and resilient tool for securing freedom that has ever existed.  Just imagine the implications for the future were humanity to adopt this amazing technology en mass?  Mind-boggling!

I love onions BM, but how about a Gobstopper!

....Hard to get your head around it all at first and impossible to swallow whole....
At the beginning, let's face it, it's messy....
But then you start to uncover all the interesting layers of different hue and flavor....
You can't help but stop every now and then to take a good look and admire some new discovery or check on progress.....
Sometimes you can have too much and need to take stock, have a breather....
If attacked, you'll simply break your teeth....
Once swallowed, it becomes a part of you....
And there's a Gobstopper out there for everyone.....

That's good stuff and that should be conveyed, at least in part on the homepage for first time visitors. In my opinion, if a new user goes to the homepage and walks away after 30 seconds with out knowing what bitshares is, then we're failing to get the message across.

Absolutely fantastic! Lucid, concise and comprehensive.

This material should feature prominently on the main website.

I also hope Methodx picks this up as a core element of the marketing materials.
