Abraham Lincoln; I googled that quote...anyway, I was thinking a primary focus of BitShares should be to partner with all of these semi-centralized "bit__" companies, e.g., bitreserve, bitgold.com, etc. Get them to work with us instead of against us. If the utility they offer alone was not already enough of an incentive, their name is actually a blessing in disguise.
Doing so would strengthen the peg by offering a path to actual reserves of bitassets, yet would not compromise the fundamental decentralized foundation of BitShares.
Any thoughts? Is this already happening and I just missed it? Anyone (maybe a potential delegate, hint hint a good way to get elected) interested in doing this?
