Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?
« on: December 28, 2014, 03:59:31 AM »

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?

Absolutely, having them become gateways and/or accepting a bitasset as direct payment would be a great partnership.

Exactly... BitReserve could issue BRGOLD to trade against BitGold.

Maybe Americans can use the Ripple on-ramp in the states to buy BTS more easily if such a path provided ?

What about accepting bitGOLD as payment?  Like btc38 accepting bitCNY as if it was real CNY.

They may want to support the use of gold as a currency, in which case encouraging the use of bitGOLD is good for them indirectly.

From their Gold page:
https://bitreserve.org/en/our-vision/gold

"We’ve partnered with leading institutional precious metals provider GBI to ensure all Bitreserve gold is backed by real gold, not Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). If you have further questions about our Gold Card, please see our FAQ." -

Maybe real gold suppliers should be contacted as ideal merchants to accept bitGOLD as payment?
