They are currently gathering funds by selling their shares on this Cryptostocks exchange. Couldn't they do the same on BitShares by issuing an asset?
I think it's a win-win situation, they get exposure and a possible simple way to issue dividends and get more funding while we have the assets of one of the coolest bitcoin projects out there! And finally some bitcoin fanatics could understand we aren't their enemies, that we support bitcoin, obviously and maybe the communities could even start to get along better. People would see we support crypto, instead of thinking we are their enemies
