We are also going to have libraries available so that other coins can integrate our coin.https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=761852.1720
Why use the XCP protocol for BitShares? This makes no sense because the only reason to use XCP is to add a layer to your "enter altcoin name here" and give it a UIA exchange.
All DPoS chains can implement UIA asset exchanges with relative ease without ever touching CounterParty. In fact, I believe bitshares' toolkit is in direct competition with counterparty. I believe this so much so that if we were really strategically thinking we would get developers to do something like the following:
1) [ANN] "DPoS Being Sharedropped on Doge, Litecoin, Darkcoin, ...etc"
2) [ANN] "the total supply of "EnterYourCoin
"Shares will be equal to the maximum supply of your coin!"
3) [ANN] "Congratulations, miners, we are sharedropping a 80% of that supply directly on you!...which means no more mining necessary..."
4) [ANN] "As a thanks for 5 sec tx times, visa level scalability and TITAN, we are going to lock away 20% of the total supply for 6 months as sharedrops onto those who made the DPoS toolkit possible. We are locking their supply to show you how confident we are in our technology and to prove that we believe in your community's and your devs' ability to recognize the value of our protocol. If you do not like it, dump the shares and just go back to what you were doing! If you DO like what DPoS offers you, please consider innovating with it and utilizing it to the fullest degree!"
This is actually basically the strategy CounterParty is employing (thus DogeParty, VeriParty...and I'm sure more to come in the future). But since our tech actually gives people real power over their chain and its development...I think the choice between DPoS and XCP protocols would be obvious.
