Honestly, we should all register for the free $20.  (Use an email you already getting heavily spammed in).

Later we can all dump the $20 of their bitGold, and use it to buy BTS and then create $20 worth of our bitGold.


If a ton of us do this it might make a small impact.

I like this. Imagine if all ~700 active voters were informed of this possibility
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

700 of us could get $14000, which would more than double the amount of our bitGold.

only number of users and liquidity
can make a asset currency, and this is why fiat be.
we just need more easy-use tools, and let people in via market promotion. I think making the tool good is the most important in the period.

And it is dangerous to keep liquidity this low. Other currencies can make the same assets and even called the same name. If they have more users and liquidity, they win. People will know they first and bitshares later. And people will say bitshares copy the innovation idea though some small group of people know it not true.
I doubt if some company just copy code of bitshares, and make it much easier to use, have more users and liquidity, they of course will let bitshares out the game. Bitshares just create innovation, others just use it. It has happened many times that winner is not who invent but who use it.

I know it sounds bizarre but BitGold gambling is the highest probability shot our BitGold has.
At the moment there's no recreational BitAsset or even BTS utility. BitGold dice would be a fun way to help BitAssets whereas shorting to yourself and managing your short is not. The Bitcoin numbers are compelling. 50% of all BitCoin transactions & volume were gambling up till last year & new sites have tremendous MoM growth.

Our numbers also don't lie, low CAP, volume & growth on our BitSilver & Gold. I can't see anything else that could conceivably rapidly grow & bootstrap it first based on any information/technique I've seen used in the past.

(Obviously gateways are key as well as promoting the decentralized exchange but I don't feel it's going to have the same/rapid impact, which I know sounds weird as gambling is a marginal trivial activity not directly related to what you think would drive BitAssets.)

history should give us the right lessons!

can you remember how MS-dos and Windows, even there was better operating systems at that time in existence, 
managed to get adopted from the masses?

This is e-gold 2.0 1.0 all over again.  This model has been tried and failed.

There just going to give $20 away for free for each email account?

I just signed up with 3 email accounts I use...whats to stop anyone from creating 100+ accounts?

If we all used multiple accounts we could just sell off & get it right back into bitshares...

Sybil attack bitgold.  8)

In all likelihood it will require some level of identity verification, i.e. signing up for their service and linking your identity. We'll see though.
