When I noticed that the BitShares robohashes were changed, I got sick to my stomach:https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=13786.0
My new robohash no longer has its cylon eye! See my avatar. It is what my old robohash looked like before this unscheduled and unelected change to our company.
I just wasted hundreds of man hours developing a business model, website, marketing strategy, & incentive/compensation plan. Not to pump BitShares or become a delegate, but to put food on my table. The International BSGO Gaming League is (was) centered around an instantly recognizable and impossible to impersonate “cylon” BitShares address where 100% blockchain auditable and hopefully someday, automated, competition registration pool/payouts would occur. The legitimacy of utilizing a blockchain to guarantee fiscal transparency would give my professional competitive World League an absolute advantage over the variable-talent BSGO factions that currently litter the collegiate competitive landscape.
With this market niche, I could easily recruit the world’s most talented BSGO gamers and concentrate on marketing while the blockchain transparently handled all the financial accounting. Nobody would ever send money to the wrong address because the robohash as well as the BitShares account name was indicative of the business model. Best performances would be enshrined in the BSGO Hall of Fame on the new website. You guys were not the only ones counting down to your awesome new website. Imagine if you went to BitShares.org and saw that the countdown calendar had just been increased by 90 more days! http://bitshares.org/
Tomorrow you guys will be celebrating your BitShares "grand opening", while I'm shuttering my BitShares business. Nobody else is negatively affected. This makes me the first ever non-delegate to be fired from a Digital Autonomous Company because my business property & livelihood have just been taken from me arbitrarily by the DAC. My boss, the BitShares DAC, has technically fired me, meaning that I am no longer allowed to operate my BitShares business for compensation.
Am I pissed? Damn right I am, but I’m no more likely to get restitution than the guy who sent money to the wrong BTER or the guy who let down his firewall is. The only mistake that I made was to trust in a DAC in an entrepreneurial capacity without coming to the table with big time money and contacts like Eddie and Cobb. Nothing against them, I just can’t afford an ICO, and all that hype and stuff.
Let my punishment for being broke and having faith in our new robot overlords serve as a warning to all you small time micro-entrepreneurs like me. May you be as lucky as I am hungry. Now I’m forced to attempt to pick up the pieces of my uninsured shambles of a business model before my bills do me in. My vanishing intellectual property was my business.
Close your eyes and imagine a world where Google, Coke and McDonalds are forced to operate under a new business name.

Open up the client
Robohashes get replaced
Does the new PTS DPOS or any other DPOS clone coin honor the original robohashes, or am I the most ridiculous entrepreneur ever?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqmqN7an9SE
