[ANN] Metaexchange.info bitBTC gateway, soft launch
« on: February 03, 2015, 08:08:07 PM »

Hi everyone,

It's finally time for the soft launch of the Metaexchange bitBTC gateway! Metaexchange is a bitshares exclusive on/off ramp into bitAssets via bitcoin. We're starting with bitBTC because there is currently nowhere to get it outside the internal exchange, but we will be adding ALL other bitAssets gradually over time. Please let us know which bitAssets you would like us to add next!

We are funded by the blockchain, making Metaexchange one of the first in-house bitshares products to launch. As such, we're 100% open source, so you can fork us - the link to the repository is on the site. We answer to you, so we'd love to hear your feedback!

http://metaexchange.info/

Cheers, Paul and Frank.

This is a "bridge", not a "gateway". Gateways issue UIAs and hold reserves.

But, awesome!

This is awesome!

We now have 3 bridges all operating in different niches: Shapeshift, exchange.BTSBOTS and metaexchange. I think all of these services will converge and begin competing over time, offering the same kind of full-range bridge services, and I assume will all begin to offer shapeshift-style API for easy integration with other products and services. It will be fantastic if we can have these 3 services all competing and fully integrated in our wallets as the tools that allows bitshares to use bitcoin as its rails to deliver an optimal and seamless user experience. With many competing services in this vital area users can choose the service that is offering the best spread and will benefit immensely.

Well done!!  +5%

What are plans for this platform going forward?

How can we take advantage of having our own in-house shapeshift?

This and a light client are what I've been waiting for:

this is a great first step to what I see as a killer bitcoin wallet (powered by bitshares)  \   Meta-Wallet

 +5% +5% Great work monsterer !

Limit adjusts as a percentage of holdings on each side. Right now the prices are fixed, hand adjusted, this will potentially change going forward.

i have to say - great work so far from Paul!  +5%

Well done!!  +5%

How can we take advantage of having our own in-house shapeshift?

we have our own ideas, but we are open for input!

at this point in time it is just - proof of concept, with small amount

as Paul said the next steps would be integration of more bitAssets like bitUSD!

we would also like to integrate this directly into the wallet. we are funded from the community and we want to have the spread as low as possible without loosing funds.

The advantage is we are only working for the success of BitShares and we can focus what the community thinks what we should do!

So i hope anyone will try the service and will give us feedback, what we should do better or different etc.
