Around the 18:40 to 19:15 mark Dan discusses having a Craigslist for bitUSD and I think I can help here. I started up a company called Peerhub and it's a place for people to connect to buy & sell anything with each other just like Craigslist/Ebay/Etsy. It's extremely easy to use. I'd be happy for people in the community to use Peerhub as a place to exchange bitUSD with fiat!
A little about me. I'm an anarchist/libertarian/Austrian so philosophically I couldn't be more aligned. I'm totally impressed with everything about this ecosystem from UIAs to DACs to DPOS so I'm in ...and I want to help. Thank you Dan and the developers for the great work and innovations! I've followed Bitcoin from the sidelines from mid-2012 and also followed the Ripple/Stellar system, but Bitshares is my favorite platform right now after diving in deeper this past week.
Anyways the main focus with Peerhub is to go after mainstream users (not crypto users) and we're still iterating on marketing outreach, but cryptocurrencies are the future and I'd rather integrate with this technology sooner than later, especially with bitUSD (and eventually bitGold!) Let me know what you all think and hope you guys consider using Peerhub as a gateway to connect with locals to trade bitUSD. I know I'm looking to buy and sell some BTS and bitUSD here locally. I'll be spreading the word as well about Bitshares in general too..... thanks!
