I believe "BitShares - The Decentralized Exchange" needs to support it's roots by allowing the trading and shorting of alt coins ASAP.
The addition of alts, by their inclusion, should spread the adoption and increase use of BTS without direct specific marketing:"Promotion by association and inclusion".
delegate.altfund will be funded by a user issued asset called ALTFUND. These will be sold for 1 BTS each until there are enough to fund the delegate. I believe this is the simplest and most cost effective way to judge support for this proposal. "500000BTS is alot to invest for the activation of one market which should bring 1000s of new users to bitshares."
90% of the delegates income will go towards initializing BitLTC, BitXRP .... 6% will be used for VPS costs and feeds and 4% burn.
User Issued Delegate Asset:
Alt Fund Delegate
1 ALTFUND = 1 BTS to directly fund a 96% delegate dedicated to initializing and marketing alt coin markets on bitshares.
User Issued Coin Assets:
Vote here https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=14847.0
1 LTC.ALTFUND ≈ 1BitLTC
This asset will directly fund the initializing of LTC (market issued - shortable) Litecoin market on bitshares.
1 XRP.ALTFUND ≈ 1BitXRP
This asset will directly fund the initializing of XRP (market issued - shortable) Ripple market on bitshares.
This proposal will also depend on the future help ofhttps://metaexchange.info/https://blocktrades.ushttp://btsbots.com/
and others to include BitLTC, BitXRP.... on their systems.
I have also made contact with alcurex.org who wishes to include bitshares assets on the exchange. Alcurex.org also has a USD bank deposit account and access to physical gold and silver. I will need help and instruction on adding bit assets to an existing exchange.
Thoughts, direction and help are more than welcome."Bitshares users should allow alt coins the benefit of our system by including their coins."
Apologies if this was discussed before.
