Can see it unfold above.. and the media version here:

Another black eye for Bitcoin.

Another reason for all of them to take a second look at BitShares.

Anybody here lose their escrow in this?

in what way does Bitshares prevent this from happening?

But I doubt that if somehow BitShares features aren't included in one of those markets, that people will take the time to use it, unfortunately. But it seems there are a few decentralized markets trying to make it, so we should try our luck with them. I don't know the status on OpenBazaar though. SDC is apparently creating their own market, though I think it cant have illegal stuff.

A decentralized BitShares market would definetly make a huge impact, it would complement all of our features. The problem with this is there are already people developing markets so it kinda feels like a waste of time and resources, specially when we don't have much atm. Like we are reeventing the same stuff. But maybe down the road in a couple years we could have one! Or someone might just fork one

more on topic: people who use darkmarkets should know that's an accident waiting to happen. Either it gets shut down by devs or by the police. It's a matter of time really.

BTC getting crushed so hard by this news.

At least BTS is holding up well, only down 4% while most down over 10%.
