Yep could be. Good thing nobody listens to me
The ethereum topic is doing the same thing. Everybody is so worried about what ethereum will do.
they have a cool name.
they wrote some new kinda code.
they are specializing in smart contracts.
hmmf.. you could prob do a goog search and find 10 other dapps and companies doing the same thing. ethereum has a geek at the helm which serves as a great mascot (sorry Vitalik, I do like you, I'm just sayin man) but that mascot is on the road so much (like Paul at Factom) that they don't even get to code as much as they'd like. I had a very interesting conversation with one of these guys and he told me flat out that he'd rather be doing something else, I don't want to say what it was, but it was not working for the company that he's working for right now. He's being stifled. If I had the money I'd back him for it and blow that company up for him.
Guys, please stop worrying about the competition. You've gotta focus. Bitshares is frign awesome and you know what it offers is world-changing and best yet, the ability for it to get hacked, shut down, made illegal whatever.. is virtually impossible. So, people may come and go just like with any new investment, that's ok. Robert Kiyosaki put out a game a while back called "Cashflow 202". It teaches you how to trade whether the market is going up, or down. Everybody keeps speculating an where the bottom is, seriously, who cares.
I hold darkcoin too so I have a quick place to shift I need to. I take profits (like a couple days ago) and move them into one of the nonperformers. Like Bitshares.
I believe in Bitshares because it has the most to offer and has the least possibility of being "shut down" by hackers, govs, whatever.
Buy on the dips, or bottoms or whatever. When the price of BTS is $1, $5 or $500 we'll probably have this same thread going once again, right?
Let the Devs work and please don't rush them. The next release has got to be bug free. No more new features until the bugs are gone. Restore faith and the cap goes back up, period.
