The Bitshares ecosystem provides a magical user experience
« on: April 06, 2015, 01:30:17 PM »

Guys, among all the bitching and moaning on this forum, I just wanted to share my Bitshares experience lately.

The Bitshares experience is so quick and easy that I find myself NOT using Bitcoin anymore. For example, I used to buy every Humble Bundle for Bitcoin and thought that it was easy and fast, but lately having to launch and sync that monstrosity (Bitcoin Core client) made me not want to do that. I don't trust any other wallets and syncing alone takes several hours.

Then suddenly I realized that I can spend BitUSD using Shapeshift! It took like two minutes and I spent like 10.30 BitUSD for a $10 game.

Then today I wanted to buy some factoids (factom presale tokens). I registered on koinify and instead of launching and shuffling my BTC around (witch would again take half a day) I decided to try Metaexchange. To my surprise it was even faster and easier than shapeshift! I made the transfer in the Bitshares client and BOOM the koinify page immediately says 'Congratulations, you've got yourself some factoids'.

Shuffling my assets around on the internal exchange has been a blast too. If BitBTC had any liquidity I'd happily convert most of my BTC to it.

I also just reactivated my Neteller account and the Net+ mastercard and loaded it with some BitUSD via shapeshift lens and after 7 days I will be able to take it out from any ATM for free! (not available in the US though). BitUSD really is like having an untouchable bank account in the cloud without having to worry about all the price nonsense. It's secure and accessible and you can spend it wherever Bitcoin is accepted. Pro poker players, dark market vendors, entrepreneurs in unfavorable jurisdictions, investors in unjust tax jurisdictions... Thinking how many people are DESPERATE for this product just makes my head explode.

you could use our internal exchange metaechange.info too - just takes 1 extra step. :)

This is so true, soon as everyone has a client they enjoy, we can all convert our BTC to bitBTC and our fiat savings to bitFiat which would raise the cap by several million alone. In fact, soon as we got multiple wallets and multi-sig I think we will all feel more secure in doing just this - at least I would.

Thanks for sharing your experiences!  I never use BTC or similar addresses anymore if I don't need to... using actual names like in TITAN is so much better in every way.

IKR, it's amazing, but it doubles the pain to see the price drop even though the product is here and it's awesome.

I find it so funny when people bitch and moan about BitShares.

We are building the infrastructure for the financial system of tomorrow for god sake and it's already faster and easier to use than bitcoin!

Translating to Chinese as we speak .

By the way , when you pay BitUSD to your prepaid card through Shapeshift , is it being converted into BTC ?

Awesome post and couldn't agree more  +5%.

I'm completely hooked using the internal exchange now, yes it's a little clunky but the fact that I can execute trades and have them confirmed in 10seconds is amazing. Also just look at some of the work being done by Cass on the UI! http://i.imgur.com/eC0UVnx.png

Not it's just a mock-up for a future 'dark theme' option.
