Are you saying that the market might not value trustless vs a tiny tiny bit of trust spread over 101 Delegates?
Bitcoin vs BitShares.
The way I see it the only advantage bitcoin has is that is requires no trust at all (if you have access to sufficient hashing power.)
I really like that BM has repeatedly suggested that BitShares must adapt to remain the perfect embodiment of a decentralized asset exchange, else someone else will fork and take the market with them. So I believe in the capable people currently coding BitShares to stick to that premise which should mean that my investment will always be in the most efficient system most likely to succeed.
The argument given for DPOS vs POS regarding centralization of producing blocks given on BM's blog is compelling and is a key reason I have confidence in BitShares long term.http://bytemaster.bitshares.org/article/2015/01/07/The-Most-Decentralized-Proof-of-Stake-System/
DPOS vs POW (Bitshares vs Bitcoin) is also another great read to instill confidence in BTS.http://bytemaster.bitshares.org/bitshares/2015/01/04/Delegated-Proof-of-Stake-vs-Proof-of-Work/
I think the only reason that the price of bts is so low right now is that it takes a lot of effort to read around to find all the information and due to our products not ready for mainstream release just yet.
As soon as people are presented with clear and simple reasons they should use or invest in bitshares the price should rocket - and suddenly Delegate pay goes through the roof and BitShares can fund x100's more development and complimentary services to the network. The bigger bitshares gets, the faster it grows!
