I did ultimately find a comparison table on this forum outlining some of the differences among BTS and other cryptos, but I came across it only by chance and can't seem to find it now that I'm looking for it again.
This is just a thought, but perhaps the community could put that comparison table, if not an even more definitive or comprehensive comparison (video?) and put it somewhere where it'll be right smack 'in their face' when people come to the forum so they can readily see a link to go to for review.
From what I've been studying and researching, BitShares is most certainly in a league of its own (that's why I'm here and invested in it) and with sooo many new crypto-currencies (and decentralized "financial ecosystems", etc. i.e. NXT...?) vying for attention from the world, I think it would serve our community (and efforts) well for any and all newcomers to have clear-cut, easy-to-find, 'in-your-face'
access to the information that will quickly help show them the differences and benefits of BTS compared with all
the others popping up out there on the crypto-scene. (Not unlike the excellent newcomer "Video Tutorials", bam! right there, at the top of the list.)
We (BTS) not only needs to be 'different', 'better', than all the others out there, but we need to be able to quickly and easily get that information/understanding into any and all newcomer's hands.
It's a confusing new world out there for most people and the quicker and more efficiently we can "bring them up to speed", reducing their research time, confusion, and uncertainties, the better for everyone. After a long, hard day at work, etc. most people, regardless of their interest and enthusiasm, have limited time and energy to go on a long-and-wide information hunting excursion to find answers to some of the more fundamental questions they'll likely have in trying to decide what BTS is, how it differs from other potential cryptos and competitors (NXT?), etc. ( A big, bold, smack-in-your-face link: "HOW BTS IS DIFFERENT (& BETTER) THAN ALL THE REST")
I think the quicker (easier to find) we can get the basics answered for newcomers, the quicker they'll dig deeper into it all and feel more inspired, comfortable, and enthusiastic jumping on-board.
Anyway, just a thought. A consideration.
(Damn, I wish I had bookmarked that page with the comparison table already put together, because now I'm hunting again myself to track it back down.. It's a very helpful and useful comparison table, but it might go a little farther/deeper in its comparisons/differences with something like NXT, but, - where the hell was it again....?
